Pakistan Govt to review role in 'war on terror'


www.abc.net.au

Pakistan's new Government will review the country's role in the US-led "war on terror," former Pakistani premier Nawaz Sharif said after holding talks with a top American envoy.

Mr Sharif, whose party is in a Coalition that trounced President Pervez Musharraf's allies in elections, said he wanted peace around the world but did not want Pakistan turned into a "murder-house" to achieve that aim.

This is potentially huge if they pull away from the war, considering how much the US relies on that Pakistan border, particularly in an upcoming Iran war.

Not to mention the help Afghanistan was hoping to get from them, however, they do say in the article they would like to fight their own war. Maybe they just want out of Bush's war and look after their own.

Well this thread confirms how much the US needs Pakistan... here is their reply of sorts:

Bush waives law to give millions to Pakistan's anti-terror fight

Iran is going to happen.

Pakistan is heading out? Wow!

Without them US is in deep, deep trouble. But I understand, how many time in recent months US has launched drones and rockets to their soil without even giving information to Pakistan government? I count at least two times.

If you show lack of trust, thats what you going to get! Bush is again failing in most important act of war, in diplomacy.

Well, Pakistan was happy to go along with the GWOT so long as the US wrote checks and bombed all around them, but on them is obviously a different story.

Musharraf is losing influence and distancing is going on, and the US special forces/CIA presence in the border regions is obviously not popular; here's the result. All politics is local.
