Pakistan's Musharraf will resign



Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who is facing impeachment by parliament, says he will resign. The charges against the president include violation of the constitution and gross misconduct. Mr Musharraf said he was confident that the charges against him would not stand but that this was not the time for more confrontation in Pakistan.

this means increased instability, actually

now there is a power vacum, a void in pakistan

what will the new pakistan look like? Who knows, thats for tomorrow to show us.

In my personal opinion, this is Bad news.
I smell another war on the horizon.


This time tho , India will be more than willing to participate.

But how will china react? oh man the uncertainties are endless...

Instability increases across the globe

Musharraf resigns - CNN

This will have some serious problems in this region & to the American interests. Musharraf was holding things together for some time & now it is time to see changes in many things in and around Pakistan.

Musharraf was a piece of trash. Good that he's gone.

If there's a crazy guy at Pakistan helm, it won't be long before India take cares of the problem. So it's not our problem... even if we created it by giving them nukes and helping Musharraf.

i disagree , a nuclear conflict between Pakistan and India is a INTERNATIONAL problem.

and could easily spark WW3 global conflict

Remember, China considers Pakistan its counter to India

its an extremely complex situation, and I can only hope this turns out peaceful and for the better outcome

If an islamic extremist leader comes forward to lead pakistan, it could be the trigger not only to a new war in the region but the foundation for the Islamic Empire......but that I mean you'll have a nuclear armed Pakistan, next to a high tech and powerful society of Iran, with a bunch of smaller central asian nations that are muslim jumping on board.

It could quickly become a tidal wave of extremism all with the one goal.......A Muslim Caliphate (i think thats the correct term)

Being economically and militarily formidable with their new empire, Could quickly organise allies across the mideast.

Guarantee Saudi Arabia's royal family would be kicked out by their own people with the newly found power of Islam spreading across the globe.

You'll see the same occuring from Morocco and across northern africa.

What a worst case scenario here is that within a short space of time, if the new leader has some brains about him, there could be a Muslim entity on this earth Stretching from Morocco in Northern Africa across the Sahara to eastern Africa, the entire mideast and Central Asia down to the largest muslim populated nation of the world Indonesia.

It would be like nothing we have ever seen in history before next to Genghis Khans empire (geographically speaking).

That is, if the west allows it to grow.

Like it or not, this WILL cause a big war. Nobody will let Pakistans nuke get out of control and Im sure India and the US already have drawn up plans to raid Pakistans installations, which could be a trigger in itself for more conflict.

Israel would be feeling pretty bloody nervous right about now. Who will be stopping those nukes from getting smuggled out now???? Big Question.

We know how corrupt Pakistans defence ministry is.

watch for dirty bombs in europe by years end, easiest and most accessible target for the extremist.

Watch this space, this Pakistan situation could go either way and quickly too.

Its like the whole house of cars of world political stability is in the process of falling apart, like its all playing its own part in a theater. Not looking good.

That is a distinct possibility M_M , i wont discount it. The level of instability spreading around is now apparently becoming Expodential in form.

Turning into a muslim caliphate however, is the worst case scenario.
It is very possible.
But there are other possibilities also, that we need to look at.

The main thing here is, keeping our eyes on those nuclear weapons/technology. As it is extremely dangerous.

BTW - does anyone know the extent of Pakistan's work in the field of Bio-weaponry? Germ warfare.

Does anyone know if they have an active program or even if there is rumors of a program?

In my eyes, Bioweapons are harder to control/contain. And would be a far worse scenario.

Hopefully the reality will be a moderate inbetween future.

What i mean is, that it is also possible that moderates will come to power and keep the status quo, and not disrupt the region any more than it already is.

Alot of this rests on India to keep things over there stable. God help them all.

I got a feeling I know one thing that it means...

Bush woke up to one heck of big headache today!!
I about fainted when I saw this news on cnn.
will he be replaced with a western puppet, or an islamic extremist? ummm....just got to ask myself...what's wrong with just letting the country pick the leader they want, ya know, the one that will work in the interest of that country, instead of forcing it to go along with this group or that group's agenda?

US has pulled the plug out on puppet musharaf and now he's gone.Musharaf turned his country into a hell hole for the safety of the people of US and israel.Its now time Pakistan gets a new leader who cares about his own people.

Pakistani people are celebrating today and are looking forward to their new leaders who won't sacrifice their blood for others.

what a intresting imaganitive post,
newly found Islam spreading accross the globe,
you should run for US president


anyhow good for you

on topic

this is good a US puppet and dicator supported by the US
has finaly fallen, not by US air strike or the shelling of an entire country
but by the people of its country.

i find it funny that people quickly assume that Muslim extremists will take power and lack the time to look into the people that are majority in power in parliment in that coutry,


A good step for pakistan.

yes its benahzir bhuttos old party...god rest her soul.I think there will be slight friction between the military and new government,but nothing major..large percentage of pakistanis wanted this so dont expect anything riots etc from them...imo this is a good thing,there will probably be a new stance on tackling the fundamentalists on the border with afghanistan.

So now that Musharraf resigned who will be the next leader? What will happen to the tribal regions between Pakistan and Afghanistan? Will the US go into the tribal areas now that Musharraf has resigned?
