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

Why the hell is everyone bashing Musharraf?
He kept power away from the radicalists and kept up a strong campaign to clear Pakistan's tribal areas of Taliban so they wouldn't become the breeding grounds they are for Extremism.
With influence and ascension strongly grounded in the military there was no chance for Pakistan's radical political parties to have a shot of coming to power.
Now your going to see that change very quickly..
Despite his flaws he was Pakistan's best chance at remaining secular and in other words, pro-Western.
Without him and his iron-fisted controls your going to see Islamic Fundamentalism rear it's ugly head in Pakistan too.
Sheesh you people really need to do your homework....
What would you rather have? An Islamic Fundamentalist with Nuclear Weapons or a pro-Western dictator with Nuclear Weapons...
Americans make me laugh... you can't have your cake and eat it too.
What a puppet in Pakistan wasn't good enough, he needs to lick your ass too?
