Default Musharraf Resigns as President of Pakistan

Stepping Down to Avoid a Protracted Impeachment Battle

Karin von Hippel

Bowing to pressure from Pakistan's newly-elected civilian government, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, once a top U.S. ally, said Monday that he will resign from office immediately, ending nearly nine years of largely military rule under his leadership.

Musharraf's resignation Monday signaled the end of a long and important relationship with the United States. Musharraf was one of the first Muslim leaders to declare allegiance to Washington after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. With his support, the United States was allowed to use several military bases in Pakistan, while Pakistani army troops were deployed to pursue Taliban and al-Qaeda insurgents sheltering in the country's rugged tribal areas near the border with Afghanistan.

Karin von Hippel, co-director, Post-Conflict Reconstruction Project and Senior Fellow, Center for Strategic and International Studies, was online Monday, Aug. 18, at 2 p.m. ET to what effect the Musharraf resignation will have on U.S.-Pakistan relations.


The transcript follows.

why don't give us your prediction then you dumb fucks?
I couldn't even guess what will happen.. hopefully nothing much will change
it could possibly become an Islamic republic like Iran, if the people taking over now get forcefully overthrown.

read the interview ..

For what it's worth, I posted the story not only because is it fairly important news I posted it because it is a fairly important factor for if and when the US and Israel decide to attack Iran. The Russian incursion in to Georgia is also interesting news.I think we can expect some fairly interesting power plays in that whole area in the next few years..
