    Naturally, this did not happen.

    I know rumors are titillating and fun, but rumors and idle gossip never serves any good nor does any good comes out of it.

  2. […] Well that could change pretty soon – there are rumors of a coup sharraf/ Don’t get your hopes too high though. The players in the political arena of our western neighbor are as good at the “more of the same” game as our homegrown netas. The information minister Muhammad Ali Durrani was quick to deny the rumors saying Mush is “fit as a horse” though .. […]

    What is that strage fascination that some of our Indian friends have with Pakistan and Pakistani politics? Why this obsession? Get over it, please. We went our way, you go yours. I am sure there is plenty of interesting things happening in your own politics to keep you busy. Dont get me wrong please. I want you to be our friend, but this obsession is not healthy. And what is the point in trying to pick silly fights? I am sorry, we are not interested. Have a good day.

    I have been closely watching every step that Musharaf has been taking over the past 10 days.. I’m quite curious and may be someone has some answers:

    1. Why is Musharraf on a 18 day (almost 3 week) foreign trip? How many Heads of State stay away from running a country for so long? I understand that more than 90 people from Pakistan Govt are part of this entourage.

    2. Why is he going after Armitage (whom he claims to be a close friend) and embarrasing the CIA (Pakistan got blood money running into the millions for the 368 AQ people who were turned over to the US) by revealing what many deem to be state secrets? Was all of this just to promote his book?

    3. Why is he going after India by claiming that India was ready to attack Pakistan during the Kargil war and that India’s Scientists used the same AQ Khan centrifuge design for their nuke program?

    According to this article, Indian establishment is not too happy with these claims and have rejected all of it as a ‘pack of lies’,20867  ,20482985-2703,00.html

    4. Why does he willingly reveal the most ’embarassing’ decisions that Pakistan had to make in the wake of the 9/11 attacks? Does he not realize the devastating impact these revelations could have on the psyche of everyday Pakistanis who are already riled up by America’s actions in the middle east and have voiced repeated doubts about America’s real intentions towards Pakistan? Who pour fuel over fire?

    The answers to these questions are not easy or straight forward. But, nevertheless, they need to be asked.
