From our Blog to God's Ears...

Our crystal ball was sharp. What we wrote on this blog, May 22, 2007:
"Pervez Musharraf's quixotic twilight struggle against the Chief Justice of the Pakistan Supreme Court is symbolic of the tyrant's natural aversion to the Principle of Law. Tyrants abhor objective realities that inconvenience the free reign of their compulsions to enact destructive scenarios, oftentimes mirroring their bleak inner landscape, ravaged from a war-torn childhood. Reason #7,432 to do something about international conflicts and their effects on children, no? However, whether by History's Dark Irony or by the careful machinations of the Boys at Langley, Benazir Bhutto -- no stranger to corruption, she -- is back, and may be the saving grace of the rapidly disintegrating political scene in Pakistan. And that, quite frankly, is not a bad thing."
Today, August 16th, NYTimes: " The Bush administration, struggling to find a way to keep Gen. Pervez Musharraf in power amid a deepening political crisis in Pakistan, is quietly prodding him to share authority with a longtime rival as a way of broadening his base, according to American and Pakistani officials.
"General Musharraf, an important ally since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, has lost so much domestic support in recent months that American officials have gotten behind the idea that an alliance with Benazir Bhutto, a former prime minister, would be his best chance of remaining president."
Perhaps The Corsair should consult with the State Department on foreign policy?
