At present, a democratic Pakistan is likely to be a brief prelude to the long, dark night of a Taliban-style tyranny.You've just gotta love the loony left.
Bhutto, as it turned out, lived only as long as Musharraf's emergency measures lasted. When he lifted them under renewed American pressure, she died.

You can't have it both ways, dummies.
