What's with Zardu?
The latest issue of The Economist points out:
'On the eve of Mr Zardari's arrival—accompanied by dozens of journalists at his expense—thousands of PPP supporters were arrested in Lahore. On arrival, he was bundled into a police car and driven to his own house in the city. The journalists were roughed up by police and their audio-tapes confiscated.
But Mr Zardari had no words of comfort for them—or for the thousands of PPP activists arrested on his behalf. Instead, he praised the government of General Pervez Musharraf'.
As every school kid well knows, grovelling to a bully gets you no where other than a prospect of further beatings.
