Ally or Adversary?


The influential Atlantic Monthly carried out an interesting poll by asking a group of US foreign-policy authorities about Pakistan and its leader, Pervez Musharraf.

The results were published in its December 2006 issue: PAKISTAN: ALLY OR ADVERSARY?

When asked about their perceptions of General Pervez Musharraf’s role as a US ally:
68 percent said that as a partner Musharraf is “not always helpful, but is at least as good as the likely alternatives”.
23 percent said that Musharraf appeared to be unwilling to crack down on militants and was “in need of stepped-up pressure” from the US..
9 percent said that the Pakistani military leader was an “active and indispensable ally in the fight against terrorist groups”.


When asked as to what type of future government was likely to replace Musharraf’s regime:

63 percent said that it would be another military dictatorship.
22 percent said that it would be replaced by democratic rule.
15 percent said it would be substituted by an “Islamic theocracy”

Atlantic Monthly logo came from article on Superchefblog, right?

Dude, link to the article, out of courtesy to the source: don't suck up someone else's bandwidth by glamming onto their images.

A genuine Replica Watches News is created using high quality materials. The face of the watch, for instance, is created using sapphire crystal. This is so hard that it cannot be scratched with a diamond. The Rolex watch movement is of such quality that the hands move smoothly and not with the slight 'judder' that can be visibly seen in other watches.
