Bisharraf Strikes Again

.................................................................Art by "Grumpy Old Indian Man"

Pakistan's Pervez Musharraf, or as the Saccharinist likes to call him, Bisharraf (which is Persian for "dishonorable") has made a farce of his country and himself once again. As we all know, he has led his country into being one of the handful of nations, let alone predominantly Muslim nations, that has fully and openly supported Herr Bushler's crusade against humanity.

(Another embarrassing member of this list is the shanty-town of Afghanistan which is supposedly-led by that former San Francisco restaurateur Hamid "I could have saved my people, but I'd rather kiss US ass" Karzai.)

This week has been a busy week in Bisharraf's diary: his autobiography has been published and is being released and, in an effort to no doubt quell his good friend Bushler's detractors while at the same time try to stay in the good favor of the growing Islamic fundamentalist movement in his country, (including the very pious members of his own government who don't consider themselves fundos but are still conservative and backward in their social beliefs, to say the least: just look at the deplorable condition of laws against the rights of women -- especially rural women -- in Pakistan.) Bisharraf has made some uncharacteristically antagonistic-against-the-US claims in a 60 Minutes interview:
"The intelligence director told me that [Richard Armitage] said, 'Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the stone age'," he said about the immediate post-September 11th climate, essentially stating that the US threatened Pakistan if they would not join the coalition against terror. "I think it was a very rude remark," the little man added.

Herr Bushling today has feigned schock at such claims saying he was "taken aback" by these statements -- though obviously Bisharraf never openly implicated him, only an underling in his government. Bisharraf and Bushling then proceeded to smile for the cameras and shake their dirty hands for the world to see.
