Musharraf Deports Opponent

Within hours after arriving home in Pakistan, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was charged with corruption by the Musharraf government and then placed on a plane and forced to leave Pakistan. The pakistan Supreme Court had ruled Shaif was entitled to return home to Pakistan, but Musharraf fears that Sharif will enter the race for president. Musharraf apparently doesn’t want anyone around who can challenge his quest for power.

George Bush tells the world America stands for democracy, and his friend in this quest is President Musharraf of Pakistan. Perhaps, Bush can explain this blatant violation of the Pakistan constitution and a decision of the Pakistan Supreme Court.
