Today's Cartoon: Pakistan Pres. Pervez Musharraf Reveals Post 9/11 Threats by United States

Ah ha! Now I know why Canada has been so devoted to the United States and dedicated to its "War on Terror"; we must have been threatened to be bombed back to the Stone Age, just like Pakistan!

Fortunately for us however, most Canadians live somewhere within 200 km of the United States border, which means that the majority of our country (the 2nd largest in the world) is pretty much already in the "Stone Age" to begin with ;)

Well, I guess this means that Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf is now officially off the White House Christmas card mailing list. First, he appears at odds with President Bush over allowing US forces to enter Pakistan to pursue "Al Qaeda" and now he accuses the United States of basically bullying him into cooperating to begin with. This along with his recent ceasefire agreement with pro-Taliban militants along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border and a dispute with Afghan leader Hamid Karzai over who is to blame for the increase in violence in Afghanistan; and you begin to get the impression that President Musharraf isn't all that thrilled about his country's forced participation in the "War on Terror" anymore.

Either that, or he's just feeling a little under appreciated and all he needs are a few words of "encouragement" from the Bush Administration ;)
