Musharraf Rejects US Call to End Emergency: Today's Cartoon

I wonder how much Pervez Musharraf savors the opportunity to ignore the demands of the United States; and in turn, get back at the same government that once allegedly threatened to bomb his country back to the stone age, if he didn't do exactly as they wanted.

The way I see it, if spreading democracy across the Middle East was as easy as the Bush Administration led their country to believe, then there wouldn't have been such a need for them to start tweaking the definition of "democracy" at home, so that it more closely aligns with the situation in places like Iraq and Pakistan... which I guess in a way DOES make it as easy as they claim.

It also means that if all else fails and President Bush is unable to guide Pakistan towards democracy through free and fair elections, he could simply steer "democracy" closer to Pakistan... by having marshal law in the U.S. as well.
