Musharraf imposes martial law. What a surprise.

I wonder if this is a preview of what the U.S. will look like in a couple of months after the dollar collapses.

Frankly, I don't see how you can rule Pakistan any differently. Fanciful visions of democracy as a miraculous cure put aside, the fact is that democracy is a result of prosperity; not the other way around.

Pakistan is a vicious country where tribal chiefs proudly boast how they razed the villages of neighboring and killed thousands of their inhabitants. (Forgot the source, it may have been a TIME Magazine's article.) You'll have a prosperous democracy there about as soon as you'll have a sty of pigs performing a Mozart concerto. Not going to happen.
