Pervez Musharraf wants to declare “state of emergency” to fight Bush “war on terror”.

The latest Pakistan news is that Pervez Musharraf is trying to convince Bush regime to let him declare state of emergency to fight their “war on terror”. Benazir Bhutto quickly rejected state of emergency fearing that it will be suspension of fundamental human rights. The militants are fighting Pakistani troops in North Frontier Province with popular support of the people, there was news that people have collected over US$ 25,000 in just three hours for militants. The battle between Pakistan troops and militants continue in Northern region of Pakistan which killed atleast 16 Pakistani soldiers. The clashes came a day after a suicide bomb attack less than a kilometre from the army headquarters in Rawalpindi killed at least seven people, including policemen and civilians, and left 11 others wounded. A suicide bomber on a motorcycle rammed a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) bus, killing at least eight people on Thursday as militants inspired by al Qaeda intensified a campaign to destabilize President Pervez Musharraf.
Pervez Musharraf and Bush must admit that their “war on terror” was a mistake, as it is not going in the direction of victory for Pakistan and US in the near future. The situation in the NWFP is becoming more violent increased attacks on Pakistan troops and as well as attacks on US troops in Afghanistan. The state of emergency will not suspend the fundamental humans of common people but it certainly will suspend the Benazir Bhutto dream of getting into power third time. The violence and killing will continue for Pakistani troops and US occupation military in Afghanistan if the rulers just accept their mistakes and try to resolved the conflict with negotiations. The Pakistan military and the US occupation military can’t get rid of Taliban from NWFP and Afghanistan, they will kill few hundreds, who will be replaced by few thousands more whose brothers fathers get killed by the military to take revenge. The way “war on terror” is executed will last for ever.
|“In battle, government troops are only trained to run away,” remarks Akbar Hussain, the Taleban commander for Kabal region.“We don’t want to kill them because they are also Muslim, but [the country’s military ruler] Gen Musharraf is using them to advance the Americans’ agenda.”
Officials say Taleban militants beheaded at least eight government troops during two days of fighting over the weekend. Independent sources say the number may be twice that.
The government has accused “outsiders” of perpetrating trouble in Swat, a charge Mr Hussain dismisses.
He attributes the beheading of the troops, a hallmark of well-trained fighters linked to the Taleban and al-Qaeda, to “ordinary local people who lost their loved ones” in Islamabad’s radical Red Mosque.
