The American Embassy here expressed serious concerns today over the arrest and detention by the Pakistani government of more than three dozen opposition politicians who had planned to stage protest rallies against the re-election of the president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf.No, seriously....
“The reports of arrests of the leadership of several major Pakistani political parties are extremely disturbing and confusing for the friends of Pakistan,” the embassy said in a statement released to the news media. “We wish to express our serious concern about these developments. These detainees should be released as soon as possible.”

Why is anyone in the US Government opposing the WhateverOnWhomever in Pakistan!!! I know that Pakistan is no Iraq, but shouldn't we be supporting the rights of a military dictatorship to suppress those who oppose the divine rule of Great Leader????
I mean isn't that what our troops are fighting for??? the blind loyalty of a citizenry who will cower at the call of the Great Leader to what ever is making the Great Leader Great!!!
