Emergency in Pakistan or..

Musharraf knows if he goes for elections he is out. Advantage may not be to Benazir Bhutto either as it seems. So lets connect the dots. Bhutto returns and an assassination attempt shakes the entire region. Could this be a handy-work of Mushharraf too? Using this as a precursor to impose emergency in the state. Reminder guys.. he is an Army commando. He knows what he is playing against. He knows how far the world will go. Can the west live with a democratically elected Taleban/Al-Queda sympathetic govt in Pakistan? I guess not and he knows it. A few arrests here and there and he is extended for another two years. The problem is if the world does not do anything now then the people who do believe in democracy will be alienated further.
