Musharraf, another American tool bites the dust!


by Jaleho

The senior regional partner of US in its "war on terror", Musharraf,  was not "effective" enough for the US. At least he's leaving more honorably than Saddam Hussein since he didn't make free cannon fodders out of his people for America as much as Saddam did!

US has learned that it can not keep its dictators in power until people boil against them to the dangerous limits of Shah of Iran, or Saddam Hussein. But, one way or the other, US has no choice as it has limited money and limited power to keep all its puppets on the throne against the will of millions of its people. Not long after watching Saakashvili in tears, US officials had to watch the emotional farewell of Prevez Musharraf.

I wonder how Lee Bollinger, president of Columbia University , feels now. If he has a memory slightly better than a fruit fly, he should feel really bad that as the head of a reputable university he has made such a public ass out of himself!

After inviting Iran's democratically elected president by a majority of Iranians, Bollinger greeted Ahmadinejad with the lines which became AIPAC's officials for months to come. He "welcomed" Ahmadinejad as the "petty cruel dictator of Iran", while this was his welcome to the military dictator of Pakistan a couple of years earlier:

" Rarely do we have an opportunity such as this to greet a figure of such central and global importance.  It is with great gratitude and excitement that I welcome President Musharraf and his wife, Sehbah Musharraf, to Columbia University....

We at Columbia are eager to listen.  As a community of scholars and as students and faculty who come from everywhere in the world, we take a great scholarly and personal interest in what the President has to say.  The development in Pakistan over the past several years, from its economic growth to its fight against extremism and terrorism, are vital issues for all of us.  Mr. President, as you share your thoughts and insights you will give our students, the leaders of tomorrow, first-hand knowledge of the world their generation will inherit."

Reminds me of Carter shaking hand with Shah of Iran calling him the "Island of stability" just before he was kicked out. 

Mr. Lee, say good bye.

The only problem would be the American desire to install an even BIGGER lackey than Musharraf in Pakistan :-)

Boy, Pakistan is going to be messy AND scary, no?

I mean, I am sure that everyone except for Cheney and some carzies around him are happy that Georgia was NOT a NATO member already and they can just kiss Sakaashvili good bye. Just get your lousy 2000 troops back and please shut up and don't make any further noise!

But huge Pakistan with very uncertain future and possibility of even a US direct intereference to "protect" nuclear material maybe??!

Bollinger is a great American and a great academian who exposed the true fascist face of the illegal barbaric Islamic regime.

Musharraf by allowing free

by Farhad Kashani on

Musharraf by allowing free parlimentary elections, accepting its outcomes and resigning without bledshed showed a committment to democratic principles that we Iranians can only dream about the IRI doing the same. 

Pakistan army is curropt from within because of the influence of Islamic elements inspired by Iran, Musharraf tried to fix it, he couldn't. It was curropt way before Musharraf become presdient.

Who are you trying to fool?

Bollinger is a disgrace to academia

I agree with your views on Musharraf, and I say good riddance to an anti-democratic, military dictator!

Regarding Lee Bollinger, the president of Columbia University... This fellow is a disgrace to what still makes America great: its university system. His treatment of Musharraf vs. Ahmadinejad is the classic "kiss up, kick down" behavior that you see commonly among politicians, corporate leasers, etc., but hopefully not as much in academia. A few more leaders like him at a couple more Ivy league schools and you might see a major change in the openness of U.S. universities to unpopular voices, to foreign students, and so on. This would be very unfortunate, and truly signal the decline of the U.S. empire.

Thanks for the article.
