ISLAMABAD - PAKISTAN: Former Pakistani coup-maker turned 'democratically-elected' President Pervez Musharraf appears to be ready to stage a comeback as he assiduously courts various and sundry PML (non-Nawaz) factions.
Lauding the recent Supreme Court decision to disbar the Sharif brothers from running for political office, Mush declared: "Two down, one to go".
When asked to clarify what his remark meant, the pudgy commando-turned Army General-turned military dictator-turned President-turned democrat-turned civilian-turned international 'speaker' told the media: "Everybody wants to run Pakistan - first it was BB the self-proclaimed Daughter of the East, then Nawaz Sharif who dared to dismiss me, now the great looter "Mr. Ten Percent" Asif Ali Zardari. None of them is qualified like I am. They have all had two turns at ruling, now it is my second turn to kick the can"
Reminded that he was responsible for the upsurge in militancy by running with the hare while hunting with the hounds, and the only way he could come back to power was by staging another coup, General Mushy twitched his mustache like Brer Rabbit on antihistamines: "I have never stopped being a commando guy or the real COAS. Just ask Kayani and ISI Chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha who is 'really in charge'in Pakistan. Even Colin Powell was taken in by my smooth talk.
The famous French saying "Apres moi le deluge" has come true. Militancy is flooding Pakistan. The Americans know they are losing not only Afghanistan but Pakistan as well. I can wait I have lots of time - soon Obama and Biden will come running back for my advice; I shall charge them a million US dollars - then I will show them who I really am!"
