Mushareff-*No Democracy for Me!* Plus-Packing the Supreme Court with Sycophants

Not really a surprise, is it, that, after getting rid of his opponents on the Pakistan Supreme Court, the *new* Supreme Court says Mushareff can serve another 5 years. Not with any elections, mind you. He was already a military dictator and that's Just How He Plans To Stay. He said he would give up his military uniform as long as there aren't any elections and he gets to stay as president. Oh. Okay, then,

But here's what I find horribly disturbing.

The face-off leaves the Bush administration with limited options in steering its nuclear-armed ally back toward democracy. Senior Bush administration officials have said publicly that they have no plans to cut off the billions of dollars in military aid that Pakistan receives each year.

So. No penalties for Mushareff even though he is sticking his finger in Bush's eye; we don't have money here for roads, but we'll keep on funding Pakistan.
