An Awkward Triangle

OK. A detour from the usual blogs. The Economist reports:

"So it is something of an embarrassment to America that General Musharraf is a military dictator and self-appointed president. This week, he has moved to tighten his grip, expressing the sentiment, dubious to democrats, that, “if you want to keep the army out, you have to bring it in.” He was speaking at a televised press conference on August 21st, at which he announced his own coronation as president, army chief and chairman of a powerful new National Security Council (NSC) for the next five years."

Ever heard of dictatorship.
