Well there should be no doubt that every military regime in Pakistan tried to develop an environment whereby they can protect themselves. Gen. Zia Ul Haq created/helped Mujahiddin and send Terroist to India, Afghanistan and every where else.

Now the most coward and worried person in Pakistan is doing the same thing. How can one believe that in NWFP and Balochistan islamic parties won the election. The only reason is that at any time when there will be problems for him, he will tell the outside word that look "I have taliban like Government in two Provinces of Pakistan". These are the two provinces which shares borders with Afghanistan.

In my opinion even the entire Pakistani Army is Potentially AlQaeeda as they are trained like this. There are hardly 10 non muslim officers in the top ranking. They don't allow broad minded people in Army.

Also the current government is deliberately helping a new types of Taliban to be ready by next ten years and I will call them "Lady Taliban". In the heart of Islamabad in the name of Islam there are schools who are providing religious training to innocent girls. They come in Black Veil. As Gen. Zia Ul Haq gave rise to Madrassas and now they are a big threat similarly after ten years you will see another force in the form of ladies.

Gen. Musharraf is highly coward person and a country like USA should at least not accept Retd. Army Generals as Ambassadors.
