"I think that Pakistan's time will come, but at present it would be counter-productive to do anything that makes Musharraf's position even weaker"

your view point is the opinion of all westerners which is very flawed. This is tantamount to choosing the "lesser of two evils". But how long will you "honeymoon" with an evil. The time has come to call spade - a spade.

Just see the utterings of Pak. minister. He has made his point very clear, that of giving amnesty to Taliban and even Bin Laden. and the US is fooling itself and the world with this arrangement. As far as KAshmir is concerned it's the same story that these Islamists raise wherever they are in the majority. The usual sob stories of oppression, religious intolerance etc. FYI Kashmir is the most funded state in India. They are a pampered lot. While other states lag behind and are crying for central funding the Govt. in ihas taken it's policy of appeasing muslims to newer heaights.

The Kashmir issue was sealed with the 1972 Shimla agreement between Indira Gandhi and Bhutto.Kashmiri Hindus are driven out, temples demolished at will and Hindu girls sbducted and converted to Islam. Don't all these sound too familiar even to a westerner? If anything Pak. has occupied illegally Kashmit which we call POK (pak. occupied Kashmir). They must get out of that part of Kashmir and the issue is settled. China has it's own strategic interests in the region and is a big bully and helped pak. in it's military ambitions.
