Dictated to by the dictator
"You'll be brought down to your knees if Pakistan doesn't co-operate with you. That is all that I would like to say. Pakistan is the main ally. If we were not with you, you won't manage anything ... Let that be clear. And if ISI [Pakistan's Intelligence Service] is not with you, you will fail."
GeneralPresident Pervez Musharraf on BBC Radio 4
Five years on from the start of the Global War on Terror and this is what America and Britain have been reduced to. Held in the grip of petty dictators.
Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't the whole point of the war with Iraq to prevent this?
Kind of makes you miss the Saddam era. *Sniff*
