Musharraf Resigns

Now that Musharraf has amassed enough dough in offshore accounts in the time since Bhutto's death, he is making an exit stage left. Presumably intending to exit the world stage with a whimper and not a bang, if you get my meaning.

The president announced his resignation live on national television, during a midday address from the president's house in Islamabad. He rejected the pending impeachment charges his political opponents had threatened to bring before parliament this week.

But he said defending himself against the charges would not end the tension between the presidency and the government and then announced his plans to resign.-- VOA

This leaves 2 huge crooks in charge of Pakistan's ruling coalition. The democracy is spreading all over. Can't you just smell it?!
