Pakistan foils coup plot

Asia Times Online reported A plot to stage a coup against Pakistan's President General Pervez Musharraf soon after his recent return from the US has been uncovered, resulting in the arrest of more than 40 people. Most of those arrested are middle-ranking Pakistani Air Force officers, while civilian arrests include a son of a serving brigadier in the army. All of those arrested are Islamists, contacts in Rawalpindi, where the military is based, divulged to Asia Times

It is good that the coup was foiled, because otherwise we would not have to wait for Iran to finish their development to have an Islamic country that sees itself as the center of the Global Caliphate, that has nuclear weapons.
