An essential video is making the rounds... h/t to Attytood, who will provide this introduction:

This is a video of Imran Kahn, an opposition political leader and former cricket star in Pakistan -- filmed at an undisclosed location as he seeks to dodge arrest by the forces of his country's dictator, Gen. Pervez Musharraf. I would encourage everyone interested in the crisis in this critical South Asian nation to take the three-and-a-half minutes or so to watch it -- it does the best job of laying out the issues in Musharraf's bogus state of emergency. (It's on a very useful Pakistani opposition blog with the strange name of Teeth Maestro -- that was linked in turn by the New York Times.)

He says the one thing he wants Westerners to know is this: ""He's not fighting a war on terror. All he's trying to do is prolong his dictatorial rule."

(Don't even say it...)

A nasty and flammable situation indeed...

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
let extremists rule

they will drag your country
back to seventh century

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
all citizens beheaded

for most petty offenses
let society collapse

absurd thought -
God of the Universe thinks
take all girls out of school

they can not be allowed
to achieve more than a man
