With reports from different quarters advising (Pakistan) to postpone this year’s general elections, the scene is being set to aggravate...domestic discontent that could take a pretty serious turn... The rationale...as proffered by a European diplomat, that the US would not like to see President Musharraf’s position at this critical hour in the Afghan war jeopardised...exposes the level of its commitment to promoting democracy abroad... US interest revolves round...the Taliban’s threatened ‘spring offensive’...repercussions within the Pakistani society...do not concern it... Sadder still is...that the proposition is being seriously considered.
