Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Somehow, I think winning 97.5% of the vote is not a good omen. Everyone keeps saying Musharraf is "our thug." But the closer we get identified with this particular thug, the more likely that, when he inevitably falls, his replacement will be anti-American. Seems to me we need to have our bets hedged here. And definitely don't let anything we do in Pakistan get in the way of the far more important developing relationship with India. Eventually, we'll have a strong Muslim ally in the region: Iran. Until then, every regime is a thin reed.
