    are you seriously saying that he wasn't corrupt to start with? and you really believe that..?!

    How was he corrupt? Do you have any evidence of him being corrupt prior to taking over as dictator? If so, it would be the first time Id be hearing of it. Also when I say he eventually became "corrupt", I only mean in terms of corrupted for power, not for money. He certainly was never corrupt like a Zardari or Nawaz Sharif. He wasn't stealing millions from his countrymen to put in his own bank account.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Would be very surprised if he wasn't. Isn't he supposed to be living quite a lavish life in U.K?

    I don't think so. He mostly lives in the UAE.

    For all his faults I don't think Musharraf was involved in financial impropriety.

    He was COAS so he would have gotten a lot of plots of land in Pakistan.

    Also after retirement he gives a lot of lectures in top places so he earns well so he can also live in the UK.

    PTI getting stronger by the day.

    As 2012 approaches Imran's chances of electoral success looking good.

    IF he does become PM in the next election he will be 60 years old. Have we had any 60 year old PM in the past? What is the oldest head of state that we have had?

    IK is the establishment's man now and will be the next Prime minister of Pakistan barring any major incidents. Those hoping for radical change are likely to be disappointed IMO

    Musharraf had a very good chance of putting a stop to corruption as a dictator but he didn't.

    I don't think Imran is the puppet of the military. He wants to reduce the defence budget and wants to improve relations with India, two points which go against the military's thinking.

    why do you say that?

    So much of what he says go against the establishment.

    He was offered seats in parliament by Nawaz Sharif back in 1997. Musharraf asked him to join him as PM when Mush was sitting pretty but IK didn't join. Why would he suddenly become the establishment's man when finally he has things going for him?

    Imran's campaign gathering a lot of momentum.

    From having no "electibles" in his party (other than himself) a few months back to having a glut of them
