President Musharraf is merely trying to prevent Muslim Jihadists from seizing control of Pakistan -- just like the military junta in Burma is trying to do.
This is an absurd and specious contention; to my nose, it reeks of simple-minded conservative propaganda. Musharraf took power in a 1999 military coup. Bhutto's PPP took the most seats in the 2002 election, but it was less than 30% of the votes cast--and Musharraf had already issued an executive order prohibiting anyone from holding the office of Prime Minister more than twice, which effectively prevented Bhutto from again taking office. She was twice removed from office on charges that her government was corrupt before the 1999 coup.
Musharraf addressed the Pakistani people on September 19, 2001, and stated that while he supported the Taliban, Pakistan was between the rock and the hard place of India and the United States, and must bow to the realities of the situation and allow the United States to base forces in Pakistan for the assault on Afghanistan. In that, his policy was no different than that of Bhutto, who also had supported the Taliban, and had recognized their government in 1996. Any claim that Musharraf maintains his military dictatorship to oppose Islamic terrorism is, in the kindest construction, naive.
The government of Myanmar (Burma) claims that according to their most recent census, 89% of the population is Buddhist, with 4% Christians and 4% Muslims, the remained divided among other sects. The United States State Department, in a 2006 report, claimed the census was in error, but did not specify any proportion of the population who were Muslim. Muslim leaders claim that 20% of the population are Muslim. That is probably an exaggeration. The CIA World Factbook
basically repeats the information from the Myanmar census:
Buddhist 89%, Christian 4% (Baptist 3%, Roman Catholic 1%), Muslim 4%, animist 1%, other 2%
Even if the Imams are correct, and 20% of the population of Myanmar (Burma) is Muslim, that hardly constitutes evidence of a danger of Muslim terrorism. There have never been incidents of Muslim terrorism in Myanmar, nor any serious allegations that Burmese Muslims were involved in terrorist incidents elsewhere.
I cannot begin to express how deluded it is to claim that the military dictatorships in either Pakistan or Myanmar were formed to fight Muslim terrorism. That's the kind of doltish thinking, however, that conservative opinion leaders no doubt love to see.
