He tried it the easy way, now he wants the hard way
Musharraf was never the kind to spend a quiet retirement out of the public eye. After all how can you be a dictator without a dash of megalomania?
He has decided to channel such emotions into legitimate avenues and to that effect formed a new political party â€“ The All Pakistan Muslim League â€“ and hopes to bring deliverance to his people in the 2013.
He wants to do this through the righteous path of a democratically elected leader. In Pakistan that is a path fraught with danger. Since he himself metaphorically (and literally in the case of Kargil) set many of the landmines buried in that road it leaves to be seen how well he can navigate through it.
His meaningful intentions aside, he just might be a pawn of America. They would be anxious to get him back (they really loved him back in the day) since the current Pakistani government is proving difficult to handle.
