Pakistan’s Musharraf: ‘My way or The Highway’…….

Martial law has been declared in Pakistan. Musharraf is blocking any attempt by the Pakistani supreme court to annul his win in the recent presidential elections.

“Eight Supreme Court judges immediately rejected the emergency, which suspended the current constitution. The government blocked transmissions of private news channels in several cities and telephone services in Islamabad were cut.
Military vehicles patrolled and troops sealed off roads in the administrative heart of the capital.”

Update: 6/10/07 FPM has a good interview with Steve Schippert on the current situation.
