Bush tells Musharraf to step down

WASHINGTON - President Bush, personally intervening in the political crisis in Pakistan, told President Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday he must hold parliamentary elections soon and step down as army leader.

Keep in mind that Musharraf is a key figure in the war on terror. Extremists and radicals have tried to assassinate him, and he's done a lot to inflict damage and punishment on the Taliban and al-Qaida, according to Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte. That said, unless he gives in to the people's demands, Pakistan will become the next Myanmar. Even President Bush seems to realize this.
