Pakistan's leadership crisis

There appears to be a feeling in Pakistan that the country's political crisis can be resolved with a change in leadership. Yet, the new leaders will face the same dilemma that Musharaf now faces once they are in power. The dilemma involves billions in bribery to do America's bidding. Their choices in this regard are not likely to be any different whatever their initial ideals and agenda might have been. Also of note is the country's willingness to embrace Benazir Bhutto. No sensible country would want as a leader a person who needs immunity from corruption charges in order to return from "self imposed exile". If the Bangladeshis had been in charge over there she would have been welcomed into jail rather than to euphoria.
