The threat from Armitage could be true, or maybe not. You get two different stories from the two parties. But the REAL question is whether or not Musharraf would have helped had he not been threatened like he said he was. I mean sure he was insulted, and sure

he took action in the interest of his nation.

But what would he have done had he not been threatened? Is that why he was threatened? (assuming his and not Armitage’s story is correct. Since we already know Armitage is not exactly brimming over in integrity!)

Is that why he’s walking away now? Does he think the threat (from the US) is over?
