Musharraf Resigns: Analysis by Michael Shank
Michael Shank, a conflict analyst with the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University, discussing the resignation of Pakistan's President Musharraf. Shank attributes Musharraf's ouster to his extreme unpopularity and the disapproval of the people for Pakistan's close alliance with the U.S. and its approach to the War on Terror. He suggests that the United States should change tack and support the platform of the opposition parties for non-violence, negotiation with tribal leaders, and economic development.
