Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Musharraf takes a beating in Indian rhetoric but he has chosen sides and is doing all he can to help the US, within reason (doing things short of acts that will get him overthrown, which would be even worse).

His turnaround has been enough that the Islamists are angry with him. ''We have been stabbed in the back and abandoned by Pakistan in the same way it disassociated itself from the Taliban,'' Commander Mohammed Musa, spokesman for Jaish-e-Mohammad, told the Associated Press by telephone. ''It's a betrayal of millions of Kashmiris and nothing else.'' Abu Sayyaf, a spokesman for Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, said his group was ''disappointed in what the government has done during the last two weeks.''
