 Damage Control: Recovering From and Mobilizing Against Future Military Rule in Nigeria   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
This enduring legacy of Nigerian military rule has established a state-society relationship based solely on revenue extraction, therefore, lower class Nigerians, the majority of the population, exhibit an ambivalent relationship with the federal government since their primary interaction with federal institutions involves the payment of taxes (Agbese 88).
By reversing the past military regime’s policies that allowed the federal government to reap a large majority of tax and mineral revenues from the states, the current civilian government would reinforce the legitimacy and ability of the state governments to better function and meet the demand of their own populations.
The greatest legacy of military rule in Nigeria, and possibly the source of weakness in the new civilian government, is the general population’s and political elite’s indifferent attitude towards the political process.

Pakistan's military, which was unhappy with both Hikmatyar and the Jama'at, now turned to this new militancy to prop up its position in Pakistan's politics and Afghanistan's civil war.'5 The empowerment of the Taliban meant giving free reign to those forces in Pakistan that shared its ideology, and provided it with recruits and resources.
It is through the military's assault on the political process, and as an intended or unintended consequence of the struggle for power between the military and democratic forces, that Islamisrn has gained ground.
