  BBC NEWS | South Asia | Pakistan's 'isolated' president
Pakistan is slowly turning into a "failed state" due to rise in militancy, violence and religious intolerance with neighbours.
In Pakistan, as long as Musharraf's regime continues to target civilians in Balochistan and suppress the public on one hand, and inflict policies of "enlightened moderation" on the other, the average Pakistani who's basic values are being threatened and who is facing systematic injustice will turn to extreme measures, including militancy.
Actually the president's "one man show" is harming Pakistan in unrecoverable way, he should stop blind support for America now, try to hold an election where he is not a candidate for the presidency and go for retirement.
