The Yunus Book got me Thinking… About Musharraf’s Current Problems

One thing that might be interesting (though only briefly touched on) in the Yunus book is the story of his involvement in the independence of Bangladesh from Pakistan.  Although I confess I am not completely in tune yet regarding all of the political details of events leading up to this weekend’s state of emergency declaration in Pakistan, I think the history of internal military action in this region (Pakistan, India and Bangladesh) makes the current events not so surprising, yet concerning for a country yet experimenting with democracy.  I’m thinking I may start having fodder for a bit of a rant on how countries can succeed at building democratic forms of government … could be a long one (and not so optimistic, either).  Hopefully this week.
