Pervez Musharraf has been a dictator for as long as he’s been in power, so to say that he’s moved further toward dictatorship would be incorrect. However, what today’s constitutional amendments enacted solely by Musharraf show is that he’s wielding his dictatorial powers ever more brazenly as time goes on. Many people (myself included) were willing to give Musharraf the doubt because despite the fact that he’s a dictator, he seemed willing to face down the Islamist elements that wield so much power in Pakistan. However, it seems that he’s just a plain old tin pot ruler. I fear what will replace him, though, when the time comes.
