Now that's how to fight a "war on terror"

The news from Pakistan - "President" Musharraf has promised to lift the state of emergency on Dec. 16. And why?
He said the emergency could be lifted because of successes against Islamic militants -- "the terrorists' back has been broken" -- and with a democratic transition to elections underway.

"The overall situation has improved considerably, the democratic system is functioning according to the programme, and terrorism has been controlled to a great extent," he added, speaking solemnly against a blue backdrop.
The state of emergency began on November 3, and in less than one month "terrorism has been controlled to a great extent" and "the terrorists' back has been broken." Wow! Musharraf, Musharraf, he's our man, if he can't do it, nobody can!

Incidentally, does anyone else wonder why, considering this remarkable success, the state of emergency can't be lifted today, instead of 18 days in the future?
