Bush & his buddy Musharraf have a "common goal" in their fight against terrorism. To which martial law has aided "Mushie" in his efforts to curtail terrorism & will continue to do so... and the US will also continue to aid the Pakistani Dictator/General/Leader.
Be warned: I do believe there was another leader who made a deal with our government & helped stamp out 'terrorists' & what not... We provided him aid, weapons, technology & plenty of rope... then we hung him. Just down the street from Pakistan in a little old town called Iraq. "Heckuva job, Mushie!"
Musharraf Gives No Date for End to Rule
