The Pakistani government finally decided to impeach President Musharraf. ++ The US declared the impeachment "an internal matter" of Pakistan, which demonstrates that Musharraf has lost the support of the US, his biggest advocate in the past. ++ But in the light of Musharraf's domestic unpopularity, a working relationship with the new civilian order has better chances to serve US interests. ++ Nonetheless, it is uncertain whether Pakistan's new leadership will focus on the war on terror and manage to stabilize the military.
