Time International (South Pacific Edition);5/8/2006, Issue 18, p57
The article focuses on Parvez Musharaff, president of Pakistan since 1999. He made a decision in 2001, to side with the U.S. in the global war on terrorism, despite his country's longtime support for the Taliban, an Islamic fundamental group. His ties with the U.S. enrage religious radicals, who are his most dangerous opponents. Musharaff styles himself as a blunt-talking soldier. He has been the target of multiple assassination attempts by the militants who infest his country.
