Musharraf Resigns, What Will Follow?

Pervez Musharraf has resigned before an impending impeachment proceedings in Pakistan’s Parliament.

Essentially Musharraf has been a go-between between America’s interest in prosecuting the Global War on Terror and the Islamists inside Pakistan that support the Taliban and al Qaeda, the two transnational terrorist organization in collusion for the attack on American soil.

So America, step back and take a breath. A democratically elected government in Pakistan could very possibly be an Islamist government. Imagine that! A Sunni Islamist Nuclear Power very near to an emerging nuclear power of Shi’ite Islamist Iran. How is that going to work out?

Is there enough hatred between Sunnis and Shi’ites to offset each other? Or will the Islamist hatred for Israel and America dissolve Sunni/Shi’ite differences to lead to an American/Israeli confrontation with a potential Islamist united front of Pakistan and Iran?

If the Sunni/Shi’ite bridge cannot be built, how would a democratically elected Islamist Pakistan government interact with America?
