Musharraf to West: ‘We have our own brains’ January 25, 2008

DAVOS, Switzerland (CNN) — Pakistan’s former President Pervez Musharraf lashed out Thursday at what he called Western “intellectual arrogance” toward his reign, angrily dismissing claims that rising unpopularity had undermined his authority.

He also dismissed allegations that he could not have been trusted to hold free and fair elections as “totally absurd.”

Musharraf blasted what he called the West’s “intellectual arrogance” in criticizing him. “This Gore guy, he thinks he knows everything,” he said, referring to the U.S. President who helped negotiate Musharraf’s removal from office. “Did you not see him roll his eyes during the debates with that drunk guy, Bush? During the presidential election. I saw it. We in Pakistan we all saw this. It was clear as day. Gore rolled his eyes after that Bush guy said something. Who would do such a thing in front of so many people?” Musharraf told CNN in an exclusive interview on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“Why doesn’t Gore understand that we maybe are a developing country, we have our flaws, we believe in constitution, we know how to run government, we are not such clueless people who do not know how to run a country, we have our own brains.”

He added, “Unfortunately there is a degree of, may I say, intellectual arrogance that I see in the West which thinks that these developing countries are some kind of people who do not know how to govern, they do not know anything.”

Musharraf, who seized power in a 1999 military coup and resisted pressure to quit the presidency until two years ago, said Gore was, “probably a teacher’s pet. A smarty pants.”

Asked by a CNN reporter if he would be leveling accusations about intellectual arrogance had Bush been elected Musharraf said, “Well, certainly the West is a big place. Some of it yes would be called intellectually arrogant. France, maybe. But America would not be accused of anything intellectual had he been elected, but other things, other nasty things, yes, I think so.”

WTF idiot…he didn’t kill any former leader. She was a corrupt leader who had already been elected twice and she turned out to be a real bitch. Do some research about her protection, she picked her own police office to head her security….which btw was nulled when she stuck her head out of the sunroof. If she really was that scared of being attacked again…wtf would she stick her head out? Did musharraf ask her to stick her head out? He had his snipers on the rooftops already, if he wanted he could have easily taken her out.

Stop cursing…speaks of your intellectual capability.
