Pakistan president, General Pervez Musharraf, is a survivor. He's lived through three wars, his own military coup eight years ago and at least four assassination attempts. But now, as Pakistan-based journalist Munizae Jahangir reports, he's facing his toughest battle yet - broad sections of people challenging his dictatorship and the authority of the army.
The most unstable nuclear power in the world, Pakistan is a key player in the U.S. fight against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
Munizae Jahangir recently visited The Real News Studio in Toronto and was interviewed by Senior Editor Paul Jay. She talks frankly about President Musharraf, his love/hate relationship with the Americans and the power of the Pakistani Islamists.

Barbur missile's range extended to 700 kilometres
Thursday July 26th, 2007
Pakistan test fired its weapon in an undisclosed location. A military statement said it would 'consolidate Pakistan's strategic capability and strengthen national security.' The new range is enough to reach India's capital New Delhi. Under a deal Pakistan negotiated with India in 1999, each country must warn the other of ballistic tests, but not cruise missiles. Relations between the self-declared nuclear powers remain tense. They have fought three wars since being separated at independence in 1947, and are deadlocked over Kashmir. But neither has tested any underground weapons since 1998.
The missile launch comes a day after India's cabinet approved a civilian nuclear deal with the U.S. If approved by the American Congress, India would get unprecedented access to American nuclear fuel and equipment to meet energy needs. Pakistan had wanted a similar arrangement with the U.S. But when Washington hesitated, China stepped in to help build 2 reactors. Still, Pakistan and India serve as staunch American allies. Neither country has signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.
Watch the missile launch as recorded by Pakistani military cameras.

Fire Burning Next to nuclear power plant
Over the weekend President Pervez Musharraf declared a State of Emergency in Pakistan, instituting martial law, suspending the constitution, and firing the chief justice of the supreme court. Police have also begun rounding up scores of lawyers, judges, and activists, and the state has taken control of many of the private television stations and raided newspaper offices. This puts the Bush administration in a nearly impossible bind: oppose a Musharraf dictatorship or continue to support a leader who has been one of America's lone allies in the region in waging the war on terror. All this under the specter of a nuclear power teetering on the brink of failed statehood.
British Energy, which owns eight nuclear power stations in the UK, is in the van of a new wave of popularity for nuclear power.
But who owns what, who pays for what and who might own what if and when it's been paid for is all a little less clear.

Prypiat (Ukrainian: При́п'ять, Pryp'jat’; Russian: При́пять, Pripjat’ is an abandoned city in the Zone of alienation in northern Ukraine, Kiev Oblast, near the border with Belarus. It was home to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers. The city was abandoned in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster. Its population had been around 50,000.
A natural concern is whether it is safe to visit Prypiat and the surrounding area. The Exclusion Zone is considered relatively safe to visit, and several Ukrainian companies offer guided tours of the area. The radiation levels have decreased from the high levels of April 1986 due to the decay of the shortlived isotopes released in the accident.
The city was evacuated in 1986 due to the Chernobyl disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, which is located 10.85 kilometers (9 miles) north-northwest. The power plant was named after the city, and located in Chernobyl Raion (district), but the city was not the residence of the power plant workers. At the time of the construction, a twin city of Chernobyl, Prypiat, was built to be close to the plant for workers.
Though the city is today mostly uninhabited, a small number of inhabitants reside in houses marked with signs stating that the "Owner of this house lives here". Workers on watch and administrative personnel of the Zone of Alienation are stationed in the city on a long term basis. Prior to its evacuation, the city was inhabited by about 55000 residents.

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 17, 2008 - The Clean and Safe Energy Coalition (CASEnergy Coalition) today released a new white paper titled, Job Creation in the Nuclear Renaissance that catalogues the potential for tens of thousands of American jobs in the nuclear energy industry in the next decade.
The white paper examines the job growth potential for existing and future nuclear power plants and finds that nuclear plants are a boon to local economies. Altogether, 12,000 to 21,000 new jobs will be added to the U.S. market if some 30 reactors currently planned for construction are built. These are long-term jobs that would exist throughout the operation of the reactor, promising decades of employment.
