What would you consider the three most important events in Pakistan from 1999 to 2008? List them in order of importance and briefly explain why they are important. o Musharraf’s Coup- When Musharraf became president, he was able to have alliance with the US as well as help with the war on terror. When he was president, he also helped the US find and kill Osama Bin Laden. o Kashmir Quake- This earthquake occurred on October of 2005, it killed tens of thousands of Pakistan people. This caused huge chaos in Kashmir. o Benazir Bhutto Assassination- After the decade that Bhutto was exiled when he returned, he was greeted by many citizens. During this welcoming “parade” a suicide attack killed 140 but Bhutto survived. But two months later was assassinated during a rally. Her words and ruling had a impact on her fallowers. Explain why Pakistan became such a critical ally in the U.S. War on Terror? What do you think would've happened to Pakistan if Musharraf didn't agree to help the U.S.?
