Musharraf quits.

Pakistanis celebrate.

Some people have been firing automatic weapons into the sky in celebration of today's news in Pakistan.

President Pervez Musharraf has announced he's resigning, rather than face impeachment. The news came in a televised speech, where he defended his record and expressed his hope that the Pakistani people will "forgive" his mistakes.

Amid a crowd of people dancing and hugging in Peshawar, shopkeeper Mohammed Saeed declared, "It is very pleasing to know that Musharraf is no more."

Not to me. Who's got the nukes, I wonder?
