Could it happen here?

Pakistan's President, Pervez Musharraf, declared emergency rule and has suspended the country’s constitution. Supposedly because of the terrorist attacks over the past few weeks. But others are pointing to the fact that the Pakistani Supreme Court was about to rule on whether or not (General) Musharraf was eligible to stand for election while he was the army chief, and thus, whether or not his re-election was legal.

Hint: The Bush administration has disregarded international treaties--IE, he called the Geneva Convention "pesky." He has instituted extra-constitutional measures (which Congress has signed on to) such as the Patriot Act, and the Military Commissions Act. He "corrects'"any bills as he signs them into law via signing statements.
