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.
