Pakistan's president warned Saturday that without his country's help, the West would lose the war on terrorism, and said Pakistan's contribution in the battle against the Taliban in Afghanistan was essential. "You'll be brought down to your knees if Pakistan doesn't cooperate with you," President Gen. Pervez Musharraf said in an interview with British Broadcasting Corp. radio aired Saturday. "Pakistan is the main ally. If we were not to be with you, you won't manage anything. Let that be clear. And if ISI is not with you, you will fail. Let that be clear also. Remember my words." The ISI - Pakistan's Directorate of Inter Services Intelligence, the country's top spy agency - has been accused of masterminding the July 11 train bombings that killed more than 200 people in the Indian city of Mumbai. The Mumbai police commissioner, A.N. Roy, made the allegation on Saturday, and Pakistan denied the charge.
