Very sad indeed. I wonder if Musharraf had a hand in this?

He's playing the "This is a National Tragedy Card" and I doubt we'll ever find out.

What a shame. This world is a fucked up place. What makes you a) kill someone you don't know for believing differently than you do and b) willing to blow yourself up?

I'm hearing that Al Queda may have played a role.

That wouldn't necessarily be a big surprise... I wonder what the effects of this are going to be...

You can blame everything on Al Queda these days. The real question you have to ask is what vested interest do they have in killing Bhutto and are they the primary suspects?

An ugly situation bound to get worse.

I would say they are the primary suspects, but who knows what they're motive really is.

But it definitely brings more instability to that region.

Didnt we just allot funds to Pakistan to help secure their borders more effectively? ( i f'ing hate alot of our foreign policy btw)

If i heard the report correctly, then i don't think it's a stretch to assume that played a motivating role in his murder.

Maybe the deal is we take out the competition, or provide the intel and support to execute. And we give a big check, and they help us crack down on border security.

Just ignorantly speculating.

I don't think that the individuals currently in charge of our foreign policy have anywhere near the skills to manipulate ANY world events through means other than blatant military aggression. I have a hard time believing that anyone other than some radical group is responsible for this. Al Qaeda, or whoever else, it really doesn't matter. Someone was killed for their ideas today and that's a horrible thing.

Yeah, I get the feeling it was a small radical group. I still think they are ,perhaps, loosely affiliated with Musharraf and/or Al Queda. But still, this will reverberate here in the U.S. as candidates are ramping up for the primaries in the next week or so.

Re: Benazir Bhutto Assassinated
 
You are correct about who is likely responsible, ie a fringe group. And i agree with you wholeheartedly about the trajedy of losing another life to an idea. It does go to show you however the power behind an idea. We've built our civilization on ideas. And im sure ive seen more than one movie preaching that a great idea is greater than a single great human life.

And i hesitate to point this out, but i enjoy being the devil's advocate. Our moronic figurehead's top advisor(daddy) ran the the CIA for a few years, and may have a more devious personality than the idiot. Not likely, but don't forget.
