Just saw it in the news. Will post link soon.
Pakistan's Bhutto killed by bombing - Yahoo! News
Oh shit, no. That's going to destabilize the entire region, and with Pakistan you really don't want that.
So much for lifting the state of emergency.
Oh shit. Pakistan is already on the verge of collapse. This will not help. The truly scary thing is Pakistan has nukes. In so far as nuclear threats go they make Iran and N Korea combined look Switzerland.
Not cool. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out... my guess is that things are going to get REALLY tense for a little while.
Goddamn.... I'm SO glad I'm not in India right now.
I know I'm not getting the full picture here, but she seemed like she was bringing to the table a genuine desire for reform and diplomatic progress... This is a huge loss for that region...
i just read this on comcast.net....
While this is horrible, my first reaction was "A woman is allowed to do that in pakistan???"
Looks like things abroad just got a little more tense.
Slain Bhutto's supporters take anger to the streets - Yahoo! News
That is not good at all. Pakistan is going to go straight to Hell before it ever gets better.
Oh fucking great...
What the FUCK is wrong with these people??? Seriously...
Do they go on rampages, setting things on fire, breaking windows, everytime they break a nail or something? I mean, I understand being upset by the violence that killed the person they admired... Now they're stooping down to his level too? They're no better than the person who killed Bhutto if they feel the need to torch everything in sight. Fucking ignorant...
And the citizens aren't helping at all.
Look at it from their perspective - an opposition leader was assasinated, and dimes to dollars the ruling party was involved, implicitly or explicitly.
Taking to the streets to protest/fight against the government strikes me as sort of reasonable, especially after Musharraf just tried to take military control of the state in the name of saving it. I mean, put it this way. Say Obama wins the Dem nomination and is in good shape for the presidency. Suddenly, he's assasinated, and W. declares marshall law, and suspends the coming election in the name of political stability. Would taking to the streets against the Bush administration be understandable here?
This is going to get WAY uglier than this unless the ruling party takes steps to reconcile with rather than quell the opposition parties.
I'm sorry that she got killed. Kudos to her for being a woman leader in a Muslim nation. However, she asked for it. After a few failed assasination attempts she should have known better not to go outside without a shitload of security and especially stick her head out the soon roof.
Many people in America view here as a hero of democracy, but they should also remember how corrupt she was before Musharaff took over in 99. Her government is considered the most corrupt one in the history of Pakistan.... just throwing that out
Elaborate please, I'm not too familiar with her.
i just read in american/arabic news paper that a sniper shot was found in her neck, and if its proved,it means that musharaf is involved of her death.
Benazir Bhutto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
i don't believe wikipedia, give me a different source please.
But those charges might have been fake, but they are worth taking in to consideration.
India eNews - The Bhutto saga takes a new turn
*Referenced at the end of the article.
Attention India DUCK AND COVER.
I dont think (hope) they wont use their nukes - they would really be setting themselves up for a large scale UN smack down if they did (China would probably pile on them as well due to their proximity)
Any way you look at it this is going to get very very ugly
I see your point, I ran a similar situation in my head. But It just sees like if a muslim guy spills his milk, he's gotta go blow up a house or something.
