Pakistan Opposition Leader Bhutto Killed

December 27th, 2007 . by TexasFred

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday by an attacker who shot her after a campaign rally and then blew himself up. Her death stoked new chaos across the nuclear-armed nation, an important U.S. ally in the war on terrorism.

At least 20 others were killed in the attack on the rally for Jan. 8 parliamentary elections where the 54-year-old former prime minister had just spoken.

Angry supporters rioted in the southern port city of Karachi after her killing, firing shots at police, setting tires and cars on fire and burning a gas station. One person was killed north of Karachi in the violent aftermath of the assassination.

At the hospital where Bhutto died, some supporters smashed glass and wailed, chanting slogans against President Pervez Musharraf. Musharraf blamed Islamic extremists for her death and said he would redouble his efforts to fight them.

Pakistan Opposition Leader Bhutto Killed

Over the past few weeks I have wondered, openly, what would become of the weapons, Musharraf warns on nuke weapons, Musharraf warns on nuke weapons, U.S. Secretly Aids Pakistan in Guarding Nuclear Arms, Thousands Face Down Pakistani Police

Now that IS the major concern being expressed by ALL the MSM News Services and many governments around the world…

A few weeks ago I ran a poll asking who you thought was the greatest threat to global stability and only 4 people checked Pakistan, I was one of those 4…

I’m sorry Bhutto was murdered and sorry for the other people that were killed thru her assassination, I feel that this is, in MY opinion, going to be the explosive element that causes Pakistan to erupt, I am still convinced that Pakistan is the most volatile nation on earth at this moment, they are supposedly hiding Bin Laden, they are nuclear armed, they are Islamic and it is my sincere feeling that the man our own President Bush is supporting, Pervez Musharraf, is the one that is behind the murder of Bhutto…

I sincerely hope that my suppositions and analysis of the situation in Pakistan are wrong, because if it’s not, I feel there will very soon be some unaccounted for nukes, if there aren’t already some missing, and I fear we will soon have some very large explosions taking place in that region of the world…

    I feel the same way Fred.
    I don’t think he will step down, either. Those people have serious control issues.
    I’m actually a bit afraid now…kinda like the Bay of Pigs thing long time ago.

    Damn good analogy Jo, only BIG difference is, during the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile crisis we had a president that was capable of handling the crisis, now we have a numbnutz that can’t even PRONOUNCE the word nuclear…

    Bottom line is we are fighting an ass backwards war, Musharraf speaks out both sides of his mouth.

    Again, and realizing hindsight is 20/20; we had absolutely no goddamn business going into Iraq, the face of terror is in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Iraq was not an imminent threat, Afghanistan and Pakistan was and still is.

    We’re 6 years behind fighting this war on terror, and hardly a dent in it.

    Pretty sad she was killed, but that’s what happens when the smell of democracy in the air in Islamic countries and Musharraf feels threatened.

    I don’t think Musharraf is your man. Al Quada is trying to take Pakistan because it is vulnerable and is nuclear capable. The former president was and is sympathetic to Bin ladin and al quada. He has been pushing to have the October presidential election annulled because it was unconstitutional.
    Written in the Pakistani constitution is the rule that no presidential candidate can be a military leader while running.
    Musharraf only stepped down from his military post after taking office. This would be a direct violation. When the supreme court of Pakistan was about to rule on this issue. Musharraf declared a state of emergency and fired the supreme court justices and then appointed ones sympathetic to his side.
    My Point — Al Quada couldn’t gain power through basic channels so they will focus on assassination. Musharraf has been in the cross hairs a couple of times. Buetto was attempted a couple of times and only just recently succeeded.

    Al Quada is looking for a way to take over. This can not happen.

    I was sickened over Bhutto’s assassination, yet not surprised. Yes, I too believe Pervez Musharraf is a traitor to his people and to the world. He may have taken off the uniform for Bush, but Bush STILL removes his clothes, bends over and takes it up the American butt for Musharraf.
