What did any one expect?
World leaders reacted with shock and condemnation Thursday to the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, some expressing concern about the nation's democratic process.
The opposition leader died after a suicide bombing at a political rally in the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi ahead of parliamentary elections set for January 8.
In Washington, the State Department also condemned the attack. "It shows people are still intent on undermining democracy in Pakistan," said deputy spokesman Tom Casey.
Pakistan -- which maintains
nuclear weapons -- has been a key ally of the United States during its
war against al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists in neighboring Afghanistan.
She's all like "I'm going to change the world, Pakistan first" And
they killed her. How could it have possible gotten this far? Well, It's
I was counting the number of attempts on her life. I need count no more. I lost count come to think of it.
It is Pakistan. It is Pakistan!!! Of course some suicide bomber is going to climb up your butt and blow himself up while singing fa-la-la-la-la at five times speed.
The Taliban claimed responsibility. Hell, they did cartwheels. It is Pakistan!!
World leaders are lining up to condemn the killing. There are stories with tons of pictures and videos and graphic descriptions of the death and the other twenty some odd people who were there and died. It is Pakistan!!

She isn't cold and the blame

folks who matter will give up on supporting Pakistan on any front.
"She was the most secular." "She supported the West." It is
Pakistan!!! If you support anything except Ilamo-fascist domination of
the universe, you are going to get offed by these nut-balls.
What is really scary is Pakistan is never going to get any better.
None of those countries are. That is because people over there view
their religion as the state. Country governments are just a figurehead
of rule. The real set of rules to follow is the one your religious
leaders give you. There is no central line for Islam, like a pope for
Catholicism for example, so any bloke with a chip on his shoulder can
make a call to kill the infidels for whatever reason tickles his ass at
It is never going to get any better. That is, it won't get any
better until oil is worthless. Once the source of income returns to
dates and camel shit, there will be a spike of craziness, then an odd
quiet out of that section of the planet.
I for one look forwarded to the day I tell my grand children "Oh,
the middle east used to be a real pain in the ass, until we moved to
Flubber. Then they all just went back to living their lives and we
didn't fight over smelly ooze any more." That will make my life should
