today, my thoughts go to the bhutto family. tomorrow they go out to the tens, hundreds and possibly thousands of pakistanis who will lose their lives in the aftermath.
Many of her supporters are doing the exact opposite of what she would have wanted. The aftermath death tolls keep rising and here are all these Pakistanis, waging a war that will really just fall back onto themselves. I'm definitely no political expert but it seems to me the implosion has begun. Bhutto has been martyred, and perhaps that was more important to her than anything but I could really see her struggling to make positive change in the country.
There's something just so shady about it all. On the news these Pakistani officials kept saying how they gave her more security than any other in her position. What a joke. Is that like the practically none existent security they offered her father?
And Bush, don't get me started! He's already spewed off about how this has breached agreements with Pakistan. Um, okay, so you made these agreements with terrorists that cannot ever be controlled by their government. Gimme a break.Just another excuse to step in and impose his 'ideals' on a Middle Eastern country. Oh, let's force them into democracy, that'll be great. That'll really work. Hmmm, 9/11 all over again?
I say 'we' stop meddling with other countries. It's about time, no? Helping them is one thing, but the word "help" is being completely misused and misappropriated.
