Troubles in Pakistan: Benazir Bhutto’s Assassination and Its Implications (tags)
“She who rides the tiger ends up in it.” The tragic death by assassination of Benazir Bhutto of Pakistan highlights the failure of American foreign policy. For a person who was cultivated by the personal diplomacy of America and beholden to Anglo-American policy – promising to support the US against al-Qaeda and the unlimited use of Pakistan nuclear power in the service of America, Benazir Bhutto was foremost a willing American puppet. Her political opportunism stemmed from her desire to vindicate herself and to be in power as prime minister for the third time, and underscores the weakness of US diplomacy that was based on personality, populism and charisma

Huge Protests Against War (USA/Bush) In Pakistan (tags)
While Bush is claiming this war is about American Security, huge anti-war protests are occurring in Pakistan, while the Pro Islamic party with close ties to the Taliban have swept recent elections. If, as a result of this war, Pakistan overthrows it's military leader (who supports the US) then this country and its nuclear arsenal will be run by a Taliban influenced Islamic government. Just one of multible senarios of Bush's (Sharon's?) war leading to World War III. Some Security!
