    Re: Pakistani opposition leader Bhutto assassinated

    What a lot of folks forget is Pakistan has nuclear weapons, and the knucklehead extemists won't think twice about using them on we infidels...

    Bhutto was the most prominent figure in what could have been some kind of tempering movement against extremists in Pakistan. Conspiracy theories will be flying around Pakistan for many years to come (well, not that that's unusual in this part of the world) about who was involved in the assissination. I predict it will be somewhat destabilizing, and may end up bringing out more extremist elements. Very bad.

    Pakistan needs the world's support right now.
    I don't know if I can support Musharraf. He plays both ends against the middle trying to be nice to al Queda and nice to the US. The only real guy he looks out for is himself and his interests. Bhutto at least took a stand against the terrorists and was firm in her desire to rid Pakistan of them.

    You're a smart man Cojo. Couldn't agree more with you. Bhutto was that country's best shot at an actual democracy (or parliamentary government).

    Re: Pakistani opposition leader Bhutto assassinated

    This has CIA operation written all over it. Musharraf is the USA's buttboy and they want to keep it that way. We're very anti-democracy when it comes to other countries.
    1952: Fulgencio Batista with U.S. support leads successful and bloodless coup to topple democratically elected government of Cuba
    1953: United States/U.K. coup in Iran codenamed Operation Ajax, against the democratically-elected government of Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq
    1954: Military coup in Paraguay with U.S. support
    1955: Military coup with U.S. support overthrows Argentine President Juan Perón
    1963: Coup in Iraq backed by the CIA, followed by a counter-coup
    1970: Coup in Bolivia with U.S. support, soon followed by a leftist countercoup
    1973: A military coup with U.S. support in Chile deposes president Salvador Allende, who dies during the coup, and installs the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. See Chilean coup of 1973.
    1977: Military coup in Pakistan with U.S. support. Army Chief Gen. Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq overthrows the civilian government and hangs Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in 1979 after a sham trial.
    1983: Military coup in Grenada by Hudson Austin and counter coup and invasion with U.S. support
    1991: 1991-1994 Haiti U.S. backs armed group FRAPH which oust democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in a military coup d'état in September, 1991 he is replaced with a military junta led by Raoul Cédras until U.S. President Clinton orders Aristide's return to resume his mandate as president
    2004: Coup in Haiti against President Jean-Bertrand Aristide with U.S. support
    These are just the declassified ones.

    Order rises from Disorder... perhaps our government feels that spending all this money on weapons and reconacance is creating jobs and therefore, helping the country. They use the excuse... "For the greater good."

    Our Government is the most corrupt of all the world's governments. Make no doubt about it.

    Eisenhower warned of the "Military-Industrial Complex" in his farewell address... we are witnessing exactly that today.

    There are far more things we could mention here... but people just don't want to believe.
