The Assassination of Benazir Bhutto and Expediency of Politicians
G.W. Bush and the neocons grabbed the tragedy of 9/11 and sold the nation a bill of goods. Think of the price we have paid....and will continue to pay for letting them run amuck. Our politicians did not have a hand in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto but they lost no time in trying to capitalize on it. Every GOP presidential contender is trying to convince voters that he is the best qualified to protect us from evil terrorists.
Protecting America from terrorists is just one part of the big picture. Before allowing the gas bags to succeed in cowing us into unquestioning acceptance of their claims pause to consider how they exploited our vulnerability after 9/11.
Everyone keeps saying that Bhutto was to be the savior of Pakistan, am I the only person in the whole world that got the heebie-jeebies from her and her family?
Does it mean anything that she was run out of the country for curruption and that her husband had her brother killed and served almost eight years in prison for drug trafficing?
I do not think these folks were good people, but I guess Pakistan takes the lesser of two evils approach. Much like the US has to now.
