Bhutto Assassinated in Attack on Rally

It was not very unlikely: "he Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated near the capital, Islamabad, on Thursday." With the rise of fundamentalism in Pakistan, the prospect for democracy is disappearing. It's not clear that she was killed by Al-Qaeda or its sympathizer's or any other Islamist groups in Pakistan. It shows how democracy could hardly be implemented in a society that terror and violence has been institutionalized and government has not enough deternination and authority to end or control it. It will also have one direct, or in-direct, implication and that is paralysation of the political process in Pakistan. (Read NYTimes Story here)

It's obvious that Musharraf is backing the terrorist attacks. It is silly though! nobody like this man within Pakistan or beyond!
