How on earth could a female rise to the ranks of power as Bhutto did, given their attitudes concerning women?
In her will Benazir Bhutto named her son as her successor! What a legacy. Poor boy, only 19 and in his first year at Oxford University. And her husband is to run the party.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7164968.stmRegardless of politics, would I vote for a 19 year old? I think not. Will the Pakistanis?However, more interesting and serious is that the USA is behind the return of Benazir Bhutto to Pakistan to 'stabilise' the relationship between USA and Pakistan and it has gone wrong.http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=1325There was no post mortem after her death at her husband's request. And now her body may be exhumed to discover whether it was bullets or a 'hit' on the head that killed her! Many other nameless people were killed then in the explosion and in the angry rampages that have swept Pakistan in the days that have followed. I hope that the elections will be postponed as is being suggested, for at least 3-4 months to let anger subside.Suzy
suzy.... When I heard that President Musharaff had been pressurised to give up his miliary status and employment, I was concerned, but I didn't anticipate this. To say 'it has gone wrong', is, I believe, to misinterpret the intention of planning general elections in Pakistan.
to let anger subside
Interesting that Musharaf has asked Scotland Yard to go to Pakistan to investigate the murder / assassination of Benazir Bhutto. I read recently that the lower and middle ranks of the Pakistani Army had been infiltrated by Al Queda, and they were responsible for the lax security and death.I wonder if Scotland Yard will get anywhere? Musharaf obviously has great faith in their crime solving ability and that they are unbiased. Whatever they find, will they be believed and will their recommendations be acted on?!Suzy
Well said man[url=http://www.forum.urduworld.com/forum/f220/faisal-raza-abidi-fights-403280/]faisal raza abidi fights[/url]
Since the assassination of Bhutto there has been the assassination of the governor of Punjabi province, a moderate Moslem. I cannot recall his name but he called for the repeal of the blasphemy laws that currently exist in the zPakidtani penal code and have been used by the Moslem extremist to oppress the Christian.s and other minorities. This governor was assassinated by his own Moslem body guards.I heard that the slain governor's son was kidnapped by extremist in retaliation for the killing of Bin Laden by U S special ops forces.A few months ago Pakistan Minister of Minority Affairs Shabbaz Bhatti was killed by extremist. The Pakistani government refused him protection or an armored car. The man was a Christian and again called for the removal of the blasphemy laws from Pakistan's legal code.Both Governor Salmon Teezer and Shabbaz Bhatti spike on behalf of Asia Bibi and called for her release. Asia Bibi is the Christian mother who gave a testimony for Christ. Presently she has been sentenced to death by the Pakistani court and could very well be the first woman to be executed in Pakistan for blasphemy for blashemy against Mohammed.How is it that Osama Bin Laden could hide in Pakistan all these years and Pakistani intelligence did not know of it? Al Queda and the Taliban have infiltrated the Pakistani military. At least some in the intelligence community fear that. The concern is Pakistan has nuclear weapons. If the extremist get control of those weapons then the unthinkable could happen. Add to the fact India has nukes. I shudder to think what could take place between these two countries in terms of a nuclear exchange. For the last several decades India and Pakistan have been enemies. They almost cane to blows in the mid 90's. Diplomatic efforts diffused that tension.In years past Richard Wormbrandt warned the western church over the evils of communism. He equated to a satanic system. Now the danger is Islam. I say it again the danger to the church is Islam. Satan is manifesting evil through the opression of Islam.I am not suffering from islamiaphobia nor do I hate moslems. But in praying for the persecuted church the moslems are the biggest persecuters of Christians. It was Moslem jihadist who gave us 9/11.The moslens need Jesus. Just as Richard Wormbrandt was that Jesus was the answer to communism saw the answer to Islam has to be Jesus.------------Blaine Scogin
