what's going on in Pakistan?

Has anyone asked whether the return from ‘voluntary exile’ of Bhutto was worth 140 human lives? “We are prepared to risk our lives”, shouts she into a microphone, “but we are not prepared to surrender our great nation”. I’m sure those who died didn’t mean to surrender their lives, not like this anyway. The most appalling thing, however, is how no one is criticising Bhutto’s management of her magical return (as if it was an actual physical return of democracy), knowing she was targeted and still going back to Pakistan with great hype exercised only by Hollywood bimbos.

I question her ‘miraculous’ survival; I question the motives behind the suicide attacks; I’m more inclined to believe that Bhutto’s own people were behind the attacks as a twisted form of political campaign. After all, it’s always easy to blame it on the bad guys – that’s what they are for!

Why do people lose their sense of judgement whenever ‘democracy’ is mentioned? What’s wrong and evil is still wrong and evil, even if it’s done in the name of democracy.

And Bhutto is ugly.
