Benazir Bhutto assassinated. A brave woman who risked all for her country. What a tragedy for Pakistan. What a terrible further tragedy for the Bhutto family. It was only 13 days to a general election that she had a good chance of winning.
What conceivable good can come from this evil action? Civil strife, more killings, abandoning even the fragile pretence at democratic process? Perhaps the only bright spot - an intensified revulsion for the murderous thugs who could only see one way of addressing her ideas namely to kill her. Al Qaeda vermin have claimed responsibility for the killing.
