Benazir Bhutto Assassinated After Pakistan Rally

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated today after speaking at a rally. Late reports from Pakistan say that Bhutto was shot several times by a suicide bomber that blew himself up after he shot her. This is terrible news for a world that has been on edge since Osama bin Laden slipped out of Afghanistan after September 11th, 2001 and most likely is being hid by like minded followers in Pakistan. Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf is likely to re institute a security crack down there as angry Bhutto supporters will seek revenge after her death. Foreign policy experts believe that Pakistan is the most dangers country in the world right now because it has become home to many terrorist organization that have caused this huge country to become unstable and teetering on the edge of anarchy.

Most troubling to United States diplomats are the presence of nuclear weapons that Pakistan developed because of it's long standing feuded with neighboring country, India. While no one is going on the record in Washington right now and talking about potential Musharraf involvement in this assassination, there is no doubt that such ties will be examined in the days and weeks to come. For terrorist like Osama bin Laden, Benazir Bhutto was a treat to his twisted vision of the world in more ways that one. First, Bhutto's gender was a threat to extremest terrorist who believe that women should not be allowed to lead and second Benazir Bhutto was a true believer in democracy which is in total contrast to terrorist that believe in Islamic leadership.

As Benazir Bhuto supporters grieve at the loss of their leader today, soon grief will turn to anger and revenge against people they believe planned and executed today's attack that took Bhutto's life. All Americans should be concerned with today's assassination of Benazir Bhutto because if a large, nuclear armed, country like Pakistan falls into complete anarchy – all freedom loving nations of the world are at risk of potential attacks that could take the lives of innocent people around the world. The State Departments job of dealing with and keeping Pakistan's President Pervez Musharaf under control just became harder. 2008 will be the year millions of people around the world will be looking at Pakistan and hoping that democracy there does not fail because the alternative government that would be put into place afterward would make Iran look like a peaceful and loving nation.
