AP - Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday in a suicide bombing that also killed at least 20 others at a campaign rally, a party aide and a military official said.There has been a sucession of news stories this year from Pakistan that has reminded me of nothing so much as the fall of Iran to the mullahs.
We have spent $10 billion dollars, often delivered in cash, to secure a military dictator who is unpopular with his people and not loyal to either democracy or America. Why? The same stupid games we played in Iran and that have worked about as well.
The difference is that when Pakistan falls to anti-American religious extremists in large part because of our actions Pakistan already has their nuclear bombs.
A sad day of Pakistan. It should be a day of reflection over our foreign policy. What type of foreign policy do you want?
