Benazir Bhutto Assassinated In Pakistan

We haven’t had an earth shattering event in a little while, but the assassination of Benazir Bhutto will certainly have some long lasting and possibly very tragic long term results. While there seems to have been a track record that suggests that Bhutto wasn’t the rose of the Middle East like she seemed to be of late, she surely seemed to me to be dedicated to positive change in her region, and her death was a horrific act of unbridled terror. So many were after her, it probably was just a matter of time before this happened. May she rest in peace and may she always be remembered for her selfless dedication to her homeland of Pakistan.

Now however, many “what ifs and what nows” are remaining. Al Qaeda has already claimed responsibility, however most believe that may or may not be true. London reports that top suspects may be two warlords: Baitullah Mehsud, a militant commander of the Pakistani Army who has Al Qaeda and Taliban ties, and Haji Omar, the leader of the Pakistani Taliban who fought against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Some believe that Pervez Musharraf himself may have had a hand in the murder, or at least turned a blind eye to the possibility of it.

It is too early to speculate on who did it, or how widespread the effects may be. In my humble opinion though, here are a few givens that seem as clear as black and white.

  1. We should soon see the true colors of Pervez Musharraf. If he doesn’t actively go after Al Qaeda that are knowingly hidden in his remote provinces, and militarily eradicate them, or allow our troops to cross the borders and actively pursue them and Osama Bin Laden ourselves, we should immediately withdraw the billions of dollars in aid and money that the USA sends to Pakistan, end of story.

  1. Those that are still convinced that radical Islam can be handled by any sort of democratic or diplomatic process need to open their eyes and realize that it isn’t any one leader of any nation in this region that is the rabid beast. It isn’t Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Turkey, or India. It is radical Islam period. It is a small (compared to the nations’ populous) group of crazed and fanatical people bent on wiping out Western Civilization, Middle Eastern growth, and anyone that doesn’t subscribe to their view of Muslim belief, period.

  1. Leaders (any that are left with any possibility of helping their people) of those countries need to be as worried about radical Islamic influence as the rest of us do. They kill more of their own than they kill of their “enemy”. Until leaders like Musharraf and the likes of Bhutto take a stance to protect themselves, they shouldn’t expect us to come in and bail them out. Yes, it is in the interest of the USA to fight against radical fanatics, but the Lord helps those that help themselves, and I for one am tired of wasting billions of dollars on a group of people that just sit back and let themselves be walked upon. I don’t think any of us mind helping the weak with our military might, but when they don’t take what we’ve started and build upon it, the plan will eventually fail.

  1. Benazir Bhutto sacrificed her life to try and make a difference. Instead of retreat and cowardice, more moderate influential people of that region must now more than ever ban together in stronger numbers to wipe out radical jihad.

  1. Action must be swift. Sometimes, events like these if not dealt with by a swift and quick blow can lead to catastrophic consequences in a hurry. The Assassin’s War has begun, and the moonbat Islamofacists don’t like Musharraf either; rest assured there is a bulls eye on his head as well. The rats are ready to swarm, and I fear the country of Pakistan will get worse before it gets better, and we are just about spread as thin as we can be. They are going to have to unite as a people and come together in their own multi-national coalition to eliminate the gorilla warlords and evil doers. If the wrong person gets into power, the results could be world changing in a place that has nuclear capability. Elections will already be postponed or cancelled in Pakistan, and should the assassins take out a few more leaders, watch out!

I pray for Pakistan and the other countries of this region. Much unrest, violence, and bloodshed is imminent there. May the grace of God and Allah bring some needed courage and change in their nations. And, may God bless America in Her fight to take the right stand and be victorious against these evils.
