Benazir Bhutto has died





HalfBloodPrince
...this just came on the news half a minute ago, so I don't have a text source to show you.

Turn on the TV.

They tried several times since she came back into the country.
So far none of the extremists groups have claimed responsibility.

I'm not sure why they would do it.
When she was in office she diverted huge amounts of money to herself.
But, that's no different than any other leader in that part of the world.
Is it because of being a woman?

And these people have nuc weapons.


I hope that victims of suicide bomber extreamists
get all the virgins in heaven.
They are the true martyrs.

Benazir Bhuto has been assasinated. It is believed that this is one of the worst crisis that Pakistan is facing in its History. All election works have been halted since then.

Analysts say that - It may be members of the Taliban and al Qaeda, both of which operate in Pakistan or those close to Musharraf's political party could not be ruled out of suspicion.

It is said that a AK 47 gun was used. It is unclear whether the firing which took first killed Benazir or the Bomb Blast.

And one thing i dont understand was - If this was planned and executed by terrorists, then Why did they terrorist target her ??? If god exists, he / she only knew the truth.

Pakistan - Still a long way to go.........

The extremists there are making a move for a Caliphate type of government. It has nothing to do with her being a woman. She was a heavy supporter of democracy and that's exactly the opposite of what these people want.
icecool
yes, the world is an emptier place without her

she has advocated democracy throughout her political presence and in countries like pakistan with a guge tribal local influence that never went down easily. this applies not only to pakistan but to most of the world - no continent is spared. there is always a majority and a minoriti r somebody thinks they are stronger than the guy in the next valley - and to prove it they usually revert to killing instead of talking.

be it racial, ehnic, religious differences - ppl just dont talk anymore - mind you, nothing new there. it goes back world wide all through human history and we just don't seem to learn.

pakistan in particular at the moment is a powder keg anyway so we can expect that any possible progress the country made recently in terms of becoming more tolerant to ALL its people is going to be lost - back to square one.

poor family, poor people.

cheers???
not today

I highly doubt that it was an extremist organization that did it...Probably someone who just wanted their own political way and happened to have the 'materials' to take her out.

well.......

considering that she came back from 8 years in exile
considering that her welcome parade was targeted and lots of people died
considering that she was placed under house arrest
considering that her residence was surrounded with barbed wire - not to keep the baddies out but to keep her in
considering that the police put that barbed wire there
considering that thousands of her supporters have been arrested
considering that and lots more

i don't think so
she was after all a leader of the opposition party
????
HalfBloodPrince
That's what I'm saying. Its not Islamists doing it because she's a woman. She was prime minister before and this didn't happen.

People who don't want her back in Pakistan, and more so back in a position of power, wanted her to die.

I was shocked to hear the news..from the news she was shot in the neck and chest several times. Yes definitely it's all about political agenda killing someone who at least want to tried to bring prosperity to their country. I said those countries which instable in terms of political agenda, riots, killing among themselves(races/tribes) just waste of resources-countries. How long these countries want to stay poor and poorer/uncivilized and torturing those who want to seek better life and those (who killed people like Benazir) just one selfish people. Regime soldiers *. Two times regime soldiers * ... her father and now benazir!!!

Wishful: :cry:These unfortunate countries rise and help your poor unfortunate countries.
jwellsy
What is a Caliphate type of government?
I don't know what that means.

Unfortunately this is not the first political homicide in pakistan. There were political homicide before el qaide

Quote:
[edit] Conspiracy theories about the crash
No evidence has come to light to prove a conspiracy, although several theories do exist. In the World Policy Journal[citation needed], John Gunther Dean, a former US ambassador to India, blamed the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, for orchestrating Zia's assassination in retaliation for Pakistan developing a nuclear weapon to counteract India, and to prevent Zia, an effective Muslim leader, from continuing to influence US foreign policy.

General Hamid Gul, who would become the Director-General of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) after Zia's death, has stated that the CIA was behind the plane crash[citation needed], but his claim appears unlikely, considering Arnold Raphel, the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, and General Herbert Wassom, head of the American military attache in Islamabad, were also aboard the plane when it crashed. Some theories have even gone on to say that it was an act perpetrated in coordination by the KGB and the CIA.[citation needed]

Immediately after the crash, investigators from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were rushed to the scene, especially because of the presence of the American diplomats onboard. The FBI investigation determined that the crash had been accidental, but rumours remained that there was a 'secret' reason discovered.

According to other rumours, it was determined that nerve gas had been released in the cockpit, disabling the pilots and sending the aircraft head-long into the ground. It was also alleged that this nerve-gas bomb had been highly sophisticated and thus the agents of a government must have been involved.[citation needed]

Which government, was the question. Pakistan viewed itself as being surrounded by enemies, the leaders of almost all of which wanted Zia dead. India was the top suspect, followed by Afghanistan and the Soviet Union. In addition, Zia had enemies at the top level within the government of Pakistan itself. Former prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto was accused of having rejoiced at Zia's death, because Zia had ordered her father, Ali Bhutto hanged. Also, Afghanistan under the Communist rule of Najibullah clearly wanted Zia dead, as Zia was aiding the Afghan Mujahidin who were fighting to overthrow Najibullah.

The other question was how the nerve gas bomb got into the cockpit. The aircraft had been under 24-hour armed guard. Access to the aircraft was strictly controlled by the Pakistan military. It seemed impossible that someone could have sneaked in and placed the bomb there without the knowledge of persons inside the Pakistan armed forces.

People have pointed to some senior dissatisfied generals of the Pakistan Army itself [2] (for example, Mirza Aslam Beg, who was scheduled to fly with Zia in this flight, but changed his plans at the last minute - He was later accused by Zia's son Ijaz-ul-Haq as being behind the attack), the United States, the Soviet Union, Israel, the Bhutto family, Al-Zulfiqar and even the Ahmadi faction as a potential suspect. Conspiracies about the deaths persist.

Barbara Crossette, bureau chief of The New York Times in South Asia from 1988 to 1991 has written that, "Of all the violent political deaths in the twentieth century, none with such great interest to the U.S. has been more clouded than the mysterious air crash that killed president (and Army Chief General) Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq of Pakistan in (August) 1988, a tragedy that also claimed the life of the serving American ambassador and most of General Zia’s top commanders

Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility...it's pretty obvious.

Yah it was shocking news for all people over the world.There is so hot environment in Pakistaan,Everyone was expecting sopmething dangerous to happen.People want their government,They want government like India.But these terorists will never understand words like "Peace","Love" etc .They killed strongest Hope of pakistaan that was to make it Democratic country.
and now so funny thing,Everyone is in doubt that how Benazir Bhutto died,due to bullets or due to head injury inspite of concentrating on who killed her. Laughing Laughing
Finally Benazir Bhutto got expected death in unexpected way(to some extent).
HalfBloodPrince
Well she is sort of an idiot, she was in an armored, bullet-proof car where, had she stayed inside, she would have been safe. But no, she came out of the sun-roof, completely exposing herself as defenseless.

Isn't that a little stupid of her?

Quote:
It was the year 1996. Benazir Bhutto as prime minister of Pakistan had asked Pervez Musharraf, then her Director General of Military Operations, to rehabilitate Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in Jalalabad from Sudan.

Bin Laden, who had shifted base to the African country after the Afghan war, had been thrown out by Khartoum after intense American pressure. Musharraf brought the Al-Qaida mastermind to Jalalabad, a city in eastern Afghanistan, and rehabilitated him.

That, a decade later, Al-Qaida should claim responsibility for Bhutto’s assassination marks not just a cruel irony, it also underlines once again the risk of Frankenstein’s monster turning upon the master.

Bhutto’s return to Pakistan this year may have been marked with her claim to wipe out terrorism, but the fact remains that it was her interior minister, Major General (retd) Naseerullah Babar, who played a key role in raising the Taliban and consolidating Al-Qaida in Afghanistan. The reason: a desire to secure strategic depth by controlling Pakistan’s western border, and to have a say in future Afghanistan affairs.

The present day terrorism in India, and now turning on Pakistan, can, to an important extent, be traced to that fateful decision taken by the Bhutto government.

Taliban soon became host to a menacing jihadi conglomerate — the Qaida-led International Islamic Front (IIF) — the components of which included anti-India gangs like Lashkar-e-Toiba, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, which later became Jaish-e-Mohhamed, HuJI and others.

History never goes wrong. You play with fire, you end up being burnt with fire. Benazir not just played with the fire, she had a hand in creating the fire. For whatever moderate posturing she portrayed, she too once upon a time played to the gallery and tried to appease the Islamic junta of her country.

I wish the future leaders of that country would learn a lesson from this.

HalfBloodPrince
She didn't die from the bullets or the bomb; she died when her head hit the sun-roof lever.

There is a higher hand involved.
misterXY
they say they will never really know. theres too many theories. hello JFK in Pakistan
Magicman
There are some shocking pictures taken of the incident with audio commentary by the photographer from the New York Times. They can be found here.
Please be warned that some of these photos are a little brutal.
akshar
not that she was a great person etc etc
But a kind of hope to restore democracy in Pakistan
liljp617
-.- Musharraf said in an interview that her death is her fault because she stood up in the sunroof. When does this guy stop?
carlospro7
what a tragic death even though she did stand defenseless in a place where people wanted to kill her
ganesh
It is really tragic to see this news.

Nobody deserves to die like this.

I just hope peace prevails in this world and people don't resort to violence to solve their problems or issues.
Cddhesh
