Aw crap.
This was one of those dread mornings I woke up to headlines that made me feel like things are about to go turbo-pear-shaped.

Benazir Bhutto killed by suicide bomber.

Yep. My husband predicted it a couple of months ago. First thing I woke up to this morning was him shaking his head and saying, "They did it. They dusted her."

:-(

As someone has already stated this morning, "how can you possibly believe the Muslim religion is a peaceful religion" after hearing that. I don't think they know what they want...it certainly isn't to love others as God told them.

Not a good day. Bush looked visibly shaken.

calm... calm....

There's no saying it HAS to go real bad from here.

Odds just got worse, thats all.

Shame... she seemed like a real leader. Braver than seemed possible...

That sucks, they're really trying to topple Pakistan into the arms of chaos, death, and the Taliban.

Hammer said...

That was a crap thing to wake up to :(


I was hoping she was going to get elected again.

I wanted her to be elected again to.

I think her death will cause more death and chaos in Pakistan and effect other countries as well.

a-t-m - Yeah, you could see it coming, but still, one hoped...

mushy - yup...

zelda - yup...

Who is..... Carteach0? --true...

dirtcrashr - Pakistan has been wobbly for a long time-tragic

hammer - I was hoping so, too, but she's been so bold about going out in public that this did seem inevitable - I suppose she felt she had to

lainy - me too. I suppose we'll soon find out

That one was the bravest woman on the face of the earth. I'm still in awe that she was elected PM in a muslim country at age 35.

It's going to get bad. . worse than usual. .
