Zarkin Frood: I am devastated. I'm sitting here at my desk trying to pull it together. This is awful. I don't know what to do.
Since the American media won't show it, here's what I found at Le Monde:


That is the scene directly after the attack.


Looks like that guy is singing a song on Broadway...

If Pakistan falls apart, maybe India will go in to "protect" the Paki nukes. If Cheney or Iran can't get there first.

I will stand on a mountaintop and shout this: Islam is a disgusting, despicable, violent and dangerous belief system.

Not all muslims are bad people. Just look at Barak Hussein Obama.

BunkyBrewman: Whoopty Whoo The Precious Bongo Boy: BunkyBrewman: This is how world wars begin.

I sincerely hope the Pakistani government can keep control of their country. This is not good, not good at all... for any of us.

Let us hope that at the very least this incident calls attention to the damaging impact of the fear of empowered females that seeps from America like pus from a septic wound.

Oh, Whoopty Whoo... you are slightly off the mark here.

Empower is a word used by weak minded people who need the strength to become the person Benazir Bhutto was. She wasn't "empowered" by anything. She was an intelligent, strong, charactered individual who truly believed she could bring stability to the country she loved. Nobody "empowered" her. Furthermore, you must be mistaking the US for countries that actually suppress women. (see any Middle-Eastern country for prime examples) Attempting to state that US women create a fear amongst American men is typical of the misandrist approach to feminism.


Charactered? Just like Jack Abramoff had character.

She was a hypocrite and a corrupt ho. The only reason she was back in Pakistan was because Musharraf pardoned her for corruption charges that she hardly denied, then she goes around saying bad things are in Pakistan and how much Musharraf sucks.

Yeah thanks, biatch, you didn't help the situation. Maybe you should have helped when you were actually in power instead of being a gold digging slut.

You make the mistake of assuming that people in large groups are that sensible.

They will blame, in the following order:

A: Israel
B: America
C: Bush
D: Christianity.

This also happens to be the order in which people on the far left will place blame.

jack21221: If you had read my own post, which you had quoted, you'd see that I mentioned that the Maryland law had been struck down even prior to Lawrence v Texas. My point is that it's still on the books.

The 18th Amendment is still "on the books", but it's been repealed via later amendment. Just because something still exists in writing from an anachronistic era doesn't mean that it's worth mentioning as a negative about current American society, especially if it cannot be enforced.

Sadly, the public will view this with the same indifference that it views all atrocities against women. While it may dominate the headlines now, you can soon shelve this one right beside the stories of forced clitoral mutilation, abortion clinic bombings, Princess Di, and the countless other stories of women who suffer yet little more than ripple in the world pool gets created.

This is very troubling for Pakistan, and much more so for political crisis the country finds itself in thanks in large part to President Musharraf.

There's so many groups and individuals that stand to benefit from the death of Bhutto; even more stand to benefit from the kind of chaos, instability, and unrest these kind of events unleash.

Figuring out who's actually responsible is going to be like playing the JFK edition of Clue.

Actually, with the social and political climate in Pakistan and the Middle East in general, it's going to make the JFK edition of Clue look like "Where's Waldo?".

farkinmontana:
And if we do that...we're no better than Musharref and any other violent and arroangt Muslim. You don't end violence with violence -- it simply creates more anger, hostility, and unrest. The last person who blamed a race of people for the world's problems was a guy named Hitler.

I know that your post may have been slightly tongue in cheek, and it infuriates me how the culture of violence has infiltrated Islam, which at its core IS a peaceful religion. However, the solution cannot possible be by killing them all.


That's not...technically...true. If you actually do manage to wipe out an entire ethnic group (or whatever) that you're in conflict with, the problems you were having with that group really will go away. You may get all new problems (such as a coalition of other folks on your crap list banding together to take you on, and/or a home revolt), but it will in fact solve the initial problems. You can, in fact, stop violence with a sufficient quantity of violence to annihilate all opposition. Managing to do so is another matter entirely.

Not advocating it, just stating facts as I see them and how history seems to have borne them out.

That's the most sensible and coherent thing I've ever seen you write, Whoopty. But alas, it's not just some crazed misogynist he-man woman hater. She was actually a clever and well-educated adversary who actually posed a threat to Musharraf's "dictatocracy". So she had to be eliminated, by whomever was so depraved and twisted that they actually thought they were doing the right thing. I'm not so idealistic and unrealistic that I think good might actually come from this, but dammit if I don't hope.

Trick question, if one claims that it's untrue because Obama is actually a Christian, then the claim all Muslim are bad people could be true. If one agrees with the statement, then they show themselves to be ignorant of Barak Obama.

On the other hand, if I say that you're being a dickless wonder, well, that I think we can all agree on.
