Benazir Bhutto's Death Heard Around the World

This is a true tragedy. I have been following Benazir Bhutto’s return from exile and rise to power (again) during the latter-half of 2007. I heard an interview with her on NPR – she was passionate, she was rational, and most of all, she considered her democratic ideals to be Pakistan’s future.

She was willing to build alliances with Nawaz Sharif and General Musharraf in order to secure the Pakistan’s growth. Now, who knows what will happen. Sharif is a corrupt man that is rumored to have met with Osama bin Laden. If there is a person to harbor terrorists and groups fighting the Western world – Sharif is your man.

I don’t have a lot to say in this blog – just that it saddens me to hear about Bhutto’s death. This reinforces the issues surrounding terrorism and how prevalent evil really is. I thank our troops for securing Iraq and pray that they will succeed in the fight against terror; it is obvious that the fight will be long and costly.
