I was devastated to hear that she'd been killed. The only person who benefits from her death is the current Pakistani leader.

She was such a brave woman; she never hid even though she knew she might be killed.
I just pray that the elections will go as planned because if Musharraf postpones the elections there might be civil war.
I think all women should learn from her example. She stood up for what was right, even in the face of death, and she was not afraid and did not let those who opposed her take away her spirit and her love for her people.



You can't help but sigh when you think back to when you were a child and things were simpler, not as close. Women weren't being shot and people weren't being blown up. What is this world coming to?

Indeed :!:

I had no idea who she was, and nevertheless I've heard her name a million times today. May she rest in peace.

Well, actually I was shocked but it was predictable after a fertile attempt of assasination some time ago. Even my Mother - a person who keeps far from politics, was shocked when I told her the news as she remembers Bhutto since she [Bhutto] was young.
I'm not sure if here the impact is very strong, it's New Year's Eve and people pay attention only to discounts and sales... but there is loads of information, no analytics, just about the murder and about Bhutto's life.

First at all, I´m so sorry to hear that a human being is assassinated in that way.. :( :( . No one deserves to die in such a cruel way. I know this words just may be dust in the wind, but I´d like to use this forum to express my condolences to the family and her followers for such a irreparable lost, and I hope that the responsables of this atrocity will be caught soon and put in jail right away...

It´s difficult to say. As far as I know, she had many enemies that wanted her dead, so I must confess that, to me, the assassination was " A chronicle of a foretell dead"... In my humble opinion, there are two suspect: The first one would be the Pakistani military establishment, which is pretty involve in the polical life of the country. So, If she had been elected as a prime minister, she could have become in a obstacle for what they think is the best for the country, I mean, for them, it was very unconfortable to have as a prime minister someone who didn´t share their point of view. And the second suspect would be the islamic extremist, which will never accept the fact that a woman could hold the power in a islamic country..

....


I don´t think so... You see, Musharraff's regime is very weak, that´s the reason why he called her, to bring some stability to the country after he decided to declare the emergency state... So, It was very inconvinient for him that something happened to her, because he would be the first suspect.. I don´t think he is that stupid.. but who knows?
