I tried to bring that also to the thread but it went "unnoticed" and BTW the only claims of guilt was by a phone call from an "unknown location"

Is going to be interesting how the markets react tomorrow if the chaos gets worst already it was down by almost 200 points today.

manzoor, if you're referring to me as a racist, you couldn't be further from the truth, as anyone who has been here long enough to read my posts will tell you.

I am slightly intolerant of the insensitive and and uncivilized, of the intellectually dishonest and the narrow minded. I care nothing whatsoever for anyone's color, religion, ethnicity, or biological malfunctions, as long as they are first and foremost a human being of some worth.

In your case I'll await further developments.

Did I say I thought it was true? Am I pretending I know the truth? No. All I said was they claimed responsibility.

My source is a link someone posted earlier in the thread. Go find it yourself.

Well, considering the factions at play in Pakistan - it's not exactly Rocket Science, is it? So you can hardly blame people for verbalizing their opinions re: the culprits... It seems to basically boil down to two possiblities - muslim extremists or the Pakistani military/secret services.

what is more worrying...

this lady was assasinatedby bullets when the suicide bomber failed, by a leader who assumed emergency powers in the name of democracy?

Or that the stock market took a 1.42% hammering today... and they are using this as an excuse?

The stock market is as skittish as a new bride, because deep down they all know just how fragile the economy is. I'm not surprised at this. Oil will/has gone up over it, and that too is just a reflection of how delicately balanced the whole house of cards has become.

According to CNN's Wolf Blitzer. Bhutto sent out an email on October stating that if ever she was murdered, Musharaf would be behind this.

I have no proof of this email. Just reporting what was on CNN a short while ago. No smoking gun here.


That's hardly proof either. She had more enemies than just him.

I think pointing the finger at Musharaf is very premature. She was annoying alive, but making her a martyr and instigating possible civil war is not what you do if you want to remain in power. I doubt he's shedding any tears, but probably just because he's glad someone else did it.

But there are some who think the Bush Administration is not without blame. Hussain Haqqani, a former top aide to Bhutto and now a professor at Boston University, thinks the U.S., which has counted Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf as a key ally against terrorism since 9/11, bears some of the responsibility. "Washington will have to answer a lot of questions, especially the Administration," he says. "People like me have been making specific requests to American officials to intervene and ask for particular security arrangements be made for her, and they have been constantly just trusting the Musharraf Administration." U.S. officials said they were leery of intervening in another nation's internal affairs, and didn't want to give Bhutto Washington's imprimatur.

Just reading that on yahoo right now. Is it wrong of me to think that it isn't our job to protect her in her own country? I'm sorry she got killed and all that, and it really saddens me to think what all is going to happen as a result but I think asking the US to offer up protection for her is going out in a bit of a limb regardless of our dealings with Musharraf.

Well with so many "things going on right now" I take any angle to any conspiracy as something to take into consideration.

Is going to be a report or two been released in the next week or two about some numbers that will affect the markets again and it may turn our economic situation to the worst.

But now we will be more interested on Pakistan civil unrest future and their very much until now advertise nuclear power, now all you hear is the danger of their 25 nuclear heads falling in the wrong hands.

How very interesting the game is played and how conveniently is pursue.

I hope investors do continue to freak out and over-react - it just means everything is on sale for the calm and rational investor! I love market down turns - most people buy high and sell low
I hope the DOW tanks tomorrow - more buying opportunity for me!

I agree. What are we supposed to do, send in the Marines to escort her? She's not a US dignitary, all Musharaf would have to do is say "Get your soldiers out of my country."

From what I read, shots rang out as she stood in the sunroof?? of her SUV and waved at the crowd. She was hit at once in the neck and head. Then an explosion engulfed her SUV and maybe destroyed any remaining evidence??

I thought OMG Dallas 1963. There is no comparison of course, but, i dont buy that this the work of Islamic fundamentalists. The marksmanship, like Dallas, was too good, too precise. No crazed suicide attacker with an AK47, I dont buy it. Just ty getting in 2 or more head/neck shots in a moving target in a few seconds. No way.

Whoever is behind this had the power and authority to muster the best killers money could buy to do this shameful deed.

Like Dallas, we will probably never know........

the world is a poorer place for losing such a stateswomen, and another dream is extinguished.......and the drums of war beat louder.

I'm in agreement with you on the theory that the bomber was only a cover for the sniper. Really I don't see how we will ever find out the real killer in this case, just who supported them.

It is really amazing how some assassinations are spot on in execution while others a repeat failures?


I am talking about the five or so attempts on Mr. Musharraf's life, and the second one on Benazir's. It seems like these terrorists/assassins are really clumsy when it comes to our good ole Mr. Musharraf.

Oh and also really interesting that elections were just a few days away! Perhaps another interesting point is that inspite of all the promises of assisting the war on terror good ole' Osama has never been found 7th year running.

Ah I do hope someone in the Bush admin. can put 2 and 2 together ...

Ok if they cant here it is 2 + 2 = 22/Musharraf/Killed/Her

Here is an interesting analysis :

www.rediff.com...

I suppose I should clarify this is a slightly older article about the good gentleman (Mr. Musharraf) and his deft handling of the powers that think they are in control. But this should give the reader some background of his style of politics.

I don't see how these were impossibly precise. She was sticking out of her sunroof, so you're only aiming at her upper body. And an AK-47 is an automatic weapon, lots of bullets were probably fired with only two hitting. The explosion was probably there to seal the deal.

I don't get how terrorists cna be responsible for previous bomb attacks (which failed), but for some reason learnging from their mistakes and using a gun was beyond their comprehension? The previous bombing was one piece of shrapnel away from being a complete success, considering how many people they actually did kill.
