Bhutto, Another Casualty In War On Terror

Our best hope to succeed Musharraf in Pakistan just got assassinated, meeting the same fate as her father and brothers. The same way that the pro-democracy anti-Syrian political leaders in Lebanon were assassinated over the last few years. Most recently about a month ago.

For the head-in-the-sanders out there, those who don’t believe there is a war on terror, this is what the war on terror is. It is between Islamofascists, the radical terrorists that use Islam as their pass to murder, and suicide bombers and assassins as their ballot for oppression and Taliban-style governance, and, people who prefer democratic style governance. This is what we are fighting and what we have been fighting from the time we first went into Afghanistan. This is your wake-up call.
