Pakistan: Bhutto Assassination

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benazir_Bhutto

Probably one of the most shocking news to hit the international community was the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the leader of the opposition party in Pakistan. There had been a great deal of tension in the area for some time with the dictator-like ways of current President Musharraf striving to maintain control of the nation by any means necessary. Who is to blame for such a heinous crime is something we would all like to know, but the reality is that whoever it is should be ashamed of themselves....

Its shocking the extent that individuals would go to retain power. Bhutto's death is not just a travesty because she was a political figure, but mainly because she was an individual who sought change and progression: who wanted to utilize her knowledge and experience to bring Pakistan into a better position in the international community. Her assassination sheds light on the unfortunate reality that progress is not always welcomed with open arms. Whether her party can truly rebuild in so short of time is something we can only cross our fingers and hope for...

This heinous act of murder is truly barbaric and a cowardly move on the hands of those who partook in this action. To take the life of an individual just because their views differed from yours or even that their course of making progress would clash with your desire to retain power/wealth/prestige is pathetic in so many ways. Every individual carries their own beliefs, experiences, etc. and no one has a right to challenge an individual in such a way as to be afraid of standing up for what you are proud of. Benazir Bhutto is truly someone to admire, especially for her desire to stand up for change, even when she knew that her life was constantly in danger. My prayers go out to her family and all those who placed their hope in her hands. The world we live in isnt perfect, but such acts are truly unacceptable. This act of terrorism should not be a wrench in the gears for progress, but hopefully Bhutto's party will be able to bring forth the dream and changes that Bhutto herself carried so proudly and passionately. There truly needs to be more leaders like her in this world...

Let us hope that Pakistan will be able to shift gears and be able to truly conduct matters in a way that gives the Pakastani government and its civilians the amount of respect and freedom that they all truly deserve.
