Benzir Bhutto, June 21, 1953 – December 27, 2007

An assassin killed Benazir Bhutto, former prime minister of Pakistan, at a political rally today. Her supporters are taking it none too well: understandable, under the circumstances.

Some of them, at the hospital where she died, shouted "dog, Musharraf, dog!" according to the news. That must be a translation into English. In my opinion, killing Bhutto would be about the stupidest thing Musharraf could do, but people have pulled bonehead stunts before.

Meanwhile, Benazir Bhutto's family is going through a very rough time. My family and I pray for them. I hope that those who read this will do so, too: and pray for all victims of terrorism.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
