Brave Words, Prudent Words

When Benzair Bhutto was returning to Pakistan, Baitullah Mehsud said he'd meet her with suicide bombers.

Now Bhutto's dead. Part of the team that killed her was a suicide bomber. And, more Pakistanis have died in the following riots than the suicide bomber killed.

Baitullah Mehsud, Al-Qaeda-linked Pakistani Taliban commander who probably plans to spend the rest of his life in Pakistan, says he didn't do it."

Whether or not he had a hand in the hit, I think that Mehsud is showing good judgment. Apart from a few special-interest groups, I doubt that anyone with a hand in Bhutto's assassination is likely to win Pakistani popularity polls.

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.
