Benazir Bhutto is assassinated in suicide attack.

Pakistan was facing the spectre of civil war last night after Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister, was assassinated in a suicide attack. Miss Bhutto, 54, an iconic politician who had twice served as prime minister, was killed as she left an election rally in the city of Rawalpindi. Witnesses described how a man opened fire on Miss Bhutto as she stood through the sunroof of a car, hitting her in the throat and chest. Seconds later, he detonated a bomb, leaving Miss Bhutto critically injured and dozens of her followers killed or wounded. Police said that 16 others died in the blast.

Benazir Bhutto had many enemies who wanted her dead. I wrote before in this blog that Benazir Bhutto was warned about suicide attacks on her yet she ignored these warnings and went along with her campaign. She is a very silly woman and has ignored common sense. She was living safely in exile due to her previous political life in Pakistan yet she would not leave alone. That is what I wrote on the 21st October 2007 after 139 lives had been lost when a suicide bomber targetted her parade.

So now, there we have it, she ignored common sense yet again and she has been killed. The terrorists have won yet again and taken another 16 lives with them. Yes, I was shocked when I heard the news on the radio but then anger set in that this woman was so stupid - so stupid not to leave Pakistan alone and remain safely in exile.

Because of this event Pakistan may erupt into civil war, a war that Benazir Bhutto in her own stubborn way helped to start.
