The Death of Benazir Bhutto

This Frontpage piece by Jacob Lakshin provides some of the most balanced and intelligent commentary out there on the death of Benazir Bhutto. She was far from perfect and made some significant strategic miscalculations, but ultimately was a voice of reason and progress for Pakistan, and her death is a real lost for the USA.

Fortunately for Pervez Musharraf, Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the assassination -- otherwise, of course, he was a prime suspect as Bhutto offered pretty much the only other acceptable electoral alternative to him for the United States. Nonetheless, he will no doubt be "persuaded" to convene a thorough investigation into the murder, and that's a good thing, as it's the only way to exonerate himself and forcibly remind the rest of the world, once again, of the presence and perniciousness of Islamofascism in the Middle East.

And if something happens to Musharraf, as well, well . . . let's just hope that the nukes are secured.

I just find it amazing there are some in America who need to be made aware of this menace. The Radicalized Islamic Fascists have declared war on US and the West. We have been in denial because the road to defeat this threat is almost as daunting as climbing Mt. Everest. We just won't get serious until something unbelievably horrible is laid on our doorstep.
It may just be our destiny to sacrifice more than we are willing.
