"A horrible inevitability"

That is how blogger/columnist Mark Steyn described today's assassination of former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto. I couldn't agree more. After all the previous attempts to take her life, and with her insistence that she continue to make public appearances, it was only a matter of time before someone was successful in taking her out.

It is scary to see what is going on in Pakistan, because that basket-case of a country is one of the ground zeros in our war on Islamic terrorism, and is a country of over 160 million people that is full of radicalism and instability. Ann Coulter describes Pakistan best in one of her recent columns:
The entire history of Pakistan is this: There are lots of crazy people living there, they have nuclear weapons, and any Pakistani leader who prevents the crazies from getting the nukes is George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison all rolled into one.
Good Day to You, Sir
