Pakistan's Bhutto detained ahead of mass protest

Pakistan's Bhutto detained ahead of mass protest - Yahoo! News By Kamran Haider and Sophie Walker Mon Nov 12, 4:36 PM ET
LAHORE/LONDON (Reuters) - "Pakistani police put opposition leader Benazir Bhutto under house arrest for a week on Tuesday as the Commonwealth threatened suspension unless President Pervez Musharraf repealed a state of emergency."

More fun in the East. It seems like the stretch of land from the Mediterranean Sea to the Sea of Japan is just boiling with protests, martial law and near government collapse. What gets me is how a large part of the US body politic is whining and moaning about Iraq but ignores the equally distressing and dangerous things happening in places like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, etc.

Seems people the world over just can't see past their noeses.
