Pakistan's Bhutto assassinated

Pakistan's Bhutto assassinated By Zafar M. Sheikh and Paul Wiseman, USA TODAY RAWALPINDI, Pakistan — Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was killed Thursday in a suicide attack after a campaign rally here, dashing hopes for a smooth transition to democracy and creating chaos across the country.

This is disheartening, though not completely surprising. My previous post on this was a bit more optimistic about the potential of new elections. I should have known better.

People in the US get all hyper about politics and start blaming the opposition for all the evils of the world. But comparing what happens in the US to governments anywhere else on the globe can only show how good the US has it.
