Dangerous Situation in Pakistan
When the Bush Assministration's attention shifted from the 9/11 terrorists in Afghanistan to invading Iraq in order to settle a Bush family grudge while grabbing for more oil, the original attackers have been able to use the distraction to mobilize, recruit and rebuild their network in the mountains of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Now, Pakistan is teetering on the verge of chaos, with the terrorist bombing attempt on former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's life. As it was, the attempt killed over 130 of her supporters. As we pointed out over the past year, Pakistan is the sole Muslim country with nuclear weapons, and al-Qaeda is gaining strength there, as the Taliban is gaining strength in Afghanistan. Dumbya's obsession with Saddam Hussein is coming back to haunt us all.
