    I will limit my comments to BB’s political record;

    The first time around when she became the Prime Minister, She had the Bhutto name but was too young and two na├»ve and simply wasn’t ready for the job.

    The second time round her stint was marred by backdoor intrigues by Nawaz Sharif and the then Military establishment. Her difficulties were compounded by the actions of her Husband and the 10% stigma, how much complicit she was? That’s an open question..

    Come 2007, she had grown and aged well, made all the right moves, kept her husband at bay, recounted her mistakes and become wiser, shrewder and I sometimes felt that she was sincere in dealing with the current problems facing Pakistan. But, one thing didn’t change, she was still quite stubborn and after the first attempt on her life should have grasped the gravity of the situation, should have followed basic security protocols, the Jialaa security around her seemed very un-professional, a good security in charge keeps his leader in check, and foresees and forestalls any fool hardy move of the one he is protecting.

    There is no doubt that her life was filled with extraordinary achievements / debacles, and was a driving force for her supporters, but her march towards power was abruptly cut short and we will never know, whether, her third stint in power ( which was not a certainty) would have propelled her towards greatness or yet another unceremonious exit.

    Her legacy will remain full of contradictions and sadly, incomplete.

    What she did in power was so insignificant as compared to what she had inherited as the next and then the only Bhutto – very true!

    Nice link, Self.

    I wonder how many self-righteous PPP members have seen this.

    WOW. WHAT A LOAD OF SHIT. She raped our country for many years and was trying to do it again? Are you a complete moron? Sure, no one should die, but to make her out as a “hero?” N*gga PLEASE.
