My thoughts on the Bhuto assasination

All I know is that I don't know what we should be doing.
What I *do* know is that we shouldn't really be doing much- if anything that these Presidential wannabes are suggesting.

Pakistan IS a sovereign country and Musharraf isn't the the ideal leader, but we gotta work with what we have.
Bhutto wasn't a saint either.

We don't need to be invading, or investigating, nor did we need to supply *our* T-men for an ex-leader of Pakistan. Just how would that have gone down- Hil, if our guys let her get killed?
That entire region has been corrupt as long as there has been a leader, it's not going to change no matter how much we wish it to. Musharraf isn't our friend, he also isn't our enemy. He's a guy trying to balance a modern 'liberal (in the old sense)' population with an Islamo fascist loving countryside, and stay in power.

The best I can see is that we really don't *do* anything. Try to let things cool down, and ....HEY! Maybe let the U.N. try to *do something* to keep Pakistan from erupting into civil war.
