Like many people, I was shocked to hear today of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. But I was also struck about the way it was carried out The assassin first shoots her, then blows himself up? It seemed a bit odd, I mean, isn't the modus operandi typically the suicide bomber just blows himself up in close proximity to their intended victim?
Now comes the news that the US is sending a "surge" of troops into Pakistan in the wake of the assassination, after Pakistan had temporarily restricted US involvement in cross-border military operations as well as paramilitary operations on its soil.Hmmmm.
One only needs to look at the globe and see how nice and cozy Pakistan is in regards to Iran. Perhaps this lends some credence to Ron Paul's claim that we're getting ready to bomb Iran on MSNBC's Morning Joe today.
Very curious, indeed.
