The myth of a "pro-India" Benazir

dec 27th, 2007

she was mostly pro-numbered-swiss-account, and anti-india. remember her shrill speeches, and also her father, zulfikar "we will eat grass to build the anti-india nuclear bomb" bhutto? there is no reason to be sentimental. her reign was no better, and perhaps even worse, than musharraf's, in terms of peaceful relations to india and hindus.

benazir certainly chivvied on the terrorists to ethnically cleanse kashmiri pundits.

she was a monster. she and that maleeha lodhi were always paraded in front of the TV cameras as poster girls -- "see, see, we have attractive, articulate, poised women in pakistan, who are PLU (people like you), and see, they went to haaaarvard, to". this is a potemkin facade -- these were the only two such. all other 83 million women in pakistan are chattel, raped and brutalized, including gang-raped on orders from the village council, walking baby factories.

To add one more of Ms. Bhutto's "pro-India peaceful" pursuits, she was the one who created the Taliban. India's then High Commisionner to Pukistan G. Parthasarathy says so. Everybody in the media, especially the US media conveniently forget that.

This comment is worth repeating..

Rewrite of history already happening!

Anyone catch the Chris Matthews show (Hardball) on MSNBC? Bhutto was compared to Gandhi by Anne Curry and to MLK by Chris Matthews!! Hilarious

On one of Wolf Blitzer's segments (on CNN), Carol Costello compared her to JFK!!! How quickly people forget the billions this woman and her husband funneled into Swiss accounts!!An instance of blatant whitewashing of history

All day on the cable news channels in the US they've been blathering about how BB went on a "self-imposed exile".

Here is what Reuters has to say on the matter

In 1999, both Bhutto and her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, were sentenced to five years in jail and fined $8.6 million on charges of taking kickbacks from a Swiss company hired to fight customs fraud. A higher court later overturned the conviction as biased. Bhutto, who had made her husband investment minister during her period in office from 1993 to 1996, was abroad at the time of her conviction and chose not to return to Pakistanxdnvsnnk
