Spreading freedom ?(freeance and peeance as fellow Atriots would call it)
Bomber Kills U.S. Diplomat in Pakistan-
KARACHI, Pakistan - A suicide attacker rammed a car packed with explosives into a vehicle carrying an American diplomat in Pakistan's largest city, killing four people — including the diplomat — ahead of President Bush''s visit to Pakistan.
Bush condemned the attack near the U.S. Consulate and a luxury hotel in Karachi, and said "terrorists and killers" would not prevent him from going to Pakistan on the final leg of his tour of South Asia.

Brave words indeed! Wonder why he is only in Pakistan for a few hours? A few reasons -
  • Can't cozy up too much with the Pakis while they are wooing India.
  • The fundie base in US might not like it too much
  • Frankly the place is not safe enough for Bush or a lot of Americans

A lesson anyone coddling fundamentalists (of any religion) should take from this is that the monsters created may not always behave as one may want them to. History is replete with examples of these.. When is this going to end?

Merely proof that "we must work to rid the world of terrorism."

Funny that when it really IS about him, he doesn't see it.

it will end when

1. we are ALL dead
2. people stop taking what their leaders tell them at face value. this applies to all groups

how many times do people have to be lied to by governments and religious leaders before they figure it out?

nice post.. even though i am a paki i completely agree!! those radical religious leaders are crazy.. Thats why i quoted that saying on my blog.. I think if everyone from all the religions calmed down a bit this world might be closer to peace.. See when people truly believe they believe in it blindy.. I cant do that.. i have to question everything!!
