Violence in Pakistan
Yesterday, Islamic extremists targeted former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto as she returned to Pakistan. They didn't get her, but they did kill over one hundred thirty-five other completely innocent people. Those killed and injured are, of course, in my thoughts and prayers.
While I don't want to sound like Michael Moore here*, I do think it is incredible that these terrorists have so little regard for human life. At least in Iraq, these have the bad excuse of knowing that they are killing people of the opposite sect. In Pakistan, for all they knew they could have been killing people who agreed with them about Bhutto. While the slaughter of innocents who disagree with you is monstrous, it does have historical precedent. But I can't think of any other group in history who staged protests by murdering dozens of completely random people.
* For those of you who may have forgotten, Michael Moore's response to 9/11 was to complain that Al-Qaida didn't target the right people, since New Yorkers didn't vote for Bush. Apparently, Moore thought that if they had targeted, say, Nevada, their attacks would have made sense.
