Bhutto slaying brings out the best in webmongery
Yesterday's tragic killing of Benazir Bhutto has brought out the best in the world of webmongery. They screamed, they howled - and no bugger did anything but roll their eyes at them. My favourite load of old wank came from Gimlet Kamm, who argued that her murder should not be used as an excuse to encourage "our indulgence" of Pakistan's military ruler any further.
OK, Gimlet, what's the plan? Let's say that Dictator Musharraf does cancel the elections - what will happen? Nothing will happen, that what. Nothing will happen because nothing can happen. Pakistan is too big and too well armed to invade.
The Pakistanis will sort out this mess on their own.
