But to do and die

Posted by Ron Coleman on December 28, 2007

Charge of the Light BrigadeNeo-neocon:

The big news today seems to hardly be news at all. Like a tragic play you watch anyway, knowing it will not end well, Benazir Bhutto’s assassination—once by shooting and again by bombing, just to make certain—almost seems to have been an inevitability. . . .Whatever you may think of Bhutto’s politics (my recent take is here), it’s impossible to argue with her bravery.

That seems to hit just about the right notes.

    Agreed.

    P.S. Is it just me or does the story of the gun-wielding suicide bomber sound…unusual? I think that’s the first time I’ve ever heard of that kind of attack.

  2. I have my own little theory, Ara.

    I believe he was told to put on a vest in case he was in danger of being captured. And I think after he fired the shots, the bastards blew him up remotely. Clean, no?

    Call me “first,” though I doubt I am.
