One More Assassination

I just found out that Benazir Bhutto has been assassinated (along with 20 other bystanders), just days before the elections that were supposed to bring back some kind of democracy to our neighboring country.

Another mega-crime for which we might never know who was really responsible, but many people will be punished anyway, directly and indirectly.

As a blogger said: Another horrible news for that region (i.e., South Asia).

So it goes. On and on.

I wasn’t exactly an admirer of Benazir Bhutto, but that doesn’t make the news any less horrible. In fact, for me it is particularly depressing since the events that were among the first to make me politically aware included the execution of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, along with the emergency in India, the 1977 elections and the death of Sanjay Gandhi in a plane crash (some say due to sabotage). Is the world really marching on the path of progress, or is it just moving in circles?

Is someone suggesting that South Asia has become an Assassination Super Power or the Assassination Capital of the world?
