Benazir Bhutto, daughter of ex-PM Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, hanged by Dictator Zia-ul-Haq of Pakistan with the complicity of the United States, returns to Pakistan with the help of the US and claims her first victims.
The grip of the United States on Pakistani politics is in no doubt. The US has a similar grip in Latin American countries where it supported and still support, economically and militarily, dictatorial fascist regimes either through military coups or so-called ‘democratic elections’ where, like in Pakistan, leaders of opposition parties are exiled, their parties disbanded, demonstrations suppressed with brute force, political activists assassinated, and more. In Argentina , tens of thousands disappeared under US-backed fascist regimes [Ref. Torture, Murder, Bush, Kissinger and The Mothers of the Disappeared in Argentina on « Operation Condor », October 9, 2006 – Buenos Aires, Argentina]. Even pregnant mothers were abducted, allowed to give birth before being killed by the juntas, all with the complicity of the CIA and the Mossad, which organisations have always had close ties with and supported fascist regimes around the world, including Apartheid South Africa .
During the major part of its 60 years existence, military juntas backed by the CIA and the US Zionist-controlled administration have ruled over Pakistan . With the CIA’s complicity, Zia-ul-Haq, the ex-Pakistani fascist dictator, took power in a military coup in 1977, deposed the PM Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and hanged him in 1979 after a mock trial by judges who supported the dictator. Similarly, in 1999 the CIA backed the military coup by the fascist Pervez Musharraf against the PM Nawaz Sharif who was sent into exile to friendly Saudi Arabia .
The fugitive Benazir Bhutto
Benazir Bhutto was elected twice PM and twice deposed (1990 and 1996) by separate Pakistani Presidents on the grounds of corruption and widespread theft. The second suspension in 1996 was even confirmed by the Pakistan Supreme Court.
Ms Bhutto and her husband Asif Ali Zardari have been charged in a number of corruption cases relating to her time in power in the 1980s and 90s. Her husband fled to the US and Ms Bhutto fled to the UK (and Dubai ) where the acquiescing authorities claim she is in « self-imposed exile », which is entirely false because both Ms Bhutto and her husband fled from criminal charges.
A Pakistani court ruled that Ms Bhutto and her husband were fugitives from justice because they had failed to appear in court to answer corruption charges. In one case, Ms Bhutto was even sentenced to three years imprisonment for failure to appear.Interpol has issued notices for the arrest of ex-Pakistan PM Benazir Bhutto and her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, as they are also wanted in Switzerland on corruption charges.
The corrupt Benazir Bhutto
Ms Bhutto is very well aware that the US is behind the hanging of her own Father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto [Ref. Tariq Ali], as the European-Americans were supporting Dictator Zia-ul-Haq at the time. Her decision to return to Pakistan to support the beleaguered fascist dictator Pervez Musharraf with the backing of the US and other European countries is inexcusable and can only demonstrate her corrupt predisposition as she is prepared to walk all over her Father’s dead body by siding with the accomplices to his murder. In her television appearances in Europe , Ms Bhutto avers her determination to return to Pakistan to eliminate ‘terrorists’ and ‘extremists’ when she has been in bed with European terrorists and extremists who harboured her and her husband as fugitives during the past eight years. She claims to espouse European secularism which she intends to implant in Pakistan , but as soon as she lands in Pakistan she is brandishing her rosary beads (the tasbi) to show Pakistanis what a devout Muslim she is. By her own actions, Benazir Bhutto shows that she is corrupt to the core.
Return paved with blood
Therefore, it is not a surprise that Ms Bhutto’s return to Pakistan on 18th October 2007 was marked by alleged kamikaze bombings and ‘assassination’ attempts against her as she claims her first victims (over 140) amongst the Pakistani population while she ‘escapes’ unhurt. Even before her arrival in Karachi , Ms Bhutto says she knew there would be such attacks and that she even warned the Pakistani authorities with names, but did not explain how she came to know about all this when still a fugitive in Europe and Dubai . Amongst such bloody carnage, Ms Bhutto even had time to speak to AP Television News to contradictorily say, on the one hand, that she had more to fear from members of the Pakistani power structure and, on the other hand, she “blamed al-Qaida and Taliban militants for the assassination attempt against her, and vowed she was ready to risk her life to restore democracy to her troubled homeland”, a homeland that she describes, like her European backers, as a « hotbed of international terrorism » when Europe (including USA and Israel) is the real source of terror with their hundreds of terrorists bases around the world. Clearly, such words can only come from a traitor and certainly not a patriot.
Very soon after the killings of Pakistanis, the authorities swiftly released (on 20th Oct 07) the photograph of the ‘rescued’ head of an alleged kamikaze bomber to deviate attention from any suspicion on them. Rajiv Gandhi’s head was rescued after a Tamil Tiger kamikaze attack, but he was not a ‘suicide bomber’ himself. A spokesman for Baitullah Mehsud, a top commander on the Pakistan-Afghan Frontier denied any involvement by the Talibans and pro-Taliban movements and puts the blame squarely on the Pakistani government’s secret agencies which also deny the charge.
Despite her flirt with Pervez Musharraf, the latter’s European masters are very well aware that his days are numbered as, like Saddam Hussain, he has become a liability to their ‘War on Muslims’ which they recently call ‘War on Terror’. The Europeans are backing Ms Bhutto over twice ex-PM Nawaz Sharif, whose deportation from his own country they recently arranged with the complicity of Saudi Arabia , because they know her democratic disposition for corruption and hunger for power like Latin American dictators. They feel that, in the circumstances, Ms Bhutto can, on Pakistani blood, install a European-style secular and fascist democracy like in occupied Iraq , Afghanistan and Palestine ( Israel ).
Musharraf knows that he has become expendable and, given that upon her return to Pakistan Ms Bhutto is under the ‘protection’ of his army, it is all too easy, according to some analysts, to stage a failed ‘assassination attempt’ in order to ensure a rapprochement between the two pro-European Pakistani politicians hence ensuring their survival and then blame it on pro-Taliban so-called ‘extremists’ and ‘terrorists’. The Observer, 21st October 2007 , also makes the following analysis : « The terror outrage could strengthen ties between Benazir and General Pervez Musharraf », reports Declan Walsh in Karachi .
Benazir Bhutto should not be seen as any different from dictator Pervez Musharraf as they both take their orders from their European masters and bent upon repressing their own people through fascist measures. Pakistanis reject military dictatorships and European fascist democracies equally as they are financed by and for the interests of capitalists and both breed corruption with all their decadent vices. Pakistanis want the instauration of the khilafah (Caliphate) which they believe is the only system which will give them justice, eliminate corruption and make them better prepared to defend themselves against European terrorism, which is today’s reality.
