Bhutto's slaying reflects on U.S. policy
Sunday, December 30, 2007
The US is reviewing its aid to Pakistan - about $10 billion in overt funding since 2001. Yet the Bush administration may push for continuing military aid for the Pakistani Army's counterinsurgency operations, says analyst Steve Coll of the New America Foundation. President Bush is nothing but the front man for the rich to keep control. He started out as their puppet, but puppets have a funny way of getting out of hand. So something very strange is happening in the world right now! This is why so many fascist takeovers happen. This is why Hitler, Mussolini, Franco and many others came to power. The rich are clever organizers who know how to engineer a military coup as the US did in Chile, Argentina, Central America and Venezuela.
