West’s Double Standard

The brutal assault on the convoy of Benazir Bhutto is reprehensible in strongest terms. Normal wisdom in the present international milieu would suggest that it could be a vile stratagem played by the West and throw the blame on the Al-Qaida and Taliban outfits.

The brutal assault on the convoy of Benazir Bhutto is reprehensible in strongest terms. Normal wisdom in the present international milieu would suggest that it could be a vile stratagem played by the West and throw the blame on the Al-Qaida and Taliban outfits. For Washington, there will be no better stooge at the helm in Pakistan than Parvez Musharraf.  Despite her western leaning, Benazir could never match the “yes-man” stooping of the General, who hunted down thousands of his countrymen at His Master’s Voice.  So, the double standard of the West is at work.  While Mr. Bush fumes at the events happening in Myanmar and wants democracy to take the seat there, he is pretty happy with the military rule in Pakistan.
