Ex prime minister Nawaz Sharif calls for Mushariff's resignation
Looks like we're having another historical moment. Benazir Bhutto was loved by her countrymen and is now a martyr for the cause of Democracy. Her bravery in the face of danger will be remembered forever by the people of Pakistan. Earlier in the day her friend, Nawaz Sharif, who was also an ex prime minister, was under attack at the Islamabad airport when gunfire interrupted a rally killing four people.
Musharraf will probably have to step down because Bu$hco will now have a rough time covering for him. Unfortunately the upcoming election will now probably look like the ones that we have seen in Iraq and sadly the chances of a viable candidate winning the election will be about the same as for a one legged man in an arse kicking contest.
