General Pervez Musharraf's army surrounded Benazir Bhutto's house in Islamabad with barbed wire & concrete barriers, served her with a formal order of detention & began rounding up her supporters to prevent a rally against "emergency rule."

Another TYRANT at work - disallowing the free speech of dissent! I can so easilt imagine this happening in the US if/when BUSH declares martial law after another false-flag attack on American soil.

How sad that humans have lived on this earth for so long and still have not evolved into a species that choose to live in harmony with nature and to show love and compassion for all living things including our own species. Noted with sadness for our own future and the future of Mother Earth along with all her inhabitants.

Makes my head spin. When I watched the video on the news, I was watching women beating her.....I'm sorry, but the story doesn't fit what I was watching.

I don't think we got the the real story.......

According to NBC, she's out of detention.

Musharref is no better and no worse than your garden variety dictator. He's not even original in his moves. Makes you wonder how long ago he read Mein Kampf!

Noted, Cate, with what can only be called creeping numbness. If we could all just take 2 hours off without any breaking bad news what a gift it would be. Like you, this is a scenario that could play at here and it is ugly at best and menacing at worst. It really is a mad, mad, world!

Bu$h is funding These Terrorists! We can't wait til 2008!
Dennis in '08 - Kucinich is the true voice of the people!:
Kucinich has done this:
(1) co-sponsoring with Rep. John Conyers HR 676, a universal health plan;
(2) voting AGAINST the Patriot Act;
(3) voting AGAINST invading Iraq;
(4) promising to withdraw from the World Trade Organization and NAFTA, & standing opposed to weapons in space;
(5) voting against a flag-burning amendment;,
(6) advocating a 12-point plan to get our troops safely out of IRAQ;
(7) voting to cut off funds for prosecuting the Iraq war;
(8) urging the signing of the Kyoto Protocols to cut down on pollution;
(9) advocating education for all, from kindergarten through college;
(10) urging the creation of a Department of Peace,
(11) ending the phony "war on drugs”;
(12) urging renewal of the environment;
(13) sponsoring HR 333 to IMPEACH Vice President Dick Cheney; and
(14) abolishing the death penalty.
All of these positions favor the people over the wealthy and well-connected.

Shaking my head at the atrocities some people have to endure. May Ms. Bhutto and the many men and women who are rallying for freedom in Pakistan overcome General Pervez Musharraf’s regime.

I keep waiting to hear she's been killed. If she manages to live, I suspect at some future time, this woman will be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. She knows that every breathe could be her last, as do her supporters. Yet they continue on...

And so many Americans are apathetic aboutfreedoms they are losing. And do not even bother to participate in or seek information about elections held in their own country. They do not know how lucky they are to be able to be so lazy and uncaring.

I noted because I am totally and adamantly against dictatorships. However, I am not convinced by Ms. Bhutto - when she was president she was accused of rampant corruption - she looks to me like an opportunist.
