Discussion on Benazir Bhutto and Musharraf

Daktar has come up with the ultimate conspiracy theory. Mr. Haqqani is writing all these comments against and in favor of himself to become important. Let Peace Reign is moral and, therefore, has all the insight. Too bad we don’t know who he is otherwise we could all annoint him our great leader and thinker.

C’mon guys and gals, we can do better than that. Let us get back to the debate over whether there is a deal or not and whether it is in the country’s interest or not. My father keeps telling me that blogging is for those who just want to voice opinions, not for those who want to exchange ideas in the hope of learning something and possibly changing their minds. Is he right?

Independent Citizen’s comments reflect the sad conspiracy theory mentality that has prevented Pakistanis and Muslims from being able to analyse and face realities. Many pakistanis want good relations with Pakistan not because they are paid by anyone but because they think it is in Pakistan’s interest.

Benazir Bhutto has won two elections and received millions of votes from Pakistanis. it is an insult to BB’s voters to accuse her of being an American stooge, implying that millions of Pakistanis vote for an American stooge.

Husain Haqqani is one of a few Pakistani scholars to have international recognition. He has never worked for RAND –a fact easily verified by a little reserach. But conspiracy theorists never do any research, do they?
