Was the Bhutto assassination was an honor killing?

This blogger says yes. She feels insecure Muslim men whacked Bhutto because she was a woman getting too uppity. Maybe. But it makes more sense to think that Mrs Bhutto was killed to destabilize Pakistan, in the same way blowing up the Sammara mosque destabilized Iraq. Al Queda can convert Pakistan into a lawless failed state no man's land. All they have to do now is get rid of Musharraf.

I agree with you, Dstarr.

While it makes for a sensational headline to call Bhutto's assassination an "honor" killing, it bears few, if any, of the signs. After all, Bhutto was part of a family political dynasty in which there were already three other assassinations. . .all of them of men.
