Bomb in Pakistan Planted by Insurgents?

A car bomb killed 20 in Islamabad right outside of the Marriot Hotel in what was, up to this point, considered the safest area of the city. They think that it may have something to do with the airstrikes. What does this mean for our relationship with Pakistan and does it have any bearing on our election?

    Once again the we try and draw Pakistan into the

    mix. Al Quida has had this country in there back pocket since the

    Russian invasion of Afghanistan. The Buzz word at that time was

    just Islamic extremist. Bin Laden has been given if still alive safe

    haven in this country. More training of Radical Islam is done in this

    country than anywhere else. The true problem is the fact that this

    country has the Nukes. And the ability to launch them. This in the

    hands of the extremist is not what the world or that region needs,

    I have been in that region. Understand well the role the Pakistanis

    play. They are a ripe piece of fruit waiting for the picking. We need

    to prepare for the eventuality,

    I find it a bit funny that the Terrorists attacked only after the Pakistanis moved to get rid of the USA supported dictator Pervez Musharraf.

    I also find it sort of weird that their targets included Bhutto who wanted to open negotiations with the Iranians to build a gas pipeline into India.

    A Pipeline that would compete with the one Bush wants to run from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and Pakistan into India.

    Bush is hoping to enable Martial law, which he will then be able to invade any area which is being considered as a threat to the United States, its people, and its interests.

    Pakistan is controlled by al Queda. Who cares if they destroy their country?

    I don't think it's that big of an issue.
