Bhutto's widower says West supported military not Pakistani people basically your typical scathy report of imperialist (and just plain dumb) American foreign policy. sure will be nice when President Obama puts a damper this losing foreign policy stategy. "Islamabad - The widower of slain ex-premier Benazir Bhutto on Tuesday blasted on the West, saying it had always invested in Pakistan's military and arms but not in its people, with the result of a rise of Islamic militancy and terrorism...when the war against Soviet Union was won, 'Pakistan and the country we liberated were abandoned to the forces of extremism and fanaticism.' US and other western countries supported Islamic Jihad resistance against Soviet Union in 1980s. The Kremlin retreated in late 1980s but the seminaries kept on producing holy warriors, which were the main forces behind Taliban movement in Afghanistan in mid 1990s and lately in Pakistan. Zardari said that Pakistan was now the Petrie dish of international terrorism that was a product of failed international politics and not its own creation. PPP formed the new, coalition government together with the allies, who jointly defeated the political backers of President Pervez Musharraf, a key US ally in the fight against terrorism. The new government revised Musharraf's 'hard-handed' policies against pro-Taliban militants active in restive tribal areas and parts of neighbouring North-West Frontier Province (NWFP), and offered them peace talks. The move raised concerns in Washington and other NATO countries who said the peace agreements Taliban elements would only give them opportunity to regroup and launch with attacks with more forces from tribal belt on international forces in Afghanistan as well as Pakistani security forces. But the government led by Zardari's party says that a comprehensive strategy is required to quell terrorism. It includes socio-economic development as well as limited and targeted use of force."
