Reading the news from Pakistan, I was amazed to find out that dictator-president Musharraf will replace his army hat with the classic Sherlock Holmes deerstalker hat, he will start smoking a pipe and occasionally will take cocaine - the original Sherlock did, but in Musharraf's case we can make an exception, since he can just sell it! However, the dictator-president has also decided to take over the investigation of Bhutto's assassination.

So now we know why the Americans cannot find the truth behind President’s Kennedy assassination and all these conspiracy theories that have been torturing us for decades. They should have appointed Lee Harvey Oswald responsible for the investigation and then we would have found out straight away what really happened. It's time to reject all the different theories in all the books and forgive all the innocent naïve men and women who, for no good reason, blamed J. Edgar Hoover, the sweet like a girl FBI director, because nothing really happened. If Lee Harvey Oswald had been appointed as the investigator we would all have found out within hours that the manufacturer of the car and the bad roof was responsible for J.F.K.'s death!!!

Of course, I’m joking, but how can I react when I read that Musharraf is taking over the investigation for the death of Benazir Bhutto, cleverly avoiding the word ‘assassination’, despite the fact that there is even a video well-distributed through the internet that clearly shows the move of her head and the man shooting her. It seems that among all the qualities good dictators need Musharraf is sharpening the one common to all dictators throughout history: stupidity!

Correctly, Benazir Bhutto’s family and the party members refused to let the government start their own autopsy because it wouldn’t surprise anybody if in the end they found out that she died because of …pneumonia. Correctly they said that if that would have happened they would like recognized experts to come from Britain and do it. Not that the British doctors are better educated but they are trusted and they don’t worry for their heads the day after they come up with something Musharraf and his gang don’t like - any result that would include assassination and bullets would definitely not be to their pleasure.

There are no good or bad dictators, Musharraf has long proved that he is a dangerous dictator but nowadays he has proved to be an idiot as well, yet he is an idiot with nuclear bombs. This is extremely worrying not only for his country and his neighbours but also for the whole world. Let's hope that the American administration has seen all that and regrets the mistakes they have done for so long supporting him.

It has been a long time since I wrote an article about Pakistan where I emphasized that the American administration is doing the same mistakes again. Saddam Hussein was a creation of an American administration; they gave him the weapons and the elements to become what he became. That American administration shares the guilt of Saddam’s crimes, he was their creation. George W. Bush is guilty for creating another Saddam, Musharraf is his name, so let’s see how we will get rid of him and how many poor Pakistanis it will take!

I agree with you that letting Musharraf head the investigation of Bhutto's assasination is like letting the fox guard the hen house. Thereby goes any real, objective investigation into this late woman's murder.

Even more under forebodding is the knowledge that he has under his control a somewhat vast nuclear arsenal.
