Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That is very relevant to the US-Bhutto connection.  Bhutto was to be the political enabler, making the official invitation, while the Pentagon was already planning to send the US troops in.  

This is an escalation of degree that goes far beyond the previous US air-attacks on the country.  

It also means the US was going to knife Musharraf in the back, once Bhutto was in.  Maybe he saw it coming.   Maybe others saw it to.  I can see the list of people who wanted Bhutto dead growing by the hour.    

Meanwhile:  A serious setback to US policy:  Who can they get now to invite US troops into the country?  

Maybe they will just go in anyway.  

But this is going to cost.  In more ways than one.  

The Fates are kind.
