Commentary: Pakistan: Favorable confusion

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- The much heralded Feb. 18 democratic election in Pakistan has brought still more confusion to a dysfunctional nuclear power. But there was a silver lining. The coalition of six politico-religious parties that governed two of Pakistan’s four provinces was defeated.

Commentary: Absurdistan?

WASHINGTON, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- There is a fresh and sordid postscript to Benazir Bhutto's assassination. Tainted by her husband Asif Ali Zardari's penchant for graft and corruption, Bhutto was twice fired as Prime Minister (1990 and 1996). Her closest friends now say she did not appoint Zardari to succeed her as party leader in case of death. The political testament Zardari read on television was his recent creation, not hers.
