What a leader!

Reader comment on item: Zulfi Bhutto of Pakistan: His Life and Times

Submitted by Dr. Saeed Yazdani (United States), Feb 10, 2007 at 18:11

Bhutto was the greatest leader we can think in the modern history. In his book "If I Am Assassinated", Bhutto clearly mentions his fear of 120 million Pakistanis under a defenseless sky in comparison to a nuclear India. What a vision! India could have swallowed Pakistan long ago if thanks to Bhutto we were not an atomic power.

On the economic front Bhutto vision for nationalization was that Pakistanis will work hard like Chinese, but here Pakistanis failed him. The labor and the management of nationalized industry had no interest to take advantage of this opportunity. Using this as a golden opportunity, the industrialists, bureaucrats, and above all our corrupt army declared him as an unsuccessful leader.
