Quote Of The Day: A Little Bhutt-o-Kicking Edition

General Musharraf also presented the democratic world — and especially the countries of the West — with a question. Will they back up their democratic rhetoric with concrete action, or will they once again back down in the face of his bluff?
-- Benazir Bhutto

The quote is from an excellent, powerful op/ed by Bhutto in the New York Times. Do read the whole thing. Echoing President Bush's excellent post-9/11 speech, she concludes:
It is dangerous to stand up to a military dictatorship, but more dangerous not to. The moment has come for the Western democracies to show us in their actions, and not just in their rhetoric, which side they are on.
