Benazir Bhutto's son launches political career in Pakistan
2012-12-27
In a rally before several hundred thousand supporters to mark the fifth anniversary of her assassination, the 24-year-old Oxford graduate formally launched his political career by vowing that the Bhuttos would never be silenced by violence.

He invoked his mother's memory at the family's mausoleum in Sindh's Garhi Khuda Bakhsh and laid claim to its blood-soaked legacy, saying: "Bhutto is an emotion, a love.

"Every challenge is soaked in blood, but you will be the loser. How ever many Bhuttos you kill, more Bhuttos will emerge from every house."

Although is too young to stand next year's elections himself - the minimum age is 25 - Mr Bhutto Zardari is expected to be a figurehead of the ruling Pakistan People's Party campaign in place of his father, President Asif Ali Zardari, who is barred from involvement.

In his speech on Thursday, he told supporters that he would continue his mother's fight against poverty and demanded to know why her murderers had not yet been brought to justice five years after her assassination.

#5  He shouldn't get a nickname, he'll be dead in a year with the way that family history has gone. I know it's insensitive of me, but the Bhuttos are the Kennedy's of Pakistan.

His mom was no slouch at supporting terrorism as well.
