political dementia

political dementia
Political dementia...everyone in the sharif family has different views about the Avenfield apartments..Nawaz Sharifs wife says they bought them for their childrens education...Hussein Nawaz says they were given to them by the Qataris alongwith loans...Nawaz Sharif says he does not know but they rented them in the 1990's...Maryam says actually she is just a trustee and hussein owns the flats...they also suggest that the fifth flat was sold to pay for shabaz and nawaz sharifs expenses...! shifty capt.Safdar says he does not know whether he signed the trustee document or someone else did...however at best the beneficial owner is supposedly Maryam Nawaz aka Maryam Safdar...!!!...army chief wants trucks for CPEC and mullah fazlurrehman says it is propaganda against CPEC...?while javed hashmi wants to know when there will be accountability of generals...!

the scowler

the scowler
the scowler--Nawaz Sharif is always in a bad mood...and the howler that he crafted...the judges at least gave him enough for a crooked smile at shahbaz sharif

Mario Puzo...

Mario Puzo...
Marlon Brando still running away from facts...Asif Khoso should realize that theoretically the italian gangsters did not succeed as the FBI ran them into the ground and most gangsters were killed by their opponents...while the systems that they ran like gambling, prostitution and street protections were eventually legalized and the police became dominant..while a couple of mafiosi did get to run or become vice presidents in the USA the mafia was generally kept out of politics barring the local scene where prosecution attorneys and senators could be bought and sold...!nowhere has the military asked tobe involved in criminal investigations and the judiciary...The sindh example shows a complete failure of the JIT's when having to deal with upper level politicians or mafioso like altaf hussein...

military justice

military justice
The lillyputian PTI and PMLn who cannot standup against the army chief who wants tobe the CJ for terrorists...many suggest that other candidates for the army chief were dropped after they refused to endorse military courts...The current army chief too was considered opposed to army courts

prayers for those who are the eternal targets ...the people

prayers for those who are the eternal targets ...the people
children from a charity pray for the victims of terror...

the counter american

the counter american
The US has always been considered on the right path...but how can a upside down USA president be considered right...the multan metro is just added as a joke...!

the army chief who refuse to go away...!

the army chief who refuse to go away...!
the army chief who refuses to disappear...the army chief of islam...!Raheel Shareef has done an about turn and become the head of the Islamic Military Alliance...he had his first major dispute with Nawaz Sharif when as Army Chief he apparently refused to go to the aid of Saudia in yemen...he also refused to help out the than newly formed IMA even though its first objective was eliminating terrorism...something that can mean many things...he might have to pick up Nawaz Sharif when teh pakistanis get rid of him...! ...Dubbed the islamic nato it has a long way to go before it can setup military bases or invade another islamic country...just developing say a rudimentary airforce or forcing a terrible ruler to go away are some of the things he might have to do...other things that are more easier is advize on how to handle terrorism or destabilize a failed state...he has sufficient experience for that... whether he can handle a country that does not speak his language will probably be the test...!!

foreign policy

foreign policy
nawaz sharifs foreign policy...letter likhwao and let'm hunt some rare birds...maybe Trump and Obama will turn turtle if u let em hunt the rare birds too...and probably hu jintao and modi will probably run across to hunt birds too...!!!apparently Qatari's paid by punjab government with rare camels and buffalo's...!

a sage

a sage
Junaid Jamshed had studied mechanical engineering at the UET and was a pindi boy...i just learned belatedly he had some pukhtun roots...anyway he has been all over the place...a pop singer turned tableeghi...became famous in both roles...turned bussinessman...at home singing popular songs and naats as well as urging karachiites to clean the city...a true sage i must say...he went down smiling as his tableegh took him to chitral...The ATR could not handle it...its engine burst and a wing broke off...nothing the pilot could do...rumours about why a kakul major general was promoted...!! The PIA chairman seemed innocuos and unfit for his job...if the plane was fit than these things should not have happened...

a possible 2018 primeminister

a possible 2018 primeminister
even though he is not going tobe 45 years old the age required for a primeminister...!...!generally i regard Bilawal Zardari as a joker...he says that he will be primeminister in 2018...in that case he should start making speeches on serious matters that worry primeministers...i have here a selfie with Paris hilton...i suppose sindhi girls dont make him smile...!

The new and old

The new and old
The new and old...General Qamar Javed Bajwa...a rural from Gujranwala the general has been spending time in Rawalpindi waiting for his appointment...he superceded probably more favourable candidates and has the reccomendations of an indian army chief having served with him in Congo...has experience of Siachen and the LOC as well as murree, rawalpindi and islamabad and has almost assiduously avoided the western border wars...other aspirants had more experience fighting the war on terror...this the second time in a row that Nawaz Sharif has appointed the DG(inspection training and evaluation) as army chief...he probably has more experience of running the militaries schools rather than war...

the chinese juggernaut

the chinese juggernaut
chinese after big and small fish...trying to catch fish in rawal dam...the chinese seem tobe after our electricity production after the purchase of K-Electric...while electricity is cheaper in china it remains tobe seen if the chinese can reduce prices here

the kashmiris

the kashmiris
subjugated under the indian yolk with a weak frightened pakistan looking on the kashmiris have no other option but to fight

internal security

internal security
PMLn they say is not worried about internal security in pakistan but is palpably frightened of Hafiz Saeed frightening india...according to the Dawn's cyril almeida Nawaz Sharif threatened the army to control those who threaten india...hafiz saeed and mullah azhar in thenselves are innocuous beings and can hardly even organize anything to worry india...india has to control its own internal proplems itself and pakistan can not do it for them...this is a cartoon from teh economist depicting the syrian situation which is similar to discussions in pakistans internal security apparatus...which consists of teh direct army and ISI while teh punjab government relies on staged puls muqabila's

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived
altaf hussein given his trouble driven mentality again ordered riots in karachi and issued rash statements worse than achakzai's(perhaps) against the country given his indian driven nature...however farook sattar after consultations in jail said go to hell and took over the mqm in pakistan...usually unable to get together apart from under an altaf photo the mqm wala's agreed that altaf hussein was now history...if he had been brave and come back to face whatever music he would have have been the adored fat leader...but an end has to come and after money laundering, murder and other charges he was no longer the hero but a troubled fat man in england wanting just trouble to sustain himself ...maybe the mohajirs have finally arrived in pakistan...!!! just maybe...known as the uncontrolled troublemakers for decades they might finally have come home to roost..ending their long trek from indian slavery to being upright pakistanis whether sindhis or not...!...poor or rich...!

ethics

ethics
Pakistan armies senior officers have a low sense of propriety and ethics when it comes to land grabbing...why they are trying to grab qayyumabad's amenity plots is beyond understanding...qayumabad's amenity plots seem to have become a truck adda

flag waving

flag waving
flag waving will give us the confidence...pakistanis are so frightened of their lilliputian army failing to defend them that they more and more depend on the propaganda of flags to suggest that they like their country at least for a day...the only people protected in this country are the fauj, politicians,judges and beaurocrats...the rest are at the mercy of terrorists...!u will notice that even teh clock is surrounded by barbed wire...initially only teh american embassy was surrounded by barbed wire...than intelligence offices...now houses and schools too are surrounded by barbed wire...!

the chinese

the chinese
for the pakistanis the chinese were initially revered for providing us MIG-19's but now that they are after our jobs and our power plants many feel unnerved at a future where the chinese will have jobs and the baloch will just be looking on...u will need more than a hello and hi there than...!

bluntly corrupt

bluntly corrupt
The corrupt in pakistan...the thieves, criminals have more bravado, bluntness and can standup to the police , NAB, FIA as compared to the novice Imran Khan...one wonders who is the dupe...Raheel shareef or the people...as the jordanian crown prince said to him..."do u think u can really take on the israeli's or even the indians"...after almost ten years of fighting the fledgling taleban raheel shareef could only smile...!!

muk muka

muk muka
muk muka refers to police corruption...the PPP's zardari and even imran khan have already done their muk muka's with the rurals of raiwind...now coup plotters and article 6 accused too are doing it...is our judiciary really that dumb...maybe Ayyan Ali should have accompanied musharaf...actually he is just gone to get his HBL profits from the agha khan...!will be back after getting his spine repaired...! our doctors are so inept...?

attitude and wrong impressions

attitude and wrong impressions
wrong attitude and wrong impressions...what do u read in afridi's slumped shoulders and subjugated attitude..."u indians are so nice really i can play IPL too"...the army chief also seems tobe saying "if u are with me than go sit with your ministers Nawaz"...?

and in the Us

and in the Us
republicans move towards riots on the streets says the trigger happy trump...

syria...

syria...
god save us from the superpowers and the IS

who is teh problem...!

who is teh problem...!
Nawaz Sharif and General Raheel glowering at each other...both blaming each other for the fiasco in aiding the saudi's...the saudi's almost in dialogue mode with even the Houthis telling the iranians to butt out...

raheel shareef

raheel shareef
Raheel Shareef...!indispensable or a great general he is not...! however Asif Zardari suggests that he should decide/retire in October...tongue in cheek and not trouble the PPP too much...mqm however suggest that they are willing to cooperate in all non mqm criminal activities...!! PPP workers say that is not their view at all

corruption Inc...

corruption Inc...
Corruption Inc....while Nawaz Sharif gets his corruption payments from overseas as do the zardari's he is trying to assure asif zardari to come back...despite his involvements in terrorism and corruption...

the interiors funny side

the interiors funny side
the fledgling minister of interior is a funny character...little power but big on words

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

PIA
PIA now has 1101 employees per plane a high never before experienced...an old PIA employee suggested that they have so many employees that they could fly/handle over a hundred planes..with oil prices down 30% PIA was at last profitable and Nawaz Sharif tried to make a quick buck like musharaf who ran away with the proceeds of PTCL and HBL...! however the employees a well paid and well fed horde said nothing doing...will the country benefit from privatisation we dont think so...the status quo also is no use to the people...so the government told airblue to start bringing on extra planes as the strike worsened...airblue owner is a federal minister and the PPP or mqm would both like the Rangers image hurt...the PIA unions are run by various political groups...!!!

current politics

current politics
pakistans current political policy...the SC, PPP and the army chief think alike...!!!

NSA

NSA
after Nawaz Sharif's pro hindu-houthi-shiite policies unnerved the army they took over the national security advisorship

extreme soceity

extreme soceity
india is an extreme one sided hindu soceity unable to tolerate other religions or even opinions..the modi support group shiv sena blackens a member of the extremist BJP for supporting a book.....india despite having 30% minorities only has a few minority members of parliament and recently also killed a muslim on just the suspicion of eating beef...

problems for the rich in pakistan

problems for the rich in pakistan
The Army and Rangers are trying to contain ethnic terrorism in karachi and taleban/ sectarianism thru financial choking...while seminaries are generally dependent on friday collections,hides,zakat,fitrana and some arab donations the ethnic groups sindhi, mohajir and baloch have a more varied international collection routine...the real terrorists in Fata donot seem to have any monetary problems...private schools and terrorism are the biggest risks that are felt by the rich in pakistan...security guards, bullet proof vehicles and high fees drain some people's reserves...private school fees are so high that nobody from the low-middle income group can even think of them...even the army charges civilians high fees while faujis get thru free in military run institutions...very few top notch students however emerge from the private and army schools as the majority are dependent on poorly run government schools...

the new justice system

the new justice system
the new tarazoo designed by Justice Nasir ul Mulk...in previous era's it was unthinkable ...but in Nawaz Sharifs convoluted mind anything goes

the fauj

the fauj
people seem extraordinarily frightened of anti army comments...most people restrict themselves to "we love the army' apart from the mqm and altaf hussein who hate the army...while most officers are theoretically properly trained they have a love tobe in the administration which frightens mostly politicians...so an anti army statement gets a barrage of criticism...as everyone knows a coup just requires a brigadier to go and takeover the primeministers office and residence...while raheel sharif does not look coup material the way ex faujis talk him up everyone keeps getting alarmed...we might however soon be rid of the mqm riff raff..altaf to go on a hunger strike and their top militant leaders have gone underground...so even if the army takes over there will be a new mqm...at least...!

iran...!

iran...!
the islamic revolution is over...!

what kashmiri's can expect...!

what kashmiri's can expect...!
pakistanis dont expect much as everything in this country is looted by the army, beaurocrats and politicians including free medical treatment...a pakistani can only expect free treatments if he is injured by a terrorists blast or bullet...so the kashmiris who now have to act as mediator rather than victim and get ruled by the BJP cant expect more than the pakistanis'''

Pakistans history...on indian relations

Pakistans history...on indian relations
The 1965 war resulted after the indians reneged on an agreement on kashmir arrived at in the swaran singh-bhutto 1964 talks...some call it teh chenab solution.....others say that the USA told pakistan to occupy as much land as possible...In 1965 a conventional war was possible with pakistan considered to have an edge in teh air over indian gnats/hunters to our sabres and F-104's...however the indians took a lot of territory in sindh and punjab..as yahya khan took over the fighting in kashmir and literally stopped the momentum...pakistan ran out of ammunition in just seventeen days........pakistan occupied important kashmir territory but gave it back at tashkent leading to ayub-bhutto differences which led to teh seperation of east pakistan and initiation of constitutional rule in pakistan..tashkent,simla and later agreements led to teh sidelining of kashmir and institutionalizing indian regional hegemony with no real solutions... which has led to trade being more important than kashmir as pakistani leaders backout of forcefully supporting kashmir...many suggest that the appeasement lobby aims to trade concessions on kashmir for money eventually(joke)..!!...ie if teh PPP economy ever improves...the PPP handling of teh economy has been its worst feature many say...PPP economic measures consist of raising electricity prices every month and saying we are passing thru difficult times...

The Daily Pakistanpolitics 01-10 June, 2011

  • June11-2011--The army which is only used to onesided diatribes against politicians and LEA's is coming in for increasing criticism...many see their handling of the afghan dispute and related problems such as the CIA,taleban, terrorism and drones as pathetic...others suggest that the top CIA agents in pakistan maybe the duo of K and P...Nawaz sharif suggested that the army change its mindset of being a holy cow...he suggested that the army end its domination of foreign policy and there should be no parallel government of agencies...he blamed kashmir on the army too..hina jilani, jugnoo mohsin also critisized the armies attitude...people generally think that the armed forces seem incapable of handling their responsibilities...tehmina daultana also took umbrage at the army corp commanders haughty attitude and said that if pasha had any intellect he would have resigned...many suggest that the PPP's recent coalition partners seem ISI ordained too...!!
  • June11-2011--The rangers might have been guilty of some indiscipline and mishandling but the SC in a display of its highhandedness and pique ordered the transfer of the IG and DG rangers sindh...who theoretically donot seem tobe guilty..The SC CJ seems tobe a bit unfit for his job too if the only way he can deal with a beaurocracy is to fire people from their jobs...he has not cited any law in ordering the removal of teh IG and DG rangers...that is an executive duty and there is no law under which the SC can remove people from their jobs or transfer them......anyway one of the rangers used a pistol that was apparently that of the victim and it seemed to go off inadvertently... shooting a suspect in the leg is justified if he does not follow orders and behaves as if he is going to cause trouble...Cant the SC suo moto the taleban and US ambassador...?given the countries strange circumstances the national assembly and the SC are using whatever comes their way to distract from a terrible government and budget...The courts at least should behave sensibly but they too are attempting to politicize a judiciary which seems at best unable to deal with most situations...The SC too seems to think that it is not teh Rangers job to police karachi and it is necessary that the rangers be withdrawn and teh police and politicians start to do their real job...when u put the rangers into a policing situation with the threats of terrorism and suicide bombings than such things will happen...policing has tobe done without the gun tobe effective...but when u see nobody being brought to justice for the last twenty years of mayhem in karachi where non judicial eliminations have been the norm...
  • June10-2011--100 militants attack a checkpost in south waziristan killing eight soldiers..10 trrorists killed
  • June10-2011--In a mastung blast two levies persoonel killed..
  • June10-2011--four killed as bomb eexplodes in matni bazaar, peshawar
  • June10-2011--The corp commanders have turned into a Gilani...they have at best turned into a cocoon who are unable to deal with the situation in the region and are becoming increasingly isolated in the country...just look at this...we oppose drone attacks...intelligence sharing on only a reciprocal basis...only received $8.6 billion in coalition support funds of expected $13 billion and army only got $1.4 billion of that...refuse to start an operation in north waziristan..will rely on loyal tribesmen.....everybody should be quite as a mouse and not slander army...the generals also took a step backward from openly supporting their proteges...ie the gilani-zardari axis of the PPP...The generals refused to acknowledge the public perception that the army is weak and unable to deal with attacks from india, afghanistan and even some say russia and the USA(taleban and al qaeda)...obviously an armed forces cannot rely on words alone and have to move forward and attack bases in india and afghanistan...drone attacks wont stop if they wont stop them entering pakistan...and apparently americans in pakistan only to train pakistanis in new equipment...hav'nt heard of any specific hard to use military machines...why cant they get a few soldiers trained in the USA and who can than carry on the job in pakistan rather than create a deliberate confusing and unbalanced security situation...
  • June10-2011--In karachi a guy the usual mqm killer/dacoit type...is looting women's purses in a park the rangers are told...they apprehend an armed man face covered by a red handkerchief but handle him sloppily and he starts to act up and gets shot in the leg...and dies of over bleeding...just a minor matter of not rushing him to hospital...the whole national assembly up in arms...
  • June10-2011--Gilani seems to claim that people should not make fun of teh sindh rangers as they are an institution just caught executing a minor thief...and someone in the NA referred them as "riasati badmash"(some say that refers to Gilani and zardari and kiani who are the actual rulers and not the national assembly)?...although one has to admit that there would be no karachi, fata or balochistan in pakistan by now without their highhandedness...!!Gilani also indirectly accused himself, the army chiefs and khawaja asif of teh PMLn of making fun of the armed forces against teh constitution......three years of drone attacks and Gilani continues too insist that he is trying to convince teh americans to stop them...when a country as unit is slapped in the face and than quibbles about reactions and commissions than who is making fun of teh institutions..is it the armed forces themselves...The ISI/rehman malik/mqm can get rid of zia era PPP hijackers and taleban journalists but cannot mount an effective intelligence operation to get rid of terrorists...rehman malik makes fun of institutions by suggesting that the terrorists are animals...who the FC, interior ministry and armed forces cannot get rid off...animals should be easy prey for a 500 billion armed force..which also they say rips of another 100 billion of state funds by refusing to pay taxes and report earnings...!!...one thinks...and the SC why cant it take suo moto notice of teh abbottabad attack but can of two bottles of liquor...one wonders who is making fun of whom...and on top of it Kiani offers all foreign military aid tobe used for the people...not a single program in the budget is directed at the people...?
  • June09-2011--Amin Fahim rips of Sindh Workers fund of 41 million and says my office manager handles such stuff..?
  • June09-2011--PPP stops Nawaz Sharif from going to balochistan delaying his plane by upto three hours...?
  • June09-2011--Gilani called Hilary and told her bluntly that she had agreed to carry out consultations on drone attacks...she said oh i forgot...u know we do and than talk..talk to me after the next drone attack...?a drone attack kills 24 in teh shawal mountains...an inaccessible place for the brave armed forces...
  • June09-2011--rangers caught executing a minor thief who would not stay still...others say he was a participant in the mehran airbase raid...
  • June08-2011--most pakistanis agree with ahmedinajad(whose name seems to mean that mahmood was an ahmedi) that the US wants to takeover pakistans nuclear facilities and that it shows an unnecessary interest in our nuclear program...one often feels that they would like to takeover pakistan too like afghanistan and cannot wait for an opportune time...one doubts the american viewpoint that taleban leaders in pakistan could order targeted attacks at distances of thousands of kilometers in afghanistan.You need local fighters and local know how to fight in afghanistan
  • June08-2011--seven nato oil tankers destroyed due to a blast near torkham
  • June08-2011--visuals of the killing of russians in kharotabad suggest that the firing was undertaken without proper ascertaining of facts even though the russians seemed tobe inside a security post... a woman killed seemed to show a victory sign while no evidence has been found of a blast...it was just as if teh police and FC were carrying out an execution...
  • June08-2011--The senate opposition leaders appointment continued to show the PPP's lack of understanding of politics and democracy as the senators of the opposition walked out
  • June08-2011--The armed forces has started to annoy a lot of people who think they can only talk and not fight anymore...case in point khawaja asif who accused the military leadership of protecting their jobs more than being blunt...in fact he said that they were openly scratching teh failed political leaderships back..he said that the cause was an unholy convergence of interests on promoting american interests...he questioned the expensive lifestyles of the military leaderships comparing them to emperors going to war on palanquins...he said that chiefs of staff who travel in cars worth 8 crore cannot fight referring probably to the naval chief arriving to fight in the mehran naval airbase attack in a BMW...our more fighting terrorist leaders prefer to travel on american humvees...and mixing up grenade throwers with rocket launchers...!!!like the PPP regime these chiefs of staff are also more interested in their own personal security and have blocked of at least three or four roads in rawalpindi cantonment...most people refer to the PPP's budget as hairaphairy...PPP has shown that it is irresponsible in budget making with a 46% deficit mostly attributable to the highly irresponsible extravagant provincial allocations...most people expect a printing of new notes to teh extent of 300-400 billion
  • June08-2011--reports suggest that the firing on the american and chinese experts as they escaped from the attack on the mehran naval base was probably done by naval employees...those naval employees have since not been seen...what many ask were the chinese doing there and there is many say a remote possibility that the americans were actually the ones who raided abbottabad as well...?
  • June08-2011--According to dawn tv teh ISI or police or IB or MI has had the telephone record of saleem shezad deleted after May12 and his brother is moving pillar and post to have the murder FIR canceled...!!!
  • June08-2011--According to rehman malik the taleban are his enemies and among other characterizations he called them non muslims and animals and zalim and lackin sense...the country should not be made to suffer day in and day out and rehman malik should be immediately replaced to calm down the taleban...egging on violence prone organizations can only be teh work of a madman...mostly used to white collar crime in teh FIA rehman malik has shown a complete inability to handle, tame or defeat the taleban...and obviously saying mazimat ki seems to be of no use either...whether attributed to the seemingly powerless gilani(cant handle taleban, americans, army or ISI..?)or zardari or altaf hussein(no angel either)
  • June08-2011--Shahid afridi these days is paying for his crimes in selling teh worldcup match to india..whoever he talks to these days says "sada million paunch jana chaida eh afridi..."(that could be in sindhi, urdu, punjabi or pushto)"that might not be nawaz sharif but we obviously differ from nawaz sharifs viewpoints on the afridi captaincy...obviously having public support does not prove that afridi has been correct or wrong in his attitude...getting to the semifinal and than throwing the semi final is no real credit and as usual afridi did not bat that well either...it is teh job of the PCB to discipline cricketers and teh courts and politicians should let them do that...a player should be allowed to go to court only after a final decision...creating a public fuss almost proves afridi's guilt...many suggest that afridi is now an indian agent and is going around asking how they want to recieve their payments...are bilawal bhutto and nawaz sharif and ishrat ul ibad indian agents too many ask...??
  • Jun07-2011--Shahid Afridi kicked out as captain in limited overs cricket goes haywire and starts a sort of political movement for his own survival...known best for his pathetic handling of teh world cup match against india which many say he had literally sold for a huge amount...many regard him as a pathetic batsman with an average in teh low twenties and who cannot play according to the situation...he also seems unable to get along with many coaches and managers...others suggest he is a failure as a captain and since terrorism cant be controlled no point in keeping on a pathetic tribal as captain...
  • Jun07-2011--three drone attacks kill 17 in south waziristan
  • Jun07-2011--pakistan politics went into a deep turn for the worse as politicians started to hedge and avoid critcising the budget and government for various motives as most governments seem to be in a minority state...The ANP for teh first time registered its anger at the PPP's pathetic chaplusi attitude of accepting whatever is done by the MQM...In teh senate a ten seat party leader was made opposition leader splitting the opposition and the PPP agreed to sit mutely in the punjab assembly...while teh mqm's chief killers became friends again as the MQM called teh ANP worse than teh taleban in terrorism...one obviously would not give any awards to the mqm for its role in the terrorism and murder bussiness...
  • Jun07-2011--A discussion on Dawn on intelligence cooperation and joint operations shows that we are almost a subjugated people...this points directly to the musharaf-PPP policy of taking US aid in exchange for killing our own objectives and people..we should realize that the afghan war is over...and no independent trained armed force works under another countries combat command...even allies in iraq and afghanistan work seperately in seperate areas...we should also tell the US this is our own country and we do want it tobe invaded, semi occupied or over run by US agents and marines for whatever purpose...if we go by history the US has never fought any war against terrorism and obviously are not as experienced as our own armed forces which have been continuously fighting such forces in one way or the other...intelligence cooperation obviously means embarassing our supposedly experienced ISI and army chief and than making them obey whatever the US says...teh differences in perceptions and real intelligence is also quite apparent between the US and pakistan as well as india and afghanistan...the almost daily drone attacks some seemingly mounted on remote haciendas probably just for fun since teh pakistanis are almost totally subdued...if teh drone attacks do not stop than there is only one way to go about it and the pathetic Gilani is obviously not teh right man for the job...i refer to drone attacks as continuous slaps on the Gilani face...if someone were to do that for each drone attack he would surely do something about them...many feel that we should do whatever we want too if the US does not stop killing people just on the off chance of netting some supposed taleban or alqaeda leader
  • Jun06-2011--In a major resurgence of terrorism after the drone attack on the Harkat jihad al islami a suicide attack on an army run bakery in nowshera cantonment kills 18...
  • Jun06-2011--blast in passenger van kills five in peshawar bazaar...
  • Jun06-2011--bank building blows in gujranwala killing three...suspicious natured gas blast blamed
  • Jun05-2011--posh non tax paying peopel had better run for their lives as The FBR plans to tackle 700000 rich people to get them into the tax net forcibly...The FBR has a wrong method to calculate income as wealth cannot be taxed and they should before doing anything ask a person his sources of income...
  • Jun05-2011--reports from naval sources suggest that at least eight people got away after attacking the naval base...?
  • Jun05-2011--showing teh indian influence on the US a drone attack kills ilyas kashmiri and eight others the architect of brilliant terrorist attacks...embarassing the pakistan armed forces is obviously worse than a terrorist attack...peopel now know that the pakistan armed forces can be attacked almost at will by half trained tribals..ilyas kashmiri rose to fame after the bombay attacks were said tobe his idea...The US is probably dishing out a lot cash for information on these guys..which is also typical of the tribals who will do anything for money...he is known as a brilliant tactician even though the indians cowardly nature did not allow him to succeed...some of the recent terrorist attacks could be russian in origin say some and many say the Red Saw might be personally involved...drone attacks restarted after the army refused to mount an operation in north waziristan and obviously Gilani has little to say about recent drone attacks which apparently did not have prior pakistani approval...
  • Jun04-2011--PMLn supporter baloch speaker Aslam Bhotani resigns
  • Jun04-2011--violence in karachi as 4 are killed and 9 vehicles torched...many say KESC which has been unable to remove kundas should be merged with Pepco to form a one country one power system or it should be devolved into two units taking care of power generation and distribution seperately
  • Jun04-2011--The finance minister who could not balance the budget and break the begging bowl envisages almost a trillion in deficits which is not really 4% but 46% of the budget...The GDP is just a misleading criterion...As expected the government could not come up with any new thinking and expects a 22% revenue jump...supposedly after reducing excise duties and nominal 100 billion increase in taxation...opposition politicians offered the finance minister their bangles...many say the opposition should insist on a balanced budget and no foreign aid...many say teh deficit is almost equal to the provincial allocation and shows the hasty immature NFC that Gilani negotiated with the provinces...There was little joy with no major allocations for the power sector..many say teh 14 billion HEC budget could go some way to improve rural education...simply said price hikes next year will be 22% plus probably another 20% due to petroleum price hikes, electricity price hikes and transport fare increases..the only anti army measure is the collection of sales taxes from army stores too..! and government workers obviously dancing in their offices as they get another 15% payrise after last years 50%...a bit too extravagant many say...just that and a 1% reduction in the GST will cost around 100 billion
  • Jun04-2011--The imported finance minister lying openly...there is no evidence of any subsidy on petroleum products nor is there any evidence of any subsidy on electricity ...in fact IPP's who have already paid their loans should reduce tariffs by half...about revenues we have increased the military budget from 50 billion to 500 billion and revenues have almost risen ten times to around 2 trillion from the early nineties......that should be a success story...The government should be comfortable and not act like a cry baby since they are doing little for the people...maybe 1 billion in subsidies for teh utility stores where prices are only a couple of percentages lower....they also want us to drink useless bottled drinks...?when education is provincialized than provincialize teh HEC...paying for higher education when kids in rural areas cant read even after school shows the pathetic thinking pattern of this regime
  • Jun04-2011--In the context of Nato Oil tankers and their burning...apparently the pakistan airforce is so worried that american aircraft might fall short of fuel that they have been sending daily flights of their ukrainian air refuelers so that the american aircraft can be refueled and in teh context of the abbottabad attack turnaround and use the same fuel against us..unless the US agrees not too mount any raids on pakistani territory whether the border or fata the nato oil tankers must be stopped from plying on our roads..others suggest that the fuel tankers are also being operated by a pakistan army subsidiary or contractors sponsored by the army (the NLC etc.).NLC was setup to transport parts for our nuclear program and also used to transport army imported goods up north from the karachi port...
  • Jun04-2011--The afghans suspecting the weakness in resolve of teh pakistan army attacked with about 250 men the shaltalo area in upper dir...retaliating after teh teh area was occupied pakistan eliminated 45 taleban... 30 soldiers and civilians killed on our side... rest of taleban escaped back to afghan territory..
  • Jun03-2011--balochistan governor says thinks deteriorating and out control of the chief minister and calls for federal action...Gilani gives a lacklustre response...many say that the DG punjab rangers might have been shot down by baloch rebels...or seraiki seperatists/terrorists
  • Jun03-2011--Shahid afridi who probably is better at selling shampoos than batting with an average of around 24 announces retirement after bickering about teh board, coach and selectors...both the recent pakhtun captains have been unable to handle inter departmental problems especially in selection and relations with teh coaches...many feel that while dictatorial captains like imran khan have been successful.. people like shahid afridi who are in teh team because of advertising and fame rather than ability have a tendency to look on even in teh field...captainship is a process where a captain has to make decisions only in a couple of instances as most matters are usually rehearsed or planned before hand...Afridi was unable to handle the pressure in the world cup match against india and did not make teh right decisions in selection and handling and his batting was quite terrible...many feel that he was also bowling quite wide to avoid being hit rather than try to take wickets...his retirement decision one feels is quite correct however teh board should allow him to play overseas...
  • Jun03-2011--The government revises its revenue for last year to 1588 billion and envisages a 22% increase in revenues...that means that teh government has almost doubled revenues thru its tax, tax and tax single minded policy...how much more do they want...still they want to widen teh tax base.. for what...to make peoples lives more miserable...it is time for the government to think whether they have an ounce of reason or logic in their brains..despite the doubling of revenues they still are unable to pay the enhanced provincial share of 57%...the provinces will at best get 30-40% because there is no money if teh government allocates 500 billion for the armed forces...200 billion administrative ..500 billion loan repayments..750 billion development...that leaves only around 500-600billion for the provinces and the government is obviously lying that it can make such payments to teh provinces...their share comes out to the pre NFC 37%...The government should quit lying and balance the budget...people are sick and tired of hearing tax agriculture...widen the tax base...it all has to come out of the peoples pockets in the end...as much as u increase revenues...the same percentage u have to hike prices somewhere...
  • Jun03-2011--Heard a discussion on a tv channel in which they all wanted to increase taxes...one thing that these experts need to understand is that price hikes are directly correlated with revenue hikes...if revenue increases are 60% than price hikes will be 60%..coupled with hikes in electricity and petroleum products the price hikes tend towards 100%...most experts wanted to tax agriculture and increase direct taxes...it is generally a good idea not to tax the food chain...otherwise if u tax the agriculturist he will just increase prices further...the same applies to chicken feed and chicken sellers and suppliers..if u increase taxes on them chicken will get expensive and people already finding protein sources extremely hard to afford...RGST not a good idea apart from the reduction in some taxes that it proposes...and i think if the governemnt had allocated and spent 5 trillion on power generation there would be no electricity problems by now...obviously the government did not seem to have 5 trillion to spend over two years anyway......similarly if u tax the millions of retailers what will they do...tag on their taxes to the sale price...the same goes for all other bussinessmen and industrialists...none of them pay out of their own pockets but tag all the taxes to the sales price..just increasing taxes isnt the only thing in a budget...stop wasteful spending...billions go into useless porkbarrel projects which are meaningless to the people...stop expanding and improve what u have...industrialisation is useless when u can get cheaper products from china...stop expensive aid from all donors...match the expenses to the actually available resources so that prices can be kept in check...stop fueling inflation...there is no point to it...reduce defence expenditure ...our armed forces have never been able to provide the expertise necessary...try to get your aid providers to write of your debt or reschedule debt over the next twenty years...delay aid returns and concentrate spending on the real problems that face the country...shortage of electricity and high prices...There is no point in increasing funding of provinces they donot provide any services to the people...delay NFC awards for two years...Indirect taxes are the best but that does not mean that u should keep increasing indirect taxes...This government has spent at least 6 trillion over the past three years and has nothing to show for it...why because all the trillions have been wasted uselessly...stop waste and think like a poor country..not like the USA...

  • Jun02-2011--afghan taleban attack shalto checpost 20 kilometers inside pakistan in upper dir killing seven soldiers..
  • Jun02-2011--The PPP commission on abbottabad ran into roadblocks as the primeminister consulted neither teh appointees, the SC CJ or the opposition leaders...while the appointees look good enough the primeminister could have more control than anyone else as his former secretary became teh commission secretary...one member fakhruddin ebrahim refused to serve
  • Jun02-2011--In what can be called another army failure the punjab rangers DG and his son and two others died in a helicopter crash...early reports said bad weather but newspaper reports suggest that the helicopter caught fire and fell...could be another case of exploding mangos...The DG seemed tobe running around the edges of his turf and having a son as an ADC seems tobe unethical too...what he wanted todo in pakhtun territory is also unknown
  • Jun01-2011--17 killed in Orakzai airstrikes...two FC men killed in bomb blast in quetta..four bodies found in lyari...jui official killed in karak...four nato tankers gutted near torkham
  • Jun01-2011--with drone attacks increasingly unpopular with the dubious natured PPP regime apart from Asif Zardari who wanted a drone for his personal use(probably to eliminate sindhi and baloch opponents)...The pakistan army reluctantly wants to take over operations in which they could eliminate suicide bomber training centers...north waziristan a hub for an entire army division with three brigade centers...many suggest the attacks will probably be on the pattern of the abbottabad attacks with gunship helicopters and troops being ferried in..in an inhospitable terrain...many suggest that the drone attacks have probably eliminated hundreds of taleban militants although the present taleban leadership is more guarded about their personal security after teh elimination of three earlier taleban leaders...
  • Jun01-2011--The PPP regime appoints a judicial commission with controversial pro establishment judge javed iqbal as teh head...with the terms of reference including the american concern about how ossama established himself in abbottabad...recent reports suggest that it was the taleban who probably funded ossama's exile unless the military did not run off with boxes filled with bars of gold...others still suggest that the military chief has been behind it all along which might have prompted teh PPP regime to give him an unprecedented three year extension...ossama's removal from the scene has again allowed terrorism to take off which was partially subdued...
  • Jun01-2011--apparent taleban and ISI insider journalist Saleem Shehzad battered to death near sarai alamgir and body found near head rasul...he was the author of a forthcoming book.."Inside alqaeda and the taleban--beyond ossama and 9/11"..apparently knocked out by the vicious PPP's ISI who apparently had warned him not to report on contentious unknown issues...he also suggested that the mehran raid came after alqaeda naval employees had been interrogated...one can see it in teh context of the Ossama elimination in which at least three incidents could be inter related...the killing of a saudi diplomat in karachi, the mehran attack and the killing of this journalist who obviously would have sources in the military, ISI and taleban...many suggest that he could be the journalist who aired reports about ossama and his living conditions...others suggest that the taleban might have eliminated a person who knew too much about them or who could possibly have provided information on where Ossama lived...reports suggest that most taleban knew where Ossama lived...

the yellow sportscar of military corruption...dont mistake the car for a military boot......while military corruption at the grassroots maybe impossible to visualize the top controlled army has revealed a list of senior generals involved in corruption...two karachi and lahore corp commanders and two former baloch FC chiefs...the yellow sportscar is a symbol how the army has misconstrued corruption, honesty and bravado mixed with dictatorial super powers of senior officers who are rarely challenged..many joke that if the yellow sportscar had been delivered to its rightful owner the army chief than who would ever have been able to question an FC chief...!how the military extorts or usurps land for its purposes is nade clear by the shenanigans of hammad arshad and two kayani brigadiers...

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?
rejected as a revolutionary because he repeated the stuff others had already tried...this country has already seen crazies and coupplotters who wanted to set things right but who eventually returned to the status quo ..the country has seen reforms, constitutions, martial laws, provisional constitutions,revolutions, harsh crackdowns of various shapes but still was left with the same set of crooked politicians...tobe a revolutionary u really cannot be a mullah and have the establishment's candidate tagging along...u have tobe unchallenged and be able to subdue everyone into silence...u have also need of new ideas, methods and obviously a way to topple a government and dominate the army and beaurocracy as well as teh populace...just beating up the already subdued/subjugated police does not look very revolutionary anymore and shouting speeches are really old hat...nobody was frightened and the army said we have already done all that several times already...!...back to canada it is for the failed revolutionary...

beneficial tobe in government
it is still beneficial tobe in government...shah mahmood qureshi has ten illegal electricity connections in one house in multan...nawaz sharif in one go has gotten rid of twenty year old references...dawn sees the dharnas as an unguided missile they dont know where they are going and change direction everyday...and Go Nawaz Go is plastered on islmabad traffic and lane signs...it has also been heard in national assembly committee and several government functions in lahore...Imran Khn apparently thinks that the containerstop(dharna) is just the last stop before they jump into government...!

the situation..

the situation..
blasts, metro and a huge PTI rally in lahore...Imran Khan goes for rallies but does not want to end the dharna which has outlived its utility...Nawaz Sharif seen as defensive behind the barriers says he is still working while others see his government as unable to handle things...Bomb blasts have resumed while karachis burn and kill politics continues despite an year long operation in which the Rangers say they targeted everyone...the most effected were religious groups, criminals and the lyari groups...mqm says its 45 were killed but they still have their firepower intact say others...so the situation is now almost similar to PPP rule...a government seen as ineffective, bomb blasts and a resurgent PTI threatening to have the primeminister removed thru the SC...does the primeminister have enough immunity...things could turn out differently with the 2013 elections being hounded into the ground...Dawn suggests that a south punjab diversion thru parliaments could be the way out...but it is difficult for the punjab when everyone rejects a mohajir sooba and a hazara sooba...

all but over...

its all but over...even if an election is held in three or six months the huge support of PMLn not expected to shift to PTI-qadri...their meanness is too dangerous for their elite...the dhandli was but a ruse...with the floods and mean and nasty natures of imran khan and tahir ul qadri containergate is all but over...it is just left for them to decide when to paddle back to lahore...the floods were devastating but while the nasty containers wiped the smiles off the faces of the lohars of jati umra they were satisfied to a certain extent that they could not fool the SC and the corp commanders...it is just a hyde park for imran khan he can make as many speeches he likes and when his throat starts to wither he can head home like javed hashmi...

half in half out

half in half out
half in half out...there is really nothing to smile about...while qadri who here looks like Modi here has got what he wants Imran Khan lacking political sense does not know what todo...everyone else says go home we will manage it...imran khan only knows how to play tough cop and is unaware that u sometimes have to throw matches just to achieve an end...both seem to have behind the scenes conspirators who are not worried by what they do or achieve or the trouble and damage they do to themselves and the country

The National Assembly which has failed to represent the people under attack by two clonelike formations with no interest inits survival...further damage has been done by bringing in the army chief as a final mediator...a coup in but name...!..earlier reports that the army might be behind the street demos...earlier even Qadri was making claims that he was here to defend Nawaz Sharif otherwise there would be a coup...PMLn had made attempts earlier to draw in the army chief...however the utter failure to reach a decision has increased the army chiefs strength...it is yet tobe seen what leverage he has on the two attackers...

shallow

shallow
teh shallow nature of Nawaz Sharifs policies seems very apparent when u look at how his taleban containment policy has worked out and his some say idiotic policy on india and obviously many donot think he has any policy on sectarianism...most governments tilt towards teh shiites who are regarded as serious sunni killing machines too...teh taleban were supposedly his friends who troubled his opponents into smithereens... and his disliked budget and his policies that seem just ordinary at times...his dragging along of nargis sethi when she should be retired...is another case in point...!and his interior minister was fast asleep at home as the karachi terror attack took place and NS could not find him because he was asleep too...!

an apt description

an apt description
an apt description for the PMLn attitude...! as an afterthought even after the budget had been presented teh PMLn regime which is attempting to impose sales tax on shoes, clothes,medicines etc.they announced a one billion handout or a pilot program for the pooorest poor 's health insurance...unlike Obama they did not ask teh poor to pay for that too...

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing,...as altaf's arrest in london was announced for corruption he was sent to hospital for ordinary blood checks which can be conducted in a few minutes..rumours of a blocked artery stalled the british police...ever since he formed the mqm with a group of others who he has had killed he has blackmailed the pakistani governments continuously on the base of support of a majority ethnic group of karachiites...all governments benazir, ziaulhaq, nawaz sharif, musharaf, PPP, PMLn, ANP did his bidding but he always ended up trying to seperate karachi as a province or state...the "mein na manoon" ran as the operations started in karachi and decimated his 3000 man army...for twenty years he kept up the rigmarole of killing opponents, bhatta and blackmailing one government after the other...he now has the support of another east punjabi mohajir nawaz sharif who quickly issued him a passport and nicop...the british hid him from sight in a hospital on the ruses of an illness...having gotten fat over the last twenty years life in calm britain does not suit him...but the british many say want the killers of imran farook and than he might make another attempt at life in pakistan...otherwise british jails are a very comfortable place too...the mqm has karachi in a dither and everyone looking on to see how they get out of this situation...!!!

the empty grave

the empty grave
democracy is an organized process and one cannot as they say run wild like the PAT and PTI...The PMLn also unable to control them...In the PPP era the same container mullah was used to threaten to create an mqm type terrorist politico but whoever controlled the strings pulled out...now in a different government with the pathetic duo of sharifs unable to handle the agitation cum protest and are in fact trying to buildup two demagogues or demonizers...unless the sharifs step into the qadri grave the status quo cannot change...The people are not worried about a change in power but the armed forces can be frightened of the inability to handle as well as the prospects of two demons who wont accept normal control mechanisms...that frightens the army more than a rough and tumble few weeks...with qadri attempting to suggest that he can form and run a dunda army in the punjab and imran khan showing off his tremendous support things cannot change too much unless the sharifs cut and run...nawaz sharif trying to placate both amid the vulnerability of unpopular rule which is more dangerous...qadri and imran khan can see the weakness...the only option for the sharifs is also to use their popular support which could be difficult to galvanize in times of trouble but good for a vote...creating an mqm type terror outfit which could with imran khan make substantial changes in an election scenario..but the elections are too far and how much support will nawaz sharif lose by that time...he can easily frighten a lot of people to vote for him again...the race between the azadi and inqilabi marches is nearing an end but it could develop into a lower economic front backlash for the sharifs...eventually shahbaz sharif will have to go as he has turned into a toothless tiger batted around by the violence prone PAT/MWM/PTI...!!!

imran khan the hardened pukhtun warrior literally lunges into nawaz sharif's pleasure trip or final trip as primeminister...probably fedup sitting in opposition wants the sharifs to go home for good now...!while a handshake with the PMLn tigers tail might look odd at this time...while the PMLn finds a huge 200 feet pole for the flag raising...!independence or azadi is meant to celebrate rather than protest...azadi does not really mean that u can do anything ...!

change

change
the winds of change ..usually means a fresh pro people change in government...with ishaq dar killing any love for the government with high electricity bills...imran khan looking for a change most likely in the top position of punjab...khawaja saad rafik seems tobe ogling the chief ministry with a demonstration of his ability to handle and explain things...would that be enough for imran khan...many suggest kicking the dubious judiciary out of the electoral process...

emerging from teh underground

emerging from teh underground
emerging from the underground/hiding and resurfacing in the USA...The Zardari's after nawaz sharif started facing problems with qadri's and imran khan's...we ar'nt frightened of a four seat recount they say...!...there wont be any suicide bombers in washington...son..!!!

the fake revolutionary

the fake revolutionary
the fake revolutionary and the failed revolution...in the sixties the communists always wanted a body to create political nuisance value by running withit thru the streets...it never really worked here...now the fake revolutionary a topi wearing firebrand television evangelist living in canada created an event where he rioted and fired at the police causing the death of his men and nearly succeeded they say but for the dumb....than he said a revolution was near...today...tommorrow...whenever it is announced...!a truckdriver can be a revolutionary but a canadian mullah mouthing socialistic pipedreams of jobs for the people...nobody believes that ...neither the army or the people...!!!however the people who rioted for him seemed trained to riot and probably many said were ISI workers or even the work of hamza shahbaz sharif...!a revolutionary industrialist...!!nah...

just Rs.600

just Rs.600
while just Rs.600 to 350000 poor families of KP per month might not be much but still the PTI uses it to demonstrate its charitability...many feel that the tribals what with their smuggling, dacoities and bhatta were already quite well off...

from a dawn blog

from a dawn blog
pictures from a dawn blog...These pictures depict what has happened to pakistan...charing cross, lahore in teh 1930's...punjab huge and powerful has been crushed by teh PPP thru electricity shutdowns and stoppage of power projects but still they plan to divide it into three so sindh can seem tobe part of pakistan even inits meanness...teh ethnic/terror/sectarian wars in gilhgit-kohistan, karachi, Fata and balochistan mirror east pakistans uprising but the solution is still the same... crush them...the liberalism of teh PIA advert in the sixties and seventies shows how conservative we have become...the quaids mazaar under construction on a mound in karachi's sixties...would'nt it have looked better that way...looks so different now...in east pakistan the army still so considerate...openup...and teh most effect that something has had on pakistan teh india afghan border in teh 1930's...

debacle in Dacca

debacle in Dacca
total humiliation...India had steadily destabilized east pakistan over twenty years playing on ethnic, financial, development and military concerns...pakistan was not that rich at that time and the ethnicists played on phsychosis generated by cyclones, floods, tea and jute...the army and west pakistani politicians could not accept a bengali dominated government and a small army contingent could not defend against the mukti bahini and the indians as teh US withdrew its support as usual...When teh going gets tough teh US chickens out as usual...!! The indians have continued teh same themes in karachi, sindh and balochistan but similar tougher responses have not allowed their success although pakistan is now at best a divided land with a pathetic center...!!While it left pakistan numb at the time many now feel the seperation was a proper solution as east pakistanis did not get along with pakistan and they would be better able to solve their problems with india...others still pine away for the lost land of rivers, tea and jute...others suggest that india should handover kashmir in exchange...while some still want to repatriate those considered pakistanis and left stranded in bangladeshi camps...others however heave a sigh of relief as teh problems with the remaining provinces are generally insoluble.....and ethnic regionalism or provincialism mixed with economic and racial nonsense is not a pleasant mode of politics anyway...

syria a new beirut

syria a new beirut
teh arabs really cant solve anything without a bloody fight...aspects of iraq and beirut make syria look like a new beirut...teh destruction in Homs

the chabri wala

the chabri wala
the failed industrialist dawn suggests is actually doubling as a rehriwala attempting to sell rotten fruit to unknowing foreigners...since he has no real expertise to run even a factory many say...while foreigners have only bought straight commercial successes such as PTCL, UBL, kot addu, KESC, one does not see any real bilionaire type landing in pakistan to purchase its smallware...ie. troublesome distribution companies and successful but gas less SNGPL and SSGPL...etc...teh reasonings for privatisation to foreign companies or even foreign sounding companies is that teh people will not complain if some gora raises electricity prices or cuts off their connections...while terrorists remain tobe subdued they have not troubled any industrialist usually hitting on small time bussinesses...
