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

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 as 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 Oct 1-15, 2011

  • Oct15-2011--Fiza Gilani challenges benazirs position apparently in a government advert...she is known as quite a heavy fraudster after having a 200 million loan written off by ADB for companies that were just a front for the loans
  • Oct15-2011--In another drone attack four tribals are killed
  • Oct15-2011--many are labelling Admiral fasih Bokhari as corrupt as teh opposition leader called for selecting a NAB chief from an agreed panel by consensus...apparently Fasih told the prime minister that he was willing to give his entire wealth for the position...Gilani responded that i have already made billions...many suggest that Fasih emphasized that he would straighten out each and every politician
  • Oct15-2011--In a shock decision teh PPP increased electricity prices by upto 70% for median users and 35% for top level consumers in former wapda areas...punjab which will have to foot upto 70% of the electricity bill is seeing teh anti punjab animosity of the PPP in a clearer light as electricity prices are not raised for karachi...former wapda companies will approximately make upto 500 billion per year which apparently seems tobe callous and shocking...ie if it is not just for one month...even that amounts to around 40 billion in extra payments for consumers this month...That after mehsud indicated that wapda companies had over 92 billion in reserves..it is also shocking in the context that electricity from hydel is maximum during the month
  • Oct15-2011--The PPP barely survived a split in sindh as the Zulfikar mirza group backed down after the mqm agreed not to change teh status quo on local bodies...Both PPP and mqm are undemocratic as far as sindh is concerned and are subduing dissidents with the capacity to form opposition parties or groups who are opposed to the zardari clans policies...mqm has incarcerated afaq ahmed again as the PPP attempts to force zulfikar mirza out of politics
  • Oct14-2011--defeating the PPP-PMLq candidate PMLn candidate wins PPP-220 by election...support for the PPP-PMLq is falling steadily as they are seen as not solving peoples problems and only working for the rich..the PPP also seen as anti punjab and having strange policies viz the terrorist mqm...
  • Oct14-2011--ayesha malik supposedly a shabaz sharif daughter in law accused of kidnapping filipino maids child...given bail by LHC...no reason assigned for kidnapping maids child
  • Oct14-2011--war continues in the tribal areas with military killing five in shabqadar and mohmand
  • Oct14-2011--crazy PPP regime prone to sitting on money like banias(hoping that the money will lay eggs to pay for IMF loans...?) and needed projects and imports are left dangling hoping that gas will not fall short for even the minor domestic needs...
  • Oct14-2011--five die in mastung coalmine explosion
  • Oct14-2011--US drones kill ten militants in fata attacks including jamil haqqani a member of teh haqqani clan..US follows opposing paths in the war with hilary saying that they wanted talks with haqqanis and the cia killing them..the haqqani network says the USA is not sincere and talks should be held with the top taleban leaders only
  • Oct14-2011--PMLn rejects Admiral Fasih as NAB chairman on procedural grounds...PPP has shown an inability to discuss things with the opposition leader although willing to talk with terrorists and extortionists for personal gains
  • Oct14-2011--The national assembly saw some fiery attacks from the oppositionn leader when he accused the mqm of being a terrorist and fascist party with a militant wing involved in extortion, murders and creating nogo areas...The mqm members went wild and crazy ...this was in response to their attacking zulfikar mirza in the national assembly...The PPP which uses the mqm as an attack dog in karachi has refused to acknowledge the mqm's extortion related killings in karachi... Chaudhry Nisar despite having military connections accused the PPP of turning the DHA into a land mafia...he also referred to rumours that asif zardari had asked teh USA to stop a coup a week after the abbottabad attack...and offered to change the military top brass...panetta's statement that pakistan poses a real threat to US interests shows the type of relations that pakistan has with the USA while martin dempsey was more realistic suggesting pakistan, afghanistan and africa posed real problems
  • Oct13-2011--India is not a good trading partner stopping supplies such as cotton when LC's had been opened and only picking up goods such as cheap cement from pakistan...The balance can hardly be in our favour...ZAB also like Asif Zardari made the mistake of emphasizing trade...he opened 400 items for trade and teh indians immediately swamped teh markets and trade was restricted again...now thousands of items are allowed...trade is not important as india is not going to solve any problems that way...MFN to a bad trading partner is hardly a principled decision...india has shown no inclination to solve any of the real problems...
  • Oct13-2011--PMLn shying away from confrontation on NAB appointee...Nawaz sharif and chaudhry Nisar should meet the appointee before making a decision ...many say that nawaz sharif suggested that the admiral is extremely stubborn
  • Oct13-2011--In what seems to suggest that the PPP is tired of being in government they try again to shut down commercial areas at sundown and go off on two day holidays...load shedding must be shared by everyone not only the non vip's...the government, vips, elite, army and industrial sectors must share the burden to ease the situatiojn...The PPP regime has the nasty habit of foisting all problems onto the people when they have no ideas how to tackle them...since most of the electricity is used by the industrial sector their staggered holidays must be significant enough to cause load shedding tobe reduced...government should ask all industrial users or high end users to arrange their own power and fuel supplies...reduction in demand creation should also be enforced by reduction in housing estates, new industries in useless sectors..shutting down high end users for a longer duration and all street lights and neon/ad lighting...power stations should be allowed to arrange their own fuel supplies and all petroleum supply companies should be allowed to import furnace oil...many suggest that the governments take teh lead and clear all their own bills first
  • Oct12-2011--three nato oil tankers set on fire in dasht killing two
  • Oct12-2011--a case has been filed in teh LHC accusing yusuf raza gilani of spending over Rs500 million of government funds on his homes in lahore and multan..it also accuses other leaders of keeping assets abroad plundered from public money...LHC CJ asked respondents to submit their assets in and out of teh country
  • Oct12-2011--one killed as rockets fired at government compound in orakzai during visit of KP governor
  • Oct12-2011--controversial zaka ashraf whom the SC wanted removed from his post as he was not a banker apparently appointed PCB head...zaka ashraf apparently wrote of the 200 million loan that gilanis wife took to setup non existent plants...loan taken during the military rule of zia ul haq...SC however also moved to take notice of irregularities and corruption during the tenure of zaka ashraf at the ADB
  • Oct11-2011--reports suggest that shabaz sharif's police officials terrorized a women and her daughter who claims tobe the wife of hamza shabaz...infact they had an ATC judge arrest her for terrorism...The LHC released teh women and ordered an inquiry against the ATC judge...
  • Oct11-2011--The current stoppage of load shedding is just due to the conditions and fright of punjab possibly going haywire says naveed qamar suggesting that no pro people measures are going tobe taken if demand rises...many suggest the stoppage of needless construction projects in the housing, building,commercial and industrial sector and they only be allowed if they setup their own power plants...PPP will have to organise the next elections during the end year period to avoid complaints about electricity...the PPP a pretty crazy organisation wants praise for doing their job and that too after riots...if they had invested in bhasha in 2008 it would be near completion now ...neither has any housing been built at the bhasha site nor the needed new road...in fact most people say that the remote site will also have worker problems all of whom will have tobe imported from nwfp
  • Oct11-2011--The PPP which only opposes baloch militants and taleban and those also it avoids handling suggests that parties involved in the karachi mayhem kick out militant groups...The PPP which is friendly with one of the most militant organisation in teh country involved in murders and terrorist acts all over teh country is unable to deal with that openly...
  • Oct11-2011--Zulfikar Mirza's peoples aman committee was banned by the interior minister which bodes ill for other terrorist organisations such as the mqm, anp, ST etc...many say that the people who donot want criminals in the mqm are themselves heading terrorist groups...others say that the malee ankh group led by khurshid shah and sharjeel memon could join zulfikar mirza in a splinter sindh PPP group which could attract twenty to thirty mpa's...the sindh PPP has upto now not had a real split with senior leaders unable to capitalise on differences with benazir...zulfikar mirza is the first to get teh support of over twenty mpa's...but sindh PPP members are still frightened of the bhutto powerbase in sindh which literally turns power brokers into dust...many are however unable to get along with the pro mohajirism of teh zardari clan...
  • Oct11-2011--The controversial suggestion of making a retired admiral who must be around 70 years old the NAB chief got mired in trouble as it was revealed that he had problems with nawaz sharif over musharaf's appointment as well as navy matters...many suggest that the admiral is possibly a relative of asif zardari...!ostensibly appointed by nawaz sharif as naval chief he should have been a shu in but the possibility of his being a zardari relative and having been at odds with nawaz sharif are problems...obviously musharaf could not get along with him either and he did not last long even in a military regime...!
  • Oct10-2011--four bullet riddled bodies found in khuzdar...kurram tribes agree to reopen tal-parachinar highway...one killed in three blasts in troubled baloch areas..transporter amongst four shot dead in karachi
  • Oct10-2011--Zulfikar Mirza bounces back with his aman committee amid allegations of corruption against his colleagues/mqm and suggests that altaf hussein the cowardly englishman study what he has been doing for the last 22 years...says manzoor wasan has started selling thana's...he vilified the frightened zardari for his inept policies...The mqm countered by saying his family came from georgia...!!
  • Oct10-2011--senate elections which the PPP aims to dominate at any cost have caused a PMLq dissident to suggest that the punjab assembly be dissolved...this could result in new elections in the punjab in ninety days or governor rule...new elections in the punjab could wipe out teh PPP and reduce their senate seats by upto three or four...PPP also looking for fata senate seats which it probably wont get unless it gives the fata mna's ten ministries...some suggest that punjab elections could confuse teh PPP into calling early elections and bringing a sensible government into power...many suggest that the PPP has been criminal in causing incessant load shedding,refusing to control karachi mayhem, terrorism and literally destroying teh countries economy by looting trillions...PPP responds that the sharifs have literally looted the punjab treasury thru sasti roti(10 billion) and have been unable to control dengue with defogging only in a few areas in the badfly affected punjab
  • Oct10-2011--In another confusing move Zardari offers to appoint a sleepy looking retired admiral as NAB chairman and offers consultation to the opposition leader...the judiciary and opposition wanted a judge appointed rather than a military man....
  • Oct9-2011--two anp workers shot dead in karachi
  • Oct9-2011--with inflation overall still very high government eases interest rates to 12%
  • Oct8-2011--In another demonstartion of mqm's cruel murderous nature a journalist was murdered in lahore whose brothers online newspaper The London Post printed a story that the british police had stopped altaf hussain from escaping to south africa as the noose tightened supposedly around the mqm killers of imran farook...who voluntarily went into pakistan police custody...
  • Oct8-2011--nawaz sharif urged the mqm to hand over its indian trained terrorists who had brought the pathetic sindh government almost to its knees...many notice the similarities between the indian terrorist ajmal pahari who eliminated 100 people and ajmal kasab...many say contract killers literally roamed around karachi asking people if they wanted someone killed...however nawaz sharif seems confused on the issue of new provinces which most provinces and people dislike...kiani and sindhi ministers have been talking about "maily ankhen bhore denge" literally a criminal act in itself...why should punjab be divided when teh constitution and people oppose it...
  • Oct8-2011--After three years of almost continuous load shedding and price hikes the unpopular people duping gilani says he has suddenly controlled load shedding...This ocurred after extreme load shedding riots in punjab which many say were designed to divide the punjab along seraiki-punjabi lines...many suggest that gilani-zardari-kiani have a deep cruelty motivated animosity against the people almost on the lines of the taleban suicide bombings...Gilani after doing literally nothing(apart from the vanishing money trail) for three years now says he will speed up power projects...also announced that the bhasha dam already started by musharaf five years ago will be restarted again...no major work has been carried out on the dam barring the building of a wapda residential colony...dam work to start many say in two years and could be completed by 2019-2020..many say the dam became popular again amongst the sindhi rulers after two years of destructive flooding in sindh...
  • Oct7-2011--WHO says dengue is not a killer disease which demonstrates the absymal quality of healthcare in pakistan and that the deaths are probably due to other causes...
  • Oct7-2011--In what can best be stated tobe enmity with the people the PPP regime announces wind power tariff at an astronomical high rate of 14.66 cents...wind power does not require any fuel and the rate can at best be described as criminal...
  • Oct7-2011--PMLn national assembly leaders and some from the PMLq-likemminded, fata and JUI also held a token sitin at the presidency whose occupant they regard as the troublemaker in chief who has guided the PPP to nothingness...
  • Oct7-2011--The Supreme Court inits decision on how to handle the karachi situation completely avoided the actual issue and roamed around suggesting various administrative issues...it said banning the troublemaker in chief the mqm is not its job but that of the federal government...there has been no evidence of police politisization in karachi against teh mqm which in fact has not even been troubled after the police and rangers were reactivated...the sindh government wants to blame the ST and JSQM which are minor political groups...The PPP has denied participation in killings but not in bhatta gathering while teh mqm and ANP have agreed that they have participated in both ethnic warfare and bhatta gathering...The ST and JI have also denied gathering bhatta...If the sindh government does not act against the actual troublemakers which are rehman malik, mqm, sindh government and ANP and possibly killers directed from the presidency than the silence of teh lambs is a better description of teh SC decision...The police and rangers quickly controlled things when rehman malik and the mqm were thrown out of the equation showing the influence of the perpretrators...television descriptions of bhatta gatherers show the type of people involved...criminal elements should be handled normally by the police and political involvements should be handled by the sindh regime...rumours of huge amounts kept overseas by the mqm, its governor, altaf hussein point to some of the participants in karachis criminal bhatta groups...most of the political violence has been between rehman malik's non judicial killers, ST and the mqm plus the lyari gangs which were initially controlled by PPP supporters such as rehman dacait etc...The police should act aginst all troublemakers...In the old days the police had a list of ghundas who were picked up whenever something happened in their areas...now police want the people to think that target killers and land mafia and bhatta gatherers were the cause of the problem and not ethnic warfare including ethnic cleansing...typecasting problems and solutions for political purposes will not solve anything unless the police act against all criminals irrespective of whether they belong to the mqm or not...The sindh government should display some courage and initiate actions on all troublemakers and criminals...
  • Oct6-2011--Things many say moved quickly after the PMLn reached an agreement with the PMLq and Mqm to launch a no confidence vote against what many see as a reluctant two timing lame duck primeminister...Gilani has been slow and dancing to crisis after crisis rather than following a a pro people agenda...however the PPP has a lot to offer to the mqm and the PMlq which could theoretically be wiped out in the next elections
  • Oct6-2011--In what might be a belated reaction to a disjointed sifarishi naval chief who could not handle things appropriately..Asif Sandila appointed naval chief...navy more in the news due to the orion attack on a karachi naval airbase where one gunman probably destroyed an airbase and attacks by probable rebels on naval transport vehicles...navy however put up a good show in handling a few flood relief camps...reports suggest that one of teh reasons that the mqm jumped back into the government could be the superceding of eight mohajir major generals by general Kiani who preferred the more stable punjabis
  • Oct6-2011--four shot dead in quetta by motor cycle gunmen
  • Oct6-2011--In another about turn the drugged looking mqm rejoined the government as the PMLq backed out of resigning from the government...that is the result of the almost coordinated riots that broke out in punjab as the PPP deliberately mocked the punjab with 12-16 hours of electricity load sheddings...while teh PMLn jumped into the fray attempting to stay on the peoples side the PPP backed out from its disastrous policy of deriding the punjab and its leaders...however the mqm and PMLq politics was hit for a six and they subsided into the position of mere hangers on...The PPP quickly realised that it had no choice but to drag along the chaudhris and the mohajirs for any chance of surviving the next elections...although there were some whinings from the PMLq legislators of attempts at replacing the conniving conspiracy prone chaudhry shujaat... The PMLn also happy tobe a bit more violent than their usual nature...The sindh government took the greatest risk as the mqm in the government has always meant trouble in karachi...but probably zulfikar mirza's exit makes its an ordinary affair...whether the dubious qaim ali shah can control the ethnic warmongers still remains in doubt...
  • Oct5-2011--soldier killed in a missile attack in south waziristan and a hotel set on fire at the gomal dam site
  • Oct5-2011--The Dawn says the US has stopped all military and non military aid and the pakistan government has not responded by ending its slavish relationship...Karzai too went on an anti pakistan india visit as he was unshackled from teh pro pakistan burhannudin rabbani...making many feel that india may be involved in both afghan and quetta violence...many feel it is high time that the military changed any US source of hardware such as helicopters and f-16s...the government can change to european models and even russian...The relationship with teh US is highly flawed and completly counter productive for pakistan...depending on the USA is just more trouble
  • Oct5-2011--The PMLq and Mqm both with very little leverage on teh PPP also started to actup as PMlq legislators handed over their resignations..however by the evening it started to look like nura kushti with teh pro establishment PMLq not expected to get out of government however many feel that the PMlq wants more senate seats and teh Mqm wants its karachi oppponents like afaq ahmed kept in jail...
  • Oct5-2011--14 hazaras shot dead near quetta in an attack on a bus
  • Oct5-2011--The sindhi federal ministers of power and petroleum had better realize that people are sick and tired of their incompetence...while the PPP backed down quickly it is apparent that the country is drifting without any control process...This is just like the abbottabad incident when the military was left watching as the americans invaded and left them a laughing stock for the weary public...riots which were spreading quickly in the punjab as the PPP regime choked off electricity supplies subsided as the government changed priorities and restored some generation...punjab is not like karachi and will take action both on the street and at the ballott boxes
  • Oct4-2011--In what is being seen here as a deliberate attempt to destabilize the punjab... riots broke out as the PPP government choked electricity supplies across the punjab ...initially the riots were seen as the work of raja riaz while some saw the hand of the terrorist mqm while some said they were spontaneous eruptions against government high handedness..however even Nawaz Sharif belatedly asked his workers to join the protests...there have been rumours that raja riaz was planning violent protests...a reluctant Nawaz Sharif who is seen as an establishment type with a lack of knowledge of economics and even how Wapda worked until the military snuffed it out...The PPP regime like Nawaz Sharif has been choking funds from key priority areas as the primeminister refuses to handle the country and its economics. Gilani is a small town leader frightened of straightening out errant and slow plodding ministers...Gilani lacks public support and is not too keen to even take an interest in teh countries public problems primarily electricity, gas and price hikes...however the riots caused the PPP regime to quickly change tack...a solid wapda type organisation would not allow so many power stations to be taken out of production at once...however the ministry of Power and a divided public and private generation system has no system wide managers to ease problems...many suggest that teh international donor driven wrong policies of privatisation and price hikes and subsidised private power houses has caused a stalling of teh system as teh government is unable to understand how to tackle the problem due many think to a lack of ability...Gilani only understands politics and does not know what todo about anything else causing a slowness of governance and decision making...
  • Oct3-2011--electricity load shedding of an unimaginable proportion caused widespread tensions and riots in punjab while lahore saw the burning of a lesco office and police vehicles...load shedding in most places was almost 12 hours and available electricity had fallen below 10000 MW...This is the result of one must say the crazy sindhis and seraikis who are allowing the situation to worsen day by day...they must realize that teh situation can only improve if they do something about it and a radical change in policy is one of teh many options...the system of a private power sector propped up by the government and the rest managed by state utilities is not working and teh government must do something about it...nobody is going to come running to help...the ministry of power and the private sector has been unable to control things ever since teh dismantling of Wapda which one must say managed things creditably...prices of electricity have since skyrocketed but load shedding has gone up steadily ...management of things in a system including the money minting private sector, state sector and PSO with governments refusing to cough up resources is almost like assuring a systems destruction...the government should go back to a system of being managed by a Wapda like entity with full control...private power sector should also be allowed to work onits own as teh government cant manage it with subsidies...electricity is now more important than agriculture and water and gas management...gas to industries is a total wastage and must be shifted to electricity production...CNG stations must be shut down for good and the private sector/power stations be allowed to import fuel themselves...priorities have tobe changed with a changing situation...the private sector just cant manage a system that they know nothing about and experienced power engineers be made the heads of power utilities...resources must be quickly arranged the government sector must pay their bills...in the extreme a nationalisation of the power sector be thought about...the country must use its own resources and the governments should stop federal and provincial investment in sectors that can be managed by teh private sector...governments should realize that the funding of the state sector is necessary just as the private sector which gets loans for every project from banks...one has not seen any private sector that has been funded by personal resources...even teh biggest private sectors use bank loans for expansion...if some sector is in the state sector than its needs have tobe managed thru revenues...education, housing, roads, textiles can all be managed thru the private sector without need of state funds...priorities must be based on teh countries needs...u cant create more electricity requirements and not invest in the power generation sector...
  • Oct3-2011--afghanistan says that the rabbani killer came from chaman while the pakistanis respond by saying that he was an afghan insider who stayed at a government guest house and the handler an afghan who had been roaming around kabul and kandahar
  • Oct2-2011--four policemen killed in an IED bomb attack in mansehra
  • Oct2-2011--Pakistani diplomacy collapsed again as afghanistan now wants talks with pakistan as it accuses teh ISI of eliminating burhannudin rabanni
  • Oct2-2011--In a seemingly hasty move an ATC judge sentenced to death Mumtaz Qadri...this can be seen in the context of the benazir murder which is still in court...protestors burnt tires , damaged vehicles and tore the benazir picture at her memorial
  • Oct1-2011--With all the gadgetry from space, ground and drones aswell as ground troops and artillery admiral Mullen unable to explain how fighters come from pakistan to strike hundreds of miles away...obviously teh US admiral is using the haqqani network for propaganda purposes to subdue an underdog pakistan which is unable to even protest properly teh americans enmity...many suggest that pakistan too should use tough and harsh language for teh US to carryout its financial obligations otherwise there is nothing in the relationship for pakistan
  • Oct1-2011--a drone kills three including a mullah nazir militant showing that there are hardly any alqaeda left in fata and most of them are low order taleban mostly involved in the tribal areas...while three including twom levis men shot dead in kalat
  • Oct1-2011--militaries financial shenanigans highlighted as three ex NLC generals tobe tried for stock market scams
  • Oct1-2011--instead of the french paying commissions to pakistani scum it might seem that pakistan may have been paying french senior politicians for military deals...
  • Oct1-2011--suspicious US embassy construction site sealed in I-9

the earthquake

the earthquake jolts in punjab were severe but the damge was mostly in the KP hilly areas...a water tank was shifted from its moorings in peshawar but did not fall...

the monument

the monument
The army as everyone knows has more money to spend and is quick to serve its own interests...the APS monument in Rawalpindi's Ayub Park is incongruous and does not seem to serve the remembrance of one of the worst terrorist incidents in the countries history

the army image..

the army image..
the armies image...songs, drama's and films by teh ISPR... remembering December 16, 1971 and the current sindhi viewpoint of the Rangers... who have been a cause of the decline in politically motivated disturbances in karachi which the provincial government had been unable to handle for over a decade...

the contest is not so straight

the contest is not so straight
the contest between the military and the terrorists is not so straight...both like different aspects...the army likes the martyr effect...trying to buildup a courageous image of the at best innocent victims while the terrorist likes the immediate effect the terror, fright and destruction...obviously in the end one side has to win and the phsycological warfare reaches its climax with the action and later reactions...

nawaz sharif's inability

nawaz sharif's inability
what pakistan has inits future...in two years loadshedding has not changed an iota...so what is in the works that will end load shedding...coal power plants and nuclear plants have not even gotten off the ground...cheap petroleum products has not solved it...even if neelum jhelum is completed will it make a difference...hardly ...!

military corruption

military corruption
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...

terrorists or dakoos

terrorists or dakoos
army and SSG called in to fight the chotoo terrorist gang...!!!after scouring punjab looking for the herds of terrorists the police and army finally find a desertified island in rajanpur where the chotoo gang has them terrified...while telling the french that they want to modernize JF-17's for a terror fight...for which an attack helicopter is supposedly more than enough...!

a new coas

a new coas
with raheel shareef breathing down his neck will there be a new coas...!or will raheel shareef be able to frighten nawaz sharif into retaining him...the frontrunner is regarded as Lt.Gen Ramday number three in the picture...but the other three are equally competent with the no nonsense Lt Gen Ishfaq Nadeem equally considered ...but many say his brusque bluntness may have frightened Nawaz Sharif...the other two Hayat and Bajwa are also just as trustworthy...with hayat having almost two serving Lt.General siblings and a father who was a major general...uptill now it was Nawaz Sharif's decision but now many think Raheel Shareef might want to keep the job...!

lansdgrabbing and bombing fata and foreign trips
some of the favorite pastimes of the army chief seen tobe grabbing land of the poor in karachi and lahore...bombing runs on Fata...and foreign trips...regular once, twice or thrice a month...!some say he also spends ISI funds on himself and even goes to personally buy Semtex...!!

pakistan...
tears have tobe mended...accept diversity and learn that religion can not teach u anything...if u allow everything... all religions and all sects than there will always be conflict because humans will always find a way to increase conflict one way or the other...to control sects have tobe eliminated...india is not a secular state it is a hindu country and conflicts between the hindu and other religions are numerous...even the primeminister fights muslims and other religions...the control there is just the terrorizing nature and overwhelming numerous hindus...pakistan cannot create something new everyday...one system must be created and followed ..the quaid only said that everyone is free to go to their religious places but he did not mention sects and did not say that religions were free to taunt each other and run rampant unbridled in whatever direction...religions must be restricted to mosques, temples and the home...the streets must be free for everybody...!!!

cricket security
the last cricket match that i went to they would not allow my camera or sandwiches...so things have only changed in some ways...the zimbabweans had better remember not to sit on the kerb side of the bus...the terrorists here have no rhyme or reason for their attacks...although they usually donot repeat an attack...!

power crisis

power crisis
is he chasing power the actual sort if shahbaz sharif faulters in the PAT riots case...! coal will only come online in three-four years and the country will need at least 10000MW for any real change to occur...Khawaja Asif has ridden the storm hiding behind his minister of state...not even able to replace the stealing Pesco chief he has blamed the extremely hot weather for the problems this year in the power sector...rains do help but to an extent...

the government attempting another north waziristan cleanup...asfandyar wali wants a straight line corridor...really it will not make any difference if it is connected to Ratodero or multan since a sindh to hasanabdal corridor already exists...the brave Rangers arrest a kid in karachi....zulfikar mirza forgets his sindhi cap...and information minister called a non muslim for calling seminaries a centers of illiteracy...

tooti bhajji hakumat

tooti bhajji hakumat
The PMLn in punjab can at best be described as a tooti bhajji hakumat especially in the context of the rawalpindi metro which does not seem nearing completion...in between the nawaz sharif turkish company started a garbage collection system...they placed wheeled garbage bins all over the place... however the quality of the bins probably the workmanship of the ittefaq foundry was so bad that the bins disappeared overnight while those left behind had broken wheels and dents and were usually lying around on their sides...

the daily war on terror

the daily war on terror
the 2014 year of terror...the politicians never ending trailer war...the system in pakistan is just terror prone...a new army chief justice has taken over...he will hold military trials inside military garrisons...elsewhere the double barrelled shotgun rules ...the gun of choice for security guards...barbed wires and bomb protection for schools...the daily police and ranger raids and FC shootouts...military bombings in fata and the bomb blasts and shootouts...and the winner...army trials and hangings...god save all pakistani's...

The PMLn control withers...
Al Capone...By all accounts the PMLn has conceded defeat in lahore and one can only imagine what will happen on the 18th... with a government that wont implement even minimum law and order measures against a politician(?) gone haywire in his quest for power...if the country is shutdown on the 18th than can Nawaz Sharif survive in power...?

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...

the estranged privaticos

the estranged privaticos
Nawaz sharifs privatisation commission which the photo shows are worried and holding divergent views about the strange privatisations including that of OGDCL shares...a company with over a billion dollars in profits they call offloading...youth loans which seem inherently unpopular can now be gauranteed by a grade 15 government employee...gaurantors dont want the FIA running after them as the youth will in all probability be unable to return the amounts in todays climate...apparently the judges can still pull the rug from under Nawaz Sharifs feet...

military despots

military despots
a Newsline cover in early september depicting the hopeful occupiers of constitution avenue... the two supposed military despots who would hang and jail most politicians left, right and center with corruption trials and confiscations of property,pajeros and palaces...it was not to be as their military sponsors backed out...they would have made the old tinpot dictators look like timid men...!!!

croissants...

croissants...
the dharna they say has given Nawaz Sharif such a headache that he has shifted from nihari-paye to an eggs and croissant breakfast...how will a lahorya be able to tolerate that...however eid has ruined some aspects of the dharna's with some empty tents and Imran khan also looking for qurbani skins..his Shaukat khanum ad says" qurbani for allah but skins for SKMT"...the skins are pretty expensive and used to make even more expensive jackets and shoes although the mqm and the edhi foundation also get skins from their workers and liberals who avoid religious based charities who usually take the most...

beneficial tobe in government

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...

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 mediator

the mediator
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...

degs and sidekicks

degs and sidekicks
degs,sidekicks, sideattractions,mediators, cricket analogies, power arbitrators and a dumb umpire...is nawaz sharif waiting for the sucker punch...!venturing into the punjab...the PPP's cautious two... Zardari flew in from Dubai while aitezaz ahsan from europe where they were waiting for the coup...!! they must think the taleban are now done for ...?

situation changes

situation changes
the dawn says that the attacks on fata could be politically timed to the situation...others say that while zarb arb might have reached a conclusion the americans and Nato keep ordering more attacks...planes have bombed and troops have attacked the taleban...now troops patrol the constitution avenue...will the army one day bomb and open fire on unruly politicos to save a government...Imran Khan might soon test that theory...the dawns depiction of civil obedience seems unrealistic but the situation might have reached that stage with utility bills going out of range and prices skyrocketing...malala seems so unrealistic in this scenario... she was the heroine of the taleban era...the PMLn keeps trying to suggest that the country is faced by many dangers while the imran-qadri duo suggest that it is the sharifs who are more dangerous...!the solution suggested by finance minister crazy qadri...more taxes...!

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

attrition, pressurization...denoument...
continuous attrition...while one does not know what are the objectives of the Azadi march apart from a major demo or a semi violent or even peaceful few weeks in Azadi square...obviously if Nawaz Sharif crumble' s and announces a mid term election after just one year it would be a bonanza for the PTI who expect a better showing although one has not noticed any new election management techniques apart from the raking in of a few small groups...if they could draw in the PPP they could do much better in the big province ...!

the rabble rousers

the rabble rousers
PAT rabble rousers who fought thepolice to a gory end as they refused to allow barricades tobe removed...

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

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing
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...!!!

french revolutionaries

french revolutionaries
the french revolutionaries...finger waving fiery oratory and almost trapeze artists as they swing from one position to the other...both nearing their ultimatum ends and imran khan says he will walk down the constitution avenue hoping police donot fire at him...there can still be tear gas and rioting...below the kings balloon fillers who alongwith abid sher ali have become the biggest failures...

the azadi march

the azadi march
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...

How it all started...coups and politics and islam and democracy...

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...

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...
