muzzling the courts...!

muzzling the courts...!
The sharifs crush the people into the money in their bank accounts...sugar and politics... The LHC escapes the punjab government strangulation and orders the sharifs that they cannot relocate three sugar mills to the south of punjab...they too accuse the sharifs of lying and refusing to obey court orders and attempting to muzzle the courts...!!!

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases
Asif zardari has gotten off for time spent in jail...while others say for getting his wife killed...!

the chakri crook

the chakri crook
the chakri crook...asif zardari looks and behaves like a corrupt politician...! who many think destroyed the Bhutto's especially Benazir Bhutto...has been acquitted in some very high profile corruption references such as the almost undeniable SGS-Cotechna case and illegal assets abroad...!when Benazir Bhutto was asked about the surrey mansion she said zardari probably bought it for his new IB girlfriend...!

gaye bhans politics

gaye bhans politics
punjab does not have much loyalty for a fallen politician according to the past...however Bilawal might still be left with just the tail...!

end of nawaz sharif

end of nawaz sharif
the new primeminister...says he has no new assets since 1980...reportedly owns Airblue...a red wire crosses out nawaz sharif as his photo lies crumpled on the dias...!

political cricket

political cricket...imran khan himself maybe in trouble soon however at teh moment the travails of the sharifs seem to have no end

banigala

banigala
than and now---there were really no trees in banigala...on teh outskirts of rawalpindi and islamabad it was an agricultural area...now however they maybe polluting rawal dam where dead fish have been found this year...

banigala house

banigala house
imrans huge banigala place has many jealous objectors to its hugeness...said tobe 30 canals it still doe snot match the raiwind palace of the sharifs

The SC and article 62...

The SC and article 62...
it might look like a dented judgement to the sharifs but it has a lot of volume and bases...article 62 and 63 were supposedly just for show...however the Panama scandal threw up so much information that the judges found it difficult to avoid blaming the sharifs for corruption, kickbacks, lies and subterfuge...the sharifs could not prove their own cases...there was 120 million each sent to the sharif brothers...the animals gifted to qatari rulers...the sharifs dithered on who owned the panama companies...than there were the Capital FZE lies...the application said he received a 10000 dirhams salary and was chairman but sharif even refused to accept that saying it was subterfuge and Hussein owned the company...he lied to get a residence permit...there were reports of Dirhams 600000 transferred from dubai to london...it was just too much for the judges to accept...and out went the sharifs barring the shahbaz sharifs...!

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...!

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

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...

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 Oct 16-31, 2011

  • Oct31-2011--six killed in US drone attack in north waziristan
  • Oct31-2011--with the PPP in sindh becoming almost a slave to the mqm out of fright and an inability to organize many see teh PPP being tumbled out of politics by the macho streetwise politicians...Imran khan has definitely knocked out teh PMln in lahore although the altaf show was a bit insipid as it focussed on their slavery to asif zardari...many suggest that altaf hussein was teh best example for the "pot calling teh kettle black"...at least teh sharifs came back and did not run away permanently like him...if going to jail is good than why does not he come back and serve his prison sentences...The imran khan views contain some confusion...asset statements for what...they serve no purpose...his willingness to deal with the americans head on is definitely different although one doubts that he will be able to persevere against the nasty meanness of teh americans...he also seems to have problems with economics...increasing taxes is just not too good a idea as all taxes cause price hikes...otherwise many feel that he might at least be able to explain his views having an oxford education...although the PMLn says he has already built a pound 700000 home from charitable contributions...his liking for the fata pukhtuns is admirable but explaining their violent attitudes is not...if he wont beg when in government than he will be able to keep teh peoples support...although the PPP could knock out some of his views by changing their policy on just drones...obviously if anyone prioritizes solutions to the electricity problems than some sanity could return to living in pakistan...not going to war with the people of pakistan is a good idea although he should realize that the army is needed in many aspects of foreign relations...his reputation of a right wing extremist and being indian natured many say still persists...his views on china and increasing taxation seem tobe similar to the PPP...many think he should hone his policies and not fall into typical policy fiasco areas like we will develop education and textiles and be friends with china and increase tax collections and have an independent foreign policy...it seems that he also wants to come into government and than attempt to develop some sort of governance politics
  • Oct30-2011--the general analysis is that the PPP has lost its ability to organize street protests and it has hired a london crazy to do its job...baber awan, firdous ashiq and rehman malik seem an ineffective unpopular trio flailing away at opponents...rehman malik had flown to london to arrange teh mqm meeting even before the PMLn meeting...so the hoopla against the shabaz invectives was also just a show... baber awan, khosa and sharjeel memon have been attacking teh PMLn for months now...many suggest that the PPP with its burning of PMLn offices, price and tax hikes and refusal to handle situations like teh floods, electricity and gas shortages is a danger for democracy as is teh mqm's ethnic seperatism/terrorism and suppression of political opponents of all kinds in karachi ...many doubt that teh PMLn can topple the PPP by january but others suggest that teh PPP might itself be ready for elections after the senate elections as teh PPP's minority mandate has expired with the death of nusrat bhutto...zardari many say has gained very little respect with his sindhi mentality and shabaz sharif only suggested that the people might hang him upside down if he did not move on...the PMLn now suggests that zardari means swiss/SGS corruption and is the public face of teh PPP's loot and plunder and the people in street protests could hang him upside down...Firdous ashiq awan negated her own thesis by calling shabaz sharif a mad man...with altaf also pro military coups an undemocratic event could easily however take place as the politicians getting over the threats of taleban terrorism...iftikahar chaudhry aproved the previous coup......however others think that the failed PPP governance is the probable cause and elections could be held sooner than later and political groups are starting to brandish their street power in the face of a PPP losing support at a much faster rate than earlier thought...many think that if the PMLn is game dissolving the punjab assembly and calling fresh elections in punjab early could finally burst teh PPP bubble...a spanner in teh wheel...could stop the wheel or break it...?
  • Oct30-2011--The mqm's anti punjabism came to teh fore quickly as they started to hype( on zardari's orders) about shabaz sharifs language...can altaf hussein comment on waseem akhters comment "mujra's going on in all punjabis homes"...shabaz sharif cant have been as dirty as the mqm methinks...zardari is known in the punjab as a zia ul haq spy let lose on teh unwary bhuttos...and is known on the internet by various epithets...both altaf and zardari often referred to as devils and jhinn/bhoots......altaf now can be called the naukar of jagirdar zardari...and his henchman rehman malik...? article 6 applies to the mqm tactics of attempted secession...and can hardly be applied to political rhetoric of any form or type...PPP and mqm seem unable to tolerate teh PMLn's mudslinging while willing to forget all the murders and terrorism committed in karachi by the PPP/MQM...
  • Oct29-2011--when the situation becomes troublesome test fire a missile was teh military governments solution as military brass stare into the sky...pakistan tested a multiple cruise missile launcher(ala the iranians...)pakistan they say has copied a US tomahawk cruise missile many of which landed in balochistan when over 400 were fired at afghanistan in a day
  • Oct29-2011--13 killed in south waziristan drone attack
  • Oct29-2011--the PMLn jalsa made headlines as the PPP worried about teh anti zardari tone...The PMLn did not suggest resignations but asked asif zardari an isolated sindhi with no influence elsewhere to move on before he is hanged upside down in street protests...asif zardari they say gets up at eight before his alcoholic groggy puffy eyed primeminister and rushes off in the official plane to karachi or sukkur or nawabshah...Gilani they say gets to his office around twelve......some started to talk about teh possibility of an egyptian style protest in parliament square islamabad but pakistanis not considerd too politically aware/adept to have that sort of perseverance to topple a government that way...many say the PMln wants elections soon while the PPP might be ready for them a year down the line..many say PMLn politics which has been hurt by the dengue outbreak and almost no populist policies like teh PPP needs to touch bases with their supporters who are becoming wary of the unreal nature of teh PPP and PMLn...many say that shahbaz sharif should realize that mosquito sprays needed in all surrounding lahore areas and teh rest of punjab too...federal government too should mount a polio like campaign to eradicate teh more troublesome dengue...
  • Oct28-2011--crime fighting nowshera SHO dies in a suicide blast while apparently travelling in a pajero...?
  • Oct28-2011--Rehman Malik seems to lack an understanding of democracy...is friendly with karachi terrorist altaf hussein but worried about a jalsa by teh PMLn(apparently only rehman malik and altaf hussein had any influence on karachis political killers...?)Altaf hussein has been behind almost all the troublemaking(violence,ethnic warfare,nogo areas,bomb blasts, terrorism, murders, killing) in karachi for teh last 23 years...altaf hussein the supposed ethnic revolutionary exiled in england for almost 15 years is now considered little more than a dum chala for the interior minister and the wadera type asif zardari...
  • Oct28-2011--Another zardari tax being initiated after the Rs4 on electricity...now they want another 40 billion from a new gas tax...
  • Oct28-2011--mullah nazeer brother and ten others killed in drone attack in north/south waziristan
  • Oct28-2011--Hilary Clinton continues to harp on a supposed dialogue which does not seem possible...unless pakistan has custody of mullah omar...the pakistanis influence if any has been severely undermined by their lack of influence on teh USA, taleban and drone attacks...a dialogue is usually initiated by contacts with the rivals as teh US well knows and they usually take place in neutral locations where the taleban would have complete protection...in the past the US has used various methods including direct talks with teh chinese and vietnamese...in this situation just initiating talks would be difficult with the US still on the warpath...if the haqqanis are influential than attacking them would be counterproductive too any negotiations...without their safety ensured who is going to come to teh talks..
  • Oct28-2011--many think that the railways minister is just trying to create opportunities for corruption...with 100 engines lying around he should order the engineers and workers to repair them...if it is that difficult get some help from the armies tank rebuild factory who have the knowhow to repair diesel engines...railway engines have just a diesel engine and a rotating mechanism...the railways has been repairing its own engines since 1947...they say railways have several places like moghulpura in lahore where engine repair is done...when railways has the capabilities to build and assemble engines than repairing should not be a difficult task...get to it bilour or go home...
  • Oct27-2011--intruding US helicopters fired upon 5 kilometers inside pakistan territory
  • Oct27-2011--BBC according to Dawn says that the pakistanis provide the afghan taleban with weapons and hiding places, training and suicide bombers...the information seems inaccurate as the taleban need to hide in afghanistan and with even google able to monitor everything a big training camp seems tobe out of teh question...
  • Oct27-2011--The federal government(read that sindh government) which has made divide and rule a constitutional provision now has four more ministries...National heritage and Integration,food security,disaster management, national regulations and services...Bijarani made minister for interprovincial coordination...the slow moving lethargy of the PPP evident in everything...many suggest that all these issues are the primeministers job and he clearly states that i cant handle my responsibilities..Gilani has been slow in handling most issues and usually sometimes after three years has the riposte ..i handled that too...he obviously hopped off on another foreign tour...Gilani's abilities seem little more than speech making in teh national assembly
  • Oct27-2011--two police officers involved in the kharotabad incident sacked despite evidence that they shot dead terrorists in cold blood...balochistan now has a winter capital--the lifeless gwadar and all cancer patients are treated free...?
  • Oct27-2011--workers particularly of teh state sector type are a vanishing and useless breed...it seems that they cant really run things or work efficiently...ie without new airplanes and vanishing railway engines(they had three hundred and are left with only 75)...maybe the loco shed workers should have their salaries tripled so that they can repair the engines...or get some retired railway workers back to make them work...the railways has been unable to handle engines and salary and pay for electricity...one railway pensioner died in lahore waiting for his pension
  • Oct26-2011--AJK CJ shot and injured as four die in lower Dir bomb blast
  • Oct26-2011--PMLn might be more amenable now to take along other parties such as teh likeminded PMLq, PMLq and teh JI or even the JUIf...many suggest that in a coup scenario or military toppling someone like Humayun Akhter Khan who is being propagated as a serious handler of issues might be become the frontal face of an ISI/military intrigue...PMLn seems able to handle PMLq-PPP joint candidates better as one of teh two is usually miffed at the others candidate
  • Oct26-2011--Saudi Arabia might soon have a new king as well as a crown prince as King Abdullah has medical problems too...longtime internal security handler Prince Nayef could soon be the king as he is supposedly to takeover as crown prince in the exceptionally large saudi royal family where rulers have dozens of children and wifes...
  • Oct26-2011--many suggest that the PPP is nearing teh end of its rule as despite not being short of funds railway pensioners who are generally old and frail made to wait days and nights at banks for their pensions...the last PPP regime was kicked out after reserves had fallen to 300 million dollars...
  • Oct26-2011--so frightened is the US of islamic villains rising from their graves that qaddhafi and son buried in a unlocateable desert grave...that follows the burial of ossama ben laden at sea...
  • Oct26-2011--The US says that afghans to hold talks with teh taleban...while US to provide operational guidelines and the villaineous pakistanis to force teh taleban to teh table..?
  • Oct26-2011--PPP government supporting moonis elahis extortion attempts say the ex FIA chief as reports disappear and accused allowed to flee teh country...says 630 million recovered while 420 milion still tobe recovered...the desperate Gilani apparently congratulated moonis elahi...?
  • Oct25-2011--u can now order a qurbani ka bakra home delivered on teh internet from symbios.pk while in lahore the government offers free airconditioned transport to goat selling points outside teh city...progress and development..eh..!!
  • Oct25-2011--Karzai and hilary clinton backtrack...karzai had said that they would fight the USA if they attacked pakistan and hilary had threatened pakistan with dire actions which many suggested to mean the breaking off aid and bombing fata...
  • Oct25-2011--Taseer murder case judge a shiite sent abroad after supposed potential threats...many say religious fanatics unable to provide any justification for murder on the basis of blasphemy...the governor who like many in teh PPP attempted tobe a liberal was not guilty of blasphemy and only urged sympathy for a christian woman accused...supposedly teh mqm has murdered over 150 policemen over teh last 15 years for participation in a campaign to subdue the mqm's destructive and murderous politics in karachi
  • Oct24-2011--with gas shortages already being felt teh sindhi natured regimes methods of controlling shortages will figure in how they are perceived...at the moment they seem tobe acting after rather than before with almost open attempts at strangling the punjab economy...The PMLn which is the strongest party in punjab is not known tobe frightened of the emerging challenger imran khan as they see that causing teh PPP more problems as the have been a diehard opponent of imran khan's cancer and bhakari politics...punjab usually is swayed by the party that is expected to win which causes votes to swing towards the most powerful punjab party...with teh center being turned into a useless military base the provinces are likely tobe ever more inclined to ethnic voting...
  • Oct24-2011--An indian lama helicopter strayed into pakistani territory for more than twenty kilometers before it was brought down...near skardu...however the militaries weakness strategically in the region saw it returned teh same day
  • Oct24-2011--Nusrat Bhutto an iranian socialite who led the initial resistance against Zia Ul haq's martial law died in Dubai...Not able to save her husband from the army she quit politics and lived in Dubai for most of teh time since 1982...Thus ends the Bhutto dynasty which despite the armies and muslim leagues murderous opposition survived in a way for almost forty years...she is the only one of teh bhutto family to die naturally...ZAB was nurtured by ayub khan with whom he split after teh tashkent agreement and formed the PPP at that time a relatively populist party which had almost no opposition initially...but industrialists/muslim leaguers/NAP/303(that he fired for corruption) worked for his elimination and teh PPP was steadily occupied by the wealthy agricultural class with workers/people only good for votes...methinks her worst decision was to make Benazir marry asif zardari who many think served as their nemesis..
  • Oct23-2011--Pakistan protests Hilary Clintons nasty comments and refuses to squeeze the haqqanis...?Pakistan ready to play ball and facilitate negotiations with no gaurantees...pakistan suggests that running the afghan army would require a billion rupees double that of teh pakistan army..one doubts that the US would fund an afghan army to that extent after teh US leaves and the pakistanis fear well equiped splinter groups forming in afghanistan...unless the taleban join the government and agree to behave in a disciplined manner things will be troublesome in afghanistan for a long time...
  • Oct23-2011--in the second gujranwala led violent protests students set on fire teh education board building after days of protests...The punjab government asked all boards to reexamine teh papers of intermediate part 1 2011...gujranwala had also led the power riots recently
  • Oct23-2011--The PPP regime which is at best grappling with one issue after another issued 4 billion to the railways after protests...the railways will probably need a minimum of 20-30 billiont o run on teh present pattern...The PPP wants to hoard the government revenues while suggesting other means for railways to earn money...railway workers who used to repair engines quite efficiently seem to be not working properly...The government should force changes in management and maintenance procedures...or bring back some british railway management experts who designed teh system or even retired pakistani railway officials to keep the engines moving
  • Oct23-2011--Aftab Sultan becomes the inefficient IB's head
  • Oct23-2011--Chaudhry Nisar moves SC on improper appointment of teh NAB chief
  • Oct22-2011--with zardari supporters being kicked out by the qaim group many suggest that zardari is aiming for his mildish sister to takeover as sindh chief minister...the PPP has been unable to handle teh sindh situation and in teh fourth year they are yet to see any understanding for their pro mqm policy...PPP afraid of putting up a party candidate against zulfikar mirza's son as there is teh pressure of fehmida mirza as well
  • Oct22-2011--In another fiasco reports suggest that Hilary Clinton raved and ranted at the pakistani PM and military bosses and wanted action in days and weeks...The pakistanis who are known for their bigheaded nature are now in a fix as they have little or no influence on the haqqanis or the taleban...many suggest that gilani or zardari had earlier suggested that the taleban would be dealt with in six months...three or four years later the situation is somewhat better on teh terrorism front but not on the economic/taleban fronts and most kiyani scenarios have not materialised...many say that teh ISI suggested that the americans fight their own battles in afghanistan as the pakistanis were wary of crossing even teh afghan border...threats that seem tobe looming are american aerial bombardments and obviously the usual stoppage of aid...the americans continue to think that we are subjugated minions not willing to obey orders...
  • Oct22-2011--In another major change teh PPP regime fell off its high horse and acquitted Moonis Elahi who had ripped off NICL to the tune of over 320 million...
  • Oct22-2011--In a major change the remaining zardari loyalist the IG sindh was transfered to the position of IG motorway...with a reputation for killing politicians means that politicians had better be wary of travelling on his highways...Wajid Durrani has been on the transfer track since he was IG islamabad...initially he was made DG IB but that was quickly changed to the less innocuous position...a new DG IB has also taken over who might hopefully be better than the first two PPP appointees who have been utter failures in their jobs
  • Oct21-2011--PMLn opposition leader to raise teh issue of a lack of consultation in real terms in the SC...Asif zardari said he had not raised teh issue of teh Admirals corruption...everybody now regards admirals tobe quite corrupt..many suggest that chaudhry nisar had asked for an intelligence assessment of teh admiral but had been denied access...!!
  • Oct21-2011--with Irsa hell bent on reducing hydel power generation teh PPP finally took a step to ease electricity shortages by involving teh wapda chief in teh water release decision making...many have urged a strategy of giving electricity generation priority over conserving dam water for needless agriculture especially in teh winter months...
  • Oct21-2011--The pakistan army finally went after the bara terrorists killing 34 and losing five soldiers...The pakistan army seems reluctant to take action in the more open areas while perfectly happy to fight in teh remoter places
  • Oct21-2011--As the US loses friends willing to fight a losing war morally in afghanistan Hilary Clinton still thinks the solution lies in the pakistan army attempts at thrashing its own tribals..many suggest that teh US really needs a Henry Kissinger who would have been ready to parachute into the taleban stronghold in kandahar..even Condoleeza Rice was a better strategist...many suggest that teh US look for a male secretary of state...One tv channel referred to Hilary Clinton insultingly as pakistan ki saas...mother in laws never have good relations with pakistan...the only way is for teh american army to fight it out in afghanistan...no real safe haven has been found in the pakistani tribal areas yet...although one does wonder where all teh trucks of ammunition are coming from...the taleban have made the US and pakistan look like ordinary fighters with small groups embarassing and doing enough damage to keep the US interested or hooked ..the US should look at teh Nato strategy in libya where they stopped bombing the day qaddafi died...The US has to clear its head of confusion and realize that Ossama is dead and there mission accomplished...move on many say...no outside country has ever rebuilt another country and the help wanted to "fight build and talk" seems a lame argument...u can only talk or fight...
  • Oct21-2011--They say Gilani trembling in his boots as Hilary called teh ISI a bunch of crooks led by teh bahawalpuri badmash...!!!Hilary threatened the taleban in afghanistan that they should be ready for a fight soon as teh wobbly legged US army wants to get home quickly...many suggest that if teh US army had gone after teh taleban in their strongholds things might have been different...The US army would have been back home or the taleban decimated...many think she is trying to frighten the pakistanis into backing out from supporting teh taleban...
  • Oct20-2011--As the PPP seems tobe losing support in teh punjab at a much faster rate than previously imagined raja riaz, latif khosa and sharjeel memon(all three generally anti punjab) play teh corruption card against the troubled dengue inflicted shabaz sharif and the ever more popular nawaz sharif...sharif senior many say failed to get teh support of teh PMLq and MQM even for a non PMLn premier...they forget that raja riaz was a senior minister in the PMln cabinet during teh sasti roti scheme which failed to gain popularity due to it being lahore based and not universal...spemding ten billion per year on providing teh poor with affordable roti would be more a PPP scheme than an industrialists charity sop to the people...almost similar to the PPP's BISP which does not cover even a minor portion of teh poverty stricken...such schemes are selective and not based on teh entire populations needs...it would be much better to reduce prices for electricity, wheat and milk...
  • Oct20-2011--Gilani says Rehman Malik lying about plot to kidnap Bilawal...many suggest that Gilani might be behind some recent criminal events...others suggest that sindhs emerging strongman phoned zardari...return him to dubai or...
  • Oct20-2011--Gilani has an upside down mind...he does'nt listen to altaf hussein asking for military intervention and a crooked mohajir revolution but finds it troubling when teh PMLn tries to prick the gilani-zardari dictatorship by suggesting that elections be held or the punjab asembly be dissolved for new elections there at least...it is democratic to ask for new elections but criminal to even suggest military coups like teh crooked matawast tabqati altaf hussein...the people are already fed up with the revolutionaries like Gilani,zardari, taleban, mqm etc. and dont want anymore of the kind who can only mean more trouble for the populace...many suggest that the punjabis should be wary of the crooked anti punjabis like latif khosa,altaf hussein and baber awan...
  • Oct19-2011--As the US increased drone attacks and the US military buildup continued across from north waziristan Kiani told a group of parliamentarians that he did not have a plan how to counter a US aerial and ground assault or even a sneak commando raid but hoped teh US would stay away from pakistans internal areas...upto now teh US has not obeyed kianis orders and left them stupefied without a reaction as they raided abbottabad...many are suggesting that the army and airforce have clear plans to counter any attack whether from the US, afghanistan , india or taleban...The DG military operations says that 80 % of the indian armed force is lined up on our borders including seven of their nine commands and three strike corps and 81% of their forward bases...many have suggested that the indian SU 30 aircraft can penetrate pakistan easily against teh slow pakistan air defence mechanism..one parliamentary committee refused to attend teh briefing saying it should have been held in the national assembly
  • Oct18-2011--In the bara area 14 militants killed and 9 Fc men...In orakzai militants kill five in an ambush
  • Oct18-2011--load shedding restarts as outflows from dams are restricted and gilani(phir andon pe beth gaya...)
  • Oct18-2011--railway workers block train movements for ten hours on teh context of non payment of salaries...The PPP apparently cant run many things...the power system...the sindhi-mohajir divide in karachi, terrorism--interior minister says he only protects vip's...price hikes,the railways which can at best run a few trains for tourism safaris...obviously frightened to even starighten out the provinces even when they are on killing sprees...obviously appointments have been a big problem to them as they continuously run out of shiites...ie from multan...and monetary allocations from teh budget...bari takleef hoti he sindhyon ko agar punjab ko kuch allocate ho jaye...handling the USA, india and afghanistan has always been a problem anyway...than there are drones , baloch liberation movements, hazaras killings, cross border attacks by fazlullah...? really the PPP should realize that things dont solve themselves...
  • Oct18-2011--The opposition leader to move teh SC on the incomplete process of an admiral being appointed to the NAB...the article 6 suggests that a lt general can be made the head of NAB but not an admiral(sic)...zardari probably also does not know the meaning of lt. general ie apart from consultation...what teh sindhis do at petaro is now apparent to everyone...
  • Oct17-2011--railway workers who wont repair locomotives and are probably also looting electricity threaten to shutdown the railways which the pukhtun minister who is literally trying to destroy a supposedly vital means of transport especially cargo...as electricity is disconnected to stations and railway colonies
  • Oct17-2011--The uneducated Zardari could not handle consultancy with the opposition leader as usual...they go to extreme lengths to consult and pamper altaf hussein(unconstitutionally) but cannot follow a simple constitutional obligation...as usual the sindhi natured PPP cannot do anything right...In a sneak and underhand manner the controversial Fasih Bokhari took office in the middle of the night...considered a stubborn mule by nawaz sharif no apparent consultation was visible but the dubiousness of chaudhry Nisar who is being wooed by teh PPP and teh dengue victim shahbaz sharif seem tobe backing off from taking the issue to the SC...The PPP practices its dictatorial nature and deviousness on the PMLn for no apparent reason...while going the extra mile with crooks such as altaf hussein and the mqm...
  • Oct17-2011--The altaf hussein challenge to teh PMLn and a deflated PPP in the punjab was launched on the basis of lies that cases against him were political...obviously he would have been back home by now if the cases were not based on his criminal actions...he tried to woo the army which the mqm was bitterly opposed to and at war with in karachi...many suggest that altaf hussein is the most cowardly political leader in the country...many others also ran away but they had the courage to come back when teh situation changed...That included asif zardari, benazir, Nawaz, Shabaz, mustafa khar etc....nobody ran away for good and than claimed that they were middle class when many of their mna's are industrialists...which matawast tabka leader runs politics from london...he obviously does not realize that in punjab only dogs, thieves and djinns gp out at night...many suggest that altaf hussein locks himself up in an apartment in london rarely going out during night or day...In punjab the mohajir support is based mostly on east punjabis and kashmiris who are generally followers of nawaz sharif also a mohajir...however here the immigrants remained loyal to pakistan and the muslim league as opposed to karachi where they had loyalty only for religious and ethnic groups and opposed the military and police but were friendly with coup plotters...most urdu speakers and biharis ran off to karachi from the punjab ...so altaf can at best bank on teh support of some mohajir concentrations such as in islamabad and probably other migrants to punjab such as pukhtuns and tribals...many doubt that he can challenge the three bigger parties in the punjab but will obviously try to get a few seats off the PPP thru charity and threats of troublemaking in karachi
  • Oct16-2011--Zardari who is supposedly very cooperative in karachi turns into a stubborn mule when he arrives in islamabad...while perfectly happy to fly off to london and telephone/negotiate with ethnic terrorists like altaf hussein he does not even talk to or even meet the opposition leader who lives in rawalpindi what to talk of discussing an important appointment
  • Oct16-2011--around 3000 people in fata have been killed in drone attacks which are supposedly jointly managed by teh CIA and the ISI
  • Oct16-2011--pakistani airstrikes kil 10 in orakzai while US drone strikes kill three in south waziristan

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 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...

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...

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...!

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...

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 ...!

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...

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...

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...
