political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Dec 01-15, 2011

  • Dec13-2011--soldier killed in north waziristan as the years 17th bank robbery takes place in karachi..!and in rawalpindi CNG stations and teh IHC cutoff gas all day in outlying rawalpindi areas for the past week...
  • Dec13-2011--In the PTI conflicts emerged as new entrants rabble roused with old entrants...As Imran Khan has to answer a lot of questions he replaced his information secretary with an old war horse... former senator Shafqat Mahmud who has been on a long journey from the beaurocracy..when he was Benazir Bhuttos principle secretary..he than moved to teh PPP..became a political analyst...his last move..the PMLn where he brought the beaurocrats back into power as commissioners and knocked out the local body nazims...from Rahimyar Khan he probably is getting near to being in a politically important position
  • Dec13-2011--hina Rabbani Khar states that they cannot be held responsible for an afghan refugee who stayed at rabbanis state guest house
  • Dec13-2011--Gilani as usual drags in teh international community frightened of handling afghanistan on his own...the military was toppled from teh envoys conference since pakistan does not have teh courage to retaliate directly or covertly...and teh envoys who prefer to talk want a renegotiation of the war in afghanistan...that involves a lengthy process since it involves the Lugar aid, capitulation of musharaf, support funds and the afghan pipeline...teh US in the interim has threatened to cutoff $700 million in aid if IED making is not stopped but stopped drone attacks...the US spook Panetta still talks of winning in afghanistan and teh pakistanis prefer that they talk to teh taleban and withdraw as early as possible...many say all the pakistanis want is an apology so that they can get back to licking US boots as usual...since they cannot even stop crossovers of fertilizer into afghanistan...if any aid is stopped than pakistan should also go for a cutoff as the process of US-pakistan relations has become meaningless with teh US doing whatever they want and pakistan being dragged along..The petty US nature is apparent from some senator suggesting that fertilizer factories in pakistan are responsible for IED's...the afghans have a long history of making munitions locally and they can obviously use other explosive materials...bomb making in conflict situations is not controlled by the head office...The envoys however also suggested that overflights by teh US military should be limited
  • Dec13-2011--problems mounted for Asif Zardari as his utility was shown to be inconsequential as teh french submarine scandal also loomed although many doubt that teh commission mafia could go for a terrorist attack...many suggest that the attack on teh french submarine bus was more indian in thinking...at best many said it was carried out by sindhi religious radicals...The acting president also clearly told Gilani that attacking teh country by envoys such as haqqani should be stopped immediately as many suggested that pakistani treacherous characters could supposedly even call in US attacks such as teh ones on teh mohmand posts..many see the PPP as backing out from dealing seriously with treacherous characters because they might be Asif zardari's friends...
  • Dec13-2011--Just the sectarian/tribal blood letting in parachinar has resulted in 1100 casaulties with teh army scared to interfere in local squabbles...
  • Dec13-2011--the government riddled with sugar barons wants to buy sugar at an above market price as its price is falling as demand falls...The government had last year allowed sugar prices to almost triple before they fell to present levels recently...there is definitely a lot of variation in different types of sugar and the same price for all is obviously manupulation and creation of a monopoly gang...a representative of sugar mills was illegally allowed to participate in the ECC meeting...most sugar barons are immensely rich guys and can afford to pay teh price for feed stock...sugar wholesale prices have fallen to Rs49 after almost two years of profit making...
  • Dec13-2011--The pakistani situation is clearly depicted when the president runs away for some secret illness and the national assembly speaker runs away to be with her husband a PPP dissident...One has not seen any interim/acting president even which is a constitutional requirement..
  • Dec13-2011--Pakistan will never learn how to conduct international diplomacy unless it realizes that it is a sovreign country...Study teh history of US-pakistan relations from teh fifties to the present....during this period american ambassadors have been running the country at times and even now US aid is dispensed thru teh US ambassador rather than teh pakistani government...approvals have been sought for primeministerial and army appointments and even political change...and now we have been reduced to just a pipe for afghanistan...pakistan must learn not to fall into US traps and not be browbeaten at any levels of government and teh armed forces...US officials have been regularly derogatory and insulting about/to pakistani army/ISI chiefs and politicians...and what they do to those on the CIA payroll one can hardly guess...indian afficionada Sherry Rehman will have to realize that she has tobe upfront and not allow US power to dazzle and subjugate...There can hardly be any respect and balance between a superpower and a country that is at best isolated in teh world and usually embarassed to even state its own objectives and prefers subjugation for reasons of security and development...The US has long used these levers to subdue pakistani governments and one can hardly expect them to change and accept pakistan after what they have done to us...the government must not accept US lies because it is inferior in military power and its projection...There would have been no reason for the US to invade afghanistan if pakistan could have done it first...even now the situation would improve if we retaliated and captured territory in areas of border violations...There is no need for an army and airforce when we can hardly react to invasions and literally elimination of our soldiers on our own borders...since the pakistani position on aid(USAID) and the US presence in afghanistan is self serving they will eventually be subdued...respect is only a attitude and usually subjugating and to present ones views openly and clearly we have to overcome our fears of opening our mouths and not be afraid of derogatory attitudes from US roughnecks...as afghanistan has never been friendly and the government there has quite literally an indianized attitude...in fact one can probably say that teh indians/manmohan probably define what Karzai says in anti pakistan utterances...The US has a wrong attitude to pakistan because of teh way we have handled afghanistan since Oliver North...who will respect u when all u want is money to do their bidding...
  • Dec12-2011--Rehman malik turns turtle...he had recently called for a coalition with the taleban but now says no negotiations being conducted with maulvi faqir who had said that an agreement in bajaur could be a model for other fata areas...he had also said that teh government had released 186 of his men...
  • Dec12-2011--According to Gilani/PPP logic all areas of pakistan have been victimised barring central and northern punjab...with the PPP and PMLq fortunes dipping fast the Gilani section of teh PPP might move a constitutional change petition in teh national assembly for a dubious seraiki province...at teh moment they donot have teh votes and it would be a political gimmick at best...theoretically no new province can be created barring some changes in the borders of a province...The issue too is subjudice with the LHC which is holding two important cases in limbo...
  • Dec12-2011--the government says that Asif Zardari may not be returning soon ie not by Dec 19 when teh SC takes up the memo case...that could be one of the reasons that Asif Zardari exited the country with such haste...Asif zardari and hussein haqqani are considered the main culprits while some suggest that Admiral Mullen may have broached teh subject with General Kiani prior to the Ossama adventure...it is said that teh Kiani-Mullen divide than ocurred who were supposedly friends before that... Mullen than started to critisize Kiani rather than Pasha and said that Kiani was not reliable...Asif zardari and hussain haqqani and probably others in teh government including teh ISI chief were also recently reported to have been informed of teh abbottabad attack but took no action nor did they consult teh armed forces...the abbottabad attack and the recent helicopter wipeout of two bases showed pakistans woeful defence on the western border...and obviously the hate and vindictiveness that teh US holds for pakistan...
  • Dec12-2011--another two mpa's moving to the PTI...one from attock and one from nowshera...!
  • Dec12-2011--Pakistan in a face saving measure got its Shamsi airbase vacated from teh US which some say was just a midway house used early on for drone operations...nine nato oil tankers were gutted and a driver killed in Bolan district...despite all the problems created for pakistan by USA the pro US Gilani still hopeful of restarting the Nato supply line...many suggest that pakistan should take a permanent break from its childish addiction to being a US stooge...The government says 34 US soldiers stationed at the Shamsi Base which many think were involved in covert activities in teh volatile rebellious province...
  • Dec11-2011--According to dawn Bilawal Zardari has changed his views that democracy is enough...he now thinks that Asif Zardari should have reacted more strongly to the religious militant killings of Benazir and Salman Taseer..The PPP's appeasement of religious radicalism and their terrorist attacks has given their top leaders some respite from terrorist killings...and a relative reduction in terrorism...They now are said tobe negotiating with elements in the taleban...?In fact some PPP ministers were openly supporting the elimination of teh governor on religious grounds...he is not very different from his father and is going along with the suspect nature of their alliances..on teh other hand Nawaz Sharif vows to find Benazirs killers...
  • Dec11-2011--The courts could soon decide that party leaders cannot keep their posts when they become presidents or primeministers or chief ministers...?
  • Dec11-2011--nato vehicles clogg karachi port as political killings continue in karachi as do what many see as local bomb blast...
  • Dec10-2011--the provincial natured PPP has not given a single job to locals in CDA since 2008...all 1066 employees come from other provinces...!!politicians from larkana and multan are now regarded as petty natured in distributing finances across teh country in an even handed manner...
  • Dec10-2011--power pylon blown up near peshawar..
  • Dec10-2011--pakistans decision to put up an air defence over teh western border is questionable many say...as they neither have enough stingers nor seem willing to use teh airforce's technical capability off an aerial radar system...even on teh eastern border air defence is teh responsibility of teh airforce...many suggest that the only way is to call in air support when an attack occurs...either that or we bomb out any afghan or US post nearby after teh attack...balochistan has also decide to stop nato vehicles passing thru due to the problems they create...
  • Dec10-2011--three rangers die in karachi as their vehicle was hit by an IED or a remote bomb blast...there have been a series of minor explosions in karachi over teh last few days
  • Dec10-2011--Pakistans apeasement oriented Gilani who could not even order an attack on drones invading teh country daily now says there will be a fierce riposte to any further attacks...pakistans weak subordinate natured armed forces have refused to react to most invasions by teh US...however Martin Dempsey says US in afghanistan to reduce pakistans clout...many however suggest that pakistans clout is not government oriented and is due to teh invasion by the US and teh political situation in afghanistan...many suggest that teh afghan taleban retaliate for pakistan inside afghanistan when pakistan is bombed...!!
  • Dec10-2011--Asif Zardari has all but been replaced by a young immature kid many say...zardari who has a reputation of running away when the going gets tough was reported tobe incoherent and had some sort of other problems...obviously teh rumours were true as an ordinary illness does not require even frightened individuals who even have personal physicians to go to dubai which is not very well known for medical care...
  • Dec9-2011--The government has been providing almost free electricity to over 300000 tubewells as teh people suffer load sheddings while the agriculture community is unnecessarily pampered with price hikes...The tubewells consume over 14% electricity and are a major cause of load fluctations alongwith industry...government should allow normal releases from dams during canal closures rather than cause problems for the people
  • Dec9-2011--DGMO says that the two mohmand border posts obliterated by US attacks were well defined and could not be mistaken for militant outposts and there wasnt any militant activity/crossings in teh area although there have been attacks from afghanistan...pakistan also withdrew 19 of its 31 joint border coordination officers who have not been effective... in stopping attacks on pakistan by US officers...Joint coordination border efforts were initiated by the same military duo in the ISI/GHQ...several years ago...
  • Dec9-2011--uranium which is a grain in teh sand for australia where india is concerned not available to pakistan for which it becomes a rock or boulder...!!
  • Dec9-2011--One of PPP's waris characters has apparently collapsed with an unmentionable illness and has disappeared to Dubai(a PPP safe haven) with a chorus of "he will return"...the PPP has become at best a party of ravers and ranters who have refused to study or solve problems until they become unmanageable...the same can be said about Asif Zardari who has been forced on teh country as an interim waris with little influence in teh punjab where there have been some party calls to activate Bilawal instead...!!...the first evidence of the second waris apparently taking over came as he tried to perpetuate family dynasties and force another Gilani on teh unwary punjab and attended a PPP governmental meeting...albeit in multan rather than in larkana...he is apparentally not teh child/children that Asif Zardari has gone to spend time with...!!!many donot see much respect for democracy unless teh system of entrenched families is dismantled...many suggest that to save democracy only one character per family be allowed into teh national and provincial assemblies...It is not as if the teeming millions donot create enough choices for new candidates or people with new ideas who are the life and blood of a democracy...It will eventually many say lead to a political spring here too....many point to the PPP's apparent hiding of the memo criminal hussain haqqani in the presidency and primeminister houses...
  • Dec9-2011--in a way the people of whichever persuasion retaliated against teh mohmand attacks by gutting 34 Nato trailers in a trailer park in quetta..many have seen the PPP and military as having refused to retaliate despite there being enough evidence that teh US is literally attacking pakistan...
  • Dec8-2011--The CDA chief who oversaw the return to slow creeping plodding development(a PPP economic miracle with trillions in revenues)transferred and replaced by farkhand iqbal...the previous regime had literally forced a faster development...
  • Dec8-2011--a federal minister Samina Ghurki's trust hospital received over 30 million to treat seven hepatitis patients...from the Baitul Maal...?
  • Dec8-2011--pakistans relations with the US deteriorated further as Ghulam nabi fai pleaded guilty in a US court to recieving ISI funds and working on their orders...he forfeited four bank accounts...
  • Dec8-2011--with teh US increasingly uncooperative pakistan moving to vacate border posts that it cannot defend..!
  • Dec8-2011--azam swati quits JUI-f and resigns from teh senate...
  • Dec8-2011--iranians shoot dead three pakistani fishermen in the open sea of jiwani..The iranians are quite spooky as reports of a US attack esxcalate..iran says that US sentinel drone was almost 300 kilometers inside their territory...while press reports say that US has been routinely flying drones over iran for many years...with sattelites able to see almost everything on teh ground drones are generally useless for intelligence gathering...
  • Dec8-2011--In what can happen in a day...the controversial asif zardari raced off to dubai in suspicious circumstances as reports appeared of health problems and obviously a clear suspicion of pakistans health community...reports from allover however started coming in that he might have gone for good amid the memo controversy, mohmand attacks and reports of resigning...an informal PPP meeting showed Bilawal in a chaddar playing second fiddle to the equally problem prone Gilani...reports suggested heart problems while many say that with the US continually creating problems for pakistan the regionally isolated pakistan may well have decided to change course..with rehman malik suggesting a partnership with teh taleban(to terrorize teh peopel together...)...obviously the military might not be very happy at suggestions that zardari asked teh US to get rid of his militaries top duo while other reports suggesting that asif zardari did not ask his military to tackle the May2 US invasion despite knowing of teh attack...others suggest that the military would also have knowledge of teh attack including teh ISI given their closeness to teh US...many have critisized the military and PPP for allowing literally unparalleled drone attacks and doing nothing while the US brazenly picked up Ossama Ben Laden from abbottabad and the recent mohmand attacks when two pakistani posts were wiped out..while teh taleban terrorized teh government, people and nwfp......as the taleban insurgency deescalates pakistan many suggest has been backing out from a US confontation due to weakness again and again while still suggesting that the military is still tough enough to handle such invasions...others suggest that the PPP wants a regional appeasement especially with india and some face saving formula on kashmir while others say they have no knowledge of economics and its relationship to the people given their unrelenting dependance on price hikes...others suggest that the PPP came into teh government with the mentality of staying around whatever happened...good or bad...
  • Dec6-2011--The iranians apparently shot down a stealth high altitude new US drone called the sentinel flown from afghanistan while teh pakistanis cant yet spot the older variety predators
  • Dec6-2011--the diehard nature of pakistani politics is going out of favor says dawn barring the Mqm as political leaders donot function as peoples representatives and people no longer interested in a heated military civilian divide...democracy too is seen as not too populistic and imran khan is providing many a way out for those stuck with dictatorial leaderships who donot support the people...
  • Dec6-2011--policeman killed in a grenade attack in kohat as gas pipeline blast occurs in sui
  • Dec5-2011--pakistan is so dumb that anything goes...we now hear Dempsey/Hilary/Obama saying that they did not deliberately bomb two pakistani posts in the early hours of teh morning for over four hours...and senator Mcain says that two pakistani fertilizer factories provide fertilizer used in afghan IED's...how he reaches that conclusion is unknown...
  • Dec5-2011--Zulfikar mirza security guard shot dead in karachi...!!
  • Dec5-2011--Imran khan who is supposedly from Mianwali says he has 530 canals of ancestral land in Mian Channu(many say that was also gifted by teh GOP)...(shah mahmood qureashi is also from khanewal...now is imran khan a niazi from mianwali,pukhtun or seraiki...)a house on 300 canals in banni gala, islamabad and that he sold a london apartment for 750000 pounds(some suggest that a one room apartment is usually not so costly)...in 2002...that must be a really expensive apartment...he says he donated two plots to SKMT and that he made 20 million in teh last world cup..he says banni gala land was just 145000/canal in 2002..he says he has paid 350000 in taxes this year...although there is no mention of what happened to his Pace deptt store investment which he supposedly also owned...another politician who announced her earnings is the sindhi shehla raza who said she earned 27000 a month as deputy speaker...he also offered his bank accounts for inspection...
  • Dec5-2011--US moves to vacate teh shamsi airbase(there were only a few containers airlifted in two planes) as people say Asif zardari could resign in an address to parliament and make history as he supposedly wants to be compared to aung san Su kyi's long struggle for democracy in burma...others say as a last gift to responsible democracy he will resign and go and live at teh feet of bahadur shah zafar in burma(a country suppsoedly run by our ISI too...?)...Asif zardari has overseen what many say is teh division of teh country into provincial states and a continual antagonistic struggle against teh punjab while economically he drives prices higher and forces people almost to be pushed out of politics as he rules dictatorially and without any sense...his chief consultant seems tobe altaf hussein and his government has been based almost entirely on sindhi politics and issues...many regard him as one of the many politicians who like living outside teh country like his ally altaf hussein who ran and did not come back...
  • Dec5-2011--Ijaz mansoor created another controversy when teh whitehouse shot down another suggestion of his that haqqani and zardari knew about teh May 2 strike but did not inform the military...he also says that teh ISI's S-branch was out of control and involved in everything from afghanistan, haqqanis to internal politics however one doubts that teh ISI acts without government supervision...ijaz mansoor recently is supposed to have met teh ISI chief in london...
  • Dec4-2011--a dissident PPP mpa says only around 50 mpa's out of 108 attended a recent punjab party meeting...
  • Dec4-2011--Tariq Khosa a former IG and FIA Dg refuses to serve on teh SC memo commission
  • Dec3-2011--chaudhry nisar suggests that asif zardari was a member of teh outlawed NAP which was a diehard opponent of pakistan and ZAB...
  • Dec3-2011--eight militants killed in orakzai clashes
  • Dec3-2011--On the other hand the army chief allowed border troops to respond immediately when under attack...many suggest that border posts should be given stingers or anti aircraft mechanisms in that case...
  • Dec3-2011--in what is being seen as the continued mockery of pakistan its government and military the US continued to issue statements suggesting in one that the pakistan military had approved teh attack on the mohmand posts...although how they were going after militants at night seems pretty strange...similarly why the pakistan army did not retaliate when teh attacks went on for four hours is also quite strange...The military seems to have suggested that they did not have any troops in the area...on the other hand the Gilani administration started to suggest that beggars cannot be choosers and similar such nonsense...The PMLn also refused to attend an in camera session as the last time despite parliament suggestions they immediately jumped into the american lap again...This is the sixth US attack inside pakistan apart from over 300 drone attacks...when will it be...enough is enough...eh Gilani...!!
  • Dec2-2011--The weak pakistanis with a military bristling with anger(read pampered,subdued and pacified while teh people suffer) suggests that the US punish those involved in the bombings of the mohmand border posts...apologies for what seems tobe US policy against pakistan are hardly enough...
  • Dec2-2011--India and china lead the remmittances ladder with $58 and $57 billion with pakistan at number five below mexico $24 billion and phillipines $23 billion..pakistan followed by bangladesh, nigeria, vietnam, egypt and lebabnon
  • Dec2-2011--The troubles in fata continued as the military pounded orakzai and killed nine militants while militant outfits slugged it out in tirah killing five
  • Dec2-2011--In what many see as hopes of teh SC and PMLn of a watergate finish the SC appointed a former policeman Tariq Khosa to head a one man commission to investigate the ejaz mansoor memo to the american military chief in which he suggested that asif zardari needed help in removing kiani and pasha the dogged military duo who many see as the power behind the fledgling and weak PPP leadership...the military many say sees it as a success that unpopular leaders are ruling teh country..The SC also asked hussein haqqani not to leave the country...If haqqani and Asif zardari are found involved the country could see the first case under article 6...The PPP had attempted to do a runaround by not charging those involved and leaving it to a parliamentary committee which is obviously not an appropriate forum for anti constitutional behaviour...Theoretically the president can fire the army chief and ISI chief but teh last attempt ended in a coup and teh weakling Gilani is frightened of other lieutenant generals...
  • Dec2-2011--The army chief who has led teh army by keeping top positions under his control now says the US will face retaliation if it attacks pakistan again...many regard kiani as a US stooge who does not have teh guts to order a quick retaliation...teh situation after the abbottabad and mohmand attacks suggests that the pakistan military leadership lacks the resolve to make quick decisions...many suggest that teh afghans traditional anti pakistanism is taking its toll on teh situation...coupled with US literally becoming an enemy...There have been two other attacks on teh pakistan border since the US army wiped out two border posts days ago...two other pakistanis were killed in afghanistan by nato forces and another group of pakistani workers kidnapped...
  • Dec1-2011--There is not much to the US occupation of teh Shamsi airbase ...no airplanes or even drones...run by an absent UAe the PPP regime wants a show of supposed sovreignity returned to pakistan by an antagonistic anti paksitan USA...however the anti people PPP regime raises diesel prices to further fuel inflation...

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...

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...

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...!!

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...!!!

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 ...!

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...
