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 as a few minority members of parliament and recently also killed a muslim on just the suspicion of eating beef...

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

  • Dec31-2011--The SC overlooks charges of being traitors but agrees that the memo must be investigated and approves a very high powered commission consisting of three high court CJ's...it means that the SC regards that such conduct is akin to treason whether mansoor ijaz or hussain haqqani were acting on the PPP regime's orders or acting on their own to topple the PPP supporting top military officials...Asma jehangir who also referred to herself as a traitor too said it was the darkest day in the judiciaries history which is obviously contempt as she is not discussing teh contents of teh case but critisizing unnecessarily the CJ and his nine judge bench...The issue is bigger than a persons fundamental rights and strikes at teh core of governance and became a bone of contention between various organs and ministries...The army chief was said tobe extremely angry at teh PPP attempt to make him resign via Admiral Mullen...The ISI chief usually a god of wobbly governments also came out looking like a rogue...
  • Dec30-2011--Rangers soldier shot dead in mqm dominated area of karachi...
  • Dec30-2011--The appeasement natured SC has not taken notice of asma jehangir calling teh CJ a traitor alongwith everybody else...Despite enough information the SC is troubled under what provision to charge teh anti pakistan hussain haqqani who many say was literally running his anti pakistan war thru the US...
  • Dec30-2011--In what is being seen as another defeat of teh PPP regime it allocates 20 canals in H-11/4 for jamia hafsa directly to mullah aziz..mullah aziz oversaw the jamia hafsa which was the center of an alleged insurgency as women and militants stockpiled a small quantity of weapons and burned down an adjacent government library...and than withstood a military seige before commandos moved in to eliminate the remnants who did not leave...the head of the commandos was also shot dead by a sharpshooter from teh mosque...
  • Dec30-2011--javed hashni who is a new entrant to the mein..mein brigade of politicians resigns from the national assembly...The PPP speaker let him speak when they had not allowed shah mahmood to do so...The PPP feels that it is the PMLn that will be troubled but many see an almost total wipeout of the PPP/PMlq in teh punjab if teh PMln and PTI reach a seat adjustment or anyone with teh JI...
  • Dec30-2011--The iranians who have demonstrated some backbone in teh region now say that they will block the straits of Hormuz if attacked but did not trouble a US flotilla in teh area...many doubt that teh iranians can retaliate against israel and US bases if attacked...but they can trouble shipping in the hormuz...
  • Dec30-2011--The army pathetically seen as weak and US controlled sends Pasha to Qatar to tell teh americans that any further attacks will result in retaliation and they had better take action against the mohmand attackers...many say the daily visits of american generals to pakistan were seen as subjugating the government and army and pakistan was considered at best a US base..The situation is similar to the early sixties when teh US used to fly U-2's over russia from badabher..many say the pathetic asif zardari/Gilani were duped pro US agents who supported teh US invasion of abbottabad in the belief that Ossama ben Laden had ordered the elimination of Benazir Bhutto...many say the the government's weakness is only for a few f-16's and literally teh US has a anti pakistan posture in congress and the white house...Pasha is seen as one of the weakest ISI chiefs in living memory subjugated to teh army chief as well as teh PPP regime...he has literally destroyed relations in the region as well as the situations with afghanistan and the USA...many say the PPP used to say that they would have teh USA eating out of their hand but the USA did the same thing all over again and literally pushed pakistan into a corner box from which they have been unable to come out as they are seen as a subjugated duped country unable to run their own country with their own policies...
  • Dec30-2011--Asif Zardari who is teh most pro american president yet barring musharaf ridicules US support of qaddafi and mubarik..The PPP regime had been frightened of supporting even the Libyan movement...many suggest that the arab movements are US supported generally even though the ben laden supporting former rulers and teh emerging islamic parties are generally thought tobe anti US too...others suggest that the weakened hold of ossamma Ben laden and eventual elimination had freed the arab islamic movements who are moving against dictatorial and family rule...and supporting some sort of democacrcy in teh shape of elections...The arab countries have been held hostage by monarchies and socialistic-dynasty dicatatorships...the islamic parties have generally supported dictatorships or some type of caliph type islamic dictatorships but now feel that they have a popularity base to participate in elections and win...The US a dubious supporter of any government that is falling will support whatever comes to power there...Asif zardari too can be considered a government about to fall one way or the other...
  • Dec30-2011--the pathetic Asim Hussein who has been unable to control supply of gas in punjab suggests that he is going to close down CNG stations..asif anybody is worried about CNG stations...in many areas of rawalpindi gas has gone missing until the early hours of teh morning...if there was going tobe a gas problem than gas should first be closed down in the hot south and the decision should have been taken in end november...After a month of problems to domestic users he now says that he is going to act against teh PMLq supporting CNG stations...Gilani apparently advised him to wait for the next elections before taking a decision..!!

  • Dec28-2011--The PPP shows at the Benazir mazaar showed that their popularity is falling fast even in sindh...The PPP many say has survived due to benazirs assassination and the army has not couped because many think that it was involved in the act and senior army officers still feel guilty as teh bhutto family had long links to the army...investigations many feel have been smothered by teh PPP regime...amongst the many culprits thought to have been involved in teh benazir assassination are asif zardari/Gilani...teh duo that benefited most,a string of people assassinated in karachi including several PPP loyalists, , chaudhry shujaat/ijaz ul haq/PMLq thru their terrorist links, sheikh rashid whose area many say was rife about the planned attack and obviously musharaf and the countries agencies...others point to the sindh chief minister who knew the timing of the karachi attacks and the mqm whose terrorist links are now acknowledged by many...raja riaz says the names are known although others feel that a second sharpshooter is yet tobe located and that the PPP had clear information relating to the attack and that people close to teh family including sherry rehman and rehman malik knew or were complicit...others refer to a taleban coordinated murder group and a person who ordered the attack from karachi or sindh...many also believe that zardari's father was considered a benazir opponent and could have been involved...

  • Dec27-2011--The PPP tries to pacify/appease the edgy army duo of kiani and pasha as Gilani confers with the chairman joint chiefs on possible replacements...many say it would hardly make any difference if the two musharaf men were sent packing...The PPP's attempt at having them resign via american persuasion has backfired and many think that they would definitely have to fire pasha or sent hussain haqqani to jail for treachery aka treason...
  • Dec26-2011--In Kurram and orakzai 34 militants died and three security men
  • Dec26-2011--The new political sardar urf quaid in teh making Imran khan ran over altaf hussein in karachi as a huge jalsa in karachi ensured his reputation as the man to beat in teh next elections as Asif zardari worriedly tried to makeup with Nawaz Sharif... as the PMlq started to disappear into the imran khan dust cloud...many suggest that the nawaz sharif's reputation as a fake opposition is becoming clearer...
  • Dec26-2011--gilani urf "seraiki provincial" first rediculed teh uneducated sounding ashik awan and than refused to accept her tearful resignation...apparently she ensured him that PTV would project him as the seraikist on his way to permanent retirement...an information ministry hopeful from karachi was used to ridicule her handling of teh information ministry
  • Dec26-2011--The egghead or "ahmeq" Gilani suggests that he is still preparing the lists of teh countries problems at the end of his fourth year in power...elections at best have tobe held in early 2013 which is just over a year away and he still does not know how to solve the problems...so afraid is he of tackling problems himself or dealing with the real problem's ie the two pasha's that he just issues a statement that i have ordered that the circular debt be resolved...he than forgets to check on what has been done until another year goes bye...many suggest that general kiani is a reluctant coup plotter while Gilani is frightened of firing teh two failures ie kiani and pasha...worried over where he would be sent by teh over the hill kiani if he tried to fire him...

  • Dec25-2011--The PMLn under attack from both left and right comes out in support of the embattled army chief whose belief in democracy is considered suspect..Gilani supposedly attacked the army chief in parliament and teh top PPP leadership very treacherorusly tried to have the military chief removed thru admiral Mullen...Kianis democratic credentials seem suspect given his behaviour in opposing anti PPP parties and refusal to accept that teh government has any right to replace him...many suggest that Asif Zardari who seems frightened of Gilani is almost a lame duck...he seems to suggest that teh PPP is in power due to teh power of the bullet and that elections should supposedly be around teh corner...
  • Dec24-2011--The PMLq run by a dying breed of pro military politicians realizes that it will be wiped out if it hangs onto the PPP...many of teh anti PPP...PMlq supporters are making a beeline for the PTI with the rest restricted by being in parliament...The PMLq has been dented by shabaz sharifs refusal to allow local bodies elections in teh punjab...The PPP too might find that the PMLq votebank has vanished by the time the next elections in punjab take place
  • Dec24-2011--some government schools in the federal schools system to start O and A level education systems which are examined by english universities
  • Dec24-2011--In a violent expression of anti government feelings over deliberate gas load shedding in outlying rawalpindi areas a massive protest blocked traffic from Faizabad to kural chowk while a police armoured car was set on fire...anti government feelings are high in the impoverished rawalpindi areas...

  • Dec24-2011--After karachi was retaken by teh police the mqm many say now wants to start troublemaking in teh seraiki center of multan...having failed to make karachi a province altaf hussein and Gilani want to create trouble and divide teh punjab...others suggest that the mqm was involved in the bomb attacks on Benazir in karachi which were blamed on seraiki militants...he suggests more universities and medical colleges in south punjab...already the seraiki areas get more medical seats around 4000 in teh current punjab medical colleges and there are three not two medical colleges and an engineering college...Punjab does not discriminate in the matter of education like karachi and seraikis can get admissions everywhere...textile mills in the extremely hot environment would be counterproductive with karachi and faisalabad having discriminated against the entire country in teh matter of industries...Gilani has however set up a new textile industrial area in karachi rather than the seraiki areas which are teh major cotton producers...Altaf hussein and Gilani again want to pit one area and ethnic group against another in their ethnic disorientation...multan mostly concentrates on the handlooms sector and the ginning sector while karachi loots the entire cotton crop of teh area...
  • Dec24-2011--The pakistani taleban again frustrated the pakistani government and military by storming a military fort in Tank killing one soldier and kidnapping 17...
  • Dec24-2011--Imran Khan might be in the making of a very big move by netting the estranged Javed Hashmi who was apparently not convinced by Nawaz Sharif's hirelings...Hashmi holds some of the strings of nawaz sharif's popularity and it could mean many more seats for teh PTI...Javed Hashmi was in some sort of suspicious negotiations/meetings between the MQM and the americans to topple the government but many suggest that the mqm backed out of the deal and Javed Hashmi apparently opposed Nawaz Sharif's refusal to back seraikistan..he also apparently accused Nawaz Sharif of leaving the country like altaf hussein when in trouble...when Nawaz sharif came back he quickly replaced Javed Hashmi with Chaudhry Nisar and that was not appreciated by the those who had fought the martial law administration...many suggest that he was supporting teh seraiki Gilani and was sidelined by the party leadership...
  • Dec24-2011--The army chief backs down but warns teh government that he will not accept convoluted attempts at removing him and teh ISI chief...The army chief probably only belatedly realized that Admiral Mullens attempts at making him resign were indirect attempts by Gilani and Asif Zardari to make him move on ...The army chief interprets that as interference in his responsibilities in all matters of internal and external security...many have blamed General Kiani of sitting around watching as teh americans insult pakistan probably also at teh instigation of teh ruling goons...The Armed Forces should have retaliated against both teh Abbottabad and Mohmand incidents...The PPP now wants to fire teh defence secretary who told teh SC that they have no control over teh armed forces...
  • Dec24-2011--The CJ who had been part of a panel of judges who approved teh musharaf martial law now says they would not approve another military takeover...the military would just have to use other means to knock out the current rulers and bring a more compliant or workable democracy...people now see teh failure of leaders thrown up by a suspect agreement between politicians and terrorists...The system has government leaders sitting around doing nothing or attempting to fool people while they enjoy their holidays in dubai and france and increasing the suffering of teh general population...while they prop up the rich and influential such as sugar barons and CNG station owners...and insult the people and the armed forces...by price hikes, and restricting electricity and gas for domestic users...
  • Dec23-2011--JUI-f says that teh US has a terrible record of invading and dehumanizing people...They spent $320 billion on the Korean invasion(1950-53) killing 1.5 million , $686 billion in teh Vietnam War(1964-73) killing 1.3 million and spent $744 billion on two gulf wars(1990-2011) killing 100000 and spent $201 billion on teh Afghan war(1979-2014)killing one million...americans are cruel and unfriendly as a people...

  • Dec23-2011--Imran Khan suggests that Asif Zardari be forced to take a medical test to find out whether he suffered a stroke or not and his mental abilities be gauged...
  • Dec23-2011--The Election Commission refused to obey SC orders saying that it cant prepare new rolls by Feb23 and if an election is ordered it would have tobe conducted under the old rolls...many feel that a failing government is raising so many court cases that teh SC CJ should order new elections rather than keep on handling political cases...
  • Dec23-2011--Rumours of a government military divide on teh issues of pushing things under teh carpet...with a controversial failed/failing ISI chief doing whatever he does and an army chief at odds with the US and a PPP regime literally refusing to handle things properly whether they be bringing to trial anti pakistani ambassadors or handling gas and electricity distribution or ending teh insurgencies in afghanistan and pakistan even though they are now willing to reach a solution...many suggest that Kiani who has resisted a coup could finally fall for the power that a martial law government gives thru ruling thru an unchallenged dictatorship given teh wobbly PPP...which many feel would be a relief for ordinary pakistanis driven to teh edges if despair by a a government driven by provincial egos...
  • Dec22-2011--A parliamentary committee also reluctantly opened the issue of teh memo case which is already subjudice...Asif Zardari has yet to file his reply in teh SC given the variation found in teh various government responses and being theoretically teh prime accused..!!He also reluctantly arrived in islamabad amongst suggestions that he could be on teh way out for good...The SC also asked the EC to complete electoral rolls by Feb23 which could be interpreted as teh SC interfering in teh independence of teh EC or that it might order new polls itself given teh PPP regimes lack of stature and credibility...and the ineffective primeminister literally being dragged along by events...!!!
  • Dec22-2011--The countries democracy was further shown tobe just facial when teh defence minister said he had no control over teh actions of teh armed forces and the ISI...The government had earlier shown its inability to replace kiani and pasha after they had completed their terms...Pasha supposedly is now serving without an official extension...The ISPR belatedly said that the ISI chiefs trips to middle eastern countries seeking support for Asif Zardari's removal were not verified or verifiable...The whole issue has its base in teh armed forces reluctance to move against US helicopters that raided abbottabad...and whether Pasha and kiani were in on the operations details...The ISI chief should theoretically report to teh primeminister but he apparently is subordinate to teh army chief but operating as an independent entity without any control by teh supposed democracy...The army chief considered a major supporter of the regime supposedly has had a breakdown in relations with Asif Zardari and teh american armed forces that he proudly showed as his strong point earlier as both in connivance with outside forces sought his removal...many suggest that the army also regards itself as independent in operations and promotions...and has a huge budget which they are now wasting on building DHA cities in karachi when teh country has no gas or electricity...their budget is so huge that they have been building roads in Fata and running some part of the countries politics in remote baloch areas and strife torn swat and fata...theoretically they waste probably around 50-100 billion every year on DHA projects...the national assembly now has a four line budget mentioning the generalized size of teh armed forces budget...Is this democracy or military dictatorship with a PPP front...?

  • Dec21-2011--Dawn up in arms against the DPC which they say bands together over 44 ISI controlled groups which include jihadis, sectarianists, orthodox mullahs, revivalists and ISI controlled politicians..they are said tobe a reaction to the army and PPP adopting a clear appeasement subjugated approach on kashmir, india and the US..suggestions that they are moving towards a political presence in teh next parliament in a move likened to the more conformist MMA grouping...with even afghanistan apparently willing to attack pakistans borders the teh Hafiz Saeed led group who is also supposedly the LT boss which is credited with mounting a few attacks inside india which are considered tobe retaliations for the indians subjugation of kashmir thru violent suppression of divided groups of radicals in kashmir and terrorism inside pakistan and acts such as teh bombing of teh samjotha express which are linked to the indian army...The government has to realize that since their economics is anti people relations with teh US should not be given such a high priority that it destroys teh image of a country as a whole...
  • Dec21-2011--Hussain Haqqani tells abbottabad commission that he acted on government instructions...which clearly puts teh blame on teh top PPP leadership...about abbottabad and teh memo...!!It is now quite clear that the top military and political leadership have been acting against the state of pakistan in these cases...

  • Dec20-2011--rumours about asif zardaris elimination from pakistani politics have persisted...many have questioned the reasoning of a 3 hour army chief meeting with the double dealing Gilani while another report suggests that he will soon move on to a permanent retirement home...The ISPR apparently confirmed teh rumours seeking strict action against the memo criminals said to include asif zardari...This despite the backing down of the PMLn...many have also suggested that asif zardari/Gilani were behind teh elimination of Benazir Bhutto...The PPP has already started to experiment with Bilawal Bhutto but given teh anti people PPP politics he is not expected to create any further enthusiasm for the PPP...
  • Dec20-2011--protests lead by teh PMln blocked traffic in islamabad and rawalpindi due to all day gas outages...with people unable to cook or remain warm protests have mounted...gas is only available in teh early morning showing teh poor control of SNGPL and the government...Gilani had tobe airlifted from teh airport and Bilawal fled rawalpindi after the protests...

  • Dec17-2011--22 militants and a security man killed in upper orakzai...
  • Dec17-2011--Maulana Abdul Aziz of the Lal Masjid says they will rebuild the jamia hafsa despite government disapproval...many think the jamia hafsa women who did not leave after their education at teh seminary were behind teh collection of weapons and were considered frightening by most people...compared to teh terrorists headed by mullah ghazi...many of the women seminary students were killed in a brutal attack by the pakistan armies commandos...in which over 400 were said to have been killed...mullah aziz presided over the lal masjid fiasco and was jailed in over 20 cases..he had attempted to escape in a burqa......many suggest that PPP appeasement of terrorist radicals included the mullah aziz release from legal challenges...As the military encircled the Lal masjid the terrorists attempted to fight back but were eventually defeated by trained commandos/FC and a lack of real fighting ability...That has led to an almost four year war of attrition thru suicide bombs and militant attacks all over pakistan...Fighting continues in the nwfp and fata...
  • Dec17-2011--PMLn leaders ask SC to recall wajid shamsul hasan the UK ambassador for saying that pakistan had been informed ten days in advance of teh Ossama attack and teh military only moved after the US helicopters had left...many claim that there was top level consultation on teh Ossama attack and that the army and ISI chiefs were involved in information transfer and planning..The ISI chief was in washington during teh days preceding the attack just as he was during the 9/11 incident......The US and the pakistan army had a falling out on whether they had prior knowledge of teh Ossama residence...many suggest that since teh US had come to the region to get Ossama they should now get out...The US backing out of financial aid mechanisms for pakistan as it usually does when it has achieved its aims in teh region...!!The army and ISI were pathetic in suggesting that they had no knowledge of teh US monitoring of the Ossama residence over a long period of time...!!
  • Dec17-2011--The apparently bedridden Asif Zardari says he cannot be removed for physical or mental incapacity although getting half the members of teh assembly to sign a petition would be difficult in itself...although he does suffer from paranoia about pakistani doctors...this is teh first case of somebody going to dubai for medical treatment...!!many say altaf hussein will now send the karachi poor to dubai for medical treatment...!!
  • Dec17-2011--many say that the pakistan situation is fast developing into a non government/non governance...with a chalak seraiki vizier, sada looh jhelimi salar and beemar (benazir ka waris) president and a pathetically silent parliament and an ISI playing both sides "kabhi coup kabhi zardari..."others say that the hand of gilani can be clearly seen behind the memo while the president is said tobe fighting an imaginary disability removal if not impeachment...still others say that zardari logon ki hamdardi ke liye beemar hua he...they say PMLn hun gal nahin kar sakdi...us tarf jayen to imran is tarf ayen to zardari...donon hi qabile qabool nahin.....and that his illness can usually be handled by a normal hospital doctor...standard medications exist for such situations...others suggest that with the government paying little heed to teh peoples problems the PPP democracy is of little importance as they hardly care for teh suffering of teh people...any ordinary intelligent person could have kept teh problems within limits showing teh PPP inability to deal with emerging or changing situations...ie "sab kuch ho rahe he aur kar kuch nahin sakte..."
  • Dec16-2011--Haqqani and Ijaz Mansoor apparently referred to teh Army and ISI chiefs as bad boys while there is also talk about a discussion of a coup by pasha on a middle east trip...while the zardari presidency which really did not take off because of its isolated PPP-sindhi perspective maybe fatally doomed as Asif zardari might now also be a fatally flawed president given teh memogate purview...as well as having an illness that could be debilitating enough to cause him to resign because of disability(apart from being unable to preside from islamabad and frightened of teh pakistani medical community)...The military replies to teh SC suggest that an investigation should be initiated while teh government suggests that the SC interest is irrelevant...while the nature of pakistani coups is always surrounded by unreality many should not doubt that they can be initiated at any level of army officialdom although generals have been adroit enough to control most coups upto now...and the ISI's actual job is to monitor any subversives and coup planners apart from those initiated by the general himself in teh armed forces...

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...

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...

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...!

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...

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...!!!

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...

syria teh world is frightened about but not pakistan

syria a new beirut

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

the chabri wala

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