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

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"...?

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

extreme soceity
india is an extreme one sided hindu soceity unable to tolerate other religions or even opinions..the modi support group shiv sena blackens a member of the extremist BJP for supporting a book.....india despite having 30% minorities only 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 Jan 01-15, 2012

  • Jan 15-2012--In response to twitter posts US state deptt spokeswomen says that pakistan should deal with the balochistan issue thru negotiations...this after it was revealed that punjab governor killed by organisation that was paid 36000 dollars by teh US...
  • Jan 15-2012--In DI Khan teh DPO office attacked by three militants...seven killed including three militants and two policemen
  • Jan 15-2012--After the craziness exhibited by Gilani teh army chief said that he too is not subordinate to teh primeminister and told Asif Zardari that teh primeminister had better withdraw his statements about teh armed forces which he regards as interference in his domain..Gilani obviously is not right about who he is responsible too and as primeminister he has to work with everyone as a system cannot work in isolated spheres according to his view...parliament is at best a rubber stamp and everyone cannot work after seeking approval for everything...however NAB on the other hand finally said that all NRO cases are now open and they are even willing to write to teh swiss if teh SC so orders...Kiani had initially a falling out with asif zardari in the memo controversy and he now apparently has a working relationship with zardari...all the faults of this government are now in commissions barring the NRO...from abbottabad onwards teh government has lost almost all credibility...parliament, president, primeminister should many say all take a hike...new elections are teh only answer...
  • Jan 15-2012--the guardian writes in an editorial on Jan 11, 2012...
    Mr Zardari and the PPP government can be faulted for many things. The political charge sheet is long: incompetence, weakness, venality. They reacted terribly to the worst floods in living memory. They have pandered to fundamentalism over the blasphemy law rather than facing it down. A weak state has grown steadily weaker under their civilian control. Mr Zardari carries much personal baggage, which is almost certainly worthy of further investigation, but while president, he enjoys immunity from prosecution and he is right to face down the military. The place to oust an administration enjoying a two-thirds majority is at an election, and the people to do so are voters, not judges, generals or intelligence chiefs. Anyone who allows generals to remove politicians must be aware that the same could happen to them....

    my response to which is...

    while one agrees that a democracy cannot survive under teh military yoke it is also impossible for many to tolerate teh inadequacies of teh personnel in charge...in a democracy if u donot want coups than a failed primeminister or even president must move on if they are responsible people...all the primeminister had to say was i am sorry for suggesting that teh military is running a state within a state...when a sorry can solve teh problem and that is snowballed into a controversy than it is obvious that teh mental state of feudal type rulers(a multani pir and a sindhi wadera) is in question...when u cannot remove an army chief than what type of democracy isit anyway...first the president had a run in with teh military chief and than the prime minister...the president they say had a heart attack when he was told to get lost...is he the president of dubai or pakistan...?
  • Jan 15-2012--The controversial Gilani may be behind teh memo many say as his weakness in not removing the army chief who clearly threatened him after what can at best be regarded as useless bravado in his unnecessarily critisizing the army...The DCC meeting saw Gilani aimlessly suggesting that they were somehow for peace in teh region and country both of which cannot be achieved without a strong military with the ability to fight at least those that attack it...and with no regional power barring small terrorist oriented groups...If teh country is going tobe pulverized by US attacks than how can peace be achieved...with both military and government turning into silent onlookers to internal and external threats..mere pacifism does not solve issues.....the region too is clearly threatened by US moves against iran, pakistan, soviets needless building up of indian armed prowess..and US/taleban destabilization in afghanistan..indian covert destabilization added to US and taleban actvities are not conducive to peace in anyway with reports of teh US having paid for the assassination of a punjab governor...one wonders what Gilani wants to achieve as military chiefs sat in angry silence at the DCC meeting...peace cannot be achieved if teh country cannot deal with its own defence internally and externally...a weak government will clearly be faced with an uncertain future with both internal and external threats and a subjugated attitude towards teh US and an established inability to resolve popular issues...The government has clearly been unable to resolve major economic,foreign and military affairs issues with a clear attitude of irresponsibility and avoiding real tough decision making and a general tendency to create trouble and tensions to force military , people and opposition into silence...the government clearly wants an atagonistic attitude towards teh army and judiciary which has forced them to take serious stands on major issues which the PPP has a tendency to avoid...
  • Jan 14-2012--The memo controversy made a move forward with mansoor ijaz saying that there were two others who coauthored teh memo with haqqani...they are referred to as a jehangir keramat and teh controversial mahmud durrani...mansoor has refused to come back to pakistan without a security guarantee...however if the writers are convicted so will teh courier...
  • Jan 14-2012--sacked defence secretary khalid laodhi also suggest that his removal was illegal and might move the courts...
  • Jan 14-2012--teh SC backed off from indicting baber awan for contempt...
  • Jan 14-2012-- 150 militants attacked a security post near peshawar in which seven militants and three security men were killed...
  • Jan 14-2012--PMLn's Nawaz Sharif tries to get together a coalition of nationalists, religious groups and some breakaway factions...with teh PPP trying to stake a claim to seraikis mohajirs, pukhtuns and teh sindhi PPP group...
  • Jan 14-2012--The beleaguered Gilani takes refuge in a parliament which has not been in much evidence as far as the problems of teh population are concerned..democracy many says is meaningless when teh people suffer at teh hands of a ethnic coalition which seems to have no popular support left...Gilani who was challenged by the military and judiciary on his conduct finally moved a resolution asking parliament to support teh lame duck governance with Gilani referring to himself as a crow...crows many say usually only get together when they are fed chichras(pieces of inedible meat) as Chaudhry Nisar said we are not crows and will not dumbly gather around to support Gilani...Zardari also many say quickly left for the safe haven of Dubai...however NAB finally moved to obey some SC orders while teh PPP suggested they might be willing to write a letter to teh swiss...The NRO however has other aspects too...most of the PPP problems actually stem from not taking appropriate actions in resolving people issues and in teh foreign domain while being reluctant to remove bad appointments time and again...parliament many say also seemingly turned pro american and suggested that taxes be imposed on Nato traffic and their goods be allowed thru if they gave a categoric assurance on stopping attacks on pakistan...many say teh ISI and army failed to give any confidence on relations with the arrogant attitude perpetuated by the USA repeatedly......The army has failed to realize that they have to act if the countries security is repeatedly threatened by external sources as well as internal troublemakers...
  • Jan 13-2012--US again challenging pakistan dubious military with another drone atatck that kills five
  • Jan 13-2012--Another pir appeared on the sindhi scene who is not expected tobe as powerful as teh pir of pagara who usually made political statements about teh GHQ and kept teh muslim legue from getting together...
  • Jan 13-2012--Senate elections on March 2 as case in SHC suggests that most senate candidates have a dual nationality.. elections should theoretically occur after a vacancy comes into being rather than before...
  • Jan 13-2012--The corp commanders and teh unpopular or strange ethnic coalition met seperately and teh tensions continued as teh corp commanders were unhappy at the firing of a retired general from a reserved for teh military slot...many suggest that teh table can only be cleared by teh replacement of Gilani who seems unable to understand that there is no fixed term for parliament or primeminister and nobody else has any problems with the military apart from the saleem shehzad commission which asked that the ISI be made accountable...others suggest that a DCC meeting could suggest removal of teh military duo after it was revealed that teh US could have paid for the elimination of teh punjab governor...while Asif Zardari suspiciously again ran off to Dubai...with the revival of drone attacks and some severe attacks in balochistan and the Fata the military and teh government are at a cross roads...if someone is not fired than teh solution could come from teh SC cases on the memo and teh NRO which are both aimed at teh same set of people...others suggest that even the ethnic coalition is divided and no one even supports a generalized resolution supporting the top controversial two and teh PMLn talks of a vote of no confidence..many are talking about replacements with even names for replacing Gilani being studied...while there no real stalwarts amongst teh PPP anybody with a little sense could do a better job than teh seraiki Gilani...
  • Jan 12-2012--Gilani suffered another setback when teh US resumed drone attacks in teh Fata killing four..Gilani claims to have solved issues that restart like electricity load sheddings, drone attacks and constitutional changes...and teh NRO keeps striking back as teh government refuses to take action
  • Jan 12-2012--Muzzafargarh mna jamshed dasti a rare non elite elected in a rural fuedal constituency resigns from the national assembly and teh PPP alleging interefernce by Hina Krabbani khar and corrupt appointments in his constituency..
  • Jan 12-2012--The USA said it had paid teh Sunni Ittehad said tobe associated with the elimination of teh punjab governor around 36000 dollars causing suggestions that teh USA might be involved in teh murder...
  • Jan 12-2012--In turbat two FC vehicles were attacked by militants killing 14 soldiers
  • Jan 12-2012--Things were up for grabs as teh ISPR spokesman critisized Gilani for his harsh comments about teh armed forces as brigade 111 was made ready to move...however Gilani under pressure from teh SC immediately fired teh defence secretary a retired lt.gen appointed by gen kiani and appointed his own beaurocratic controller as defence secretary...however general Kiani given his reputation for backing off did not make teh decisive move as the SC appointed another seven judge panel to study teh six options on the NRO decision as teh PPP found it difficult to convince its allies on even a parliamentary support motion while many wanted an immediate vote of confidence or no confidence...The PPP seems in a fix and many suggest immediate early elections which teh PPP wants after teh senate elections...It now leaves it to a seven judge SC panel to decide whether to sack Gilani or back off too...the four zardari, kiani, gilani, and iftikhar chaudhry have been patting each others backs as the country literally goes to teh dogs...and avoiding real decision making...many point to teh possibility of a coup initiated at a lower level as teh top army officials and teh SC are seen to be dilly dallying or keeping pending important decision making the government unstable and its pathetic nature seemingly acceptable at teh top level as they are increasingly seen as not having a popular base something considered preferable in teh armed forces while politicians continue attempts to portary themselves as super human martyrs who are just as above teh law as teh armed forces top brass...!!!...
  • Jan 11-2012--In what can be said tobe teh first decision by the SC against the present regime's behaviour an SC bench declared six options for a larger bench to study on teh governments refusal to follow orders on teh NRO decision...They suggested that Gilani may not be an honest person. The options include..1..disqualification of Gilani, zardari, law minister and secretary...2..Initiate contempt proceedings against Gilani and law ministry..3..The SC appoints a commission to handle teh implementation of the NRO..4..Asif zardari can claim immunity under article 284..5..Removal of chairman NAB for contempt and refusal to obey orders..6..Exercise judicial restraint and let the people make teh decision(possibly call elections under an interim authority). Yusuf Raza Gilani who has outlived any possible sympathy again tried to play the martyr but there were few buyers left for the PPP's mazloom drama after almost four years of consistent negative governance in substance as well as related to implementation of court orders...many suggest that the only way out for the PPP is to immediately call new elections within 30 days possibly after declaring a NRO like general amnesty for all politicians or all previous governments...if that was difficult they could ask parliament to handle teh NRO issue...The PPP has been at loggerheads with the PMLn on a real NAB law but wanted themselves absolved or at least the top government officials..the law would have little bite left if it did not cover governments, legislators and generals...They do have a majority and can devise a new NRO act or override the SC entirely and pass teh original NRO into legislation...The PPP and its allies have come across as dubious in implementation of court orders as well matters of serious governance...While Nawaz Sharif had agreed to repay his loans and reorganize his industrial concerns for release teh PPP/PMLq/musharaf went for an NRO to cover/absolve all those whose cases had not been decided in teh last decade...The SC gave parliament time to bring legislation to cover the NRO but they refused...and teh SC than declared the NRO null and void and asked teh government to reinitiate teh swiss cases which had generally lost validity and almost thousands of other cases against politicians generally from teh PPP and mqm...
  • Jan 11-2012-- remote control device device exploded in jamrud bazaar killing over 30
  • Jan 11-2012--Power cuts of 12-20 hours across teh country as government shuts down hydel power stations to conserve water during canal closures..there was only 6500MW of generation left..the dawn says without wapda the countries discos and other companies are without a real coordinator although the NTDC has todo teh job which controls transmission lines and grid stations......in rawalpindi alone there were irregular cuts from two hours to five hours and unimportant areas suffered at teh hands of government and military areas...with gas almost shutdown teh problems are being exacerbated with almost no governance in these problem isuues...
  • Jan 10-2012--gas problems and long duration electricity shutdowns continue in northern rawalpindi...electricity has been shutdown upto five hours in a stretch while there has been no gas during the past three days and nights...
  • Jan 10-2012--The Election commission is said tobe not ready for elections within ninety days and elections could theoretically be held in May...The PPP's hurried call for early senate elections is being seen as an attempt to not lose further support by getting it over quickly...while others suggest that they are trying to pre-empt a coup which would leave them as a majority party in the senate as elections under the army or judiciary could see them wiped out of central and northern punjab and losing heavily in south punjab as well despite their seraiki province move...
  • Jan 10-2012--The PPP already losing support in the punjab seem worried about teh arrival of general musharaf from exile...the last coup plotter who could create trouble by standing as a candidate from karachi..being a mohajir he has support in karachi with the PPP being seen increasingly as having no sense of ruling teh country properly...with the army at logger heads with teh government many generals think that musharaf might have been a better choice than the seemingly do nothing or "no gas no electricity zardari"...sindh's raza rabbani wants an article 6 case against musharaf while manzoor wassan says he will be arrested immediately...others suggest that musharaf might come back under an agreement that he will only stand from teh remote chitral and not trouble the mqm or PPP...
  • Jan 10-2012--militants exchange ten soldiers bodies with those of 10 militants who went missing in an attack on their post in orakzai on Dec 21
  • Jan 10-2012--three girls die in a concert stampede in lahore
  • Jan 10-2012--The memo case hinges on blackberry data some of which apparently seen by teh ISI chief...haqqani had nothing to offer in his appearance to the SC but seemed uneasy about any blackberry related information which he said were government phones which he had left in teh USA...an ambassador leaving his official phones behind in teh USA seems tobe quite strange...The USA which many say was involved as Admiral Mullen might have asked General Kiani to quit...when he refused he suggested that Kiani was unreliable a statement that might also have been made by some of pakistans top politicians...Dawn suggests that Asif Zardari might have to visit dubai again tobe tutored in how to handle his deteriorating relations with teh army chief who many say has been taking it rather lightly in view of teh strange remarks by teh dubious seraiki in parliament and recently...The ISI chief many say wanted teh SC to hear him in camera suggesting that he might have information that would be damaging to the the government and Haqqani...
  • Jan 10-2012--Gilani now being referred too as a semi idiot after he mistakes CJ's remarks about army actions such as coups and military actions as illegal if not ordered by teh government..Gilani however said that the statements in response to SC orders on the memo issue by teh army chief and ISI chief( literally considered as the only institutions in this country) were illegal as he had not approved them...obviously the CJ had asked them for their personal responses as he had the other respondents...Gilani apparently said that teh army was functioning as a state within a state...earlier Gillani was forced by teh army chief or GHQ not to replace teh army and ISI chiefs some suggest by force...
  • Jan 09-2012--maulana Fazlur rehman after talking to the mqm says Asif zardari can be persuaded to quit...?
  • Jan 09-2012--Lull in drone attacks have emboldened militants says NYT...however drone attacks were totally counter productive and an effective political solution can be worked out eventually with a a united militant group willing to work across teh tribal areas if the government shows its committment to negotiations when teh militants reach the conclusion that whatever their military achievements the solution lies in a peaceful end game both in Fata and afghanistan...many however realize that may not be possible until teh US leaves afghanistan like vietnam...the pakistan military too might eventually work towards isolating teh tribal region rather than fighting it out...
  • Jan 09-2012--Altaf hussein says he does not want to divide sindh but wants to divide punjab and nwfp...?many suggest that the system of provinces should be eliminated totally and all divisions should be turned into provinces...many in punjab see the evil minds behind seraikistan but many suggest that sindh will not be able to contain the fallout of less water and no cotton...Gilani literally marooned and isolated in multan seems incapable of getting a seraiki resolution thru the punjab assembly...many suggest that the seraiki areas seem the only hope left for teh PPP as they donot seem to have enough support left in north and central punjab and many south punjab areas as well...
  • Jan 09-2012--the last coup plotter threatens to come back seeing the PPP regime destabilize...saying like his previous dictatorship that he can handle things...while his nazim local governments were relatively successful there was no development anywhere but karachi and his shaukat aziz economy was literally built on consumerism and CNg stations which brought more cars on teh road and destroyed literally the electrical infrastructure which has been continued by teh PPP regime which has also destroyed peoples purchasing powers thru price hikes and gas shortages...
  • Jan 08-2012--PMLn lawyers shout out Gilani "urf seraiki" as he tries to show his face in lahore an almost opposition safe haven...seraikis like gilani and baber awan have blamed lahore for the south punjab's problems...shabaz sharif and pervez elahi have both focused development on multan...multan khanewal motorway underconstruction as well as new multan airport...while many say karachi is to blame for looting south punjabs cotton and depriving it financially like other parts of teh country
  • Jan 08-2012--Asif Zardari who was hiding in dubai when benazir was killed says he had asked her not to attend the rawalpindi rally...suggesting that amin fahim, sherry and nahid khan were not the last peopel with her in teh car...zardari henchmen naik, rehman malik and baber awan did not cover benazirs car and went on ahead thus leaving her car unprotected with sherry rehman the prime accused in making her stand in her car...while the obvious negative security advice given to Benazir was clear teh PPP has not found teh controller a supposed sindhi maulvi and many still feel that the orders came from karachi and not Fata...while baitullah mehsud was later assassinated in a drone raid teh PPP has not claimed that they have killed the killer suggesting that they want to let of teh those involved...The PPP which has not followed up on teh NRO cases apart from a few now says that teh NRO cases and swiss cases are history...Asif Zardari fails to realize that Benazir alone was not responsible for everything and none of her close associates have been held accountable...Asif Zardari again claims that he had not run away to dubai despite there being suggestions that teh army chief held him responsible for the negative US attitude towards him...however teh army chief apparently backed out of any action and teh politicians again regrouped around teh dubious natured asif zardari...
  • Jan 08-2012--The PPP seems to think that 30 days from the occurrence of a vacancy in the senate means 30 days prior rather than afterwards..theoretically elections to the senate should take place from March 12 to April 11...The PPP now thinks that it can use the elections date as a bargaining tool...The PMLn only wants talks on a caretaker setup given teh history of dubious elections under teh PPP..It means that the PPP accepts that it has no mandate and does not want to resolve any crisis...The PPP wants elections in October while the PMLn is ready anytime and the PTI would go along with October...The PPP allies worried about its dubious support levels are now having other thoughts...many suggest that teh ANP , JUI-f, Mqm are all up for grabs by teh bigger parties with most regarding a PPP defeat as almost a foregone conclusion...The PMlq too has tried but nobody else wants anything todo with it...The PPP and mqm many say also thinks that musharaf might worry others but he is only a problem for them as kiani wont allow them to lets say hang him for his offences...
  • Jan 07-2012--In another attempt at subverting the constitution which clearly opposes creation of new provinces the PPP coalition attempted to continue its political mudslinging and again fixed its dirty eyes on breaking up punjab...khursheed shah knows what happens to such dirty eyes...with teh karachi based MQM failing to gain support for its hazara province move opposed tooth and nail by teh ANP the PPP again said that it would move a seraiki province move that will obviously fail in teh provincial assembly unless they can hold new elections before senate elections...the mqm is failing again inits move to divide the punjab and nwfp...many suggest that teh ANP and MQM should now realize what happens when they want other provinces divided and not their own...The PPP should replace Gilani as primeminister who is now a lame duck in non seraiki punjab...many say the provinces of pakistan are teh result of the pakistan resolution and cannot be subverted or broken up...after the failure of teh 19th amendment with nwfp still calling for provincial autonomy teh PPP is getting itself mired in more political trouble with province creation
  • Jan 07-2012--The dailytimes also states that the PPP wants senate elections in february for no political reason but is not willing to hold early national elections...early senate elections can only be justified if they want early national elections and the EC should reject teh PPP move...the PPP supposedly wants national elections in october and wants to negotiate on that...For the PMLn anydate after teh senate elections would be one and the same...October 2012 or April 2013 are not too far apart and the later the better as teh PPP will lose much more easily as their policies are bound to continue to create a negative effect...
  • Jan 06-2012--ASI gunned down in quetta as political killings in karachi continue

  • Jan 06-2012--A strange women only bus was introduced in lahore from RA bazaar to Sanda...its windows are made of wood...!
  • Jan 06-2012--The SC finally realized that baber awan was mocking the SC and asked him to explain his contempt for the court..earlier the court had backed out of challenging asma jehangirs contemptuous assertions...
  • Jan 06-2012--The apparent taleban-interior ministery truce fell apart as 15 kidnapped FC men were found dead
  • Jan 06-2012--The new provinces debate failed to get much support as it seemed tobe about ensuring sindh as teh biggest province and destroying punjab and nwfp...nobody talked about teh divisions in sindh or balochistan where the divisions/regions are obviously badly managed...the biggest laughing point was that the mqm was acting as a PPP stooge since it has no support in seraiki or hazara areas...The ANP which can block the move in teh provincial assembly walked out of teh a national assembly as many thought that new provinces are not allowed under the constitution and at best they can recreate bahawalpur and kalat which were seperate areas before pakistan...
  • Jan 06-2012--It seems that the PPP has finally realized that Asif Zardari was behind the memo and refuse to let him appear in court to explain or defend himself even in writing...It seems that it now accepts general analysis that teh PPP is onits last legs with nothing to defend them as neither their policies nor their leaders are popular...PPP support is falling fast from the general perception of 20% and the PPP now thinks that early elections might help them survive...their attempt to get some ethnic support thru the mqm's seraiki and hazara provinces move has also pathetically backfired...as karachi(mqm) and teh PPP seems to have been looting south punjab's cotton and water and not lahore...there is also a substantial punjabi base which opposes the needless and anti constitutional more provinces move whose single aim is to make sindh the largest province...so they now want early senate elections Feb12 and early national elections Feb23...that way they can go into elections saying they have won the senate elections...but they wont be able to create new provinces as teh ANP opposes and the new senate wont be able to convene before mid march...others say the PPP cant wait for the new electoral rolls as that would harm them considerably in punjab and sindh...they also say that there is agreement on a division of senate seats between teh PMLn and PPP and the PMlq might not get more than two three seats..however given the situation a rebellion might occur amongst provincial assembly members if there are large sums available...!The PPP also now thinks that rallies and meetings might shore up support given teh huge shift in popular votes to imran khan and the PMLn..others suggest that Kiani's visit to china might be to see how the area can survive without teh US...however many say the chinese donot want an open fight with the USA due to trade and oil issues...teh PPP seems to think that teh chinese will support only the PPP but have been unable to get even chinese engines repaired...if elections are not held early kiani might many say push for total control or a coup...The new senate will many say adequately represent the present provincial situation for the first time since the zia ul haq coup...
  • Jan 05-2012--Nawaz Sharif many say should realize that this is not teh nineties and that military courts are not good idea for sindh...that is teh view of his supporters and teh CJ...if there is dakoo raj in sindh than teh police can quite adequately handle teh situation...
  • Jan 05-2012--The memogate commission wants to hear everyone on the issue...zardari, nawaz, army chief etc.
  • Jan 05-2012--full bench of LHC to take up Asif Zardaris refusal to give up political offices and treason by Gilani for refusing to obey court orders
  • Jan 05-2012--five militants killed in Fc clash in Zhob
  • Jan 05-2012--five PPP leaders issued contempt notices by teh Sc for their objectionable comments on teh SC's handling of teh memo issue...PPP is becoming an arch dictatorship considering pieces of paper worthless...they are close to a dictators view that even tehc onstitution is a piece of paper...!
  • Jan 04-2012--The SC says it might not have jurisdiction to advise the president on the ZAB case...In pakistani judicial history the elimination of a former ruler by an illegal military ruler is unique as there is no matching case in which any head of government has been executed barring the military ruler himself...Since a governments function includes elimination of terrorist and secessionist elements the power to eliminate a citizen is in question...usually a governments orders are not questionable...However in the case the FSF chief became a sultani gawah and said he had been ordered to straighten out a politician which he did by ordering an attack on him via military soldiers...there are apparently no records of any such orders...Since Zia Ul Haq was personally antagonistic towards ZAB he and the martial law regime made sure that he could not get away from a hanging in which many say ZAB was kicked by Zia Ul Haq and another military general oversaw the hanging by one tara masih...others say that there was wide spread animosity against ZAB amongst teh judges of the LHC and the SC which were not honest courts and were literally acting as the militaries hangmen...The SC should advise teh president that the SC is against reviews anyway as none have yet succeeded...but he can in a presidential proclamation detail teh case and its injudicial qualities and apologize to teh Bhutto clan for the military government and judiciaries actions...however it might be pointed out that benazir did accept teh same role as primeminister twice and was also eliminated by a militant bomb blast...she also negotiated with teh zia government...while others suggest that a revenge oriented elimination of Zia ul Haq by persons unknown should suffice as a just solution of the issue...
  • Jan 04-2012--dawn says there has been a reduction in suicide attacks in 2011 which went down to 45 from 68/85 in 2010/2009..deaths also went down from 10003 in 2010 to 7107 which includes military related casaulties..terror attacks were highest in Fata 675, balochistan 640, KP 512, karachi 58,sindh 21, punjab 30,GB 26, Islamabad 4, AJK 0
  • Jan 04-2012--The SC which in the last four years has been noisy and bossy but solved no problem warns government to implement the NRO verdict within a week or risk an SC coup...since that is the only way it can handle a government refusal to accept court orders...

  • Jan 04-2012--A taleban office in qatar could solve some amreeka-taleban issues although it would require a defacto peace or ceasefire between teh two...negotiations between teh two have never gotten off as the taleban are not as weak as pakistan which is literally a US appendage in teh area...
  • Jan 04-2012--The PPP again put domestic users of gas in rawalpindi at a disadvantage as gas disappeared in most rawalpindi areas after a government agreement with teh CNG riffraff...
  • Jan 04-2012--many say that altaf hussein and yusuf the seraiki gilani are almost ethnic desperados...a new province wont solve anything...setup a textile city in south punjab so that karachi can no longer loot their cotton...a documentary on khyber tv showed what the pukhtuns have turned peshawar their identity into... compared to the beautiful city of the sixties...piles of garbage everywhere and terrorism...others question whether a matter already subjudice can be presented in parliament...altering a provinces borders means slight adjustments and not creation of new provinces...the mqm which has succumbed to sindhi pressure on karachi is the main proponent of new provinces which are generally opposed..many say that they only want to divide punjab..others say that they will vote against those trying to divide the punjab..we will see how gilani defeats punjabis...!!...others see it as an underhand conspiracy sindhi move to become a bigger province compared to teh present punjab...The PMLn the main party in punjab wants to see a province in bahawalpur and some sort of southern punjab on their own terms...so the measure at present is at best political unless the PPP can bargain with the PMLn...the PMLn could ask the PPP to leave the punjab totally so that it can fight it out with the PTI...many doubt that it will help the PPP or mqm in punjab and nwfp areas as their fortunes are at best drowning in apathy, indifference and discontent in the north..many say sindh can hardly benefit if punjab is divided into three provinces of say 23% 15% 12% although than it could be equivalent to or bigger than say the punjab central and northern areas..in two provinces of say 25% 27% it would become the third largest province and probably lose out in economic terms as well as water distribution as it would no longer be a lower riparian ...
  • Jan 03-2012--The son of the dirty judge Anwarul Haq who was the CJ in the bhutto case files petition from teh zia ul haq side asking for the military regimes documents tobe submitted as well..The PPP and the CJ were thought tobe on teh side of declaring a mistrial given the huge number of people eliminated in pakistan by police, military and intelligence since than...so many suggest what if zulfikar ali bhutto had a few killed when others have killed in teh thousands including the present regime...also the reports of zulfikar ali bhutto having ordered the sultani gawa the FSF chief who got off scot free to straighten out the politician's father killed seem dubious and without foundation...reports of ziaulhaq having tampered with teh judiciary to get a majority verdict were also quite common and teh judges were not all lawyers in those days...with anwarul haq having risen from a deputy commissioners position..
  • Jan 03-2012--ISPR says that american relations crafted by dubious military rulers are now being downgraded to a low key status and pakistan is no longer billing the US for terrorism related expenses and does not want US military officers visits...Pakistan seems to have developed several levels of relationships with teh USA which include american ambassador,top politicians, foreign office, ambassador, military and CIA...many suggest that the relationship should only be at teh foreign office level so that there is no multiplication of politician, military and other individual interests...
  • Jan 03-2012--In what is being seen as teh PPP against domestic consumers with CNG and industrialists in teh opposition things in punjab were unsettled by teh governments gas policy and teh CNG stations strike in punjab and KP...there were protests in rawalpindi and in lahore and the GT road was blocked at five places...while in rawalpindi a police van ran over a SHO who was said tobe unconscious...rawalpindi a cold area saw protests in barha kahu, rawat, faizabad...CNG owners who were benefiting from teh crisis reacted to a statement by asim hussein that cng stations should be closed for a month...with mushroom growth of cng stations most are not making much money...many see government gas distributers in the south and north as not contributing to solve teh problems...The mqm again walked out of the national assembly showing their multiple and dual loyalties as teh PMLn also walked out as their main industrial support started to get worried
  • Jan 03-2012--Altaf Hussein after losing to the police and sindhis in karachi now wants to divide other provinces like the ANP...He also refuses to return teh cotton looted from south punjab by karachis industrialists...!!

  • Jan 02-2012--Asma Jehangir aka Asma Gilani who thought she was a judges pet refuses to represent Hussain Haqqani and committs contempt upon contempt this time ridiculing three high Court CJ's and the entire SC...many suggest that somebody who hides in the presidency and primeministers office must have something to hide...which also shows the contemptible behaviour of teh PPP regime...
  • Jan 02-2012--PPP hellbent on opening supply routes for Nato equipment as US tries to build up a credible afghan army as more US ships berth at karachi...US also restricting almost all aid to pakistan...many see the lull as positive as thing's have started to improve on teh law and order front and politicians feeling free to hold rallies that is barring the PPP who still seem like frightened appeasement oriented rabbits...The taleban also seem willing to restrict their activities to teh Fata if teh ISI does not provide more lists to teh US for drone attacks...there have been no drone attacks since November 17, 2011..Gilani also held a sort of corner meeting in multan with his bully Rehman Malik standing by his side looking like a botox filled dummy...PPP many feel is moving towards its worst showing in any pakistani polls observers say...many suggest that the pakistan armed forces must take control of the port and confiscate all US military equipment until their aid is released...

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...

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...

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...

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...!

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...

from a dawn blog

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

debacle in Dacca

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

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

the chabri wala

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