political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Feb 01--15, 2012

  • 15-Feb-2012--dawn says spare parts dealers up in arms over import of 25000 old cars in last six months...although that should theoretically increase teh need for spare parts...
  • 15-Feb-2012--The government apparently has allowed US food supplies to afghanistan thru teh air thus diluting their power over access to afghanistan...the defence minister saying that we have spent enough on defence ordered five new boeing 777 aircraft for PIA although teh need is greater for mid range aircraft..others suggest that teh airforce may also be refueling US aircraft in teh air...
  • 15-Feb-2012--constitutional amendments have been turned into a joke by teh rubber stamp national assembly...the 20th was passed supposedly unanimously but only 245 came to vote for it showing the meaninglessness of the national assembly and teh constitution..chaudhry nisar got his way on the appointment of a caretaker and now even teh EC can appoint one if teh politicians donot agree..Gilani who has an imported finance minister was probably not correct in assuming that caretakers would no longer be imported...under teh military regime even primeministers have been imported...Gilani too can at best be called a multani or PCO primeminister given his aversion to solving peoples problems and an inability to understand economics and relations with teh USA...the american ambassador apparently now thinks we want only trade and that pakistan's pliable politicians will come around to be stooges again.....apparently the PPP policy is to give every job to someone else since they are usually unable to handle anything...electricity prices to Nepra..gas prices to iran and sindh...caretaker primeminister appointments to teh EC...economic decisions to whoever is available at teh WB or IMF...terrorism to the army...killing SSP walas to rehman malik...straightening out teh mqm to teh anp and PMLq...electricity production to iran..tajikistan...thar coal to whoever can dig thar coal which sindhis find hard todo...etc...etc...etc... and obviously everyother decision to teh SC...!!!zardari, gilani and teh beauricarcy are now free to dance their term away in the plush palaces that former rulers have left behind...! they have however been unable to find anyone to handle balochistan yet...
  • 14-Feb-2012--four die in dera murad janmali bomb blast
  • 14-Feb-2012--The Pakistan army seems tobe running its own Guatanomo with at least 335 persons held in supposedly awful conditions...seven out of eleven held in nwfp were brought to meet their relatives in court and detailed horrific and deadly living conditions...Amina janjua whose husband is still missing says that of teh 1065 picked up by military agencies since 2001 more than half have been released...however in 2011...95 more went missing of which 43 were from punjab and seventeen from balochistan and 25 from KP..
  • 14-Feb-2012--The dawn states that Gilani could get a six month sentence and would probably not be disqualified..however he could reach a compromise with teh court on writing the letter...Nawaz Sharif critisizes teh PPP allies for having no understanding of right and wrong and Imran Khan syas Gillani has lost teh moral authority to rule...
  • 14-Feb-2012--Gilani refuses to accept contempt charges in teh 2009 NRO decision and court orders secretary law to present teh record on 22 february...it looks like Gilani becoming a permanent loser and interest has started to fade in the case as he may not last in power beyond the next month...in most contempt cases courts usually donot back down...aitezaz might finally have to quit looking at the blanket immunity for zardari that he claims and study the actions of Gilani as immunity might not be a defence as it only comes into play if teh swiss start teh cases and the GOP claims immunity until the presidency is over...the judges also have questioned why Gilani did not respond to teh NRO orders and inform teh court of his inability to write teh letter and restart teh thousands of NRO cases...one defence that gilani could adopt is that the letter would be written after Zardari quits the presidency...!!
  • 13-Feb-2012--Gilani to appear in court to hear contempt chargesheet...!!bakhtawar probably is unaware that this case is not teh result of any victimisation and it wont go down well with public if Gilani is jailed or disqualified...not many will vote for the PPP when their third premier also ends up being crooked and in jail......Gilani already regarded as a mixed bag of uncertainties...being unable todo anything about drones , price hikes, economy, railways, terrorism, attacks on nato trailers, balochistan and karachi violence and zardaris swiss history...add to that his wifes 200 million loan written off and his corruption as speaker national assembly where he apparently took commissions to buy cars and made illegal multani apointments...one also has to remember that the PPP refused to start an accountability program against teh previous government just to remain in power with dubious allies...the only saving grace for teh PPP is that their ethnic natured allies have nowhere else to go...
  • 12-Feb-2012--State Bank says inflationary pressures, declining dollar, misgovernance and external repayments makes controlling deficits impossible...what with a budget that started out with a 40 % deficit...
  • 12-Feb-2012--Taleban shura condemns on the army in north waziristan...!!
  • 12-Feb-2012--The army starts court martial against Brig Ali Khan arrested in teh aftermath of teh abbottabad attack...apparently he wanted some army heads to roll for the US sneak invasion which apparently was allowed by tehc ountries top leadership...with such a huge army infrastructure nobody interfered as US helicopters flew into abbottabad and left with Ossama's body...!
  • 11-Feb-2012--three ASWJ and ST men shot dead in karachi
  • 11-Feb-2012--11 militants kille din kurram conflict
  • 11-Feb-2012--The issue of missing persons which has been unresolved because of teh various militant, liberation and intelligence organisations involved sees no resolution in balochistan as the SC finally succeeds in getting teh MI to bring some suspects to teh courts...
  • 11-Feb-2012--The unsoluble balochistan issue is coming to the fore with the US congress interfering in pakistans internal affairs on teh issue and the pakistani courts and legislatures showing minor interest...Gilani apparently could not say a word on teh issue in parliament and teh interior minister reluctantly said that we cannot talk to belligerents and offered a presentation on teh issue...The almost do nothing PPP regime in balochistan and issues of sectarianism, political killings and bombings and ethnic murders by liberation groups leave no mode for any sort of solution since the liberation groups barely have enough support and the government no viable policy and it just keeps on going...
  • 11-Feb-2012--The SC kicks out aitezaz appeal against Gilani's contempt hearing...If Gilani pleads not guilty to comtempt charges that are tobe framed on teh 13th he could surely be heading for jail and the leaderless PPP would be looking for some other non leader to take them into elections...since teh PPP is full of second tier unpopular politicians who donot have any feeling for the populace,government or the economy many think that a new leader could announce early elections soon after the senate elections to project a new PPP rather than the derelict organisation left behind by benazir...many are now getting quite sick of teh shouting speeches and teh non interest in popular politics..it is doubtful that the PPP can gain any popular support for standing upto teh army or the judiciary
  • 11-Feb-2012--The indian pir amin faheem says elections to be held in 2013 contradicting the sindh home minister
  • 10-Feb-2012--Manzoor Wassan says elections will be held on October 18...!
  • 10-Feb-2012--In the contempt case the Gilani lawyer continued his unnecessary rhetoric and teh CJ objected to attempts on aitezaz ahsans part to politicize the case and suggest that one action could create teh liberty to not follow a court order...gilani seems tobe suggesting that the PPP's democracy should not require him to follow the courts NRO order...while many others have suggested that if this is democracy than it was a democracy before to...while others have suggested that teh courts have not let off military dictators despite an appeasement orientation but parliaments and politicians...Musharaf too was allowed to leave teh country by this very government. Aitezaz ahsan also made teh comical suggestion that Gilani was also a PCO primeminister and should be given unnecessary liberties...too...Aitezaz finally deleted three objectionable paragraphs from his appeal against allowing teh contempt case to proceed...The CJ said that he must advise Gilani as his lawyer to write teh letter while Aitezaz suggested that the courts were making it a matter of ego...The letter instruction is clearly doable and is meaningless according to even teh defence's point of view...
  • 09-Feb-2012--10 militants killed in a north waziristan drone attack while offering prayers
  • 09-Feb-2012--ISI says that masood janjua a disappeared travel agent with religious tendencies was planted by teh CIA with al qaeda suicide controllers who killed him and buried him in south waziristan for carrying sattelite monitored bugs...
  • 09-Feb-2012--The frightened punjab chief minister appoints special assistant(not specified whether he is an mpa or not)as health minister
  • 09-Feb-2012--military claims severing militant supply routes after pitched battles in the Jogi mountains...dawn says some militant bases remain in the Tirah area
  • 09-Feb-2012--JUI leader shot dead in chaman
  • 09-Feb-2012--As expected teh DGMO and the US(nato and ISAF) resumed talks without any directive from parliament at Torkham...The talks aimed at teh meaningless one sided US policy of retaliating against pakistan...pakistan military is always uneasy when it is not on a talking basis to teh US military..many suggest that pakistan should break off all military relations with teh USA apart from any requirement for military purchases which should many think not be related to governmental subjugation...the same many suggest is also applicable to teh meaningless economic cooperation and financial aid...
  • 09-Feb-2012--20th amendment bill unable tobe passed as PPP and PMLn talk about how to hold next elections...
  • 09-Feb-2012--In what could turn out to be teh new version of teh chief justices nura kushti a bench was hurriedly created to hear Gilanis appeal against a seven judge bench which ordered Gilani tobe chargeable for contempt and is almost ready to pass a sentence against Gilani for contempt...The appeal goes in direct opposition to its own views that teh seven judge bench was quickly moving towards a decision without giving it a proper hearing...many think that teh president might indeed be a real criminal as he suggests an illogical worldwide immunity for criminal acts....such an immunity cannot be allowed to any human suggests Baber Awan as even God has to answer for his actions...there is also teh case of Hazrat Umar who was questioned asto why he had appropriated more to himself than an ordinary citizen...Aitezaz Ahsans reasoning that teh swiss case had already been concluded proves that writing a letter would have no consequence at all and the primeminister and president were mocking teh judiciary just as they are teh military and thus obviously guilty of contempt...
  • 09-Feb-2012--The PPP which in teh last four years has only implemented its divide and rule policy on provinces now thinks it can fool the people by suggesting to its dumb primeminister that relief be provided to teh people in teh next or its last budget and that heads will roll who had been consistently devising anti people policies......many regard teh PPP as autocratic and unable to understand even teh basic needs of teh people...they seem to think that advertisements satisfy people...!
  • 08-Feb-2012--US considering to apologize for teh attack on pakistans borders...however many consider the US tobe unreliable and it must guarantee no attacks inside or onits borders
  • 08-Feb-2012--The confused PPP is being riduculed by various allies and their various new province bills...teh nationalists in sindh also oppose teh move and many suggest that punjab would be much happier if its divisions were all turned into provinces..that would at least equalize development in teh much maligned area....The PPP has a strange policy of not working on new provinces in sindh and balochistan but wanting to break the much broken punjab further to increase sindhi power...the punjab has already been broken into four provinces...karachi and teh vast balochistan could be more viable for the new provinces move...teh PPP logic that it does not apply to sindh and teh anp logic that it does not apply to nwfp and only teh liberal punjab can be broken up show the negative anti punjab nature of teh PPP...with one of its allies even having opposed dividing karachi into four districts
  • 08-Feb-2012--The fall of teh armies power is seen in an SC case asking it to restrict the unstable PPP regime from removing teh unremovable generals
  • 08-Feb-2012--PPP to force thru its 20th amendment as PMLn unable to force agreement on a caretaker setup and election commission
  • 07-Feb-2012--another soldier dies in the lower kurram militant attack...while government says that it has received teh 18 new and ten old F-16s while its 35 older F-16's are also being upgraded...with the indians buying 125 french rafales pakistans air superiority would be regarded as limited to teh next few years...teh F-16's are apparently used for bombing militants in fata...
  • 07-Feb-2012--three gas pipelines from teh Loti gasfield blown up...railway track also blownup near dera murad jamali... as karachi police unable to nab domki killers which issue was raising hackles in teh balochistan assembly and SC
  • 07-Feb-2012--defence minister says he cant improve the working of PIA...why a PIA deputy managing director lives in dubai is also unexplainable...PIA..most of whose planes are old and unusable and which works on world class salaries and pakistani class operations is losing out to arab airlines which connect to almost teh entire world with thai air having daily flights from its main hub to every important place in asia and europe...PIA is usually only profitable to places where pakistans major immigrant populations are concentrated...one should think that a change at teh aging defence ministry could positively affect its working and the do nothing minister should be thinking of retirement..many say PIA could be more effective just flying to saudia, UAE, england and new york...?PIA should also start thinking of shorthaul flights to domestic destinations as well...with the railways going out of bussiness...!others say that most of the people on teh bussiness train to karachi were railways officials...how they can spend 220 million on a train boggles teh mind...the only change seems tobe more staff and replaced seats...
  • 07-Feb-2012--The IMF says pakistans economy is highly vulnerable...it has always been like this since the 1960's although we have reached exceptional heights in tax collections with most governments apart from military regimes always protesting teh shortage of funds...the present federal government is the teh worst example in pakistans history on funds utilization and development...The world bank on teh other hand says teh economy is improving...pakistans politicians still want even more tax hikes and price hikes...the negatives in this economy are barely mentioned by teh WB and IMF...ie energy shortages and how to control tax hikes and price hikes...obviously the methods suggested by teh IMF and teh PPP regime are clearly unworkable...many suggest that the governments should stop creating more energy needs and stop wasting funds on meaningless roads, airports, armed forces, housing, industry until the country reaches a relative energy equilibrium...
  • 07-Feb-2012--consensus on the meaningless 20th amendment bill was stymied after teh PPP insisted on having its own man leading a caretaker electoral regime...elections under a non caretaker regime/non independent election commission are usually never acceptable given teh exceptional powers of an incumbent government in pakistan with teh courts usually unable to determine fraudulent elections
  • 07-Feb-2012--pakistans money minting industrialists true face was further made uglier when 20 died as a factory collapsed in lahore...industrialists are making teh people suffer by creating gas and electricity shortages...! the provincial government developed widespread pharma industry has been shown tobe producing drugs without proper regulation for consumption in government hospitals...with bad quality controls..even a better known relatively efroze pharmaceutical company cannot explain how malaria medicine is mixed with angina medication......punjab governor khosa has suggested that the two health ministers running teh show ie yusuf razaz gilani and shabaz sharif should be hanged for negligence in regulating drugs...drug regulation has been handled by teh federal DG health...upto the present...
  • 07-Feb-2012--the crooks running the PPP show Asim Hussein and hafeez sheikh were suspended from parliament after the government failed to achieve any consensus on teh 20th amendment...the correct process was that the illegally elected people should resign and new bye elections held rather than get a constitutional amendment that elections can be held under an improperly constituted EC..The constitution, SC and parliament were thus reduced to a farce when meaningless constitutional amendments were discussed but not real issues affecting teh people...The SC suspended the membership of 28 people suspiciously elected many of whom donot even have a claim to representing teh population...
  • 05-Feb-2012--Balochistan remained shutdown for the third day running against the killings in karachi of Brahmdagh Bugtis sister and her daughter also Akber Bugtis granddaughter and great granddaughter..two others were killed in a protest at a bridge over teh river nari near Sibi after a confontation with security forces...those killed were also teh wife and daughter of a balochistan mpa...the killings are regarded possibly as a retaliation against the BRP...in a related move teh JI moved a bill in teh NA to control intelligence agencies who are seen as running vendettas and even the relations with foreign powers..teh bill is also aimed at restricting teh transfer of people to foreign countries and objectionable detention powers exercised by teh military run agencies...many regard pakistans intelligence agencies as sponsors of state terrorism...
  • 04-Feb-2012--If india finds hafiz saeeds utterances objectionable than it too should block anti pakistani utterances by its religious, nationalist and extremist groups...even if one goes by ajmal kasab's rendition than he only attended one friday meeting of teh religious orator..india should realize that unless it moves to solve teh kashmir issue and arrests anti pakistani indians such things cannot be dealt with effectively by pakistan in isolation what to talk of the terrorism espoused by teh indian army
  • 04-Feb-2012--Government jacks up domestic LPG cylinder cost by 188 while LPG suppliers say government is earning 10 times the cost of production...government enhancing local prices in gas and LPG to finance imports they say
  • 04-Feb-2012--two policemen shot dead in karachi...four die in pishtakhara car blast..one FC men dies in bara..
  • 04-Feb-2012--Imran Khan urges teh SC to stay bye elections until proper electoral rolls are available..
  • 04-Feb-2012--in teh Kurram conflict eight soldiers and 24 militant attackers killed
  • 04-Feb-2012--The contrasting views of the government and the leader of teh opposition on elections were evident of teh conflicts amongst pakistani politicians...an independent election commission and a caretaker government...with Gilani also now seeking early elections since his own fate is drowning fast with reports of his taking over or leap frogging the racketeering zardaris in corruption figures and literally knocking out the zardaris politically who want to drag along on benazirs image and have no image left outside sindh...the convoluted BISP image which started out honestly but now has conflicting aims...more but funds not available...if funds are not available for teh basic function than how will other functions be covered......it is better to control teh economy, jobs and prices than dole small amounts for electricity, health insurance and poverty assistance and bigger amounts for running bussinesses and education...Bisp trying to turn into a bank like teh economics minister who wants to loan out tax revenues rather than utilizing them for proper purposes......similarly the PMln views of doling out houses, cars and education slots to a tiny number of teh populace is also seen as ineffective...both sides are attempting to create a group of afficionadas that are being helped out...poverty is quite widespread and the small target groups barely help those that need assistance...
  • 03-Feb-2012--In what is being seen as teh political opportunism of Aitezaz Ahsan and Gilani to vituperate on teh immunity issue... the SC judges quickly put a stop to aimless posturing and asked gilani to appear before teh court again on teh 13th to perhaps clarify his views and whether he wanted to change his stance or not...many suggest that allegations that gilani was involved in a 600 million scam might have prompted the judges so that events such as elections or the resigination of gilani might not end the case without a decision...
  • 03-Feb-2012--The toothless national assembly reluctantly suggested that teh government withdraw oil price hikes while teh equally powerless primeminister said that he would see what he could do...no wonder teh people want to take all teh issues to teh SC...the national assembly has been a silent spectator as teh PPP regime rides roughshod over teh economy into shattering peoples lives thru price hikes and shortages
  • 03-Feb-2012--PPP regime raises brick prices to Rs8500 per thousand after threatening to impose a sales tax

  • 02-Feb-2012--The war in upper kurram continued with airforce bombing 38 militants to death
  • 02-Feb-2012--The do nothing anti army chief...primeminister could be indicted if logic of immunity is not proven says SC...Gilani who has been the most ineffective primeminister yet thinks that presidents or primeministers should not have to answer for criminal charges such as those of corruption...the immunity many say is only for normal acts of government and does not extend to corruption or criminal acts...one judge remarked that Gilani was following beaurocratic advice but not orders of teh SC..
  • 02-Feb-2012--The other anti people minister asim hussein has conflicting logic for solving teh gas crisis...evil price hikes...apparently they have not even started building teh gas pipeline from iran...which will take another three years...price hikes apparently to attract foreign investment which is obviously going teh other way round...PPP's price hikes in the energy sector have only seen greater shortfalls in the gas and electricity sector...PPP management of gas supply to teh domestic sector sees gas shutdowns during teh entire day and most of teh night in rawalpindi...many suggest that sindh looting punjab thru higher gas prices and restricting or literally in teh case of rawalpindi stopping gas supplies...
  • 02-Feb-2012--meanwhile teh evil natured PPP interior minister cannot see teh hand behind teh killings in karachi which are almost the same as the policies enunciated by altaf hussein thruout his anti pakistani politics run from london...the only major groups or parties involved in sindh are the mqm and PPP who are diametrically opposed to teh people being killed...
  • 02-Feb-2012--Shabaz sharif in response to animosity prone propaganda from the khosa's and the PPP responded with action against a karachi based firm suggesting they were mixing malaria medicine with anti angina medicine Isotab supposedly the most famous medicine produced by efroze chemicals of karachi...the PPP has been running a meaningless evil propaganda war against teh punjab now fronted by the crookish lawyer Latif khosa after baber awan was knocked out by teh SC
  • 01-Feb-2012--In teh continuing PIC scandal in which over a hundred peopel have died supposedly due to medication reactions manufactured in pakistan.Many suggest that it could be due to known side effects, natural deaths or over medication...the medicines are generally standard prescriptions...Governor Latif Khosa moved to further create a farce as his son filed a case suggesting that a hamza shabaz/shahbaz sharif owned company Al Falah Pharma was involved which had been given supply contracts all over teh province and that teh federal government was not involved in teh unapproved manufacture of teh medicines...medicine regulation is still the function of teh federal government while teh purchaser is teh provincial health deptt and prescribed by the PIC...no advisory has yet been issued to not use specific medicines concerned...
  • 01-Feb-2012--The PPP's inability to run a steady economy mirrored in another oil price hike as HSD reaches the unprecedented level of Rs 103.46 and petrol jumps to Rs 94.91..oil prices could rise further as teh unsteady US iran/gulf policies are zigzagging all over teh place..
  • 01-Feb-2012--35 militants and 8 security personnel killed in what can at best be described as the militaries flailing away at whatever stone is thrown...Kurram not previously known for militancy but more for tribal sectarianism...fighting has centered around Jogi which lies on the movement path of militants from various tribal regions
  • 01-Feb-2012--relatives have been allowed to meet some militants involved in attacks on the military in rawalpindi kept at the LRH peshawar who said they were not properly looked after
  • 01-Feb-2012--six FC men killed in ziarat area after being attacked by militants..six militants killed in Kohat frontier region near darra adamkhel in clashes with teh military
  • 01-Feb-2012--various types of terrorism continued in karachi with a doctor killed, an attack on a mobile franchise killing two and a bank robbery...while attacks on mobile franchises are new.. bank robberies and killing doctors are said tobe typical mqm revenge acts and collection of resources for elections since the mqm's typical local government financing has been restricted...?others suggest that the military and ISI also involved in robbing banks to fund politicians and their marriages...

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...

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...!

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

power crisis

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

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?
rejected as a revolutionary because he repeated the stuff others had already tried...this country has already seen crazies and coupplotters who wanted to set things right but who eventually returned to the status quo ..the country has seen reforms, constitutions, martial laws, provisional constitutions,revolutions, harsh crackdowns of various shapes but still was left with the same set of crooked politicians...tobe a revolutionary u really cannot be a mullah and have the establishment's candidate tagging along...u have tobe unchallenged and be able to subdue everyone into silence...u have also need of new ideas, methods and obviously a way to topple a government and dominate the army and beaurocracy as well as teh populace...just beating up the already subdued/subjugated police does not look very revolutionary anymore and shouting speeches are really old hat...nobody was frightened and the army said we have already done all that several times already...!...back to canada it is for the failed revolutionary...

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

beneficial tobe in government
it is still beneficial tobe in government...shah mahmood qureshi has ten illegal electricity connections in one house in multan...nawaz sharif in one go has gotten rid of twenty year old references...dawn sees the dharnas as an unguided missile they dont know where they are going and change direction everyday...and Go Nawaz Go is plastered on islmabad traffic and lane signs...it has also been heard in national assembly committee and several government functions in lahore...Imran Khn apparently thinks that the containerstop(dharna) is just the last stop before they jump into government...!

the situation..

the situation..
blasts, metro and a huge PTI rally in lahore...Imran Khan goes for rallies but does not want to end the dharna which has outlived its utility...Nawaz Sharif seen as defensive behind the barriers says he is still working while others see his government as unable to handle things...Bomb blasts have resumed while karachis burn and kill politics continues despite an year long operation in which the Rangers say they targeted everyone...the most effected were religious groups, criminals and the lyari groups...mqm says its 45 were killed but they still have their firepower intact say others...so the situation is now almost similar to PPP rule...a government seen as ineffective, bomb blasts and a resurgent PTI threatening to have the primeminister removed thru the SC...does the primeminister have enough immunity...things could turn out differently with the 2013 elections being hounded into the ground...Dawn suggests that a south punjab diversion thru parliaments could be the way out...but it is difficult for the punjab when everyone rejects a mohajir sooba and a hazara sooba...

all but over...

all but over...
its all but over...even if an election is held in three or six months the huge support of PMLn not expected to shift to PTI-qadri...their meanness is too dangerous for their elite...the dhandli was but a ruse...with the floods and mean and nasty natures of imran khan and tahir ul qadri containergate is all but over...it is just left for them to decide when to paddle back to lahore...the floods were devastating but while the nasty containers wiped the smiles off the faces of the lohars of jati umra they were satisfied to a certain extent that they could not fool the SC and the corp commanders...it is just a hyde park for imran khan he can make as many speeches he likes and when his throat starts to wither he can head home like javed hashmi...

half in half out

half in half out
half in half out...there is really nothing to smile about...while qadri who here looks like Modi here has got what he wants Imran Khan lacking political sense does not know what todo...everyone else says go home we will manage it...imran khan only knows how to play tough cop and is unaware that u sometimes have to throw matches just to achieve an end...both seem to have behind the scenes conspirators who are not worried by what they do or achieve or the trouble and damage they do to themselves and the country

the mediator

the mediator
The National Assembly which has failed to represent the people under attack by two clonelike formations with no interest inits survival...further damage has been done by bringing in the army chief as a final mediator...a coup in but name...!..earlier reports that the army might be behind the street demos...earlier even Qadri was making claims that he was here to defend Nawaz Sharif otherwise there would be a coup...PMLn had made attempts earlier to draw in the army chief...however the utter failure to reach a decision has increased the army chiefs strength...it is yet tobe seen what leverage he has on the two attackers...

degs and sidekicks

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

situation changes

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

the rabble rousers

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

shallow

shallow
teh shallow nature of Nawaz Sharifs policies seems very apparent when u look at how his taleban containment policy has worked out and his some say idiotic policy on india and obviously many donot think he has any policy on sectarianism...most governments tilt towards teh shiites who are regarded as serious sunni killing machines too...teh taleban were supposedly his friends who troubled his opponents into smithereens... and his disliked budget and his policies that seem just ordinary at times...his dragging along of nargis sethi when she should be retired...is another case in point...!and his interior minister was fast asleep at home as the karachi terror attack took place and NS could not find him because he was asleep too...!

an apt description

an apt description
an apt description for the PMLn attitude...! as an afterthought even after the budget had been presented teh PMLn regime which is attempting to impose sales tax on shoes, clothes,medicines etc.they announced a one billion handout or a pilot program for the pooorest poor 's health insurance...unlike Obama they did not ask teh poor to pay for that too...

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing
altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing,...as altaf's arrest in london was announced for corruption he was sent to hospital for ordinary blood checks which can be conducted in a few minutes..rumours of a blocked artery stalled the british police...ever since he formed the mqm with a group of others who he has had killed he has blackmailed the pakistani governments continuously on the base of support of a majority ethnic group of karachiites...all governments benazir, ziaulhaq, nawaz sharif, musharaf, PPP, PMLn, ANP did his bidding but he always ended up trying to seperate karachi as a province or state...the "mein na manoon" ran as the operations started in karachi and decimated his 3000 man army...for twenty years he kept up the rigmarole of killing opponents, bhatta and blackmailing one government after the other...he now has the support of another east punjabi mohajir nawaz sharif who quickly issued him a passport and nicop...the british hid him from sight in a hospital on the ruses of an illness...having gotten fat over the last twenty years life in calm britain does not suit him...but the british many say want the killers of imran farook and than he might make another attempt at life in pakistan...otherwise british jails are a very comfortable place too...the mqm has karachi in a dither and everyone looking on to see how they get out of this situation...!!!

the empty grave

the empty grave
democracy is an organized process and one cannot as they say run wild like the PAT and PTI...The PMLn also unable to control them...In the PPP era the same container mullah was used to threaten to create an mqm type terrorist politico but whoever controlled the strings pulled out...now in a different government with the pathetic duo of sharifs unable to handle the agitation cum protest and are in fact trying to buildup two demagogues or demonizers...unless the sharifs step into the qadri grave the status quo cannot change...The people are not worried about a change in power but the armed forces can be frightened of the inability to handle as well as the prospects of two demons who wont accept normal control mechanisms...that frightens the army more than a rough and tumble few weeks...with qadri attempting to suggest that he can form and run a dunda army in the punjab and imran khan showing off his tremendous support things cannot change too much unless the sharifs cut and run...nawaz sharif trying to placate both amid the vulnerability of unpopular rule which is more dangerous...qadri and imran khan can see the weakness...the only option for the sharifs is also to use their popular support which could be difficult to galvanize in times of trouble but good for a vote...creating an mqm type terror outfit which could with imran khan make substantial changes in an election scenario..but the elections are too far and how much support will nawaz sharif lose by that time...he can easily frighten a lot of people to vote for him again...the race between the azadi and inqilabi marches is nearing an end but it could develop into a lower economic front backlash for the sharifs...eventually shahbaz sharif will have to go as he has turned into a toothless tiger batted around by the violence prone PAT/MWM/PTI...!!!

french revolutionaries

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

the azadi march

the azadi march
imran khan the hardened pukhtun warrior literally lunges into nawaz sharif's pleasure trip or final trip as primeminister...probably fedup sitting in opposition wants the sharifs to go home for good now...!while a handshake with the PMLn tigers tail might look odd at this time...while the PMLn finds a huge 200 feet pole for the flag raising...!independence or azadi is meant to celebrate rather than protest...azadi does not really mean that u can do anything ...!

change

change
the winds of change ..usually means a fresh pro people change in government...with ishaq dar killing any love for the government with high electricity bills...imran khan looking for a change most likely in the top position of punjab...khawaja saad rafik seems tobe ogling the chief ministry with a demonstration of his ability to handle and explain things...would that be enough for imran khan...many suggest kicking the dubious judiciary out of the electoral process...

emerging from teh underground

emerging from teh underground
emerging from the underground/hiding and resurfacing in the USA...The Zardari's after nawaz sharif started facing problems with qadri's and imran khan's...we ar'nt frightened of a four seat recount they say...!...there wont be any suicide bombers in washington...son..!!!

the fake revolutionary

the fake revolutionary
the fake revolutionary and the failed revolution...in the sixties the communists always wanted a body to create political nuisance value by running withit thru the streets...it never really worked here...now the fake revolutionary a topi wearing firebrand television evangelist living in canada created an event where he rioted and fired at the police causing the death of his men and nearly succeeded they say but for the dumb....than he said a revolution was near...today...tommorrow...whenever it is announced...!a truckdriver can be a revolutionary but a canadian mullah mouthing socialistic pipedreams of jobs for the people...nobody believes that ...neither the army or the people...!!!however the people who rioted for him seemed trained to riot and probably many said were ISI workers or even the work of hamza shahbaz sharif...!a revolutionary industrialist...!!nah...

just Rs.600

just Rs.600
while just Rs.600 to 350000 poor families of KP per month might not be much but still the PTI uses it to demonstrate its charitability...many feel that the tribals what with their smuggling, dacoities and bhatta were already quite well off...

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

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

debacle in Dacca

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

the chabri wala

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