muzzling the courts...!

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

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases

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

the chakri crook

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

gaye bhans politics

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

end of nawaz sharif

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

banigala

banigala house

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

The SC and article 62...

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

political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

raheel shareef

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Mar 01--15 2012

  • Mar15-2012--pakistani dies in nato firing at chagai border..five tribal elders die in a taleban remote bomb blast in mamond tehsil...six militants killed in Bara operation
  • Mar15-2012--The wealthy lawyer Aitezaz Ahsan who is trying to convince teh judiciary that he is a good cop defending a crooked primeminister...aitezaz does not believe what teh primeminister is doing is teh right thing but is still defending him which makes him equally culpable..aitezaz said that he is one of teh few PPP leaders paying taxes to teh tune of 12.3 million...one hopes they are not electricity bills that Nawaz Sharif claimed were taxes too...many question that if going to jail is considered essential why Gilani is not sending his PPP wala's or children to jail...many suggest that in teh PPP losing an election is also very good for some as Aslam Gill ends up as an advisor after losing teh senate election...
  • Mar15-2012--The PPP regime and military unable to handle a decision on keeping relations with teh USA above board...with benefits only to politicians and military people find it difficult to understand why teh government is supporting the USA at its own peril...especially when things like drone attacks and teh unusually long unending Nato supply line causes more problems to pakistan than being of any help...It is felt that pakistan should cease its dependency on drone attacks and only allow Nato goods which are essential such as petroleum and food...unending military supplies which have been constantly pouring into afghanistan can only destabilize teh situation in teh future...for any benefits to pakistan Nato should buy supplies from pakistan many say rather than import them from around teh world...It is essential for teh USA to leave teh region...pakistan should stop supporting drone attacks, providing a military supply line and stop teh dangerous games played by teh US CIA...If our military cant do without training with reference to security guards and the FC than they should develop their training capacity rather than invite US marines and contractors...also allowing commando type operations by teh US military also seems hazardous...it seems quite apparent that teh country can do without Lugar aid too as well as US military equipment since they are only going tobe fighting internal insurgencies...That leaves only military spares for teh equipment that we have such as Orions, helicopters and F-16's and their ammunitions/replacements...the country also should develop indigenous sattelite monitoring capabilities...whether parliament can provide clearer guidelines is doubtful with people like chaudhry Nisar having their families in teh USA..The military and PPP ready to jump into the firing line again...upto Ossama ben laden teh situation was different and now it is different...The US should plan to leave afghanistan rather than continuing their stay for reasons that are not favorable to teh region...
  • Mar15-2012--The National Assembly calls for comprehensive legislation to organize teh working of teh countries spy agencies...this in the context of missing persons and extra judicial killings which are said tobe frequent in karachi and balochistan although for different reasons...In karachi unidentified motorcyclists have been gunning down religious party activists as well as ethnic extremists with nobody ever knowing who killed whom...how they cannot be identified is thought to be their association with ethnic oriented parties, police killer squads and obviously intelligence agencies and teh provincial governments...In balochistan too sectarian and ethnic killings result in nobody being identified...however one notices that in contrast in lahore videos of those involved in teh sri lankan cricket team attacks surfaced immediately...The SC too is looking into indirect funding by teh ISI thru controversial banks while even Younis Habib suggests that they were not ISI funds but money from teh coffers of several banks...while most politicians have become rich overtime many suggest that teh source of funds like teh state run banks is sometimes said tobe controversial like the huge loans enjoyed by some families...The SC and national assembly should both work together to control teh illegitimate funding of politicians and the ISI and IB should not support their operatives participating in elections or even running politicians thru surreptitious funding...This is also the same reasoning in teh SC wanting cases against zardari for taking commissions in cases like teh agosta and SGS tobe reopened...Many suggest that legislation on how politicians fund their elections including commissions/profit sharing and how agencies operate in teh domain of sectarian/ethnic politics,subversive/secessionary activities need to have clear cut legislation..there are rumours of all types why some incidents take place...many suggest they involve undercover intelligence operatives being transferred or promoted...or being fired...!
  • Mar14-2012--Drone attacks have increased again as 14 killed in two attacks in fata
  • Mar14-2012--The spineless PPP according to the Dawn is going to appoint retiring spy chief pasha to head teh strategic command where Kidwai has been enjoying i think a decade of extensions...many suggest that Pasha was behind accusations that teh PPP is soft on strategic nukes and the liberation of kashmir...whereby Asif zardari had suggested that kashmir would be solved by teh future generations while we try to make money by importing useless indian goods...!Pasha many say could not handle indian accusations and propaganda and literaly shutdown all attempts at a kashmir solution...earlier musharaf had said that teh kashmir cause was only hurting teh kashmiris and intra kashmir trade and a transport link would solve teh issue...however that was teh conclusion of teh simla agreement too and it never helped move india towards a solution...we now have full fledged trade and low level transport links with the pakistani policy that teh kashmir solution, trade, terrorism etc should be seen in different contexts..many say pakistani governments increasingly seen as subjugated to indian hegemony especially with india diverting river waters by building dams and diverting water...
  • Mar13-2012--Gilani recently said that there would be no new taxes while teh economic minister according to teh Dawn suggests a 16% sales tax on hydel power...if it is just on profits than it is a different matter...however a sales tax already exists on electricity sales and teh imposition of sales tax on hydel power would further increase electricity prices by 5%...taxing teh same thing twice at different levels is not proper...government should reduce spending in line with resources and not introduce unnecessary new taxes or go after further international loans...spending on useless avenues such as agriculture should be restricted and focus should be on teh countries problem areas only...
  • Mar12-2012--suicide blast at funeral near Badabher kills 16
  • Mar12-2012--Dawn says that Younis Habib was a financial crook...?
  • Mar12-2012--The US going bonkers in afghanistan ..first teh koran burning and now a soldier goes and kills 16 civilians...many suggest US starting to fight a covert war in afghanistan...
  • Mar12-2012--Gilani refuses to write a letter to teh swiss authorities to reopen asif zardaris corruption cases citing immunity...he forgets that immunity does not cover corruption and criminal actions...Asif Zardari will however have immunity for all normal government activities that he undertakes as president...The primeminister and foreign minister however donot have any constitutional immunity of any sort...It seems certain that Gilani could be sentenced to a nominal six months of contempt...and since Asif zardari fired teh senate chairman he could easily appoint a more popular primeminister to take teh PPP into elections without teh incumbent ruining any chances of victory
  • Mar11-2012--six pro government militia men killed in Dera Bugti
  • Mar11-2012--47 killed in Bara cleanout as military takes on teh LI lashkar...killed includes four FC soldiers and four civilians
  • Mar11-2012--Gilani publicly castigates intelligence agencies and FC telling them to respect teh mandate of teh balochistan government which has made a mockery of democracy by including almost everyone in teh government..others suggest that Gilani is developing a public anti military attitude as he could easily have called teh interior minister who runs teh FC or the army chief who provides teh manpower...inter alia he is again suggesting that the military is following its own agenda and is not taking orders from teh government..supposedly FC works under teh chief minister and intelligence agencies work under teh primeminister and army chief...
  • Mar11-2012--Younis Habib says he personally made payments to Nawaz Sharif and in teh next elections supported the PPP against Nawaz Sharif...by funding teh maulanas...
  • Mar11-2012--The PPP banns the Maulana ludhianvi run ASWJ...The government, mqm and shiite groups are accused of gunning down AWSJ workers in karachi while in punjab PPP leaders have won with direct support from teh descendants of teh SSP...the SSP and shiite militants had run a retaliatory killing war in teh seventies and eighties...some aspects of which have emerged in karachi and balochistan
  • Mar10-2012--The duality of sindhis exposed by their provincial assembly...they rush thru a resoltion against wall chalkings in karachi supporting a mohajir province but never even dare to even comment on sindhu desh...The controversial MQM has been tasked by teh sindhis to divide punjab and nwfp so that they can get a bigger role for sindh...The PMln willing to even divide the seraikis by creating bahawalpur...while Gilani of teh PPP only supports a seraiki province...considering bahawalpur , karachi and hazara province heresies...many however feel that potohar too has some reason for being a new province while many feel that teh countries divsions should be turned into provinces so that development can be spread relatively equally and seperatism and ethnicism dented...
  • Mar10-2012--The foreign ministry says that some countries have stated that they will not help baloch seperatists...while teh exiting Senate deputy chairman says teh PPP regime is involved in a conspiracy to force secession in balochistan by evading responsibility in serious aspects such as international involvement and not doing anything about forced disappearances
    and dumping of bodies...he also says that senate will probably be headed by by Nayyar Bukhari and Sabir Baloch of teh PPP
  • Mar10-2012--The Mehrangate scandal of ISI payouts to politicians reached an almost dead end when teh former army chief said that asad durrani and younis habib were trying to mislead teh court...however Baig suggested that he had appeared before three different SC chiefs and refuted teh Gilani assertions that important appearances before teh national assembly and SC were something new...in the nineties asad durrani who was a former ISI chief and at that time the PPP ambassador to germany had refused to return home tobe tried...he remained in exile in germany for several years..PMLn also refuted teh allegations and said that they had revealed teh scandal of payments to teh PPP president's Razi farm in DG khan...The PPP is becoming known for getting payments for front companies such as those of Gilanis wife...Asghar Khan a controversial person who wanted to hang bhutto at a bridge on kohala and a lawyer want teh ISI and army forbidden from trying to influence elections..however since teh case is in court any illegality could lead to teh jailing of those involved and suspending politicians who received supposedly army backed contributions...!!
  • Mar10-2012--militants attacked an army patrol in north waziristan...killing seven troops...in the resultant gunship retaliation nine militants were killed
  • Mar10-2012--nineteen killed in a drone attack in south waziristan...
  • Mar10-2012--The PPP regime moved out of its status quo mentality and finally replaced teh ISI chief after two extensions..Another Kiani protege Zaheer Ul Islam takes over after battering karachi's terrorism inclined into submission...Ijaz chaudhery teh sindh or karachi rangers chief takes over as corp commander karachi...The ISI chief finally was moved into a retirement home after a strange last year full of controversies and almost teh end of al qaeda in teh area...his questionable role will probably never be revealed...It was only after abbotabad,teh Salala bombing by teh USA killing numerous soldiers, teh memo controversy and teh failure of paksitans afghan policy and the failure of teh Pasha system of border consultations with teh USA and afghanistan that pakistans relations with teh USA were halted and teh PPP replaced its US ambassador with the controversial sherry rehman...The USA has continued to put a spanner in pakistans wheel especially in afghan relations, drone attacks, energy development and gas pipelines...Pakistanis have suffered as teh PPP regime spent four years almost asif they were dumb and unable to handle teh situation...bombings by the USA on our border, drone attacks, energy shortages, price hikes, floods bedeviled a regime, country and people that sat around doing nothing but complaining about one thing after another...It is necessary to replace the ISI chief and army chief after normal stints otherwise teh status quo is maintained and change becomes impossible...Pasha supposedly contributed to teh drone attacks and was involved in the killing of ossama ben laden while teh primeminister kept opposing drone attacks but did nothing about them..
  • Mar09-2012--Many suggest that teh PMln and PPP are trying to encourage US interference in balochistan and orders may have been given to Sherry Rehman to try and get teh baloch resolution passed in teh US congress...others suggest that teh baloch sardars may accept US as a guarantor for whatever solution they reach with teh government...Shazain Bugti apparently riding in an escort of punjab policemen and chief ministers security vehicle met teh american ambassador in an islamabad hotel...others suggest that some new form of government may have to be formed in balochistan or an agreement to teh limits of sardari rule mixed with an inefficient assembly system..Raisani suggests that his government is not interfering with the sardars but is trying to limit terrorism, sectarianism and creation of closed tribal areas...teh government has backed out from setting up cantonments in tribal areas but is not willing to cede total control to sardars over the people...tribal or otherwise...many suggest that more public/governance participation by the people and obviously teh sardars with more equality is teh only way forward..
  • Mar09-2012--In another turnaround the pakistan government is stuck with the remaining Ossama family as no other country will take them...The government therefore will charge them with illegal entry and jail them for five years...if twenty years from now somebody emerges from this family as a politician it will probably be with a convoluted surname...no Burma for these Ossama descendants...
  • Mar09-2012--Gilani who would takeoff on a foreign tour at a moments notice refuses to go to balochistan and orders the interior minister to handle teh situation...Rehman malik who would rush off to karachi even if teh mqm chief sneezed in london not effective or able to keep the ball rolling in other three provinces, Fata, kashmir and GB
  • Mar09-2012--Baber Awan who apologized in contrast to the piggish attitude of Gilani to be charged with contempt for his irreverent attitude towards the supreme judiciary...The courts have been overlooking contempt charges for some time but political leaders have started to ridicule the courts rather than discuss its decisions
  • Mar09-2012--Qaim Ali Shah orders a shutdown/strike in Waheeda Shah territory to protest teh cancellation of her electoral victory by teh EC...waheeda shah inhumanly battered two memon women working as election officials
  • Mar09-2012--The PPP regime is going for a massive electricity price hike to teh extent of Rs6 per unit..which would in effect tax teh consumers to teh extent of Rs50 billion in just a month...Domestic users seem to be teh biggest victims of teh PPP authoritarianism...With record revenues people feel that teh government is just wasting money and creating problems for the future with massive loans...
  • Mar09-2012--the baloch sardars who have been living it up are in no mood to reconcile or negotiate...they also while not being slaves themselves regard ordinary people and beaurocrats tobe petty workers...Obviously the inequality of humans in teh sardari mind and system is teh cause that causes them to not only create problems for their tribes but also for the federal government...it would thus be best to let teh balochistan government handle things rather than teh army which has failed since the seventies when teh first marri rebellion took place...others suggest that teh tribes and other communities reach an agreement first amongst themselves and than talk to the provincial government and federal government otherwise it would be best to return balochistan to a Fata like status...Akber Bugti generally worked with teh federal government with royalties from sui gas amounting to around 200 million...The ending of teh sardari system in teh bhutto era has not worked and the sardars have re emerged as controllers although the same tribe is divided amongst rebels and those who work in teh system..There has been no general effort to locate teh rebel leaders who are inclined to ethnic violence and bomb blasts...The bugti area has a had a particular long feud amongst themselves and than with the federal government..As the Bugti chiefs escaped from army assaults teh evicted kalpars were returned under army protection...however attacks on gas installations, rail tracks and ethnic murders have been the hallmarks of teh rebellion in various areas with some sectarian strife mixed in......It is generally regarded that teh US, india, afghanistan and iran have been involved in the baloch insurgency
  • Mar09-2012--The ISI fund distribution case which was opened after a long time took a new turn as Younis Habib said that teh money was provided by teh NBP and HBL from a joint account and not by teh ISI...He says he arranged around Rs340 million on the insistence of Gen Baig and Ghulam Ishaq Khan..most of teh money provided to non PPP sindhi politicians with only Nawaz Sharif, Lt gen Rafaqat and Abida hussein from the punjab...The culprits seem tobe Gen Baig and Asad Durrani since theoretically a private banker can fund political personalities...however at that time NBP and HBL were state entities...Altaf Hussein who many also regard as an ISI-MI stooge refuted teh allegations and said that teh military offers of money were refused twice..many however regard altaf hussein as teh creation of teh interior ministry at that time to dent teh PPP power base in sindh and create a king maker...however mqm power has diminished with teh emergence of teh PMlq as teh prime supporter of teh Zardari regime...The courts will have to decide whether it was ISI money or state funds and whether it was illegal for the ISI to fund politicians thru a civilian bank thru suspect origin funds...the bank which was setup with funds from various state sector entities...theoretically teh funding has come from a private bank which later collapsed...major beneficiaries of the scam seem tobe general baig, Jam Sadiq Ali, Pir Pagara and Younis Memon
  • Mar09-2012--In a major change of track teh SC called for an implementation report of teh NRO judgement on March 21...many suggest almost all the cases are being handled asif teh NRO exists ie basic non compliance...The SC also suggested that teh primeminister had upto March 21 to write teh swiss letter irrespective of the Gilani stance that it is not implementable...in effect the SC has for the third time given teh order to write the letter..If the SC does not announce the judgement on March 21 if teh primeminister does not write teh letter than many will think that the SC is just administering justice in thin air...others suggest that a whole range of people could be indicted for contempt of the SC feels that the entire NRO order is not being implemented...others suggest that the only way out is for Asif Zardari to issue a blanket pardon for all those involved in teh NRO judgement...!!!

  • Mar08-2012--Nargis Sethi a blue eyed beaurocrat says that the primeminister does almost everything but solve problems of the people..he works within and outside teh rules of bussiness..from dec 2008 to january 2011 she says he went on 30 foreign trips?...she says two summaries were received by teh primeminister which advised against following teh SC's orders on the swiss cases...Aitezaz Ahsan tried to cross question his own witness trying to create a favorable opinion about teh slow plodding anti people multani ...although she has not provided teh response of teh primeminister on teh issue...teh courts should see teh summaries and teh comments on them..one judge commented that Nargis Sethi was promoted despite being number 54 on the seniority list...she also said that he apparently bore no illwill towards judges and said that he liked living in jail...? she also apparently suggested that teh primeminister was not very well informed as he never went thru most files...the primeminister has refused to follow several court orders and teh judges have to decide whether he should be sentenced or not...since teh law secretary and law minister are not really responsible the theoretical person tobe charged is still the primeminister who bears the ultimate decision making authority...
  • Mar08-2012--In a major decision teh EC by a 3-2 margin declared waheeda shah ineligible for contesting elections for two years and cancelled her election...Bravo EC...teh two sindhis on teh EC voted against showing their regional preference...that is why we need independent men on teh EC and not those controlled by the provinces...Waheeda shah had literally thrashed two memon women teachers working as election officials...politicians should curb irresponsible behaviour...
  • Mar07-2012--Pakistan they say cant stay away from US problems and now the army and government want to handle Nato shipments thru teh railways and handled by the NLC...many suggest that instead of getting out of teh quagmire teh military and PPP want to get even more involved...the US has enough hardware in afghanistan and more wont solve anything...

  • Mar06-2012--The SC CJ says that court cannot make decisions based on possible consequences and that the primeminister is prima facie guilty of contempt...The primeminister had said the day before that there would be no caretaker setup or chairtaker setup sugesting that he might be willing to disobey teh courts orders in the contempt case too...many say that asif zardari could possibly be strong enough to bring in naek, ahsan or even raza rabbani as acting primeminister to tide over such a judgement although others suggest that elections might be announced immediately on such a judgement with a caretaker setup of their choice...all three could be acceptable to nawaz Sharif...!

  • Mar05-2012--It is the general perception that Gilani sold six punjab mpa's to teh PMLn to allow him to govern for a few more months..however things went wrong and instead of teh PMLq senate candidate losing teh PPP candidate went down teh drain...PPP has lost all its hazara leaders after it did not offer them even one senate seat...many suggest that teh senate should also have area constituencies otherwise they become meaningless political party reps...
  • Mar05-2012--The chaudhry shujaat family which has been supporting military dictatorships almost thruout its history asked by Nawaz Sharif to apologize for supporting musharaf who himself is an off shoot of teh zia ul haq military dictatorship...while the shujaat family retorts that nawaz sharif ditched them by going into exile and they had no choice but to seek teh dictators protection...PMLq just surviving by hanging on to asif zardaris coattails...as another dictatorship creation Marvi Memon joins teh PMLn

  • Mar02-2012--Ijaz Mansoor says a coup was imminent although the failed military establishment in May2011 did not seem strong enough or have any credibility left..nor did the puppet government move to replace teh erring top level military officials...however teh military inits own versions says a GHQ brigadier was trying to arrange a coup...brigadier being court martiallled...although a GHQ brigadier has little operational control...however the possibility that senior major generals who are generally incharge could mount a rebellion could be said tobe theoretically possible despite almost total ISI eavesdropping...apparently they wanted to eliminate top military commanders by bombing teh GHQ and than eliminating the stumbling political leaders...
  • Mar01-2012--In what can be said tobe an anti pakistan move...pakistani industrialists were horrified to see the PPP government allow almost wholesale indian imports...many however see the high indian prices and low quality as a sufficient disincentive...at the moment indian imports from pakistan are a tenth of pakistani imports from india...around 4000 new items can now be imported which could see indian imports triple to around 10 billion...most of pakistani exports are in direct competition to indian exports and teh only beneficial imports are usually raw materials...however importers could be looking at indian machinery and other things that could be cost effective...

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...

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...!

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

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

situation changes

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

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

an apt description

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

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

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

the empty grave

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

french revolutionaries

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

the azadi march

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

change

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

emerging from teh underground

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

the fake revolutionary

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

just Rs.600

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

from a dawn blog

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

debacle in Dacca

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

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

the chabri wala

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