the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Mar 16--31, 2012

  • Mar31-2012--punjab school budget up to Rs152 billion of which 4 billion being spent on computers for the top students...almost 16000 per student being spent on danish schools while government sector schools get Rs1600 per student
  • Mar31-2012--six youngsters riding motorbikes shot dead by other motorcycle riders in karachis site area
  • Mar31-2012--The SC in a landmark judgement against dubious government decision making scraps teh rental power projects and asks NAB to initiate corruption enquiries against three ministers of water and power, a secretary of teh deptt and heads of involved power sector companies...they are accused of bad decision making, corruption and doubling downpayments to dubious RPP contractors who attempted to run rings round teh deptts and brought in old equipment and could not install them within the required time limits...SC said teh contracts lacked transparency and very high rates were agreed upon which made one ship based system unusable...most of the ministers of water and power were thought tobe corrupt...
  • Mar31-2012--US drone attack kills four in miranshah
  • Mar31-2012--military and politicians seem poles apart on american relations...with opposition politicians casting aspersions on teh military for meeting american generals before a decision..The US says it needs the nato pipeline but is not willing to even be friends with us...The US has a clear animosity towards pakistan and the government must make certain that pakistan is not attacked again verbally or physically...The military says that they have been following government orders in not retaliating against US attacks and drones...the americans must also make do with or accept just our apologies if that is all pakistan is going to get for destroying pakistani sovreignity and ridiculing our military and governance...retaliations against pakistan are unacceptable whether they are military or political...parliament and government must decide that if teh US attacks us again teh military must automatically retaliate and teh same goes for drones...The same message must be given to teh afghans...The rest is a matter of polemics...the nato pipeline should not be necessary if teh US is going to withdraw in 2014...pakistan should only allow foodstuff...obviously doing that via trains is not going to solve problems as teh goods from trains will have to shift to trucks before crossing over teh border...other aspects such as the useless US aid and payments must be direct and there must be no ifs and buts from teh US side on that...The US does not create as many problems for other countries that it does for pakistan although it has a definite anti muslim policy as demonstrated in teh middle east, africa and afghanistan...however one can already see some US thoughts on teh ground and they could easily start realistic cross border attacks from afghanistan as its presence in afghanistan is not alqaeda oriented any more...there are enough anti pakistan sentiments in pakistans border areas and karachi and the US would easily be able to find willing recruits to fight the pakistani forces in a land offensive or a pakistani spring operation...the taleban too are at best US trained and would easily join any anti pakistan movement..therefore negotiators must not look for just a miserly flow of dollars but make it clear that US animosity is unacceptable whatever form it takes...
  • Mar30-2012--Sc refuses to allow ANF to withdraw a case in teh musa Gilani ephedrine scam and asks it to submit its investigation reports ...Musa Gilani in connivance with the MOH and two multan based pharma companies is atetmpting to create an ecstacy empire...!
  • Mar30-2012--eight die in quetta in sectarian attacks while two UN officials killed in mastung
  • Mar30-2012--In what is being seen as this governments refusal to make correct decisions itself the military, government, beaurocracy national assembly members met to discuss teh parliamentary reccomendations on Us relations...The PPP many say is only in power to get rid of teh cases against it and has no mandate/intellect or interest in running teh country properly
  • Mar29-2012--ASWJ head maulana Ludhianwi who is the head of the organisation that was earlier called teh SSP arrested and released by islamabad police
  • Mar29-2012--Ossama's wodows say Ossama moved to pakistan in 2002 and they lived in peshawar,swat, haripur and abbottabad
  • Mar29-2012--The cowardly pakistanis who have hidden behind US attacks and drone attacks now say they are willing to bomb their own citizens in Fata...while Brigadier facing court nartial says he was charged after he said army should accept responsibility for abbottabad failure and replace teh failed army leadership
  • Mar28-2012--LESCO office in lahore set on fire as shabaz sharif whose interests are clearly those of an industrialist rather than teh people says asif Zardari pushing punjab towards teh stone age...Shabaz sharif has been wasting public money on publicity politics rather than doing anything to solve teh energy crisis ...many feel that electricity generation and distribution should be provincialized since teh federation is unable to handle it appropriately...shahbaz sharif however is less volatile than nawaz sharif and is unable to bring teh people onto teh street...in a real anti government movement...
  • Mar28-2012--militant mqm workers killed 10 probably pukhtun workers and burned 40 vehicles and torched a roadside restaurant with firing echoing thru out karachi as bussinesses, transport and schools shut down...This after two mqm workers had been shot dead in teh early morning...mqm gunmen on motorcycles than unleashed a wave of terror killing ethnic opponents and setting their vehicles on fire...asif zardari many say escaped to london instead of returning home from central asia...this after tensions in karachi as a supposedly mqm backed terror group emerged...The PPP many say has been unable to solve most of teh countries problems and might have wanted to distract attention from the problems that they have created...
  • Mar28-2012--Gilani comes up against a reluctant Obama who wants to continue teh needless bombings in Fata..only on offer was a dubious respect for sovreignity which is peppered with CIA, drone and US military attacks...The US has a clear lack of interest in pakistans views and teh problems that they create for us thru misguided approaches to development and security...eg. two anti pakistani US congressmen repeated their threats against balochistan and our power problems were met with attempts to repair a faulty tarbela power station generator which is usually idle most of teh year...
  • Mar27-2012--Power riots in punjab cities as PPP and musharaf era's both seen as failures in solving teh issue...with load shedding at its peak the power bills were almost doubled with additions of spurious surcharges which many maintain are being added to increase revenue collections...As the issue spiked teh national assembly proceedings teh PPP regime admitted its failure in handling teh power crisis and agreed that only normal bills would be collected...
  • Mar26-2012--six militants killed in kurram operations as JUI-f's maulana fazlur rehman threatens to block Nato supply routes
  • Mar26-2012--The mohajir liberation army has sent threatening letters to two sindhi mpa's to leave karachi...one PPP mpa minister who supposedly is a hari owns over 300 acres...of land...?..many feel sindh should show its loyalty to pakistan rather than worry about karachi's provincialisation...

  • Mar25-2012--with teh PPP only looking for a US apology for teh premeditated killing of pakistani soldiers and no change visible in teh anti pakistan US attitude teh parliamentary debate is headed for failure as teh PPP is expected to push thru its own agenda with teh JUI-f willing to attack Nato trailers and the taleban to attack parliamentarians...!
  • Mar25-2012--The countries VIP's mostly army and government offices use up 2000MW as only 5000MW is left for the ordinary people causing load shedding of unimaginable proportions...The PPP regime is at best horrible in its handling of teh countries gas and elctricity problems..PMLn thinking of coming out on to the streets...
  • Mar24-2012--railway track blownup near larkana as parts of Thar strike against removal of their mpa from teh assembly

  • Mar24-2012--Three FC men killed in taleban attack near mir ali
  • Mar23-2012--former chief minister Dr. Arbab Rahim who lives in dubai kicked out of teh sindh assembly by the PPP for not attending the sessions for 40 days
  • Mar23-2012--maybe Aitezaz Ahsan should read the report on HR violations during the last year to understand teh case...In 2011 there were 80000 in jail under trial..ninety of whom died and 313 were sentenced to death...16 journalists killed across teh country and four top politicians...943 women were killed...83 of them minors...701 women committed suicide and another 428 attempted suicide..4500 reported cases of domestic violence..infant mortality rate was 63.3 and under five mortality 89..the economic scenario was depicted by an increase in chronic malnutrition due to high food prices...schools in Fata mostly remained closed and 33% children had no access to education...in sindh/ balochistan rural areas only 16%/8% women completed primary education...
  • Mar23-2012--CJ appoints Justice Shakirullah Jan an active SC judge as teh acting CEC
  • Mar23-2012--Aitezaz Ahsan seems tobe trying to fool the judges...saying article 10A makes a fair trial a fundamental right while the judges said that since they were not the plaintiffs personally his suggestion that Gilani would not get a fair trail is insulting in a way or contemptuous...The issue has been established and only some circumstances are unclear...the explanations asto why do not seem tobe relevant and aitezaz saying that he would obstruct teh court by going on and on would suggest that he has no case to present....The judges also suggested that all constitutional articles are basically standalone...and the issue is contempt not a fair trial as teh judges have given adequate advice as well as time to teh defendant...Aitezaz seems unaware of how to deal with a case of contempt...It is not teh court that is the plaintiff as otherwise all contempt cases would have tobe heard in switzerland too... the NRO decision was not made by this bench anyway...Aitezaz seemingly has already presented all his arguments...there is the option that teh SC hear the case instead of teh swiss and the swiss just provide the data ...the accounts...sums of money and who paid who...!!
  • Mar22-2012--The punjab university to spend Rs.30 million on a shahbaz sharif jalsa to distribute 30 laptops of teh 14450(approx cost 578 million) being given to punjab university students...6000 students could be given a Rs.5000 scholarship for 30 million...many suggest that the vice chancellor maybe corrupt given teh extremely high charges eg. Rs15 million just for tentage...?Shabaz sharif probably thinks if the university can bring 20000 students to his jalsa he would be considered popular amongst the youth...?
  • Mar22-2012--two policemen killed in quetta by the BLA
  • Mar22-2012--The contempt case takes an interesting turn as aitezaz ahsan has no longer any confidence in the bench as all his arguments are being blown away by Gilani...teh secretary law that Gilani said he had to follow initially was fired...an awan nominee he was replaced by a zardari nominee Irfan Qadir who had also earlier refused to obey teh courts orders to leave office as NAB prosecutor...after teh court said that he did not have to follow the law secretary's advice...Gilani took teh position that zardari had criminal immunity..than he said that he could not write teh letter as it was treason...than that it would be better to go to jail than be hanged...than that he was not afraid...than he offered to resign...than he said that it is not easy to resign...than he said that teh court should refer the matter to parliament...teh court asked aitezaz ahsan if he accepted that Gilani was a delinquent or whether he wanted to plead guilty...the latest position taken by Gilani is that asif zardari should approach teh court and ask for immunity against swiss prosecution...since the law is quite clear there is no reason to send teh issue to parliament...the best way out is for Gilani to plead guilty due to circumstances and throw himself at teh mercy of teh court...they should also suggest to teh court that the swiss letter could be written after Asif zardari leaves office...it would really be interesting how teh court can avoid passing a six month sentence for contempt...as it would require the PPP to appoint another punjabi primeminister...teh frontrunner could possibly be teh defence minister followed by aitezaz ahsan although many suggest that raza rabbani could be a wiser choice...Gilani seems to have an inability to deal with problems as well as country issues especially those that are related to teh people...
  • Mar21-2012--electricity protests in several second tier punjab cities
  • Mar21-2012--illegal detention of Ossama widows also challenged in teh IHC...!
  • Mar21-2012--two policeman killed in a rickshaw blast in peshawar
  • Mar21-2012--Gilani, Aitezaz Ahsan and Sethi try to hang Baber Awan instead of Gilani in teh contempt case..Awan and teh law secreatary refuse to testify which suggests that there were no summaries from teh law ministry...
  • Mar21-2012--Another Raza Rabbani fait accompli...presents a PPP version of the musharaf accord to support the USA whatever teh cost...PMLn says they did not agree and ask for the agreements with teh USA and Britain tobe published...
  • Mar21-2012--The inefficient PPP regime is just interested in the famous zulfikar ali bhutto comment before he got toppled ..."ye kursi bahut mazboot he..."as they just sit and watch as teh country goes down the drain...another inexplicable electricity price hike of over 16 to 48 % for the months of October to January...Nepra just accepts whatever the Discos dish out who have a standard form in which they fill out unexplainable information...for example in one month there is 36% cheap hydel generation...still a price hike...government now charging teh people for setting up teh private sector which explains the Rs9 per unit wind power...windfall riches for IPPP's and problems for teh people seems tobe the only PPP policy...
  • Mar21-2012--The parliamentary committee on national security came out as extremely soft on national security and expressed views similar to those of teh Gilani regime...They seem very soft on drone attacks, border and cross border attacks...also seem to give in to the concept of US security contractors, CIA agents and nato supply line...they just want taxes imposed on nato goods...parliamentary approval for usage of airspace and showed disapproval of personal verbal agreements and use of pakistani bases...otherwise they seem to leave the space open for teh subjugative negative musharaf era type agreements...Gilani who just opposed US drone attacks verbally is probably behind teh entire draft...many suggest that pakistan should clearly state that they will retaliate for drone attacks and cross border violations and the nato supply line should be used sparingly and things like RDX should not be allowed thru...if Nato needs any supplies than they should purchase them from pakistan...truckloads of suspicious cargoes should not be allowed thru without proper checking...The US has demonstrated a deep antagonism, negativity and animosity towards pakistan on each and every issue and at every level from Obama down to teh congress and theoretically no meaningful relationship with teh USA can last with the prevalence of such attitudes...If the US wants tobe an ally than they should not attack pakistan physically or verbally...The attitude of teh US military and congress should also change and they should show respect and friendliness rather than turn pakistan into a meaningless punching bag for their israeli and overseas military conquest mentalities and mean natures...Many suggest that teh committee did not deliberate on the real issues and have left almost everything for teh government to decide...The nature of teh relationship is money based and teh US after agreeing to pay its way starts behaving like a poor miserly country...many suggest that relationship should have an overall financial tone tobe beneficial in some aspects at least...like give us $4 billion a year at teh beginning of every year so that we can smoothe the way rather than the ifs and buts type of relationship especially in teh financial domain and the military and intelligence domains...it hardly matters to pakistan what sort of relationship they develop with teh taleban eventually...while many think that there should be only one point of contact with teh US so that each aspect of the relationship remains above board and has a similar context...given the US nature pakistan should just work on a relationship for the next two years as after that the US will thumb their noses at us again...
  • Mar20-2012--The Kiyani-Pasha era of almost defacto ISI control over teh military and foreign policy comes to an end as Lt. Gen Zahirul Islam takes over teh ISI...It also comes at a time when US military involvement in teh area is creating more problems than solutions and pakistan needs to stand on its own feet and be willing to shoot down drones and american cross border invasions whatever their reasons...The retiring airforce chief said that Gilani is a coward and did not give the orders for drones tobe shot down...and that orders in teh light of teh countries situation should be clearly given so that the armed forces can act in defence of teh country...The airforce and army were seen as literally dumb bystanders as the US attacked thru drones and cross border helicopter attacks...leaving teh PPP regime and army looking like subjugated slaves to american policies ie before General Kayani had a falling out with the US armed forces chief and teh US attack wiping out two army posts on teh afhgan border forced the slavish PPP to rethink and stop the destabilizing drone attacks and the US-Nato supply line...with the PPP almost US controlled teh decision was left to parliament which has had little or no input to anti people government policies...many suggest that with teh tide turning against the US... Gilani and Zardari had no choice but to say we cant do anything and its up to the parliament...

  • Mar20-2012--The Gilani agenda seems tobe no letter to the swiss and no electricity as load shedding reached a peak of over 65%... rawalpindi witnessed load shedding of a six hour duration...as Nepra chief quits after literally doubling electricity prices but with no resolution to power outages...many suggest that the SC is treating Gilani lightly by just considering it contempt as following teh orders of teh SC is also a constitutional obligation and Gilani according to his own views should be tried for treason
  • Mar20-2012--In a joint sitting of parliament which is now heavily controlled by teh PPP and its allies teh issue of ties with teh US military tobe discussed...many believe that teh PPP and teh army will cave in to US desires and pakistan will again go back to a period of instability of drone attacks and counter attacks on US convoys...despite renewed militant activity in Fata there has been some respite from afghanistan related troubles after a year of US invasions and incessant drone attacks...The pakistani taleban though limited in their strike range have continued to bomb and kill showing teh limited efficacy of teh pakistan army and drone attacks
  • Mar19-2012--soldiers attack mirali area in north waziristan after two convoys are attacked...soldier, five militants killed

  • Mar17-2012--Gilani continued with his meaningless politics..now suggesting that his hands and face have been blackened by his dirty anti people politics...suggesting inter alia that he is being threatened but is not afraid with a huge security apparatus protecting him in islamabad...
  • Mar17-2012--Ijaz Mansoor revealed that Haqqani was Asif Zardaris national security advisor hidden undercover in teh USA...zahid bokhari continued his stunts but teh commission was not impressed...
  • Mar17-2012--Farhatullah Baber says MQM little more than a Zardari fan club...as mohajirs have no real problems and karachi is more developed than any other part of teh country..when they voice protests against bhatta it just means that teh interior ministry has forgotten to send altaf hussein a lafafa...no wonder when altaf hussein turned turtle teh next day and said karachi traders would have to deal with extortionists on their own...
  • Mar17-2012--ISI lawyer says that venomous allegations were being levelled against teh ISI these days..SC chief justice says they are not just allegations as he asks for teh production of Omar Mahmood Wali picked up from rawal road on friday...he was serving food to the protestors in islamabad...

the monument

The army as everyone knows has more money to spend and is quick to serve its own interests...the APS monument in Rawalpindi's Ayub Park is incongruous and does not seem to serve the remembrance of one of the worst terrorist incidents in the countries history

the army image..

the army image..
the armies image...songs, drama's and films by teh ISPR... remembering December 16, 1971 and the current sindhi viewpoint of the Rangers... who have been a cause of the decline in politically motivated disturbances in karachi which the provincial government had been unable to handle for over a decade...

the contest is not so straight

the contest is not so straight
the contest between the military and the terrorists is not so straight...both like different aspects...the army likes the martyr effect...trying to buildup a courageous image of the at best innocent victims while the terrorist likes the immediate effect the terror, fright and destruction...obviously in the end one side has to win and the phsycological warfare reaches its climax with the action and later reactions...

military corruption

military corruption
the yellow sportscar of military corruption...dont mistake the car for a military boot......while military corruption at the grassroots maybe impossible to visualize the top controlled army has revealed a list of senior generals involved in corruption...two karachi and lahore corp commanders and two former baloch FC chiefs...the yellow sportscar is a symbol how the army has misconstrued corruption, honesty and bravado mixed with dictatorial super powers of senior officers who are rarely challenged..many joke that if the yellow sportscar had been delivered to its rightful owner the army chief than who would ever have been able to question an FC chief...!how the military extorts or usurps land for its purposes is nade clear by the shenanigans of hammad arshad and two kayani brigadiers...

a new coas

a new coas
with raheel shareef breathing down his neck will there be a new coas...!or will raheel shareef be able to frighten nawaz sharif into retaining him...the frontrunner is regarded as Lt.Gen Ramday number three in the picture...but the other three are equally competent with the no nonsense Lt Gen Ishfaq Nadeem equally considered ...but many say his brusque bluntness may have frightened Nawaz Sharif...the other two Hayat and Bajwa are also just as trustworthy...with hayat having almost two serving Lt.General siblings and a father who was a major general...uptill now it was Nawaz Sharif's decision but now many think Raheel Shareef might want to keep the job...!

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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
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...
