political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Apr 1-15, 2012

  • Apr15-2012--retired lt. colonel files writ in SC against illegal three year extension to General Kiani...such extensions have not been given even under martial law regimes...usually only a one year extension is given...This shows that military officers now regard Kiani as part of teh problem of good governance
  • Apr15-2012--US suggesting that it will not stop drone attacks and not even apologize for killing pakistani soldiers at salala...pakistani politicians such as fazlur rehman of teh JUI have already said that a new written agreement on US ties is needed and that they have not allowed any nato suppllies and such supply lines will be blocked..others suggest that teh pakistan airforce needs to tell teh US that it can stop drones and that pakistans willingness to defend its territory should not be tested
  • Apr15-2012--asif zardari who follows a different policy in sindh on teh karachi province wants to divide punjab to satisfy teh gilanis who are involved in everything from corruption, terrorism and drugs...there is little difference between seraiki and other punjab areas and teh seraikis have had enough political influence thruout and teh development in multan is comparable to lahore...many suggest that Musa gilani who has already had a liver operation(usually caused by drug addictions) was intent upon producing drugs like ecstacy with surreptitious multan pharmaceuticals...
  • Apr15-2012--Eight hazaras shot dead in quetta by motorcycle gunmen..FC called in
  • Apr14-2012--four killed in ongoing lyari violence
  • Apr14-2012--India offers 500MW of electricity at Rs15 per unit via punjab border...pakistan probably has teh installed capacity to produce at that cost from furnace oil
  • Apr14-2012--dropped anti zardari/gilani PPP punjabi ministers like kaira, gondal and ashraf reappointed amongst 11 new miniisters...only minister considered pathetic is firdous awan who would probably be replaced
  • Apr13-2012--The attorney general was fired and irfan qadir was made teh new attorney general and yasmeen abbasi a PCO judge the secretary law...many noticed that while the national assembly was seriously studying the security implications of government policies teh government was turning the ministry of law into a group of domestic servants...

  • Apr13-2012--The PCNS revised reccomendations were adopted by parliament...they allowed non lethal nato supplies and ammunition was not allowed even thru teh airspace..the PAF was was asked to monitor border areas properly,operations inside pakistan not allowed nor any security/intelligence contractors and no foreign bases would be allowed...they pathetically asked that drone attacks be stopped...sovreignity was compromised in not insisting on a new alliance agreement with teh USA and not asking teh government to attack and retaliate any further attacks on teh country..many think that teh PAF should be told to monitor the border and intruders should be brought down...US sort of mocked teh process..noting teh seriousness..
  • Apr13-2012--The SC in a major initiative asked teh four chief secretaries to report on possible arrangements for local polls by the end of teh month...the quetta police recovered three remaining persons and teh court questioned teh attitude of teh balochistan police in not giving any reasons for the detentions of the three who were released..
  • Apr12-2012--wapda says that it is working on 20000MW of hydel projects...most are still in the plannings stage and only 32% work on teh 969 mW Neelum jhelum hydel project has been accomplished..other projects like bhasha, tarbela,bunji, dasu, munda...teh 1410MW tarbela units extension will not increase supply specifically as it will cause teh shutdown of all other units at tarbela..
  • Apr12-2012--long electricity shutdowns effect rawalpindi water supply severely as it is dependent on over 200 tubewells when teh supply from rawaldam and khanpur is substantially reduced in summer
  • Apr12-2012--The NAB chief defends his getting a controversial plot allottment so quickly...saying it is one in a lifetime allottment...many suggest that it is a bribe from teh government since as admiral he will already have been given enough plots...
  • Apr12-2012--Dawn says new ISI chief off on a europe visit with teh controversial former chief...!...teh suggestions in teh press suggest that army and PPP want an immediate opening of teh nato supply line and in fact want to provide it more protection by using teh NLC and the railways...while the JUI and PMLn seem uncertain about restarting teh failed process without major safeguards and stoppage of US military and drone attacks on pakistan...many see a distinct reduction in afghan violence with the stoppage of teh nato supplies and definitely a reduction in tensions in pakistan related to the pipeline and drone attacks...The US is definitely not very friendly and now seems to suggest that they have been working with rather than against pakistan...many say teh US attitude will swing back to its normal anti pakistan line once it gets the nato pipeline restarted...
  • Apr12-2012--four killed in dera bugti clash with FC while a strike in sindh on the chemical analysis of the death of JSQM chief...many say that it is very similar to the death of a military chief which was blamed on teh mqm...altaf hussein has been at odds with the nationalists recently as is teh PPP generally...however most of teh nationalist vote ends up with PPP candidates because of the lack of ability to contest elections
  • Apr12-2012--militants kill seven in landi kotal area for desertion
  • Apr12-2012--Farook Naek resurfaces as Law minister as Chandio is kicked out...The PPP's attempts at covering their corruption seems to be teh basis of their governance

  • Apr11-2012--dawn says sectarian natured militancy in balochistan based on balochi based LJ..however the PPP sponsored ASWJ chief Ludhianvi seems out of teh picture...while others suggest involvement of fata based punjabi taleban..many however feel that as the culprits never get caught similar to karachi the involvement of teh government is almost certain...

  • Apr11-2012--The changing pakistan army can be best studied by a list of its serving generals in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_serving_generals_of_the_Pakistan_Army ...it has 27 serving lt generals, two generals and 150 major generals...about seventy serving major generals have been superceded...showing what many feel is a curious lack of ability in the armies top order...wikipedia also says that teh army had only two lt generals in teh 1965 war one of whom was posted in turkey...In 1971 the lt generals increased to 12 four of whom were governors in teh provinces...
  • Apr10-2012--army chief appoints sacked defence secretary as FFC head thumbing his nose at the corruption oriented Gilani while Lt Gen(r) Lodhi pursues his IHC case against his sacking...

  • Apr10-2012--Dawn says that teh PPP and Bilawal want to play teh victimisation anti punjabi card which is now literally non existent...Nawaz Sharif did not have any murder cases against him and agreed to pay his loan debts...if Asif Zardari had done teh same teh courts would not have gone after the PPP government...Bilawal however should realize that there were at least three murder cases against asif zardari too and one in which benazir could theoretically be involved...so the courts have already paid their debts if any to teh zardaris...!...The hijacking case against Nawaz Sharif was not much of a case as he had only ordered the plane diverted to nawabshah and musharaf kept teh plane in teh air until the corp commander karachi decided to back him...anyway after having literally faced case after case only Gilani a punjabi is left with a contempt case and obviously Asif Zardari with his swiss case...and only a few punjabi ministers have been knocked out and those too mostly anti zardari...In teh ZAB case no cogent argument apart from teh sindhi victimisation plea...they would have to target the LHC judges with bias and teh military regime..however since teh PPP has allowed murder after murder in this government it can be debated that murder is now almost legalized...?
  • Apr10-2012--Gilani goes after teh ANF and fires another two officials to coverup for his sons ephedrine misdeeds
  • Apr10-2012--Gilani again announces a nonsensical energy policy of increased shutdowns in all provinces and saving a few hundred MW on saturdays and a few hundred by attempting to shut commercial areas at 8PM and billboard lights ...no visible attempts to increase power supply...bhasha, other hydel power stations and coal power wont be online for the next five years and bhasha could only be of help in the late summer months...there will be no additional generation by installing another tarbela turbine......filling bhasha could also take three years...hydel is just not available all the year around...attempts should be made for non hydel generation of around 5000 MW...even if all hydel stations and coal power come online in due course demand will have outstripped supply...a benazir type policy should have been put in place for necessary power generation by now...it should be ensured that all industrial units have their own power supplies in two years..and only lower income new housing should be allowed...The energy that will be saved can hardly cover load shedding supplies to even LESCO...the government should place all its resources directly at teh disposal of wapda to set up as many new power generation units as possible...if it cannot deal with circular debt than the only option is that teh government should resign and appoint a new primeminister who can...

  • Apr09-2012--The dying PPP regime maybe doing what every regime has done last ..trying to work on india...while others have eked out some sort of agreement this government which has given up on kashmir and only has meaningless trade as an issue..The indians only have on offer raags and sitar and are usually able to culturally subdue teh pakistani elite.. as usual they want the pakistanis to even provide evidence to nab hafiz saeed...The one sided indian attitude has the PPP regime subjugated and almost culturally overwhelmed...Asif Zardari also was unable to get anything from teh indians apart from dire warnings on teh hafiz saeed issue...unless there is a mutual change teh indian attitude is hardly producive to any sort of solution...many suggest that asif zardari probably offered hafiz saeed for an agreement on sir creek...teh indian natured gilani has been asking for evidence against hafiz saeed too...

In the past fours years asif zardari has visited punjab only a few times compared to his daily visits to sindh...
  • Apr07-2012--Nawaz Sharif links nato supplies to expulsion of US contractors while others want to link it to drone attacks...PMLq nwfp chief amir muqam joins PMLn...PMln has support in teh hazara area and could now win in swat- shangla

  • Apr05-2012--Dawn says that PPP will be able to maintain its support in interior sindh in the next elections even though the opposition could forcibly take away a few seats...many suggest that the zardaris have literally eliminated teh bhutto's from sindh politics and an election with ID cards could create problems for the PPP who have had no opposition in teh sindh interior since the seventies...Dawn hopes teh votes of BISP women beneficiaries will help them out...thinking however changes with affluence and the poor sindhi women are not going vote for them for a thousand rupees which buys them nothing...they probably can expect the votes of teh richer agricultural lobby that have been getting fatter on literally handouts...the PPP regime has been covering teh economic losses of agriculture sector owners and teh IPP's...given PPP policies of revering the dead zardari or gilani maybe moving towards a bigger grave than teh bhuttos given their ripping off the economy to teh tune of billions......and the PTI and even PMLn could create the cracks to end teh sindh domination by teh PPP even though it might not be in this election...however it is in other parts of teh country that teh PPP is expected to suffer...with a possible 50-60 seats changing hands the PMLn-PTI could be forming the next government with teh ethnically oriented ANP-MQM who are expected to do well with not much opposition in mohajir areas of sindh and nwfp...even though the thoughts of a PTI sweep in punjab and nwfp are not now being predicted and the PMLn seems tobe backing out of its pro demo policies as the summer heat mounts or might be Gillanis/zardaris have offered to buy nawaz sharif a hotel in england for allowing them another term to teh peril of teh awam...
  • Apr05-2012--while teh security problems what with salala, supply line attacks and drone attacks are problematic for pakistan teh USA expects us to believe that it has a security problem or concern...such concerns the US should settle in talks not with bombardments...many suggest that with teh US attitude teh relationship should be ended rather than continuing it...many suggest that the US has backed out of the threatening attitude on hafiz saeed which teh ISI many suggest is probably planning another sovreignity buster thru a suicide blast or air attack from india this time...For pakistan there is no national or even mutual interest in a politically dangerous nato pipeline and continued meaningless cooperation without an end to related violence which many say is US and pakistan army controlled...the general effect of nato aid and support payments are minimal...and what u get are might be a repaired grave in cholistan...

  • Apr04-2012--like two previous cases of corruption against teh gilani clan another suspect involvement of Musa ali gilani in allocating 9000 kilograms of ephedrine to narcotics smugglers emerges...
  • Apr04-2012--while teh PPP has formally rejected teh policies of the senior bhutto since benazir times and officially regards the party leaders deaths as sacrifices for their suspect rich mans democracy the young Bilawal Zardari portrays it as a matter of Lahore and Larkana and asks SC to move to clear the bhutto name...The court can at best cancel the death sentence since bhutto only defended his politics and not teh case...The PPP has used its time in office to get cases cancelled against its dubious leadership and showed scant disregard for the problems of teh people...both the bhutto rulers were problem solvers while teh zardari-gilani era is characterized by alliances with bhutto opponents and refusing to even recognize problems...Bilawal Zardari probably does not realize that both Wali Khan and Airmarshal Asghar Khan vowed to kill zulfikar ali bhutto...The PPP many say has only survived because of its leaders suspect deaths and will not last very long with its dubious politics and will at best be restricted to politics in interior sindh...their only chance of survival is cooperation with nawaz sharif and hoping for pukhtun and PMLq votes...The SC has not changed much trying its best to save teh current rulers whatever they do...blaming the military intelligence establishment is also an old PPP tactic
  • Apr04-2012--riots erupt in gilgit and chilas 14 killed...the area is a hotbed of sectarianism and apparently someone(possible shiite) threw a grenade at ASWJ workers organising a strike which caused the entire area of gilgit to reverberate with gunfire...five were killed while another 9 were killed when peopel(possible anti shiites) marched on teh karakorum highway and attacked a convoy of buses and killed nine
  • Apr04-2012--In what is being termed a major counter attack teh US issues a 10 million dollar bounty for Mullah hafiz saeed...Hafiz saeed has been prominent in opposing the nato pipeline and teh US thinks some pakistani will go for the money...it also proves beyond doubt that the US has always been an indian in teh region following and helping india and dumping pakistan whenever it gets teh chance...there has been no evidence of hafiz saeed being involved in the bombay attacks apart from his possible leadership of the LET...he says he only led the jamat dawaa which supposedly is a charity organisation...since the bounty is for the location of hafiz saeed who is free in pakistan the objectives of USA are clearly murky and anti islamic...the USA has yet to reveal who gave them teh location of Ossama ie if it was not teh pakistan government and its ISI...maybe Asif Zardari wants a helicopter attack from india this time..?
  • Apr03-2012--Another checkpoint attacked from afghanistan killing five security men and eight militants...many believe that teh US is preparing to attack across teh tribal frontier as more US troops pour into afghanistan...others suggest that the US is going to attack iran...TTP says only one militant died in teh attack...
  • Apr03-2012--six die in ongoing lyari violence which has street people fighting teh police...many say the PPP regimes inability to handle the mqm and their ethnic pecaddillos only cause of teh problem...the mqm has constantly attacked other ethnic groups and now has the PPP regime attacking any pockets of anti mqm areas
  • Apr03-2012--Gilani says PPP government unable to solve problems whether they are electricity, nato pipelines or gas pipelines...just waiting he says for teh national assembly to back down to restart the nato pipeline which is obviously making teh stoppage of the pipeline a meaningless action...The government many say is at best stumbling thru frightened of the SC and teh PMLn...The SC recently confiscated 12 rental power projects and initiated cases against teh power mafia headed by teh MOWP...The government has been unable to solve any issue in teh power sector since teh early eighties when teh military rulers could not build teh kalabagh dam and than dismantled wapda and initiated teh IPP's and than Rpp's...circular debt and unavailable power just kept increasing teh problems of load shedding and the bumbling government just kept lying to the people...The IPP agreements with their assured gas and fuel supplies and capacity agreements and high rates only kept the problem from being solved...The only way left is to declare force majeure...cancel all power agreements and take over all power companies and put them under a single company...eversince lieutenant generals and MOWP have been running things it has been going from bad to worse...the problem is compounded by using stored water to meaninglessly prop up sindh's agriculture...

  • Apr02-2012--violence continues in karachi and lyari
  • Apr02-2012--CJ heads to quetta to hear civil rights petitions while the ISI cowardly asks for an in camera briefing for teh SC...The judges and ISI should realize that sweeping things under teh carpet serves no purpose and teh people especially of balochistan need to know teh truth...if there is a reason for the ISI actions than the people knowing it should not matter...keeping things secret only perpetuates the reasoning that subterfuge is not with an ulterior motive and thus not logical or correct...FC chief says there were 331 violent incidents this year in which over a hundred were killed...
  • Apr01-2012--the poor were again threatened by the PPP's terrible allies the MQM and ANP with their terrible games of murder and ethnic deprivation and strikes in karachi and the PPP with another irresponsible petroleum price and CNG hike...The mqm apparently ordered teh killing of a pukhtun bus driver after four motorcyclists were killed...motorcyclists are much more likely tobe mohajirs while rickshaw drivers and bus drivers mostly pukhtun...the meaningless ethnic vendetta's in karachi are controlled by altaf hussein while the ANP also does not hold back...many suggest that ethnic desperado type organisations should be banned like teh religious extremists..others suggest that teh sindh governor be replaced by someone who can solve issues and control events...there was a lacklustre strike in lahore against the PPP regimes uncontrolled load shedding
  • Apr01-2012--The Gilani's who many regard as corrupt with the whole family involved in dubious corruption oriented ventures has now started a vendetta against the former Nusrat Bhutto lawyer Baber Awan...first he was removed as minister, suspended by teh SC as a lawyer... than his handpicked nominees were fired from several positions in the MOL and CDA..he has now been fired from the parliamentary committee on national security and replaced by Qamar Zaman Kaira...Baber Awan refused to testify for teh primeminister in his defence against a contempt case in teh SC...
  • Apr01-2012--The PCNS is unable to decide on opening teh nato supply line as without a change in american attitudes it will just restart the unending process of drone attacks and counter attacks on nato trucks...

the earthquake jolts in punjab were severe but the damge was mostly in the KP hilly areas...a water tank was shifted from its moorings in peshawar but did not fall...

the monument

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

the army image..

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

the contest is not so straight

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

nawaz sharif's inability

nawaz sharif's inability
what pakistan has inits future...in two years loadshedding has not changed an iota...so what is in the works that will end load shedding...coal power plants and nuclear plants have not even gotten off the ground...cheap petroleum products has not solved it...even if neelum jhelum is completed will it make a difference...hardly ...!

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...!

power crisis

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

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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...
