muzzling the courts...!

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

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases

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

the chakri crook

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

gaye bhans politics

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

end of nawaz sharif

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

political cricket

political cricket
political cricket...imran khan himself maybe in trouble soon however at teh moment the travails of the sharifs seem to have no end

banigala

banigala
than and now---there were really no trees in banigala...on teh outskirts of rawalpindi and islamabad it was an agricultural area...now however they maybe polluting rawal dam where dead fish have been found this year...

banigala house

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

The SC and article 62...

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

political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

raheel shareef

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics May01-15, 2012


  • May15-2012--another four killed in karachi violence while twenty die in khyber conflict
  • May15-2012--two policemen gunned down at Babu Sabu interchange in lahore by car travelling terrorists
  • May15-2012--The FC which has a relatively cleaner reputation in other provinces has been unable to clear itself of kidnapping and dumping body charges in quetta...many say they are tasked with fighting the various liberation armies in balochistan no questions asked...The FC chief denied teh allegations in teh SC and said that other organnisations whether state or rebel forces were using their identities...the FC should be asked about their responsibilities in balochistan as with a negligible police force they become a frontline crime and terrorism handling organisation and whether they torture and kill like teh liberation armies is something that must be cleared up and teh SC should study and modify their modes of operation...
  • May15-2012--The docility of this regime has become legend...please dont fire drones at us has been teh Gilani position...nothing more...now after having taken some stance on a border post being wiped out they are again willing tobe docile american duped slaves...teh sudden change in attitude is not understandable as teh americans have shown no remorse for killing 24 pakistani soldiers just for the fun of it...the nato pipeline has shown that pakistan really cant turn itself into a crossroads for countries that are dubious natured, unfriendly and killers of pakistanis...
  • May15-2012--a parked car blew up in quetta hitting an FC convoy...killing 2 FC men amongst four
  • May14-2012--The creation of new provinces will be detrimental to sindh as theoretically teh present punjab will than have 60 seats in teh senate... sindh will become teh lowest riparian and not have teh same rights on water as before...with a new distribution of the NFC and water rights sindh could be teh province being described by many as a loser...north punjab, seraikistan, bahawalpur and sindh would have similar rights and could demand equal share in waters which would deprive both sindh and central punjab which at present use up most of teh water...the traditional sindh position on water would no longer apply...however sindh would become an equal to the two punjabi provinces in matters of political power although nobody would accept sindhs right to so many positions in teh political setup...with smaller provinces sindh is expected to lose more NFC funds as well...as funds given up by punjab would revert to the three provinces and seraikistan would be considered more underdeveloped than sindh and even nwfp...many also suggest that sindh could be squeezed or forced to lose a lot of political clout also that they now enjoy because of their opposition to teh rights of punjab as teh largest province...many also suggest that a seraiki extremist like Gilani would no longer be considered acceptable as primeminister given his increasingly corrupt and regional reputation...many others suggest that sindhs refusal to allow a karachi province could be detrimental to its political clout while teh sindhi nationalists realizing the dangers say that teh pakistan resolution clearly defined teh states and teh federation power blocks cannot be changed...bahawalpur too was not a province but a nawabi state like hunza, dir, chitral and kalat and is not recognized in the pakistan resolution...teh complications are many and the governments attempt to suggest that sindh will not suffer but gain strength seems tobe a misguided PPP attempt to gain a power foothold in another province other than sindh...The PPP's policies have slowly made them a pariah in other provinces...many others suggest that a new constitution would be the only answer with senate seats based on size or population and a greater division of political power to include teh new provinces...the smaller provinces in pakistan are prone to ethnic and seperatist struggles and the new provinces could easily degenerate into different versions of fata, karachi and balochistan...
  • May14-2012--sunni maulvi and two labourers shot dead in karachi...peshawar police checpost blownup...pro govt clearic shot dead in lakki marwat...clashes leave four dead in Tirah..convoy attacked in waziristan
  • May14-2012--IJT central leader shot dead in lahore
  • May14-2012--KRL research facility near kahuta burns to teh ground says the Dawn by lightning...?
  • May14-2012--General Kiani is again being lured in by teh dubious natured american generals...nato and teh USA should understand that no attacks on our border posts by the US, nato or their kabuli proxies will be acceptable in teh future...
  • May13-2012--The Sindh PPP which regards itself as the only one able to defend teh pathetic Asif Zardari regime fails to understand teh problems that teh public have to face because of teh PPP's pathetic do nothing policies of save zardari from the swiss courts...holding a rally which many say was boosted by military soldiers on teh punjab sindh border teh sindhi maniac qaim ali shah said tobe behind teh karachi killings and mayhem threatens to march on lahore when even the president is afraid to go to lahore...!
  • May13-2012--The PPP which has been unable to improve teh power sector situation backs out of privatising Genco operations as power sector employees threaten to strike...The PPP has been at odds with the IPP's as well reducing their outputs and has been responsible for an almost tripling of load shedding in teh cities...The only PPP policy has been to increase tariffs to an astronomical extent with domestic consumers paying as the highest tariff of Rs.15 per unit...
  • May13-2012--General Kiani holds talks with the killer of the Salala soldiers General Allen...nato supply line only problem as paksitan is now seen has having little or no influenec in teh afghan game...Us worried about how to pull out its equipment and trying to make pakistan attend nato meeting
  • May12-2012--four killed by mortar in khyber agency
  • May13-2012--Pmln forges an election agreement with teh PMLq like minded who have stayed away from the PPP...PMLn now fears that a PMLq-PPP coalition could make them lose many seats...while the PPP is expected to lose substantial support in teh punjab the PMLq has maintained its second or third place support...The PPP literally running on mere politics in teh punjab is expected to do badly in teh punjab and could many say hide behind teh PMLq to keep their seats...
  • May12-2012--police inspector shot dead in quetta
  • May12-2012--FC chief and IG balochistan again fail to appear before teh SC
  • May12-2012--Gilani apparently did not like how zafar abbas lak handled the ephedrine affair...so he was made the PPP regimes seventh FIA chief...while Javed Iqbal was made the secretary, ministry of narcotics control which runs teh ANF...
  • May11-2012--The PCB came up with some strange reasons for making mohammed hafeez a captain and vice captain...with misbah refusing to look old at 38...supposedly he is a better 20-20 captain...while misbah has not played some of teh better sides in teh world he has been proved an adequate captain but seems to get stranded in some top level matches especially against india...hafeez has a barely adequate record and should not even many say be opening in teh presence of khalid latif, shehbaz ahmed and nasir jamshed...however to top that teh PCB brought in mohd ayub, ayub dogar and imran farhat the traditional multani sifarishi...other new faces seem tobe afaq raheem,mohd ayub,rahat ali, haris sohail and shakeel ansar the 2020 wicketkeeper from sialkot...we now have different wicketkeepers in all three formats showing the obvious lack of talent...with adnan being a sifarishi as his batting is not that good......it seems that the selection committee has a better karachi representaion with so many former karachi players being reselected......the seraiki primeminister probably pushes for at least two seraikis...ayub dogar seems tobe teh oldest new player in tests...others coming back are mohammed sami, faisal iqbal, yasir arafat and raza hasan...mohammed hafeez, saeed ajmal,mohammed sami and umar gul only make it in all three formats...with probably mohd hafeez being tipped as the next captain so that it does not worry other players or former captains...
  • May11-2012--with some of teh worst load shedding teh country has ever witnessed the PMLn might end up having more bhuttos than teh PPP as mumtaz bhuttos SNF merges into teh PMLn...with liaqat jatoi also in their support group...with teh mahar's and possibly pagara groups teh PMln migh possibly have a shot at forming the next government in sindh with teh PPP generally out of favour...
  • May11-2012--power riots broke out in vehari with what seemed tobe PPP orchestration as they attacked PMLn offices...That teh PPP regime was responsible for the load shedding and its severity was also made clear by teh PPP as it said that things would be better from tommorrow...
  • May11-2012--The USA is treating pakistan like a pariah that must obey their orders and accept verbal and military attacks and that everything that happens in teh region is pakistans responsibility and not that of the regions real troublemakers USA, india and afghanistan...seems tobe the advice that teh indians gave to teh USA...india and the USA have been pushing pakistan into a subjugated corner so that pakistan cannot even raise serious issues like water and US attacks onits sovreignity and soldiers while teh indians keep them embroiled in terrorism accusations and teh USA in the afghan taleban imbroglio...pakistan generally seems tobe a cooperative and subjugated state willing todo anything for money apart from being beatenup that also without cause...however teh USA and india both blame them for their failures in kashmir and afghanistan and despite bombing fata into teh smithereens the USA has been unable to control afghanistan or make them as docile as teh pakistanis... and many suggest that since teh USA functions under teh doctrine of retaliation pakistan too should first reach an agreement on that with their many say worst enemy in the world that is apart from india...if pakistan had just retaliated immediately for attacks on its sovreignity and downed any drones that intruded into its borders methinks the message would have been understood better by teh indians and teh USA...pakistan whose government seems tobe madeup of various types of US and indian stooges has been brought down easily by the USA's own actions rather than any action on its own part...well it must be said "we told u so"...that teh US could not stay on teh same side for very long and now wants pakistan to do what they are here todo...obviously pakistan cannot stop taleban or afghans from putting together IED's...if that had been so easy the US would have bombed them in afghanistan or droned them in pakistan...it is teh afghans that have a long history of devizing fire making devices...and maybe teh US even taught them how to make bombs as they taught teh libyans...they supposedly were training us and now they want us to protect them teh worlds only long distant army and who supposedly know everything and teh pakistanis have tobe taught how to handle terrorists, insurgency and train even security guards...maybe the US state deptt should tell their congressmen who really started it all...now the US has started parliamentary processes to stop pakistan's aid and support payments and even insurgency training aid..they wont go thru with it so dont collapse...if they donot get visa's for their insurgents into pakistan...they will stop aid and military trade...usual tactics not for a superpower but a small vindictive state...pakistan should many say...walk away...although according to teh scenario they want to send the poorly educated Asif zardari to say sorry...u can kill us, shoot us, behave whichever way u bloody please but please donot stop our aid... u know how difficult teh taleban are...they are not going to stop making IEDs...but if u attack us again we too will retaliate...so either become a friend and treat us like an ally or it is good bye...u know what zardari will really say ...mai baap.. please donot stop aid...i will start nato pipeline...taleban and al qaeda we cant control...drones we donot want...if u retaliate my fauj also want todo so...u know u said u cant live without pakistan...only solution "u leave afghanistan every thing will end..."pakistan's government has wanted to fall for the US lines again but there is no need left for their mazaar building aid and/or military and economic aid...teh US attitude is at best unhelpful...maybe teh US should first decide whether they want to be here or it is pakistan that can do it better than them...we would have already tried out several karzai's and several systems by now...
  • May10-2012--many say that if the national assembly speaker acts in accordance with teh constitution she has to refer the disqualification of Gilani to the EC..her rejecting the issue could cause another lawsuit for teh SC to clarify whether contempt causes disqualification...the cause "contempt of teh judiciary" which Gilani and many PPP legislators and even governor have been found guilty off...a decision of teh court can be discussed but not condemned...the EC will have to decide the issue either/or with a public hearing or it could again ask the SC to decide teh issue...basically an mna is disqualified if found ridiculing teh judiciary and contempt is teh worst case scenario...The PPP many say has no grounds or reasons for appeal and would only doit for time delaying tactics...which could keep Gilani in office for over a 100 days...The PPP has generally lost teh case in the public domain and dragging along Gilani would be counterproductive if they want another term as they will be seen tobe refusing to accept another court judgement...under the present system teh PPP is just trying to stay in office and not do anything...many now say 'democracy alone is not enough"...with possibility of Fehmida Mirza being made a consensus standin primeminister till the elections which should be favorable for the PPP in August-October when electricity will be completely available...the PPP should make teh decision to kick Gilani out and go for elections immediately...
  • May10-2012--In what can be said tobe political subterfuge teh PMLn resolution in the punjab assembly for bahawalpur and seraiki provinces was passed with teh PPP obviously losing face...with a two third majority in parliament teh PPP has not yet initiated a constitutional amendment for seraikistan and teh PMLn have pegged them back with suggestions of a bahawalpur province..the issue is also already in court and teh pakistan resolution would be finished if new provinces were created...teh issues that will be raised again of redistributing finances and cutting sindhs water power will be difficult to resolve...seraiki areas are not up in arms for a seperate province and teh PPP and PMLn have been forced into it as they are afraid to actually create new provinces where they are needed that is karachi and hazara...The PMLn has notlost in seraiki areas because of teh opposition to seraikistan since they have been supporting south punjab rather than the ethnic seraikistan...PMLn has to realize as does the PPP that big names wont get them seats anymore given teh reality of the PTI support in south punjab and teh PMLq factor...the PPP's new seraiki Gilani was also initially opposed to seraikistan as multanis donot see it as very favorable because they will be done in by their less developed areas..others also suggest that south punjab has always had more political power than north punjab and bahawalpur and multan maybe better developed than say rawalpindi and faisalabad...in effect there has been no visible discrimination...therefore teh new provinces issue does not raise much support in teh punjabi minds...
  • May10-2012--the issues that teh US has been unable to resolve in afghanistan despite the afghan invasion and drone bombardments and attacking pakistani border positions it is putting in a new resolution in congress aimed at frightening pakistan into submissiveness by cutting of military and economic aid...what teh US wants is against pakistans own interests...they expect pakistan tobe up in arms at not being at a nato summit when their concerns are not being seriously addressed...they expect teh US congress to worry about some minor extra expenses for having to reroute supplies...The nato pipeline has caused a lot of destabilization and pakistan does not need teh hassles that teh US creates...US aid has been seen tobe usless in solving pakistans pressing issues and military aid has only made teh pakistan armed forces soft in their underbellies...unable to tackle internal subversion or US attacks onits borders...while all teh pakistan armed forces issues have been solved to teh extent that teh armed forces live in a better economic environment cocoon while teh people suffer the consequences but teh armed forces have not delivered on what they are expected to provide ie. internal and external security...

  • May09-2012--SP gunned down in quetta
  • May09-2012--The SC's detailed judgement in the contempt case shows teh judges backing out of a clear direction on disqualification apparently due to political loyalties...with one judge clearly depicting Gilani as a political criminal with no sense of honour or any democratic sense or credentials...Gilani is lambasted in teh judgement as a law breaker, criminal, wicked, fox, juggler and bully...with the PPP going for an appeal newspapers say that it could be two months before the ECP decides whether Gilani is disqualified or not as teh national assembly speaker has to send the issue to the ECP...There is not much to appeal about and one would suggest that Gilani should try his luck with the Election Commissioner...The SC has made it clear that it has left teh consequences to the personal sense of the convicted even though Gilani can be disqualified also for having his wifes loan written off...The judges have made fun of the PPP's hero's who are law breakers, murderers, weak and corrupt...It seems that teh judges have been forced to change their decision and not give a clearer verdict on teh behaviour of teh the countries top leaders...The judgement refers to the countries sages as dumb and its strongmen as weak and in the cradle...perhaps they like to rely on drones rather than on their will to fight the countries afflictions in teh thought process that they have crafted thru weaknesses based on crafty criminal behaviour...the PPP theory apparently seems tobe that the people supposedly love a political criminal fight back at teh system...the peoples sense of right and wrong however may no longer be similar to the thinkings of teh judges and teh politicians and they seemingly have no deep loyalties for the present team after what u may call four years of persistent load shedding, lack of responsibility and antagonism towards the people ......

  • May08-2012--trade will not solve any issue between pakistan and india...u have sold them cement but it will only benefit them not our poor people...the PPP logic that defence spending will be reduced and money will be available for teh people is a failed theory...nether india nor pakistan will spend less on armaments...the US tells india and pakistan not to trade with iran...why...?..because the trade benefits iran...india will only further subjugate pakistani politicians thru trade like they have thru a cultural invasion...thinking that people to people contacts will improve teh situation is also a false notion...Gilani should focus on aggressively forcing india to solve issues...teh only way to move a giant or regional goliath is to keep prodding it with a stick...that is teh only way to move teh deaf and dumb indians...offering them billion rupee gifts in teh hope that they will say "ok u can have kashmir" is an idiotic political ruse...even bangladesh almost an indian stooge or client state has to use the USA to pressurize india on some basic issues...while in teh case of pakistan it is india that is pressurizing teh usa to further subjugate pakistan...

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

the army image..

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

the contest is not so straight

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

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

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

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

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

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

degs and sidekicks
degs,sidekicks, sideattractions,mediators, cricket analogies, power arbitrators and a dumb umpire...is nawaz sharif waiting for the sucker punch...!venturing into the punjab...the PPP's cautious two...

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

the rabble rousers

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

shallow

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

an apt description

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

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

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

the empty grave

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

french revolutionaries

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

the azadi march

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

change

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

emerging from teh underground

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

the fake revolutionary

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

just Rs.600

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

from a dawn blog

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

debacle in Dacca

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

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

the chabri wala

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