the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics June 16-30, 2012

  • Jun30-2012--Salman Butt who was openly thought to have ordered the bowlers to bowl no balls says he is not responsible for teh spot fixing even though marked money was recovered from him...he accuses mohammed amir of embroiling him...several of the pakistani players including kamran akmal were seen meeting mazhar majeed and getting payments etc...he says he fell into the trap by opening an ice cream parlour...Salman Butt seems to have had an account in pakistan which had over 100000 dollars...and pakistani players complain that they are underpaid...
  • Jun30-2012--fake mpa intruder confuses ASF at the Rawal lounge of rwalpindi airport and rushes out onto teh airport where he was overpowered...

  • Jun30-2012--five shot dead in karachi while five non combatants bodies found in Bara...
  • Jun30-2012--The PPP seems not to realize that it is meddling with the courts domain by not following SC decisions...since all institutions are pakistan specific they cannot remain aloof to government attitudes and teh problems in pakistan...since parliament and government refuse to deal with teh issue of corruption as well as other issues the Supreme Court has to handle all the issues including corruption...teh institutions including teh army cannot function in a vacuum and have to interact...eg teh issues of drones and terrorism...it is government orders that are followed and teh army despite having teh resources cannot deal with the issues with total force...thus allowing teh USA and terrorists to undermine teh country...similarly is teh continuous ethnic strife in balochistan and karachi...with teh government blindly allied with one of teh key terrorist organizations...similar is its refusal to fire foreign citizens such as rehman malik from governance...an advisor may have teh perks of a minister but he cannot act as a minister...similar are also teh governments attempts to belittle teh issue of important appointments which teh Supreme Court has to override......with corruption touching literally teh top positions in teh SC and teh involvements of teh president and primeminister being quite well known and clear it is imperative that it be dealt with without restrictions
  • Jun30-2012--Ashraf aka teh primeminister moves to resove teh issue of teh new CEC with teh PMLn which is at teh moment in a committee...with both sides having reccomended three names a solution will have to come about by voting or a reccomendation by teh chief justice

  • Jun28-2012--The PPP regime announces another 1.51 rupee per unit hike for electricity tariffs in May...
  • Jun28-2012--The SC announces July 12 as teh date for the government to update it on the NRO implementation primarily the swiss cases..The government is considering some legal aspects on immunity and changes in teh law...The government many feel given its attitude of protecting its own corruption should go for a constitutional amendment which protects the terms of office of teh primeminister, president, army chief and CJ unless teh government falls or election occurs or the primeminister is somehow ousted..other options are easier like writing teh letter or eliminating the law on contempt..but that still leaves the constitutional requirements of following teh SC judgements...The LHC also asked Asif Zardari to quit one office by Sept 5...although one does not know what action the LHC can take if the president refuses...
  • Jun27-2012--eight killed in orakzai military shelling
  • Jun27-2012--four more gunned down in karachi with one being a KESC deputy general manager...
  • Jun27-2012--another five killed in a drone attack in north waziristan...obviously teh new primeminister also does not have teh guts to order them shot down...
  • Jun27-2012--Gilani's whishy washy style of government seems to have been teh main cause of teh anti people system of government...price hikes and power and energy shortages...as teh new prime minister arrived at a cabinet meeting none of teh ministers had arrived...which shows teh terrible nature of teh PPP's style of governance...the cabinet agreed that measures taken by teh PPP regime to cover energy shortages had failed to deliver...
  • Jun26-2012--another seven killed in karachi
  • Jun26-2012--13 soldiers killed in upper dir afghan attack
  • Jun26-2012--In what is being seen as a bear hug after being disappointed by teh mqm(the PPP has been a complete failure in controlling ethnic and sectarian violence in karachi and balochistan) teh PMLq secured a deputy primeministership and sixteen ministers in the raja rental cabinet..Peji rental(Pervez Elahi) becomes the deputy premier an unconstitutional position which earlier was called senior minister ...The ethnic ghunda altaf hussein came out strongly in favor of PPP's corruption and opposed teh SC judgement in teh NRO contempt case...when the national assembly refuses to regulate itself it is essential that teh SC take a proactive role in having its decisions implemented by removing teh corrupt and illegal from teh government process...The LHC also initiated a contempt case against asif zardari for politicking and partisanship...zardari has been unable to play teh role of president of pakistan adequately and has not even met any politicians from across teh board just concentrating on his minor sindhi PPP role...many feel that raja rental despite his desperation in seeking love from the ethnic militants of 90 could become a raja powerhouse if he succeeds in getting rid of asif zardari and with the PMlq reemerge in the punjab...with the PPP failing badly in punjab the role of the PMlq is regarded by teh PPP as essential in keeping it afloat in teh punjab...many feel that asif zardari and Gilani have dragged the PPP to a near drowning situation...
  • Jun25-2012--three policemen killed in karachi ..two in quetta
  • Jun25-2012--The PMlq to get 17 ministerial slots while three old timers in raza hiraj, riaz pirzada and faisal saleh tobe dropped...showing some sense PMlq to include six new faces...
  • Jun25-2012--reconciliation which in PPP parlance means an anti punjabi vendetta and acceptance of mqm's continued terrorism...it has not solved anything in over four years and is not expected to in teh future...killings go on everyday in karachi while rehman malik trumpets the arrest of twenty killers...The PPP has been happy to crush punjab thru its deliberate policy of ignoring the power supply and loadshedding problem...hopefully that is teh only change which might occur even though it is quite evident that hydel production is not maximized and genco production is also about 30%...
  • Jun25-2012--In another cross border raid from afghanistan around ten troops were killed in upper dir
  • Jun25-2012--three rallies in karachi show that altaf hussein refuses to giveup his ethnic vendetta against karachi and pakistan...many rumours suggest that altaf hussein aka the mqm has a trained manpower of over a 100 motorcycle killers...and unless they are rounded up nothing is expected to normalize...
  • Jun25-2012--In what looks more like a martial law order suspending teh constitution the PPP issued an ordnance giving blanket protection to yusuf raza gilanis illegal era of governance...while parliament can do so as it has done giving cover to various martial law era's such a presidential ordnance can easily be struck down as it tries to restrict the SC in checking the illegality of any government act...the acts of government could easily have been reendorsed by teh present government by a simple order and parliament could have passed teh budget again...This MLO could go the way of teh NRO...
  • Jun23-2012--nobody from teh PMLq has taken oath barring pervez elahi as pMLq wants their demands met...raja rental is daggers drawn with faisal saleh hayat...

  • Jun23-2012--Islamabad provides full police protection to malik riaz as ACE initiates corruption warrant in 1401 kanal rawat land acquisition...chief justice opts out of the bahria case hearing panel...malik riaz seems to be hiding in the red zone...!
  • Jun23-2012--Dawn points out that a number of positions in top government filled by people living around rawalpindi and islamabad...ie teh primeminister,army chief,leader of teh opposition in teh national assembly, senate parliamentary leader and teh BISP and baitulmaaal chiefs...people must be really be frightened of travelling to islamabad...nawaz sharif says that teh sindhis are really corrupt and they eat up all sorts of resources available...eg he says the mazar of lal shabaz qalander is under construction for the last 15 years...raja Pervez Ashraf was born in Sanghar and he might start out by having teh mazar completed quickly...
  • Jun23-2012--Rental Raja as he is being called pushed thru teh riff raff of teh PPP and became teh countries 25th primeminister...The original front runners as in 2008 were scythed down by allies and and teh ephedrine scam as makhdum shahabuddin's arrest warrants were issued and he raced to peshawar to get bail...his fame is derived from being teh corruption front for teh rental power station scams that were supposed to provide high cost relief to the countries power sector...started by teh PMLq the rental power stations took too long to complete and some were old power stations and teh cost was high and the payouts double to the other power plants...in the end the rental power stations served no purpose and supposedly another sixty million went into PPP pockets...kicked out of government he was saved from teh wrath of teh SC until as the PPP support graph fell the punjabi ministers thought of as big shots in teh north were re inducted into teh cabinet again...however as yusuf raza gilani proved tobe a lemon and was thrown out by an SC judgement under article 63g...Raja ashraf as he is known is from Gujar Khan...he does not seem to have any lofty ambitions and did not make a great speech but did say that the load shedding problem would be attended to...Gilani wanted teh punjab chief minister to attend to it...however despite rumors of resignations and wanting to join teh PMLn almost the same ministers are supposedly making a bee line for the cabinet...many think that raja ashraf had joined teh PMLq during teh musharaf era...things are obviously not going to chang radically but might be a few people problems will be attended to as opposed to teh Gilani way of hoping taht solutions will descend from teh almighty...
  • Jun20-2012--army chief stays away from military leaders meeting..?
  • Jun20-2012--another six killed in karachis ethnic violence...headmaster shot dead in quetta related to teh marri,s
  • Jun20-2012--in what many saw as teh hand of god... riaz fatyana's house in kamalia was burnt as cars were set alight after firing by his guards killing a young boy who was with the power protestors...he used tobe one of teh biggest critic calling wapda a white elephant...now what u may call the remnants of wapda cant handle teh power requirements...politicians who have become wealthier and have refused to attend to peoples problems such as the power crisis have been suffering at the hands of power protestors...power riots declined but still there were disturbances in khanewal where cars, offices and banks were set on fire and lower level protests in rawalpindi and toba tek singh
  • Jun20-2012--The PPP has been forced to accept teh clear verdict of teh SC after they challenged teh SC thru teh speaker NA and by saying that disqualification is not obvious or not ordered by the SC and that teh speaker ruling cannot be challenged and that teh speaker can set aside SC verdicts...The judges ruled that teh speakers ruling was not part of teh off limits parliamentary process and could be challenged and changed...The PPP is now looking for leaders in a leaderless party...teh parties punjab wing is especially a yateem organization as punjabis are not usually allowed to prosper as leaders in teh PPP...many say the PPP should guard against teh gilani phenomenon of becoming too one city based and not reacting fast enough to problems...midway Gilani turned seraiki nationalist and lost support in teh rest of punjab ...not recognizing looming problems and refusing todo anything about teh power supply shortage problem are not politically appropriate...their electricity program needs tobe drastically overhauled and if there is such a severe shortage than teh 184 exempted feeders must also be disconnected or teh industrial sector be sent on a one month holiday...The PPP also seemed to have no program at the center apart from staying in power...their lack of understanding of democracy was also very apparent...democracy does not mean keeping teh same inept people in power when they have failed...as usual Asif Zardari saw non existent dangers to democracy with one of teh tamest docile fauj and opposition in living memory...teh almost burnt out and unattractive ahmed mukhtar and makhdoom shahabuddin being considered for the PM slot...other candidates in teh run are kaira and teh more political khurshid shah...this can be regarded as a victory of teh SC and the PTI and some dissident PMln wala's...In the end Gilani who apparently broke into tears was left crooked and corrupted...the only thing going for him was a pretty face amongst teh usually ugly politicians...his apparent acquisition of wealth thru politics was apparent in teh costly suits and 200 million loan writeoffs and corrupted children...he is apparently disqualified for five years from getting elected but obviously can be given administration positions...thruout he remained on a collision course with the people,PMLn, judiciary, teh mqm, zardaris...his refusal to devize a program which was pro people in initiative was his most prominent failure..hiking prices and taxes and supporting regionalism in attempting to divide the punjab to keep teh sindi's and pukhtuns happy...many suggest his constitutional amendments have destroyed teh power of teh centre to devize even ordinary people affecting programs...The PPP remained on a collision course with punjab and mqm...finally they brought in the PMLq as a coalition partner which was anathema to most PPP supporters to counter teh unruly destructive mohajirs of teh MQM...
  • Jun20-2012--The Supreme Court in a major turnaround clarified teh contempt verdict by declaring that it meant disqualification and that Yusuf Raza Gilani one of teh most inept primeministers pakistan has seen has been disqualified as mna and thus ceases tobe primeminister from 26.o4.2012...The PPP many say now has a chance to redeem its attitudes towards lacklustre, nonchalant,nonresponsive governance and appoint a primeminister who will use teh countries resources to solve its problems and not his own or his parties...they have to realize that dynasties are not what democracy is all about...a youthful can do primeminister who can push this country forward rather than drag it back towards a monarchist dynasty approach dull government which sits waiting for problems to either go away or solve themselves...The PPP has shown an inability to select teh right personnel and change even when teh court pushed it to remove teh prime minister...The PPP again tried to force things back and it shows that there is no one with teh intellect and power to talk and push things along teh right path in teh PPP...maybe it is time for new elections and new people in teh corridors of power who will not be frightened to solve problems and become hogtied by provincial and family matters...
  • Jun19-2012--a new SC verdict on disqualification to be met with bluster and bluffs says teh PPP unless teh Sc gives a clear verdict...as aitezaz ahsan tries to convince an angry SC...by suggesting that he supported the unethical lawyers movement and supposedly is a supporter of teh constitution despite suggesting that teh national assembly speaker can overturn a court judgement without any basis...
  • Jun19-2012--four die as bomb rips a balochistan university bus in quetta
  • Jun19-2012--In widespread power riots spread across teh punjab people vented their anger at the poor PPP governance and burnt and pillaged...anger started tobe directed at teh PPP and politicians however the people still thought that it was perhaps teh electricity distribution companies that are at fault even though these things are decided in the islamabad corridors of power and teh load despatch centers...a train was set on fire in kamoke...a mall looted in faisalabad and a PPP politicians's guards fired on protestors attacking his home killing one...over 20 hour long protests occurred in khanewal, kasur, gujranwala,faisalabad, rawalpindi, attock, kasur,kamoke,toba tek singh, sorgodha, okara, chakwal, sahiwal and narowal as roads and railway lines were blocked and offices and motorcycles set on fire...
  • Jun19-2012--250 families protest teh qabza group nature of the bahria town chief and teh PMLq's chaudhries in teh salkhatar golf city and hotel project 15 kilometers from rawal dam in murree tehsil...many say riaz malik has occupied lands without payment and is blocking access to an old village...one irfan abbasi says his 617 kanals land was occupied while he was in china getting a liver transplant...The LHC and SC have been playing around for a year with the cases despite some judgements in lower courts...teh dawn says riaz malik claims over 3300 kanals of land of which he kicked back 250 kanals to teh Pmlq's chaudhries...
  • Jun19-2012--another ten killed in karachi violence... prominent pushto singer ghazala javed shot dead alongwith her father in peshawar...
  • Jun18-2012--as demand soared due to teh heat there was only 30% power for the ordinary public...power riots are reported across teh punjab with violence reported in chichwatni...The government has created a mess and teh first steps should be to cancel all agreements and ask power producers to arrange their own fuel...in summer months gas should be plentiful as well as hydel generation...It seems a common sense option that since teh ministry of water and power and the breakup of wapda have failed to provide solutions that a countrywide similarity in organisation be implemented and wapda be reinvented or a new organisation that handles all aspects of private, public and financial aspects of generation, distribution and billing......dividing wapda and shifting responsibility to the federal government have failed to deliver...pakistan must shift from agri centrism to electricity centrism to change teh situation...just hiking tariffs has not provided any solution...and more high level consumers have refused to pay their bills...one of teh solutions is to shut down industry and all commercial areas for a month...
  • Jun18-2012--with the country in dire trouble on various fronts...military(US,Nato, taleban, afghan and nato attacks), Judiciary(corruption scandal), power load sheddings, idle governance... teh primeminister and army chief flew off to saudi arabia to attend a funeral....As one of teh most ghastly load sheddings in pakistans history unfolded...12-22 hours of load shedding were seen across teh country apart from 184(exempted) feeders and industries which are only out for six hours a day...the government sat idly by as almost 2500MW generation capacity lay idle and reports of refusal to maximize hydel generation...with teh NTDC chief suspended...Grid station engineers and Load Despatch Center, islamabad which usually controls generation and distribution of power(meaning turning feeders/power stations on and off on just a phone call) had a field day troubling teh people...UPS's started to conk out and the heat became unbearable...with over 700 billion in electricity sales the government tried to shift the blame to lack of bill payments however nobody is buying teh governments attitude or argument since most of the bills outstanding are usually teh governments...
  • Jun17-2012--the country is at war over who or what is being maligned...whether its is teh judiciary,riaz malik, CJ, democracy ,parliament, mohajirs, sindhis etc.. as zardari and gilani ensure their own benefits after being kicked out of government...
  • Jun17-2012--another six killed in karachi as malik riaz denies giving plots, money, tickets, villas to journalists...

  • Jun17-2012--pakistan now willing to accept any sort of apology says teh daily Dawn...many suggest that pakistan should get out of teh energy sapping american relationship and and learn to live onits own...the PPP has brought pakistan to a new low with corruption in every aspect off governance...and obviously no electricity as it touts a development less budget...with trillions in revenues the budget deficit is still close to fifty percent of revenues...
  • Jun17-2012--a bomb blast kills 23 in Landi Kotal...looks almost like something Leon Panetta would do to coerce teh pakistanis...General Shamim who is emerging as the power behind teh throne has said that we will not back down from kashmir and follow american dictation...
  • Jun16-2012--another attack from afghanistan on an upper dir checkpost killing six attackers
  • Jun16-2012--karachiites kill another twelve without anyone being arrested...killers in karachi seem to have teh same protection as arsalan iftikhar...the judiciary many say is stronger than teh armed forces who have been quibbling with the US over an apology for the salala attack as the riaz malik corruption drone attack has been destroyed with just mild damage to teh CJ's reputation...others suggest that teh CJ's credibility is now badly damaged and his functioning will be impaired and controlled by the zardari regime...many suggest that there is noone left with any credibility in the upper echelons of governance...
  • Jun16-2012--The price/tax hike mania of teh PPP has been stalled as they reduced petrol prices by Rs10...many suggest that teh PPP's total failure to control power load shedding which has an unprecedented severity has literally ended the PPP's popularity...one minister after another is being thrown into teh power sector but the PPP's pathetic inability to solve problems has been demonstrated clearly...even with increased dam inflows in summer the power sector is just going from bad to worse...
  • Jun16-2012--The Gilanis maybe teh biggest benefactor of teh SC corruptiongate saga many say...if teh CJ's son can extort 340 million and get away without being even arrested than what are contempt convictions, ephedrine smuggling and 22 million extortions from party mullahs or wife loan writeoffs...many say the CJ was quite light on Gilanis disqualification although he seemed to suggest that conviction meant disqualification...while he also suggested that not following the SC orders may not be as bad as ridiculing teh judiciary or kicking it in the butt...the SC drone however moved onto the media and attempted to fireoff a few distraction missiles...The Luqman-Mehr Bokhari two almost failed tv anchors utube discussion of power brokers and hamid mir villas raised a storm at how a tv interview of malik riaz should be conducted...

the earthquake

the earthquake
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...

do u need this

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...

terrorists or dakoos

terrorists or dakoos
army and SSG called in to fight the chotoo terrorist gang...!!!after scouring punjab looking for the herds of terrorists the police and army finally find a desertified island in rajanpur where the chotoo gang has them terrified...while telling the french that they want to modernize JF-17's for a terror fight...for which an attack helicopter is supposedly more than enough...!

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...!

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

pakistan...
tears have tobe mended...accept diversity and learn that religion can not teach u anything...if u allow everything... all religions and all sects than there will always be conflict because humans will always find a way to increase conflict one way or the other...to control sects have tobe eliminated...india is not a secular state it is a hindu country and conflicts between the hindu and other religions are numerous...even the primeminister fights muslims and other religions...the control there is just the terrorizing nature and overwhelming numerous hindus...pakistan cannot create something new everyday...one system must be created and followed ..the quaid only said that everyone is free to go to their religious places but he did not mention sects and did not say that religions were free to taunt each other and run rampant unbridled in whatever direction...religions must be restricted to mosques, temples and the home...the streets must be free for everybody...!!!

how to protest

cricket security

cricket security
the last cricket match that i went to they would not allow my camera or sandwiches...so things have only changed in some ways...the zimbabweans had better remember not to sit on the kerb side of the bus...the terrorists here have no rhyme or reason for their attacks...although they usually donot repeat an attack...!

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...

the situations

the situations
the government attempting another north waziristan cleanup...asfandyar wali wants a straight line corridor...really it will not make any difference if it is connected to Ratodero or multan since a sindh to hasanabdal corridor already exists...the brave Rangers arrest a kid in karachi....zulfikar mirza forgets his sindhi cap...and information minister called a non muslim for calling seminaries a centers of illiteracy...

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

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

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

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

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

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

situation changes

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

the rabble rousers

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

shallow

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

an apt description

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

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

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

the empty grave

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

french revolutionaries

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

the azadi march

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

change

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

emerging from teh underground

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

the fake revolutionary

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

just Rs.600

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

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...

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...
