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...!!

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 an attack helicopter is supposedly enough...!

flash flood rains

flash flood rains
rains overflow on the peshawar outskirts as 30 more die in a kohistan landslide...

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

do u need this

do u need this
do u need this...the iSI and ISPR wont back down...!the campaign folders...u cannot move on and hang onto the old brass...!

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...!!!

the ex army chief...

the ex army chief...
the ex army chief...!...not interested in a coup or extensions...!

cpec

cpec
in trying tobe anti punjabi and get gas for the western route or the pukhtun corridor...!trying tobe a mixof imran khan and asfandyar...!

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...

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

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...

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

electricity where art thou...!

electricity where art thou...!
electricity...electricity...where art thou...upto the PPP era there was usually no loadshedding when the dams were full...now in the Nawaz Sharif era the dams are full, petroleum prices are down but still load shedding continues...what utter system failure...

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...!

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 ...!

na125

na125
NA-125 ... waiting for NA-122 now...the judges will have too straighten out the PTI perception that irregularities are not Dhandli...!

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'''

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...

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 Oct 1-15, 2013

  • Oct15-2013--over 5900 arrested over last forty days in karachi

  • Oct15-2013--balochistan gets 11 new ministers in a total of 14
  • Oct15-2013--cases against asif zardari in numerous corruption references restart...the most important being his 6% receipt of commissions in teh SS-cotechna case...only in pakistan can a person so deeply involved in corruption become president...!
  • Oct14-2013--malala yousafzai who is attempting to play two or three sides at once is being called a taleban stooge by many while others regard her as playing a meaningless media game in the west...she can hardly come back to pakistan unless there is a government-taleban truce and getting shot again would obviously make it a difficult job as it is...education in pakistan is a personal matter for most and one can hardly go against tribal and area norms...although many regard pakistan as having a huge educational infrastructure which can still not apparently cater to the peoples needs as educated jobs are increasingly limited by teh governments reluctance to create jobs...the private sector too is not expanding as government privatizes and absorbs needlessly resources which could have gone into real new investments
  • Oct14-2013--11 ministers take oath in balochistan which is being dogged by allegations of an avoidance of governance...!
  • Oct14-2013--NAB to pursue cases against asif zardari and nawaz sharif teh two kingpins of two political parties...related to corrupt investments, corruption,loan defaults, kickbacks and using government resources illegally as well as suspicious allotment of lands...if decided honestly they could end corruption in this country...!
  • Oct13-2013--Imran Khan urges the TTP to accept basic law and teh constitution...killing people thru whichever method is considered a "makrouh action" and such mischief is actionable under islam...since teh tribal areas are almost totally autonomous barring the presence of teh army they donot work under teh constitution...basically teh taleban have to declare that they will not use any method to eliminate ordinary folk...in essence stop terrorism...for any peace deal or negotiations to succeed
  • Oct13-2013--baloch organization claims bomb blast in anarkali...many believe that blasts in lahore are seraiki orchestrated and still others believe that former PPP leaders aitezaz ahsan, gilani and mustafa khar have much todo with teh countries terrorism while still others believe that they are teh work of the three gilani brothers who escaped from islamabad
  • Oct13-2013--The chief justice and teh army chief both appointed by a military dictator who could hang for treason continue to joke with teh people...The army chief jokes that if i am satisfied than it is a democracy...with Nawaz Sharif locking the doors of parliament and making fun of teh people with non existent electricity subsidies and the primeminister unable to fill important military positions many feel that teh country might be moving towards a docile military controlled system with teh people only having teh taleban(malalaisation:is she a taleban stooge..!)to look after them......the SC chief justice mistakenly believes that nobody can topple an elected government or subdue teh judiciary...The Chief justice or SC on teh other hand jokes that teh state industrial system belongs to teh people and not teh government which thinks it belongs to foreigners and teh countries pathetic industrial class...the people ie. the ones who have jobs in PIA and wapda distributers think that they can use electricity and sell tickets to benefit themselves...in that case many feel that teh CJ should intervene to appoint a new army chief, wapda and disco's chiefs and PIA chief and decide an affordable electricity price of say Rs8 for everyone...and stop the use of free electricity by KP and wapda employees and free tickets by PIA employees...nawaz sharif also seems unaware that teh indians are totally anti pakistan and pakistan does not need such friends who will continue to fire across teh LOC with our army and government issuing understanding noises...many feel that pakistan should use its radar evading airforce to bomb the people firing on us from across teh LOC...the chinese and f-16 planes have been repainted with radar evading black chinese paint...
  • Oct12-2013--two soldiers die in a car bomb near wana...as indian shelling in teh LOC Nakial sector kills a boy
  • Oct12-2013--The pathetic Nawaz Sharif urges iran to build gas pipeline for them on this side as well...!
  • Oct12-2013--Nawaz Sharif has turned into a complete dictator as Nepra too without any hearings or requests from Discos reorders teh same highly inflamable electricity rates...in one statement Nepra had teh gall to suggest teh unbelievable that low end users were being given Rs.5 subsidies while those being charged Rs18 were being given Rs2...teh rates suggest no government subsidies of any sort and only high end users are paying for teh poor...the price of electricity is still around Rs.8
  • Oct12-2013--The new NAB takes off with opening off six zardari corruption cases
  • Oct12-2013--The timid pakistani army chief finally after months of indian cross LOC firing repudiates idiotic indian army chief for his irresponsible statements...one can hardly expect teh blind to abbottabad attack pakistan army to be so brave as to infiltrate and fight in occupied kashmir...
  • Oct12-2013--In one of its sanest decisions the Nobel committee gave teh nobel peace prize to the chemical weapons montoring agency(OPCW)...The political bid by malala and the media failed as she has no practical achievement and does not even work in her our country and her statements are similar to most ordinary politicians in teh pakistan...the pakistani governments runs a widespread education system having over 75 universities(government and private) and thousands of schools and colleges as well as teh private sector which has started to challenge in high cost education
  • Oct11-2013--compared to teh countries other trouble plagued provinces azad kashmir has only 150 policemen on VIP duties...!it is a heaven even compared to islamabad
  • Oct11-2013--the islamabad police trying to paste all suicide incidents on the kashmiri gang of terrorists related hamad adil...they have even gained knowledge of a failed attempt to suicide bomb karachi corp commander zaheer ul islam in late 2011
  • Oct11-2013--small terrorist incidences in three provincial capitals...Quetta's city police station was teh site of a cycle blast killing eight...lahores anarkali food street explosion left a man dead...three bombers on a motorcycle died as their bomb exploded in manghopir

  • Oct10-2013--Abid Sher Ali says that in peshawar's surrounding area 90 PESCO feeders have losses of upto 95% and PESCO faces losses of Rs157 billion because of which there is load shedding of upto twenty hours per feeder...that is the Disco that should be privatized or given to teh chinese to run...!
  • Oct10-2013--sindh destabilizes as six including two policemen are killed in karachi...khairpur shuts down over ASWJ mans killing...and in teh qambar area a tense calm after teh killing of eight in a chandio tribe firefight
  • Oct10-2013--The EC has come out with the ruse that electronic ink should have been used for thumb imprints...many feel that there is no such ink and in most places teh ink was teh local "dollar ink"...if teh EC feels that the complaints are justified than instead of explaining them they should call a new election in those constituencies...The PPP which was non existent in punjab during teh elections is attempting to suggest that election discrepancies clouds teh PMLn mandate...and their loss...they are not going to bounce back that way...although nawaz sharif attitudes might push teh PMLn votes their way although there is no evidence of that yet...however since this is teh first time that ID cards were used the resolution of teh process should be clear...in rawalpindi one does not feel that teh returning officers were at fault as multiple agents have to verify that a vote is not being polled again and again...The PPP has not as yet challenged any individual result given their paucity of votes and the withering of their support base in punjab...
  • Oct10-2013--baloch militants continue to attack relief efforts in awaran and teh reasoning of allowing in foreign participants/ngo's is meaningless in this situation as they would be at much greater risk
  • Oct10-2013--hakimullah mehsud suggests that the US departure from afghanistan will have no effect on their militancy...yesterday the TTP had suggested that teh afghan taleban were financing them...which obviously goes against teh meaning of any talks with teh pakistani government who he says wants only to talk thru teh press...he says he is ready to meet a government jirga but will oppose relations with teh US who are behind attacks on seminaries and teh kafirana nizam of governance...the politicians generally regard teh taleban as anti islamic given their mischief mongering
  • Oct10-2013--nawaz sharif is literally tumbling out of his pre election positions...becoming a fan of musharaf teh way he has in six months been given bail and literally running from his support group...he appointed an englishman as governor punjab..has been unable to appoint/select key military personnel and today somersaulted to appoint secretary foreign affairs as teh US ambassador...he appointed abdul basit as foreign secretary who is best known as a hairless former spokesman of teh foreign office...mohd sadiq, amabassador to afghanistan has been appointed secretary to teh cabinet committee on national security...observers see a shiite tilt among many of the new ambassador appointments. Probably the hussain haqqani-pasha gate affair ended any hope for the appointment of a political ambassador to teh US which probably was according to teh wishes of teh military...!
  • Oct9-2013--The mqm which is generally regarded as having sway over karachis elections has been badly mauled by teh ECP's suggestion that almost all teh votes in NA256 were fraudulent...in two karachi NA seats NADRA has been unable to verify more than a few thousand votes...many feel that that teh MQM rigs the elections by restricting opponents from voting but this observation shows that mqm also extremely dishonest/fraudulent as well as involved in criminal and terrorist activities...
  • Oct9-2013--in what maybe a surprise decision a serving secretary interior with extensive experience of dealing with the top strata is being appointed teh NAB chairman...In nawaz sharifs first stint in power he was appointed to three grade 20 posts at once...ie rawalpindi, islamabad commissioners and CDA chairman and was referred to as in grade 66...he was also ADC to Ziaul haq who was nawaz sharifs mentor...he has had several stints as interior secretary and even worked as a home secretary and has served in teh army for ten years...with many cases being dealt with by NAB including Nawaz sharif cases and possibly new cases against teh PPP he will have his hands full...many regard the acquisition of land in raiwind and building stainless steel palaces etc there during rule as chief ministers as corruption...the general understanding is that teh nawaz sharif factories donot function very well and they have long outstanding loans...others suggest that teh best factories were taken by teh elder sharifs brothers...others feel that he is a person who has let things drift in cases of senior politicos and if he can run NAB as a real organisation than that would be a major surprise...
  • Oct8-2013--A 30 foot section of teh main gas pipeline blows up near sehwan...
  • Oct8-2013--PTI wins PP72 faisalabad with just 23000 votes while PMLn wins PP240 DG Khan with tribal chiefs wife
  • Oct8-2013--two killed in a polio team attack in the badhaber area as police van blows up...
  • Oct8-2013--The slowness of teh PMLn regime is largely due to the failing intellect of Nawaz sharif many suggest as he is getting extremely slow at making important decisions...this is largely reflected by not having an appointment ready on teh retirement of teh chairman joint chiefs...that makes General Kiani teh all in all in teh military domain even though he too is retiring...Nawaz Sharifs slowness is largely due to his advisors having dissimilar views and he is frightened of appointing another musharaf...many feel that he should go via seniority but others suggest that someone who has three years to retire be appointed...this brings into play guys like lt general nasir janjua who are to retire at end 2015...most of teh senior Lt. generals are to retire by the middle of next year...a more youthful lt. general could overcome teh lethargy of teh aging Kiani team...many feel that teh conflict might be caused by the president who is creating problems in selection...others feel that teh appointment of teh joint chief's might be teh stumbling block as three or five senior lt.generals are generally well known...Admiral sandhila many suggest with his unkempt hair might be challenging for the chairman joint chief's position and he should probably have tobe closer and acceptable to the views of teh new army chief...thus the issue could be delayed by upto a month dealing a further blow to the credibility of nawaz sharif as a leader...It is also rumoured that Kiani's retirement decision was largely influenced by corruption allegations...!!while others suggest a rift with teh ISI chief
  • Oct7-2013--Iesco bills for a cooler september have been inflated substantially in the Iesco region says teh dawn...while most protestors are floored by teh high costs of electricity many say that meter readers are just estimating bills and not checking them that causes upto 400-500 additional units being charged
  • Oct7-2013--three soldiers killed in bannu IED blast...five bodies found near iranian border
  • Oct7-2013--amid rumours of a head on conflict between teh army and ISI chiefs General Kiani has announced his resignation from the post of army chief viz Nov 29...This on teh heels of teh comprehensive army failure over a decade in relations with india...india neither wants trade nor peace nor solutions...An army chief who is perceived to let things slide until a natural solution is arrived at(which he calls democracy)...with do nothing rulers like teh PPP he failed in both karachi and Fata and now on teh LOC...It might be a blessing in disguise for nawaz sharif who is slowly and steadily moving towards teh label of being an idiot ruler just like rulers in teh past...Kiani might also have resigned to not create two situations......one now and one in november...help out his proteges and possibly get an ambassadorship or even a senior military position or promotion to Field marshal...many suggest that nawaz sharif the king of do nothings advized kiani and teh ISI chief to resolve things between themselves...Kianis going will relieve teh army from getting stuck in a rut and allow teh natural change that takes place by teh replacement of army chiefs...Kianis supposed successor is literally a politician and has played his cards well suggesting a move from fighting towards diplomacy even as terrorism has gained strength in teh KP towards incidents that have more effect than the almost routine daily terror incidents...rashad mahmood is teh suggested new chief with haroon aslam going to chairman joint chiefs...the ISI chief, raheel sharif and tariq are still regarded as dark horses...kiani has forced Nawaz Sharif to make at least two appointment decisions...lets see if he can withstand the test...many feel that kayani turned teh army into an ISI enclave and point to the inability to deal with IEDs...military intelligence many say failed to contain teh taleban by being unable to assess their strengths, hiding places and constant ability to reinvent terrorism...and teh ISI known to have contacts with everyone became a useless paper pusher...The dawn says that Kiani's reputation was clobbered by teh abbottabad attack in which he apparently played the dumb warrior and literally had a falling out with his mentors teh americans...other allegations include family corruption...memogate and obviously not allowing an organisation to develop by teh normal change of leaderships...he however won praise for not backing out of a losing fight with teh taleban and being a staunch supporter of a terrible system of governance led by corrupt leaders which he watched over and advized but did not topple...he eventually turned into a narcisstic copy of teh real thing...getting hair plugs and getting facials, skin peals and changing new uniforms everyday...many feel that it will be a challenge for any tough military man who replaces him to sit around and watch political incompetence and not be able to do anything about it...
  • Oct6-2013--five shot dead in karachi
  • Oct6-2013--Pakistan has informed india of its involvement in balochistan violence
  • Oct6-2013--two held in nanga parbat killings case ...police cordoned off chilas for 30 hours and carried out a door to door search
  • Oct5-2013--Malala moves into the lead for the nobel peace prize...usually it goes to people with some practical work or inputs...but it would be easy politically to give it to Malala who has developed a worldwide stature although it is not possible for her to do any work practically in her home country
  • Oct5-2013--Government issued photographs suggest that teh military is trying its best to distribute food in awaran despite militant attacks...The federal government as usual has backed out of supporting teh provincial disaster relief despite not having any other program to fund...The CM Balochistan has issued an appeal for international reconstruction aid...a team of punjab mpa's said that they would help out teh baloch government...
  • Oct5-2013--Nawaz Sharif's indian friends fire across teh LOC and kill a young child in teh Kotli sector...
  • Oct5-2013--In what is being attributed as a major change in teh nawaz sharif attitude of moving towards dictatorship rather than ruling thru public support or assembly approval...the FBR instituted a new 2% tax on manufactured products which are already quite expensive...this has not been approved by teh national assembly or the cabinet...this seen in the context of teh withdrawal of teh illegal nawaz sharif notification on raising electricity tariffs suggests that nawaz sharif is now a dictator willing to do things illegally...The SC has already warned teh government that it cannot order an increase in tariff...The process is for Discos to approach nepra and suggest that we are getting electricity at these rates which is around Rs7 and these are the rates they want to offer...nepra generally accords approval without any calculation or hearings...theoretically rates should not be more than Rs10...
  • Oct5-2013--Nawaz Sharif maybe backing out of appointing new military generals from senior personnel...the situation became visible by teh appointment of a major general as a DG ISI(additional)...this reported in teh Daily Times...todays daily times suggests that general Kiani a visible failure at handling teh taleban insurgency maybe appointed Chairman joint chiefs committee with teh additional powers of military appointments and handling teh taleban insurgency...That suggests that nawaz sharif has no confidence in teh top military generals and that could also open teh way to teh appointment of the ISI chief as the COAS..that could also suggest discord amongst the top generals in teh handling by general Kiani of military appointments and the taleban insurgency
  • Oct4-2013--after saeed ajmals candid reactions that an expensive foreign coach was really no good...moin khan states that the hafeez test career maybe over...while there are no automatic suggestions for new openers misbah supported farhat and taufeek umar were not considered...they plucked shan masood out of nowhere and many feel that teh new political players including the rishtadaris of najam sethi maybe coming into play...saeed ajmal also seems to turn on and off and teh coach needs to literally be able to talk tough to players under performing...and doing that in english to pakistans matric pass players is obviously not going to help much...higher fees to players who lose to zimbabwe are obviously a no no with most famous players getting substantial ad and equipment payments...it is sometimes surprising that pakistans best players donot know which bat to play with...pakistans foreign coaches have always failed and just keeping teh players physically fit is not a coaches only job...pakistan maybe going into the SA tests with zulfikar baber as teh second spinner...
  • Oct4-2013--In what could be teh role of teh taleban in teh future...! taleban attack and kill 13 of mullah nabi hanafi's men thru a suicide attack in orakzai...the mullah is accused of killing/having killed a PTI mpa farid khan and belongs to hangu(JUI)...the taleban could be seen as becoming a part of the countries mindless security apparatus...and working on government orders already...? Mullah Barader has been unable to coax afghan militants to meet him in peshawar and now is headed to hajj to have a possible meeting there...teh taleban say that he was still escorted by security personnel
  • Oct4-2013--The PMLn shows its poverty of imagination by suggesting that for a loan of 5 billion payable after three years they are ready to sabotage or mortgage teh countries economy without thought...many feel that the punjab consumers should not be made to pay electricity bills either...the present hiked power tariff means that consumers in punjab and karachi will have to pay teh countries electricity bills...The power minister said that in KP only 3-20% electricity bills were paid in various areas...!The PMLn should remember the fate of teh PPP which turned against teh people...Nawaz Sharif seems unable to understand basic economics as Ishaq Dar fools him into saying only 33% to pay the countries entire electricity bill...The rich these days comprise a mere 5-10%...people who pay more than Rs8 per unit are being overcharged and teh SC should look into that...development charges and subsidies should come out of teh government budget and not out of the pockets of electricity consumers...
  • Oct3-2013--beaurocrats jump into teh lead as possible NAB chiefs...chaudhry rauf and shaukat durrani maybe considered if Nawaz Sharif does not take teh consideration of meaningful consultation as being over and appoint a person not rejected by teh opposition...politicians now feel that beaurocrats have been sufficiently subdued to not attack government leaders and are more amenable to political advice...
  • Oct3-2013--will it be teh tough commando haroon aslam or the meek navy chief asif sandhila...as teh chairman joint chiefs...many feel that haroon aslam would be better able to plan and handle teh taleban insurgency as army chief viz teh status quo oriented general kiani. Many suggest that teh mild work oriented raheel sharif as better suited to teh position of joint chief...it is thought that the more political rashad mahmood is considered a favorite for the position of army chief...
  • Oct3-2013--bomb blast at chaman border post kills six including one Fc man...suicide bomber walked in from afghanistan with a donkey cart..two soldiers killed near mashkay in earthquake zone by a bomb attack...in karachi two TTP men killed in a shootout with rangers while four other militants killed in a shootout with CID police on Hub river road...the four fron TTP mohmand apparently had been picked up several days ago according to teh TTP...
  • Oct3-2013--The PMLn regime which apparently lacks the ability or courage to implement pro peopel policies is finding out that its thoughtless raise of power tariffs and we dont know how to run PIA but a few industrialists do is causing almost open mockery...The SC which seems to be backing out of defending teh rights of teh people mildly told teh minister that they had better reconsider what they were doing...
  • Oct3-2013--continuing on the dehati aurat scenario manmohan quipped that nawaz sharif also does not look like a dehati elder and he should go and deal with PIA being from a small country rather than think of being a world leader...!!!many are suggesting that nawaz sharif was advising manmohan on how to rush thru pakistan to help his faltering karzai in afghanistan...!! he apparently suggested that i built the motorway just for u...the indian army!!this as teh indian army chief suggested that he is handling 30 infiltrators from pakistan with great difficulty...
  • Oct2-2013--The governments misconceived tariff hike for domestic consumers comes in for flak from teh SC which suggested that teh government recover dues rather than order an inconsiderate price hike...government already recovering any losses even six months old as FPA...most of the hikes are being used to subsidize the lower ranks of customers and pay for governments inefficiencies which teh government should be doing from its own resources...most of the higher slabs are already paying upto 100% over teh price that teh electricity costs the Discos...the government in one go has suggested an increase in costs of over 400-600 billion which seems tobe beyond anyones understanding
  • Oct2-2013--the indian primeminister continues his negative tirade against pakistan despite having hanged ajmal kasab for teh bombay attacks...all teh others involved have been from india or the USA..pakistan also blamed india for arms smuggling and training baloch saboteurs...but pakistan only wanted india to stop its flagrant violation of teh LOC ceasefire and teh indians actions against LeT leaders which accusations according to pakistan are baseless and without any evidence
  • Oct2-2013--mqm activist arrested for murder of a senior lawyer and eight others while mqm protests recovery of indian arms from an mqm office and arrest of a few mqm hitmen...the mqm becoming largely inconsequential as it refuses to support teh operation to eliminate all hitmen from karachi which it used to lament all the time...!
  • Oct1-2013--In what can be called a massive increase in electricity prices which is unprecedented and sees people using over 300 units getting bills of over Rs.6500...subsidy now only remains for people using less than 50 units or 1-100 units...all other slabs will be charged at 100% over teh electricity rates charged to an electricity company...the maximum rate jumps to Rs.18...with reduction in slabs to one rates will jump for the top consumers...rates for 300-700 have jumped to Rs16...many suggest that this is teh biggest injustice with teh people of pakistan and many are calling for the removal of nawaz sharif as primemminister...prices of petrol raised to around Rs113.50
  • Oct1-2013--drone attack kills three in north waziristan
  • Oct1-2013--rockets land near balochistan chief minister on visit to awaran
  • Oct1-2013--moderate Ulema call on teh taleban and PMln to stop fighting
  • Oct1-2013--twelve shot dead in possible sectarian and political attacks in karachi as two bank robbers are gunned down
  • Oct1-2013--controversy continues over whether nawaz sharif derided manmohan singh as an idiotic village woman...which some says is translated as a village hag or nicely a dehati aurat...teh BJP a traditional anti pakistan hindu party was up in arms over teh issue and said it was an insult to india...manmohan singh said that he expected more pro india actions from nawaz sharif...nawaz sharifs attitude of blaming his military has not gone down well in pakistan...

katchi abadi's

katchi abadi's
ialamabad has a particular affinity to katchi abadi's especially for christians, pukhtuns and afghans...The one in I-11 has almost 854 families and 8000 imigres...afghans, christian women,dillapidated punjabi's u name it...The CDA wants to clear them out...sending them back home is difficult and buldozers dont work in the face of mass opposition...?

iftikhar chaudhry
the government must have withdrawn his bomb proof vehicle...as he now wants to enter politics...the country has already suffered under his judicial rule...the arsalan extortion would probably quadruple to the zardari levels...!

lahore flooding

lahore flooding
floods in many lahore areas are a new phenomenon resulting from teh haphazard shahbaz sharif development policies

the rains and the metro...roofs and bridges leaking all over the place...

weather weather

weather weather
the dawn image shows the variation of hot weather all over teh country...while it would be difficult to control electricity supply based on the weather the variation between hot and cold is astounding...

pakistan...

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...!!!

metro

inaugurating the rawalpindi metro...the ticket collector, the karyana merchant and the drugs(ecstacy )smuggler

how to protest

how to protest
the police and teh lawyers who are supposed to maintain law and order dont know how to protest and what the level of violence should be or is it even necessary...everybody dies but when they are killed by police they go crazy

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...!

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...

anti democracy

anti democracy
anti sunnis lineed up against teh sunnis...in an anti democracy dictatorship opposition and allies change daily...

The PMLn control withers...

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 ...!

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 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...

How it all started...coups and politics and islam and democracy...

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 hatchet man

the hatchet man
syria teh world is frightened about but not pakistan

syria a new beirut

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...
