muzzling the courts...!

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

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases

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

the chakri crook

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

gaye bhans politics

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

end of nawaz sharif

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

political cricket

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

banigala

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

banigala house

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

The SC and article 62...

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

political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

raheel shareef

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Sep16-30, 2014

  • Sep30-2014--three judge SC bench probing the constitution on whether it can question statements made in the national assembly...litigants say Nawaz Sharif lied to parliament and defamed the army chief when he said he that had not made the army chief a mediator or a guarantor in PTI-PMLn talks...army has earlier performed this task in different circumstances...army chief did initiate process but the PTI/PAT were probably not willing to accept such intervention in which army chiefs orders would be final...litigants want primeminister tobe disqualified under certain constitutional articles whose validity is said tobe applicable prior to elections...however an article under which a primeminister can be voted out probably will stand its ground...theoretically uptill now the SC has not questioned what is said in the national assembly...although many say the legality of certain actions can be questionable...PPP also moving court asto whether the speaker national assembly can delay accepting resignations
  • Sep30-2014--blast in militant compound in Tirah kills seven
  • Sep30-2014--The ECP rejects the PTI propagated impression that votes were illegally cast or printed...for the first time he says electoral rolls with photographs were printed and the counterfoil also contained the ID card number...they also state that an ordinary ink thumb imprint can also be read if properly made...they say they are working on an electronic system of recording votes and have asked that all deputed staff be administratively responsible to the ECP
  • Sep30-2014--Rangers say mqm groups killing each other while some suggest that they participate in sectarian warfare against sunnis...Recent Rangers attack on Mqm office to foil kill planning many say...mqm offices seem quite suspect with numerous huge flat screen televisions which many say are used to identify killing targets...while Rangers have targeted religious groups mostly to allay mqm fears...mqm which is generally shiite in orientation says that everyday two shiites are killed in karachi and Rangers have been unable to nab the culprits...mqm legislators refuse to believe that their organisation is largely regarded as behind most of the killings in karachi for the last two decades...mqm not willing to tolerate any opponent who can organize a sizeable vote bank...while things have eased in the ongoing karachi sectarian-ethnic-religious warfare mqm refuses to accept that the operation has caused any change...there have already been sixteen bank heists in karachi this year and that points to difficulties in the politicos getting funds thru extortions/kidnappings...
  • Sep29-2014--six militants killed in an attack by 30 on a military checpost in Khyber agency
  • Sep29-2014--85 militants surrender in Dera Bugti
  • Sep29-2014--Big fire at a PTCL building on Egerton Road Lahore effects services
  • Sep29-2014--Imran for the second time says that he is against the resignation of Nawaz Sharif now but refuses to vacate the constitution avenue dharna despite being away from it most of the time and restarting a program of rallies in big cities...
  • Sep29-2014--Sartaj Aziz patheticly states that the ambassadors meeting with Hurriyet leaders was ill timed...how can something that we base our stand on be illtimed...both the indians and pakistanis should accept the right of kashmiris to meet and travel as agreed in several past agreements...the samjotha and bus services targeted this issue...india does not restrict any other people from meeting any other diplomats or travelling...Sartaj Aziz should adhere to pakistans stand of liberation for the kashnmiris from indian highhandedness...
  • Sep29-2014--a bomb blast at an IDP camp for the displaced from Orakzai in Hangu kills seven
  • Sep29-2014--A US drone kills three in south waziristan while the pakistan military bombed five hideouts in Shawal killing 15
  • Sep29-2014--Bilawal Zardari apologizes to former PPP supporters...maybe he does not realize that dynasties are right wing stuff and especially in punjab the leaders created an image of rejecting the people, change and neglect of the punbjab...in KP change is almost regular at each election and the party just cannot rely on a few families to keep its support without clear policies as the population increases...The party has literally no policy barring dynasties, families and provincialism...
  • Sep28-2014--a further administrative division of sindh into four is considered a losing cause as the provincial assembly and sindhis have rejected it...mohajirs should accept the status quo and work on non ethnic lines for any real future success...administratively sindh is already divided into numerous districts and the mqm should learn to work with the deputy commissioners or any furture local governments...many feel that the mqm or altaf hussein is the only political miscreant working on non issues rather than be willing to come, live and honestly work in pakistan...pakistan has been disrupted long enough on these lines of provincial and ethnic tensions and not much political mileage can be gained anylonger from these issues...
  • Sep28-2014--Dawn suggests that both dharna's are on there way out of Islamabad as the government on military advice is suggesting missile tests to increase its dwindling credibility along with the falling rupee...many felt that both were mocking the voters who felt that their votes were genuinely given...after literally destroying the 2013 elections credibility and having set in motion pro and opposing court cases the dharna's should have been on their way out celebrating at least a virtual victory in subduing a resurgent Nawaz Sharif who now seems tobe the head of a dead government frightened of even uttering a word on the issue...Imran Khan has already setup two rallies as if he is on the way to another election...many in the Qadri camp are disappointed and are leaving for eid...The situation is now more in control with the government literally looking on to see how the various court cases turnout...The dharna's and government could be charged for contempt under an LHC judgement while the SC can decide to go either way on many issues...The administration and police in islamabad are now under the control of the deputy commissioner while the dharnas's effect in Islamabad has waned to a minimum...The media's too are tired as it has gone way beyond without any real reconciliation or decision...PTI rallies were a much better turn on than the dirty smelly dharna's think the PTI...in a way the dharna's have battered Nawaz Sharif but he is still standing and has not been knocked out...The 2013 elections in peoples estimates have still survived the worst possible credibility test and hopefully the next elections whenever they are held will not be that challenge-able by the losers...! Many feel that the dharna's worked on the same basis as western and indian agencies by making the people feel at loss as the credibility of whatever they did was questioned into the dust making the country look financially unviable, corrupt and having a deep belief in negative practices...
  • Sep27-2014--Mullah Qadri who as opposed to Imran Khan is frightened of even leaving the constitution avenue has started to put down permanent roots at the protest site by inaugurating a nikah center where he married of three couples...!
  • Sep27-2014--while peshawar fast bowlers have shown better skills this year the 37 year old Younis khan is perturbed at being dropped from the one day squad...a person who who seems unsteady with being an authority figure he resigned as a captain from the test and 2020 teams...while his age and skills are said tobe better suited to the test side he was being re-inducted into the faster brand of cricket...however the present selection committee seems tobe going for personal favorites such as Umar Amin whose credentials are considered doubtful by many...pakistan's top order in one day cricket has been woefully inadequate...
  • Sep27-2014--Imran Khan wants three of his mna's removed from parliament for refusing to resign...he cannot force them to do so according to the 18th amendment
  • Sep27-2014--Imran Khan says he will extort seven trillions in taxes from pakistan's poor masses who are already suffering such policies in subjugation...such policies have seen electricity tariffs sky rocket unnecessarily and roti prices from Rs2 to Rs7...Imran Khan should realize that taxes come out of the pockets of the people...ordinary people...and cause prices to skyrocket...what use are seven trillion in taxes when they are going tobe wasted anyway...
  • Sep27-2014--nine TTP suspects arrested in islamabad on charges of setting-up senior army officers
  • Sep26-2014--28 bowlers have been called chuckers in the ongoing cricket in pakistan...of them 17 are off spinners...four of them have been banned including Junaid Zia a generals(former PCB head) son whom many regarded as chucker thruout...
  • Sep26-2014--karachi police in their on/off efficiency rigmarole arrest three for the killing of PTI's Zara Shahid...!while karachi's warring factions killed two police enforcers and ten suspects in gun battles and armed attacks...five killed in Panjgur and Turbat
  • Sep26-2014--blast hits karachi police convoy killing two passersby
  • Sep26-2014--PTI mna's miss meeting with speaker, NA...PTI insists that their resignations should be accepted en masse...speaker theoretically does not have to confirm resignations...
  • Sep25-2014--Drones kill ten in north waziristan attack...many feel that military changes have brought a pro drone team into place again...!
  • Sep25-2014--whether the government has learned its lessons or not since it is widely regarded as being unable to understand the peoples problems or interests...Ishaq Dar the architect of tariff raises now says that the government is not raising electricity prices...load shedding another unending problem is at an altime high with almost 8-10 hour load sheddings in rawalpindi...many have questioned the governments attitude when it requested a gas tariff of over 12 cents ,diesel tariff of over 41 cents and furnace oil tariff of over 26 cents for the nandipur power station whose cost has soared to Rs.90 billion(over $847million)which is pretty exorbitant when it is being purchased from the chinese whose equipment prices are considered the lowest...!gas tariffs in bangladesh are 4 cents for US supplied power plants...!
  • Sep25-2014--pakistan announce a lacklustre ODI side with umar amin, asad shafik, sarfraz ahmed, raza hasan and anwar ali the new inductees...most are not regarded highly barring sarfraz although raza hasan did have some success when he was initially selected......the T20 team shows new inductees awais zia, saad nasim, raza hasan...saad nasim and awais zia selected in the hopes of an agressive batting...two pakistan A squads show a mixture of new and old players with asad shafik and sohaib maqsood as captains..This might suggest that if misbah does not improve on his performances his captainship could be up for grabs...
  • Sep25-2014--another parveen rahman murder suspect shot dead in karachi encounter
  • Sep24-2014--the estranged punjab governor has started to make his moves on jettisoning the sharifs and being appointed primeminister...he seems tobe behind the plan to form a technocrats government whose behind the scenes supporter seems tobe the double dealing chakar baaz altaf hussein...known for his jugular politics altaf hussein still does not support the resignation of nawaz sharif as that would mean subjugation to the anti mohajir qadri-imran khan grouping...and accepting that the mqm an ISI run organisation was also involved in dhandli...
  • Sep24-2014--19 militants killed in north waziristan
  • Sep24-2014--In a move typical of the US antagonism specifically against sunni muslims the US pounded areas inside syria which are at best a part of the nascent sunni state called ...Islamic State...a red herring given its formative status the US airforce and navy mounted over fifty attacks killing around fifty fighters...This places the US clearly against sunni's and in line with shiite Iran, Hezbollah and the syrian administration...The IS has taken over a wide swathe of territory in syria, iraq and kurd areas...many regard it as an ofshoot of alqaeda but doubt US propaganda that the fighters belong to the Taleban...they are probably mostly arabs from syria, iraq and surrounding territories...with the IS attempting to take over the Sunni heart of an otherwise shiite ruled area most arab states are not really worried and the only real problems they create are for syria, iraq and turkey which has been flooded with new kurd syrians...The US has forced the arab moderates to visibly support them but they seem tobe only watching what happens...This is the third such attack on a muslim region or country in recent times...earlier attacks on afghanistan and iraq resulted in US invasions...the US has already been bombing IS area in iraq..The US has not bombed other militant organisations such as the iranian supported hezbollah(lebanon and syria) and Huthis in yemen...which makes the US specifically opposed to only sunni's...The US which has been practising non involvement in ukraine, libya, syria, yemen and egypt must be really frightened of the IS...earlier the US has bombed libya and put troops in lebanon in other arab conflicts
  • Sep24-2014--on the day the new corp commander peshawar and new ISI chief names were announced the Taleban attempted a high profile terrorist incident by attacking the convoy of the KP FC DIG...his pajero was a hit by a suicide car killing five and destroying three vehicles...literally in the center of the cantonment...The attack has come after the taleban seemed to have become subdued by negotiations, Zarb e arab and internal conflicts that emerge after a leadership conflict...however the sajna group from south waziristan seems to have rejoined with mulla fazluulah...mamy suggest that the dharna's which are attacking the legitimacy of the government seem on the verge of failure and that could be motivation as well as restating their strengths...An SC judge in a move that could prove tobe problematic for the 2013 Sharifs has asked the CJ to club together all 2013 Election related cases
  • Sep23-2014--23 killed in air attacks on militant hideouts in north waziristan

  • Sep23-2014--The ECP inits Election 2013 report tells of a very problematic erratic election which lacked managerial expertise...many see the magnetic ink fiasco as a sort of corruption unheard of and teh ECP blames returning officers for not following rules and being inexperienced in handling elections with replacements of personnel taking place at the last moment and other problems such as transportation, printing and lack of official space for storing material and ballots...!!
  • Sep23-2014--Rizwan Akhter the pro mqm Sindh Rangers chief gets the prized position of ISI chief...despite a terribly mismanaged karachi operation which saw him dealing with mqm opponents in various religious factions...however as he left his post the politically motivated killing in karachi restarted as many felt that killers in political groups such as the MQM and PPP were not dealt with...Raheel Sharif did not shift any senior Lt General and appointed the six newly promoted Lt.Gen's to the empty positions...giving Ghayur Mahmood the key position of the Gujranwala corp a motorized and tank corp termed a strike corp...Naveed Mukhtar got the prized karachi corp where he will have more political problems than military...apparently the previous corp commander got involved in rivalry with Bahria over a disputed flyover..he also becomes the head of the DHA which many think should start new developments in smaller cantonments rather than focus on upscale cities for the karachi rich...unknown idayatur Rehman from the northern areas gets the peshawar corp which is embroiled in a terrorist war to end a long running Fata terrorist movement...most of the new breed of Lt generals have experience of dealing with politico-guerrilla-area-terrorist wars(internal warfare) and are not probably as used to fighting a real conventional war...many feel that the army is not very accustomed to dealing with guerrilla type tactics and a guerrilla warfare school should be started which teaches the various known tactics that are used against political and internal terrorism ...while the replacement for the Sindh Rangers chief was announced almost two months ago the new ISI chief will have to takeover in 10 days...

  • Sep20-2014--many in Nawaz Sharifs position would have resigned despite his caricature of dharna's as an attempted lashkar toppling..however despite the support that he has unnaturally received from parliament he has been characterized as a primeminister who is incapable of dealing with an abnormal situation...he looks as if he does not know what to do as all the other characters also donot know what to do...the IHC judge has now ordered the deputy commissioner to handle the issues of security and when police should act to restrain the uncontrollable protestors...Imran and Qadri are pathetic as leaders as they say they cannot control their followers...
  • Sep20-2014--while the PPP has also kept murmuring about dhandli not many think that the party could have garnered many more votes given their lacklustre five year rule in which they could not tackle the taleban or the judiciary their only problems from start to finish apart from hajj and rental power corruption...they also got a primeminister convicted for refusing to accept SC orders in the SGS-swiss corruption of the zardaris...the situation probably only different in the characters involved as imran's dharna for the sharifs tobe removed...many will be looking at how Bilawal Zaradri explains the running away of the PPP from the polls and why they were frightened of the Taleban...many believe that the army was restrained by the PPP from acting against the Taleban although many see the otherwise ineffective Nawaz Sharif as relatively successful against the taleban although in a topsy turvy way
  • Sep20-2014--many see something strange in imran khan who said he would never leave the dharna in dashing off to karachi...many suggest that he too needs an angioplasty...he is over 62...! others suggest he wanted to see one of the retiring pro PTI corp commanders or look over the possibly new ISI chief(looking for a plan to somehow hoodwink the police and occupy the primeminister house)...others suggest that Nawaz Sharif is definitely going as he has arranged to get himself acquitted from three corruption references...many are again blaming the retiring Lt general's five of them in early October as well as the ISI chief for the uneasy handling of the problematic dharna...many suggest that promoting paramilitary chiefs given the unsteady nature of the country might not be a good idea...an ISI chief should be a careful studious person given the nature of his desk based job( zaheer ul islam even took to wearing suits rather than his military uniform) ...!paramilitary chiefs get used to the daily operations(on the borders or the provinces)...kill this ...kill that...attitude and might not be that good as corp commanders or ISI chiefs...given the situations in at least three provinces only paramilitary chiefs would have to be promoted as they see most of the action apart from the karachi, peshawar and quetta corp commanders...usually the DGMI and DGMO are sure shots at promotions but they seem tobe not acquitting themselves too well as are the directors at the ISI...The ISI chief is usually someone with a long history of association with the ISI as usually nobody knows whether an army officer is a professional or an undercover(ISI-wala)...The daily Dawn mentions Lt gen Javed Iqbal Ramday, Maj gen Rizwan Akhter, Maj gen Naveed Mukhtar , Lt gen Obaidullah khattak, Lt gen Ikram Ul haq and Lt gen Zamirul Hasan as possible ISI chief appointees...
  • Sep20-2014--In what many say is the mean, selfserving and unsteady nature of the mqm...whenever the country is in trouble they come out with issues that are only popular amongst themselves...while altaf hussein wanted 150 provinces his key terrorist ally Rizvi just wanted an administrative adjustment(musharaf era type) for karachi...administrations are run by the beaurocracy and not politicians...we already have around 130 districts...with politicians being immature and undependable many seem to prefer deputy commissioners now...given too much power things start behaving like karachi where everybody else barring the mqm have been destroyed...there is no opposition ethnic group or normal opposition and literally everyone was an mqm official in the karachi administration too with altaf hussein behaving as an erratic king/killer in chief and even the mayor behaving like a defacto primeminister and going on US visits...!somebody else wanted just 27 provinces designed on the divisions which would make karachi the biggest sooba...many suggest that unless all resources are collected by the center and than distributed to the tiny provinces equally such a system would only be successful in karachi with the rest of the country squirming with uneasiness and unhappiness...provincialisation in pakistan has never been too successful...!...the dharna's which see two supposed leaders from lahore just like nawaz sharif hogging the media has caused further disquite at the punjabs domination of everyday politics and media as well...that has made the farsi speaking Bilawal Zardari to suggest that he too is coming up with his dhandli politics..he seems to have seen a pool of dirty water for the first time in his life much less jumped into one...many believe that such silver spoon politicians take a long time to understand even the basics of the country...when u cant run four provinces will u be able to run 27 or 150 or even a hongkong type karachi...many suggest that it would be much easier to divide karachi ethnically into say three units...!administratively and politically we are the worst country in the world unable to handle situations without going to extremes...

  • Sep17-2014--while pakistan has literally controlled its taleban... afghanistan is again blaming the small group called the punjabi taleban which many regard as having lost most of its fighters in Fata thru drone attacks...unless afghanistan clears itself of the many groups that are infesting it...it will not succeed. US-India type attitudes will have little effect on pakistan...a group of militants attacked across the border from afghanistan losing eleven militants while three soldiers were killed...
  • Sep17-2014--many are critisizing the USA for not ending its involvement in islamic countries by going against the relatively unimportant IS...if the iraqis cant handle them than it would be better to divide iraq into three...the shiites are generally obnoxious to the sunnis and have caused the problem...when the US did not bomb them in syria which is also shiite ruled than why do it in iraq...it is usually not a good precedent to set for the US which has tried to form a european coalition against the sunni fighters...fighting a dissident group in a third country which literally has nothing to do with the US...It is almost similar to the US fighting a few hundred alqaeda men in pakistan and afghanistan...
  • Sep17-2014--Imran Khan has called for reducing the daily expenditure of the president and prime minister from 20 /21 lakhs per day...one wonders what the politically unimportant president spends such a huge amount on...many question the Nawaz Sharif choice for the presidency...the shoe seller seems to have no influence or peddling/meddling powers...

  • Sep16-2014--many feel that despite the oxford education Imran Khan sees himself as more of a guerrilla leader than a decent reform minded politician lying and threatening away...eg u cannot build dams in flat charsadda...despite having lived most of his life in the upper quarter economically...threatening to kill and take away the jobs of poor policemen like an ordinary urdu medium ruler...The people are again being fooled by an english medium type...the guerrila tag comes after imran and his guards attacked a police vehicle carrying a few arrested PTI types near rawal dam and forcibly freed them...!police also many say surrounded imran khans home with 1500 sipahi's but backed out from arresting him...while qadri attacks the pathetic sharifs...imran khan specializes in threatening policemen...many have also noticed how the PTI/PAT wala's almost behave like policemen themselves...others suggest that most of the imran-qadri demands have been met including an FIR against the primeminister for murdering three protestors...the islamabad police were not even armed...!others suggest that Imran Khan may have accepted the SC as a final arbiter although not in the chaudhry iftikhar mode...many suggest that in that case a suo moto process could be initiated to investigate Imran Khan allegations into dhandli thru a court appointed investigator as in the Arsalan graft case...others suggest that the SC could just in a four constituency case declare that prima facie dhandli existed and not even go into the details as demanded by the PTI...Imran Khan in one speech did say why do u ask for proof...which seems a bit pathetic...if imran khan ended his occupation of constitution avenue they could under article 90 say announce new elections in early 2015 under the usual process and even appoint an interim primeminister to handle the elections...!...many others suggest that the surprise appointment of the decaying Shahihd Afridi as T20 captain might have been one of the demands..others suggest that was a demand of the army chief who is an Afridi fan...afridi has almost lost his touch in batting and just rolls over the ball in his legspin...earlier his fast deliveries and occasional googlies were a treat to watch...many suggest that misbah has just saved his captaincy and had better improve his batting against the australians...a fifty and a few wickets against the australians in the lone t20 match could catapult afridi into the one day captainship although he had better be careful against the free hitting australians like Maxwell and Finch...the 150 provinces demand of pathetic foreigner altaf hussein falling by the wayside as it would only be acceptable if all provinces get an equal share in resources...although even the number of districts are probably less than 120...many suggest even the deputy commissioners in the old days controlled things better than the sharifs...if some disputes arose in say sixty provinces the imran khan dharna's would be taking place in sixty places although islamabad would become even more important...others suggest that one of the possible solutions could be LG elections countrywide with equitable distribution of resources by the provinces and the center...imran khans dharna has generally had little impact in the rural provinces...

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

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

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

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

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

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

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

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...

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...
