political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics Jan16-31, 2016

  • Jan31-2016--over $4 billion dollars were spent on the import of small to medium size electricity generators over the last four years showing the steady pace which has been maintained by loadshedding...
  • Jan31-2016--private schools refuse to open due to what they say is provincial government resistance to provide schools security...at the moment private schools have occupied footpaths and land in the name of security fences and guardposts but no policeman is usually around...most schools have a razorwire fence with armed security guards
  • Jan31-2016--a scientist who worked for the countries atomic agency says that Pinstech is making radio isotope injections that are incorrectly composed and pose a risk to cancer patients
  • Jan31-2016--Rangers announce the arrest of Uzair Baloch the supposed PPP backed Lyari gangster...he had taken over Lyari after the PPP apparently had Rahman Dakait eliminated...family sources say that he has been in custody for over 13 months after his arrest in Dubai...The Sindh chief minister says that he personally is not opposed to the Rangers Operation...!while a BLF leader has been killed in a gunbattle in Mastung...
  • Jan31-2016--In what many say is pathetic economics Nawaz Sharif eats away the only possible gains for the people a possible 10% reduction in oil prices...he reduced prices of petrol by Rs5...PTI terms it a cheap Nawaz Sharif joke...Oil is at its lowest in a longtime and is being traded around $30 although it made some gains after reports of a 5% Saudi Russian oil output cutback...with Iran however ready to start full scale production it does not seem tobe enough...the government also jacked up sales taxes on various types of oil with the highest on HSD...with high foreign exchange reserves and record taxes one does not know what the government is doing...
  • Jan30-2016--there is a certain sectarian slant to the Shiite newspaper Dawn's second diatribe against mullah Abdul Aziz of the Lal masjid fame...they accuse him of sectarianism after he suggested that Shiite named people have been killing clerics in Rawalpindi-Islamabad none of whom have been sentenced...mullah Aziz has powerful friends in government despite suggesting that a Shiite ISI brigadier is out to get him...
  • Jan30-2016--Oil has fallen to almost $30 a barrel but the Pakistani government still prices it at around $70...Ogra has suggested that prices be reduced by some say 21%...under the normal tax regime prices should be around Rs30-35 a litre
  • Jan30-2016--the shebaz sharif regime banns the tableeghi jamaat from sending delegations to the punjab university or preach in hostels and mosques there...mosques in and around the university will have to get their sermons pre approved and the university has been told to setup its own intelligence unit...usually tableeghi jamaat teams visit the university and preach on Thursday evenings in mosques with supporters going around the university hostels and inviting students to pray with them in the evenings...the teams than suggest that invitees come to the Friday gatherings at their Raiwind mosque or center...the tableeghi jamaat while having some political affiliations has always been on the right side of the governments
  • Jan30-2016--power breakdown hits Karachi as 500 KV line supplying power from hub and the north trips
  • Jan30-2016--five injured in suicide attack near zhob cantonment
  • Jan30-2016--A PIA employee strike has started to hurt the sharif regime as demonstrated by a mushahidullah press conference in which he offered to halt the privatization for six months...a surreptitious sell off of PIA was being planned to some dubious middle east characters...!just as HBL shares were offloaded to dubious unknown international investors...the shares many say have ended up in the pockets of a sectarian groups Agha Khan...still others have suggested that the Punjab government or shahbaz sharif has bought most of the shares...
  • Jan30-2016--in what many suggest is the obvious divide that has come between Nawaz Sharif and the army chief was demonstrated at a meeting to discuss the security situation...with no one to occupy the second chair which has upto now been occupied by the army chief he chose Sartaj Aziz the pathetic foreign ministry advisor to occupy it probably until a new army chief gains sufficient stature...The army chief has distanced himself from Nawaz Sharif after what some say is a lukewarm US attitude during his visit...that in turn led to the sudden about turn on relations with Saudi arabia...sartaj Aziz who I think is the son of a legendary KP muslim leaguer is considered the architect of the anti Saudi pro Shiite foreign policy which has seen Pakistan reduced to a has been in Islamic and regional affairs...many suggest that Sartaj Aziz is not a worthy or as powerful a replacement for the second seat...others suggest that the army chief has been reduced to the status of a guest or nobody in government affairs despite his almost total domination of Nawaz Sharif's policies...many suggest that the Nawaz Sharif sudden about turn on Saudi arabia has resulted from the US shift towards its old Persian gulf ally iran
  • Jan29-2016--a serai alamgir resident lobbed grenades at motorway police after he was seen acting suspiciously near a railway line before blowing himself up in Domeli
  • Jan29-2016--mullah Aziz who is said tobe close to the taleban and the governments interior minister says he is negotiating with the ISI to stop its campaign against him..the ISI says that is hogwash...The ISI which is barely a shadow of its former self is known to act surreptitiously inits campaigns...Its actual job was to ensure a spyless army...however it is now supposed to only have its hands on electronic intelligence systems barring monitoring government employees..this the third instance in recent times of pro Shiite tendencies having overshadowed the ISI work...The ISI had a great reputation and was always at the cutting edge of intelligence activities however terrorism and the taleban have reduced it to a shadow of almost nothingness
  • Jan29-2016--four police personnel shot dead in quetta
  • Jan29-2016--Ishaq dar who it seems is pathetically unaware of peoples attitudes slammed another 100 billion tax down the throat of domestic gas users...while already having collected over a 150 billion in GIDC he wants the people to pay for an LNG pipeline to Lahore from Karachi to benefit a few industrialists...what that has to do with poor people is unknown...he also gave the industrialists another Rs3 reduction in electricity tariffs...the pipeline in theory must be paid for by the industrialists generally billionaire types who will use the LNG...there is not much of a people content left in this government and one must suggest that PMLn supporters are at best pathetic and unaware of the cruel nature of the sharifs so much so that ishaq dar turns up at meetings without preperations and starts begging beaurocrats to help him out...
  • Jan29-2016--LHC stays work on the Orange Line 200 feet from any heritage site...the Punjab government has sought over Rs200 billion in loans for the project
  • Jan29-2016--railway track near Sibi destroyed by an explosion
  • Jan28-2016--four killed in Karachi operation
  • Jan28-2016--while the Raheel Shareef statement of calling it a day is still in the air Raheel Shareef started out on an interim period by visiting Karachi and urging all out efforts to clear Karachi of troublemakers...usually the army chief can go into early retirement or LPR however it is also his job to recommend the best possible successors so he generally goes around all the corps and meets senior officers...Kayani had also announced his retirement early and Nawaz Shareef opted for the milder Raheel Shareef compared to tougher military options...though no one is thought tobe a shoein obviously the reccommendations of the two senior military chiefs as well as what the PMLn top leaders think of the person and the considerations they think necessary for the job...though the army chiefs job is an easy one the politicians would think that selecting a person not too keen to coup is the general requirement with maybe no secret histories...most senior officers are capable enough and have these days a history of intelligence, tribal warfare, education, political understanding, strategies and a general ability to do without thinking of the troubles or consequences...their abilities to fight a real war are however suspect and Pakistan depends extensively onits nuclear capability...however their inability to extend their powerbase overseas or even fight overseas has been shown recently tobe problematic...however there is always the personal attitude that surfaces in senior jobs and creates the reputation...these days u can even find senior officers from engineering, nuclear warfare experts and missile thinkers...it is generally how an officer and his support staff see the situation around them that really moulds them...the politicians are always a second away from trouble and the military has tobe tough not to want to topple them...many now think that Raheel could be offered a ministerial job or even replace the mohajir mochi president...at the moment both the president(mochi) and primeminister(lohar) are mohajir industrialists and many feel that they lack a local flavor or constituency...most senior politicians and even military generals have their children living abroad due to the precarious situation despite bullet proof cars, intensive security and mobile communication blockers
  • Jan28-2016--In what can be said tobe a weak uncertain security situation private and military schools as well all institutions were closed in the punjab till Feb1...reasoning not clear but obviously when threats cannot be ascertained clearly closing schools should be an option...
  • Jan26-2016--The SC in a surprise move deseatd a PMLn lawmaker Justice Iftikhar Cheema from NA-101
  • Jan26-2016--rumours about the Pakistan taleban chief having been eliminated in a drone attack
  • Jan26-2016--apparently Raheel Shareef has announced his decision not to seek a second term...while normally second terms have only come in military rule there is the example of General Kayani who was given a second term by the PPP...however General Kayani is seen by many as soft compared to Raheel Shareef...however trouble had been brewing between Raheel and Nawaz Shareef...there was the news that Raheel Shareefs foreign minister had announced that they are not interested in anything outside their region...Raheel Shareef had also started tobe seen as a sort of foreign minister type...that put the Saudi's in a very difficult spot who had openly sought military help against the troubling Iranians...that came to a head after the Saudi's beheaded a terrorist ayatollah and supposedly the ISI inspired mild shiite demo's in Pakistan...with the pro Iranian/indian Nawaz Shareef jetting off on a decidedly problematic peace mission...rumour about the whole sale corruption of the General Kayani siblings spread..a raid on an indian airbase which Nawaz Shareef blamed on the jaesh a mohammed and a terror attack on a pukhtun university in charsadda...with raheel shareef unable to convince the afghans to go after Umar Naray the dice as it seems was spiked...there is no terror in any of the junior Lt.generals that can be selected with the ISI chief and Karachi corp commander being very junior...so Nawaz Shareef can handpick anyone he chooses...the Sindh government also picketed the army chief on his Karachi policies...That left Raheel shareef no choice but to ask the government to pick another army chief to succeed him...while Raheel Shareef was in a way a filmi hero he had imposed some psychofants who wanted to make films and drama's rather than fight the terrorists...however he in a way failed by not completely eliminating the terror component...most believe that the handling of the Saudis by Nawaz Shareef was the key that finally convinced raheel shareef to call it a day...like other army chiefs there had been a consistent ISPR inspired pro Raheel Shareef campaign waged in the press and media that led many to believe that the military was interested in a coup...that worked eventually against raheel shareef...the problems in controlling Karachi were also seen as military inspired as the Rangers got hold of terrorists and the corrupt...The Asim case in which he was revealed as healing all the terrorists from all parties and the escape from Pakistan of the entire Zardari clan at one stage...Zardari is still holed up in Dubai...many see generals like Ashfak Nadeem and Zubair Hayat taking over the top two positions...others see remote possibilities such as Naveed Mukhtar and Hidayat ur rehman or generals who have experience of fighting the tribal war...anyone in the top six is usually selected as there is a general acceptance of whoever is the army chief...the senior most at the moment is serving in the UN...many also noted how the Imran Khan also some say indian inspired dharna was snuffed out after he met the army chief...!
  • Jan22-2016--the Pakistani delegation to saudia offered tobe referees in the saudia-iran fight...sort of calling the start and end of a fight and declaring a goal...the Saudis found Pakistan having dual interests which precluded their being honest mediators or referees...saudia also told them that they did not need referees as it was not a match like the Imran-Nawaz fight...!given the fighting ability of Shiite militia's saudia would need to depend on iran more than it needs Pakistan who say they are a power but cant do anything outside their borders
  • Jan21-2016--Three militants killed in quetta raid on a house
  • Jan21-2016--The only alternate that Saudia has against the raging iranians and US animosity is to become friendlier with the Chinese...In fact he would be better off with the chinese who could supply them a workable Navy to control the gulf...in press photos the king seems more relaxed with the Chinese than the malaise driven Pakistani duo of Nawaz and Raheel Sharif...Given his attitude Nawaz Sharif should be considered in the Iranian shiite camp...Since the americans have almost opted for the Iranians the kingdom has more options with the financially driven Chinese who are also military suppliers for the Iranians...The Saudis told Nawaz Sharif that they have no enmity with Iran despite known Shiite animosities and facilitate them just like Sunnis...the Pakistanis are driving themselves into a corner with the Iranians and Indians having almost better relations with the americans while Pakistan tries to consider itself an area superpower with no allies or the ability to really fight anyone in the region...the Iranians are known to have area ambitions and some see pakistans capitulation in allowing a road to be built from Charbahar to Gwadar which can initially only benefit indian construction firms
  • Jan21-2016--In what could be another wave of terrorism four assailants invaded the Bacha khan university in a remote village near Charsadda..around 20 were killed alongwith four militants...many had been relieved at the subsiding of terrorist incidences...however according to Dawn it was an afghan based group led by Umer Narra which did it on the context of the continuous elimination of its facilitators...The terrorists given pakistans weak policing of border areas and communications have constantly attacked pakistans weak underbelly in one place or another at regular intervals...initially many thought it would an indian retaliation or a work of sectarian/ethnic groups...the death toll in terrorist incidences from the last 20 days has risen to over 60...with afghan animosities and infrastructure still in a development stage there is not much that Pakistan can do under its present policies...The KP chief minister, assembly speaker, five senior ministers and opposition figures were in Scotland at the time with no one looking after government responsibilities...what they are doing in Scotland is hard to figure out unless they are studying the Scottish devolution...!1
  • Jan17-2016--In what can be a seen as a strange move the primeminister and army chief want to dash to Tehran and Riyadh to mediate...mediation and diplomacy take careful ground work which is anathema to Nawaz Sharif who seems tobe triggered by Imran Khans utterances...mediate what no one knows...Pakistan has been seen as generally seen as groveling for Saudi money with even the army chief supposedly after funds...Pakistan's initial response to the Saudi pleas for military support eventually backfired after the Pakistanis sought at least six billion......the Iranians could have their coffers full soon too given the end of sanctions...whether Tehran would agree to stop interfering in other countries to the detriment of Saudia is also not seen as possible given their recent meddling history...going back to a sort of detente with the Iranians running riot in arab territories seems impossible...The Saudi interests are usually in the gulf states while the Iranians have only Shiite area interests where Iraq and Syria are probably problematic areas...the Saudis could agree if the Iranians agreed to say dump Asad...! given the Iranian successes in Shiite states they would probably refuse to back down given the Saudi's lack of any controllable firepower in those areas...an example of Iranian power abroad is seen as the Bekaa valley in Lebanon where Iranian ayatollahs control power and have their faces emblazoned on large hoardings...the Iranians have also rebuilt hezbollah homes destroyed by the Israelis...whether they are looking for such a status in Iraq and Syria to dupe or subjugate Saudi power brokering at best is the real question...many see the interests of iran in surrounding the Saudis and controlling their weak points...whether the Saudis have enough power to defend themselves is a case in point...at best a working solution could be for the Iranians to back off from internally aggravating the saudis...the saudi's can only look on as iran literally controls syria , Iraq and Lebanon...but they would like their interests tobe preserved in other areas...Pakistan has been meddling but from a distance and would like a friendly iran but not a too distressed saudia...whether the Pakistanis want to preserve the Saudi dynasty which is generally friendly to us and opposed by Shiites is a point that the Iranians might takeup with them now that they have turned around the wests animosity...the Pakistanis have changed substantially from the undying friends of saudia and want to be friends only with their animosity prone neighbourhood some of which the Saudi's could earlier control...!The Saudi's could best understand that Pakistan is unable to project any power abroad and are seen by many as a weakling in the region...they should be trying to shift their dependence on pakistan's supposed nuclear power to other countries such as the militarily tougher turkey and Egypt...!
  • Jan17-2016--The SC has been asked to stop the hanging of one aksan mehboob who was picked up by agencies in July 2014..he was later said to have been killed in an encounter...but suddenly it was announced that he had been sentenced to death by a military court...
  • Jan17-2016--A cleric has been arrested for inciting the chopping of the hand of a boy for blasphemy in Okara
  • Jan17-2016--Dawn suggests that there are reasons to believe that Ajmal Kasab is still alive as suggested by a schoolmaster...while others have said that ajmal kasab returned from india after a month of his sentence...while this is old news the Pathankot incident in which nobody died has been troubling the Modi wife Nawaz Sharif...they have closed down a small remote daska mosque and arrested leaders of the jaish a muhammed a banned organization with not much of a base or leaders...many think that Modi and Nawaz sharif are conspiring against what is dead and buried but not solving anything concrete...but are also not willing to deal with some of the past...zakiur rehman lakhvi was arrested as a mastermind of the Mumbai attacks but prosecution has suffered from it being an overseas incident...The Indians too have not found the mastermind of the samjotha blast...so a status quo d├ętente exists and they are using supposed incidents to help each other...the Indians are literally all over Nawaz Sharif...with some saying that Nawaz Sharif told Modi that it was orchestrated by an indian steelmaker...otherwise a detailed story is there of what happened in Pakistan...if the story is true or false does not matter if there is not a duality of responsibility with both sides doing things honestly...the Indians definitely think that they have never interfered in Pakistan or terrorized us even with their army chief saying that they retaliate and take the fight to the perpretrators...Pakistan obviously has its own dossiers that the Indians never deal with...intentions and substance donot match
  • Jan17-2016--Sethi says that Pakistan wont go to india in 2017 until they fulfill their cricket commitments...!

the earthquake

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

the monument

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

the army image..

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

do u need this

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...!

the contest is not so straight

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

nawaz sharif's inability

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

electricity where art thou...!

military corruption

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

terrorists or dakoos

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

a new coas

a new coas
with raheel shareef breathing down his neck will there be a new coas...!or will raheel shareef be able to frighten nawaz sharif into retaining him...the frontrunner is regarded as Lt.Gen Ramday number three in the picture...but the other three are equally competent with the no nonsense Lt Gen Ishfaq Nadeem equally considered ...but many say his brusque bluntness may have frightened Nawaz Sharif...the other two Hayat and Bajwa are also just as trustworthy...with hayat having almost two serving Lt.General siblings and a father who was a major general...uptill now it was Nawaz Sharif's decision but now many think Raheel Shareef might want to keep the job...!

lansdgrabbing and bombing fata and foreign trips

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

duplicity of the pMLn

duplicity of the pMLn

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...?

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...!

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

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...!!!

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...!

power crisis

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

the situations

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

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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 ...!

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...

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...
