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 Oct16-31, 2016


  • Oct31-2016--while the PMLq is a doghli party having supported the PMLn candidate in the jhelum bye-election its Moonis Elahi was booked for bringing in a truckload of sticks and flags to islamabad
  • Oct31-2016--The government suddenly removed the blocking of people entering from KP for the PTI jalsa as people questioned the governments attitude in barricading the motorway, lal haveli and banigala...the government accused a PTI minister of bringing in a bottle of alcohol which he said was honey..they also said that weapons were recovered from his car while the minister escaped back to KP...Imran Khan said that a huge crowd would participate while the government said that an islamabad lockdown would be a crime against the state...several smaller organisation have often blocked islamabad without major governmental opposition
  • Oct31-2016--In what many point to as the chinese attempts to get a bigger stake in the countries economy...The dubious Abraaj group has decided to sell their 66.4% stake in K-Electric the karachi power utility...while the government has not shown any reaction a few directors say that they have not been consulted...Abraaj says that it has increased power generation by 1000 MW and invested $1 billion and has only recently seen some profits to the tune OF Rs.22 billion last year...so its decision to sell for $1.7 billion seems surprising...it might as they say be cutting and running due to the strategic problems caused by political uncertainty and almost continuous strife...The buyer runs a power utility in Shanghai and has almost 4000 MW of generating capacity...efficiency however is still very low at 30.4% down from around 40%...The chinese who are more hands on operators might find the going tough too
  • Oct31-2016--latest reports suggest that reports about the governments inability to decide on the new army chief maybe correct...some now suggest that the new rising star maybe the militaries head of analysis Bajwa...a stooping oldish figure... Nawaz Sharif fell for Raheel Shareef because of his pro government analysis...while many point to his being an ahmedi others say that he is a straight sunni...!Hayat and Javed Ramday were thought tobe the earlier heir apparents however the Imran Khan strategies might have changed how the Nawaz Sharif think tank thinks...many have pointed to Nawaz Sharifs almost sidelined status and inability in decision making and his following of dubious analysis...
  • Oct31-2016--In what seems pretty surprising the interior minister says they have never had any hard talk(tulkhi) despite all the terrorism and reported difference of opinions between Nawaz Sharif and the army chief... Shabaz Sharif never had any problems with the ISI chief...This in the context of the Cyril Almeida report on serious talk between the top officials of the country...he also said that such a meeting never took place...after reported contacts were reported between Mariam safdar and cyril almeida the media reported that the army chief wanted two culprits tobe handed over to the army...one wonders why he took several ministers to meet the army chief at his home when nothing had happened..one can only suggest that a serious meeting to sort out differences was held at the army house because the primeministers house was bugged...???reports from unconfirmed sources suggest that thinks like who would be the next primeminister if Nawaz sharif was asked to stand down by the SC etc...he also suggests that the information minister knew about the report tobe published of the non meeting and did nothing about it...others suggest that the information minister might have been asked to leave office after his terrible handling of the PTI siege...one wonders at the hoopla when such a meeting never took place...many however suggest that the primeminister is to blame and he is scapegoating the information minister...such reports have routinely appeared about differences between the army and the government..others suggest that both the army and the government are quilty of propaganda against each other...many point to the almost brazen pro Raheel Sharif propaganda campaign that almost brought down the government...the army protagonists directly accuse Nawaz Sharif of bad governance while trying to portray Raheel Shareef as an angel from heaven...!while the government campaign is more subdued they also accuse the army of supporting non state actors...if true that is one of the greatest climbdowns by a primeminister who supopsoedly started out as a Taleban stooge...!
  • Oct30-2016--The PTI seems to have been undone by the extreme manhandling by the PMLn...while Sheikh rashid did put some egg on Nawaz Sharifs pockmarked face Imran Khan was almost house bound...with attempts at blocking all roads to Islamabad the government has done what the PTI wanted...with Imran Khans extremist foe Pervez Rashid out of the way Imran should at least breathe a bit more easily...however he should prepare the local party workers to quickly get into position if the government clampdown continues...at the moment workers donot know where and when to gather...apparently the government blocked the motorway after 900 armed men tried to reach Islamabad...Imran should cancel the gathering if manpower is not available and try at a later date...however many feel that Imran may have to backout if the SC shows some skill in handling the Panamagate issue...Shah Mahmood urged the PMLn to pass the PTI panamagate enquiry bill thru parliament if they wanted the protest stopped...
  • Oct30-2016--The information minister has been fired so that an investigation into the Cyril almeida report can get underway...the information minister is not usually at a high level internal security meeting...it is also being reported that the defence minister has left the country
  • Oct30-2016--The Punjab government has cutoff KP from the punjab by blocking the roads with sand and blocking the motorway with containers...reports also of blockages on entering Islamabad from Punjab with bridges blocked with mud...!
  • Oct30-2016--In what can be termed a freak accident an army colonel died after falling into a ditch at night while walking on the motorway after it had been blocked...
  • Oct30-2016--five die in a sectarian attack after gunmen fired in a tent of a womens majlis in karachi
  • Oct29-2016--In what seems tobe the general feeling the PMLn also has agreed that a number of power stations may fall short of completion by 2018...they have therefore decided to tender for another RLNG power plant of 1200MW based on imported fuel...whether it can be completed in two years seems a bit difficult as three years is the normal completion period...given that a six month period would be needed to place the orders...construction and shipment probably more than a year ...that leaves only a few months for installation...at the moment the ministry says they have 2632MW of hydropower and 3960MW of coal plants slated for completion by 2018...only one unit of neelum jhelum is tobe completed this year...and the other units could take upto two years...they suggest that with other forms of energy they will have doubled it to 13207MW which looks like an impossibility at the moment...they also suggest that another 20380MW will be on line by by 2022...with the uncertainty of any mega hydel projects the government should keep in mind that hydel power only maximizes in the summer months...
  • Oct29-2016--another five alqaeda men killed in lahore in a suspicious puls muqabila...
  • Oct29-2016--The SC has decided to hear the panama cases with a larger five man bench...justice khilji dropped from earlier bench..the bench can now be considered tobe mildly aggressive...one possibility available to the judiciary is to form an investigative team to interrogate the head of the sharifs panama companies Mariam Safdar...even though both nawaz sharif and his wife claim the mayfair apartments as theirs...!
  • Oct29-2016--harsh tactics by the PMLn have forced the cancellation of the sheikh rashid rallies in raja bazaar as PTI activists clashed with police at committee chowk and protested in lahore...numerous arrests by police forced PTI workers to gather at bani galla...murree road shutdown..police clashes at banigala and committee chowk...Imran Khan virtually under house arrest...in contrast the PTI allowed a nawaz sharif jalsa in kohat with minor clashes/demos
  • Oct29-2016--in what seems tobe an overkill all roads leading to Bhabra bazaar were blocked with multiple containers in a haphazard manner...to block a sheikh rashid rally or jalsa...the government which had seized hundreds of containers over the past days had no where to put them after the courts ordered the government not to block any road in islamabad
  • Oct28-2016--four militants killed in quetta gunbattle as balochistan government demands pre 1958 policing powers
  • Oct28-2016--pakistan expelled an indian HC official and his family...a havaldar working in the pakistan embassy visa section was expelled after he got documents of indian plans to attack across the LOC...India killed another three pakistanis thru firing across across the LOC and working boundary
  • Oct28-2016--The governments fright at the PTI shutdown islamabad protest came to light clearly as government supporting IHC judge stopped Imran Khan from blocking entry points to the city or paralysing the city...the judge also stopped the government from blocking roads and asked Imran khan to hold his rally in a corner of the Parade ground...The government has previously not stopped the MWM and other even smaller groups from blocking entry points to various cities...there were scuffles after the government blocked even an indoor PTI gathering...in another first the police warned hotels and guest houses from giving PTI men accommodation...!The PTI oredered a countrywide protest against the government threats and attitude of the police
  • Oct28-2016--a realtors rally against excessive taxation was stopped by police at koral chowk and than at khanna pul... however the police inefficiency against small crowds was demonstrated by the blockage of all traffic at various places from bahria to faizabad
  • Oct25-2016--two killed in indians heavy mortar firing along the working boundary with occupied kashmir
  • Oct25-2016--four militants dead in an attack on a quetta police training center where one trainee was killed...
  • Oct25-2016--two custom officers killed in mastung as two more of those hurt in a jiwani bazaar attack die
  • Oct25-2016--The lal masjid has also declared the sharifs tobe devil incarnate and have suggested that they will support the jihad if the barelvis of the PAT stay away...The deobandis are regarded as Nawaz Sharif supporters and have more of a militaristic attitude compared to the pathetic barelvis...both imran khan and the lal masjid have declared Nawaz Sharif tobe a security threat and many analysts regard him as a narendra modi hand maiden...the indians are trying to prop up Nawaz Sharif thru propaganda as suggested also by Imran Khan
  • Oct25-2016--many have surmised that Nawaz Sharif has previously used the shiites to block the faizabad-zero point road and also allowed them to block many country city entry and exit points..therefore in theory they support such actions as the Imran Khan seige...others have suggested that the threat from the army might be mounting as the army chief decision could be made in early to mid November...that is usually the the time that the army can be easily destabilized...many are suggesting with islamabad blocked the army would avoid a coup or any serious military action...however Imran Khan while praising the militaries actions jokingly against internally weak opponents like the taleban, baloch-irani insurgents, chotu gang, mqm, religious insurgencies...has urged them to help out by eliminating the 'motu gang'..imran khan has also critisized the defence minister for not defending the armed forces and intelligence agencies...however many regard the militaries dealing with indian aggression as pathetically inept...despite knowing that the indians refuse any sort of negotiations on kashmir raheel sharif has been calling for a solution to the kashmir problem from western countries who are generally considered tobe in the indian camp...india as usual has the terrorist card which hardly makes any difference to the situation and is not considered under pakistans control despite government and indian propaganda to the contrary...
  • Oct25-2016--The imran khan blockade will cutoff all incoming roads to islamabad at entry points while the main jalsa will be on the faizabad-zero point road...the police have also prepared a list of over 400 PTI officials tobe arrested...while the PTI has prepared a 20 man lawyers team to challenge them in the courts...This time the demos will be organized by rawalpindi supporters of the PTI while it will be funded by PTI's lahore branch...the seige will theoretically only be for three days although Nawaz Sharif who was the only one worried by PTI's earlier army supported(five generals supported Imran Khan plus a couple of retired ISI DG's) dharna might be forced out of office theoretically or he might theoretically have to cede the primeministership to Imran Khan(behind the scenes)...many regard Imran Khan's tactics to have slowed down development projects and helped Nawaz Sharif gain control of his party...others say that Imran Khan has literally allowed Nawaz Sharif to win almost electoral contests in the hope that he will be defused and not make an effort and so lose his electoral sense by the time the next elections come around and they can sneak in with the supposed connivance of the PPP who have already been fooled to think that they will win the next elections..Bilawal Bhutto forgetting what happened to his mother has moved the SHC for provision of countrywide security
  • Oct25-2016--The daily Dawn suggests that the PTI is looking to influence the selection of the army chief as well as get the courts to consider the sharifs as major financial wranglers of the country...The government is trying to suggest that it has righted the finances of the country...the opposition is suggesting that they have doubled the loans and there is no change in any aspect of governance...with electricity load shedding continuing at the same pace and electricity prices skyrocketing...the small power stations coming on line have had no effect...only the first neelum power unit is slated to come online in december and no other major power system has even been inaugurated...there are some power plants supposedly like power units to tunnel four and five in tarbela but they will try to use some extra water being released and there will be no major difference in tarbela's output and will not be completed for two-six years..Dasu has not started and Nawaz Sharif just visited the site...the supposedly 60% of CPEC power plants are nowhere near starting or even completion...The chinese have complained that they cannot fund CPEC and the roads started in the CPEC corridor are apparently funded by other donors and thus are not a part of CPEC...punjab is relying on just distributing green cars to PMLn employees and no other major project is being undertaken in the punjab barring the orange line which the courts are trying to slow down..The WB/ADP/IMF has suggested that CPEC type corridor projects are being undertaken in many countries even in india and china where several corridors are being constructed... however with no associated area development no economic offtakes can be expected barring construction economics...The ADP however suggests that extreme poverty has been reduced to around six per cent in pakistan and that they are funding two of the supposed CPEC roads...No chinese funding of any CPEC road has been announced..others suggest that most of the funding was coming from donors like saudi arabia with china just being a front...
  • Oct25-2016--A three judge committee of IHC judges denotified controversial administration decisions of the CJ IHC Anwer Kasi who is also the subject of an SJC complaint...the CJ had reappointed a retired official and promoted kith and kin and raised payscales of the khateeb and a clerk irregularly...he is also supposed to have hired his own brother although no mention of that is made by the committee which was formed by an SC judges decision...The courts have for the first time looked at their own illegal decisons after the controversial arsalan ifthikar corruption was overlooked or smothered...The committee said that payscales could not be changed and retired officials could not be rehired while other appointments must be advertised...
  • Oct24-2016--after backing out of a fight with the belligerent indians Raheel shareef claims that the zarb e arb which was just a cleansing operation after the subjugation of the taleban was a war for peace...in the zarb e arab...north waziristan... was at best an invasion of an empty region after the population was evacuated..the taleban ran for the afghan border while their unprotected weapons/ammunition depots were destroyed

  • Oct23-2016--The pakistani currency is so weak that the government now to issue a Rs10 coin after it issued a tiny paisa like Rs5 coin...
  • Oct23-2016--The mqm-london faced the wrath of the government as the Rangers launched a crackdown and took its three karachi based leaders into custody as well as one who runs hyderabad
  • Oct22-2016--Nawaz Sharif insists that his government will complete its term...that could be but that government could also be minus nawaz Sharif if the SC shows its integrity and intentions to deal with panamagate in the real sense...it could order the government to replace Nawaz Sharif as primeminister until a decision on the case...such a situation would help both sides...The PMLn would be able to say that it has presented the culprit for judicial review while the PTI could claim victory on having achieved its goal of toppling Nawaz...can our courts really take their job seriously...one doubts that but who knows the weak court might turn the tables on the powerful government...!
  • Oct22-2016--The SC has ordered the sharifs and their henchmen to appear in court on November1..The court could try to show that it is serious in trying the issue or that it has no locus standii in the matter since there is no evidence to prosecute...it could also ask a lower court to try the sharifs who only have to show that they are not using illegal money ransacked from pakistan...!The court might also turn aggressive and order the arrest of the sharif children and ask imran khan to shut down his protest till it reaches its decision since his protest could affect court proceedings...!
  • Oct21-2016--The london based mqm started to rebuild by gathering people to offer fateha at their yadgar near azizabad...however Rangers restricted entry to the small crowd and only allowed a few women and some newly formed rabita committee members...PSP's kamal mustafa questioned the loyalty to the country of the sindh governor ishratul ibad...a conniving low lying altaf loyalist he was accused of having a dual nationality...
  • Oct21-2016--The defence secretary tells a senate committee that the indians maybe preparing for mischief...this after narendra modi expressed appreciation for the israeli methods against the almost unarmed palestinians...the indians apparently have moved an additional corp to the LOC and also moved their SU35's to forward bases...The SU35's are fast attack aircraft...according to the secretary...pakistan is now on high alert and has activated its forward airbases...to retaliate against an indian incursion from the air and ground requires extreme readiness and pakistans reactions have tobe fast and quick...pakistan does not appear have moved any ground troops...but there has been some activity in the air...to retaliate on the ground in a difficult terrain quickly requires fast transports/mounted artillery and reactions...so most of the retaliation to any actual surgical strikes will have to come from the air...pakistans only possible defences are thus short range missiles and probably F-16's in the air ready to retaliate...
  • Oct21-2016--The IHC dismissed a petition for the elevation of the army chief to field marshal...that there was no process or law under which it could direct either the government or the legislature in the matter...Raheel Shareef has already reached retirement age and said a year ago that he would retire normally...the primeminister generally decides such matters and could either give an extension or even a promotion..however there is some confusion on who would consist of the promotion board in case of a promotion to field marshal which would be an abnormal move and field marshals are usually only promoted in wartime...while raheel shareef has generally been successful he has run into problems with the indians at the end...while he has publically been willing to go to battle he has probably realized that it is not so easy to do so...and a propaganda war is the easiest option
  • Oct21-2016--The SC initiates proceedings on Panamagate after the government was unable to restrict the opposition to its gerrymandering and delaying tactics after the SC had rejected its request to form a judicial commission...The court has asked the sharif family to attend the hearing and present its case...It is now a straight forward judicial case on whether the sharif family should be declared guilty of hiding funds and declared ineligible to stay in parliament...The need for the sharif's to form a company in panama to just buy two houses in england with suspect resources is questionable...!not long ago even chaudhry Nisar did not know that the sharifs owned two mayfair apartments...the court will have to decide the legality of issues and where the sharifs brought funds from...!both sharif brothers got substantial payments from the panama company despite not even having any shares in the companies...technically the company belongs to mariam safdar who has at the moment disappeared from the scene...khawaja asif says that nawaz sharif has surrendered to the courts both judicial and those of public opinion...The court has suggested that Imrans khans seige of islamabad will be treated seperately and that it will not be politically biased...There has been mild evidence to suggest that the CJ is moving away from the position of backing Nawaz sharif totally...however most judges are still those appointed by the martial law and the current government...very few judges are generally expected to take an independent honest judicial position and question the very basics of why a ruling family has so many eggs outside the country...it is not only the illegality of having funds abroad but the initiation of hidden ownerships thru offshore companies with questionable dealings in fund transfers...while an ordinary bussinessman would not theoretically be considered suspect... when the very rulers and their sons and daughters do so than it becomes almost criminal...

  • Oct16-2016--The newly appointed mqm-london interim coordination committee held a press briefing at the Rangers controlled Karachi Press Club...consisting mostly of unknowns they tried to suggest that altaf hussain was the only bani of the mqm...however apart from farook sattar and two others who were assassinated by supposedly altaf gangsters there were four bani arkaan of the initial APMSO which was the predecessor of the mqm...a professor hasan arif is the apparent leader of the mqm london and future elections in karachi can certainly be more democratic as there was little or no opposition for the altaf hussain led mqm barring ethnic opposition consisting generally of pukhtuns and the sindhi PPP...the interim coordination committee tried to suggest that there was only one mqm but the PSP and the mqm pakistan are now almost realities...what happened in a recent by election could be a harbinger which will not allow the mqm members to resign and seek reelection due to the uncertain nature of support amongst the mohajirs...obviously with three ethnic mohajir groups there will be some sort of a contest on the mohajir dominated seats...The mqm london committee has quickly tried to seize the upper hand after the foolish british police released their seized funds...it is yet tobe seen whether the mqm can come together or exist in two or three groups...
  • Oct16-2016--after half a century of failures in making the indians talk on kashmir Nawaz Sharif touring a shiite outpost azerbaijan still wants to hold talks with the indians...the pakistanis seem to have joined the shiite group and their policies are aligned to iran, syria, iraq, lebanon and azerbaijan...while they can get along with the russians and iranians they are really not pakistan's historical allies...The russians are india's military suppliers and the iranians/syrians umbrella...they have little in common with pakistan which has been allied traditionally with the US and saudi groups...with the US trying to woo india and iran and distancing itself from pakistan..it is stuck in the middle...and pakistan is at best a parasite which is now not in the good books of anyone...maybe the pakistanis should develop their own positions and learn to stand on their own two feet...becoming hangers on in another camp when one is distancing itself from its own group does not seem tobe good policy
  • Oct16-2016--337 lawmakers suspended for not filling assets declarations
  • Oct16-2016--a petition was filed in the IHC to promote the retiring Raheel Shareef to the position of field martial...such a request can only be considered if the government inits wisdom had either rejected the option after carefully studying raheel shareefs record...however a general can only be promoted to field marshal if he has conducted a widespread war...many think the option was considered but the CPEC/zarb e azb general was found wanting by the promotion committee which could at best be formed of either other army chiefs or other retired generals...such a position does not effect the petitioners in any way and judges in theory should reject the suggestion...the general in the recent past has only been concerned about the CPEC which is not really anything really important apart to some chinese strategists..he has recently expressed concern about the reversal of the zarb e azb...many think that the army in a way were positively inclined to the taleban and their terrorist activities which gave them an importance not possible in normal times...they like the propaganda aspects while the taleban liked the terrorist aspects...one believes that the general should not be worried about CPEC and zarb e azb..because if a problem occurs it will have tobe handled by the government in the context and intensity that it occurs...whether the CPEC is completed today or tommorrow hardly matters and even without CPEC the people can travel as can chinese containers because alternate routes exist...to really develop the pukhtun corridor huge development strategies have tobe followed to create settlements...transfer populations and make them financially viable in those areas...that takes time and effort and cannot be completed on a fast track basis...!!!

the monument

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

the army image..

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

the contest is not so straight

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

military corruption

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...

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...!

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...

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

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

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

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

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

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

situation changes

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

the rabble rousers

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

shallow

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

an apt description

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

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

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

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

french revolutionaries

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

the azadi march

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

change

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

emerging from teh underground

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

the fake revolutionary

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

just Rs.600

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

from a dawn blog

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

debacle in Dacca

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

syria 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...
