Et Tu, Imran Khan????

Maybe it should also say "And I am part of that coalition!!!"

"The cat is out of the bag" indeed. Last night when I heard Maulana Fazl had "agreed" to resign and even dissolve the NWFP assembly, I could not believe it...there had to be something behind it, I thought, especially because the date announced for resignations had been moved to Oct 02 instead of Sept 29. I said "Dal mein kuch kala hay."

Well, now we know. By resigning on Oct 02, Maulana Fazl has made sure the dissolution of NWFP assembly will not be possible till after Oct 06, the day of presidential election so the whole question of one federating unit not taking part in the election goes out the door. The full details are Govt given time enough to pre-empt dissolution

I am sure the other APDM leadership knew this and their excuse that we had to agree to the new date because Maulana was threatening to quit APDM otherwise is disgusting. They should have let him quit as they would have not been left with anything worse. Now they all have proved they are also colluding with Mush, and Imran Khan, you have no more excuses like you have for your support of Mush in 1999 and 2002...APDM and PPP are no longer different so might as well revive ARD, but thist time D stands for Dictatorship!

Musharraf: a diary of failures

By Naeem ul Haque
NEVER in the history of this country has there been a period of such unabashed and shameful political narcissism.

Ours has become a government “of one man, by one man and for one man”, to distort a quote of Abraham Lincoln. Today, the nation stands bewildered at the attempts of an unpopular government to give itself a Caesarean rebirth.

An air of pervasive myopia has engulfed the entire government approach to issues during the last eight years. A critical look at Musharraf’s years in power unfolds a history of monumental failures in the spheres of foreign affairs, economic policy and political development.

Ad hocism and short-term solutions have exacerbated the overall situation to an alarming degree, and major issues confronting the nation remain unresolved. It is in the field of foreign policy where Musharraf’s myopic stance stands most exposed.We must start from the Kargil misadventure planned by Musharraf when he was army chief but not yet the president.

This event led to the death of at least 600 Pakistani soldiers and international embarrassment and humiliation for Pakistan. This ill-planned and ill-timed adventure was totally against the foreign policy objectives of the then government of Nawaz Sharif and ended in a complete fiasco.

Later, as “chief executive” of the country, Musharraf made a mess of the tremendous goodwill available to him at Agra when his euphoric bravado during a “live” breakfast meeting with Indian editors resulted in the collapse of the summit. Years later, we are still struggling to find common ground with India in the midst of lacklustre initiatives.

The repercussions of Musharraf’s post 9/11 acquiescence in American demands, without any national debate, have now become obvious. Hundreds of Pakistani soldiers have been killed and continue to be killed by fellow Pakistanis in Waziristan. They have even laid down arms and deserted the army to avoid confrontation with fellow citizens. As a virtual civil war rages in Waziristan and Pakistanis continue to die, America and the Americans feel safe thousands of miles away from this boiling cauldron.

The Israeli initiative taken by Musharraf also turned out to be a big flop. It seems that Musharraf’s main idea was to cultivate the Jewish lobby in America for building support for his regime. The plight of the Palestinians was hardly on his agenda. Throughout his eight years of rule, Musharraf has never once directly condemned Israel for its atrocities in Palestine.

As a result of this initiative, Musharraf has not only lost face with the Palestinians but also with the Israelis as their hopes for promised recognition failed to materialise. (continued)


HUD Demolitions Draw Noose Tighter Around New Orleans

Odessa Lewis is 62 years old. When I saw her last week, she was crying because she is being evicted. A long-time resident of the Lafitte public housing apartments, since Katrina she has been locked out of her apartment and forced to live in a 240 square foot FEMA trailer. ... Thousands of other mothers and grandmothers are in the same situation.

Here is a must-watch video about FEMA and New Orleans:


Bush Makes Mockery of UN Declaration of Human Rights in NY Speech
He forgot to mention Articles 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.

Bush Threatened Nations That Did Not Back Iraq War
US President George W. Bush threatened nations with retaliation if they did not vote for a UN resolution backing the Iraq war, according to a transcript published Wednesday of a conversation he had with former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Aznar.

And remember, it's no joke:
'A Coup Has Occurred'
If there’s another 9/11 under this regime … it means that they switch on full extent all the apparatus of a police state that has been patiently constructed, largely secretly at first but eventually leaked out and known and accepted by the Democratic people in Congress, by the Republicans and so forth.

Benazir to US: Give me the Chair and I Give You Dr. Qadeer

More secret meeting, more manure pouring out of her mouth. Always surprises me as to how low she will go...
See "Bhutto Offers Khan for Power" She also implicated the military in N-proliferation so would be interesting to see if the deal with army chief still goes through. It might as the army chief is no better, willing to pay any price to keep the chair for himself -- he has already offered and delivered and murdered hundreds of his own countrymen and women to/for the US.

By the way she gave these remarks at the Middle East Institute, a Washington D.C. think tank, the guys who brought you the gulf war, a zionist group founded in 1946. Don't let the name or their mission statement fool you.

And, speaking of proliferation, guess how secure are US nukes? Well, see for yourself.

Also, lets not forget the hatchet job CBS News' 60 Minutes tried to do. Read the transcript (part 1), and {part 2) to see how "independent" and "unbiased" the mainstream US press really is...

Pity -- King Proves He's But A Slave...

...who would act so low as to kidnap a former (some say legitimate) PM of a friendly country(see Saeed Minhas' Is it US vs EU? Inside Stroy of Nawaz's Cooked Up Return to Pakistan). Shame on you Abdullah, Your Lowness. And Shame on you too Nawaz Sharif for lying about your deal -- No one would have held you accountable for it or responsible for it as proved by the SC verdict so why not just tell the truth? That "5-year" piece is bull and you know it. Why are you politicians so averse to telling the truth???? But I do appreciate your taking a stand against Mush and sticking with it. Do please tell Shahbaz to cut the "Bhai Jan" Drama-bazi. You are grown men, for god's sake...

I'd Screw 165 Million for $1.5 Billion: Benazir Bhutto

The shameless bitch is still at it along with her pimps including Amin Fahim, Sheri Rehman, etc. Says screwing people has been the ultimate goal of the party -- they don't call it "Peoples Party" for nothing! The only thing left is to decide the order in which she will blow after Mush -- Ch Shujaat, Ch Pervaiz, Altaf Bhai, Corps Commanders, and Maulana Fazl...Another hurdle is Mush wants a bigger share of the proceeds saying he has been screwing the people of Pakistan for almost 8 years and deserves more consideration.
