Re: Terroristan - May 1, 2019

Army may not be behind the protest (well in Pakiland you can never be sure about anything). The TFTAs are firmly behind dimran. Apparently Mullah Diesel saw a opening where both PPP and PML are down and out, Dimran policies are unpopular and he can grab some power this way. The reason dimran is soi...

Re: Terroristan - May 1, 2019

Apparently Imran Khan govt sent someone to Saudi embassy in Isloo to try and get the Saudis to intervene and stop the Azaadi march. It looks like the army is behind these protests (if not no need to beg Saudis to intervene) which could either mean blackmailing IK to get more funds for army or his ti...
