Dec 15 th is very crucial for memogate, the supreme court of Pakistan has summoned kiyani, Pasha, Gilani , Haqqani and Zardari, to give their statements on Memogate scandal. When Pasha went to meet Mansur Ijaz in London, he made it sure that Mansur Ijaz speaks to Hussain Haqqani in front of him itself. Pasha has those videos, which he might or might not show the court. Tagging along is the NRO scandal and senate elections...., Zardari might not be back, till he knows, whether his situation in Pakistan is defendable. Most say, that, Bilawal being present in Islamabad, is sign, that, hes waiting to handle PPP leadership, in his fathers absence and no coup happens.

My take is that, the supreme court will ask PA to be caretaker, until elections happens.

Asif Ali Zardari has more medical tests in Dubai - TOI

Aides have so far been unable to say when he will return home, after one member of the cabinet initially said he would go back to Islamabad on Thursday.

"It depends on the doctors, when he will be discharged. They will tell after receiving results of some more tests," Babar added.

Wrong kind of doctors, wrong hospital. Needs tests on social circle accounts & bank accounts tested. Well, maybe some bank accounts can be tested where he is, but specialist doctors needed from slumabad.

May I add the condemned Prisioner's death sentence was passed way back in 2002 but is still getting his share of briyani and procreation activities. His past actions in terror notwithstanding.

Aditya Ji, Prisoners in paki jails who show initiative by carrying out actions in terror earn rewards such as surprise burkha wraped packages, extended leave and other recreational benifits. With exceptional such prisoners, they provide facility for calling leaders of paki and foreign nations. The walls of paki prisons just seperate ordinary part time terrorists on the outside from the really professional terrorists on the insisde.

Iran guns down 3 Pakistani fishermen
QUETTA: At least three Pakistani fishermen were gunned down, while two others were injured, by Iranian security forces when they wandered into Iranian territorial waters in the Pasaband area, about 40 kilometres off the Jewani coast in Pakistan.

The fishermen, who belonged to Sindh, had entered into Balochistan from Karachi, police officials said.

District Police Officer Gwadar Liaquat Baloch confirmed the incident and said the bodies are yet to be handed over to Pakistani officials.

“The trawler, Al-Mariam, entered into Iran’s territorial waters when Iranian security forces opened fire on them, killing three crew members on the spot, while injuring another two,” he added.

Station Officer of Jewani Imam Baksh said that there were 20 to 25 people onboard Al-Mariam, which was engaged in illegal fishing.

“Three people were killed, while two sustained injuries. The deceased, injured and those who have been caught alive are in the custody of Iranian security forces,” he told The Express Tribune.

Baksh added that there were two trawlers. “One of them escaped when Iranian forces opened fire, while they captured the second one.”

The injured have been admitted to a hospital in Chabahar, Iran. Identities of the fishermen hailing from Sindh could not be determined.

A senior police official in Jewani said Iran had tightened security across the border with Pakistan during Muharram.

“The trawlers often enter Iranian territorial waters, but these days, Iranian officials are strictly dealing with those who enter Iran without valid travelling documents,” he said.

The police have tried, in vain, to establish contacts with Iranian officials for handing over the bodies and those injured.

Krasner can understand why Pakistan needs jihadis to 'defend' itself against India. Let him 'understand' anything but this 'defence' is total cr@p. Pakistan has been using jihadis to attack, aggress and grab India, not defend. It has gone even beyond that to subvert India from within. Krasner should know all that if he had been following Pakistan (obviously he is otherwise he would not have written this article) and yet he peddles a lie. Krasner is even suggesting to curtail normal India-Afghanistan state-to-state relations to satisfy imaginary Pakistani fears. Let us look at the increased economic and reduced military assistance under Obama that he peddles. If total aid increased by 48% and economic aid increased from 25 to 45 %, does it translate into less military aid ? No. That means that military aid actually increased from 75% to 81.4 %.

The American intention is crystal clear. They are *still* willing to sacrifice normal Indian interests to make Pakistan behave better towards them. They have never minded that their policies have endangered India, and Afghanistan too in the past, tremendously. This is how the US would behave in the future too vis-a-vis India.

+1 SSji.

If Haqqani network is a strategic arm of ISI, Pakistan is a strategic arm of USA's CIA, DoS and DoD.

So far USA has (publicly) confirmed that only the Haqqani snake is going to bite ISI, but they have to learn more to admit that Pakistan snake is going to bite USA. It almost came to that on 9/11, but USA being a very thick skinned super power it perhaps needs a bigger bite by this Takshaka.

Pakistan was deliberately created by Imperialist Britain so that (1) there is a constant fight between India and Pakistan; (2) India’s progress can be slowed down or calibrated; (3) US/UK led group can sell their ‘fireworks’ to us at exorbitant prices making us dependent on them whilst ensuring that their citizens are kept employed in their domestic armament industries.

Pakistan is an artificial nation currently kept alive by US/UK to hurt India. Why do they want to hurt us? They want to hurt us because we kicked them out in 1947. The sun started to set down on British Empire after 1947!

After independence, our government did not want to join the US/UK led group as they were our colonial masters. Although we started the Non Aligned movement, we swung more towards Soviet Union led group over the years. This ‘angered’ US/UK led group even more. After our nuclear tests, US/UK put sanctions on India for several years as if they never conducted any nuclear test. What a height of hypocrisy! If they really wanted they could have made India a member of UN Security Council with a veto power but they haven’t.

All of these policies stem from their colonial mentality – ‘we can have a veto power at UN; we can conduct umpteen nuclear tests etc but you cannot!’

So what are the solutions? We must make fast economic progress. India has the largest young population in the world and we must make the most of it before we lose this window of opportunity. We need to create thousands of schools, colleges and universities (which will make quota system redundant). We need to create employment opportunities for these people by making India the manufacturing base of the world. We need to collaborate with Japan as they have an ageing population. We must convince Japan to shift its manufacturing plants to India – we can give them manpower, they can share profits with us!

As far as Pakistan is concerned, we need to undertake covert operations in Pakistan to make the lives of radicals a hell. Once the ‘beliefs’ are shaken up or uprooted then we can claim all of Pakistan and Pakistani people. After all, they are the descendants of Hindu people. The land and the people, both belong to us!

Don't quite follow what you are saying. US has been involved in this region to further their real or perceived interests. Towards that endeavor, it has created some monsters it is now dealing with. Interestingly this acted as enabler for puki strategic depth. None of this has changed and predetes 911.

All those conditions that facilitated 911 (assuming we believe alquaida/taliban did it) exist with same and/or increased strength now. islamic parties seem to have gained strength across host of other nations. So, how do we reconcile US exit in these conditions, US sops to Pakarmy/ISI, back stabbing civilian government with "preventing another 911 being US's sole objective"?

Why can't AlQ/Taliban/Pakistan do it again (if they did it earlier)?

A gem from the Pakistani DGMO

The DGMO further said the attack was pre-planned and was aimed to strengthen the Taliban because the two check posts attacked were built to curb militants’ infiltration and had been serving the purpose effectively.

According to official sources, as many as 119 oil tankers and 111 containers carrying fuel and military hardware for Nato forces are parked in different terminals of Quetta for the past 13 days since Pakistan suspended the supply.

it does not matter, who is in control,in bakistan. Even if by some miracle army looses control and democratic form of governance comes into being with ISI and army under its control, they are not going to loose the manner of rabies infected dog.
Only hope for INDIA is to break bakistan into four and keeping the punjabistan in control by controlling the water flow

Y. Kannan if one says the whole society is radical then it becomes an unfixabale problem. So one has to see what makes it so radical.

Think of the OODA loop and map the TSP society. You will find the inner core that powers the Death Star is a small kernel of Pakjabi RAPE and TSPA higher command which are bound together with jihadi Islam. Get the core and things will fission.

harbans, What the Pakjabi TSPA found was in order to keep the kabila together they need to nominate the Sardar (President) from non-Pakjab stock. This makes the non-Pakjabi kabila members some sense of belonging. The rise of Imran Khan is related to keep the FATA/WANA based TTP adherents in check. The secondary benfit is UK will be the sponsor of this figurehead.

Lets see how ithe non coup plays out.

What next for Pakistan's President Zardari?
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree ... rible-mess
Was it intended as a provocation? Is Barack Obama seriously thinking of unleashing a civil war in an already battered country? Some commentators in Islamabad are arguing this but it's unlikely that Nato troops will occupy Pakistan. The death of soldiers stirred the mind of the nation to new activity. "Save us from our friends" is a growing sentiment even within the ruling elite.The overall effect has been a growth of dissent within the military and the uncovering of related scandals. It was one of these, described as "memogate", that may have led a frightened President Zardari to flee the country to Dubai, supposedly for health reasons. Though why Pakistani doctors in the country are considered inferior to their kin in the Gulf is a question posed by many in the country. Army doctors who, according to some reports, did examine him said he was "fine". A US government official is reported to have said that Zardari was "incoherent" when he spoke with Obama last weekend. His own official admitted he was unfocused. This too is nothing new.Exhausted by war and the resultant suicide terrorism within its borders, in the opinion of many bled white economically by Zardari, his cronies and the bubble class that lives in its own world – Pakistan is in a terrible mess, worse than at any time in its recent history. Zardari's status as a widower of the slain Benazir Bhutto propelled him to the presidency. His main function appears to have been to carry out US instructions and make a lot more money. With the amounts he has accumulated over the years he should not be unduly despondent, unless the pending corruption case in Switzerland is re-opened.
There is little doubt that the army want him out. Will they replace him with the prime minister, Yousuf Gilani, as the frontman until the February 2013 elections? Or order a behind-the-scenes dissolution of the existing assembly and install an emergency national government for a year?

Those are all good questions. Enitre books have been written on them. But there is almost zero reflection on these issues within the local governmental level. There is some abstract memory of Mujahideen and Pakistan as an ally but not a lot.

Pre 911 TSP would not have gotten away with firing on American troops or arming proxies to kill them. Not only that, TSP would not then have gotten POTUS to apologize for firing back and then sending more funds. Amerika is now in crazy space.

Puppet power as Sesame Street arrives in Lahore
In the fight against extremism in nuclear-armed Pakistan, the United States is deploying a new weapon - Elmo.

The lovable red monster is about to hit TV screens here in a locally produced version of one of America's most potent exports - Sesame Street. There are local productions in 20 countries, from China to Palestine.The Pakistani programme, Sim Sim Hamara, has not come cheap.The United States Agency for International Development, USAID, has committed $10m (7.4m euros, £6.3m) to the four-year project. The final figure could be twice that. It is a major investment in a troubled nation, where the only education on offer for some is in radical madrassas.The US government is hoping that as well as providing basic literacy and numeracy skills, the programme will teach lessons in tolerance, and mutual respect.On set in Lahore, the producers, the Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop, insisted that while Washington funded the series, it did not write the script.

The finance came with no strings attached, according to Faizan Peerzada, the theatre group's chief executive officer."I think I really respect the American taxpayer that at this critical time they have invested this money for the children of Pakistan, and without any prerequisites," he said.
RANI THE PUPPET
Rani is a six-year-old on a quest for knowledge, with a magnifying glass at the ready.
This farmer's daughter with flowers in her hair has a love of nature and a garden of her own. She is sporty, and fond of Pakistani traditional music but her defining characteristic is her hungry mind.She has an endless supply of questions, according to Yamina Peerzada, the puppeteer who plays her. "She's this over-enthusiastic child, who always wants to know everything. She's out-there, and confident."Rani's creators say she is over-enthusiastic, and unstoppable, deliberately so. "She's very much at the top of things," says the show's head writer Imran Peerzada. "We wanted to show her taking the lead.""The only requisite is to make a beautiful programme, so our children can get inspired."Elmo's new home is a Pakistani village, complete with tea-stall and shady Banyan tree.

On the contrary 10% seems to have come to a decision. If memogate is adverse he can be TSP President in exile iwth its own consequences. Otherwise he can come back with H&D. The above commen is one-dimensional. Being the President of TSP has it own Djiin aura.

--------
Satya_anveshi and Theo_Fidel. 9/11 has nothing to do with the US kid glove treatemtn of TSP . Its the "Blazing Saddles" threat of nuke armed TSP that makes the US give them kid glove treatment. I had called this a "power law state" paradigm. One has to appease a power law state especially when it has solid PRC support in its madness. Instead of removing the bullets to the gun that TSP is holding to its head the PRC is giving them more bullets as a hedge against US!

Need to make TSP a PRC problem.

I hate to tell you--it is not the easily-maligned elite or a disembodied "ideology" but "the people" who are, by convention always deemed to be virtuous and innocent victims and have no culpability whatsoever.

This is better understood on brf than elsewhere but it bears emphasizing nevertheless.

Is it possible that the pakistani's willfully aware of the Osama Bin Laden raid silently decoded the RQ-170 signature, and shared it with its axis of evil allies? RQ-170 that Iran brought down was done so by electronic warfare, which explains why its intact, and not in debris.

Was Pakistan tipped off to bin Laden raid?
Big events do not always have big causes. The British once went to war over an injury to a sea captain's ear. And today's Pakistan may collapse into military rule because of one man's eagerness to read his name in the newspaper and see his face on TV.

The man in question is Mansoor Ijaz, a Pakistani-American businessman who takes a special delight in political intrigue. Ijaz represents himself as a democrat, a secularist, and a friend of the West. Whatever Ijaz's personal views, nobody has done more these past weeks to undercut Pakistani democracy and poison U.S.-Pakistan relations.

In the 2000s, Ijaz produced a series of sensational revelations, which again and again proved untrue.

The embarrassment of bin Laden being found on Pakistani soil had humiliated Mr Zardari's weak civilian government to such an extent that the president feared a military takeover was imminent. He needed an American fist on his army chief's desk to end any misguided notions of a coup -- and fast."

And it's not like it would be so hard for the president of Pakistan to get a secret message directly to the president of the United States: There's a large and highly capable U.S. diplomatic mission in Islamabad. Ijaz's story was bizarre on its face.
:wink:
After all, if the conspiracy theories about Ijaz are not correct, we are left with only two other possibilities: Either he is telling the truth -- but that possibility has to be discounted by the heavy evidence to the contrary -- or Pakistani democracy has been corroded, and the U.S. and Pakistan have been pushed toward a dangerous confrontation by a reckless fantasist motivated by childish vanity.

seriously this dude is smoking heroin!!

Don't understand why we expect different and I always scratch m head when people say Amrika should concern itself with Indian interests. Despite all the fawning we share very little in common. They don't understand us and we don't understand them. It will always be so.

It is in America's self-interest to be truthful and mindful of India's security. Its losing policies of the last 60 years in the region can be boiled down to its indifference or hostility to India's interests.

This is the funda of complaining about US pursuing a mythical "self-interest" that is harmful to India.

dus percent went to Dubai "at the insistence" of his children
Pakistan's president has left an intensive care unit at a hospital in Dubai and is "resting to recuperate," his spokesman said Thursday.

n a report on the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan, Babar said Zardari is in Dubai "for his regular medical checkup."

Another spokeswoman, Farahnaz Ispahani, said Wednesday that the president was undergoing routine tests related to a previously diagnosed heart condition.

The trip to Dubai sparked rumors that Zardari had suffered a heart attack. But Babar, on Wednesday, described those reports as as "speculative, imaginary and untrue."

Babar added that the president went to Dubai "at the insistence" of his children.

Once again karma is trying to teach the great Amerikhan that if you lay down with pigs you will wake up with fleas.


Is indeed intact? Any links to pictures from the Iranians?

[url=http://www.thenews.com.pk/TodaysPrintDetail.aspx?ID=81199&Cat=2]Pakistan finally in peace talks with TTP[/url]

In a surprising development, Interior Minister Rehman Malik has expressed thanks to the Pakistani Taliban for not staging any terrorist attack during Ashura, thus giving credence to earlier reports that the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was in peace talks with the government.

But it remains unclear whether Rehman Malik, who is infamous for making notorious statements on important issues of national importance in the past, was referring to a formal appeal made to the Taliban, given the fact that he himself had previously denied reports of peace talks with the Taliban.

The only known offer of peace talks made by Rehman Malik to the Taliban on the eve of Eidul Azha [on November 6] was rejected by the TTP chief Hakeemullah Mehsud [on November 7], by vowing to carry out more terrorist attacks on the state of Pakistan.

The offer was made in accordance with a resolution adopted at an all-party conference [on October 18, 2011] in Islamabad, which had endorsed peace talks with the Taliban. But well informed circles in the ministry of interior claim that the TTP had actually set some pre-requisites to initiate peace negotiations with the government, most of which have been accepted in the aftermath of the November 26 Nato air attack on two Pakistani check posts on the Pak-Afghan border, killing 25 soldiers.
closing ranks :wink:
Pakistan reacted sharply to the deadly Nato strike by announcing
1) a review of the Pak-US ties,
2)suspending the Nato supply lines through from Pakistan to Afghanistan and
3) giving a 15-day deadline to the Americans to vacate the Shamsi Air Base in Balochistan.
All the three Pakistani actions correspond closely with the November 19 pre-conditions made public by a TTP spokesman for entering into peace negotiations with the federal government


The government circles in Islamabad say following the deaths of TTP founder Baitullah Mehsud and the chief of the group’s suicide bombing squad, Qari Hussain Mehsud, the Pakistani Taliban are comparatively weakened and are ready to hold peace talks with a government which is increasingly seen at odds with the United States eversince the May 2 Abbottabad.
Therefore, the rhythm of suicide attacks has changed dramatically in Pakistan, which has not experienced any major suicide attack after September 15 when a suicide bomber killed 46 people at a funeral in the Lower Dir district of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.

It was the first major anti-Shia attack in Afghanistan since the fall of the Afghan Taliban a decade ago, the responsibility for which has already been claimed by none other than a Pakistan-based sectarian-cum-terrorist organisation - the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi al Almi - an offshoot of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, an anti-Shia sectarian-cum-jehadi group founded in 1996.

A spokesman for LeJ (Almi) claimed the Kabul attack in a phone call to Radio Mashaal, a Pashto language radio station in Afghanistan. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi al Almi is reportedly based in Pakistan’s tribal areas on the Pak-Afghan border and is considered an even more radical offshoot of the LeJ. Both groups act as surrogates for al-Qaeda. In fact, the TTP has its roots in anti-Shia violence, with LeJ acting as the training ground for many of its anti-Shia leaders including Hakeemullah Mehsud and his first cousin Qari Hussain Mehsud.

According to the interior ministry circles in Islamabad, the LeJ consists of eight loosely coordinated cells spread across Pakistan with independent chiefs for each cell. Headed by a fugitive Punjabi Taliban leader, Maulana Abdul Khalil, who comes from the central Punjab, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi al-Almi is largely believed to be the international wing of the LeJ, which operates mostly in central parts of Punjab and the tribal areas on the Pak-Afghan border.

But many terrorism experts believe that there is hardly any difference between the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Al-Almi and the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi that used to maintain military training camps in Afghanistan under the Taliban regime led by Mullah Mohammad Omar.


so no more ieds for some more time till they fall out.
wonder how long can pure mix with impure.

Under pressure from all sides, Pakistani Taliban militant network splintering into factions
Battered by Pakistani military operations and U.S. drone strikes, the once-formidable Pakistani Taliban has splintered into more than 100 smaller factions, weakened and is running short of cash, according to security officials, analysts and tribesmen from the insurgent heartland.

Another factor is the divide-and-conquer strategy Pakistan’s military has long employed in its dealings with militants. Commanders have broken away from the TTP and set up their own factions, weakening the organization. Battles have broken out among the breakaway factions, and in one particularly remote tribal region the TTP was thrown out. These growing signs of fissures among the disparate groups that make up the Pakistani Taliban indicate the military’s strategy could be paying off.

That would explain the mixed signals this month coming out of the tribal belt, where some militants are mulling the idea of peace talks with the government, others are offering to stop fighting and still others are disavowing both peace and a cease-fire. It might also explain a steady decline in suicide attacks in Pakistan, according to the privately run Pak Institute for Peace Studies.
