2012 Forecast: Bang and Whimper

http://kunstler.com/blog/2012/01/2012-forecast-bang-and-whimper.html

Pakistan, with its inexhaustible supply of Islamic maniacs, could easily start a rumble with some crazy caper like the Mumbai hotel assault of two [sic] years ago, but this time India would answer with a heavy cudgel, perhaps even a nuclear sortie designed to neutralise Pakistan’s dangerous toys at a stroke. And that would be that. Like cleaning out an annoying neighborhood crack house. It’s not a very appetising scenario, but what else can you do about failed states with nuclear bombs?”

Most Balochi leaders in exile are based out of US/Europe, some of them are rich and in influential positions. They maybe arranging for the arms from foreign shores. There is a huge underground arms market in the US/Europe. So that may explain the source.

Boss, its old news. Baloch rebels are being trained in Oman and the MI6 are training them along with the US playing support role. Its not based on just the factthat equipment is european, in fact that adds further evidence that was given to me.

Look at which region the largest Baloch population in the world is for starters and have a look at the support they receive.

The 5-day visit of Gen. Kayani to PRC and the extensive discussions he is having with political leaders there followed by pious proclamations by the Chinese for the 'sovereignty and integrity' of Pakistan are indicators of something that is deeply troubling the PA. Kayani is trying to assure himself that the Chinese are with them unlike during Kargil. The PA does not want to take the Chinese support for granted.

India needs to be prepare itself to launch a disproportionately massive response to any Paki misadventure. If Kayani wants to go down in flames, IAF can send some of their stuff his way.

SS ji did PRC try to take advantage of Kargil by conducting raids to take over Daulet Beg Oldie?

Altair ji, TSPA is worried about ANA training and cold start.

The fact that Army chief petitions Supreme Court against the wishes of his Commander-in-chief, runs his own budget, conducts foreign policy trips to GCC, China and others to run a parallel govt shows the sort of eunuchs that are in nominal control of TSP. And it is with these eunuchs that MMS & Co are running the pappi-jappi show..

What a shame!

MMS knows that there is no central core for Pakistan. Every week He gets a call from Hillary or one of her secretaries that "India must do more to accommodate Pakistani concerns".
He gets confused sometimes that while Amreekis ask us to spread our legs,all the while they poke a steel rod deep inside the musharrafs of Pakis. It is a rather disconcerting for a Government clerk who got lucky.

Altair, I am not saying with any certainty or conviction that Kayani is itching to start a war with India and gone to PRC to gather support for that misadventure. There is something afoot and that is obvious. It could be external to Pakistan (involving India, US, Afghanistan or Iran) or internal to Pakistan (help for a triad, Balochistan, bad Taliban etc) or even political (early elections, memogate, lamppost for Zardari, Imran Khan or the return of Musharraf). The Pakistani plate is overflowing with so many things simultaneously. I am sure economic assistance would not have been discussed. Who cares about such trivial matters and that too by the PA ?

My allusion to Kargil was not in terms of a war. The Chinese did not even offer oral support during Kargil. So, Kayani now wants Chinese intervention and support in his action with regard to any of the above. He does not want to be isolated, perhaps. He would have rushed to an American General earlier but in the current situation that is impossible. The US has been replaced by PRC.

Lets not forget anther important point here. Pakis have received a lot of Miltary hardware in the last decade and this month they are receiving additional 18 Block 52 f-16 and last batch of Block 50 equivalent upgraded F-16's.

This means the PAF is a potent force unlike Kargil where they had to run away when an IAF BVR capable aircraft showed up.

The TSP Khakis could easily overestimate their force and make the subcontinent pay for it.

Not impossible, although I think it is unlikely. If it happens US and Chinese support will go to help the Paki army survive Indian retaliation. While that thought is not at all funny to me, what I do find amusing is the idea that both the US and China are now really desperate for the Shitistan army to merly survive - even without Indian attack, because they fear what they will have to face in Afghanistan and Xinjiang if the Pakhana army fails. Of course India has seen all that and more, and even if a failure of Paki army is not nice, we have faced similar situations in the past when the US and China were lustily cheering in the background.

But it also give the Pakhana army to give a new twist to an old game "Support the army or else we will fail" That is what Kiani will be telling the Chinoise now. And the Chinese will probably shiver a bit in their kimkoms and send more killer troops with red books to Xijniang.

Overestimation is their inborn characteristic and cannot be changed. It is etched in their genes. We have experienced that since 1947 and that is a perennial danger. With the nukes and now TNWs and Nasr, they may monumentally overestimate themselves.

Musharraf will be arrested on his arrival: FIA Prosecutor

By: Agencies | January 07, 2012, 4:35 pm


Posted in full. From the Nutty Testimonial.

Former President Pervez Musharraf will be arrested on his arrival in Pakistan as a court conducting the trial of those charged with involvement in the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto has declared him a fugitive, a prosecutor said on Saturday. Musharraf is a "proclaimed offender" or a fugitive who will be arrested on his arrival in the country, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali told reporters. There is no need of any warrant for this arrest, he said. The former military ruler, currently living in Dubai and London in self-exile, has said he plans to return to Pakistan on January 25 or 27 to lead his All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) party.


One more problem on the Porki plate. :((

That explains his 400%. Now, will he put his tail in his Musharraf, an action which has been validated by his flailing failure of his service record? or will he be a mard and face the moosic?

SS garu, IMO, the development can point towards two scenarios. Let me elaborate:

1. There seems to be a tug of war going on between the 3.5 freinds regarding the future course of action in Pakistan. Post memogate, the cards are on table and each side is busy marshalling resources in its favor. 10% went to Dubai and we've had noises from the Khan bahadur. IMO, the tussle between PA and GOPk is a non-starter - PA wins hands down. The problem comes when parties start throwing weight behind each of the contestants. This could be an attempt to get Chinese on his side of the rope.

2. USA - PA expects more hardline approach from DoD and subsequent spanner in baksheesh. Plus, chances are that end-game in Afg. is being planned which might put PA in backseat. This could be an attempt to both give feeler to Khan that PA will go to the other camp (if monies are not provided) and if end-game is not as per PA's wishes.

China is required to balance external actors/factors and not internal challenges.

My feeling is that some thing is up in Balochistan which is forcing TSPA to seek chinese help as a warning shot to those who are behind this move. Probably unkil and his munnas through some proxies. Hence loud statements about 'integritee of pakhanistan' etc. IMO onlee.

I suspect China has other concerns. Like I mentioned - there was news that les Chinoises (as they say in France when I teach them French) had killed 7 Uighur Islamists. That means that at least some of these guys are getting trained in the very areas that Pakhinis are unable to control even to asslick les Chinoises.

They slip into China via "Northern Areas" (formerly Kashmir) so the Pakhani army seems to be trying to create cooperation between a newly formed Northern Light Infantry (that was decimated in Kargil) and the PLA. I suspect the new NLI may well be Pakhana army regulars paid for by PLA to try and check infiltration and exfiltration of Uighurs.

If it is indeed Unkil that is needling TSP on Baluchistan, there is nothing much Chinese can do even if they want to waste their time on behalf of TSP/TSPA...it might even suit PRC because the remainder of TSP will be even more dependent on itself for succour against India..

Chinese position helps PA internally more than externally especially if the external factor is US.

1. Mango abduls really believe in the powers of the mythical dragon and the anti-american sentiment is very high. So internally, a chinese endorsement of PA, especially on the strategic asset issue will be crucial against a US backed Dus-Percenti.
2. Wrt US, I doubt the value to the Chinese endorsement. US knows that the mythical dragon is well mythical. In 1971, the chinese did not help the pakis, even with american encouragement. They will make all the right noises, may even supply weapons etc but will carefully keep out.

It can also be a GOP-PA rift getting wider. Zardari went to Dubai and Uncle gave statements that they would support the civilian govt, Kayani also wants to garner a strong support in his favor, so the china card. In case, he decides to hang Zardari, the word of support from the Chinese might dissuade Uncle from saving the civvi govt.

DocJi, I respectfully disagree with your analysis of Tharoor's piskological speech: viewtopic.php?p=1222914#p1222914

As PhillipJi pointed out, The terrorist generals in Rawalpindi will interpret that speech as hot air masquerading as some policy. Thats kind of diplomatic gobly gook, if thats what it was from Tharoor: couching a harsh message in soft tone would make sense and would be interpreted that way by TSPA only if India had the stick and wherewithal and state of mind to make TSPA pay. Otherwise, GHQ will view that as a climb-down by India in response to their nukes and pigLeTs while salvaging some H&D by making it out as though India is doing TSP a favor. TSP wants domination, not peaceful co-existence, and so these puny diplomatic pin-pricks by the likes of Tharoor will be laughed off in a heartbeat.

CRamS wrote:A Pakistani Spring? :-).

This article indicates a very important difference between the way Pakistanis have managed/mismanaged/deluded themselves versus how Indians react to the way India has been managed.

1. Pakistanis have always sought to impose a "positive image " of Pakistan on the most important media in the world - the American/western media

2. Pakis have failed because they have always used the status and behaviour of the RAPE elite to claim that all of Pakistan is being represented. Any Indian English speaking elite might feel envious of the way Pakistanis seem to glow and I have even seen such feelings expressed on the forum. But what is forgotten is that Pakis are usually referring to the top 1% of their population with no mention of the bottom 99%.

India on the other hand, with politicians elected from the bottom 90% of India is always talking about poverty/welfare/disease/inequity etc.

On a world level the news coming out of Pakistan and out of India reflects exactly this difference. But educated Indians need to understand this peculiar dynamic. In the long term India is doing the right thing even if it appears shameful now.

Posted below is a load of crap, but you gotta admire the way the minority elite in Pakistan control the information flow and image of their nation like a beautiful girl's head mounted on a lump of shit that Pakistan is.

http://latitude.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/ ... ni-spring/
KARACHI – While I was living in Washington on a research fellowship last year, Pakistanis often urged me to use the opportunity to promote Pakistan’s “positive aspects” to Americans. With the country steeped in ethnic and sectarian violence and regressing along the Human Development Index, this seemed like a challenge, and I’d struggle to muster compelling examples.

No longer. An exciting shift is now under way in Pakistan: the young are becoming politically engaged. In coffee shops, beauty salons and workplaces, instead of gossiping or deconstructing the latest televised drama, youngsters are arguing about the merits of various politicians. As a journalist, I can’t walk into a social gathering without getting grilled by my peers and their younger siblings about this policy or that. Older Pakistanis who have long bemoaned the apathy of the country’s educated, middle-class youth are sighing in relief at this newfound activism. As one elderly family friend put it, “Your lot has finally woken up.”

Unlike their counterparts in the Arab world, young Pakistanis are less inspired by revolutionary rhetoric than in producing results through the existing system. They are demanding issue-based politics and sound government policies to reduce corruption, create jobs and recalibrate U.S.-Pakistani relations. Blogging in the Express Tribune, Muhammad Bilal Lakhani describes the evolution, “A visible and growing number of young, educated professionals in Pakistan are channeling their energies to incrementally improve the system by engaging with the current set up.”

During the speech, a group of lawyers started booing the prime minister. They also raised Go Zardari Go slogans. The PM, however, continued: “We restored the Constitution, and we are its custodians for its protection.”

NIA busts major counterfeit currency racket with Pak links
Hyderabad, Jan 7, (PTI) :

National Investigation Agency today claimed to have busted a gang which circulated Pakistan-made fake Indian currency notes (FICN) worth crores of rupees, with the arrest of 11 persons.

Sleuths of NIA Hyderabad branch, along with BSF and West Bengal Police, arrested 23-year-old Morgen Hossain from Malda district of West Bengal today and seized FICN with a face value of Rs 27,000 from him.

The leads provided by Hossain, the alleged kingpin, led to raids in Chennai, Malda and Hyderabad and the arrest of ten gang-members. The gang acted at the behest of terrorist organisations who wanted to destabilise the country through the circulation of fake currency, said NIA's Additional Superintendent of Police, I R S Murthy, in a release here.

According to NIA, the arrested persons had a nation-wide network. Huge quantities of high-quality FICN, in denominations of Rs 1,000, Rs 500 and Rs 100, printed in Pakistan, were smuggled to Bangladesh by air route and then from Bangladesh, they were thrown into Indian villages along the border.

Hossain and his gang collected the counterfeit currency from the border area and distributed it to agents across the country by railway.

Young unemployed youth from Malda were sent as construction labourers to major cities and towns to distribute the fake notes.


The local agents, who exchanged the fake notes for genuine ones, took a 40 per cent cut. Rest of the money was remitted to Hossain's bank accounts, who in turn passed on some percentage to Bangladeshi and Pakistani suppliers, Murthy said.

The fake notes were exchanged in the ratio of 1:3 of the face value.

A maximum of Rs 49,000 were deposited in Hossain's accounts at a time, to avoid PAN and Income Tax-related paperwork and to circumvent scrutiny.

FICN worth crores of ruppes of face value was circulated by this 11-member gang in the last few months across India, Murthy said.

The NIA was trying to unearth the entire network and apprehend the remaining members of the network, Murthy added.

I find it remarkable that Shashi Tharoor, former diplomat turned Indian politician, could do some honest speaking *in pakistan*. The message is hard hitting and I can only imagine how a paki with a couple gray cells in his/her brain will squirm at the message.

There is no bhaichara no nothing (as in the case of...well..let's leave those out) but just... yes, we stand for peace and it will benefit us more than you. you guys are the evil who don't want peace but at the same time you are hurting yourself more than us.

Isn't it nice that on this count ST is aligned with BRF. Peace will benefit both but more so India, and status quo will hurt both more so India (while admitting pakis are going beyond repair). We all know which option pukis will choose as SSji more recently put it with "cut nose/spite face' analogy. Why not pronouce this so called "asuric" approach loudly in pukistan?

Further, I am sure if he wants to deliver a speach even harder at appropriate time it would take no time and effort to deliver a message on the lines of "War is the only Hope" and then BRF would call ST for PM :D

NIA "claimed to have bust"? What should NIA do more to earn the trust of PTI?

This element of doubt about the accuracy of NIA's action is a subjective injection by the PTI/reporter (dork?) and it appears deliberate. An accurate version would be "NIA said that it has busted ..." and this is news as is.
