Falijee, One of forum tenets is not to drive traffic to Baki sites.(Reduces internet traffic and based on hearsay keeps your computer safe from viruses).
So if you find something interesting post it with a link(avoids copy right issues)

Haram Link > Paki threatning Chotta Fourfather UAE
The Gargash guff
Sissy Choudhry ACM
Those who wish to discount Iran, including the good Dr Gargash, do so at their own peril. And the Saudis, past masters at power-games in the Middle East, are sensible enough to know the underlying implications of an imminent rapprochement between the US and Iran. What the Iranians might barter with the Americans in terms of their nearness to a weaponised nuclear status will be regained in the American nod on Iran’s increased geopolitical influence in the larger Middle East. Consider how both the Iranians and the Americans have made space for each other against their common enemy, the IS, in a parallel war feeding in the gains to the other.Past June 30, when the deal between the two gets formalised, note how economic cooperation between the west and Iran opens up even newer avenues of a major geopolitical shift in the Middle East. The Saudis are right to fear such a shift, though to assume that the Americans will do so at the cost of the Saudis will be equally fallacious. The solution to the Saudi discomfort is surely not in attacking Yemen, but in resolving Yemen through an internal dialogue process that the Saudis will be well-advised to convene, oversee and support to keep Yemen from becoming another field of contention.
When Egypt proposed to form a 40,000 strong Arab army to support Saudi Arabia it was a typical tactic to defer immediacy of direct Egyptian involvement in the Yemen war. Na nou munn tel ho ga, na radha nache gi. :shock: Similarly, both Pakistan and Turkey have chosen diplomacy and dialogue over war to resolve the crisis in Yemen. Oman, a member of the GCC, abuts Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and most prudently has eschewed any direct role in the ongoing war. And as a final test to the Gargash postulation of consequences: ever imagined if the Pakistanis in Bahrain were to be removed in a single stroke? The entire structure of the ruling setup can come crashing down. The reality is so stark and so real, Dr Gargash. It is time to smell some strong Gahwa.Rather than explain Pakistan’s position in the media, the prime minister would be better advised to send a delegation to Riyadh, Doha and the UAE for some real diplomacy. Otherwise, minor ministers of some nations begin to acquire outsized proportions

KSA is not going to break off its sponsorship of TSP. KSA has paid for and bought the nukes of TSP. This is to ensure that if Iran gets nukes, KSA will have them too and Iran cannot dominate the Arabs. On the other hand, given how TFTAs got brownpants so quickly, KSA will wonder if TSP will come good on its nuclear assurance if Iran were to test or deploy a nuke. So I predict 3 things will happen:

1) KSA will squeeze TSP testimonials, so TSP "military advisors" and "retired rogue TFTAs who are mujahideen" (read Norther Flight Infantry on vacation and double pay) will fight in Yemen. This is easy to arrange as TFTAs currently go on a rotation to terror orgs and are actively encouraged by the afsaar (there was a funny story about a low-level TFTA abdul being the "commander" in a terror org of a higher level TFTA abdul and they had some awkward time after they came back and joined the TFTAs).

2) KSA will squeeze TSP testimonials to station nukes in KSA. With KSA abduls trained in servicing and delivery of the nukes. Expect ex-SPD chiefs of TSP to go do a stint in KSA.

3) KSA will start its own nuke program.

NEW DELHI: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to Indian diaspora at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, the Canadian PM Stephen Harper on Thursday announced that Indians will be given visa on arrival in Canada. Addressing Indian community, Harper said, "India and Canada's friendship is a friendship we truly value." He said that Indian community in Canada has grown in size and so has its contribution to economic strength and culture. "His (PM Modi) first visit has been historic, he is striving to make India a vishwa-guru," Harper said. Speaking at the same event, PM Narendra Modi thanked Canada and PM Harper for the excitement with which the nation expressed its love. "I say proudly that Canada is that nation which has been the partner country of Gujarat since 2003," PM Modi said.

Apparently la-whore has a nice mall now
http://tribune.com.pk/story/870552/buil ... l-culture/

Recently, Dupak Developers, a group involved in real estate, shopping mall and retail development, has completed Lahore’s biggest mall yet, The Fortress Square.

The mall provides every facility that people expect, from different retail brands to cinemas and food courts under one roof
. The demand is not one-sided as brands are also looking for more and more malls to showcase their high-end products.


The interesting part is:

The ideal location of the mall – in Lahore Cantonment and under Army supervision – is preferred by the shoppers as it provides a more ‘peaceful’ environment.


If India-Pak war ever comes to who can build and run a nice mall, Indian army is sure to get routed. :mrgreen:

#2 is more likely. #3 would be wishful thinking given the current state of R&D sophistication in KSA. Even if blueprints are provided and lot of technical help is provided, some minimal industry - scientific ecosystem is needed for safe nuke program. I don't think KSA has it and that would leave them at the mercy of Pukis.

Now all Iran has to do is as part of its official second strike policy, confirm that it would attack the nuclear-allies of its aggressor with disproportionate force and publicly identify Pukis as a nuclear ally of KSA. That will create more brown-shalwars in Pukiland and they may choose to take the money from KSA and run!

Here is what happened

Officer beats man, his sister after accident

An accident that led to a scuffle between an officer of an important government department and a man and his sister, riding a motorcycle, enraged the people who gathered there, blocked the road and raised slogans against the officer for beating the two with a belt on the Range Road here on Wednesday. In the heart of Pakjab

According to eye-witnesses a man, Ramiz Khan, and his sister suddenly came out of a street and banged into a car driven by an officer, Mohsin. The officer came out of his car and exchanged hot words with Ramiz and then beat him with his belt.

When Ramiz’s sister came to his rescue, the officer started beating her too and dragged her on the road and tore her clothes.This situation enraged the people who gathered there and tried to save the two. The officer immediately got into the car and locked the doors.

Over 200 enraged people surrounded his car and broke its windows to drag him out.Meanwhile, the officer’s colleagues also arrived there to save him. However, the people kept surrounding the car.

CPO Israr Ahmad Abbasi arrived there. The officer came out of his car with great difficulty when the mob was pushed back.According to the SHO Race Course the numbers given by Ramiz and his sister were closed and the address was also incorrect


This is a man who will 'lead' his troops into battle.
Paki Twitterati are doubly angry that their MSM hasn't covered it at all. There's a massive outrage against the Army too.

This kind of beating, even murder, is not at all uncommon in Pakiland.

I know a Pak who has beaten an auto-rickshaw driver to death with a plastic pipe because he dared to overtake him. Other than that, he's a nice family man, and looks a bit like a young VS Naipaul. Oh, and obviously zero repercussions.

I'm not saying he's a friend, just a semi-RAPE jackass I happened to encounter a couple of times. The twat was proud of it, and his friends were saying that the flexible PVC pipe is the best for what Tejpal would call a proper lacerating because it takes the skin off almost better than anything else out there. Maybe I should put the two together. This way instead of Tejpal lacerating his soul, this fellow can lacerate his oiseaule.

= If Pakistan instigates Kabul against India it will backfire
QUOTE: Afghanistan's growing political and security stability effectively negates Pakistan's efforts to exploit the situation in that country, former Indian ambassador to Afghanistan Rakesh Sood told Rediff.com in Washington, DC.

QUOTE:"If Pakistan tries to exploit such a situation," he warned, "it would backfire very strongly (on Islamabad)."

IMHO, India should promote this fact in pakistan that any military Paki help to Arabs equals to helping Arab Israeli alliance against Iran. Paki army will be part of (NSN/YSN)Yahoodi, Saudi, Nassara conspiracy against beeratherly Muslim nation Iran.

Some of the horror story of Bangladeshi Genocide had gory details like this. I tried to believe it was not true, but apparently it looks like such things are common knowledge to average Bakistani.

1. Regarding AIIB, India is a founding member. Per a news-item, AIIB may make it possible for South Korea to participate in a sea-wall/sea reclamation project in Gujarat because of more favorable financing.

2. Regarding the Old Silk Road, Indian coverage has been about how India is setting up the "Cotton Route" and Project Mausam to revive the ancient trade routes that India used to export along, in the Indian Ocean.

3. Regarding Pakistan - there are lots of MoUs, we need to see if they get converted into actual projects on the ground. E.g., the very first one - the Port Qasim Thermal Power Plant - the ground-breaking was in May 2014; but the project contractor was announced only last week. The Gaddani power project listed below was announced, but then put on hold because of, per Nawaz Sharif, "changed Chinese priorities".

Anyway, here is the list to add to, and to follow:

1. Port Qasim Thermal Power Plant.
from:
http://pk.chineseembassy.org/eng/zbgx/t1155081.htm

2. Land acquisition and shifting of utilities for the Karachi-Lahore motorway.
3. Construction of the Lahore-Abdul Hakim-Khanewal motorway section.
4. Construction of the Multan-Sukkur motorway section.
5. Construction of the Raikot-Havelian-Islamabad motorway section.

Washington Post reports that in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mohammadden Terrorists target fellow Abrahamic Christist Missionary by name of Debra Lobo who works as a Vice Principal of a Dental College in Karachi:

American wounded in Pakistan in apparent terrorist shooting, police say

Separately Reuters reports that the Mohammadden Terrorists left behind a pamphlet in English at the crime scene saying,:

"Oh crusaders, we are the lions of Dualat al Islamia, the falcons of the caliph. Today we killed this Kansas lady Lobo, we shall lie and wait and ambush you and kill you wherever you may be and confined and besiege you in America and then god willing ... we will burn American.":

Read it all in Reuters from here:

News from Heeramandistan :

Perhaps the Houbaras would approve
Ever since the price of oil quadrupled in 1973 and the Gulf construction and economic boom started, Dubai has been an important destination of dancers and starlets, or let’s call them artistes, associated with Lahore’s ‘pleasure district’, Heera Mandi.

Suppose Dubai were to become really angry – which, incidentally, is unlikely to happen – and a squeeze were put on this Heera Mandi traffic, wouldn’t that work to the general benefit of the situation in Lahore, and indeed other cities, by leading to a downward trend in the going rate of these timeless pursuits?

Heera Mandi artistes will continue to find a safe haven in Dubai.

Sikhs have been aat the receiving end of Pakis for some time, yet many of them in US, Canada and UK happily ignore and show thier love for Pakis and then back stabbed, completely forgetting the sacrifices of Sikh gurus and Kings.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will launch energy and infrastructure projects worth $46 billion on a visit to Pakistan next week as China cements links with its old ally and generates opportunities for firms hit by slack growth at home.

Also being finalised is a long-discussed plan to sell Pakistan eight Chinese submarines. The deal, worth between $4 billion and $5 billion, according to media reports, may be among those signed on the trip.

Xi will visit next Monday and Tuesday, Pakistan's foreign ministry said.

Commercial and defense ties are drawing together the two countries, which share a remote border and long-standing mistrust of their increasingly powerful neighbor, India, and many Western nations.

"China treats us as a friend, an ally, a partner and above all an equal - not how the Americans and others do," said Mushahid Hussain Sayed, chairman of the Pakistan parliament's defense committee.

^^^Xinhua announcement.
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2015- ... 160189.htm

BEIJING, April 17 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit Pakistan and attend meetings in Indonesia next week, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson announced on Friday morning.

The president will pay a state visit to Pakistan from Monday to Tuesday at the invitation of Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, spokesperson Lu Kang said in a statement.

At the invitation of Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Xi will attend the Asian-African Summit as well as activities commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Bandung Conference from Tuesday to Friday in Indonesia.

Xi's two-day state visit to Pakistan will be Xi's first trip to the South Asian country since he assumed the presidency in 2013.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the visit would provide a powerful impetus to build on the China-Pakistan friendship and deepen comprehensive collaboration.

Sharif said as 2015 was the Pakistan-China Year of Friendly Exchanges, Xi's visit would lift the strategic cooperative partnership to a new high.

"The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor [CPEC] will be high on the agenda," former Chinese ambassador to Pakistan Zhou Gang said.

The CPEC, a flagship project to strengthen China's connectivity with neighboring countries, was proposed during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's visit to Pakistan in May 2013.

The planned corridor will connect Kashgar in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region with Gwadar Port in Pakistan. A project outline was signed in Beijing last November.

During Xi's visit to Islamabad, China and Pakistan will sign deals on energy, infrastructure to education and culture, Pakistan Ambassador to China Masood Khalid said.


The Chinese Foreign Ministry announcement is just a couple of sentences:

The corruption of power

QUOTE:Now, in the first few years of Pakistan’s independence, there were few major examples of corruption at the political level. :shock:

QUOTE:While earlier political regimes had been simply too weak or unimportant to challenge their bureaucratic peers’ pocket-filling sprees, the Bhutto government was the first really effective political government in this country’s tragic history. Yet, surprisingly, there have been very few instances of the finger of corruption being credibly pointed at any important member of the federal government or parliament of those days. :shock:

After much hand wringing and soul searching, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has decided to abandon “neutrality” in the civil war in Yemen as originally resolved by a consensus in Parliament. The PM’s new formulation clearly says that the government of Manzur Hadi in Yemen was legitimate and the Houthis’ attempt to seize power is illegitimate.


So next time there is a military coup in Pakistan, or we feel that our horse, or let's say, gaddha, has not won the elections in Pakistan, we should simply attack Pakistan and make smithereens out of it! Bunderphool!

Did this pig really die? Is this some kind of mix up?
ISIS Pakistan Leader Killed: Hafiz Muhammad Saeed Dies From Own Islamic State Bomb Explosion
The leader of the Islamic State group's faction in Pakistan was killed Thursday along with two other people when an explosive device he was handling detonated unexpectedly, multiple news reports said. The reports vary on the method in which Hafiz Muhammad Saeed died in the Pakistani region of Toor Dara in Tirah Valley: The bomb either exploded during the assembly process or while he was helping to plant it near the side of a road, the Express Tribune reported.

He was also the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a group of Pakistani fighters accused of playing a major role in the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, India.
