Secret talks between General Pervez Musharraf and former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto have entered the final phase.

According to sources privy to President House, and the PPP Chairperson, Benazir Bhutto, talks are almost “ successful”, However there are only two minor hitches. First Benazir Bhutto wants General Musharraf o shed his uniform before the presidential elections, while General Musharraf wants to do that after getting re-elected. Second Benazir demands the withdrawal of all the corruption cases against her immediately and unconditionally, while the government is reluctant to do that”, the source said.

The deal revolves around four major points.

First, Musharraf will lay off his military uniform and get elected as a civilian president by the current assemblies with the help of ruling PML (Q), and the PPP. Second, all the corruption cases against Benazir Bhutto will be withdrawn, third, the general elections will be held under a neutral caretaker government, and fourth, the current local bodies government will be dissolved before the elections.

“ The two sides have almost agreed on the four points, however there is still difference of opinion on the implementation”, a source said.

“ General Musharraf is not ready yet to withdraw the corruption cases against Benazir immediately. He has proposed to her to return, participate in the elections, and in the meantime the government will gradually withdraw the cases against her”, he maintained.

According to power sharing formula, the source claims, an amendment will be made in the constitution paving the way for Ms Bhutto to become the prime minister for the third time.

After elections, the PPP will make governments in center, and Sindh province, while PML(Q) will make governments in Punjab and Balochistan provinces, whereas whoever gets majority in north west frontier province, it will be given the chance to form government there.

On the other hand, the ruling PML(Q) and PPP leaders appear to be stunned over the secret talks as General Musharraf and Ms Bhutto did not take them into confidence about the deal.

Here are some questions
1) What’s your opinion about deal? Will it work?
2) Will Benazir be able to tackle the simmering crises in the country?
3) Is America pressurizing Musharraf and Benazir for deal? If yes why?
4) Where will Benazir and Musharraf morally stand after deal as they have hurled serious allegations ranging from corruption to violation of constitution against each other.
5) Balochistan and the NWFP the provinces are most violence-hit provinces, where the PPP has no say. How will Benazir tackle the situation there?

Musharraf and BB deal

Musharraf had made a deal with MMA and got vote to be president in uniform. Now it is turn of BB. She may be a great politician but let us wait and see politics of Musharraf.
Muhammad Riaz

Muhammad Riaz, Pakistan - 02 August, 2007

It is about compromise deal


President Musharraf and BB are buttressing each other to pacify the explosive situation the country is in right now.This explosive situation is not the intentional making of Musharraf nor BB nor Nawaz Sharif nor any body else.

The problems are due to the most important geo strategy of Pakistan and the governance stress this geo strategy brings with it. Already Pakistan's governance is described as the toughest job on earth.

You have all the mighty nations contesting their future dominence,energy security,future fate of mankind and the positioning for influence in their political interests.

Pakistan appears to be the chess board for all to play the game of global domunence, whereas Paks most marshal tribal and NWFP people have fiercely maintained their independence from foreign influence for thousands of years.Even Alexander the Great had said about the tribals as such:

"THIS IS THE TOUGHEST NUT THAT HE JUST COULD'NT CRACK"

AFTER THAT CHENGEZ, TAMERLANE, THE BRITISH AND THE RUSSIANS WENT THROUGH SIMILAR FATE AT THE HANDS OF PASHTOONS"

THESE PEOPLE MADE AMERICA THE SOLE SUPER POWERS AND WERE AMERICA'S ALLIES ONCE.

PAKISTAN HAS LOST OVER 800 MILITARY MEN JUST TO ONLY PACIFY THE PEOPLE.

FRANKLY SPEAKING, PAKISTAN HAS BEEN TORN BY THE FORCES OF THE MIGHTIEST AND THE INTERNALLY INTERPOSING FIERCE PEOPLE OF TRIBALS AND NWFP TO THE EXTENT THAT THE NATION'S INTEGRITY APPEARS TO BE AT STAKE IF THINGS ARE LET GO WITHOUT PACIFICATION AND BUTTRESSING BETWEEN THE MIGHTY FRIENDS LIKE US-NATO AND OUR INTERNAL FIERCEST MARSHAL RACES, WHO WOULD SHUN ANY EXTERNAL INTERACTIONS THAT ARE LATELY BECOMING SERIOUSLY BLOODY.

DICK CHENNY'S STATEMENT LAST NIGHT ABOUT NOT PUSHING THE PAKS TOO HARD BY CONSTRAINING AND CONSTRICTING ANY TEMPT OF CROSS BORDER CHASE. SUCH STATEMENT FROM A HAWK LIKE DICK CHENNY WILL CONTRIBUTE MUCH TOWARDS PEACE AND INTEGRITY OF PAKISTAN.

PEACE IN PAKISTAN AND INTEGRITY OF THE NATION ARE VERY VITAL NOT ONLY FOR THE SURVIVAL OF PAKISTAN, BUT ALSO FOR THE COUNTRIES AROUND AND FOR GLOBAL POWERS WHO HAVE IMPORTANT STAKES IN THEIR OWN SURVIVAL, ENERGY SECURITY AND THEIR VERY PRESENCE IN THE WORLD'S MOST DESIRED AND CONTESTED SPOT THAT IS PAKISTAN.ANY HURTING OF PAKISTAN, INTENTIONAL OR ACCIDENTAL WILL HAVE VERY DISASTROUS EFFECTS ON THE ENTIRE WORLD.DICK CHENNY'S STATEMENT LAST NIGHT IS IN EFFECT CONFIRMAITION OF US REALIZING THAT THINGS IN AND AROUND PAKISTAN ARE BEYOND THE GRIP AND GRAPS OF PAKS IF THE COUNTRY IS PUSHED TOO HARD.

ACTUALLY , THERE IS TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF CREDIT GOING TOWARDS PAK MILITARY AND MUSHARRAF THAT THEY HAVE KEPT THE COUNTRY RELATIVELY PACIFIED COMPARED TO THE VERY EXPLOSIVE GEO STRATEGY OF THE COUNTRY.

CHARTER OF DEMOCRACY WAS LIKE CAKE WALKING. BUT THE EXPLOSIVE GEO STRATEGY DEMANDS NAWAZ AND BB ALSO LENDING HELPING HANDS TO PAK MILITARY AND MUSHARRAF WHILE THEY TRY TO PACIFY THE TRIBALS AND OTHER MARSHAL PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN.

HERE ARE MY ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS:
1)What’s your opinion about deal? Will it work?

Answer: I would call it a compromised buttressing under the most stressed geo strategy of the country. Nawaz and BB can help now while all political contestants peacefully work on building the depth of public support for the day of decisive balloting that is coming for the people of Pakistan to decide as to who they want to govern the nation under peoples ballot proven wishes in the forth coming elections.

2)Will Benazir be able to tackle the simmering crises in the country?

Answer:
Nawaz Sharif and BB are the only politicians who had depth of public support.Nawaz is a cool minded person and he had the latest ballot proven depth of public support. Whoever is chosen by the Pak people will have the challenge of pacifying the circumstances of tough days as they will have to break the cycle of tough circumstances as the cycle right now is:

"When tough gets going, the going gets tough and when going gets tough, the tough gets going."

And compromised kindness to people and the friendly attitude with US-NATO at the same time will be the required wisdome.

3)Is America pressurizing Musharraf and Benazir fordeal? If yes why?

Answer:Pressure or no pressure,the deal is the need given the very tough geo strategy of Pakistan.

4)Where will Benazir and Musharraf morally standafter deal as they have hurled serious allegationsranging from corruption to violation of constitutionagainst each other. ?

Answer:
You cannot stay rigid and non flexamatic when the nation is sandwiched by dangers due to all powers finding ways to influence the world through Pak geo strategy.Every body has to give and take and forgive for nation's sake.I think they can make amends and do not repeat the past mistakes.

5) Balochistan and the NWFP the provinces are mostviolence-hit provinces, where the PPP has no say. Howwill Benazir tackle the situation there?

Answer:

I think BB and Nawaz will have to come to terms with religious parties like MMA.

people concern

it is understood by reading the subject,that prior interst of bibi is to get rid of the cases and defreaze her accounts and surely this is personal interest merely. musharraf wants to get elected in uniform forget about the intrest of people this is a game and both of them are not even thinking of poor man in the country very shamfull situation.

Pervez Musharraf Written Off by Bush Regime. July 25, 2007. Part II

Iraq situation is as very bad for US occupation after four years with no hope of any improvements in near future. Bush regime blame their failures on Syria, Iran and now Saudi Arabia for their failed policy of invasion and Pakistan for Afghanistan failure. It is really hard to believe that the whole Bush regime consists of idiots who did not know the consequences of Iraq and Afghanistan invasion. The majority of people know that Bush is an idiot brain damage due to drug and alcohol abuse in his earlier life but it is really hard to believe that his whole cabinet did not analyze the consequences of removing Saddam Hussein and Afghanistan invasion. What is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan is exactly according to my analysis before war. The majority of my American friends were happy full of pride with easy victory when Taliban disappeared leaving Kabul open for Northern Alliance and US troops. When I told them that this is not victory and end of war but it is just beginning of war they all looked at me like someone complete crazy. The Americans friends were quick to celebrate the Iraq victory as well when they captured Baghdad without any resistance and again when I told them that this is just the beginning of long war they thought I have completely lost my mind.

Bush job approval rating that time was in high seventies and the war support was equally high over seventy percent. It took some months for Iraqi resistance to organize and start their fighting against US occupation which were called by Bush, Dick and Rumsfeld as dead enders, terrorists, Saddam Hussein Bathists, people who hate freedom and democracy and majority of Americans believed and supported government.

Afghanistan went into background with main stream media focus on Iraq. The other reason for Afghanistan going into background was that Taliban did not immediately get organized which according to me was because they were not in hurry and don’t wanted to start their resistance without complete planning and organization. It look like they have done their home work and gaining strength in Afghanistan with support from North Western Frontier Province. Bush blame this on Pakistan and Pervez Musharraf, putting pressure on his government “to do more” in his “war on terror” which is necessary for the security of US. Bush retard do not realize that Pervez Musharraf can’t do anything more what he has already done without risking the security of his own country. Pervez Musharraf come in power with very popular public support and he has lost all his support fighting Bush “war on terror” bombing and killing civilians in North WesternFrontier Province. Pervez Musharraf meeting with yesterday with Benazir Bhutto in Dubai look like Bush regime new strategy to bring her back as Prime Minister and announce new elections date to calm down public anger and opposition against government. Benazir Bhutto very corrupt politician love power and will do anything to keep her in power even if she had to kill hundreds of thousands people. The only problem is that she can’t aggressively pursue Bush policies with majority of public opposition, growing anti Military sentiments in Pakistan. Pakistan Military will not agree to take any Military action for the fear of losing its respect and credibility. Bush regime will have hard time understanding this and they might make one more stupid mistake of crossing Pakistan border which will open new front for US troops.

Iraq failures are blamed on Iran, Syria and now Saudi Arabia. Bush stupid invasion and overthrowing Saddam Hussein government has changed power in favor of Iran which Sunni Arab government see as growing threat for for their governments. Iran has Syrian Shiite government support and in Lebanon have the backing of Hezbollah. Iraq puppet Nuri Al Maliki government has close relations with Iranian which will further strengthen after US troops withdrawal. Saudi Royal family fear that Iran Iraq might start revolution movement in their country, so they actually are trying to protect their own interests with financing Iraqi Sunni Resistance to fight against Nuri Al Maliki Shiite government.

The end game is near which will not be pretty for US and its superpower image.

It is in the best interest of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf tell his American allies to shut up and adopt the policy of reconciliation in NWFP. Democratic Congress has already tied Pakistan financial aid to progress with "war on terror" results which means they want to see plenty of dead bodies for their money. Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama if get elected will as as disastrous as Bush who will not hesitate to cross into Pakistan territory just to prove that Democrats are as tough as Republican fighting the Islamic "terrorists".



QB, Pakistan - 02 August, 2007

Pervez Musharraf is not the problem. It isUS Democracy in Disarray. Conclusion.

Barak Obama the intelligent bright excellent speaker Senator become the typical corrupt politician who want to win Democratic Presidential nomination that he is promising to do what will be disaster for US troops in Afghanistan. He is intelligent and he know that any air strike or crossing Pakistan North Frontier Province will open the new front line which will be more bloody and dangerous than Iraq. Pervez Musharraf will have no other choice other than having direct military confrontation and don’t forget the Islamic Militants who are anxiously waiting for US troops to cross borders. These Islamic Militants will be very happy if Barak Obama do this stupid mistake.

Hilary Clinton has the same exactly the same opinion as Barak Obama and Bush on attacking Pakistan for their America favorite “war on terror”.

There are plenty of Democrats and Republicans hopeful for 2008 Presidential race but unfortunately they all are typical corrupt bunch of politicians. Hilary Clinton will not talk to Cuban leaders because she did not like the form of government, Hilary Clinton will not talk to Hugo Chavez because he speaks against the wrong policies of US government, Hilary Clinton will not talk to Syria because she don’t want to offend Israel (in US you can criticize God, make fun of Jesus but are not to speak a bad word about Israel aggressive policies. Hilary Clinton might be feeling left behind on US security with Barak Obama stance on Pakistan so she might come up with similar policy.

John McCain is very phony character who doesn’t look real, always have the feeling that whatever he is saying is for the camera and the voters. Giuliani is not a honest person another corrupt politician favor wars. Romney is trying to be in favor of both sides of all issues.

The only Presidential candidate who is honest speaking truth a real person is Dennis Kucinich. Dennis Kucinich is the only candidate who will pursue diplomacy instead of aggressive invasion and this is the only policy which will decrease “terrorism”. Barak Obama policy will result in increase terrorism, give more popularity to Al Qaida and Osama Bin Laden. He actually is Naive not ready for the job of President of USA.

Just watched Wolf Blitzer Situation Room and he is very much excited and enthusiastic on US Military action against Pakistan like he was for Iraq invasion.

The Presidential hopefuls for 2008 are so stupid that they don't know that it is their policies are resulting in escalation of terrorism. The only way to eliminate terrorism will be when the US leadership ready to listen and change their policies of aggression and oppression in the name of "DEMOCRACY".

Two itching Palms!

Is this an agreement between Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. I scratch your back and you grease my palm.

Khalid Rahim, Canada - 03 August, 2007

Musharraf has released the "genie" free.

The blockbuster "genie" overlooking the judiciary in the apex court is flexing its mussles. BB and Musharraf are both robber barons. BB is already suffering from the pangs of self exile and uncertainties surrounding her. It is the President, who is kept under the watchful eye of the superior judiciary. The fight for democracy has begun. Many heads are expected to roll.

Sher Mohammad, Pakistan - 03 August, 2007

Pervez Musharraf Written Off by Bush regime. July 25, 2007. Part I.

My advice for Pervez Musharraf was to use the same sentence when talking to Bush regime and British Empire Leaders and trust me this is the easiest way of making Americans understand the true sentiment. The words were quite often used by Bush and other politicians on compaign trail without knowing their microphones are still on. This is also reported that Bush is the most foul mouthed US President off the camara and microphone. Also Paktribune note and understand that I am doing you favor by posting reponse to your questions not the other way around. This is very short edited version of my original Part I.

There are plenty of posts related to Pervez Musharraf and Pakistan since Lal Masjid operation because the situation is becoming more interesting with US threatening to air strike Al Qaida with military operations inside North Frontier Region. The other reason is the news from Iraq and Afghanistan are what we are watching and reading from last five years. Bomb explosions, sectarian violence, blowing up the US military Humvee. Bush criminal invasion has deprived Iraqis all sort of happiness joy peace stability that they even can't celebrate the victory of their soccer team wihout getting blown up by bombs and this latest bombing was very sad to watch. Afghanistan remains unstable violence place after five years of US occupation. The situation which is developing with Pakistan is very interesting and dangerous for US troops in Afghanistan which will prove to be disaster again, the stupidity of Bush policy backed up by war mongers politicians like McCain Giuliani Romney ofcourse with the support of Republican Senators and House Representatives including blood thirsty maniac Joe Lieberman. Barak Obama and Hilary Clinton joined Bush madness of invasion.

According to the latest news Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister issued statement that no foreign troops have the right to cross Pakistan border. Pakistan security forces are fully capable of taking action against Islamic Militants in North Frontier Region which they have done in the past and doing so after recent outburst of violence in the region. Pervez Musharraf has also pointed out that Pakistan has lost more soldiers than US fighting “war on terror”. He is speaking the truth when compared with US deaths in Afghanistan with Pakistan soldiers deaths in North Frontier Province.This statement is very lame which will not help Pervez Musharraf image as strong leader of Pakistan but strengthen the image of being US puppet.

Pervez Musharraf, if wanted to remain in power, must send strong message that “Pakistan Military will defend its sovereignty against any foreign troops crossing its borders”.

This all situation is pointing out that Bush regime has written off Pervez Musharraf and start looking at some other alternatives leader to fight their “war on terror”. The news also reported that Pervez Musharraf is desperately trying to make contact with Bush which is declined by the White House, is another evidence of relations are getting cold.. There aren’t many available option available if Perez Musharraf lose power. The only choice US has is Benazir Bhutto, the daughter of Zulifiqar Ali Bhutto, the guy who played major part breaking East Pakistan to become the Prime Minister of West Pakistan. The problem is that Benazir can’t pursue Bush “war on terror” which is the main reason for Pervez Musharraf unpopularity and could become his downfall. The other option is replacing Pervez Musharraf with some other General will not work because Pakistan Military will lose all its support and respect creating divisions within Military.

Pervez Musharraf committed so stupid mistakes which could have been avoided so easily, extending his unconditional support to Bush without looking at what US do to its friends and allies when they are no good for their agendas, they get murdered recent example is Saddam Hussein. Pervez Musharraf might get murdered by CIA blaming it on Taliban and Al Qaida. The losers will be people of Pakistan with some corrupt politician taking control of government. The economic progress which the country made during Pervez Musharraf rule will be stopped, poverty level will rise, the good news will be corrupt politicians opening new foreign bank accounts, buying properties in Europe and US, happy to be back in business after seven years.

QB, Pakistan - 03 August, 2007

Deal of BB and Musharaf

Deal between the two is only for their personal interests, not for the people of pakistan, nor for the country. If Musharaf needed to make a deal he should have made a deal with MMA which is a majority party in Balochistan and Frontier provinces. That would have helped Musharaf to bring pease to two restive provinces. Offcourse he has lost his credibility with his previous deal with the MMA.But Musharaf needed to please US and has to fight their "war on Terror "and wants to stay in power. He is makign desperate moves, as we know power corrupts,he can't let the power go now, to stay as general and president.He decided to make a deal with so called moderates, who has still pending corruption cases against her.

To your Questions now.

1) What’s your opinion about deal? Will it work?
It may work for the two individuals and US but not for the the country or the people of Pakistan.

2) Will Benazir be able to tackle the simmering crises in the country?
BB will face same crises as Musharaf plus more because she is rejected twice and she has curruption charges against her would loose credibilty soon.
4) Where will Benazir and Musharraf morally stand after deal as they have hurled serious allegations ranging from corruption to violation of constitution against each other.
I hope not long.soon or later they will blame each others.

) Balochistan and the NWFP the provinces are most violence-hit provinces, where the PPP has no say. How will Benazir tackle the situation there?

BB will not be able to do more than Musharaf in Frontier and Balochistan. She may even bring even more trouble adding 3rd province Sindh to secterian and political violence...with MQM.

muhammad amin, Canada - 08 August, 2007

The Deal

Its a great shame that two corrupt politicians are trying to get together for their own benefit. Bibi Bhutto wants the power so she can take care of her own and general does not want to give up the uniform because he knows that this shabby matvh is not going to work out and he is afraid that if some one else was the general, he might take over just like Musharaf him self did and put musharaf and bibi Bhutto in jail. Now question arises what to do.
This become the responsiblity of educated people of Pakistan to get out and vote their concious. If public does not think that this combination is going to work then defeat both of them bring in a neutral person. A person who has the qualifications to take Pakistan ahead not back ward to old ages. People of Pakistan need to understand that their future and their kids future is hanging in the middle.With all the violence in Pakistan where they are killing their own you need to have a stern Prime minister who can rule with stick.President in Pakistan is only a rubber stamp nothing more. Who ever gets elected if there are elections needs to revive the education system in Pakistan, get rid of all religious madrasa's where nothing but hate is taught. Blaming United states or United Kingdom is not going to solve Pakistans internal problems. People of Pakistan need to wake up and look at the neighbour India and how successfu lndia is. Indians are well respected in the world because they tolrate .

Vinod, United Kingdom - 08 August, 2007

Just Great Comments

I just love the comments what people have written and that is a fact,sad for the country I wish Pakistan to become a better country the Democratic ways and to love each other and not to kill each other,love yourself and you will love others too. dear friends

Akbar Kahn, Reunion - 08 August, 2007

Politically , Musharraf is a decomposing corpse.

Isolated , disgraced and very close to be abandoned by its chief ally , the all time unreliable and undependable United States of America , Musharraffs plight is no better than the plight of a rapid decomposing corpse. A striking demonstration of Allah's onslaught against those who sell their faith for cheap worldly gains.

He should have resigned the day Iftekhar Chaudary was reinstated instead of shamelessly seeking refuge for survival behind a woman whose greed for power did not make her flinch even for a second to have her own brother brutally murdered and dumped
.She has now smelled blood and will be attempting to go for the kill !

America has blocked his emergency plans. The ongoing fall-out of the Lal Masjid saga and the NWFP and Balochistan unrest and now Iftekhar Chaudary has firmly head-locked him as he was head-locked by Musharraffs cronies by paving the way for Nawaz Sherrif to return .

They plot and Allah plots and the best of the plots are the plots plotted by Allah SWT . Subhan'Allah .







Ahsan Malik, Pakistan - 10 August, 2007

CANCEROUS LEADERSHIP IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD.

Due to the current situation of the Muslim word, it is natural that the Ummah is looking for a solution to its problems and dedicates its resources in order to alleviate itself from the catastrophes that are confronting it. In its efforts to solve its problems, it is also natural that the Muslims would realise that Islam is the only solution because it is deeply rooted in the minds of Muslims and embodies our history, language, culture, and sentiments. As a result of such a realisation, Muslims would naturally work to bring Islam back into existence..On Monday 3rd March 1924 (28th Rajab 1342AH), the world woke to the news that Mustafa Kemal in Turkey had officially abolished the Khilafah. That night Abdul-Mejid II, the last Khaleefah of the Muslims, was bundled in to a car with a suitcase of clothes and money and exiled from Turkey, never to return. This is how 1342 years of Islamic rule ended. The following is a historical account of the actions of the colonial powers in first sowing the seeds of disunity amongst Muslims by implanting the idea of nationalism and then finally administering the destruction of the Khilafah state by their treacherous agents... .The 3rd of March is a date that is etched into the history of the Muslim Ummah as one of its darkest days ever. It was on this date in the fateful year of 1924 CE that the last vestige of legitimate Islamic rule was ended. The office of Khilifah was abolished by the treacherous Mustafa Kamal and the Muslim Ummah has since then been plunged in to darkness and humiliation. Thus any trace of the Uthmani Khilafah was extinguished as the 101st Khaleefah of Islam, Abdul Mejid II was exiled from the now secular Republic of Turkey...The Khilafah (Caliphate) is a general leadership over all Muslims in the world. Its responsibility is to implement the laws of the Islam system and convey the Islamic Message to the rest of the world. The Khilafah is also called the Imama as both words have been narrated in many sahih ahadith with the same meaning.

Establishing the Khilafah and appointing a Khaleefah is obligatory on all Muslims in the world, male and female. Performing this duty (fard) is the same as performing any other duty which Allah (SWT) has ordered us, where no complacency is allowed. Indeed the Khilafah is a vital issue for the Muslims...In the end here..what THE CHIEF OF DAJJAAAL SAYS TO THE MUSLIMS..“They hope to establish a violent political utopia across the Middle East, which they call a "Caliphate" -- where all would be ruled according to their hateful ideology.”

“I'm not going to allow this to happen -- and no future American President can allow it either.”



President Bush..




salaheen Rumi, Pakistan - 11 August, 2007

Unique Deal

Let us peep into our hearts and ask ourselves a simple question. Is Benazir's present covert dealings with Musharraf and damning without care, already concluded London deal i.e., "Alliance for Democracy" is in her love for democracy? Is she not dumping moral and party principles in her selfish pursuit to rule the country at any cost, even compromising the interests of her (???) motherland.
Now let us ask the stalwarts of her party if they even remember their part's rules of business founded by their late founder Chairman, Z.A.Bhutto? I am inclined to remind them of a few of Bhutto's "golden rules" in politics, which I reproduce below:
He believed that,
1) In our contemporary politics a successful politician is the one, who tells lies with such frequency, consistency and expertise that, not only his subjects but he himself starts believing that those are actually are the truth.
2) Military adventurism in civilian domains, ( he specifically gave example of some African countries) has made the conventional democracy obsolete and has created a new form of governance he called "Coupocracy". He defined it as a system created by repeated Military interventions after short intercessions of spurious civil administrations, "engineered for failures".
3) Manipulating sentiments of masses is one of the best tools in politics. His starting point in politics was the issue concerning the authorities' confiscation of petty goods purchased by the students of Cantonment Board College for Girls, Rawalpindi, on return from Landi Kotal visit, which he managed to got released to them through "Jiala Power" of the boys of Rawalpindi Polytechnic students.
4) Bhutto believed that, "Religion is an extremely personal affair of a person" and should be respected, as long as it did not interfere in his own "personal interests". Examples are, his arranging the "Islamic Summit" in Pakistan and declaring Ahmadia community a non-Muslim entity. But, when a joint opposition movement of religious parties threatened his rule, he invited them for a round table conference at Sihala, for talks and kept them confined into several rounds of failed negotiations for a long time. He secretly called them "the old crowd" and had some covert plans to tackle them, which were only thwarted by his single miscalculation which provided a chance for a Military intervention by Zia, purported to be a 90 day's period of "safe custody". It is another story how those 90 days became eleven donkey's years.
Our greatest security risk to date, that is Benazir Bhutto, was also similarly rated and refused entry to this year's "Breakfast Prayers Meeting" of the US President Bush. In retaliation, she made harsh remarks against the US administration during her news conference in America. The Americans are not supposed to ignore that. Perhaps, her careless attitudes in politics, lack of understanding and respect for values of national secrets and other harsh manners are being used by them in the current " Gala of Deals" being brokered, to squeeze-out their own more convenient and productive Deals.
We need to examine oblique and torturous moves being made by Benazir Bhutto to gain entry into our politics and play with our destiny for the third time and watch our steps carefully, to avoid falling into the trap of "Coupocracy", for yet another time.

Musharraf & BB deal

It is unfortunate that two corrupt politicians who have no personal inegrity and do not care about the rule of law, made a deal to share power. It is only the people of Pakistn who have the right to make such a decision.

It is sad and tragic that BB has joined hands with the people who have hanged Mr. Bhutto and conspired to kill Murtaza Bhutto. How can she be faithful to Pakistan? Why should people of Pakistan trust her? Is she really that power hungary?

Sharif brothers have done a better job this time but don't count too much on them too. They are also product of Pakistan Army. Most of the cronies of Musharraf were in Sharif's government. We may see them again if he is elected to be the Premier of Pakistan.

Lets hope the struggle and sacrificed the people of Pakistan made will bring a real and true democracy in the country. It is badly needed to eliminate poverty, illetracy and gross voilations of Human Rights in Pakistan.

We want Pakistan, a country of peace with prosperity, where respect for human dignity is the corner stone of democracy.

Pakisatn Zindabad.
