Mr Zardari was thrust into the centre stage of current political developments when his wife, the charismatic former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in December.

Since then he has led her Pakistan People`s Party (PPP) through successful general elections and worked with former political enemies to force President Pervez Musharraf to resign. And yet before Ms Bhutto`s death, Mr Zardari`s public image was so bad that the PPP kept him out of the public eye as much as possible during the campaigning for February`s elections.

He spent several years in jail on charges of corruption. He was labelled "Mr 10%".

He found himself in major trouble in 1990 when he was accused of tying a remote-controlled bomb to the leg of a businessman and sending him into a bank to withdraw money from his account as a pay-off. However, he was whisked out of prison to be made a minister after the PPP won elections in 1993. In 1996, he was arrested under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance. He found himself charged with the murder of Mir Murtaza Bhutto, his wife`s brother. He was later charged, along with his wife, and convicted in a kickbacks scam involving a Swiss company, SGS. But a mistrial was declared by Pakistan`s Supreme Court following a major scandal involving the accountability bureau and the judge who had issued the verdict.

Pakistan`s judiciary has not had a reputation for acting independently of the government when it comes to high-profile cases, especially of a political nature. His last prison sentence lasted eight years until 2004, during which time he says he was tortured. It ended as the then General Musharraf was engaged in protracted negotiations with Benazir Bhutto, then in self-imposed exile, for some form of political reconciliation.

Mr Zardari resolutely stood by his party as well as his wife - although at times he disagreed with the politics of both.

His friends say this was entirely in character and that no-one can deny his personal courage.

Mr Zardari already has the judiciary in subservience, and the Parliament will also know to him, as Mr Yousuf Raza Gilani`s demeanour indicates Mr Zardari is choice of persons like Salman Farooqi and Rehman Malik who had questionable reputations in their earlier tenures as Financial and Police officials has aroused suspicious about his future intentions. Even persons chosen for the top diplomatic positions like Pakistan`s to Washington and High Commissioner to London are Party loyalists. It may be recalled that as prime minister in her first term, Benazir had personalised the choice of personnel for government jobs by downgrading the role of the Federal Public Service Commission and establishing the Placement Bureau under her direct control. However, the merit system would be undermined through party and personal patronage. Wholesale "cleansing" campaigns may be launched.

As president, Mr Zardari will undoubtedly continue the Bhutto legacy of close relations with China, though he will also seek a good relationship with the US and India. Tackling the threats of extremism and terrorism will be a major challenge and he has already complicated matters by backing self-reliance and negotiations along the Pak-Afghan and opposing a pro-active role by US and NATO forces.

    Zardari to Tackle Pakistan Islam as a Muslim Leader ?

    Pakistan and Islam do not depend upon Zardari .Pervez Musharaff brought little stability. He was persuaded to let Bhutto and Sharif return
    Back and participate in Election. He did. Then Pakistan was reminded about dangers of foreign troops along with their incursion and dictate
    In Banking Judiacries House pricing GDP shaping in conflicts between Muslims and none Muslims. It is so easy to blame Taliban alqaida
    Using 9/11 pretext in the art of war of Christianity Judaism Hinduism and Buddhism who became dependent upon Muslim Based Oil resources.

    Q. Mr. Asif Ali Zardari as President?
    A. No body can achieve office on its own. He has been given the Position while N sheriff as major opposition Coalition Party can always bring
    Motion of no Confidence and force an election. Usually People elect Majority Party and leadership.
    Q.Lawyers vs Zardari?
    A. In democracy (Islamic or Civil) Judges Lawyers and so called Amirul Momineens must resolve basic problem by judgments and for paper work to protect rights and assets. In this set up Attorney Generals Chief Justice High court infrastructure must exist. It is upto Opposition to
    Bring motion of confidence or no confidence to accelerate the process.

    Q. Will Zardari make his government able to tackle Pakistan mounting problems like economy, energy and law and order
    A. President is usually silent supervisor. Prime Minister with Cabinet ministers runs the show to govern government who should be able to tackle Pakistan problems GDP per capita House Pricing Employment Economy, Energy and Law.
    Some incompetent people can be given Qaroon's Wealth Oil resources rivers fertile lands who will squander it all living off
    IMF loan theft swindle on commission and 10%-50%-100% collusion. Consequently, Came Islam after other religions.
    Islam grew fast converting local citizens who retain world oil gas LNG resources.

    Q.Will small party blackmailed him over certain issues because big part of the coalition is now out from the government.
    A. Foreign Soldiers and Oppositon MPs must play important role. Foreign soldiers should not be attacking Pakistan or be in the neighbourhood.They must not use Pakistan opposition and rebellion to add fuel to the flame to succeed in their war like ww1 ww2 and all
    Recent wars of occupation who uses term God given free Israel with High GDP per capita or god given Iraq and OPEC oil land as license to
    Invade and retain. Islam and Muslims do exist in its fight against invaders undermining Principles of Islam and Muslim Rights and future.
    If President Zardari spends his time in none Pakistan or none Islam issue he will not last long.

    To be on safe side

    I fully admire what prime minister Mr Gilani has talked of engaging into dialogue for conflict resolutions, whether it is with Nato-US or with militants.He is right about giving peace the first chance.Mr Zardari too will be wise to play his peace laden acrobats on mitigating difficult problems.

    PEACE MODED APPROACH FOR CONFLICT RESOLUTIONS IS VERY ESSENTIAL FOR ZARDARI AND ALL OTHERS INCLUDING ALL OF PAK NATION AS WE ARE SAILING THROUGH EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND EXPLOSIVE TIMES WHERE THE MIGHTIEST NATIONS ARE VERY MUCH FLIRTING WITH WORLD WAR THREE.PAKISTAN IS MUCH SAFER TO PLAY ACROBATS OF TERROR MITIGATION RATHER THAN GET SUCKED INTO THE ARMAGEDDON RECIPE OF WW3.

    EVEN OUR PAK MILITARY THRESHOLD DOES NOT ALLOW TO ENGAGE ANY MIGHTY ONES LIKE AMERICA, RUSSIA OR CHINA IN ANY COUNTER STRIKE AGAINST THE MIGHTY ONES.OUR VERY DEFENSIVE MILITARY THRESHOLD WAS BUILT TO DEFEND AGAINST ONLY ONE NEIGHBOUR AND THAT TOO UNDER VERY COMPULSIVE AND HOSTILE INVASION OF OUR HOME LAND BY THAT VICIOUS NEIGHBOUR.EVEN OUR NUCLEAR ARSENAL HAS ONLY ONE SPECIFIC DEFENSIVE PURPOSE AND HAS TO BE KEPT SECURE FOR THAT REASON ONLY.

    LUCKILY PAKS ARE NOT EVEN REQUIRED TO BE PART OF WW3 EQUATION. WE WILL BE SUCKED INTO IT IF WE CHALLENGE AMERICA IN A MAD ACT.LET THE MIGHTY ONES WORRY ABOUT THE OTHER MIGHTY ONES. PAKS HAVE DONE REASONABLY WELL TO MITIGATE TERROR AND HAVE MADE REPEAT OF 9/11 AN IMPOSSIBLE THING THAT CAN NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

    PAKS HAVE TO STAY VERY NEUTRAL TO BE SAFE. ZARDARI AND GILANI HAVE TO TALK AND ACT WITH COOL MINDS TO AMERICA AND ANY TROUBLE MAKERS INSIDE PAKISTAN.IF TERROR KILLS 50 PEOPLE A WEEK, A FULL BLOWN WAR LIKE BETWEEN GERMANY AND RUSSIA SENT 25000-40000 BODY BAGS INTO THE TWO FIGHTING NATIONS HOMES DAILY.A TOTAL ABSOLUTE WAR IS THE BIGGEST CURSE THAT CAN BEFALL A NATION.AND A NUCLEAR WAR IS TOTAL ANNIHILATION.A COOL AND PEACEFUL HEAD IS WHAT WILL BE REQUIRED OF ZARDARI OR GILANI TO SAFEGUARD THE LIFE OF OUR 175 MILLION PEOPLE.IN THIS VERY DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT AROUND US,WE DO NOT WISH TO SEE TROUBLES MOVING IN EITHER DIRECTION-FROM US TO OTHERS AND VICE VERSA.WE WILL BE BEST OFF IF WE CAN STAY AT PEACE AND OUT OF THE WW 3 EQUATION.WE HAVE NO BUSINESS EVEN TO KNOW THAT US-NATO AND RUSSIA AND ITS ALLIES ARE DRAGGING THEMSELVES INTO WW3.OUR BUSINESS IS ONLY PEACE AND HOW WE CAN STAY OUT OF WW3 EQUATION.

    HERE ARE MY ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS:

    According to scenario mentioned above, what do you think about President Zardari`s future as a president?

    Answer:
    No nation ever changes its leaders even half way through if there are wars or war like situations around.I think he must be ok, if he can play peace related political acrobats.More over,he is co-chairman of the political party that controls more seats than any other party.One very big plus for Paks at this time is that the second best elected party of Nawaz Sharif is not going to rock PPP boat.Nawaz is doing exactly what wise leaders have done elsewhere.You do not fight each other when your own life is at stake.We have very explosive dangers looming and that danger is of WW3.THE WHOLE NATION HAS TO FORGET ALL DIFFERENCES AND MAKE SURE THAT WE STAY OUT OF THE WW3 EQUATION.

    Lawyers movement is once again getting momentum. In your opinion will they give President Zardari a tough time?

    Answer:
    Given the dangerously explosive wars and quazi wars situation around us, lawers movement will subside like before.It is not time to be in favour of or going against lawyers or as a matter of fact against any body or groups in Pakistan.The international mighty forces have no interest in making these lawyers movements succeed and Paks may not like them fail.Well, they will be like rolling stones as none is saint like in Pakistan.The judges, the politicians and the military brass have had made themselves very privileged at the expense of the common man.All these privileged ones were after BMW'S, MERCEDSES AND MANSIONS WHILE THE COMMON MAN SUFFERED.NOW IS THE TIME TO THINK ONLY ABOUT LIFE AND SURVIVAL OF THE PEOPLE OF OUR NATION AS WW3 IS LOOMING AROUND US.WE WILL HAVE TO CONCENTRATE ON PEACE ONLY.

    Will President Zardari make his government able to tackle Pakistan mounting problems like economy, energy and law & order, inflation, unemployment etc.?

    Answer:
    Zardari or any one else are after all leaders of a nation that needs foreign assistance.Zardari and Gilani will definitely get foreign financial help if they ask for it.Luckily for Paks, help will come from China, America and the Islamic world and Europe.Pakistan's very important geo strategy will be the cause of that help.

    Do you think President Zardari would face any other issues or challenges from other political parties in addition to concerns raised by PML-N?

    Answer: No, not at all.

    Do you think, President Zardari is the right replacement of Former President Musharraf?

    Answer:

    What do you expect after the long sought and languished exercise on popular vote of Pak democracy.

    Zardari finally achieved his goal.

    Zardari has finally achieved his goal by murdering Murtaza Bhutto and then clear his way by murdering Benazir Bhutto to become President.

    He is criminal who is not interested in solving Pakistan's problem. He will work for his own personal agenda of accumulating more wealth.

    Zardari, the messiah?

    „h Do you think President Zardari would face any other issues or challenges from other political parties in addition to concerns raised by PML-N?



    President Zardari is no body¡¦s fool. He knows where his bread is buttered and would do every thing within or ouside the book, to ensure his bite. His belief that, promises are not words of God is his strong enough weapon capable of turning any adverse situation back in his favour, under any circumstances, by following and resorting to all sorts of conciveable oblique routes and practices.





    „h Do you think President Zardari is the right replacement of Former President Musharraf?



    History does not help people to correct themselves. Inbuilt nature of a man can never change. Lion cannot agree to graze and fish will never breathe air. Twice tested and rejected two former Prime Ministers are not born again devils-turned-angels. They can only join hands to do with vengeance, what they are made to do in first place and did earlier individually. That is, making fortunes by snatching from their underprivileged people, their simple and elementary rights to live with respect and honour. I am appalled at the indifference. People twice stung, are still dying to be stung repeatedly.

    For Musharraf, I am beginning to have a soft corner. The poor man started to turn Sham Democracy in Pakistan into a genuine one, but 9//11 toppled him. He did his best to solve Kashmir crisis, but his adversaries continued haunting him with Kargil misadventure. He went to befriend Israel in his initiative to solve ME crisis but, hard-lined-hard-boiled stubborn Mullahs turned his tables. Now, when he was almost on the verge of turning terror image of Pakistan into softer and moderate one, the bogeys of two former prime ministers were sent to terrorize him into inaction. It is no body's secret that the judicial crisis has been deliberately created and installed by those covert hands, whose interests are harmed by a progressing and strong Pakistan. His adversaries know better than him that, they will never achieve their hidden sinister aims in a safe Pakistan. Therefore they are doing everything necessary, to keep Pakistan in a perpetual state of crisis. Solution to the crisis can never emerge from the very root cause of crisis, i.e., the Zombies of the former leaders.

    Zardari, the messiah

    „h Lawyer¡¦s movement is once again getting momentum. In your opinion will they give President Zardari a tough time?



    The story reported in media about Zardari loosing patience against frequent outbursts of Aitzaz in his crusade for restoration of judges or more precisely, reinstatement of Mr. Iftikhar Chaudhry, gives the answer. Can Ch. Aitzaz explain why he is so chummy with Ch. Iftikhar? Can he deceive any one by pretending that, Iftikhar Ch. is just one of his normal clients and he is taking all the troubles in the line of his professional obligations because, he has accepted a very handsome fee of "One" Rupee, from Iftikhar Chaudhry? Will it be possible for Ch. Iftikhar to face and treat Ch. Aitzaz as an ordinary lawyer in court and give judgments in his cases free and fair, without any favour what so ever, if he is restored back as Chief Justice?

    In the light of all this, is it possible for Mr. Zardari to agree and dig his own grave by accepting his Undertaker Iftikhar as his legal caretaker? Two are the master shamists and have nothing but to give each other real tough times. Zardari atleast is correct in reminding all that, Iftikhar Chaudhry was a PCO judge who grilled him severely while in prison custody. A PCO judge remains the same, whether on bench, or out. He can never be equated equal with honest and sincere to bench loyalists of the profession who prefer to suffer rather than succumb to shams. We the people have to be the real decision makers. If we have achieved a real democracy, then we should know what is being done to materialize premises which were made to us by these leaders and ensure their performance accordingly, or show them the quick route of exit from the scene, if they falter. This is what should really give us in a real democracy.



    „h Will President Zardari make his government able to tackle Pakistan mounting problems like economy, energy and law & order, inflation, unemployment etc.?



    Our erstwhile glorious "Islamic Republic of Pakistan" has already metamorphosed into the "Banana Republic of Pakistan." Therefore, we must understand its genesis and stop hallucinating.



    Banana is a food for the lethargic people. It grows without toiling in most inhospitable places and yields high. Even it can be eaten without need for having munching teeth. It is equally healthy for weak and strong. Therefore, "Banana Republic" is a disparaging term appropriately coined to represent a country which is politically unstable, its people are hungry, its agriculture is nomadic, it is ruled by self elected obscene-rich feudal-lords through their highly corrupt cliques of officials, always ready to make their masters happy through all possible oblique practices, means and devices. In such countries cliques of small, largely un-principled groups of people always remain on the top to rule a large, poorly educated and poorly paid working class, although they might have the (sham) titles of a democratic or republic governments giving all sorts of hopes which do not go beyond dreams, always. The most important aspect of a banana republic therefore is its self perpetuation in various guises with a continued agenda of keeping its poor semi-human mules ready to be deceived at the faintest ray of defiant hope. Education and modernity are the most lethal viruses that the ruling cliques must ensure to keep at bay, at all costs.



    Almost always, the ruling cliques in a banana republic are formed by the military junta or, are products of their exaggerated fears of various monsters created by them for deceiving poor masses as tools to magnify their own selfish importance. They meticulously create large wealth inequities, engineer poor infrastructures, establish rich-poor divided education system, a "reverse-geared" economy, national budgets forcing minimal purchasing power of masses, a forced reliance on foreign loans and printing paper money without collateral's, budget deficits, and an ever weakening currency. All these ingredients typically make a Banana Republic highly prone to revolutions and coups and counter coups, a must for keeping hope and struggle for survival of the poor alive, to feed the covert agenda of fortune hunters.



    The term banana republic was originally created to generally represent some Latin American countries like Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala of yester-years. But, ground realities today, have made us the most eligible banana republic country that qualifies as "fit the hand like glove".

    M.Saeed, Pakistan - 17 September, 2008

    Zardari, the messiah?

    According to scenario mentioned above, what do you think about President Zardari`s future as a president?

    It would be recalled that, President Asif Ali Zardari had made a solemn pledge during his press conference with a Chinese reporter on his assuming the august seat of the President of Pakistan that, giving due importance to the very strong and time tested highly dependable friendly relations with China, as a mark of appreciation and respect, he would visit China as his first official foreign engagement. But, such promises have no value and honour in his mind because, these promises are not words of God or Prophet. Promises are only promises, having no value unless sanctioned by the Ultimate Authority. Therefore, the next best authority has a priority and Mr. Zardari has bowed to it, rushing to the UK, on his way to the US.
    Those who value history and learn from it will remember that, Shaheed-e-Millat, Liaqat Ali Khan had also made a similar promise about visiting USSR, our strong neighbour, as his first official foreign assignment, after assuming the office of the Prime Minister of Pakistan. But, the US became furiously antagonized on being neglected and therefore got his visit cancelled, instead making him visit Washington. What happened there-after is our conveniently forgotten history so that we can repeat the unlearned lesson any number of times.

    Army act of Pakistan zindabad !

    Almighty God bless America,The USA. Most powerful man has gone and two richest persons/groups have come in power. The poor will become poorer and rich will be richer day by day because of the unique business of politics in Pakistan.This condition is very hopeless for middle class educated people and majority population of poor in Pakistan. President Musharraf handed over resignation to the chief of army staff in presence of other generals. Army act of Pakistan zindabad , Pakistan paindabad. For God sake, plan for creation of jobs and circulation of money to boost economy of the under developed country. And make sure the rule of law oner rule the law of ruler. Hard working people of Pakistan can make this great country a wonderful place if justice is provided to the common man. All the best with lot of prayers to the Almighty GOD for the welfare of oppressed people in Pakistan

    Pilot Zardari

    Every body is talking of how imperfect or crook is Zardari or Nawaz or how military was made privileged by Musharraf even though he himself was not real crook.I don't think that people are talking nice about any politician or any power people in Pakistan or most of the world.In return, those holding power can blame the populace and say that them are crooks as well.

    Even Sadam was big crook to have built for self palaces with much inside of pure gold. America's Dick chenny is crook with his oil empire of Haliburton and other oil and gas field servicing companies.The list never ends and you will find that power is sought to get rich.Power is lust. Even BB knew that she had loomimg death and she even pre-told about it to all.

    But, the dangers looming for mankind are much bigger than talking of accountabilities.

    ALL MANKIND HAS SERIOUS AND REAL DANGER LOOMING OF WORLD WAR THREE.IF WE CAN SAIL THROUGH NEXT 2-3 YEARS WITH WORLD NOT EXPLODING INTO WW3, WE WILL BE LUCKY HUMANITY.THE DANGER IS VERY REAL AND AVOIDING IT WILL BE ALMOST A MIRACLE.

    ZARDARI OR ANY LEADER WILL BE WINNING POLITICAL ACROBATS IF HE CAN STEER THROUGH THE LOOMING DANGER OF SLIPPING INTO WW3 SAFELY.

    PAKISTAN IS HOWEVER RELATIVELY FORTUNATE THAT THEY EXPECT US TO ONLY MITIGATE TERROR.IT MAY BRING SOME PAINFUL DIVISIONS AMONG OUR PEOPLE, BUT WE CAN DO PASSIFYING MASSAGE ON FELLOW PAKS TO CONVINCE US ALL TO DO THE LEAST DAMAGE TO FELLOW PAK AND DO SOME CLEVER CONVINCING TO THE MIGHTY NATIONS THAT WE WANT PEACE AND LEAST OF TROUBLE IN PAKS.

    I THINK NAWAZ WAS A NICE MAN, BUT HIS BRAIN COULD NOT GO ACROBATING BEYOND TWO AND ONLY TWO ISSUES.A LIMITED BRAIN WAS PLAYED OUT QUICKLY AS SOON AS NAWAZ HAD PLAYED OUT HIS ONLY ONE OR TWO CARDS.HE WAS OUT BECAUSE OF HIS LIMITED BRAIN OF HANDLING ONLY TWO ISSUES.HE JUST COULD'NT EVEN THINK OF OFFERING MORE THAN THAT.BENAZIR GOT KILLED AND NER MANOUVERS WERE CHAINED TOO AS SOME MIGHTY POWER CONTROLLED HER INTERNATIONAL ASSETS TO CONTROL HER POLITICAL ACTS.

    NOW, YOU HAVE ZARDARI AND ZARDARI ONLY AND THE NATION HAS TO LIVE WITH THAT.THE CHOICES ARE LIMITED AS INDIA IS LOOKING FOR A WOLF LIKE CHANCE TO TEAR APART PAKISTAN.ONLY NUKES ARE OUR INSURANCE FOR SURVIVAL.LIAQAT ALI KHAN RAN INTO SIMILAR SITUATION MORE THAN FIFTY YEARS AGO AS INDIA HAD AMASSED TROOPS ON PAK BORDERS AND WAS READY TO ATTACK.THOSE WHO STILL SURVIVE, REMEMBER THE FAMOUS FIST OF OUR PRIME MINISTER LIAQAT ALI KHAN. BUT, HE TOO, VERY INTELLIGENTLY, CAME TO AMERICA TO TIE UP PAKISTAN'S SECURITY WITH AMERICA.AMERICA ARMED PAKISTAN AND WE WERE ABLE TO STAND UP TO INDIA, WHO HAS LOOKED FOR EVERY CHANCE TO UNDO 1947 PARTITION AND THAT GIVES ALL MUSLIMS OF SOUTH ASIA A SLAVE LIKE AND POVERTY LADEN STATUS.

    HONESTLY, I DO RESPECT AND REGARD CHINA AS MORE RELIABLE THAN AMERICA.BUT CHINA STORY IS STILL 20 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.IN 1965 WAR, PRESIDENT AYUB FLEW INTO CHINA FOR REAL BIG TIME HELP.THERE WAS CHINESE HELP OF SOME SORT,BUT AYUB WAS ADVISED TO RETREAT INTO MOUNTAINS AND FIGHT PROTRACTATED GUIRRILA WARS.BUT, AYUB KHAN THOUGHT IT MORE WISE TO KEEP FIGHTING ON BORDERS RATHER THAN RETREATING TO MOUNTAINS AND LEAVE PAKISTAN'S CIVIL POPULATION ON PLAINS AND CITIES TO FREE LANCE GENOCIDE AND RAPES OF WOMEN.SO, OUR BRAVE MILITARY FOUGHT ON RATHER THAN RETREATING AWAY FROM PEOPLE AND INTO MOUNTAINS.WE ARE MUCH SAFER NOW AS 100 OR SO NUKES CAN OBLITERATE INDIA AS VERY RELIABLE DETTERENCE.WE CAN TELL INDIA NOW AS:

    "WE WILL EITHER LIVE TOGETHER(NEIGHBOURS) OR WE WIL DIE TOGETHER AS NEIGHBOURS.SUCH DETERRENCE IN 1971 MIGHT HAVE SAVED EAST PAKISTAN.

    I THINK WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH ZARDARI NOW AND JUST GIVE HIM FEED BACK THROUGH NATION'S UNITY.LET US ALL KNOW AMONGST US THAT WE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER.WITHOUT UNITY AMONGST PUNJABI'S, PATHANS, SINDHIS, BALOCHI'S, URDU SPEAKING AND KASHMIRIS, WE WILL ALL VANISH.ALL OUR BIG CITIES AND WHAT EVER BIG WE HAVE AS UNITED WILL SHRINK TO NOTHING AS WE ARE TIED AND INTERWINED THROUGH UNITY.IF PPP AND MQM CAN FORGET THE PAST AND RE-CONCILE,SO CAN OTHERS.

    PAKISTAN IS MORE FORTUNATE DUE TO THE FACT THAT WE ARE ONLY PART OF TERROR MITIGATING EQUATION AND NOT WW3 EQUATION.INDIA MAY NOT BE THAT FORTUNATE AS THE ECONOMIC AND ENERGY EQUATION WILL PITCH INDIA AGAINST AT LEAST CHINA.THE MISSILES AND SUBMARINE BASES HAVE ALREADY TARGETED THE AIMS.I THINK ZARDARI IS DOING GOOD ACROBATS ON PEACE VIS A VIS PEACE.PEACE IS OUR BIGGEST CONCERN AND I MEAN STAYING OUT OF WW3 EQUATION WILL BE THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF ZARDARI.HE HAS DELAYED CHINA TRIP AS OTHER PRESSING NEED OF INTRUSION INTO PAK TERRITORY IN THE FORM OF RAIDS SPOILS THAT FREEDOM FROM WW3 EQUATION.CHINA CAN BE EMBRACED LATER AND WE WILL NEED ECONOMIC TIE UPS WITH CHINA AND AMERICA.WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY ONE'S WW3 EQUATION.WE CAN ONLY HELP ON TERROR ISSUES AND THEY ARE MUCH LESS DANGEROUS THAN SEEING TEN THOUSAND BODIES A DAY COMING HOME FROM REAL BIG WARS.

    PAKISTAN AND ZARDARI PILOT HAVE TO THINK OF PEACE ONLY.

    The Prejudices Pakistan's New President Faces


    Truth is always bitter that's why some hypocrite take it in a negative sense.Asif Zardari is the hangman, the fall guy, responsible for everything, including bad weather, bad times and bad everything. He is presented variously as the feudal lord, as the man who breaks promises, and now the two that I find quite below the belt are, the stories of his supposed mental illness and an informal reference to Zalmay Khalilzad, America's ambassador to the UN.First, no one can deny the fact that Asif Zardari knows his politics, and knows it well. His politics is logical, often cold-hearted but pragmatic to the core.Politics and morality are not the same thing. Politics is not religion nor is it a moral code. It is the art and the science of reaching, keeping and sustaining power. It is a system of making, or breaking alliances, for the common cause.Zardari knows his politics, and he also knows how political tactics can make dictators melt away, and turn fortunes around, can bring together parties that formerly never saw eye to eye.The prison period perhaps was the place where Zardari trained in political strategy and planning. The ideas for reconciliation with Nawaz Sharif took root then, as did the method to appease the BalochTalking of principles, Zardari has proved loyal to the party and steadfast as well. Talking further of principles, here is a person who despite his eleven years in prison, has not pursued politics of revenge,here is a man who stood by his wife, and her politics, agreed to be her second in a society where it is not the done thing. So where is the feudal?If this is the man who has used helped us overcome the grief and tragedy of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto's assassination, and if he has used political means to get us rid of the most detested and dangerous man in Pakistan's recent history, and then brought together Mohajirs and Sindhis, Balochis and Punjabis, and work to heal the wounds of the Pushtoons, isn't he the most important symbol of the federation?Who is afraid of Asif Ali Zardari… I tell you it is the haute bourgeoisie from the region between Okara and Attock led by Nawaz Sharif and his minions.
    Till a decade ago they were the blue-eyed boys of the establishment…. now fate has put them on side of the Lawyers' Movement. But their core is extreme right wing conservative.Nawaz money hungry greedy scum bag even did not hesitate to take money from world famous terrorist Osama.
    Asif Ali Zardari may not be perfect but he enjoys the backing of 3.5 provinces. Today the federation is strong because of him.Nawaz and his cronies ask their followers for sacrifice but Nawaz and LUHAR company was afriad of death and ran out of country,When someone is disturbed by the word Shaheed for Benazir Bhutto or His Shaheed father…he definitely would have reserved it for the Zia,Nawaz Spiritual father….whom he had promised to accomplish his mission…and what was his mission…Great Jihad under the command of Charlie Wilson…to destabilize the region…all those who are killed for the cause of world powers…are DECLARED SHAHEED…. Ahmad Faraz has rightly commented on ZIA murder as…ab samaj aya ye shair…k Shaheed ki jo maut hai wo Qaum ki Hayat hai.

    Allah bless Paks with peace and security

    It is time to pray for peace and security for our dear Pakistan and our very dear people there.

    I used the word pilot for Zardari as any ruler with absolute delegated authority becomes political pilot to steer the nation safely.The term pilot for political leader became popular in Europe especially for Bismarck, who was the architect of German grandness to make it super power and key nation of the first half of the last century our world lived.

    I honestly wish from my heart that Pakistan becomes as much safe and secure as Canada, which is the example of safety and security in the world.It is time to forgive and accomodate every Pakistani of us and pray for peace and security of the country.

    PAKISTAN IS SURROUNDED BY THE GLOBAL INTERESTS OF THE MIGHTIEST NATIONS ACTIVATED AROUND OUR MOST DANGEROUS GEO-STRATEGY.THE OTHER NIGHT, THERE WAS VERY SAD LOSS OF LIFE IN FIVE STAR HOTEL IN ISLAMABAD.THERE IS CONSTANT TRAGIC LOSS OF LIVES OF OUR VERY DEAR AND SWEET PAKS FOR PEACE REASONS.PAKISTAN'S SACRIFICES WILL NOT INSHALLAH GO IN VAIN AS THESE SACRIFICES ARE PAINFULLY BEING BORNE BY OUR VERY DEAR TO HEART PAKS.THESE SACRIFICES ARE TO MITIGATE WORLD WAR THREE FOR NOT ONLY PAKS BUT FOR THE WHOLE WORLD AS THE MIGHTIEST NATIONS ARE GEARING THEMSELVES WITH ITCHY FINGERS ON THEIR MILITARY AND NUCLEAR ARSENALS.

    PAKISTAN IS GIVING THESE SACRIFICES TO KEEP THE COUNTRY AS BUFFER TO WARD OFF AND AWAY THOSE ON CHARIOTS OF WW3 VEHICLES.WISH PAKISTAN SOON BECOMES SWITZERLAND OF ASIA FOR PEACE REASONS.

    SINCE ZARDARI IS FROM ELECTED PARTY AND IS NOW THE NATION'S PILOT, WE ALL HAVE TO PRAY THAT HE STEERS US THROUGH THESE MOST DIFFICULT TIMES IN HISTORY WITH PEACE AND SAFETY.

    THE WORLD IS PASSING THROUGH VERY DIFFICULT TIMES BOTH IN DANGERS AND FINANCIAL TROUBLES.THE NEW YORK AND OTHER STOCK MARKETS DID NOT SUFFER AS BAD AFTER 9/11 AS THEY HAVE SUFFERED NOW DUE TO HIGH OIL PRICES AND SPENDING TO MITIGATE TERROR.EVEN THE MIGHTIEST NATIONS ARE GETTING ON EACH OTHER'S THROAT WITH ENERGY INSECURITY REASONS AND JUST TO PICK ON MENTALITY.

    PAKISTAN'S EFFORTS TO KEEP THE COUNTRY FREE OF MIGHTY OMES MOVING IN AT BIG SACRIFICIAL COST MUST BE COMMENDED AND RESPECTED WITH APPRECIATED REGARDS BY THE WHOLE WORLD.BY MAINTAING ITSELF AS THE SOLE DEFENDER OF PEACE AND KEEPING THE MIGHTIEST PARTED AWAY AS WW3 DANGERS, PAKS ARE REALLY THE DIVINE AND PIVOTAL FULCRUM OF GLOBAL PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND.

    WE COMMISERATE WITH ALL THOSE PAKS WHO SACRIFICED AND ALL THOSE PAKS WHO ARE STEADFAST FOR CAUSE OF PEACE FOR HUMANITY.

    IF POLAND HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN KEEPING RUSSIA AND GERMANY OUT OF THEIR COUNTRY, THE WORLD WAR TWO COULD HAVE BEEN AVERTED.PAKISTAN IS TRYING TO KEEP ALL MIGHTIEST OUT, EVEN BE A SACRIFICIAL BUFFER,AND SET THE GRANDEST PEACE MODEL IN HISTORY.

    PAKISTAN'S SACRIFICES MAY AND WILL BE THE KEY CAUSE OF AVERTING WW3.

    THE WORLD MUST BE GRATEFUL FOR PAK SACRIFICES AS THESE SACRIFICES ARE AVERTING AND MITIGATING ALL DANGERS OF WW3.EACH DROP OF PAK BLOOD LOST IN STRUGGLE TO AVERT WW3 IS THE GRANDEST SACRIFICE IN HISTORY AS IT IS ONLY TO KEEP THE MIGHTIEST PARTED FROM EACH OTHER IN THE VERY HONEST PAK BID TO STAVE OFF WW3.

    EACH PAK IS VERY LOVABLE AND KISSABLE FOR PAKS SACRIFICES FOR NOBLE CAUSE OF AVERTING WW3 BY KEEPING THE MIGHTIES PARTED AWAY FOR PEACE REASONS.FOR THAT VERY NOBLE PEACE CAUSE, PAKS DESERVE RESPECT AND ADMIRATION OF ALL MANKIND.

    LOVE YOU MY SWEET PAKS
    STAY AS GRAND AS YOU ARE
    YOU ARE THE TRUE PEACE CHAMPS
    AGAINST LOOMING 3RD WORLD WAR

    WITH THE SACRIFICES YOU GIVE
    ALL THE MANKIND WILL LIVE
    PAKS YOU PART MIGHTY ONES OUT
    N STOP NUKES RATTLING ABOUT

    LET THE WORLD UNDERSTAND
    PAKS ARE PEACEFUL AND GRAND
    AND FOR EACH PAK WE SING
    YOU ARE PEACE LOVING THING

    THE SKY MAY BE STARLESS
    AND NIGHT MAY BE MOONLESS
    BUT THE PAKS SHINE FOR PEACE
    FOR ALL MANKIND, TO BLESS

    TO SAVE ALL OUR MANKIND
    FROM THE WORLD WAR THREE FEAR
    PAKS SACRIFICE FOR PEACE
    PAKS YOU ARE SO SWEET N DEAR

    Interview

    Pilot Zardari during his interview to msnbc thanked Bush for giving him the democracy! His approach to fight terrorism is to arm people of Bajor and other agencies if they are not already armed than prompt them to fight with terrorists! It seems a formula to create a civil war in NWFP. With this strategy in full swing does pilot zardari know how to use landing gear at the time of landing? One would hope if not read hopefully has seen how landing manual looks like!

    kadar khan, Pakistan - 24 September, 2008

    answering Questions

    According to scenario mentioned above, what do you think about President Zardari`s future as a president?

    Ans:
    We are concerned more about the future of Pakistan and its peaceful and safe steering through the most dangerous circumstances of the world today.Given the current global tensions and itchy warlike temperaments of the most mighty ones, bearing the tough financial scenarios and big banks and business failures and related 700 billion dollars rescue package by already bankrupt borrowing,global stock markets sick and fear laden performances,grudging hate of countries and fellow humans and total lack of compromising spirit world wide,Paks may as well try Zardari to give soft and smiling non partisan impetus to project Pakistan as the peace centered nation to the world.At least,unlike Nawaz, Zardari has compromising spirit and mentality.He did forgive MQM despite the May last year attacks.

    WE ARE SEEKING VALVET SOFT AND SATIN AND SILK SMOOTH MINDED ZARDARI AS THE CHALLENGE IS TO KEEP PAKS OUT OF WORLD WAR THREE EQUATION THAT IS SERIOUSLY LOOMING OVER ALL MANKIND TO BRING FINAL ARMAGEDDON ANNIHILATION OF HUMAN RACE.A SOFT AND COMPROMISING MAN LIKE ZARDARI HAS BETTER CHANCE TO STEER PAKS THROUGGH THAT MOST DIFFICULT TIME OF HUMAN HISTORY.REVENGEFUL AND TEMPERAMENTAL LEADERSHIP WILL SURE LEAD US RIGHT INTO DESTRUCTION SIDE OF LOOMING WW3.COOL PLAYING AND SOFT PEDDLING MOODS AND MODES ARE REQUIRED TO MAKE US LOOK AS PEACE NATION.ZARDARI IS AGGREIVED DUE TO LOSS OF BB, YET HE HAS ABSORBED THE SHOCK WITH A COMPULSION TEMPTED SMILE AS A WAY TO HIDE HIS BROKEN HEART SANS BB.

    PAKISTAN DOES NOT WANT TO GET TRAPPED IN GRINDING DEATH WHEELS OF THE LOOMING WW3.I THINK THAT NO ONE ELSE SANS ZARDARI MAY HAVE THE QUALITIES AND CHARACTER TO MELT AND SOFTEN THE WAR MONGERING MOODS OF JUST ABOUT EVERY MIGHTY LEADER AND PEOPLE.A SMILE CAN LEAD YOU TO SAFETY,WHILE SHOW OF ANGER CAN SURE TRAP US ALL IN DEATH AND DESTRUCTION OF THE LOOMING WW3.I HONESTLY THINK THAT OUR LOVED AND LOVABLE WORLD AND ABOVE ALL OUR SWEET PAKISTAN FACES THE DANGERS OF LOOMING WW3.ZARDARI MAY BE A COOL MAN TO MITIGATE FOR PAKS THE DANGERS OF THE BIGGEST LOOMING THREAT IN HISTORY.

    Lawyers movement is once again getting momentum. In your opinion will they give President Zardari a tough time?

    Ans:
    I DON'NT THINK THAT ANY MOVEMENTS LIKE LAWYERS OR ANY OTHERS FIT IN ANY WHERE WHEN YOU HAVE WAR OR QUASI WAR ENVIRONMENTS AROUND.WITH SO MANY LOOTERS AROUND, THERE IS ROOM FOR ONLY ONE LOOTER AS THE COUNTRY HAS VERY LIMITED, RATHER CRISIS LEVEL RESOURCES.THE WORLD HAS FINANCIAL CRISIS AND BUSH IS GIVING 700 BILLION DOLLARS BAIL OUT PACKAGE FROM HIS 14 TRILLION DOLLARS ECONOMY. RUSSIA IS DOING SAME TYPE 100-150 BILLION DOLLARS BAIL OUT PACKAGE TO ITS TROUBLED FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS OUT OF RUSSIA'S 2 TRILLION DOLLARS ECONOMY.PAKISTAN WILL BE SEEKING AMERICA'S AND CHINA'S AND ARAB HELP TO BAIL OUT OUR PAK'S FINANCIAL CRISIS.I DON'T THINK THAT AMERICA OR CHINA OR ARABS OR PAK MILITARY OR EVEN ZARDARI IS GOING TO CARE ABOUT LAWYER'S MOVEMENTS.EVEN MOST PAKISTANIS HAVE DISTRUST OF EVERY BODY AND THEY FIND THEMSELVES POWERLESS AND HELPLESS TO SUPPORT SOMETHING WHICH IS JUST AS BIG CROOK AS OTHERS JUGGLING AROUND THEIR MONEY SCAMMING POLITICAL ACROBATS.

    Will President Zardari make his government able to tackle Pakistan mounting problems like economy, energy and law & order, inflation, unemployment etc.?

    Ans:
    I THINK ZARDARI WILL BE SEEKING ADVISE AND HELP, EVEN FINANCIAL HELP FROM AMERICA,CHINA AND ARABS AND HE WILL GET SOME OR MOST AS NO BODY WANTS TO SEE A DESTABILIZED PAKISTAN EXCEPT INDIA.PAKISTAN HAS THE SECOND LARGEST COAL RESERVES IN THE WORLD AND AMERICA AND CANADA HAVE THE BEST ENGINEERING IN BEST OF OPEN PIT MINING.AND AMERICA AND CHINA WILL BOTH BE WILLING TO DEVELOPE PAKS COAL AND COAL BASED ELECTRIC POWER.PAKISTAN WILL GET DEVELOPMENT HELP AND POWER GENERATION HELP FROM JUST ABOUT ALL WHO WILL BE ASKED FOR.AND ZARDARI WILL REALLY HAVE TO IMPORTUNE HIS DEMANDS MORE LOUDLY AND BEAT MORE OF PEACE AND TERROR MITIGATION TRUMPET WITH DEFINITE NO TO ANY WW3 PARTICIPATION DESIRE.

    Do you think President Zardari would face any other issues or challenges from other political parties in addition to concerns raised by PML-N?

    Ans:
    NO.OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES ARE MORE OR LESS PROVINCIAL SPECIFIC WITH CONFINES IN THEIR OWN PROVINCES.AND ZARDARI IS FAR TOO BETTER OF A POLITICAL ACROBAT TO PLAY THEM ALL OUT.NAWAZ SHARIF EXAMPLE IS ALL BEFORE OUR EYES.ZARDARI IS RATHER MORE FEDRALLY SPREAD THAN ALL OTHERS AND HE CAN EVEN COMPROMISE AND MASSAGE EVEN PAK MILITARY.MOST IMPORTANT, HE DOES NOT CARE MUCH FOR REVENGE AND THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT QUALITY TO HAVE IN THIS VERY TOUGH WORLD OF TODAY.

    Do you think, President Zardari is the right replacement of Former President Musharraf?

    Ans:
    RIGHT OR NOT,PERHAPS LESS RIGHT ALL WOULD SAY.IF YOU BELIEVE IN DEMOCRACY RELATED ELECTIONS THAT WE HAD, ZARDARI IS THERE WITH ELECTIONS DICTATED RIGHTS.


    Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 24 September, 2008

    Survival through peace only

    With very hostile human attitudes of the strong against weak, even mighty ones against the other mighty,with global economies led by America on brink of failure and with profound confusion prevalent world wide about energy insecurity and economies,the world needs cool, accomodating, reconciling and tolerant minds to get out of this mess our mankind is in.Russia is calling it looming failure of capitalism even though Russia is also bailing out its economy at the tune of 100-150 billion dollars to extricate itself out of this financial chimera.

    Our Zardari was talking reconcilliation with just about every one today at UN.He was making the whole world feel that Paks have no foe except terror and terror is the only thing he will mitigate.He even is having peace massaging and peace storming session with ManMohan Singh of India.Well Zardari's political acrobating might keep us Paks out of WW3 equation. Actually Paks home scene is not that bad and only terror is biting us. At home Nawaz is only putting up opposition that is vavet soft and silk and satin smooth.MQM and PPP have re-conciled and Punjab is pacified as well.And NWFP and Baluchistan and even Fata are doing business through less rough or sluff.No segment of Pak civilians have inter ethnic hate that exists amongst Iraqis or Afghans.

    The biggest fear faced by us all humanity is WW3.Terror mitigation can annul or put to lull the suicide bombings and again these ugly things are not near as ugly as full blown wars that can cause 10000 dead a day each.

    As president Bush message was for urgent and fast bail out, Americans do not want to get embroiled into slow legal steps forward.They want bail out now and sudden.

    As matter of fact,FBI of America was talking of probes of fraud at high corporate and banking level as the possible cure of this mess.But, no delay please, the bail out has to be right now,as 1930's type economic depression from the worse stock market crash in history,could only be over come by WW2.Only WW2 and slaughter of over 100 million military and civilians in WW2 was the only sad and ugly thing to steer the world out of depression.It is not time to probe time consuming process of fraud detection and do remediation of the finacial and banking system.It is time to act now on bail out packages so the world does not see 1929 stock market crash of single day big enough to create 30's type depression and then onslaught of nuclear WW3.NYSE is many times worse sick now than it was just after 9/11.

    So,Mr Zardari, you really did good juggling on reconcilliations with Bush, Ahmadinejad and with leaders of Turkey,Afghanistan,Sri Lanka and many many others in UN.ZARDARI REALLY DID PROVE THAT HIS RECONCILLIATION MOODS AND MODES WERE NEEDED IN NEW YORK MORE IN THIS MOST DIFFICULT TIME THAN VISITING UNDERSTANDING BROTHERS IN CHINA WHO ALSO KNOW WHAT THE PRIORITIES ARE IN THIS NARROW AND DECISIVE TO ACT WINDOW OF HOPE AND SURVIVAL GAME MANSHIP FOR HUMAN RACE.IF THE BAIL OUT PACKAGE IN AMERICA IS NOT DONE IMMEDIATELY, THEN 1929's 80-90 PERCENT CRASH OF FINACIAL SYSTEM CAN FOLLOW THAT HAPPENED AFTER 1929.THEN, THERE WILL BE DEPRESSION LIKE OF THE 30'S WHICH ONLY WW2 COULD EXTRICATED THE WORLD OUT.

    THIS IS LESSON TO BE LEARNED BY ALL WORLD AND THE LESSON IS OF RECONCILLIATION AND TOLERATING THE FELLOW HUMAN.YOU JUST CANNOT LIVE NORMAL HUMAN LIFE BY HATING OTHERS AND DOING MAD TALKS OF NUKING THIS OR NUKING THAT OR HIM OR THEM.YOU CAN CURSE THE HIDDEN ENEMY,BUT YOU JUST CANNOT HATE THE PEOPLE IN SIGHT AND LIVE A NORMAL LIFE.INDIANS ARE DOING TO US PAKS IN PAK TOPIX FORUMS IN THOSE UGLY MOODS,AND EVEN THE MIGHTIEST ONES ARE RATTLING NUKES FOR THE ULTIMATE ARMAGEDDON OR TOTAL DEATH TO HUMANY.OUR ZARDARI WAS A PEACE MASSAGE MAN AND HE TALKED RE-CONCILLIATIONS AFTER RECONCILLIATIONS ABROAD AND AT HOME.HE WAS ACTING AS PILOT OF THE PEACE SHIP AT THE UN.

    I DON'T THINK THAT ANY ISSUE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN DRIVING OUT THE OVERCAST CHIMERA OF WW3 THAT WILL BE COMPLETE, THOROUGH AND RESOLUTE EXCHANGE OF NUKES AND ARMAGEDDON END OF HUMANITY.

    LET US ALL THINK AND ACT PEACE.IF FBI OF AMERICA CAN BE MADE TO HOLD IN ABAYANCE ANY FRAUD PROBE INTO THE LOOMING FINANCIAL FAILURE IN FAVOUR OF THE BAIL OUT PACKAGE BY BUSH AND SUPPPORTED NOW BY OBAMA AND MACAIN, THE WISDOM MAY ALREADY HAVE LANDED.THAT WISDOM WAS ALSO JUGGLED AROUND BY POLITICAL ACROBATING IN UN BY PAKISTAN'S ZARDARI.

    ZARDARI'S PAKISTAN WANTS TO TAKE THE PEACE LEAD IN DRIVING OUT THE CHIMERA OF WW3 OVERCAST NOW AND DO MITIGATING ACTS ON TERROR AS WELL.BUT BY FAR, THE BIGGEST THREAT IS THE FINANCIAL AND BANKING AND ECONOMY FAILURES WORLD WIDE WITH AMERICA ON THE LEAD.

    IN THESE VERY DIFFICULT TIMES AND AS MR ZARDARI SHOWED IN UN, PAKS ARE ON THE SIDE OF PEACE.LET NO MIGHTY ONES WALK INTO PAKISTAN LIKE RUSSIA AND GERMANY WALKED INTO POLAND TO CONFRONT EACH OTHER AND START REAL DEATH PHASE OF WW2.PAKISTAN HAS GIVEN ENOUGH SACRIFICES AS ZARDARI TOLD THEM ALL IN UN TODAY.

    PAKS LOVE PEACE.

    Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 25 September, 2008

    Pakistan needs help too

    With unanimus standing together of US presidential race candidates along with Bush on bail out or rescue package of US economy that had gone awefully sick for some time.With the done deal announced,NYSE started good advance after very sick wishy washy, rather downward sickly spiralling performance ever since the beginning of this year.

    American tax payers and of course some financing help from China's and middle east cash reserves also will kick in for the prop up.

    This is compromising process like the one Zardari has been juggling around in New York and at home.

    America will pump in 700 billion to 1 trillion dollars from its 14 trillion dollars economy to prop up the package.Russia is spending 100-150 billion dollars from its 2 trillion dollar economy to do the same.Iraq and Afghanistan have seen tens of billion dollars injected into their system.Pakistan got 10 billion dollars over 6-7 years,but petrol and fuel, just to keep military moving around,can eat up 1 billion dollars yearly very easily. American troops are spending 1 billion dollars on fuel for its only 30,000 troops in Afghanistan. Pakistan has 100000 troops moving around and petrol price is same for Paks as well as for Americans.Please do the math and see if Paks are spending frome home defence budget of 4-5 billion dollars yearly budget to top up only 1-1.5 billion dollars received yearly and that may be barely meeting the fuel cost of Pak troops being moved around for terror mitigation.

    Working the similar math that is being done by US or Russia for bail out cost, Paks also must be helped with 15-20 billion dollars as bail out or rescue package as Paks economy is 140-150 billion dollars size.

    Mr Zardari was acrobating his financial juggles with the Saudis, the Americans and the Chinese.All eyes are on China and Arabs as they are sitting on big cash and very litttle or no debt besides having their trade and budget surpluses.India has good forex reserves,but have as big or even bigger foreign and domestic debt besides having 100 billion dollars per year trade deficit.Even their forex and cash reserves are going down since the last several months.

    Saudis,UAE and other Arabs and America as well appeared to have promised help to Zardari as stabilized Pakistan is in the interests of the whole world and Paks have similar streeses eating into the economy.

    Musharraf was too shy to importune even for genuine help in the aftermath of 9/11.Let us not forget that all these problems are the brainchild of a waterloo type and status Afghan war that made America the sole super power.For every opportunity,there is a problem and for every problem,there is opportunity.Ottoman Turks lost half their male population in making and breaking of thir sole super power status.Still very sad, but America lost twin tower in New York and 3000 men.The 2 million dead as casualties were borne by Pashtoons of Paks and Afghanistan.

    Zardari was having historic re-union with Turks,Afghans and Persians besides doing acrobat warding off of looming WW3 dangers that are clearly overcast in the horizon.Pakistan needs money to prop up its economy that is under similar stresses. May be Zardari can get the genuine money halp of 15 billion dollars as Arabs and America and Chinese will be willing to help.Musharraf could have got lot more in the just after math of 9/11. But,urdu speaking Paks are too shy to importune for even genuine money.

    In 2003,I was spending some time in a resort in Kelowna BC with Hafiz Majid,who owns Huffaz seamless Pipe in Karachi and with Gordon Stockman,who used to be my boss and colligue at Alcan, Canada.Gord was advisor to ALBA in Bahrain at that time and now he is advisor to the future alluminum industry in Saudi Arabia.Hafiz Majid rightfully said and me and Gord enjoyed in what he said as such:

    "Our bahia Musharraf won't even ask Bush for money which was genuine. We all agreed that if Musharraf had really asked for, America would have paid enough to wipe out all or most of Paks external debt.Gordon Stockman was on leave from Bahrain.Gordon told me that like in Bahrain, he was making equivalent of 18 lakh rupees a month as advisor to Saudi Arabia.

    Well,we all including an other friend named Zafar Manzoor laughed at the joke Hafiz Majid had pulled out for then president Musharraf.We talked about the non importuning nature of our urdu speaking Paks for all three days and then Hafiz Majid went back to Karachi to take care of his seamless pipe mill in karachi,Pakistan.

    Let us hope that Zardari is different as he won't be shy about importuning for genuine help money.

    PAKISTAN HONESTLY DESERVES AND NEEDS THAT HELP AS PAKS HAVE SUFFERED MORE THAN ANY COUNTRY THERE BESIDES BEARING THE BRUNT OF TERROR ATTACKS.

    LET US ALL HOPE THAT MR ZARDARI DOES A GOOD JOB FOR GETTING THAT GENUINE MONEY TO PROP UP PAK ECONOMIES LIKE THE AMERICANS AND THE RUSSIANS HAVE JUST MADE IT DONE DEAL FOR THEMSELVES.

    PAKS ALSO NEED DONE DEAL.



    Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 26 September, 2008

    What Zardari can do

    Well, you don't apt to change leaders every day.The nation voted Zardari in and now he has to serve and act for the nation sincerely.Changing leaders too frequently brings chaos, anarchy and destabilizing of any country.

    What he has done so far is propping up of one camp that revolves around America,which is also needed as even our many rich Arab and Islamic nations will do more of us only if America asks them to do.Pakistan needs help from every where even when some sad things are happening in this America centered camp.

    One real bad and sad thing happening in this America centered camp was the US-India nuclear deal which could one day throw America out of its energy life line of middle east.Nuclear strengthened America could be told one day by India as such:

    "Sorry America, your time is over. It is now India's turn."

    After that, the fallen America would have its people seen as beggars in streets of Bombay and other places of Asia.Pakistan must seek China's help as China and Pakistan need each other for real need.Again, this need should be more leaning on financial development of Pakistan with energy oil and gas facilitation of China from middle east and with KK dominated trade between two countries.KK highway should be further developed to facilitate that trade.

    And some sad news is also developing rapidly about UAE, Bahrain etc.Saudi Arabia and Iran are yet too big to come under similar Indian drive.But UAE, Bahrain and some other smaller Sheikhdoms are rapidly going through the similar process of how Palestine was lost to the Israelis.Palestinians had started selling their country as parcels of homes, land parcels and small businesses set ups to the future Israeli's more than 100 years ago.Slowly, Palestine was bought up so much by the Jewish settlers that it had to be lost as most part. 1967 war happened only as jews had strong base already.

    UAE is exactly going through the same things. Besides having majority population there as Indian workers, they are selling homes, land and business parcels to the Indians, who will never be loyal and faithful to the now only 15 percent minority Arabs.Paks or Bangladeshis or other Arabs there in UAE from middle east countries could and will be definitely loyal and faithful and would never revolt or trouble the original Arabs.Even now, as I personally observed in UAE,the hindu employees there make sure wherever they can,that Paks do not come to UAE even as visitors.Well, Pakistan cannot help UAE, if they want to loose the Arab emirates the same way as Palestine lost their home land to Israelis.

    I think that Zardari, for the sake of Paks long term survival, must do the real cementing with China on his fortcoming trip.It was and is perfectly allright to prod and plead with America for help.But, it is even more important to embrace the long terme and future help that will come from our all weather reliable friend China,who is fast emerging to compete as super power and even replace America as sole super power some time in future.Pakistan's interest must be in seeking help and stay shy of dangers.

    On Zardari's trip, Pak people must enquire about the health of economic partnership relations with China.Every Pak has the right to ask about that 12 billion dollars development package that was being floated around Pakistan and included a world scale and class 5-6 billion dollars oil refinery near Gawader.

    China's trade channel through strait of Malaaca is getting to bolltle neck saturation level besides indicating some security and watch concerns.china is definitely looking for alternate backyard trade route to bring oil and gas energy from middle east.China's biggest in area, but only 1.4 percent populated province of Sinkiang is being out fitted to explot China's own biggest oil and gas reserves in Sinkiang besides bringing in energy from middle easat and central Asia.It is for economic and energy reasons only that Sinkiang has seen its Han Chinese population grow against Uygur Turkik muslims from only 6 percent in 1950 to almost 50 percent now.By 2030, due to oil and gas energy reasons within China and imports from Central Asia and from Middle East via Pakistan, Han Chinese population will be 75 percent or more as Chinese engineers and technocrats and related oil and gas processing businesses and pipeliners settle there in Kashgar, Urmqui, Hotan, Hami and other cities of Sinkiang.This will help China, Pakistan and the native Uygurs, Tajiks, Kirgiz and Uzbek muslims in Sinkiang.The economic uplift and rumbling of work ethics amongst the Sinkiang natives, who have been traditionally famous for pleasuring on their women will change to work environment.

    Zardari must be asking China for help as China may help Paks the most in future.

    GOOD LUCK TO ZARDARI AND GILANI ON THEIR FORTHCOMING VISIT TO CHINA.BEST OF WISHES AS YOU GO TO THE COUNTRY WHICH CAN AND WILL HELP PAKS THE MOST.

    AND CHINA IS SINCERE TO PAKISTAN AS ALL WEATHER FRIEND.
