Pope Summons Nawaz-Zardari

The old and frail Pope lay dying in the hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people of the world. He motioned for his nurse to come near. "Yes, Father?" said the nurse.

"I would really like to see Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif before I die,” whispered the priest.

"I'll see what I can do, Father," replied the nurse. The nurse sent the request to them and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived. Zardari and Nawaz Sharif would be delighted to visit the Pope.

As they went to the hospital, Nawaz commented to Zardari "I don't know why the old man wants to see us, but it will certainly help our images."

Zardari couldn't help but agree. When they arrived at the Pope’s room, the Pope took Zardari’s hand in his right hand and Nawaz Sharif's hand in his left. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old Pope’s.

Finally Nawaz spoke. "Holy Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?"

The old Pope slowly replied "I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."

The old priest continued, "He died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same."

None Of Your Business, Mr. Qureshi

I hope all Pakistanis have by now heard the latest joke: That our Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has called on the government of Burma to release opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi from jail.

This story is especially relevant to the 1.5 million Pakistanis who are sleeping in the wilderness now thanks to the anti-Pakistan scheming of the Americans and their poodles [Britain, Karzai, India] in Afghanistan. Mr. Qureshi has no time to raise the issue of the weapons and money coming from Afghanistan to the terrorists inside Pakistan. No, he has no time for this. But he has all the time in the world to worry about Ms. Kyi's health. What a compassionate man.

Here's my reaction on the statement: Ha ha ha ha ha.

No really.

What is Pakistani Foreign Minister's business in calling for the release of Burma's opposition leader?

Was Mr. Shah Mahmood Qureshi bored of the myriad foreign policy problems facing Pakistan that he chose to make a statement that obviously is none of our business and only seeks to appease Washington and London?

Burma's government has decided to put the lady opposition leader on trial because she basically is a tool in the hands of US and UK, the Am-Brit brigade. She is a tool pretty much like Foreign Minister Qureshi's own government and his own boss, President Zardari.

This partially explains why Mr. Qureshi stuck his nose where it doesn't belong.

But there is another explanation.

Burma's government has excellent relations with China and Pakistan, and not with the Am-Brit brigade, US and UK. The free press in Washington and London keeps the story of Ms. Suu Kyi alive because this way they keep the pressure on Burma's government. The usual pretext of human rights and democracy is used for this Am-Brit interference.

Pakistan supports the government of Burma since we have no problem with them and it is none of our business what they do to the lady opposition leader who's basically an American poodle, or ... I'm sure you get what the appropriate word here is.

The only reason I can think of that made Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi issue this unusual statement is because that's what Washington wants.

This would also be a clear signal to Beijing that Islamabad is firmly in the US orbit. The Burmese government would also be in a shock because they thought Pakistan supported them since like us they are also sick and tired of Indian arrogance and often take joy in cutting India down to size in their own ways.

Mr. Qureshi had more urgent business to attend to than to interfere in Burma's internal matters. Besides the issue the of American double game against Pakistan in Afghanistan, Mr. Qureshi should have been more concerned about the statement issued by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization [SCO] and by a Russian official on Pakistan's nuclear arsenal. The statement basically endorsed the Am-Brit [American-British] propaganda on the safety of Pakistan's strategic weapons.

This appears to be an urgent business that begs Mr. Qureshi's attention. But no. Mr. Qureshi and his US puppet government is more interested in appeasing its masters in Washington.

India Defeated In Sri Lanka

The Indian-backed terrorism and insurgency in Sri Lanka has finally been defeated.

Like the Pakistani military, the Sri Lankans have come to realize that this is not a civil war. This is a foreign-backed trouble. The funniest part of Indian-backed terrorism in Sri Lanka is that it was quite clear where the money, arms and support was coming from. The terrorists were cornered in a tip of the island closest to the southern part of India. No matter how hard the Sri Lankan military pounded these terrorists, they would come back the next day with more weapons. A couple of times the terrorists returned with small planes!

So the Sri Lankan military did what the Pakistani military is doing now. First, both recognized that terrorism is not indigenous. It is supported from the outside. In Pakistan's case, it was backed from the Afghan soil, where there is a growing Indian military and intelligence presence under the guise of humanitarian work fully backed by Pakistan's true allies, the Americans and the Brits.

So the Sri Lankans defeat and kill India's terrorists. This should give hope to the long suffering people of Kashmir, where the Indian army and Indian soldiers have become 'freewheeling rapists', attacking Kashmiri women as a last resort to break the will of the Kashmiri men who want freedom from India at all costs.

The freedom movement in Kashmir is one of the world's most impressive examples of a people's desire for freedom. The mainstream media in Ameirca and Britian, which is full of government poodles and peddlers of lies and deceit, does not cover the atrocities in Kashmir because that hurts the image of their new slave-soldier in Asia, India, whom they want to use against China and as a source for cheap soldiers in Afghanistan to stabilize the faltering American occupation there.

If the Sri Lankans can do it, so can the Kashmiris.

Well Done Jamaat Al-Daawa

There are reports that medical and rehabilitation teams from Jamaat Al-Daawa, the Kashmiri organization that used to be active in support of their kin in Indian-occupied Kashmir, have surfaced to help the hundreds of thousands of Pakistani refugees fleeing the terror of insurgents pouring in from Afghanistan, backed by anti-Pakistan forces there.

The pro-U.S. Zardari government conspired with the Americans after the Mumbai attacks to have Jamaat al-Daawa banned by the UN without any evidence that could stand in a court of law. The Zardari government was also ready to include the names of respected Pakistani personalities in the UN list had it not been for some members within the government who feared widespread popular backlash. [See To Zardari-Gilani-Qureshi-Durrani: Why Humiliate Pakistan? ]

Daawa's military wing was disbanded in 2004 under the orders of the military government of Pervez Musharraf. To sustain its cadre and the families of the martyrs who died fighting Indian occupation soldiers in Kashmir, Daawa transformed its entire operations into social work. And they excelled at it, first in the massive Kashmir earthquake in 2005, then in 2008, and now in the refugee camps of Pakistanis in Mardan and Swabi in NWFP.

Daawa's largesse has included Pakistani Hindus whose villages in Pakistan's Sindh province faced drought. When the UN banned Daawa, Pakistani Hindus came out to protest the decision because it resulted in the closure of schools that were being run by Daawa for the community [see picture at top, also check Pakistani Hindus Rally To Support Jamaat al-Daawa ].

If not for the capitulation of the Zardari government, Daawa could not have been banned by the UN based on the half-cooked evidence that the Indians came up with.

Someone might ask: Why do I want Pakistan to have groups like Jamaat Daawa?

For one, most of them are either Pakistanis, or Kashmiris, or both. And that makes them our own.

Second, they did very well in Kashmir in support of the people suffering the largest concentration of brutal occupation forces anywhere, where Indian soldiers are virtual rapists on the loose to punish the Kashmiris for wanting to be free of Indian occupation.

Third, we need people like Jamaat Daawa to end their social work and revert back into their original role of resistance groups and go back into Indian occupied Kashmir, with Pakistan's support, to make life miserable once again for Indian soldiers. This would be the right thing to do now since India is blocking Pakistan's water from Kashmir and is sending terrorists and saboteurs from Afghan soil to spread mayhem inside Pakistan, disguised as 'Pakistani Taliban' and God knows what else.

In this regard, Mr. Zardari's government will do well to heed the advice of Mr. Majeed Nizami, the president of the Nawai Waqt Media Group. He advised the government to start sending Kashmiri and Pakistani resistance fighters back into Indian occupied Kashmir. His reasoning is valid. The Indians have grown arrogant because of our apologetic attitude since we've given them a pass on so many issues under the prodding of our fake allies, the Americans.

Time to rollback Pakistani concessions.

Roxana Saberi And The Am-Brit Media Lies

Since 2007, two nations – Britain and the United States – have been mounting a venomously anti-Pakistan campaign with variations on a single theme: Pakistan is falling apart, the nukes could fly around, Taliban will take over, and Pakistan needs the saviors, an Anglo-American military intervention to save the day.

The campaign has been based entirely on conjecture and insinuations that eerily match the latest U.S. plans for Pakistan. The more Washington talked about Pakistan’s double game, more ‘Pakistani Taliban’ and other shady terrorists and insurgents crossed from Afghanistan to terrorize Pakistanis and attack the military.

The Am-Brit media campaign against Pakistan is as colorful as the one run by the same Anglo-American media against Iraq before the invasion, all of course based on outright lies, doctored pictures and CIA-planted stories. None of these Am-Brit news organizations ever apologized later for becoming a tool in the hands of the CIA, the U.S. military and the U.S. government.

And just as in Iraq’s case, this campaign against Pakistan is exclusively an Am-Brit campaign, meaning that no one else is involved in running it except the Americans and the Brits. The occasional role of the Indian poodle doesn’t count. You don’t see the German media, or the Spanish, Italian, Swiss, Finnish, Russian, Chinese, Saudi, or any other media in any other country mounting this campaign.

It’s an Am-Brit operation. People in the military call it psy-ops, short for psychological operations.

The masterpiece in this regard was the October 2007 Newsweek cover story that decided that Pakistan and not Iraq was the most dangerous place on earth today [conveniently overlooking Iraq and Afghanistan were American and British secret ‘death squads’ were busy in murdering Iraqis.]

The latest masterpiece is BBC’s report released recently where BBC has concluded, while sitting in London, that only 38% of the NWFP province is in fact under Pakistan’s sovereign control.

Two weeks ago, it was CNN’s turn. It made the fall of Islamabad in the hands of a few terrorists the lead story for two days, raising a global scare. Then the Pakistani military strongly protested at this scare campaign which was false. That’s when the U.S. puppet Zardari government in Islamabad, and Mullen, Petraeus, Clinton, Holbrooke and the rest of the Obama admin came out to deny this and feign ignorance about the origin of these lies being feverishly peddled by the Am-Brit media.

According to BBC’s findings, a disorderly bunch of terrorists have suddenly defeated the world’s sixth largest standing army, and a professional one at that, and are now almost in control of one of the four federating Pakistani provinces.

And what was BBC’s source for this story that most Pakistanis missed in their own country? Well, 18 months of news reports filed by BBC correspondents from areas within Pakistan where terrorism incidents have occurred. BBC’s strategists concluded that this was ample proof the territory was no longer under Pakistani control.

What is the purpose of these scare stories in the Am-Brit media? Well, London and Washington have been keen to hide the massive failures in their Afghan occupation and seize the opportunity to move the war into Pakistan and punish the Pakistanis for supporting the Afghan Taliban [the real Taliban] and for not accepting the great Am-Brit wider plan of turning the Pakistani army into a local police force, contain the nuclear weapons, and allow India to become the new regional Am-Brit slave-soldier in charge of Am-Brit interests.

No one in the Am-Brit media talks about the money and weapons that these terrorists inside Pakistan are receiving from ‘someone’ in Afghanistan. This is how Pakistan has been destabilized in less than four years. Have you heard about organized terrorists armed with anti-aircraft guns killing Pakistanis and fighting the Pakistani military before 2005?

The BBC story fits in perfectly with scores of reports, op-ed pieces, statements and intensive public brainstorming on the U.S. think-tank circuit on how Pakistan’s different ethnic groups should be made to fight with each other in order to hasten the collapse of the Pakistani state.

Just to conclude with the BBC story. The BBC report ended with a statement from a correspondent in Islamabad warning that it would be inaccurate to say Pakistan has lost control of its territory because the terrorists are not an organized entity and are made up of small groups mounting hit and run attacks and so there’s no need to exaggerate.

Wow, BBC.

So after creating a stir, the report is concluded with an exit that allows for a retraction in the future.

And so the Am-Brit media lies continue. Read them with a pinch of salt next time.

P.S. Roxana Saberi, an American journalist, has just been released. While the Americans would have us think she was this poor truth seeker imprisoned by a dictatorial regime in Iran, the real truth comes out to show, again, how the Am-Brit media is a willing and ready tool of the Am-Brit intelligence and military. In 2003, Ms. Saberi, then an Iranian citizen, apparently worked in Iran as a translator in a government department that dealt with national security issues. Now, six years later, she was sent to Iran as a U.S. journalist. She worked her contacts to get hold of classified documents and was naturally going to hand them over to CIA. That's how she was arrested. Not a journalist but definitely shown as one, courtesy of one of America's 'free' media organizations for sure.

Naveen And Olmert

This comes a couple of weeks late because of the pressing situation in and around Pakistan. The Kazakh government hosted the annual Eurasia Media Forum in Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan.

This media forum is fascinating mainly because it is not a western [read 'British-American'] take on international issues. The Kazakh forum approaches the issues from a wider, internationalist perspective. This means, for example, that the war in Georgia last year was debated from both the Russian and the western angles instead of just the Georgian perspective that was heavily promoted by the American and the British media.
So it was refreshing to watch Naveen Naqvi, a Pakistani journalist who works for Dawn News, give a tough time to the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as she interviewed him via a satellite link. At least twice Mr. Olmert paused, appeared at a loss for words, and repeated twice smilingly, 'You are a smart, you are smart.'
Mr. Olmert couldn't stop himself from trying to soften Naveen by appealing to her ego. He kept sending subtle flirty signals and at one point expressed the desire to meet Naveen and have tea with her. But the beautiful and tough Pakistani lady wouldn't budge. Click below to see a clip of the event from my cell phone. The quality is not good but the entire Naveen-Olmert interaction will be posted at the PakNationalists Channel on Youtube very soon.

The debate over Georgia was itself very fascinating. Alexey Nikolov [pictured on this page with me and the Leonardo DiCaprio lookalike] who is the deputy editor of Russia Today television network, handed to me a DVD that showed how footage of Russian tanks filmed by one of his cameramen was used out of context by CNN as evidence that Russian forces were invading Georgia.

I was invited to speak as a panelist on media and blogs. But fun started when a senior official from OSCE, which is kind of an offshoot of NATO countries in Eurasia, began his remarks with a pressure tactic against the host government. The Rep almost condemned a bill that the Kazakh parliament is debating on regulating political blogging. My response turned the whole session into a trial of western interference in other nation's domestic issues. My argument was simple: The Americans and the Brits [The Am-Brits] destabilized Pakistan through interference in our local politics. They shouldn't be allowed to do the same to Kazakhstan. [Click here to check out clips from the session. The sound quality is low and the full version will be posted soon.]

The Leorardo DiCaprio lookalike [real name Ruslan Zhemkov] is a close aide to Dr. Dariga Nazarbayeva, the daughter of the Kazakh president and a stateswoman in her own right. Zalmay Khalilzad and Richard Holbrooke both call him Leonardo during their frequent trips to Kazakhstan. Those frequent trips are in themselves an interesting subject of a new column I'll be writing shortly.

I leave you here with a photo with Dr. Dariga Nazabayeva, daughter of the President, and Alex Kogen, a journalist from Israel.

Tweet This!

I checked out Twitter, the latest online sensation. And here’s my review:
I mean, really, who has the time to ‘follow’ ten bozos whose life revolves around, ‘Hey, just landed in Bucharest today. Great weather’ and ‘I think I’m constipated. Will see a doctor later.’

I mean, DUH!

But if you watch CNN and follow the U.S. military, you’d think Twitter is the best thing to happen to mankind since The Flintstones invested the wheel. See how CNN is feverishly marketing Twitter. Someone should tell them it’s looking silly now. They ‘insert’ Twitter into stories where this thing is completely irrelevant. And you wonder why they’re doing this. A friend of mine who is a famous anchor at CNN told me the management there is really pushing all anchors to use Twitter and shut down Facebook and other social networking accounts. Really, this is no exaggeration. The next thing we’ll hear Larry King tweeting from the toilet. I don’t event want to think about it.

So CNN’s parent company might have a commercial interest here. That’s what I said to myself. Until the US military jumped in the fray.

This is what CENTCOM did: It flew the management of Twitter to Iraq to introduce them to the Arab tribal chieftains. And then CNN came out with this big story about how big a deal this was: Twitter in Iraq?! I mean here’s the story about how America lifted Iraq from the Stone Age into the 21st Century’s Twitter Civilization! Now everyone in Iraq will live happily ever after.

And you should’ve seen this Twitter co-founder acting like this cool ‘inventor’ who is doing humanity a favor by taking out a few days out of his previous work to introduce Iraq to Twitter. [Before landing in Iraq, he was obviously busy in tweeting, ‘Guess what guys, flying to Iraq. See u in Baghdad’ and ‘We just met Abdul Mohammed. Told him about Twitter. Blown away.’

So why is CNN and the US military promoting Twitter? It’s a funny idea. Some people might like it. But, really, who cares?

Here’s what the truth about Twitter:
Apparently more than 60 percent of Twitter users fail to return the following month and pre-Oprah more than 70 percent of Twitter users failed to return to the site according to David Martin, Vice President, Nielsen Online.”

Someone should tell this to CNN. And to US military too.
