Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Saudi Arab.....?

Tunisia down. Egypt down. At least the USA and Israel friendly president is gone, not the US friendly army. But someone has gone after 30 years. That alone should make Egyptians very happy indeed. Now Libya is in full swing. Over 200 protesters have been shot dead within these last 3 days or so. Al Jazeera website is reporting that foreign mercenaries, using high grade weapons, may be involved in indiscriminate shootings at the funeral yesterday. There is a point here: No good Muslim soldier or policeman would ever dare fire at the Muslim funeral. But a Christian or a Jew just might. I think this report is credible enough to demand world attention. After all, Mr. Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, the Libyan President, has been an American stooge since last so many years one can't just keep count on him. And his most strange habit of keeping women guards, pitching his tents wherever he travels to and his Ukranian nurse having big breasts, is all too well known now. But what should be very clear is that far from being an American enemy number 1, he is their friend. For their sake, he has kept his own people below poverty line, sold out his vast oil reserves to dubious Western companies, and has betrayed the trust of his fellow Muslims. For this alone this man and his entire cabinet should be dismissed and a trial held. I am really surprised that still there are people left - and they appear to be in thousands - who can still demand revolution. They are dying, falling like soldiers in a Hollywood movie, asking for a change. Libya's President must be very angry for he has surely ordered every protester dead. They are not shooting rubber bullets anymore, if we understand running commentary over Al Jazeera tweets, they are shooting real bullets and killing everyone in their way. This is a great tumultuous time for the embattled Middle East and the greatest puppet of them all, King of Saudi Arab (a Najdi not a Hashmite, mind you) must be very much concerned for his own throne, which was gifted to his ancestors by the scheming British spies displacing Ottoman overlords. Now it is a reversal time. USA, Israel and Europe, whose friends these bloody dictators have been all the way, are now being replaced. And I am sure CIA, MI6,7,5 or Mossad would be looking for newer, fresher puppets to replace the old stooges.

Killing our intelligence agents is not an option

I agree with the people who suggest that Raymond Davis killed our intelligence agent operatives, who have been noting his movements within the densely populated Mozang area of Lahore. The question is: What was this so-called American diplomat with the wrong number plate and unlicensed gun doing in that area? What on Earth this diplomat was thinking? Are all Pakistanis fool. They don't know what law is. I mean he killed those two men, took their photographs from his camera and was about to run away when police came about. Agreed, we are almost a banana state with the very green banana president. But this is not how things work out. You have killed our men and you shall pay with the blood. This is cold blooded murder.

Let us go back to the events of the day and see why he may have killed them. My opinion in this is as follows: These two men, probably belonging to IB or ISI and surely not from MI, have been noting his movements in the city of Lahore and perhaps in Peshawar. They must have known that he was trying to make contacts with perhaps some terrorist outfits to carry out sabotage of important structures within the city. Please note that few weeks ago our Gen. Ashfaq Kiyani had very clearly told the Americans they must not try to destabilize his country and he had pointed out the bombing at Data Darbar in Lahore to whip the communal anger between the followers of Barelvi and Deobandi school of thought as an example. Probably this man now called Davis (and I hope it is his real name) was into some sort of terrorism plot being hatched or previously hatched to destabilize Pakistan. And he had been documented by these two bike riders (probably also photographed). Now, that he had seen them he shot them in what has been properly described as cold blooded murder by our government and court. If Davis had not killed them probably his career as the defense contractor (?) would have been over, atleast in Pakistan. So he killed them and would have thought of it as a non-issue but unfortunate for him people of Pakistan are not yet dead. They got hold of him. I still wonder why did they not kill him there and then, by sticks and stones or whatever. Why wait for the court when you know who the killer is. Perhaps, we still have some belief left in the wisdom of the courts. Perhaps. Now read below what these killers of humanity are upto.

These American mercenaries (freelance killers of common men and women) are found on almost all the places where Americans want to rule and want to dictate terms. Their largest numbers are now found in three Muslim countries: Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. These same freelancers are found in Sudan, Indonesia, Saudi Arab, Syria and Egypt, where they have often outsourced torture. These contractors, part of the growing Billion dollar business, have freedom to act as they like. They have been previously charged for raping young girls in Iraq and in Japan. Cases were proved but nothing came from it. Let us see whether our courts and our FO has the ball to hold on to this case. If they hold the American pressure, they will bring honour to the nation. But if this man is allowed to run away, Zardari & Co. will be in deep trouble.

Now the scenario which may develop:

1) Best case: He is hanged and his body handed over to the American embassy. Americans block Pakistan aid. Gen. Kiyani calls off all wars and stops all NATO items going to Afghanistan, thus putting brakes to American war in Afghanistan.

2) Worst case: Davis is allowed to leave at midnight. Nation wakes up and realizes they have been short changed. Complete strike across country. Chaos reigns. Someone tries to blow up American embassy in Islamabad and someone else tries to blow up the main gate of American consulate in Karachi.

Let me tell you one thing. For sure these lads killed by this American bastard were civilian spies belonging perhaps to IB. And if Davis is let out by Zardari govt. General Kiyani won't be happy. So it is better that Zardari and Gilani just allow courts to function properly. Americans would pay millions in bribe to get him out because it is not about one American in Pakistani jail, it is about one white macho American being tried by the democratically elected Banana state. What shame that would be for the overlords in Washington. Obama surely is counting his days in office!

Davis to be released soon: FO

Yes sir, I will personally drop your citizen and killer of my citizens at your doorstep. I am sorry we had to keep him for so long just for killing our useless Pakistanis. In any case Pakistanis are killed by your good drones. I am sorry and so is my President for holding your Highly Honourable Citizen. Please don’t worry about our courts. And just forget our media and our people. Sorry again.

(I imagine our worthless minister for nothing, Mr. Rehman Malik saying such things to US delegation which visited Pakistan yesterday to demand immediate release of this CIA agent.)

Well done, Democracy.

Hingol National Park, Balochistan

Sometimes you have to climb high to get an idea of what the things below look like. Photography is not always done on the flat land. You dive or you climb to capture the fascination of this world. Same thing here happened. I had to go deep into the river valley and then climb these mud mountains to get the view. It was well worth the effort.

Portrait: Baloch, Hingol

Balochistan is the largest province of Pakistan and yet it is most under-rated and underdeveloped. Gen. Musharraf, during his reign as President of the country, built roads' network and extensively developed Gawadar Port but also deployed his army to kill Bughti, most charismatic of the Nawabs. This caused widespread resentment amongst the people of this province which has only grown in recent years.

This young man, hailing from Hingol national park, told me that he has never ever seen the main road (a mere 80 Km from where this shot was taken). Similar people live in this national park and off course he did not know about Musharraf or Zardari or the presently running Baloch freedom movement.
