A Quickie: Oh So Convenient

Taliban Leader Surrenders

MIANWALI: A self-claimed Ameer of Tahreek-e-Taliban Saraiki Hanif Gabol alias Maviya has handed over himself to Mianwali police, Geo News reported on Monday.

Police sources said that Hanfi Gabol belonged to Choti area of Dera Ghazi Khan. He joined Tahreek-e-Taliban (Hasan group) and appointed as Ameer of Saraiki lashkar to carry out terror activities. Under arrested, he claimed several terrorist incidents happened in different parts of Punjab.

Hanif Gobal was the mastermind of attack on Khosa House in Dera Ghazi Khan, police sources added. He admitted his involvement in terror acts in front of media and claimed that he is expert in making suicide jackets.

And this is just a day after the ‘news’ came out that:
Taliban are in Punjab now — officially

😉 😉 😉

P.S. About that Khosa House thingy, I of course have my own wild ‘conspiracy theory‘ 😉 😛

    Off Topic but relevant to us all.


    Iran has agreed a deal with Turkey & Brazil to hand over its enriched Uranium to Turkey. This means the US & Israel now have no excuse/basis for placing sanctions/attacking Iran.

    Well played to all three. I bet the Americans & Jews have egg on their face now. They are totally fucked because now they have no leg to stand on. Unless they do what they in the lead-up to the Iraq war and come up with a dodgy dossier/claim.

    Next step should be to disarm Israel of its nuclear weapons 😉

    “Taliban are in Punjab now — officially”

    People might already know this, but for those who might not, during the American Revolutionary War, that famous 1776 one, the colonists were often disguised wearing the British uniforms, and surprising the British disguised as one of their own.

    This idea of clothing an army in a different uniform, running a false-flag on a pirate ship, red teaming blue teaming an exercise with both working for the same bosses, etc. is not terribly new.

    The idea that the Taliban is just the imperial army in a different uniform, with a different categorie of recruits pertinent to the goal of that uniform, namely, lending credibility to “militant Islam”, is not very imaginative.

    Yet it escapes the ample imagination of Pakistanis.

    It is just a US-Taliban division, just like there is the US-Blackwater division. One to create the “insurgency”, the other to fight it with “counter-insurgency”, with the net effect of creating “revolutionary times” – for what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times.

    Seems like that 2012 story of Pakistan not looking the same on the world map is nearing fruition.

    Other than bitch-and-moan about this, what can be done?

    Good people simply refuse to believe that Taliban is the synthetic terror of the emperor. I have even invited my friends to learn from art, for often times, they say that art imitates life. So watching Star Wars Episode Revenge of the Sith, I thought might help make matters clear. But there appear to be few takers.

    What can be done? Should these propaganda mills be shut down for instance? We are giving free access to the public’s mind to those who are the harbingers of our misfortunes. This is the best covert-ops of them all – have people believing in freedom of this and freedom of that, and using all this freedom to bring to fruition Goethe’s insights: “none are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”.

    Has it become truly as thinkable for Pakistanis to rise up against their predicament as for sheep to collectively revolt against the habbit of mutton eating?

    If that’s the case, as empiricism indicates it might well be, what’s the point of a struggle – to save sheep from not being eaten? Let them have their fate as per their karma. But a shared karma it is! An iceberg can sink the ship – the upper deck, as well as the lower deck.

    We hit the iceberg of mental colonization a long time ago. Only its effect is now being made apparent.

    Correction to this sentence, the well known witticism is of course Bertrand Russell’s:

    Has it become truly as [un]thinkable for Pakistanis to rise up against their predicament as for sheep to collectively revolt against the habbit of mutton eating?

    I also don’t want to end on a pessimistic note in the previous comment – life is too short to be a pessimist – here is a link to a letter to Muslims
