For last two weeks all he his doing are PC. It is time for actions: we need more than words.
Endgame in Pakistani politics
The endgame has begun in Pakistani politics. The military’s statement today criticising the government of constitutional impropriety and warning of “serious ramifications” and “potentially grievous consequences for the country”, et al is ominous.
The PPP leadership appears to have concluded that its time is up and it is also therefore raising the ante by dismissing defence secretary Khalid Naeem Lodhi, who is a retired lieutenant-general. The blow at Lodhi is a warning to the army chief Ashfaq Kayani as well that the government isn’t blinking, and might not hesitate to sack him and the ISI chief, too, if push comes to shove.
The PPP leadership is making this an issue of Pakistan’s future as democracy and it hopes to play up the issue for gaining ’sympathy votes’ in any parliamentary elections, which now seem a matter of time. By turning the guns at the top brass, PPP leadership also hopes to distract attention from the stricture by the Supreme Court and an ensuing scruff that isn’t going to do much to the party’s image, which is already tarnished.
The PPP is badly cornered and a lifeline from Nawaz Sharif is the only hope but it is unlikely. It’s altogether a bad scene with the executive and the judiciary and the military locking horns in a 3-way tussle. The only way out seems early polls so that a new government with a fresh mandate takes over and the judiciary and the military can turn over a new leaf.
Much of the blame falls on President Asif Zardari. Put simply, he has finally fallen victim to the politicking that he endlessly spawned. Sharif was his natural ally and woe to anyone who can’t distinguish allies from foes.
The implications of the endgame are serious for Afghanistan. The US isn’t helping matters, either. The drone attacks have resumed after a gap of some 8 weeks. The US seems to estimate that the rupture in US-Pak ties cannot be repaired in the short term in any case and, therefore, the business of war must go on. Fortunately, India-Pakistan relations are free of tensions.

Unfortunately this endgame never ends. The same game is played again and again, the cycle continues only the characters/ faces change. At the end, the country ends up going backwards. I wish we come into our senses and do what is right for the country and not for personal ego.
The funny part was that Imran said "momin aik sooraakh say do(2) dafa nahin dassaa jaataa" and then said that N league have already duped them twice(2)
A suggestion to IK stop playing with words now is the time to do something, either stand with judiciary and save army or just talk against pmln and pppp and practically do nothing.
Because the history wont forgive those who are trying to destroy Pakistan either by helping the ones who are destroying and by just talking infront of public and doing nothing.
Pakistan and Islam is there to stay if they wont do it Allah will choose someone else to do it.
