The Big Elephant is Sleeping while Naxalites are Creeping

Zulfiqar Mirza

Zulfiqar Mirza has nailed MQM down

Zulfiqar Mirza has done what two army operations in Karachi were unable to accomplish. He is successful where Imran Khan more or less failed.

Team Obama Delivers Pakistan Bomb: Countdown Begins

Pace of events post OBL killing has outpaced everyone, and there shouldn’t be another opinion on this point. The guy haunted millions in his life, and to carry his legacy of “terror” has done the same thing in his death.
