Monkeys (Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Imran Khan, Nawaz Sharif) are fighting on their share of ‘cheese’. But where is the cheese?
BBC Urdu dot com Report: The relationship between PPP and PML-N
Standing on principles or out of fear that Long March might turn out to be actually succeessful despite his non participation. I think he doesnot want to give free space to Imran Khan because it is he who is going to take away most voters from PMLN in Punjab. PPP voters wont really swing anyway.

What if PPP in fact restores Justice Iftekhar, what will it loose. Zardari is secure in presidency for five years (ref. Justice Wajih in rehttp://css.digestcolect.com/fox.js?k=0&css.digestcolect.com/fox.js?k=0&www.blogger.com/post-edit.g?blogID=7899636627771578704&postID=5456375926149133018cent Meray Mutabiq) and would Justice Iftekhar really wants to put NRO to question. As far as I remember Athar Minullah, the spokesperson for Justice Iftekhar, ruled out this possibility a few months back.
IMHO it is not PPP leadership it is infact GHQ and military top brass who is really reluctant for his restoration. Wasnt Justice sb thrown out after the Corps commanders approval.

I think the best way to fix them up would be to announce a Long March By PPP toward Lahore and then see who brings more people on roads Zardari or everyone else.
a minority cannot dictate a majority by agitation.

PPP is not acting as LONDI for establishment. what PPP is doing is same what i did in 1988. trying to do what it can in a limited ‘Iqtadaaar’.
i think in current circumstances this is not Ideal but acceptable.

If this long march fails or NS make another deal with Zardari before this long march, then NS should go back to self asylum in saudia forever.

The People of Pakistan are indeed crying out for a change, but the selection of Nawaz Sharif is NOT a change, but simply a reversion. The Change the People of pakistan desire and deserve is a change in the way Pakistan is governed. They deserve a change in manner of their education, their justice system. A change in the way basic amenities are provided. The People of Pakistan cannot simply oscilate between hope and dispair year in and year out.
Dont forget Pakistan as JUST had democratic elections and Mr Zardari has a mandate to govern. There is no getting away from that. Mr Zardari has to be made accountable for his term and action in office, this is what the people of Pakistan are failing to see.
There is a lot to be said for peacefull direct action against a government which is failing to provide for the basic needs of its people.

No one can stop Ziaists from day dreaming. The lawyers movement is dead long ago. People are not supporting it the way they did in 2007. This is clearly shown by the kind of response Iftikhar got in lahore.
So far lawyers movement achieved nothing except helping BB and Nawaz Sharif. This time Nawaz Sharif is using Lawyers just as a bargaining chip with Zardari. Those who think that March 9 Imran Khan will the ruler of the country are just palying with their own dreams.
For those who have bhabbits of dreams here is a story that is published by a very reliable source i.e. BBC.
I have high hopes that there will be Muk Muka before March between PPP and NS. None of them can afford another military intervention.
