Recently a new controversy was started by our sell out main stream media that Quaid-e-Azam forced Khan of Kalat (leader of Balochistan) into joining Pakistan, this is now being cleared by his grandson in this clip with mubashir luqman. Must watch.

When the Taliban insurrection in Pakistan began in earnest, in 2005, the Pakistan army did not have enough troops in North-West Frontier Province to combat the growing menace. It was not possible for the army and the paramilitary Frontier Corps to conduct operations without considerable reinforcement. In any event, the role of the lightly-armed Frontier Corps has always been more akin to policing than to engaging in conventional military operations. Dealing with inter-tribe skirmishes and cross-border smugglers is very different to combating organised bands of fanatics whose objective is total destruction of the state.

The British government today stepped up pressure for talks with more moderate elements of the Taliban as Afghanistan announced its first provincial ceasefire agreement with the militants.
The foreign secretary, David Miliband, said the insurgency was “divided”, with many of those fighting against international forces doing so for “pragmatic” rather than ideological reasons.
This is another example of the scare campaign that the American and the British [Am-Brit] media is busy waging against Pakistan.
Hizb al-Tahrir is a small British Muslim group. It is not only based in the UK but some of its members were granted political asylum by successive British governments. There have been reports that the British secret service MI6 has actually penetrated the group and succeeded in planting or recruiting agents to be used in their countries of origin.
The Hizb has always been peaceful and its members were never found involved in violence. But it is their position that all governments in Arab and Muslim nations need to be removed in order to establish a Muslim empire.
Nothing wrong with that. They’re free to believe in this and promote it peacefully. We have Israelis who believe in reviving the Kingdom of Israel from the Niles to the Euphrates. And we have Americans who believe America must wage wars in order to preserve its supremacy and end competition. And we have Indians who believe God is a monkey or a cow. So big deal if we have the Hizb.
‘Colonel Imam’, the ex-Pakistani agent who trained Mullah Omar and the warlords to fight the Soviets, says the US must negotiate with its enemies.
It is unlikely that anybody alive today knows the Afghans as well as Imam. All the key figures were trained in his camps, from the late Ahmad Shah Massoud, the Lion of Panj-shir, to warlords such as Gul-buddin Hekmatyar, his “naughtiest” student. “It was a matter of pride for me that my students later became big commanders,” he said.
Driving through the bazaar, I did a double take and looked again. Sure enough, there was this young man who looked like a ‘gora’(expatriate) — you can tell — sitting on a broken down bench in front of a rickety table with a plate of ‘daal’ and ‘naans’ on the side, enjoying the meal, with a curious bunch of people observing him, smiling broadly, looking at his bike parked nearby, trying to talk to him in broken English.
The hotel ‘management’ was keeping the younger boys at bay while catering to the young man’s requests. Curiosity got the better of me so I stopped to enquire and found out that Alex Linghorn is a British national making a stopover in Pakistan on his way home, doing it in as adventurous a way as possible before he settles down, gets married and has a family. Pakistan is the third of ten countries Alex is travelling through during his solo motorcycle trip from Nepal to his home in the UK. He was flushed from the heat, but had a heavy jacket, which he said is a ‘must’ along with gloves, for travelling on a bike as it can save you from injury if you have an accident — such as the one he had in India, getting just a few scrapes when he was knocked down by a truck. In his own words, “From the moment I crossed the Wahga border amidst a fanfare of triumphant parading,” — referring to the flag hoisting and folding ceremony — “I have been continually fascinated by this country. Over the last three weeks I have wandered the narrow streets of Lahore’s old city, captivated by the hundreds of tiny shops crammed with paraphernalia of all kinds sold by honest trades and experienced an exotic and unforgettable Sufi festival.”
- Pakistan owned 24-acre Kart-i-Parwan estate is considered to be one of the most prestigious assets in the Afghan capital.
- It housed Pakistan’s embassy till 1995 until it was moved to a rented property in another part of the city because of security reasons.
- British Government has repeatedly requested to buy this land from Pakistan in the last few years, offering $25m in 2006.
- Former President Musharraf repeatedly turned the British offers down, on the premise that the prestigious estate would be an asset when security situation improved and it would save nearly $1 million annually in rent.
- Zardari had been trying to push deal through for some time but the Foreign Office had serious reservations.
- Sale of the land has now been agreed for an undisclosed price between Zardari and the British High Comissioner.
…Not very big – or terrifying – or a plot, admit British Police.
As nine brown men were deported for having beards, the police blamed the Home Office, the Home Office blamed MI5 and MI5 warned everyone it could kill them with its thumb.
An inquiry will now be launched into why the prime minister was allowed to scare the sh*t out of everyone, though experts insist it may just have had something to do with the news agenda.
A police spokesman said: “We were hoping to charge them with conspiracy to go to the shops to buy crisps and Tizer, but according to our lawyers that that’s not an actual offence, as yet.
“We have therefore taken the precautionary step of sending these men and their potentially explosive beards back from whence they came.”
He added: “Come to think of it, Bob Quick must be absolutely f**king livid. Whadya reckon?”
A spokesman for home secretary Jacqui Smith said: “Embarrassed? No, we’re way, way beyond embarrassment at this stage.
“That’s a bit like asking a streaker if he’s embarrassed because he hasn’t shaved.”
ISLAMABAD: Pakistani authorities are interrogating a British national, James Alexander Mclintock, detained in Peshawar for alleged involvement in terrorist activities.
Mclintock had been illegally staying in Pakistan since Feb 2004 and was arrested a few weeks ago. This is the second time Mclintock had been arrested in Pakistan. He was previously detained in Dec 2001 on allegations of links with terrorism, but was repatriated to the UK in 2002 and was arrested in Manchester in 2003, only to be released soon after without charge. He then managed to sneak into Pakistan after his release and got involved in terrorist activities.
Is this just the tip of an iceberg? Why was Mclintock released by the British Authorities after being handed over to them by Pakistan following his arrest on links with terrorism in Pakistan? Why was he allowed to move to Afghanistan and then sneak into Pakistan? Is Mclintock an undercover operative? Are British agencies involved in carrying our terrorist activities in Pakistan?
It may be worth looking back at Basra, February 19th 2005 when British tanks and helicopter gunships stormed a police station to ‘liberate’ two SAS soldiers.
The soldiers, apparently working undercover, had been arrested after they failed to stop at an Iraqi police roadblock and opened fire instead, killing one and wounding another Iraqi policeman.
The two men were dressed in traditional Arabic dress and the car was loaded with weapons including assault rifles, a light machine gun, an anti-tank weapon, radio gear, an SAS-issue medical kit. The car itself was apparently full of exposives and booby trapped.
General Petraeus’ Afghan ‘surge’ is an attempt to whack the Taleban round the head because they will not negotiate unless they are hurting. This is, broadly speaking, what Henry Kissinger believed of the Vietcong in 1968. The US increased troop numbers to drive them to the table to make concessions.
Rory Stewart has witnessed both our major conflicts. Here, in an extract from a speech at Chatham House, he suggests a new way forward.
At the current rate, the US is unlikely to ever get out of Afghanistan with anything resembling success. After more than 7 years at war there, the Afghan Army is reported to have only a single battalion (far less than a thousand soldiers) who can operate independently. Incredible.

A man working at the football stadium reminisced fondly about the old days when executions happened on the pitch. If capital punishment was still common, he said, the new government wouldn’t be so crooked. This was something I would hear repeatedly, until eventually it was said by Afghans across the country. The police were the worst offenders, looking for bribes at every opportunity to supplement their low wages. Another Kandahari had joined the Taliban as a teenager in the 1990s. “At that time we were very happy,” he said. “It was like we were very poor and had suddenly found a lot of money.” Talibs are good people and they can never be beaten, he continued. Now they have no choice but to fight because otherwise the Americans will send them to Guantanamo Bay. Most importantly for the future, he revealed that a number of local religious clerics had just declared a jihad.
A correspondent looks back at the deterioration across the country over the past four years: the resurgence of both the Taliban and the old corrupt elites, the failure of the occupation forces, and the worsening conditions of life for everybody else.
December 19, 2008 (LPAC)–The British-Pakistani terrorist who was tried and convicted for the kidnapping and murder of reporter Daniel Pearl, was identified as an MI-6 agent in 2006 by the then-President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf.
The British-born terrorist in question, Omar Saeed Sheikh, is also featured in the article by Jeffrey Steinberg, “Shut Down Anglo-Saudi Global Terror Apparatus Behind Mumbai Attack,” appearing on the LPAC website and the Dec. 19 issue of EIR.
