Pakistan Floods, Corrupt President Zadari Could Not Careless for Pakistanis

Politics / Pakistan Aug 07, 2010 - 05:12 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Whilst Pakistan drowns with over 2,000 dead and 14 million displaced by the worst floods in its history, the so called President of Pakistan remains sat in England as part of his political tour of Europe so as to bolster his political support and funds.


Zadari's behaviour is inline with his corrupt character that saw him languish for 12 years in prison for corruption. Zadari came to Pakistan's throne following out pouring of grief at the assassination of Benazair Bhutto in 2008, which illustrates the dynastic nature of Pakistani politics where the best for the job rarely if ever get elected with the military always waiting to swoop from the wings to seize power as has occurred many times over Pakistan's 63 years existence.

Last week David Cameron criticised Pakistan for duplicity with the regards the Taliban and terrorism, this is in ignorance of the fact of the high price that Pakistan is paying for the U.S. war in Afghanistan for the past 9 years that has led to the deaths of more than 1,000 Pakistani soldiers and 10,000 civilians. So instead of the Pakistani President slapping David Cameron's ignorance (who does not even know Britain's WW2 history) down by rebuking him publically with statements such as that his own wife was assassinated by Taliban terrorists so he does not need to preached at by a public school toff, instead Zadari is seen to be shaking hands with Cameron acting more like a poodle than a president.

Zadari's actions speak that he is only motivated by self interest and in this regard to promote his son to the presidency. Which means that the country is ripe for another military coup if it has not already taken over the country in all but name.

I would imagine the only item left on Zadari's itenary would be to visit Croydon to apply for a British Passport, at least then the Pakistani's would be free of the Zadari scourge and start to rebuild the country after the worst floods in its history.

In the meanwhile the death toll and destruction escalates as the flood waters flow into the ever more populated areas whilst the mainstream press obsesses over Super Model Campbell's blood diamond antics.

Mr. 10%

Even Benazir knew whilst she was PM then, that her hubby was called Mr.10% in those days of late 80ss n early 90ss!! It is the British Govt. who gave the couple the sanctury whilst she was ousted and Imran Khan was trying to make some good of the country, that Bhutto family ruled and governed from Mayfair!! Be it John Major. Tony Blair or Brown, we feed the Zardaris!!
