Surely a sad day for us all

SA Tribune is run out of Washignton DC by the former The News Editor who was forced to quit due to army Pressure in 2002, he now runs this journal which has recorded 44 million hits in its career.
The recent artile I cam across was of the NAB chief harassing Farooq Jangda to exhort 53 Million for Shehzad Ali Khan - who has deep contacts within the army.
The mighty rule - but the mighty also fall very heavily in the end
This week while at KMDC there was a detailed case study on two different cases, one who was treated with Functional Herbst Appliance and the other case was a complex TMD Patient, who has been through Anterior Positioning Appliance and is presently undergoing Orthodontics, the discussion was outstanding.
The previous week we had a good discussion at Alvi Dental Hospital and to keep you all posted the following week is scheduled to be held at AKU. I really appreciate the effort of all involved to give their time and effort in this process

General/President Musharraf has now sold out all his beliefs by simply releasing Zardari in an attempt to draw the PPP onto the negotiating table, they surely will come but mind you people we have another deal in the making which will be the final nail in the coffin "The ultimate return of BB" She then will haunt us with her croaky shrill and classy lotta politics. Rumors have it that PPP would refuse to entertain the Army with one simple answer - release Zardari then talk to us. Now to help Musharraf PPP will now demand the return of BB. The Sharif's must be boiling out there in the Saudi desert wishing they had a sweet deal too.

The movie Farenheit 9/11 said that he was off work for 60% of his first year in office, are we about to see a repeat. We shall wait and see.

This time around it was not the Florida chads but almost turned into the "Ohio Provisionals" had it not been for the fact that Bush had a lead of 130,000 votes and for Kerry to nab 90% of the 150,000 or so provisional ballots was very unlikely and once Kerry was sure it was well beyond the 8000 lawyers hired by the Democrats to watch over the elections he finally conceeded the next day by a courteous five minute call.
As per my late swing towards Bush, my heart still refused to accept Bush, who am I to argue as the poeple have spoken and so with a sore heart I wish Bush all the best and hope he awakens from his slumber and does indeed make a difference in the world mind you I hope this time for the better. With the House and the Senate safely tucked in his back pocket it is now upto President Bush to either have Four More Years or walk into Four More Wars ?

I have been a staunch supporter for Kerry throughout the pre-election campaign and still hate Bush to the guts, but right at the last day, I might have a change in my overall decision. Why? You might ask, I feel that in the past 4 years the
IF KERRY WINS
If in case Kerry wins then he promises to do an about-turn of the international policy and try his best to join hands with the disgruntled nations and improve the US ties with each of them, this in effect will undo what Bush has done, bear in mind that he does not plan to stop the army in Iraq and he will remain on a war footing for sometime to root out the Anti-US terrorist aspect.
IF BUSH WINS
If in case Bush wins then we see him continuing the same course of action, he will not pull out the forces from
The effect on the Islamic world (Both Bush & Kerry)
The Islamic world will remain under constant pressure, too root out terrorist activity, soon I predict attention will revert to issue of nuclear arsenal, and
Keep your fingers crossed, its midnight of the election with polls opening in 7 hours

My prediction John Kerry as the next President of the United Stares of America. Slate.com has him leading by 10 electoral votes as of 31st October leading by 277-267 so let see how the future holds. It sure would be nice change, Muslims are united for Kerry

An out of court settlement is basically an admission of guilt
BILL O'REILLY GUILTY - he now wants to put this case begind it, but ofcourse we shall never forget - its like sweet revenge but would appreciate more juicy gossip

Caught red handed trying to LIPSYNC - a crime, all do it but she got caught and when you get caught it's a bug SIN
Perfectly fits into the Southwest airlines commercial - Wanna Get Away - Ashlee sure wish she was in the Bahamas instead of on he SNL stage.

Imagine how scared shit the American Army is out there -pissing in their pants - as see it

Bill O'Reilly (FOX- O'Reilly Factor) finally gets in a jam, from which it wont be too easy to walk away from, an argument to which he can't interjet between the sentences, over-talk the opposing comment, or shut the phone down upon.
Never liked his guts - I hope Bill serves some time still it might be difficult to get even with his arrogant reporting style. Enjoy some deep conversations with Martha Stewart.

My opinion is who the hell cares - Cheney in the past has referred publicly accepting that Mary (his daughter) is unique and even when John Edwards had mentioned Mary in the much nastier vice presidential debate, Cheney had thanked him "for the kind words he said about my family and our daughter."
For us Pakistanis - we wonder what's the issue? Gay or Lesbian - please talk about something worthwhile

He complained that Pay-per view and FCC cancelled his 1-day before election show (ofcourse against Bush) probably due to pressure form the administration and in exchange the pay-per view agency is set to telecast an Anti-Kerry show in exchange - Interesting I would rather had seen Michael Moore break Bush from Limb to Limb

Lets hope it translates into a victory in November – Keep your fingers crossed

Bush can't justify his going to war on just the presumption that Saddam might have WMD's. We all know there was Oil to go after and that too was mentioned in the 1st Presidential debate where Kerry said that the first things that were controlled were all the oil wells and there was no other plan for the rest of the war - how selfish can the Americans get.
My preception is that the media played up with the NO-WMD in Iraq issue well - its damaged Bush's credibilty to a greater extent. The second presidential debate is on tommorrow I expect that to be a thriller with Bush recovering from the 1st debate by being a little bit more mature and not just acting like a sissy and repeating that - "Kerry also signed the consent to go to war" my dear 'ol fellow Bush you presented the wrong facts to the nation and now blame it on the Congress for pushing you into the war it was your desciosn to twist the facts.
My fingers are crossed its Kerry's turn to shine and I wish he plays to destory Bush's crediblity even furthermore by hitting on Bush's tax breaks and other internal issues (which this debate is primarily about)
To me Bush and Kerry are the same for the Muslim world but i just simply hate Bush's gutts for what he did in Iraq and Afghanistan.
CYA tommorrow after the debate.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marreo ruled in favour of the American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged the power the FBI has to demand confidential financial records from companies as part of terrorism investigations. The ruling was the latest blow to the Bush administration's
The FBI first received power to get customer records in 1986 legislation, but its power to obtain confidential data was greatly expanded by the Patriot Act -- a controversial law the Bush administration pushed through Congress after the 9/11 attacks to help it battle terrorism."
At least the US Justice system realizes that this act is not that Patriotic after all

I have moved out of Karachi for sometime - and I am right now sitting in Philadelphia trying to attend a course at UPENN. Its been 2 days an I am bored shit without any cricket. To be honest I am not complaining too much as I love NFL. It's pleasant out here at Hoagie land - for sometime you might get the American version of my views here. Will keep you all posted on my day-2-day events.

We should not loose hope I think there is light a the end of this tunnel with Bob Woolmer at the helm of affairs.

Teeth Masters Winning team - Stick with the present lineup Afridi way down the order and Shoaib Akhtar as replacement second line of attack bowler, he does not know how to handle the used ball let alone the shinny one and bowls all over the pitch. Rumors have it that our Mr. Ego (Shoaib Akhtar) Is pissed at Inzi and Woolmer for demoting him. Dear Coach - Let him stay there and allow his nuts (EGO) to cool down. Now back on to cricket - Inzi should attack the new batsman like when R. Gavaskar and M. Kaif came in during the last ICC Pak vs India game, the spinners were in action but Inzi did not employ an attacking silly point which could have exerted more pressure on the new batsman and maybe a wicket for us to celebrate, in effect Inzi cooled down and let the new batsmen settle - Ganguly on the other hand had a pressing field each time for new player.
Good Luck Pakistan we are rooting for you.

"Some bright spark has calculated that 96 per cent of the 160- odd million citizens of this country feel so, and the general has duly accepted the figure. Question : after his four-day visit to Karachi last week to inaugurate Ideas 2004 (arms for peace indeed!) does he know that the figure of 96 has perhaps been somewhat reduced?"
Precisley what i wanted to say Musharraf has to find out which 96% of the Pakistani population believes he NEEDS to stay in power
Finally we barely made it but was fun to see Afridi belt two sixes on Irfan Pathan - before the start of his 8th over his average was amazing and lo behold three balls and two sixes later afridi had balanced the equation - on to the Semi's

Wake up people until december you are going to be bombarded with evidence upon evidence that Musharraf must say - according to the man himself "I have the pulse of the Nation" and according to that wierd pulse 96% want him in power - Yikes which artery does he have Constitution Avenue in Islamabad.
The pulse of Pakistan says -
1 - dont make a mess of the traffic by test drivign those Merc's
2 - dont beleve that you are the saviour - we soundly believe in Allah
3 - dont assign retired generals to take over ministeries - Pakistan is not a post retirement job for army personnel
4 - GET OFF THAT BUTT (Seat)
--- until next time

bound to be cursing out loud and not simply under your breath. The
establishment is so scared that they block traffic both ways, my advice to
management is that it shall always be Allah's will, you can't do anything to
prevent it. You might deter the small crooks but the big fish will find a
way, and my gut felling is that it will be from an insider.
Until then Karachi can wait for his Royal Highness to attend his meetings, its cheaper to fly everyone to Islamabad then have Musharraf drop into our

Shaukat Aziz and Sh Rashid Ahmed - puppets of the present govt said today that our dear 5-year old "Dick"tator Prez Musharraf does not have to step down from power and they hoped that he would accept to retaining both the Military and Prez post, as no constitutional restrcitions exists.
YIKES - what is the world heading towards are we in the process of another 10-yr like ZIA rule that destroyed all sanity of Democracy - i think we are.
Mushy believes that once he goes all hell will break loose - MAYBE as then all those power hungry so called democrats the MNAs and MPAs will try to get the throne -
When musharraf came he wanted to EMPOWER the people - all he did was empower himself and his pockets -
GOD HELP US ALL

For GM the cost was equilavent to almost 50 prime time adverts but even that cannot create a stir as this stint simply has done - almost worth a 300 ads and a massve campaign overnight
Wish I could get on one of those giveaway shows
Bush has 212 Solid votes and 95 closely contested wins
Kerry has 170 Solid and 61 closely contested wins
I hope these predictions stand overturned as my gutt tells me Bush should be OUT - but who am i to say - Pakistani, a third world citizen
BUT still am very PROUD to be a PAKISTANI

Well done Saadia

I come home from work and walk into the ever joyous welcoming smile greeting me on the driveway, that simple act lasting for probably barely a minute washes away all the tensions from work. Not to say work is hectic - I love dentistry but even then its amazing.
I can't expect that much love and affection from any other child except your own. Zaafir with his smelly diapers :) is still my twinkle twinkle star of my life - oops and also my wife Sadiqa (she'll love the side note - wish me luck tonight)
Wide world of people - talk to you later

On the other hand the Government of Pakistan feels threatened by each and every new idea and regulations are created to block the progress. What good is a govt that is consumed with monitoring of its own people - it should be worried about other problems -
might one need to outline the problems - i doubt as we all are well aware of the present state of affairs in Pakistan
Until next time

Back to the Future
What Bush would do if he were president.
For $2.4 trillion, guess what wordother than "a," "and," and "the"occurs most frequently in the acceptance speech George W. Bush delivered tonight.
The word is "will." It appears 76 times. This was a speech all about what Bush will do, and what will happen, if he becomes president.
Except he already is president. He already ran this campaign. He promised great things. They haven't happened. So, he's trying to go back in time. He wants you to see in him the potential you saw four years ago. He can't show you the things he promised, so he asks you to envision them. He asks you to be "optimistic." He asks you to have faith.
"Since 2001, Americans have been given hills to climb and found the strength to climb them," said Bush. "Now, because we have made the hard journey, we can see the valley below. Now, because we have faced challenges with resolve, we have historic goals within our reach and greatness in our future."
After the Michael Moore's "Farenheit 9/11" was released it has haunted the Saudian Government to such an extent that they have launched a web campaign and adverts were displayed on Slate.com (picture attached)
Are the Saudians really guilty or is it just a clean up affair? One has to wonder - I am secretly glad that the Saudians were shipped out in time BUT then agaiin WHY? why them only i would then say BUSH is to blame and is guilty - he must have been in a haste to remove all evidence ASAP -
According to the Richard Clark in his book titled "Against All Enimes" he quotes Bush as saying that "find if Saddam is involved". Bush only wanted revenge and that meant removing Saddam and invading Iraq like he has done so already
DOWN with BUSH

The reason why Vodafone and Orange backed out of the Cell Phone licenses in Pakistan was due to the reason (rumor) PIA was going to sign a purchase agreement with AIRBUS but at the last moment with some US pressures backed out and committed to BOEING this infuriated the French Govt and told VODOFONE and ORANGE (both french multinationals) to back out of further commitments in Pakistan
Can anyone attest to this rumor
