Most politician are corrupt, incapable, dishonest, opportunistic, ruthless thugs; but these same thugs are the "Girl-friend" of the army establishment

Here are extracts:

The biggest benefactors of this mess that we call Pakistan, are the upper brass of the armed forces off course. I listen with awe when some of my brethren (who either have family ties in the armed services or are somehow getting benefits from the military thugs) rant & rave in favor of the Army's superiority and how the Army has the ultimate wisdom and right over Pakistan. This insinuation by King Musharaf that the public of Pakistan is just too dumb to decide their own fate is as insulting as it gets.

Besides in 50 or more years of our existence it's no hidden secret that Pakistan either had martial-law or puppet governments that were being maneuvered by the armed forces. If Pakistan is a disaster today (and it surely it is for the most part), do you really have to be a rocket scientist to figure out whose fault it is?

I am not saying that the politicians or civil bureaucracy have been any better; most of them are bunch of opportunistic, self-serving "YES-MAN" but they are nothing but hired-help.

The show has always been run by the people with big-guns; "MEN AT THEIR BEST, THE PAKISTAN ARMY". We have to decide as a nation once & for all who in this day age will govern us. Is it going to be status-quo with the "KHAKIS", or can we bring about a change?

And change won't come free of charge either because you see, governing Pakistan is a very profitable business for the benefactors and they are not going to let go of this cash-cow easily or willingly. Do we have enough self-respect and courage like the Nepalese, or are we still in that state of numbness as a nation?

...Hate politicians all you want: most of them are corrupt, incapable, dishonest, opportunistic, ruthless thugs; but these same thugs are the "Girl-friend" of the army establishment. They are the ones that Army likes and can sleep with (metaphorically speaking off course, or is it?).
