    George Bluthe was definitely involved in the camouflage of the WMD resources Saddam had. There's hard proof of that.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Meanwhile returning to the original topic

    All eyes on Imran?s rally in Karachi on 25th

    After his show of strength in Lahore, Imran plans to test his muscle in Karachi. If Imran is to be believed this one might even over shadow the Lahore rally. Remains to be seen though. Karachi has traditionally been an MQM stronghold (although it has to be admitted that the MQM has seen its popularity dwindle in the last few years)
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    can't see Imran getting more then 25K in Karachi apart from being an MQM strong hold people usually avoid such rallies in karachi since the Benazir Bomb blast in 07.

    agree with the staying away part. I don't blame them since Karachi's political climate is impossible to predict but Imran seems pumped and his optimism is quite contagious.

    Also SMQ joining his party seems to have strengthened his vote bank somewhat in southern punjab and upper Sind. As in initially there was nobody there to look after his interests. Now suddenly he has SMQ who (apparently) has a lot of clout in that area.

    Say Imran gets in to power, and then finds that SMQ is involved in corruption, what would happen?

    lol.....probably Imran's govt would collapse.

    I doubt that corruption charges on SMQ would surface now if they have not surfaced in 35 years of his political career.

    From what I hear SMQ is a known turncloak but he isn't known to be involved in financial impropriety

    btw a highly prominent PPP leaders son who is my personal friend has cut off ties with PPP and is close to joining PTI, his inclusion will strengthen Imran's base in interior Sindh.

    Say if it does happen, can't he force SMQ's resignation?

    Zulfiqar Mirza is now joining PTI. Oh no

    Btw it has to be said that it is the incompetence of the present rulers that is driving people towards Imran by the droves

    If he forces SMQ to resign then SMQ will take away all the seats that he has contributed to Imran's govt with him and if Imran doesn't have a big enough majority then his govt would collapse

    So he can take away the seats whenever he wants, and not when it's election time. Is that how it works?
