Pakistan’s Trump Card

Pakistan is a country which is full of natural & mineral resources, but I am not going to talk about exploiting these resources as Pakistan is an underdeveloped country (UDC), she lacks the resources, machinery, skills & the technical knowledge to exploit these resources. These Resources may be the Ace’s that we possess in our hand but they certainly cannot, help us to defeat problem of Terrorism. Terrorism is not just the problem of Pakistan, but rather a global issue which is currently irking the Western Powers(USA & Europe) but the problem here seems to be that Pakistan is fighting this war alone, as the lives of innocent people are being jeoperdised by the Government & the Army on the expense of friendly ties with USA & the West.

As we Know that Pakistan is not only suffering from terrorism, being an UDC; Pakistan has to face various problems like unemployment, poverty, corruption, etc. & the international community is also not playing its part well. As Pakistan has taken quite a lot of loans in the past from the World Bank, Asian Development Bank & the International Monetary Fund(IMF), these institutions are further creating hurdles for Pakistan by pressurising on the the issue of repayment of loans by increasing the interest rates. As a result inflation has risen in the country, distracting its leadership from the actual menace of terrorism.

Now lets suppose, what if Pakistan were to apply a ‘Tit for Tat’ attitude against these ‘Western Powers’. Didn’t get what I said?, alright here let me clarify a bit. If Pakistan were to raise this issue of Terrorism in UN Security Council & relate it to the monetary issues, I am sure that we can Waive off at least 40% of our foreign loans. All Pakistan has to do is to conduct a good bargain ‘Terrorists in exchange for relief in foreign loans’. Deal or no Deal its up to the USA & the West to decide that. As a matter of fact I feel that we have an upper hand in this Issue; as Pakistan is a Nuclear Power & the only Muslim country to possess such technology & I am confident the USA & the West are not too naive to attack a Nuclear Islamic Republic Backed by the so called Taliban & vast majority of Civilians who by far also hate the USA (due to its supportive policies towards Israel)

Pakistan is in a situation of Die or Die trying. If we continue to support the US & the West in the War against Terrorism, it will do no good to the country as people are already dieing under the pressure of inflation & unemployment, but if we support the Taliban directly; the UNO Sanctions will murder the country’s Economy & Population. In my opinion, a little jolt in the UN Council will do us no harm on the contrary we might win the war from both ends.

FIFA World Cup 2010

The FIFA World Cup 2010, which as you all are aware is being in held South Africa. It is the first time that an African Nation has had the honour of hosting the event. The preparations made by the country to host the World Cup may be below par but this has certainly not dispirited the African Fans. Yesterday South Africa etched its name in history of the FIFA, by not only being the first host nation to be eliminated from the tournament from group stages, but by also defeating one of the Footballing greats France by a Margin of 2 – 0. It was the first time ever that the South African Nation had ever defeated France on such big stage. Although most of us never really expected South Africa to qualify for the last 16 phase(well at least I know I didn’t, but we also never really imagined France to be eliminated with such a  humiliation. The French squad consists of some of the well known Footballers (F.Ribery, G.Cisse, T.Henry, Toulalan, N.Anelka) exited the tournament without a single victory in the group stage. I guess France should try to convince Zinedine Zindane to come back from retirement & show the team how its done.

On the the other hand most of the African nations have failed to impress me so far, except GHANA . I never Imagined teams like Nigeria &
Cameroon & Ivory Coast would put poor performances, despite their strong squads which compromised of players from major clubs of Europe, such as Barcelona, Arsenal, Chelsea etc… & to be honest the so called ‘God’s of Football’ aka The Samba Boys(Brazilian’s) have also failed to impress me, although they have won both of their qualifying matches so far, but I never really expected such low margin of goals from the 5time World Champions. I never really liked the Brazilian game play but also never expected this from them as well…(perhaps it’s not their fault, they can always blame the kits they are wearing made out of recycled bottles xD)

As for the most disappointing team of the tournament can rightly be granted to the star studded team of England. Yes fellows, England is the team that many of the bookies this year had kept their hopes high on but England sure knows how to discourage betting scandals…. Starting from Robert Green, The England’s no.1 choice, Fabio Capello selected Green over David James, hums….isn’t it a dream of a Coach to win the World Cup??? Well certainly Mr.Capello thinks differently, otherwise he would have sent Robert Green Home back to England after that pathetic display of skill in the match against USA. Next disappointment came from the English Star, Wayne Rooney. Rooney’s form in the EPL is arguably V.good but when it comes to big stage he somehow fails to reproduce his original form, why is that so??? Ans is simple the applied Pressure of being on big screen in front of millions of eyes is just too big for the Manchester United Striker.

Personal favorites To Win this Year’s World Cup:
I am tipping You guys with the following 4teams that would enter the Semi’s this Year, namely they are:
Argentina
Germany
Spain
Uruguay

C’mon people don’t be surprised over the selection of Uruguay as one of the hot favorites to win the World Cup this Year ….The Uruguay reminds me of France as they were in the 2006 World Cup, The whole team depended on the mastermind Zidane. Well this time history has repeated itself but only the victims are different. This time its Uruguay’s, ‘Diego Forlan’, who has helped the team to go through the qualifying stages of the Cup. Lets be fair & not to forget the D.Forlan has remained the top scorer of the Spanish League in 2005 & 2009 & the display of ball control that he exhibited against the matches of France & Mexico, were out of this world. I’d personally rate him higher than C.Ronaldo(who by the way is also in his top form this Year)
