Where is the change....?

On 20th jan 2009 a cold cold day a year ago....the people of United States and the World witnessed the Inauguration of the 44th President Of United States Of America...Mr Barak Hussian Obama from the west front capital hill.His Oath in office administered by the chief justice John G Roberts on a closed Lincoln bible.
After the Oath which had to be technically corrected later on ...Mr Obama in his inaugural speech said..

My fellow citizens:

I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath.[1] The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.

So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.

That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.

These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land — a nagging fear that America's decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights.

Well I don't know about the American people...But I knew for sure that this is not the is the end of an election Rhetoric....CHANGE ! WE WANT

and that from now on he will only speak eloquently...

In my view he faced three main challenges when he entered the office in white House.

1.the war

2.the economy

3.and not being taken seriously....

For the third he hired people like Mrs Clinton and Ms Johnson ...

the War had been going on too long a little persuasion by his charming personality convinced the war mongers that it must end before his re-election campaign very convenient .

For the economy he didn't have to do much..all he did was to pool the money to save the collapsing financial institutions.

In the mean time he kept the house and senate occupied with the healthcare legislation and few foreign help and assistance bills like the kerry lugar bill for pakistan.

And there he is the 44th US and first colored president of the United States of America with an year of experience in the office and an approval rating in the safe zone of above 56 %

Blank Cheque.....

Another Dark Day in the history of US-Pakistan relations.
This picture published in the largest circulation newspaper of pakistan shows the Most Honorable Ambassador of the United States of America MS Anne Paterson Who everbody knows has been the most instrumental in getting Billions of Dollars of US aid for Pakistan during her tenure as the ambassador of United States to Islamabad.On her visit to my neighborhood,yesterday, she had to experience the regular power shut down.
Now if she had been back in US and had a similar experience she might have sued KESC the karachi power company.....but no she was not in the US yesterday.....she was here in the richest port city of a poor poor Pakistan tr
ying to make its ends meet on the much needed US she quitely visited the mausoleum of the founder of the nation Mr Jinnah .laid the wreath at his tomb and inspected the museum within the compound and left.
The Amount of Money she is blamed to have brought into Pakistan is very huge yet nobody turned out not even me to greet her here...doesn't that seem a bit rude of the people of pakistan soooooooooooooooooo ungrateful that even the billions of dollars given in charity means absolutely nothing to them...Or
do they believe otherwise...I personally feel that the young and old,poor and rich people of pakistan have realised that its not just the pakistan's politicians and officials that are corrupt ..the real culprit of Pakistan are the bad and corrupt US politicians and officials who keeps Pakistan in such a mess and keeps paying for the disarray a small portion of the US aid and keeps the large chunk into their own pockets... Obviously the small portion is also in millions of dollars enough to topple an unpopular govenment leaving nobody answerable in office in case the American People (tax payers) questions where did all the money we paid to this sick and filthy nation of ungratefuls bloodsuckers go ....?
Obviously it is evident from her excellency the Honorable ambassador's picture above that the money so generously offered to Pakistan is not for the people of Pakistan and not even for the improvement of the economy of Pakistan.because there is a power problem so severe that no economy can flourish. So can it be true that the US is paying for this power crisis to continue make it weak and helpless gullible up for grabs....turning it in a cutthroat island...the poor people killing each other turning neighbor against neighbor.... so when(if) time comes the US army has no resistance or very little...infact the desperate people of Pakistan welcome it with fresh flowers....
Clearly this is the agenda in the minds of those at the helm of affairs in the US otherwise the energy and power crisis in my neighborhood could have been overcome years ago and the ho
norable her excellency would not appear so helpless and powerless despite delivering so many large sum cheques from the notorious Uncle Sam.

Well done EMAAR Pakistan....

EMAAR The Real state company that has started the unbelievable project of reclaiming land from the sea and developing the Crescent Bay at Karachi beach ....has also constructed the world's tallest building in the name of Khalifa BURJ...

Burj Khalifa (Arabic: برج خليفة‎ "Khalifa Tower"),[3] formerly known as Burj Dubai, is a skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 828 m (2,717 ft).can be seen from 95 kilometres away. Construction began on 21 September 2004, with the exterior of the structure completed on 1 October 2009 and the building officially opened on 4 January 2010

14 number One....look whose the straight shooter now..

US-bound passengers from 14 countries face new airport security.Those countries are: Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and Yemen.
The American (US) foreign relations policy is very famous for not being consistent and long term.In the eighties and nineties ..during and after the cold war ...they used the term MFN (most favored nation) allure a not so friendly nation....since 9/11 they have been very very edgy and do not consider anybody as their friend...there is a term I believe xenophobic that applies to them.
