PTI to protest drones in US
[Dawn] Pakistain Tehrik-e-Insaf
...a political party in Pakistan. PTI was founded by former Pakistani cricket captain and philanthropist Imran Khan. The party's slogan is
Justice, Humanity and Self Esteem, each of which is open to widely divergent interpretations....
chairman Imran Khan
Taliban Khan, who ain't the sharpest bulb on the national tree...
has said that PTI will hold a protest demonstration against the US drone attacks in front of the United Nations
...the Oyster Bay money pit...
in New York on Oct 26.
Talking to media persons after visiting the CMH to enquire after the health of Malala Yousafzai here on Wednesday, he said that drone attacks and military operations had been producing more forces of Evil in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and announced that PTI would gather peace activists from around the world to register protest at the UN.
He also condemned those who attacked Malala Yousafzai and said that military operation in Swat
...a valley and an administrative district in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistain, located 99 mi from Islamabad. It is inhabited mostly by Pashto speakers. The place has gone steadily downhill since the days when Babe Ruth was the Sultan of Swat...
had proved a failure and army campaigns in Fata should be stopped.
In 2009 Swat was controlled by the Pak Taliban. Throwing them out may be the only military success the Mighty Pak Army has ever had -- I can't think of another. Imran would no doubt have preferred to leave the area under Talib control, with the turbans expanding their sway from there over Islamabad and hence to the entire country.
