Pakistan’s very own Howard Beale

Kamran Shafi’s rants

He’s mad as hell and he wont take it anymore. This is one of the Pakistani Howard Beale’s best rants

It is high time we forced a change in the parameters of political discourse — the terms of reference, so to say.

To speak bluntly, we must take away from the Establishment what it considers its God-given right: to set the political agenda; to talk down to those of us it considers enemies and exact punishment of its choice; to forgive its friends-for-the-time-being no matter what their crimes; to arrogate to itself the right to make war according to its own lights and for its own self-serving reasons; and generally doing as it wills.

Well, enough is bloody enough! [Daily Times]
