Boded Part: Truer words never spoken about the events of the last 13+ months!!
I will give it to Imran: Brilliant, untiring tactician. But utterly stupid strategist.
Imran brilliantly used the prevalent anti-Americanism in Pakistanis after his ouster in April 2022 to gain a lot of political ground, otherwise, before April 2022 Imran was losing in by-elections and even in KPK.
After gaining ground, Imran, the impetuous psychopath that he is, decided to rush back to power but for that he needed the military's support. But the military had seen their 'Project Imran' failed--especially when Imran started to meddle in the appointments of the next COAS and ISI Chiefs. Of course that was Imran's Const. 'right', but Imran forgot his place. Also, Imran was exercising his 'rights' not because of some superiority of civilians: Imran was exercising his 'rights' because, knowing his declining popularity, he wanted to use the military/ISI (again) for power.
This is all an old-fashioned power game, guys and gals! Nothing new here. We do disservice to Pakistan if we ignore all this. So let's have some honesty in our heads and in our keystrokes! Love your country--not some personality! And call a spade a spade!
Your opinion. Will disagree.As I said in either in this or another thread here: Imran's one and only lasting 'legacy' will be discrediting the Pakistani 'Establishment'. That he did it, ironically, against his own interests, will also be noted by History. And Imran did it for political gains--not out of some grand ideals; that too will be recorded by History.
In the end, Imran will be remembered as one of the dumbest leaders in Pakistan's history, especially when you'd consider how much he was given by not only the Establishment but also by the Pakistani people who, rightly, got sick of the old order. Imran squandered it all, except for raising awareness about tackling the Pakistani Establishment.
It is time for the PTI supporters to get out of the spell and the stupor of loving this charlatan and love your country Pakistan.
You nailed it comprehensively. Having two front wars while relying heavily on the Superior Judiciary which has been split already...He miscalculated the situation on shocking scale. I mean with so much poor performance of PDM plus such powerful campaign of Imran himself last year when he addressed to over 70 Jalsas, all it needed was to have some patience and he would have got 75% result in upcoming elections.Mere Bhai!! In the jungle, that's called the Pakistani politics, there are no rules. But the wise leaders would have played the 'long game' and wouldn't have fought the combined Opposition AND the Establishment at the same time.
How many times I have to repeat that?? Imran Khan $fucked up by opening the two-front war!!
In the annals of political discourse, for a nation of Pakistan's size and influence, Imran Khan is going to be registered by History as the dumbest of all the leaders!!
Now you understand why PMLN and PPP want to engage in "family politics"? Because facing such a powerful opponent as the Pakistani military, these political parties in Pakistan can only maintain unity and not split by relying on "kinship". If Imran Khan's PTI was a dynasty, we wouldn't find such things like Shireen Mazari leaving in large numbers nowYour opinion. Will disagree.
If Pakistan comes out of this and real democracy takes root, Imran Khan will be remembered in history. His becoming a PM is irrelevant.
The PTI supporters are not in any spell of Imran Khan. They have questioned their leadership from time to time. PTI is not a dynastic political party where next of kin are automatically selected. Next elections will be PPP's or PMLN, and in the next couple of years, when Establishment gets fickle and chooses to overthrow either, we shall have the exact same conversation again.
PTI already had huge voting bank which increased further after april 2022 to the point that establishment and electables were no longer needed.
In any case Imran Khan have pea sized brain who I'm not sure is good for Pakistan at all.
You nailed it comprehensively. Having two front wars while relying heavily on the Superior Judiciary which has been split already...He miscalculated the situation on shocking scale.

He has got popularity....but he destroyed his accepatance by the unprescedented misuse of traditional and social media against the stake holders. He can still pull it back in few years due to the gifted talents he has if he is able to learn from the blunders !! Who knows ?
Because they are crooks who benefit from the existing system.. For instance, Supreme Court justices have personal relationships with leaders of the PMLN, similarly senior army generals do the same. To me it Increasingly looks like becoming Corp commander and COAS is now just a increasing popular way for creating multi generational wealth among top officers. Although i will not generalize because Most of the 90s Boys stayed in Pakistan but look at, Kiyani and his family was involved in corruption. Don't have any proof for Rahil Sharif but he left the country to mint money overseas and hasn't come back, Bajwa and Hafiz both have minted billions.I don't know why our leadership cannot think rationally and sensibly for once.
Either they have something VERY incriminating or personal on them, or they are threatening their children and family very badly, or these guys have crumbled too easily.
