Pakistan: Sharif Brothers Under House Arrest

Open Pakistan reports quoting GEO TV that “Pakistani authorities on Wednesday decided to put Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and his borther Shahbaz Sharif under house arrest to prevent a planned long march by the opposition party workers and lawyers to Islamabad.” CHUP! – Changing Up Pakistan reported earlier that the Interior Ministry Chief Rehman Malik threatened to impose sedition charges on the Sharif brothers.

    Like a broken record, the farce that is Pakistan continues on it’s backward slide towards disaster, and the fundamentalists are already drooling at the prospect of being in charge, like in Iran and Afghanistan. And there is very little that can be done to stop this. The West imagines that these barbaric neanderthals will listen to reason and live in democratic peace. This is almost armageddon, folks. It’s goin g to bea clash of epic proportions, and it seems imminent.
