Once upon a time a Lion King was sleeping peacefully under a canopy in a jungle. Finding the lion asleep, the cowardly animals like jackals and wolves, birds and creeping bugs surrounded the lion king. Some of them dared to ride on him. The lion king feeling tickled by the movement woke up from his sleep. As soon as he saw that congregation of animals and birds, he roared ferociously in rage, which echoed the jungle to hell. Within seconds, all animals and birds disappeared like cockroaches.

The coalition and Musharraf opponents are no more than cockroaches and bugs creeping in the stadium bathrooms.

The coalition, press and media, ex-army men, lawyers and so-called civil society who have congregated around President Musharraf must understand that the General (Retired) has nothing to lose at this point, but they do.

1. President Musharraf has served the army for well over 35 years and reached to the highest post of Army Chief.

2. President Musharraf has been Pakistan’s most power President for over 8 years.

3. His children are grown, educated, married and settled overseas, so no worry to him.

4. He has no desire of post, power and wealth as he has seen it all.

5. He holds a wide range of friendships and personal relations all over the world who people like Hameed Gul, Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari and their Hawaaris like Hamid Mir and Kamran Khan could only imagine.

6. Last but not least against the desires of many President Musharraf received a graceful guard of honor.

So, really, cockroaches, what say you?

    Whoa..!!

    Excellent start. very very interesting. The animals imagery is satirical and proves a point. Smart choice of Metaphors.

    //The coalition and Musharraf opponents are no more than cockroaches and bugs creeping in the stadium bathrooms.//

    This is actually good. Exactly scenario in few words. Bravo.

    You put forth some very valid points on how “President Musharraf” ( I will go with American’s way here) is not the loser in the field actually. And this one was the best…

    //5. He holds a wide range of friendships and personal relations all over the world who people like Hameed Gul, Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari and their Hawaaris like Hamid Mir and Kamran Khan could only imagine.//

    Precisely… These crooks can be( read: are) sold. The P.R. President General has around the world is amazing due to his charisma and eloquence.

    10/10 for this one. It was a really good read. As reader, I find its flow really smooth. Very interesting article. The point you are making here that how President Musharraf could have been ( could be?) more beneficial for Pakistan, is stately and valid. Very commendable.

  1. hahhahah

    zabardast….. so true :D
