Good Luck, Pakistan! Thanks for Tweets

James Bovard, May 10, 2013

Pakistan holds elections on Saturday. More than 70 people have been killed nationwide in pre-election violence. It is encouraging that Pakistani High Court Chief Justice Dost Muhammad Khan issued a ruling on Thursday declaring US drone strikes in tribal areas in Pakistan illegal and a war crime.

I hope this election can help Pakistanis attach a much tighter leash on their own government. Unfortunately, elections rarely curb the rapacity of politicians. (America has re-learned this the hard way with practically every election since 1928.) The Lost Rights quip about democracy, wolves, and lambs has popped up fairly often lately in Pakistani tweets. Here’s a reposting of some of those tweets –

There’s a bevy of other Pakistani Twitter quotes (and some from elsewhere in Asia) reposted (with the full Twitter imagery, including author photos) at my blog entry on the Pakistani election.

    Looks like the two comments above mine are spam. Anyway, from one writer to another: glad you are getting your propers in as bad ass a place as Pakistan.

    Each one of these names allude to a single diet plan established in 1940 as a stomach ulcer therapy by Stanley Burroughs and then resurrected recently by Peter Glickman. It may be useful to remember that neither are medical specialists.
