2. Pakistan Government to hide carbon tax on CNG
Government is fooling the Nation by saying that the Carbon tax will be used to cut budget deficit and help fight war on terror. This is Ridiculous! The strange part of this reality is that no one in our super active media cared to ask that if this really is the motive behind it then why is it called “carbon tax”.

“The Finance Ministry has explored a tricky way to impose the controversial carbon tax on CNG. According to well-placed sources, the government has decided to hide the carbon tax on CNG under the name of Gas Development Surcharge (GDS). The sources said as part of the strategy, the government would first withdraw the carbon tax on CNG from budget proposals, as announced by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, but would levy it again as part of the Gas Development Surcharge on natural gas.”

3. Pakistani troops clear Taliban stronghold in Swat
Swat cleared of Militants! We are proud of our courageous and strong Pakistani Security Forces

“Pakistani troops cleared on Wednesday the last Taliban stronghold in the Swat Valley, the army said, and appealed for public support to defeat militants in an Afghan border region.”

4. Thousands of Pakistanis hold anti-US rally
Everyone hates the US and its policies including Pakistanis. Their white color and white lies aren’t any good anymore to cover up for their dark filthy tactics. It is about time we should come out and block NATO supplies in revenge for US support to Baitullah.

“About 10,000 participants, holding party flags, banners and placards, chanted anti US slogans and demanded the government to condemn Washington's policies.”

5. Washington Puts Pressure on India, Which Is Good, But CIA Is Killing Pro-Pakistan Tribesmen
“While Indians are extremely sensitive about US involvement in Kashmir dispute, they are equally upset over rising US pressure to contain their anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan which are causing great concern and anger in Pakistan. Pakistan has now a legitimate excuse that it needs to first take out those assets of TTP who are fighting Pakistan rather than those who are attacking NATO and US forces in Afghanistan."

6. $2,000 for a Dead Afghan Child - $100,000 for Any American Who Died Killing it
“Shocking? Shame provoking? Embarrassing that no Afghani or Pakistani child or parent has any human right at all, including the right not to be blown to pieces in a US drone air strike? - the final insult being the value of their lives put at a mere $2,000 by the wealthiest nation in history?”

7. True or False: U.S. Economic Stats Lie
“Surveyors collect the nation's data and statisticians compile and report it. Politicians naturally want the numbers to show improvement. Not being able to change the facts, they focus on the handling of facts, pressuring statisticians to change their measurements. It's not quite one grand conspiracy but decades of minor ones compiled. Today's reports are so perverted, the theory holds, that the numbers have detached from common experience.”
