Sugar and sugar daddies, Hamid Gul,

Once again Farrukh lets the numbers do the talking. Barvo! The only thing wrong is the descriptive phrase sugar daddy. Sugar Daddies are rich men past their prime with token eye-candy young women (as wives or girl freinds). ~t

On November 7, 2008, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) published the 'Pakistan Sugar Semi Annual 2008'. According to the report, Pakistan's sugar production for the 2008/09 forecast "decreased slightly to 3.56 million metric tonnes." On April 13, 2009, the USDA published 'Pakistan Sugar Annual 2009'. According to the report: "Pakistan's MY 2009/10 sugar production is forecasted at 3.65 million metric tonsConsumption is forecast at 4.35 million metric tonnes and imports at 730,000 tonnes." When the whole world knew that Pakistan was short on sugar, why did the government fail to import the commodity? ...For the record, the average price of sugar during the fiscal year 2007-2008 was Rs27.67 a kilo. As of yesterday, sugar is being sold for Rs56 a kilo -- more than a 100 per cent jump in the price. Obviously, the cancellation of sugar import tenders by the TCP was a step in the wrong direction. Roughly, a dozen of Pakistan's sugar daddies – one-third in the ruling party, one-third in the friendly opposition and one-third in the like minded -- own some six dozen sugar mills. It's all about greed -- public money, private greed. It's all about enriching private pockets with public money.

Now that he has confessed again, [Hameed Gul admits he formed IJI] why should he not be also tried? And he should be aware that the plea of following orders has been put to rest at the Nuremberg Trials. ~t
