You have posted the <b>"Cause"!</b>

Here is the <b><span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>"Effect"!! :</span></b>

[center] <!--emo&:flush--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Flush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='Flush.gif' /><!--endemo--><b><span style='font-size:21pt;line-height:100%'>Debt, liabilities rose to $55bn in past quarter</span></b> <!--emo&:flush--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Flush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='Flush.gif' /><!--endemo-->[/center]

<b>ISLAMABAD : If Pakistan decides to retire its entire external debt and liabilities (EDL), it has to slash one-third of its economy, as at the end of September 2009, the country’s EDL have increased to a worrisome $55.216 billion.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) few months back projected that Pakistan’s external debt would reach $74 billion by 2015. The nature of whopping increase in country’s external debt indicates that Islamabad would cross the limit very shortly and before the fund’s projected year.</b>

It is interesting to note that during a short span of three months, these liabilities jumped $2.88 billion from end June 2009 level of $52.33 billion.

Out of EDL, external debt stood at $53.79 billion against $50.76 billion at end June 2009 depicting an increase of $3.035 billion. It is notable that at end 2008,it stood at $44.46 billion.

However, external liabilities reduced slightly to $1.42 billion from $1.57 billion recorded at the end of financial year 2008-09.

According to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) data during the last 15 months, about $9.053 billion were added to external debt and liabilities. Last year at the end of June, these stood at $46.16 billion. Rupee depreciation against major currencies, especially the US dollar, was another factor contributing to the debt burden.

Pakistan’s back record revealed that external debt has increased significantly in the last few years. As on June 30, 2003 external debt stood at $32.46 billion, June 2004 ($32.93 billion), June 2005 ($34.04 billion), June 2006 ($35.89 billion), June 2007 ($39 billion), June 2008 ($44.46 billion), June 2009 ($50.76 billion) and now at the end of September 2009, it has jumped to $53.79 billion.

Independent economists believe that the increase in public debt could have severe long-term direct and indirect negative impact on economy. They say the government to make strong fiscal adjustments instead of more borrowing. Otherwise, in coming years, debt problem will cause severe macroeconomic consequences like low economic growth, closure of businesses, rising unemployment and poverty, deterioration of physical and human infrastructure, high inflation, pressures on exchange rate, discouragement of both domestic and foreign private investment etc.

Already the debt-servicing burden has progressively reduced the government’s ability to undertake much needed infrastructure development projects, and further rise in debt burden would hamper country’s efforts for social and economic development.

<b>Mudy Ji :</b>

Methinks mayhaps this increase is due to the IMF-WB-Saudi Arbia-Chinese Alms received which are <b>NOT AID</b> but <b>LOANS which accrue Interest and are "<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>Returnable"</span></b>

Musharraf resigned in August 2008 and in September 2008 Pakistan's External Debt was already USD 45.507 Billion.

This was "Phixed" by the Zardari sympathizers to USD 50.850 Billion in December 2008.

Thus the increment is due to the "Phresh" Loans.

<b>India preparing for limited war against Pakistan : FO</b>

ISLAMABAD : Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit Tuesday urged the world community to take notice of remarks passed by the Indian Army Chief, saying India is setting the stage for a limited war against Pakistan since long.

The FO spokesman said in its statement that the remarks of Indian Army Chief Gen Deepak Kapoor reflect the hazardous and aggressive nuclear theory propagated by India.

The spokesman said Deepak’s statement endorses Indian’s aggression-based ambitions regarding nuclear hegemony, adding it is incumbent upon the big world powers to keep intact the power balance in the region.

Abdul Basit said Pakistan is a responsible country and will continue working for the upkeep of peace in the South Asia on the basis of equality and mutual respect.

<b>Manmohan says assured by U.S. on Pakistan</b>

<b>WASHINGTON : Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Wednesday he was assured that U.S. influence on Pakistan would help prod Islamabad to crack down on militants who target India.</b>

Singh said his talks with President Barack Obama on Tuesday produced agreements that the two powers would work together on a number of issues including counter-terrorism.

"I'll go back to India convinced that India and the United States can and will do lots of things together to strengthen our strategic partnership in economics, in trade, in climate change, in energy, in counter-terrorism and all related activities," he told a news conference.

Asked whether he had persuaded the United States to use its clout with its ally Pakistan to crack down on Islamic militants who direct attacks at India, Singh said "I have been assured that U.S. influence will work in (that) direction."

The Indian leader's four-day visit to Washington aimed at boosting ties with the United States ended on the eve of the anniversary of last year's attack on the Indian city of Mumbai which killed 166 people.

Singh said in a statement to bereaved families of the attack that India "will not rest until we've brought the perpetrators of this horrible crime to justice."

<b>Pakistan’s forex reserves fall to $13.90 billion</b>

KARACHI : Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves fell to $13.90 billion in the week that ended on Nov. 21 from $14.12 billion the previous week, the central bank said on Thursday.

Reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan were $10.27 billion, down from $10.49 billion a week earlier, while those held by commercial banks were flat at $3.63 billion from the previous week, the central bank said in a statement.

Foreign reserves hit a record high of $16.5 billion in October 2007 but fell steadily to $6.6 billion by November last year, largely because of a soaring import bill.

An International Monetary Fund (IMF) emergency loan package of $7.6 billion agreed in November helped avert a balance of payments crisis and shore up reserves.

The IMF, which increased the loan to $11.3 billion in July, has disbursed more than $5 billion.

Quote:The first is to conduct raids to capture Taliban leaders in Baluchistan. Most Taliban are in or near Baluchi cities like Quetta. These should be police and intelligence operations, much like American-Pakistani efforts to capture Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and other Qaeda operatives after 9/11. The second is to hit Taliban leaders with drone strikes, as the United States and Pakistan have done so effectively in the tribal areas.

The cost of failing to act in Baluchistan will be enormous. As one Russian diplomat who served in the Soviet Army in Afghanistan recently told me: “You are running out of time. You must balance counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan by targeting the leadership nodes in Pakistan. Don’t make the same mistake we did.”
Its in Urdu Language.

Quote:The attacks caused structural damage to the building and left it stained with blood and body parts.

Security forces killed the two remaining assailants, who had opened fire indiscriminately, the military said.

Ameer Sheikh, a retired army officer who worships daily at the mosque and got to the scene immediately, said that the attackers carried out executions.

"They got hold of their hair and shot them," he said. "I saw people who used to be in the front row with me, lying there dead.

"I met a lot of army officers who had rushed there, desperately looking for their sons."

Mr Sheikh's son, Nasir Ali Sheikh, who was in the mosque at the time of the attack, managed to slip out and hide in some bushes. He said that the terrorists had also struck the women's section of the mosque.

"It was very terrible inside," said Nasir Ali Sheikh. "There were two people wearing belts with grenades and bullets... for fifteen to twenty minutes, we were helpless and hopeless."

The main Pakistani extremist group, Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which is closely tied to al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attack

Very targeted attack.

RAWALPINDI: The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani attended funerals of some of Shaheeds of yesterday’s tragic terrorist attack on a Mosque during Juma Prayers, in which officers, soldiers, elders, children and civilians lost their precious lives.

He expressed his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families. The Nation, including the Army stands united in sharing their grief.

Quote:WASHINGTON: The Obama administration may be putting out a fire in Afghanistan, but the dynamite factory is next door in nuclear-armed Pakistan, commented Democratic lawmaker Gary Ackerman this week.


'My constituents keep asking? Is it worth risking the lives of those who respond to the fire in a place that may or may not hold a lot of value in and of itself,' Ackerman, a US congressman from New York, told Obama's defense and diplomatic chiefs.


'It is a very delicate balancing act,' said Riedel, now with the Brookings Institution think tank. 'You don't change Pakistan's strategic behavior very easily. It is not something that will change in the course of months or years,' he added.

The Pakistanis are rattled by what the United States is doing in Afghanistan, with contradictory positions of not wanting a 'surge' of 30,000 more US forces across the border while also fearing Washington will withdraw too quickly and destabilize the region further. 'So they don't want us to surge or leave, but they also don't want to do more to make America and Nato policy in Afghanistan more likely of any sort of success,' said Robert M. Hathaway, director of the Asia program at the Wilson Center, another Washington-based think tank.


For example a proposed $7.5 billion non-military US aid package has been met with bountiful suspicion, particularly from the army, which says it comes with too many conditions. 'They don't seem to want a strategic relationship. They want the money, they want the equipment, but at the end of the day they don't want a relationship that costs them too much,' said Democratic Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey.
