    The war began even before he was in office, many vested interests get compromised with election of PM Kaptaan, no doubt these swines are going to use all their assets in the region to assassinate heaven forbid our beloved PM, ISI has to be at the top of it's game.Kudos bro and as a nation we all need to be ultra-vigilant against all the fake news for the likes of Geo etc.

    Excellent analysis @The Eagle
    Media is setting a trap and not just the public but the government officials are falling for same trap. They are (both public and gov.) more focused on the non-issues and many serious problems will get ignored in long run.

    Now here is another reference, that I am sure, most of us are not the patients of short time memory syndrome. After Musharraf era, PPPP was elected and then after PMLN ruled country. Despite incompetency of few within PMLN to understand a situation, know the power of armed forces and how to utilize expertise as & when needed; been largely maligning Military but also, use to throw tantrums followed by hateful speeches against most of the institutes.

    What PMLN etc did was not just the issue but hired/paid media played with all of its might to propagate and fuel the fire on an agenda. There was less reporting but more of the efforts to establish a narrative that Civilian & Military leadership is on different pages of history while having bad relations where Military was maligned for being anti-Democratic process. Pity that many pro-claimed intellectuals agreed to the most propagated narrative & started to believe as such.

    Now the question arises as why would PMLN will do so, paying media houses/journalists at large and continue with propaganda to defame own Military. Well, the treason is a common name in this regard which actually differs & varies due to geographical aspects as well as culture & customs of different regions. Indeed, in Pakistan people will compromise over many things but when it is about Motherland & Military then there are masses that wouldn't tolerate the same as such. The love for Military is not as such as patriots wouldn't agree for accountability across the board but on other hand, how can one call them anti-Democracy or State? the same way where these political thugs or corrupt media persons cannot be called traitors, therefore, the deliberate split was always part of the scheme and from top to bottom, everyone whosoever was employed under different terms of compensations in return; been doing everything to establish an anti-Military or State narrative.

    The whole chemistry and propaganda can be understood in simple words that Media was utilized to repeat again & again same narrative, create news instead to bringing an original one, repeat sugar coated lies, rely upon anonymous source to avoid being questioned for authenticity and then build a narrative by brainwashing people through non-stop media coverage of lies. Internet is so full of information in regard to the subject however, here we can relate different events to understand as such. Just as a fresh reference which we have been listening for so long and many believed into but ...... the reality is....

    Civil-military rift was myth created by past govt: PM

    We have very limited segment of society , who believe in " investigative journalism " or interested to see such programs. Our viewers love to see cock fight on the channel, govt vs opposition, and later chest thumping and go to bed . A sample program , such as "Muqabil" of Rauf Kaalasra. I am not agree with his facts and figures , but he strive hard to convince the viewer with his point of view with supportive provided credential from different govt institutions.

    The disinformation is getting to ridiculous levels.

    State has new found tolerance for all kinds of propaganda and plan is to counter it with publicising more truth. Naivety at its best!

    If the state thinks it can ward off the ill effects of disinfo by providing full space and then countering with passive means then all the experts of opinion making, mass communicstion and propaganda stand corrected.

    A very surface read into the topic will establish how childish our approach is and this will hurt Pakistan deeply.

    Every state institute is in appeasement mode with no effort to regularise, contain and monitor this catastrophe in making.
