@Pakistani1, Begging continue to rules. There is a common pattern from Liaquat to Ayub to Bhutto to Zia to Benazir to Musharraf to Zardari to Nawaz to Imran which is they all went to IMF to beg for dollars and to lick western shoes with their tongues. Every single politician and dictator goes for begging. It will not change unless elite sacrafices themselves and put some controls to their power and financial gains and western shoe licking. Imran said he will suicide but will not go to IMF but he went to IMF and didn't committed suicide. Nawaz said it is better to die than to go to IMF to beg for dollars but he went to IMF but he didn't died. We are still at zero. The elite consists of politicians, generals, billioanires, policy makers, judges and media houses. They have collective financial, political and foreign western interests which they are trying to protect from the very beginning. It was It is and It will always be the Elite Republic of Pakistan no matter what. Have a nice day.
