The worsening political situation of the country can be likened to a pirates ship approaching the state ship. Imran and Qadri with some other political allies will try to make a hole in the state ship and if they succeed in making a hole then it will not be possible to float. The state’s fate will be to drown. However, if the state has a good plan for repair, then a little hole will not matter and they may continue the remaining political journey unharmed. In my view the pirates look determined to fight till they succeed and the people on the state’s ship seem confused.
