Will last longer than an independent Taliban caliphate, no doubts about that one.

Incidentally current Pakistani president's support for an extension of land for a nitwit wearing a filo pastry pork pie in his head probably will result in the soon to be failure of entire state of pakistan in a major war with India.
USA on right track in declaring the matter a local border dispute between India & Pakistan. Apparently nitwit with filo pastry pork pie hat on his head wants to provoke the war in order to remove all of current pakistani govt, & army @ a stroke & precipitate a Taliban takeover.

USA on wrong track in regarding Pakistan as an ally in the fact that civil war between Pakistan & Taliban has not been declared by ex state of Pakistan @ Present & BOTH sides of civil war state they hate the guts of USA & want to kill them all.

Situation in Pakistan now looks @ present like Bangladeshi war of secession without there being an intervening country in the way,(which is probably how the Kashmiri war of division began, as it was an independent state before the initial conflict which the Pakistani side started). appears that the idiots with the filo pastry pork pies on their heads were responsible for the conflict then & now.

Should in absence of a major war with India, dissolve into an internecine bloodbath when Pakistan defaults on its current IMF loan.

The island will probably still be there afterward.

Locals over there still gaga, likely another major quake in foothills area fairly soon...

The island is too small plus there's a volcano there and I don't think anybody wants to live there

No Volcano there Under sea Its Huge Methane Reservoir ... Biggest Hydro / OIL / Gas potential there ... My Efforts are in putting up an investment firm for a 'RIG' to be placed there.... already asked / here in Pakistan for 'RIG' manufacturing and i am getting lot more Ideas for an economical 'RIG' Manufacturing from Pakistani engineering firms ...

On subject of probable major quake in foothills... BOTH Pakistan & India are showing cases of gaga, Indian journos incidentally rather better with reportage & extreme religion in India less likely to result in major deaths,(Muzaffarnagar riots appeared exceptional & likely result of upcoming presidential election).

For Indian religious nutters...
Sadhus: likely almost incapacitated by their religion therefore danger mostly to themselves.#
Aghouris: likewise most likely to kill themselves rather than anyone else.
Thugs: Most of them hanged themselves during the days of the raj (Taliban mostly portrayed in the Indiana Jones movie).
Maoists: An ongoing problem particularly in the E. of India but similar in terms of conquest idealism as islamists.
Godmen: Most of the odd gurus now being caught by Journos doing the usual things to teenage girls, and best packaged through exising legal mill as & when.
Langhurs: A recognised problem in India, the main damage from touting for females being from the tail less kind with clothes on.

India despite showing gaga in a wide band around the W. & central foothill appears to be politically and socially more stable than neighbouring Pakistan.

Pakistan has all of the above list (with probable exception of the aghouris), with the religion basis & name undifferentiable from the bulk Mohammedean norm. Pakistan may destabilise into all out legendary historic background "gods & monsters" civil war before the onset of the major quake.

Expect major quake in foothills in region anywhere from W. part of Kashmir to foothills region of Nepal. Should be rather large.

Will keep watching that space...

The key is geoelectric & geomagnetic stress which produces a strong field around deforming rock with water moving around crystals.

The result is rather similar to being under a thunderstorm anvil all day every day.

The effect is to stress out the inhabitants in much the same way as animals reacting strangely during an impending earthquake. The key is to look @ a stress benchmark for humans and see whether the effects get any more intense with time.
For example the overly religious use their religion as a means of stress busting. It does not seem to be successful in most cases as the usual religious cult is predatory & will act to turn the average follower into a bum on a street corner, while owing everything that the religious follower has. This covers a lot of religious groups in the western Himalayan foothills such as the Aghouris & the Sahdhus, and even for that matter the Maoists & the Taliban which are a mix of slavers & street pharmacists with a religious overprint to hide behind.

The Thugs are an interesting aside as a result that their religions such as it is is based around a major historic event which was legendarily known as the "dance of kali" which ended the last gods & monsters war by breaking the megathrust of the Burma arc, thrusting up a lot of foothills in E. Bangladesh, producing a very small tsunami in the bay of bengal & turning the main Ganges-Brahmaputra estuary into a mud puddle. his incidentally is also the origin of the name of calcutta (which held the thug temple) which translated means "Kali steps". That particular "stomp" which relaxed the crust of the Burma arc was sometime between 650BC and 320AD, the descending plate beneath the Burma arc is still undergoing pressure related volume changes following the event and is traceable to about 300Km depth from these quakes. The moment magnitude would have been somewhere between 9.4 and 9.8 depending on how big the richter magnitude of the forearc thrust break was... It was legendarily noisy so my best estimate is on the high side. This also explains why the thugs were "strangle wallahs", If they spilled any blood Kali would return & start another stomping dance.

As can be seen in Pakistan & N India the stress level is very high already. Pakistan thanks to its predatory religious cult attitude is in a VERY bad way.
The best indicator is therefore India, which has a (slightly) lower cultural stress threshold. The main indicator to use is therefore the Indian religious cultists whom will probably go completely gaga before the main event quake.

A Non religious indicator (also a result of cultural stress) are the "languhrs", which as a result of aborted female foetuses & also harem sequestration in overly Arabic ares has resulted in a lack of females for the burgeoning low income background male teenage population in BOTH countries. The resulting stress has turned a large number of teenage males from BOTH India & Pakistan into monkeys. This culturally generated stress problem is at its peak nearest the western Himalayan foothills with lesser activity in the villages further S. near Sri lanka and further E. near Bangladesh. This one also pops up in other countries with the same cultural problem so as a result the same "languhrs" in the UK are a useful benchmark for a background rate. The rate (or at least the reportage) is increasing rapidly in India, and the reportage rate at least is now increasing in Pakistan. Keep watching that space, you may see someone you know...
One of the asides is that the Pashtuns in general also are subject to this cultural stress, as a result of them being tribalist slavers with pretenses of royalty. They are as a result not only running out of females but also present classical medical problems caused by inbreeding.

The stupid govt (USA) which flew the stars & bars under George HW Bush was voted out of office just over a term ago.

It was starting to look a bit like Pakistan immediately before the Bush regime ouster though; (something to do with them being a slaver regime & therefore blind absolutely to Al Quaeda & the Taliban in particular).

The current govt (USA) is now stars & striped but before Snowden blew the whistle, the NSA was still stars & bars. His whistle blowing appears to have removed the immediate threat of assassination to the current president from sources inside the USA. In the current round of the democratic process if governatorial elections it seems that the current stars & bars candidates (Tea Party) have taken a bit of a hammering in the polls following the shutdown of the govt, and the loss of welfare handouts to a lot of voting USA citizens that would have been slaves had the stars & bars got in for a term after George H.W. Bush served his 3rd term in office via his misbegotten son.

The Pakistani govt incidentally will ignore absolutely everything, hold out a begging hand to the IMF (again) and try their level best to shoot @ the USA whenever possible as a result of the USA neutral stance on the Kashmiri conflict which it regards as being "none of its damn business".

What remains to be seen is exactly what benefit the stars & bars regime of the Bush family had in being friendly to a bunch of religiously nutty slavers running an attempt @ a one party state in a multi party system. May have been association via similarity I suppose, as the stars & bars & the Taliban in particular had a very similar modus operandi albeit separated by a couple of centuries. End result was that they were looking @ shooting down the democratic party members one by one, while a bunch of idiot slaver associates flew passenger planes into major USA institutions in 2001 (remember that one)?

Handy the dems are in office @ the moment,(they don't like slavers).

The Indian govt is mired in wacko religious party factional fighting in a multi party state. Interesting thing is that the infiltrations across the Kashmir border ended after the head of the Taliban ended up as pork (burnt) following a drone strike.

The Chinese govt shut down all reportage from Tibet & most of Xinjiang following monastic riots (Buddhist) in Tibet & Gansu just before the Olympics in China. Incidentally just before the Olympics a major quake (Wenchuan) Mw7.9 occurred along the longmenshan thrust on the NW border sector of the Sichuan basin. Turns out to have been a case of gaga (see prior post).
Tibet is still lost in a multimedia black hole.
Xinjiang occasionally appears on the news as a result of attempts by the Taliban to carve out territory NW of Afghanistan & failing by & large because the communists occupy the position they are seeking. There are too few reports from that dot on the map to work out if they are starting to go gaga. I do however agree with the Chinese shooting @ the Taliban, they just need to tone down the complaints when other states shoot @ the Maoists.

The Iranian govt is beginning to privately regret insulting the democratic party of the USA under Jimmy carter. I agree with the USA sanctions for the simple reason that they have not apologised & paid retributions for their actions affecting embassies of other nations. Tha fact that they are losing the war of lunatic Islamic caliphates through sheer weight of numbers of sunni lunatics does not mean that any letup in sanctions should be forwarded.
It IS interesting that Pakistan is not pressing for the removal of the Iranian nuclear program considering that it is most likely to become the testing ground... The Pakistani govt may not exist @ that time however so will be a case of wait & see.

Will continue to watch that space... & that little island.

Oops: almost forgot.

The Makran arc is in the late stage of recompression, an has a timespan of decades to a few centuries before the crust relaxes in a major backarc earthquake & a bloody great big tsunami.

SW.Pakistn & Iran are as a result going gaga as a result of stress from the Makran backarc basin. The area is also currently pasing magma from the uetta arc along strike in the arc graben. This magma is jacking apart the base of the arc & causing the top to fall in, via major rift quakes, which caused a number of deaths in balochistan in the past few years.
Eventually this imported mama will break into the base of one of the volcanoes in the central part of the makran which is the least compressed part. The eruption is likely to be fairly spectacular.
The magma incidentally having exited the Quetta arc left a small skin & a bit of partially melted sidewall behind which eventually erupted @ the least compressed bit of the Quetta arc @ Tor Zawar.
The magma is 2 stage being trachybsalt & trachyadesite comprising arc magma prevoisly filling the fracture & also the partial melt in contact with the fracture walls. The best bet volcano to be affected is Taftan (rather sulphurous).

Last major crustal relaxation quake to affect the Makran was about 6500 years ago or thereabouts, & was recognised as a major resedimentation event in the Persian gulf with quiet sedimentation above & below. The convergence rate via GPS from Arabia-Iran-Afghan block is ~2.2cm/yr with a bit of extra convergence via india-Iran-Afghan block which motly shortens the Quetta arc. Working out how many metres of recompression has occurred since the last event is a matter of simple math. Backarc basins also run out further than the recompression, so the eventual megathrust event will be fun to watch.

That little island may be a feature of compression of the forearc due to the ongoing magma injection event in the arc so it is definitely interesting. may be a few more of those little islands popping up in the next few years.

Organised crime is famously good at exploiting time-sensitive industries like construction, fishing, and — of course — garbage removal. But revelations about millions of tons of toxic waste buried haphazardly and illegally by the mob are causing an uproar in southern Italy, where cancer rates are nearly 50 per cent higher than the average in certain areas
