Pakistan will defend its sovereignty at all costs as the situation in Afghanistan is getting complex, Pakistan’s military high command considers that terrorism in Pakistan is fueled due to porous Pakistan-Afghan border which is not adequately sealed. Pakistan is also being pressurized to seal off Pak-Afghan border. Project that sealing the border is not only the responsibility of Pakistan. Gen Kayani was satisfied with the military and stabilization operation being carried out in FATA to restore and sustain peace. Pakistan would not tolerate any incursion on its territory.
US insistence for an early operation against Haqqani Network in North Waziristan is uncalled as Pakistan Army has its own priorities and compulsions. It will act against the militants at a time of its own choosing after assessing its national interest but there is no doubt on Pakistan’s commitment and efforts to establish peace in Afghanistan.
Pakistan has no such desire and General Kayani has our rightly rejected such misleading perception reiterating that Pakistan fully supports peace and stability in Afghanistan. The Pakistan Army Chief significantly maintained that US has been informed that Pakistan does not require any military aid.
General Kayani has reassured that Pakistan has no intention of launching an armed action in North Wairistan and there is no question of a compromise on national honor in developing relations with the US.
Us is playing a double in Afghanistan, blaming Pakistan for allegedly providing sanctuaries to Taliban who attack US/ISAF in Afghanistan while supporting the anti-Pakistan – Taliban (TTP) to undertake terrorist activities inside Pakistan.
Recent US focus on Haqqani Network appears to be a part of bigger scapegoat scheme perceived by US military high command and CIA to save their face and insinuate against Pakistan Army and ISI. It is unbelievable to see US asserting that Haqqani Network is the only hurdle against victory in Afghanistan or the only reason for US failure.
US has seriously destabilized Pakistan in the process and it seems that Pakistan would have to face more grave problems once US exits from Afghanistan. US allegations against Pakistan Government, Army, ISI appear to be based on psychological campaign aimed at giving divisive messages, in which embarrassing and well coined information is given forcing the target audience to respond or engage in desired activities.
Indo-Afghan strategic partnership in a US scheme to position India in Afghanistan with strategic advantage not only to bring Indian boots on Afghan soil but also to encircle Pakistan and be able to check China. India would also be engulfed by terrorism, as Indian boots in Afghanistan would provide a good reason for Taliban to plan their operation in Kashmir as a retaliation measure. Indian soil will not remain safe of terrorism as war against terrorism will spread to India and other regional countries. Hence, US must not allow Indian boots inside Afghanistan.
Stability in Afghanistan will remain a far possibility till all the stake holders including Pashtuns and Talibans are brought to one page. At the same time concerns of regional states like Pakistan, Iran and China also need to be addressed through a cool thought out process rather than using sizzling arrogance of Power.
As per Mathew Rosenberg’s report (Wall Street Journal), US held secret meeting with Afghan Taliban (Haqqani Network). The meeting was held month before the Sep 13 attack on US embassy in Kabul This indicates that on one hand US publically scorns Haqqani group for violence in Afghanistan and also accuse ISI for supporting them and on the other hand US is making behind the scene efforts to negotiate with Taliban including Haqqani group,. While Siraj Haqqani, so of Jalaludding Haqqani , in a BBC interview, categorically denied taking orders from ISI. He also said Americans were in touch with him to persuade him to enter into talks with Afghan Government. It needs media coverage.
CIA along with Indian RAW are involved to create conditions in Karachi, Baluchistan and FATA to destabilize Pakistan. US agents have connections with Pakistani Taliban who not only launch attacks inside Pakistani soil but also undertake other terrorist activities to cause damage to Pakistan. Such acts of sabotage and terrorism are openly sponsored by CIA, which indicate double game being played by USA.
Afghan Defense Minister General Abdur Rahimullah Yousafzai Wardik’s statement that the attack on Burhanuddin Rabbani was planned in Quetta and that suicide bomber, Ismatullah, was a Pakistani from the border town of Chaman but what about attacks of armed groups of militants inside Pakistani territory enjoy protection and sponsorship of US / NATO forces?
Strategic Partnership agreement between Afghanistan and India has decisively put India in the center stage of endgame in Afghanistan as it awaits US / NATO to pull out of that country by 2014. Project that US is using this war to make India a regional power, besides pursuing her regional goals to be achieved. Pakistan’s concern that India is storing enough water to limit the supply to Pakistan where water is used as a “common resource”.
