Indo-US Targets Pakistan! Friendly Destabilization
10 June 2016
By Dr. Abdul Ruff
Though minor in strength and economy, Pakistan is among very important Muslim
nations. Having maintained good relations with Saudi Arabia and Iran, Pakistan
has played important roles in Islamic world but, unfortunately, also has been
aiding the anti-Islamic nations as well. That is source s and cause of tragedy
Pakistan played mediatory role between
USA and China and brought them together in many ways and today, Beijing is
seen subsidizing the American economy and capitalism, thereby boosting the
imperialist tentacles of all anti-Islamic nations, globally.
Islamabad has not been able to identify or choose its allies.
By helping USA and NATO in invading, terrorizing and destabilizing
Afghanistan, Pakistan has committed a big sin, willingly or otherwise.
It indeed unfortunate that right from its inception as a new soverign nation
in Asia to look after the legitimate concerns of Muslims who hitherto had
suffered heavily as a minority in united India under British rule, Pakistan
has suffered mainly due to Indian ill-focus seeking make it a weak and
destabilized nation. New Delhi has used all techniques to achieve its
objective in Pakistan which now stands destabilized and economically weak.
Today Pakistan is being contained not just by India but by both
USA and its new strategic partner India which has made efforts to shift its
allegiance from Moscow to Washington to retain Jammu Kashmir's occupational
status. Pakistan while the sport Islamabad receives from china is unable to
force the Indo-US duo moving about with Asia pivot to stay away from
destabilizing Pakistan any further.
It appears, India
also achieved to split US-Pakistan relations to some extent. A weak and
destabilized Pakistan is the target of US led capitalist-imperialist nations
which it has served so long for obtaining mere service charges. With US
kicking its major non-NATO ally Pakistan in order to make India happy,
Pakistan finds itself increasingly isolated.
Pakistan finds itself in isolation. Possibly Islamabad had never expected its
NATO boss insult and abandon Pakistan once its objective of destabilization of
Pakistan has never been a strong nation in any respect: in economy, politics
technology, territory – not even promotion of Islamic faith as a Muslim nation
in South Asia. As for sports and technology Pakistan is a failed state, unable
to secure a firm policy for sports and technology except missiles and nukes,
thanks to China. Today, Pakistan is big zero in intentional sports arena even
in a fake sport called cricket which the Pakistani government promoted as the
only ''useful'' sport for its 100s and 50s making Pakistani batboys the
In fact, in order to make Pakistan look a big zero even in false sport
Cricket, jointly schemed against Pakistani bowlers and got them out of
international cricket and Pakistan has to suffer because its American masters
ask them to do more on genocides of Muslims in Pakistan and Afghanistan and
earn the ''needy'' service charges from USA and EU. Pakistan should also know
part of money it receives from USA belongs to India which regularly pays huge
sums for the continued support its Kashmir claim and for containing Pakistan.
Pathetically, Pakistan is not at all bothered about its weaknesses in every
field as it makes its plans only to suit Indian strategic cases. This method
caused Pakistan heavily for when India is moving fast in economy and
technology, Pakistan is stand still, hoping the USA or China to help and do
the thinking as well as for Islamabad. This has been the outcome of a
dependent policy Pakistan has pursued so long and deliberate attempt to block
non-rich and non-aristocratic families from ruling Pakistan.
Interestingly, all efforts by Pakistan to forge ties with Russia could not
take off as both India and USA applied pressure on Moscow not to promote and
help stabilize Islamic Pakistan. Russian President Putin was supposed to visit
Pakistan on an official agreement but he abruptly cancelled the trip without
even specifying the reasons for his harsh action. Obviously, Putin's behavior
belittling Islamabad made New Delhi happy and contented. China put India,
seeking big status as being a strategic partner in its place by refusing to
let it enter the NSG.
USA is well versed in all tricks of bullying Pakistan to coerce it do exactly
what CIA wants. Recently, a former top American diplomat has said the USA
should adopt a policy of ''total isolation'' against Pakistan to send a signal
that it faces the prospect of becoming a ''second North Korea'' if it
continues destabilising Afghanistan by supporting the Taliban and Haqqani
Such a policy would send a signal to Pakistan that it faces the prospect of
becoming a ''second North Korea'' unless it changes its course on Afghanistan.
Khalilzad was the highest ranking Muslim American in the history of the United
States. He was the US Ambassador to the United Nations under President George
W Bush. He also served as the US ambassador to Afghanistan and headed the
country s diplomatic mission in Iraq. ''If Pakistan truly changes course, then
the US should be willing to be supportive in a significant way. But we have to
substantially escalate the cost of Pakistan's hostile policy in Afghanistan,''
Obviously, USA exploited vulnerable Pakistan for its domestic and foreign
needs as its alliance added credence to US lies. Following the Sept-11hoax,
Washington easily bullied Islamabad to support the US cause by letting NTO use
Pakistani territories for its anti-Islamic terror operations first targeting
Islamizing Afghanistan and gradually killing Pakistanis themselves and its
military personnel. Pakistan willingly supported all nefarious operations
because of India factor.
Over decades of joint operations by USA-Israel on the one hand and
USA-Pakistan-Turkey on the other made Pakistan a weak nation depending on
foreign aid to sustain its military spending to catch up with fast rising
Indian military. Not just a weak nation, but Pakistan is also rendered a slave
nation now, unable to decide its requirements as USA refuses aid to Islamabad.
Had Pakistan not joined Indian agenda for invading Jammu Kashmir by annexing
parts of Kashmir, perhaps, Pakistan as newly born soverign nation would have
freely devised its plans and programs for the better designing of a strong
USA did not let Pakistan to become a strong Islamic nation to advance the
Islamic curse along with other Muslim nations, especially Arab nations and
Iran and Turkey, for instance. Later, USA made Pakistan a Muslim nation
supporting led terror operation as Islam.
Today, Pakistan is a major pauper puppet regime of USA seeking for a comity of
puppet nations in Islamic world.
Earlier, as Pakistan was all out supporting the NATO terror operations in
Afghanistan, Washington had given Islamabad to understand that whenever, if at
all, NATO leaves Afghanistan the USA would make Pakistan the controlling
nation of Afghanistan plus all terror goods left behind in Afghanistan after
the ''war'' would belling to Pakistani military. It was just a hard mischief
played out on Pakistan to encourage the regime to actively participate in the
genocides of Afghans which Pakistani military did in perfection. . .
In order to make things easy, USA has used India to upset Pakistan's plan for
future Afghanistan. ''In the aftermath of the US drone attack killing Taliban
leader Mullah Mansour, increase the pressure by suspending all assistance to
Pakistan — military and civilian — and move towards isolating Pakistan
internationally, including not supporting IMF renewal of financial support,''
Zalmay Khalilzad, a former top American diplomat in the Bush Administration,
said. Khalilzad, who played a key role America's policy towards Afghanistan
and Pakistan and Iraq after 9/11 terror attack, said the US should adopt a
policy of ''total isolation'' against Pakistan.
India fails Pakistan
Right from the day one as a soverign nation Pakistan always has to be on the
heels preparing for dealing with any deadly eventuality with India. Then
onwards, Islamabad spent all its resources and entire attention on making WMD
to take the nuclear challenge from New Delhi very seriously. And Pakistan also
became a nuclear power. Like India, Pakistan also refused to sign the NPT
after getting nukes arsenals.
Constantly ill-focused by its Hindu neighbor India from which it ceded to form
a soverign nation meant for protection of Muslims and promotion of their
genuine interests, Pakistan sought to protect its interests by aiding a
capitalist-imperialist USA. USA also brought anti-Islamic Israel to be friends
with Islamic Pakistan while Israel began selling terror goods to Hindutva
And, how far Pakistani military is strong or modern enough to face the new
threats from all sources around is not clear as yet. Pakistani regime failed
to protect its citizens, protect the interests of Islam because it (Musharraf)
attacked the mosques, killing the Imams in order to protect the interests of
foreign nations that are deadly anti-Islamic. Pakistan began thinking in US
mode and refused to protect the Islamic faith and Muslim interests.
When India, with help from Soviet Russia, blasted it first bomb against all
nuclear regulations of UN and IAEA, Pakistan became too scary and worried
about its exultance as a weak nation vulnerable to Indian provocations.
The point is Pakistan's energies were wasted on dealing with challenges of
Hindu India as both share parts of neighboring Jammu Kashmir. In order to
retain the parts of Jammu Kashmir they occupy in their own ways, both India
and Pakistan used the nukes as deterrence.
As India got all sorts of help from Moscow, Pakistan leaned towards the USA
for help, but the US help does not come free. As Pakistan moved to get aid cum
military assistance from Washington as return favors for helping the
anti-Islam8c forces in killing Muslims, Pakistani planning has fallen apart.
Pakistan has taken US help for granted and needs to understand the complexity
of post Cold War and relations with Pakistan's two neighboring states.
Pakistan has absolutely failed to maintain robust relations with its all
neighbors. Over years of over dependence on US money and terror goods for its
existence has brought Pakistan to become a destabilized and confused state.
Surveying all its immediately neighboring countries except China, Pakistan has
maintained ties with Nepal and Sri Lanka but failed to sustain good relations
with Afghanistan, China, India and Iran. This indicates a failure of Pakistani
foreign policy in a region that gave rise to its isolation, which will have
serious existential repercussions in the long run.
Pakistan's obsession with India has strained its western border, affecting its
own Pashtun population on its side of the Durand Line, mainly in Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa and FATA. Movement across the Afghan-Pakistani border generates
revenue for both Afghanistan and Pakistan. The two countries exchange goods
and services worth some 2.7 billion Euros ($3 billion) annually across the
Durand Line. Despite the illegal trade and smuggling, both countries benefit a
great deal from cross-border movement.
Even though a wrong notion was spread in the media about USA supporting and
helping Pakistan, the fact is that it is China that has been helping Pakistan
even with nuclear development. Both are not one of the fastest relationships
developing in the world.
The idea of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor might work for its eastern
border but not for its western border with Afghanistan, whose own dynamics
must be recognized. The Durand Line as a border is much less relevant to
ordinary citizens than to the state. Poverty, poor infrastructure, healthcare
and other important state functions tend to be precarious on both sides, and
the weak presence of the state has left locals on both sides to provide for
their own needs. Pakistan needs to realize that hostile relations with
Afghanistan are unsustainable in the light of its growing regional isolation.
Logic fails while Indian economy is steadily rising; Pakistan is getting
weakened day by day. As India's power in Afghanistan expands, especially its
soft power, Pakistan is losing its position of economic and strategic
privilege. Since India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, he has
paid two visits to Afghanistan. On his first visit, he inaugurated the new
Afghan parliament building that was built with the support of Indian
government, while on his second visit on June 4, to the heart of Asia, he
inaugurated the $290 million Indian-funded Salma Dam, one of the country's
biggest hydroelectric projects. Pakistan, on the other hand, has been dealing
with the awkwardness of either stating its reputation or support for the
Haqqani group or the Taliban insurgent leader Mullah Mansour, killed in a
drone attack on its soil.
In fact, America's Asia pivot targeting Russia and China has brought China
still closer to Pakistan as India crawls faster toward USA and Israel- the
nations that hate Islam and promote fascism and imperialism.
Weak Islamic faith and crisis
In fact, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia gave credence to American claims of Islamic
terrorism and USA used both to propagate anti-Islamic themes, including
Islamophobia. But o when it achieved the goal of killing millions of Muslims
in what looks like a permanent war on Islam and making Islam look like terror
religion, USA dropped Pakistan and adopted India as a strategic partner.
Pakistan has absolutely failed to maintain robust relations
with its all neighbors. Surveying all its immediately neighboring countries
except China, Pakistan has failed to sustain good relations with Afghanistan,
China, India and Iran. This indicates a failure of Pakistani foreign policy in
a region that gave rise to its isolation, which will have serious existential
repercussions in the long run.
USA and its western
allies have isolated Pakistan and Pakistani puppet regime is at fault for its
facing isolation now. Pakistan is Islamic only in name sake and the fervor it
had when the Islamic nation came into being in 1947 is no more in the vogue.
US led war on terror or Islam has made Pakistan look like an anti-Islamic
nation, helping all anti-Islamic nations on payment basis. Pakistan does not
openly help India because of the Kashmir issue.
post-9/11 involvement of the international community in Afghanistan and its
commitment to quelling the Taliban-led insurgency have, however, left Pakistan
regionally and internationally isolated, despite its involvement as a key ally
in the War on Terror.
Pakistan readily agreed to US
demand for Pakistani lands for the NATO troops to pass through to attack
Afghanistan. Possibly Pakistan regime thought if it did not agree that would
give opportunity to India on a platter and USA and India would jointly attack
Pakistan on the lie that Osama has sneaked into Pakistani tribal areas.
Any way USA did attack Pakistan as well after the fall of
Afghanistan even while Pakistan was helping the NATO, killing many civilians
and military personnel.
Regionally, the leaders of Iran, India and Afghanistan have signed a historic
deal to develop the strategic port of Chabahar in Iran, and agreed on a
three-nation pact to build a transport-and-trade corridor through Afghanistan,
which could not only help strengthen regional connectivity by boosting
economic growth in the region, but by the same token reduce the time and cost
of doing business with both Central Asia and Europe. Pakistan's suspicion of
India threatens to entrench relations of conflict and competition at the
expense of cooperation and stability with all its neighbors. The knee-jerk
reaction of Pakistan's foreign policy to the Chabahar port was to close down
the Torkham border crossing with Afghanistan and enforce visa restrictions for
both sides of the Durand Line, leaving those on both sides in the lurch.
Many speculate that the tightening security at the Torkham
border is a political move rather than a curb on militant activities
Sure of getting the left over arms of NATO forces in Afghanistan as well as
the nation of Afghans for control after the NATO leaves it, Pakistan has
failed to utilize the shared cultural, linguistic, economic and ethnic
realities of its western borders, while India has moved in to execute huge
economic development, both real and symbolic, of the Afghan state. Despite
having a Pashtun president in power in Afghanistan, and the Pakistani
establishment's claim of having forged closer ties with Afghanistan's Pashtun
population, ties could not move beyond the historic burden of Pakistan's deep
involvement in Afghanistan.
Indian contrail mechanism
The post-9/11 involvement of the international community in Afghanistan and
its commitment to quelling the Taliban-led insurgency have, however, left
Pakistan regionally and internationally isolated, despite its involvement as a
key ally in the War on Terror.
Following the Kargil War in 1999 with India, Pakistan faced international
isolation, and national anxieties shifted to its western border, in order to
stave off the very real risk of nuclear escalation with India and continue
with its proxy war in Afghanistan. Pakistani foreign-policy makers and mostly
military elites thought that acquiring the upper hand in Afghanistan and
containing the warring tribesmen next door would be a much easier task.
India has been exploiting the isolationist and weakened position of Pakistan
to its own advantage.
Regionally, the leaders of Iran,
India and Afghanistan have signed a historic deal to develop the strategic
port of Chabahar in Iran, and agreed on a three-nation pact to build a
transport-and-trade corridor through Afghanistan, which could not only help
strengthen regional connectivity by boosting economic growth in the region,
but by the same token reduce the time and cost of doing business with both
Central Asia and Europe.
Pakistan's suspicion of India threatens to entrench relations of conflict and
competition at the expense of cooperation and stability with all its
neighbors. The knee-jerk reaction of Pakistan's foreign policy to the Chabahar
port was to close down the Torkham border crossing with Afghanistan and
enforce visa restrictions for both sides of the Durand Line, leaving those on
both sides in the lurch.
The anti-Islamic and
anti-Pakistan spirit that Indians and their teams display in tournaments is
missing among Pakistani team and players. One gets the impression they don't
want India is defeated and they have to help India save its bi brotherly
prestige as the deadly faces of a defeated Indian team would be horrible to
watch. Or, maybe Pakistanis are really weak. Not very sure
International relations are governed by two basic facts, rather plain truths:
there is no free lunch and there are no permanent enemies and friendships in
international politics. USA helped Pakistan for its own causes in South Asia
Depending too much first on USA and now on China for their economic assistance
and defending itself from possible Indian maneuvering and attacks, Pakistan
does not seem to have any clear cut polices of their own but only follows what
the USA and Saudi dictates, supported USA on its own to keep India out of US
reach, but the US ally Saudi role in pressuring Islamabad to make Pakistan a
safe place for the NATO terror gangs with its target on Islam and Muslims,
Pakistani policymakers regard the instability of the western border and its
Pashtun population's sacrifices rendered easier to deal with and placate than
any disturbance on its eastern border of Punjab, in the context of
Pakistan-India relations and engagement with Afghanistan.
Foreign-policy makers interpret the shift in border hostilities
from east to west as being in the broader national interest of Pakistan, and
they consider tragedies like the Peshawar Army Public School attack, where 140
children were mercilessly killed, or the young lives lost at Bacha Khan
University, as collateral damage in the pursuit of Pakistan's core national
interests and territory, particularly Punjab.
of USA, Pakistan has failed to utilize the shared cultural, linguistic,
economic and ethnic realities of its western borders, while India has moved in
to execute huge economic development, both real and symbolic, of the Afghan
state. Despite having a Pashtun president in power in Afghanistan, and the
Pakistani establishment's claim of having forged closer ties with
Afghanistan's Pashtun population, ties could not move beyond the historic
burden of Pakistan's deep involvement in Afghanistan.
USA knows too well that there are potential risks in isolating Pakistan, with
continuing the current course in Afghanistan and Pakistan and therefore has
called for having a contingency plan to deal with the nuclear scenario risks.
Indians say the role that Pakistan has played is that of a
double game. It has signaled that it wants to be helpful to the USA in
fighting terrorism and stabilizing Afghanistan. But in reality, it has been
energetically supporting the Taliban and the Haqqani network to achieve the
very opposite. ''That has been the essence of the Pakistan policy on
Afghanistan,'' they said.
A sovereign state's foreign policy changes with the times, and according to
its domestic needs and external changes in global politics. Nations have
national interests, and there are no permanent enemies and friendships in
international politics. Neighboring states can be a boon or a bane, depending
on the ability to recognize one's long-term interests of sustainable peace on
Pakistan currently has strained and difficult relations with all its neighbors
except China which is helping with military and technological briefs.
While India has moved beyond the Cold war mindset, seeking profitable links
with various countries of the ideological divide, Pakistan has been unable to
define its foreign policy and national interests beyond a Cold War paradigm.
An India-centric foreign policy, focusing on Kashmir as being a part of the
country, has stalled Pakistan's natural foreign-policy evolution and tainted
its worldview of international politics. However, even though Pakistan is
eager to make fronds with Russia, USA and India do not let Moscow pursue it
sown foreign policy.
Even while Pakistan would try to formulate its foreign policy at macro and
micro levels, it would still expect change of mind in Washington for easy
money. That is the problem which Islamabad must confront and over come.
Time is overdue for Pakistani government to search for alternative sin
politics, economics, foreign policy and international relations. It is quite
likely Pakistan incapable f of changes, and so it may not change at all. But
for other Muslim countries seeking ''ties'' with enemies of Islam like USA,
Israel and India have a fundamental lesson to learn from Pakistani bitter
