Pakistani Nuclear Program and Betrayal of Friends?

16 January, 2008

By Dr Shahid Qureshi


Many analysts agree that Pakistan don’t need enemy if it has a friend like US keeping in view the policy of betrayal, selfishness and leaving in lurch. “People of Pakistan are asking the way its nuclear program is being targeted in the US and West, one wonders if the friends of Pakistan are part of the problem or solution?” I commented on BBC TV on Tuesday 8th January 2008.

People of Pakistan are very well aware with the faces and the addresses of the collaborators their interests both in and outside, who are destabilising Pakistan.  The way others and US are following Indian agenda in the region is concerning and may lead to a situation which could go out of control?

The so-called leaders of the international community have lost credibility and leadership. They are considered more like pirates than peacemakers. Many believe that the US is self-harming and slowly dying in love of an illegal state with a limited shelf life? If that’s what they want then so be it? Many believes current bloody theatre in Iraq and threats to Iran, pressurising and targeting Pakistan are part of the US- Israel strategy including countries like India and others who just jumped the bandwagon.

According to analysts what could happen if Pakistan is destabilised or attacked? (a) More than 15 separatist armed militant movements currently going on in India would reach its boiling point and disintegrate India? (b) Certain countries could not afford two destabilised states with the 160 million and over 1 billion population in their neighbourhoods? (c) the whole lot of elite, friends and compromised beneficiaries of certain countries would be eliminated as happened after Iranian Revolution and this region might become out of bound and hell (d) reaction from 2.5 million retired and 600,000 active members of the Pakistani armed forces and public would be unimaginable for the invaders, their supporters and collaborators (e) Pakistan is not Iraq or Lebanon and people should learn from their experiences and come out of denial?

The only way forward seems to be is reality check, proper risk assessment without lies and deceptions, improvement of bilateral and multilateral relations to save lives, cut the losses and end this so-called dodgy war on terror?  Though it is appalling and disgraceful the way some politicians and establishment officials behave in front of junior foreign officials? They don’t represent the Pakistani nation?

According to one analyst in London, “The public in Pakistan and the press are alarmed and enraged at the New York Times story on Expansion of CIA Activities in Pakistan. The newspapers went ballistic about the idea of the American role expanding inside Pakistan but no political party reacted to the news. This is ominous. If the concern of the political parties is with the perks of power rather than with articulating the concerns of the people, responding with popular policies to address those concerns, and administering the country in accordance with law, the people will speak more and more through the barrel of the gun”.

One media analyst said that certain media groups were also commissioned to run media campaigns of late Benazir Bhutto as part of the US sponsored deal with President Musharaf?  Well looking at the media coverage one can easily detect the use of tools and techniques of psychological warfare, subliminal conditioning of the viewers, repetition of certain names and images’.  Why?

“Should UN be moved to a neutral place like Switzerland and restructured”? I asked President Musharaf in London in December 2005. He said, ‘moving UN to a neutral place would not make any difference but agreed with the reformation’. In 2008 the United Nations is in even more dire need of restructuring due to its failures to protect small and vulnerable countries. The UN Security Council is not more than an exclusive club of both winners and losers of World War II excluding Japan? UNSC does not represent the whole world even half of it. In last 60 years UN has failed to resolve important long standing issues of occupation Kashmir by Indian, Israeli occupation of Palestine and most recently Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon.

UN is not an investigating agency and has no jurisdiction to investigate a criminal matter inside Pakistan even International Court of Justice has no jurisdiction to investigate or accept a criminal case registered in Pakistan. Though with limited resources Pakistani security services are competent to investigate a crime. “There is no harm in sharing experiences and learning from the excellent London Metropolitan Police (The Scotland Yard), I replied to a seemingly hostile London LBC Radio Presenter few days ago. He was of the view that there are many unsolved murders here in London and time should not be wasted somewhere else.

As far as Rafique Harirere’s murder investigation by UN Commission is concerned one should look at the beneficiaries of this incident first (a) more than 20 thousand Syrian troops withdrew from Lebanon, (b) Lebanon was invaded and brutally bombed by Israel not to mention the atrocities to human beings (c) Lebanon is still destabilise. The UN Hararere Commission wanted to interview Syrian leadership? What for and who for?

The recent statement of IAEA chair Mohammad Alberadi about the safety of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons is deplorable. The whole world knows how and why Mr Beradi got the Noble Prize and Mr Hans Blixs didn’t? The IAEA’s role in Iraq is known to the whole world?

One analyst said, ‘Pakistan is not Iraq or Afghanistan and any attack on Pakistan’s nuclear assets would make 160 million Pakistanis one force beyond imagination stronger, tougher, lethal and that will make this whole region out of bound for the attackers and conspirators because all the collaborators and cronies meet their end. We know that US is preparing Israel to attack Iran if that happened the dream of Greater Israel would become a nightmare for the US and its interest. “Don’t underestimate the people”, said Kuwaiti Deputy Prime Minister in response to my question at IISS about the Hizbulllah – Israel war in 2006.

Many think that IAEA should be dismantled and may be replaced with another international body with membership to all declared and undeclared countries? Many strategists agree that United Nations, IAEA are a blackmailing and pressurising tools in the hands of few?

Nikus, Hungary - 16 January, 2008

In the third paragraph writer said, "According to analysts what could happen if Pakistan is destabilised or attacked? (a) More than 15 separatist armed militant movements currently going on in India would reach its boiling point and disintegrate India?". How does India came into picture and also doesn't this point suggest it is in favor of india to stabilize pakistan. Then why does writer has so much venom against india. What did india do to deserve this? Sold nuclear arms as walmart, killed its bengali brothers in millions who later were forced to fight for independence, used terrorism as proxy (because winning a direct war is impossible) against India and world at large, didn't treated its citizens equally, religiously and regionally, never had a respect for democrarcy, executed its leaders, and as far as kashmir is concerned why pakistan is fighting for more if it can't handle what it already has. Mr. writer you seem to know how to read and write english, do some research on all these issues and start thinking clearly without believing what your IIIrd class master told when you were a kid. When talking about India think in perspective. I am sure anyways though that editors are not going to post this reply. Good Luck..!!!

Pradeep, United Kingdom - 16 January, 2008

Nuclear deterrance of Paks

FIRST,THE WORLD KNOWS THAT PAKISTAN'S NUCLEAR ARSENAL HAS MISSILES THAT HAVE RANGE AND PROTECTION STRIKE ONLY ON ONE SPECIFIC DIRECTION AND TARGETS.AND THIS HAS KEPT THE WOLVES AWAY EVEN WHEN THEY ARE MADLY TALKING OF PAK NATION'S GENOCIDE IN CYBER NERVE WARFARE AND CYBER NERVE ATTACK ON THE GOOGLE INTERNET.I PERSONALLY FOUGHT THIS NERVE WARFARE ON THE NET AND, TODAY, YOU CAN GO TO NET ON PAK FORUM AND SEE ME EXTERMINATING THEM ALL IN MY VERY SUCCESSFUL SALVOS FIRING AT HALF DOZEN HINDUKO RATS OVER THE PAST ONE WEEK.

WELL, SOME THING OF SOME BODY'S LITTLE CONCERNED INTERESTS CA BE AS MUCH IMPORTANT AS LIFE AND DEATH FOR PAKISTAN.TWO NUKES ON HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI BROUGHT AN END TO WW2, WHILE OTHERWISE IT COULD HAVE STALEMATED INTO PROTRACTED WARFARE COSTING AMERICA MILLION LIVES OR MORE.JAPAN WAS RETREATING, FIGHTING, DYING AND KILLING.BUT JAPAN WAS NOT SURRENDERING.

PAK MILITARY IS DISCIPLINED, STRONG AND CAPABLE. YET IT IS ACTING WITH MAXIMUM RESTRAINTS.THEY DO NOT WANT TO CREATE A SITUATION OF DRIVING WEDGE IN NICELY KNIT AND BEUTIFULLY EXISTING PUNJABI PATHAN UNITY WHICH IS VERY ESSENTIAL FOR PAK INTEGRITY.ANY BREAK AWAY OF PATHAN FROM PATHAN-PUNJABI BROTHERHOOD WILL FINISH THE COUNTRY AND INDIANS, AS THEY ARE BRAGGING MUCH WITH BLOOD THIRST GENOCIDE OF PUNJAB.

PAKS NUCLEAR ARSENAL IS NO THREAT TO ANY COUNTRY.THE RANGE OF PAK MISSILES FALLS SHORT OF ISRAEL AND MOST IMPORTANT PAKS HAVE NO INTENTION OF USING THEM OTHER THAN THEIR LAST DITCH SURVIVAL BID AGAINST ONLY ONE AND ONLY ONE THTREATENING DIRECTION.

PAK NATION IS FULLY AWARE OF THE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL COLLABORATORS TO TAKE PAKS LIFE LINE OUT.

EVEN IN BB'S CASE, WE HAD LIKED HER .BUT SURE, WE DID NOT LIKE HER INITIALLY STATED NUKE STAND FROM OUTSIDE. BUT SHE CHANGED AND MODIFIED HER STAND WHEN SHE WAS IN PAKISTAN.BUT, IN CASE OF WOMEN, AS I SEE IN MY OWN NEICE, THEY CAN CHANGE AND CHANGE AND CAN BE BABY TRODDED FROM TEARS TO SMILES AND FROM HATE TO KISSES AND FROM SHUN OFFS TO INTIMATED HUGS.SO, BB AS A PRETTY WOMAN WAS APT TO DRAMATISE IT ALL TO LOOK AS MUCH PRETTY AND GOOD AS SHE EVER WAS.THEN, A WEEK AGO I PUBLISHED A TOCHY COMMISERATING POEM ON HER IN PAK TRIBUNE.WOMEN, AND PRETTY WOMEN, WE HAVE TO LEARN TO WORK ON THEM TO FEEL THE PLEASURE THEY REALLY ARE.I BELIEVE THAT SHE WAS A LOVELY KURDISH PERSIAN BEAUTY WHO DIED FOR AMERICA IN HER GREAT OBSESSION OF DEMOCRACY.

WELL COMING TO THE NUKES ISSUE, PAKS SURVIVAL AND STABILITY DEPENDS ON THE NUKES.WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN ITS POSSESSION AND A STRONG, CAPABLE AND DISCIPLINED AND UNITED MILITARY, PAKS CAN WITHER MILLION STORMS.

PAKS ARE RIGHT NOW IN WAR AND PSEUDO WAR CRISIS ALONG AND NOT FAR FROM BORDERS.ON TOP OF THAT INDIA HAS BEEN ON STRONG PAID AND PAYING OFFENSIVE TO BOMB BLAST PLACES IN PAKISTAN ALONG WITH CYBER NERVE DESTABILIZING ACTS.AFTER FIGHTING AND EXTERMINATING THEM ALL, I CAN TELL YOU THAT IT IS PLANNED AND SOPHISTICATED PROPAGANDA AND PAK DEIGNING NETWORK THAT I HAD TO SHOOT OFF WITH MY POETRY AND VERBAL TACTS AND I CAN DO OIT WITH MILLION FOLD VIGOUR AGAIN ZAND AGAIN.

PAK NEEDS TO PROTECT THE ARSENAL NOT FROM ANY BODY OTHER THAN A SURPRISE ATTACK FROM OUTSIDE. FORTUNATELY, PAKS HAVE THE DENCEST PAK OF MOUNTAINS IN THE WORLD THAT ARE ALL TYPES BOMB PROOF DEEP IN DEPTH.

PAKS HAVE ONE ADVANTAGE OVER TYHER VICIOUS AND MALICIOUS ENEMY IS THAT PAKS NUCLEAR BLAST POWEDER IS FROM CENTRIFUGED RAW MATERIAL.YOU CAN HIDE IT ALL IN DEPTHS, WHEREAS THE ENEMY'S IS FROM REACTORS THAT ARE ALLWAYS SITTING DUCKS.ONE ACCIDENT OR KNOCK OUT HIT AND THEY CAN START A CHAIN OF SELF DESTRUCTION.

BUT, MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO IMPROVE THE PUNCH AND SIZE OF THE ARSENAL.HUNDREDS OF MORE NUKES MORE AND ADMIXED WITH FOOLING DUMMIES WILL INCRESE THE REAL STRIKE'S EFFECTIVENESS AND GIVE THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF PAK'S REAL SECURITY AND KEEPING AWAY THE WOLVES.

JUST ENJOY MY POEM FROM CANADA AS SUCH

ALL US PAKS WANT AND SAY
IS THAT WOLVES STAY AWAY
WANT NO ENEMY OTHER THAN ONE
LINGERING YET, SINCE WE BEGUN
MUCH US PAKS UNITED ARE
UNDER THE FLAG,GREEN AND STAR
US PUNJABIS AND PATHANS
AND ALL SINDHIS AND BALOCH
LOVE KASHMIRIS AND OTHERS
THROUGH TOGETHERLY APPROACJH
DOWN WE SHOOT THE EVIL THING
TO THE TRUTH,YES, WE CLING
LOVE YOU A.Q.KHAN OUR STAR
SURVIVAL HERO OF PAKS YOU ARE

Poisonous perceptions

I wonder, why most of the Pakistani's are keeping hatred towards India and prejudiced in all their views towards India!. It seems the writer drags India into the picture unnecessarily. He is a representative of anti-India lobby and so the enemy of peace, because this wrong campaign fills Pakistani hearts with hate and distrust towards India for doing nothing regarding the subject mentioned. Everybody knows, India is involved in some of the incidents happening in Pakistan in one or another form. But that is "nothing" against what Pakistan is doing with India. Pakistan is being eaten by the same dragon you have created for troubling India and to disintegrate India. Most of us view, the developments in Pakistan as a well deserved fate, at the same time worried about the ordinary people. I do have lots of Pakistani friends. They are like brothers to me.
We do not have any design to destroy your nuclear weapons unless Pakistan become aggressive and stat to blackmail India.

My sincere opinion is, being a reputed news paper, paktribune should not allow this kind persons to influence the people of Pakistan, with this kind of poisonous articles.

Both India and Pakistan are earning nothing from fighting each other but losses a lot in that.

Manoj, Pakistan - 17 January, 2008

Pakistani Nuclear Program

It is lack of understanding that India is a part of any problem around as they are busy in raising their standard and growth all the time like Republic of China got no time to get involved in activities like US is doing. US is in domestic and international problems with their economy and fame. No one likes US, even EU members are running away and will have their forces pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan leaving US on its own. With the emerging markets and two big powers of Asia, China and India the Americans are more worried of their own existence and Dollar is going to be the history in few years time. Yuan is the strongest currency on this earth at the moment possibily followed by Indian Rupees. Giving an opinion in Paktribune on a topic does not mean that Pakistanis are against India but on the contrary they speak out what they think and must not be taken as true what they say. Some people like to blame others for they can't overcome. Its nice to note that Indians are worried about what happens in Pakistan but these small incidents do not change the speeds and directions of a country like Pakistan. A handfull of people can't change to worst. India and Pakistan are very close and are doing fine on international affairs and will not attack each other on the contrary they might have to confront together one enemy if time comes. United you can win and alone you fail. Pakistanis are with Indians though there are a few core issues which are keeping them apart but they will be addressed to gradually. One day both countries will help each other more being one RACE I.E. INDIANS.

Sad situation

The article by Dr. Shahid Qureshi brings to mind how some people buy degrees and diplomas, including of Doctorate. He makes no mention of who this one Analyst is and the whole article is based on crazy imagination than facts---no wonder some Pakistanis are so disillusioned, maybe they get their information from Dr. Shahid Qureshi.

The comments by Anwar Mahmood, Canada is even more sad,, even living in a beautiful place like Canada, he is so full of hate.
my prayer would be " Have mercy on Pakistan"



Arshad Ali, Pakistan - 18 January, 2008

At this rate UN got to be main Suspect as Alqaida

UN inspectors fooled around in Iraq with the killing of Kurds and Iraqis via Sanctions.World TV irresponsibly displayed Poison Made in India Chemical Drums for years.For each UN backed WMD with fake promotion of WMD bombed Iraq NUKE Lab and invaded Oil fields to raise own salary and wealth.
Now UN is main suspect as Alquada wing or alqaeda wing .They have Muslim World in their Grip.Promotion for UN Charter as a Holy Verse (replacing Quran sunnah) is a joke while hinduism buddhism and sikhism distribute hadith as 10 minute feng shu i fairwinds gloucestor MIT OsfordU amid mantra chants as their holy bood originated while entering room Wh rm towards protection from Islamist Satan.Pakistan NUKE have to have NUKE labs and ongoing R&D work like India Israel Riussia Japan USA Canada and elsewhere.

B _Lal, Hungary - 18 January, 2008

get real

The reason the US is worried about Paks nukes is because of all the religious nut jobs you folks have in your country. America says freedom of religion, but muslim countries, for the most part, say believe as we do or we'll chop your head off. Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you folks believe that Islam should, and will, rule the world? Well, I don't want any part of it. So I'm going to vote for someone who will lead our FREE nation to not allow this. You want to believe how you want to, fine. Remember common people, missles fly both ways. Pakistan should be worried about their nuclear arsenal. If one flies out of you country because some religious zealot set it loose, expect retalliation. See where we're at, talking about the deaths of millions of innocent people. Your security of your nukes should very much be on your minds, seeing how many religious nut jobs you have running around in your country. Blowing themselves up, killing potential leaders, and demanding your government bow to their words. Best of luck Pakistan. When nukes fly I wonder if you'll still be praising A.Q. Kahn.

It is not Americans..

It is not Americans or the United States policy to undermine Pakistan for its nuclear weapons. Its the work of Zionists in the United States Congress, Senate and government who are sacrifying the interests of USA, Pakistan and any other country for Israel. Its Israel which does not want to see a nuclear arm Pakistan. It was Pro-Israeli high ranking figures in the US goevernment who wanted India to put one million of its forces along the border with Pakistan.
I think, If Paksitan want to stop the bloodshed in the country must; know every diplomate and every foriegner getting into the country and must track the activity of those Zionists who are entering to Pakistan even from the friendly countries such as USA, UK and others.

United State is the most victim of the Zionists. They have power in the US Senate and they make about 38% of the US Congress. Furthermore; President Bush wholeheartedly, want to solve the Middle East problem by having Israel agree to creat a Palestinian state. But you see, the Zionists in Israel with support from the world Zionists, are making it look like President Bush told Israel to go after Hammas. I think President Bush knows who hit the World Trade Towers, he knows who are hurting the interests of USA but he can do only so much. His government is saffocated by the Zionists. Former secretary of Sate Mr. Collin Powel lost his job, because he stood with Pakistan and told India not to listen to Israel and the pro-Israel Zionists in the USA.

Long live Pakistan! And God Bless USA!



Akbar Khan, Pakistan - 20 January, 2008

This is mutual grace between the two great people.

WE ARE TRYING TO MITIGATE HATE AND ONE HAS TO READ WHAT INDIANS ARE OPENLY TALKING OF GANGSTER TYPE PRONUNCING TO DISMEMBER PAKISTAN AND ALSO PRIDING OVER TALKS OF FUTURE GENOCIDE OF OUR DEAR PAKS.

WHAT WE HAVE TALKED HERE ARE THE FACTS-THE FACTS THAT PAKS NUCLEAR ARSENAL IS NOT TO BE TAKEN MAGINALLY BY INDIA SPECIALLY.THIS ARSENAL IS FORMIDABLE BY REGION STANDARDS AND IS ERXPANDING.

INDIA RARELY, IF EVER TREATS PAKISTAN IN BIG BROTHERLY WAY IN CONTRAST TO AMERICA TREATING CANADA TENDERLY.CANADA IS THE MOST SELF SUFFICIENT COUNTRY IN THE WEST AND IT HAS NO SECURITY AND SURVIVAL CONCERNS LIKE PAKISTAN HAS.WE TRY OUR BEST TO DO CONTRIBUTION FOR CANADA AND I EVEN PUBLISHED MY WORLD CLASS PAPERS IN GAS ENGINEERING IN THE ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL GAS ENGINEERING CONFERENCES OF AMERICA.

BUT, PAKS SECURITY IS EMBEDDED WITH OUR BEST CHILD HOOD AND RECENT SWEET AND PLEASANT MEMORIES.THE COUNTRY PAKISTAN INSHALLAH WILL SURVIVE AND THRIVE.

CANADA IS GREAT, BUT IT IS PART OF HUMANITY AS WELL LIKE PAKISTAN IS.CANADA, PAKISTAN AND ALL WORLD IS PART OF THE GREAT HUMANITY THAT MUST NOT BE ENDANGERED BY ANY ONE. SMALL PAKISTAN HAS BEEN TARGETTED BY INDIA, AND MUCH IF NOT MOST AND ALL TROUBLES OF PAKS HAVE DIRECT OR INDIRECT ROOTS IN INDIA'S MEDDLING. I AM NOT MAKING THINGS UP. TASNIM ASLAM SAID THAT AND MUCH OF THE GLOBAL MEDIA IS TALKING OF THAT.SO, CANADA, AMERICA AND EUROPE AND PEOPLE LIKE US WANT TO SEE SMALLER PAKISTAN DEVOID OF TROUBLES AND PROBLEMS.AFTER ALL SWEET PAKS HAVE RIGHT TO LIVE IN PEACE LIKE CANADIANS AND IT IS THE DUTY OF THE WHOLE WORLD INCLUDING GREAT CANADIANS AND AMERICANS TO SEE THAT INNOCENT PAKS LIVE WITH PEACE OF MIND EVEN IF IT IS A FRACTION OF WHAT THE GREAT CANADIANS ENJOY.

HAPPY CANADIANS AND AMERICANS WOULD LOVE TO SEE HAPPY PAKISTAN LIKE OR NEAR LIKE THE WAY THEY ARE IN HAPPINESS.

THERE IS NO WRONG IN SEEING PAKS STRUGGLING TO ENJOY THEIR LIFE AND COUNTRY WITH COPY CAT OF CANADA OR AMERICA.HONEST AND PEACEFUL WAYS CAN BE PERFECT TOOL TO REACH THE CANADIAN WAYS.

IN SOME WAYS, PAKS ARE DOING EVEN BETTER. I COME TO PAKISTAN EVERY YEAR(SOMETIMES I CAMR THREE TIMES A YEAR)FOR STRESS RELIEF FROM STREESSED WAYS OF WORK AND LIFE.SO, YOU MIX AND MATCH AND THAT IS THE WAY WE ALL HUMANITY CAN FEEL HAPPY ABOUT OUR WORLD BY BRINGING IN THE HUMAN FACTORS OF ASSIMILATION.PAKS ARE GREAT, SWEET AND BEAUTIFUL LIKE CANADIANS IN MANY WAYS.

LET US FEEL THE MUTUAL GOODNESS AND GRACE BETWEEN AMERICA, CANADA AND PAKISTAN AND THAT WAY, WE CAN MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD SMILE.

I ADMIRE MR ARSHAD ALI'S COMMENTS OF BEAUTY ON CANADA. REST ASSURED MR ALI, I FIND PAKISTAN AND PAKS ALSO SWEET, LOVELY, LOVERLY, LOVABLE AND LIVABLE LIKE CANADIANS ARE.

THE SAD THING IS THAT INDIANS HAVE FAILED TO ADMIRE THESE GOOD TRAITS OF VERY SWEET PAK PEOPLE.

I CAN ASSURE MR ALI THAT STARTING THIS YEAR, I AM GOING TO SPEND A GOOD CHUNK OF MY TIME EVERY YEAR IN PAKISTAN SO THAT THERE IS MUTUAL PRAISE OF CANADIANS AND OUR DEAR PAKS.

ALLAH BLESS YOU MR ALI AND OUR DEARLY LOVED PAKS, WHO ARE DEAR LIKE CANADIANS TOO.

Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 21 January, 2008

Dear Ms. Japlin!

You are correct; all roads are not one way. Thanks God You are safe in USA, but how about those who can't defend them against the continued air and ground assaults of Israel for more then 60 years, now. If Israel listen to your president and the world community, there will be hopefully a world peace. Israel goes back to June 1967 border which is given to Israel by the UN and now the Arabs and Muslim world support it. Peace is the answer to weapons and not one sided judjment against Pakistan. Pakistan armed itself with Nukes because of Inda and Iran is trying because of Israel. Why can't we have a Nuke free wold starting with Middle East?

In your statement above you have pretty much generalized. You forgot to mention it's only 1% or less in the Muslim world who wants you and all around you convert to Islam, but there are more then 10% Jews rather see Muslim world gone, and gone quickly, for their oil and land. I hope USA,UK, UN and the rest of the worl be free of Zionists agenda, so the worl body can function normally. There are many Muslims, I know, that they neither agree nor support this 1% crazy Muslims.

Wholeheartedly, I think; Israeli grab on Palestine is greatly contributing to the hurrible bloodshed and terrorism around the world, but as your president trys helping Muslims countries adopting to democracy will help much.

God Bless America! Peace is the way to go.

Jamal Khan, Pakistan - 21 January, 2008

be aware

Pakistan,
Gather your people. Time is about to change for you. You must stop the druj. Your President is trying to help you, have faith. Your nuclear weapons draw you closer to dokhmas. As it does to my country. Hope for peace, hope for future. Thoughts, words, and deeds change us all.

Don't Listen to Politicians

For last 60 years our politicians got our votes by insiting us against India, Israel and others and we listened to them like mute lambs and we sacrificed ourselves without thinking whether what we were told were facts or lies.

Why should we control Kashmir, they were a happy bunch of people, before we intervened. Time to give peace a chance instead of hatred and then war, which will bring more hate and more war. But hey I am just a little guy trying my best to put food on the table for my family in an honest way, so you don't have to listen to me. Thanks for publishing this article.

Arshad Ali, Pakistan - 23 January, 2008

Friends or Scavenging Hawks?

Pakistan sacrificed its progress and much needed welfare of people to develop indigenous nuclear capability due to its ever increasing fear of India, who got its own nuclear arsenal developed more for fear of China than Pakistan.
Pakistan is in serious crises today, because of the new "world disorder" emerging out of 9/11, giving it a scare much serious than India because, the war against terror has now been diverted to its streets and peaceful corners, from abroad.
Analysing situation in Pakistan from wider perspective of international terror conspiracy, it is not any coincidence that, Bush Sr. had explicitly initiated and announced his much hyped declaration of, a "new world order." on mystical date of " Sept. 11, 1990". and started Gulf War. Strangely, exactly eleven years later, on the same mystical date of 9/11, his son started to finish what the father started. Junior Bush launched a war against the whole Muslim world in the shadow of a man who, he blamed wowed to kill his father. Now, some parts of the hidden agenda are beginning to emerge. A new "world order" which was necessary after the end of Cold War, is emerging which actually is, the start of a new "World Disorder". The "Polar Bear" has been tamed and shackled through courtesy of "Mujaheddin" of Afghanistan. Now, the same Mujaheddin are being used as a tool to kill their own roots, who are renamed "Jihadists" and made a covert "weapon of mass destruction" much more lethal than nuclear bombs, i.e., Suicide Bombs. Muslims are being bombed through their own kins, to kill the good name of their religion through a deep rooted conspiracy. It is giving an unwanted virtue a bad name before killing it.
Returning back to this debate, it is not a betrayal of friends, but the proliferation of hidden agenda of enemies in the guise of friends. They were never friends of Pakistan, ever since its existence. Pakistan's first Prime Minister was eliminated because, he tried to befriend Soviet Russia. The first "dictator" was frustrated out from the scene in spite of opening the "China Gate" for the masters because, he removed the master's airbases from a strategic location in NWFP, after the so called friend (not master) betrayed his country during 1965 war. The betrayal continued through 7th Fleet drama in 1971, which truncated Pakistan. Then, the mystery of elimination of the second PM due to his disobedience, for which he was warned, to be made" an horrible example", if he did not behave. Again, the second dictator was eliminated, although he fought the covert war for the friends but forgot in his hurry, not to scare the friend by calling newly created Central Asian Muslim states an emerging "Muslim Crescent", thus creating a terror which the friend found more haunting than the Bear. Actually, the same Crescent was target the Hawk had been eying ever since. It is still difficult to visualize that, the Crescent housed the the whole future of the Hawk's existence ! Al least, 500 years supply of OIL lying unknown in the sea bed of Caspian and areas along its shores ! Therefore, Hawk had no alternative but, to eliminate the game spoiling dictator, who was quickly brought down into oblivion. Finally, the third PM, who refused to listen to the master and exploded the nuclear devices, had to be declared a terrorist and given a lesson of his life.
The present dictator studied history better and is trying to play along. What are his connections, can be better understood from the story of Greg Palast's which appeared in the Guardian. The story linked Hillary Clinton's huge legal fees on unpaid billions of American and British companies that she represented with enormous financial interests. Those were not just any companies. One was a Tony Blair favorite,Britain’s National Power.The other was Entergy International,a sudden big-time player due to some oblique procedures involved. Despite the Clinton Administration’s claim to fight foreign corruption,this was an exception. Clinton and Blair voted to cut off Pakistan's funding from the IMF.Pakistan was told to pay-up the power pirates, or starve.The job was done to the satisfaction through Musharraf,who was later awarded with a takeover of the entire government in a“surprise” coup. Just months before he left office, President Clinton paid a sudden visit to Musharraf. Notably, the US Ambassador with Clinton made payments to the electric companies, a top item on his agenda. Favors done, favors repaid. Nothing new under the sun, but it’s a dangerous game the Hawks are playing.The problem of creating Frankensteins, whether an Osama or a Saddam or a Musharraf,is that, these creatures are often known to rise in their unchallenged and often misguided and illusioned powers and turn on their own creators.As one master's mouthpiece stated:"Given our experiences with Saddam and Osama,our monsters tend to get out of control after about 11 years".

M.Saeed, Pakistan - 23 January, 2008

you are druj

you try and inspire people to druj train of thought. You are, what we call in the Unied States, stuck in the mud. Support you free people, it sounds like you can do it.

asha, United Kingdom - 31 January, 2008

Eloquent & articulate

Nothing close to what Asha thinks sitting in a glass castle she even has a difficulty consulting a dictionary to know her Drudge from druj and still comes up with a grudge.
I hear you loud and clear love the way you have summarized such a long story in such little space.
Compliments to you as you are far above the drudge Asha is stuck in.
May Allah SWT secure our nation our homeland our Pakistan from all these vultures in-house and the ones hovering over.
