While it may be a source of comfort to a few yet, the most have shown concern over the announcement of Gen. Raheel declining any extension in service given to him. Their main concern is the unfinished task of eliminating terrorism in Pakistan.  If I may, let me assure them that anyone succeeding Gen. Raheel will have no other option but to continue with his policy(ies) in this respect. I think there is a strong overall feeling in the armed forces  that there is no alternative to “Pakistan First” and every other consideration is subservient to it.  Therefore, the army chief, who so ever he may be, would have to keep in view the such sentiments of the force that he commands. I am sure by now the authorities know that no three star general can reach that height in the army unless he has the requisite ability, years of practical experience and the overall merit to make it. They would also know that the matter of choice and preference seldom works in w! inning over personal loyalties – cases in study;  Zia hand picked by Bhutto  and Musharraf by MNS. It would, therefore, be just in order and most appropriate to pass on the command to the next senior most Lieutenant General in line.  No one should have any fears from anyone as long as he/she/they also keep in mind and work for “Pakistan First”.
