Pakistan army vs world armies

15 March, 2012

It looked impressive when the French army chief Gen Bertrand Ract-Madoux laid a floral wreath at the Yadgar-e-Shuhada outside the GHQ on March 13, a gesture of recognition of the matchless contribution of Pakistan armed forces' personnel and officers, by a coalition partner, which the Americans and other NATO member countries should also follow suit. Gen Kayani speaking on the occasion rightly said that the sacrifices made by the Pakistan army were more than that of the NATO forces in Afghanistan..."Therefore it required appreciation and not baseless accusations."

This leads us to draw a little comparison between the Pakistan armed forces and the contemporary armies of the world. The most unforgettable and, according to Karzai, "unforgivable" act of brutality in Kandahar by the American troops was killing a number of unarmed Afghan civilians. A number of similar incidents by the Americans remind us of the pressure and frustration they suffer internally as they do not willingly accept their postings into the war zones of Afghanistan or elsewhere in the combat areas. Recently, a Major of the US Army, in his headquarters in USA, opened fire on his colleagues and killed four of them, just because he was opposed to his posting in Afghanistan. One wonders whether the Pakistan Army troops face a similar kind of pressure or frustration while going into war. Why even a single incident of such kind has never occurred in the entire history of the Pakistan military? There might have been at the beginning a difference in opinion on whether or not the war on terror was the war of Pakistan, but later when it started engulfing Pakistan and hitting its security forces, the consensus and focus led to not only motivation but sweeping actions by the forces in which our troops' individual resolve for valour and sacrifice was seen at its peak. Not to mention that there have been over 3,700 martyrdoms in this ongoing war. But the great aspect, which is not highlighted, is the height of patience, resoluteness and resilience demonstrated by our men and officers during the course of this asymmetrical warfare. The inhuman attitude of US-NATO troops, like pissing on dead bodies and burning of the copies of Quran in Afghanistan shows the level of ethics and morality the troops of the most civilized nation adhere to.

unfinished story

Why the Pakistan Army does not have a mental break down which others are suffering off? For NATO forces the unseen Mujahadeens with daggers in their hand running fast against a NATO soldier shouting DEEN DEEN is too much for those funky kids of NATO, who otherwise though that it could be a cake walk for them, or some sort of picnic! Going bonkers is quite natural for them.

But scenario in Pakistan is entirely different. They policy is to run with hares and chase with hounds. I meant they know with whom they are running (Talibans) and chasing with Hounds (Pakistan Army) with grinning ear to ear smile fooling Americans completely.

Dear Editor, hope you to have enough guts to publish this. If you are not, well, I will not be surprised at all, as hardly any one in your country is capable of hearing criticism!

Salam Pakistan Army
Pakistan Army is a great combination of love, care, safty, and more than this a passion to save nation include its interior and exterior broders or edges.
I think without this kind of army we, Pakistani nation could not survive. When I think about the scarifice and bravery of our armed force I force to say that sory and thanks to our great army.
There is a reason that why should I feel sory for our brave soliders, that the force whoes duty is to guard our borders only, this force not only guard us from external enemies but also saving us from internal difficulties. They are serving there nation by developing institutes like NUST in the field of education, in medical by developing CMHs very high standered Hospitals. They rescue us from stroms, they become shelter of us in floods, they become secure and safe for during earthquack. They are trying to keep us one nation as in Blauchistan. Although they are facing harsh weather as in Siachan, sucide bombing of terroist on Pak-Afghan boarder but there morals are high like stars in the sky and strong as moutains.
Pakistani nation appreciat the zeal of Pak Army and also slute faimlies especially Mothes of Solders who have nobel thoughs as
"He is my only Child who give his life for Pakistan. If I have one lakh childere I gave them to Pakistan without the mark of sadness on my face."
Salam Pak Army.
Pakistan Zindabad.

Pakistan-army-vs-world-armies

We are a great nation, and a great Army. We are second to none. Whether its wars East and West, or Siachen tragedy, the Army is in good composure and with high morale. The Chinese premier said that one Pak soldier is equal to ten Indian soldiers. Our Army is the saviour of our nation in bad or good times. The mothers of Pakistan are eve ready to send their children to the Army for protecting our country's honour and dignity. Hats off to our brave and noble Army.

For Mr. Chowdhury

There is a very famous saying in India for the Jaats (not Sikh Jatts). Jaat -> 12 dooni 8, it means for a Jaat 12 multiplied by 2 is 8. So, in the name of mankind, come out of your superficial world. As far as china is concerned, they stole their initial gun power from India and they want India and pak to fight alot to have more foreign exchange. Also, your soldiers are no different. They may be good, but what's the logic of killing innocent kashmiris first and doing arabian stuff to their women then take name of Indian army. Do you know that your people were dressed as kash terrorists in 1999 in Kargil. Do you think that a great army's personnel will give up his uniform to dress up as a terrorist. The answer will always be no, other than in your POSSESSED minds. And, always remember the clothes that you wear, the food that you eat and the water supply system that you all dungers use are all invented, founded and documented by Indian Hindus only and no one else. More than that, you people don't understand the difference between right and wrong, that matters the most and you do that in the light of your crazy punk deep down folly epics. Shame on islam.
