What is Option-B at Afghan Theater vis a vis Pakistan? U.S. Air Strikes on Taliban Targets - - Who controls Taliban?
On Saturday, Taliban claimed victory over the United States, and on Monday resumed attacks on Afghan national forces. The victory was projected so much so that a few in the media proposed Nobel Prize for IK in bringing peace deal in Afghanistan.
Immediately after Doha agreement, President Ghani of Afghanistan asked Taliban to break ties with Pakistan as a precondition to release 5,000 Taliban detainees.
In reaction, the Taliban started attacking government forces in Afghanistan which resulted in U.S. airstrikes on Taliban in Helmond province.
The non-Afghan players were categorically warned of the deal not to mess up in Afghan affairs. Anyone trying to hurt U.S. peace deal in Afghanistan should expect American firepower in response, a tough statement issued couple of days back. The United States Afghanistan joint declaration stated the U.S. commitments to facilitate discussions between Afghanistan and Pakistan to work out arrangements to ensure neither country’s security is threatened by actions from the territory of the other side.
Why the statement be not taken as a warning in the light of allegations of being a hub of terrorist outfits?
These are the defining moments in Pakistan’s history and the consequences will have a decades long impact in the region. As I posted earlier, that with the Indian annexation of occupied Kashmir, the Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan are vulnerable to geographical transmutation of the region. The crippling economy in the country will further damage Pakistan’s security muscles. This is the making of Pakistan from within.
The controversy on Durand Line and FATA came in my discussion with the former Chairman of the United States Appropriations Committee, Late Senator Daniel Inouye while accompanied by American Icon, Ms. Joanne Herring, General John Bradley and Congressman Michael McCaul at Rayburn building at Capitol Hill in 2013. This meeting was arranged to avert U.S. sanctions on Pakistan due to IK’s Dharna while stopping supply line of U.S. troops through Pakistan. Damage control was done by me; however, I emphatically suggested the Pakistani oligarchy to avoid such adventures as these do not serve Pakistan’s national security interests.
I am afraid that the “SELECTED” dimwits lack of vision at world stage, or at the very least their anti-American agenda may prompt the execution of global option-B. The sidelining of the talented Pakistani pool is by design from within to harm the national priorities. Whose priorities supplants Pakistani expediencies from within Pakistan.
The message be taken in its entirety.
