There is mourning in Pakistan over Mr. Holbrooke, the man who groomed Washington’s stooges in Islamabad and Kabul. Mr. Zardari beat them all by awarding the deceased Pakistan’s highest civilian honor. In Pakistani history, Mr. Holbrooke is definitely not a hero.
UK’s Guardian newspaper declared that WikiLeaks on India are fake. Really? Is US envoy Timothy Roemer’s cable of 16 Feb. 2010 calling Indian military “slow and slumbering” fake? Didn’t he call Indian military doctrine a “myth”? Guardian, along with NYT and a German magazine, ruined the good work of WikiLeaks by selectively releasing cables angled to attack nations at odds with US, British and Nato policies.
President Zardari risked his political career by insisting to visit his French buddy when Pakistanis were drowning in floods. Now, can he leash his Pakistan-bashing friend, please?
وکی لیکس نے ظاہر کر دیا ہے کہ ہماری قیادت کمزور اور عدم تحفظ کا شکار ہے۔ اس سے ریاست کے خلاف بغاوت کرنے والوں کے حوصلے میں اضافہ ہو سکتا ہے۔ اگر جنرل کیانی تختہ الٹتے ہیں تو یہ امریکا کے ساتہ کی گئی خفیہ سمجہوتوں سے فوری اور حتمی چھوٹ چھٹاؤ ہوگا اور ہمیں اس کے نتائج کے لئے تیار رہنا ہوگا۔ اس صورتحال سے نبٹنا، نظام حکومت اور فرد کے جوہر سے متعلق ہے۔ انصاف کی بات ہے کہ یہ بہت مشکل دعوت ہے۔
If Gen. Kayani is going to turn the tables, it will have to be a clean break and we have to be ready for the consequences.
The Pakistani chapter in the Mumbai investigations is a small part of a larger story that should be investigated with equal vigor. Mumbai should not become limited to settling India’s political scores with Kashmiri groups like LeT.
بھارتیوں کو سمجھانا چاہئے کہ کشیدگی بڑھانا آسان ہے اور ہم بھی یہ کرسکتے ہیں کہ 2007 ء میں بھارتی ملٹری انٹیلی جنس افسروں اور ہندو دہشت گردوں کے ہاتھوں بھارتی سرزمین پر زندہ جلائے گئے 69 معصوم پاکستانیوں کی سالانہ یادگار منائیں ۔
India’s case has weakened after two years but Washington is using it to blackmail Pakistan. Here’s how.
With the coming change of guard in Beijing, this is the time for Islamabad to reorient its relationship with its most enduring ally.
… and if so, for how much and whose palms were greased? Most Pakistanis missed a newspaper advertisement over the weekend that indicates that Pakistan’s elected rulers have no qualms conducting deals away from public scrutiny worth billions—even when there are public complaints about it.
Supplied by China, the helicopter is configured to carry torpedoes and is fitted with state-of-the-art pulse compression radar, low frequency dipping sonar, radar warning receiver and Doppler navigation system.
What part of ‘Kabul-Delhi-but-not-Islamabad’ that Pakistani officials don’t understand? You can visit India every quarter, Mr. Obama, but coming next door without dropping by is an insult. Period. $64 billion in Pakistanis losses, 5000 dead and a generation of Pakistani children orphaned by America’s war. Pakistani officials visiting Washington without talking about this do not represent the views of the Pakistani nation.
If Pakistani politicians fail to build consensus, will they agree then on the need to step aside, spare us their chaotic politics, and let the rest of us force changes into the system to allow new thinking and new faces?
See this slideshow prepared by Foreign Policy magazine. It doesn’t roundly condemn Indian atrocities, not yet at least. But considering the past, it is three-steps forward for the Am-Brit media, and hopefully the beginning of a trend that might help introduce the American people to unchecked Indian atrocities.
She is a minority Christian defending minority Kashmiris. This has infuriated Hindu zealots. But now mainstream India media is inflaming passions against her, creating an air of intimidation and fear. This is dangerous in a religious boiling pot like India. World opinion must ask India to stop the lynching cabal and hold it responsible for her safety.
