تحریک پاکستان کے سپوت اور پاکستانی صحافت کے بانی کی سانحہ سقوط مشرقی پاکستان پر لکھا ہوا اداریہ جس میں انھونے اسوقت کے پاکستانی حکمران اور میڈیا کی کمزوریاں بیان کی اور دکھایا کے کس طرح ہمارے دشمن کو ہم پر فوقیت حاصل ہوئی۔ انھونے ھندوستان کو سفاک دشمن قرار دیا اور مکتی باہنی کو غنڈوں کی صفت سے نوازا۔

Two persons in Pakistan must be watching Tunisia closely: President Asif Ali Zardariand Army chief Gen. Ashfaq Kayani.
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.
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?
At an event organized by the British Army for world militaries to compete in toughness, with 750 soldiers participating worldwide, Pakistani soldiers bagged the Gold Medal for being the toughest soldiers capable of patrolling in the most difficult conditions.
It is said Pakistan is ignoring direct US military attacks and border violations because of sovereign commitments to the US made by the Musharraf government and now the Zardari government. But should the Pakistani military comply with those?
The paranoid elected government of President Asif Zardari has been out battling shadows and ghosts, whipping up anti-military sentiment when the military never planned a coup of any sort against him. His problems are with the Supreme Court on legal grounds. To calm frayed nerves, it appears Gen. Kayani agreed to let Zardari and Gilani issue a statement on the three’s commitment to ‘defending’ democracy. Pakistani military could also be bound by ’sovereign guarantees’ given as back as 2007 stating that Pakistani military won’t destabilize a government created through the US-sponsored NRO deal.
The ‘Feudal democracy brigade’ is causing the greatest damage to this country and the Pakistani middle and lower classes are the hardest hit. All institutions must play a role to prevent a national collapse and the Pakistani military is no exception.
A Smart Coup: Why One Last Military Intervention In Pakistan Remains A Possibility
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—If it comes to a military-led intervention, both military officers and politicians will have to stay out of actual power. The army chief may not become a chief executive. The military might have to look into a new concept called the ‘Smart Coup’, where the military can bring capable Pakistanis to power with a firm executable plan of reform over five years, or more, fully backed by the military. There may not be time to put the plan to vote. It will have to be implemented. This would be the absolute last option. But we are nowhere near that right now. Gen. Kayani certainly has no such thing in mind according to people who have met him.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Seymour Hersh might have come up with some absurd findings, like concluding that religious extremism has multiplied in Pakistan because no one offered him Johnny Walker Black during his recent visit. But apart from that, Pakistan’s national security managers should sit up and take notice of one glaring fact: The US media and some circles in the Washington establishment are behind the worst global demonization campaign against Pakistan. This is denting national morale and forcing Pakistanis to question if their military is capable of defending the nation, since politicians have proven to be a disaster.
The Pakistani military rebukes US Ambassador Anne W. Patterson and her government’s Pakistani loyalists and warns that Islamabad alone has the right to decide its national interest in accordance with its priorities and not in accordance with those set in Washington DC.
This report, first published in August 2008, is reproduced here to provide context to the determined Pakistani military operation against terrorists coming from Afghanistan. Pakistan’s largest English-language daily, The News, ran this on its front page, written by Kamran Khan, an investigative reporter who has worked for The Washington Post. The mainstream Am-Brit media continues to ignore this story and keeps the American and the British public unaware of the double game that their governments are playing in our region. Two senior U.S. military officials who secretly visited Pakistan in July 2008 faced tense moments when former President Musharraf, Army Chief Gen. Kayani and the ISI chief at the time confronted them with evidence that portrayed a pattern of American support for separatist, sectarian and religious terrorism inside Pakistan with help from Indian intelligence operatives based in major Afghan cities. The two embarrassed Americans, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen and CIA Deputy Director Stephen R. Kappes, came to lecture Pakistanis on what role ISI should play but ended up receiving an earful. It is a rare inside story of how Islamabad confronted Washington about what appears to be a clear case of betrayal, where Washington conspired with Karzai and the Indians against its own staunch ally.
