I am still trying to get to grips with the aggression NATO displayed towards our brave soldiers but a deeper frustration is trying to understand the rationale behind this.
If one looks subjectively into this it is based on a number of recent factors. So let us join a number of the recent dots. We can begin with the upsurge in Western Media’s vilification of Pakistan in particular British and American media. The “supposed” capture and kill of OBL ( good riddance), I had hoped this would have brought closure even though as insignificant in real terms as he was, I believe he was killed in 2001 in Tora Bora ( google or you tube Benazir Bhutto claim Osama Bin Laden is dead). The OBL fiasco was the beginning of a tangible conspiracy hatched against Pakistan on the backdrop of Western Media demonization of Pakistani Military and complete disregard for our loss on a monetary/economic level and on the lives sacrificed for another’s war. The Rabbani assassination blamed on Pakistan and Afghan Taliban which was not so as Rabbani was sincerely trying to bridge the trust deficit that existed between Tajiks / Uzbeks and Pakthuns and genuinely offered a hand in friendship to Afghan Taliban. One needs to highlight this and question who would benefit from a divided Afghanistan, who signs up to the roger Blackwill plan. This then resulted in the Admiral Mullen outburst which still needs to be put into the mix when trying to analyse this whole sordid NATO affair.
The venomous media hate campaign was then notched up a dial or two against Pakistani ISI, the very in fact only real intelligence agency in the region that has helped put many bad guys away for the CIA and America’s war. The Haqqani government was the media target and its relationship with Pakistan placed in the spotlight but soon brushed aside when it was made clear that The CIA and America but also MI5, British Secret Service and half a dozen other agencies also were in dialogue with The Haqqanis. Rather than Pakistan be praised for the relentless support even when the nation wanted no part in this war, it allowed the drone attacks indiscriminately killing innocent Pakistanis to quench the thirst of war mongers in Washington and for that matter in Whitehall when in reality 90% of Afghanistan was in the control of Afghan National Resistance an umbrella term used to define all the groups allied to the Afghan Taliban under Mullah Omar. NATO’s ISAF force was clearly in disarray, the troop surge a failure and Admiral Mullen a defeated General.
The beginning of the end of US-Pakistan relationship rested around an inability to bring the Afghan Taliban to a reconciliation table and create an environment to allow a graceful end to this long ruthless war. The CIA and America denying a central role to Pakistan were unable to reign in Afghan Taliban on the backdrop of this were some very strong forces led by India seeking to destroy the honourable reconciliation. This was the Indian backed Roger Blackwill plan that seeks a sustained presence of ISAF for a considerable time and dividing Afghanistan on ethnicity re-arming the criminals known as The Northern Alliance who incidentally are a loyal Indian Proxy. This would most definitely engulf a violent civil war and struggle that will last another decade or more. The weak Northern Alliance would benefit from NATO/ISAF air cover and the Pakthun regions would be bombed daily via drones and ISAF Air Force and India would continue to harbour terrorists actively involved in the destabilisation of Pakistan to name but a few: Bramadagh Bugti harboured in Afghanistan by India and ISAF responsible for terror across Pakistan in Balochistan, Khyber and Karachi. The TTP would continue to exist as an organised terror group attacking Khyber and Pakthunkwa but also the rest of Pakistan. This is not what Obama intended nor did Zbigniew Brzezinski Obama’s Chief Advisor and author of the Grand Chess Board. He sees being allied to Pakistan as key to the long term economic strength of the American and Western Hemisphere. Brzezinski a chief architect of the modern great game led by America and ISAF says the following;
“We have to find a way of helping Pakistan cope with its problem in Pakistan but also help us cope with our problem in Afghanistan and that raises an extraordinarily complicated question, namely how do we give the Pakistanis the reassurance they want that if we leave Afghanistan there is not a regime in Afghanistan other than the Taliban which is more friendly to India than to Pakistan.”
Brzezinski is clear in establishing a long term commitment to Pakistan one of mutual benefit and recognises Pakistan’s credible and real regional threats. It is clear somewhere down the line the Brzezinski policies towards Pakistan which as Obama’s chief adviser have been hijacked by the Roger Blackwill plan backed and funded by India. There are some grave questions on just who murdered Rabbani and why are efforts to reconcile with Afghan Taliban through Pakistan being side stepped. Something is not right in capitol hill some very strong lobbies are very aggressively anti Pakistan namely the Zionist and Indian lobby’s. Has the Obama government been breached by these strong lobby’s seek the war to be escalated into Pakistan but also seeking a long term presence inside Afghanistan. When Brzezinski was asked who is the lynch pin to American Alliance in Central Asia asked in favour of an Indian approach. Brzezinski replies the following;
“Well if it is then I don’t understand what the Eurasia strategy is because if that is the alliance, then we are not going to solve the Afghan question and if we don’t solve the Afghan question but the conflict continues, how will the relationship between China and Pakistan, which is quite close, be affected by an American-Indian alliance, and what will that do to the prospects for stability on a larger global scale between China and India?”

But American inability to reign in the anti-Pakistan groups at home in America and within the Karzai government has seen the great game change dramatically. Pakistan has recently made leaps with its relationship with Russia through China. Pakistan is in the forefront of recreating a greater integrated Central Asia via strong road links, air links and business to business links involving Russia, China, Saudis but also The Iranians and Turks. All this without the involvement of America but who can blame Pakistan after its treatment across America and Western Media while silence on Kashmir they are also courting India as a counterweight to China the hall marks of a future cold war or proxy war that will almost definitely effect Pakistan. America is losing Central Asia, Russia is asserting itself and China already has a lot of good will in the region, the cold war divides are not working the world is a different place and America is aware she is on the losing side. NATO is seen as a hostile organisation and most if all not all look to the rising influence of the SCO. The great game has taken a turn and objectives and long term strategic goals at times have been side-lined or clouded by adopting additional harmful strategies and one such is not to reconcile the Pakthuns (Afghan Taliban) and deny them governance and arm and support the Northern Alliance yet again. Turning a blind eye to the destabilisation of Pakistan by outside actors to establish a further long term strategy of containing China.
The NATO provocation and aggression was unprovoked and is not an isolated incident but part and parcel of a greater game or dysfunctional long term strategic objectives which behave very Jekyll and Hyde towards Pakistan. NATO has lost all credibility firstly in the Libya onslaught and now lying over the Pakistan aggression, on Tuesday Afghan Taliban in the Kunar region have reported that they were not engaged in any battle, confrontation with NATO forces and this is a lie that they or any group affiliated to them were being chased by NATO and ANA soldiers. The Afghan Taliban in Kunar have vacated their bases in the Kunar as they move up to safer hideouts with the impending colder winter months upon them. NATO’s aggression towards Pakistan is one of aggression, unprovoked and needs to be seen part and parcel of a wider conspiracy against Pakistan and derailing the reconciliation efforts to bring peace to Afghanistan. With this unprovoked illegal transgression on Pakistani soil coming only days before the Bonn conference was it an intention to isolate Pakistan from this conference. Are the powers seeking to divide Afghanistan and engulf a bloody civil war, the real killers of Rabbani who wield much influence in the corridors of power in Capitol Hill through a number of lobby’s may well have sought to derail the Pakistan agenda at the Bonn Conference.
Pakistan’s reconciliatory approach had been welcomed by Iran, Turkiye, Central Asian States, China, Turkiye and Saudis all who are immediate neighbours and have a real stake in Afghwanistans long term stability. America too had recognised and signed up to Pakistani efforts but there still remained those who are a very small minority inside Afghwanistan who hold office and in India that had opposing views. It will be interesting what the outcome will be minus Pakistan at the Bonn Conference. Already a british team a key NATO member is on route if not there to speak with the Indians before the Bonn conference.
Pakistan has been an honourable stakeholder in bringing real long term peace to Afghwanistan. Many Pakthuns in Afghanistan were born in Pakistan when it gave shelter to millions of refugees during the Soviet War. Many Pakthuns never returned to Afghwanistan and there are more Pakthuns living in Pakistan than there are in Afghwanistan. No nation neighbouring Afghwanistan or further away has as much as love for Afghwans as Pakistan and Pakistani do and no nation has paid more the price for freedom in Afghwanistan as Pakistan has. What Pakistan had to endure, the public humility an organised PsyOps campaign to vilify the nation, its people and its military and intelligence service deliberately by Western and Indian Media. The sacrifice of life at the hands of a group coined by the Indians as Pakistani Taliban to create an artificial association with Afghwan Taliban known by its real name as TTP (Tereek-e-Taliban) a non-Pakistani terror group operating from safe havens inside Afghwanistan. Blackwater black ops scarred the nation through destructive bombing campaigns and the indiscriminate killings by the American drones. A flourishing rising economy collapsed because of the war that has cost Pakistan far much more than one can imagine outstretching the aid provided by American NRO’s that never leaves the pockets of the most pro-American and corrupt civilian government.
Pakistan I pray for you and always have hope for Tayyib-e-Madinah the very meaning of Pakistan in Arabic.
