Pak Military under its Seasonal US PruningBy A Khokar • Jun 21st, 2011 • Category: Politics, Worth A Second Look • 29 Comments
All the states in the world, they have their militaries but in Pakistan, its military has a state of its own and is virtually in command and control of its rein. The present day civilian democratic facade seen erected there, serves a phony facade just to facilitate the safe sailing of military through the troubled waters on the high seas of American imposed War on terror in this region; where Pak military acts as US proxy.
But the irony is that facade and the mask of democracy since put up there is not entirely Pak military’s own idea. This bears its origin in CIA overall plan to create US anchorage in this region and to be in control of Central Asia, where as Pak military as a US subservient is executing the planned operation as a facilitator. Pak military, a recipient of large scale US perks also sees its own survival in it.
Some three years back when General Pervez Musharraf was asked to step aside; the master mind of masked facade of democracy, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, then the chief of ISI ( known as the creator of NRO); was handed over the rein of the state.
Whereas US is very much paying the costs of Pak military operations conducted in the area; it also pays and supports the makeup of the facade…of democratic government in Pakistan which is obviously made of impotents and corrupt to their core stooges like Asif Ali Zardari, feeding on US aids and other perks and largesse.
The present day cuts and trims seen, unleashed and applied by CIA through its subversive onslaught against Pak military and its command leaving Pak military humiliated in the eyes of masses and its position undermined— is just a seasonal pruning of a proxy—- to cut and keep it to its size.
Lately the 139th Corps Commanders conference press release of 9th June 2011 is the most distressing communique ever came out from the offices of ISPR speaking the frantic state of mind of battered bunch of generals giving all but the tales of colossal military failures and the setback of recent events. It’s every single sentence is so revealing of US intelligence entrapment of our forces as how the CIA that once the company of which our military used to cherish at every step; all of a sudden was seen simply walking away from that relationship, leaving the entire set up of ISI and its net work, lying flat on all its four limbs down in one single CIA blow of Abbotabad stealth raid operation. Later other incidents, of Mehran Naval base Karachi, torturing and killing of Journalist Saleem Shahzad, Killing of young boy by Rangers and the Akhroatabad inciden, only they kept on adding to the list of failures.
With due apologies to Mirza Ghalib:
Bara shour Suntay they Hathi Ki Dum Ka- Jo Dekha tou Bas ek Dhagia Tangi thi
It is not difficult to ascertain that the military command of Kayani lately seen showing its somehow potent muscles toward US will eventually be sidelined and may be dumped as a spent cartridge—– like his predecessor—- Pervez Musharraf.
Question is that; where has that Virtue of wisdom, sincerity , benevolence, courage and strictness of the high command gone, which is known to have always stood up firm and steadfast?
Sorry to say that the way Habib Jalibs would have described the situation;
