Pakistan’s Iran BluffBy Gul Raiz • Feb 19th, 2012 • Category: Politics • 4 Comments
Divorce is out of question between the superpower and Pakistan and we are just a mistress and are treated that way and the way we are pouting in front of superpower is also one proof.
Aerial supply line is intact and almost eighty flights are going over our skies on daily basis, and then we have also allowed the containers containing “books for Afghan kids.” Do we think that the world is silly or the common public is? This cosmetics blockade must end, and we must be straight about this.
The trilateral summit with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Pakistan was aimed at, among other issues, addressing how Islamabad should facilitate negotiations between Afghanistan and the those who are fighting. It was also our way to tell the superpower that we could side with Iran, if need be, and that’s another bluff.
Sunni majority Pakistan would never accept Iran and Shiite Majority Iran would never warm up to Pakistan. Besides our whole economy and reigns are in hands of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and how could we even breathe about it. We took special permission from Riyadh to get Mahmoud here to press the superpower a little bit more, and KSA doesn’t mind our naughtiness in lighter way.
But everybody knows that we are just hollow pipes. Its about time we stop deceiving ourselves and the world at large.
