The Epicentre Of Terrorism In The World Is Not Afghanistan But Pakistan
They have so well camouflaged their intent by playing deftly into the no mans land between rivals USA, China and Russia. Pakistan first ran piggyback on the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, yelling murder, murder and like lambs, the Americans sensing a god send opportunity, blindly jumped into Pakistan’s frenzy and into their Ambush.
The Americans involvement not only financing but arming Pakistan to the teeth was a great opportunity for Pakistan to milk the naive and soft-bellied western world and kept the terrorist fire burning under the covert and invisible umbrella of Pakistan.
The Russians went away a battered lot but by then America had got itself so neck deep into the Pakistan’s knot, that to pull themselves out of their stranglehold was nothing short of a nightmare.
The Pakistani guile and patronage to their alma mater’s silent allegiance to terrorism as a state policy, kept the Americans cocooned in their ivory tower in a self-belief that they were the custodians and masters of what diplomacy and covert management of world crises was all about.
That the whole thing was shallow and a facaded has been proved time and again beyond doubt by the events that subsequently unfolded.
Pakistan was on the mat physically, financially, socially and was in a position to implode, but their guile got the better of the self-possessed Americans busy with retaining power and obsessed with domestic elections. The very hand that fed them has been engulfed by a storm of deceit, deception by Pakistan with the Dragon as a rudder.
From a pitiful condition to a fulcrum on which the future Course of an Axis rests on, Pakistan has pitchforked itself into a position of muscle flexing with an army of fully weaponised barbarians at its beck and call. And with the luxury of continuing with its deception of fooling the world, it becomes a cause of worry and a global headache.
The very Americans who perceivable threw a rope around Pakistan’s neck have ended up with a real rope around their neck and in the process have put the entire world at risk and on the feet of the emerging Axis - China, Russia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey and dreadfully so for all peace loving nations.
India has been fuming and fretting for years of Pakistan’s duplicity and Machiavellian trademarks, but for America to have been reduced to such a basic misreading of the landscape, may well be a case of a nightmare for our think tanks in India.
Today we have the worlds ugliest and sharpest barbarians from all over the world doubling as terrorists and converging with gusto with an official recognition from the greatest superpower on earth.
For their own selfish reasons they have put to risk the entire world, leaving behind an armoury which could be any terrorists fantasy and ecstasy. And Pakistan is smiling all the way into the lap of a rejoicing China.
America is the strongest nation in the world , but the current crisis has it reduced it to a ‘real Bull in the China shop' and the brains not brawn what the world needed was actually on the other foot. In this hour of self discovery, what it potents for India and how we manoeuver it will depend to a large extent on how the future trajectory unfolds in due course of time.
How America looks at itself with a bleeding nose and whether the future events run contrary to our perceptions , the American reaction still needs to be watched.
