They never thought that Mujaheddin they were raising to to Fight Soviets will one day come back to haunt.

They played with Pakistan in 1980s and Pakistan gave back to them in 2001-2014.

It costed more than trillion dollars and thousand of american lives fighting the WRONG enemy in Afghanistan … while epicenter of terrorism was there in Pakistan Military/ISI. America could have attacked terrorist centuries in Pakistan, arm twisted Generals …. they could have closed the war in one year flat with just $100 mn dollars expense.

A sixth grade student could figure this out …. not sure why CIA/American Govt/Political apparatus was not aware.

Pakistan’s foundation is based on negativity/hostility towards Non-Muslims …. This will lead to destruction only … As we are witnessing/witnessed over the years in IRAQ/SYRIA/EGYPT/LIBIA/NIGERIA/IRAN/YAMA N etc Muslims are killing muslims.

In Last 65 years Pakistan decimated its minority population(hindus, christens and sikhs – population down fron 25% at independence to less than 1% today) …

Its turning its head to minority muslims sects like Shia, ahmadiyas, ismailis, bohras, barelvis, sufis etc … (They are 20-25% of population today)

Unless Pakistan course corrects and sets +VE vision/development agenda for itself – its future will remain in peril …

He had pretty well decided his future actions on Poland when he signed Molotov-Ribbentrop, and he did execute 20,000 prisoners. Stalin hated the Poles, and that started long before 1944.

Commies are coming, commies are coming. It was CIA who invented the Jihadi movement with the help of Saudis and ISI. They all are scratching each others back. There is saying when you are in Coal business, expect to have your face and hand black.

It is a terrorist nation, and India is right to keep them at bay.

The Karzai (and current?) power in Afghanistan seems similar, and current Iraq. So any agreements/alliances/deceptions with outside powers such as the USA maybe just become cards in the local poker game, played for gambits and perhaps trumped.
So my sympathy for the US State Department etc, or India, trying to get a clear win-win.
