Muslims will never get anything better than Pakistan. Should be proud be proud Pakistan. At least Turkey got some morality.

The Uighurs (and the Tibetians) most likely will suffer the same fate that of native Americans in the US. In the name of progress, the Han Chinese are spreading all over the south-west region trampling over the local culture. It’s known that any resistance from the natives is mowed down by the Chinese juggernaut. No pan-islamic movement can stand up to an authoritarian state like China.

It is well known fact that it milked billions from US in the name of fighting terror but diverted that money for something else. It’s words do not match its deeds and known for betrayal.
It might not openly support Uighurs to avoid antagonizing China. But it could well be encouraging Uighurs to fight by providing support behind the scenes.
It’s only a matter of time before China realises the role of Pakistan.

Official: Pakistan can help broker U.S.-Taliban talks
http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/07  /10/pakistan.taliban.omar/index.html

Two days back, when Hu got back to China from G8, he immediately got in touch with Kiyani and asked him to get rid of all talibans and alikes. China is now scared about Taliban trained Uigers. So under Chinese pressure, ISI invented this new game to keep all strategic assets alive for tomorrow.

Second, with recent intense drone attacks, Pakistan is realizing this is the only way to keep taliban alive. and ISI can kill so many birds with one stone:
1. Taliban stays alive to fight tomorrow if needed
2. Pakistan gets US billions
3. China can be convinced that Taliban disappeared or moved to Afghanistan and no longer Pakistan’s problem
4. Pakistan extort more US weapons and may be a nuclear deal from USA
5. Pakistan gets to keep anti-India terrorists
6. And Pakistan gets accolades and more aid as a peace maker

But the most important thing is:
1. Pakistan was playing double game with US/NATO since 2001.
2. Now we all know that ISI knows where is Mulla Omar.
3. If Pakistan had made this statement in 2001, 647 US lives and 1500 NATO lives could have been saved.

It is really tragic when you get allies like this!

US death toll at 647, NATO at 1450 …

“Pakistan’s military has declared that not only is it in contact with Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar but that it can bring him and other commanders to the negotiating table with the United States”

Sooner or later this will backfire and lead to uprisings like recently in Tibet and now in Xinjiang. Violence has always been Beijing’s answer, but there comes a time that the Chinese encounter an opponent not afraid of dying for their cause, that time may have come now.
