Instead they mount an operation and expect Pakistan to control the flow from both sides. How unfair.

They are used to short term solutions and do not have a history of making long term decisions. They are trying to get out of Afghanistan with a face saving act. Afghanistan cannot be set right overnight. Its culture is very ancient and very deep. As soon as the Americans leave, war lords will pick up their weapons and go to war with each other. Imagine being a neighbor of such a nation. That is why Pakistan tried to bring order by creating the Taliban and it worked. The only problem is that Taliban would only go so far as to listen to Pakistan and had its own agenda. The mistake on their part is their fierce support of Al Qaeda against all odds.In the long run, Americans will leave. And Afghanistan will return to its old ways and Pakistan will be burdened with refugees and will be forced to act on its own. And Taliban will return. There is no other way to bring stability to Afghanistan. To the Western eyes the Taliban appears brute and primitive. But that is the only thing that can contain the elements inside Afghanistan.So I simply do not know what the American objective in the region is – is to get the Al Qaeda leaders? is to bring democracy in Afghanistan? is it to control the region remotely? They can never wipe out terrorism from the face of the earth. They need to state their objective correctly first before dropping their bombs. They have simply added to the chaos. Pakistan was a stable nation before they entered the picture. Now its has been forced to bear the brunt of everything and accused of all ills. Pakistan’s objectives are local and never global. We have our own issues and external threats to deal with.The Americans will never win this war. They will create more chaos and more wars. With their economy on the brink, they will make some really foolish short term decision that will make things much worse than before. And the Indians will celebrate it. This is the moment where all Pakistanis have to stay together and fight with the greatest resolve. And we will.

For your reference:http://blogs.reuters.com/pakis tan/2009/07/17/taking-the-fight-to-pakis tan-from-afghanistan/#commentsI like this quote “Amateurs talk weapons, professionals talk logistics.”

You must be dead sure you really want to attack Pakistan before you attack. Lets see if you have the stomach for a war with Pakistan.- Posted by Umair–Oh, please do not scare Costanza/Americans/the rest of the world because the rest of the world does not have the nuclear technology yet. Pakistan is so advanced that it is learning to fly the planes using water. US-Pak war (what a joke!) means toal withdraw of financial aid, preventing the world bodies to help also and squeezing the oil supplies. Talking about “rest of the world”, Chinese are not getting into this mess to help Pakistan for their own reasons. They did not help in 1971, and this is 2009. Indians no nothing about fight and has yet to learn to spell NUCLEAR, so INDIA might be very susceptible plus India lost all the wars against Pak makes it all the more valid (..lol).Now please please please do not hurt America and the rest of the world with your Nukes since Pakistan has 170 million strong population and a professional army, while the rest of the world is just over a tiny billion with un-professional army.Do not give heart attacks to the bloggers…too much laugh can cause that.

Bark a few times and get US to foot the bill with more aid.Everything looks as if there is no strategic plan or vision, displaced people are just herded around the battle zones and Talibans cruising around Pakistan.Everything seems to be Pak’s clever ploy to drag the US into more confilicts and milk more & more money in the form of fighter jets and ammunitions and wealthy lifestyle for the Punjabi elites.US Army has come on a mission and it cannot be complacent on Taliban like the Pak Army. Their mission is, was and always “Kick” the Taliban. The battle has been a while and it is apparent that Taliban will sneak in on all fronts in Pak, with the connivance of Pak Army it is possible to push them in Kashmir too… I hope the recent satellites launched by India for monitoring infiltration pays off here.With already an ethnic flare up in Balochistan against the oppression, coming weeks should be critical.

Time to play nice should be over.
