He is a fool to believe that the nuclear response would be decided by the politicians in an orderly fashion. People whose hands are on the trigger are not likely to wait for the orders from the top, but instead would start firing nuclear armed rockets as soon as they learn about any hostility from India. The ten minutes would be more than enough to completely devastate the entire sub-continent. Let us pray for sanity and peace in 2010.

This was established by the independent commission set üp after the Sept. 11 attack. Anyone with a common sense should have known that the next bombers would most probably be from Africa, since after Obama’s presidency the controls in the US on Afro-americans were likely to laxed. The US war on terror ignored the Greek, who said that war is bad in that it begets more evil than it kills.

Kapoor just stated recently that India is preparing to fight China and Pakistani simultaneously?”

People will make what they want of what they read. As far as I know these are reports, not attributed to Gen Kapoor. One report a few days ago mentioned that India was fine tuning its war plans to take on a simultaneous threat from Pakistan and China. The other was TV report which said the Indian Army is prepared to take ona two pronged threat from Pakistan and China.

To interpret this as implying that Gen Kapoor said India is ‘preparing’ to fight the two countries (as if war were imminent) is a figment of the imagination. If anyone thinks that countries do not have war plans on how to counter a perceived threat then they might as well believe that they don’t have an army at all. Crude rumour mongering?

Umair:
You got distracted. PLease read your and my posts again.

Also, I would request you to send me a link that mentions Gen Kapoor has given the statment you mentioned. Somehow I cannot find the original statement by Gen Kapoor although I have seen lots of reports about several statements (in various forms) attributed to Gen Kapoor. Like PA Gen Majid, I am also doubtful of the ownership of the statement. Go check again.

Back to the main point:
My post was on YOUR following specific point:
“At one end are the so-called ‘Jihadists’ who have distorted islam and used violence and at the other end are the zionist-American neocons.”

I said Pakistan itself has used Jihadists to fight its own wars by labeling it as fighting for Allah.

Did you read Gen Kayani’s statement:
“An army supported by 170 million people, with faith in Allah, is a formidable force to reckon with,”

and then you say:
“can someone account for the inhumane Abu Ghraib prison abuses in Iraq by US military?”

But can someone as concerned as you of human rights explain the gencoide of E.Pakistanis by Allah’s Army in 1971?

Come on! Abu Gharib was unfolded by none other than Americans while Allah’s Army has not even apologized for 1971 genocide.

PA with a history of killing million of its own people and the so-called Jihadis (talibans or LeT types) fall in the same category. Both (mis)use Allah’s name to achieve their unholy objectives. I think I do have a point here.

That means before General Kapoor gave this statement, you were perfectly happy with Indian generals, right?

BTW, If you go back and read your own post and then mine, you will find that you are way off the discussion. I was specifically responding to your comment as if Pakistan is washed with milk and honey as far as “Jihadis as stooges of Britain/US” is concerned.
you said:
@At one end are the so-called ‘Jihadists’ who have distorted islam and used violence and at the other end are the zionist-American neocons.
“And as with Britain, over the years it has become a stooge at the hands of the Americans.”

Now, is there a doubt that LeT, JeM and other sisterly groups supported by PA generals. BTW, read my post and take my label of PA generals as hardliners as a compliment–meaning some PA generals are perhaps non-hardliners.

General Kapoor is just talking and not doing anything to bring a drop of blood from Pakistan’s little finger nor is any terrorist a stooge in Indian Army’s hands. Can you do a bit more search and bring me Gen Kapoor’s original comment. I have seen many versions of his comment and even Pakistan is suspicious of this statement or at least what exactly he said. Any such news, when it reaches Pakistan, wakes up all sleepy heads.

His comments are perhaps meant to keep PA generals on leash- –who in your own words feel in Pakistan’s best interests to wage small or big wars every now and then. Perhaps General Kapoor feels noticed that PM Singh is doing the job of being friendly with Pakistan and history has shown that India’s friendliness is taken as a weakness by Pakistan (Remember Musharraf, ex-Indian PM Vajpayee and then Kargil).

Now, let us get back to your original discussion and my point. Watch yourself before you accuse Americans/Brits.

Wish you, all authors and readers a happy and safe Year 2010.

-So Rajeev you are not aware what Indian Gen. Kapoor just stated recently that India is preparing to fight China and Pakistani simultaneously? and also you must know Pakistan’s Gen. Tariq Majeed’s reply that let alone China, India even knows what Pakistan Army can and what Indian Army cannot pull off militarily. So i would call Gen. Kapoor a hardliner and foolish Indian General messing with two armies in its neighbourhood both of which have access to nukes. Lack of strategic acumen.

“Should the United States open new fronts in emerging al Qaeda bases….” Myra

I think that this so called war on terror is basically a US war on terror to safeguard its own property and citizens. To be effective internationally, mind you it will never be a war where victory can be declared, I think the US needs to take a fresh look at its attitude to terror.

According to US thinking it needs to garner support and partners in its fight against terror organisations only when and as American interests are threatened. Unfortunately all the Obama musings on the subject also point in the same direction – ‘with us against us syndrome’. What is needed is co-ordinated effort and commitment to overcoming terror everywhere. When Americans are involved, the US wants to go in gun blazing and expects the world to bend over backwards in support. When others get hit; Bali, London, Madrid, Mumbai etc the US offers support and expertise. This is not to decry US cooperation, but to highlight what I feel is wrong policy.

Even in Pakistan, the US is concentrating and applying pressure on Pakistan to fight against those who threaten US interests and security. The other daily terror strikes in Peshawar, Karachi, Pindi etc seem not to concern them. This is not how an international war on terror should be conducted.

Would an attempted terror strike like this one have got so many people jabbering over it, if it had occurred in Bangladesh or Sri Lanka? If the answer is ‘no’, as I think it is, then there is no international war on terror. What we have is a US war on terror which it wants to internationalise.

Posted by Umairpk

–Then you will also understand that there are other “Jihadists” (LeT, JeM, Afghan Taliban) who have distorted islam and used violence and at the other end is Pakistan.”

So both zionist-American neocons and Pakistan hardliner generals fall in the same category.

Isn’t it?

Don’t kid yourself, again.

Sunni Taliban claim Karachi bloodbath as a statement to protect prophet Mohammed’s honor.

Sounds like a Saudi Wahhabia inspired, funded and mentored train of thought and philosophy. It seems the Sunni and Shiite empires are possibly on the verge of a type of war that humanity has never seen nor contemplated.
