Comments on: Afghanistan: a long war, and still in search of a strategy Perspectives on Pakistan Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:31:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: W.Wardak Thu, 09 May 2013 08:52:31 +0000 Dear Myra MacDonald,

All afghans appreciate your outstanding article about Durand line. Why?

Its based on facts!

The best solution to terrorism is to divide Pakistan on basis of tribes.

1. Most Punjabis wants to be with their brothers and sisters in Indian Punjab. So it should become part of India. They share 99% of their culture with punjabis of India and share nothing with Arabs, except religion. Even a good non-arab muslim is treated as slave in Arab countries.

2. Sindh, Balochistan should become separate states.
3. Pashtonkhwa should become a state or join Afghanistan.

As a result their would be no tribal areas, no Place for Pakistani ISI to train and hide terrorists.

Since creation of Pakistan, it attacked India 3 times. Attacked Indian parliament and Taj mahal hotel attacks.
With out misusing religion, Pakistani army has no reason to exist!

2. People of Pakistan are hostages of Pakistani generals.
3. Solving Duran line issue means, solving Terrorism and avoiding another 9/11 and 7/7 like attacks.

WRT Pakistan’s competition with India. They’ll be toast if they try to keep up. All India has to do to break Pakistan is pull a Reagan, ramp up defence spending and increase aid to Afghanistan severalfold. Pakistan will bankrupt themselves trying to keep up.

I think the Pakistanis are smarter than that. But then again, from time to time they prove me wrong.

Else one would not ignore the desire to throw out foreign invaders and their puppets by calling Resistance ‘insurrection’ rather than the natural desire of people to design their own destiny free of the robbery of colonialism.

Let me show you a page from the history of Afghans. The talbans shall take over the control over the entire Afghanistan as soon as the foreign troops leave. Mr Karzai or his follower shall be allowed to administer the affairs with the foreign Govts. from Kabul and the consulates in selected countries.

This is my educated guess and I am prepared to bet with two cents.

I’m not sure why USA don’t do that ???? IS POLITIC OR WHAT ???
KARZAI is a TRAITOR, SLAVE OF SAUDI & TALIBAN and PUPPET OF PAKISTAN and nothing he did for the last 11 years, and he killed one by one the none Pashton people and he was behind burned QURAN in Bagram, and most of crimes in Northern of Afghanistan !!!!

By: davidap Fri, 07 Dec 2012 02:47:02 +0000 Karzai is traitor and Slave of Saudi Arabia and puppet of Pakistan and he is Brother to Taliban and they are from same tribe as Pashton.
Karzai is a Sneak and he is responsible for 99% of crimes in Afghanistan, just for to keep his tribe in power.
Pashton tribe is # 1 Fascist in the world and hold the with the help and being Slaves of these country like RUSSIA, SAUDI ARABIA, ENGLAND and PAKISTAN for the last 270 years and they did every thing to not lost the power, even they killed their FATHER, BROTHERS, COUSINS and lots INNOCENTS NONE PASHTON PEOPLE to be the KING ……. Is true & fact …!!!!
G. W. Bush & Dick made huge mistake and betrayed NORTHERN ALLIANCES ( N. A. ) when they help Bush ( USA ) in 2001 to beat the Taliban in one month and they should hold the powers, but instead BUSH fooled by Pakistan & Saudi Arabia and appointed Karzai another Taliban and he work for Taliban and they are same Tribes as Pashton and Karzai always calling Taliban as his brothers, but Taliban are #1 enemy of none Pashton people in Afghanistan and they are not human being and should be whip out from the face of the Earth.

– Dear Author, there is no contradiction …. US policies of enabling Pakistan’s disfunction is deliberate and premeditated. The usefulness of such policy lies in dealing with India, an emerging power.

Regardless of the American drum beating about “friendship with India as the most important event of this century” , the reality is, there is no love lost between the US and India.

The Americans are playing a dirty game, with their policies towards Pakistan, unethical and immoral ….. India is obliged to respond in kind ….
