Axis of Logic

Talha Mujaddidi analyzes the “Quagmire of Imperial Slavery” for Axis of Logic from inside Pakistan:

In January, 2005, Wajid Shamsul Hasan, former Pakistan High Commissioner to the U.K. wrote the following alert and warning:

“When it was over, I realised that everything had happened ‘according to the plan’. This brings out of me the apprehension: are our military rulers working on an a similar agenda or something that has been laid out for them in the various assessment reports over the years by the National Intelligence Council (NIC) in joint collaboration with CIA. It was poor Miraj Khalid who as interim prime minister in early 1997 had dared to confide to the Pakistanis that CIA had forecast Pakistan’s denouement by the year 2015. … the NIC report cast a dark shadow on Pakistan’s future five years ago.

“It said that by the year 2015 Pakistan would be a failed state, ripe with civil war, bloodshed, inter-provincial rivalries and a struggle for control of its nuclear weapons and its complete Talibanization. It had predicted, ‘Pakistan will not recover easily from decades of political and economic mismanagement, divisive policies, lawlessness, corruption and ethnic friction’. Nascent democratic reforms will produce little change in the face of opposition from an entrenched political elite and radical Islamic parties. Further domestic decline would benefit Islamic political activists, who may significantly increase their role in national politics and alter the makeup and cohesion of the military, once Pakistan’s most capable institution. In a climate of continuing domestic turmoil, the central government’s control probably will be reduced to the Punjabi heartland and the economic hub of Karachi.”

Al Basrah reported in August, 2008, that Senator Nisar A. Memon of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q warned Pakistan’s upper house that “the Americans harboured the designs of breaking up Pakistan.” He cited an earlier CIA report that predicted a “Yugoslavia-like fate for Pakistan in a decade with civil war, bloodshed and inter-provincial rivalries as seen in Balochsitan”. He also quoted a Global Research report which alleged that, British intelligence agencies were providing covert support to Balochistan’s terrorist separatists and that “chaos and anarchy would be created through economic disruption, as result of which the International Monetary Fund would take Pakistan in its grip.”

While military operations continue in tribal areas of Pakistan, the Pakistani establishment is still stuck in the maze that was created by US Imperialist juggernauts and implemented to near perfection by former President and Army Chief of Pakistan Pervaiz Musharraf. Musharraf has done grave harm to the national security of Pakistan. The tremors of his jolts are still reverberating in Pakistani political and public spheres. The U-turns that Musharraf took under US pressure inflicted grave damages to Pakistan’s National and regional interests. Musharraf destroyed Pakistan’s Kashmir policy, Afghanistan policy, he bowed down in front of India, worst of all he gave a blank check to Washington to expand their CIA and FBI setup in Pakistan.

Sometimes it becomes difficult to isolate legend from truth in an A photo not for public useA photo not for public useaccount. Kashmiri girls are meeting similar fate regularly in their midst and yet they are failed to see who was using them and what kind of legend was being attached to their lives while sending them to journey of death by those very people who once were protectors. This paper is not an attempt to malign any single party involved in Kashmir dispute as culprit but to showcase the victimization of local girls for own gains by the parties involved.
Beautiful Jammau and Kashmir is faced with bleeding life and smiling death.
For Kashmiris it is a game of death where the Big Boss is the man who holds the gun! Kashmiris have been bullied around by men holding gun though it is a different matter of fact that it is with a militant or a more disciplined man wearing a uniform.
And in this game of death women again are the biggest silent victims. As usual in any conflict, whatever nature it may be, two things are definite casualties; one is truth and the other women. In Kashmir both have happened and that too rather brazenly.
