"ISI" The Great!

In recent times, the intelligence agency of Pakistan also known as the ISI (Inter Services Of Intelligence) has been under a lot of critisizement by the international media mainly because of its role in the “war on terror” which by many American national conventionalists is being regarded as duplicitous.

The depiction of ISI being portrayed by the international news agencies has surely raised certain question marks over its credibility and effectiveness. The ISI’s most imperative duty in this conflict is to maintain Pakistan’s influence across the border in Afghanistan so that our so called very peaceful neighbors I mean India does not get a strong hold over Afghan region and for that purpose our intelligence agency has to support certain illegal militias in order to keep its influence alive across the border.If you regard this act erroneous then I might let you know that this is what the intelligence agencies all over the world do. ISI is trying to keep Pakistan’s influence alive in the geo-strategic politics with in this region because as long as Pakistan keeps its authority with in this constituency it will continue to exist.

If the very popular “Newyork Times” calls out at ISI blaming it for playing a double game in the region then why doesn’t it blame RA&W(Indian Intelligence Agency) for continuously trying to intervene in Afghan politics and working out deals with the Afghan Intelligence. Why doesn’t it question the ever popular CIA for hauling out proxy wars in various fractions of the world in the past including the “Cold war”? The answer might readily come up that every nation has its own national interests and the agencies have to protect them.

Why ISI then? Are we not cooperating with the American agencies, I believe it’s rather the vice versa. Pakistan’s intelligence agency has surely given more than it is expected from their side and this is what qualms the world. It was due to state’s erroneous verdicts in the late 2004 which led to their strategic defeat in Afghanistan while the west censures ISI for it.

As compatriots we all must believe in our security forces rather than accusing them and their steadfastness without any proper justifications.

Pakistan Zindabad!

Pak-US relations have touched rock bottom like never before in the history. The situation is a complete mess at the moment. It is now being asserted by many analysts as well as by the dialogue of top notch US officials that Pakistan will no more be a part of the “Afghan Reconciliation Process” in upcoming future and its indications are quite visible by now.

The question here is why? Why United States is ramming Pakistan out? The fault is mainly ours. After the departure of Musharraf’s government, the present government has not been able to live up to the expectations of neither its public nor states. Secondly the way our military institutions have been exposed by the international media has surely made many people from our military establishment dejected and ISPR’s recent statement over Newyork time’s propaganda against Pakistan’s security agencies and a cut in our military aid has surely created a huge gap between the bilateral relations of both the countries. Thirdly and most importantly the usage diplomatic doors has minimized to a great extent after Qureshi’s departure which I believe is a major concern as our neighborhood is quite popular for using its diplomacy in the best possible way internationally.

What we are seeking now is an alternative. China will be asked to jump in to keep US aware that we are not completely a US-dependent state unlike Egypt and others. President Zardari will work through his contacts to get Russia into play but that’s not going to happen as Russians have to worry about US operations in Central Asian states now and Iran has middle east to look into.

I sincerely hope that Pasha’s visit to US cools things down so that we can focus more on what imposes a greater threat to our sovereignty i.e Terrorism and religious fundamentalism.

The only point which scares me off now is the fact that now even Karzai is showing eyes/balls! to Pakistan and if we don’t take probable actions in bringing things back to normal then who knows may be India replaces us in the “Afghan reconciliation process”!

Pakistan Zindabad!
