The President Donald Trump, or whoever write his speech for Donald on Afghanistan-Pakistan policy, is Totally right Because Pakistan must step up to the plate and do more to destroy safe havens for radical on its soil. So,it is necessary that the radicalism is heated at its philosophy root, The people cannot refuses that politics and the foreign policy in particular can have effect on the overall thinking of entire society and the populations. When The problem of the foreign policies is discussed then it is most important to talk about Western countries and their agendas. Yet it is equally important—if not more so—to analyze the overt and covert policies of the places where extremism develops, the Middle East and Pakistan.
Pakistani army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor expecting the backlash from the US president Just one hour before the Trump’s speech and released a statement saying,” We have operated against all terrorists including the Haqqani network and now There are no terrorist hideouts in Pakistan.” The Haqqani network seeks to drive the Western forces and US from Afghanistan.
However he added in his statement that with the regard to US policy even if it comes with certain coercive you know the announcements what the Pakistan shall do whatever is best for the nation. On the other hand the US officials says that the Pakistan has deep ties with the Afghan, Taliban and the allied Haqqani network. On August 21, President Trump was not reserved his comments when he stated that Pakistan often gives safe haven to agents of violence and terror.
The United States measured the love hate relationship and it shares it with Pakistan. Again the country has the time to prove volatile, unpredictable and unstable. Any plans to rein it with tough love should first consider the long-tenuous history of US-Pakistan relations, not the least discovery of Osama-bin-Laden who was taking cover in the garrison town of Abbottabad and was described as “the heart of Pakistan military establishment” by one journalist.
Against the rival nations the Pakistan establishment has treated the extremist groups as assets and grounded in the belief that the foe of enemy is a friend. In 2011,Saeed Shah wrote in the Economist in the war in Afghanistan, Pakistan and found itself at the center of jihadism and felt that it had no choice to show its capabilities for effective address of both national and international security standing. A retired senior Pakistani official told Shah,” we have no money. All we have are the crazies .”
By no means the Pakistan’s list of crazies was limited to the Taliban and include several other groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Haqqani network. This shift in security strategy for Pakistan emerged from a deep seated insecurity and a desire to re-position itself as a major global player. As Indian money flowing into Afghanistan, Iran, Russia and the United States and all of them were making their claims in the region. At that time Pakistan’s two-pronged strategy was to outwardly advance traditional means to power with the world’s sixth-largest army and fastest-growing nuclear arsenal and while maintaining a thin facade of denial to sponsor the militant groups to harass its rivals. Yet, the policy is not without consequences.
The Pakistan has long-attempted to play the balancing act between itself and with international community in condemning the atrocities out by Islamist insurgents and the supporting strands of this violent campaign. But, the plan doesn’t always go right in attempting to manipulate such a volatile body of jihadis.
Pakistan needs to get out of denial as there are some jihadi groups that can be trusted allies of the state. However they might be useful for external purposes as internally they will always be dangerous, said Husain Haqqani, the director for South and Central Asia at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC and is the former Pakistani ambassador to the United States and the author of Pakistan between Mosque and Military.
The Countries that are geographically, historically and politically positioned to be at the front-line in the fight against the group Islamic State militant group and now the Taliban must seriously reconsider their security choices.
