Re: The Drama goes on

The drama is coming to ahead.


Quote:
And now Iran
AS Iran becomes openly critical of Pakistan and calls upon it "to carry out an appropriate programme to dismantle terrorist groups in the border areas" our all three next-door neighbours have come to the same conclusion that we are promoting terrorist activity around our periphery and serving as agents of destabilisation. The blame for creating such an atmosphere of suspicion squarely rests with our misguided foreign policy that to all intents and purposes toes the US line. The seven Muslim Foreign Ministers' conference recently held at Islamabad to discuss the rising tension in the Middle East, but without the participation of Iran that is under increasing threat of military action from the US and Israel must have reinforced its doubts about our intentions.
One can understand India's perverse provocation to level allegation against Pakistan of promoting 'terrorist activity' in Held Kashmir. Illegally occupying the disputed state with oppressive means, it wants to give the world the impression that the armed struggle for freedom that the Kashmiris are waging is only sustained by trained recruits from Pakistan so that it could evade its settlement in accordance with the people's wishes. Kabul, never a friendly country, is unfortunately caught up in a mess: powerless to defend itself against the mounting resistance, it is helped by 'friends' who are unwilling to use their power to the required measure. Thus, it looks around helplessly and points a finger at Islamabad. A more proactive diplomacy and well thought out campaign highlighting the actual picture would have largely blunted both India and Afghanistan's attempts to defame Pakistan.
But Iran has no axe to grind to cast aspersions on us. In case what it says conforms to facts, it is scandalous how myopic our policymakers are to conceive Pakistan to be at peace with its neighbours shouting about its interference in their affairs. Redressal of Tehran's grievances should be Islamabad's top priority.
Pakistan has an extremely myopic foreign policy, one that is India centric. Radicalization of Pakistan has caused a general lack of gravitas in their foreign and domestic policy calculus. Their search for "strategic depth" in the Taliban, to counter Indian influence in Afghanistan, caused them to be isolated form Iran. Their aid of the US against Egypt in the Suez crisis, isolated them from the Arabs. Pakistan needs a dramatic shift in the foreign policy. Particularly with the Democratic controlled congress in the US, simply handing over Taliban and Al Qaeda when pushed is not going to be enough.
What this shows is that, not only are their terrorists in Pakistan but that the government of Pakistan is aware of them and knows where they are. This can't last too much longer. Let's see what happens when their aid gets revoked.

Re: The Drama goes on

After all these years, the drama has actually worked.

the rescue news
link
New details have emerged of the dramatic rescue of a Canadian-American family held hostage by a Taliban-linked group for more than five years in Pakistan.

The couple – US citizen Caitlan Campbell and Canadian Joshua Boyle – were captured five years ago by the Haqqani network while hiking in the mountains of Afghanistan. Ms Campbell was pregnant at the time, with the couple having three children while they were held hostage.

A senior Pakistani security source said that the family had been saved after a car chase in a northwestern tribal region that borders Afghanistan, with Pakistani army troops shooting the tyres of the vehicle carrying the family leading them to be saved.

The rescue – which also involved US drones hovering in the area – is a rare positive moment for US-Pakistan relations in recent months, with tensions having been raised after President Donald Trump called on the country to do more to stop terrorist groups on its borders. Reports indicated that Mr Boyle had refused to board an American C-130 for a flight to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, but the family was said to be on its way back to Canada, flying via London.


The statement of resured victim -
link from Barkha Dutt's News site
“The stupidity and the evil of the Haqqani network in the kidnapping of a pilgrim . . . was eclipsed only by the stupidity and evil of authorizing the murder of my infant daughter,”

My interpretation -
A - The Family was stupid to go backpacking to Afghanistan with a Pregnant woman.
B - The ISI and co had just kept them in reserve. When trump turns the heat on, they do this rescue drama.

Result -
The drama works. Looks like ISI has learnt from Bollywood which it controls.
