-Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal
Trump has proved himself to be is a silly, fanatically Zionist and anti-Islamic leader, untrustworthy of (military) support of any Muslim nation for the US war on Islam.
Former President Obama tried his best through his Asia Pivot gimmick to disconnect and isolate Pakistan from Chinese link but failed, Trump is trying more aggressively than his predecessor to divide Sino-Pakistani bond. Trump also gathers all anti-Islamic forces to secretly plan the next world war – exclusively on Islam- further extending the war on Islam. .
The ongoing terror war launched by Bush Jr and prolonged by Obama and others is in fact a bloody war on Islam and energy rich Islamic world.
The envisaged war would also target the anti-USA nations like China and Russia. Trump is pushing out the Muslim nations and the insult being launched against Pakistan by Trump is a part of his efforts to antagonize Islamic world
The world community has taken as a crude joke the wild allegations against Pakistan, its own “major NATO ally” that always stood by the pentagon-NATO fascist operations in South Asia, killing Muslims mercilessly like the wild beasts do in order to weak animals in thick forests, though Pakistan is constitutionally sworn by protecting the Muslims.
USA is deadly angry that Pakistan continues to be an ally of China even after USA launched the famous Asia pivot to target both Russia and China and their military allies in Asia.
Participants of the seventeenth meeting recently of the National Security Committee (NSC) in Islamabad expressed “deep disappointment” at the allegations levelled against Pakistan by US dictatorial president Donald Trump, saying the accusations strike at the trust between the two countries and negate the sacrifices rendered by the Pakistani nation.
Chaired by Pakistani PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and attended by high-level civil-military leadership, the meeting observed that Pakistan has fought the war against terrorism primarily using its own resources and at a great cost to its economy. “more importantly the huge sacrifices made by Pakistan, including the loss of tens of thousands of lives … could not be trivialized so heartlessly by the American dictator pushing all of it behind a monetary value – and that too an imagined one,” a press release issued after the meeting in Islamabad said.
Trump claims that the USA has “foolishly” given Pakistan over $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years just like that. Is it possible that USA gives money to any body without first taking the services from the concerned?
The committee members observed that President Trump’s allegations were puzzling because they stand in contrast to the “positive direction”.
USA and Pakistani officials had been interaction in the wake of Trump’s South Asia policy announcement in August. The US president’s allegations were “completely incomprehensible as they contradicted facts manifestly, struck with great insensitivity at the trust between [the] two nations built over generations, and negated the decades of sacrifices made by the Pakistani nation”, the handout said.
Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen Zubair Mehmood Hayat, Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi, Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman, Adviser to PM on Finance, Revenue and Economic Affairs Miftah Ismail, National Security Adviser (NSA) Nasser Khan Janjua, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, and senior civil and military officials attended the meeting.
Pakistan not responsible for US foolish actions and failures
The NSC participants noted that it was due to Pakistan’s counter-terrorism efforts of the last several years that scores of terrorist organisations based in Afghanistan had been unable to expand — “a fact acknowledged by US authorities at the highest levels”. They observed that Afghanistan-based militants had repeatedly attacked Pakistanis across the border with “impunity” by exploiting presence of millions of Afghan refugees in Pakistan, a porous Pak-Afghan border and ungoverned spaces inside Afghanistan.
Pakistan continues to support the US-led campaign in Afghanistan and is facilitating the effort through vital lines of communications for smooth counter-terrorism operations by the coalition forces, the committee members noted. While observing that Pakistan cannot be held responsible for the “collective failure in Afghanistan”, the participants deduced that following are the “real challenges” in the Afghan conflict: Political infighting; Massive corruption; Phenomenal growth of drug production; Expansion of ungoverned spaces inside Afghanistan holding sanctuaries for multiple terrorist organisations, etc.
The NSC participants reached the consensus that Pakistan “cannot act in haste” and despite all the allegations will remain committed to playing a constructive role towards an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process.
Shortly before the meeting commenced, the military had finalized its suggestions for Pakistan’s response to Trump’s allegations in a Corps Commanders’ Conference held at General Headquarters. A meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security was also called on January 5 to discuss the US’s allegations.
Audit of $33bn aid figure can reveal who is lying & deceiving
USA has been unsuccessfully trying to force Pakistan come out of alliance with China and for this USA has used Indian links as a bully. In his first tweet of the New Year, Trump had accused Pakistan of basing its relationship with the USA on “nothing but lies and deceit”. They give “safe haven” to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” he had said.
Now Pakistan is being occupied by US state terrorists.
Americans are known for double speaks and cold lies. Following the NSC meeting, Foreign Minister Asif challenged President Trump’s claim that the USA has given Pakistan “more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years”, saying verification by an audit firm would prove the US president wrong. The foreign minister offered that Trump could hire a US-based audit firm “on our expense” to verify the $33 billion aid figure and “let the world know who is lying & deceiving”.
Like people who turn against one another saying:” look I paid for your lunch and tea but you are not killing my enemy.. I will not give you tea hereafter.. ”, Trump quoted figure of $33billion given to PAK over last 15yrs,he can hire a US based Audit firm on our expense to verify this figure & let the world know who is lying & deceiving..
The Pakistan Army spokesman, Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, asserted that the aid Pakistan received from the USA was “reimbursement for support we gave to the coalition in fights and blood for its fight against US sponsored terrorists like Al Qaeda.” “Had we not supported the USA and Afghanistan, they would never have been able to defeat Al Qaeda,” he had said.
Trump’s method of ill treating Pakistan would not work at all.
USA under foolish Trump behaves like a monster seeking more Pakistani, Islamic blood. The US president’s falsified financial accounts had come in the aftermath of an increasingly terse back-and-forth between Washington and Islamabad since Trump announced his administration’s latest national security strategy.
During the announcement, the US president had been quick to remind Pakistan of its ‘obligation’ to help America “because it receives massive payments” from Washington every year.
“We have made clear to Pakistan that while we desire continued partnership, we must see decisive action (killing remaining Muslims in Pakistan and Af-Pak) whom Pentagon calls the “ terrorist groups operating” on their territory. And we make massive payments every year to Pakistan. They have to help,” the US president had said.
A Pentagon report to the US Congress, released to the media on Dec 17, had said Washington would also take ‘unilateral steps’ in areas of divergence with Pakistan while expanding cooperation between the two countries where their interests converge. Subsequently, US Vice President Mike Pence had, in a surprise visit to Afghanistan’s Bagram airbase on Dec 22, warned that Trump has “put Pakistan on notice” in what was the harshest US warning to Islamabad since the beginning of the Afghan war over 16 years ago.
Official sources in Washington said that the Trump government is also considering withholding $255 million from a fund meant to provide military training and equipment to Pakistan, adding to already existing cuts on reimbursements.
Both Israel and USA are damn sure that a weak Pakistan, destabilized by NATO terror operations in and around, killing Muslims indiscriminatingly, could be easily bullied and cowed into their own scheme against Islam.
Pakistan is being destroyed by fascist foreign foes that occupy Pakistan and Afghanistan as well as capitalists who want the war to continue so that they could loot the nation’s resources at will.
USA needs Pakistan for successful business with Muslim nations, especially in West Asia.
