Pakistan and US: Drying out after the Wiki flood

A WikiLeak earlier this week, advertised as a tidal wave of secret communication, later elicited little more than a collective yawn for many observers. What was so Earth shattering about the Taliban’s access to the latest in weaponry? Don’t most Americans know that we are at a stalemate at best, and at worst losing ground to the rebellious Pashtuns in southeastern Afghanistan? Is the collusion between Pakistan’s military and her Inter Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI), the shadowy spy agency, with the Taliban really news?

The Government of India has long complained–ineffectively–that the Pakistani military and ISI function in tandem with Islamist militants to foment terror in India’s northern state of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan for nearly that entire time, with incredible success, deflected global opprobrium maintaining that they only provided moral and diplomatic support to brave “freedom fighters.” Where the deaths of nearly 60,000 people and the religious cleansing of 350,000 Hindus from their homes in Kashmir by Islamist militants since as recently as 1990, failed to turn attention to this war-by-proxy Pakistani strategy, the American invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11 finally delivered that sordid collaboration to a wider audience.

The leaked documents spell out the strategic coordination of the likes of Hamid Gul, the former ISI chief, with the Taliban to such an extent, that he is now known as the “Father of the Taliban.” And while we continue to hope that leaving Pakistan awash in dollars– $7.5 billion more for the next decade or so–will buy our way out of this muddle–in a pathetic twist, we may become even more beholden to Pakistan precisely because its military and parts of the political class, in many ways, is in bed with the Taliban. We now hope that we can “use” this perverse endogamy to press Pakistan to control the Talibani Frankenstein that it created and now threatens to consume the country itself. Yes, Pakistanis are falling victim now to the same terrorist menace it nurtured and now cannot control.

The real question now is not whether the Taliban and the Pakistani establishment are linked. That is a given. The question is whether American rhetoric will stray from tired attestations to “partnership” and “common cause” that our secretary of state mouthed there last week, and speak plainly as British Prime Minister David Cameron did yesterday in Bangalore despite the diplomatic feathers he ruffled.

“We cannot tolerate in any sense the idea that this country (Pakistan) is allowed to look both ways and is able, in any way, to promote the export of terror, whether to India or whether to Afghanistan or anywhere else in the world,” Cameron said. With nearly every would-be terrorist, from the American shoe-bomber to the Nigerian underwear bomber and now the Times Square bomber coming as exports from Pakistan, Cameron’s words have merit.

There is reason to be pessimistic, however. Even resolutions introduced in the House of Representatives, such as House Resolution 764, calling on Pakistan to restore religious freedom in the country where Hindus, Christians, Ahmadiyyas and Bahai’s are subjugated, or House Resolution 1463, restricting military assistance to Pakistan, seem to be going nowhere and are now held up in subcommittees. A lesson unlearned in fifty years is that feeding Pakistan cash will not alter a national psychosis of war and hatred for the U.S. The United States provides almost no humanitarian aid to India, yet according to the Pew Global Attitudes Project 2010, Indians have one of the most favorable views of America in the world, while Pakistanis lead the world in their hatred for our country.

Money can’t buy love, certainly, but it surely can feed and arm those who hate.

    Given the history, Pakistan should not trust US Afghan aims. This so called “friend” of Pakistan has brought death and destruction in the country since last 30 years with first making it a proxy against USSR and now against “war or terror”. The ever back stabbing ungrateful American establishment has brought Pakistan’s sworn Eastern enemy, i.e. India, to its west as well with installing thousands of Indian workers, proxies and spies network (wikileaks has no mention of that) in Afghanistan.

  • SyedSahab

    Also, despite the role of US in this part of the world, no-one should be allowed or tolerated in committing acts of terror against innocent. The is not acceptable in any condition, in retaliation , excuse or for any nation’s so called interest as taking innocent lives never solve any problem is a criminal and unholy act. There can be no exceptions with this rule.

  • IqbalKhan

    Mr. Shukla,The “We” in your article should mean “We Indians” because you’re speaking like true Indian bent upon spreading hatred toward Pakistan. And, then you guys wonder why Pakistanis don’t trust your “designs”.The cold war between Pakistan and India is in full swing (in Afghanistan). And, the “informants” in Wikileaks were from Northern Alliance, a puppet of India. So, no wonder, we see lies about ISI and same mantra being repeated that India has been spreading all along.

  • passionateguy00

    We Americans are so gullible to Pakistani lies and misinformations that we easily buy into the story that Pakistan is fighting the Taliban. Pakistan is only fighting the Pakistani Taliban called the TTP. The pakistani Taliban threatens their internal security, therefore Pakistani Army is engaged in fighting them. But the Pakistani Army and Government has decided not to touch the Afgan Taliban.Infact they are funding them using our Tax Dollars to Kill American and NATO forces.Pakistani Army is Playing a Double game.On one hand they tell us they are with us and in reality they are training the Taliban and providing them with Arms and Intelligence to kill more Americans.We are being hoodwinked and bamboozled by the Pakistanis ! It is most unfortunate that our Politicians and Intelligence angencies are unable to see this obvious game.I don’t want my tax dollars to go to a country that uses them to kill my fellow Americans.I demand that all funding for the Pakistan Government to be Stopped immediately.

    This is one game where there are no winners, only losers. There is something inherently wrong with the DNA of Pakistan. If you study Pakistan’s history and past actions, you will conclude that something is not right there.As soon as they got Independence from the British, they attacked India over Kashmir which was the first war in the series of many. They massacred their own citizens in East Pakistan (Now Bangladesh) which lead to a bloody breakup of Pakistan. When Indian Prime Minister was visiting Pakistan over a peace mission, the Pakistanis were busy plotting an attack on India which later came to be known as the Kargil War where thousands of innocents died unnecessarily. They just do not provide “Diplomatic & Moral Support” to the terrorists, but train them, arm them and motivate them. If there was a mental asylum for nations, Pakistan definitely would quality to be admitted there.

    SHUKLA is a cancer of Bigot Hindu Propaganda Machine which spreads hatred only….Pakistan always has been used by the US and West for its motives,earlier against USSR and now against Taliban…. Pakistani nation has always been facing the main brunt for the benifit of others…I return, wot it gets..Killings and Unstability..This time also pakistani Army and Pak. people are giving sacrifices besides other losses….How Bizarre! despite Pakistan putting whole country at the stake some people are raising Questions…..the Need of the hour is that Whole World should be Thankful to Pakistan for its sacrifices and should strengthen it…

    Dear readers, To really know what Paksitan is just Google 1971 civil war in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). Punjabi Pakistani army committed genocide of its own citizens when they demanded power to be handed over to the elected leader who win majority in 1970 election fair and square. The figures range from 1.5 MILLION to 3 MILLION KILLED and 100,000 to 300,000 raped by the Punjabi Pakistani army to teach lesson to Bengalis who constituted 55% of the entire population in 1970. Next you can Google Balochistan which is 45% of the entire Pakistan to know the bombig, killing and kidnapping of poor Balochis since March 1948 by army and airforce. Do I have to remind global nuclear prolifiration of 20 years by Pakistan which was caught in 2003 after 9-11?I can go on and on…Just Google it and find the June report published by LONDON SCHOOL OF ECOMONICS about ISI and Talibans.Peace

    From the Pew Survey Quoted:”…in nine of the fifteen countries where comparable data is available, America’s favorability still lags behind that found in 1999/2000 at the end of President Bill Clinton’s time in office. The U.S. is only more popular in five countries than in the Clinton era – France, Spain, Russia, South Korea and Nigeria.”In other words, the United States is very popular countries that have problems with Muslims.

  • sudhatri1943

    Bravo Dr. Shukla. Well-written and every word is in my opinion, true. Those that rant against your column have not traveled widely in India to see the extent of religious tolerance and pluralism that prevails there in contrast to the exclusivity of Islam which in most Islamic countries including Pakistan treats with disdain non-Islamic faiths and often vandalizes or destroys non-Islamic places of worship. In Saudi Arabia, any one who is not a Muslim cannot even a carry one’s religious icon or book into that country. It is a pity that many more Muslims do not speak out against such religious intolerance.

Dont kill american soldiers using money given by their own government to protect these very soldiers.. how ironic, sad.. sic.. pakistanis you have twisted minds..4. please don’t call yourselves as Indian muslims when you’re in Western countries, like USA, UK, france etc… you lost that right in 1947, and by the way, you were so happy about it all along .. till now i.e.

    @ moinansariI can describe Pakistan in just one word, “SIC”.Here is to all hawks in Pakistan:Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a TERRORIST nation-state army. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three- “Wolney Stanpert”.

    Pakistan has become the biggest mess for the world, if u go through the history of this country, u sense a hate filled islamo facist idealogy that is against other religions, a country where a muslim community(ahmedi) have to sign declerations that they are “not muslims” coz they dont comply with Pak’s standards. Pakistan has become a champion of Using wahabi brand of islam and then use it to spread terror in India, Afghanistan, Iran, Central Asia and now the whole world.Its a country that is still licking its wounds after losing 4 wars to India and is hence always against charged up to spread the islamist terror in the country. It has tried to do all it can to ensure that Afghanistan remains its ‘sphere of influence’ Pakistan is not fighting terrorism for the world it is only fighting jihaadis that are anti pak(supposedly)….pakistan has always cashed in from the trouble in afghanistan they did it during the soviet war and they are doing it even today

  • usarmyvet2000

    What a shame! Precious lives of our soldiers and our monies (mostly borrowed from China) are being wasted to prop up a phony government in Pakistan whose people hate us and are hiding Osama and Zawhiri. The corrupt politicians there are duping our leaders. It is time we got out of Pakistan if that country wont help us capture Bin Laden and his coterie. Pakistan wants to dominate Afghanistan thro Al Quaida and Taliban. It always uses India as a bogey man to carry on with their shameless double-dealing. Dr.Shukla has done great service by highlighting this treacherous game that is being played by Pakistan. It is time that our President issued a warning to Pakistan like what the British PM Cameron recently did. Pakistan’s double-dealing must stop.

  • Filibuster

    Well written, Dr. Shukla. Pakistan is a disaster zone and it’s about time the US realizes that the billions of dollars of aid aren’t going for their intended purposes. Wish there were more of the likes of you who spoke out since our government seems hell bent on continuing its broken policy toward Pakistan.

    MoinAnsari, et al you folks need to come to gripes with it man. On the 63rd birthday of your nation you are a thoroughly failed state, for most of those 63 years. It started almost on day one guys. The very premise of the genesis of Pakistan, starting with the name. What is the purity in you? You are given that your for-parents were too scared s@$#*&ss or just power hungry that they converted to that decrypt islam. Where is the purity in your pedigree, just opportunism. Then the instead of staying in India, your bigoted selfish leaders wanted to separate from India so they could exploit your own kind. How else can you explain the contradiction in their demand for Pakistan. The muslims and hindus were quite homogeneously distributed through out India. This meant there would be significant numbers of muslims left behind in the new India. Their claim was the muslims in undivided India would be oppressed. Then what about the fate of even small population of muslims in the secular India. Your leaders did not care. Actually they never cared about muslims in general. They cared enough about themselves. Your founding goombas only cared that they would be the big fish in the small pond. So you guys, your parents and grand parents were exploited by your leaders from day one. I suppose you deserve it for your credulity and bigotry. Now the dram unfolds. Then your leaders fed the that sweet pablum, coming from the days of MO. One true islamic warrior is equal to was it ten or 100 Kafirs. Fed on this utter bigotry you again let your leaders to exploit you. Btw whatever happened to the minorities amongst you? Your leaders were only to eager to beat their chests about possible hindu oppression, but the hypocrites that they were did not care to provide any safeguards for the minorities. Of course there is no such thing as tolerance in a muslim country, is there? Fed with the false sense of bravado, your troops invaded Kashmir, whe the maharajah was acceding the kingdom to India. Although you occupied over half of Kashmir, illegally I may add, you were stopped. LIke chicken immediately you asked for truce, keeping Indians from pushing you out of there. Then comes a series of military coups after another, culminating in butchering the people of your majority state to satiate the blood lust of your military leadership. This time your khakis suffered the most ignominy of half your country lost and another 125,000 soldiers had to march the entire an infidel country in chains. The recent history of feeding the bigots amongst you with the largess of the Saudis. This degenerated into devouring yourself, with no infrastructure no decent educational institutes. It has inevitably become bigoted, terrorist state, living off of the scraps doled out by Saudis, for the very existence.

  • docboss83

    Moin Ansari appears to have had a thesaurus in his presence to make himself appear intelligent in his first post, then lost his thesaurus in later posts when he his writing got much worse. Quite hilarious. Anyway, I’ll address just one point without going into ridiculously biased sources like “Rupee News.” Funny that a person coming from a country like Pakistan with blasphemy laws, where Islam literally cannot be criticized, would try to criticize someone else for supporting “censorship.”. Your country banned Google and Facebook and loads of other sites over some cartoons on the internet, so spare us the ridiculous diatribes about HAF supporting censorship. But my point is about Narendra Modi. The 2008 Nanavati commission found Modi innocent in instigating the Gujarat riots. Of course, I am sure Mr. Ansari has never heard of it. Pakistan has supported the killings of millions of Hindus…in fact their country has almost been totally purged of Hindus. Benazir Bhutto actively supported the cleansing of Kashmiri Hindus through the Islamic militancy and Pakistan massacred at least 100,000 Bengali Hindus in 1971. When will Pakistan ever issue an apology over that? Blind nationalists like Ansari can never see the facts. India is a far better place for Muslims than Pakistan is for any non-Muslim.

  • moinansari

    What does this rhetoric have to do with faith? It is pure unadulterated Indian agitprop meant to malign Pakistan.Dr. Aseem Shukla’s and her country has been working against US interests for fifty years of the past sixty. Delhi was the closest ally of the USSR, Cuba, and every Anti-American country. India unabashedly supported the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and opposed US efforts to reverse the occupation of Afghanistan by Russia.Ms. Shukla’s vituperative rant and vociferate amphigory doesn’t hide the vacuity of her ideas. The article has serious errors in it and is biased. It is disgusting that this esteemed site published this nonsense. India is terror central–which supported the Mukti Bahni terrorists, the Chinese Tibetan militants, the Tamil Tiger-LTTE terrorists in Lanka, the Rakhi Bahni and Chittagong Hill Track terrorists in Bangladesh and so on and so forth.The author’s unmitigated bigoted drivel is biased, it has serious errors in it and is typical of the anti-Pakistan tripe so pervasive in some racist quarters these days.General Gul Hamid retired 20 years ago and is an old man. Rehashing old rhetoric doesn’t make it truth.The rhetorical narrishkeit, rigamarole niaiserie cannot stop the stink of bigotry. Truth will prevail. Indian interests in Afghanistan are based on irredentist religious revanchist expansionism which sees Afghanistan as part of “Greater India” (Akhand Bharat).Americans are not fools. They see through Indian propaganda when they see it. Washington knows that India is working against US interests in Afghanistan.Propaganda works only for a little bit. The turgidity, stultiloquence cannot put lipstick on a pig. Ms. Shukla’s fustian, gabble, and hocus-pocus demagogary cannot hide the facts. The author’s babble bombastry, and blustering bluff cannot put icing on a turd. Her Anti-Pakistan babblement is just balderdash. Her Islamphobic barbarized tirade, philippic prate is not good enough to hide the truth. She has tried his palaver to conjure up a story but his perorate paints a fuzzy picture—confusing everyone.

    The TTP is a Bharati (aka Indian) terror group that attempts to put pressure on Pakistan. It is part of the Bharati strategy that started in 1948–send terror groups to states and then claim them as their own–it was used in Hyderabad to take over a sovereign state, it was used to take over Sikkim, and attempted in Bhutan and Tibet. The Mukti Bhani was a similar terror group as was the LTTE sent to destabilize Lanka. Many of the terror groups that Bharat sent were defeated, and the TTP will not be able to survive the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.The US “aid” is neither magnanimous, nor huge. Peanuts cannot replace $20 billion per year losses incurred by Pakistan due to the US war in Afghanistan. The US abuses Pakistani roads and bases and pays nothing for the usage. Actually Kerry-Lugar’s attempt to help US corporations. Half of the “aid” is spent on US consultants. 25% is spent on logistics and admin. less than 25% is handed out to the US Ambassador’s favorite NGO to be deposited back in Swiss accounts. Pakistan needs market access, a Free Trade Agreement and ROZsEditor Rupee News

    Let us see what Dr. Shukla represents.She represent the worst in America, and the worst of American values. In fact she is a cancer in our society.The Hindu American Foundation funds people like Narendar Modi–the Hitler lover Anti-Semite, Islamphobic fascist who was responsible for the massacre of 2000 innocent children and women in Gujarat, those who did not conform to the so called Non-violent Hindu Dharma. Modi has been banned to enter the US and HAF doesn’t like that.The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) opposed the House Resolution 160 introduced by Representative Joseph Pitts (R-PA) and Representative John Conyers (D-MI) on March 16, 2005. The purpose of the resolution was “to condemn all violations of religious freedom in India.” Obviously the HAF would not condemn this–in fact HAF is part of the problem.Dr. Wendy Doniger is the Mircea Eliade Distinguished Service Professor of the History of Religions at the University of Chicago Divinity School. She is the author of several books on Hindu Scriptures. Her focus has been on translating, interpreting and comparing elements of Hindu Dharma through modern contexts of gender, sexuality and identity.The Hindu American foundation has stifled free speech by opposing the publication of Dr. Doniger’s book and hounding her.Ms Shuilka is using the religious pulpit to spread her politcal agenda concocted up in Delhi. Instead of building interfaith harmony–which is the purpose of this space, Ms. Shukla has used it to spread her parochial and bigoted agenda against Pakistan.Ms. Shukla, leave your political baggage and bigoted racism in Delhi. This is America–and we all live in harmony in this country. If you want to spew garbage in these columns you should head back to Gujarat to work for Modi and company.

    “Aseem Shukla” represents a Hindu and Muslim name. Perhaps that is what makes her target of most of the Mullahas. What she says is plain speak which Pakistan is not used to. The most mercinary, characterless and dollar hungery state in the world who has been on a “free ride” since its inception kind courtesy India being next door.It has been an abject failure of indian diplomacy that such a rogoue state was allowed to expolite every thing in the name of hurting India. Chinese, US, European powers, islamic word etc paid them well just to hurt India. India never intended or develop a power to hurt any one of those players. Still, due to their geoploitical copmulsions, evry one wanted to hurt that hungry humanity called India. Strange ! indeed very starnge/So all hired a goon called Pakistan. Today that extorsionist state has become a pain for all. Having kept such a large and vast country as India at bay, they want to dig graves for UK, USA, Saudies, Iran nad may be China (though not explicit) on the premise they they defeated USSR and they are able to bully a soft India.It si an abject failure of powers that be that a failed state is being allowed to survive and blackmail Internation Order and peace.

Why do the small minded Hindus of this blog have this obsession with Pakistan?Oh and the Shameless liar also says that the expulsion of Hindus and death of 100,000 innocent Kashmiris is entirely to be blamed on Pakistan! Kashmir has the most number of soldiers per sq. feet than anywhere else in the world. 600,000 soldiers and para military in just one state! They rape Kashmiri women, kill their youths, torcher their men and when they protest they open indiscriminate fire on the protestors. If Pakistan is responsible for all the trouble in Kashmir why do the Kashmiris chant Pakistan Zindabad (long live Pakistan) in all their protests? Why did India renege from its promise of holding plebicite in Kashmir? Ofcourse Indians know which side the Kashmiris would want to go in the case of a free referendum so they sent half a million soldiers to the state to suppress a popular uprising. Cameron is a bumbling new comer who has even embarrassed his own foreign office. The chest thumping of Indians after the amateurish comments of Cameron was expected, but it counts for nothing. Cameron’s style of diplomacy is playing to the gallery. He will say pleasing things to the Turks when he visits Turkey, does the same in US and now in India.

    yasseryousufi, long time no spewing man, whatever happened to you? I thought you were introspecting, but no such luck, I guess. BTW the circles you move in must have a few Pakistani Shiites, and a few Indian Shiites too. Did you ever ask them how they feel about their respective countries, or for that matter Ahemmedis. So please spare us all the invective. It is Pakistan that could not come up with its own constitution for what 26 years after the independence. And had what only 10 years of thoroughly corrupt civilian governments with 50+ years of Khakis, who lost more than half the country. Of course there is no need for even mentioning anything about minorities, apostates, heretics, and atheists. Before you guys, go berserk, the facts are Pakistan is a mercenary country. Your army is on permanent loan to your Saudi royal family of in-bred half breeds for their protection. I don’t know why they trust your army, which lost half the country. The other half of your army goes and stirs mischief, when they are not trying to throw the politicians out of jobs and sending them to Saudi.
