Pakistan and Decisive Storm in Yemen

Looks like Islamabad tries to dodge taking an active part in the military operation against Yemen. Pakistani Prime Minister Navaz Sharif owes Saudi Arabia. It saved his life and let his clan prosper. Thanks to kingdom’s interference he was exiled from the country instead of facing the death sentence handed down by the country’s Supreme Court in 2001. Sharif was sheltered by Saudi Arabia after the coup that overthrew him in 1999. The benevolent attitude of kingdom’s ruling circles contributed to success of his family business. Now Riyadh is irritated by the fact that personal close relationship with the Prime Minister does not guarantee Pakistan’s participation in the operation against Yemen...

Yemen and The Militarization of Strategic Waterways

  The Yemeni archipelago of Socotra in the Indian Ocean is located some 80 kilometres off the Horn of Africa and 380 kilometres South of the Yemeni coastline. The islands of Socotra are a wildlife reserve recognized by (UNESCO), as a World Natural Heritage Site.

A Clean Break is Needed (III)

...Without doubt, the Peshawar school attack is a defining moment. Pakistan cannot afford to carry on as before. Perhaps, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could be given the benefit of doubt when he insists that Pakistan will no more differentiate between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Taliban. In immediate terms, Sharif’s handling of the Indian demand for continued detention of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, operations commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba who was a key operative in masterminding the Mumbai terrorist strike in November 2008, becomes a test case...

A Clean Break is Needed (II)

At first sight, the Afghan-Pakistani differences and disputes pose the single biggest negative feature of the regional security scenario in South Asia. However, that will be to underestimate the potency of the dark clouds gathering on the horizon of India-Pakistan relationship.  While the Afghan-Pakistan problem is easily definable, that is not the case with the unfinished business of the Partition involving India and Pakistan in 1947 where politics mixes with religion, national identity and a huge backlog of blood-soaked history...

A Clean Break is Needed (I)

The ghastly attack on an army school in Peshawar last Tuesday appears to be a topping point, finally, in Pakistan’s existential struggle with terrorism. Will the Pakistani leadership rise to the challenge? An equally daunting challenge awaits the policymakers in New Delhi. How does the Indian leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi respond to the watershed event of last week in Peshawar?..

India, Pakistan Get Rare Chance to Ignore US

The meeting of the Director-General of Military Operations [DGMO] of India and Pakistan, which is due to take place on Tuesday at the GHQ in Rawalpindi, becomes a rare event in the chronicle of the fractured relationship between the two countries. Possibly, such an exchange between the two militaries is taking place for the first time since the then Indian DGMO Lt. Gen. Satish Nambiar visited Pakistan in 1991. Gen. Nambiar is a gifted soldier-diplomat and the visit went exceedingly well. His Pakistani hosts even took him and his delegation, in an exceptional gesture, to the Khyber Pass to peep into the tangled world of Afghanistan…

Who Will Benefit from the Disintegration of Pakistan?

On the eve of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the goals of U.S. politicians with regard to Pakistan are as follows: 1) the fragmentation of Pakistan with a view to weakening the strategic position of China in Southern Asia; 2) full control of the territory of the "narcotaliban", where about half of the world's hard drugs are produced; 3) neutralization of Pakistan's nuclear program, which is being implemented with the assistance of Chinese specialists (or on the contrary, if this is not successful, the removal of the psychological barrier to using atomic weapons)...

Whither US-Pak Relations After Kerry’s Visit

After a number of false starts US Secretary of State, John Kerry finally did arrive in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad on the 31 st July... One subject that figured prominently during the Kerry visitwas the drone attacks on Pakistan soil. Kerry defended these attacks...Pakistan, however...wanted the drone attacks to be stopped and not just curtailed. This will remain a point of contention between the two sides...Kerry had made an effort to put US-Pak relations on the path of normalisation.Whether this reasoning would be accepted remains open to question in a Pakistan where anti-American sentiment has been growing over the years…

US Drones and Destabilized Pakistan

John Kerry arrived in Pakistan the day after Mamnoon Hussain was elected the new President of the country. Just a few hours before that, the jail building in Dera Ismail Khan  (located in the tribes area, in the North-West of Pakistan) was captured by Pakistani Taliban. The State Secretary came to meet Prime Minister Navaz Sharif, acting President Asif Zardari (Mamnoon Hussein was to take office on August 9) and top military leaders. There was a wide range of issues on the agenda, including the thorniest one which has deteriorated the relationship with Washington – the incessant operations of drones in Pakistan (that is exactly what makes Pakistan the leader among nations with strong anti-US sentiments)…

Pakistan Post Election

The general elections that took place in May 2013 in Pakistan’s Lower House of Parliament – the National Assembly – and in the provincial assemblies of Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly the North-West Frontier Province) has introduced certain changes into the life of this large Asian nation with a population of nearly 200 million, a nation with nuclear weapons that occupies a crucially important geopolitical position in South Eurasia...

West and Soros Rely on «Extreme Balkanization» to Prevent Turkish Stream Pipeline

The Obama administration interventionists, content in the knowledge that they have, at least, another year-and-a-half remaining in power, have decided to resort to extreme ethnic-based Balkanization to throw up a road block to the Russian "Turkish Stream" pipeline that is to bring natural gas from Russia through Turkey and into Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, and Hungary.  The Obama administration has set about to foment another "color revolution," this time in Macedonia...
