AfPak hat-trick is doable for Obama but unlikely

It makes good copy for the Indian press that the United States National Security Advisor Susan Rice made a rare trip overseas to Pakistan in the weekend with the intent to read the riot act to the country’s army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif regarding the unfinished business of reining in the Haqqani Network.

India, Pakistan Choose to Remain Disengaged

It is a familiar sight when India-Pakistan interactions raise hopes but only to end up as damp squib. In fact, that is a well-established pattern, and the bleached landscape is littered with carcasses of India-Pakistan summit meetings...

Punishment Of Innocents by Sanctions

In June 2015 some 1,200 people died from the effects of an extreme heatwave in Pakistan. Temperatures reached 44 degrees Centigrade (111o Fahrenheit) and the scenes of suffering were heart-rending. As CNN reported : «At the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Sindh’s capital, Karachi, heat stroke victims are wheeled in daily, swelling the numbers well beyond capacity. The overwhelmed doctors and nurses do what they can... Family members tend to many of the patients, wiping their brows with sponges and keeping them cool with wet, grimy towels... At the Edhi morgue, the largest still operating in Karachi, the picture is even more dismal... Daily power outages mean the cold storage unit that houses bodies is hot and sticky. The dead, it seems, are denied the dignity they deserve»...

The Bin Laden Murder Mystery

Seymour Hersh, a great journalist with superb sources and the courage to challenge conventional wisdom, has presented a counter-narrative of the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, but Hersh’s story – compelling in many respects, even to the New York Times – has some elements that stretch credulity, says John Gardner.

The Key War on Terror Propaganda Tool: Only Western Victims Are Acknowledged

In all the years I’ve been writing about Obama’s drone killings, yesterday featured by far the most widespread critical discussion in U.S. establishment journalism circles. This long-suppressed but crucial fact about drones was actually trumpeted as the lead headline on the front page of The New York Times yesterday.

When Will Obama Apologize for All the Other Innocent Victims of Drone Strikes?

In the fall of 2013, Rafiq ur Rehman, a school teacher from the remote tribal region of North Waziristan, in Pakistan, stood with his 12-year-old son, Zubair, and 9-year-old daughter, Nabila, in Washington, D.C., preparing to challenge one of the U.S. government’s most secretive means of killing.

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...

Russia Upends Middle East Situation: New Reality, Reviewed Policies

The US puts an end to its training program of Syrian rebel forces and shifts to providing equipment and weapons to existing forces. Its $580m program was beset with a series of embarrassing setbacks and came under harsh criticism after it emerged that the rebels had handed hardware and ammunition over to extremists. “Probably 60 to 80 percent of the arms that America shoveled in have gone to al-Qaida and its affiliates,” said Joshua Landis, a Syria expert at the University of Oklahoma.
