After the horrific attack on Mumbai, now terrorists are fighting against the presence of American troops in Afghanistan who are targeting terrorist
bases of the Al-Qaeda and Taliban along the NW borders of Pakistan.
This area is extremely vital for NATO/American troops fighting the insurgents in Afghanistan as up to 75 percent of their supplies pass through
Pakistan after being unloaded from ships at the Arabian Sea port of Karachi.
This may be a tactic on the part of the Pakistan Government / ISI / Military to blackmail America to relieve pressure on the Mumbai investigations by
indicating the vulnerability of the line of communication which would be impossible to secure in future once Pakistan is forced to pull out its troops
from here to its Eastern border with India as a consequence of the heightened tensions.
As is well known, Pakistan’s game plan was to create an adverse situation with India as an excuse to allow it to withdraw its army from their
Western borders with Afghanistan to the East facing India as it is loosing hundreds of its soldiers there.
For the Army/ISI, running with the hare and hunting with the hounds is becoming increasingly untenable - a tough option that is becoming extremely
difficult to handle. On the one hand they are aiding the Taliban with arms, ammo and logistics support for their operations against American/NATO
Forces in Afghanistan, and on the other it is facing the music from the very same Taliban for helping the West in their war against terror!
Wheels within wheels! And it’s only getting worse. Who’s in command in Pakistan? The alarm bells have started ringing as many Western strategists
are worried about the safety of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons.
