Kerry-Lugar Bill

I have just completed reading of Kerry-Lugar Bill; it seems to be an effort of just and fair minded Senator Kerry and Senator Lugar to create some respect for human rights in Pakistan, by providing financial incentive to the government and people of Pakistan. The said bill is under discussion in National Assembly of Pakistan.

I am based here in Kohat district of Pakistan which is surrounded by tribal areas, Kohat is located at 40 miles distance from Peshawar capital of NWFP, my only access to the outside world is a radio, cell phone and internet, through my laptop I stay in touch with happenings in developed world, but as correspondent of Associated Press of Pakistan, my prime responsibility is mailing of news and articles regarding happenings inside the district of Kohat. Amid security forces operations in tribal areas of Pakistan, Kohat also became target of terrorist attacks, the most deadliest attack was carried out in Kacha Paka village of Kohat last month in which at least 40 people mostly civilian were killed.

But today’s suicide car bomb attack carried out by terrorists in Khyber bazaar of Peshawar in which at least 49 people were killed and more then 100 others were wounded, most of the people killed and injured were civilians was the worst incident of violence ever carried out in settled area of Pakistan.

The way journalists are facilitated and encouraged in USA or other developed democracies of the world, in Pakistan where recently press freedom was granted is not an ideal place for journalists, I do have a large readership in outside world at, and at but I am not paid by these websites for my writings so far. Associated Press of Pakistan also pay so little and so late that survival becomes a challenge for me. Despite of all these odds I do strive to serve the humanity through my writings, and also appreciate the efforts of all those working for promotion of peace in the world.

Few weeks ago Senator Kerry’s statement published in the daily News of Pakistan, had caught my attention in which the Senator had advised Afghan government to abstain from destabilizing Pakistan. Off and on intelligence sources in Pakistan inform me about evidence of external intervention in tribal areas and settled areas of NWFP province of Pakistan, and I do honestly expose all such external elements guilty of destabilizing Pakistan through my writings, at the same time I do strive to create more understanding and cooperation between Pakistan and its neighboring countries. Pakistan, India and Afghanistan are part of the third world where human rights, democracy and peace are somewhat alien concepts.

In my opinion Kerry-Lugar Bill if approved by National Assembly of Pakistan, and if the reservation of Pakistan Armed forces are addressed and can be addressed by President Barak Obama, President of USA can send back the bill to legislature with his own suggestion and the bill can be approved again with concerns addressed of the president. The aid package for Pakistan will definitely result in improvement of human rights situation in Pakistan.

I do want to congratulate President Barak Obama for his well deserved achievement of Nobel Prize with the hope that he will keep on striving to promote and implement fundamental rights clauses of UN Charter in the UN member countries and elsewhere in the world.

Comparison of US reaction to Pearl Harbor and nine eleven attacks

History reflects that USA had declared its inclusion in Second World War, when Japanese U boats had launched an attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans had dropped two nuclear bombs on Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Naga Saki, eventually Japan was captured, demilitarized and was developed again by USA and its western allies. In case of attack on Pearl Harbor, USA reacted against visible and known adversary.

In the wake of nine eleven attacks USA reacted sharply to dismantle bases of terror in Afghanistan and Iraq, focus of US attention became South Asia and Middle East, no nuclear bomb was used this time against adversaries but cluster bombs were used in Afghanistan to eliminate terrorist of Alqaeeda and Taliban militants.

Guantanama Bay prison and many other prisons around the world maintained by CIA to keep Alqaeeda and Taliban captives was a reaction of mild nature as compare to nuclear attacks on Heroshima and Nagasaki. Iraq was captured, Sadam Hussain was dethroned and finally hanged, Taliban rule was ended in Afghanistan and hide outs of militants were heavily bombed in post nine eleven era.

Difference in attack on Pearl Harbor and nine eleven attacks on twin towers is that attack on Pearl Harbor was carried out by Japanese U boats, while promoting the desire of aggrandizement of ruler of Japan, whom was in alliance with Hitler of Germany and Mussolini of Italy, all the three countries were in war with European powers to dominate Europe and Asia. Nine eleven attacks were carried out by a terrorist organization known as Alqaeeda, which has tentacles in almost every country of the world, so to root out this terrorist organization completely, CIA if acts more like anti terrorist agency, can make the job of US Armed forces much easier then before, and bloodless. Common people in Afghanistan and Pakistan are least likely to support Alqaeeda, only extremely ignorant and poor among them can fall into the trap of Alqaeeda leadership bent upon befooling them in the name of Islam.

Civil society in Pakistan is under attack since long, religious political entities having minor support among public most often resort to impose their will through barrel of the gun, during Zia coup against Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Jamaat Islami had used Army guns to impose its own brand of Islam on civil society in Pakistan, Mullah Fazlullah of Swat has recently tried to capture Pakistan through barrel of gun.

Second World War was ended in few years, but eight years long war against terror will need more years to end, terrorist organization Alqaeeda and its allies are organizations and very few people are working for these organization to promote the cause of terror. Their number is likely to increase in areas where poverty and ignorance is common. Their existence is not confined to a single country, from Egypt to Afghanistan they are spread over in many countries. Alqaeeda have support in religious political entities in Egypt, Pakistan and Afghanistan, the organization has some economic base too. A comprehensive strategy to defeat Alqaeeda politically is also need of the hour. Economic and political uplift of Pakistan and Afghanistan can also help in minimizing political and economic base of Alqaeeda.

General Stanley analysis of Afghan situation before arrival of cruel winter season

After publication of General Stanley A. McChrystal's summary in Washington post, number of drone attacks on tribal areas of Pakistan has been increased, interesting aspect of the summary was alleged involvement of ISI in attacks on US lead NATO forces in Afghanistan, Iranian Qudus alleged involvement in attack on US lead NATO forces in Afghanistan seems quite logical, because US presence in Afghanistan and Iraq might be conceived in Iran as encirclement of Iran, for possible US attack on Iran. Keeping the fact in view that Pakistan is a most allied ally of USA in war against terror, Pakistan does not fear any US attack, but General Stanley states in his summary that he has got the evidence of ISI involvement in attacks on US lead NATO forces.

An official of US embassy has also reportedly said before newsmen that Mullah Umer including his Quetta Sura is in Balochistan and Usama Bin Laden is also alive and present in tribal areas of Pakistan. Meanwhile ISI chief General Pasha has reportedly told the CIA chief during his current visit of USA that ISI has no links with terrorists. Interior Minister of Pakistan Mr. Malik has reportedly said that if evidence regarding Quetta Sura and Alqaeeda chief Bin Ladin’s presence in Pakistan if produced before Pakistani authorities, action will be taken against them.

General Stanley is a newly appointed boss of US forces in Afghanistan, his analysis of the situation in Afghanistan will surely based on concrete evidence, though his demand for more US troops in Afghanistan is still under consideration in Pentagon, his demand seems to be quite logical, media reports reflect that number of attacks on US lead NATO forces has been increased, Taliban militants backed by Alqeeda are using Afghan populace as human shield, story of Fox Company commander in Hilmand province of Afghanistan published in New York times reflects the dilemma, which American forces are facing in Afghanistan, during combat operations against Taliban extremists. Women and children become possible victim, during confrontation between US forces and militants in Hilmand.

Pakistan has cleared Swat, Bonair and other areas of Malakand division from militants after, shifting civilian population to safer places, US forces can do the same in Afghanistan, in that respect increased number of US troops, cooperation of Afghan Army and police force can also pave the way for early US military victory in Afghanistan. Expertise of Pakistan Armed forces can be utilized in Afghanistan provided that US government shall clear all the doubts regarding its intentions about Pakistan, probable ISI involvement in attacks on US lead NATO forces can be an outcome of fear of encirclement of Pakistan by US lead NATO forces and India on its Eastern and Western borders.

During Eight long years, US lead NATO forces have strived to defeat Taliban and Alqaeeda militants in Afghanistan militarily, with the cooperation of Pakistan, Alqaeeda activity has been confined to Afghanistan and Pakistan, it never succeeded in launching any other attack like nine eleven on US soil, obvious objectives of US lead NATO forces arrival in Afghanistan are elimination of Alqeeda and its Taliban allies, reconstruction of Afghanistan and restoration of peace in war ravaged country. Much has been achieved during past eight years. Cruel Afghan winter season is about to arrive which calms down the militants usually, US General Stanley will be having enough time in winters to come up with better strategy to combat ignorance prevailing in Afghanistan through military means.
