      Ø 10,000 Indian troops are stationed in Afghanistan under the garb of
      supervising construction of road Jalalabad-Port Chahbahar project that
      has now been completed. Whereas India has officially declared 14 Indian
      consulates in Afghanistan, on ground they have 107 in which 20
      intelligence units are burning their midnight oil to destabilise
      Pakistan

      Ø After 9/11 CIA bought the loyalties of pro-Pakistan tribal chiefs,
      leaving ISI and MI behind, those who refused were killed

      Ø Nek Mohammad was killed by Americans when he made peace with
      Pakistan

      Ø ISI had once given six figure coordinates of Baitullah and yet no
      Hellfire missile was fired on his hideout by CIA

      Ø Foreign intelligence agents are involved in carrying out gruesome
      beheadings of security personnel and torching girls' schools to defame
      the real Taliban who had a peaceful agenda

      Ø Besides CIA and RAW, even Iran and Uzbekistan had developed their
      tentacles in Balochistan, Swat and Kurram Agency

      Ø The nexus in Kabul is working upon a scripted plan to make FATA
      lawless and beyond the control of security forces, push militancy into
      settled areas and then into major cities and thus create a civil warlike
      situation to prove their contention that Pakistan was the most dangerous
      country in the world and that the extremists were on the verge of taking
      over power and nuclear weapons


      ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—When Gen. Musharraf submitted to U.S. pressure
      after 9/11 and ditched the Taliban in Afghanistan, he provided air bases
      as well as logistics support and shared intelligence with CIA. He
      allowed CIA and FBI to recruit agents in FATA and other places and to
      establish their outposts. The focus of ISI and other agencies was
      shifted towards hunting and nabbing so-called terrorists all over the
      country, in monitoring dissident elements within the army and in
      political wheeling and dealings. The CIA acquired all the links ISI and
      MI had both sides of the Pak-Afghan border and gradually took most
      agents on ISI payroll within its fold. By virtue of having better
      technology and means the CIA was able to take over intelligence
      acquisition and dissemination system. As a consequence the troops
      operating in FATA became entirely dependent upon CIA inputs. Taking
      advantage of complete liberty of action, CIA succeeded in buying the
      loyalties of many tribal chiefs and notables in FATA by doling out
      dollars in sacks since it knew that the Pashtun could not be crushed by
      force but could be purchased. Those not falling in line were got killed.

      In FATA, Nek Muhammad was first cultivated and provided logistic
      support. When he entered into a peace deal with Pak Army in July 2005,
      he was killed using precision guided missile. Abdullah Mehsud, an Afghan
      war veteran who had also fought the Northern Alliance in
      October-November 2001 was captured and brainwashed during his two years
      internment in Guantanamo Bay. He was released after agreeing to work on
      terms dictated by CIA and he soon was able to takeover the leadership
      role. His death at Zhob at the hands of Pak security forces was a loss
      for CIA.

      Baitulah Mehsud and Fazlullah had not taken part in Afghan jihad and do
      not qualify to head Taliban; yet 30 year old Baitullah has managed to
      create Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Fazlullah calls the shots in
      Swat. Mulla Omar had never shown interest in establishing any links with
      Pakistani Taliban and had warned Nek Muhammad not to operate under the
      brand name of Taliban. It is being questioned as to how come Baitullah,
      Fazlullah and their spokesmen desperately wanted by Pakistan security
      forces have escaped the hawk eye of USA, particularly after they have
      been seen giving detailed interviews to media and using their cell
      phones? ISI had once given six figure coordinates of Baitullah and yet
      no Hellfire missile was fired on his hideout by CIA. The TTP that has
      spread its influence in all the seven agencies of tribal belt and in
      neighboring settled districts of NWFP has succeeded in making inroads
      into Punjab, particularly southern Punjab. Large number has been
      recruited from Chiniot, Bahawalpur, Dera Nawab, Bahawalnagar,
      Faisalabad, Sialkot and other places.

      After Shakai peace deal with the militants in South Waziristan in July
      2005, Pakistan was subjected to a calculated slander campaign. Having
      pushed more than one hundred thousand troops into the furnace of FATA it
      was scoffed at for not doing enough to control militancy in FATA.
      Pakistan was also accused of nuclear proliferation and IAEA kept up the
      pressure to hand over AQ Khan for interrogation. Musharraf accepted the
      charge and forced AQ Khan to make a confession to defuse the heat. The
      religious extremist threat was blown out of all proportions and it was
      repeatedly stated that Pakistan's nuclear assets had become unsafe.
      Musharraf accepted this charge as well and promised to fight extremism
      and terrorism with full force.

      After declaring Pakistan as the most dangerous country, FATA was
      declared as the most dangerous place on earth. Pakistan was blamed for
      growing turbulence in Afghanistan since in the view of U.S. military
      leaders and Karzai Pak army was not doing enough to control militancy.
      The phenomenon of missile attacks by drones commenced in January 2006
      when a suspected target in Damadola was attacked killing scores of
      innocent civilians. Another deadly missile attack was launched on a
      Madrassa in Bajaur in October that year killing 80 students. Ever since,
      this phenomenon continues unabated.

      Once the ISI was freed from the wild goose chase of so-called terrorists
      and came under pressure on account of missing persons, it started to
      concentrate on its primary task in the troubled spots. To its horror it
      found far too many militant groups and criminal gangs operating under
      the guise of religious militants and cultivated by foreign agencies.

      They were the ones involved in carrying out gruesome beheadings of
      security personnel and torching girls' schools to defame the real
      Taliban who had a peaceful agenda. Besides CIA and RAW, even Iran and
      Uzbekistan had developed their tentacles in Balochistan, Swat and Kurram
      Agency. Most of the pro-Pakistan groups had been purchased or
      neutralized and those not coming to terms were eliminated by groups
      sponsored by CIA. Things had gone topsy-turvy and ISI found itself at a
      loss how to differentiate between friend and foe.

      It is when the ISI began to recover the lost ground and renewed its old
      contacts in FATA and started to expose and block clandestine activities
      of CIA, RAW and RAM that all hell broke lose on ISI. Instead of feeling
      ashamed of what they were doing, USA had the cheeks to start making hue
      and cry that ISI was linked with the Taliban and that it must be
      emasculated. The three colluding partners lost their cool when the
      Indian Embassy in Kabul was subjected to a suicide attack on 7 July
      2008. The trio fumed with anger and blamed ISI without even carrying out
      preliminary investigations. It was alleged that the perpetrator of
      suicide attack belonged to Gujranwala. Adm. Mike Mullen and Deputy
      Director CIA Stephen Kappes came huffing and puffing to Islamabad on 12
      July and expressed their concern in strong words. Both Gen Tariq and Gen
      Kayani were told to bring the ISI to heel and to control militancy on
      their side of the border. The details of suicide bomber provided by the
      visitors proved false. It transpired later on that it was a bomb planted
      in a parked jeep which was detonated with the help of a remote control
      and was masterminded by Mossad.

      The month of September saw intensification of missile attacks and each
      attack resulted in loss of innocent lives. The idea was to antagonize
      pro-government Waziris and also to force them to migrate as had happened
      in case of Bajaur. To further up the ante, Pakistan was declared as a
      battleground and a first ever ground attack was carried out by U.S.
      troops on the night of 3 September at Angoor Adda killing 15 men women
      and children. A deadly missile attack was conducted on pro-Pakistan
      Jalaluddin Haqqani house in North Waziristan on 8 September killing 25
      inmates mostly women and children. He was blamed for carrying out attack
      on Indian Embassy.

      The intruding drone was forced to beat a hasty retreat on 12 September
      when Pakistani jets got airborne and started to track it. A ground
      attack on 15th was also thwarted by the troops and locals. So far, 62
      border violations have been carried out by U.S.-ISAF forces including 36
      after the takeover by PPP government in March 2008. So far 30 missile
      attacks have been made killing innocent people. In none of the attacks
      any Al-Qaada operative or militant Taliban was killed.

      The nexus in Kabul is working upon a scripted plan to make FATA lawless
      and beyond the control of security forces, push militancy into settled
      areas and then into major cities and thus create a civil warlike
      situation to prove their contention that Pakistan was the most dangerous
      country in the world and that the extremists were on the verge of taking
      over power and nuclear weapons. After inflaming South Waziristan, North
      Waziristan, Mohmand Agency, Khyber Agency, Darra Adam Khel, Kurram
      Agency, Hangu and Swat, Bajaur Agency was built into a stronghold of
      militants where huge cache of arms and ammunition was dumped. By virtue
      of being located at the crossroad of the tribal belt and also linked
      with Dir, Swat and Afghanistan, it was to act as bulwark and a launching
      pad to provide reinforcement to other areas.

      10,000 Indian troops are stationed in Afghanistan under the garb of
      supervising construction of road Jalalabad-Port Chahbahar project that
      has now been completed. Whereas India has officially declared 14 Indian
      consulates in Afghanistan, on ground they have 107 in which 20
      intelligence units are burning their midnight oil to destabilise
      Pakistan. Many mercantile shops run by Indians have an intelligence
      office in the rear. In Wakhan, a religious Madrassa run by Indian Muslim
      clerics is functioning since 2002 under the patronage of RAW and Mossad.
      Very young boys, mostly orphans, destitute or homeless are recruited.
      Recruits are mostly Afghans, Uzbeks, Tajiks and Caucasians. The latter
      being fair skinned and resembling Europeans are trained to hit targets
      in Europe or in USA to once again create a 9/11 like situation.

      Reportedly, 10,000 ideologically motivated terrorist and suicide bombers
      have been trained. Besides receiving military training, they have also
      been made to learn Pashto and customs of the Pashtun. They are regularly
      infiltrated into troubled spots of Pakistan. Posing as volunteers they
      join the rank and file of militants to fight the army. They are the ones
      who are destroying schools, CD shops, bridges and other installations
      and carrying out brutal beheading of captured personnel. The idea is to
      create chaos and confusion and also to defame the real Taliban that have
      not come under their influence. They are also responsible for creating
      cleavages within the people of FATA and in disrupting peace deals. In
      Kurram Agency, Afghan officers and soldiers are actively involved in the
      sectarian conflict by way of providing arms and ammunition to Shias
      belonging to Tori tribe and physically participating in duels with
      Sunnis. In Swat, Fazlullah led militants are supplied with war munitions
      as well as fighters.

      Likewise, dissident tribal chiefs in Balochistan including late Akbar
      Bugti were also taken on board. The CIA helped in reincarnating BLA and
      providing all sorts of war munitions to Baloch militants belonging to
      Bugti, Marri and Mengal tribes and establishing over 60 Farari camps in
      Balochistan. Shamsi airbase that was handed over to USA in October 2001,
      houses Blackhawk helicopters primarily engaged in monitoring the entire
      length of Iranian border. CIA has cultivated Sunni Iranian Baloch
      Jandullah group (not the one that had operated against 5 Corps
      commander). It is anti- Iranian regime and was utilized by CIA to
      carryout acts of sabotage in Iran through Zahidan. Iran has now
      constructed a stone wall all along its border to prevent cross border
      terrorism from Baluchistan. It has clouded Pak-Iran relations since the
      latter feels that such activities could not have been undertaken without
      the blessing of Pak government.

      It is now clear that our so-called friends have been playing a double
      game. Now that USA has bared its teeth and let its intentions known, to
      pretend that it would stop short of achieving its objectives will be
      like living in fools' paradise. It is simply degrading to unashamedly
      say that we cannot fight the Americans. It is also preposterous to
      assume that Pakistan may not survive without American support.
      Pro-American elements within Pakistan on U.S. payroll have been
      parroting this theme since creation of Pakistan to safeguard their
      vested interest. North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Iran, Somalia
      are living examples who have survived despite adopting hostile posture
      against USA. It is high time that we gird up our loins and put our act
      together to face up to the challenge boldly.

      The army under Gen. Kayani has expressed its resolve to confront the
      threat and safeguard country's sovereignty irrespective of the
      consequences. It is now up to our week-kneed rulers oblivious of the
      ominous threat and still busy in power game as to how they stand up to
      the test. It will be naive to expect that the threat will be warded off
      with diplomacy alone. We must make USA realize that it will become
      exceedingly difficult for U.S. led allied troops to operate in
      Afghanistan if Pakistan opts out of fighting U.S. war of terror and
      refuses to provide transit facility to carry oil and food supplies to
      its troops in Afghanistan. The magnitude of dependence can be gauged
      from the fact each day over 400 containers ply from Karachi and Quetta
      to Afghanistan transporting food, munitions and 300 million gallons of
      fuel for U.S.-Nato troops in Afghanistan. We may also consider bridling
      CIA's unchecked activities and closing down four bases in control of
      USA.
