Military operation in Waziristan

Words and deeds of government of USA and Pakistan prove them being Hypocrite. Here are a few lines from an appraisal written by Amir Usman, a former ambassador of Pakistan. For reading the article click on the title above.

امریکہ اور پاکستان کی حکومتوں کا کردار اور گفتار ان کی منافقت ثابت کرتے ہیں۔ پاکستان کے ایک سابق سفیرکے تجزیہ سے کچھ سطور نقل کر رہا ہوں۔ پورا مضموں پڑھنے کے لئے عنوان پر کلک کیجئے۔

Lieutenant-General David Barno, the commander of the US forces in Afghanistan, recently declared at a press conference in Islamabad that “We (Pakistan and the US) collectively feel that there is need to undertake a military operation in North Waziristan to keep pressure on the terrorists net- works.”Brutal killing of Nek Mohammad and other tribal elders is also linked to the same general. In the same press conference, General Barno also said that his area of responsibility included Pakistan and that Pakistani liaison officers were working at the coalition forces headquarters in Kabul.Whichever way you view General Barno’s recent statement, it is an irresponsible utterance violating Pakistan’s sovereignty and independence.
Speaking to a grand tribal jirga on April 17, 1948, at Government House, Peshawar, Mr Jinnah said, “I am fully aware of the part that you have already played in the establishment of Pakistan, and I am thankful to you for all the sympathy and support you gave me in my struggle and fight for the establishment of Pakistan. Keeping in view your loyalty, help, assurances and declarations we ordered the withdrawal of troops from Waziristan as a concrete and definite gesture on our part that we treat you with absolute confidence and trust.”
Compare this with what is happening now or was until recently in Waziristan. This is how we have honoured the Quaid’s pledge to these loyal and brave people.Currently, the government is boasting of unprecedented economic activity in the area.

There has been an assassination attempt on the political agent. A good beginning was made recently by the corps commander, Peshawar, Lieutenant-General Safdar Hussain, who admitted to past mistakes at a press conference, saying that there were no terrorist networks in Waziristan and that he would achieve his objectives by not firing a single bullet.
