US review of Afghan strategy and Pakistan

Bookmark and Share

Foreign office of Pakistan has communicated to the US that Pakistan should be taken on board while US reviews and formulates Afghan strategy afresh. By all logic, US ought to take Pakistan's point of view. However, there has been no response on the issue from the US government. Any increase or decrease in troops is going to have a direct bearing on Pakistan. Even other aspects of the strategy related to use of force or negotiations, or a combination thereof, too, will directly or indirectly affect Pakistan's efforts in the war on terror. Obama has repeatedly asked the planners to review the strategy from the beginning till end to include the time frame and methodology of withdrawal of troops from the region. This, too, is relevant to Pakistan as to how Pakistan should plan its strategy once US and NATO troops leave the region.

On one hand US considers Pakistan to be the front line state on the US and NATO allies' war on terror. US has also, in the recent past, grouped Pakistan with Afghanistan to fight its war against terror and calls it as its AF-Pak strategy. Isn't it then surprising that Pakistan is not being taken on board? There must be reasons for the same. Pakistan government needs to look into the matter seriously and take appropriate diplomatic and other measures. Learning from this, Pakistan should understand that, in the eyes of America, Pakistan's role has been and will remain reactive and not pro active despite the latter being so called non NATO ally of US.

Once again we are heading towards a disaster of abandonment. US came in without doing its homework on Afghanistan, hoping to win over with drones and sophistications of weapon systems and thousands of deadly daisy cutters. Now when nothing is working, the seem to be packing up, leaving the entire backlash to be faced by Pakistan.

I agree. There is nothing known as love and emotional attachment in international affairs. Who knows what were and are the real objectives of US invasion of Afghanistan and sitting in and in the neighborhood of Pakistan. Pakistan, for sure, stands weakened as a result thereof.
