If the U.S. and NATO need Islamabad’s cooperation in maintaining the vital artery of supply then it must respect the sentiments and the sovereignty of Pakistan. Or with such acts of war is Obama trying to prove what Bob Woodward has said in his book, ‘Obama’s War?’

Dr S.M. Rahman:
It is ironical, in fact out-rightly immoral on the part of the so called politicians and constitutional experts, who want General Musharraf to stage a comeback and grab political power, the voters being utterly ignorant and gullible. It could only be for utilitarian interests and not the least for Pakistan that they want him back to further pollute the political culture of Pakistan.

Accommodating Pakistan’s strategic concerns and those of other developing nations in the CD provides the best and the only way forward if disarmament is to be pursued on the basis of the principle of equal security for all.

Mushrraaf sold Dr Afia Siddiqui, the daughter of Pakistan and the Zardari deliberately failed to defend and protect her?

The extent of U.S. support for Iraq during the war was so broad that needs an all-encompassing investigative research to be explained. On May 25, 1994, the U.S. Senate Banking Committee published a report in which it was stated that “pathogenic (disease producing), toxigenic (poisonous), and other biological research materials were exported to Iraq pursuant to application and licensing by the U.S. Department of Commerce.”

In fact, Pakistan’s province, Balochistan where China has invested billion of dollars to develop Gwadar seaport that could link Central Asian trade with rest of the world, irritates both Washington and New Delhi. It has even shifted the central gravity of the Great Game to Pakistan.
