The Indo-Zionist lobbies have long campaigned that the USA replicates the First Gulf War in Pakistan before it withdraws from Afghanistan.

But he may be dissuaded from striking Pakistan if the cost is too high. Pakistan&r

Pakistan and the USA

  0 comments   |     by admin

Pakistan is being subjected to bullying, coercion and intimidation. Its sovereignty is endangered through a well orchestrated plan by its own benefactor and strategic partner, the Unites States of America. It is being governed (rather misgoverned) by the most corrupt and incompetent government in power that was brought to foray by NRO (National Reconciliation Order) d

Would Obama try for a settlement with Taliban

  0 comments   |     by George Friedman

Well, according to what’s been said by the administration, they are attempting to negotiate with the Taliban right now. I think, either way you play it politically, it’s equally troubling for President Obama if he doesn’t have peace by the time the election, the charge can be made that he has an open-ended war, that he doubled-down on Bush’s po

Taliban are talking from a position of strength

  0 comments   |     by Salman Rafi Sheikh

While the US-Taliban talks are of paramount importance in terms of bringing the 17 years old war to an end, there remains little to deny that even after fighting this war for such a long period and inflicting unimaginable loss of life and property on the country, the US has been unable to achieve even its initial objectives i.e., dismantling the Taliban.
