Trump's message to Pak

Friday, January 12, 2018

President Trump has done well to Tweet Pakistan's poor report- card on terrorism. His statement that Pakistan had “given us nothing but lies and deceit”, and accused it of providing “safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan” is a severe condemnation of the dilatory and denial techniques of successive governments in Pakistan to stop the terror networks operating in the country. He tweeted that the USA had "foolishly" provided Pakistan $33 billion in 15 years to fight terror. Osama bin Laden, whom the USA was hunting, was found ensconced in a palatial house in Abbottabad, within walking distance of the Pakistan Military Academy. The perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, Lashkar-e-Taiba, have also not been incarcerated. The Mumbai attacks killed 164 and wounded over 300 citizens. Pakistan has treated these issues and India's remonstrations very cavalierly. So, President Trump deserves to be complimented on his blunt talk. His decision could impact the $1.3 billion in annual aid. Pakistan as a nation should also gear up, deal with terrorism, grow economically and stop depending on western nations for doles and charitable handouts to survive or fight terrorism. Moreover, Pakistan citizens should stop believing their media about the fictitious suppression of the Muslims in India. A Pakistan businessman told me he was shocked to hear the call for prayers (Adhan) from mosques when he visited India. He had been told that this is not permitted in India. Such is the ridiculous level of propaganda by religious fanatics in Pakistan. Many Pakistani citizens suffer from a deep inferiority complex vis-a-vis India, since they lost the war in 1971, with the creation of Bangladesh and due to the fact that we acquired nuclear weapons before them. Pakistani colleagues repeatedly tell me, "We cannot be trifled with. We are a nuclear power!" I reply to them, "What is the use of being a nuclear power, when you cannot control terrorism in your backyard and cannot feed your people without aid from other countries?"
