    Pentagon calls symposium on Balochistan | The Nation

    LAHORE – The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), a subsidiary of the Pentagon, is all set to convene a controversial symposium on Balochistan issue at Washington DC next week, it was reliably learnt on Friday. Well-informed sources said that a two-day conference titled ‘Pakistan Symposium: 2014 and Beyond Draft Agenda’ is being organised on 19th and 20th of this month at Washington DC under the auspices of Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) on Balochistan issue.

    It will be the first time that a US Governmental organisation will be involved in projecting the point of view of dissident elements of Balochistan. Reportedly, the speakers also include Malik Siraj Akbar, Tareq Fatah and Waheed Baloch. Pakistan had raised serious objections to hearing on ‘Balochistan’ by Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the United States House of Representative Committee on Foreign Affairs chaired by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher on February 8 and subsequent tabling of bill in US Congress. However the matter was somehow censored by timely diplomatic interventions.

    The impending event reflects on growing American interest in Balochistan. It will raise serious concerns in Pakistan and is likely to be construed as interference by Americans in the internal affairs of the country.

    According to independent observers, the event can seriously undermine the sinking negotiations process between Pakistan and US and will widen the distrust between the two countries.

    This so-called symposium will definitely lead to the deferment of normalcy of relations to the disadvantage of both the countries, otherwise ally in the war on terror. :rofl:

    Last four paragraphs of the article:FROM LIBYA TO SYRIA: "WAR IS A RACKET. IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN".......

    At the same time, attention is turning once again to another of the war racketeers' key interests: Pakistan. There has been newfound congressional interest in the so-called “Free Baluchistan” movement seeking independence for Pakistan's Baluchi nationals. Citing human rights violations, Rep. Rohrbacher (R-California) has introduced a resolution calling on Pakistan to recognize Balochi self-determination. He has even written an op-ed in the Washington Post where he begins his argument with recourse to human rights and switches seamlessly in the fourth paragraph into noting with evident glee the region's natural gas, gold, uranium, and copper reserves.

    Interestingly, Russia agreed last week to pony up $1.5 billion in financing and technical assistance for a proposed Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline. The projected course of the pipeline? It would start in Iran’s southern Assalouyeh Energy Zone and enter Pakistan from the west, crossing straight through Baluchistan. Coincidence, surely. The IP pipeline has had a tumultuous history, complete with plans to run the pipeline all the way to India (an idea from which India has distanced itself but never completely abandoned) and the potential involvement of China, which has flirted with the idea of incorporating the pipeline into a planned logistical network running from the port of Gwadar in Pakistan's southwest all the way to Xinjiang province. Now, with a proposal for Russian funding on the table the pipeline looks closer than ever to becoming a reality.


    From the outset, the US has used every bit of leverage it has to get the parties involved to scrap the idea. Diplomatic pressure has been brought to bear on China, Pakistan, and India, with Beijing and New Delhi both appearing to buckle under the pressure and pull out of the project. The US has backed its own alternative pipeline, a Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India route, but that idea is looking less feasible by the day. Iran has nearly completed its share of the proposed IP pipeline, but Pakistan has been hesitant. Now along come the racketeers to fund yet another rebel movement in another geostrategically vital corridor, and before you know it “Free Baluchistan” might derail the project altogether. Look for US pressure on the Pakistani government regarding Baluchistan to increase as the pipeline comes closer to completion.


    Butler was right. War is a racket, after all. These days the muscle men are rent-a-mobs and insurgents more so than the U.S. military, but the idea is the same: fund, arm and train the fighters to secure the resources and control the strategic areas. In Libya the NATO-backed rebels wrested the oil spigot from the unpredictable Gaddafi. In Syria the “Friends of Syria” are overthrowing a key Iranian ally and taking over an important square on the geopolitical chessboard. In Pakistan, American-backed rebels may succeed in driving a wedge through a key Iran-Pakistan pipeline. And the racket continues. One would do well to remember the grand finale of Butler's speech: “To hell with war!”

    Pakis have been doing it to the US openly. No harm in getting ugly with them. Enough of niceties and diplomatic and civil language with them.

    I hope Balochs welcoming American a lot, because if maybe the Americans perceiving the Balochs are better friends of them than the pakjabs, something can to change in its foreign policy to South Asia.

    If American were smart, they repeats with Balochs in Pakistan the same alliance that they had with Kurds in Iraq.

    Their maybe a little problem this time, Pakistan got nukes and Talibanis patrolling to grab some, if they feel threatened upon and if cant react directly they might open the vault for the Talibanis at their disposal, as a last resort.

    Sure, Pakistan is not Iraq, and it is not possible for American to repeat thorough the same strategy employed against Saddam Hussein.

    But they should do the possible to support the Balochs with financing and guns, in an unofficial way of course, and always Pakjabis be bad-behaviored in Afghanistan's stabilization, OTAN's routes or terrorism against in India, to utilize the Baloch guerilla to punish them.

    Don't try to bite what we might not be able to chew. Let us start with area that is likely to produce positive result for USA and her alliance. We can leave Karachi to gangs of the city and if Pakistan escalates than we can send separate Armada of Naval force to wreck havoc on their port city.
