    New Delhi - A resolution of the outstanding Kashmir issue would make Pakistan a "more normal state" and reduce its preoccupation with India, said a former CIA officer, who was one of the architects of US President Barack Obama's Af-Pak policy in his first term.

    In his latest book Avoiding Armageddon: America, India, and Pakistan to the Brink and Back, Bruce Riedel said by eliminating Pakistan's desire to wage asymmetric warfare against India, it would also discourage Pakistan from making alliances with the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba and al Qaeda.

    Riedel and late Richard Holbrooke were the architects of Obama's Af-Pak policy. He is currently a research scholar at the prestigious Brookings Institute.

    "The resolution of the Kashmir issue would go a long way toward making Pakistan a more normal state and reducing its preoccupation with India," he wrote.

    He said it would also remove a major rationale for the army's disproportionate role in Pakistani national security affairs that in turn would help to ensure the survival of genuine civilian democratic rule in the country.

    "Former ambassador William Milam, a seasoned South Asia hand, has rightly stressed that the ‘India-Centricity of the Pakistani mindset is the most important factor and variable’ in the future of the country. Such an agreement would not resolve all the tensions between the two neighbours. However, their disputes on issues other than Kashmir are comparatively trivial," he wrote.

    "A Kashmir deal would set the stage for a different era in the subcontinent and for more productive interaction between the international community and Pakistan. It could set the stage for a genuine rapprochement between India and Pakistan and nurture trade and economic interaction, which could transform the subcontinent for the better," Riedel said.

    He said "it is also in India's interest" to find a solution to the conflict, which had gone on far too long.

    "Since the Kargil war in 1999, the Indians have been more open to an American role in Kashmir because they sense that Washington is fundamentally in favour of a resolution to maintain the status quo, which India can accept," he claimed.

    "The key to Indian cooperation will be whether the United States can make clear to Pakistan that some red lines regarding terrorism are real, especially a red line on Lashkar-e-Tayyba. If [Congress President] Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister [Manmohan] Singh can point to real evidence that LeT is being broken up and dismantled in Pakistan, then they will have the political clout to advance the back-channel talks to secure a peace breakthrough," Riedel wrote.

    "It is clearly in the American interest to try to defuse a lingering conflict that has generated global terrorism and repeatedly threatened to create a full-scale military confrontation on the subcontinent," he wrote.

    Wonder if tomorrow Pakistan ask every US woman to make them normal will US concede to their request.

    BTW we also admit that Pakistan has not been normal state ever since 1947, but then it is not our problem and we have care.

    Another stupid and uneducated meandering of a person who does not understand the psychology of the people of Asia.

    These people think that they are highly learned about the world and its ways when they are totally divorced from the psychology, ethos, culture and religious thought orientation of the area.

    If they were so clever, then Somalia, Sudan, Iraq and Afghanistan would not be still burning!

    When the Pakistanis have taken on the self appointed mantle of being the custodians of Islam in the subcontinent, will they stop at Kashmir?

    He is right. Pakistan should settle with India by handing back over the occupied kashmir territory.

    Once a terrorist always a terrorist, Pakistan can never become normal, Islamic radicalism has been injected very deep into their veins and brains.They have encroached PoK which is our land let them return it and forget Kashmir which is the only one solution to Paki Jihadi mentality.

    Never ever..

    I do not think so...

    Had they been having Kashmir as their root prblem then why would Bangladesh be born ??

    Give them Kashmir and they will demand entire India as their Mughal pop's property.. ?
    Their thinking and psyche is totally absurd... they want entire afghanistan... they want Iran.. they want entire Muslim world to accept them as their leader... They want Russia and USA to be subjugated to their wishes... they want entire India ... They want China...

    There is no end to their maglomania .. they are a lost case !!

    Actually, we should all hand it over our countries to Uzbekistan because Babur was part of a Timur-descended family ruling the Central Asian province of Ferghana.

    The day Pakistan is normal, that would be the arrival of the Day of Judgement.=- the final and eternal judgment by God of every nation.

    Holbrooke would be redundant!

    The biggest blunder anyone can make wrt to India and Pak is to say Kashmir will resolve everything.

    They say every Muslim who attacked India is a Paki. Ghauri, Babur, Abdali missile rings a bell? They may well say Genghis Khan was a Paki!
