    Under international pressure over terrorism, Pakistan is up to new ploys to have her blood soaked hands free of blame through clever chicanery and skulduggery!

    That the LeT is an instrument and a weapon of Pakistan's geostrategic plans is no secret!

    To understand any issue, it is important to gather all type of views and analyse them for a better understand and therefrom have a proper response.

    The above was the view of STRATFOR, which is an important source to analyse and hence I appended the article with my comments. I left it generalised so that the article would draw comments.

    STRATFOR claims - ‘’ STRATFOR’s global team of intelligence professionals provides an audience of decision-makers and sophisticated news consumers in the U.S. and around the world with unique insights into political, economic, and military developments. The company uses human intelligence and other sources combined with powerful analysis based on geopolitics to produce penetrating explanations of world events. This independent, non-ideological content enables users not only to better understand international events, but also to reduce risks and identify opportunities in every region of the globe.’’

    That is their claim, but the public has to be discerning. It is important to analytically observe this article.

    It is an indicator that everything that meets the eye should be taken only at face value without gushing with National narcissism. There is always a disconnect between power brokers and the Govt. Isn’t this article an interesting observation what when viewed with Obama’s address to the Indian Parliament? Is the article and Obama’s speech complementary?
    One must take stock of the power behind the international scene at play i.e. the so called ‘think tanks’.

    One must observe the wheels within wheels!

    Let us analyse this article and check it with US’ official pronouncement and investigations that are available in the public domain

    The article states “India blamed the LeT for the 2008 Mumbai attacks and the 2001 parliament attack”. Now, is it India alone which says so? What do the US agencies say? What does Headley have to say? It’s all very easy to coin new phrases as – neo LeT. Can anyone deny that ISI is using the LeT in its various garbs but with intertwining interest and singular aim? The US does not deny the connection. Has the various terrorist organisations banned by Pakistan not rejuvenated under a different name? Aren’t the organisation and its aims, the same? So, it is all very suave to claim they are neo LeT when in actually it is the same!! Isn’t it laughable that the article claims that “as “LeT,” however, is no longer an ally of Pakistan”!

    It is claimed that the connection between the LeT and other Pakistan terrorist outfits are but nebulous with the Naxalites. If that be so, then how come those who have seen the videos of Taliban and LeT training and that of the Naxalites or Maoist to be exact, observe it to be so similar!

    Standardised weapons are used by the Taliban since they are funded, organised and supported in its entire facet by the ISI. The Taliban does not have to forage and hunt for weapons. The Maoists, on the other hand, have to do good with whatever it can lay hands on and whatever it is gifted with by the inimical govts to India. And this also proves that the Taliban is ISI sponsored!

    To believe that Maoists are homegrown and are sustained by Indian sources is being naive. Such a huge organisation as the Maoists cannot survive on internal resources. Therefore, the contention that it is limited connection with foreign assets and govts is total disinformation at its best since anyone who is conversant with the growth of insurgencies would know the capabilities of local insurgencies and those sponsored from abroad.

    India has not demonised ISI for the last 50 years. India has been showcasing the truth to the ‘’Emperor without his clothes’’! It is only now they are realising since they are in the same boat in Afghanistan and having realised that the Pak Army and the ISI are running with the hares and hunting with the hounds! As far as China’s assistance to rebel groups in peripheral countries, has the US forgotten Vietnam, where the claimed a similar support to the VC or the issues of the Kachen and Shan rebels of Myanmar?

    What must be noticed is that STRATFOR does not debunk the fact that China supplies the Maoists. Inters as “LeT,” however, is no longer an ally of Pakistan ting, what?

    Yet, STRATFOR is gushing in support to promote the theory that Pakistan is purer than driven snow and they hardly have any connection with the Maoists.

    The moral of starting the thread is - Beware of the Greek who brings gifts!

    Each country promotes its own interest and it is not good to take everything at face value! Even friends of India must be treated in a manner where India's national interest are not compromised!
