Pakistan’s War of Choice
Pakistan crossed a certain threshold when certain influential segments gave the go ahead to fully support and nurture the Taliban and their allies in Afghanistan and northern areas of Pakstain. Once you make such an ideologica keystone decision there is no turning back, rest assured Pakistan's strategy of depth has not changed a bit. Their forces are doing nothing but strategic maneuvring with regards to this war against extremism, making a big hubbub and sounding victory cries for nothing, a few skirmishes may have been won but there is no underlying war being fought, it's a big smokescreen. Like before they are only eliminating figureheads and pieces that are expendable for the cause of stifling criticism from the west mainly America with regards to eliminating Taliban. A point to be made is that the face of the Pakistani created face of Islamic terrorism has shifted from a ground roots social engineering experiment to a billion dollar full fledged industry. This is not some sort of arcade game where every time the mole lifts it's head you smack it with a hammer. The enemy is being made to look like one thing when in fact they are neatly entrenched already in the intelligence and political establishment, all these terrorists are the same tribesmen who made pacts with the government to defend Pakistan, and what you are seeing is a sort of "Red force vs Blue force" highly compartmentalized internal operation going on with the aims of deceiving the forces in the neighboring country. Do not buy into the marketing campaign of the Pakistani defence establishment like the people have in Pakistan and like the US establishment has swallowed up like toffee. In a few years from now you will see overt backing of extremists to be used against Afghanistan, the minorities of the country (mainly to suppress Turkic nationalism which is a threat to their Pakhtunkwa vehicle of expansionism) and of course India all over again.
