Countries dont develop by being malshi of USA
They develop with skill education and good ethics.
Army has no interest in anything apart from its own "army inc"
This is what 99% of pakistanis think and 100% of other /foreigners think.
Army has lost the war of perception soyou can try all u want it wont work
I am shocked that you dont know how many pakistanis were handed over to usa in gunta bay..like really you dont have google.
Iam also amazed how can you drfend pakistanis killed in drones attack but again we know people of FATA Kp and balpchistan arent pakistanis to some people
I have Google access just the same as you. Please dig in and let me know how many "Pakistan-only" nationality citizens were handed over by "our" own intelligence agencies to the amreekis.
Second, nobody is arguing against education, skills and ethics. You and PTI cannot claim to be the only ones wanting that for Pakistan. Any mohib-e-watan Pakistani and 100% of the army, military, establishment wants that for Pakistan.
Third, let's not resort to this "how can you defend" tactic. I am stating facts for which you (and for that matter even IK) has no answer. You all start with "this was not our war" and "drone attacks" and finish there. Nobody ever bought that narrative. Explain, FGS, what options were with Pakistan to fend off American drone attacks when we were supporting Taliban? We needed Taliban to win over Northern Alliance. We paid a cost for it. Do you think we were going to get away with our support of the Taliban without having to pay a price?
Also, please don't give me this "FATA/KP/Bolochistan aren't Pakistanis" blackmail line. I have lived my life all over Pakistan with Pakistanis of all color and I care for them all the same. Part of being in the army circle was there was never a distinction/consideration for who was Punjabi, Pathan, Mohajir, Sindhi etc. etc. I never took any pleasure in Pakistan's sovereignty being breached by the drone attacks but also understood what the long term state strategy was despite taking the damage.
Some examples here Sir:
A sobering read for those who claim that Pakistanis had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/biden-guantanamo-detainee-majid-khan-transferred-belize-rcna68166 NATIONAL SECURITY Biden admin transfers a Guantanamo detainee to Belize Majid Khan...
(I won't even mention Aafia Siddiqui.)
Ok, in both cases, close proximity to Al-Qaida was the reason but agreed that exceptions exist. Where does the narrative of "hundreds" of Pakistanis arrested and handed over to the US and millions upon millions paid in ransom come from?
Aafia Siddique was arrested inside of Afghanistan after marrying and traveling to the country with an Al-Qaida man. Am I wrong?
