General Tariq Khan doesn't mess about, once he suggested firing missiles into Afghanistan where TTP had settled to prevent them from marrying into locals lol
He knows the local psychology, so his comments were measured, knowing how over a few weeks, how they would be received. He even gets acknowledged in US diplomatic messages per Wikileaks as being serious about his mission of taking the fight to the TTP.
So his endorsement for IK, who also doesn’t want to use military force on Pakistani civilians, is commendable. He knows the political balancing acts governments need to play in keep law and order.
Tariq Khan is an educated guy I wonder why we have babbumaxxing instead of people like him.
A culture of shortsightedness
, as has become clear to see. It seems things don’t get thought out more beyond 5 years amongst Pakistan elite.
We need only look at the fact that under the PTI government a national security vision document was put out in early 2022. I’m not sure any other government has put out such a document. We need 25-30 year plans. Like a working person plans out their career and how to save and invest for retirement.
