5000 TTP fighters with their families making it to 35,000 people.
What a clown
The Afghans themselves want to fight you since 1947 and they claim it openly but you're bitching out looking for excuses to not defend yourself
There's not going to be any real conflict with India since both sides have nukes anyway
America left Afghanistan as victorious as she entered it.
he is right. we are a broken, poor country! have to be realistic!
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Tuesday berated the coalition government for issuing "irresponsible statements" against the Taliban-led Afghan administration and stressed cooperation with the neighbouring nation.
- Imran Khan warns of "never-ending" war on terror.
- PTI chief asks govt to ensure better ties with Afghans.
- "Ministers are issuing irresponsible statements."
Islamabad has repeatedly raised concerns over Kabul's harbouring of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants and not implementing its promise of ensuring that its soil is not used for terrorism.
TTP has ended the ceasefire with Pakistan and increased terror activities across the country, leaving several people dead and scores injured, despite the government's "zero-tolerance" policy.
"Ministers are issuing irresponsible statements that they are planning to attack Afghanistan; if the Afghan government stops cooperation with [Pakistan], then we will have a never-ending war on our hands," Khan told a seminar, which he addressed via video link from Lahore.
Khan, who was ousted as the prime minister in April, had advocated for the world to engage with the Taliban administration and not isolate them or it would lead to not only regional, but global consequences.
The PTI chief said the coalition government was not focusing on talks with its Afghan counterpart and that Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari's first foreign trip should have been to the war-torn neighbouring country.
The former prime minister said military operations "never" bear fruit and they are part of peace agreements, as he reiterated that the government should engage with the Taliban to avoid terror activities on Pakistani soil.
"We had a golden opportunity when America left Afghanistan; we tried to better our ties with the Ashraf Ghani government as best as we could and decided not to intervene in Afghan affairs," he said.
But once the Taliban took over, Khan also kept engaging with them, and he said that "Pakistan helped evacuate foreigners from Afghanistan".
'Ending corruption'Slamming the "imported government" for the rising terror incidents, he said that during his tenure, the National Security Committee (NSC) had divided to support the tribal areas, but the current regime did not focus on them.
"These people [current rulers] are focusing on ending their corruption cases. They have not focused on the economy," he said, claiming that due to the government's policies, there has been a rise in terrorism.
The PTI chief said that controlling the borders is the federal government's responsibility and noted that "I had already said that when you can't control your economy, you cannot control terrorism".
Ex-PM Khan added that the police do not stand a chance against the terrorists due to their weapons. "Terrorists are equipped with modern weapons that the US left behind."
The nation of 220 million people is facing a rise in terrorism from the last few months, with the NSC — the top body on security and foreign policy — stressing that "terrorists are enemies of Pakistan".
The TTP regrouped in Afghanistan after the Taliban's takeover, with Pakistan repeatedly asking the interim government in the neighbouring country to ensure that its soil isn't used for terrorism. But the Taliban-led government has not been able to live up to the expectations.
The activities of militants have been mainly focused in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, with the former accounting for 31% of the attacks in the last year and the latter 67%, according to stats provided by Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.
In its annual report, the Center for Research and Security Studies (CRSS) said that Pakistan saw as many as 376 terror attacks in the last year. A majority of these attacks were claimed by banned terror outfits such as TTP, Daesh, and the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA).

I thought it was ur no 1 ISI and army who won it.
Possibly but I doubt it.If Pakistan had backed the yanks during Afghan invasion and sent troops to Afghanistan to fight alongside them then Pakistan would have been treated like Japan post WW2 and right now you would have been well on your way to 1st world status.
But ofcourse you are masters of your demise and the eternal sacrificial lamb because of muh martial race, muh Taliban, muh Muslim brothers. You have no money, India is the new darling and the Afghans are attacking you and nobody gives a shit
Possibly but I doubt it.
Pakistani boots on the ground would have made even stronger propaganda for Al-Q terrorists who were using the air corridor excuse to recruit terrorists. So the insurgency definitely would have been much worse than it already was.
And Pakistani officials have asked for relationships where the US invests large amounts in the civillian development sector similar to Japan, but US outright said no...
A powerful Pakistan has very different implications than a powerful Japan.
Yeah I agree with the state making constant mistakes, but I think your idea of NATO/US fully supporting us like they did Japan is not possible.People are very one track minded. They think they can do whatever and the other side will think nothing of it.
Pakistan has made plenty of mistakes. It has constantly flirted with extremism. The entire 90s was Pakistan encouraging the Taliban whilst they were in bed with OBL who attacked the twin towers with the car park bombing in 94 and kenyan embassy. How do you think this reflected on Pakistan? The relationship soured.
Pakistan could have addressed this with joining NATO in the attack and there would have been a reset in ties. Pakistan has never behaved with consistency, its history is littered with these bizarre episodes.
Does he reallyHe also wants to bring back 40 k ttp members and settle them in kpk
