    Pakistan Urges US to Refrain From Attacking Iran
    [​IMG]
    The situation in the region escalated last week after acting US Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan ordered the deployment of the USS Arlington, a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, and additional MIM-104 Patriot missile defence systems to the US Central Command (CENTCOM) region.

    Pakistani authorities said on Sunday that they had notified the United States that Pakistan was against any attack on Iran, as such an act would be "destructive for the regional peace".

    A senior official in the Pakistani Foreign Ministry told The Nation outlet that "the US claims Iran is intensifying tension".

    At the same time, according to another official, Pakistan has contacted Iran as well, urging it to restraint to ensure peace.

    Tensions between Iran and the US reached a new level after Washington enlisted the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organisation earlier this year, with Iran doing the same to the US Central Command.

    Later on, US National Security Adviser John Bolton announced that the US was deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force near Iran in a move to send "a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on US interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force".

    Responding to the claims, Tehran said that it posed no threat to the US, adding that Washington's allegations were based on "fake intelligence". According to Iran's Supreme National Security Council spokesman Keivan Khosravi, Bolton's statement was "a clumsy use of an out-of-date event for psychological warfare".

    No more wars! Freaking 2 decades of Pakistan's growth and development was lost because USA got stupid in Afghanistan. Pakistan cannot afford another insane decision by anyone.

    Stop the offender with force.

    Pakistan Leaders know once Iran is destroyed, It will be replaced with a Pro US, Pro Israel Iran that will be anti Russia, Anti China and Anti Pakistan.
    The Effects will be:
    -Russia and China Lose another ally in the mideast.
    -China loses its belt and road route through Iran
    -Iran will only sell its oil and gas in US dollars, hence russia and china will not be able to break the US dollar dominance
    -US gains a new route into afghanistan through Iran, Pakistan will no longer be needed, they will be finally able to Sanction Pakistan
    -Iranian Gas Pipeline will finally be built towards Europe, ending Russian energy dominance over europe, lowering Russia revenues hence weakening China strongest ally.
    -Relationship between new pro US/Israel Iran and Pro US India will go towards alliance.
    -Pakistan will be surrounded by 3 sides.


    Iran isnt perfect, but a US puppet Iran will have disastrous Geopolitical consequences for China,Russia,Pakistan
    And a positive impact for India US alliance against China and Pakistan

    But it poses direct threats to US national interests in the region, clearly, if not mainland USA.

    Perfect analysis , brilliant , people think that because Iran causes minor issues for us ( on a relative scale ) we should support getting rid of it , but care not about the aftermath, at best this situation war or not can be our way of firm handedly winning over Iran from Indian influence , however with a strong hand

    The worst case is a joint attack on Pakistan by US and Indian forces, it doesn't take much to switch focus. They could also try and drag Pakistan into the conflict by imposing sanctions to bring Pakistan to her knees or aid the insurgents in Baluchistan by supplying money and weapons. Pakistan must reinforce Gwadar and make it the HQ for this Iranian conflict to control the outcome for our best interest. If Iran does collapse Pakistan should consider the option of taking over Chahabar from the Indians.

    Good, though i hate Mullah regime, but what comes after Mullahs would be worst. Pakistan should be more vocal in opposing any war. Why its only on sputnik tabloid instead of Al Jazeera, BBC, CNN like reputed propaganda agencies.

    False information; Pakistani FM have clearly mentioned that we will not pick sides in this potential war.

    Its talking about a Military threat,Not interests. Iran is not a military threat to US, Iran military budget is $20billion while the US military budget is over $600billion. And talking about interests, unless the country is a puppet, no country in the world 100% aligns with another countries interests. Even Europe who is an Ally of America, supports the Nuclear deal against US interests.

    Well, consider that the Saudis are petrified and begging USA to stop Iran, and it could become a direct military issue as well.
