IT'S ABOUT PAKISTAN, NOT AFGHANISTAN
What is the USA Thinking?
Paranoia, Propaganda, and Poor Intelligence is Leading to Disaster
By Brigadier General Asif Haroon Raja (ret), for Veterans Today and Opinion Maker
USA, India, Israel and Britain are suffering from paranoia. Some US leaders are strongly purporting that Al-Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden, admitted by Secretary of State Gates to have been unheard from for many years, theoretically based in FATA region of Pakistan, is contemplating another 9/11 like attack. India is also thinking on same lines. It fears another 26/11 like attack by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) singly or aided by Al-Qaeda using Pakistan soil.
Israel fears that Pakistan will supply nukes to its neighbors. The UK feels that most acts of terror in Britain emanate from Pakistan. Their fears are based entirely on conjectures and flights of imagination with ulterior motives against Pakistan, hundreds of thousands of whose former residents now live in the UK as many of the most productive members of their society.
