Pak Army's dual war on terror policy may lead to break down of ties with US: Editorial

Islamabad, Sat, 21 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 21 (ANI): Pakistan military establishment's history of following a dual policy on the war on terror may lead to a complete break down of ties with the US 'sooner or later', a Daily Times editorial has said.


The history of Pakistan shows that the military establishment sets the foreign policy of the country.


It nurtured a retreating Taliban as its proxies across the Durand Line to have control in Afghanistan and to keep India out of the region. In the aftermath of 9/11, being a US ally in the war on terror, the military had to take action against its proxies, but kept its policy of strategic depth intact, and played a double game with the US, ignoring the potential threat that the Taliban would pose to Pakistan if they succeed in re-imposing their government in Kabul post-2014.


Given this history, the editorial further says that not much should be expected from Pakistan on this issue.


They might even strengthen their counterparts living in Pakistan to spread their hold and ideology across the region. That situation would hurt both countries and the region would suffer even more, it added. (ANI)
