Pakistan

Jeg så på TV at Pakistan har mange talibanskoler. Her "utdannes" islamister i tusentall og en av terroristene fra London kom fra denne skolen.

Følgende forslag:

1. London krever av den pakistanske regjering at disse stenges med makt innen en uke

2. Når dette ikke skjer, sendes bombefly fra London som bomber skolene

Burde det ikke være så enkelt…?

For de venstreintellektuelle samt politikerne på venstresiden er dette
grovt forenklende, unyansert, og helt uakseptabelt. Spør f.eks Jagland om dette og se svaret. Eller en gjennomsnitts Dagbladjournalist.
Når venstresiden påstår at man må være "nyanserte" er dette kun et
skalkeskjul for at man ønsker å være apologister for totalitære regimer
eller bevegelser.
Da leter man med lys og lykte for å finne positive ting å si om dævelskapen.

Pakistan burde ha stengt disse skolene på eget initiativ for lenge siden, så hvis du fjerner punkt 1 er jeg enig.

Med punkt 1 mener jeg kun handlingen der UK utformer sitt ultimatum inkl. konsekvens dersom dette ikke følges opp. Pkt 1 vil aldri bli gjennomført av Pakistans regjering, men de må likevel få en reell sjanse.

Det merkelige er:
Dersom det hadde dreid seg om noen atombombefabrikker, hadde det iallfall for mange vært forståelig at umiddelbar bombing er det eneste riktige.

Når det dreier seg om ideologiske-religiøse skoler som programmerer mennesker til å utføre sin ondskap forstår man ikke at konklusjonen burde være helt lik.

Dette er fortvilende.
No sacrifice. No conflict.

Pakistan Continuing Support of the Taliban

Innlegg Panther 27 Jul 2010, 16:15

http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/war-peace/islamic-jihad/6046-Pakistan-Continuing-Support-the-Taliban.html

26 July 2010 Robert Spencer

Pakistani military intelligence is not only aiding the Taliban in Afghanistan, but is actually represented in the Taliban’s governing apparatus.


What has changed since then? Only the regimes in both Islamabad and Washington, but neither the double game nor the false assumptions that continue to allow it to be played.
One fundamental assumption that all too many Pakistani officials hold is that when something goes wrong with society, it is because the people have faltered in their fidelity to Islam and only renewed religious fervor can solve the problem and restore prosperity to the nation and health to the society. This assumption militates against the idea that any amount of American aid will significantly alter the situation in Pakistan, or lessen popular support for the Islamic jihad of the Taliban and allied groups. For the Americans will always be infidels, no matter how much money they lavish upon the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.


When he traveled in Pakistan, the renowned writer V.S. Naipaul discovered that “failure led back again and again to the assertion of the faith.” He quotes an article in the Pakistan Times by A.H. Kardar, “the former cricket captain of Pakistan, and an Oxford man.” Says Kardar of modern Pakistan: “Clearly, the choice is between materialism and its inseparable nationally divisive political manifestoes, and the Word of God.” A new severity invariably follows.

The Express Tribune, August 19, 2010: ABOARD THE USS PELELIU: While a number of countries widely regarded as being close to Pakistan are trudging their way towards lending a helping hand to tens of millions of Pakistanis affected by the devastating floods, the one country that is looked at with most suspicion, if not outright hatred, continues to spearhead the relief effort. The United States on Wednesday upped its assistance for Pakistan’s flood affectees from $76 million to $90 million – a figure that is by far the largest on the donors list. In fact, the figure is as much as the next three donors on the list combined. When asked to comment on the irony of helping people many of whom have a less than compassionate view of the US, Rear Admiral Sinclair M. Harris, the commander of the relief operation, said that the mission is not focused on that aspect, or that of image building. “It’s just about helping the people at the moment”, he said, adding, “it is a matter of humanity – nothing else” - With ‘enemies’ like these, who needs friends?

Department of Defense, August 27, 2010: Defense Department officials announced today the deployment of 18 additional helicopters to Pakistan as part of the expanding U.S. contribution to flood-relief efforts. The aircraft include 10 CH-47 Chinook and eight UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters from the 1st Battalion, 52nd Aviation Regiment, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade. The unit will operate alongside the Pakistani military throughout flood-affected areas. These helicopters are expected to begin flood-relief efforts in Pakistan in mid-September. This is the latest in a series of deployments in response to Pakistan’s urgent request for flood-relief assistance. About 15 U.S. military helicopters and three C-130 Hercules aircraft already supporting flood-relief efforts in Pakistan have transported more than 2 million pounds of humanitarian assistance supplies and rescued more than 7,000 people. Today, helicopters transported more than 750 people and delivered more than 160,000 pounds of food and supplies. C-130s delivered 6,000 pounds of food and supplies. Since the floods began July 29, the United States has provided $150 million to support immediate relief efforts and has allocated an additional $50 million to assist with re-establishment of communities impacted by the floods, according to Defense Department reports - More U.S. Helicopters to Deploy for Pakistan Relief

Daily Times, September 7, 2010: The Taliban bombed another government girls’ high school in the Landi Arbab area of Peshawar on Monday, police and local residents said.

Babak said that the floods had damaged around 900 schools in the province out of which 226 had been completely destroyed. The provincial education minister said that around 1,000 schools had been destroyed due to terrorist attacks - Taliban bomb girls’ school near Peshawar

Foreign Policy, September 29, 2010: The U.S. government is working furiously to counter a plot to attack several European public targets, CIA chief Leon Panetta told the head of Pakistan's intelligence community Wednesday. The plot, to attack multiple public targets in several European capitals, was slated to occur in late November, according to Panetta. After capturing one of the prospective attackers en route from Pakistan's FATA region, the U.S. government authorized the CIA to step up drone strikes inside Pakistan to unprecedented levels while working with various allied governments to kill or capture the two to three dozen militants reportedly preparing for the operation. The CIA is asking Pakistan to allow expanded permissions to increase the intensity of drone strikes inside Pakistan -- which are already at record levels - CIA chief Leon Panetta briefs Pakistan intelligence chief on major attack

Yahoo! News, October 5, 2010: Pakistan appears to have stepped up construction of a new atomic reactor that could help the country produce easier-to-deliver nuclear weapons, a US research institute said Tuesday. Pakistan's nuclear arsenal is a highly sensitive topic for the United States as it tries to improve relations with its frontline partner in the campaign against Islamic extremism. The Institute for Science and International Security, a private US group which is critical of nuclear weapons, said it observed progress at Pakistan's tightly guarded Khushab site which is key to plutonium production. In a September satellite image of the site in Punjab province, the institute said it observed a completed row of mechanical draft cooling towers at a third reactor, where construction began in 2006. It marks a faster pace than for the second reactor, where such towers appeared after six years of construction, it said. "Based on what I see in the image, it wouldn't surprise me if they started it up in 2011," said Paul Brannan, a senior analyst at the institute - Pakistan steps up nuclear construction

TheNews, October 13, 2010: President Asif Ali Zardari seriously believes that the US was “arranging” the (suicide) attacks by Pakistani Taliban inside Pakistan, a claim he made before Zalmay Khalilzad, the former US envoy to Afghanistan, who thought it was ‘madness’. The account of this claim by Zardari has been elaborately reproduced by Bob Woodward, on Page 116 of his famous bookObama’s Wars. The revelation could throw a lot of light on the complex relations between the Zardari-led PPP government which US officials believe is incompetent and the disillusioned US diplomats. Zardari received this information from President Karzai and passed it on to Khalilzad which also reveals how important the Pakistani president thinks Karzai’s views are, though the Americans consider him a liability - Zardari says US behind Taliban attacks in Pakistan

The Washington Times, January 16, 2011: Extensive CIA-operated Predator drone strikes against remote hide-outs of al Qaeda, the Taliban and other groups in Pakistan are forcing many insurgents out of Waziristan to other areas. Sources in the North Waziristan tribal region, the area where most of the drone strikes occurred in 2010, said the pervasive attacks have been nonstop and appear to be increasing - Air strikes by drones effective in Waziristan

Fox News, January 31, 2011: Pakistan has doubled its nuclear weapons stockpile over the past several years, increasing its arsenal to more than 100 deployed weapons, according to a published report. As a result, Pakistan has now edged ahead of India, its nuclear-armed rival, The Washington Post reported late Sunday, citing non-government analysts. India is estimated to have 60 to 100 weapons. Only four years ago the Pakistani nuclear arsenal was estimated at 30 to 60 weapons. "They have been expanding pretty rapidly," the report quoted David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, as saying - Report: Pakistan Doubles Nuclear Arsenal

The Jamestown Foundation, February 4, 2011: Karachi, Pakistan’s most populous city and its commercial capital, is yet again in the throes of violence. With Karachi generating 68% of the government’s revenue and 25% of the country’s gross domestic product, the implications for Pakistan are serious. The first three weeks of 2011 saw some 150 deaths, including the killing of Pashtun journalist Wali Khan Babar. This violence assumed more alarming proportions amidst reports that the Quetta Shura of the Afghan Taliban has now shifted to Karachi and Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Omar was treated for heart problems in a Karachi Hospital - Fresh Violence Threatens to Make Karachi the New Mogadishu
