Then DON'T FIGHT IN A CONVENTIONAL WAY.Any conflict conventional conflict with Afghanistan will be a meat grinder besides they are well armed now they have drones and other things and in conflict it will open shop meaning stage claims will always enter a conflict financing one or the other side and all of sudden we will find ourselves in a meatgrinder hell
Yar he is bazurg man, but with all respect to his age he is mental, he has grown more senile with age. Banda apney safed dari ka lihaz kar latey hain. Has he so quickly forgotten the beating he got by Islamia College student body? When he was made a hostage and the CPO had to beg the student body to release him in return for not taking action against them?Zaid Hamid: This is an Indian-Israeli conspiracy to make Muslims fight
It partly collapsed because of that. Partly.The Soviet union collapsed because of that conflict it drained money and wealth they used everything there outside of nuclear bombs
Then DON'T FIGHT IN A CONVENTIONAL WAY.
Don't tell me that Pakistan can't train and equip a few thousand men for guerilla warfare at the borders of Afghanistan. Or drone hit Taliban.
I beg to differ here.
Partitioning Afghanistan is NOT IN PAKISTANS INTEREST. Pakistan does not need or require Pashtun territory currently part of Afghanistan. Pakistan itself is already over populated with 230+ million people. Taking on Pashtun areas would easily bring in 25+ million and over burden the broken system as it is at the moment.
Pakistan doesnt have the capacity to deal with its population as it is so in no way will we be able to take on Pashtun territory.
Pakistan's Primary Interest in Afghanistna would be the following
- Allowing women to go to school and participate in public life
- Crack down on anti Pakistan TTP and BLA terrorist
- Cooperate with Pakistan in counter insurgency operations. Taliban would provide ground troops and Pakistan would provide Drone/air force
- Access to Afghanistans natural resources such as coal/ rare metals/ copper/ iron ore/ and even Uranium which is used in our nuclear reactors.
- Pipeline to Turkmenistan that is built + secure
- Access to trade routes to central asia where Pakistan will become influential. Our of all the STANS pakistan alone contributes 60-70% or population and GDP
All of these will require a stable, secure, and terrorist free Afghanistan.
You really need to stop lecturing people, everyone has an entitlement to their opinion on a public forum. Some of us here have actually worked in Afghanistan and know that region better than you think. But please continue to pontificate.Listen there is no such thing as limited you don't understand this region or people.
Well,what do you propose then? Appeasement?It is like trying to raise a ghost army inside Greece when the Greek authorities have consolidated their authority.
Listen there is no such thing as limited you don't understand this region or people. you either fight or not. Mostly it is to the last man. The narrative of ceasefire will be lost somewhere early and one must be able to avoid miscalculations before getting trapped.. Example look at Ukraine Ceasefire narrative is gone and if Ukraine was to liberate they may attempt to advance into russia they are already in Belgorod
