2. fallen for what was essentially a virtual war. Massive propaganda pushed though seemingly valid #OSINT accounts that caused a massive rout. I knew the rout was coming, but didn't spot the Pak control of the assault until late in the game. Now that the Paks are facing
3. a committed, capable force in Panjshir the reality of the ground war is starting to impair the move to annex Afghanistan that is the de facto result of the Pak invasion. The reports of the Kabul airport being open are not credible. The photos are taken to obscure the location

#Kuwait's young foreign minister @anmas71 is back in #Pakistan for the first time in 16 yrs (I met him back then). This interesting relationship spans military+strategic issues (#Afghanistan #Iran #Iraq #oil), & a forgotten attempt to save a Pakistani premier from execution. /1
#Kuwait helped #Pakistan withstand international sanctions after the 1998 nuclear tests (with KSA+UAE); was one of top 5 aid givers (with #SaudiArabia #UAE #US #EU) after #Kashmir earthquake 2005. And remains a key oil supplier (along with #KSA). /2…

We’re quite tired of hearing #PTM being called an “organic human rights movement,” because there is neither anything organic or human rights related to this movement.
.@PashtunTM_Offi is a manufactured movement to achieve specific objectives.

1) Remove the military from #FATA so the #TTP & other #terror groups can return to hold the area hostage again.
2) To create a false impression that #Pashtuns are being victimized by the #PakArmy.

The only people being harassed are those who are not #Pakistani and living illegally within our borders.

A detailed thread on Pakistan's debt and Foreign exchange reserves. #NayaPakistan is on the way becoming #NayaPaisaPakistan
In August 2018, foreign exchange reserves with the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) stood at $10bn. Pak borrowed $3bn from SaudiArabia and $2bn from UAE. As of March 8, 2019, foreign exchange reserves with the SBP stood at $8bn. Still they are in talks with IMF to get $12bn more.

The first Airstrike by US against "terrorists" in Afghanistan after 9/11 began on 7 Oct 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, US is now talking to "Taliban" for a "deal". This is how effective airstrikes are against "terrorists". 1/n
WRT India's airstrike on "terrorist camps" in Pakistan, how degrading would that be to the terror networks in reality? Very little. You can't destroy much that cannot be replaced quickly. Would that work as a deterrent? No. 2/n
India's airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan is more for optics and electoral posturing by Modi-Doval & company. Like the last "surgical Strike" could not prevent more terror attacks on India, neither would this. 3/n
