Before @realDonaldTrump took office as #POTUS, @commandeleven prepared a briefing paper to help him understand #Pakistan's significance in the #US #WaronTerror. Maybe he should give it a look...…
This is what LTG #TariqKhan had to say about #US General #Nicholson... Image
And what LTG #TariqKhan had to say about the #US #strategy in #Afghanistan. Image

Why must @ImranKhanPTI disgrace #Pakistan with his confused history?

During the war with the #Soviets, there was no #alQaeda or #Taliban. There was only #Mujahideen.

After the Soviet withdrawal & civil war, the Taliban emerged. There is no mujahideen in #Afghanistan today.
A major part of #Pakistan’s #PR problem is confused narratives driving confused perceptions.

We didn’t train the #Mujahideen alone. We had help from the #US, @CIA & #SaudiArabia.

Why does the PM forget this & place on the responsibility on Pakistan alone?
What is #Pashtun nationalism’s role in the war on terror?

All the insurgents that attacked #Pakistan post-#LalMasjid were ideological driven. Nothing to do with ethnic or linguistic roots.

It was the creation of the #TTP which kicked off mass #terror attacks in Pakistan.

This is a significant foreign policy mistake by the #US & @SecPompeo

Having a defense collaboration agreement already in place had already made regional players uncomfortable, the sharing of intelligence data with #India is a recipe for disaster in the region.
The #US alignment with the #Modi government clearly shows that they are not interested in human rights or justice with #India

Rather, the US comprehensive support with embolden @narendramodi to go further than previously imagined.
What makes this even more significant is the coming withdrawal from #Afghanistan, where the #US will want to secure their minor gains. #Indian involvement will raise the stakes for failure for #US foreign & military policy.

After #COAS #Bajwa again talking about #5GW and the threat #Pakistan faces, the #PTI government has still been unable to restrict the access or approach of any of these groups.

#Warfare, especially in today’s connected, camera friendly world, is much easier to wage.
Nations can steal elections with the right strategy. They can change narratives with hostile actions. They can create hate and distrust.

We have all of these happening in today’s #Pakistan.

And the govt is sleeping...
From #PTM/#TTP to baseless rumors mongering, #Pakistan has become a battleground that is being lost due to no one bothering to understand the problem and its solutions.

That’s the distrust they showed in us. No one trusts the other when it comes to defining the problem.

It's very interesting how #India frames their defeats.

Indian Army sends unarmed soldiers - gets beaten to a pulp

@narendramodi travels close to #LAC & visits conference rooms with beds, pretending to be a hospital.

#China defines new LAC & India claims "victory" for itself.
This is much like the #Balakot misadventure, where the #IAF supposedly hit a group of 300 militants.

Only to find broken trees & dead birds in target space.

#IAF pilot got to enjoy the most expensive cup of tea in Indian history.
Or shall we discuss the "surgical strike" that wasn't surgical or a strike.

India's military at it best.

As #India continues attempts to ban foreign voices & analysis, wouldn’t you question the thinkers within that country as to how free & honest their own thinking is?

#StopSuspendingPakistanis because you can’t counter our voices, opinions or understanding! Image
The #Indians claim that they are better at #InfoWar than any other country, yet they are unable to counter true statements without their rhetoric or hysteria.

Go back & check old tweets, you’ll find the bulk of educated, civilized #Indians unable to speak without hate.
#InfoWars are won with facts & analysis. #India can’t win a war because they manufacture facts favorable to them, whether true on ground or not.

“300 #terrorists dead in #Balakot,” actually, 2 trees.

It always disturbs us when #liberals bash our #PakArmy citing foreign models of military service.

Militaries are well-versed in strategic challenges & opportunities that their nations face. They don’t make the decisions, but they advise all quarters.

Intelligence briefings.
Militaries don’t run businesses abroad. They are developed counties. #Pakistan is not.

That’s why defense contractors hire retired military to run their operations, quality assurance & other aspects, based on their experience in the battlefield.
Militaries don’t run governments either. That would be because truly democratic states don’t run to the military HQ to beg the overthrow the government.

In #Pakistan, #GHQ is frequented more by opposition politicians than Majors & Colonels.
