The New Year saw Pak-US bilateral relations reach an all-time low, when in the crazy early morning hours, Trump in a policy tweet accused Islamabad of “fib and craft” while “giving safe havens to terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan”
After the tweet Pakistan’s civil and military leadership, chaired by Prime Minister Shahid KhaqanAbbasi, expressed their disappointment over US President Trump’s anti-Pakistan statement and decided not to take measures in a hurry in reply to US allegations.
US shouldn’t underestimate the sacrifices of Pakistan, because it is fighting their war and lost so many lives in this war on terrorism – civil and military. Pakistan is the one that endured the US mistakes like Salala incident, Raymond Davis incident, and so many others, and still Trump refutes the decades of sacrifices made by this nation.
A day after some unwilling and waggish criticism from President Donald trump, Pakistan welcomed the staunch support it received from its strongest ally China, which appreciated its efforts for its “contribution against terrorism” which should be acknowledged by the international community. Pakistan has received assurances of support from two regional powers (China and Russia) after a humiliating tweet by the US president. As it’s said, your enemy’s enemy is your friend, Pakistan received assurances from Russia that Pakistan should not consider itself “isolated”.
US used Pakistan for their self-interests, because for them this is what was best for the business. And for those who not know Trump: he does everything which is best for the business.He won the election against a lady who had years of experience in politics, but at the end somehow lost out to a man who just joined politics for business.
The US president chose to forget his own words when in a tweet in October he had tweeted, “starting to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan and its leaders”.
If Pakistan just cuts off their NATO supply, like we did in 2011, US will be on their knees like they were in 2011. So don’t forget if Pakistan shows its cards,it will not be rational for the US, because Pakistan have the trump card and US is dependent on Pakistan.
Before targeting Pakistan,Trump should actually think what the US has done in Iraq and Afghanistan for the past two decades.
Trump in his tweet said that the US pays Pakistan billions of dollars for nothing.MrPresident, it was Pakistan that provided you the route for your supplies, provided you bases.It was Pakistan that packed the Guantanamo Bay for you and also, it was Pakistan which set a Canadian couple free from Afghanistan which you have been trying – and failing – to control since the past two decades.That couple was abducted in Afghanistan six years ago and were kept in prison for six years and you did nothing. USA lost uncountable soldiers in this no reason war – thousands of soldiers become psychological patients, with the US spending trillions of dollars and still blaming others.
Pakistan is suffering from terrorism because of the US,and has lost so many innocents lives. It’s Pakistan that sacrificed the most in fighting the international terrorism and Pakistan’s role in the war against terrorism didn’t depend on US aid but on “national interests and principles”.
Now we’ll have to see how both countries play their diplomatic cards and what role other superpowers play in this interesting situation because: ‘real eyes realize real lies’.
