Every one of the wars you mention was started by Pakistan

  • 1948, by Pakistan's sending in Pushtun tribesmen to takeover (and demographically modify) Kashmir--prevented due to the tribesmen halting to loot and plunder Baramula for three days
  • 1965 by Ayub Khan's "conqueror-wannabe" mentality--he was basically repulsed
  • 1971 by Yahya Khan's stupidity in launching a civil war against the Bengalis who had won an election, and then making it UNCIVIL by a pathetic version of a pre-emptive airstrike on India--basically preponing the clobbering the Bengalis would have given you
  • 1999 entirely planned by Musharraf (a mohajir)
  • 2002 due to Musharraf's refusal to accept responsibility for your militants attacking Parliament House
Your country actually HAD the ability to control its destiny in 1950's when PM's such as Suhrawardy (and non-pols such as Bhashani) urged "we've got our nation now, let's move on, India is a secondary concern" shortenable to a "love Pakistan" policy, but you CHOSE a "hate India at all times" policy and THREW THIS ABILITY AWAY--which you compounded by throwing away your second chance (1970 election)!

FYI, any idea that India would want to "reabsorb" Pakistan was binned in 1972, when India withdrew UNILATERALLY from captured Shakargarh and Nagar Parkar salients--something you still cannot grasp!
