Submitted by Ali Khan (United Kingdom), Jul 31, 2006 at 14:46

W.R.T to Akbars Ali response to the comments that every body is in pakistan army is al qayeda and there is not even 10 senior officers ....

Sir please get your stats right and then come and talk about stuff. Merely talking about things that you dont even know about is not true. Gen Musharraf, who is he who brought him in power and who has supported him, Politicans who were actually all around him; not al qayda.... you dont even know Pakistan army and you are takling about them .... have you even got idea who started the war... i dont even think that your points are good enough to be responded but just FOR THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO BELIEVE YOUR WORDS WITHOUT KNOWING TRUTH.

In pakistan there is nothing such as taliban or alnqayeda... these two words which are also used by the media is for those people who are fighting in afghanistan and have either crossed the border in the FATA area of Pakistan where Pakistan army is fighting them ; they have managed to enter 1 tribal area out of 7 where also Pakistan army is having the support and they are being defeated.

Even the new setup of Tribal Jirga by the OLD governor LT. Gen Iftikhar Hussain Shah and NEW LT Gen Orakzai have had are talking to them (negotiations) which are gonna ask them to lay their arms and if want to live in pakistan they need to surrender themselves to the authorities which not many but some has agreed to and have done so. But there is carrot and the stick.. both are needed in politics...

Now about Bolochistan.... a province there are more than 500 different "MIRS" (Leaders) or tribes heads out of which only 5 of Bugti area are making trouble financed by if you believe it or not by America and India to raise problems for the govt mainly for 3 main reasons.

1. to stop the development going on ; the worlds fastest moving stock market and excellent gdp and gnp growths in every field as it is not in there intrest.

2. to stop pakistan iran pipe line in which US in not intrested at all for the reason of Pakistan more energy

Submitting....
