Who Will Target Taliban

E-mail Print PDF

Who will target Taliban – the question sounds like the eternal problem that defies solution; who will bell the cat? In case of cat, the animal was visible but too powerful for hordes of mice for whom it was a life-threatening entity. The Taliban Islamist terrorists are invisible many a time and yet are a life threatening entity to the civilised human beings. The Taliban find safe shelters in the Muslim habitats. Whenever chased by a superior force, the Taliban terrorists melt into the local Muslim population and are unseen and unheard thereafter.

 

Americans at wits end

 

Indeed it would be in the specific interest of Americans and the larger interest of the civilised world to eliminate the Taliban Islamist terrorists. The Taliban have made their presence felt in violent ways both in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is in the interest of both the countries and the NATO to be chasing them day and night and not let them have even one wink of siesta, leave alone sleep. However, the NATO (read American Army) has not had an iota of success in this regard so far. On the contrary, the Taliban terrorists have succeeded in inflicting massive casualties on a better armed and better trained western force. The returning body bags made the war on terror in Afghanistan so unpopular in the United States that bringing it to an end became an emotive election issue. Even the present incumbent in the Oval office had promised to the electorate that he would” bring the boys home” sooner than later. Accordingly, President Barack Obama had fixed July 2011 as the likely date of commencement of pull out of the US forces from the war-torn Afghanistan. But that is not likely to be as the world would see it as another defeat of the US arms abroad. Thereafter, America thought of Pakistan to come to its rescue and militarily cover the withdrawal of the NATO forces without letting it be seen as a victory of the Taliban terrorists. Of course, one has to pay for obtaining services of agencies and countries and Pakistan received billions of US dollars for its services rendered partly so far.

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan has a massive advantage in the present AFPAK scenario. It is a Muslim country that shows its green Islamic flag at every corner. Islam was the foundation of its coming into existence. Pakistan was in the forefront in fighting against the occupation of Afghanistan by the infidel regime of USSR. It received a massive monetary and military aid from America that it deployed on its eastern borders with India. Pakistan also gave birth to militant Islamic student organisation called the Taliban to fight against the Russians. When the infidel Russians quit the country as their continued presence became militarily untenable, the Taliban stepped into the vacuum under the guidance of Pakistan officers. However, the mishap of 9/11 in America changed the situation and the advent of US forces made the Taliban and their mentor Al Qaida and Pakistan beat a retreat. The local support to the Taliban changed the military situation again and now Pakistan made its presence felt as a mediator between the NATO and the Taliban.

Who runs Pakistan

America, Army and Allah run Pakistan and their influence is felt in that order. However, the American influence and that of Allah is on the decline. The Army of Pakistan is on ascendancy and its word is law. With a view to solving the vexatious problem in the AFPAK region, Americans chose to court the Pakistan Army with a proviso that the Army targets Taliban and destroys them. As is well known, the Taliban and the Pakistan Army are twin brothers. General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, the present Army Chief is well aware of the emotive value of the Taliban and cannot think of severing relations with them; not even in the distant dream.

General Kayani pleaded with the American diplomats for more time and promised to take action as and when additional troops were made available for operations against the Taliban. However, it was not a true statement of facts. General Kayani is on record to say that when the Pakistan Army goes to war against India, it is the Taliban that would protect the flanks of the army. No wonder, the bulk of the Pakistan army stands deployed against India on Pakistan’s eastern borders as the Pakistan strategists still see India as a bigger threat than Terrorism. Americans see the situation and watch helplessly. No amount of American money power or persuasion has moved General Kayani away from his anti-India stand.

Pakistan strategists still see Americans as pro-India, notwithstanding the fact that Pakistan got heavy weapons from them as against peanuts that India received. There is a grave danger of the Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal falling into the Al Qaida and Taliban hands. The rulers in Islamabad fear that America is out to denuclearise Pakistan and make it defenceless against India. The Pakistan army under its anti-India Chief, General Kayani will go all out to prevent that situation from materialising. Of all the Army Chiefs of Pakistan, General Kayani is the most pronounced anti-India guy so far. No wonder, Pakistan looks up to China more now as its defender and protector. China too would like the American influence in Pakistan diminish day by day and, therefore, would help Pakistan retain its nuclear teeth. Pakistan is a major beneficiary of American largesse to keep the Taliban at bay and also of the Chinese friendly support to prevent it from becoming a paper tiger without nuclear teeth.

Why should Pakistan track Taliban and destroy it when it is an all powerful Islamic nation because of emergence of Islamic terror personified in Al Qaida and Taliban? The Taliban is a protégé of Pakistan and Pakistan would never like to track and terminate it, come what may.

What is the way out

Americans have found themselves in a bind and do not know what to do. General Kayani is so anti-India that he would not do anything that makes India an emerging super-power. Kayani is not prepared to raise even a little finger if the end result is weakening of the Taliban. Well, a way out may be found by weakening General Kayani himself and replacing him by a more amenable and pro-American Army Chief of Pakistan. Indeed it is not impossible. Money makes the mare go and Americans have a lot of money.

Removal of General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani from his present all-powerful post of Army Chief will kill two birds with one stone. The Taliban will not only be targeted but also tamed. Further, US Department of State would be unfettered in pursuing its policy of Friendship with India to prevent a resurgence of Taliban type terror outfit and thus keep the American interests out of harm’s way.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

History - Infidels' Resistance

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
