Confirmed: TTP Using Indian/US Weapons

Briefing reporters about the progress of operation Rahe Rast, military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas yesterday revealed the extent of foreign support that the TTP terrorists are getting from Afghanistan. Large caches of weapons of US and INDIAN origin have been found as the security forces completely secure control of Mingora city, destroying various training centres of terrorists and killing important militant commanders, the military said.

The Americans have their excuses in order – Earlier this year it was revealed that over 200,000 US weapons – including assault rifles and grenade launchers – are ‘missing’ from the US army’s inventory in Afghanistan. The US army is unable to provide serial numbers for a large number of the missing weapons and no records have been maintained for the location or disposition for the rest.

The Pakistan Army, quite rightly has told the Americans to stop worrying about Pakistan’s nuclear weapons and start worrying about the weapons ‘lost’ in Afghanistan.

Coming to the issue of Indian made weapons found in Swat – India claims its consulates in Afghanistan only issue visas for Afghan tourists to India and runs scholarship programmes for Afghan students. The Indians also claim their presence in Afghanistan is limited to reconstruction and aid efforts.

The Main Result of the “War on Terror”

May 30, 2009

The Destabilization of Pakistan 

So far the principle result of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan following the events of 9-11 has been the destabilization of Pakistan. That breakdown is peaking with the events in what AP calls the “Swat town” of Mingora—actually a city of 375,000 from which all but 20,000 have fled as government forces moved in, strafing it with gunships. We’re talking urban guerrilla warfare, house-to-house fighting, not on the Afghan border but 50 miles away in the Swat Valley. We’re talking about Pakistani troops fighting to reclaim the nearby Malam Jabba ski resort from the Tehreek-e-Taliban, who since last year have been using it as a training center and logistics base. We’re talking about two million people fleeing the fighting in the valley and 160,000 in government refugee camps.

Our Young Heroes

May 30, 2009

Many brave men of the Pakistan army are falling in the line of duty. Some will be recognised, others will go into history as unsung heroes. Let’s not forget them and keep their spirit alive. This is the tale of a young officer, a lieutenant, with less than six months of service, who went beyond the call of duty. After receiving an SOS call from one of the patrols, which had come under ambush laid by the militants, the commanding officer ordered to immediately dispatch a party to beat back the militants and evacuate the casualties. The lieutenant volunteered himself for the task. He was not allowed as probably he was considered too young and inexperienced. The boy felt dejected but was overwhelmed with his commitment to the country.

When the party was leaving, he quietly sneaked into the vehicle, taking advantage of the darkness. When the party reached the ambush site and was dismounting, the captain leading the party noticed him. He asked him why he had come. The lieutenant replied: “Sir, I have attended anti-terrorist training and know how to tackle them. Now it’s time to use those skills”. Later the party successfully repulsed the militants. This officer got three bullet injuries and is now convalescing in a hospital — and looking forward to go into action again.
