Pak Military Exercise: For Pakistan India Is Real Threat, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan Just An Irritant

April 9, 2010

Sajjad Malik

Islamabad – Pakistan’s security establishment, unmoved by the threat from homegrown Islamic insurgents, is to launch a training exercise this week focused on the scenario of a possible showdown with traditional rival India.

The country’s powerful military is to launch exercise Azm-e-Nau (New Resolve) III to test the capacities of its men against a hypothetical Indian attack, and validate its security strategy.

The war game is the culmination of the new strategies discussed over a period of one and half years at various academic and operational levels, and will be the largest military exercise since 1989.

Director General Military Training (DGMT) Major General Muzzamil Hussain said the forthcoming exercise in the garrison city of Rawalpindi will “focus on India.”

The exercise coincides with renewed efforts against Islamic militants, who last year moved to within 160 kilometres of the capital Islamabad.

They have been since pushed back to mountainous hideouts along the Afghan border, from where they continue to launch attacks against the national armed forces.

Pakistan’s army, over half a billion strong, has been reluctant to move against the rebels, who have previously been groomed by the forces to fight as their proxies, first in Afghanistan and later in India.

Since 2001, the Pakistani army has lost over 2,000 soldiers in skirmishes against the Taliban in the inhospitable terrain along the border, where once Islamabad’s security officials would guide the militants into Afghanistan to fight the Russian occupiers.

The bad blood between army and militants has given hope to local security analysts and US defence policy makers that Pakistan’s army might re-write its security doctrine, replacing India with the Taliban as chief security threat.

The US needs Pakistan’s commitment to fight a focussed war against the Taliban to succeed in Afghanistan and it has been trying to increase Pakistan’s comfort level vis-a-vis India.

But the upcoming war games could put paid to such hopes, as Pakistan puts its military strategy against India through its paces from April 10 to May 13 close to the Indian border.

“The exercise is a concept validation stage of the operational thought process manifested in the form of tactical, operational and organizational aspects which would be validated and refined through the lessons learnt,” military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said.

The two countries have a history of enmity and have fought three major wars since gaining independence from Britain in August 1947. Two of the clashes were over the Himalayan region of Kashmir, which is considered a flash point between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

General Muzzamil justified the manoeuvres, saying India had carried out at least 12 exercises in the recent past to test its cold start doctrine, and that another Indian exercise is scheduled to coincide with Pakistan’s.

India’s new strategy of launching quick strikes across the border will be at the heart of its month-long exercise, known as Yodha Shakti, which is to begin mid-April on the Indian side of the border.

The rival manoeuvres will put soldiers from the two armies – which number a combined total nearly 2 million troops – virtually within shouting distance of each other, in a move likely to give the United States something of a headache.

Washington has worked hard in recent years to soothe tensions between nuclear powers India and Pakistan, in the hope that Islamabad might then divert more of its attention and resources to fighting the Taliban militants.

But Pakistan’s military high command does not appear to be convinced of India’s proclaimed good intentions, and seems to be more concerned by Indian military capabilities and apparent posturing.

“We make our preparation to counter any move by India,” said Abbas. “The intentions are immaterial as they can change over time, but not the potential which matters a lot for us.”

The Pakistani military’s unwavering focus on India indicates that the defence establishment does not consider its operations against the Taliban to be anything more than a momentary diversion in the wider defence scenario.

Monday’s coordinated attacks on a US consulate in Peshawar and a political party, which left 53 dead, were simply “security problems”, said Abbas, and did not warrant a wholesale rethinking of Pakistan’s long-term security strategy.

“We are aware of double jeopardy including trouble on western and eastern fronts but the current exercise is to deal with dangers from east, we have separate plans to counter problems at the west,” Muzzamil added.

Like his boss, army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani who authorized it, Muzzamil believes that the field exercise, involving 20,000 to 40,000 troops, will help to draw up a Pakistani response plan for incidents on the eastern border with India.

Muzzamil also said that internal problems made any nation more vulnerable to external aggressions. “We are training to counter any foreign move from the east at the time of our domestic security problems,” he said.

      = When Pakistan lets india to sit on the back raws on the internationl forums and tells her to keep her filthy mouth shutt, india have no choice but to follow the orders of Pakistan and does what was ordered to do.

      = When Pakistan wants Kahmeris to get visas on non indian passports to work and live in Great China, we see india is left only to beat her filthy and ugly face with her own filthy ugly hands and can’t do jack shit to Pakistan nor to China and Kashmeers travel with freedom across borders to Great China on passports that says “Islamic Republic of Jamu and Kashmer”.

      = When Pakistan wants india to over spend on bulk buying crap from Russia, india does exectly that and spends all her begging money that she made over the years from around the would by crying to the world that; indians are poor and hungery and homeless and naked, so plz give us your charity and begging monies and funny thing is that india spends all begging and the chirity monies on her third rate army secerat service RAW and rest spends on buying “ploppers and pils of crap junk” from Russia and now from America. LOLOL

      = When Pakistan wants india to do something; india just complies with it and can’t do jack shit about it.

      HINDOZ SHOULD ECCEPT THEIR DEFEAT OF ALL TIMES IN THE HANDS OF PAKISTAN OF ALL TIMES AND LEARN TO LIVE IN AN ISOLATION AND LAND LOCKED RIALITIES!


  3. Seeing the fashion shows in karachi and peshawar and other related things it is must that pakistanis are to be wiped out if pakistan is to be saved.

    May the wrath of Almighty fall soon on you all.


    • yes InshaAllah …the wrath of Allah will be on u InshaAllah!


    • For you it may be ‘fashion shows’, in these critical times when we are facing internal and external enemies, it is serious to us. Had it not been for a strong and prepared Pakistani and brave Pakistani people, India would’ve attacked by now.


      • army*


      • Don’t give yourself undue importance. We’ve got better things to do than to attack a basket case like Pakistan. No… seriously, we’ve got lots of better things to do… I mean, even picking my nose would be better than attacking you lot. What’s the point? What will we gain by attacking you? Nothing. You guys are an open festering sewer on the face of the planet…. why should we dirty our hands and feet?


      • @Amused Yes.You have better things to do.
        For example nursing your wounds caused by stories of Gandhi’s perverted sex life with his grand nieces.


      • @Amused

        Yes you have better things to do.
        For example nursing your wounds on the stories of Gandhi of having sex with his grand nieces.


    • @ UN kafir kutty hindo ki ulad

      oye bahinchood dalay wrath will fall on you kufars napak paleeth scums of india. traitor get lost from here and go back to your bollychood rundi bazar.


      • @ amused
        yes u do have better things to do and starting with sorting out the maoists problem is I think a good idea. And not attacking Pakistan IS a better thing for u..:)


      • … aww… more insults and abuses. Another Pakistani showing his upbringing. Please don’t let any Indian here stop you from showing off your intellect


  4. @ Amused, i guess slums of mumbai’s are in Pakistan? Maybe its in pakistan that foot paths are sold. confusion confusion confusion.
    Allah has protected Pakistan and if Pakistan is going to be a means to spread Islam inshaAllah, it will be protected from foriegn back politicians and bureaucrats as snakes and he direct enemies of Pakistan.
    I guess the 65 war and 71 war, wasnt an attack by enemies but we dreamt it? How is it we forget history so easily?
    Even your women dont want to marry you guys!!!!


    • I would suggest you read proper history about 65 and 71. Try checking with the local Bangladeshi consulate why are they asking for an apology from Pakistan.

      As regards Pakistan spreading Islam – do whatever makes you happy… no one cares. But trust me, Allah has better things to do than to look after your basket case of a country !!

      But yes, if you really want to know about 65, start reading up about Grand Slam (and then tell me who caused the war)


      • @ Amused SALY JI,

        PAKS BASKET CASE? THAT’S A DEBATBALE MATTER.

        BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE; YOU INDIAN(HINDOZ)ARE SHIT LOAD OF TOKKRA ON JAMADAR’S HEAD, WHO CROWLS UP AND DOWN ON THE PAWMENTS AND THE FOOTPATHS COLLECTING SHIT PILES IN THE INDIAN CAPITAL BOMBI.

        INDIAN HINDOZ ENJOY BEING A TOKKRA OF SHIT PILES.


      • awww… another rambling Paki. How sweet…. a person with a complete lack of education trying to make an intelligent comment. How commendable…. please… do continue commenting


      • @Amused

        Please keep visiting PKKH.When you abstain,our hands start itching as WO TUMHEN JOOTAY MARNAY KAY AADI HO CHUKE HAIN.


  5. Isn’t it funny.My two comments against AMUSED INDIAN are waiting moderation?


  6. @PKKH,

    Would anybody at PKKH tell what is their policy on moderation?


  7. Well, let’s look at it objectively for once, if the real threat for Pakistan is from India or itself:

    1. In sheer casualty terms, more people have died in domestic conflicts and insurgencies than in all the wars with India put together.

    2. Despite being close neighbors, the trade between the two countries is negligible, hence any idea of economic terrorism can be put to rest.

    3. India-Pakistan border and the LOC have not seen any major conflict since the Kargil episode whereas there is daily bombing and drone attacks in the border regions with Afghanistan.

    4. Pakistan’s own strategy to partner with America in its war on terror has resulted in much more economic, human and material loss than all the wars with India put together.

    5. Pakistani politicians and army generals have amassed huge wealth at the cost of economic and human development for the last 60 years, much worse than any damage India may have done during this time.

    Come on guys, the reality is staring us in the face… How can we be so naive?


  8. @Reality bites – check out your own record and see what the world thinks about your bharat and shut up.

    Is india a biggest democracy? or a higgest terrorist and agressor in this region? The answer is very clear and loud that india is biggest agressor and terrorist state in our region. Why? because check out its record. Genocide of kashmiris, sikhs, nexalites, maoists, shoodars, kashatris, muslims, christians and all the lower casts. Attacking mosques speacially babri mosques, churches burning them including people in it and trains such as samjota train. Terrorism in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, China and pakistan and agression in afghanistan, pakistan and china although defeated by china. Conspiring in East pakistan to break pakistan. Creating dramas like bombay and parliament attacks to be used for propoganda to the west when all of them know the truth now that it is only hindu drama but they are also using it for their own interest to snub pakistan. There are so much more to write about the terrorist india. Currently their prime minister is on a visit to US for nuclear conference when they are given nuclear technology, rocket technolgy but their pm a stupid who is not talking about nuclear but bombay self staged drama and pakistan pakistan and pakistan. India is not only a terorist but a theif too who is stealing water of neighbours such as pakistan and bangladesh. India is the biggest terrorist on this earth who has dispute with every nation in this region and it never stops propoganda it can keep doing that but its days are InshaAllah are numbered and this evil filth will tatter into many pieces soon. Shame on this terrorist india and its supporters who can see the true evil face of it and still supporting it.


    • @Pakistani

      Wow, you must be so relaxed getting that off your chest… If you know all this and you think India is responsible for all Pakistan’s problems, what do you think should be done or is being done…?

      I am sure you know some inside information as you claim that India’s “days are InshaAllah numbered and this evil filth will tatter into many pieces soon”… Please do share your invaluable insights with us mere mortals…

        @ Reality Bites

        Why don’t you stop coming here with all your invalid knowledge. I dont mean to say that we do not have any problems. But it will make better sense if you attend to loads of your own problems. Leave our for us. Bastards rule here who have raped our nation for over 60 years now. The army works for itself. And this will change. We will shine in the next few years.


      • Reality is biting you and I am sharing the 20 pieces of india story with everybody here like i did about you ass kicked in afghanistan in the past – you know what your ass is being kicked in Afghanistan and your india’s role over there is – nil and same thing will happen to your india soon – 20 pieces of the terrorist and thief india. I don’t know where you come from, nevertheless the whole inida is slumdog and like a toilet whichever piece out of 20 you will live will have the same stink.
