First World War commenced in 1914 and ended after five years, Second World War covered almost six years from 1939 to 1945. Besides of losses to material both the wars have proven disaster to the mankind.
The Great War (First World War) began as a clash of 20th century technology and 19th century tactics. In this war 40 million casualties resulted which include approximately 20 million military and civilian deaths.
The Second World War was humanity's deadliest war and also known as war of revenge caused tens of millions of deaths. President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the most civilized claimant nation (American) dropped two Atomic Bombs over the innocent people of Nagasaki and Hiroshima on August 6 and 9, 1945 and forced the Japanese to surrender by August 14, 1945. By giving such a huge loss to human being US was proudly able to argue that she won the war.
Now in 20th century another American President (Bush) again brought and dragged the world at a point which would be remember as another future catastrophe of the universe. The war on terror will definitely be accounted for in his credit in the future history.
Despite various differences, there are number of similarities in three wars, for example, the major characters are almost same i.e. US, British and other European countries those were also allies during WW II.
War against terror was instigated by Washington in 2001 with the aim of elimination Al - Qaeda militants but twisted into religion war due to the negative propaganda of western media against Islam. Both the world wars culminated within six years or so but war against terror has taken more than seven years and still continues like never-ending way. The question comes in the minds that will this war going to be culminated or lead to ultimate destruction of the world. Let’s hope that world ruling powers should get together and decide to save the world instead pushing it into anarchy just for the sake of their individual gains.
The basic cause of the war against terror was the debacle of 9/11, in that approximately 3000 multinational individuals (less Jews) suffered death but as a revenge or by design Bush administration pushed the world into that blind well which is yet to be filled despite taking the lives of millions Iraqi, Afghani and Pakistani innocent people.
The general masses of Muslims and NATO’s countries are now mentally convinced that war against terror have been mounted on them by Bush administration. Though this war has caused more losses to Pakistan, Afghanistan and somewhat to Iran but is also proving a cancer to American and European countries too. American only in the last seven years has received thousands of war victims and its annual war spending is more than 41 billion Dollars in Afghanistan.
Despite this much loss, Obama has shown his intentions of increasing his forces after withdrawing from Iraq. The newly elected US president must know that induction of more troops in Afghanistan will affect the already depleted American economy. The turnover of troops per annum is more than one million both in Iraq and Afghanistan which are causing negative financial and moral affects within Nato Countries and US too. The rate of desertion, cases of depressions and disobeying orders in US led coalition Forces are much more as compare to earlier. American congress must also remember that any further misadventure in Pakistan will increase the tension between two allies and also provide a chance to Islamabad to pull her hands from supporting war on terror.
This stoppage of logistic support only would be further set back to the economy of US and Nato’s countries. The continue violations of Pakistani territory by US drones is fueling the already lit flame against Bush Policies. It was revealed on an electronic media that 355 persons were killed in 35 US drones attacks .Out of these 301 were innocent civilians, 36 were alleged members of Al - Qaeda and the Taliban and 18 were members of the Pakistani security forces.
Only eight out of 35 strikes were based on human intelligence, which proved to be correct.
Among these eight strikes was one in which Abu Laith al-Libi, projected by the US as an important Al Qaeda operative, and was killed. The remaining 27 strikes were based on human intelligence, which proved to be incorrect.
16 out of the 35 US attacks were carried out between January 1 and August 31, 2008. The remaining 19 strikes were carried out between September 3 and November 15 2008. Chief of Staff for the Pakistani Army, General Ashfaq Kayani has proceeded to attend NATO’s Army Chiefs Conference, where he will likely to discuss the issue of drone’s attack in Pakistani territory.
If Obama is not going to revise this policy of intrusion then Pakistani government will be forced to adopt her own means to deal war against militancy. Pakistan has suffered heave tool of economical and physical losses. Her traditional rival India found an excellent chance to exploit the American interference to destabilize our country. RAW has established more than 100 foreign training centers and 17 Foreign Offices in Afghanistan and along the north-western border. They are launching well-trained agents, equipped with weapons in Frontier and Balochistan Provinces. Some of leaders of banned organizations are also receiving the heavy money from the foreign intelligence agencies to gain the sympathies of uneducated, poor and innocent individuals on the name of holy war and are playing with the lives of the innocent women, children and youngsters. So far they have carried out 1000 blasts in various cities of Pakistan and caused heavy damaged to the men and material. Apart from suicide attacks and bomb blasts in other tribal regions, similar aggressive acts are being conducted by them in Balochistan. They are basically hiring the services of Uzbaks and criminal personal of the area. In an Internet report it was revealed that a new gruesome of South Waziristan Laddha based are imparting ****** Training to innocent girls and women ageing between 10 – 35 years old. He is being funded by foreign agency too. This new hatchery of producing female suicides bombers is being headed by Commander Moulvi Shamim at his Muddrassah in Laddha South Wazirsitan. The Uzbak and Afghani women instructors are imparting religious and suicide training to these innocent women folk of the area. Trainees include Mehsud, Punjabis and Sindhi women and girls. Apart from these nursery of potential suicide female bombers couple of houses in Sam Sarai, South Waziristan Agency are also acting as a school of futures suicide bombers where 30 /40 girls and boys of Baderzai South Waziristan Agency are also being trained on similar lines. It was also revealed that about 100 to 120 girls and boys of Baderzai South Waziristan Agency are also being engaged by locals in a maddrassah to prepare them for so called Holy War against Pakistan .Uzbek fighters who were expelled from South Wazirstan in 2007 and Bajuare by local Security Forces and local lashkars are getting foot hold in troublesome area of the agency. Moreover 40/50 Uzbek along with their families have shifted to SWA from NWA and Afghanistan. Actually there is a need to check all these activities now because there are unknown foreign hands who are exploiting the situation of tribal belt of FATA to complete their nefarious design against Pakistan.
Raw and CIA are on the mission of sabotaging politician process in Pakistan by creating rifts in the Intelligence agencies and government, Media and Government , supporting anti state elements, Defaming Pak Army , ISI and anti nuke propaganda against Pakistan Peaceful nuclear programme. They are involved in money laundering, introducing fake currency, provision of weapons and equipment, kidnapping foreigners (particularly Chinese), and carrying out sabotaging activities, supporting anti- state elements in FATA and Balochistan. For example in media compaign against Paksitan and its security forces, on November 6, 2008 in an article “What do you mean, bin Laden doesn't exist? published on “The Times online”, Tony Loyed misqoted Pakistani army officers in his self created story .
Similary on November 16, 2008 Washington post too made an effort of defaming Pakistani govenemnt and ISI in genral public while claiming in an article written by Jonathan S. Landay, McClatchy that Pakistan and U.S. have tacit deal on Air strikes. The writer of the same article also covered the visit of the Pakistan’s new intelligence chief, Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha’ October visit to Washington and secret meeting of Hayden and Zardari at New York.
Basically authors of the article interlinked all events to give strength to his fabricated and baseless storey. Pakistan Spokesman has strongly denied and condemned this unsubstantiated allegations while stating that there is no such type of written or verbal agreement have been concluded between Pakistan and US.
Pakistan President Zardari and Foreign Minster Shah Mehmood Quresh at the occasion of Inter-faith conference very rightly said that Pakistan paid huge price both in economic and human terms. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has also confirmed while conducting a news briefing In News York in second week of November 2008 that amounting to $34.5 billion have been spent by Pakistan since 2001.
American leadership must know that the deployment of Indian troops cannot not be acceptable to Pakistan since later has already paid heavy prices because of malicious activities of RAW, Mossad, Khad and CIA. In short Obama has a chance to review the muddled Bush Policy regarding war on terror which will save persistent deteriorating condition of US as well as world economy; otherwise one should remember that continuous bleeding cancer results into ultimate death, which could be the death of America and its allies those are on anti Pakistan Mission. Thus UNO should play her role in ending this bogus war on terrorism.
