US & Germany siding with terrorist nation Pakistan at their own peril

The removal of terrorist state Pakistan  from the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) grey list just days after the US Ambassador  to Pakistan’s  unprecedented  visit to PoK Pakistan occupied Kashmir) has deeper connotations for Bharat and an attempt  by Uncle Sam to indulge in some arm twisting and diplomatic brinkmanship.

Blome referred to PoK as AJK (Azad Jammu & Kashmir) in what is a blatant attempt by the US  to interfere  in Bharat’s  internal affairs knowing fully well that PoK was illegally  grabbed by Pakistan  army, tribals and non state actors in 1947. 

Ambassador Donald Blomes visit was preceded by an intentional  Salvo fired by the German  foreign minister Annalena Baerbock at a press conference  in the presence  of Pakistan foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari which was later apologized by their government after a strong rebuttal from our side. Annalena invoked the united nations on Kashmir on what is a strictly a bilateral  issue between  the two neighbors with Pakistan  a signatory  to the Simla agreement of 1972.

Bharat was quick to remind Germany that that FATF & UNSC (United Nations Security Council) were still pursuing  the Pakistani terrorists involved  in the 9/11 attacks. 

The sequence of these events happening  in quick  succession is not coincidental  but has deeper  ramifications . It’s a clear message to Bharat  that the Biden administration is not happy with  Bharat’s  stand on the Ukrainian  conflict and its supposed tilt towards Russia. 

Thus inspite of our tough opposition the US went ahead with arming Pakistan  with spares for it’s  deadly F – 16’s which will only be deployed on our western & northern  fronts inspite of claims to the contrary by the US.  

In a hilarious and preposterous  comment Pentagon termed the 450 million dollar sustainment package  for F-16 fighter jets as a counter terrorism  measure. This comes amidst  president  Biden’s statement  at the democratic congressional campaign committee reception in Los Angeles where he called Pakistan  as ‘The most dangerous nation in the world.’ “What I think is may be  one of the most dangerous nations in the world, Pakistan  nuclear weapons without  any cohesion.”

Obviously  the hawks among the democrats peeved at Bharat’s stance on Ukraine have prevailed upon the Biden administration to teach it’s  ally a lesson by rubbing it the wrong way by first arming its old ally in the region with some lethal arsenal and then in a diplomatic  muscle flexing move sending its ambassador  to Pakistan  on a visit to PoK knowing fully well that it is a part of our territory  under illegal occupation  by Pakistan..

Uncle Sam’s policy of supporting pariah state Pakistan  in preference  to the largest  democracy  of the world  will not only undemine its relations with  Bharat and lead to a trust defecit  between  the two democracies  but it will also force Bharat to rethink on it’s strategic interests vis-a-vis the West. 

It would be foolhardy for the  west to believe  that Bharat is a pushover  sub continental player which can be forced into subjugation through such needling. Pakistans age old tendency to harbour and train terrorists will not change by such antics and the Americans have had a taste of terrorism being dished out by Pakistan in the form of 9/11 & the latter providing a safe abode to Osama Bin Laden in the heart of Pakistan while the Americans went on a leather hunt  in the tora bora mountains.

The Biden administration  already has its hands full in Ukraine and on the domestic  front where the economy is looking down the barrel with ominous  signs of recession. The NATO allies are faring no better with negative growth  rates and with Russia  tightening the screws on oil and gas as winter looms the so Western  powers be it Germany, Britain or the US are battling for their own survival. In such a scenario  the US and its European  allies have made a diplomatic and political gaffe in annoying Bharat and propping up a known terrorist  state like Pakistan.
