Pakistan's 'real enemy' lies within the nation: Editorial
Islamabad, June 24 (ANI): An editorial in a Pakistan daily has said the 'real enemy' of the country is in the guts of its countrymen.
Pakistan is opposed to the Taliban and its master, Al-Qaeda, but the country is outside the camp that fights them at the global level.
The editorial stated that Pakistan cannot fight its enemy- the Taliban and the Al-Qaeda- with an economy that is in shambles and a population that is helpless to rise against a state whose writ is already minimal.
The country is now more focused on the villainies of the U.S. and the NATO, who are being denied passage into Afghanistan, and are busy 'reinterpreting' the Taliban as paid killers of the U.S., while sheltering some of them as they cross the Durand Line and kill Americans getting ready to depart the region after being defeated, it stated.
If this is a victory, it is killing Pakistan, it said. Pakistan is appeasing its tormentors by making 'adjustments' at all levels - judicial, political, economic and military, it added.
It is understandable that the army feels uneasy fighting inside Pakistan. It is trained to fight external enemies, it said. But that doesn't mean that external enemies are created when there are none. The killers that make the Pakistanis people suffer are all inside Pakistan, it further said.
The editorial stated that another thing to note is the way that the atrocities inflicted by the TTP are presented to the people of this country. It is strange that Husain Haqqani is quickly branded a traitor for his role in the memogate affair, even before the Supreme Court gave its ruling on the matter. But the activities of the TTP have hardly ever received the same level of condemnation that came Mr Haqqani's way, it concluded.(ANI)
