It is extremely concerning that Pakistan is engaged in an impervious program of making portable tactical dirty Bomb for possible wars against its adversaries. Given Pakistan’s track record of broken promises to external and internal obligations, and above all, its nuclear know-how proliferation to maverick rogue states such as Iran, Libya and North Korea, anything sort of dirty can be expected of it when it comes to Punjab interests.  What is more, IS with billions of dollars as a potential client has already expressed its clear intention to …

The United States generally, and the U.S. State Department in particular, seem perennially unwilling to grasp the realities of Pakistan. Refusing to recognize that Pakistan pursues ideological goals through the use of terrorism under its ever-expanding nuclear umbrella, the United States persists with the same strategy it has always used to handle the “Pakistan problem” – namely, attempt to induce better Pakistani comportment through handsome allurements.

By Hafeez Hassanabadi
