The UK’s leading security think-tank, the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), has said in an analysis that the Pakistani army, under the “Bajwa doctrine,” is holding back hard on US government threats.
In a report released on Thursday, RUSI said that Pakistan looks much more confident than when the US threatened then-President General Perdéh Musharraf to bomb Pakistan “into the Stone Age” if it did not comply with American demands.
The RUSI report said the United States had made the same threats as George W. Bush made heretofore, but “are the days of shyness and hasty to please the Americans.” The think tank was called the “Bajwa Doctrine,” suggesting that the Pakistani army should stop doing so, and that the world needs to do more.
He said that after 17 years of war on the western border and regular battles on the eastern border, the Pakistani army is now “battle-tested” and the world in the form of China, Russia, Turkey and Iran has come to defend Pakistan as America loses influence in Islamabad , “Pakistan is now relentless that the time for American threats and policies is over.
Written by Kamal Alam, RUSI’s expert on Pakistan and the Middle East, the report said that Milt Bearden, a former station chief in Islamabad, along with Congressman Charlie Wilson led the covert war of Pakistan to fight the Soviets in the 1980s, and former Secretary Hillary Clinton, have said it is wrong to blame Pakistan alone for the problems in Afghanistan and while Donald Trump’s government does not tolerate Pakistan, General Bajwa clearly made it clear before Trump’s tweet that Pakistan now has more time to shut down Gone.
The report noted that the US government had made a mistake by confusing General Bajwa with Pervez Musharraf, who had come under pressure responding to all American demands and threats. The report cited several former officers deployed at the time of the “war on terror,” saying that Pakistan had promised everything it promised to Afghanistan, but the US President’s political tweet on Pakistan and the US Follow-up of the US government seemed to be a departure from reality.
He said that the Turkish President and the Chinese and Japanese foreign ministers all supported their support for the well-known Pakistani counter-terrorism strategy.
The Pakistani military is fully prepared for any cuts in US military aid and potential threats of cross-border incursions by US forces, and feels its worldwide recognition and reputation as a counterattack, and the role of the military is very different from 2001. “The RUSI Report.
“The Pakistani military has made it clear that it will not do more than it has already done, and according to the COAS, Pakistan has to defend its borders and has already played in regional peace.” Since 2018, it’s the Americans. ” Pakistan and not the other way around: US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis has already said that he is in contact with the Pakistani military, because without them, US troops would not be able to move their equipment or survive Afghanistan inland. Pakistan knows it was wrong To trust America for seven decades. The Pakistanis have supported a war for which America has no answers with full fighting and logistical support. ”
The report says US aid to Pakistan is down, but the Trump factor combined with the threat of cuts in aid is a straw fire.
The message from the military is pretty clear – US equipment is no longer the only option for Pakistan. In fact, Pakistan actively buys hardware and produces more with China. As for US military aid, Pakistani Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor summarizes Pakistan’s perspective: “Pakistan has never fought for money, but for peace.” The message of the Pakistani military leadership is clear that Pakistan’s army has restored stability. The stability of Afghanistan is the responsibility of the Afghan Government and the US Armed Forces. In fact, the US still relies entirely on Pakistani support for logistics and full use of airspace for its armed forces. ”
The report quoted leading American generals and officers who said that without Pakistan, the war on terror would not have succeeded after 9/11. It was Pakistan that helped more militarily than any other NATO country, and the future, as far as the Pakistani army is concerned, is theirs, the report concluded.
