Americans preparing to invade PakistanNovember 22nd, 2007 - 4:01 pm ICT by admin
Lahore, Nov 22 (ANI): Dr Mubashar Hasan, Pakistan Peoples Party-Shaheed Bhutto (PPP-SB) Punjab president, has warned the government and the people against the US designs, and said that the US is preparing for a possible Iraq-like invasion of Pakistan.
The former minister said that the situation in Pakistan was a front-page story on every US national newspaper every day depicting an alarming picture of possible “collapse” of the country.
Dr Hasan, who returned from US recently, said that a prestigious think tank worked out that one million American troops would be required to invade Pakistan to “save” it from a “collapse”.
He claimed the US was searching for a military general willing to cooperate with it when the time was ripe.
Dr Hasan said the US wanted a military solution of the conflict it had created in the tribal areas between the demands of national security of Pakistan and the autonomy enjoyed by the people there for the last five decades.
In reality there was no conflict between the interests of the tribal Pakistanis and the government in Islamabad but the US had shamelessly chosen a moment to achieve its nefarious objectives when people were out on the streets to claim the freedom of media and judiciary.
He said the people wanted a genuine democratic dispensation for Pakistan. The US suddenly started crying hoarse in favour of the same but the people wanted it to let them fight their own battle, the Dawn reported. (ANI)
