Pak Army is a self-destructing force: Newsweek

Taliban Washington, Apr.26 (ANI): As the Taliban continues to advance and establish its writ in the newer areas of the country, the Pakistan Army has mysteriously failed to offer any resistance, thus compelling the United States to believe that they lack ability and capability and that they are a self-destructing force.

Perturbed by the Pakistan military’s meek response to the crisis, the United States has two special bills ready to provide Pakistan billions of dollars as military aid. Both bills would set benchmarks that Pakistan has to meet in order to keep qualifying for U.S. economic and military assistance.

The US may be busy in chalking out plans to help Pakistan out from the current chaos by offering it huge financial assistance, but an article in the Newsweek stated that threat from religious extremists would never subside until the country restructures it dysfunctional government fundamentally.

The article says that Pakistan military diluted constitutional governance in Pakistan in several ways over the years. Repeated coups and successive military regimes have prevented democratic government from growing and establishing it self. The army is more or less a parasite which is being fed the polity of the country.

Furthermore, the report says that the Pakistan army in a wicked quest for “strategic depth” against India had promoted the radicalization of neighbouring Afghanistan, the plan has now back fired and the problem has spilled back into its own territory going out of control.

Now, there is only one way out for Pakistan to turn things around and save the country from being wiped out from its existence, that is to demilitarize Pakistani politics, the report concluded. (ANI)
