WASHINGTON: The United States says Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are under appropriate control and it is not worried about their security. This has been stated by the Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell in Washington. Pakistan rejecting media speculations about safety of its nuclear assets in the political transition period has already categorically ruled out the possibility of their falling into wrong hands, saying its strategic assets are as secure as any in the world.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,

    The National Secrecy, pride and dignity is for sale in Pakistan ?

    The Pakistan created after incredible sacrifices of the people of subcontinent on 14th August 1947 since then the Pakistani people are left at distant from the corridor of power so that the ruling elite can do what they wanted to do in favour of their interest, leaving the Pakistani people at the mercy of circumstances. As this policy is denial of right of Pakistani people to rule their country according to their aspiration and desire to built this country, which can provide equal opportunity to all without any discrimination for the establishment of welfare society. Only the society base on tolerance, equality and justice can be the real guarantee for the prosperous and strong Pakistan there for your intention is invited to the crucial movement which could be the point of distraction or disaster.

    No political party in the election arena raised a finger against the centralized power in the hands of one person or few of them Nobody talk about to empower the Pakistani at grass route level, why? Because they to, want to grab, total power in their own hand, so how, politician differ from Musharaf mean all eggs are one and the same in the basket.

    No one dare to trust the Pakistani people and involved them in to the day to day decision making process with intention to develop a sense of participation in to the decision making process affecting the future of their country and their generation at large and share the real benefit of democracy, but, due to the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits, deprivation and opinions of the masses being an important element within so-called democratic society, they manipulate this elements of society to constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.

    More so, return of political leadership of PPP and PML(N) to Pakistan was subject to condition, political coalition cannot take creative action or dare to change policy in the national interest till (general) Musharaf is in power. Therefore ,It will be difficult to expect any thing positive at this stage. Current government need to take patriotic political decision in the interest of Pakistan without fear of American anger, because of US support during mediation process for their return , but as usual the national interest has again been ignored for the sake of power and external interest.

    At present they (US/NATO) are fighting their war of military/political interest in the region, involving the dependent country like Pakistan, under intimidation of sever consequences to bear, if refuse to support them; The current demand draft of 11 points, submitted by the so-called democratic imperialistic state of USA is a clear sign to a sovereign government of Islamic Republic of Pakistan to accept and obey as matter of master’s voice. This act is a kind of intimidation and direct involvement in the internal matter of a sovereign state. This act create a question as if we are really a sovereign state or part and partial of USA,

    This is a moment invite us all for serious consideration weather to keep our independence in tact or bow down before this mighty evil, democratically bullying to accept the terms and condition of USA or in other words be ready to loose our independence for ever. Then, how can we preserve our freedom when our real strength is controlled by the USA, shame on all of us as a nation if the president and Head of forces of Pakistan cannot answer this question of National Importance, to the Nation that;

    Is USA controlling our Nuclear Arsenal ? If yes ,the nation would like to know ,who is responsible for this treason ? OR if not ,then Nation would like the clarification of this question of National pride , dignity and security ,that;

    “Pride and joy of Pakistan, the Nuclear Weapons, are on Pakistani soil but under American control”.

    That is the word from political and diplomatic experts in the West. Eric Margolis, a Canadian and a pro Pakistani analyst, who gained his importance as an expert on Pakistani Army and Afghanistan military imbroglio after 9/11, believes so. Writing recently in The Dawn (Pakistani Newspaper), he said that the American Command Control technology and security codes are already in place to safeguard the Pakistani 40 odd nuclear weapons. Washington now will demand complete integration of US and Pakistani forces structure. Next step will be to jointly guard the nuclear weapons on Pakistani soil. Finally, total control of the nuclear weapons by America, even though they stay in Pakistan.

    If, Pakistan does not agree to this then the payment of the budgeted $3 Billion US aid will be withheld. The latter is the amount, which keeps Pakistan as a nation financially afloat. It is urgently needed

    Who made pride of Pakistan Dr.AQ.Khan a scapegoat ?

    “The Pakistani Strongman, General Musharraf liked the idea of holding Pakistani Army blameless and agreed to put the blame on Adbul Kadeer Khan’s shoulders. But there was only one hitch. Abdul Kadeer Khan is next only to God in Pakistan. He gave the country the Islamic Bomb; hence will not take exclusive responsibility for nuclear proliferation to Libya, Iran and North Korea. In the interest of $3 Billion and much more in aid from America, Abdul Kadeer Khan agreed to take the full blame and got the Army off the hook.”

    In return, America agreed to continue the economic aid with a caveat that Pakistan accepts its aid in control and safeguard of the nuclear weapons in three phases as Eric Margolis has written.

    The cleverly placed disclosures and perfect timings have stripped the most dangerous country in the world of its nuclear weapons and got the military government on its side. The politicians and religious parties in Pakistan clamored a bit but have calmed down, since they also like the American money. In addition the Islamic war on the West with Pakistan as the epicenter, which started on 9/11, has made them a sore looser.

    This is a moment invite us all for serious consideration weather to keep our independence in tact or bow down before this mighty evil, democratically bullying to accept the terms and condition of his interest, or in other words be ready to loose our independence for ever. This act create a question as if we are really a Sovereign Nation or part and partial of USA.
    IDP invite all the patriotic forces of Pakistan to unite and be prepared to take the rein of socio-political change in Pakistan to protect the freedom, pride ,and dignity for Pakistan .
