Lindsay Graham said the US needs to consider starting a war with Pakistan

Lindsay Graham said the US needs to consider starting a war with PakistanMember of the United States Senate Committee on the Armed Forces, Republican Lindsay Graham, made a statement that the US need to consider the possibility of starting a war against the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, if Islamabad continues to support terrorist organizations.


According to the senator, the Islamic Republic was involved in hostile actions against the United States and its ally Afghanistan, and this must be stopped. "They kill American soldiers." Therefore, if Pakistan continues to support Islamic terrorism as part of its national strategy, the United States will have to consider all possible options, including military action. September 25 reported by the Associated Press.

At the same time, it is said that Lindsay Graham does not call for war with Islamabad, but believes that, among other options, this one should be considered. The US senator said that if experts conclude that the United States needs to respond more harshly, then decisive actions by the White House will find full support in Congress, both among Republicans and Democrats.

Such a tough position is caused by the fact that lately Washington and Islamabad have already disagreed several times. In the summer, there were even rumors about the US readiness to conduct a military operation against Pakistan, but this was prevented by China’s firm position.

And on September 22, Washington announced the involvement of the Islamic Republic of terrorists. Michael Mullen, Chairman of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff, speaking before the Senate Committee on Armed Forces, made a statement that the security services of Pakistan are actively cooperating with the so-called “Haqqani network” - an extremist group in the Taliban.

It was on the “Haqqani network” that the Americans laid the blame for the attack on the US embassy in Kabul on 13 in September, when a small militant detachment held the unfinished high-rise building for almost a day, and from it the Taliban fired at nearby buildings. In addition to the US embassy, ​​the NATO headquarters has come under attack. According to the BBC, then 25 people died. The same organization is responsible for blasting the truck, which was filled with explosives. This September 10 attack took place at a checkpoint in Wardak province, when 5 Afghans were killed and 77 American soldiers were injured.

Islamabad confirmed the existence of contacts with the “Haqqani network”, but the prosecution considers it unfair, as any intelligence intelligence service, and the Pakistani ISI is not an exception, seeks to maintain contacts with opposition groups, even terrorist organizations, “to achieve positive results.” In addition, the official representative of the Pakistani secret service, Athar Abbas, in a telephone interview with a CNN reporter, said that the Islamic Republic is not the only state that keeps in touch with the Haqqani network.

It should be noted that recent events - especially the assassination of the ex-president Burhanuddin Rabbani of Afghanistan, have caused a great resonance in Afghan society and set many Afghans against Pakistan. Thus, the former speaker of the Upper House of Parliament Sebhatulla Mujadidi said that foreigners, Pakistan and ISI were involved in the murder. According to him, "ISI is the cause of all disasters and instability in Afghanistan." And the deputy press secretary of the Afghan president, Seyamak Heravi, reported the official version of Kabul that practically all the high-profile killings of officials in Afghanistan that occurred in the past six months were prepared with the participation of "certain circles" in the Pakistani state.

    It is ridiculous to read about the position of the congressman, given the active support of the AKM by the amers of the AKM in Libya, the Muslim brothers in Egypt and, in general, all Islamic radicals in the Greater Middle East. How doused from the shower)

    Iran is simply taken into the ring, just like Russia. And if this is done, it means that economic killers, hired killers of the CIA and faked revolution have failed. It seems that a rather big war will start soon ....

    No, this feminism will bring the states to the pen faster than the dollar crisis. Where do they get these? That condolysis, that hillariclinton, that this ...

    "According to the senator, the Islamic Republic was involved in hostile actions against the United States and its ally Afghanistan, and this must be stopped." They are killing American soldiers. ""

    And where, excuse me, do they kill American soldiers? In Utah? Or in New Mexico?
    In Pakistan? And what, I'm sorry, did the American soldiers forget?

    It turns out that in Afghanistan ... Afghanistan, it turns out, is an ally of the United States ... This was news to me. And what on the territory of an ally do such shobli American soldiers? History remembers many such "allies", Germany had Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, we had Western Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia ...
    Let's already call clay clay, and g% vn g% vnom.

    "ISI is the cause of all the disasters and instability in Afghanistan."

    Yeah, the same shouting about al-Qaeda, and in Libya, what ended up ... Consider, they walked hand in hand ...

    "Sayamak Heravi told the official version of Kabul that almost all the high-profile killings of officials in Afghanistan that occurred in the past six months were prepared with the participation of" certain circles "in the Pakistani state."

    As well as certain triangles, rhombuses and squares. Somehow not so official statements should sound. there should be no vague wording. This is like “a high-ranking source from the general staff of the headquarters said ...” Highly and a cleaner can be put. On the tank. It will be very high. Especially if the cleaning lady from the General Staff. All complied with.

    Total. as I understand, in the states they cannot decide with whom to begin further the elimination of their crisis. Pakistan has been added to Syria and Iran. Very reasonable, if you take as "confuse your own and confuse everyone else." We are waiting for the continuation.

      The war goes for resources. First of all, the resources of Africa and the Middle East. Between China and the USA. Pakistan is a transit corridor for the delivery of resources to China. Look at China's investment in Pakistan's port and transport infrastructure. For China, letting the United States occupy Pakistan means committing suicide. And part of the territory of Pakistan they do not need at all. Need access to the sea i.e. all of Pakistan and better as an ally than as a rebellious province. Here, in fact, everything depends on the Indians - God forbid, they will want to get into this weld out of the guise .............. we will get the third world and most likely nuclear. Even if not nuclear, it will still be fun.

    Pakistan is now in China’s sphere of influence, and the United States doesn’t like it. To draw China into the future in the war, Pakistan is a good bait.

    Not a single Islamic state will become a "beating boy" for Amer’s educators. Moreover, nuclear Pakistan will not be. One can possess arbitrarily large military and economic power, but one cannot declare war on the whole world. The belly button is untied. This is likely to happen soon. States are overheating from a sense of self-worth. Sideways come out. Ultimately, the whole Islamic world will rise up against them, and at the same time China and black Africa.

    Pindos! Where are they going? Pakistan is a nuclear power. It will give change, it will not seem enough. And Pakistan is not Libya at all.
