The push theory pushes drug dealers and insurgents out of an area. This action does not eliminate the the insurgents or destroy the insurgency. It simply moves and “pushes the insurgents to a different area, usually into civilian quarters.
The US and NATO have been successful in pushing the insurgency, though not the insurgents out of Kabul to the Afghan Pashtun countryside. NATO, Khad, RAW and others then pushed the insurgency into the tribal areas of Pakistan. Continued activity pushed the insurgency, (not the insurgents) into Swat and Islamabad.
Already some of this insurgency has spread beyond Srinagar. More boots on the ground will spread this fire deep into the heart of India. From the other side, Burma, Thailand already are fighting a growing insurgency.
A more animated intervention or invasion of Pakistan will further push the insurgency and the insurgents into Lahore, Sialkot, Rawalpindi, and other settled areas of Pakistan. Surely the US army will follow the insurgency and the insurgents. Drones flying over Islamabad and firing missiled children hidden in Aabpara or missiles being fired into Gulberg 3 and Husein chowk in Lahore?
A deluge of Dollars in Pakistan is conjuring up visions of the “Democracy utopia and distracts Pakistanis from the current occupied dystopias in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine.
The Crescent of fire now spreads from the Mediterranean to the Indus.
“Monkey say, monkey do. Pakistan follows the Chinese model of development and does not follow the penury stricken Indian model which is a total failure. 78 separatist movements exist in India.
Pakistanis have to dump the archaic notions, and band together.
