Ammar Faheem lashes out without mincing any words US Ambassador Patterson MUST be EXPELLED which comes in response to Anne Patterson’s statment regarding the Quetta Shura yesterday “You cannot tolerate vipers in your bosom without getting bitten our concern is whether Pakistan really controls its territory. There are people who do not threaten Pakistan but who are extremely important to us.’’ Signifying quite openly that America is gearing up for an offensive in Quetta. EXCUSE ME….. isn’t she a foreign diplomat issuing aggressive offensive orders against the state of Pakistan? Whatever happened to our Army?
On the other hand the very same day Rehman Malik, Pakistan’s Minister of Interior, who should have all knowledge of the in’s-n-out’s about our country is on record to have said “Over and again this topic has been coming up. But according to us the Quetta shura does not exist in Quetta” —- goodness gracious, it surprising that even our top notch minister has no clue whats up in Quetta, let alone prepare a for it
The bigger question that does send a shudder down our spine, is WHO IS ACTUALLY RUNNING THIS COUNTRY? for sometime it has slowly been evident that we are being manipulated by the Americans – Isn’t it normal diplomatic norms that a foreign diplomat be required by law to ‘not interfere’ with the affairs of the country, shouldn’t a diplomat be required to report any security issues regarding the host country immediately to the country heads, failing which it then becomes a security issue which the host country has the prerogative to politely declare such persons as persona non-grata and escort them out.
My position on the present US military buildup in Pakistan remains he same, they MUST reduce their thousand strong marine force and other peripheral extra-military personal to a bare minimum, as need to protect the US Embassy. We cannot, will not and should not, tolerate the creation of yet another rogue militia in Pakistan, we have enough free-roaming armed foreign militia, as it is, that we do not need to welcome another group to help run the affairs of our country, we must aim to resurrect ourselves out of this gloomy terrorism mafia by helping to reduce this military buildup, not increase it.
Anne Patterson quite perfectly says “You cannot tolerate vipers in your bosom without getting bitten” Seriously – Look who’s talking?
As any self respecting Pakistani would say – We appeal to our Ministry of Interior to please declare US Ambassador Ms Anne Paterson persona non-grata and escort her out of the country, it is, the only right thing to do
