  1. Pakistan suffered immensely under the cold war and one such reason was for being on the wrong side in the war.

    The US initially began as a true friend but soon exploited and used Pakistan for her strategic advantage dumping her in the history rewrite grabbage bin, laying the blame of all American failures in the region at Pakistan’s door.

    Americans lost a key ally in Pakistan we as a nation are courageous, patriotic, brave and a young vibrant nation in the most important strategic geographic juncture in the world.

    Our late shaheed PM Liaqat Ali Khan always saw The Soviet Union as a real strategic ally and refused to allow US access to Pakistan. There are many stories around his assasination but rest assured many lead back to the black hand of The CIA.

    The Russians like The Arabs, and Pakistan over the last 2 decades have suffered at the hands of The Anglo Atlantic propaganda machine. They have many national and strategic interests that converge and the proof is on the pudding. While the US allowed the cancerous IS IS to flourish it was Russia that stopped them in their tracks only to rear their ugly head in our back yard AfghanPak. Same enemy Tereek-e-Taliban degraded by the Indo-US unholy alliance as IS IS.

    The years ahead are tough but not without hope.

    Pray for Imran Khan, Pray for Afwaj-e-Pakistan for the betterment of the region.

    We welcome the strengthening of ties with Russia.

    The purge within Pakistan needs to continue to cleanse the Pak Sar Zameen of the parasites and traitors to make a better stronger Pakistan.

    We will always be fair with the US but can no longer play their games of death and we are not their paid assassins.
