AFTER the statement of COAS General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Tariq Majid has very rightly described the utterances of Indian Army Chief, portraying that his army can take on Pakistan and China simultaneously, as rhetoric and showing his lack of strategic acumen. The Chairman JCSC, who has complete command, in-depth knowledge and fuller grasp of the defence capabilities of the two countries told the Indian General that he (Kapoor) knows very well what the Indian Armed Forces cannot and Pakistan Armed Forces can pull off militarily. People of Pakistan and India want peace and resolution of their problems through dialogue and not by wars. It is strange that the Indian leadership did not take any notice of the boasting of warmongering army chief. General Tariq, though doubted the veracity of Indian media report attributed to General Kapoor by saying that he could not be so outlandish in strategic postulations to place India on a self destruct mechanism. By this the worthy Chairman JCSC was definitely referring to the lethal nuclear deterrence that Pakistan has at its disposal. Pakistan has made tremendous sacrifices and acquired mastery over the sophisticated technology not to keep it as a show–piece but for the preservation of national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Any how, General Kapoor’s ignorance of Mutually Assured Destruction and his inability to grasp the consequences of rash actions across borders shows his juvenile mindset and vacuity of thought. At the same time the new Indian doctrine along with the earlier restructuring of the Command structure, particularly the operationalisation of South West Army Command has increased manifold threats to Pakistan. Therefore we believe that the whole security paradigm for Pakistan has to be revisited in the light of the emerging threats to face any aggression due to folly of an insane Army Commander on our eastern front.
