The Islamic Republic of Pakistan on the other hand was created by the parting British, through their agent Jinnah to weaken and divide India, a year before his demise. The British created the Muslim League in Dhaka in 1905, the vehicle for the creation of Pakistan.
Logically most rational people and even some adolescent children would come to the conclusion that a country as peculiar as the USA would be a dire national threat to a country such as the "Islamic Republic of Pakistan". Indeed, the USA through this long term trajectory is a threat to every nation; First World countries, and obviously vulnerable Third World nations alike.
AND lo on queue ever since Pakistan became friends with the USA, at the behest of the Pakistan military from 1954, the nations problems have multiplied. The Pakistan military (ISI) and the USA complement each other, as the coalition of mischief makers within Pakistan.
- The USA created a dependency of Pakistan over American arms and then unceremoniously pulled the rug of military supplies at a very critical time, leaving the country vulnerable to invasion in 1965.
- Destabilized and toppled the Ayub Khan regime, which would have consequences for the country 1965---1969.
- During the East Pakistan insurgency gave the impression of supporting Pakistan fully, replete with aircraft carriers, but in reality gave India the Green light to invade East Pakistan.
- Made threats against Pakistan's nuke bomb program. 1974---present.
- Toppled a democratically elected government in 1977 through the military.
- Introduced massive Afghan narcotics into Pakistani society, and trained the ISI to work with them to export it to the rest of the world. BCCI etc.
- Killed the top brass of the Pakistan military.....on a pathological whim. General Zia was a pretty good American puppet.
- Ordered Pakistan to create the "al-Qaeda" myth, to which to this day the Pakistan military dutifully upholds fighting nonsensical phantom wars, against its own people, skewering reason for executing such wars to the extreme. And of course the Taliban from 1994. Both these American ideas have had dangerous consequences for the country as can be clearly seen.
- Since 2001, and GWOT, Pakistan economic losses has been anything between $43 billion to $70 billion as a result of its participation of the USA's unending imperial wars. The country is crumbling. The American aid of perhaps $25 billion does not meet these economic losses of the WHOLE OF PAKISTAN, BUT benefit sections of Pakistan society loyal to the USA. They take their American aid money and deposit it in Swiss bank accounts. American aid in fact destabilizes Pakistan society even further. It encourages big time crooks in Pakistan to be more crooked at Pakistan's expense, whilst honest hardworking Pakistanis are denied the opportunity to work and benefit Pakistan as a nation state.
- The USA since 1954, has destabilized Pakistan society and prevented it from developing into a mature democracy. THE MAIN AGENT OF THIS DESTABILIZATION IS THE PAKISTAN MILITARY (ISI).........The relationship of the PAKISTAN military with the USA is a strange homosexual sado-masochistic one. They bitch and harm each other, especially the USA towards Pakistan, but later and very quickly KISS and make up...and then have illicit sex with each other in a quiet cheap motel room, out of every bodies sight.
There are fundamental weaknesses in Pakistan's society. After all the British created Pakistan, and the ruling elite of Zamindari/Tamindari families (500) and Commercial families (30) are leftovers of colonial rule who look to foreign powers for "inspiration" especially the USA/UK. The Middle-class Pakistan military officer class, at the core of Pakistan's strategic problems are trained and indoctrinated in the USA.

Many Punjabis, the dominant ethnic group in Pakistan are in fact of low cast Hindu background who converted to Islam through the soothing mystical prayers of Sufis and Pirs over the centuries. Whilst you can change your name and religion at the toss of a coin, you cannot change your race that easily.
A CHAMAR will always be a CHAMAR.
Race defines the wider mentality, society and history of a nation. What might ordinarily offend an Iranian, a Turk or a Russian may not offend a chamar. A chamar too readily prefers to be cruel to their own kind, and loyal to alien gora masters from the other side of the world, even if they overtly harms the nation. This is a typical chamar trait, and Pakistan's Achilles heel.
Everybody in Pakistan agrees that the USA is the main problem, with PAKISTAN'S cooperation with American policy, but not the Pakistan "strategic depth" military (ISI).
Pakistan has clear alternative options to save the nation:
(1) Comprehensive peace with India. Recognition of LoC as International boundary, and FTA with India.
(2) Greater reliance on China, over and above preferentially to that given to the USA.
(3) Exposure of the "al-Qaeda" myth. Expose the fact that OBL passed away in 2001.
(4) Cessation of hostilities against Fellow Pakistanis by the Pakistan military......and clear disengagement from American security policy.
The Americans will react with threats if Pakistan finally finds courage, and I imagine the $ is tempting for many of the Pakistani military officers, but they must find the character and courage to do what is right for Pakistan, the nation state, rather than lie and prosecute crime for the USA against fellow Pakistanis.
China: 'Pakistan is our Israel'
By IPS News service.
When a US delegate once confronted a Chinese diplomat about Beijing's uncompromising support for Pakistan, the Chinese reportedly responded with a heavily-loaded sarcastic remark: "Pakistan is our Israel".
But judging by China's unrelenting support for some of its allies, including North Korea, Burma, Zimbabwe and Sudan, its protective arm around these countries is no different from the US and Western political embrace of Israel - right or wrong.
While China is battling the West over exchange rates, import tariffs and its territorial claims in the South China Sea, Beijing is also lobbying furiously to stall a Western- inspired proposal for a Commission of Inquiry on possible war crimes by the military junta in Burma (Myanmar).
"Such a commission should not be seen as a way to punish the government, but to prevent impunity and help prevent further abuse," says the UN Special Rapporteur on Myanmar, Tomas Ojea Quintana.
But China, which in January 2007 exercised its veto, along with Russia, to prevent Security Council sanctions against Burma, has not shown any willingness to back the proposal - even for a watered-down commission.
"Clearly," says one Asian diplomat, "China is trying to reassert its political clout at the United Nations as a counterweight to its defensive stand on currency and trade issues."
The New York Times newspaper said on Tuesday that the US administration is facing a "confrontational relationship" with an assertive China and is trying to respond to "a surge of Chinese triumphalism" by strengthening Washington's relationship with Japan and South Korea.
US President Barack Obama is planning to visit four Asian countries next month -
1. Japan (American colony, where baseball is the national sport)
2. Indonesia(defacto-American colony since 1965, after the Americans over threw Sukarno. The Americans have run the country through the Indonesian military. All Islamic Fundamentalists groups in Indonesia are controlled and run by the Indonesian military, including JI)
3. India (trying to make it more pro-American through a package of gimmicks, empty platitudes, and actual strategic help..civilian nuclear deal)
4. South Korea (American colony, where baseball is the national sport, and through law from the 1950's, America controls the Korean military and intelligence apparatus)
------- while bypassing China.
Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who needs China's support in the Security Council if he decides to run for a second term next year, is currently on his fourth trip to China, having visited the country in May and July 2008, and in July 2009.
In recent months, China has prevented a Security Council resolution against North Korea over the sinking of a South Korean ship and also tried to suppress a UN report alleging the use of Chinese-made bullets in attacks on UN peacekeepers in Darfur, Sudan.
"China sees value in promoting its image as the Security Council member defending the rights of the developing world, and China sees value in relying on the UN to counter US power," said Linda Jakobson, director of the programme on China and Global Security at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
Jakobson, an in-house China expert at SIPRI, points out that Beijing also sees value in participating in UN peacekeeping operations "both because this enhances the image of China as a responsible power but also because it gives Chinese military experience".
Still, China relented to US and Western pressure in supporting four Security Council resolutions imposing sanctions against Iran, one of Beijing's staunchest political, economic and military allies.
The fourth round of sanctions, all of them aimed primarily at Iran's nuclear programme, was imposed in June this year.
Justifying his country's support for the resolution, Chinese Ambassador Li Baodong was quoted as saying that Beijing wanted to make sure that sanctions would not affect the Iranian people or its normal overseas trade.
Jakobson said that China agreed to these sanctions after much deliberation and on the condition that the energy sector was excluded.
"This can be seen as a compromise solution on China's part," she said. "The exclusion of the energy sector was crucial."
Jakobson also pointed out that China wants to protect the massive investments by Chinese energy companies already in Iran or under negotiation with Tehran, and China wants to ensure that its long-term strategic plans for energy security are not threatened.
In a detailed policy paper released last month, and titled "New Foreign Policy Actors in China", SIPRI said the increasing sway of large state-owned energy companies have an increasing influence on foreign policy deliberations in China.
Jakobson, who co-authored the report with Dean Knox, said this is one example of that sway though it is noteworthy that there are other foreign policy actors who presumably were not inclined to advocate China's support of the resolution.
On the other hand, she said, there were presumably actors who advocated China's support for the resolution because China supports non-proliferation and does not want to see Iran go nuclear.
"If China had not supported the resolution, it would reflect badly on China's image and undermine its efforts to portray itself as a responsible global power," Jakobson said.
She said China attaches great importance to the United Nations and would like to see the role of the UN strengthened - though Beijing is wary of many proposals that want to expand Security Council membership and/or give power to members other than the present five permanent members, the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China.
The SIPRI report argues that actors outside the traditional power structure are increasingly shaping China's foreign policy.
Influential new actors on the margins include Chinese state- owned enterprises, especially energy companies, which, due to their widespread international outreach, affect China's bilateral relationships and diplomacy at large.
The others include local governments, especially in border and coastal provinces, which seek more lucrative trade and foreign investment opportunities.
At the same time, there is growing importance of researchers, who serve as advisors to officials and media, and netizens, who constitute a new pressure group that China's leaders at times feel compelled to take into account, not least during international crises.
The findings also point to a fracturing of authority in foreign policy formulation.
Diversification outside China's official decision making apparatus - along with changes within it - means that foreigners can no longer expect to only deal with one government agency or Party organ but must take into account multiple actors that have both a stake and say in the decision-making processes.
