Previously the Indians were polite in avoiding calling the failed state a failed state, but not any longer. This I think is progress in International relations.....if you base your diplomacy and relations grounded on reality, and intimate this fact to your own domestic public (for public information purposes) and the nation in question.
However such statements should not be made publicly, by Indian statesmen in alliance with another power such as the USA. There are good reasons. India should not be seen to be "ganging up" on its neighbor, and trying to score cheap points on the diplomatic plain. Any country in a "Failed state" scenario is in a very serious situation for their own people, and for their neighbors.......however the recognition of this fact, which is very important by India, must not become a cheap diplomatic scoring point for India at the same time.
How does India intend to address the "Failed state" problem of Pakistan comprehensively, for the future?
Will India provide money and technical resources to the civilian government in Islamabad to alleviate the problem?
To what extent does New Delhi recognize the role of the Pakistan military in the "Failed state" situation in Pakistan?
To what extent does New Delhi recognize the role of the USA in the "Failed state" situation in Pakistan?
How will India successfully integrate "Failed State " Pakistan into the SAARC community of countries for the future?
India calls Pakistan 'fragile' stateBy Yahoo News, via antiwar.com
India sounded the alarm on Friday that Pakistan had become a "fragile" state with militant groups nurtured as "an instrument of state policy" uniting in their battle against the government.
(Yes 500,000 of them since the 1970's under the aegis and funding of the USA/Saudi....and yes they are manageable, but a serious nuisance to Pakistan's stability, since what they have created is state sanctioned private militia's being used by one and all, at a whim.......Generals who retire....Zamindars/Tamindars...who wish to enforce their writ....various political parties with different agenda's........the PAKISTAN MILITARY themselves as the biggest operator of such groups used against Afghanistan, India, Iran........and Pakistan...for destabilization purposes, which paints the Pakistan military as essential necessary heroes of the hour saving the nation from extremists.
The British military operated such people in Northern Ireland UDF.....3500 deaths in the UK from that conflict 1970--2000
Ditto the Turkish military......Ditto the American military, especially in South America......ditto Israel in relation to many of the Islamist outfits in the Occupied territories.......ditto the Indonesian military.....
However unlike many of these first world countries mentioned above, these paramilitary proxy forces were small, highly manageable, well documented and controlled by the state institutions. Pakistan on the other hand is a "Failed State".....and has propagated far too many of these state proxy force paramilitaries...500,000.
They can't take over Pakistan, THE THREAT OF WHICH AMERICA WOULD LIKE INDIA TO VOICE AND PROPAGATE.........which is not in India's interests, but they will create instability for Pakistan which will be exploited by the USA for its own Jewish agenda's set by Israel (securing Pakistan's nukes.....objective since the 1970's)
In this hidden narrative the Pakistan military have helped Israel, since in the final analysis the Islamist proxy forces have very little real military value, except as a propaganda weapon, and fear weapon.)
Home Minister P. Chidambaram issued the warning at the start of talks with US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who is on a four-day trip to India to strengthen anti-terror information-sharing between the countries.
New Delhi has long accused Pakistan of harbouring militant groups, but analysts say it is becoming increasingly concerned that growing unrest could compromise the safety of the country's growing nuclear arsenal.
Chidambaram said in a statement that the "global epicentre of terrorism" was in Pakistan where "the vast infrastructure of terrorism in Pakistan has for long flourished as an instrument of state policy".
He continued: "Today, different terrorist groups, operating from the safe havens in Pakistan, are becoming increasingly fused; the society in Pakistan has become increasingly radicalized; its economy has weakened
"The state structure in Pakistan has become fragile."
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton flew into Pakistan on Friday with "tough questions" for the country's leadership nearly a month after US commandos killed Osama bin Laden near Islamabad.
The US diplomat met Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, then headed into talks with army chief Ashfaq Kayani and the chief of Pakistan's intelligence agency Ahmad Shuja Pasha, officials said.
She is also likely to try and smooth over relations between Pakistan and the United States, which sank to new lows after US Navy SEALs swooped on the Al-Qaeda chief's compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad on May 2.
Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947.
A stop-start peace process is officially back on, but ties remain frosty.
India broke off formal peace talks with its neighbour after the 2008 attack on Mumbai that left 166 dead and was blamed on the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group.
New Delhi and has repeatedly called on Islamabad to bring the perpetrators to justice. Pakistan has charged seven people but none has been convicted.
