KARACHI - An American think-tank, Centre for American Progress, has released its annual assessment of Pakistan and the corresponding region regarding how it is captivating into the New World Order since 9/11. The booklet titled, 'Partnership for Progress - Advancing a New Strategy for Prosperity and Stability in Pakistan and the Region, which openly stated: The military, not the civilian government, often drives Pakistani policy, because it is perceived to be a well-run institution serving the national interest. Yet, the report says the domestic terrorism could not be eliminated despite billions of dollars in aid allocated for this purpose by the United States. The report says, The Pakistani military resistance to the counterinsurgency mission is also due to the unpopularity of the US-led 'war on terror within its ranks. As far as the perception of the common man is concerned, the report further states, According to a USIP poll from February 2008, more Pakistanis (about 84 per cent) see the US presence in Asia as a threat to Pakistan than they perceive Al-Qaeda (about 62 per cent) or the Taliban (50 per cent) to be. The general observation remains, Some 58 per cent believe that the purpose of the US 'war on terror is to weaken the Muslim world and another 15 per cent believe it is to be specifically intended to ensure American domination over Pakistan. Interestingly, it even states; In October 2008, Pakistans parliament voted unanimously for a resolution that emphasised the threat of militant groups to Pakistan and advocated negotiations with these groups as the highest priority over military operations. Moreover at the end of October, Afghan and Pakistani leaders met in a mini-tribal council and decided to make contact with insurgent groups, including the Taliban, in order to face a peaceful resolution to the fighting. The report recommends how to dismantle militant groups and reduce regional tensions which are outright savvy and idealistic in nature, that does not bring forth any remarkable realistic approach to the harm done nor on the fact as how it should be undone.
