Ever since Pakistan achieved independence in 1947, relations between Islamabad and Washington have witnessed many ups and downs. Despite the fact that the relationship between the GHQ and Pentagon/CIA had mostly remained normal without any serious fallout at the regional or global level. After 9/11, however, Pakistan became a frontline state and non-NATO ally in USAs so-called war on terror, although no Pakistani national was involved in the tragic incident. Al-Qaeda was held responsible for the attack and thus Afghanistan was targeted by the US-NATO forces. During the last 10 years, Pakistans government, its military and people have suffered great losses, due to the mass migration of Afghans to our county, the breakdown of law and order and bomb blasts. Perhaps, it will never be possible to calculate accurately the extent of human life, financial and infrastructural losses suffered by the nation. As if that was not enough, the US-NATO forces conducted drone attacks inside the Pakistani territory to eliminate insurgent safe havens present in FATA. Unfortunately, the number of innocent citizens killed in the drone attacks far exceeded the insurgents, who were perceived as a threat to Americas safety. Although it may be a concern for the US, yet it will be unfair to ignore the deaths of innocent Pakistanis during the widespread, un-focused bombing and missile attacks by the trigger-happy forces; this indeed demands the worlds collective attention. Pakistan too should not keep its eyes closed over the colossal loss of its citizens. Parliament has passed a resolution urging the political dispensation and the armed forces to take serious steps to end the ongoing grave violations of international law by the US. Also, COAS General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani took immediate notice of the attacks on Pakistans soil, especially after the Raymond Davis affair that revealed the vast network of CIA agents working secretly across the country. For this, DG ISI General Kamal Pasha proceeded to Washington to meet his counterpart at CIAs Langley headquarters. But instead of a review of the policy the visit has failed to produce the desired results, and the US-NATO forces bombed a peace jirga killing many tribal leaders. It proved to be counterproductive; the people of Pakistan turned hostile and it did not help USAs goal of gaining their support for the war. Later, the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Admiral Mike Mullen, arrived in Islamabad with a list of accusations, the sum total of which was to do more. Within hours, General Kayani correctly rejected this oft-repeated US notion of not doing enough. In this backdrop, the National Security Special Committee (NSSC) of the Pakistan National Forum held a meeting to examine the emerging philosophy behind the profound statements made by Kayani during his visit to Waziristan; in his meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwas CM at Peshawar; and in his visit to Gwadar and Sui where he met with Balochistans CM and declared to pull out the army from certain areas replacing it with the frontier corps and build no new cantonments against the wishes of the people. He also pledged to induct 6,000 Balochis in the Pakistan army, which indicates the Generals approach to resolve all the issues with the communitys support to promote internal security. Additionally, the NSSC, while considering the defence of Pakistans eastern and western borders after the withdrawal of the occupation forces, declared that the Kayani doctrine - that seeks a friendly government, stability, andstrategic depth in Afghanistan - is the only solution for permanent peace in the region.
