Still Call Yourself A Free Nation?

The day first US predator drone struck targets inside Pakistan; many circles started guessing what more is to come. The face saving protest by our establishment is all we could hear from time to time, but of course the gate way was already provided.

A few days back a very suspicious announcement was made on behalf of Obama administration that a sum of $1 billion has been allocated for the construction of residential facility at the US embassy in Islamabad. Now any sane person with a little knowledge of construction can easily calculate that with this amount, you can build an entire new city in terms of Pakistani rupee value. Just today, many papers have reported that this new expansion in US embassy is intact to house 7000 US marines that will be stationed inside Pakistan, and for a bigger surprise it’s also in the air that around 2000 of them have already reached Pakistan.

I have yet to recover from the shock of this revelation, when I think that after this what else remains in terms of our “sovereignty”. What is the government planning for us in the next few years is hard to understand, but if this continues like this it wont be long that we will be turned into a colony of US like South Korea and Japan (or is it already too late).

Whether it is the part of Obama’s AFPAK or some other cruel design, we cannot ask for a worst night mare than that. It’s time that as a nation we should stop compromising out dignity, faith and nationalism. How can we see right in front of our eyes our Pakistan being annexed by alien powers?

  1. This all started when the US claimed that they will finish Baitullah Mehsud and co., but haven’t been successful in that.
    They launched a new mission, with a new name but is focussed on the same.

    After spreading the rumour of Baitullah Mehsud’s death, so that any communication from their side would lead the US to them, they attacked many houses in the area from where Baitullah Mehsud gave an audio message.

    Now they decided to get 4000 army officials to fight, specifically, on land. This is the largest quantum of land army officials ever stationed in a foreign country since the Vietnam War.

    All this has been reported by the BBC.

    Hmm…anyway, I don’t know when exactly Pakistan actually got Independence = The state or quality of being independent; freedom from dependence; exemption from reliance on, or control by, others; self-subsistence or maintenance; direction of one’s own affairs without interference.

    There are great elements of dark humour in Pakistan’s Independence.
