Looking for the most wanted man in Pakistan? How about $10 Million bounty? The founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, Pakistan’s most wanted terror master Hafiz Saeed lead PRAYER in PUBLIC at the Gadhafi Stadium just outside Lahore last Friday.
What does this mean?
It means that the west no longer has regional war aims in Pakistan.
Unless Pakistan and by extension most of Southwest Asia and Central Asia develop and embody rules of governance that can succeed in fielding counterterrorist aims, Pakistan is LOST.
You can’t have an entire nation state like Pakistan, a nation with a highly mobile nuclear arsenal continue to have fractured civilian military relations. As was on display last Friday with Saeed.
The game is up. Time for the U.S. to field a counter-terror operation.
Let’s start with Pakistan!
