Why We Should Hunt Terrorist in Pakistan Pakistan and Al-Qa’ida (International Islamic Front for Jihad Against the Jews and Crusaders) became one of the most worrying issues of the day. As far as struggle with terrorism is the matter of primary importance, more and more often Americans start coming to conclusion that the U.S. should enter Pakistan and pursue Al-Qa’ida. So, why should the U.S. government do it? The necessity of entering Pakistan seems to be obvious. Logically, if there is no other way to destroy Al-Qa’ida military bases in the Pakistans territory, the U.S.
army should enter Pakistan (even with having no consent from the side of the President Musharraf. Pakistani President obviously faces difficulties in his attempts to withstand Al-Qa’ida terrorists (Akins, 2007).
However, it is very important to develop a well-shaped strategy. There are more than three thousand Al-Qa’ida terrorists, who settled down in Pakistani mountaints. These terrorists are responsible for thousands deaths that took place during the tragic events of September 11. Al-Qa’ida terrorists plan to undertake more attacks, hereby being a threat to the world countries in general and the United States in particular. It would be a great mistake if the U.S.
government undertakes no action and prefers the policy of inertia (Bakier, 2007).
U.S. administrative dereliction may result in, probably, the most dreadful mistake, if it will refuse to pursue Al-Qa’ida. According to Reuters, there are several thousand Al-Qa’ida commandos, hiding somewhere in Pakistani mountain areas. Al-Qa’ida militaries enter Afghanistan from places of their dislocation. Al-Qa’ida trains suicide attackers and hide from pursuits of Afghanistan tribes, who treat terrorists with animosity. The representatives of the U.S. intelligence service consider that Al-Qa’ida may use these territories to prepare for the new terrorist attack.
While the assassination of Benazir Bhutto certainly plunged Pakistan into one of its works crisis in decades, the recent successful elections appear to have brought hope back again. The extremist parties did poorly, and even with a low turn out and election violence, it appears that the latest cycle of military rule is over. Yes, much remains unresolved. Certainly as Nathan Gardels argues in his ...
Mr. President Musharraf was one of the main Washingtons allies in their struggle with terrorism during the events of September 11, 2001, when the terrorists destroyed WTC. However, he was subsequently accused of too close relations with the U.S. by Pakistani opposition (Benjamin D. , Al Qaeda’s Renewed Strength, 2007).
In the very beginning the U.S. administration placed high emphasis on necessity to continue fruitful cooperation with Pakistani.
However, later some representatives of the Presidents administration claimed about examining the possibility to attack Al-Qa’ida militaries in the Pakistans territory. Naturally, there are some people, who try to oppose this. As they claim, the U.S. attack may destabilize Pakistan, provoke mass military conflicts in the country and undermine Musharrafs power. However, it is very important to understand that there are cases, when the country should choose the lesser of two evils. Again, it is important to understand that Al-Qa’ida imposes a significant threat to American government and its allies. Al-Qa’ida makes a threat also in relation to councils and embassies all over the world (Benjamin D.
, Al Qaeda’s Renewed Strength, 2007).
One of the recent Al-Qa’ida video threats tells that Al-Qa’ida plans to pursue the people both at home and abroad, as they pursue Al-Qa’ida. Al-Qa’ida considers that the U.S. should be punished for their policy in Iraq and Afghanistan (Bakier, 2007).
Al-Qa’ida leaders claim that they will make all places and corners in the world, where Americans planned their military strategy against Iraq and Afghanistan, and from where U.S. and other world countries continue providing support to the crusade against Muslims (Benjamin D. , The Nature of the Terrorist Threat, 2007), to be the target of their primary importance. Besides, Al-Qa’ida leaders threaten the world that soon enough they will see the attack, which will be far beyond that of September 11, 2001 (Abbas, 2007).
To what extent is the institution of marriage under threat in your country? Marriage can be defined as an institution in which two people engage themselves for the rest of their lives. Many people think that in today’s society, the marriage institution is in decline nowadays. This may be because people no longer believe in marriage. There are also a lot of factors contributing to the decline of ...
Al-Qa’ida leaders present the U.S. government with an ultimatum that they should lead their armies out of the territories of all Muslim countries, stop providing support to Israel and other Muslim enemies, and to release all Muslim prisoners. Taking into account all these threats, and analyzing all the facts about Al-Qa’ida, the U.S.
government has nothing to do, except of entering Pakistan and pursuing Al-Qa’ida. References Abbas, H. (2007).
