A revival of Pakistan-US strategic partnership. Situation in Afghanistan, Asia, and Gulf is leading to this. This is a chance for both to repair ties. Islamabad can regain influence lost after Cold War. #Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
It is important for US interests in the region & for Pakistani interests that these two countries revive their strategic coop on equal footing ASAP. The US & PK, who won in Afghan war four decades ago, are on the retreat today thanks to regional players pushing a US & Pak defeat.
#Iran & #India have revived their 30yo plan of pulling Afghanistan out of American influence & failing Trump's Afg peace/pullout project. New Delhi & Tehran are working to end any Pakistani role in Afg peacemaking. #Chabahar is a key component of this project, and so is scuttling

The busting of #Iran-backed #Karachi cell & role in #Ormara attack shows #Tehran has not stopped its anti-#Pakistan activities after the busting of #ChabaharTerrorNetwork, a joint project with #India, in 2015. /3

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

A lot of chatter from American media about "Time to bring our boys home" & wasting "hundreds of billions of dollars" on #Afghanistan's "endless war". Well, let me tell you the story of the US led presence in #Afghanistan from an Afghan perspective based on facts.Follow my tweets.
1-After 9/11, US led international forces with support from anti-Taliban fighters defeated the extremist group in a few weeks. Having been tired of Taliban's repressive regime which had pushed #Afghanistan to dark ages, the #Afghan people welcomed the US led international forces.
2-The Afghan people, who were traumatised by years of conflict under #Taliban &warlords, came out in large numbers to participate in the country's 1st presidential elections in 2004. They elected Karzai. Optimisim for a brighter future was palpable across the country.

Iranian militias in #Syria
By the beginning of 2012, with the increasing peaceful demonstrations the #IRGC began to feel the danger to the regime of its ally Assad and the major schisms within the #Assad army. Opposition sources estimate the number of dissidents at 150,000.1/12
Because of Assad's field losses, Tehran gave orders to #Hezbollah terrorist militia to conduct military intervention to save #Assad. It was the first direct military presence of the militia in southern #Damascus and the vicinity of Damascus International Airport.2/12

ICG members commended Gov of #Afghanistan under the leadership of @ashrafghani and @afgexecutive for its courageous initiative of a temporary ceasefire with the Taliban on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr and the offer to extend the duration of this ceasefire. (2/8)
This cessation of hostilities during the Eid al-Fitr holiday has shown that the overwhelming majority of the #Afghan people want peace and that violence can be effectively stopped. (3/8)
