Ex ISI chief slams US military agenda in Pakistan

By: PressTv

Former chief of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency says the Americans along with the Israelis are pursuing a wider military agenda in the troubled south and central Asian region.

On Friday, in an exclusive interview with Press TV Hamid Gul strongly criticized US President Barack Obama’s decision to expand CIA operated missile strikes in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province.

His comments came after a New York Times report said that Obama had authorized an expansion of drone attacks on Pakistan’s troubled tribal regions.

The unpopular strikes were initiated under the George W. Bush administration in 2006.

The use of drones has increased since the Nobel peace laureate Obama became president.

Gul, a critic of US war fomenting policies in the region, doubted that the fugitive Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden or Taliban leaders were hiding in the Pakistani territories that borders Afghanistan.

He also revealed that Al-Qaeda linked militants had left the Pakistan years ago and were finding their new safe havens in Somalia and Yemen.

He also claimed that the Americans along with the Israeli regime were trying to neutralize Pakistani nuclear weapons.

Most experts estimate that Israel has about 200 nuclear warheads posing a great threat to global security.

The former ISI chief concluded that the recent US and NATO decision to send thousands of additional troops to Afghanistan is meant to counter the ever-increasing Iranian influence in the region.

US President Barack Obama vowed 30,000; British Prime Minister Gordon Brown pledged 500; and their NATO allies committed 5,000 more troops to end the almost nine-year-old war in Afghanistan, adding that they would start a partial withdrawal in July 2011.

    This guy is basically talking about a larger war between the Muslims and Jew-Christians.

    And he is correct, the world is being pushed towards that direction, by the religious fanatics like Hamid Gul, that are dreaming of an Islamic Cliphet ruling the world.

    That lunatic dream is going to cost the followers of Islam dearly, in the years to come.
