The high-level intensification of the Hybrid War on Pakistan is intended to damage its target’s international reputation, but might counterproductively raise its soft power profile among its newfound multipolar partners.
The developing Russian-Pakistani Strategic Partnership and the two sides’ strengthening military relations that have come about because of their fast-moving rapprochement in recent years will form an axis of stability in Eurasia during these turbulent times.
The US will only succeed in its quest to indefinitely prolong the unipolar moment if it destabilizes the Central Asian core of Eurasia, which would consequently disrupt the independent rise of the five Great Powers that form the Golden Circle of the Heartland.
If Russia and Pakistan want to enter into a strategic partnership with one another, then they must lay the prerequisite groundwork for harnessing all aspects of their national power in the sustainable fashion. If successful in this ambitious endeavor, it can reinforce the “weak link” of the Great Power triangle and effect tangible geopolitical change in Eurasia.
How come terrorists are allowed to run their organisations from UK and Switzerland? Why is international media quiet on these so-called Baloch leaders who are carrying out terrorist activities in Pakistan while enjoying a luxurious life in Europe?
The articulations from both sides regarding the talks in Moscow on Tuesday suggest that Russia and Pakistan intend to work closely together to coordinate their approaches to the Afghan situation.
The situation is exceptionally dangerous because all four countries involved are nuclear powers, but there are also other tangential consequences relating to the peripheral players of Iran, North Korea, and Japan.
What Pakistan has done is throw Trump’s tweet right back at him by using it as the internationally plausible pretext for initiating this long-planned move that was originally predicated on solely apolitical security-centric domestic interests.
The crisscrossing Great Power networks of the Russian-Chinese Strategic Partnership, the Astana Tripartite (of Russia, Iran, and Turkey), and the fast-moving Russian-Pakistani Rapprochement need to be formally brought together in a single platform.
Pakistan can no longer depend on American developmental assistance nor ever hope to play the US off against China for its ultimate benefit.
The proposed approach is mostly applicable to the third-party role that Russia could play in Pakistan, whereby the cordial competition with China would give Islamabad more options than it has at present.
China would ideally like for India to join its One Belt One Road (OBOR) global vision of New Silk Road connectivity.
