We are the problem – and the West is trying is to help us!


How much we burden the West? (Cartoon by Matt Wuerker).

How much we burden the West? (Cartoon by Matt Wuerker).

The conditions in this part of the world are maddeningly complex. Every country is seeking to exert influence on every other country. All the countries in the region share borders with each other. Anyone who considers Afghanistan must also consider Pakistan, because the Pakistani military and intelligence service are determined to exert their influence in Kabul when the Americans withdraw.

Anyone who considers Pakistan certainly has to take India into account, because of the mutual paranoia that the two countries share. Anyone who considers neighboring Iran cannot forget the country’s conflict with the United States over its nuclear program. Iran, for its part, suspects that the United States could use its bases in Afghanistan for conventional attacks after a nuclear strike. And if the United States decides to remain in Afghanistan for longer than anticipated, neither China nor Russia will be amused.

Western intervention – benign and beneficial!

Western narratives aboutdeadly ethnic and religious tensions’ bit in the Indian region is again a case of selective amnesia.

Would they like to trace the role of US and its client, named Pakistan, in the religious tensions that India manages today?

Would they like to account for the US$ 3 billion that Indian NGOs receive each year – mostly from the West. These NGOs mostly, are a cover for proselytization or worse still, some of them are fronts for subverting or influencing Indian public agenda.

Of course, the West is only a dis-interested observer – in fact a reluctant, detached and dis-interested observer.
