Trump may sow seeds for another 9/11

'History will repeat itself after a decade or so and historians will point to the folly of May 2017 as the event that sowed the seeds of another 9/11,' warns Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). With United States President Donald Trump's arrival in Saudi Arabia, the US expects to kick start an anti-Iran coalition. In Saudi Arabia, Trump will meet with 56 leaders of Sunni Muslim countries who have gathered in Riyadh. The conference marks the formation of a Sunni Muslim NATO, with a combined military ...

Going to the ICJ was a blunder

'There are thousand ways to pressure Pakistan to make it behave.''Going to the ICJ was the worst possible option,' says Colonel Anil A Athale. Any student of history knows the disaster India courted when then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru took the Kashmir issue to the United Nations. Seventy years after that event, we continue to suffer the consequences of that folly. Kashmir is the only secessionist movement that is on the UN agenda. The issues of Tibet, separatism on Mindanao island in the ...

Can Pakistan do a 'Bangladesh' in Kashmir?

'The Pakistan army feels it can inflict a similar defeat on India in Kashmir and make it "India's Bangladesh".''But comparing Bangladesh of 1971 with the Kashmir valley of 2017 is like equating chalk and cheese!' warns Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). On May 3, during a border skirmish, Pakistani troops and jihadi elements killed two Indian soldiers in the Nangi tekdi area of Krishna ghati near Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir. As has happened earlier as well, the Pakistanis then carried out a ritual ...

For the thuggish Naxalites, revolution is a pretence

'The Naxalite strategy is to periodically attack police forces to provoke a reaction.''Once the security forces over-react and cause suffering to innocents by high-handed actions, the people will be alienated and support the revolution.''This appears to be the Naxalites' strategy and hence, their recent brutal killings of policemen,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd).

100 days of Trump: The good and the bad for India

'The domination of American foreign policy by the military poses some hidden dangers for us.''We must factor in that the Pakistani military and the US military have close ties going back three generations.''Pakistan will find sympathetic ears in the Pentagon against India as the bogey man.''This will be further milked to the maximum by raising the ante in Kashmir through its proxies,' warns Colonel Anil A Athale. 100 days of Trump: The method in his madness IMAGE: US National Security ...

Soul of the army and spirit of the nation

'The vocal pacifists who monopolise the media in India need to answer a simple question: Would they have the Taliban or ISIS take over Kashmir or the rest of the country or let the army do its duty so that we are safe in our beds and free to demonise the soldiers in our cozy drawing rooms and television studios,' asks Colonel Anil A Athale (retd).

Kashmir is stuck in a time warp

Both the separatists in the Valley and the Indian establishment have failed to fathom that the world's alignments have changed, writes Col Dr Anil Athale (retired). The situation in Kashmir in 2017 is a classic example of both sides being trapped in a time warp. The trouble in Kashmir is now confined to a few districts in the valley, while the rest of Jammu and Kashmir is unaffected. Yet, the separatists, led by the Hurriyat and Pakistan, never tire of talking of the whole of Jammu and ...
