“”Former Cold War-era rivals Pakistan and Russia are due to hold their first ever military exercise this month, Pakistan’s military said on Friday, in another sign of shifting alliances in South Asia.
During the Cold War, Pakistan spent a decade helping the United States funnel arms and fighters into neighboring Afghanistan to help insurgent groups fight Soviet soldiers following their 1979 invasion of Afghanistan.
At the time, the communist Soviet Union was closely aligned with Pakistan’s arch-enemy India, while the United States was a staunch supporter of Pakistan.
Pakistan’s top military spokesman, Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa, said a “contingent of Russian ground forces” arrived in Pakistan for a two-week exercise beginning on Saturday
About 200 military personnel from both sides would be involved in the exercises, Pakistan’s Tribune Express newspaper said, citing military sources”.
Once upon a time , just to withhold Russian army away from our borders was prime task of Pakistani establishment .They successfully brainwashed orthodox groups and narrow minded public of Pakistan that infidel Red army was major threat to Pakistan’s islamic ideology .For countering Reds in Afghanistan, they established joint ventures with christian military groups,(american army, CIA,MI etc.) collected unaccountable jihadis from Pukhtoon belts,mesmerized thousands of soldiers of Pakistan army with tunes of islamic jiahdi bells,used human brains and bodies from the Afghan refugees camps settled in Pakistani areas .All these above mentioned ingredients this cocktail was made and successfully poured on Pak afghan border to halt this red force which is now being fully honored and welcomed in Pakistani soil with full military backup.People are now watching joint military exercises of reds and greens in Pakistani soil .This was same army that was once thoroughly explained and acclaimed as extreme danger to Pakistan in our history pages. Millions who died or suffered because of this Afghan war should have been thinking while living in dead or live state that Friendship has always an edge on deadly enmity.WARS of Pakistan had raised the financial status of war industry in western and american soil, Made few hundreds people richest in our side ,turned zero caliber political or religious workers into national scale leaders but put our country in lowest rank of human development.Greens have been put in queue of international terrorists. Green passports have lost its reputation in international community and now we are thinking to welcome Reds in our house whole heartily.
…..Ameer khusrroo explains this magic
Ek guni nay yeh gun keena,
Hariyal pinjray mein dedeena;
Dekho jadoogar ka kamaal,
Daalay hara, nikaalay laal.
One trickster performed this trick,
Inserted a (green) parrot into the cage;
Oh, what an act the sorcerer shows,
Puts in green, takes out red !
