Zardari-Gilani out-foxed the Indian leadership

Like it or not, Pakistani leadership has out-maneuvered the entire political establishment in India. Pakistan used the age old doctrine of “offense is the best defense” against India after the slaughter of 26/11 in Bombay, India. President Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan fumbled in the first few hours of the tragedy in Bombay but within 12 hours Pakistani Military and their civilian leadership were on the same page. By the time India could recover from the well coordinated military-style commando raid on its financial capital, Pakistan launched an even more sophisticated diplomatic onslaught. It made India look like a belligerent aggressor! This is called diplomacy at its best. Compare this to the Indian goof-ups, it is absolutely stunning!

Asif Ali Zardari has shown the resilience of General Ayub Khan and the cunning of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. These two Pakistani politicians managed to steer Pakistan out of near disintegration during 50s through 70s. Zardari shows a fine combination of both Ayub Khan and Z A Bhutto. Unfortunately for Pakistan, the time is running out. India is least of their problem. The terror infrastructure that they have nurtured for the past 30 years will not give Zardari too much time to use his natural skills. Dawood Ibrahim and Lashkar-e-Taiba with the help of Taliban and al-Qaeda plan to take over the country or at least large parts of it for their own enterprise of drugs and crime.

India watches these developments in the neighborhood with no concept of dealing with this growing menace. Dr Manmohan Singh will go down in the Indian history as the most incompetent Prime Minister of India in 60 years. Sonia Gandhi has obviously learnt nothing from Indira Gandhi except for equally bad Hindi. External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Defense Minister A K Anthony should be selling ‘pani puri’ and ‘ragda patties’ outside the Churchgate Station in Bombay. Just like R R Patil, Narayan Rane and Chhagan Bhujbal are now selling ‘chana bhatura’ across the road. All five are midgets and talk like jokers. While Pakistan plays a skillful diplomatic game, the Indian political leadership is complaining to the US, China and Saudi Arabia.

Does India look like an emerging power to you? If these clowns are re-elected next year, India would be fighting for survival, forget about rising. 80 years old Advani may not be very appealing but he is not going to let India be humiliated by a failed state! The government of Maharashtra should be prosecuted by Soli Sorabjee on behalf of the victims of Bombay terror attacks on 26/11 for gross negligence and failing to protect their citizens. This was a criminal delineation of duty. The State of Maharashtra misused the funds meant for the up gradation of equipment for Bombay Police and purchased sub-standard bullet-proof vests for the force. This is a very serious crime and the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Vilasrao Deshmukh and his deputy R R Patil who was also the Home Minister of Maharashtra along with the Bombay Police Commissioner should all go to jail for this. Indian citizens must do their solemn civic duty and vote these criminals out of power forever.
