The following is a collection of comments I have made to shame those who do not join the anti-Droni policies of HIK-PTI (Hazrat Imran Khan of PTI), Chacha Morpheous a.k.a, General Hamid Gul and Pious Punjabi Pasdaran of Lashkar Jhangvi and Lashkar Tayyaba.  I have used these comments to pulverize the liberal fascists that are swarming all over facebook and who critisize Taliban.  FYI, Islamo Marxist organization and FATA chapter of PTI, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has also put these liberal fascists in their place:

Pakistani Taliban join Twitter, threaten rights activists Apparently Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has made a Twitter account (@TehreekeTaliban) for their Jihadi-sectarian propaganda on social media and also to harass their perceived opponents. While we have no means to confirm the genuineness of this account, the tweets so far seem to be consistent with Pakistani Taliban’s ideology and operations (hatred against USA, Pakistan army, Shia Muslims, liberals etc).http://criticalppp.com/archives/74144

Comment 1: I am so inspired by the few Pakistanis who dare to protest against Amriki drones. I am impressed by their even-handed and non-selective approach and have written this for my status: “I am in mourning for the victims of the drone attacks few days back. Hai Baitullah Mehsud, Hai Abu Yazeed, Hai Kashmiri, Hai Yashuldev. These are the Pakistanis who were killed by drones. Yazeed was an Arab Pakistani who had settled in North Waziristan for his venture capitalist business and Tahir Yashuldev was an Uzbek Pakistani who was trading in carpets. They celebrated Diversity day in FATA with fireworks display which Zionist Neocon Imperialists misrepresented as bomb attacks on school girls and Shias”Meera Ji and Fundy Kasuri: you are my heros, just like HIK “Hazrat Imran Khan”.

Comment 2:  Sister Meera G, I am completely sane Muslim man who mantains an all meat diet in deference to my Arab ancestory. I miss no nuances. You are absolutely correct; the Arabs and Uzbek Pakistanis are our guests in FATA and liberal fascists like Farhat Taj and the Amn Tehrik people are just lying fools. I mean what the hell; since when did Pishta Akhrut Pathans know what is good for them. It is only PPP; Patriotic Punjabi Puttars who know whats good for them just like we know whats good for those Sindhi wadera nation and Baloch Sardari nations. Have you seen how dark skinned these people are.

It is essentially, the Shias (Rafzis) of foreign race Parachinaris and Pishta nationalists (who call themselves Pukhtuns) who have occupied FATA and are undermining the soveriegnity of peaceful Arab Pakistanis, Chinese Pakistanis, Uzbek Pakistanis and Chechan Pakistanis. No one has a right to attack these peaceful folks and they should be left to their devices.

Comment 3: To Liberal fascist and those who support Rafzi-Qadian-Hindus in Pakistan: Look only few brave PTI supporters oppose drone attacks. In their camp, there are brave souls like media, patroitic punjabi judiciary, pious punjabi generals, Islamo-Marxist anti-imperialist liberation peace keepers like LeT and LeJ and last but not least, the Patriotic Punjabi Puttars of PTI and PML N. The anti-drone lobby needs your help. In 1945, the brave Nazis were bombed and killed extra-judicially (thanks to Sister MG for this terminology) and no one protested for the massacres of Nazis of Dresden.  In 60 BC, liberal Fascist Spartacus committed extra judicial murders of many pious, Marxist Romans. Liberal fascist Paul Revere incited against extra judicial attacks on British peacekeeper forces in Amrika that were protecting the Tea Trade from the party animals of Boston. Please help in deconstructing Peshawar Declaration of liberal fascist Pishtas which I copy here Peshawar Declaration: The real one by Amn Tehreek, the fake by PTI ( http://criticalppp.com/archives/47109. )HIK is so right; those who talk AGAINST anti daroni policies are Liberal Scum!

    The US isn’t doing its job, it would never allow another country to take action on its soil against its own ppl. You know what an actor carrying out extra-judicial killings in someone territory is called…..terrorism. Lets not mince our words here and hide behind some grand notion of a “war on terror”. While any sane person would agree that there are militants in FATA who have killed far more of our own than the US’ we can’t deny the fact that what the US is doing by carrying on drone strikes in that region constitutes as state-led terrorism. So lets please not be selective in our condemnation of terrorism. Lets condemn it in all its forms be it state-led or vigilante. Violence and murder can never be justified. While one party carries it out in the name of religious jihad the other party carries it out in the name of “national security”. In fact I hold more contempt for states that are meant to uphold law and order, human rights and abide by international laws. You have to hold states to higher standards than non-state actors.
    While the US, Saudi and our agencies helped create this mess, it is ours to solve and our security aparatus abdicates its responsibilities by not tackling with it and passing on the buck allowing third parties to clean it up. While publicly they condemn such attacks and express their outrage, they allow the US to carry out these strikes behind closed door…in fact they ask for more.
    While I mourn for the solders lost yesterday, I mourn more for the civilians that didn’t enlist to fight a war. The civilians that don’t get their right to due process. The innocent that become mere numbers and are deemed as collateral damage.
    So lets all start calling a spade a spade. There are only two sides here, those who carry out atrocities and those that end up dead in the crossfire.

    @Meera Ghani:
    Your argument is so flawed. By that token Pakistani military operations in the FATA are also state-terrorism because they also result in civilian casualties.
    By your own assessment US drone strikes kill Taliban militants who kill more Pakistani innocents than anyone else. They also result in civilian casualties and definitely far far more than drone strikes.
    How can you criticize the US for trying to protect its own people and Afghans from your murderous Taliban if your own security forces won’t do anything – as you yourself admit?

    For a country that loves its oxymorons here’s another one – liberal jihadi.

    The recent debates I’ve been having with various friends has prompted me to write this article. I increasingly find that in Pakistan you’re very easily labelled. We have labels for everything and our favourite pastime is putting labels on everyone. Every single person has to belong to a camp. If you don’t know your camp one will be found for you/assigned to you. In such a situation a liberal is usually left standing high and dry.

    By liberal I mean a person that lacks certitude. A person who is always open to new ideas and thinks critically about things rather than self-righteously sticking to a fixed point of view. A person who stands by their principles without exception. Liberalism is a political philosophy. Liberalism essentially means live and let live.

    Unfortunately in Pakistan being a liberal means something rather different. It’s not about your moral stance on issues or about your political outlook it’s about one’s personal lifestyle choices usually synonymous with a western way of life and “values”. What Fasi Zaka aptly describes as Shabanam liberals. And it’s on the basis of this notion that we are critically judged.

    People often tend to take extreme views- they like to take sides on issues. It’s either the right side or the wrong side. I find that people on the left and right are very similar as far as their standing on issues is concerned. They both argue from a fixed vantage point. Without considering that there may be overlaps and that there may in fact be a middle way. For liberals there are no absolutes. They are forever in the middle no-man’s land, trying to see issues from both perspectives and argue the merits of and demerits of each cased based on principles of freedom and equity and the adherence to rule of law.

    Last week I met Mullana Fazlur Rehman who was in Brussels to attend the Kashmir Centre EU event at the European Parliament. He had been here for a few weeks and had meetings with NATO and has met with a few Parliamentarians. He also took a short trip over to Copenhagen where he met with leaders from Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI). He spoke on a panel along with Mr. Ivo Vajg a Member of the European Parliament, Nasim Zehra renowned Pakistani journalist and presenter and Udit Raj from the Indian Justice Party.

    Knowing what a controversial figure he is I was expecting a lot of hate speech. I thought he would criticize India and the West for their interference in Pakistan and would go into his usual rant about how the muslims were victims worldwide. But he did none of that instead he talked about the need for Pakistan and India to come back to the negotiating table on Kashmir. Given that both the countries were two of the major players in the region they could benefit from mutual trade hence they should forget the past and not let anything get in the way of peace. He talked about how in Kashmir we consider Indian presence and interference but don’t consider the drone strikes by the US Government to be the same. He emphasized the need for political solutions to these conflicts rather than tired and largely failed military one. He talked about the 1000’s that had been killed and the devastation it has caused. The Mullana urged the US to stand by its principles of democracy and peace and called on it to work under the Human Rights Charter and shed its policy of double standards. His main message was that of dialogue and trust building between all stakeholders in order to better Pakistan’s future.

    Now admittedly his message does vary according to his audience, his message for the people back home is considerably different to what he conveyed to the Europeans here in Brussels. However, what I’m going to say is controversial… I agree with most of what he said. I may not use the same narrative to make the point or even have the same motives as he does. But I agree with his stance. To borrow a quote from Bertrand Russell “war does not determine who is right, only who is left”. Now you may call me a Taliban apologist, a closet conservative, or a liberal jihadi but that doesn’t make me one. It’s just like saying that because Osama bin Laden liked bowling and I like bowling it makes me sympathetic to his cause. But sadly that’s the logic most people would apply.

    I strongly disagree with JUI’s politics or what the Mullana has to say on most issues. I was most perturbed by the recent prayers that were offered for Osama Bin Laden by the JUI-F leaders Laiq Muhammad Khan and Atta-ur-Rehman in the Baluchistan Parliament.

    However on the issue of drones I find myself in agreement with him. I fail to understand how we can forsake innumerable innocent lives under the guise of “collateral damage”. We don’t even bat an eyelash before becoming the judge, jury and executioner at the same time. How can anyone claim to support human rights if they endorse drone attack? I find it highly hypocritical. What appals me is how we are can so easily forgo justice and the rule of law. Just because people in Waziristan happen to live in an area rife with militants we are so quick to deny the citizens their rights. I see it as a gross injustice. Many liberal pundits tag everyone who opposes America’s drone attack or policy on war on terror as Anti-West or Anti-America. These are the very people who claim to be the proponents of equal rights and democracy.

    Whenever the topic of drones comes up in Pakistan Farhat Taj and her study for the Aryan Institute are cited. The author claims that the people in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) welcome the drone attacks. However what she fails to mention is the impact these drone attacks have on families who happen to be in areas with “high value targets”. Surveys by the New America Foundation and Terror Free Tomorrow and the Pew Research Centre (Pakistan wide) provide contrary results. There are also many studies that claim that more militants are targeted and the civilian casualties are kept to a minimum due to the sophisticated technology enables them to be very precise. But we hear very little about the report by Campaign for Innocent Victims of Conflict (CIVIC) according to which “It’s almost certain that US drone strikes are causing more civilian casualties than the US has thus far admitted”. The study also talks about how victims stated that militants were indeed killed in the strike, non-combatant civilians were hit collaterally. i.e. a militant car passing by a house that collapsed from the blast. A UN study has dubbed the drones illegal and against International Humanitarian law. I recently read an article by Kathy Kelly the coordinator for Voices for Creative Nonviolence in the Huffington Post where she describes the tragedy of a family that was devastated by one of these drone attacks in December last year. My tears haven’t stopped since I read the piece. We hardly ever hear of the families that have lost all loved ones and have survived only after receiving severe injuries. And how can we forget the drone strike killing a panchayat of 40 people on March 17th, almost the same number of people that were killed in the London 7/7 bombings.

    Sadly what is also seldom mentioned is how easy it has become for countries using the drones to carry out attacks without any casualties of their own. Whenever you talk about people affected by the drone attacks you are always reminded of what the Taliban are doing to the citizen in that region. No one in their sane mind would ever condone their heinous crimes. But are we going to hold non-state actors and terrorists as a standard of our morality?

    Why can’t you be against what the Taliban are doing and everything they stand for and also be opposed to drone attacks being carried out by the US? To me the proponents of violence on both sides have far more in common than the people in the middle who suffer from the consequences.

    For Pakistani’s on both sides of the spectrum everything is a zero-sum game. Everything has a black or white answer. We never bother about exploring the greys. People have an “either you are with us or against us attitude” towards issues. Unfortunately people who explore the greys get targeted from all sides. I just don’t see the world in black and white. One doesn’t have to belong to any one camp….you just need to be open to what others have to say and if you agree with their point of view it should be regardless of what camp they belong to. Liberalism in Pakistan is construed to just take anti conservative stance; people often take positions without having a sound justification for adopting that point of view.

    What saddens me that people don’t have the intellectual and moral honesty to admit that they often forgo their principles. The problem in Pakistan is that most people only take a principled stance when it’s self-serving.

    I vehemently oppose violence and brutality. I condemn what the Taliban and other terrorist groups like Al Qaeeda, Lasheker -e- Taiyaba and Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan are doing for the same reasons I oppose the drone attacks by the US in FATA. Moral consistency requires that we be equally unforgiving in our denunciation of vigilante terrorism and state terrorism despite the intellectual and political challenges it presents. For me the murder of even one innocent civilian is unacceptable whether its state sanctioned for security reasons or in the name of a misguided notion of jihad.

    I think it’s about time we move beyond the politics of left and right. Stop living in camps and come together as a nation to focus on tolerance, compassion, and understanding. We need to find solutions that will enable us to root out extremism and corruption and help us establish a governance system based on merit and social and political justice.

    I feel that the more the drone FATA the more resentment it creates. I dont know how people cant see the link between rise of suicide attacks as the drone attacks increase in the graph above. Its very hard to miss. Drones may not be a cause but they certainly are one of the symptoms that’s leading to this extremist mindset.

    @Carol would you mind sending me more details on the conference in Berlin. I would love to attend it. I think lawsuits against the attacks are a good way forward.

    US #drones are killing innocent civilians. Join the global petition @Avaaz and tell #Obama2012 stop drone murders!

  5. Similar apathy is responsible for many of our citizens considering drones to be the only viable option for dealing with the militants based in the FATA region. Sadly, the citizens of FATA have been condemned to become “collateral damage” in order to ensure safety and security for the rest of Pakistan. Neither do many care about what the citizens in Balochistan have been subjected to for years in the name of “national unity”. Their calls for freedom and right to self-determination are constantly ignored. There is a massacre taking
    place under our very noses but we can’t seem to find to time to speak up. Their rights are not important because some are considered more equal than others. What concerns me is that life itself seems to have no value anymore.
