Afghanistan End Game: Pakistan’s Little Great Game - I
By Dr Mohammad Taqi

“When everyone is dead, the Great Game is finished. Not before” — Rudyard Kipling in Kim. Every single one of the so-called players on the grand chessboard that has partaken in sowing the winds of death in Afghanistan has reaped the whirlwind. But they will not stop, especially not the Pakistani security establishment as it still looks for a hand to play in the endgame in Afghanistan. The Pakistani security establishment would have the current generation believe that everything was hunky-dory as far as Pakistan’s policy vis-à-vis Afghanistan went, before the Soviet bear and then the big bad American wolves descended on Afghanistan and therefore if somehow the status quo ante was restored, things will be back to that imaginary normal again. --Dr Mohammad Taqi
