Former US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who spent decades dealing with Pakistan’s military leadership, writes in his new book ‘Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead’ that Pakistan, due to its nuclear capabilities, poor governance and extremism increasingly, the most dangerous country in the world.

After the attacks of September 11, 2001 in the United States, Jim Mattis led the United States forces in Afghanistan. In his book he writes that the people of Pakistan are facing a double tragedy that on the one hand they do not have leaders who care about the future of the country and on the other hand as a society they are so selfish, ignorant. and poorly educated They are convinced that nothing good is happening to them.

The 68-year-old US defense secretary, who resigned last year, claims that Pakistan’s political culture is speeding the country towards destruction.

Pakistan was a country that did not care about itself from day one. Progress and individual self-interest were the main motivating factors from the outset and the country’s political culture tended to be one that was completely detrimental to the country.’ He expressed these views in the context that everyone in the country is working for their own benefit only at the cost of general improvement and the loss of the state.

Of all the countries I have worked with, Pakistan is the most dangerous and the main reasons for this danger include extremist thinking, lack of education and critical thinking in society and the presence of nuclear weapons in the country. And along with them, the factor of a very narrow minded religious bias is also included in these reasons.

Control of the world’s rapidly growing nuclear arsenal cannot be left in the hands of terrorists who thrive in Pakistan. He further warned that the consequences for the whole world would be catastrophic.

The tragedy of the Pakistani people is that they do not have leaders who care about their future. An example of the lack of trust in bilateral relations is when we were sure we had identified the location inside Pakistan where Osama bin Laden was hiding, US President Barack Obama killed Osama bin Laden without telling the Pakistanis send a team to kill, because of their collusion (Pakistanis) and their double dealing’. In his book, Mr. Mattis has written about the changes he introduced in the communication system in Afghanistan when he was head of the US Central Command.

‘I was concerned that more than 70 per cent of NATO’s supply of goods depended on a route that went through unstable and cash-starved Pakistan. I looked at the map and decided that the chessboard needed a few quick changes.’

Mr Mattis writes that General John Allen, who replaced Dave Petraeus as NATO commander in Afghanistan in September 2011, issued a warning to the Pakistani army.

He said he had learned that the ‘terrorist’ Haqqani network, hiding in Pakistan, was preparing a massive truck bomb. Pakistan Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said he would take action in this regard, but he did nothing.

He writes; Two days later, that bomb exploded in an American base near Kabul, killing five Afghan civilians and injuring 77 American soldiers. A few days after this incident, the ‘terrorist’ Haqqani network attacked our embassy in Kabul.

At the same time, at a diplomatic event in Washington, Mr Matts ran into the Pakistani ambassador to the US at the time, Hussain Haqqani, and openly rebuked him.

The headquarters of the Pakistan Army Division is in the same city where the terrorists are headquartered. You say you are not with the terrorists and now they have attacked our embassy in a coordinated operation across the border from Pakistan. You are supporting people who will kill you one day too.’

Citing his bitter experience dealing with Pakistan’s top military leadership, Mr Mattis wrote that he had come to the conclusion that America’s military relationship with Pakistan could only be based on transactions focused on the current specific Recognizing the problem and to base on both sides offering what they can do to help each other.

‘Take something, give something. Pakistan could have chosen not to be our enemy, but it chose not to be a reliable friend or ally of the US or NATO.’ And the reason for this is their erroneous ideas, full of mistakes and an extreme view of life.

“As a result, it was in our mutual interest to develop a careful and deliberate relationship with Pakistan with modest expectations of cooperation, paying in small installments and getting them to do what we wanted them to do in return. We could solve our problems with Pakistan but there were many obstacles in the way of solving them; The division between us was too deep, the differences too great and the trust too low. And even today our relationship with Pakistan stands at the same place.
