I received this impassioned email from a student who is perturbed by the opposition to the infamous drone attacks in Pakistani territory. At PTH we are not taking sides on drone attacks – this is after all a complex issue – but we do think that Pakistan’s sovereignty should be above all considerations. However, I am posting Sehar’s views as they reflect the anxiety of the younger generation as well as its engagement with the current issues negating the myth that our youth is all but ‘political’.

1.Can you imagine the psychological aspect of these drone attacks on terrorists .Constant fear , spy terror, cannot move openly , cannot gather in house, cannot run training camps as drone are there to watch them .They have made terrorists ‘ Mentally Diseased patients and they trust nobody – not even their closest friends these days. In daytime and specially at night when even their close buddy/relative/chum throw a small micro-chip wrapped in cigarette piece at house and as soon the Drone receives GPS signal , shoots missile to send them to enjoy 72 hoors in ‘Jananat-ul-Firdous ‘ who tear the bodies of innocents in suicidal attacks and have virtually collapsed Pakistan economy bringing its GDP to 2% and bringing the business icons like Marriott Islamabad and Pearl Continental Peshawar ( All UNO staff ran away after this attack while they were only working for the welfare of IDPs) . Pakistan is facing the biggest brain drain , immigration to Canada, UK , US , no business investment, tourism, hotel industry virtually closed.
2. The most dangerous weapon of the world , with its simulation and strike time even less than 3 sec .As high resolution night vision camera photiographs the terrorists and GPS micro-chip give signal , shoots missile . Number of Top Al-Qaeda including 2 black Tanzania terrorists who planned Marriot Attack and Lashkra-i-Jhangvi coordinated filling the loader from Jhang via GT Road to Islamabad.Al-Libi who died a year ago , many Afghan and Mehsud tribal terrorists specially the recent most marvellous attack killing the epicentre of terrorism in Pakistan, Baithullah Mehsood.
3. A year ago when Baithullah was claimed to be dead , Mulla Ammer-ul-Heroin who is doing Jihaad by throwing Acid and Poisonous gas on Primary Schools Girls in Kandhar and Poppy/heroin , ransom , bank looting Jihad against US said that ” Baithullah is absolutely right and safe. A day ago Mulla Sangeen , commander of Afghanistani Taliban said that ” Baithullah has met him yesterday.He is safe. Can anybody tell me why these Afghani Talibans are so touchy about Baithullah.Just because he is implementing thier agenda to break Pakistan, establish Islamic Emirate of Wazirstan and Swat , blast all girl schools or even throw acisd on school girls or women going to bazars.
4. Why we not understand this fact which even blind can see Al-Qaeda , Afghan Talibans and Pakistan Talibans are 100% on board and co-operating with each other to implemnt thir Neo-Khwarij Kufr Ideology in which Shias are Kafirs and it is a great reward to burn them alive or cut thier body parts as happened a year ago in Parachinar which is adjacnet to Afghan boarder.These 3 groups dont believe in international borders and want to change Pakistan what they did with Afghanitan in 1996-2001 bringing to cave-era version and kill 8000 Hazara Shias in just 48 hours in 1996 including women and innocent children
ParaChinar where Kuttai Zaleel Haiwaan did this
In Iraq where they today killed 48 innocents
5.The same they are doing in Pakistan from 1996 when Mulla Omer opened 3 training camps for Lashkara-i-Jhangvi and Riaz Basra , themselves killed 8000 shias in Herat and Hazara .Wahabi Al-Qaeda , Lashkrai-Jhanvi , TTP , Afghani Talibans all are unanimous whether doing it in Pakistan/Iraq/Afghanistan
6.All those who negate Drone Attacks should go Afghanistan/Iraq .Its our country Pakistan and as a youth representative of my all class-fellows in University , We Fully support Drone Attacks of US .US is not our friend but these Kuttai Barbarians are worst enemy of Pakistan and have virtually broken it economically.Drones are the most dangerous and accurate weapon and it has broken the backbone of Al-Qaeda and TTP. Just read below and you will agree with me.All those who are against Drones like Hamid Mir ,Irfan Siddiqui ,Ansar Abbasi and Co. should leave Pakistan and go to “Shiekh” Osama and TTP etc. Its our country and we don’t need such enemies who indirectly support Worst Enemies of Pakistan
That Great News , first time Al-Qaeda terrorists are claiming success of spy ( ISI and tribal brave people who are doing and throwing micro-chips to top leadership houses and secret caves at expense of thier own life.Some are also killed brutally by Al-Qaeda when they exposed)
Thats a great News.Technology on the move.The most dangerous weapon with simulation and strike time less that 3 sec.At the moment the high resolution camera captures pictures or receives GPS signals from Chip, immediately shoots misile and sent them to ‘Janat-ul-Firdos ‘

DUBAI: A new book published by Al Qaeda shows that the terrorist group is under intense pressure and in “deathly fear” of U.S. counterterrorism efforts in Pakistan, terror experts say.
The 150-page book, titled “Guide to the Laws Regarding Muslim Spies,” was recently posted on jihadist Web sites. It was written by a senior Al Qaeda commander, Abu Yahya Al-Libi, and features an introduction by Ayman Al-Zawahri, the No. 2 man in Al Qaeda.
The book accuses some in Al Qaeda’s ranks of being spies who provide intelligence, including information about Al Qaeda camps and safe houses, to U.S. forces. According to the book, these “Muslim spies” have allowed the U.S. to use its Predator drone campaign to paralyze Al Qaeda leadership.
“It would be no exaggeration to say that the first line in the raging Crusader campaign waged by America and its allies against the Muslims and their lands is the network of spies, of various and sundry sorts and kinds,” says the book, translated by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI
“Their effects are seen: carnage, destruction, arrest, and pursuit, but they themselves remain unseen, just like Satan and his ilk who see us while remaining unseen.”
Terror experts have called the book unique in its weak and worried tone.
“I haven’t ever seen this kind of language from senior Al Qaeda commanders before,” said Daniel Lev, who works for MEMRI. “In general, Al Qaeda speaks in a very triumphant tone,” but in the new book Al-Libi speaks of the group’s dire straits and serious problems, Lev added.
“Such an admission of distress on the part of a senior Al Qaeda commander makes this a very unique book in terms of the author.”
“They are in deathly fear of airpower,” said McInerny, a retired lieutenant general in the U.S. Air Force. “Whether it’s unmanned drones or whether it’s fighters or bombers using precision weapons, they are deathly afraid.”
The books also displays a deep-seated paranoia of hidden enemies, according to MEMRI. It claims that anyone — from the old and infirm to the imam of a mosque — could be a U.S. spy.
“The danger of these spies lies not only in the ability of these hidden ‘brigades’ to infiltrate and reach to the depths,” the book says.
“They include the decrepit, hunchbacked old man who can hardly walk two steps; the strong young man who can cover the length and breadth of the land; the infirm woman sitting in the depths of her house; the young woman whose veins still flow with youth; and even perhaps the prepubescent adolescent who has not reached the age of legal maturity [in Islam].”
Lev, of MEMRI, said that the group’s suspicions could be used as an excuse to conduct a purge, which could further harm the Al Qaeda’s stature in Pakistan.
“In the situation that they’re in, they’re entirely dependent on the natives, on the Pakistanis and the Afghans, and they definitely do not want to be facing a situation like Al Qaeda in Iraq, where you have the tribes turning on you,” he said
“That can be the beginning of the end.”
