Paper No. 6338                                     Dated 09-Jan-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

For far too long the United States has borne the strategic weight of Pakistan’s strategic contradictions of pretensions to be a staunch US ally and simultaneously resorting to destabilisation US interests in Afghanistan by terrorism and suicide bombings sponsored by Pakistan Army though its Islamic Jihadi affiliates.

Pakistan Loses Utility in United States Strategic Calculus 2018

Paper No. 6336                                  Dated 03-Jan-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Strategic utility of a smaller nation to that of a major power lies in its credibility, usefulness and loyal effectiveness to serve the national security interests of its strategic patron and that in case of Pakistan seems to have faded as far as the United States is concerned with Pakistan having decidedly opting for the China-Pakistan Axis.

Afghanistan’s Future: The imperatives of United States Resolve

Paper No. 6329                                 Dated 18-Dec-2017

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Afghanistan in no military sense has emerged as United States ‘Second Vietnam’ ; however if the United States wavers in its current resolve to stabilise Afghanistan’s governance and security, then, the China-Pakistan-Russia Trilateral could possibly succeed in making Afghanistan a ‘Second Vietnam’ for United States.

Pakistan Army as a Politically Disruptive Force in Nation-Building

Paper No. 6326                                   Dated 11-Dec-2017

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Pakistan Army having ruled over Pakistan for nearly half its existence since 1947 has no credits to distinguish itself in terms of Pakistan’s nation-building; the contrary is true in that despite its pretentions of being the “Glue that Holds Pakistan Together”, Pakistan as a nation in 2017 is unstuck and dysfunctional.

By Dr Subhash Kapila

United States Strategic Over-Evaluation of Pakistan (Saag Paper No.313 of 11.09.2011) Revisited 2017

Paper No. 6311                                  Dated 16-Oct-2017

By Dr Subhash Kapila

The United States has taken sixteen years down the line and numerous speed-breakers in US-Pakistan relations to realise that Pakistan was not only not delivering on US security interests but also undermining them.
