Tough Kayani Warns Proponents Of ‘Adventurism’

Pakistan can fire missiles at only 10 minutes’ notice on all Indian cities: General. Kayani

The Chief of Army Staff, Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, said on Friday that peace and stability in South Asia (and beyond) was the logical and fundamental principle underlining the security paradigm of Pakistan. Addressing senior officers at the General Headquarters here, Gen Kayani said that the army was alive to the full spectrum of threat that continued to exist both in conventional and unconventional domains.

He said that Pakistan Army stood committed and prepared to respond to any existing, potential or emerging threat. An army supported by 170 million people, with faith in Allah, is a formidable force to be reckoned with. “Proponents of conventional application of military forces, in a nuclear overhang, are chartering an adventurous and dangerous path, the consequences of which could be both unintended and uncontrollable,” he said.

He said Pakistan was not oblivious to the unprecedented acquisition of sophisticated military hardware, synergised with an offensive military doctrine. However, as a responsible nuclear state, Pakistan army would contribute to strategic stability and strategic restraint as per the stated policy of the government.

He said peace and stability in South Asia was the logical and fundamental principle underlining the security calculus of Pakistan.
The recent statement by Indian Army Chief Gen Kapoor about the two-front war strategy on which India was at present working, targeting China and Pakistan, had sent shock-waves among those aspiring for peace and stability in the region.

Commenting on Gen Kayani’s observation, a defense analyst observed that India had to be reminded from time to time that Pakistan was a nuclear power, fully capable of deterring any external aggression.

He pointed out that Pakistan could fire missiles at only 10 minutes’ notice on all Indian cities.

Pakistan is the fourth country in the world possessing cruise missiles which are considered to be capable of accurately hitting targets in India.

The maximum range of Indian missiles is 1500 kilometers while Pakistan’s Shaheen has a range of 3500 kilometers.

  1. India and Pakistan faught four wars in the past, including Kargil, the results of which are well documented.

    But the next war will not be faught too soon. Now is the time for Pakistan to burn in its own fire.

    The big stick on Pakistan may come a decade later when the gulf between India and Pakistan will be overwhelming… !

    Notwithstanding all the warnings and counter-warnings, the result of any future war is a foregone conclusion… !

  2. The barking dogs seldom bite! There is a wisdom in silence, General Kyani has to learn. Perhaps the Indian Commander would not allow him ten minutes, why does’nt he fire the missiles now while he has all the time. but please make sure that they are armed and do not boomerang!

  4. you must understand that Gen Kayani is a serious person who speaks when required, not like kapoor who is speaking of a plans which cannot/cannever be excuted.
    if india is so strong then why india ran into UN in 48 and to Russia in 65 and to Israeli(support) in kargil??????
    if india is so powerful to engage both the fronts then why there is a worry in indian diplomats regarding frequent chinese border voilations???????????
