News has come that the Pakistanis and the Afghans are fighting each other. These fools should be helping each other instead of fighting. Both are poor; their real enemy is poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, price rise, lack of healthcare and good education, etc. If they had any sense they should join hands, pool their resources, and launch a mighty historical united struggle, along with Indians, to eliminate these real common enemies.

Instead they are at each other’s throats.

I have explained in my articles, and in this video that it is the developed countries that make us fight each other, so that our region does not emerge as a modern industrial giant, like another China (of which it has all the potential) and thus a big rival to Western and Chinese industries.

In other words, these developed countries pursue the divide and rule policy vis-a-vis the underdeveloped countries, and make us fight each other, and commit atrocities on minorities in our own countries.

But like a puppeteer, these developed countries are not visible to the audience, who think the puppets are moving about on their own volition, when in fact they are being manipulated by the hidden puppeteer.

War is expensive, and underdeveloped countries have to buy weapons at huge cost from foreign arms manufacturers. This money should instead be spent on the welfare of our people. It is high time that people of the Indian subcontinent and other neighboring countries like Afghanistan realize who is their real enemy, stop fighting with each other, unite, and launch a mighty historical people’s struggle for their real emancipation from poverty, unemployment and other socio-economic evils.
