Umm....wrong tree. I didn't say either of those.
First, you are taking sides between a raggedy bunch of rebels who have missiles and keep firing them off in all directions; if they land one in the wrong place, I wonder what the shape of the world will be. Even the Iranians will distance themselves from the scene of that crime, in less than a nano-second. As it is, I am amazed that they haven't tried to stop this very dangerous stu
Second, you have enough problems of your own. With an anti-Muslim administration on your east, and an anti-Pakistan administration on your west, with allies and supporters who, in the east, have gained you what some members - at least one on this forum - steadfastly refuse to acknowledge, a bad reputation in many parts of the world (ironic in view of @Scorpion having said what he did about the good effects of having a friend who can speak for the country in circles that matter), and who, in the west, have earned you the active displeasure of the strongest military force in the world; with a failed economy that Mastan Khan on another forum feels needs KSA to put up large sums of money so that the rest of the country can be safely ignored, and the conventional forces built up sufficiently for an amphibious landing on the Konkan coast - I mean, do I have to go on?
Third, you are actively buying Iranian displeasure, and driving them more forcefully into the ranks of those who don't like you very much. It could matter.
Fourth, you are ringing alarm bells in circles that have been cozying up to the same countries who are inviting you over. It now seems that all the fuss and feathers was carefully organised to soften this impact, and it will have a definite impact in those already less than friendly places, a bad impact, one that will deepen and intensify whatever ill feeling exists, and extend it to cover your friends as well.
Of course, it is no consolation to us that you are not intervening in the affairs of a non-Muslim country. @Scorpion has spelt out the implications of that very, very clearly. From our point of view, the OIC huffing and puffing and threatening to blow our house down is one thing; an active military ally of the KSA is quite another. That carries with it a lot more, many of the Gulf states, Jordan, for sure; who else is not sure, but whoever it is, that is not good news for a Modi-governed India. At the same time, it is not incentive for throwing out Modi; instead, it will strengthen his position for India to discover that Muslim states are actively involved with Pakistan in a military alliance.
Iranian displeasure, bad name in the world, Eastern anti Muslim administration and Anti Pakistan Administration on the West ........ these all are realities, they already exist ......... no matter how much we try making others happy, they are not listening because we are sissies who fail to take bold decisions and tell everyone to mind their own business, can't have relations with Saudi ..... why because Iranians feel insecure ...... great strategy .... did Iran think twice can't have relations with India because Pakistanis feel insecure?
If Iranians have no problems meddling everywhere in the Muslim world ........ and having relations with other countries without taking into account sensitivities and emotions of Pakistanis .......... why should Pakistan care about them? Its business ...... ain't it?
Saudi Arabia is more important in any aspect than Iran ....... be it religious value, be it strong friend, be it a wealthy resourceful ally ... what does Iran have to offer? Saving us from sectarian problem only?
Suppose if Saudi Arab asks India for military advisors and trainers ........ would India think about Iran? or any other country? And if this time Pakistan fucks up I hope Saudis ask India and treat Pakistanis like they deserve to be treated because of their impotence and cowardice. UAE lighting Burj Khalifa in Indian tricolor makes Pakistanis go gaga and start Arab bashing .... but they don't understand that constant sectarian sh*t being played by Pakistani politicians is making Pakistan's case weak day by day ...... Saudis aren't begging you ..... they have the capability to hire the best resources. Can Chinese ignore Saudis? Can US ignore Saudis? Doesn't Israel want normal relations with Saudis? Can Russia directly threaten Saudis? .......... the cost to please Iranians so they can have a sectarian orgasm at expense of Pakistan's weakening position day by day ....... is enough to isolate us ....... Chinese are not brothers they are friends and a strong ally ..... with benefits, we offer something of interest, they return the favor ........ we need to realise ..... someday we would need to lock Chinese in a situation where they can't blackmail you.
It is time for Pakistan to expand the global reach, we have the manpower, the experience ........ just play the cards right.
