If Pakistan explodes into civil war, would it make the Syrian civil war look like a joke? Posted on May 9, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor If Pakistan explodes into civil war, would it make the Syrian civil war look like a joke?
>Pakistan arms and houses the Taliban
>Pakistan freaks out when the Taliban start attacking them
What’s going on with them
qrd who is on whos side and why was he arrested
>nothing holding it together besides Islam
>Punjabis are rich and let everyone else starve
>Pashtun want to reunite with Afghanistan and spread terrorism
>Flooding destroyed 1/3rd of the country
>Nation literally bankrupt and begging everyone for money
>Ruled by the military
>Populist civilian leader forced from office and arrested today (he is STUPIDLY popular, citizens defended his house from the cops & military)
Reminder that these guys lost their former largest ethnic group (half of the country's population) because they chimped out and started massacring them when someone from that ethnicity won the elections and was set to become the new leader of Pakistan. Today, they are poorer than Bangladesh, once their poorest province.
To be fair to them they did start treating the other groups marginally better so maybe they're capable of learning lessons, albeit only if something as dramatic as losing half of your country happens.
Unlike Syria, you can guarantee there will be foreign intervention to prop up the Pakistani government to ensure their nuclear stockpile is secure. However, I wouldn't put it past India to try and take advantage of the chaos to secure Kashmir and other disputed border territories.
What's the idea outcome of this? Any nuclear armed country falling into this level of disarray freaks me out
Ideal outcome is that the corrupt Islamic theocracy that controls Pakistan, stays in power. Seriously.
Pakistani government loyal to Khan vs Pakistani military vs Taliban vs India
The ideal outcome? Pakistan and India nuke each other into oblivion with a side helping of nuclear hellfire for China.
It will be pretty damn violent but it won’t last nearly as long since there’s good chances it will just result in balkanization along (sort of) clear borders as opposed to endless political and religious violence.
Pakistani military firing on protestors reportedly
British rule was better
My country did better when the Americans occupied it lol
One day White Man will recognize that decolonization was the cruelest act he ever brought upon these savages
>decolonization was by choice
I would raff just because of the pain it would put china through. They have a hard enough time with Pakistan as it is.
Wonder if international response would be forced due to nooks. Glowies taking silos would be kino
It will make most wars look like a joke
Fuck these assholes. My family left in asylum to America due to the beatings in the street that my parents endured just because they followed a different variation of Islam. I home they wallow in their misery for my ancestor’s sake.
Pakistan has been in civil war since its independence of many varieties.
A full-fledged civil war in Pakistan today is unlikely, and if it did happen it won't be anything like Syria at all.
1. You're not going to have multiple foreign powers carelessly supplying arms or just waltzing in as they like because Pakistan does have nukes, many pilots and a large military.
2. Arab states and Africa are vulnerable to Salafism whereas Af-Pak isn't because traditional Hanafi Sunnism is well-entrenched and spans the spectrum of moderate to extremist thereby leaving no vacuum for Salafi-Revisionists to exploit.
You might see a scenario that's more reminiscent of the current Sudan conflict you have two rival government factions vying for power, and the Baloch and TTP insurgencies operating on the sidelines restricted to their regional interests.
