Former US defence secretary James Mattis has stated he considers Pakistan as the “most dangerous country.”
he bought with it in a long occupation crossing decades in the army and as a part of President Donald Trump’s administration, because of the level of radicalization of its history and its atomic weapons.
Mattis, who left the Trump presidency in January, also slammed Pakistan’s fascination with India, declaring it “views all geopolitics through the prism of its hatred toward India.”
become their policy on Afghanistan “the Pakistan army wanted a friendly government in Kabul that was contrary to Indian influence”.
He has significant years of experience dealing with Pakistan and South Asia, 1st as a top US Marine Corps commander in Afghanistan, head of US central command and then as secretary of defence.
“Of all the countries I’ve traded with, I think Pakistan to be the most dangerous, because of the radicalization of its community and the availability of nuclear weapons,” Mattis has written in “Call Sign Chaos”, a life that hit the stages Tuesday. “We can’t have the fastest-growing atomic magazine in the world coming into the hands of the terrorists growing in their midst. The result would be harmful.”
Pakistan has the world’s fastest-growing nuclear arsenal, with a large number of tactical weapons that its leaders have openly boasted about,
including a member of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cabinet newly.
And Mattis writes, repeating a longstanding US concern, “We can’t have the fastest-growing nuclear stockpile in the world falling into the hands of the rebels breeding in their midst.”
He moved on to punish Pakistani leaders, in an oblique comment on the modern Imran Khan government, stating “they don’t have leaders who care about their future”.
Mattis also framed US-Pakistan relationships as a progressive narrative afflicted by diversity and distrust. “We could manage our difficulties with Pakistan, but our members were too deep, and trust too shallow, to resolve them,” writes.
That was the cause why, Mattis contends, President Barack Obama did not tell Pakistan,

Mattis, a Marine Corps general, was then end of the US central government that has error over American military operations in Pakistan & Afghanistan.
“And that is the state of our connection to this day,” Mattis writes in clear indications for the current efforts by the Khan government to reset ties with the United States by selling the Taliban,
accepting Pakistan’s clout with them, to participate in order reports as President Trump starts to end the Afghanistan war, the largest in US history.
