@Nida Alvi: Good to see a press release from Army that suits its professional stature! The institution of Army should never let itself taken hostage by a few vested interest loser politicians (backed by certain retired & serving officers) who have been trying to drag Army into their nefarious design. Don't forget that Musharraf returned to Pakistan as Chairman of his political party-APML, when so many of his former Ministers of PMLQ (Sheikh Rasheed, Pervaiz Elahi, Chaudhry Shujat etc) defected him after enjoying perks & privileges during his Dictatorship.

Messy land war and almost no information - in fact Pakistani's have a better understanding of what's happening in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine than they have in their own country - that says it all.
