On April 11, the website published 180 articles by author Amin Qamouriah in which he explained the policies of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, particularly with China, and how these policies angered the military and America, prompting them to focus on the overthrow of Imran Khan We show the following from the article.

The musical chairs game takes place again in Pakistan. This time, Prime Minister Imran Khan fell after he withdrew confidence in the House of Representatives and was replaced by opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif after a week-long constitutional crisis.
This is how the game has been in the “Pure Land” since its separation from India in 1947. Rarely has a head of government been able to complete his term in a difficult country in which the military and civilian sides have shared history over his short-lived power. the supremacy in the decision of its foreign policy.

Usually the ousted or sacked president is quick to accuse and blame the “foreign conspiracy”, but the world cricketer was the only one among his ousted predecessors who dared to directly blame America and the opposition as a “to designate agent”. of the Americans. ” Perhaps because he is braver than those who preceded him on this path, and perhaps also because he is urgent in political work and does not master his games and maneuvers and the danger of such accusations, at least with regard to the Pakistani army, which has the ninth nuclear power in the world, representing the “establishment” and “the state within the state.” And he’s more aware than others of the dangers of playing with the Americans on fire, and of joining an anti-Washington camp at an exceptional stage that the world is going through today. So what about him whose great generals are still living the repercussions of the events of September 11, 2001, which almost led Pakistan to a fate similar to the fate of Afghanistan and Iraq, if they were not aware of the seriousness not, and still is, of the situation at the crucial moments.

Imran Khan would not have reached the pinnacle of power without the support of the military, given the hardline Pakistani politics rooted in money, power and society. But the army, which until recently seemed neutral in the constitutional crisis, was implicitly angry with the ousted prime minister as he extended to the current Pakistani army commander without referring to him as required by the usual protocols, which is an indication given that Khan wants to be independent About the military, anger has doubled his clear and explicit support for the Taliban movement, his refusal to use Pakistan’s military and security capabilities to fight the Taliban, and his response to US threats to aid his stop land by chasing more. to China, the nerve-wracking state.

China has a full story with Imran Khan, and this is what the Pakistani army is most concerned about, because the development of the relationship between Islamabad and Beijing is a “US red line.” Perhaps one of the most prominent features of this “line” is US President Joe Biden’s repeated refusal to answer and communicate with the phone calls of Pakistani official Imran Khan, with all the negative consequences it implies on the weak and shaky Pakistani economy, which according to the Pakistani army and opposition circles urgently needs support which is currently only available from the West and especially from America. Indeed, inflation, the rise in the prices of basic materials, and the collapse of the exchange rate of the “Pakistani rupee” were the main slogans raised by the opposition, of all shades, to undermine Imran Khan and his government.

The government of the “Instance Movement” led by Imran Khan, has made great economic progress towards China, contrary to the desire of the military, which seeks to draw a tight line between Washington and Beijing, and to carefully balance between the two parties. On the one hand, he wants to continue the traditional alliance with China in the face of his arch-neighbor. India, on the other hand, is aware of the need for technology, economic assistance and quality training in which it is dependent on the West. In each case, they have seized it, despite obstacles we can scarcely imagine. “
But the jewel in the crown in Pakistani-Chinese cooperation was the project to build the port of Godar and his city on the Pakistani coast of the Arabian Sea, which is not only a strong competitor to the Emirati, Indian and Iranian ports , but also the main node in the Chinese “Belt and Road” project. This will accelerate China’s ownership and position on the throne of the largest global economic power, and will be seen as a strong blow to American influence in the region and a strong transfer of Chinese influence.
Consequently, this project ignited the regional conflict, with the United States allying itself with India and the UAE, while its Russian rival intervened to support China and Pakistan. It is therefore not surprising that the US has drawn attention to the Pakistani sponsor of the project and an attempt to overthrow it with local tools in the hope of demolishing the port of Gwadar before its construction and expansion is completed. .

In addition to Imran Khan’s views in support of the Palestinian cause and his refusal to house US military bases, which accelerated the process of his overthrow, was the famous photo he collected with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the day Moscow its massive military operation in Ukraine, which emphasizes Islamabad in the position of an ally and supporter of Russia in contradiction This is evident with the desire of the Pakistani army on the one hand and Washington, of course, on the other.
The Pakistani military leadership has a rich and reciprocal historical record with the Russian army since the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and Islamabad’s support for the mujahideen against this occupation in the 1970s and 1980s. The Pakistani army also cannot approve of the major military agreements that Moscow has concluded with its rival, the Indian army. This is what the influential army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, urged to break his silence regarding the prime minister’s positions. He criticized the Russian attack on Ukraine in a speech to an international security dialogue in Islamabad and described it as’ a “great tragedy,” before emphasizing his country’s good relations with Washington.
What worries Pakistan’s military and political circles is that Imran Khan’s policies will lead to a rift with the West, which goes east and north and falls into the arms of the Russian-Chinese alliance, undergoing profound transformations in various areas of Pakistani politics. , economic, military and social life.

Therefore, opponents of Imran Khan do not cease to recall that the Pakistani economy is highly dependent on the support of international financial institutions dominated by these Western powers, especially the United States, while most of Pakistan’s exports to the markets of the United States is going. (20 percent) and the European Union (28 percent) and the United Kingdom (about 8 percent). In contrast, China’s share of exports remains less than 10 percent, while Russian markets absorb only about 1 percent of Pakistani exports.
