Joint Military Exercises and Seminars are Tools of Imperialist America to achieve her Geo-political Interests

11 October, 2014
Bangladesh Military has jointly hosted the 38th Pacific Armies Management Seminar (PAMS) with the US Army’s Pacific Command in the capital city Dhaka on 14/09/2014. Senior military generals of the thirty two countries have participated in this four-day seminar to exchange their views on various contemporary issues as well as exploring the way forward to combat “international militancy and terrorism” in the Asia-Pacific region. Commander of US Army's Pacific command General Vincent K Brooks has called for cooperation in the US-led “War on Terror,” which all the countries have unanimously agreed on.

Due to the geo-political importance of Bangladesh with a small gateway to the Bay of Bengal, it has become one of the perfect locations for the U.S. to fortify its strategic positioning in South Asia in addition to having its biggest naval base in the Andaman Nicobar islands. Especially after the announcement of the shifting of focus in U.S. foreign policy to South-East Asia by the Obama administration in 2011, Bangladesh with it’s Chittagong sea port has become a place of potential strategic importance for the U.S. Since then we have been witnessing continuous visits by American generals to Bangladesh and joint military exercises with Bangladesh. Furthermore, to drag Bangladesh into the notorious “War on Terror” and, accordingly, to justify the U.S. presence in this region, U.S. has continued her regular trainings for the Bangladeshi armed forces. As part of the U.S. strategy to ensure her control over the strategic Chittagong seaport, last week we saw Bangladesh Navy’s participation in an annual bilateral naval exercise - Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT). Therefore, these joint military exercises, trainings, and forums like PAMS has to be looked upon from the angle of absolute American imperialist interests.   
Apart from the politically naive and sellouts, everyone is now aware of the real reasons of such U.S. help, support and relationship building activities. It is unbelievable to think that the U.S. and her allied capitalist nations carry out any action out of pure altruistic motives. These bloodsucking western nations spend their wealth and efforts just to make sure that the Muslim lands come under their subservience so that the inevitable re-emergence of the Khilafah can be delayed. 
We take this opportunity to remind the people of Bangladesh that in this very similar fashion Pakistan has been doing all it can to implement U.S.’s geo-political interests ever since America invaded Afghanistan. Today we see that Pakistani rulers and military generals have brought about nothing but misfortune and grief for the Muslims of Pakistan by conforming to the colonialist agendas of America. The lackey rulers of Bangladesh are also walking along that same path of treachery to lead this nation to devastation and misery by extending their hand of collaboration to fulfill American demands.
Moreover, these joint exercises, trainings and seminars are effective means to impose kufr leadership over the military institutions of Bangladesh. Through these tools America intends to sow the seed of “secularism” and “affection for western civilization” into the minds of the Muslim military personnel. May Allah (swt) shield the capable officers of Bangladesh Army from this and we pray that they can break the shackles of the Western puppet Hasina and give Nusrah to the truthful Hizb ut Tahrir to re-establish the Khilafah, which will eliminate the enemy presence from this region.
