The Quranic Concept of War の著者、S.K.Malik准将関連


It was General Zia who ushered in a new era of Islamisation, bigotry and blasphemy laws targeting minorities, and nurtured radical, armed Islamic groups bent on waging jihad across the world. Officers recruited in his era are three-star Generals today, and the army is largely motivated by the ideology of the “Quranic Concept of War” articulated by his protégé Brigadier (later Major General) S.K. Malik.

Describing anyone who stands in the way of jihad as an “aggressor”, Malik held that “the aggressor is always met and destroyed in his own country”. Malik also had a unique view of the concept of “terror”.

He averred: “Terror struck into the heart of the enemy is not only a means. It is an end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. Terror is not a means of imposing a decision upon the enemy, it is the decision we wish to impose on him. It is a point where the means and end merge.”

This is precisely what was sought to be “imposed” on the ill-fated people killed in the Victoria Terminus in Mumbai on 26/11.

数年来、業界では5.56ミリ弾薬の威力不足が指摘されていたが(あとで依拠した資料書きます。手許に無いので書けない。許してください。)、このほど英国防省は2千5百万ドル相当で7.62ミリ小銃×440を供給する契約を締結。このL129A1(恥ずかしながら、小銃名称誤りでした。L29A1と書いてしまった。L129A1でした。恥ずかしい間違いです。この部分は1月18日に追加、修正)は、ガス利用弾倉給弾方式。これにより、800mまでの目標に対処可能(sharpshooting capability)となる。
以上は、Andrew White, "UK selects 7.62mm weapon for operatios in Afghanistan," Jane's Defence Weekly, 6 Jan 2010, p.7.より抜粋。

ミャンマーの核兵器保有の可能性についてAndrew Selth,は、Despite a few rather odd suggestions to the contrary, there has never been any sign that Burma has even considered the acquisition or use of nuclear weapons. Nor is it likely to do so.としている。

It is important to keep in mind that to date the claims of a Burmese nuclear programme have come mostly from dissidents who may be trying to spur the international community toward direct action against the military rulers.


According to a western diplomat based in Bangkok, “It is nonsense to say that Burma plans to purchase nuclear technology from Russia or North Korea in order to build a weapon.

“What some Burmese dissidents are attempting to do is what their Iraqi counterparts did before them- the result was the invasion of Iraq, the consequences of which are well known to everyone.”

ミャンマーの弾道弾保有に関してSelthは In this context, it is worth noting that Burma has never possesed ballistic missiles. Nor has it expressed any serious interest in acquring them, despite rumours in 1999 that the SPDC had asked China for some M-11 short-range ballistic missiles, of the kind reportedly helb by pakistan.として否定的。

"Myanmar gives asylum to two Pak nuke scientists,"
PTI , NOVEMBER 23, 2001,<http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1503847143.cm > (26 Nov 2001)

Close on the heels of US intelligence officials questioning two Pakistani scientists on their alleged links with Osama Bin Laden's al Qaeda, Myanmar authorities have reportedly granted sanctuary to two other Pakistani nuclear scientists following a request from Islamabad, according to highly placed intelligence sources.

The two scientists, Dr Suleiman Asad and Dr Mohammad Ali Mukhtar, have been flown to Sagaing division of Myanmar, after the authorities in Yangon acceded to Pakistan regime's request, the sources said here.

8. Dr. Muhammd Ali Mukhtar:

Dr. Mukhtar is Ph.D in nuclear physics and has served in Khusab and Islamabad offices of PAEC. He is said to have joined PAEC in early 1980s. This Scientist is a weapon expert. He was allowed to slip out of Pakistan to Myanmar along with Dr. Suleiman Asad fearing interrogation by American agencies. The duo are said to have participated in an unspecified “research programme” in Myanmar. Before leaving to Myanmar, the scientist had been working in Khan Research Laboratories in the department dealing with defence production. The scientist is said to have connections with Al Qaeda.

9. Dr. Suleiman Asad:

To escape the interrogation regarding his linkage with Al Qaeda, with the support of Musharraf government Dr. Asad along with Dr. Ali Mukhtar had flown to Sagaing division of Myanmar. Dr. Asad is a weapon expert.
