Pakistan border closure leaves Canadian supplies stuck in  Afghanistan

By Jeff Davis, Postmedia NewsJanuary 4, 2012

Hundreds of cargo containers of Canadian war supplies are stranded in  volatile southern Afghanistan, thanks to an ongoing Pakistani blockade of routes  exiting the landlocked country.

 

And with Pakistani officials preparing to impose steep tariffs on all NATO  shipments transiting the country, the cost of Canada’s withdrawal from  Afghanistan could increase by more than a half million dollars.

 

The Canadian Forces are trying to bring home thousands of tonnes of war  equipment used during the nearly 10-year combat mission. Packed into some 446  sea containers, most of this cargo is currently stored at an undisclosed  location in Afghanistan.

 

High priority items — such as all armoured vehicles and ammunition — have  already been flown out of Afghanistan on Canada’s giant CC-177 Globemaster  transport aircraft.

 

Nevertheless, much of the army’s gear remains stuck in Afghanistan, Lt.-Col.  John Nethercott told Postmedia News. He said the remaining items are “low  priority in nature,” and include tools, tents, forklifts, barbed wire and  engineering equipment.

 

The Department of National Defence has granted a contract to move the  containers from Afghanistan to Pakistan to A.J. Maritime, a Montreal-based  freight forwarding firm.

 

It is believed the remaining 446 containers were supposed to exit  Afghanistan’s southeastern border post at Spin Boldak, then cross the deserts of  Balochistan to the port of Karachi. Once at the port, the containers would be  loaded onto ships for the sail home to Canada.

 

But Imran Ali, Pakistan’s deputy consul general in Toronto, told Postmedia  News Wednesday that the Afghan-Pakistan border is shut tight for now.

 

“No containers are passing as of today,” he said. “There is a total sealing  of the border.”

 

Ali said this problem began when United States forces bombed two Pakistani  border posts in late November, leaving 24 soldiers dead and 13 wounded. After a  day of frenzied meetings about the “unprovoked attack,” Pakistani officials  announced they would take steps to disrupt NATO supply lines in and out of the  Afghan theatre.

 

“The (Defence Committee of Cabinet) has decided to close with immediate  effect the NATO/ISAF logistics supply lines,” said a Nov. 26 statement by the  Pakistani Foreign Ministry.

 

Following the closure of the border, Pakistan began a comprehensive policy  review of its relations with NATO. Ali said the national security committee of  the Pakistani parliament is “in the final stages of drawing out a policy” that  will be published within three to four days.

 

Ali said Pakistan is considering levying a tax on all NATO containers passing  through the country, and that officials have discussed a $1,500 U.S. charge per  shipping container.

 

“Customs officials, along with foreign policy officials in Pakistan, are  discussing the amount of levy to enforce,” Ali said.

 

Such a tariff, applied to 446 containers, would cost Canada some $660,000  U.S..

 

With Iran to the west, China to the east and the volatile and landlocked  Central Asian republics to the north, there are few safe exit routes from  Afghanistan.

 

If Pakistan keeps the border closed for long, Nethercott said, Canada could  start shopping around for alternative routes.

 

“Significant delays will potentially require re-evaluation of how the  (Canadian Forces) will repatriate the remaining materiel back to Canada in an  effective and cost-efficient manner,” he wrote in an email.

 

An undisclosed number of Canada’s low-priority containers completed the  journey to Karachi before the border was closed. There have been reports of  severe congestion at the port there, and that more than 3,600 military vehicles  and 1,700 sea containers are stranded at dockside.

  1. Canada should quit Afghanistan and bring their troops home. Afghanistan will prove, once again, that it is the Graveyard of Empires (in this case, a deeply wounded, DYING and INSANE by the day America).

    Russia has threatened to cut land routes for supply to Nato troops in Afghanistan, the battleground may turn into a cold Deathtrap for Murderer NATO forces. It is the only route active after Pakistan, America’s Darling Prostitute No. 1, closed the southern route.

    Analysts know that the US strike of November 26 , 2011, was a test case intended to “soften up” the Pakistani military leadership and compel it to fall in line with the US’s strategy. Overplayed your hand stinking US. Pakistan is in no mood to be part of your murder strategy as the Islamic Nation with Nukes demonstrated.
    Pakistan dissociated openly from the agenda of the recent Istanbul conference (November 2), which aimed at creating an Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe-type regional security mechanism for Central and South Asia and launching the New Silk Road project aimed at rolling back Russian and Chinese influence in Central Asia. Pakistan also boycotted the Bonn conference (December 5) that was expected to legitimize the long-term US military presence in Afghanistan. To be sure, the two events floundered. Pakistan is a vital cog in the wheels of US strategy.

    China is in reality its one and only “all-weather friend”. How can or why should Pakistan possibly collaborate with the US’s containment strategy toward China?
    And if there is no more route, then the 100,000 US forces and its Nato allies forces will survive for 3 months, at the most, after that, it will be turkey shoot for both the Afghan and Paki Taliban.

    Perhaps Americans would march to Washington DC and burn the WH to the ground with everyone in it, then go hunting for every member of the Congress and obliterate them? Brainless twits should not helm a nation.

  2. Lock down our own borders and let Israel do what it may to respond to their murderous neighbors
    ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Unfortunately, the entire West is so besotted and smitten with their darling muslim pricks and cunts they’ll join them to “wipe Israel off the map”. So they think, the godless, Satan serving worshipping filth.
