Washington, June 19 2012 : Pakistan has been ranked thirteenth in the most recent ranking of failed states, by Foreign Policy mag. African states Somalia, Congo, Sudan, Chad and Zimbabwe have topped the list, reports The Latest news. Afghanistan is ranked at number six, followed by Haiti, Yemen, Iraq and Central African Republic.
Pakistan with 101.6 points, the mag announced, is ranked thirteen, a small improvement from the prior 2 years.
In 2011 it was ranked twelfth, while in 2010 and 2009 it was ranked tenth. “The country is run by civilian prime that takes all that it can and pays just about no taxes,” Robert D Kaplan, the chief geopolitical researcher at Stratfor, wrote for the Foreign Policy. ” The lack of the state makes for 20-hour daily electricity blackouts and a nearly nonexistent education system in numerous areas,” he wrote.
Explaining the explanations for Pakistan being in the list of an abortive state, Kaplan expounded the real cause of these manifold mess ups, in several minds, is the artificiality of Pakistan itself : a cartographic puzzle piece stuck between India and Central Far East that splits apart what the Brit Empire ruled as one indivisible subcontinent.
The politicians in Pakistan are ruthlessly looting the country and are self centered with their own interests, it can be one reason behind failure of Pakistan, this was expressed by few of the people interviewed by Awami Web on this news.
