NEW YORK - Pakistan governments half-page newspaper advertisement aimed at reaching out to the American public on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 attacks is unlikely to change the anti-Pakistan narrative in the US, The Wall Street Journal, which published the ad, said in a commentary published Tuesday. The ad cites a series of statistics. Almost 22,000 Pakistani civilians have died or been seriously injured in the fight against terrorism. The army has lost almost 3,000 soldiers. More than 3.5 million people have been displaced by the fighting and the damage to the economy over the past decade is estimated at $68 billion. it added. Which country can do more for your peace? asks the ad, which was placed by the Government of Pakistan in the Journals Saturday/Sunday edition. Since 2001 a nation of 180 million has been fighting for the future of worlds 7 billion the ad continues.Can any other country do so? Only Pakistan .. Promising peace to the world. The WSJ commentary noted that Pakistani army and civilian officials complain that in the US their country is often portrayed in the media and by members of Congress as a double-dealing ally that takes billions of dollars in US aid but secretly helps the Taliban kill US soldiers. Pakistans leaders have been publicly trying to promote a competing narrative, but with almost no success, correspondent Tom Wright wrote. In their telling, Pakistan did foster Islamist militant groups, first to fight Soviet troops in Afghanistan and then Indian soldiers in Kashmir. Pakistan military and civilian officials point out the US was all for the Mujahideen war against Moscow in the 1980s. But in the past decade, Pakistans army has severed its links with militants, who have unleashed a bloody war against Pakistans army and government, according to Islamabads narrative. Pakistani officials regularly tell this version of events in public speeches and to visiting US officials and journalists. The military has even made a local TV drama featuring real soldiers to publicize its sacrifices in the war against militants. Pakistans government also tried to place the ad in The New York Times. But the Times asked for more clarity in the ad about who was placing it, WSJ said, citing a spokeswoman for the newspaper. The Times did not hear back from the government and so has not yet run the ad, she said. The ad as printed in the Journal carries a line at the bottom in small font saying Government of Pakistan next to a web address for the government. A spokeswoman for the Journal declined to comment. Will the advertisement be effective in shifting the narrative, correspondent Wright asked? Its unlikely, he said.
