Bin Laden Death Script & the Needed Trigger for Next Step-Pakistan

Time to Talk about ‘Why & Why Now’

routeIt has been over two weeks since the orchestrated ever-changing Bin Laden Death. The question of what happened remains the same except it doesn’t seem to matter any longer. The US media is done after making their initial splash, and the majority is left with one conclusion: the SOB is dead, and who gives a da… how it happened. Whether Osama held an AK-47 while using some damsel in distress as a shield, whether there was a real fight or not, whether it was really Osama’s body in an organic edible shell we fed to the endangered sharks, whether the full credit goes to the CIA or the White House or the Pentagon …no longer seems to matter. Dizzy-fying confusion induced by dozens and dozens of lies and discrepancies and denials has given way to post-adrenaline-rush exhaustion. The question of what happened has been classified as moot and irrelevant. Right or wrong I’ll leave that question behind, at least for now, and instead, go back to focus on the more important question- the question of ‘why and why now.’

As I stated during the first few days of covering the Bin Laden Death Script, when it comes to DC dirty politics, when it comes to the new world order machine, and when it comes to US presidents, timing is everything and there are no such things as coincidences:

Considering the mainstream media’s sensationalism and propaganda tactics and their cemented role as an extension of the establishment, one must step back and take in the entire landscape, the context, connections, and of course the timing. Only after that, after putting the pieces together instead of dumbly staring at the images spread before us by the media, we have a chance to get a grasp of the reality-facts; or at least a chance to come up with real questions.

In the past two weeks, after talking with many experts and sources, both nationally and internationally, Pakistan has been surfacing as the common thread holding the most rational explanation of ‘why and why now.’ Interestingly, I came across the following statement by Rep. Ron Paul during his interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe:

“The helicopters that landed in Abbottabad won’t be the last to put American troops on the ground in Pakistan, I see the whole thing as a mess, and I think that we are going to be in Pakistan. I think that’s the next occupation and I fear it. I think it’s ridiculous, and I think our foreign policy is such that we don’t need to be doing this.”

I was planning to write a comprehensive piece based on information and analyses I have gathered from my solid intelligence and Pentagon sources. However, after watching the interview with Ron Paul (And he has his credible sources), I decided to go ahead and write a fairly quick commentary on why the question of ‘why and why now’ keeps pointing to Pakistan as the next probable occupation target for our never-dying neocon objective-makers. Actually the following is more of significant developments and a timeline than a subjective interpretation or commentary. I am going to put them together and have us look at the pattern and where these points point to, and that’s exactly what I meant by “one must step back and take in the entire landscape, the context, connections, and of course the timing.”

Let’s start with Project for the New American Century (PNAC) which was launched in 1997 and became known for leading the public campaign to oust Saddam Hussein both before and after the September 11 attacks. As many of my highly aware readers know, those neocons, their objectives and activities, never go away. They may change names or change a few front faces, but like a leech they always hold on to the system; the system they help put in place in the first place:

The blandly-named Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) – the brainchild of Weekly Standard editor William Kristol, neo-conservative foreign policy guru Robert Kagan, and former Bush administration official Dan Senor – has thus far kept a low profile; its only activity to this point has been to sponsor a conference pushing for a U.S. “surge” in Afghanistan.But some see FPI as a likely successor to Kristol’s and Kagan’s previous organisation, the now-defunct Project for the New American Century (PNAC), which they launched in 1997 and which became best known for leading the public campaign to oust former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein both before and after the Sep. 11 attacks.

So what’s their mission statement, and what have these neocons been cooking up with the new face, their new president, Obama? The following is from an article by Jim Lobe in 2009:

The mission statement opens by listing a familiar litany of threats to the U.S., including “rogue states,” “failed states,” “autocracies” and “terrorism”, but gives pride of place to the “challenges” posed by “rising and resurgent powers,” of which only China and Russia are named.

…FPI intends to make confrontation with China and Russia the centrepiece of its foreign policy stance. If this is the case, it would mark a return to the early days of the Bush administration, before 9/11, when Kristol’s Weekly Standard took the lead in attacking Washington for its alleged “appeasement” of Beijing… FPI has chosen to push for escalating the U.S. military effort in Afghanistan. The organisation’s first event, to be held here Mar. 31, will be a conference entitled “Afghanistan: Planning for Success”.

gwadarFor now, this is what I want you to take from the above on Obama’s Neoconistic objectives: fiercely counter China-Russia when it comes to establishing US hegemony, especially in Central and South Asia, with emphasis on Afghanistan. Next, let’s look at the strategic importance of the same region for China [All emphasis mine]:

In order for China to sustain its status as the emerging economic superpower, it must take all the necessary steps required in order to have sufficient energy resources for the near future. According to Pakistani think tank, BrassTacks, Chinese interests in the Indian Ocean became visible in 2002, when they invested heavily and began work on the Gwadar Port, located in Baluchestan, a province of Pakistan.

The Gwadar Port has its benefits for both Pakistan and China. According to Abdus Sattar Ghazali, executive editor for American Muslim Perspective, “The cost benefits to China of using Gwadar as the port for western China’s imports and exports are as evident as the long-term economic benefits to Pakistan of Gwadar becoming a port for Chinese goods.” Not only does Gwadar enable China to fulfill its energy needs, but it will also provide a strategic military footprint in the Arabian Sea, which has the United States worried.

Okay, now you have Obama’s Neoconistic objectives with China as its main target and competitor, and you have China competing for the same strategic area, Pakistan, to fulfill its energy needs and establish a strategic footprint in the Arabian Sea, and in the middle of it, the point where US-China strategic objectives intersect: Pakistan.

In order to halt this, the globalists need to block China’s access to the Arabian Sea by way of Gwadar. According to BrassTacks, to do this, “there needs to be a ‘new Pakistan’ as indicated in Operation Enduring Turmoil.” Operation Enduring Turmoil is PNAC’s plan to disassemble Pakistan into three parts. According to a “game plan” drawn out by Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, in a 2006 article of the Armed Forces Journal, “Pakistan’s Northwest Frontier tribes would be reunited with their Afghan brethren [and] would also lose its Baluch territory to Free Baluchistan. The remaining ‘natural’ Pakistan would lie entirely east of the Indus, except for a westward spur near Karachi.” With this done, what was once the NWFP, a province of Pakistan, is now part of Afghanistan, and what was once Baluchistan, a province of Pakistan, is now its own state, Free Baluchistan. This would force China to impossibly go through Afghanistan and Free Baluchistan in order to reach the Arabian Sea. Such an arrangement would cut China’s route to the Arabian Sea.

Now, please focus on our three main actors- China, US and in the middle, the strategically important Pakistan. Let’s use our common sense minus logic-clouding details, and consider what happens when the strategically crucial actor in the middle starts straying away from one main actor and moving toward the other.

This is from November, 2009:

China has sent out an interesting signal ahead of US president Barack Obama's scheduled visit to Beijing by offering a set of advanced fighter jets to Pakistan. It has agreed to sell $1.4 billion worth of jets to Islamabad days ahead of the planned visit of the US president Barack Obama to Shanghai and Beijing on November 15-18.

The move is expected to jolt the US administration as it works on notes and talking points for Obama's meetings with Chinese leaders. He is expected to discuss Beijing's relationship with India and its role in internal conflicts in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Beijing is keen to reduce US influence on Pakistan, which will make it easier for it to deal with India, sources said. Washington's recent decision to extend massive financial assistance to Islamabad is seen in some quarters as a policy setback for China.

A year later, in October 2010, the following interesting perspective on how things were heating up between the US and Pakistan is published by Margolis:

The neoconservative far right in Washington and its media allies again claim Pakistan is a grave threat to US interests and to Israel. Pakistan must be declawed and dismembered, insist the neocons. Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is reportedly being targeted for seizure or elimination by US Special Forces. There is also talk in Washington of dividing Afghanistan into Pashtun, Tajik and Uzbek mini-states, as the US has done in Iraq, and perhaps Pakistan, as well. Little states are easier to rule or intimidate than big ones. Many Pakistanis believe the United States is bent on dismembering their nation. Some polls show Pakistanis now regard the United States as a greater enemy than India.

obamaIt is important to remember how Obama passed AIPAC neocons’ test on Pakistan during his presidential campaign in 2007. Obama said if elected in November 2008 he would be willing to attack inside Pakistan with or without approval from the Pakistani government,"If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will," Obama said.

Now, let’s fast-forward to early April 2011:

Pakistan’s ambassador to China used a recent celebration of his country’s Republic Day to give a rhetoric-filled talk about Beijing-Islamabad relations. If March 23, 1940, was the day the Muslim League decided to establish Pakistan, then the anniversary would be a time to declare that relations with China will define the way forward. 'We shall take our bilateral relations to new heights,' Masood Khan proclaimed. [...] Pakistan has been moving into China’s sphere of influence for decades and the countries routinely refer to each other as 'all-weather' partners.

This year will mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations. 'Even when I was there in 1981, ’82, I could see Chinese military factories going up,' says Stephen Cohen, a Pakistan expert at the Brookings Institution. Now, Pakistan represents a major market for China’s nuclear and military technology. According to SIPRI, a Swedish think tank, over 40 per cent of Chinese arms exports go to Pakistan—the largest share of any country China sells to."

Obviously Obama’s day in day out bombing of Pakistan, his ‘let’s drone the hell out of them’ policy, had backfired, producing the opposite effect for his Neoconistic global hegemony objectives. Now, things begin to really heat up; this is from April 17, 2011:

President Obama’s rhetoric in Delhi had no substance except to rile the Pakistanis. The Delhi card didn’t quite work. The Chinese Premier visited Islamabad and pledged $20 billion in investment in Pakistan during the next five years. How about them apples? The Pakistani retort is what it has always been we need “Friends Not Masters”.

Britain as a colonial power practiced “Divide and rule” pitting religious and ethnic differences in the Middle East to rule continents. Bhutto famously theorized that the post-colonial powers were working on a “unite and rule” strategy forcing Pakistan to work with India against China.

“The idea of becoming subservient to India is abhorrent and that of cooperation with India, with the object of promoting tension with China, equally repugnant.” Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

Most Pakistanis don’t want closer relations with Washington–they want to build closer relations with Beijing, and work on creating the Muslim Union (similar to the European Union) in Central Asia. Links with Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey are key to the future of Pakistan.

Islamabad is moving ever closer to China, both militarily and economically– and that’s a fact Jack.

By mid April things start going downhill; very fast.

The transactional relationship between Washington and Islamabad is coming to an end. While US-Pakistani transactional relations are fraying at both ends, the opposite is true of Sino-Pakistani relations.

Pakistan supported China when she was recognized only by Albania, and built the bridge to the USA. This fact cannot be forgotten by the Chinese who mention it in every summit and mentioned it in this summit also

There is renewed energy to pace up the development of Gwadar Port to provide China a shorter route and easy excess to world markets to dispatch its goods to Europe and America.

"The Gwadar port project will transform Pakistan's Navy into a force that can rival regional navies. The government of Pakistan has designated the port area as a "sensitive defense zone." The Gwadar port will rank among the world's largest deep-sea ports. The port provides China a strategic foothold in the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean.

Located at the entrance of the Persian Gulf and about 460 kms from Karachi, Gwadar has had immense Geostrategic significance on many accounts. The continued unstable regional environment in the Persian Gulf in particular as a result of the Iran/Iraq war, the Gulf war and the emergence of the new Central Asian States has added to this importance. Considering the Geo-economic imperative of the regional changes, the ADB's Ports Master Plan studies considered an alternate to the Persian Gulf Ports to capture the transit trade of the Central Asian Republic (CAR) as well as the trans-shipment trade of the region.

And finally, on April 27, according to my sources, the following catalyst prompts the Obama team to execute the Kill Osama Bin Laden Script. This is the pivotal point in the Bin Laden Death Operation Script as a catalyst for the soon to come Pakistan Occupation:

Pakistan is lobbying Afghan President Hamid Karzai against building a long-term strategic partnership with the United States, and urging him instead to look to Pakistan and its ally, China, for help in striking a peace deal with the Taliban and rebuilding the economy, according to Afghan officials.

Washington''s relations with Pakistan have reached their lowest point in years following a series of missteps on both sides, and Pakistani officials say that they no longer have an incentive to follow the American lead in their own backyard, the report added.

"Pakistan is sole guarantor of its own interest," said a senior Pakistani official, adding: "We''re not looking for anyone else to protect us, especially the US. If they''re leaving, they''re leaving and they should go."

The next day, on April 28, , a senior Pakistani government official said that the Export-Import Bank of China will loan Pakistan $1.7 billion to develop a city-wide train system in the eastern city of Lahore.

Since the holes-filled and never-explained ‘kill or capture’ operation, the presidential PR machine, the US media and their extension guised under ‘alternative’ have been beating the war drums. After all, as with any wars of ours, public opinion must be shaped, and public backing must be garnered. This is one of the latest reflecting just that: 

After the killing of Usama bin Laden in Pakistan, few American voters believe that country is an ally of the United States in the war against terrorism. Moreover, most doubt Pakistan is worthy of continued U.S. foreign aid.

That’s according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Nearly three out of four voters -- 73 percent -- say the United States should stop sending foreign aid until Pakistan demonstrates a deeper commitment to the war against terrorism. Some 19 percent would continue to provide funding.

With the discovery that bin Laden apparently had been living in Pakistan for years, the consensus is Pakistan is not a friend (74 percent). A small 16 percent minority of voters views Pakistan as a strong U.S. ally in the war against terrorism.

You must be thinking: Pakistan must have tons in their own dossier to expose US government duplicities, lies, and nefarious activities. So why have they been relatively silent in all this? Why don’t they open the flood gate on ‘facts’ surrounding Bin Laden, his supposed role in 9/11, his supposed journey since 9/11, and his supposed death recently? And I have an answer for that: neither party has played all their cards yet. Just take a look at how Gates has been playing both sides carefully while measuring the outcome of various factors in play:

Gates reiterated the accusation that elements within the Pakistani government knew about the location of Osama bin Laden and were keeping that information from the United States. Bin Laden was killed in a US raid earlier this month.

At the same time, Gates echoed comments by other officials, conceding that the US has absolutely no evidence to that effect and that it is “pure supposition on our part.” The repeated accusations, despite being based on “pure supposition” have done major damage to US-Pakistan ties, and have spawned calls from Congress to suspend all aid to Pakistan to punish them.

Gates, who attended the conference with Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen, also said that the US raid that killed bin Laden had “humiliated” the Pakistani government, and that they had “paid a price” for bin Laden’s presence. Mullen added that the US ability to attack Pakistan with impunity was “a humbling experience” for the Pakistani military.

The White House neocons are in the midst of age-old diplomatic games, bluffing, and hedging their bets. They have the ‘foreign & military aid’ card. They have the ‘ISI dirt files’ card. They have the ‘ultimate China leaning’ card. And of course, they have the ‘mighty power of preemptive occupation war’ card which is always blessed and supported by NATO and overlooked by their butlers in the UN.

China has its own set of cards; whether it is their biggest market for dumping goods, or carrying the US debt, or who knows what else. For now they are using the ‘talk’ card with no real strings attached:

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao assured his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani of China's "all-weather friendship" on Wednesday, during a visit that sharply contrasted with anger between Washington and Islamabad.

"I wish to stress here that no matter what changes might take place in the international landscape, China and Pakistan will remain forever good neighbours, good friends, good partners and good brothers," Wen told Gilani at the start of a meeting in central Beijing's Great Hall of the People.

cardsSuffice it to say that not all cards have been placed on the table. As the famous Kenny Rogers’ Gambler lyrics go:

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

As for us the people, we’ll be sitting and waiting for the three parties to conclude this stage of their global hegemony game. We’ll be reading and watching and listening to their PR machine in the media give us one concocted fantasy after another. As in all other wars of ours we will have zero to say, zilch to gain, and plenty to lose. They have the cards, and we are the piled up tokens on the table.

  1. The United States pointing fingers at Pakistan is like Al Capone pointing fingers at Frank Nitti.

    http://911truthnews.com/death-of-bin-laden-may-distract-from-a-more-disturbing-story/

    http://911truthnews.com/scapegoating-the-pakistani-isi/

    Sibel, please read both… they are both extremely relevant to all of this.

  2. Bill Bergman says:

    Things appear to be heating up on this score, e.g.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110520/wl_nm/us_pakistan_blast

    It seems like we have to read mainstream news with two eyeballs, one eyeball taking it for granted that they are trying to tell the truth, and the other eyeball considering how and why they might be lying to us, and then putting the messages from both eyeballs together in our brains, and try to make sense out of it.

  3. For those of you here who think that Ron Paul will be the answer to Obama, consider some points.

    We live in a hypervigilant world (thanks largely to MSM and govt. conditioning). We must defeat the terrorists! We must protect the Homeland at all costs! Also, politicians being what they are (with some rare exceptions), can you can name one national name that would dare to oppose that mentality?

    Set aside the dump-the-Fed-and-fire-Bernanke stuff for a moment. What other examples has Paul done to really differeniate himself from the neocons? No, cable news soundbites don’t count. I’m talking about actual hearings or bills that he’s introduced that have been passed and signed into law.

    Answer? He doesn’t have any.

    If he really opposes the wars that we’re in, why doesn’t he hold a press conference and announce that until we withdraw from said wars, he won’t pay his taxes? Why doesn’t he take a taypayer-funded “Congressional delegation” trip to Gaza to show the world what our “Israeli aid” is really doing there? Why doesn’t he publically back Ken O’Keefe and his efforts to finally bring peace to the Midddle East? Why doesn’t he stand up to Obama and say that he’s using terrorist tactics to “stop terrorism” which is only making it worse?

    Because here politicians don’t stand up to AIPAC. When most members of the House signed a letter pleding their “loyal support” to Israel, did Paul sign it as well? Just making appearances on “Hardball” or some neocon think tank that C-SPAN decides to show really means nothing.

    This tell me that his “campaign strategists” want him to be everything to everybody. He’s not a Democrat, but he’s also not your typical neocon. What does THAT mean?

    Before going into the House, Paul was a Naval flight surgeon. This means that he was under Tri-Care (the military’s national health care). Now, he’s under govt. national health care. I’ve never heard him say that health care is a human right. Coming from a doctor, that’s frankly really disappointing. Why is he entitled to the best care possible but I’m not?

    IMO, Paul has no chance. Millions will vote for Obama because they’re conditioned to think that he’s the lesser of two evils. So that makes it ok. The other thing is that not all but many just don’t care any more. If that’s not true, then we’d have daily millions-in-the-streets protests that the MSM couldn’t avoid talking about. What else could it be?

    Sibel,

    I will re-review your post in more detail later, but off the top of my head….

    I would suggest rather that Iran is the center piece of the geo-political play here.

    The invasion of Iraq does not support the isolation tactics over China. I cannot connect this dot directly to a China play.

    However, Iraq invasion specifically connects the dot to an Iranian play.
    With Pakistan, Iran is totally surrounded by America –

    -bases (and troops?) in Turkmenistan
    -NATO ally Turkey on one border
    -US-occupied Iraq on one border
    -US-occupied Afghanistan on one border
    -(maybe) US-occupied Pakistan on one border
    -Arabian sea full of US carriers.

    Iran has no outs.

    Now, it could be argued that Iran is a sub-play in a large China play….

  5. Blackflag says:

    Further,
    Iran has been a oozing sore since Truman. It was also the first country that Eisenhower doctrine (you are either with us or against us) was applied.

    The overthrow of the Shah significantly disrupted American geo-political position as Iran was one of the two cornerstones of the US projection of power in the region (the other being Israel).

    I think this game over Iran has been in the works since Reagan took office in 1980’s.

  6. @Bill: Many thanks for the link; fits well.
    @Jon: I’ll check them out later today; thanks.
    @Blackflag: Have you seen the headlines today on 9/11 suit against Iran? Interesting, ey?!
    @Yoshi: Thanks for sharing, but I disagree with you. He is the only chance I see; currently.

  7. Isn’t this part of the Brzezinski plan for global hegemony? Though I didn’t read his book this sounds like his plan in his book “The Grand Chessboard” from the way I heard it described.

    Some of it is in an article he wrote for the psychos…I meant the members of the CFR in Foreign Affairs http://www.comw.org/pda/fulltext/9709brzezinski.html

  8. Robert D. Kaplan writes in ‘Monsoon’, “China’s Two Ocean Strategy. The Chinese have maintained a security and trade relationship with Pakistan, constructing the Karakoram Highway that connects Pakistan with China, as well as a deepwater port at Gwadar which will be run by Singapore. Imagine, hence, a Chinese merchant fleet and navy present in some form from the coast of Africa all the way around the two oceans to the Korean peninsula.” p. 290
    Several years ago, I met with a U.S. naval recruit who was part of the hidden war on the South China Sea. Our heavily armed, but slow craft were pitted against small speed boats mounted with 50 caliber machine guns. Many suspect these pirates are funded by the Chinese. We could follow with radar the ports from which these speed boats emerged, and then would go ashore in 4-man teams using white phosphorus grenades to take out the pirates. These American youngsters are so gung ho, that even when the young fellow who went by the nickname, Dead Meat, got injured by a grenade that bounced back on him, he decided to re-up to train more suckers.

    Is the president the leader or is he being lead? Regardless of the individual in the presidency the narrative creators will always be there to point the compass in the direction of their choice. How could a president fight against the system, if the power structure can fabricate the very scenarios that justify the policies they’ve always wanted? Emmanuel Goldstein will always be there to force the president and the people to bend to the will of the power structure.

    Information and accurate analysis are critically needed; all the information is out there it’s just not organized and disseminated to the people in mass.

  10. I admire the straightwardness and clarity in the article; Bin Laden Death Script & the Needed Trigger for Next Step-Pakistan” by Sibel Edmonds. She has summarized what many Pakistanis and civilian and military establishment – suspect and know well. Her neat analysis of USA interest in denying China access to warm water port in the Indian Ocean and destroy China’s close relationship with Pakistan is on the spot.
    The only disagreement I have with Ms.Edmonds, is her assertion that Pakistan is USA’s next occupation target. There are many reasons for my opposite opinion.
    For the first, Pakistan is not a banana republic to be invaded by any one, including USA. If Pakistan were such an easy target, India would have done it a long time ago. Pakistan has the 7th largest and very professional armed forces in the world, 5th largest nuclear arsenal and 180 million people, who will make life hell on earth for anyone having a wishful thinking of such type. Last but not least, China has given a warning that an intrusion of Pakistani territory would be like invading China.
    Why then, it was so easy for USA to come and kill Osama inside Pakistan? Well there are many theories. One is that Pakistan did allow USA to do so and even supplied information. Pakistan police according to neighbours to Osama told them to stay home and not venture out at the time of attack. Pakistan army knew that USA was going to conduct operation in Abbotabad and it was with its help and consent, USA succeeded in killing Osama Bin Laden. One should not forget that several major Al- Qaeda figures have been arrested by Pakistani authorities since 9/11–including Ramzi bin al-Shibh in a Karachi apartment building, Abu Zubaydah in Faisalabad, 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed
    Why do you think that Defence Secretary Robert Gates and Top military officer Mike Mullen went to US Congressional hearing to argue that USA support to Pakistan should not be terminated or discontinued? Not because USA loves Pakistan – on the contrary – but because they know that USA and NATO is dependent on Pakistani good will and help to have any chance of fighting terrorism.
    The relationship between Pakistan and USA has never been about trust. It was and is a strategic alliance founded on complementary interests. Pakistan wants military assistance and the USA needs for regional support in the Afghanistan war.
    The list of American record of abandoning and leaving its most valuable alley in dire situation is a long one. No help came during Indian interference in East Pakistan, leaving Pakistan to deal with Taleban after Pakistan helped USA to defeat USSR, Sanctions against Pakistan when it went nuclear and then again, forcing Pakistan to join this stupid war on terrorism, which Pakistan has nothing to do with. From Pakistan’s point of view, USA is the one, which is playing double game by rejecting Pakistan’s security concerns, saying these are irrelevant. USA asks Pakistan to move its entire army on the Afghanistan border to fight terrorism, which is deeply unpopular in Pakistan and while USA gives India a nuclear deal, it refuses to consider the same seal with Pakistan. I can name much more. USA cannot buy the loyalty of the second largest Muslim country in the world and an atomic power to top it.
    So all in all, Pakistan is safe. Do not worry about it.
    Kind regards
    Bahsy Quraishy

  11. @Bashy: Thank you for comment. It is well-reasoned, and I agree with all your points. We know what happened with AQ Khan chapter; right? We went through the same talk, same empty threats and posturing. As you know there is more than one way to ‘invade’ a nation, and militaristic invasion is only one. We still don’t know the ‘real facts’ in Bhutto assassination; do we? Right now we are seeing tons of bluffing and muscle flexing. One angle many don’t consider: the internal simmering in Pakistan; the divided military is another one. As for Zardari, he was/is the puppet and he won’t matter; totally replaceable.
    Hope we get to read more analyses/comments from you here. I can tell you have ‘real’ perspective on this; one that needs to be shared. We can use your insight for a better grasp.

  12. Salutations,
    Let me begin,
    I knew it on 7th Oct 2001. I have known it since, I wrote a “eyes only” then, what shall we say my “Deep State” has known all along. Why do I say I know, but to use an adage if you shall allow me Sibel, “this Dodo Bird Ain’t flying”, period. New American Century is a non starter, no matter Dick Chenney may wish for along with Kissingers of this world. They leave us Pushtuns out of the equation. US may have the Clock, but I have the time. Simple as that. It’s kinda like this, I know my alley ways, US doesnot, true it has millions to pay off informants, false flag operators in my part of the world, but 180 million martial people, with nukes to boot and very short termporal threshold of the genre of “Honour, Revenges”, Coming and cutting up Pakistan ain’t gonna be a cake walk. Lets bring it on as Bush said. I will go back to my tea in our deep state parlour. Your assesment is fair and ROn Paul is great pragmatist, let US balkanise Pak, it ain’t gonna be easy like a stroll in the central park. OOpps ! IND just got whacked while Pak was bailing out. This is the unintended consequences.

    Sibel,

    Thank you for this article. I need to read it more carefully and only skimmed it. But I think you have revealed what is at play here… the ultimate new global struggle between the US and China… who both are presently addicted to the energy resources in the ME… not to mention the “trade routes” through Suez and the gulf.

    At some point I suspect the US will simply default on its debt to China and “withdraw” completely within their own “sphere of influence” which will include the slave markets for finished goods supply in Asia, SA and Africa. This may be 20 or 50 years out, but what is unfolding in the ME is an attempt to fix our sphere of influence and shut of the Chinese.

    The zionist Neocons are simply getting their piece by tagging along with and under the umbrella of the US imperialists (empire/sphere of influence) who could care less what the size and boundaries of “greater Israel” is. The US fascists want control of oil and trade routes and Israel of any size is no impediment. The zionists such as PNAC and this new group (Ari Fleischer is probably on board too) are just manipulative of US policy which accrues to their benefit. The provide black ops, false flags and intel the the US national security state in its quest for empire and consolidation of the their sphere of influence.

    Sphere of influence is a polite diplomatic term for absolute control obedience.

    We need to watch the coming (total) economic collapse, because that will be a sea change in the world and its realignment.

    Sibel… you nailed it once again. Good catch!

    OBL was a creation of US intel. Tjis doesn’t mean he was a robot who did exactly as we programmed him. He was created and supported to fight the USSR our arch enemy in a proxy war in Afghanistan which all happened to be the door to energy resources… how convenient.

    One created he was monitored and all his actions were monitored and manipulated to SOME extent by double agents. He, himself did not have the stuff to pull of 9/11, and this was made possible by Intel support, though he may have been self deluded to think is boys could pull something so vast and complex off on their own with 100K. They couldn’t. It didn’t matter to OBL who may have along with many other disgruntled Arabs/Islamists been so pissed at the USA for good reason, that any hurt inflicted on the USA was a blessing to them. If they took credit for 9/11 it is not different from the many “terrorists” groups which claimed credit for all those mid east hijackings back in the 70s and 80s. They all want big shoulders and so taking the credit gave it to them and they didn’t care if it was a boldface lie.

    Intel loved the terrorism on one level… it justified their existence and gave them a field to play on.

    OBL likely died shortly after 9/11. The actual date matters not. He was by that time turned into the mythical boogy man and trotted out to make statements (CIA created) to fuel the war on terror and the need for the National Security State and the hands of it policies these SOBs wanted.

    With the coming 10th anniversary of 9/11 it was time to blunt the calls for a new, fair and thorough investigation… so they declared the boogy man dead and dropped into the sea and harbored by the NEXT domino.. Pakistan. How convenient!

    There is absolutely no legal standard evidence that OBL was killed in Pakistan 2 weeks ago. If you believe that I have a lovely bridge to sell you.

    thoughtful article! I tend to agree with your analysis about pakistan being next target for US occupation. I think at a minimum they want a denuclearized pakistan that is subservient to India and docile to afghanistan (if they cannot occupy it successfully).

    In case of an attempt by USA to occupy pakistani land (in order to disintegrate it), how would china react in your opinion? Would it suck India into war as well? Can it transform into world war three or a bigger regional conflict?
    Secondly, the chosen timing of such an attack is of interest. I think USA will have to do it before it starts to pull out its troops from afghanistan in 2012 or before next presedential elections in USA.
    Another important aspect is the use of pakistani taliban by USA to destablize pakistan and to sow the seeds for civil war in order to soften it up for imminent attack for occupation and/or to take out its nukes!

    Why would pakistan allow USA to conduct such an attack and that too in abbotabad? One can argue that pakistan helped USA in order to facilitate their face saving exit from afghanistan. But why did they choose abbotabad this show? They could have easily allowed USA to do it at pak afghan border area? Why abbotabad? I think that atleast militiary did not know about this attack beforehand. If they did, then they are the biggest dumbs and fools (or unpatriotic), considering the disrespect it brought for the country and the army itself. May be they did share the information about the compound with USA unknowingly that they are inviting for trouble/betrayel from CIA.
    All messy, Different theories…. we can just sit and watch the events unfold helplessly.

    Also I would disagree to some extent with your statement that pakistan cannot be invaded like afghanistan or iraq. Pakistan is indeed not a banana republic but its defence is not impregnable. We do not have a kind of protection on our western border as we have on the eastern. With militairy already spread out between balochistan, tribal areas (increased pressure on pak army to enter north waziristan and possibly further deployment along the durand line) and the eastern border, pak army has been pushed into a position of “spread out and spread thin”. Not to mention that any pressure on eastern border from India (as per american game plan) would truely present an opportunity for pakistan to be sandwitched if attacked from both sides. Our airforce cannot handle IAF and US air force at the same time. Also pakistan only has two army cores deployed along the long porous durand line i.e. one in peshawer and another in quetta which (in my layman’s opinion) is not enough for countering massive troops incursion from afghanistan.
    Another important dimension is the use of psychological warfare tactics being used successfully against pak. There seems to be no end to destabilization caused by taliban’s suicide attacks in pak any time soon(which are fantastically softening up pak’s conventional military might, much to the liking of americans). And not to mention the presence of covert CIA/blackwater agents already operating inside pakistan supposedly in large number.

    Another important factor is the spread of confusion among pakistani public as to who owns this war on terror. Public support is critical to army’s success. After a show like abbotabad, the credibility of army and government is badly shaken in my opinion. Most of the pakistanis think that this govt and probably army’s top brass are puppets of america.

    I think in the end our nukes/missiles would probably act as a deterrent in preventing all out war along our borders. Role of china is also going to be critical in safeguarding pakistan’s integrity from now onwards.

    Fantastic insight! My friends think the AfPak war will be over now that we “killed” bin Laden. Hopeless frustration barely begins to describe my feelings.
