CIA, The Mother Hen

Growing vandalism of CIA led foreign agencies in Pakistan

A Momin is never bittien twice from the same hole. (Hadith)



By Brig Asif Haroon Raja,
www.opinion-maker.org

Apart from its agenda in Afghanistan, the US had defined objectives set for Pakistan as well. Under the ruse of alliance, America wanted to denuclearize Pakistan and turn it into a compliant state subservient to India. For the accomplishment of its objectives, the US in connivance with Israel, Britain and India chalked out a comprehensive covert plan spread over 7-8 years to weaken it from within. On the pretext of helping Pakistan’s agencies in tracing and nabbing Al-Qaeda and Taliban runaways as well as those harboring them, a secret deal was struck with Gen Musharraf in December 2001 and later renewed in March 2008 that CIA and FBI operatives would be allowed complete liberty of action and immunity from criminal jurisprudence to operate in any part of the country and provided full cooperation by law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

Under the plea of keeping a watch on terrorists and netting them, CIA and FBI established Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) in FATA, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. The two agencies soon took complete control over intelligence gathering and dissemination and marginalized the role of ISI and MI. These FOBs became spying and clandestine operations hideouts to destabilize FATA and Balochistan. Their task was not to control terrorists but to fan terrorism, sectarianism, ethnicity and separatism by subverting the loyalties of people, cultivating agents within militant and criminal groups and using them for assassinating important personalities, clerics and pro-government tribal elders and for sabotage and subversion. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in FATA and Baloch Liberation Army in Balochistan were the creation of CIA duly helped by RAW. Banned Jihadi groups were goaded to join up with TTP.

U.S. And NATO Escalate World’s Deadliest War On Both Sides Of Afghan-Pakistani Border


by Rick Rozoff



Global Research, March 1, 2011



The United States and its military allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization have entered the third month of war in Afghanistan this year, which President Barack Obama in December of 2009 announced as the year in which American and other foreign occupation forces would be reduced preparatory to their full withdrawal.

Within months of the U.S. head of state’s claim, the commander-in-chief had over 90,000 troops in the conquered country and currently there are 60,000 more from some fifty other nations serving in NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). The total number exceeds that of any foreign military force ever before stationed in Afghanistan. The presence of American and allied troops, beginning as it did on October 7, 2001, is the longest in the Asian nation’s history, with U.S. forces already in the country for several months longer than Soviet troops were stationed there from late 1979 until early 1989.

Pakistan and Yemen on top Israel agenda : Pakistan’s Nuclear Factor

Nuclear factor kept Pakistan’s adversaries restrained




By Brig Asif Haroon Raja



After 9/11 terror attacks on twin towers, when the US leadership decided to avenge the attacks by invading Afghanistan and also planned to rope in Pakistan, it rejected India’s offer of providing air bases and full military support. It also ignored India’s advice to tackle Afghanistan and Pakistan in a single swoop. In India’s reckoning, roots of terrorism could not be eliminated without taking on both the countries. The US leaders assessed that Pakistan being geographically contiguous to Afghanistan and also having more knowledge than any other country about the target country as well as Taliban would be most suitable. The US however assured India that it had future plans to deal with Pakistan separately at an opportune time.

The Covert Origins of the Af-Pak War – The Road to World War III

 
Now that we have an understanding of how the Global Banking Intelligence Complex ran operations through BCCI, let’s look at how some of BCCI’s key players kept operating after the bank was finally shut down. As discussed in the last chapter, during the 1980s and early ’90s, the CIA worked in partnership with BCCI in what was, at the time, the agency’s largest covert operation ever, pumping an estimated $10 billion into funding the Afghan Mujahideen. Through this operation, Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network was formed. Bin Laden had accounts in BCCI and ran CIA/BCCI-funded camps.

New War Rumors: U.S. Plans To Seize Pakistan’s Nuclear Arsenal

Rick Rozoff,

Stop NATO, October 16, 2010 

Two recent news items emanating from the United States have begun to reverberate in Pakistan and give rise to speculation that growing American drone strikes and NATO helicopter attacks in that country may be the harbingers of far broader actions: Nothing less than the expansion of the West’s war in Afghanistan into Pakistan with the ultimate goal of seizing the nation’s nuclear weapons.

NATO Expands Afghan War Into Pakistan

By Rick Rozoff,
http://rickrozoff.wordpress.com/

On October 7 the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organization military allies will begin the tenth year of their war in Afghanistan, over 3,000 miles from NATO Headquarters in Brussels.

The following month midterm elections will be held in the U.S. and NATO will hold a two-day summit in Portugal. The American administration is eager to achieve, or appear to have achieved, a foreign policy triumph in an effort to retain Democratic Party control of Congress and NATO something to show for the longest and largest military mission in its 61 years of existence.

TODAY’S SUICIDE BOMBING IN QUETTA, PAKISTAN LEAVES A TRAIL TO TEL AVIV

 

Quetta, Baluchistan, (Veterans Today). Today, 43 Pakistanis were killed in a terror attack, killed for supporting Palestinians in Gaza.  The signs had been there, the Wikileaks attempt to put responsibility for the Taliban on Veterans Today editor General Hamid Gul.  This was debunked in a heartbeat.  This attack was vicious and clearly the work of Israel.   This was a terror attack meant as a message to the people of the world telling them that if they rally in support of those imprisoned in Gaza, they will be murdered.

Pakistan : Presence of U.S. troops on Pakistani soils brings controversy

Round-the-clock diligent relief and rescue efforts have further enhanced U.S. military's image in the country, though the entry of 1,000 U.S. marines to join hands in relief operations have presented a scenario with both repercussions and opportunities, local analysts say.

"We trust U.S. Army. It's helping us and can never leave us alone," Al'lan Fakir Jr., a famous folk singer told media on Friday at the site of heavily flooded River Indus in southern Sindh province.

Zionist puppet, criminal and drug dealer Zardari visits EU despite the worst floods in history in Pakistan

Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari abandons dying Pakistanis in favour of Europeans



Strong opposition at home against Asif Ali Zardari’s visit to Europe

« Zardari's decision to visit Europe as Pakistan is ravaged by floods reflects the elite's flagrant indifference to human suffering », Mustapha Qadri in « Pakistan’s corrosive inequality », Guardian 4 August 2010. In times when Pakistani politicians have turned their guns on their own people to help the terror of Europeans in their occupation of Afghanistan, and in times when Pakistanis are dying in their thousands as a result of floods not known in Pakistan for nearly 100 years, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari decided to leave Pakistan for Europe to pledge, through his big smiles, his support for their terror in killing more Pakistanis rather than demanding that they remove their destabilising, murderous and terrorist forces from the entire region and for the responsible countries to be tried for war crimes, genocides and crimes against humanity.

Lebanon, Pakistan and Venezuela are the next US-UK-Israel targets

Is the leaked Afghan War Diary being used to justify full scale war in Pakistan?

Talkshows discussed recent release of 92,000 classified documents on the war in Afghanistan by the website WikiLeaks. The documents show how Pakistan’s military spy service has for years guided the Afghan insurgency and double crossed US militaryWayne Madsen  assault Wikileaks claiming they are a CIA front and spreading disinformation. The leaked Afghan War Diary is nothing but another disinformation PSYOPS campaign to pave path in disarming Pakistani Nukes and disintegrating this powerful Islamic Republic.

Attacks on Mirzaiyya-Ahmadiyya Temples in Pakistan : A legacy of British divide and rule policies

The Mirzaï-Ghulami-Ahmadi Headquarters are found in Haïfa (Israël) and London (UK). In Pakistan, Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are allies of the CIA/MOSSAD/RAW and their temples form a network of terror against Muslims as well as against the Pakistani Government in an attempt to bring Pakistan to its knees.


Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, Punjab, India (1835-1908)

The Mirzaiyya/Ahmadiyya (also referred to as Ahmadiyya/Qadianiyya) Sect, is an Indian sect created in British occupied India in 1889, by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, Punjab. He claimed to be the Mujaddid (divine reformer), the Promised Messiah (Second Coming of Christ), and the Mahdi awaited by Muslims, all wrapped into one. He also declared that Jesus had migrated to Kashmir and that he himself had appeared in the spirit and power of Jesus. Unfortunately, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad died of diarrhoea in his toilet before he could complete his alleged prophetic mission. People often say that he died in his saffron robe. Islamic authorities considered Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s claims as mere hallucinations. The terms Ahmadi and Ahmadiyya are derived from the name Ahmad, and not exclusive to the Punjabi/Indian Sect. There exist other Ahmadi Movements, for example, in North and West Africa, whose followers are Muslims and recognised as such and behind which Mirzaïs are operating and trying to usurp, such as the Sufi Ahmadiyya Tariqa Movement in Egypt. To avoid confusion, the term Mirzaï-Ahmadi (or Mirzaï-Ghulami-Ahmadi) is used, although Mirzaïs prefer to be identified only as ‘Ahmadis’ because of the term’s affinity with the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and in order to be easily passed as Muslims when they are not so. A Qadiani is really an inhabitant of the county of Qadian in the Indian State of Punjab but this term is also wrongly used to refer to a follower of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

The British occupiers, who killed and ousted the Muslim Mughals in the Hindustan they unified and civilised for over 400 years with representation from all sections of the population, were met with fierce resistance. In 1868, a Commission of Inquiry made up of British MP’s, Church Officials and journalists, was sent to India to assess the causes of the resistance against the British occupiers. And, in an a report called « The Arrival of the British Empire in India » (1871), it was concluded that because the Muslim resistance allegedly followed blindly their religious leaders, the strategy was to choose and put in office a Muslim who was prepared to claim ‘prophethood’ which would preach the abandonment of jihad (struggle or self-defence) against the British. This was also quoted in « Ahmadiyya, the British-Jewish Connections » by Bashir Ahmad M.A., Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, USA, and in various other Church documents.

The family of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, as well as himself, were in the employment of the British forces of occupation which they supported during what became known as the « Islamic War of Independence ». The British found in Mirza Ghulam Ahmad an instrument of division within the Muslim community. He and his movement were financed and supported by the British and they fought alongside the British against the Hindustani Muslim mujahideen. In his letters to the Lieutenant-Governor of Punjab, Feb. 24, 1898 and to British Queen Victoria, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad pledged his loyalty and the loyalty of his followers to the British Government and the British Queen and asked for favours in return for their campaign against Muslims. This policy was true then as it is true today around the world. Mirzaïs-Ahmadis were among the first Indian so-called ‘Muslims’ to be allowed into Britain and the United States. Both the British and Indian governments recognise them as Muslims, but the Islamic world rejects this and consider them as a subversive and dangerous proselytising sect operating as a fifth column in countries where Muslims form a majority and as anti-Muslim elements where Muslims are in a minority. The Mirzaï-Ghulami-Ahmadi Headquarters are found in Haïfa (Israël) and London (UK). The HQ of the non-Muslim Bahaï Sect is also in Israël.

Because they bear Muslim sounding names, the Mirzaïs-Ahmadis infiltrate Muslim organisations as spies and they are recruited by occupiers to attack and murder Muslims especially in times of war. The Indian sect is also used by the Indian Government for its operations in Kashmir and elsewhere in India and they encounter no resistance in building their temples which architecture is based on mosques with minarets. In Pakistan, Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are allies of the CIA/MOSSAD/RAW and their temples form a network of terror against Muslims as well as against the Pakistani Government in an attempt to bring Pakistan to its knees given that Pakistan is a nuclear power and an indispensable ally in the European West’s hegemonic designs in spite of the disapproval of the Pakistani people. According to some sources, former Pakistani Dictator Pervez Musharraf had to embrace the Mirzaï-Ahmadi religion before he could marry Sehba who was a Mirzaï-Ahmadi. Sehba was often referred to as « Queen Sehba. The first Qadiani queen ! » The Dictator’s ensuing politics could not be more revealing.

Attacks on mosques and the killing of Muslims is a frequent occurrence in Iraq and Afghanistan in an attempt to break the will of Muslims to resist the terror of occupation. Although Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are not recognised as Muslims and their Temples not recognised as Mosques in Pakistan and other countries where Muslims are in majority, Pakistanis have respected the rights of Mirzaïs-Ahmadis to follow their sect. But with the infiltration of Zionist mercenaries in Pakistan (Blackwater-Xe and others) and the use of Mirzaïs-Ahmadis Temples by the CIA/MOSSAD to direct operations against the Pakistani people, the escalation of the war in that region has taken a new deadly turning on 28th May 2010 with retaliations on their temple bases. In the 26th November 2008 (11/26) Mumbai Attack, the role of the notorious Jewish centre Chabad Nariman House, renowned as a safe house for covert operations and where suspicious activities were observed over a period of two months preceding the attack, was reported (Ref. Frontier Post, Hindustan Times), and the use of drugs by the attackers confirmed by Indian Police commissioner Vishwas Nagre Paril.

When Omar Waraich, the London Independent newspaper correspondent in Islamabad, reports on « Worshippers slaughtered in deadly 'final warning' », and « A brutal escalation of violence » (Independent of 29th May 2010), he wrongly refers to the Mirzaï-Ahmadi Temples as Mosques and to the Indian sect as an ‘Islamic sect’. The British government and Queen recognise Rafiq Hayat as « President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK » who gives interviews as a ‘Muslim’, hiding the fact that Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are not recognised as Muslims by Islamic authorities. In fact, most, if not all, of those Muslim-sounding names holding high office in the UK Civil Service, employed as correspondents by the mainstream media and as newscasters on mainstream television are Mirzaïs-Ahmadis and not Muslims. Muslims are not aware of this because they are not properly informed. Under the UK Equal Opportunities legislation, the Mirzaïs-Ahmadis always benefit at the expense of Muslims. Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are often compared with the Harki traitors of Algeria although Harkis are Algerian Muslims of French descent.

The US and Pakistan’s aerial bombing is killing civilians and will make more 'terrorists'

By Abdul Malik Mujahid
Online Journal Guest Writer


May 18, 2009, 00:13


During the last 30 years of wars in Afghanistan, Afghan civilians have had one safe place to escape to: Pakistan.

They fled the Soviet invasion. They fled civil wars. They fled US bombing. Pakistan took care of millions of these Afghan refugees.

Now that safe haven with its lush green valleys is burning with bombs. And the hosts, the people who themselves welcomed Afghan refugees, at times literally into their homes or into campsites on their farms, are on the run. They are streaming out of Swat, Dir, and Buner, and registering as refugees in Mardan and the fertile valleys of Pakistan. The UN says about 2 million Pakistanis have been displaced during the last year of drone attacks, bombing and fighting.

Pakistan is bombing its own land and its own people who are caught between the Taliban and the Americans.

Whomever I talk to among Pakistanis, it seems, there is an emerging consensus. They hate both the Taliban who blast schools and the Americans who bomb madrasahs. Both kill civilians.

The Soviets could not win by bombing Afghanistan, although even today bomblets and mines left over by the Soviets kill and injure 60 Afghans a month.

And American bombings in Afghanistan are so ineffective and counterproductive that even the puppet president Karzai is consistently and publicly campaigning against the air strikes. He told CNN recently that “We believe strongly that air strikes are not an effective way of fighting terrorism,” adding that “air strikes rather cause civilian casualties and do not do good for the U.S., do not do good for Afghanistan.”

On Sunday, May 10, hundreds of students in Kabul held protests over US air strikes in the Farah province that killed nearly150 Afghan civilians.

Students held up banners, including one describing America as “the biggest terrorist in the world,” according to the BBC.

It is unfortunate that while the US has refused to listen to President Karzai, it has now successfully persuaded President Zardari of Pakistan to do the same. The Pakistani air force is using bombers and helicopters to bomb the “Taliban positions” and declare that they have already killed 200 of them, while Zardari is asking for drones so they can do exactly what the US is doing. Yet, even the U.S. air strikes have failed to accomplish their stated goals. There have been 65 to 85 US drone attacks on Pakistan, killing about 780 civilians and about 50 alleged terrorists.

I wonder which technology allows soldiers flying tens of thousands of feet high in the air to distinguish between one guy dressed in Salwar Kameez and another guy also dressed in Salwar Kameez? This is the dress all Taliban and all civilians use in that area. It is next to impossible to distinguish between them unless you are on the ground, know the language and the culture. The result is that wherever there is a crowd, people are at risk of being killed, be it a wedding party or any other gathering. It is so difficult to understand, from the air, what lies below that the US planes have ended up dropping a few bombs on the Pakistani Frontier Corps outposts, killing 11 Pakistani border guards who all dress in the same Salwar Kameez as others. To confuse things further, for American air force pilots and video shooters handling war drones from sites as remote as Nevada, Taliban, civilians, and Frontier Corps, all sport beards. And, culturally, most men in these mountainous areas will carry a gun, even if they are not fighting.

Pakistan cannot solve its problems by bombing its people.

The culprits are in the midst of people. The population is by and large with them since they are sick and tired of foreign intervention, the corrupt governments and the absence of justice.

Just imagine that despite a seven-year long massive air and ground hunt for Osama bin Laden and despite the U.S. having placed on him the highest bounty in the history of humanity, which has been doubled to $50 million, all trails have gone cold to find Osama bin Laden.

Even when the US cornered Osama bin Laden in the Tora Bora complex (which was built with CIA help during the “good Jihad” against the Soviets) he managed to escape; this despite the use of “Daisy Cutter bombs” which Rear Admiral John Stufflebeem of the Joint Chiefs of Staff described as “the most powerful in the US arsenal.”

Unless the US does a massive ethnic cleansing, the Afghans/Pathans will win in their lands no matter how many drones and air strikes take place. Afghans don’t like foreign occupations. This is the reason the British failed in the 19th century. This is the reason the Soviets failed in the 20th century. This is the reason the US is going nowhere in that region in the 21st century.

No wonder, Lord Curzon, the former British viceroy of India (1899–1905) who achieved peace with the Afghans and created the current Pakistani province of NWFP, said, “No patchwork scheme -- and all our present recent schemes, blockade, allowances, etc., are mere patchwork -- will settle the Waziristan problem. Not until the military steamroller has passed over the country from end to end, will there be peace. But I do not want to be the person to start that machine.”

The British were wise enough to stop invading Afghanistan after 100 years of wars. The date on the Afghan flag signifies that victory. In an apparently unrelated event, the wise Lord Curzon was appointed the Foreign Secretary of the British Empire in the same year.

Abdul Malik Mujahid is a Pak-American Imam in Chicago who serves as the vice chair for the Council for a Parliament of World Religions.

War in Pakistan : China is putting final nail in the US-Israel's coffin in South East Asia

US -Israelis Zionist plan to redraw Middle East


Pakistan war fuels international tensions

by Peter Symonds
Global Research




Comments by China’s ambassador in Islamabad last Thursday highlight the reckless character of the Obama administration’s escalating intervention in Pakistan. By pressuring Islamabad to wage an all-out military offensive against Islamic insurgents in the Swat Valley and neighbouring districts, Washington is not only destabilising Pakistan but raising tensions in a highly volatile area.



Speaking to Pakistani business leaders, Chinese ambassador Luo Zhaohui pointedly voiced concern about the growth of “outside influence” in the region. He singled out the US in particular, saying that China was worried about US policies and the presence of a large number of foreign troops in neighbouring Afghanistan. While reiterating China’s support for “the fight against terror,” Luo declared that US strategies needed some “corrective measures”. He added, “These are issues of serious concern for China.”



Luo’s unusually blunt remarks came just one day after US President Obama spoke to his Chinese counterpart, President Hu Jintao. While a number of issues were discussed, the escalating war in Pakistan was clearly high on the agenda. This first publicised phone call between the two men came as Obama met with the Afghan and Pakistani presidents over US strategy in the two countries. While Hu reportedly offered his cooperation, Luo’s comments express China’s underlying fears over growing US influence in South Asia.



Last week’s tripartite summit in Washington signalled a major upsurge in military violence in both Afghanistan and Pakistan. Under intense pressure from the US, the Pakistani army has launched a large-scale offensive against militants in the Swat Valley in which hundreds have already died and hundreds of thousands of civilians have been forced to flee. The summit, however, involved more than discussions on military cooperation, outlining comprehensive plans for the closer economic and strategic integration of the two countries into an American sphere of influence.



China, which has longstanding ties with Pakistan, is obviously disturbed by these developments. As Ambassador Luo told his business audience, more than 60 Chinese companies are involved in 122 projects in Pakistan. He noted the “close liaison” with Pakistan over the security of over 10,000 Chinese engineers and technical experts in the country. In fact, Beijing has previously insisted on reprisals over the abduction and killing of Chinese citizens by Pakistani militants as well as military action against Islamic Uighur separatists from western China taking refuge in Pakistan.



More fundamentally, Beijing regards Islamabad as a crucial partner in its own regional strategy. China devoted considerable resources to building up Pakistan as a counterweight to India after the 1962 Sino-Indian border war. Pakistan is the largest purchaser of Chinese arms and, according to the Pentagon, accounted for 36 percent of China’s military exports between 2003 and 2007. Chinese technical assistance was critical to Pakistan’s nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.



In return, China received the green light to build a major naval/commercial port facility at Gwadar, a coastal town in Baluchistan. The port is the linchpin of Beijing’s “string of pearls” strategy to establish access for its expanding navy to a series of ports along key sea routes across the Indian Ocean—above all, to protect oil and gas supplies from the Middle East and Africa. For its part, the US, which regards China as a rising economic and strategic rival, is determined to maintain its military, including naval, predominance.



US-China tensions over Pakistan only highlight the deeply destabilising role of Washington’s aggressive intervention, firstly in subjugating Afghanistan, and now in seeking to bring Pakistan more directly under its sway. The escalating conflict in Pakistan is a direct product of the US-led invasion of Afghanistan, which the Bush administration forced Pakistan to support under the threat of becoming a military target itself. Widespread opposition inside Pakistan and Afghanistan to US actions has fuelled a growing insurgency that threatens not only the US occupation of Afghanistan, but a full-scale civil war in Pakistan.



US imperialism, under the Obama administration, is determined to exploit the very disasters it has created in order to advance its strategic interests throughout the broader region, especially in energy-rich Central Asia. By doing so, Washington is fundamentally altering the precarious strategic balance and threatening to draw the other major powers into the vortex.



China is not alone in its fear of US designs in Central Asia and the presence of large numbers of foreign troops in Afghanistan. Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the US has been seeking to establish military alliances and economic ties with the newly established Central Asian Republics. Washington exploited its invasion of Afghanistan to establish military bases in Central Asia for the first time. Afghanistan and Pakistan also provided a potential alternate pipeline route to extract energy riches from the region. In response, China and Russia, which both regard the region as their backyard, came together in the Shanghai Cooperation Group to counter expanding American influence.



Neighbouring India is also watching events in Pakistan with trepidation. While quietly applauding Washington’s pressure on Islamabad to wage war against “terrorism”, New Delhi is concerned that Pakistan’s closer incorporation under the American umbrella may lead to the downgrading of the US-Indian strategic partnership, which only developed in the late 1990s. The weakening of rival Pakistan, against which India has fought three wars, is no doubt welcomed in New Delhi. But its replacement by a US client state, or worse its collapse into chaos, would only confront the Indian establishment with new uncertainties.



The entire region remains a potential powder keg. The Cold War certainties that divided the world between the Soviet and Western blocs have been replaced by new tensions and rivalries. Tentative steps by India and Pakistan to resolve their longstanding disputes, especially over Kashmir, have all but stalled. Efforts by China and India to improve relations have moved slowly. Each continues to eye the other with suspicion and to intrigue at each other’s expense in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Burma.



The most explosive ingredient in this volatile mixture is the attempt by US imperialism to use its military superiority to offset its long-term economic decline. Far from easing tensions, the installation of the Obama administration marked an aggressive new turn in the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan aimed at advancing US ambitions. Last week’s comments by China’s ambassador are another sign that Washington’s moves will not go unopposed.

War on Pakistan : British government behind suicide bombings and civil war in Pakistan


MI6 OPERATIVE ZARDARI IS HELPING ZIONIST US/UK GOVERNMENTS TO DESTROY PAKISTAN AS A COUNTRY LIKE IRAQ. FAKE SUICIDE ATTACKS MADE BY BRITISH INTELLIGENCE BASED IN UAE (DUBAI AND ABU DHABI, HEADQUARTER OF MI6 IN THIS REGION)


FAKE POLICE 'TEROR' RAID IN NORTH WEST DESIGNED TO TERRORIZE PAKISTANIS LIVING IN THE UK AND BUY A NEW VIRGINITY TO SMITH AT THE HOME OFFICE AFTER PORNOGRAPHIC SCANDAL. RAID BASED ON FAKE INTELLIGENCE AND LIES


LaRouche: Destabilization of Pakistan Exactly What British Wanted



February 26, 2009 (LPAC)--Today, Lyndon LaRouche commented on the escalating destabilization of Pakistan: "The ongoing destabilization of Pakistan, including the breakup of the military is the result of the decision to oust former President Pervez Musharraf. This is exactly the situation that the British and their Saudi allies wanted. People did not listen to my warnings. I am proven right and they were wrong. They don't understand the region. Therefore, I question the wisdom of any future proposals they make on that basis.”


Demonstrations continued throughout Pakistan and Punjab in protest against the Supreme Court decision, issued on February 24, to ban former prime minister and leader of the opposition, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif, and his brother and chief minister of Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif, from contesting elections and holding office.


The Sharif brothers were banned from contesting elections because of a criminal conviction related to the 1999 military coup by former president Pervez Musharraf, which ended Sharif's second term as prime minister. On Feb. 24, Prime Minister Asif Ali Zardari imposed a two-month governor's rule in Punjab and Governor Salmaan Taseer took over the affairs of the province.


The timing of the Supreme Court could not have been worse. Three of Pakistan's top officials--Army Chief Gen. Ashfaq Kiyani, Foreign Minister Qureshi and Defense Minister Mukhtar are in Washington attending tripartite meetings involving U.S., Afghanistan and Pakistan to help the Obama administration to formulate a new Afghanistan policy. In addition, Pakistan has been informally divided last week when the Pakistani government withdrew its writ from the Malakand Division in northwest, leaving a huge swath of land in the hands of anti-Islamabad, anti-U.S. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) jihadis.


This Supreme Court ruling will further divide the country. Already, Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani, a Punjabi, said on Feb.25 "democracy had been weakened by the Supreme Court's decision" to ban former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his brother, Shabaz, from contesting elections.
