Rand Corporation, War, Pakistan.



Are we going to see a big war in Pakistan?

Chris Floyd, at Empire Burlesque, 10 June 2008, wrote about the Rand Corporation and war in Pakistan. (Rand X: Experts Mark Target for Terror War Expansion)

"RAND (the original think tank, conceived in the very bowels of the military-industrial complex) announced that the 'good war' in Afghanistan will surely be lost…unless Pakistan is scoured clean of its terrorist sanctuaries – and of its terrorist sympathizers in high places..."

AP reports:

Pakistani intelligence agents and paramilitary forces have helped train Taliban insurgents and have given them information about American troop movements in Afghanistan, said a report published Monday by a U.S. think tank. The study by the RAND Corp. also warned that the U.S. will face "crippling, long-term consequences" in Afghanistan if Taliban sanctuaries in Pakistan are not eliminated.

Paul Joseph Watson & Yihan Dai, at Prison Planet.com, 30 October 2008, write that Rand lobbied the Pentagon to start a war to save the US economy.html

According to Chinese media reports, the RAND Corporation allegedly wants a war against a major foreign power in an attempt to stimulate the American economy.

The reports claim French media news sources uncovered the proposal.

The RAND Corporation reportedly is linked to the U.S. military-industrial complex and the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie foundations.

Current directors of RAND 'include Frank Charles Carlucci III, former Defense Secretary and Deputy Director of the CIA, Ronald L. Olson, Council on Foreign Relations luminary and former Secretary of Labor, and Carl Bildt, top Bilderberg member and former Swedish Prime Minister.'

China’s biggest media outlet, Sohu.com, speculated that the target of the new war could be China or Russia, but that it could also be a middle eastern country.

Pakistan seems like a very likely target.

The reported RAND proposal may tie in with recent comments, made by Joe Biden, Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and others, that Barack Obama will face a major “international crisis” soon after taking office.

Michael Bayer, chairman of a key Pentagon advisory panel, also said that the next administration will face an international crisis within months of taking office.
