PAKISTAN TO BE BROKEN UP?

Khyber Pass

American forces have entered Pakistan.

United States military officials have acknowledged that American forces conducted a raid inside Pakistan on 3 August 2008. (US officials confirm raid inside Pakistan)

There is a belief by some people that the CIA and its friends are trying to break up Pakistan.

Pakistan, a Moslem state with nuclear weapons, is in a strategically important location.

A balkanised Pakistan would be easier to control.

Brig. Asif Haroon Raja, a defence and political analyst, wrote in the Asian Tribune, 10 August 2008, that "Our adversaries based in Kabul are earnestly working upon a chalked out agenda to destabilise, de-Islamise and de-nuclearise Pakistan, disintegrate or balkanise it..." - Pakistan: Grim internal and external situation Asian Tribune

This is where the 'probably dead CIA agent' Osama bin Laden comes into the story.

"The frontier region is considered a likely hideout for Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda's number two, Ayman al-Zawahri." - US forces 'violate' Pakistan territory with attack on Taliban

So, US troops have an excuse to enter Pakistan, just as they previously entered Afghanistan.

What is the attitude of the US presidential candidates?


"Barack Obama has said, on multiple occasions, that he supports taking actions against terrorists who flee across the border into Pakistan, if Pakistani officials are unable or unwilling to act. Obama's position is consistent with U.S. policy, which Bush has acted on.

"John McCain not only disagrees, he's repeatedly criticized Obama's policy, accusing him of wanting to "bomb our ally." Indeed, McCain recently suggested to CNN's Larry King that he, as president, wouldn't even pursue Osama bin Laden if he slipped past the border because 'Pakistan is a sovereign nation.'" - Will McCain Condemn Bush's Incursion Into Pakistan?

Pakistan does not want to be invaded. (Pakistan protests to US over raid)



It looks like the CIA toppled Musharraf.

Reportedly, Bush dumped Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, refusing to take a series of "help me" telephone calls from the man he once described as his 'best buddy'. - Bush's Pakistan 'buddy' cast adrift

There have been various reports that the CIA has been trying to destabilise Pakistan.

1. "For reasons best known to Langley, the CIA headquarters, as well as the Pentagon, Pakistani officials say the Americans were not interested in disrupting the Kabul-based fountainhead of terrorism in Balochistan." - US accused of backing terrorism in Pakistan

2. Pakistan PM Gilani ... "could not muster the courage to tell (Bush) that the CIA was actively involved in an unholy game to destabilise Pakistan." - Pakistan: Grim internal and external situation



3. On 4 September 2007, at least 25 people were killed and 68 injured in two bombings aimed at military intelligence targets in Pakistan's garrison city of Rawalpindi near the capital Islamabad. Blasts hit Pakistan garrison town

This was part of a series of events reportedly aimed at destabilising Musharraf and Pakistan.

There are a number of world leaders who, reportedly, were (1) put into power by the CIA and then (2) toppled by the CIA.

Think of Noriega, Suharto, Saddam Hussein, Marcos...

Why might the CIA want to topple Musharraf.

In 2006, Musharraf wrote a book in which he claimed that Omar Sheikh, one of the primary financers of the 9/11 attacks, may have worked for British intelligence during the 1990s.

“It is believed in some quarters that while Omar Sheikh was at the LSE (London School of Economics) he was recruited by the British intelligence agency MI6,” Musharraf writes in his book, In the Line of Fire: A Memoir.

Musharraf names 9/11 suspect as possible British asset

From US turns against Musharraf, Asia Times Online, January 12, 2006:

"According to a contact who spoke to Asia Times Online, a person close to the US Central Intelligence Agency paid a low-profile visit to New Delhi in the third week of December and briefed strategic planners on Washington's plan to try to curtail the role of the Pakistani army."

On 25 march 2007, the UK's Sunday Telegraph, reportedly close to MI6, stated:

"Two exiled former prime ministers of Pakistan will launch a joint attempt this week to drive the current president, Pervez Musharraf, from power. Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif agreed to join forces during a meeting in London after weeks of political crisis in Pakistan have left its military strongman with a tenuous grip on power."

According to http://www.dnaindia.com/ 'the CIA is in the process of trying to find a replacement for Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf.' Reportedly, the CIA hopes to replace Musharraf with a military officer.

DailyNewsAnalysis India's source is 'a well placed diplomat'.

http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1086625

"The US sent head-of-state hunters from the Central Intelligence Agency to scour the Pakistani military apparatus to identify a suitable replacement for General Pervez Musharraf.

"The extraordinary recruitment mission — reflecting the seriousness of purpose and urgency with which the Bush administration wants to oust its ‘most valuable ally’ — was disclosed recently by a well-placed diplomatic source...

"A team of CIA operatives was subsequently sent to the country to sort out pro-US army officers, one of whom could be considered Musharraf’s successor as the commander-in-chief."

Musharraf

Kiyani

The new head of the Pakistan army is Ashfaq Kiyani.

He has strong links with Washington.

He was at one time the head of ISI, the Pakistan spy agency, which works closely with the Americans.
- Musharraf protege might yet turn on his benefactor

It is possible that the CIA has for some time been planning to topple Musharraf and replace him with someone like Kiyani.

Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte visited Pakistan in November 2007. He held three meetings with General Ashfaq Kiyani, the deputy army chief. (US appears to groom possible Musharraf army successor - The Boston ...)

According to the Washington Post, 26 December 2007, ( U.S. Troops to Head to Pakistan )the new head of the U.S. Special Operations Command, Adm. Eric T. Olson visited Pakistan in August, November and December 2007.

Why does the USA apparently want to topple Musharraf and replace him with a more clearly pro-American general?

In September 2006, CBS produced an interview with Musharraf. In this interview, Musharraf claims that after the 9/11 attacks, then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage threatened Pakistan's military intelligence chief that the U.S. would bomb his country 'back to the Stone Age' if Musharraf didn't cooperate with the USA. (Bush and Musharraf: Friends Again - TIME)

And, of course, in 2006, Musharraf wrote a book in which he stated that Omar Sheikh, one of the primary financers of the 9/11 attacks, may have worked for British intelligence during the 1990s. (xymphora: Omar Sheikh and British intelligence)

Saddened about the latest developments in that sorry country.

The infringement of sovereignty of a nuclear power! A nation with 800,000 men under arms; with American military bases in Pakistan; with their agents roaming the country looking for their fictionally created al-Qaeda; a nation through which all the supplies for Afghanistan go-----the sheer Chutzpah!

Yes Musharaf was toppled by the Americans, as verified by the intensity of visits by American officials to that country just prior to him being toppled.

The militarymen in Pakistan don't learn their lesson do they, in that country?

1)Field Marshal Ayub Khan 1969 (who went public about negative American involvement in the 1965 elections)toppled------then the country breaks up in a civil war.....is this familiar ?

They don't learn.

2) General Zia Ur Rahman, the man who put down the Palestinian Uprising in Jordan 1970, and bought to power in 1977 to teach Bhutto a lesson......killed, along with the entire top brass of Pakistan, sacrificing an American Ambassador, and Brigadier General from the American Army.

They don't learn.

3) Musharaf brought to power, by who else, in 1999. Did their bidding exactly, gave them Pakistanis to be tortured, raped, humiliated, and murdered,......and much much more, but the man loved the Western media and limelight too much......couldn't shut up....one or two words here there, in the wrong place......displeased his masters...so he had to go.

They don't learn.

They do not learn, even though they had clear evidence that Israel has been trying to get at the Pakistan bomb for 30 years, through America and India. They do not learn, but instead facilitate Mossad in Pakistan in the 1980's. They do not learn.

Common sense: Friendship between a staunchly overt Muslim country, founded on Islam, with Jewish dominated America is impossible, with its strong racist undertones. If a relationship between such nations exist, there can only be one relationship, that between a master and an obedient servant. And then even the obedient servant can be punished as with the above.

If you do not react like the Russian to your infringment of national sovereignty as in Georgia, then you are asking for a lot of trouble. More of the same, only bigger and better.

What to do?

1) Send all foreign agents out of your country.

2) Close all American bases in Pakistan, and send 50,000 men stationed on the FATA/Afghan border.

3) Blockade Afghanistan.

4) Tell the world that Osama is long dead, and that al-Qaeda is a fake front for Western and Israeli intelligence.



I often get turets like racists slurs flooding me when I think of Pakistan (I was brought up in the UK) and we must remember though it is easy to read of the evil dastardly nature of the Americans, such things would not be possible, if Mir Jaffars in Pakistan, at the highest levels didn't cooperate with them.

So can the Pakistanis save their nation?
