The Day After – American Agenda for Pakistan March 21, 2009
Tuesday, 24 March 2009 16:52
by Zahir Ebrahim

Dateline Saturday March 21, 2009, California, United States of America || Revised March 24.

This morning I was surprised to find in DAWN, Pakistan's largest English language daily, the following opinion by Mr. Arshad Zaman titled 'Why aren't we acting now?', which began:

THIS article poses two questions: on the day after US/Nato forces invade and occupy some of Balochistan and Waziristan, what will we say we should have done, and why aren’t we doing it now? Is this far-fetched? ... One hopes that a small group of patriotic officers in Pakistan are also asking themselves what can be done, and why aren’t we doing it now.”

It is high time that DAWN started publishing subject matter that isn't all 'katputli tamasha' (puppetshow) narratives, and on matters which aren't already fait accompli so that something can still be done about them. I had only yesterday emailed some regular DAWN columnist the following note:

Dear [DAWN columnists],

Take a look at the Dawn of this morning – I captured this snapshot as evidence – not one item here suggests that 'war on terror' is fiction. Not one columnist questions the axioms of empire. Are they all co-opted, mental midgets, or simply savants? How can they be shocked back into reality from their non-stop Mad Tea Party 'United We Stand' unbirthday party celebrations?

I sent the [afore-stated observation] to someone and since two of you are prominently displayed on Dawn's front page today, and you Mr. ... in the inner columns page, as your well-wisher and one who has learnt from all of you, I would like to ask you if [you] are really aware that the 'war on terror' is a fiction? Or that the patricians would wish nothing better than we the plebeians simply amuse ourselves to death on katputli tamashas? Those who participate in enacting/contributing to it through commission or omission – what's your opinion about them? See here, here, and here for how the more sophisticated among the vulgar propagandists work. Why should you (inadvertently) be part of that con-game?


You are too upright to wage a propagandist war on your own peoples. Please see the [latter] reference to appreciate the import of your omissions – for in a war crimes court, such as at Nuremberg, Justice Robert Jackson, the Chief prosecutor for the United States, hath famously stated: “The plans of Adolf Hitler for aggression were just as secret as Mein Kampf, of which over six million copies were published in Germany”. My website contains sufficient analysis and material for anyone who might wish to not be condemned on their vacuous “I didn't know” charge some day. And if you know, and also have column space – something I don't have, and Dawn/News/Nation/NYT/LAT et. al., never publish anything I send them – it should be interesting to see your defense for your omissions.

Well, it is greatly heartening to read Mr. Zaman's oped this morning. To avert the 'day after' question, that mere fact that it has been raised in this fashion is surely the beginning of an auspicious new dawn in Pakistan. Mr. Arshad Zaman is even more prescient in his analysis than he has humbly let on. Before I fully endorse his conclusions, please permit me to flesh out the bigger picture a bit further.

It has all been stated before – but not in Pakistan's newsmedia.

On February 19, 2008, in the aftermath of Benazir Bhutto's assassination, I had observed in my article “Profound Clairvoyance or Blatant Obviousness?”:

Thus perhaps it is better to continue wishing upon the well and not examine Kosovo's independence yesterday at the hands of NATO that was immediately accepted, never mind aided and abetted, by the United States and the EU after NATO and UN forces had been invited in on a 'peace mission' with a UN resolution in 1999. There is certainly no reason to fear Baluchistan – sharing similar grievances and step-sisterly treatment – meeting a similar 'independence' along similar pretexts that will initially invite NATO in to come 'save us' from the 'Taliban' and the 'loose nukes' about to fall into their inglorious hands! The next step – repartition, as examined in the wakeup call. At that time, the repartitioning of Pakistan will make as much sense, and will garner as much world sympathy and support, as Serbia's partition today.

This is the great slight-of-hand devilish power of the New World Order – make things so bad for the peoples through state-sponsored terrorism and the 'war on terror' which legitimizes any inhumanity and any level of destruction including nuclear attacks on non-nuclear nations, that the terrorized peoples will rush to the State (or the world's Policeman) seeking mainly only their security, willingly giving up anything and everything in return including their inalienable Rights as Human Beings First! Far fetched? That is how the Americans and their brethren in the EU and the UK have lost their “essential liberties”. For the Global South, while the modus operandi remain the same, the baby-steps are mere 'pawn' moves on the 'Grand Chessboard'. Study the geostrategic game of the 'hectoring hegemons' with the imperialist's mind and its doctrines, and the baby-steps become obvious. Keep solely focussing on each baby-step as it unfolds by sheer 'happenstance', and the accurate predictions of the next baby-steps appear clairvoyant!

The newly elected team (and their next legatees) will surely ensure that Pakistan's pathetic 'descent into oblivion' transpires, as by their own admission, they accept that the fabricated 'fight against militants is “our war”, not just America’s war'.

None other than America's favorite son's prophetic words appear to be of most relevance in describing this phenomenon of the 'Negro' that has been transpiring in this nation since its 'wretched' inception:

The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man's contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man's representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.” (Martin Luther King).

On April 17, 2008, I re-emphasized in my article 'Bin Laden': Key enabler of “imperial mobilization”, the same point:

The abominable shared fates that unite Iran (“Bush and Iran, again”, WSJ April 15, 2008), and Pakistan, from President Bush calling Pakistan “Terror Central” in 2007, to this week, April 13, 2008, 'clairvoyantly' asserting that “If another September 11 style attack is being planned, it probably is being plotted in Pakistan, and not Afghanistan”. And as already noted in its March 29, 2008 heads-up warning to America by Project Humanbeingsfirst (“Nuclear attack on Iran appears imminent!”), when such a “planned” attack transpires, it “will make Sept. 11 pale by comparison” (Bush, Feb. 13, 2008). That heads-up warning also suggested creating a new peoples institutional barrier against the wanton pursuit of “imperial mobilization” that is otherwise almost trivially enabled by any “new Pearl Harbor” (“How to derail 'imperial mobilization'”). Simultaneously, a rational preemptive self-defense strategy to further deter such Machiavellianly orchestrated “'defensive' US military action” (Brzezinski, Feb. 1, 2007) was also spelled out for the Pakistani ruling elite by Project Humanbeingsfirst in its December 21, 2007 wakeup call (“Wakeup to the grotesque reality of the 'Grand Chessboard'!”).

It is evident that the Pakistani leadership is entirely co-opted into systematically suiciding that nation by its prancing about at the “unbirthday party” with the “Mad Hatter” for the past eight years. Today it appears entirely natural that the United States should just walk right in to 'save' the Pakistanis from the 'radical islamists'. This was quite unimaginable just a few years ago, but every grotesque bomb blast, every few dozen peoples killed in it, every act of extreme violence, political violence, demonstrations, and uncertainty created by 'loose nukes' mantras, culminating in the grotesque assassination of Benazir Bhutto, now makes it the most natural next step for the “truly global superpower”. A deliberate orchestration of “revolutionary times” in Pakistan to make “what is inconceivable in normal times possible in revolutionary times”.

'Why' is rather obvious once again. But for those who do not bother to study the “primacy” craftsmanship of the 'hectoring hegemons', it is about the repartitioning of Pakistan to primarily create an independent and geostrategically significant 'Baluchistan' nation – much like Kosovo's orchestrated independence from Serbia – while finally de-nuking Pakistan! This is only the phase-1 of the repartition plan through violently induced “birth pangs of a new Middle East”, whereby, “whatever we do we have to be certain that we're pushing forward to the new Middle East not going back to the old one.” (Rice, July 21, 2006)

See for instance, the Bernard Lewis Plan for the New Middle East, or the similar Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters' map for the New Middle East, in order to understand what “pushing forward” looks like in the minds of the 'hectoring hegemons'. The key point to note is not the precise new boundary lines, or its merits, but that there should be any new boundary lines forcibly drawn by anyone other than willingly by the peoples who live in these regions!

On September 20, 2008, the day of the shockingly heinous terrorist act upon the Pakistani peoples at the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, I wrote in an urgent appeal to the Pakistani news media “WHAT'S TO BE DONE”:

For Heavens' sake peoples of Pakistan and the World: stop blaming India's RAW, Jihadis' Taliban and Al-Qaeeda, etc., as the prime-movers of this new atrocity on the Pakistani peoples. Misdiagnosing a systemic disease is a sure protocol for never finding its cure!

The destabilization of Pakistan has needed a confluence of patsies and mercenaries. A patsy or dupe is one who strongly believes in what he/she is doing, but is deftly controlled by puppetmasters. A mercenary is one who sells his/her allegiance to the highest bidder at any moment in time. The suicide bombers and cultivated “jihadis” of the likes that Pakistan has never seen in its entire history before, are patsies. The Pakistani ruling-elite are the mercenaries. Between the two, Black-ops and aid dollars have been well spent in Pakistan!

... That is all the reality there is to this new spate of terror in my city in Pakistan – a further excuse for more premeditated, pre-planned, devilishly orchestrated American Intervention in Pakistan until they take over the entire Tribal Belt in order to be in closer proximity to China, and break-off Baluchistan as a new independent neo-liberal 'Gulf State'. The dismemberment and de-nuking of Pakistan is the larger agenda; and Mr. Zardari – like his distinguished predecessor – is the new 'decider' of that agenda.

And “tickling” the terrorists into existence, as CIA Director Michael Hayden observed of CIA's modus operandi: “We use military operations to excite the enemy, prompting him to respond. In that response we learn so much,”. When the victims and their survivors are thus sufficiently mentally “tickled” with the loss of their loved ones under the world's mightiest superpower's barbaric “shock and awe”, and expertly already doctrinally primed with the long-running “god is on your side” jihad to seed the response, the patsies are cleverly armed and guided through Pentagon's Black-ops local handlers' hierarchy to their targets. Sometimes even running false-flag operations this way by setting up diversionary patsies, while the often precision oriented and more devastating terrorist act is directly controlled.

This is the modus operandi to ab initio create the terrorist acts. Once created, the organs of the state, the military, the police, the intelligentsia, the media, the pundits, all naturally focus on the patsies and the victims! Because that is all they see before their un-forensic co-opted eyes. And the Americans send in their military advisors to take-on the menace of these militants before these “jihadis” can take over Pakistan's nuclear weapons and threaten the entire world!

This is how the Americans got into Vietnam too! It begins with pretexts to send in military advisors, with willing complicity of the mercenary rulers already deftly foisted upon the nation for that very purpose – to extend the invitation! Our picturesque Tribal Belt has already become Vietnam for its victims.

Finally, immediately in the aftermath of the shockingly heinous terrorist act upon the Indian peoples in Mumbai in November 2008, I wrote an urgent appeal to the shocked world in the Letter to Editor dated December 05, 2008, titled “The Real Terrorists”:

The atrocity in Mumbai last week, and the bizarre data that is emerging, will make more sense if one stops viewing this heinous terrorist act from the traditional Indian-Pakistan lens. It is urgent that people in both nations begin to appreciate what's at stake so that each may initiate proper self-defense against accurately identified hidden dangers from the overt 'katputli tamashas'.

To appreciate it, please study the methods of Rand Corporation, CFR, Zbigniew Brzezinski, et. al., and acquire an understanding of the notion of world-government. Political science runs the world, and the children of Machiavelli are deeply rooted in waging war by way of deception – a game of conquest “as old as mankind”.

From the East India Company to Free Trade to the War on Terror – all enablers of pretexts for “imperial mobilization” and “full spectrum dominance”.

In the West, typically, the smartest students study humanities and social sciences, and the think-tanks as well as the Pentagon are populated with scores of PhDs in political science and history. What do you think they do there? What do you think they do at the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations, and the Carnegie Endowment for Peace? How about at CFR and RIIA?

They are united in one common global agenda – world government. And they get there by shrewdly employing the overarching political science concept articulated by David Ben Gurion “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”!

And Mr. Arshad Zaman's conclusions therefore are right on the money:

To conclude, then, there are good reasons to believe that a US-Israel-India axis is in pursuit of a coordinated plan to balkanise militarily consequential Muslim states (next Pakistan, then Iran — the order reversed by Musharraf’s weak military policies); ‘secure’ Pakistan’s nuclear weapons; support Baloch irredentism not only to open a corridor both for logistic support of its troops in Afghanistan and for export of Central Asian crude oil, but also to weaken Iran and Pakistan in the long-term; coerce the Pakistan Army into a civil war (advocating suppression of the Taliban by force in Pakistan, while admitting the failure of exactly this policy in Afghanistan); and further consolidate its hold over civilian leadership by creating the kind of financial dependency that would allow it to control ‘democratic’ elections, and to annul their results if they were unfavourable (as Israel did with Hamas).” (DAWN, March 21, 2009 )

I am grateful to DAWN, that even though they regularly never publish any material I send them except for the maiden letter of December 03, 2007, titled “The grand chessboard” which had also carried similar warnings, they have finally, and very courageously I might add, published my perspective through the pen of another rational analyst. I thank them both for their moral service to Pakistan at great risk of offending the rulers of the world.
