Talha Mujaddidi analyzes the "Quagmire of Imperial Slavery" for Axis of Logic from inside Pakistan: In January, 2005, Wajid Shamsul Hasan, former Pakistan High Commissioner to the U.K. wrote the following alert and warning:
"When it was over, I realised that everything had happened 'according to the plan'. This brings out of me the apprehension: are our military rulers working on an a similar agenda or something that has been laid out for them in the various assessment reports over the years by the National Intelligence Council (NIC) in joint collaboration with CIA. It was poor Miraj Khalid who as interim prime minister in early 1997 had dared to confide to the Pakistanis that CIA had forecast Pakistan's denouement by the year 2015. ... the NIC report cast a dark shadow on Pakistan's future five years ago.
"It said that by the year 2015 Pakistan would be a failed state, ripe with civil war, bloodshed, inter-provincial rivalries and a struggle for control of its nuclear weapons and its complete Talibanization. It had predicted, 'Pakistan will not recover easily from decades of political and economic mismanagement, divisive policies, lawlessness, corruption and ethnic friction'. Nascent democratic reforms will produce little change in the face of opposition from an entrenched political elite and radical Islamic parties. Further domestic decline would benefit Islamic political activists, who may significantly increase their role in national politics and alter the makeup and cohesion of the military, once Pakistan's most capable institution. In a climate of continuing domestic turmoil, the central government's control probably will be reduced to the Punjabi heartland and the economic hub of Karachi."
Al Basrah reported in August, 2008, that Senator Nisar A. Memon of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q warned Pakistan's upper house that "the Americans harboured the designs of breaking up Pakistan." He cited an earlier CIA report that predicted a "Yugoslavia-like fate for Pakistan in a decade with civil war, bloodshed and inter-provincial rivalries as seen in Balochsitan". He also quoted a Global Research report which alleged that, British intelligence agencies were providing covert support to Balochistan's terrorist separatists and that "chaos and anarchy would be created through economic disruption, as result of which the International Monetary Fund would take Pakistan in its grip."
While military operations continue in tribal areas of Pakistan, the Pakistani establishment is still stuck in the maze that was created by US Imperialist juggernauts and implemented to near perfection by former President and Army Chief of Pakistan Pervaiz Musharraf. Musharraf has done grave harm to the national security of Pakistan. The tremors of his jolts are still reverberating in Pakistani political and public spheres. The U-turns that Musharraf took under US pressure inflicted grave damages to Pakistan's National and regional interests. Musharraf destroyed Pakistan's Kashmir policy, Afghanistan policy, he bowed down in front of India, worst of all he gave a blank check to Washington to expand their CIA and FBI setup in Pakistan.
LONDON, January 29, 2005: It seems that our rulers, having learnt no lesson, stand condemned to repeat the same criminal blunders that converted Pakistan's most populated province into an independent state following the surrender of the Pakistani generals to the Indian army. That was December 1971.
Now 34 years later Pakistan has drifted into a similar situation in its biggest province. We had then, as now, a power drunk general heading an equally obdurate military coterie that would not listen to voices of reason, pleadings of political and saner elements for a democratic settlement according to the electoral verdict of the majority. Rest is history.
Balochistan today is facing a similar military operation as of erstwhile East Pakistan. President General Musharraf has cast the die. Not only a full-fledged military operation with all its fire and fury has been launched though denied by his media minions, the most deplorable rape of a doctor allegedly by army personnel, seems to have plunged a proud people into an irreparable and irreversible grief and a struggle that would be bloody with horrendous consequences.
Musharraf is gone, but his legacy of Imperial slavery is being continued whole-heartedly by President Zardari and his cronies. Of course the Pakistani parliament is a rubber-stamp body of most efficient crooks. The Pakistani presidency and Parliament is under complete control of CIA. The opposition parties are as corrupt as ruling PPP and are unable to stand up to Imperial hegemony. The Pakistani economy is completely under IMF and WB control with key former Citibank 'goons' in charge of destroying the industrial base of Pakistan.
Pakistan is right now in the midst of a brutal assault led by the U.S./Zionist energy-greedy, global imperialists. Aiding them in their enterprise are CIA, RAW (Indian Intel), Mossad, and MI6. They are targeting the complete destabilization of Pakistan, the destruction and dismantling of Pakistan's nuclear program, control of oil, gas, and mineral rich, strategically-located Baluchistan, and North West Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan. The Indians are in it for their old Bharatmata (Greater India) plan of making Pakistan their satellite state.
Death Squads, Divisions and Supporting Terrorism
The complex power game that is going on right now in NWFP is based on some key methods and objectives.
Assassination: The CIA is using the same tactics that Negroponte used earlier in Honduras and Nicaragua, and then later in Iraq. These include the creation of local death squads and militias who kill one another and those listed for assassination by the CIA. (refer to Jeremy Scahill's bestseller. 'Blackwater').
Dividing to conquer: Different tribes and sub-tribes in Tribal areas of Pakistan are being set against one another and against the Pakistan Army. General McChrystal (former JSOC commander) has taken over command in Afghanistan, where Negroponte's methods are being used again but they will not succeed as they did in Iraq. The Soviets have failed, using such tactics before when they were trying to suppress the mujahedeen.
