for inclusion in the 8th Edition of The Poor-Man's Guide to Modernity.
Alas – no one paid any attention to it then, now seven years and counting...
- how was it possible that under the very nose of the all powerful military Government in the modern Federal Capital could this shockingly antediluvian 'al qaeeda' construct have been allowed to germinate in plain sight, and pretty much all are coming up as empty handed;
- just as in the case of asking the same question of how 911 was allowed to be perpetrated by the 'evil jihadis' using sophisticated flying machines that they only learned to fly on flight simulators and subsequently hijacked with such ease with this incredibly antediluvian weapon systems often referred to as 'box cutters' under the very noses of the most armed to the teeth nuclear superpower state with an annual military defense budget that far exceeds that of the next two dozen nations combined, and similarly coming up empty handed!
- (1) More credibility and justification to continue fueling the fiction of global 'war on terror' (see for instance “Al-Qaeda, the eternal covert operation” ) – and not surprisingly in recent news reports even that linkage to al-qaeeda has been made manifest, even throwing in the name of Daniel Pearl for good measure ;
- (2) Continued desensitization of the locals to Muslims killing Muslims (and the Muslim 'state' being just another one of the actors in the contrived mayhem) to further the global agenda of getting the 'natives' to do the colonizing work – Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, (see the excellent summary in “Condi's creative chaos” ) – thus witness that there is no uproar among the local public, they accepted the concept of curfew and curtailment of their movements meekly under the pretext of necessity (what hasn't been wrought under the doctrine of necessity) whereas even if Sir Rushdie sneezes or a cartoon is created somewhere in deliberate provocation, all hell breaks loose in Pakistan to show precisely that 'Moslems' are antiquated fundamentalist nations harboring 'militant Islamists' (see “Satanic Pictures” ), and that it's “Not [even] a Clash of Civilizations, It's a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians” (see Daniel Pipes) ;
- (3) A broader agenda enacted piece-meal and known only to the puppeteers for what's in store for Pakistan between now and 2012 is being successfully orchestrated (and which we can intelligently guess at but, for which we shall find no receipts until ex post facto, i.e., after fait accompli). The timing of the appearance of this book written by a 'native informant' isn't just accidental (“Divide Pakistan: To Eliminate Terrorism” and CNN is already running its slick advertisement ), and nor is Pakistan being the most willing of all client states dutifully serving empire ever in question (for instance, see “Pakistan to help as the US's jailer”  or “Bush Authorizes New Covert Action against Iran”  or “CIA running black propaganda operation against Iran, Syria and Lebanon, officials say” ).
- So, can we say that we know for a fact that Bush hasn't authorized a similar covert-ops by black-ops forces in Pakistan to further substantiate, by hook or by crook, the raison d'être for continuing the 'war on terror', especially when it needs to be continually primed for a 'lifetime', and Pakistan is the perfect place of harvest for its plentiful recruits with already in-place “doctrinal motivation” left over from winning World War III, i.e., the Cold War?
- We do however know for a fact that its converse is true, and in the words of empire itself, that the empire does covert-ops a-plenty to achieve its “imperial mobilization” under the cover of “plausible deniability”. Given this realist's realpolitik understanding of the world of hectoring hegemons we live in who openly proclaim “hegemony is as old as mankind”, what are the most obvious first-questions to ask in attempting to unravel this rather bizarre, but easily avertable, Lal Masjid blood bath of manufactured innocent patsies set up for this propagandist purpose of aiding in the crafting of “Terror Central”?
- (1) to fully disengage from the fiction of 'war on terror'
- (2) to close our borders not just to the so called 'islamofascists' and various and sundry cultivated 'terrorists', but to the American agenda and its black-ops agents moving freely throughout the country as their own backyard synthesizing and financing 'militant Islam' under 'plausible deniability' and several degrees of separation
- (3) to close down and banish all American military bases immediately from Pakistani soil
- (4) and to point our deterrence-inducing weapons that we have so covetously developed ostensibly for the defense of our own peoples at much sacrifice to our social spendings and developmental economics including clean drinking water in our taps, directly towards all the geopolitical 'hectoring hegemons' outside of our borders on mated full alert in a genuinely threatening 'Samson Option' of our own, fully disclosed as our ultimate, publicly mandated, political doctrine for a 'MAD' self-defense such that no one, not even the world's lone superpower and its nuclear armed minions,  can co-opt our self-defense by arm twisting games of poker on the Grand Chessboard – the only sensible (sic!) and rational raison d'être for possessing such deterrence in the first place
