I am Pakistani ruling elite and I so want to understand what this 'war on terror' is really all about and why Pakistan is being destabilized – the big picture. But I am just too busy and don't have time to read a lot.
I am a Pakistani journalist and I witnessed poor Benazir Bhutto being blown up by the Al Qaeeda! I know who killed her. “Why is it difficult to believe that the same Islamist network that tried to eliminate President Musharraf, Shaukat Aziz, Aftab Sherpao and Benazir Bhutto on October 18 may be responsible for her murder on December 27?”
I am a genuinely patriotic Pakistani politician and I think Al Qaeeda is more than just real; it is the biggest threat to humanity since Hitler. I too believe 'that the fight against militants is “our war”, not just America’s war'!
I am the famous patriotic Pakistani Black-Coats and I know all about 'rule of law' and legalism, including international law, Pakistani law, signing the PCO, not signing the PCO, the role of Pakistani judiciary in aiding and abetting Pakistani military dictators and then protesting in Black after the hearty meal of 900 mice, crime and punishment, pirates and emperors, and of course, all about the proper functioning of a working democracy which serves its peoples rather than the imperial interests. As I am well read in both Machiavellian and Orwellian state-craft, and especially in the 'technique of infamy', I judicially assert that this 'Al Qaeeda' menace is for real and that they will indeed hijack our 'loose nukes'! We must relentlessly wage a war of terror upon this “very petri dish of international terrorism” and I will not permit any challenges to this governmental policy in my patriotic court rooms!
I am a brilliant Pakistani academic, a notable scientist, an astute political thinker, a prominent gadfly, a Human Rights activist, and Bin Laden is certainly for real! He magically carried out 911 from his cave in Afghanistan just like the Pentagon says it did; and Al-Qaeeda is an enormous 'threat from within' to Pakistan and to the rest of the world just like the White House says it is! And yes I am a gadfly – look, I even call what America is doing to the world “imperialism”. In this 'war on terror', we are faced with an epic battle “Between Imperialism and Islamism”!
I am a brilliant Washington Post columnist and I assert: “Pakistan, with its two dozen nuclear weapons, popular and official support for Kashmiri and Taliban terrorism, and political instability, is ultimately a greater threat to world peace than Afghanistan and Iraq combined.”
