Some Context for What's Transpiring in Pakistan and What Not to do in the Upcoming 2013 ElectionsZahir Ebrahim for Salem-News.com
Com'on you idle spectators and bullshit purveyors (those who deliver crap in the opportunity they get in the media), all my good friends I am sure.
(WASHINGTON DC) - The New SAVAK in Pakistan, the latest spate of shia killings, should be examined in the context given below and the senseless creation of “revolutionary times” across the world will begin to make sense. Pakistan is a component of it. That component is tickled through sectarianism as that is the genius of our peoples. Other nations are tickled according to their own respective genius minds. The New SAVAK in Pakistan works for these supermen gods in no less a measure than the old SAVAK worked for its own almighty god. Is this stuff rocket science you people? Why can't learned people in Pakistan see it? Especially why can't the high falutin armchair analysts, and the defense analysts, who have routine access to media see it? Look at my examination of the overarching context below. Does that sound like American empire or Zionist empire to any of you? Or does it appear exactly what it is -- an Oligarchic Empire for World Government being constructed with “an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece” (Hard Road to World Order, CFR 1974 – read the superman's paper if you think I make things up with my unconstrained hyperactive imagination)!
Com'on you idle spectators and bullshit purveyors (those who deliver crap in the opportunity they get in the media), all my good friends I am sure. Six feet under the maggots can't tell the bloody difference. Only the dead have seen the end of war, says Plato. Sure -- those living see it everyday. And Most recently, in the systematic Muslim killings in Pakistan where, in the immediate aftermath of targeting the Hazara shias in Quetta, the shia eye surgeon, Dr. Ali Haider, and his 11-year-old son Murtaza Haider, in Lahore this past Monday, 18 Feb. 2013, were ruthlessly dispatched to their maker prematurely. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ .
You, me, all of us, don't speak up right now, you, all of you my friends in Pakistan, they are coming for you and me next --- for this is the harvest of remaining silent when ZA Bhutto was declaring the Qadianis non-Muslims. Who the fck gives the right to anyone to challenge anyone's beliefs; let alone deny a people their political, religious, civil, and basic human rights, including to not be killed by either the pirate or the emperor for their beliefs, inheritance, ethnicity, their land, whatever? You open that can of worms by the state giving legitimacy to calling one group “kafir”, and now the Shias and Ismailis are the new “kafirs” today. Following that, who's next? YOU, my sunni friends, who are silently watching the spectacle of shia deaths and demonization, just as both together previously spectated the Qadiani pogroms in silence; you and your parents, and your siblings still living in Pakistan and unlucky enough to not have the Green Card or Canadian citizenship.
It is these cracks and lacunas in our sectarian ethos which are perennially ripe for harvest for the “revolutionary times”, we see being enacted today in Pakistan. Unless we get rid of these sectarian cracks that are repeatedly and deliberately enlarged into fault-lines by empire builders who know how to both cultivate and harvest them most efficiently for “imperial mobilization”, we are burnt toast.
And learned people who are supposed to have the wherewithal to lead the charge, to educate the public mind to what's really going on, to motivate them to stand up, have all been turned into glorified House Niggers and useful idiots.
Never too late to throw that yoke of servitude---even for house niggers and silent bystanders---and for selfish reasons of self-preservation if not for altruistic concern for anyone else.
So what can we do? Two things to begin with:
1) Perceptively comprehend the overarching motivation of the super-terrorists in order to come up with proper self-defence. See my article unlayering reality below. Of all the lies the “vulgar propagandist” (Chomsky's epithet, not mine) Bernard Lewis spinned on Islam over the years, the one thing he stated most accurately was: “Terrorism requires only a few. Obviously the West must defend itself by whatever means will be effective. But in devising means to fight the [super]terrorist, it would surely be useful to understand the forces that drive them.” Well, other victims can play at that table as well.
2) Bravely speak up, stand up, be part of the making your presence felt in society by giving up the silence of the lamb, the ostrich, and the coward.
In that speaking up, and standing up, boycott the forthcoming Pakistani elections.
Not participating is a resounding NO vote to reject the entire corrupt system. Do not participate in a fabricated system designed to ab initio continue its servility to massa; all waters run only Westward, even if wearing the turban, the beard, clean-shaved, in uniform, in awami-libas, in duppatta, in burqa – and that includes Imran Khan, the favorite savior of the young generation.
Imran Khan is part of the Difa-e-Pakistan Council (Defence of Pakistan Council – DPC) group of “militant Islam” formerly known by different acronyms, SSP, LET, LEJ, ASWJ, JuD (I lost track), who are openly supported by the Punjab government (PML-N’s Chief Minister in Punjab Shahbaz Sharif et. al.), and occasionally flirting with the “moderate Islam” of Tahir-ul-Qadri. And both “Islams” are supported by different factions within the Pak military, which in turn is paid from the Western tax-payers hard earned monies to become the coveted Military Inc. of Pakistan with the West's great blessing. This praetorian guard is now fully invested in staying America's proxy army in Pakistan. The combined output of all these versions of “Islams” and their open and secret benefactors is to lay the groundwork for “revolutionary Islam”, whether or not they each realize it. I am sure General Hameed Gul understands this better than the brainless posterboy of modernity, Imran Khan, his foolish protégé. But then again, perhaps not, as it was this traitor to Muslims and to Pakistan who gave to neighbouring Afghanistan “their Vietnam War” in service to his massa purveying the fiction of “strategic depth” to carry the Pakistan army along.
Imran Khan is the worst Trojan horse of them all – why? Because he is presented as “Mr. clean” and unrecognizable by the masses as being worse than “Mr. Ten Percent” from whom many Pakistanis knew what to expect from the very beginning. I have the feeling that Imran Khan will deliver the worst nightmare yet to simpleton Pakistanis. All his plans are outright scams to feed more people off of the gravy train of state treasury. All his plans are plans to loot and plunder anew – since he cannot harvest any of the old sponged out stuff. His energy plan or education plan for instance? After HEC under Ata ur Rahman and Sohail Naqvi squandered billions in crap, Imran Khan is proposing to spend trillions, 2.5 trillion in fact, to replace one crap with another crap. He wants to make English compulsory and the medium of instruction after 8th grade in Urdu medium and public schools to bring them at parity with English medium schools; and teach everyone in Pakistan the same standardized curriculum. What is that mother? Even India which is ahead of us in all metrics education, does not have such an insane policy. Yet they have IITs which surpass the best IVYs in America in terms of competition to get in. The son of Infosys president couldn't get into IIT so he went to Cornell – as a safety school! We don't have one decent university in Pakistan where I would love to send my own children and this moron now wants to spend 2.5 trillion rupees in another boondoggle? Increasing literacy rate is great goal – it cannot be carried out in a slave state with no economy to absorb them. The development of a nation cannot happen overnight – only its rape and theft in the name of doing speciously sounding great things can happen overnight. Just like Ata Ur Rahman did, and no one could challenge that mother.
As for Imran Khan's energy policy? You think anyone in Pakistan has the balls to go against the WB-IMF tag team which has neo-liberalized, i.e., privatized our economy? See what Thomas Freidman says about it below: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist -- McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.” He is just offering more scams and only fools and simpletons will go for them---that is our Pakistani genius. And I say, enough of being fcking simpletons!

Comes in layers.
The outer layer, when peeled, shows the next inner layer.
And so on down to the core.
It is difficult to get to the core of reality, without first unpeeling it, layer by layer.
The empirical fact however is that it is not mentioned in the mainstream, and by many others in dissentstream either, because the conspiracy is to not even acknowledge that the onion exists at all for social engineering of ‘United we Stand’ and ‘introducing beneficial cognitive diversity’ to mislead the public.
But the outer layer of the onion is not the entire onion, however persuasive and inviting it may appear!
These are mere labels, the neocons, neoconservatives, neo-cons, they mean nothing by themselves.
America has been involved in warfare from Wounded Knee to Afghanistan, and before WWII, there were no neo-cons by that name.
So how does one explain America’s vast military-industrial-academe-
But why do they wage wars?
The focus on Israel, and the Jewish Lobby, in my view, can at times be a gigantic red herring. See: “Pamphlet: How To Return to Palestine”, and “The white man's burden still looks white in color!”. The real focus must remain on the oligarchy which funds all sides of wars, and have been doing so for 250 years, and for what eventual purpose?
The War on Terror, the war on Afghanistan, the war on Iraq, the war on Pakistan, the war on Iran, on whatever mantras and asinine pretexts, by themselves make no sense – as the war of neo-conservatism – and it is easy to pin it upon the most visible harbingers for their most obvious motives! The outer layer of the onion.
And what about the silent economic wars of neo-liberalism – aka free trade?
Thomas Friedman best captured the interplay of these two sides of the imperial coin – the thunderous wars of shock and awe, and the matching silent wars of hunger and deprivations due to the loot and plunder of global natural resources via the stranglehold of contrived third world debt – in his 1999 New York Times column titled Manifesto for a Fast World: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist -- McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.”
But peel down behind both types of wars, behind both philosophies of primacy which are as old as hegemony, as old as mankind, and we get World Government.
Global Governance would not be possible without the transformative abilities of these wars which seed controlled chaos, deprivations, disenfranchisement, and fabricated public appeals to authorities to resolve matters. Which of course they subsequently do, with greater and greater centralization of powers into the private hands of the same oligarchy who create the very crises for which they ex post facto present their own preferred solutions. See: Response to Financial Times Gideon Rachman's 'And now for a world government'.
David Ben Gurion aptly described this Machiavellian modus operandi as “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.
The unlayering is important to get to the heart of the matter, quickly, before it is too late. And one of the reason it is not unlayered in time, is to seed fait accompli. That is the master political science. To understand this political science which is time-critical and which is what enables only narrating these matters ex post facto, see: “Of Ostriches and Rebels on The Hard Road to World Order”.
That too, by itself, is still not the inner most core of the onion, only the next layer down, but it already demonstrates that focus on the outer layer of the onion of reality, the visible reality, makes for a great red herring.
No one in Plato’s cave can ever figure out the reality behind the images on the screen, by examining, and in no matter what excruciating a scholarship, the images on the screen before them.
That is why the outer layer of the onion, whether one sees the onion at all or not, is often pointless garbage.
Whenever I cook dinner at home, I always throw away the outer layer of the onion, it tastes terrible :-)
