The unprovoked attack by NATO forces has angered the nation well beyond all previous levels. At least 24 soldiers were martyred in this unprovoked attack. This attack has taken place at a time when a memo, allegedly written by a US citizen named Hussain Haqqani, is under investigation by the authorities. It is said the authorities are questioning this US citizen. It is of interest to note that the secret documents recovered from the US embassy in Teheran, and published by the Iranian authorities as Tehran Papers, mention a student leader of Karachi named Husain Haqqani who was on the payroll of the US authorities in Pakistan. It is not clear as to whether this is the same individual who became our ambassador to the US. That the ongoing questioning of this individual in connection with a memo aimed at destroying Pakistans military strength and independence was the immediate cause of the attack cannot be ruled out. The NATO authorities have regretted the attack. Their regret, if any, might be that the attack did not have the desired effect, at least not in the short run. What is the US doing in our backyard along with the UK? Why is it in Afghanistan and why has it been continually destabilizing this country? Why is the US embarked on a suicide mission which will inevitably lead to World War III? It is because those who control the US want World War III. It is well established by researchers that the US government, the US Congress, the US armed forces and its so called diplomatic staff, work, not for the people of the US, but for a hidden cabal. They are mere stooges who carry out orders that come from elsewhere. Churchill called it the High Cabal. This cabal of international bankers is a set of families tied by blood and inter-marriages and secret societies. In 1961 President Kennedy talked to the media about secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. For this cabal the people of Europe and USA, as well as the rest of the world, are mere cannon fodder that, through wars manipulated and controlled on all sides by it, adds to its staggering wealth and power, inexorably paving the way to a One World Government under its control. President Woodrow Wilson wrote: Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had mens views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. President Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to an adviser: The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centres has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson. Col. Prouty, briefing officer to the US President from 1955-1963 wrote of a Secret Team of security-cleared individuals in and out of government who receive secret intelligence data gathered by the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) and who react to those data The power of the Team derives from its vast intra-governmental undercover infrastructure and its direct relationship with great private industries, mutual funds and investment houses, universities, and the news media, including foreign and domestic publishing housesAll true members of the Team remain in the power center whether in office with the incumbent administration or out of office with the hard-core set. They simply rotate to and from official jobs and the business world or the pleasant haven of academe. William Engdahl wrote in his book A Century of War Anglo American Oil Politics and the New World Order that the power of the US currency and its military were intertwined into a single commodity petroleum. It was for petroleum that British, American, German, French, Italian and other nations called their soldiers to warOil played a decisive role in the collapse of the Soviet Union. Oil defined American foreign policy in much of the world during the cold war. And oil defines American military actions since the end of the cold war as never before. It was in 2006 that a Ralph Peters published an article in the Armed forces Journal with the title Blood Borders How a Better Middle East Would Look. In this article the maps of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan were redrawn. Professor Chossudovsky wrote in 2007: The ultimate objective, combining military action, covert intelligence operations and war propaganda, is to break down the national fabric and transform sovereign countries into open economic territories, where natural resources can be plundered and confiscated under free market supervision. This control also extends to strategic oil and gas pipeline corridors (e.g. Afghanistan). What are American agents like Raymond Davis and others, including diplomats, along with Blackwater mercenaries really doing in Pakistan? What are they doing in Balochistan, in Sind, in Punjab, in KPK and in Gilgit-Baltistan? Professor Chossudovsky writes: It is worth noting that the triggering of sectarian divisions and 'civil wars is contemplated in the process of redrawing of the map of the Middle East, where countries are slated to be broken up and transformed into territories. The map of the New Middle East, although not official, has been used by the US National War Academy. It was recently published in the Armed Forces Journal (June 2006). In this map, nation states are broken up, international borders are redefined along sectarian-ethnic lines, broadly in accordance with the interests of the Anglo-American oil giants. The map has also been used in a training program at NATOs Defense College for senior military officers. Pakistan may not want war but war is being imposed on Pakistan. While the task of diplomacy is to delay inevitable wars, the Pakistani leadership should sit down for two months to chalk out a long term strategy with national consensus and only then talk to the Americans. We can defend our homeland effectively provided we prepare day and night, quietly, fearlessly and with determination for the inevitable World War III.
