Are the US on the brink of war?

The propaganda machine has been spewing out anti Pakistan and Iran stuff for the last few days now, and the tense situation between the US and Pakistan (and, therefore, China) and Iran don’t appear to be abating.

If you want to get up to speed on the situation with Pakistan, here are some bits you should read. Please remember though, that these might not all be 100% true because, after all, all is fair in love and war! I’ll tackle the topic of Iran tomorrow because this is gonna be pretty long!

PAKISTAN

Pakistan: US suspends $800m of military aid – Money makes the world go around. The interesting bit in this article is: “Until we get through these difficulties, we will hold back some of the money that the American taxpayers have committed to give them.” Funny that… I don’t remember the people of the US or the UK committing to giving money to Pakistan – but hey, who cares if your hard-earned money gets paid in taxes to the government under the guise that it is to keep your country running only to then wire it over to Pakistan so that it can do a great job a feeding corruption? Taxpayers – you should be mad!

US drone strikes in Pakistan follow aid cut – The Pakistani government really slammed the US for the drone attacks in their country and accused the US of killing innocent people – this is more than likely to be the case – and I don’t know about you, but if I were in Pakistan, I wouldn’t be seeing this sort of action as anything other than war-like.

Pakistan restricts movement of American diplomats
Al-Qaedas No2 leader Killed in Pakistan – Bringing it right back down to the ‘real’ issue at hand – the war on terrorism. Incidentally, I feel I should mention that the US (and, therefore, the UK) love to describe things as wars. As much as the people in the countries targeted by the ‘war on terror’ are very likely to feel that their country is, in fact, just at war (even though the war is supposed to be being fought with a group and an idea rather than a country) the western world wouldn’t want you to believe that. I might do a whole post on the war on terror some other time because it’s a lot to go into.

Cell phones link Pakistan to U.S. embassy attack – This is the point when you realise that the wheels are being put in motion for the proverbial shit to hit the fan.

Pakistan warns US against hot pursuit on its soil – The anti US gumpf kicks in proper.

Pakistan Spread Nuclear Weapon Technology – The US start to bring out the big guns. This is starting to build up the case against the ‘offending’ countries so that the people of the US (and, the US government would hope, the rest of the world) would begin to see Pakistan as a threat. Typical propaganda because if the relationship with Pak wasn’t tense then this probably wouldn’t have made the news yet.) This is when I started thinking that a possible invasion plan could be afoot.

Sen. Graham: U.S. won’t aid a Pakistan that ‘will help kill American troops’ – The US are accusing Pakistan of aiding terrorist organisations, Pakistan denies this and makes the point that they are too tied up with their own problems to stretch to fighting against a US enemy aswell. (Let’s not forget here that most of the money being sent to Pakistan from the west is simply funding corruption anyway.)

Afghanistan warns Pakistan about border fighting – The relationship between Pak and Afghan has experiences its ups and downs, with Afghan having been an occasional ally; however, the newly created US pawn will no longer be an ally if the relationship between the US and Pak is on the rocks.

Pakistan Holds Special Military Meeting Amid US Tensions – In response to the claims made by the US that the ISI in Pak are supporting a terrorist group, Pakistan retort that the terrorist group was actually trained by the CIA. Speaking Sunday in Islamabad, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said the Haqqani network is not operating from Pakistan. He countered U.S. claims by alleging the network was established and trained by the American CIA with support from Pakistan to fight the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s.
Pakistan PM directs Khar to end US visit, return home
Imran Khan calls for Britain to cut aid to Pakistan – Pakistani opposition politician Imran Khan has urged the UK to cut aid to his country, saying it fuels corruption. At this point you will be expecting the UK to jump on the anti Pak revelations – the UK do not want to be seen to be funding corruption and will therefore draw the attention away from that issue and back onto how dangerous Pakistan are as a reason to halt funding.

Alleged UK cell charged with terror training in Pakistan – Guess what? The UK are official on the bandwagon!

Growing clamor in US to punish Pakistan for ‘act of war’ – Punish is a strange word, isn’t it? While a television journalist openly described Pakistan’s allegedly proxy attack on the US embassy in Kabul as an “act of war” to foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar’s face, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told a Sunday talk show that “The sovereign nation of Pakistan is engaging in hostile acts against the United States and our ally Afghanistan that must cease.”
Pakistan turns to China as ties with U.S. suffer – China had already warning the US back in May to stop picking on Pakistan. The relationship between Pak and China are very close. This is the point where you need to start to worry because you don’t want to piss off China! Something makes me think that we might start hearing something about Russia soon too.

For those of you out there who are suspicious of HAARP, a suggestion would be to keep an eye on Iran and Pakistan for ‘natural’ disasters over the next few weeks.
