America :Invading Pakistan

By :Jeff Prager

That we’ve historically invaded sovereign countries while maintaining our own sovereign rights is no secret although it’s not well known.

Whether overtly or covertly we’ve invaded numerous countries in the last 60 years and we’ve deposed a great many democratically elected leaders, no less then 30, and replaced them with brutal tyrants. We’ve bombed no less then 50 countries. We’ve murdered 6 million people just covertly. It’s what we do. We’ve invaded some more then once. Chronologically these would be:

Greece

Italy

Iran

Guatemala

North Vietnam

Hungary

Laos

Haiti

Cuba

Dominican Republic

Ecuador

Congo

Dominican Republic

Ecuador

Brazil

Indonesia

Dominican Republic

Greece

Congo

Greece

South Vietnam

Bolivia

Uruguay

Cambodia

Bolivia

Haiti

Chile

Australia

Angola

Iran

El Salvador

Nicaragua

Panama

El Salvador

Honduras

Haiti

Iraq/Kuwait

Iraq

Afghanistan

Yemen

Pakistan

Haiti

This is far from an exhaustive list but you get the idea. We’re a war-mongering country for the banks and corporations. That’s why our children die. NOT for freedom or democracy. That concept is a fraud.

NOW, we’re preparing to send ground forces into Pakistan. We’re already technically an “invading force” in Pakistan since drones operated from CIA headquarters at Langley and from clandestine bases in Afghanistan have been murdering innocent people for years with the operation stepped up by the Peace President, Barack Obama.

Why he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace is beyond my ability to reason or understand. He should have been awarded a Special “Psychopath of the Century” award by the global civilian population and relegated to a small prison cell and a diet of deep fried Falafel and Pita bread, water-boarded while chained to a cell door while being forced to memorize the Qu’ran in Arabic.

U.S. Military Seeks to Expand Raids in Pakistan

by Mark Mazzetti and Dexter Filkins

WASHINGTON — Senior American military commanders inAfghanistan are pushing for an expanded campaign of Special Operations ground raids across the border into Pakistan’s tribal areas, a risky strategy reflecting the growing frustration with Pakistan’s efforts to root out militants there.

The proposal, described by American officials in Washington and Afghanistan, would escalate military activities inside Pakistan, where the movement of American forces has been largely prohibited because of fears of provoking a backlash.

The plan has not yet been approved, but military and political leaders say a renewed sense of urgency has taken hold, as the deadline approaches for the Obama administration to begin withdrawing its forces from Afghanistan. Even with the risks, military commanders say that using American Special Operations troops could bring an intelligence windfall, if militants were captured, brought back across the border into Afghanistan and interrogated.

WE ARE, and make no mistake because we are the global Nazi’s of the 21st century murdering people worldwide for the multinational corporations and banks. Be glad you live in the US. Anywhere and everywhere else you’d be a fucking target.

    Thank you!

  • Summaya  On December 21, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    I am only surprised the CIA or someone has not got Jeff Prager by now for his blunt views-living in US of A!

  • Rafiq Mian  On December 21, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    I have known US to be idiotic from time to time. That idiotic? Come on? That would mean that the world has all of a sudden become a jungle. On the count of possibility on a scale of (let me shrink the scale) 0-1; “0”.

    Buddy kid – look at the US today; the deficit, the unemployment – do you have a square head on your shoulder – Oh, my God, the head has to be spherical (look alike) !!!!!!

  • Jeff Prager  On December 21, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    The CIA doesn’t care about me. I don’t post anything differently then 1000s of other Americans and I use mainstream sources. Besides, I’m too old to be a threat. 🙂

  • Raheel Dogar  On December 21, 2010 at 6:21 pm

    In some ways, it’s the most important story in the world. The CIA has launched 20 drone attacks against the Taliban in Pakistan in September 2010, the New York Times reports, more than in any other month and twice the typical amount.
    In a TV show, Rachel Maddow asked Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special representative to Pakistan and Afghanistan, whether the American drone campaign amounts to war. “Rachel, war really is hell,” Holbrooke said. She pressed him, saying, “Is it war in Pakistan?”

    Holbrooke’s answer, in essence: You know what you know.

    You’ve seen it. War in the western part of Pakistan? Thousands and thousands of Pakistanis have been killed by the Pakistani Taliban – thousands. Those are the people who trained the Times Square bomber.

    The al-Qaeda is sitting up there. The Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani are sitting up there, killing Americans, attacking the Indian embassy. These are really bad people. You mentioned Miranshah in your opening remarks. Miranshah is one of the headquarters of one of the groups
    that kills a lot of Americans.

    If you’re in a war, you can’t — you can’t kid yourself about it. I’ve seen a lot of wars. I hate them more than anything you can imagine. But in this particular case, as the president has said repeatedly, our own homeland security is directly involved.

  • Tarah Sarwar  On December 21, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    What were once unacknowledged, relatively infrequent targeted killings of suspected militants or terrorists in the Bush years have become commonplace under the Obama administration. And since a devastating December 30th suicide attack by a Jordanian double agent on a CIA forward operating base in Afghanistan, unmanned aerial drones have been hunting humans in the Af-Pak war zone at a record pace. In Pakistan, an “unprecedented number” of strikes — which have killed armed guerrillas and civilians alike — have led to more fear, anger, and outrage in the tribal areas, as the CIA, with help from the U.S. Air Force, wages the most public “secret” war of modern times.
    If USA thinks- drones will make America safe-they need a huge re-think on the strategy.This is resulting a huge wave of anger across the country.

  • Jeff Prager  On December 21, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Raheel, stop fooling yourself. The Taliban are a US product. We designed the Taliban. We created and printed perverted Islamic text books at the University of Nebraska, Idaho and shipped them to Afghanistan and the CIA and Mossad funded madrassas where the texts were used to instigate violent Jihad to fight the Soviets.

    These text books, used by CHILDREN, were filled with images of bombs, rockets, guns and bullets to teach MATH. They’re still in use today.

    As Pogo said, “we have met the enemy and he is us” and anyone that believes these “sects” are anything more then the CIA and Mossad destabilizing the region isn’t reading enough data. The truth is out there. You have to find it.

  • Jeff Prager  On December 21, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    Raheel, the US announced that “less then 100 Al Qaeda” exist in Afghanistan and guess what, Al Qaeda is us too. You’re reading propaganda. Osama bin Dead for 10 years is a mirage, an illusion. 911 was made in America.

    Yasmeen,
    This was predicted long time ago and expected.

  • Faisal Malik  On December 21, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    ground forces are already working here. in the form of xe mercs or other hired hands on the Afghan side of the border.

    but the uniformed marines? that’d be taking a risk they don’t want. or they want to, but know that they can’t. what they fail to realize is that Pakistani people, as well its military is so different than all the rest they have encountered so far.

    backlash?? all the reluctant withdrawal from Afghanistan?? imo, if they decide to go ahead with this, they’ll be sitting in some bar (or in a morgue) in US before long. in the blink of an eye.

  • Faisal Malik  On December 21, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    what i am trying to say is, all their suppositions, and planning with the 9/11, and the world post 9/11 has not gone according to the plans.

    if it had, they wouldn’t be talking about this retreat from their battleground. the worst year this has been for NATO and the US forces there.

    they need to think straight, and discard this obsession of controlling the entire world and playing in the zionists hands.

  • Faisal Malik  On December 21, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    and last but not least, Stop playing God.

  • Jeff Prager  On December 21, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Faisal, that’s probably wishful thinking. These people are bent on WW3. Then we’ll be fighting WW4 with sticks.

  • Portugheis Alberto  On December 21, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    The article is excellent and most accurate, historically speaking and of course the book recommended at the very end, by William Blum, I have already mentioned and recommended to this list.

    However, to me, there is one crucial detail missing in all this, in order for everybody to understand why history has been and it what it was/is.

    I particularly refer to the complicity of so many political and business leaders of the countries mentioned, with the ruling people in USA. In other words, many politicians “sell” their country or allow her to be invaded, occupied, destroyed, exploited, etc. Many such individuals, (some may call them “traitors”) are never found out and, if found out, they leave their country, settling in luxury in foreign lands.

  • siddiquimy  On December 22, 2010 at 4:10 am

    Prager is certainly right and it all should not be a surprise; POWER corrupts and it has been going on since times immemorial….every nation and every peoples have indulged in it; look at any era..from Biblical times to present day….We just happen to be at the wrong times for us; that is all
    Alberto has also got it dead right; so enjoy while it lasts!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jimmy Jamshed  On December 22, 2010 at 6:00 am

    Thank you for sharing. Indeed, this is a matter of great concern. However, the terrible tragedy is that the Elite/Ruling elite of Pakistan including the Armed Forces BRASS do not give a shit if entire rest of Pakistan/people of Pakistan are bombed into oblivion by USA, as long as tey & their families & their assets are not effected.

    Such is their selfishness & slavery to USA & no care or concern for the people or country. a phenomenon unique only to Pakistan. Probably the most dis-honourable people on earth, no scruples or conscience at all.

    And if I may add, indeed one will be invaded if the invaders are literally given the green light to kill their own people & invade by the Rulers. One will not be invaded if one shows some balls, courage & hold steadfast like IRAN/North Korea. But Pakistanis do not have such spine, the most unashamed &blatant ass-kissers in the World………………

  • Amir Rana  On December 22, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I do agree with Jeff but the background facts of this story are incomplete. He only focuses on Banks and dirty game of politics. It is one part. There are several other dimensions to it. Concept of globalization, so called democracies and associated survival of capitalism (which ensures a few can actually rule the world). Then there are concepts of humans and non-humans. The ruling elite of this world still believes that they are the super-race and all others are actually developed from inferior species. These things are not new but the wrapping in which these are presented today is different. The aforesaid global elite still links itself with mighty historical civilizations and openly claims to protect it. Common man is illusionized by making him think if he were also a part of those great civilizations. Factually he was, is and shall remain a non-human element created to SERVE the blessed elite (especially Jews).

    We Pakistanis are also proud to be a part of this so called Global Village and openly boast of standing shoulder to shoulder with these exploiting freaks called US and NATO. Our media is playing a major role in it by portraying only one side of the picture and that too in a forged manner. Practically, our army is playing as robots controlled from somewhere else. They are happy since they don’t have to FIGHT with Indian or US forces but to kill “innocent” and realistically speaking “armless” people. They enjoy status, power, extreme authority, drug money, weapon deals, property busiiness and foreign aid without doing for what they were actually commissioned. They are allowed, whenever they want, to attack Pakistan, ruin its constitution and win the war against its civilians. Our civilian set-ups, for whatever period they get installed, are there only to provide a rest period to army but ensure the continuity of same policies which were (and are) dictated by our true MASTERS.

    In present scenario, our army elite has saved not Pakistan but itself from going to war against US. As civilians we are very much at war with US and NATO. They are invading us directly and indirectly. They kill us through drones and bomb our territory to show their ruthlessness against non-humans. They can capture whoever they want. They can roam around our streets, fully loaded, in shape of Blackwater and other so many agencies and no one can dare to ask them anything. They make our national strategies and now they are getting involved with our domestic affairs at micro level too. Our whole parliament can be hanged publically at the single movement of eye by a US official even at a very low rank.

    We are still proud Pakistanis claiming to be a free nation and celebrating our independence day with vigor and steam. What a fantastic nation (nation ???) we are!!!

    Dear madam

    This must be a joke. as i mentioned earlier in another mail.

    How do you define attack, intervention,invasion etc

    US drones have been violating Pakistani airspace for years, killing many innocent Pakistanis, NATO shells have killed Pakistani Officers and soldiers, US heli regular violate our airspace. wikileaks have confirmed how our civil and military leaders beg and ask for favors from US ambassador and officials.

    Lets not remain in a state of denial and ask the leaders and the defenders of this country as what are they doing on this non stop violation and mockery of our so called sovereignty and independence

    Regards

    Farooq

    We are living in interesting times. A super power and western alliance with all of their resources are unable to bring peace in AfPak region. They are fighting with perhaps the most backward people in the World.

    After reading Obama’s War written by Bob Woodward, I was amazed to see PhD generals discussing only three options:

    Destroy Alqaida, Weaken Talibans and push Pakistan to do more. The rest of the book is about the surge in military. The option to look for Peace in the region by peaceful means was never discussed.

    and we depend on USA economically and for the support the Pakistan we PAKISTANI has a faith in China the country who surpressed the muslim coummuinty in China by Force none of the Muhllahs stood for this crime it is pitty that we see USA as a Enemy USA dies not take over any of the countires in the world they have enough Land what USA wants a Real Democracy in the world

  • Munir Varraich  On December 23, 2010 at 11:00 am

    Dear Yasmeen Sahiba,

    Thanks for this forward.

    We must remember one thing. Nothing will happen to Pakistan, in spite of AAZ and Gilani and RM. My faith in Pakistan did shake for some moments during these last few months when I absented myself from your blog. But after wikileaks, it was restored. I have my own reasons.

    I had earlier, some time ago mentioned that the era of exposure has begun. That usually takes place historically when the end game begins. In Pakistan’s case it began with the coming of a “democratic” government of AAZ and his PPP. As for the sole super power, the ups and downs of which are also linked to Pakistan in a way, the exposure began with the coming in power of Obama.

    This era of exposure on the world stage and the regional stage will soon come to end. 2014 onwards, the people of Pakistan (Indus Valley) would start their march towards a dream. That dream would be realised by the year 2050, when according to Friedman’s thesis American power would rule the world, about which I disagree. I do not contribute to his ideas of “Battle Stars” and all the science fiction which he wants us to believe. Not for once he considers the possibility of American power being faded away. And that is the mistake of an arrogant world power. A repeat of history, I should say. But do we ever learn from history. NO.

    And yet we talk and discuss about the Empires – the Romans, the Persians of the past. Of Western Christiandon and the Muslim World of today. Of believers and non believers. And yet at the close of the last century and the first decade of the 21st century, we are talking about a “civilization in the making”. Which civilization are we talking about? Why the sole super power is so scared? why this ciilization will rise from amidst the ruins of Moenjodoro and Harrapa? What is there in that region that sends shivers to all the would be powers?

    Is China scared or guilty? I hope not. Their 5000 years history is quite in tune to the history of Indus Valley. And yet Indus must be on guard, jealously to safeguard its history from being molested in the name of “friendship”. In politics, one day you are “Bhai Bahi” the next day you can fight wars and shed blood for your national god.

    Indus man is an emotional man. China man is a composed man. Yankee is a stupid man. Knowing ones own nature could be an asset in these trying times when the Indus Man is required by history to make choices, which could shape the history of this region – the Solomon Range, the gateway to the Indus Valley.

    The time has come. That was written 1400 years ago when God narrated the tales of His creation to His Chosen Man. We are are witness to all the happenings here in Pakistan. So lucky are those who can see and hear the “Music of Silence” of the gods, as Destiny takes the ruins of Indus Valley to new heights – to lead Mankind into a new age, a new dimension.

    I shall end here, this narration- a tale told by an idiot, who has “no connection” to the soil of Indus and yet his heart bursts when the very name of Indus is mentioned to him, in this freezing Scandinavia.

    Warm regards to all of my Pakpotpourian family,

    Munir A.Varraich

  • Jeff Prager  On December 23, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    I think the “Era Of Exposure” is a fallacy. Whatever happens, it won’t be televised and we won’t necessarily know until after it happens. Even the data on drone attacks is sparse. If it weren’t for the internet we’d know nothing at all. Even with the internet we know very little. This is the “Era of Wait and See.”

  • Jeff Prager  On December 23, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    I think incidents such as this one below are going to cause US and NATO troops to invade. Who’s to say this isn’t the CIA or Mossad purposely attacking NATO to create the background for invasion?

    ISLAMABAD: Suspected militants in a Pakistani tribal region Monday fired rockets at tankers carrying oil for NATO troops in the neighboring Afghanistan, witnesses and official sources said.

    Two tankers were destroyed in the attack in Jamrud area of Khyber tribal region in northwest Pakistan, which borders Afghanistan.

    Residents said that the security forces fired at the suspected position of the attackers but there was no report of any casualty.

    The Pakistan-Afghanista n highway was temporarily blocked and NATO supplies suspended following the attack.

  • Jeff Prager  On December 23, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    US military leaders aim to receive approval for their plan to send American special forces across the Pakistani border. An anonymous senior American officer stated,

    “We’ve never been as close as we are now to getting the go-ahead to go across.”

  • Abdulqayum Akbani  On December 24, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Regretful. Basic problem for USA is our Neuclear and they are since long after the same. Allah will certainly helps provided ALLAH HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES.
    Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is selective governments and not elected government.The people should know this. But, as things are, there are other millions of problem, and most of the people are not educated in Pakistan. The literacy rates… are very low plus the day to day living has become very difficult for the common man over here. They have no other tension other than to look after their families and feed them at least three times a day which is also very problematic now. How to solve? Who will hold hand to hand. Upper people are busy making money. Very grave.

  • S Turkman  On December 26, 2010 at 7:17 am

    Are you happy now that NATO has announced, there is no plan to invade Pakistan?

    • Portugheis Alberto  On December 26, 2010 at 7:17 am

      When has NATO told the truth??????? before the Kosovo war they were meeting in Rambouillet and telling the Press after wach meeting how much effort they were doing to avois attacking. The same before invading Irak, that they were traying to get Saddam to go “without” any use of force.

      I remember when the then Head of NATO, Solana, visited Skopje in Macedonia. I said to a Macedonian friend “in a few weeks you’ll have a civil war, between Muslims and Christians. He said “Impossible”, Solana has just been to my country, to advise on how to avoid an armed conflict”. I told him “you, innocent men, you believe what a politician tells the Press?”, adding: “what Solana came to discusss is how Macedonia could benefit in her relationship with the EU, if it helps NATO get rid of weapon left-overs from the war with Serbia in Serbia and Kosovo. Solana and your President discussed how much Macenonia was prepared to spend and about how long they could afford having a Civil War for”.

      My friend said “Alberto, you are crazy !!!!”. Well less than 3 weeks later the Civil War erupted.

      If Nato doesn’t invade Pakistan, it only means they have another – easier, more accomodating, or richer, “client-victim”
