Sunday’s Dawn has a report on the presence of Blackwater in Pakistan > there seems to be an apparent blanket of denial of their presence but tell tale signs continue to emerge that something is definitely afoot
Questions that must be asked of ourselves, (a) Can we trust our present leadership to tell us the whole truth, with honesty? (b) Can we trust America to NOT do such a thing and we believe the denial as per the US Ambassador, a representative of a country whose 233 year history is full of military operations, even if we were to, for a moment ignore this last decade of destruction and carnage?
Seriously, I’m not trumpeting an Anti-US paranoia, but answers to these questions are self explanatory to the rest of the world [non-Americans]. More importantly in this day and age of information war-fare, when a Minister comes on record to vehemently deny a story, following closely in the footsteps of Anne Patterson, when she tried to casually shrug aside this rumor mongering “I think this recent brouhaha over the embassy expansion has been difficult to beat back… just seems to be taken over by conspiracy theories” – Such idiotic statement emerging after reports that out of the proposed $1.8 billion US aid to Pakistan (2008-9), one billion dollars have been earmarked for the proposed extension of the US embassy. trusting this lethal duo, I’m more inclined to believe that there is something more than what meets the eye
On the flip side, America needs a dominant presence underneath China it also positions them to monitor Pakistan and be prepared god-forbid Indo-Pak nuclear tensions go out of control. We all know that Marines in military uniforms roaming the streets of Pakistan are a magnet for attacks [a grim reality in Iraq], but a rouge force ie. Blackwater-Xe, can potentially move far more freely and with greater impunity in the streets of Islamabad and its surrounding areas [also seen to Iraq] helping protect America’s interest from the ‘suicidal ghost’
All these American privileges come more-or-less because our esteemed President and his sidekick [Rehman Malik] are too sold out, literally everything in Pakistan is up for sale, lock, stock and barrel and the most valuable and probably the most frequently traded commodity in their portfolio is Pakistan’s soul and its self respect which I am sure in the hands of these corrupt leaders is up for sale to the highest bidder, be it America, India or even Israel, if the price is right — SOLD
