“Musharraf benefits from the removal of a bitter rival, but now must find a way to re-establish order. Musharraf now has an ideal justification to crack down on “terrorists” and impose full martial law, with Bush-Cheney working from the shadows behind Musharraf—and continuing to manipulate or remove his apparatus, if Musharraf proves too unreliable or broken to suit Anglo-American plans.” Larry Chin, Global Research, December 29, 2007
As usual the uS press and their gB cohorts withhold the most important parts of the story. We get the dots without the patterns, let alone the connections.
As Chin points out in this article, these dramatic events are steps in a carefully planned pathway to global uS Empire. The “War on Terror” is a transparent excuse to deploy uS troops to every country containing natural resources or strategically placed to access natural resources. Pakistan and Afghanistan control access to Caspian Sea oil and gas, as well as the growing domination of Middle East oil.
The CIA, the strongarm thugs of the uS government, via its manufactured Al Qaeda (not the original Al Qa’ida, which was a traditional economic network) seeks, as always, to destabilize governments in this volatile region. Most of the time they work in the background, with occasional flashes of violence betraying their presence. As with their current Vice Terrorist, Dick Cheney, they seek to leave no footprints in their bloody wake.
This is what the united States has become: the inheritor of British colonialism writ large and ugly. Capitalizing on terrorism, global warming and peak oil, that is, just about everything, the uS corporate oligarchy (aka fascist government) seeks to consolidate power throughout the world, such that its corporate sponsors continue to make obscene profits, and the beneficiaries of power and influence remain in power as long as possible.
This is the face of the central state for the foreseeable future, and that face doesn’t get any prettier as it gets older. As the state clamps down on the people, the people will resist. The state has all the guns, and “non-lethal” weapons, and the willingness to use them against the people. Social and political mechanisms are in place in the united States to repress, “with a firm and manly hand,” any movement by the people to regain control of the government.
It doesn’t look good for freedom and liberty today, and the future of democracy.
