Letter to Editor DAWN: Are we suicidal?

December 16, 2008.

I am searching for what one might do, efficaciously, to avert the looming attack by India on Pakistan. The following report in PressTV has greatly depressed me this morning even before I could have my cup of tea (usually I try to wait until my first cup of chai before reading the news): 'India gearing up for Pakistan attack' http://tinyurl.com/6x3mma

I am greatly distressed at the jingoistic tone being set by many Pakistanis, on many Pakistani websites – are we collectively suicidal?

A people who can't feed ourselves want to take on a war with India? Fly Pakistani flag on India? By what chutzpah? What insanity? What right?

Many of our brethren appear to be cheering this guy Zaid Hamid – a self-anointed defense-analyst who jingoistically took on the Indian Intelligence operative Bharat Verma in a conversation on a Pakistani television news talk show, the latter also presenting himself as a defense analyst and spewing disinformation – in the typical “bharhki marna” Punjabi style (see 'Kal Tak with Javed Choudhry' which aired on December 12th, 2008 ).

To me, Mr. Verma is a desi replica of Bernard Lewis. His analysis are likely seeded in the same imperial foundations and think-tanks along the Potomac. His position paper in the Indian Defense Review seems right out of a neo-con planning guide “Stable Pakistan not in India’s interest” http://www.indiandefencereview.com/?p=354

To respond to a 'Bernard Lewis' in that way is to fall entirely in his trap. These are maestros of human and social psyche, psyops and disinformation, 'tickling the enemy' to respond the way they want to is their forte, as disclosed in “Press Release WHAT'S TO BE DONE – Massive Bomb Blast in Islamabad Marriott September 20, 2008.” http://tinyurl.com/6l6g59

Not not only have they understood the Muslim psyche penetratingly well, but also the Hindu psyche. They are orchestrating a fight between India and Pakistan so that the long-planned dismemberment agenda for Pakistan can be continued further. The endgame was disclosed in “Wakeup to the grotesque reality of the 'Grand Chessboard'” http://tinyurl.com/3mf3ab

Is this Zaid Hamid a patsy or a mercenary, deliberately fanning the flames of already impending war that requires little assistance from any Pakistani, right according to the script outlined in the 'Bernard Lewis plan' for the dismemberment of Pakistan?

And it is incredibly distressing to me that such display of jingoism is going down rather well on both sides of the border in a positive feedback loop of self-sustaining jingoism. Are we suicidal as a people?

Furthermore, is the dismemberment of Pakistan already fait accompli? Or is there some way to avert it – assuming mercenaries will always remain in charge (just as they always have been)?

Is the ordinary man entirely out of the loop, everywhere? A simple commonsense perspective shows that ought not to be the case (ala La Boetie, see “Happy Happy in Hope and Voluntary Servitude” http://tinyurl.com/59ncew ), and yet, that is indeed very much the case, everywhere.
