With reference to the Observer article by Imran Khan reprinted on the Realityspeak website Veterans Today, January 09, 2011, concerning the assassination of the Governor of Punjab, Pakistan, Salman Taseer earlier this week by his own body guard Mumtaz Qadri who drilled 27 bullet holes into the ill-fated governor's body, the article opining “The continuing US presence in Afghanistan fuels extremism in neighbouring Pakistan,” I hope people can see what is going on here.
The public is being given two choices to choose from: “either you are with us or with the terrorists.”
Murder is a crime. Period.
Whether the pirate commits it, or the emperor orders it: so, both suicide bombings and trigger-pulling, as well as sanctioned assassinations, bombing nations under blaring trumpets, drone attacks on civilian populations, F-16s dropping munitions on civilian homes and infrastructures, are all crimes.
So, whether the murder is committed in the name of god, or in the name of “imperial mobilization”, it is still murder.
This obvious commonsense makes the issuance of religious Fatwas (proclamations) on high-profile murders, like this one by someone loftily named Shaykh-ul-Islam Mufti Muhammad Idris Usmani, not only idiotic for their inability to grasp the crimes of the emperor while focussing on the one committed by the pirate, but also incredibly self-serving. Both, for the narrow political interests of the local elites which it serves, and for the mileage derived ingratiating oneself with the empire by omitting to reference its monumental crimes of invading nations and murdering in millions. We have seen this before, as in this 600-page Terrorism Fatwa issued in 2010 by another self-serving, self-proclaimed scholar of Islam: Dr. Tahir ul-Qadri of Minhaj-ul-Qur’aan.
All this attention on the pirates is of course quite understandable. As Voltaire had noted: “all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”
And St. Augustine too had observed: “When the King asked him what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate defiantly replied: 'the same as you do when you infest the whole world; but because I do it with a little ship I am called a robber, and because you do it with a great fleet, you are an emperor.'”
So what happens when the pirate also works for the emperor, either as a patsy or mercenary, to manufacture synthetic terror – through a chain of command of black-ops handlers?
See my article Insurgency Vs. counter-insurgency on Veterans Today website to understand why synthetic terror is a necessary ingredient to fabricate insurgency, in order to effectuate “imperial mobilization” as counter-insurgency.
Just also note here that the murdered do not become virgins overnight, or acquire the certificate of everlasting “virtue” such as “shaheed” (pious martyr), by causing their histories of corruption to be re-written, just because they have been murdered by an Islamofascist. Unless of course they happen to be the prostitutes of empire. The same is true if the victim is made by the emperor, in which case, obviously, the certificate of everlasting “vileness” is issued – as is regularly issued to the victims from Pakistan to Palestine, Afghanistan to Iraq.
Yet, my friends, we see precisely that hegelian dialectic being presented in the worldwide media: ST was a virtuous secular humanist, killed by a dastardly Islamofascist; and also the complement: ST was a blasphemist justifiably killed by a religious patriot.
Whichever side you choose, doesn't matter, because, like the Technique of Infamy, while the lies are different at every level, the axiom is common: there is a real islamofascism (or natural Islamic radicalism). And so is the modus operandi of creating revolutionary times in Pakistan. Because, as David Ben Gurion had explained the modus operandi for the Zionist “imperial mobilization” to Palestine: “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times.”
All transformations can only be achieved under “revolutionary times”. This is the first principle of Machiavellian politics, and also documented in many works of empire itself. For instance, here is one just off the top of my head as I just quoted it to someone else (from chapter 1 of my book Prisoners of the Cave): “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor” (quoting PNAC's Rebuilding America's Defenses, 2000).
Imran Khan's article does not betray any sense that he even understands why America is in Afghanistan, why such terror events are being orchestrated, and by his statement: “There were no Pakistanis involved in 9/11 and al-Qaida was then based in Afghanistan.”, clearly shows that he is only a glorified stooge playing controlled opposition. His opinion, “The continuing US presence in Afghanistan fuels extremism in neighbouring Pakistan,” presents the facile view that extremism is only the autonomous consequence to America's presence in Afghanistan, a blowback, with no cultivation and harvesting from America's own black-ops to acquire pretexts for sustaining its own counter-insurgency! Perhaps he has never heard of “tickling” extremism into existence (see CIA's modus operandi of “tickling civilians” cached here).
Examine this for yourself critically – don't take my word for it. The gallant friend of the venerable editor in-chief of Veterans Today, Gordon Duff, our Pakistani glamor-boy politician Imran Khan is legitimizing that there is some reality to al-Qaida, and that 9/11 was an invasion from abroad and the work of these vile Islamofascist militants – which are also the core-axioms of empire! The empire has ruined the world, and the United States, primarily on that axiom. And poet-scholar-politician and savior of humanity, Imran Khan, echoes the very same axioms and presuppositions in his narratives. While he accurately captures the effect of all this extremism on Pakistan, he mis-identifies the cause. Much like the doctor who accurately describes the patient's symptoms, and mis-diagnoses the cause of those symptoms. Imran Khan pretends that America is embroiled in these misadventures because of shortsighted foreign polices – just like America's all time favorite rebel congressman Hon. Ron Paul does.
In fact, there is not a whole lot of difference in what Imran Khan says and what congressman Ron Paul says in this context. Here is Ron Paul disambiguated: My beef with the stellar congressman Hon. Ron Paul.
As a Pakistani, I humbly dare to presume that I understand my fellow country man Imran Khan, his omissions and his commissions, the events transpiring in my own home country, the psychology of my peoples, our local politics, the narrow self-aggrandizing self-interests of our glorified local elites, ....
There is a vaster geo-political agenda for “imperial mobilization” to Pakistan, to “save Pakistan” from becoming “terror central” afoot here. Just witness it yourself in the empire's own response issued today, January 12, 2010, to the wave of rising extremism: Biden reasures Pakistan in speech as bomb kills 18 (Nahal Toosi, AP, cached here).
The handlers of this murderer of Salman Taseer, who appointed him on this guard duty, etc. will never be discovered, any more than who killed Benazir Bhutto, or JFK, MLK, RFK, X, would be discovered, except for official narratives and its final verdict of lone-gunmen gone crazy. That old script is unfolding here on cue!
And is there any mention of such comprehensions in this lame article by Imran Khan, whom Gordon Duff says would be President of America: “NOTE: I have spent time with Khan and consider him a friend. Few if any in the world today speak with his clarity. Were he in America, he would certainly be president, no question about it. G. Duff”?
These clever omissions are clarity? I suspect that compatriot Gordon Duff is entirely correct, for only such peoples with such remarkable clarity can ever rise to power, duly vetted, groomed, and anointed by the CFR, RIIA, the Bilderbergers where attendance appears to be mandatory in order to even run for the Presidency of the United States... And he has that former American President Bill Clinton's charm and charisma to make an excellent candidate... would be easy to keep him under check...
Please see my old essay “Saving Pakistan from Synthetic 'Terror Central'” to understand the Realityspeak of why it is necessary to view all local terrorist events in Pakistan from the wide angle of geopolitics, in order to appreciate their baby-step import to the ultimate destiny of Pakistan: its Balkanization and Decapitation with the help of its own fifth columnists!
Whatever you see in the newsmedia and hear from the mouths of the political and academic savants, is a Mighty Wurlitzer's spin just as was orchestrated for Benazir Bhutto's assassination. Salman Taseer's murder, from what is already visible, can only be a calculated assassination, like Benazir Bhutto's, amidst the common red herring of Islamofascism to continue with the Strategy of Tension in Pakistan. Study Operation Gladio of yesteryear to comprehend how it is being replayed today, by simply substituting “threat of communism to Western Europe” with “threat of Islamofascism to the entire world”. Is this so damn profound?
No brand name politician of Pakistan, no military overlord, no academic pundit, no Human Rights champion, no daughter of the East, both dead and living (yes new ones are being groomed), and no pious mullah of any flavor, will dare to say publicly what a plebe has straightforwardly deconstructed – but at least nine times out of ten, they'd be discussing it in the privacy of their own drawing rooms!! We are mentally colonized, yes, but we also know we are colonized. Our House Negroes among the ruling elites, and the wannabes, are not like the ones Martin Luther King depicted, but far more actively complicit, knowing exactly “what has happened to him”:
“The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man's contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man's representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.” (MLK Jr.)
