Afghani Truths?

leave a comment »

There are a lot of Afghanis around London. Small shop owners, Street stall holders, and Taxi drivers. I sense a devout loyalty to their nation.

.
Perhaps a paraphrased quote from Layla Anwar (see side bar) is appropo: “When my country is under occupation of course I am nationalistic”.

.
So here are some paraphrased things that different Afghanis have said to me:

.
“Afghanistan is the 51st US state, everywhere in the country the US dollar is used.”

.
“There is no country that wants the US to succeed, not Russia, China, Iran or Pakistan.”

.
“The country is so poor the people often have no food, so how is it possible that so many weapons are available all the time and everywhere?”

.
“On the first day of the US assault 8,500 Taliban fighters were killed, how can you expect the Taliban to forgive?”

The Russians have long said with confidence that the war cannot be won, many others already say it is lost, and all the talk of including the Taliban in the Government reeks of defeat.

.
And there is the strange hyped up offensive against urban Marjah which turns out to be farms spread out over a large area.

Jewish Hubris

leave a comment »

Although the arrogance unavoidably seeps out, Jewish power prefer to be quiet in the background. Even if our criminal wars are so supported / orchestrated by Jewish power, they prefer we look at the frontmen; Bush and Obama etc.

.

Yet there is a givaway, when Jewish power meets a resistance it can only rationalize it by saying: “They must be Jewish”. After all the Jews are the chosen, after all the world has adopted Jewish values, speculators have taken on the role of “Lords”.

.

Today’s authoritative ‘Observer’ speculates if the Pashtuns are of Jewish descent. From that we know that the secretive powerful Jews cannot believe that Western troops are being killed and injured like flies whenever they venture into Pashtunland (AfPak).

.

.

The poor truth is not all Jews are Jewish, let alone the veracity of the myth that true Jews of today descend from Israel.

If you can’t beat them, they must be Jewish, that is the ethnocentric race obsessed point of view. It is a view with some humour, except for the daily war crimes, and except for the obviousness that it is a philosophy which is doomed to backfire.

AfPak the straw that broke imperialism

The sacrifice for Afghanistan

Afgha Poppy fields

Afghan Poppy fields

.

We all see the Taliban getting stronger. Who is helping them? Some revenue from the poppy fields, yes. But most likely the ISI; Pakistan’s intelligence service.

.

Over 90% of the Pakistani population is firmly against US foreign policy. They see frequent US drone attacks against Pakistan, mostly killing innocents, as is now the norm for our imperialist forces.

.

And there are increasing reports on how the US is trying to balkanise Pakistan. Why wouldn’t a loyal Pakistani intelligence service see strengthening the Taliban in Afghanistan as the only way to thwart the US agenda of destabilising Pakistan?

US Plans Will Lead To A Pakistani Civil War

THE NATION

Tuesday, 29 September 2009.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—The US design to destabilize Pakistan is becoming clearer by the day, even for the most blinkered Pakistani.

.

As the US continues to be stalemated in Afghanistan, it has sought to move the centre of gravity of the “war on terror” to Pakistan.  Initially it was assumed that this shift would be restricted to FATA, but now it is evident that the US is seeking to engulf the whole of Pakistan in an asymmetric conflict, which will eventually pit the people against the state, especially the military.

.

TargetIsb

.


We hear the hype, “militants could gain control of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons“. Well creating an alliance between Pakistan’s all powerful ISI and the militants could create a self fulfilling prophecy.

.

It is all a war designed by Zionists and also in Israel, to contain Iran, get the natural resources, stop them marrying their cousins and manifest Gay liberation. The Israeli Think Tanks are trained on subduing a once flaccid Palestinian population. The same brains that brought the Georgia, Lebanon and Gaza wars, none of which were successful.

Debka reveals Israels anti Taliban agenda

leave a comment »

Noted for its assocition with Israeli Intelligence

Noted for its association with Israeli Intelligence

Debka is universally acclaimed to have close associations with Israeli intelligence. Debka only publishes articles of concern to Israel. It also publishes in Hebrew. It is an Israeli publication on the Net.

So why is it making constant updates about the military situation in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan? Clearly Israel has vested interests here. Which in our Global world, and in our current period of a free internet might not be a shock.

What happened to an Israel, a small sliver of land for the Jews, and in particular for persecuted Jews? Can anyone maintain the pretense? All the goal posts have moved. Israel is now concerned with enforcing Jewish values on Muslims in particular and also the world at large.

And so Israelis graduating from the military can go on and find opportunities overseas.

Strangest of all ironies is the likelihood of a war in Israel, and that could easily be within a year. Afterwards Israelis might wonder what their interest was in places ten thousand miles away?

Without going into Israel’s antagonism to the Soviets for not releasing the Jews, and Israels consequent support for Taliban fighters against the Soviets, what has millions of people living in the same area for thousands of years where they have evolved their own culture got to do with Israel? Apparently everything. And it is a religious edict against their Islamic way of life. Don’t be fooled by our ‘allies’ in Egypt and the Gulf, their turn will come, and they are already heavily corrupted.

We have to conclude Zionism killed itself. The laundering of ideas, money and the craving for hegemony over foreign cultures.

Back to Debka’s interests:

Taliban hits E. Afghan government center after US replaces top commander

May 12, 2009, 10:00 PM (GMT+02:00)

Khost after Taliban attack

Khost after Taliban attack

Taliban launched massive suicide bombing attacks Tuesday, May 12, …

wounded three US troops.

The size of the attacking insurgent force is not clear. According to one version, eleven suicide bombers took part. A Taliban spokesman said to the AFP news agency “Thirty of our fighters armed with suicide cars, suicide jackets and guns” mounted the attack.

Military sources say the rebels’ attacks have become more complex and sophisticated. The Khost attack was one of the deadliest in recent months.

It does not even make sense, “one of the deadliest attacks and three US soldiers were wounded”. uhh?

So we can assume it was far worse than that. Maybe ‘contractors’ (mercenaries) deaths are not reported. [update: PressTV says Afghans working for US bases were the target]

Gates changes commanders in Afghanistan

DEBKAfile Special Report

May 11, 2009, 10:04 PM (GMT+02:00)

New commander Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal

New commander Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal

US defense Secretary Robert Gates has replaced top US commander in Afghanistan …

DEBKAfile‘s military sources report that the unusual step of changing commanders in mid-war indicates that the situation on the Afghan front is a lot more serious than apparent from official accounts. …

Required in Afghanistan, say most experts, are small, swift units armed with massive firing power …Last week, Gates was in Afghanistan and visited the large Camp Leatherneck base under construction in the embattled southern province of Helmand on the Pakistan border. This base is designed to accommodate the 17,000 extra troops Obama has approved for Afghanistan in the summer.

.

Well here is another take on the same story:

asiatimes

Now imagine thousands of mobile US troops – backed by supreme air power and hardcore artillery – pouring into this desert across the immense, 800-kilometer-long, empty southern Afghanistan-Balochistan border. These are Obama’s surge troops who will be in theory destroying opium crops in Helmand province in Afghanistan. They will also try to establish a meaningful presence in the ultra-remote, southwest Afghanistan, Baloch-majority province of Nimruz. It would take nothing for them to hit Pakistani Balochistan in hot pursuit of Taliban bands. And this would certainly be a prelude for a de facto US invasion of Balochistan.  –source–

.

The following article sounds as if there is regret that more killing and battles are not taking place.

Isn’t it from the Bible; ‘those that live by the sword die from it’?

Voice of Israel, the voice of Jews, the light onto the nations:

Pakistan hangs back from major Swat offensive, talks secretly to Taliban

DEBKAfile Special Analysis

May 10, 2009, 10:07 PM (GMT+02:00)

Pakistani troops in embattled Swat Valley

Pakistani troops in embattled Swat Valley

While by no means a phony war, DEBKAfile‘s military sources report that accounts of a major Pakistan military offensive launched to flush Taliban out of their strongholds in the northern Swat Valley are generally inflated. This is not to say that hundreds of thousands of civilians are not fleeing the valley. Some half a million are on the move and will join the same number displaced since August, generating a large-scale humanitarian catastrophe. …

According to our sources, the Pakistani army has so far not fought a single pitched battle with the Taliban. Neither have the insurgents been rooted out of any of the cities and villages under their control.

Islamabad’s one-sided claims of some 200 Taliban killed in three days are not independently confirmed. At most, the Taliban have suffered some 50 dead combatants. …

The Islamabad government and local insurgent chiefs are in secret negotiation for a “victorious” military takeover of the embattled valley.
More…

The next article suggests Israel would like Israeli trained and armed Indians to fight in Afghanistan.

Can’t the Israelis use their brains in another way ????

Israeli elite unit officers in big Indian anti-terror exercise

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

May 6, 2009, 10:26 AM (GMT+02:00)

Indian elite Kharga Corps

Indian elite Kharga Corps

India’s biggest ever counter-terror exercise took place this week on the plains of Punjab near the Pakistan border. DEBKAfile‘s military sources disclose that the three-day maneuver ending May 5 was staged by massed mechanized and parachute units of the elite Kharga Corps trained by Israel military instructors in India and Israel in the arts of operating in areas fought over by Taliban and al Qaeda, possibly even with biological or radiological weapons.

Dubbed “Hindi Shakti” (Indian Power), the drill testing this crack army corps’ proactive operational strategy, used tanks, combat vehicles – some developed in Israel for striking terrorist targets in open land, artillery guns and a large number of parachutists. These crack Indian units received specialist instruction from Israeli elite and commando forces in tactics for pursuing combat operations behind enemy lines.

DEBKAfile notes that the Indian counter-terror exercise ended 24 hours before US president Barack Obama headed summit of the Pakistani and Afghani presidents, Ali Zardari and Hamid Karzai, at the White House on their combined strategies against the two terrorist organizations.

New Delhi’s anti-terror exercise signaled the three leaders that, aside from the Americans, the only force capable of taking on Taliban and al Qaeda is India’s elite army corps.

Pakistans Dangerous double game – Secrecy and denial – The Times

Secrecy and denial as Pakistan lets CIA use airbase to strike militants

timesonline
From
A Veronique De Viguerie drone in Afhganistan

(Veronique De Viguerie)

The Pakistani Government has also repeatedly demanded that the US halt drone attacks

div#related-article-links p a, div#related-article-links p a:visited { color:#06c; }

The CIA is secretly using an airbase in southern Pakistan to launch the Predator drones that observe and attack al-Qaeda and Taleban militants on the Pakistani side of the border with Afghanistan, a Times investigation has found.

The Pakistani and US governments have repeatedly denied that Washington is running military operations, covert or otherwise, on Pakistani territory — a hugely sensitive issue in the predominantly Muslim country.

The Pakistani Government has also repeatedly demanded that the US halt drone attacks on northern tribal areas that it says have caused hundreds of civilian casualties and fuelled anti-American sentiment.

Failing to do so would be political suicide in a country where 97 per cent are Muslim, and many oppose the support for the US campaign. In doing so, however, he risks being embarrassed by revelations like the one about Shamsi, and fuelling anti-American sentiment.  –more–

Dangerous double game that mirrors Pakistan’s identity crisis

The discovery of a secret CIA airbase in southern Pakistan exposes the dangerous double game that Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan’s President, has to play as he tries to manage relations both with the United States and with a fiercely anti-American public.

While he is criticised in Washington for surrendering to the Taleban by allowing Sharia in the Swat Valley, he will be lambasted at home for allowing the Americans to use a Pakistani base to launch drone attacks on his own territory.

His dilemma mirrors the identity crisis Pakistan has suffered ever since it won independence from Britain in 1947 and especially since it backed the US-led War on Terror in 2001: is it to be an Islamist state, or a secular democracy?

There is no easy answer for the widower of Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister who was assassinated in December 2007. […]

Yet he faces a new US Administration that appears determined to strike al-Qaeda and Taleban militants in Pakistan’s tribal areas far harder than had been seen under Mr Musharraf.

As a democratically elected President, Mr Zardari is also under greater pressure to protest publicly about the attacks, especially when there are civilian casualties.

But The Times has discovered that the CIA has been using the Shamsi airfield — originally built by Arab sheikhs for falconry expeditions in the southwestern province of Baluchistan — for at least a year. The strip, which is about 30 miles from the Afghan border, allows US forces to launch a Drone within minutes of receiving actionable intelligence as well as allowing them to attack targets further afield.  –more–
