Next Up: Pakistan

by Justin Raimondo

I see someone besides myself has noticed all the "leaking" going on in the upper echelons of Washington over our rocky relationship with Pakistan. Suddenly Islamabad is on the verge of being classified as part of the Axis of Evil, with the head of the joint chiefs, Admiral Mullen, openly accusing the Pakistanis of "sanctioning" the killing of a journalist, and allying with a faction of the Taliban. Since when does a military man the titular uniformed head of the US armed force, no less speak out on such sensitive political matters? Why, when he has the full backing of the White House which obviously has plans for the Pakistanis.

The new accusations add fuel to the fire started by the discovery of Osama bin Laden's Abbottabad lair, where he had been hiding for years. The Pakistan-haters in the administration of which there seem to be plenty were quick to draw the conclusion that he'd been hiding with the knowledge and cooperation of the Pakistani military because of the hideout's proximity to an elite military academy. Which is odd, since it is well known that al-Qaeda operatives were living in the US for years, undetected, as they planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Heck, FBI agents in the field warned Washington after one of the terrorists took flight training lessons and was reported for suspicious activities to no avail. What if someone in Pakistan had reported similarly suspicious activity in Abbottabad to the local authorities, and no action had been taken in the view of the anti-Pakistan crowd, wouldn't that constitute prima facie proof of Islamabad's guilt?

The ultimate prize for US imperialism in the Middle East the jewel in the crown of the emerging American empire is Iran, long the chief target of the War Party's attention. Yet they don't have either the resources or the political support for such an attack, and so the strategy, for the time being, is encirclement. First, Iraq and Afghanistan, buttressing the substantial US military presence in the Gulf and now, Pakistan. (Azerbaijan, to the north, has replaced Kyrgyzstan as the main way station funneling supplies to American troops in the region.)

Shorn of its obstreperous military leaders, who entertain delusions of autonomy, Pakistan will be fully integrated into the American orbit and Iran will be surrounded on all sides.

While keeping the heat on for a direct attack on Iran, the powerful pro-Israel lobby the driving force behind the anti-Iran crowd is biding its time, confident they'll win in the end. In the meantime, they are carefully building up momentum for the final push toward war, and a key part of that is agitating for a complete break in US-Pakistan relations.

The Lobby's fingerprints are all over the latest anti-Pakistani agitprop. It was one Simon Henderson, described as the resident "expert" on Pakistan's nuclear capabilities at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), who recently released an alleged letter from a top official of the North Korean regime "proving" Pakistan supplied Pyongyang with nuclear technology. WINEP was founded by Martin Indyk, former research director of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), as an "academic" adjunct to AIPAC, the primary conduit of pro-Israel propaganda in the US.
