America's War With Muslim Nations
Written by www.daily.pk

"The sooner the extremists are isolated and
unwelcome in Muslim communities, the sooner we will all be safer".
U.S. President Barack Obama, Cairo, June 04, 2009.
According to U.S. leaders and their Zionist
handlers, the term "extremist" is any nation or
movement resisting U.S.-Israel domination and
murderous ideology is defamed and deemed
extremist. Whether in Afghanistan, in Iraq or in
Pakistan, the extremists are part of the U.S.
strategy to justify war of aggression.
Let's be very clear. The Muslim world is not at
war with the West, it is the West that is at war
with Muslim nations. Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq
attacked the U.S. and its allies. And despite the
widespread of the virus of Islamophobia,
particularly in Europe and America, Muslims are
avoiding violence. Today, it is easier to invade
Muslim nations, murder their women and children,
and destroy them beyond belief. George W. Bush
and Tony Blair (the main culprits) were
re-elected while their armies were committing
horrendous war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq.
When will Westerners start protesting against the
daily massacre of Muslim children by U.S.-NATO forces?
In 2001, Afghanistan was invaded and occupied
because the U.S. accused the former Afghani
government (known in the West as the "Taliban")
of harbouring "al-Qaeda" extremists even when
al-Qaeda never took responsibility for the 9/11
attack on the U.S. When the Afghani government
offered to apprehend those extremists on behalf
of the U.S. if the Bush regime provided the
evidence against them, the U.S. refused the offer
and embarked on a murderous and illegal war of aggression.
It should be acknowledge that, "al-Qaeda" was a
U.S. proxy used against the Soviet troops in
Afghanistan Indeed, in the 1990s the U.S.
supported Osama bin Laden, while at the same time
placed him on its so-called "most wanted list of
terrorists". Today, al-Qaeda is a card played
when it serves Western imperialist interests.
The entire country is decimated and thousands of
innocent Afghan civilians, mostly women and
children have been killed since the 2001
invasion. Recently, the United Nations reveals
that in 2007 there were over 1,500 civilian
deaths in Afghanistan. In 2008, the number has
increase 40 per cent. Although Western media
often credit the U.S.-installed Ahmed Karzai
"Afghan Army" of conducting military operations,
the majority of civilians were killed by
U.S./NATO indiscriminate bombings. The motive is
the geostrategic importance of Afghanistan
relative to the energy-producing region in Central Asia.
According to Ken Fireman of Bloomberg.com,
Secretary of Defence Robert Gates told the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee on January 27, 2009:
"U.S. goals in Afghanistan must be 'modest,
realistic,' and 'above all, there must be an
Afghan face on this war,' Gates said: `The Afghan
people must believe this is their war and we are
there to help them. If they think we are there
for our own purposes, then we will go the way of
every other foreign army that has been in
Afghanistan.'" Just replace Afghanistan with Iraq
or Pakistan and you get a clearer picture of the
real motives behind the U.S. pursuit of war and
violence against Muslim nations.
Furthermore, the war on Afghanistan is a test for
a new NATO strategy as a global military
intervention force and the future of NATO wars
depend on this strategy being successful.
Dominated by the U.S, NATO is an imperialist
expeditionary force always on the look for a
fight. Perpetual violence is its most essential
tool to impose its worldwide imperialist
ideology. Hence, the U.S. war on Afghanistan has
been labelled in the media as the "good war". The
war on Iraq is described as a "bad war" or a
"strategic blunder", not war crime.
Iraq was invaded and occupied because the U.S.
regime accused the Iraqi government of the late
president Saddam Hussein of possessing `Weapons
of Mass Destructions' (WMD) and having links with
extremists. Of course, the pretexts were a pack
of lies. The real motives behind U.S. violent
aggression were: 1) to conquer Iraq's oil
resources; and 2) to enhance Israel's Zionfascist
expansion and dispossession of the Palestinian people.
In order to expand the war further, Pakistan is
accused of harbouring "extremists". The CIA
alleges without a shred of evidence that Osama
bin Laden, who according to reliable sources died
in 2002, is "hiding" in Pakistan. Western Zionist
media, led by the anti-Muslims propaganda organs
like the BBC, CNN and their variants, have
obviously abandoned the truth and instead
continue the warmongering agenda, inventing news
and adopting the role of cheerleader. Pakistan is
crucified and depicted as the "front of
terrorism". Of course, there is no hard evidence
and the aim is to manipulate public opinion and
prepare the world for another war. The truth is
that the Pakistani people are against U.S. murderous war on Afghanistan.
Opportunists and apologists for U.S. war crimes
are on the move again spreading pro-U.S.
propaganda, without taking into consideration the
consequences of their actions. In his latest
fatigue in the Independent, Patrick Cockburn
writes: "Pakistan is the root of the problem".
And "Pakistan was always the real base for
al-Qaeda". Of course, Cockburn has no evidence to
support his usual recycled rubbish. To support
his rubbish against Pakistan, Cockburn writes
that the anti-Occupation Iraqi Resistance had
many friends in Iran and Syria and so the Afghan
Resistance has in Pakistan. Only a deranged cynic
can make such a statement. The murderous U.S.
Occupation of Iraq made only possible with Iran's cooperation with the U.S.
Meanwhile, Ahmed Rashid, a native Pakistani
informer who is well-known for his pro-Western
propaganda, wrote recently: "Pakistan is about to
collapse and only unconditional aid from the U.S.
can stop this". Rashid provided no evidence and
his so-called analysis is just Western propaganda
sponsored by the U.S. Zionist media. Rashid
regurgitated Israel's Zionist propaganda word by
word. "[A] nuclear-armed military and an
intelligence service that have sponsored Islamic
extremism as an intrinsic part of their foreign
policy for nearly four decades have found it
extremely difficult to give up their
self-destructive and double-dealing policies".
His is consistent with the anti-Pakistan
propaganda spread out by pro-Israel right-wing
Americans. "Pakistan has 173 million people and
100 nuclear weapons, an army which is bigger than
the American army, and the headquarters of
al-Qaeda sitting in two-thirds of the country
which the Government does not control", said
David Kilcullen, a right-wing former Australian
army officer who made a career advising the Bush
administration during the murderous surge in Iraq
and now a consultant to the Obama Administration.
The myth of Pakistan nuclear defence will fall in
the hands of few U.S. proxies is a distortion of
reality planted by Israeli propagandists and U.S.
Zionists. The Pakistani armed forces are not
loosing Pakistan to few U.S. proxies.
Like in Afghanistan and Iraq, the U.S. is sowing
the seeds of violence in Pakistan by pitting one
Pakistani community against the other. The arming
and financing of militias like Tahrik-e- Taliban
Pakistan (TTP) and Jundullah or "Soldier of God"
by the U.S. is designed to destabilise Pakistan
and the eventual break up of the nation in a
Yugoslavia-like destruction. The recent surge in
attacks targeting mosques and religious
congregations is a case in point. "It seems to me
a calculated conspiracy to trigger sectarian
violence in the country in line with Iraq so that
the public attention could be diverted from real
issues," said Abdul Khalique Ali, a Karachi-based senior political analyst.
It is important to remember that, the TTP has
nothing to do with the anti-occupation Resistance
movement in Afghanistan, known in the West as the
"Taliban". The TTP is a Pakistani religious
fundamentalist militia based in the Swat Valley.
It is armed by the U.S. and India through
Afghanistan. The TTP despises the Resistance in
Afghanistan. Jundullah is another
anti-Iran/anti-Pakistan terrorist militia
financed by the U.S. and Israel. It is used not
only in Pakistan but it is also responsible for
cross-border terrorist attacks in Iran which have
killed a number of innocent Iranians citizens.
The problem in Pakistan is that the army has
become a U.S. proxy army waging a war against its
own people. It is used by the U.S. as a condom
whenever the U.S. engaged in war. The Pakistan
ruling clique is a Western-oriented band of
corrupt landlords and businessmen serving U.S.
imperialist interests at the expense of the
majority of the Pakistani population. The
Government's reliance on U.S. funding allows the
U.S. to hold the nation hostage to U.S.
conditions, including the freezing of Pakistan's
nuclear and missiles program. The people of
Pakistan consider the Pakistani Government
corrupt and subordinate to U.S. demands. Hence,
the Pakistani people support any group fighting
the U.S.-NATO occupation that is the greatest threat to the in the region.
Under U.S. pressure the Pakistani army is
attacking communities and towns in the
north-western provinces and Waziristan. The
province is home to the anti-occupation Pashtun
tribes and fields more than thirty
anti-occupation resistance groups. There is no
marked border and the people share one common
goal; the liberation of their land from foreign invaders.
Before the Pakistani army attacks, the province
was under constant cross-border attacks by
U.S.-NATO forces using CIA-operated drones,
helicopter gunships and F-16s bombers in
violation of Pakistani sovereignty. The attacks
are now extended to include Baluchistan.
Thousands of innocent Afghan and Pakistani
civilians, mostly women and children, have been
killed in indiscriminate bombardments.
In addition, the attacks have caused a
humanitarian crisis of two to three million
internal refugees. The situations looks more like
the 1971 Britain-India sponsored partition of
Pakistan and the creation of Bangladesh in
Eastern Pakistan that precipitated mass
migrations and massacres among Muslims. The
refugees are left on its own, relaying on private
charities and local NGOs to survive. The
so-called "U.S. aid" to Pakistan to "rebuild" its
shattered economy is an empty rhetoric. In fact
the U.S. aid is fuelling the war and destroying
the nation. The U.S. is not in the business of
"rebuilding". History shows that every time the
U.S. and its allies invaded and occupied a
defenceless nation, they installed a colonial
dictatorship and leave the country in ruins,
drowning in poverty, suffering, diseases and deaths.
Before he left to Saudi Arabia, President Obama
told the New York Times (NYT 03 June 2009) that
the pro-U.S. Arab leaders are not publicly
expressing their concern about Iran developing
nuclear weapons. "There are a lot of Arab
countries more concerned about Iran developing a
nuclear weapon than the [real] threat from
Israel, but won't admit it", Obama told the
Times. It is a U.S.-orchestrated propaganda war
against Iran designed to deflect attention away
from the serious threat to world peace posed by
Israel's unchecked nuclear arsenal. We all know
that Iran with a legitimate right to nuclear
technology, including uranium enrichment
doesn't posses any nuclear arm or nearer to developing one.
It is worth remembering that the same misleading
falsehood propagated prior to the U.S. illegal
invasion and murderous Occupation of Iraq. It was
Dick Cheney, the U.S. most known (unindicted) war
criminal, who went to see pro-U.S. Arab leaders.
At the time, no one bought into U.S.-Israel
propaganda. Most countries neighbouring Iraq have
acknowledged that Iraq was not a threat. Indeed,
Iraq posed no threat to any nation. The U.S. and
its few allies are guilty of illegal war of
aggression, war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Iraq.
For decades, Iran has been demonised in the West
and subjected to ongoing anti-Muslims racist
propaganda campaign (Iranophobia) on behalf of
Israel's Zionfascist regime. The U.S. and Britain
continue meddling in Iran internal affairs,
including fomenting unrest and inciting violence
in order to sabotage Iran's stability. At time of
writing, Iran is being persecuted and condemned.
Western media packed by some Western
governments are questioning the legitimacy of
Iran's recent free and fair elections in order to
discredit Iran's legitimate government and
destabilise the nation (See Esam Al-Amin,
Counterpunch, 22 June 2009). Democracy is not the
reason behind Western meddling. Western ruling
elites despise democracy. When did the British
people have their chance to elect Gordon Brown?
In 1953, the U.S. and Britain undermined and
overthrew the democratically-elected Iranian
government of Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh
and replaced it with one of the most vicious
dictators. (See Ghali Hassan, Global Research, 26
June 2005). Now, imagine anyone questioning the
legitimacy of the U.S.-staged fraudulent and
violent elections in Iraq and Afghanistan?
In his interview with the Times, Obama revealed
that: "We have a joke around the White House.
We're just going to keep on telling the truth
until it stops working and nowhere is
truth-telling more important than the Middle
East". In American parlance, the term "truth"
means fabricated lie. What the President really
meant is telling the lie, not "the truth", until
people start believing it. That is what George W. Bush said, after all.
Meanwhile, Obama's speech in Cairo (04 June 2009)
loaded with deceit, obfuscation, contradiction,
hypocrisy, double-standards and empty of
substance was designed to manipulate public
opinion, isolate the Islamic Republic of Iran and
absolve Israel's occupation of Palestinian land.
Instead of ranting from a country ruled by the
U.S.-financed longest-serving tyrant in the
Middle East, Obama should have travelled to Gaza
(the largest Concentration Camp ever existed) to
witness firsthand the countless Israeli war
crimes, including mass graves of Palestinian
children. Sadly, Obama failed to acknowledge and
condemned Israel's violence and Israel's role in
Palestinians suffering and dispossession from
their land. Obama remains silent on the recent
massacre of Palestinian children and the
U.S.-Israel sponsored murderous military siege of the Gaza.
And who told Obama that Iraqis are better off
under U.S. murderous Occupation than under a
sovereign indigenous government? Since 2003,
nearly 1.5 million innocent Iraqi civilians
mostly women and children have been killed and
more than 5 million Iraqis are refugees and
displaced Iraqis. In addition to the destruction
of Iraq's health services and the education
system, the U.S. brought into Iraq a culture of
corruption and violence unheard of in Iraq's
history. Before 2003 U.S. invasion Iraq was an
envy of the region. Today's Iraq is an example of
a society that has been deliberately terrorised
and reduced to state of abject destitution, its
progressive Constitution was replaced by a
U.S.-drafted sectarian and backwards constitution.
So far, Obama has proved to be the creation of
the U.S. wealthy ruling class. The President is
"a global celebrity modelled easily into a brand"
to all people, writes author Chris Hedges. But,
what the new brand stands for remains a mystery
to most ordinary people inside and outside the
U.S. Obama seems comfortable following in the footsteps of his predecessors.
It is unfortunate that many of the so-called
"progressive" and "leftist" commentators and
pundits are deliberately ignoring the power of
the U.S. ruling class and instead focusing on
Obama, the President. The President is used to
deflect public attention away from those who
exert real power in the U.S. It is not difficult
to see that Obama is surrounded by a band of
anti-Muslims/anti-Arabs Judeo-Christian white
ruling class. It is a collection of wealthy
Zionists who exert total control on U.S. foreign
policy, U.S. finance, the mainstream-corporate
media and the U.S. education system. The U.S.
Congress is their territory and devoted entirely
to the defence of Israel and its Zionfascist
policies in Palestine. Indeed, the Obama
Administration is the most Zionist administration in America's history.
It is naïve to suggest that Obama has "inherited
difficult challenges". These are U.S. policies
and Obama is in no position to change them. In
fact, Obama is continuing and extending Bush's
policies. Just after he took office, Obama said
that: "It will be a seamless transition". In
other words, "change" without change. As usual,
the U.S. Senate has just approved $106 billion
dollar war funding bill to fund the U.S. war on
Afghanistan, Iraq and now Pakistan.
With the U.S. war on Islamic nations has no end
in sight, democratically elected nations are
defamed and labelled "extremist", while brutal
dictatorship and religious fundamentalist regimes
are welcomed with open arms and labelled
"moderate". Both terms have nothing to do with the character of the groups.
In his Cairo's speech President Barack Obama told
the Muslim world: "You are either with us or
against us". Picking and choosing America's war
on Muslim nations is not the right way to improve
relations with the Muslim world. Peace is. G Hass
