On The Road To Armageddon

Robert Singer:

For the last three days the most popular article on OpedNews, a tough progressive website, has been The Road to Armageddon:

“Inside the Beltway” report, “Explosive News,” about the 31 press conferences in cities in the US and abroad on February 19 held by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of professionals which now has 1,000 members.

By the Honorable Paul Craig Roberts, scholar, academic, journalist and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration.

The Road to Armageddon is a wildly popular story about the most popular story on the Washington Times website.

Roberts was surprised that the news report on “How did three World Trade Center skyscrapers suddenly disintegrate into fine dust?” was treated seriously.

Why is Paul Craig Roberts, and The Washington Times, a newspaper that looks with favor upon the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neocon wars of aggression, reporting:

“A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7,”

This is information deliberately announced publicly or leaked by a government or an intelligence agency to sow confusion and undermine credibility.

Let’s get real, what are these stories doing in the mainstream media 8½ years after the September 11 attacks?

Answer: They promote the erroneous controlled demolition theory on the collapse of the World Trade Center.

Former President George W. Bush’s comment, “Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories” aired on national television after the attacks of 9/11.

Google “9/11 conspiracy and you get 134,000,000 results.

Google “9/11 outrageous conspiracy you get 556,000 results.

There is a 9/11-truth movement in every major city in the United States.

9/11 conspiracy theories are allowed and even encouraged.

The 9/11 Truth Movement is the Cover for a Metaphysical Catechism (Test)

I’ll get right to the point, I have read the books and watched the documentaries on September 11 for three years and the 9/11 official story:

Nineteen fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, crash airplanes into steel skyscrapers because they “hate our freedom to consume”. Inexplicably the jet fuel, which is basically kerosene that burns at about 400c, took on the qualities of an explosive demolition agent, vaporizing 70 tons of aircraft into a puff of smoke and causing 110-story buildings to collapse into a pile of rubble.

Is so stupid that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld didn’t really expect you to believe it.

A jet fuel fire brought down two of the tallest buildings in the world: Improbable, to say the least. [1]

Millions believe a LIHOP (Let it Happen on Purpose) version thanks to Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 911, because their brain tells them the U.S. government killed 3,000 American citizens to pass the Patriot Act, build up the military and invade Afghanistan and Iraq. [2]

Everyone else, after you point out the obvious (110 stories of steel and concrete collapsing at free fall speed), thinks about it for a New York Second and realizes the official story is ridiculous and couldn’t be true.

Then, they come to the false conclusion it was a MIHOP (Made it Happen on Purpose): Bush, Cheney, and the Neocons killed 3,000 Americans so they could pass the Patriot Act, build up the military and invade Afghanistan and Iraq, an inside job.

The American, Indian and Israeli threat

When we say , Americans are destined to disarm Pakistan of its crucial nuclear arsenal ,means that Americans policy making has been hijacked and commandeered by Indian and Israeli lobbies.


One can appreciate easily that , Pakistan is being forced to fight the American war in Afghanistan , and the beginning point will be North Waziristan , which US thinks is the stronghold of those Taliban elements who are loyal to afghan Taliban. Amidst, political and economical turmoil inside Pakistan, the political elite of Pakistan is highly prone to plunge into the trail of total catastrophe, which can only be avoided, if the politics of dollars is replaced with politics for national interests. The champions of democracy will not amend their purpose, rather it is Pakistani people who are to decide something.

Dr Haroon Iqbal:

The most devastating part of current impasse in Pakistan is that it has been deprived of a vibrant political will and resolves to reach the solutions of major problems which the country is facing in the wake of war on terror, which is approaching the ditch of war of attrition for a country like Pakistan.

From day one, the American strategy was focused at bringing Pakistan army, face to face, with the Afghan Taliban to attain two objectives, firstly to divert the striking power of the Afghan resistance forces and secondly to indulge Pakistan army into a vicious mess, leading to annihilation of its organizational infrastructure and thus removing the most credible hurdle in the way of the Americans to ultimately denuclearize Pakistan. When we say , Americans are destined to disarm Pakistan of its crucial nuclear arsenal , ,means that Americans policy making has been hijacked and commandeered by Indian and Israeli lobbies. Pakistan’s nuclear capability indeed, is founded on the concept of credible deterrence, necessary to maintain peace and stability in the south Asian region. Both of these lobbies (Zionist and Indian) have burrowed through the organizational structure of the American policy making institutuions.In this regard, the Indian ploy of using American shoulders to sting Pakistan is relatively a new phenomenon, a tactic, they have learned from their Israeli brethren. Right from congress, to senate and finance department to national security, Indian Americans or NRI’s have assumed key positions, and in this capacity, remain very close to the den of American policy making apparatus. So we should not forget that when we talk about American policy in Afghanistan, or Pakistan, the Indian factor, working behind American strategy has attained a growing role. The recent example is Kerry Lugar bill( now law), which was passed by congress, where the majority members are pro Indian, or belong to Israeli lobby. Another important factor is the collaborative venturism of the two lobbies, Indian and Israeli, having two faces but same body, and two bodies with one soul. Both of them have a common agenda and a common strategy, i.e. both of them believes in expansionism, religious extremism under cover of sham secular norms, with hidden fascist cum secular extremism.

The most disgusting of these are their religious fascism, where other faiths and religions are totally unacceptable for them. Under cover of civilian aid, Kerry Lugar bill was focused at declaring Pakistan army a rogue, terrorist army and Pakistan a terrorist state. The idea is simply reflecting the deep seated desire of the Neocon American establishment to weaken Pakistan army, in their bid to denuclearize Pakistan. Now, even a lay man can sort out, who will be the ultimate beneficiary if Pakistan denuclearises?The Indian strategy is very obvious now , and that is two way i.e. using the friendly American hand to meddle in the security matters of Pakistan on one side and the weapon of diplomatic impasse on the other. Pakistan’s ambassador in US Mr. Hussein Haqqani has strong ties with most of the congressmen and it is a matter of concern that how was the secret letter by Mr Haqqani to ISI, leaked to Indian media, if pro Indian congressmen were not involved? Both India and Israel are feeding and breeding on American fodder to be able to exploit, the bloody turmoil inside Pakistan, which itself is a product of their dirty intrusion in this country.

When the Guns Fizzed and the Gizmos Fizzled

All the “Daisy Cutters”, Nuclear tipped bombs, and the finest drones on the planet could not stand up to the raw grit of those that opposed occupation. All the kings horses and the all the kings men could not put humpty back together or subdue the fierce fighters of Afghanistan and Pakistan. There are clear signs of operationalization of the peace plan in Kabul. The surge was imply to assuage the hawks in the Republican Party–the real Afghan reassessment was to get American boys out of the treacherous Hindu Kush. Defeat is a clichéd word–there are no winners in war. Victory is exaggerated concept. Absolute defeats have never been able to quell the resistance. Absolute victories have always lead to future wars–be it Sparta, Versailles or Kabul.

As Shakespeare would say “when the hurly burly’s done, and the battle is lost and won“–there is time to make a fresh start.

When a country is not able to impose its will and might–it is some sort of defeat. The Americans today need a face saving exit strategy from Afghanistan. The Taliban, Pakistan and all other countries of the world should assist the US in a phased, expeditious and honorable withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Over the past several years, we have predicted that the US will exit Afghanistan in 2011 right before the US elections. The tell tale signs of the operationalization of this policy is writ in large all over the billboards called newspapers.

There are numerous indications confirming our well calculated predictions: the polite decline to Delhi on their exuberance to begin training the Afghan forces; the offering of Shadow drones to Pakistan; the peace talks with the Afghan Taliban; the mood and the statements of the big boys in preperation of the Afghan Conference on January 28th, 2010; the acceptance of the Pakistani point of view on halting further operations in FATA; the usage of Pakistani mediators in back channel diplomacy to include the Taliban in the current Kabul government; and the offer of further US military and financial aid to Pakistan. The carrots offered to Pakistan are not for free–Milton Friedman was right “that ain’t no such thing as a free lunch”. Pakistan is being offered new toys and more Dollars for her assistance in helping the American extricate themselves out of the Afghan quagmire.

America had a decision to make. Stick with General McChrystal’s policy of more soldiers, more mercenaries and more war–supplemented with more drone bombing and more targeted murders (drones and otherwise). More war has always created more enemies. This has never been more true than in Afghanistan and Pakistan today.

Washington’s other choice was less war, less soldiers and less enemies. President Obama hedged his bets with the first option, and then is pursuing the 2nd option aggressively.

While some may claim that the Great Game is over–and Pakistan won. However, this is not the time for crowing from the rooftops. This is the time to let loose the doves from the allow them to to fly into the sun. There are many steps between the lips and cup. There are many impediments to peace in the Panshir and tranquility in Waziristan. We believe that the right steps are being taken.

A show of strength followed up with massive financial aid and assistance will yield the right results. Once the troops begin leaving, the civilian surge, accompanied with suitcases full of Dollars will persuade the warlords to switch sides (just like the Northern Alliance switched sides in 2001).

There are huge dangers to he peace deal. Bharat (aka India) keenly aware of its sagging influence in Central Asia (specially after the ignominious eviction from Tajikistan) may play the chagrined loser, and stage another Mumbai type of false flag, and try to wage war on Pakistan. This would derail the peace plan. Some of Bharati surrogates in Balochistan and the TTP may be allowed to torpedo peace in the Khyber Pass by assassinating another Pakistani leader, in trying to create ethnic strife in Pakistan. Other international powers may have vested interests in ensuring that the Taliban do not come into power or even share the government in Kabul. Both Israel and Iran are scared of The Talibs.

If President Obama is able to pull this off–it will be a miracle. He has to keep the Indians at bay by selling them toys (double advantage, dollars and Peace); he has to appease the Pakistanis so that they continue their assistance in achieving peace; he has to browbeat Iranian resistance through sanctions and threats; he has to assuage the Chinese that Afghan venture is over with no threat to Beijing; and he has to keep the Russians cool so that they do not think that Central Asia has been taken from them. If he can do this tap dance, the US corporations can make huge profits.

Delhi needs Viagra to prove its manhood. The US can offer the blue pills in many forms–obsolete nuclear plants declared unsafe for America, stripped down F-16s (with lots of spare parts and services), and tons of below quality equipment that the Indians would love to plunk down hard cash for. After all the business of America is doing business. If the US can figure out how to sell billions of Dollars of machines (which will rust in a few years) to Delhi that would be a great achievement. If the US can make a profit out of the Afghan war to recuperate some of its losses, it will be a happy camper. Read more of this post
