Letter to Editor: The interlude between puppetshows is the only reality!

Ron Suskind's commentary appearing in the Pakistani press today, February 20, 2009, is nonsense. It retains the lies within lies that the Americans are fighting a real war on terror, when all of their counter-insurgency operations – never mind their full scale military invasions based on outright lies and fabricated mantras – are designed primarily to 'tickle' those very boogieman into existence to be able to continue fighting the lifetime of World War IV.

Former President, General Pervez Musharraf, as all his active duty command, military, political, and bureaucratic, past and present, have only implemented the American greater masterplan. They may not be smart enough to fully appreciate or comprehend that plan, and that much may be conceded to them, as no one would be suicidal enough to implement the baby-steps if they knew where it was going to lead. Mercenaries are never suicidal. As Henry Kissinger clearly understood: “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” It is easier to make patsies out of them for the overarching agenda, while using them as mercenaries for the immediate agenda. That is how compartmentalization of hierarchical agendas work.

The mantra of 'Taliban' taking over is a fabrication within a fabrication which is being brought to fruition as we speak. The Swat deal is a perfect example to illustrate this. This deal announced two days ago is a mirage. The reason it is a mirage is because the entire insurgency in Swat is itself a mirage. It is a cultivated 'tickled' insurgency by the counter-insurgency joint operations by the US-PAK militaries. That aptly descriptive word, 'tickled', is the CIA Director Michael Hayden's, not mine.

One has to understand how local sensitivities, cracks and lacunae in cultures, their pre-dispositions, are harvested for one's agendas. The best example is the concept of 'jihad' that was hijacked and bastardized to fight the 9-year long Afghan war 1979-1988. In Pakistan's tribal belt, people are largely conservative, somewhat religious minded, and do have ancient tribal histories guiding their present lives. That is their right to exist whichever way they like, in no less measure, than the right of nudist colonies to exist in the West. For a long time, the people of Malakand have wanted their version of Sharia, whatever its merit, as their low key demand often put forth by their leaders - some genuinely, some politically motivated, and some outright mercenary. Well - that has been 'tickled' into full fledged existence through creating, aiding and abetting, a handful of murderous prominent patsy-mercenaries within them, and subsequently bombing the innocent people's families into the shattered state of destitution and desperation whereby, the patsy-mercenaries can now sympathetically demand whatever they have been primed to demand. In this case, the implementation of Sharia. This is a convenient boogieman, of antiquated 'Talibans' taking over, with the imminent threat of their also taking over all of Pakistan, and posing the real danger of Pakistan's nuclear weapons – which have, in any event, already been neutralized with PAL locks and fifth columnist within the system – falling into their antediluvian hands.


Just like the toppling of Sadaam Hussein's statue in Iraq was a psy-op affair, so are the banners in Swat bazaars proclaiming “no women allowed” a psy-ops being instrumented through patsy-mercenaries. Pakistani peoples, as smart as we claim we are, in our victim state, cognitively perceive only the layered 'katputli tamashas' enacted before us. Most aren't devious enough to understand the complexities to which a hegemon can go to takeover the world. Please see, as an example, the response to “Fourth Generation Warfare

All Western and local fabrications that retain the core-lie, that there is a real “war on terror”, are puppetshows. In a puppetshow, yes there are heroes and villains, foils, intrigues, and sub plots, like in a soap opera. These are designed as immersive experiences such that the audience get so involved in watching and discussing the plots that they begin to perceive them as reality. In the calculus of the matrix, it is a manufactured reality. The real unvarnished reality can be gleaned, in a nutshell, in the following response to the Financial Times oped which had accurately put it all together.

That puts into full perspective, this mindless rehearsal of Ron Suskind's psyop in the local Pakistani press, as in The News' “Another US writer endorses charges against Musharraf”.

A moronic press unable to see past the puppetshows, or the co-opted one, will be the death of any peoples.
