How Bad It Is : Pakistanis flee into Hell, while Hell comes to Africa

Just when you thought you had heard it all before, you come across certain events that baffle the mind, bringing such clarity to make you want to crawl back into your hole of ignorance.

Pakistan:

At the same time that United States has revealed that they are about to ramp-up military operations in Pakistan, BBC is reporting that “thousands of Pakistanis have fled into Afghanistan” due to the security situation deteriorating in Pakistan.

This revelation is frightening on multiple levels: It proves that the NATO occupation of Afghanistan is a complete disaster and that the chaos it has created is spreading; it shows us how desperate the situation is in Pakistan if people are willing to escape into what is considered to be hell on earth; and it indicates that Pakistan is about to become another major war zone the likes of which has not even been seen in Afghanistan.

The implications of what the above BBC news report is revealing can not be over emphasized. Thousands of human beings are being forced to leave a once peaceful homeland for what is considered to be one of the most brutal and violent places on earth, where life expectancy is only 46 years. Based on this report, we can only assume that all hell has broken loose in Pakistan (a nuclear country). Just to make sure that this really sinks in; Pakistani refugees, in their search for a safe haven, are being forced to flee into a country that has been at war for over 30 years. This can only mean that every other escape root is either cut off, or the surrounding regions are much worse off then Afghanistan. This is the frightening reality. This is what Western intervention has created in this region, complete chaos.

Why is all this happening? The only political explanation that I have been able to come up with is that the United States, with the help of some NATO countries, is in the beginning stages of implementing the World War III option, two of the goals for which are to create the New Map of the Middle East and to maintain the status quo of Western economic dominance of global financial markets.

Our Current Situation:

Here is a brief summary of where we are right now? The US Armada in the Persian Gulf has been busy trying to create a Gulf of Tonkin incident which can be used to kick start a war with Iran (fortunately for us, the official [sic] US version of the incident has unraveled, proving yet again that Iran has no desire to start a war); Israel is considering a strike on Iran despite the US NIE report; Lebanon is on the brink of a Civil War; Russia and the US are in full production of a new arms race; reports indicate that after six years of occupation, the war in Afghanistan is just beginning, which is also confirmed by the news that the US is increasing troop levels in Afghanistan; after five years of occupying Iraq, US Military is increasing its frequency of airstrikes within residential areas, which is a sure sign that they are losing the war; Pakistan is approving the use of additional American troops within its borders; Russia is mirroring US and Israeli policy in its right to pre-emptively use Nuclear weapons; top US generals have already admitted that the occupation of Iraq will last at least 10 to 50 years, all the way up to 2057; the enforcement of US sanctions on Iran will blossom into a full confrontation at some point; the Gaza Strip is being turned into a concentration camp; and much much more.

Africa:

As if the above is not enough, unfortunately, the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) encompasses more then just the Middle East. The US African Command (AFRICOM) has been very busy creating death and destruction in Africa in an attempt to obtain control of Africa’s Oil.

If you find the idea that Africa can become bloodier then it is inaccessible, then consider this: Contrary to popular belief, the worst humanitarian crisis in Africa is not Darfur, it’s Somalia, and it all started a year ago, when the United States and Ethiopia started a war with Somalia, ending six months of the only peaceful period Somalis had known for years. The end result has been the same as all other wars that the United States has started this century. Not only is Somalia devastated but the war is spreading.

Kenya is in chaos, Uganda is being affected, and even though “Africa is united in rejecting US requests for a military headquarters” inside Africa, there are reports that “from oil rich northern Angola up to Nigeria, from the Gulf of Guinea to Morocco and Algeria, from the Horn of Africa down to Kenya and Uganda, and over the pipeline routes from Chad to Cameroon in the west, and from Sudan to the Red Sea in the east, US admirals and generals have been landing and taking off, meeting with local officials. They’ve conducted feasibility studies, concluded secret agreements, and spent billions from their secret budgets.” This is the future that awaits Africa with AFRICOM, a neoconservative agenda to control the “oil, and the diamonds, and the uranium, and the coltan.”

The Future:

Taking all of this into account along with the continuing confrontation between US and Russia over Europe and Iran, the saber rattling between the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and NATO, and the devastating economic crisis that is about hit the world, we have much to be concerned about in 2008, and 2009, and 2010, and so on. Especially if the rhetoric of using Nuclear weapons in the next major war continues to be used.

What will the end result of all this be? Simply put, all of this is going to come and bite us in the ass so hard that our grandchildren’s children will rue the day that the West started a war with the approximately one and a half billion Muslims that occupy this planet.

How do we put a stop to this madness? We who live outside of the United States can do very little to affect US foreign policy. All we can do is to make sure that our governments do not support or participate in any other wars that the American Empire begins. We who live inside the United States are the only ones who can prevent what has been planned.

Many political and military analysts believe that it is not a question of “if” but “when” the US attacks Iran, but I do not believe this. Politically and economically a war between Iran and United States is inevitable, however we are not just political beings, we are also social, communal, thinking and moral beings. We have the ability to divert from our current path, and this will require sacrifice.

Neither the western mainstream media nor the electoral process, with its bias and disregard for democracy, will change the Project for the New American Century. It is up to us individually, through our communities, and our peace organizations and labor movements to bring to a stand still the American Military-Industrial Complex (video 59:05).

In a previous article entitled “WW3 Has Already Started or: 18 Ways To Stop The Bomb”, a list was presented to help bring about positive changes to our society. This list is provided below (LINK). The first step in resisting is to educate ourselves and those that follow us. War is no longer an option if humanity is to survive.

18 Ways To Stop The Bomb:

1. Spend time with who and what you love. Surrounding ourselves with love should help us to remember the beauty of life.

2. Learn to filter and recognize propaganda. It is corporations that profit from wars, not individuals. Always apply the filter: ‘Ownership determines content.’ “If we accept that it is desirable for individuals to practice moral agency as fully as possible, then we should seek to create a different kind of media system.”

3. Your body, your voice, your mind, and your spirit are required at peace rallies for us to reach critical mass. Additional information at the following news sources: CODEPINK: Women for Peace, Raging Grannies, ANSWER Coalition, Stop War, United for Peace, Move On, Anti War, Common Dreams, bellaciao, PEJ News, OpEd News, Information Liberation , Project Censored , Information Clearing House , Global Research , Prison Planet , The Raw Story , Gush Shalom, and Truthout

4. Stop watching corporate news on TV, they do not provide information, just propaganda. Frequent legitimate unbiased news sources such as: The Real News Network, Democracy Now!, International News Net, Sub Media TV, Free Speech TV, Link TV, and Alternative Radio: Audio Energy of Democracy.

5. Stop supporting corporate education and entertainment. Learn about your rights, how society functions, what we have done, and are doing to each other and the planet. Watch and learn from movies and documentaries such as: Earthlings, America: Freedom to Fascism, A World Without Cancer, Fallujah: The Hidden Massacre, Chemtrail: Aerosol Crimes, The Oil Factor: Behind the War on Terror, The Future of Food, Liquid Crystal Vision, Marcus Garvey: Look for me in the Whirlwind, The Doomsday Code, Iraq For Sale, Plan Colombia, The Revolution will Not be Televised, Freedom Downtime: The Story of Kevin Mitnick, Zeitgeist, and Loose Change.

6. Learn about the financial institutions that have been established to profit from the ultimate consuming machine known as war. Watch and share: ZEITGEIST, The Movie: Part 3 of 3 (47:05), and the animated Money As Debt (47:07).

7. Stop supporting mass media that has been the voice of government and corporate propaganda and the driving force behind the recruitment, promotion, and continuation of the war agenda. Begin to acquire your news from actual people blogging and reporting on the true nature of life. News blogs such as: What Really Happened, Ya Ya Canada, Dahr Jamail’s MidEast Dispatches, Desert Peace, Daily Kos, plus countless others available on the Internet.

8. Write, call, and personally contact your representatives in government ( US and Canada), demanding that they begin to represent you and your family, not corporate money. Realize that most of our representatives have not even begun to grasp the “terminal” path that we are on.

9. Not only should you be consuming less and locally, but also producing locally. Corporations over the years have destroyed the infrastructure of local economies, but it is time for us to rebuild. Additional information at Post Carbon Institute, People and Planet , BALLE, 100 Mile diet and numerous other sources available on the Internet.

10. Reduce your dependency on oil by using public transportation and or alternative means of transportation. See Critical Mass for additional information.

11. Downsize your car and/or convert to hybrid transportation. The sooner you do this the better. This will not only save you money on fuel, it will also allow you to sell your large gas-guzzler before the rise in fuel prices reduces the value of your car to nothing. And you better hurry, because the waiting lists for hybrid cars are long and used models are selling for more then the new cars.

12. If you are working for an organization which is actively supporting war then try to find a different occupation which does not require of you to promote the destruction of humanity.

13. Begin to invest in yourself instead of Stock markets who launder money while profiting from war. Additional information for Canada at Stop Pension Plan Investments in War!

14. Begin to work with nature and not against it by learning about natural resources available in your area. Additional information at: World Changing, Planet Friendly network, and NI Business Info.

15. Make healthy eating choices. Studies have found that most bankruptcies are due to medical bills, and since the passing of the Bankruptcy Bill you will no longer be cleared of your debts if you declare bankruptcy in the US, which means that you will become a slave to the banking institutions. This will take away your freedom and force you to abide by their agendas, the main agenda of which is war.

16. Support artists against the war and boycott those that support the war. There are many artists who have officially spoken out against the war and are proactive in their attempts to bring us peace. Some of these artists are: Immortal Technique, System Of A Down , Ben Harper, Dead Prez , Dixie Chicks , Serj Tankian , Anti-Flag, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Charlie Sheen , Susan Sarandon, Rose O’Donald, Banksy, Carlos Latuff , Ben Heine, Simon Regis, and even Sean Penn.

17. Participate in civil disobedience. Peace organizers are now advocating “people in the antiwar movement to move from protesting to performing acts of civil disobedience that ‘get in the way of the war machine.’”

18. Understand that we are one people occupying one planet, and that we are and will be held accountable for the actions of our governments. Learn about our history by reading books such as: Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, A People’s History of the United States, Hegemony or Survival, Wilhelm Reich in Hell, Mass Psychology of Fascism [PDF] , Pirates of the Caribbean: Axis of Hope, The Shock Doctrine, Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, and War Is a Racket written by America’s most decorated general US Marine Corp Major General Smedley Butler.

How Bad It Is : Pakistanis flee into Hell, while Hell comes to Africa

Chycho,

I assume English is not your first language, in which case you’re doing pretty well. However, you need to learn the English word "than." "Than" is a comparative word (as in "Democrats are smarter than Republicans"), and it is not the same word as "then."

Cheers!

thanks ... your assumption is correct and the example you used sort of made it click for me ... funny actually I’ve struggled with these two words forever ... maybe it was "Democrats" and "Republicans" that did it ... anyway thanks and it has been corrected in the original on my blog (hope so anyway)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
