might be to involve China in a nuclear war with India.
of the fake death of bin Laden in a commando raid that violated
Pakistan’s sovereignty was sold to President Obama by the military/security
complex as a way to boost Obama’s standing in the polls.
The raid succeeded
in raising Obama’s approval ratings. But its real purpose was to
target Pakistan and to show Pakistan that the US was contemplating
invading Pakistan in order to make Pakistan pay for allegedly hiding
bin Laden next door to Pakistan’s military academy. The neocon,
and increasingly the US military position, is that the Taliban can’t
be conquered unless NATO widens the war theater to Pakistan, where
the Taliban allegedly has sanctuaries protected by the Pakistan
government, which takes American money but doesn’t do Washington’s
the threat message and ran to China. On May 17 Pakistan’s prime
minister, Yousaf Raza Gilani, as he departed for China declared
China to be Pakistan’s "best and most trusted friend."
China has built a port for Pakistan at Gwadar, which is close to
the entrance of the Strait of Hormuz. The port might become a Chinese
naval base on the Arabian Sea.
Raza Rumi reported
in the Pakistan Tribune (June 4) that at a recent lecture
at Pakistan’s National Defense University, Husain Haqqani, Pakistan’s
ambassador to the US, asked the military officers whether the biggest
threat to Pakistan came from within, from India, or from the US.
A majority of the officers said that the US was the biggest threat
with India, the other Asian giant that is rising, is willing to
ally with Pakistan. Moreover, China doesn’t want Americans on its
border, which is where they would be should Pakistan become another
China showed its displeasure with the US threat to Pakistan, and
advised Washington to respect Pakistan’s sovereignty, adding that
any attack on Pakistan would be considered an attack on China

China’s ultimatum was reported in the US press, but it was widely
reported in India’s press. India is concerned that China has stepped
up to Pakistan’s defense.
ultimatum is important, because it is a WWI or WWII level of ultimatum.
With this level of commitment of China to Pakistan, Washington will
now seek a way to maneuver itself out of the confrontation and to
The US has
been fawning all over India, cultivating India in the most shameful
ways, including the sacrifice of Americans’ jobs. Recently, there
have been massive US weapons sales to India, US-India military cooperation
agreements, and joint military exercises.
figures that the Indians, who were gullible for centuries about
the British, will be gullible about the "shining city on the
hill" that is "bringing freedom and democracy to the world"
by smashing, killing, and destroying. Like the British and France’s
Sarkozy, Indian political leaders will find themselves doing Washington’s
will. By the time India and China realize that they have been maneuvered
into mutual destruction by the Americans, it will be too late for
either to back down.
and India eliminated, that only leaves Russia, which is already
ringed by US missile bases and isolated from Europe by NATO, which
now includes former constituent parts of the Soviet Empire. A large
percentage of gullible Russian youth admires the US for its "freedom"
(little do they know) and hates the "authoritarian" Russian
state, which they regard as a continuation of the old Soviet state.
These "internationalized Russians" will side with Washington,
more of less forcing Moscow into surrender.
the rest of the world, with the exception of parts of South America,
is already part of the American Empire, Russia’s surrender will
let the US focus its military might on South America. Chavez will
be overthrown, and if others do not fall into line, more examples
will be made.
The only way
the American Empire can be stopped is for China and Russia to realize
their danger and to form an unbreakable alliance that reassures
India, breaks off Germany from NATO and defends Iran.
the American Empire will prevail over the entire world. The US dollar
will become the only currency, and therefore be spared exchange
rate depreciation from debt monetization.
Gold and silver
will become forbidden possessions, as will guns and a number of
books, including the US Constitution.
