Friday night US forces engaged two Pakistani outposts on the Pakistan Afghanistan border, resulting in airstrikes on the Pakistani positions, killing 25 and wounding another 25. Of course the Americans are saying the Pakistanis shot first while the Pakistanis are saying it was the other way around. I think it is hard for the Americans to claim complete innocence on this one as the Pakistanis involved in the conflict were in their own country, warding off invaders from across the ocean.
It seems that as sure as the attention and focus of those trying to stop more wars in the Middle East turn to one situation, like a proposed air strike on Iran by Israel, the war mongers take to killing Pakistanis in the middle of the night. I think the industrial war complex is determined to complete the conquest of the Middle East for the Israelis to the point that they no longer care where World War III breaks out, just so long as the deed is accomplished before the American people can put Ron Paul into office and shut them down.
The Iranians are beginning to grow impatient with the black op murders of their scientists by the US CIA and Israeli Mossad and the constant treats of air attacks on their sovereign country. The Iranians are now saying that they will attack US missile bases in Turkey as a first response to any air attacks on their country. And the Russians are becoming more absolute in their warnings against any further NATO invasions in the Middle East.
The ignorant among us are becoming fewer day by day as it is becoming harder to convince our oppressed population that the idea of conquering the resources of the Middle East and handing them over to the Israelis is truly in the US’s best interest. And this growing trend toward the reality of the situation is showing in the mainstream as the Israelis are no longer right up in our faces, demanding that we go to war for them, though they are still standing in the shadows and preaching their rhetoric out of both sides of their mouths.
I think the Israeli led neo-cons are coming to the realization that if they do not act and act soon, the opportunity for a third world war is going to pass them by, and indeed they may very well end up in front of an international war crimes tribunal, answering charges for the genocide they have committed in the Middle East.
I am very highly concerned that we may wake up one morning very soon and find out an “incident” occurred during the middle of the night and we are now in a world war. Of course the propagandists will put forth the argument from both sides saying they did not fire the first shot, but this will matter little to the millions who will die as a consequence of the action.
God keep us vigilant that we may not be caught by surprise.
