In the early morning of Saturday 26 November two NATO Apache helicopters, an AC-130 gunship, and a number of fighter jets perpetrated a sustained and deadly attack on two Pakistani army border posts on the Afghan-Pakistan border. Located high on the Salala mountain ridge, the two army posts were brutally attacked for approximately two hours. In what was evidently a naked act of aggression, the US-led forces bombarded the border posts for forty-five minutes, left for twenty minutes, and subsequently returned – attacking for a further hour. Twenty-four Pakistani soldiers including two officers were murdered in the assault.
The sustained nature of the attack precludes the possibility of it being a mistake, as claimed by the U.S. government. The United States Military would have us believe that, with its world class communications and intelligence infrastructure, it mistakenly mauled an ally repeatedly for two hours, killing dozens. This is an utterly unfeasible theory. Further throwing this theory into question, it has been revealed that Pakistani forces were in constant contact with American forces throughout the attacks – informing them in no uncertain terms that they were attacking a Pakistani military position.(1)
As a direct result of the attack, U.S. forces are now facing an unprecedented crisis in Afghanistan.(2) Pakistan closed off U.S. supply routes to Occupied Afghanistan, leaving thousands of tonnes of NATO military equipment and fuel stranded in Pakistan, unable to reach its destination across the border. Knowing that this eventuality was not only predictable but inevitable, one has to ask why the U.S. chose to perpetrate the deadly attack.
The brazen and bloody assault on the Pakistani army can only be understood in light of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), and the CIA’s ongoing war to destabilise the country. The TTP is a militant-terrorist group fostered by the CIA and India’s RAW, being used as a proxy force against the Pakistani nation as part of a ‘fourth generation war’.(3) The history of the TTP will be revisited in this piece.
Due to offensives mounted by the Pakistani Army and Air Force in the last 8-9 months the TTP had largely been pushed out of its relatively comfortable position in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas’ villages. As a result, the TTP terrorists fled to neighbouring Afghanistan’s mountainous border region; dwelling in caves and camps in far less favourable conditions. A series of Pakistani border posts were subsequently set up in the border region inorder to prevent the TTP terrorists from entering into Afghanistan. Uprooted from their bases in Pakistan and caught up amid Afghanistan’s savage, merciless winter, these precious CIA-RAW assets were being ‘decimated.
Through their strategically-placed border posts, Pakistani forces were holding a line and preventing the TTP from re-entering Pakistan. The calculated and bloody U.S-led attack on these Pakistani border posts was nothing more than a pre-planned attempt to forge a path back into Pakistan for the withering CIA-RAW TTP terrorists.
Just as we have seen in the criminal, genocidal attack on Libya, NATO forces are providing military and logistical support to their ground-based proxy armies – in this case TTP terrorists. This is the essence of the strategy of ‘fourth generation warfare’(3) that is being used on Pakistan, in tandem with media manipulation, and the installation and maintenance of a corrupt puppet government.
Less than a month after the bloody 26 November attack on Pakistan’s border posts, NATO’s deadly support of its proxy terror army began to bear fruit. Several serious incidents tied to the TTP occurred in Pakistan’s border region. Notably the TTP bombed a Pakistani Rangers’ vehicle on December 9,(5) killing three Rangers and wounding four others.
On Friday, December 23, fifteen Pakistani soldiers were abducted from the Mulazi area of the northwestern Tank district. A local Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan commander confirmed that the soldiers were being held by TTP militants.(6)...read more
