According to the New York Times, Pakistan has moved troops away from its western border with Afghanistan while India has issued a warning to travelers to avoid Pakistan. “The redeployment came as Indian authorities warned their citizens not to travel to Pakistan given the heightened tensions between the two nations, news agencies reported, particularly since Indian citizens had been arrested there in connection with a bombing in the Pakistani city of Lahore,” the newspaper reports. The Associated Press quoted two Pakistani intelligence officials as saying that the Pakistani Army’s 14th division was being sent to Kasur and Sialkot, near the Indian border, and that around 20,000 troops were being redeployed.

Pakistan’s troop redeployment comes on the heels of its warning India that it would face a “stern response” if it engaged in surgical strikes in response to the Mumbai attacks, now demonstrated to be a false flag attack. “Pakistan did not want war but is ready to defend its frontiers, Shah Mahmood Qureshi told reporters in his hometown of Multan. If India made the “mistake of carrying out a surgical strike”, Pakistan will deal sternly with such an eventuality. Pakistan has purportedly moved its tenth brigade to Lahore and ordered its third Armed Brigade to march towards Jhelum,” ZeeNews reported on December 25. “A lot of military movement is being noticed in districts just across the international border for the last few days, which is not normal,” said RC Dhyani, DIG of Rajasthan frontier BSF.
Analysts note that in the event of a war between the two nuclear armed nations, the Pakistani military would effectively abandon its part in the contrived U.S.-led GWOT and pull its troops away from the western border with Afghanistan, where they have been battling Pakistan ISI and CIA spawned militants, and deploy them on the eastern border with India.
“Pakistani Taliban militants have already said they would rally to help the Pakistani military in the event of war against India,” Reuters noted on December 24. “Public sympathy and support for militant groups would soar as they would be seen as national defenders against the ‘real enemy’, India.”
A war between Pakistan and India and Pakistan’s abandonment of the GWOT in its tribal regions would provide the U.S. with a near perfect pretext to attack targets inside Pakistan. Last August Barack Obama promised to launch just such attacks “with or without approval from the Pakistani government, a move that would likely cause anxiety in the already troubled region” and exacerbate any conflict between India and Pakistan.
Earlier this year Nisar A. Memon of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q alleged in the upper house said that the U.S. plans to foment civil war and strife in order to break up Pakistan, according to the Pakistan Daily. “He urged the government to take cognizance of a research report by Prof Michel Chossudovsky of Global Research (Canada) which said that the recent regime change would be followed by a ‘deliberate’ political impasse. The report said that the political impasse was part of an evolving US foreign policy agenda which favored disruption and disarray in the structure of the state.” An earlier report by the CIA predicted a “Yugoslavia-like fate for Pakistan in a decade with civil war, bloodshed and inter-provincial rivalries as seen in Balochsitan.”
A conflict between India and Pakistan, however, has the potential to escalate far beyond mere conventional and civil war. “No conventional war between India and Pakistan will remain limited for long and will gradually lead to a full-scale war and ultimately to a nuclear conflict,” a study by a Pakistani defense official warned in 2004, Space Daily reported. If India conducts surgical strikes against Pakistan, explained the official, “Pakistan is not going to sit quiet. It will be an act of war which will not remain limited and it can escalate to a full-scale war and ultimately it can lead to a nuclear conflict if Pakistan’s national interests are threatened.”
Earlier this month J. Sri Raman reported on India’s fanatical Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh party and its call for nuclear war in response to the Mumbai attacks. Kuppahalli Sitaramayya Sudarshan, leader of the RSS, believes “there is no other way left” to deal with terrorism and “that this terrorism may ultimately result in a Third World War. And this will be a nuclear war in which many of us are going to be finished.”
“According to reports out of top Chinese mainstream news outlets, the RAND Corporation recently presented a shocking proposal to the Pentagon in which it lobbied for a war to be started with a major foreign power in an attempt to stimulate the American economy and prevent a recession,” Paul Joseph Watson and Yihan Dai wrote for Prison Planet on October 30. “The reports cite French media news sources as having uncovered the proposal, in which RAND suggested that the $700 billion dollars that has been earmarked to bailout Wall Street and failing banks instead be used to finance a new war which would in turn re-invigorate the flagging stock markets.”
A war between India and Pakistan may provide an ideal pretext for U.S. involvement in the region. “Reportedly, the RAND proposal brazenly urged that a new war could be launched to benefit the economy, but stressed that the target country would have to be a major influential power, and not a smaller country on the scale of Afghanistan or Iraq,” Watson notes. “The reported RAND proposal dovetails with recent comments made by Joe Biden, Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and others, concerning the ‘guarantee’ that Barack Obama will face a major ‘international crisis’ soon after taking office.” As noted above, Obama has made a point of mentioning Pakistan as a target of U.S. intervention.
It now appears a brewing war between India and Pakistan is precisely the sort of conflict imagined by the RAND Corporation to stimulate the deteriorating American economy. It will also provide a pretext to declare martial law in America and put the finishing touches on the New World Order’s high-tech surveillance state and control grid.
