Manageable Costs, Expendable Lives: Senior Pakistani General Takes Al Jazeera Host To School About The Reality of The Global War on Terror
General Durrani thinks he's a mafioso.
The Pakistani general in the interview below comes across as an evil scumbag, but at least he's honest. And he deserves respect for his honesty. His counterparts in the military-intelligence professions around the world, especially in the U.S., Saudi Arabia, England, and Israel, are nowhere near as honest about the consequences of their pro-terrorism policies.
Pakistan has shredded Afghanistan up by arming terrorists and warlords over the decades, and the consequence of its brazen policy has been the emergence of terrorism in its own neck of the woods. But can it live with that, because, for the most part, it is the civilians who are being killed, not generals and intelligence agents who are behind the policy.
Washington has also shredded up Afghanistan and other nations with the tool of terrorism, but on a much larger scale. America is shredding up the whole Middle East, and it can live with the consequences, because if there is going to be revenge attacks from Jihadists like ISIS they won't be targeted at well-guarded military buildings but at soft targets like marathons and movie theatres. If there are attacks on military buildings, it will be by their own hand. And the U.S. military will love it if ISIS or some other Jihadist group manages to pull off a successful attack because it means the people will run to them for protection.
The ISI is being demonized, as it should be, but it is nothing compared to the CIA, MI6, and Mossad. It models itself on these evil agencies. Pakistani generals and intelligence officials were trained in America and the West, so they know the dark arts of warfare and false flag tricks in and out. And so do government officials everywhere else. It is interesting that when the Islamic revolution happened in Iran in 1979, the head of the country's former secret intelligence agency that was trained by the CIA was kept under the new regime to head the new intelligence agency. He changed loyalties, but not his function.
The fact of the matter is that as long as secretive state intelligence organizations like the ISI, MI6, CIA, Mossad, and others are around and kicking in the shadows, there will be hell on earth. That's what these state terrorist agencies do. They stir shit up, spy on the populace to engender fear and paranoia, start wars, stage false flags to manipulate public opinion, and steal the wealth of the nation. They don't care about the consequences of their evil and crazy policies. In their eyes, big events like 9/11 and Peshawar are manageable tragedies and false flag episodes that can be successfully explained away with lies. It's the cost of doing business around the world.
So is General Durrani an evil scumbag? Yes. But he's not unique. His models in the CIA, MI6, and Mossad have done way more damage to the world, funded way more terrorists, and staged way more politically important terrorist attacks around the world.

General Asad Durrani, the former head of the ISI, Pakistan's notorious spy agency, on its role in the "War on Terror".
Saudi Arabia is said to have taken the "strategic decision" to acquire "off-the-shelf" nuclear weapons from ally Pakistan, senior US officials told the Sunday Times.It has to be said from the outset that all statements from U.S. and British officials on any issue in the Middle East, especially when nuclear or chemical weapons are involved, have to be viewed as highly suspect, for obvious historic and common sense reasons. These guys have no credibility. They lied about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, and then lied that they lied about it in the first place.
"For the Saudis the moment has come," a former US defence official told the Sunday Times last week.
"There has been a long-standing agreement in place with the Pakistanis and the House of Saud has now made the strategic decision to move forward."
"We know this stuff is available to them off the shelf," the intelligence official said, adding that it "has to be the assumption" that the Saudis have decided to become a nuclear power.
A senior British military officer also told the paper that Western military leaders "all assume the Saudis have made the decision to go nuclear."
"The fear is that other Middle Eastern powers — Turkey and Egypt — may feel compelled to do the same and we will see a new, even more dangerous, arms race."
But, it is within the realm of possibility that the shitheads who rule Pakistan have decided in a backroom deal to give some of their sizable amount of ill-gotten nuclear weapons to Riyadh. If true, Pakistan would be going down with the sinking Saudi ship in the region.
Pakistan's government made a smart and thoughtful move by not rushing to join the criminal Saudi-US attack on Yemen. But it is still wedded to the dying Saudi royals for financial reasons.
Officially, they say they give military support to Saudi Arabia to protect the holy cities and mosques, but they are not under threat from anyone. The truth is that they depend on Saudi money to keep their government and economy afloat.
It must be remembered that Pakistan was born a mercenary nation. It sold its military services to Washington during the Cold War in exchange for aid. And its leadership is so corrupt, and so greedy for money and power, that it sees no moral or political problems with trading nukes for billions.

An excerpt from, "Obama: No Mideast NATO, but US committed to Security of Arab Gulf States" by Juan Cole, May 15, 2015:
The countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council came to meet President Barack Obama at Camp David in search of a renewed, formalized US commitment to their security. They came away disappointed. Though they did get firm oral commitments, there is no prospect of formal treaty obligations binding the US to defend them.America was founded fighting the tyranny of a faraway king. Will it perish defending one? The political elites of 21st century USA are not exactly founding father material. But they're not totally stupid, either. A good bet is that they leave the Saudi monarch and the other idiots in the GCC out to dry. It'll be fun to watch. The snubbing, infighting, and backbiting has already begun. The senile Saudi king insulted the Obama administration by not attending the U.S-GCC clown summit at Camp David. Many more of these kinds of insults from both sides are on the way.
The GCC was formed in 1981 to strengthen relations among six states: Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. They are all monarchies, all are ruled by Sunnis or Wahhabis, all are on the Persian Gulf (which they call the Arab Gulf), all have substantial expatriate guest worker populations, and all have fossil fuel riches (though Bahrain is the poor cousin here). With the exception of Saudi Arabia they all have small Arabic-speaking citizen populations and therefore cannot hope to field armies to defend themselves. They were shaken by the Arab youth revolutions of 2011 and the rise of populist Muslim movements, and have come to fear uprisings from below. The combination of being small, weak, elitist and fabulously wealthy makes them understandably nervous about external threats, as well. Iraq’s attempt to erase Kuwait in 1990-91 sent chills down all their spines. More recently, Shiite Iran’s alliance with Iraq and with Houthi-dominated Yemen have made them feel surrounded and besieged.

"No ticky no laundry," a line from the film, 'The Departed.' For the Bin Laden raid, it should be said, "no body, no story."
"If, as Hersh reports, lies comprise 99% of Washington’s tale of the raid in Abbottabad, why believe that 1% of the story is true and that bin Laden was killed. It is difficult to have murder without a body. The only evidence that bin Laden was killed is the government’s claim." - Paul Craig Roberts, "Seymour Hersh Succumbs To Disinformation," May 11, 2015.The Bin Laden raid is first and foremost a murder investigation. They claimed they killed a man. Okay. Let's see the body. The fact that the Obama administration has not produced a body in over four years is proof that its official story is a fairy tale. What's even more insulting is that they said that they dumped the body in the sea because it is an Islamic custom, taking the world for suckers and treating us all like retards.
They want us to live in a world of fantasies and fairy tales invented by them for their own political convenience and credibility. This is the tyranny of the tooth fairy. But the U.S. government's tooth fairy does not leave money under your pillow. It leaves piles and piles of debt. And when the American public finally wakes up to discover that they were sleeping on piles and piles of debt all this time they will want to suffocate themselves back to sleep using the same pillow of fairy tales.
The only way out is to elect someone honest in 2016 who is not a democrat or republican, someone who will reduce the massive debt with drastic action, someone who will smash the pillow of fairy tales. Debt, not scapegoat Bin Laden, not radical Islam, not manufactured ISIS, is the real threat to America's long-term security.
And the threat will grow because the Obama administration decided to raid a ghost's shack and raise the debt, thereby hurting America's and the world's economic recovery.

In Syria, manufactured terrorist groups like ISIS are doing the killing and media propaganda channels like Al-Jazeera are doing the story-telling. But they are not the ones who should be held responsible in the court of world opinion for the senseless bloodshed. If there is a genocide of Alawites, Druze, and Christians in Syria in the aftermath of a regime collapse, those who will deserve the most blame will be Saudi Arabia, the United States, England, France, Qatar, Turkey, Jordan, Kuwait, UAE, NATO, and Israel. They have looked away from the Armenian genocide, so the genocide of another people like the Alawites means nothing to them.
The host of Al-Jazeera's Arabic channel incited the genocide of the Alawites of Syria live on air in the video below. This is nothing new. We've known for years that upon a regime collapse in Syria there will be a mass slaughter of Alawites, Christians, Druze and other minorities by the foreign-backed cannibals and Islamist terrorists. But the clip below is so shocking because the person making the threats and calling for genocide is not a bearded ISIS idiot, but a clean-shaven television host in a suit and tie.
The host is so sure that he is in the right. He says that millions of viewers have called for the extermination of Alawites via online polls. Whether that's true or not is another story. It probably isn't, but even if it is, it just means that they've been successfully brainwashed by Al Jazeera with its sectarian propaganda.
Channels like Al-Jazeera have put a lot of time, energy, and money into making ordinary Sunnis in the Muslim world hate Christians, Jews, Shiites, and then act surprised when they join ISIS. The biggest victims of their pro-terrorism and pro-genocide policies will be themselves. Qatar and Saudi Arabia think they are safe from the terrorism they have created in Syria, Libya, and elsewhere, but big daddy U.S. won't be there to protect them forever.
And there is no question that if the Assad regime falls many small sects and minorities in Syria like the Druze, Christians, and Alawites will be targeted indiscriminately, regardless of their military status or their position in the regime, by the Saudi-US-Israeli-Qatari-British-French-Turkish-Jordanian backed thugs and terrorists who see themselves as the purist of Muslims. Anyone who doubts that at this point has not been paying any attention to Syria.
The hosts of Al-Jazeera English in the West have a little more logic, intelligence, and humanity than their counterparts in Arabia, but not by much. They too have stoked the fires of sectarianism and sold propaganda about the wars in Syria, Libya, Yemen, and other countries in their Washington and London studios. So they will not be able to avoid blame if there is a genocide of Alawites and other minorities in the aftermath of a regime collapse in Damascus.
Will this subject be brought up at the U.S.-GCC clown summit at Camp David? Hell no.

Comments From The YouTube Comment Section:
"This channel has been supporter of terrorism since 2000. It should be criminalized."
"All the progressive idiots in Europe and America that love Al Jazeera need to watch this."
"This is some sick shit, they are sitting in Qatar in an airconditioned room with All the luxury in the world, threatening to slaughter millions of alawites and Shia, they don't look like Isis or alqaeda, they are worse, This is pure sunni islam, i either rule or kill"
"The only people that should be exterminated in Syria are ISIS and al Qaeda and their western supported allies. Such talk warrants intervention by the Syrian government's allies. As an American I do not want to see religious minorities like the Alawites, Druze, and Christians genocided by our enemies in Syria. I do not support the actions of my government in Syria. The host of this show should be brought up on charges of incitement of genocide and put in the dock at the Hague."
