Letter5 To Imran Khan From Zahir Ebrahim - Full Spectrum Alliances
Dateline California, Monday, September 3, 2018 06:00 pm | Updated Sep 4, 2018 04:00 pm
Dear Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Imran Khan:
4.0 Full Spectrum Alliances
Today I expand upon the necessity of the doctrine of Full Spectrum Deterrence to counter the doctrine of Full Spectrum Dominance on the Grand Chessboard. Atomic bombs do not create this deterrence. One cannot eat nuclear weapons to stave off hunger. Pakistan is even unable to use its nuclear arsenal to deter drone attacks on its own territories and the indiscriminate killings of its own innocent peoples from the air. Neither do nuclear weapons protect against fourth and fifth generation warfare which is fought from within to destroy nations from the inside; nor do nuclear weapons protect against economic warfare that is waged both from within with ineffective and corrupt governments brought to the helm who aid in the destruction of their own societies with calculated policies of ineptness, and from outside with economic sanctions.
We see the truth of these observations from the disintegration of the nuclear armed superpower of yesteryear, the USSR, to the democracy revolutions and insurgency vs. counter-insurgency warfare throughout the Middle East, the most recent being the disintegration of Syria, to Iran under economic sanctions weakening the state itself, to Pakistan being victim of its own mercenary elites who eagerly serve the massa.
Modern warfare is not merely armed to the teeth armies facing off each other in the battlefield in clearly identified uniforms so one can identify the enemy. That's third generation warfare in military terminology, now deemed too expensive and inefficient in superpower doctrines of global domination. It is deemed useful in only controlled engagements, and mainly against a defenseless foe where victory is not just assured as per the Art of War, but an endless engagement can be maintained for military and political purposes quite unrelated to the war itself. Afghanistan has been suffering third generation warfare for at least two generations now. Afghanistan is also the only society left on earth where such engagement can be organically sustained for as long as necessary.
It is no secret that today on the Grand Chessboard, modern warfare spans the full gamut of deceit, from the ubiquitous war on terror that lends the necessary pretexts, to the more debilitating economic warfare to force nations to heel, to the entirely beneath the surface destruction of societies and nations from within so that they lose not just their ability to defend themselves, but also their will.
The source of Pakistan's full spectrum dysfunction is fundamentally due to this unrecognized modern warfare imposed on it by the superpower du jour. Just as the Indian sub-continent had initially failed to recognize the war imposed on her by the East India Company, Pakistan too has continually failed to recognize the war imposed on her under the pillow-talk of the United States of America and its congeries of exporting American culture, American Aid, American bailouts, American payments for mercenary services rendered, American NGOs, American think-tanks, the World Bank, IMF, ADB, the UN, WTO, Globalization, Free Trade; all Trojan horse instruments for exercising hegemony by the United States. These instruments are not much different in purpose than the singular East India Company's role in simpler times for sustaining the British Empire over her primitive colonies for hundreds of years.
This is not called modernity. This is called naked primacy, naked aggression, naked enslavement of resource-rich nations no different in purpose than under colonial rule. Today it is only disguised as modernity. It is even sold and packaged to our respectable noble elites thusly:
'Today's Uncle Tom doesn't wear a handkerchief on his head. This modern, twentieth-century Uncle Thomas now often wears a top hat. He's usually well-dressed and well-educated. He's often the personification of culture and refinement. The twentieth-century Uncle Thomas sometimes speaks with a Yale or Harvard accent. Sometimes he is known as Professor, Doctor, Judge, and Reverend, even Right Reverend Doctor. This twentieth-century Uncle Thomas is a professional Negro ... by that I mean his profession is being a Negro for the white man.'
--- Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, 1964, 1999 hardcover edition, Chapter Black Muslims, page 265
'The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man’s contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man’s representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.'
--- Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope, page 307
The utter contempt and disdain in which the modern massa holds its Uncle Tom is not a state secret either:
'A lot has been said and written by some of our American friends about the price of a Pakistani. Dr. Andrew V. Corry, US Counsel General at Lahore, once said, “Price of a Pakistani oscillates between a free trip to the US and a bottle of whisky.” He may not be too far wrong. We did observe some highly placed Pakistanis selling their conscience, prestige, dignity and self-respect for a small price.'
--- Brig. Tirmazi, Profiles of Intelligence, Ch 3, page 45
That's why we are here --- our ineffective governments and our national obsession with systemic corruption are merely the effects. Not the first cause.
To defend against this full spectrum warfare requires far more courage, wherewithal, self-respect, dignity, political and intellectual sophistication than is common to the Uncle Tom geniuses of Pakistan.
First and foremost, it requires recognizing that Pakistan is in fact under active undeclared fourth and fifth gen warfare on the Grand Chessboard. Otherwise she can never fully comprehend what's happening to her due to misdiagnosis.
It also requires recognizing that this war cannot be fought by a slave state suffering the Stockholm syndrome (seeking help from one's own jailor). Otherwise, like the half-doctor forever putting Band-Aids on cancer patients and feeling satisfied with his treatment plan despite the patient dying, even the honest Uncle Tom leader can forever chase effects and die holily in bed with the nation still laboring under the jackboots of the massa.
Do you, Mr. Prime Minister, have the courage of your convictions to face the grotesque reality of the Grand Chessboard outlined in the Introduction above? Are you a visionary leader who can think at multiple levels simultaneously?
I am going to take a giant leap of faith and assume that your Pathan blood is a lot thicker than water, and your mind far sharper than your own heroes who founded Pakistan, first in intellectual thought, and subsequently in political activism. As the late iconoclast intellect of Pakistan, Ardeshir Cowasjee, once wrote to me as I endeavored to explain to him our national myths: Now that we are here, what can we do?
What can we do indeed?
I am going to take a giant leap of faith and assume that you actually wish to do something about our pawn status that forces us to always be out with the begging bowl through Machiavellian debt enslavement, and we end up providing prostitution services to the massa in return. I am going to presume that in your heart of hearts, you wish to stop our macro abuse by the hectoring hegemons, those who install puppets and ineffective governments to service their needs. And I am also going to presume, perhaps gratuitously, that while your sentiments are in the right place, you don't quite know intellectually how to go about it principally because you are surrounded by Uncle Toms and House Niggers. Habitual slaves, Mr. Prime Minister, weaned on the crumbs falling from the massa's table, cannot be counted on to lend advice of seeking liberty from the massa.
I am sorry but I see you only surrounded by House Niggers. If you wish to know what that term means, please visit Malcolm X. I documented our national acumen among our brightest minds in the study of modern mental colonization: FAQ What is an Intellectual Negro?. To my observation, the term House Nigger applies to virtually all notable members of your cabinet, economic advisors, military advisors, political allies, parliament, judiciary, and to our English enabled elitist culture in general. If you are hesitant in accepting that observation and demand facts, please see my 2007 Open Letter to the Chief of Pakistan's military, and my January 25, 2018 Open Letter to the Chief of Pakistan's judiciary. The singular challenge to our nation to think beyond the massa's largesses cuts through all our national institutions, and all our rank and file, not just our elites.
Is it a closely guarded state secret Mr. Prime Minister that most of us are born into mental captivity in Pakistan, are easily co-opted into serving the massa one way or another the moment we step into adulthood, often under the pretext of earning an honest livelihood when we are honest, and serving our own narrow self-interests as mercenaries when we are not so honest? And that we die celebrating the massa and his civilization, proudly bequeathing this legacy of mental servitude to the next generation year after year? Haven't our best minds been reduced to not even being able to recognize that fact anymore? These best minds on your team Mr. Prime Minister, from whom you seek advice on how to run the affairs of the state, are infected with this very cross around their neck.
However, I am certain Mr. Prime Minister, that this abominable plague from the West no longer infects your mind. That you have succeeded in freeing yourself from the shackles of brown sahib mentality which Lord Macaulay diabolically crafted for us in 1835 with the following policy prescription before the British Parliament: “We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes, in opinions, in morals and in intellect.”
This admittedly Pollyannaish belief in you Mr. Prime Minister, is the principal motivation behind these series of bold and candid Open Letters to you. I do not know if you will ever be made aware of them, let alone read them. I do what I can with my lonely pen without power. But you have power, and will soon become powerless in power, unless you perceptively come to understand the diabolical forces that have made Pakistan the basket case nation that it is today. These forces are not about to lay down their arms just because an honest man has become the Prime Minister of their golden goose.
Mr. Prime Minister, survival on the Grand Chessboard is not the gentlemanly game of cricket that you learned from the English massa while they diabolically enslaved us for over two hundred years in the most un gentlemanly game of colonization.
You cannot compete with their legatees du jour with the coterie of nincompoops that you have surrounded yourself with. You cannot win this game with a weak team that has no intellectual capacity to break the shackles of servitude, that spins on a dime, and the best among whom are either idealist dreamers like you thinking this is a game of cricket and we shall prevail, or belong to the same feudal class of mercenaries that is dependent on the massa's favors for their own survival.
But, if you stop thinking of your self-ascribed divine mandate as the game of cricket, and instead pick up on the Art of War, we, we the people, and we the nation, with the same crop of peoples, have a fighting chance.
That's what great leaders are made of, and I can already sense that you aspire to be such a leader who can light the fire in the mind of man; who can inspire us to rise beyond our limitations. It is because of this belief that I have tentatively accepted your explanation that you have to play with the team that you have got.
As the one who forged liberty for the United States of America, Patrick Henry, pleaded with his own selfish and generally comatose elites not much different than ours some 243 years ago:
'There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free--if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight!
I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger?
Will it be the next week, or the next year?
Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a Xe guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength but irresolution and inaction?
Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.
Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. ...
There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Baluchistan to the mountains of the Tribal Belt!
The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace--but there is no peace.
The war is actually begun!
The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms!
Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have?
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God!
I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!'

Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
Please permit me to show you how to break the chains of servitude. Albeit, only as a field nigger, a common man who, like Malcolm X, while having lived most of his adult life in the United States, utilized her vast libraries, read her best minds, observed her worst statecraft, and has come away unimpressed by her divine la mission civilisatrice, her ongoing white man's burden. You might remember Mr. Prime Minister, that your own hero whom you cite often and give credit for your Islamic metanoia, “Sir” Allama Iqbal, does have the imperial title “Sir” attached to his name. Perhaps you have forgotten what it meant to be anointed the Knight of the British Empire and for rendering what kind of services to the Crown! Like the rest of Pakistani intelligentsia and our virtuous pulpits, you too claim to be divinely inspired by “Sir” Allama Iqbal's pious words. And like everyone else, you too have evidently paid scant attention to his actual un pious acts, of both commission and omission, in support of his own massa. I have analyzed these facts and observations in: Allama Iqbal - marde-momin or superman?. I invite you to scrutinize it with the emotional detachment necessary to overcome national myths and sacred mythologies that public heroes often come wrapped in.
National myths are easily busted with even an iota of emotional detachment only if learning the real truth of any matter is important. In my report: The UK Indian Independence Act, 1947, 18th July 1947 - Discovering The “Divine Destiny” of Pakistan, I bust the predominant myth behind the construction of Pakistan. The reality of fait accompli of history however, now pragmatically demands what Cowasjee hath said: Now that we are here, what can we do. That is the important matter today; not holding on to sacred myths on how we came about which easily indoctrinate us into false beliefs. These only lead us astray. You have publicly stated your mission to be to craft Medina-like welfare state in “naya Pakistan” based upon the eternal egalitarian principles our beloved Prophet employed fourteen centuries ago. But you become a victim of your own myth-making when you conveniently forget that the Medina of the Prophet of Islam was forged in the blood of the noble martyrs of Islam, directly fighting the onslaught of the powers of the time for ten long years in order to be able to implement those very principles! It was not a free lunch. Your selective story-telling is disingenuous. To create Medina in Pakistan, you cannot ignore the gods living in the Pakistani mind.
I don't make that mistake Mr. Prime Minister. And I won't judge you by your platitudinous words of “naya Pakistan”. As they say in the massa's language: the proof of the pudding is in its eating. When we take everything else from the massa, let's dare to take some of their own wisdom which affords them, under one pretext or another, the license to exercise Full Spectrum Primacy over us. The massa ubermensch race is united in their Anglo-Saxon burden of exercising global primacy through Full Spectrum Dominance.
So, what shall we, the untermensch races and nations, do in a world that is often referred to as the global village in which superpowers forge economic and military alliances among their own kind for controlling and harvesting the rest of us, by cunningly keeping us disunited even with our own neighbors?
In a nutshell, our antidote from their own book of wisdom should be: Self-defence through Full Spectrum Alliance.
Full spectrum alliances with all nations who share the same predicament as ours, beginning with our beleaguered immediate neighbors with whom we share a history, culture, civilization, and extending to nations with whom we share our geography, and beyond to all nations on earth across continents with whom we share the same predicament of being targets of primacy through what has euphemistically come to be known as international relations. This is nothing but the legalized imposition of predatory policies upon the world which aid and favor the developed nations of the world, particularly the Global North, and specifically, the United States of America. The primacy is not even thinly disguised. But slaves can only see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. The free man is different, much different. So is a free nation. I am excited that for the first time in the history of our nation, supposedly a free man has come to power in Pakistan. A free nation will surely follow.
The seeds of this pragmatic political wisdom of uniting with other victims of the same hectoring hegemons politically, militarily, as trading partners, as economic partners, as currency partners, as resource sharing partners, etceteras, were planted in Part-4. I continue in this Part-5 examining why uniting in Full Spectrum Alliances is the only commonsense path to deter the quest for Full Spectrum Dominance. That path is so obvious as to be self-evident. And it not actually transpiring as the common shared national interest of the victim nations is only a divine mystery until one acquires the courage of one's convictions. The peoples of the United States once did. What are we waiting for?
The following is excerpted from my August 09, 2007 missive: The Missing Link To Full Spectrum Dominance – Full Spectrum Deterrence, and my May 15, 2008 Press Release: The Only Solution to Avoid Total War – Full Spectrum Alliances in ASIA.
The plebeians of course well understand that they are being made a meal, and why, but not the complexities of how the tangled web of competing interests and deception games on the Grand Chessboard, and the systematic local covert-ops and co-optations in their own backyards, are gradually doing it to them such that even the right of self-defense is being stripped from them. Since they are unable to diagnose the mechanics of their being made a meal with any degree of precision, they are also unable to come up with efficacious antidotes in their own self-defense even as they are being deftly carved up and served on the platter of neoliberalism and neoconservatism. Most invariably end up fatalistically lamenting on this and that cleverly planted red herrings and contrived puppet shows in synchronous harmony with their drum-beating ruling elite, while also realizing fully well that all the dazzling and exploding effects eventually only lead to the same 'pre-ordained' destination of servitude.
As an investigative and independent free-lance journalist, I often talk to the ordinary 'taxi driver', i.e., common man, of the Global South, primarily in my native country.
Many of them easily observe what is manifest for all rational plebeian peoples to see even in the Global North (which the latter inexplicably don't seem to notice), that how the nations of the Global North are continually uniting among themselves into larger administrative, collaborative, and security entities, but the Global South is deliberately being made to divide in all sorts of ways even further. That 'divide and conquer' is at play on their shores is visible to all and sundry, and even when they may not be able to articulate it as elegantly as some erudite hectoring hegemons in the West who seek its vainglorious justification, as in "Hegemony is as old as mankind" , they surely recognize it trivially, being on its receiving end.
Even the 'uneducated' but surprisingly astute taxi driver in the developing nations of the Global South insightfully observes that even in their own minimal self-defence, China and Russia are unable to draw into a "full spectrum" alliance when each of these two burgeoning superpowers can clearly perceive that the Global North led by the sole superpower hectoring hegemon is out for "full spectrum dominance" . And the taxi driver knows that both the intended victims on the Grand Chessboard can quite comprehend that the 'great game' is being replayed in Central Asia and the Middle East at the indigenous peoples' expense and that neither is being fooled by the 'global war on terror' mantra. Thus, the plebeian surmises, both must surely also be well aware that their anemic and guarded attempts at SCO collaboration that falls far short of the “full spectrum alliance” necessary to thwart the 'great game' of "full spectrum dominance" being wrecked upon all of "space, sea, land, air, and information"  by the top 'baboon' du jour, is merely a toothless and inefficacious show-dog sentry.
Any ordinary person in the street in the impoverished Global South - the general sympathies among whom for the enormous wealth and power controlled by the Global North historically always being in the negative, and now rapidly approaching its nadir with the rise of the new 'Mandarins' heralding in the elite-favored and elite-enabled 'New World Order' - knows that for instance, the pending American-Israeli invasion plan for the destruction of a defenseless Iran can be trivially thwarted by a full spectrum NATO-EU like security-and-trade alliance immediately emerging within the SCO, with India, Pakistan, and Iran being made full time mutual-defense-pact treaty members to safeguard the Asian Continent homeland from all external marauders. It is rather commonsensical to fathom that further extending such 'Treaties' and 'Unions' among similarly fated nations of South America and even Africa can create a relatively stable "full spectrum deterrence" all across the Global South.
This is the most obvious and immediate self-defense-and-trading-partners pact among the 'lowly', which despite the doctrine of naked preemptive aggression of nuclear first-strike preeminence claimed by the 'baboons' du jour, and which is also jingoistically projected to target Russia and China , no external economic sanctions and saber-rattling by the "hectoring hegemons" can subvert and co-opt without a full scale 'Armageddon' in which all manifestly lose! Even the realpolitik hegemons don't want 'Armageddon' – the tortuous notion is entirely for the feeble minded among them to keep them geopolitically motivated for 'imperial mobilization'!
As in any power-posturing and bluffing in uber-realist Chess and Poker on the Grand Chessboard, there are many standoffs and postures, alliances and treaties, that can lead to a credible and manageable 'MAD' like conclusive détente of equitable peace and relative security (as during the Cold War) even today.
And this can easily transpire despite the somewhat 'lowly' status of the Russian-Chinese economies and their perceived military under-preparedness compared to the Hectoring Hegemons'. The fantastic interdependence of the global economies and the fluidity of global finance alone can become primal guarantors of peace if the 'checkmating' moves are judiciously and collaboratively played! When a superpower's lifelines become global trade, world stock markets and offshore manufacture, and its national debt is held by others, it also becomes its Achilles heal.
Thus it is profound shortsightedness to only include military prowess, and GDP and domestic spending based econometric dominance in the calculus of détente. Economic and resource vulnerability under Globalization are just as essential pieces on the Grand Chessboard. While the 'Hectoring Hegemons' spearheading the Global North's hegemony over the Global South seem to realize this acutely as they form Unions and Alliances and put up global military bases across the 'Arc of Crises' (as of 2004 more than 700 ), to construct the global supermarket for a neo-liberal "fast [food] world" , the resource rich and yet criminally impoverished nations of the South do not seem to be able to capitalize on this god-sent serendipitous asset already sitting in their pathetically divided laps.
It is so incredibly bizarre that it should occur to the commonest of commoner taxi-driver to ask the obvious question "what right has god granted to the West to come pillaging in our lands and dictate to us how we should live or govern ourselves" when it doesn't seem to occur to his ruling elite in their policy planning calculus, and who continually seem to bow and scrape to just a single phone call from their Masters du jour. It is indeed heartening to hear the plebeians' unconstrained imagination soar with various self-defense scenarios to safeguard ones' independence and self-determination - but only after one has plied them with a hearty meal in dignified settings and got them to open up a window into their genuine plebeian thoughts - that is bar none. The common 'uneducated' man in his moralist and freedom-aspiring flights of fancy can easily give the best of Hollywood script writers a run for their money (who, it is rumored, often do create the 'reality' of war-game scenarios for the Pentagon that are not just limited to publicly viewable blockbusters like 'Dr. Strangelove').
Unfortunately, these lofty thoughts for freedom from injustices and hegemony in the quest for a more equitable distribution of the world's wealth with liberty afforded to all human beings to pursue the pleasures of life and happiness - yes even those in the Global South - are still only flights of fancy because morality presumably died with Prophet Moses, or perhaps it was stillborn. When was the last time that the glorious Ten Commandments was the basis of any nation's foreign policy? In fact, the only nation that any fair student of political science and political history can even point to in the accurately recorded annals of history as being based entirely upon the 'Law Givers' own moral teachings, is what the Prophet of Islam founded in Medina 1400 years ago and ruled the new nation-state of Islam for 10 years until his death.
Unfortunately, its universally acknowledged moral temper too died with the Prophet of Islam, the meritorious spread of Islam after the Prophet's demise and its global preeminence for 700 years notwithstanding. Lots of empires have flourished over the ages, morality being quite orthogonal to their emergence and dominance. Hence global preeminence and dominant civilization as an 'empire' is not a prima facie evidence of its morality and zenith of humanity in its relation to other 'lesser' nations anymore for Muslims' rise during the European 'Dark Ages', than it is of America's rise today as a global superpower during the Muslims' and the Global South's 'Dark Age'.
All rulers have generally ruled with the 'ubermensch' "might makes right" political philosophy with rare exceptions, and all struggles for freedom from their respective 'la mission civilisatrice' du jour have been waged only by peoples and nations of unflinching courage and determination who unequivocally refused to accept the suzerainty of any 'Hectoring Hegemons' upon them. Such is the amazing unforgettable history of mankind, right alongside the ruling elite's "hegemony is old as mankind".
One wonders then, that when such 'flights of fancy' scenarios for self-defense to acquire and retain full sovereignty and genuine independence - a never ending struggle as old as mankind - can occur even to the lowly 'taxi-driver' and is the documented history of the world, they must surely also occur to the burgeoning Asian powers, to the smaller surrounding nations, and certainly to the vastly more seasoned and sophisticated policy planners and strategic thinkers inhabiting their august corridors of power.
So then, the ordinary plebeian 'taxi-driver' – quite representative of the ordinary masses with street smarts – rightly ponders, why is such collectivist self-defense not occurring?
The astute plebeian is unfortunately not privy to the corridors of power and cannot comprehend the mechanics of how its own ruling elite is repeatedly coerced and co-opted into becoming so impotent that they are unable to enter into any sort of "full spectrum" deterrence alliance either among themselves, or with their immediate geographical neighbors with whom the beleaguered nations share borders and cultures, or in conjunction with the bigger minnows even if at a distance, no matter how corrupted and self-serving the ruling might be.
Shouldn't rational self-defense trump unbridled greed, he asks? Only the obvious moral truisms and commonsense is within his limited ken and purview, not the Machiavellian obfuscation and deceptions surrounding the mechanics of power-plays as he does not posses either the intellectual tools nor the time to unravel them.
So he can unbeguilingly only observe that even the murderous gangster Mafiosos are wont to make alliances to protect their territories from outside invaders! He can trivially only ask what has happened to courage, to self-respect, to self-determination, to chutzpah? Has it all been hogged by the defenseless Iran and Venezuela? And he can only emotionally lament that the ruling elite in the rest of Global South seems to be walking on its knees and entirely co-opted one way or another.
But he cannot comprehend what makes such acquiescence to hectoring hegemon happen when many clear paths of alliances and mutual cooperation are plainly visible to all and sundry despite the variegated fog of contrived enmities and competing geopolitical interests?
If a EU can transpire, and a NU is in the clandestine offing, what prevents an AU from transpiring? Surely when the house is on fire, all must unite to put out the fire before arguing about domestic matters?
Unless of course, he conjectures, the ruling elite have become the fifth columnist for empire and are indeed the arsonists in the fire brigade! Such is the profound intelligence as well as the ineptitude of the common man for he simply cannot fathom the mechanics of how such cowardly co-optation to the hectoring hegemons is continually brought to fruition.
What is 'Alice in Wonderland' dream state, what is Hollywood-like contrived reality, and what is the naked truth of the matter when 'Alice' is awake - the distinction is now so blurred between the insanity of "you are with us or with the terrorists" and the extremes of 'off with the head' and real "shock and awe" elocution of the 'Queen' to the synchronized singing of “United We Stand” at the absurd 'Unbirthday Party' of the 'Mad Hatter' - that the ordinary man in the street is unable to comprehend how such co-optation into giving up ones' own rational and commonsensical self-defense against the hegemons du jour is being deftly orchestrated through the complex wheeling-dealing of real world power-plays to which he is not privy.
Thus it appears to him, if he is among the one billion+ Muslims for instance who are presently bearing the full brunt of this fiction of 'war on terror', that the West is genuinely against Islam and is waging a real war against this lofty religion of a billion plus peoples to conquer Muslim lands. The goal is appreciated correctly, not the devious mechanism employed to achieve it. While he quite understands that this 'global war on terror' is fake, he fails to comprehend the real mechanics of how it is deliberately crafted with covert-ops and black-ops a plenty to actually provoke its natural auto-pilot sustainment into existence for a lifetime - because that is what the hectoring hegemons have publicly proclaimed it will take to achieve "full spectrum dominance" through a "World War IV".
And he therefore fails to perceive that 'militant Islam' is merely the well managed patsy du jour, that it is not a happenstance consequence due to 'blow-back' or the so called 'triumphalism' of 'Islam the religion' as the veritable neo-con and closet-Straussian Bernard Lewis would like the world to believe, but a deliberate pre-meditated contrivance ab-initio that originated in the Orwellian minds of the hectoring hegemons decades ago.
The latter are, after all, inimitable masters of psyops and sociological control with a profound understanding of "doctrinal motivations" and how to mobilize an unwilling largely ignorant Western public for conquest; as the hectoring hegemons believe (rightfully or not) that their well fed "democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization" and requires a constant and believable danger as the 'scare-crow' to motivate its 'populist democracy' into continually accepting shedding their young blood for the absurd doctrine of "preemptive self defense" in far off lands.
Thus in a nutshell, the plebeians of the world well know that 'uniting' is the key principle that is required for any self-defense, it is not that profound. What they don't understand is how and why it is not transpiring; what red herrings and covert-ops and co-optations and "techniques of infamy" are systematically disenabling them of natural unity that is normally borne of a shared plight, especially given the plethora of other natural conducive factors such as geographical proximity, cultural, and long-historical affiliations?
One must however, if one has the geopolitical acumen to understand the diabolical “forces that drive them”, not count on the efficacy of such dissent to avert any of the catastrophic scenarios, including a staged 'Gulf of Tonkin', or a staged nuclear terrorist act within the United States, or an Israeli attack on Iran, or an escalating Israeli war in Lebanon and Syria, all of which can lead to “'defensive' US military action against Iran [and Pakistan]”.
The Iranian and other Asian leaders would be wise to not underestimate the tortuous power of the 'Dark-Side' that is attempting to seed Total War in Asia using America as the 'hired hand'.
Rather than continually dismiss the tortuous aspirations for global domination as lunacy, or mis-guided, it would be prudent to treat them as devilishly real doctrines of conquest by a handful of the world's ruling elite partnering together in a twisted convolution of mutual interests – never to be underestimated for its destructive power upon the weak. Such an assessment, based on full spectrum comprehension of reality, permits the construction of the only effective self-defense by the weak. Why such a self-defense is not transpiring is a puzzle that defies explanation.
That deterrent solution-space, according to Project Humanbeingsfirst, is only in the forming of NATO-like Full Spectrum Alliances with an effective “Dr. Strangelove” type Samson Option that is publicly targeted at Israel and Western Europe as a declared self-defense nuclear doctrine, to construct the only viable and effective Deterrence: MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)!
Only in the insanity of its “sublime irony”, wherein, in the immortal words of Winston Churchill, “safety [is] the sturdy child of terror and survival the twin brother of annihilation”, can there be any assured prospects of defeating the war-mongers before they hand the world a nuclear fait accompli.
Thank you for reading. I am offering you not just the recipe of commonsense, for all that I have stated above is nothing but commonsense, but also my free labor. You are surrounded by Westoxified mentally colonized slaves. If you seek advice from cowards, you shall become one. Cowardly nations can never be free. This isn't cricket dear Prime Minister. This is the practice of the Art of War in order to put our nation on the right path. It needs people of courage who can think outside the box; not enslaved minds whose first thought is to seek bailout from the IMF lamenting “we have no other choice”.
Beggars shall never be free when they continue to dream of American Aid. The recipients of this Trojan horse of modernity are forever forced into prostitution by the massa. If you will not understand that simple calculus, I have wasted my time. Yet, I continue to hope that we shall endeavor together as a nation to throw the tea overboard. I would like to experience “naya Pakistan” in my own lifetime.
