Pakistan-India Conflict is Funded and Fomented by the Same Faces that Brought you the 'War on Terrorism'
The imminent nuclear conflict between Pakistan and India has been funded and fomented by the same nefarious influences that brought you the 'war on terrorism.'

It's common knowledge in intelligence circles that the Inter Services Intelligence Agency (Pakistan's secret service) runs the entire country in the shadow of dictator General Pervez Musharraf. In turn, the CIA co-ordinates the activities of the ISI. This alliance gave birth to Osama bin Laden, Al-Qaeda and the current war on terrorism. Osama bin Laden left Saudi Arabia in 1979 to fight the invading Soviets in Afghanistan. By 1984 he was running the front organization known as MAK, (Maktab al-Khidamar) which eventually mutated into Al-Qaeda, consisting of the more extreme members of the former group. During the war MAK was nurtured by Pakistan's Inter-services Intelligence Agency, ISI.

The ISI was the CIA's covert ally and conduit against Moscow's occupation. Via the ISI the kindergarten Al-Qaeda were trained, armed, funded and empowered by the CIA. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies -- a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987, as well as a "ceaseless stream" of CIA and Pentagon specialists who travelled to the secret headquarters of Pakistan's ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, Pakistan. There the CIA specialists met with Pakistani intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels, bin Laden included. The Central Intelligence Agency, using Pakistan's ISI, played a key role in training the Mujahideen.

It was
reported by the BBCthat the ISI aided bin Laden's escape from Afghanistan at the end of 2001. Since the CIA are basically the administrative masters of the ISI, they mandated and approved bin Laden's escape.

Furthermore, by direct order of President Bush,
5,000 members of Al-Qaeda and the Taliban were rescued via cargo planes as Kunduz fell to the Northern Alliancein November 2001. Bush had ordered the United States Central Command to set up a special air corridor to help insure the safety of the Pakistani rescue flights from Kunduz to the northwest corner of Pakistan, about two hundred miles away. To emphasise, these rescued individuals were high level Taliban and al-Qaeda operatives fighting against the United States. These secret airlifts gave these terrorists refuge primarily in Kashmir, the disputed border. The first incident that could have led to a nuclear war between India and Pakistan occured when, on December 13th 2001, a suicide squad of five heavily armed Muslim terrorists drove past a barrier at the Indian Parliament, in New Delhi, and rushed the main building. Nine people were killed in the shoot-out. Would this have happened if the Bush administration hadn't rescued 5,000 of these terrorists just three weeks previously?

OK, the Bush administration are fomenting tension amongst the Pakistani militants - what about India - who's stoking their fire? Answer, the Carlyle Group, of whom the Bush dynasty are stakeholders!

In January of this year, the
Moscow Times reportedthat British Prime Minister Tony Blair made a visit to India and Pakistan in an attempt to calm ethnic tensions between the two. In reality he was pushing the sale of a lucrative deal with arms merchant BAE Systems for 60 new jet fighters. The Russian newspaper stated 'Blair's minions are putting the squeeze on India to accept a $1.4 billion deal with arms merchant BAE Systems for 60 new jet fighters. This will no doubt have a very "calming influence" on the balance of power as the subcontinent teeters on the brink of nuclear war -- the same kind of calming influence gasoline has on fire. Of course, if Blair can get those billion warbucks into BAE's coffers, Master Georgie will be very pleased. For one of BAE's business partners is -- God, this is almost too easy! -- our old friends the Carlyle Group. Faithful readers know that Daddy Bush -- the former peddler of poison gas to Iraq -- has long been feeding at the Carlyle trough, working his contacts with Saudi royalty, the bin Laden family, Asian dictators, South American junta honchos and other respectable characters to cement sweetheart deals for the Reagan-Bush retreads who skim the cream off Carlyle's $13 billion nest egg.'

The BBC reported these BAE-India negotiations back in August 2001.

Here's the BAE-Carlyle Group partnership announced on BAE's own website.

The bin Laden-Bush monster defense contractor The Carlyle Group, which just happens to be
making a mint from the war on terrorism, stands to reap enormous profit from any India-Pakistan conflict, because it has direct ties to the companies (BAE) and intelligence agencies (CIA) that supply the both war machines!

Just like World War 2 - the hidden hand behind the scenes is at work to establish global order from nuclear chaos by manipulating the actions of both sides in the potential conflict.


On Tuesday 28th April the London Times caught up with the Propaganda Matrix with the following story on how both sides are being funded by the same people. Remember who broke the story first!

Britain has armed both sides

Original link:

INDIA and Pakistan have bought some of Britain's most combat-proven weapon systems, including fighter aircraft and warships.

India has bought Harriers, Jaguar fighter-bombers, Sea King helicopters and, in the 1980s, purchased the Royal Navy's aircraft carrier, HMS Hermes, which served in the 1982 Falklands War. The carrier, which carries British-built Sea Harriers, was renamed Viraat.

The Indian Navy has bought other second-hand warships from Britain, including Leander-class frigates. In 1993 Pakistan bought six Amazon-class frigates from Britain and also has Leander-class frigates.

Yet at present neither country is a leading defence customer for Britain. Recently British defence companies have been granted licences to sell arms to India to the value of ?65 million and to Pakistan ?6 million. For a country that sold arms worth ?4.7 billion in the past 12 months, keeping around 350,000 defence workers in employment, India and Pakistan represent a tiny proportion of the market.

The approved sales to India involved 700 separate licences, indicating that each contract was of small value ? unlike the potential deal involving the sale of 66 BAE Systems Hawk jet trainers for ?1 billion, which is still being negotiated.

Contracts signed in the past two years for India have included components for air-to-surface missiles, parts for aircraft machineguns and armoured personnel carriers and components for combat helicopters, military communications and riot control equipment. The orders for Pakistan have included components for combat helicopters and spare parts for frigates, military training aircraft and utility vehicles.

One of the biggest ongoing contracts with India involves the manufacture under licence of Jaguar ground-attack aircraft. Throughout the 1990s, BAE Systems, formerly British Aerospace, licensed the production of 126 Jaguars in India by Hindustan Aeronautics.

Yesterday, as Whitehall appeared to be confused about the implications of the possible sale of Hawk jet trainers to India, Richard Bingley, of the Campaign Against the Arms Trade lobby group, said: "It seems somewhat farcical to despatch the Foreign Secretary to the Asian subcontinent to promote peace while continuing to arm the region with UK defence exports."
