Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency By Zahir Ebrahim

Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency

By Zahir Ebrahim | Project Humanbeingsfirst.org | PDF

An Exclusive Report for Tim King’s Salem News

[Dateline California, October 26, 2010] The BBC News reported on October 06, 2010 that ‘Nato contractors ‘attacking own vehicles’ in Pakistan’. It stated in its carefully worded “limited hangout”:

‘Nato supply convoys travelling through Pakistan to Afghanistan have regularly come under attack in the past, but following Pakistan’s decision to block their route through the Khyber Pass, they now face an even bigger security threat. Hundreds of tankers and trucks have been left stranded on highways and depots across Pakistan, with little or no security. Taliban militants have regularly been targeting the convoys, even when they are heavily protected. But many believe it is not just the militants who pose a security threat to the convoys. The owners of oil tankers being used to supply fuel to Nato in Afghanistan say some of the attacks on their convoys are suspicious. They say there is evidence to suggest that bombs have been planted in many of vehicles by the “Nato contractors” – individuals or companies who have been contracted by Nato to supply fuel and goods to forces in Afghanistan.’

With allegation-phrases like “many believe”, “they say”, without lending any forensic or critical factual analysis as to why ‘Nato contractors’ who work directly for the Pentagon and NATO, might be doing such a thing, the belated disclosure feeds rumors that are already ripe among the ‘untermensch’ victims that there is something terribly wrong with this ‘War on Terror’ whose principal victims since its inception continue to be innocent civilians. Why would the occupation forces want to increase the discontent of the already beleaguered people by such rumor-mongering reportage, and by the systematic controlled leaks that we see cropping up now and then which convey, from its own official records, American barbarianism upon Muslim civilians? Or more aptly framed in Michael Hayden’s vernacular, what is the purpose of this “tickling” reportage?

Our newsmedia, both mainstream print and television, and almost all of alternate media largely playing controlled dissent worldwide, are unwilling to inform the public of the military significance of “insurgency” and “counter-insurgency”. The simpleton mind of the public, these lords of public relations must feel in sympathy with the Report from Iron Mountain, remains “unexposed to the exigencies of higher political or military responsibility” and cannot therefore appreciate the value of the “considerable political sophistication” that goes into the deep calculus of hegemony as “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.”

Poorly read of history as the commoners of course are, including the most educated ones among them with ‘scholar’ stamped upon their forehead, and weaned on the immediate gratification of the here and the now by having pursued their ‘American Dreams’ in deep slumber all of their lives, the plebes obviously naturally fail to recognize the distemper of hegemony when it is inchoate and kept brewing under covers.

They cannot believe that “Peace and its duration, like war, is determined by natural laws that in their fundamental principles do not vary nor are found wanting”. And when this law of hegemony is steamrolled into practice in the form of the lifetime of ‘War on Terror’, the only thing visible to the public is the death and mayhem with the respected narrators keeping score. But not the military precision with which red-teaming/blue-teaming insurgency and counter-insurgency are employed to perpetually engage the world in the controlled chaos of World War IV.

The factual political science reason for engaging in such permanent warfare was serendipitously discovered in the 1908-09 minute books of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace in 1953-54 by the indefatigable Congressional Investigator Norman Dodd, for the Reece Committee investigating the suspected subversion by tax-exempt foundations. Norman Dodd rehearsed from memory the occurrence of the following question from the minute books:

‘We are now at the year 1908, which was the year that the Carnegie Foundation began operations. In that year, the trustees, meeting for the first time, raised a specific question, which they discussed throughout the balance of the year in a very learned fashion. The question is: “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” And they conclude that no more effective means than war to that end is known to humanity. So then, in 1909, they raised the second question and discussed it, namely: “How do we involve the United States in a war?”’

That same principal reason guides the presence of American soldiers all across the “Global zone of percolating violence”, as Zbigniew Brzezinski characterized these locations in 1996, where we now find Western troops engaging in the ‘War on Terror’.

So why should NATO set fire to their own convoys and blame it on the insurgents? Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency was forensically examined in my article last year “The Decapitation of Pakistan by its own Military!” and is reproduced below in its entirety. The reader is invited to spend some time reviewing Operation Gladio cited in its footnote. For convenience, watch Operation Gladio part1part2part3.

VALIDATION UPDATE July 21, 2011: US aid may be flowing to Afghan insurgents

Zahir’s note: The United States government is itself admitting that American funds are being funneled to the insurgents, once the disingenuousness of doublespeak statements like these are peeled away. Also see John Perkins on how corruption is manufactured among the beggar nations by the donor agencies, slyly aided and abetted, and encouraged by deliberately turning a blind eye knowing full well where the funds are going. The process of covertly as well as overtly inducing corruption to co-opt, and then claiming there is corruption during mechanical “audits”, is an art well known to those who understand imperial statecraft and its multifaceted notions of cover stories and “plausible deniability” (see Anatomy of Conspiracy Theory for the presidential directive NSC 10/2 if unfamiliar with the concept of “plausible deniability”):

‘… “US agencies have taken steps to strengthen their oversight of US funds, but the United States still has limited visibility over how these funds flow through the Afghan economy, leaving these funds vulnerable to fraud or diversion to insurgents,” said the audit.

The findings come amid growing frustration in Washington over the corruption-plagued Afghan government and steadily declining public support for the nearly 10-year-old war.

The audit reviewed oversight of US aid converted to cash, including electronic payments to contractors, and assessed American efforts to bolster the Kabul government’s regulation of commercial banks and informal hawala financial networks.

The report said that “given the amount of US cash that flows through the Afghan economy, it is imperative that the US government have robust measures in place to ensure that these funds are not used for fraud or diverted to insurgent networks.

“However, we found that agencies have not instituted sufficient controls over US funds,” it said. … Since 2002, the United States has spent more than $70 billion on security and development assistance in Afghanistan.’


VALIDATION UPDATE March 25, 2011: 331 US officials may leave Pak under secret deal over Davis

Zahir’s note: The government of Pakistan is even admitting that insurgency is fabricated (see Letter: Understanding the ‘arc of crisis’ with minimal work By Zahir Ebrahim which records my own defeat: “Just don’t ask me how to get rid of our fifth columnists – that’s where I stand defeated.”)

‘Islamabad: A total of 331 US officials in Pakistan, most of them suspected of engaging in espionage under diplomatic cover, have been “identified to leave the country” under a secret deal between the two sides for release of American national Raymond Davis, a media report said on Thursday. … An official said that most of the suspected US officials were “involved in suspicious activities, including photographing and filming of sensitive installations like airbases (Warsak, near Peshawar and Multan), defence bunkers along the Pakistan-India border near Lahore, recruiting persons supporting their activities and launching local people for suspicious activities by offering lucrative benefits”.’

[PHBF Report] Dateline Sept. 28 to Nov. 02, 2009, California, United States

Let me begin this very difficult exposition as a Pakistani citizen (my only citizenship, by choice, despite being a legal permanent resident in the United States for almost three decades) with the question Who really killed Benazir Bhutto? [1] I mean who are the prime-movers?

The trigger-pullers are obviously irrelevant and remain faceless. They will surely never be known.

Well, let’s read it in Benazir Bhutto’s own lucid words which have now been augmented, almost two years later, with the Pakistan’s Army Chief of Staff’s belated disclosures of September 21, 2009. [2] Why belated? Well, please see these unpublished letters to many Pakistani newspaper editors on their repeatedly perpetuating the fiction of Who Killed Benazir Bhutto in cahoots with the ‘hectoring hegemons’ and their agents! All traitors and co-opted errand boys. [3]

The American agenda for Pakistan is not a state-secret. Rather, it is only thinly disguised as perpetually fighting the “insurgents” in a lifetime of war, the World War IV. [4] Whereas, in reality, both the “insurgency”, and the “counter-insurgency”, are entirely designed and fabricated in the USA as part of the evolving tactics of Hegelian Dialectics. They are enacted on the ground by various two-bit errand boys and expert trigger pullers. The already well-known existence of black-ops assassination squads in Pakistan/Afghanistan, known to the local peoples for years as the real prime-movers behind the heinous local terrorist acts, belatedly confirmed by NYT, WP, and NYT, in August 2009. [5] See these two December 2008 reports on the Mumbai terrorist Act as reportedly orchestrated by ALI BABA from his perch in the Hindu Kush. [6] The arrival of the black-ops in the region is not recent, albeit the public disclosures might be.

Starting in the immediate aftermath of 911, and perhaps even earlier, Pakistan may well have become the largest deployment region for the CIA in modern times, both covert (unknown to Pakistani government and secretly working to destabilize Pakistan with false-flag operations), and overt (with Pakistani military’s aiding and abetting, in full view of the world, ostensibly fighting the “insurgents”, “Bin Laden”, “Al-Qaaeda”, but in the process mainly “tickling” its own innocent civilians in many a barbaric way). [7]

And since Jundallah got launched to destabilize Iran from Pakistani soil (their “insurgencies”), Baluchistan along with the Pak-Afghan regions have been awash with black-ops, and obviously of course, also with officially recognized US soldiers manning American military bases on Pakistani soil. [8] But these soldiers of freedom were rarely spotted in the streets of major cities before. The following video report of September 08, 2009, therefore portends of ominous whirlwinds imminently engulfing Pakistan: [9]

RussiaToday September 08, 2009, Contractors in Pakistan: are troops next?

To put this ominous presence of soldiers of freedom and fortune on Pakistani soil in full black-ops context of NATO and the Western Alliance, of diabolically manufacturing and sustaining the very pretexts out of uniform to enable the in-uniform forces to continue on with their perpetual mission of fighting World War IV, it is sufficient to look at what is transpiring in IRAQ for lessons to wisely apply to one’s own predicament in order to avoid a far worse one.

Fast forwarding past all the initial pretenses of Sadaam Husain being responsible for 911, his WMDs about to destroy America, the Mission Accomplished statement of President Bush, and the “oops! intelligence failure” statements by the neo-con’s own Iraq Study Group after the raping of Mesopotamia and the DNA of its ancient and proud peoples were fait accompli, etceteras, the biggest reason for not withdrawing the US troops from Iraq is continually stated to be the infernal ongoing INSURGENCY. Iran, Shias, Sunnis, and Al-Qaeeda are variously blamed for the main cause of America’s continued military occupation of Iraq; new “troop-surges” are periodically announced amidst some dissenting consternation willy-nilly expressed in its news media and by its politicians to let the American public know that it is not an easy choice to be making. The Iranian strawman has already been amply unraveled elsewhere. [10] However, witness the following familiar statement of former President George W. Bush on the legend of the new Ali Baba [11] of Mesopotamia, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi: [12]

You know, I hate to predict violence, but I just understand the nature of the killers. This guy, Zarqawi, an al Qaeda associate — who was in Baghdad, by the way, prior to the removal of Saddam Hussein — is still at large in Iraq. And as you might remember, part of his operational plan was to sow violence and discord amongst the various groups in Iraq by cold- blooded killing. And we need to help find Zarqawi so that the people of Iraq can have a more bright — bright future.” — George W. Bush, Press Conference, 1 June 2004

The indefatigable Michel Chossudovsky, citing Bush’s afore-quoted statements wrote: “Zarqawi constitutes Washington’s justification for the continued military occupation of Iraq, not to mention the brutal siege of densely populated urban areas directed against ‘Al Qaeda in Iraq’ which is said to be led by Zarqawi.” [13]

It is now November 02, 2009 – and the United States is still very much in Iraq. Its own economy is in deep recession, and the free-money printing by the Feds is taking it towards hyperinflation. The world is not only mired in its worst global financial crisis that is seeing the end of Western hegemony in its industrial production capabilities, but is also plagued by a global pandemic, global warming, and an un-ending global war on terror, sinking valuable trillions of dollars which could otherwise have been spent on converting overnight the entire world’s six billion population into America’s middle class status of the 1960s, while also wiping out much of the developing nations’ unbearable debt. That alone would most assuredly have earned the United States the genuine love of the entire world instead of the present shoes thrown at its all powerful president. How remarkably has the world’s sole superpower been brought down so pathetically to its knees by the Ali Baba of Iraq that today it cannot even extricate itself from giving a diabolical police-state to its own peoples in the pretext of saving them from the global terrorist! What sort of idiotic “American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives” agenda, and what kind of asinine quest for “Full Spectrum Dominance” is this? [14] Wow Ali Baba, what magical powers you have of not only so successfully entangling the United States in the Iraqi “quagmire” indefinitely, but of being the prime-mover behind the demise of nation-states to usher in the only permissible solution out of these multifaceted global threats – world government! [15]

Focussing on the pertinence at hand however, what does the Ali Baba of Iraq have to do with the following shocking news reports purveyed in titles which are illustrative enough of the key point: “Were British Special Forces Soldiers Planting Bombs in Basra?” September 25, 2005 ; British “Undercover Soldiers” Caught driving Booby Trapped Car “They refused to say what their mission was.” September 20, 2005. [16]

Michel Chossudovsky, writing the latter article and displaying his un co-opted integrity, asked the 64-million dollar obvious questions – the same modus operandi being replayed in Pakistan with even more drastic effect, as now the black-ops have been hardened in Iraq on how not to get caught when plenty of patsies can be trivially harvested for the job of “legitimizing Insurgency” [17] – which none appear to be publicly asking in Pakistan:

‘The following Reuters report raises some disturbing questions.

Why were undercover British “soldiers” wearing traditional Arab headscarves firing at Iraqi police?

The incident took place just prior to a major religious event in Basra.

The report suggests that the police thought the British soldiers looked “suspicious”. What was the nature of their mission?

Occupation forces are supposed to be collaborating with Iraqi authorities. Why did British Forces have to storm the prison using tanks and armoured vehicles to liberate the British undercover agents?

British forces used up to 10 tanks” supported by helicopters “to smash through the walls of the jail and free the two British servicemen.”

Was there concern that the British “soldiers” who were being held by the Iraqi National Guard would be obliged to reveal the nature and objective of their undercover mission?

A report of Al Jazeera TV, which preceded the raid on the prison, suggests that the British undercover soldiers were driving a booby trapped car loaded with ammunition. The Al Jazeera report (see below) also suggests that the riots directed against British military presence were motivated because the British undercover soldiers were planning to explode the booby trapped car in the centre of Basra: …’

See: Who is behind “Al Qaeda in Iraq”? Pentagon acknowledges fabricating a “Zarqawi Legend”, in which the Washington Post of April 10, 2006, in its rare moment of candor – just like the New York Times’ ex post facto exposé of April 20, 2008 on the Pentagon using retired Generals as mercenaries for hire to blatantly lie on American television in order to drum public support for the Iraq war [18] – is quoted in full context as follows: [19]

‘“The Zarqawi campaign is discussed in several of the internal military documents. “Villainize Zarqawi/leverage xenophobia response,” one U.S. military briefing from 2004 stated. It listed three methods: “Media operations,” “Special Ops (626)” (a reference to Task Force 626, an elite U.S. military unit assigned primarily to hunt in Iraq for senior officials in Hussein’s government) and “PSYOP,” the U.S. military term for propaganda work…” (WP. 10 April 2006)

The military’s propaganda program, according to the Washington Post, has “largely been aimed at Iraqis, but seems to have spilled over into the U.S. media. One briefing slide about U.S. “strategic communications” in Iraq, prepared for Army Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the top U.S. commander in Iraq, describes the “home audience” as one of six major targets of the American side of the war.” (WP, op cit.)

An internal document produced by U.S. military headquarters in Iraq, states that “the Zarqawi PSYOP program is the most successful information campaign to date.”’

With that precious lesson in “imperial mobilization” through sustained PSYOP and manufactured “insurgency” learnt from our brethren Muslim nation of Iraq – where, in retrospect, and in moments of reflection through their daily strife and humiliation, its beleaguered people must surely ponder upon what could they have possibly done earlier, before 1990, during the iron-reign of Sadaam Hussein, and throughout those horrible intervening 13 years of Western hegemonic sanctions, to have avoided this new dismal fate altogether – let’s return to Pakistan.

The multimodal approaches to destabilizing, and consequently balkanizing Pakistan under the fabled pretext of its own illusive Ali Baba, “Osama Bin Laden”, have been so transparent, that today, finally, many a retired con-fession artist are getting in on the act to claim the flag of patriotism. [20] Going for hajj after having eaten 900 mice is the favorite pastime of Pakistani praetorian guards. I am only waiting for any sitting Pakistani General to rise to that occasion, if it’s not already too late! [21] But I am afraid it probably is – see here, here, here, here, and here. [22]

The decapitation of Pakistan by Pakistan’s finest, wantonly justifying the inglorious ‘white man’s burden‘ – the same old ‘la mission civilisatrice‘ under a new name – upon impoverished indigenous shoulders! [23] Even Martin Luther Kings’ penetrating description fails to do justice to the scale of calamity in Pakistan: [24]

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 shameful and criminal dislocation of up to 2.4 million civilians in May of this year was rightly described as “an exodus that is beyond biblical”. [25]

In Pakistan, an exodus that is beyond biblical

Just as from the USSR’s point of view in yesteryear, the “insurgency” against them in Afghanistan was foreign inculcated, entirely fabricated in the USA (as we know today but held as a closely guarded secret then), which thus forced the Soviets to apply counter-insurgency measures, and subsequently, an outright invasion of Afghanistan (read Brzezinski’s own statements in Saving Pakistan, and watch Brzezinski speak in this video clip devilishly crafting the “insurgency” for the Russians on the Pak-Afghan border); the so called “insurgency” in Pakistan is also calculatingly fabricated, ab initio, in the USA through covert intervention and black-ops. [26] Subsequently, with sufficient “tickling” during the overt counter-insurgency operations, and by astutely harvesting all the cultural cracks and lacunae of the people, the “insurgency” acquires a reactionary life of its own. [27]

That latter stage, as well as on-going black-ops induced wanton acts of terrorism using the pre-“tickled” dupes and patsies as now rapidly transpiring, October 9-12, 2009, NYT, NYT – like the secret and ‘officially denied’ component of NATO’s Operation Gladio in Western Europe of yesteryear which blamed it on the communists to keep an increasingly skeptical public’s fear of the then boogieman du jour continually alive – are Machiavellianly projected in the news media, by the native informants, by the fabricated dissent-chiefs, and the Mighty Wurlitzer, as INSURGENCY. [28] And therefore, it is officially argued, an unarguable raison d’être for continuing the barbaric counter-insurgency to implement the writ of the state. This predictably creates a self-sustaining destabilization as both commonsense and political science 101 would inform even an imbecile. The blood-drenched puppetshow so enacted, inevitably affords a compelling pretext to the puppetmasters to justify their own military intervention to “save” the people who are incapable of doing it themselves.

The innocent Pakistan military, not too well-versed in political science or Hegelian Dialectics based Machiavellian state-craft (I presume), in this prelude to NATO forces marching in, is similarly being compelled to take real counter-insurgency measures like the Soviets. Aided and abetted of course by high ranking traitors from within their own ranks, and by their foreign paymasters’ militaries (NATO, Blackwater now renamed Xe, and other un-named foreign divisions operating within Pakistan which I call “Jundallah-plusplus” to distinguish them from “Jundallah” which is apparently targeting Iran from Pakistani soil). The simple fact that Pakistan is supplying all the drinking water (bottled by Nestle), and full logistics channel for war-making supplies to NATO in Afghanistan is telling in and of itself. Pakistan is equally responsible for destroying the Afghan society, the Afghan people, and there is no less spilled-blood of innocent Afghani Muslims upon Pakistan’s hands over the past 30 years, than upon the United States’.

Pakistani military helped destroy Afghanistan, and they are now helping to destroy Pakistan. No Pakistani civilian I know, including myself, ever authorized the Pakistani military to destroy Afghanistan, or aid the United States in its own hegemonic plans on the Grand Chessboard. Do you know anyone? So from where did they get their mandate? I would rather have clean drinking water in my tap, damn it! What good are the bloody nukes when they become the raison d’être for our very destruction in this manner without ever firing a single missile at the drones that are killing our own peoples?

It gives me no pleasure to repeatedly rehearse this footnote to history. What is not already obvious to the Pakistanis? It must surely still occur to many a reasonable military man serving with genuine zeal and honor in the real pivot of power in Pakistan that the end is drawing near. What are they doing idly watching the battle of their lives from the sidelines – when they are not shooting or displacing their own peoples that is? As quoted from a Dawn newspaper column:

THIS article poses two questions: on the day after US/Nato forces invade and occupy some of Balochistan and Waziristan, what will we say we should have done, and why aren’t we doing it now? Is this far-fetched? … One hopes that a small group of patriotic officers in Pakistan are also asking themselves what can be done, and why aren’t we doing it now.” [29]

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! And that’s the tortuous déjà vu reality today. [30]

If one is genuinely confused about who is the enemy, whether it’s the Taliban, Al-Qaeeda, Islamism, Militant Islam, unknown foreign fighters, foreign intelligence agencies, India, Israel, American interests, or the United States’ globalist oligarchs hell bent on criminally realizing their one-world government agenda by fabricating and harvesting “revolutionary times” across the planet, [31] please spend some time reviewing the book The Pakistan Decapitation Papers available from Project Humanbeingsfirst.org [32] Write to me if you are still uncertain about who is behind “tickling” the so called “insurgents” into existence, and why that is necessary in order to fight the lifetime of World War IV with our blood. After all, God is on your side”! [33]

Press TV September 14, 2009 Ex-Intel officer discloses US plans for Pakistan, exclusive interview of Pakistan’s former ISI Chief General Hamid Gul to Press TV http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=106141&sectionid=351020401

‘US officials “want to go for Pakistan’s nuclear assets. They are inching close to those nuclear assets day by day,” he added. When asked about Washington’s long-term goal in Pakistan, the former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) said that the United States wants to keep the country destabilized.’ — Press TV Sept. 14, 2009.

This is the same General Gul turning on his own patrons after he had fully assisted them in “giving to the USSR its Vietnam war” from Pakistani soil. An African proverb says: you need a very long spoon to sip with the devil.

Tehran Times September 14, 2009, Blackwater involved in Bhutto and Hariri hits: former Pakistani army chief http://www.tehrantimes.com/index_View.asp?code=203224

‘TEHRAN – Pakistan’s former chief of army staff, General Mirza Aslam Beg (ret.), has said the U.S. private security company Blackwater was directly involved in the assassinations of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto and former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.’ — Tehran Times Sept. 14, 2009

Why was this General muted when all the specious reports were being so boisterously promulgated by the Mighty Wurlitzer’s propaganda machinery both in the West and in Pakistan’s own newspapers?
