Has The US Invaded And Occupied Pakistan?

August 29, 2009

Talha Mujaddidi | PKKH Editorial Team &  Axis of Logic

We are watching it happen in the streets. The recurring nightmare has become a grim, new reality for the people of Pakistan. After watching the horrors of the U.S. invasions and occupations of Iraq and neighboring Afghanistan for 8 years, the “war on terror” has finally arrived in The Land of the Pure. The sudden arrival of U.S. marines, U.S. military Hummers, the hired killers of Blackwater, houses barricaded for U.S. personnel in Islamabad and the construction of the world’s largest U.S. “Embassy” are terrorizing this nation of 180 million people. The U.S. slaughter and destruction in Iraq and neighboring Afghanistan for the last 8 years warn them of what may lie in store for them, their families, their land.

The U.S. Marines

On 9/21/08 a bomb ripped through the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad killing scores of people and injuring hundreds. Prior to the bombing, U.S. marines off-loaded steel boxes from a truck, by-passed security and took them to the 4th floor of the building. US officials refused to cooperate with the government’s attempts to investigate their activities. One year later, U.S. Marines are leading the occupation of Pakistan.

Until this landing of U.S. forces, the nation’s spokesman for Foreign Affairs had been denying that 1000 U.S. marines were on their way to Islamabad. The thousand marines are now in the capital city of Islamabad. Some of them may be quietly slipping into Balochistan where the presence of JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) have been reported by foreign journalists. But most are here to defend what will be the largest U.S. embassy/fortress in the world, now under construction and to spearhead the invasion and occupation.

Costs to the U.S. Taxpayer

US Ambassador in Pakistan Anne W. Patterson

The total cost for housing and and general support for the marines alone will be US$112.5 million. US Ambassador Anne W. Patterson said the money is allocated as follows: “$5 million was for Marine quarters, $53.5 for housing infrastructure, $18 million for improvement of general services office area, and $36 million for temporary duty quarters and community support facilities.”

In Patterson’s explanation of the massive expansion of the U.S. Embassy she talked about 4 Billion (that’s with a “B”) dollars:

“The embassy expansion, she said, was a reflection of the long-term commitment that the US intended to have with Pakistan. Moreover, she said, quadrupling of the social, economic and military assistance that would touch $4 billion a year over the next 18 months, necessitated staff increase.”

Ambassador Patterson did not clarify whether the $4 Billion covers the construction which will make this embassy the largest in the world. When this construction is seen in context and coordination with the new level of U.S. occupation of Pakistan, it looks more like a permanent military base than an embassy for running military and covert operations not only in Pakistan but also in the region.

Weapons and Hummers

Eye witnesses and informed journalists have been reporting sightings of U.S. personnel in Islamabad for the past week or so, but now they are seen moving freely throughout the capital. The law (Section 144) provides that Pakistanis who own guns are not permitted to carry them in Islamabad. But U.S. personnel are showing Pakistanis that they are above the law as they openly brandish their weapons. It has also been confirmed that 3,000 U.S. military Hummers, locked and loaded are awaiting dispatch in Karachi’s Port Qasim. For millions of Pakistanis news of these Hummers conjures up images of U.S. troops charging through the streets of Iraqi cities, armed to the teeth, terrifying and often killing unarmed civilians.

On Feb. 23, 2009 the Pentagon revealed that over 70 U.S. military advisers had been secretly working in Pakistan.

Blackwater and the CIA

Pakistanis have known about the 300 U.S. military “advisers” lodged in Tarbela. But news of the arrival of the notorious Blackwater mercenaries in addition to the thousand U.S. marines are riveting the people. In Pakistan, Blackwater is trading its tainted name for a telling name “Xe Worldwide”, behind which these paid killers are now hiding.

Also, last week, Creative Associates International Inc (CAII), a CIA front, has been operating in Peshawar. They have now sealed off a road and set up shop near the houses of senior Pakistani officials in Islamabad, directly across from a school.

Dr._Shireen_Mazari

Dr. Shireen M. Mazari is a scholar and commentator on Strategic Studies and Political Science from Pakistan. She has a Ph.D. from Colombia University and was Director General of Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad, Pakistan and former Chairperson of Department of Defense and Strategic Studies at the Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad. She is critical of the relationship the Pakistan government has with the United States and India. Speaking for an opposition political party (Tehreek-e-Insaaf), Dr. Shireen Mazari speaks about the new arrival of U.S. forces in Pakistan:

“Will some of these go to the Pentagon’s assassination squads, who may take up residence in some of the barricaded Islamabad houses and with whom the present US commander in Afghanistan was directly associated? Ordinary officials at Pakistani airports have also been muttering their concerns over chartered flights flying in Americans whose entry is not recorded – even the flight crews are not checked for visas and so there is now no record-keeping of exactly how many Americans are coming into or going out of Pakistan. Incidentally the CAII’s Craig Davis who was deported has now returned to Peshawar! And let us not be fooled by the cry that numbers reflect friendship since we know what numbers meant to Soviet satellites.”

The Pearl Continental, a luxury hotel in Peshawar was bombed on June 9, 2009. The U.S. routinely blames these attacks on Muslim terrorists. The U.S. has also routinely sabotaged peace agreements between the Pakistan government and various resistance groups in Pakistan. Attacks like this are used to justify the current invasion and occupation by the United States.

Given little attention in the corporate media, Peshawar’s Pearl Continental Hotel was bombed on June 9, 2009. At the time of the bombing, Pakistani media reported officially that it was housing U.S. personnel at the time but did not mention Blackwater. However, Blackwater’s name began to surface in rumours and unofficial reports after the Peshawar bombing.

Ahmed Quraishi

On August 5, 2009, Ahmed Quraishi, political analyst, columnist and independent owner of a news website reported on the insertion of U.S. Marines, Blackwater, the CIA and military hardware into Pakistan:

“Pakistanis ask, ‘Who rules our streets, the Pakistani government or the Americans?’ And who let them in?”

“Three weeks ago a group of concerned Pakistani citizens in Peshawar wrote to the federal interior ministry to complain about the suspicious activities of a group of shadowy Americans in a rented house in their neighborhood, the upscale University Town area of Peshawar. A NGO calling itself Creative Associates International, Inc. leased the house”. According to its Website, CAII describes itself as ‘a privately-owned non-governmental organization that addresses urgent challenges facing societies today … Creative views change as an opportunity to improve, transform and renew …’ The description makes no sense. It is more or less a perfect cover for the American NGO’s real work: espionage…

“In Peshawar, CAII, opened an office to work on projects in the nearby tribal agencies of Pakistan. All of these projects, interestingly, are linked to the US government. CAII’s other projects outside Pakistan are also linked to the US government. In short, this NGO is not an NGO. It is closely linked to the US government.

Meanwhile, when asked about the expansion of the embassy, U.S. Ambassador Anne W. Patterson was “visibly shaken” and replied, “I’m speechless. To spy on Pakistan we don’t need a big US embassy. And we don’t need to spy either.” Patterson went on to say that Pakistan could turn into a “family station” – whatever that means to a U.S. colonial bureaucrat.

Ahmed further explains the CIA’s cover for the Blackwater mercenaries:

“In Peshawar, CAII told Pakistani authorities it needed to hire security guards for protection. The security guards, it turns out, were none other than Blackwater’s military-trained hired guns. They were used the CAII cover to conduct a range of covert activities in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province. The infamous Blackwater private security firm operates as an extension of the US military and CIA, taking care of dirty jobs that the US government cannot associate itself with in faraway strategic places. Blackwater is anything but a security firm. It is a mercenary army of several thousand hired soldiers.

“Pakistani security officials apparently became alarmed by reports that Blackwater was operating from the office of CAII on Chinar Road, University Town in Peshawar. The man in charge of the office, allegedly an American by the name of Craig Davis according to a report in Jang, Pakistan’s largest Urdu language daily, was arrested and accused of establishing contacts with ‘the enemies of Pakistan’ in areas adjoining Afghanistan. His visa has been cancelled, the office sealed, and Mr. Davis reportedly expelled back to the United States.

“It is not clear when Mr. Davis was deported and whether there are other members of the staff expelled along with him. When I contacted the US Embassy over the weekend, spokesman Richard Snelsire’s first reaction was, ‘No embassy official has been deported’.”

Keep in mind that Dr. Shireen Mazari who is in a position to know, stated flatly, “CAII’s Craig Davis who was deported has now returned to Peshawar!”

But Ahmed Quraishi explains the denial by the U.S. embassy:

“This defensive answer is similar to the guilt-induced reactions of US embassy staffers in Baghdad and Kabul at the presence of mercenaries working for US military and CIA. I said to Mr. Snelsire that I did not ask about an embassy official being expelled. He said he heard these reports and ‘checked around’ with the embassy officials but no one knew about this. ‘It’s baseless’ [he said]. So I asked him, “Is Blackwater operating in Pakistan, in Peshawar?” ‘Not to my knowledge’. [he answered].

“Fair enough. The US embassies in Baghdad and Kabul never acknowledged Blackwater’s operations in Iraq and Afghanistan either. This is part of low-level frictions between the diplomats at the US Department of State and those in Pentagon and CIA. The people at State have reportedly made it clear they will not acknowledge or accept responsibility for the activities of special operations agents operating in friendly countries without the knowledge of those countries and in violation of their sovereignty. Reports have suggested that sometimes even the US ambassador is unaware of what his government’s mercenaries do in a target country.”

Finally, Ahmed discusses a U.S. diplomat met secretly with an Indian diplomat inside Pakistan, knowing full well that India is considered to be an enemy state of Pakistan:

“In May, a US woman diplomat was caught arranging a quiet [read ‘secret’] meeting between a low-level Indian diplomat and several senior Pakistani government officials. An address in Islamabad – 152 Margalla Road – was identified as a venue where the secret meeting took place. The American diplomat in question knew there was no chance the Indian would get to meet the Pakistanis in normal circumstances. Nor was it possible to do this during a high visibility event. After the incident, Pakistan Foreign Office issued a terse statement warning all government officials to refrain from such direct contact with foreign diplomats in unofficial settings without prior intimation to their departments”.

NGOs that are not NGOs

In addition, many U.S. sponsored NGO’s are working to create news reports in mainstream media which are pro-U.S. For this purpose, many Pakistani analysts, retired generals, businessmen, journalists, and academics are being recruited. As Ahmed Quraishi said, “this NGO is not an NGO”, i.e. some Non Governmental Organizations operate under the control and direction of governments who use them for covert operations in foreign countries and fund them surreptitiously.

Conclusion

It’s clear that the current government has given full privileges to the US. They neither know how or want to draw a line against U.S. interference in Pakistani affairs. To put it bluntly, they are surrendering the sovereignty of Pakistan to a foreign power. Dr. Shireen Mazari says, “Whatever the US embassy gives out … the terrified Pakistani leadership echoes.” The objectives of the U.S. are clear: Deeper U.S. penetration will result in the destabilisation of Pakistan,leading to destabilization of the entire region. These U.S. military installations also strengthening their encirclement of Iran. The Pakistani political opposition parties are lip stuck at all these developments. The main reason for their silence is that they are as corrupt as the ruling PPP. No political party in Pakistan is in the mood to resist US hegemony. The Pakistan Army no longer shows any interest in directly interfering with political decisions. After the disastrous eight years under Musharraf, the people are also not ready for another military intervention. Today, millions of Pakistanis are terrified by their new, unwelcome guests from the west – the U.S. terrorists. We will now have to learn to tolerate and survive under this growing and increasingly dangerous U.S. colonization of Pakistan.

      • Brother Usman, What else u need further to prove that our PAK-Army is also sold out!!

        If not, then:

        a) Why haven’t they stop the drone attacks?
        b) Why not they stop all the logistic and intellengencia support to US, who are murdering our brothers and siters in Afghanistan.
        c) Why don’t they account the corrupt rulers and agents sitting in parliament?
        d) Why they are silent when these agent rulers are selling this Madina-e-Sani?

        To be silent and to corner urself is a bigger sin than the one who is doing this sin!!!!!!

        I am sorry but this PAK-ARMY seems to turned into NAPAK-Army!


  2. AoA!

    First of all, special thanks and wishes for Ahmed Qurasishi and Zaid Hamid sb & team for doing such a great job and letting people know about American’s intentions. Good Job!

    Secondly, in this chaotic situation where India is trying to attempt more thermonuclear tests and on the other hand Americans are penetrating into Pakistan, the ISI and our military – what the hell this Government is upto, can’t Mr. 10% (now 75%) speak against all this in front of his American masters and if NOT (which is clear) then what is the way around. How a common person (like me & several others) can play their roles


    • ================================================
      Sorry I accidentally pressed the “Submit” button
      ================================================

      and if this Govt. fails to stops them and keep allowing them and their activities then what is the work around to take out this Govt and bring in a new Govt (Although American seem interested in bringing Mr. Nawaz up)?

      Will you please spend sometime to educate the common people about the work around and what he can do to help?

      Regards,
      Muneeb


  3. ===============================================
    Special request to Zaid Hamid & Ahmed Qurasishi
    ===============================================

    Although, I know that you people are defense analyst and trying to keep an eye on current affairs of the country, but (Zaid sb having a team) are you planning to educate people of some civil defense as well in near future? I mean if in case of nuclear war between Pakistan & India we need to educate our masses about “how they can protect themselves (Although, most of us would be fighting)”?

    Please advice.

    Regards,
    Muneeb


  4. Very very depressing indeed…i dunno wat to say, i m speechless, i have no hope left in this country, looks like its not even a sovereign country anymore, looks more like 51st state of the U.S.


  5. Its really shocking news for the people of Islamic republic of Pakistan. I don’t understand why the Security, Law & Enforcement Agencies are not taking any serious step toward this matter.

    We all know that the worst and corrupt government we have in history of pakistan, but where is the pro-pakistani to deal with this issue.

    In private TV talk show they show the places which are occupied by them. Why law enforcement agencies not taking action in Islambad, Peshawar, karachi, Balouchistan and many other part of the country.

    In last there is no one loyal to Paksitan in this current Political stream, I suggest HANG THEM ALL with no mercy who ever and how big he is because now we have to change Pakistan in ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN for that we need to sacrifice ourselves again for our future generation.

    There is lot more to say But…. may be later.

    From,

    True & Sincere Citizen of
    ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN ZINDABAD


  6. US has penetrated in Pakistan. If present Government is installed Government and they are facilitating US in Capturing Pakistan, What our Oppsition Parties are doing??. Their lips are also sealed. Furthermore, Our Pak Army on which not only Pakistani Nation is Proud but they are ray of hope for entire Muslim World and their Job is to safeguard sovereignty of Pakistan, Why they are silent and letting the present Government to submit our National Interests in the hands of enemy??. I am afraid that everyone has been booked and payed then who will come for our rescue.???


  7. Their presence will increase suicide bombings in the capital city. US marines will harass our people, kidnap them and no one in this legendary corrupt, traitor & inept Govt would give a damn about it. Our foolish A Q Khan might be on their list as well. I believe they have also been hired by ‘Z’for his own protection. Its time that the future leaders of this country stand up against this filthy PPP mess.


  8. This situation cannot be allowed to deteriorate further! The army and intellegence must act now!

    Pakistan Zindabad (LONG LIVE PAKISTAN)


  12. “india is trying to attempt more thermonuclear tests and on the other hand Americans are penetrating into Pakistan” (Ahmed Muneeb)

    Ahmed has got a point here … last time Pakistan conducted Nuclear tests america was “not happy” ..may be this time they have come to ensure that the same does not happen again?? ….

    ofcourse they will have more evil plans


  13. this author has the audacity to say ‘disastrous’ 8 years under musharraf? when there was not a single story of this nature? when we had not sold out our sovereignty to the NATO/ISAF forces? dr. mazari has also recently claimed that the government has allowed NATO/ISAF to establish a base inside pakistan. atleast president musharraf knew where to draw the line. the relationship was purely a strategic alliance, not a ‘buddy buddy’ kind it is now. anyone who thinks this all started with president musharraf needs to ask himself if he was so useful to the americans, why is he no longer president?


  14. So what is the solution? It seems that we are badly trapped with every one sold out to enemies.


  15. Invading and capturing are two very different things, as seen in Iraq. When the US invaded Iraq they faced hardly any resistance. But when the US announced it plans run Iraq trouble started. Of course lots of people will suffer, but in the long run US armed forces would face the same kind of trouble they faced in Iraq and eventually leave. It does not matter what our government does or does not do, it is up to the people of Pakistan to fight the enemy in the same way as the Iraqis did, making life for the coalition forces absolute hell, forcing them out.


    • Dear Jeddy,

      Why the hell we pay tax and a huge percentage of our budget is used for Defense purpose? Why the hell these PAK-ARMY was trained? Why the hell these Generals and Admirals are ranked to top seat? ——————- If we need to come out and fight with stupid american armies ………..!!!!!!

      I know there are pile of honest people in Army too but they can’t do anything because of the corrupt system enforced on them.


  16. jab tak doller lena band nahi karen gay yeh hota rahey ga.patta nahi kiyani kiya kar raha hai.sab moun mein chousiniii daal kay batay howa hain.opposition naaam ki tu koi cheze nazar hi nahi aah rahiii.


  17. lets go to islamabad we all know what we have to do.


  18. Thank GOD the Americans are here, somebody needs to clean out the Barbarians and Jahils that live in our society, that go around cutting throats of people.

    Also since our Jahil nation got rid of President Musharaf, the only decent, non corrupt and visionary leader of present time …….. they deserve a kick in the ass for supporting individuals like Zardari and Nawash Sharif.

    Pakistan Ka Allah Hi Hafiz


    • How old are you faruk??


  19. Fully Boycott all american products

  20. excuse me but if it wasnt for musharraf we would never have been in this mess. America didnt want musharraf because he was getting old, and in the end, he was still an audacious dheet army man who had a little patriotism. Now they hired dogs to sit in parliament and wag their tails and fetch. But please dont say Musharraf had nothing to do with it, he was the one who got this disastrous ball rolling.


  21. Yes. We must drink zam zam cola only!
