People in Pakistan, who live near or around a known terrorist, or group of, are generally paid a fair amount of money NOT to know...they like the money. Easy to ignore the obvious.
I tend to think any story coming out of that community will be bitter sweet...sweet because they don’t have to deal with it anymore..bitter because revenues from keeping their mouths shut will stop.
Same for the military and gov. officials who knew. The US won’t be sending money for much longer....it paid them to keep him alive, and on the run in the pocketbooks of those gleening from it.
Except for that Islam thing.
Actually this would apply to all concern..
Pakistan is a mere ventriloquist’s lap dummy to larger power to the east, the Chinese People’s Republic. China has an unquenchable thirst for oil. The whole phony-baloney crux of the radical Islamic argument is calling for the removal of the west and the United States from the Persian Gulf as preceived “evil infidels”.
Of course I would bet a horse’s gait the same Chinese People’s Republic is NOT considered “infidel” status by those who are of the radical Islamic “movement”
EXTENSIVE READ... PLEASE PASS THIS POLITICAL “GREENBACK” ABOUT...WARNING EXTENSIVE READING, BUT SOMETHINGS NEED TO BE EXPLAINED AND VIEWPOINTED, FOLKS!!
A review of the past and during the “cold war” of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and somewhat the 1980s, Pakistan as we know it today was always allied to the People’s Republic of China. Neighboring India would be allied to the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. (USSR) This would be the senario of geo-world politics as we would know it.
The former East Pakistan is known as Bangladesh, today. Bangladesh and or East Pakistan, being a Hindu oriented nation would be aligned to neighboring Hindu, India during the time of the “cold war”. Pakistan as it is known today, formally was known as West Pakistan during the “cold ward”. West Pakistan and or Pakistan, naturally is an Islamic oriented nation.
a) During the invasion of Afghanistan by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, (USSR) the ultimate desire of the USSR would be geo-political influence and dominace into Afghanistan as a stepping stone.
Later the influence and domination would be into today’s Pakistan and later into a warm weather port area of Southern Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Behrain, United Arab Emirates, Yeman, Oman and other shiekdom republics which would concern itself with the world’s energy supplies. The USSR at the time would be in need of a warm weather shipping port and the same need for much needed oil and the world’s oil supply.
Osama bin Laden and the Afghanistani “freedom fighters of the 1980s would serve as a counter-weight and opposition to stop the Soviet encroachment of this area and takeover eventually.
b(Meanwhile, the People’s Republic of China position would be aligned, almost to that of the resistance to Soviet encroachment and domination of the areas as indicated and written. Of course both the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the People’s Republic of China would be communist as nations. But there would be a split between the two communist giants concerning the situation at hand.
c) Please fast forward as of today. The People’s Republic of China’s drive for oil and the need for oil because of its fast growing economy may have an acute interest within this same area of the Middle-East. It is well established, the People’s Republic of China may well be addicted to oil as a growing nation of today. Thus, the former alliance of China and Pakistan may be reformulating to these times of the 21st century. The former alliance during the “cold war” would break apart at the time, somewhat. Alliances for political, military and economic can reformulate often times during the course of international relations.
The question remains, Is the United States & the People’s Republic of China advancing into an international showdown over this same area of the Middle-East over the world supply of energy?
IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION & QUESTION!!!
Is the same People’s Republic China financing and “bankrolling” Islamic extremist and the cause of Osama bin Laden’s terrorist operations of Al-Qeada and other Middle-Eastern terrorist groups. This backing surely will be a political tool to rid the Middle-East of United States influence over the world’s energy supplies and other political influence.
Please consider the historical prospective of this thesis and question. If you wish, pass this about to other websites, talk radio media and other forums of discussion. International relations and geo-political alliances can be interesting. Alliances formulate, disolve and sometimes reformulate oftentimes.
Again, this posting is EXTENSIVE as international relations can be that.
