In Pakistan, most people vote for secular, non-religious, political parties.
Yet, on 31 December 2010, we read that there has been a 24-hour strike across Pakistan to defend the crazy Islamic blasphemy laws.
Pakistan's Federal Law Minister, Babar Awan, told reporters that the strike was simply the latest attempt to revive a once powerful alliance of religious parties, the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal.
Many believe this group is "acting at the behest of the security establishment to undermine the country's political system." (Pakistan on blasphemy law strike BBC News)
So, certain spooks promoted the strike.
Pakistan's spy service ISI, the CIA and Saudi Arabia, have long promoted Islamic fundamentalism in the region.
President Zia ul Haq and Reagan
Pakistan is more about HEROIN than about Islamic extremism.
Some of the so called Islamists are in the heroin trade.
Alfred McCoy, Professor of Southeast Asian History at the University of Wisconsin, refers to "a very major syndicate connected with former president Zia ul-Haq of Pakistan". (Interview with Alfred McCoy - re Heroin and the CIA)
Zia ul-Haq was president of Pakistan from 1977–1988 and with the help of the CIA he tried to make Pakistan more Islamic.
And, Zia-ul-Haq and his pals made 'untold millions' from heroin. (Zia-ul-Haq made `untold millions' as a druglord: Book)

According to McCoy:
"In 1979 Pakistan had a small localized opium trade and produced no heroin whatsoever.
"Yet by 1981, according to U.S. Attorney General William French Smith, Pakistan had emerged as the world's leading supplier of heroin.
"It became the supplier of 60% of U.S. heroin supply and it captured a comparable section of the European market.,,
"By 1985, according to official Pakistan government statistics, Pakistan had 1.2 million heroin addicts, the largest heroin addict population in the world.
"Who were the manufacturers? They were all either military factions connected with Pakistan intelligence, CIA allies, or Afghan resistance groups connected with the CIA and Pakistan intelligence."
Pakistan is easy to exploit.
Pakistan has four groups - Punjabis, Pashtuns, Baluch, and Sindhis - and they are not a united bunch.
It looks like the USA wants to break up Pakistan.
1. Hugo Chavez once said, "The U.S. disposes of its allies like used condoms."
(quote from mostaqueali.blogspot.com/)
The US government appears to be involved in a campaign to break up Pakistan.
(PAKISTAN TO BE BROKEN UP?)
Pakistan has flirted with China.
The Military Industrial Complex feels it needs wars to ensure its survival.
(Pakistan and China versus Mossad, CIA, RAW and MI6)
The USA can call upon its friends, such as Saudi Arabia, to help break up Pakistan?
(Pakistan, Cricket, Mossad, Saudi Arabia, CIA)
Balochistan is to become 'independent' and is to used as a route for heroin?
2. Part of the US campaign appears to involve propaganda, such as presenting Pakistanis as barbarians.
Remember a video of a girl being flogged?
A top government official of Pakistan's Taliban-controlled Swat region has made the claim that the amateur video clip shown by television channels of a 17-year-old girl being flogged was fabricated. - Swat girl flogging video fake, official says
3. Part of the US campaign appears to involve false flag acts of terror, to destabilise Pakistan.
The US campaign seems to aim to set Punjabis against Pashtuns.
On 7 April 2009, a news report from the USA announced that "Pakistan could collapse within six months: US expert." - Pakistan could collapse within six months: report
The US expert is David Kilcullen.
David Kilcullen was a terrorism adviser to General David Petraeus in Iraq.
In Iraq, much of the 'terrorism' was allegedly the work of the USA, and was allegedly aimed at weakening and dividing opposition to US colonialism.
Kilcullen has been advising Petraeus in Afghanistan.
Many Pakistanis do not believe in the idea of al Qaeda being an Islamic group. Some see it as a CIA institution.
Osama stayed in an American hospital just before 9 11.
According to the New York Times, many Pakistanis have decided that reaching an accommodation with 'the militants' is preferable to fighting them.
Some, including mid-ranking soldiers, choose to see the militants not as the enemy, but as fellow Muslims who are deserving of greater sympathy than are the American aims, according to the New York Times.
4. Pakistan is in a weak position because, allegedly, Pakistan's 'corrupt' President Zardari takes orders from the USA.
And, allegedly, many of the top people in the Pakistan military and government are assets of the CIA. (The Mumbai Attacks and the Militaries of the USA, India and Pakistan)

5. What is the CIA-Pentagon plan?

On 3 December 2008, the bipartisan Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism reported that:
If there was a WMD attack on the United States, it would originate in Pakistan.
(WMD attack to originate in Pakistan: US report)
Acording to the report:
“Were one to map terrorism and weapons of mass destruction today, all roads would intersect in Pakistan."
The commission briefed President Bush and Vice President-elect Joe Biden, senior congressional leaders on 3 December 2008 and warned them “it is more likely than not that a weapon of mass destruction will be used in a terrorist attack somewhere in the world by the end of 2013”.
Allegedly, the CIA is preparing the world for a possible US attack on Pakistan by, allegedly, carrying out the following actions:
1. The assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December 2007
The death of Bhutto; Mossad and the CIA.
2. The toppling of Musharraf in August 2008
Musharraf toppled by CIA?
3. The attack against the Islamabad Marriott in September 2008
And various other Gladio-style terror attacks within Pakistan
Pakistan government and CIA behind Marriott blast?
4. The Mumbai Attacks of November 2008
The US commission report, of 3 December 2008 (WMD attack to originate in Pakistan: US report), noted that in October 2008, China agreed to build two nuclear power plants in Pakistan.
Pakistan by Steve Evans
“This deal — especially if it does not contain mechanisms to prevent nuclear material from being transferred from the new civilian plants to military facilities — signals a nascent nuclear arms race in Asia,” the commission warned.
“The risk of a WMD attack being planned and executed from Pakistan’s northwest frontier area is growing, as that area continues to function as a safe haven for Al Qaeda.”

Why the US Wants the Collapse of Pakistan (UNObserver & International Report)Excerpts:
1. There are secret US military bases with troop levels totalling, at present, a few thousand - and Punjab isn’t the only region that has US combat troops present.
2. Traditional mainstream media are being fed stories that underline the “need” for US intervention.
3. Scenarios are already being floated to carve up Pakistan into “Greater Baluchistan” (which is now Pakistan’s largest province) and some other new “states” in which to install puppet regimes.
4. The weakening or even collapse of the state of Pakistan will create a new battlefield badly needed by the White House.
The “War on Terror” (as the War on Islam is often termed), like most wars, needs expansion or it collapses.
