I read that article and decided to share it with you. I hope you will find it a worth read.
we used to the tensions, conflicts, terror and wars in the Pakistan area. I think most of us do not really know why is so any more. and I think it is
time to remind who is standing behind and why the war did not and will not end.

"Knowing and promoting one thing and writing something else to deceive public
May 11th, 2009
This is how propaganda goes. The promoters of the war of terrorism know and promote one thing and write quite the opposite. See this article
Pakistan’s ethnic fault line by By Selig S. Harrison in Washington Post, May 11, 2009. S. Harrison writes:
To American eyes the struggle raging in Pakistan with the Taliban is about religious fanaticism. But in Pakistan it is about an explosive fusion
of Islamist zeal and simmering ethnic tensions that have been exacerbated by U.S. pressures for military action against the Taliban and its al-Qaeda
allies. Understanding the ethnic dimension of the conflict is the key to a successful strategy for separating the Taliban from al-Qaeda and
stabilizing multiethnic Pakistan politically.
The reality is that it is the propagandists like S. Harrison who made the struggle an issue of religious fanaticism in the first place. The
propagandists as well as the warlords they promote and serve fully know that this crisis is of their own making. The labels are their own creation.
The ethnic tensions were deliberately, cunningly and systematically developed by targeting the tribal pashtuns in the name of bombing and eliminating
Taliban. When they resisted, everyone of them was labeled as Taliban and at the same time terrorists were inducted from outside so that no peace deal
could last between the invading army and the helpless victims of their aggression. The lies about the existence of Alqaeda are used to seamlessly
stitch together different pieces of lies and deceptions. harrison writes that “understanding the ethnic dimension of the conflict is the key to a
successful strategy….” In fact, there is no strategy in the waiting. This dimension has already been fully understood and exploited for inflaming
the war within Pakistan. Only fools would believe that the objective is to “separate Taliban from Al-Qaida and stabilizing Pakistan politically.”
What does separation mean? If your stated goal is elimination of the bogey monster, a realistic strategy will be to go for the kill and let God sort
them out. This show of compassion for the Pakistan’s existence exposes the malicious intentions.
Harrison goes on to write:
"The Pakistani army is composed mostly of Punjabis. The Taliban is entirely Pashtun. For centuries, Pashtuns living in the mountainous borderlands of
Pakistan and Afghanistan have fought to keep out invading Punjabi plainsmen. So sending Punjabi soldiers into Pashtun territory to fight jihadists
pushes the country ever closer to an ethnically defined civil war, strengthening Pashtun sentiment for an independent “Pashtunistan” that would
embrace 41 million people in big chunks of Pakistan and Afghanistan."
“The Pakistani army is composed mostly of Punjabis.” Do you believe this is news or a top classified secret that this person is now revealing to
help the US develop a strategy. This is what has already been fully exploited by forcing the Pakistani forces to invade Pashtun areas. Bombing Pashtun
villages and telling Musharraf to accept responsibility for the resulting massacres. And that long-term Zionist stooge will come on TV and accept the
responsibility for the massacre of young children by the US forces. That was an effective way to put Pashtun against Punjabis.
“For centuries, Pashtuns living in the mountainous borderlands of Pakistan and Afghanistan have fought to keep out invading Punjabi plainsmen.”
And the US forced the Punjabi dominated army to do exactly the same in the name of taking out “high value targets” which are not coming to an end
in the past 7 years. So, know full well the consequences, the US forced Pakistan to send army into the tribal areas under the pretext of fighting
The warlords knew that if “jihadists” are not there, the aggression will naturally produce resistance which will be labeled as jihadists and help
perpetuating the crisis. The more you read this article, the more you will understand that this author is describing the strategy which they already
promoted and which the warlords have successfully implemented. These write-ups are show pieces to spread new lies and deceptions by continuing to mix
truth with falsehood for the next phases in the war.
Harrison sums up the propaganda pieces with quotes from two sold-out souls. The last para of his article gives an indication of what is going to
happened and also shows how they have made sure it happens that way:
" In the conventional wisdom, either Islamist or Pashtun identity will eventually triumph, but it is equally plausible that the result could be
what Pakistani ambassador to Washington Husain Haqqani has called an “Islamic Pashtunistan.” On March 1, 2007, Haqqani’s Pashtun predecessor as
ambassador, the retired Maj. Gen. Mahmud Ali Durrani, said at a seminar at the Pakistan Embassy, “I hope the Taliban and Pashtun nationalism don’t
merge. If that happens, we’ve had it, and we’re on the verge of that.”"
Did you notice from the events in Pakistan how religious sentiments have deliberately been mixed with nationalistic and ethnic sentiments. Use one
dominant group to kill another. Propagate the lies that the victims are terrorists, Islamists, Talibs. Pay others so that they could declare the
invaders of Pashtun villages and towns as Kafirs, that will automatically bring religious flavor to the conflict. Supports others from outside so that
their terrorist acts could be blamed on the non-existent al-Qaeda and tensions could never ease and the conflict escalates with each passing day.
This article describes exactly how the US proceeded in its war on Pakistan. It only needs a carefully eye to read the propaganda between the lines."
