1. "THEY" plan it.
2. THEY set it up.
3.0 THEY light it off.
3.1 The rest is so many details.
3.2 They must have a raft of ways to neuter the net or bring it all down entirely. Shoot. It sounds like they plan for the serfs and slaves to do without electricity entirely . . . not just the net.
4. THEY think they'll be on top of the smoldering heap and transform it by the robotized remaining serfs and slaves into their utopian play ground.
5. THEY are exceedingly wrong on that score. They will only have 3.5-7 years of that gig . . . amidst God throwing them all manner of monkey wrenches into their schemes.
6. Also, the will only manage to reduce the population by about half instead of all but 200 million left. But given the amount of blood letting and flowing . . . few serfs and slaves will care to argue the bloody point.
The rest is details. . . . important details to the serfs and slaves but not to the puppet masters.
Pakistan's strategy to dominate Kashmir region by sending 'jehadi' since early 90s, and use these irregular troops to drive away Indian forces seems to have failed.
The reason of the failure lies in Pakistan's misunderstanding of the Indian State's power and options.
The considerable resources available to the Indian State meant that Pakistan could never back up irregular forces with heavy weapons, something needed to drive away Indian army. However a negative side effect for Pakistan is that India built up considerable infrastructure and logistics in Kashmir to deal with jehadi, so the Indian army is far more entrenched and well supplied now than ever.
The building of a railroad into Kashmir valley has put paid to any hope that Pakistan had to win Kashmir by irregular troops.
The political capital that Pakistan has invested in Kashmir is very dangerous for Pakistani State. It is time for Pakistan to move away from Kashmir issue. Pakistan tried and failed. It is important in life to accept failures and move on.
The center of political power in South Asia has always been Delhi (or close to it) for thousands of years. Islamabad cannot become the center, how hard Pakistan tries. There are historical and geographical reasons for it.
I fear that power elite of Pakistan is unable to let go Kashmir despite their failures. Delusion is always the reason for destruction of a State, when people accept lies as reality. Pakistan cannot win a war with India, no matter who Pakistan's ally is. I have been researching economic, demographic, and military factors for several years now, and my conclusion is that Pakistan is deluded in the belief that it can win a long term war with India.
Today's India is not the badly fragmented princely states that existed during Muslim conquest. The largest force that Muslims faced was a few thousand men when they swept over South Asia a few centuries back. Modern India has a regular military of 1.5M and another 1.5M paramilitary and armed police. Millions of other men can be drafted at short notice.

I appreciate your sentiments.
The issue at stake is how much Turkey/Saudi/Israel allow Iran to increase its sphere of influence.
The unexpected winner of US/Iraq wars is Iran. This war created conditions of shift of political power from Sunni to Shia, thus giving Iran land access to the highly volatile zone around Israel.
The tough sanctions on Iran are a part of containing Iran. However Iran is still able to export oil and China is the main buyer.
My conclusion is that USA is unable to do anything about China. China's power and influence has risen so much to put USA on the defensive.
