Will America’s New Fight With Pakistan Lead to World War III?
Kidney says: It appears that a third world war just might be over the horizon.
It’s important to understand the essential fact of life that history repeats. With this in mind, note that it took the second world war to get the entire international economy out of what had become known as the great depression.
Very recently, economist Paul Krugman suggested that a third world war might be what saves the economy at the end of the day. How anyone can suggest such is beyond comprehension. Rather than doing the right things like cutting spending and stopping the printing of fiat currency, leaders would rather drag us to our doom as the last “best” resort to salvaging the dire economic situation in which the world has fallen.
Tensions between America and Pakistan have been growing as of late- particularly due to the mess that had become of the supposed slaying of CIA operative, Osama Bin Laden. Bin Laden was apparently hiding out in Pakistan- and without permission by the Pakistanis, the U.S. stormed the compound wherein it was said that Bin Laden dwelled.
Just today, the U.S. and Pakistan came dangerously close to exchanging fire in what would inevitably be the start of a third world war if the two nuclear powers went at it with each other.
Is the establishment setting us up for war with Pakistan so as to get the third world war in which they have envisioned?
WASHINGTON/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – The United States and Pakistan inched closer to open confrontation on Thursday, the top U.S. military officer accusing Pakistan’s intelligence agency in the strongest terms yet of involvement in violence against U.S. targets in Afghanistan.
Admiral Mike Mullen called the Haqqani militant network a “veritable arm” of Pakistan’s powerful ISI intelligence service, which he said supported the group’s attack last week on the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, a blow to U.S. efforts to bring the Afghan war to a peaceful end.
Pakistan’s interior minister swiftly rejected the U.S. accusations of Islamabad’s links to the Haqqanis, one of the most feared insurgent groups operating in Afghanistan.
The minister, Rehman Malik, also warned against a unilateral U.S. ground attack on the Haqqanis, who are based in Pakistan’s ungoverned tribal territories.
“The Pakistan nation will not allow the boots on our ground, never. Our government is already cooperating with the U.S. … but they also must respect our sovereignty,” Malik said in an interview with Reuters.
