US seeks to divide Pakistan through drones, Afghan war: Analyst



An American political analyst says Washington is seeking to divide Pakistan through its use of assassination drones and continued military presence in the neighboring Afghanistan, Press TV reports.

In an interview with Press TV, author and historian Webster Tarpley said the use of US-led assassination drones in Pakistan and the ongoing war in Afghanistan, are both part of Washington's policy to eventually break up states "big enough to defend themselves." 

The comments come days after former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf admitted to having allowed the US to carry out drone strikes in his country. 

Tarpley said the drones are a major factor dividing the people in Pakistan because those "in the areas that are hit by the drones feel that the central government in Pakistan has betrayed them by allowing these things to go on, which of course is what they have done." 

"So, part of the strategy [of assassination drones] has nothing to do with the alleged killing of terrorists, but it has to do with trying to break up Pakistan, which was the main purpose of the US presence in Afghanistan from the very beginning," he added.

The analyst further stated that US officials have tried to export the civil war in Afghanistan into Pakistan and divide Pashtuns, Baluchis, Punjabis, Shins, and "other groups like [those in] the Waziristan and [other] tribal areas." 

As a result, Pakistan and Afghanistan continue to accuse each other of supporting militants and contributing to the violence in the region. 

"Sudan is divided into two parts and Iraq ... has been divided into three parts, Serbia has been carved and other countries are in the process of being broken. Libya may end up broken at the end of this and Syria may end up broken. So, the ultimate US policy is the destruction of the nations' state." 

Washington uses its assassination drones in a number of countries, claiming to target terrorists. However, the attacks have mostly led to massive civilian casualties.

Pakistani firm whose chemicals were used to kill US troops seeks subsidy for Indiana plant

By Jennifer Griffin, Justin Fishel
Published March 22, 2013


A Pakistani fertilizer maker whose chemicals have been used in 80 percent of the roadside bombs that have killed and maimed American troops in Afghanistan is now seeking U.S. taxpayer subsidies in order to open a factory in Indiana. 
The request appears to be on hold pending further review, but the situation has stirred outrage in Congress, where some accuse the Pakistani government of halting efforts to clamp down on the bomb-making. 
For the past seven years, the U.S. government has known that the raw material calcium ammonium nitrate, or CAN, is making its way across the border into Afghanistan where the Taliban use it to fuel their most deadly weapons, namely the improvised explosive device. IEDs have long been the number one killer of U.S. and coalition troops. 
The material largely comes from Pakistani fertilizer maker the Fatima Group. But the Pakistani government has stymied attempts by the Pentagon to stop the flow of the…
