`Engineered Revolution

October 05, 2011

US {United States} and NATO {North Atlantic Treaty Organization} create social and ethnic divisions by supporting liberation armies/separatist groups to collapse national structure thus, destabilize governments. To sustain its covert programs, Washington increases its support to the rebels. CIA {Central Intelligence Agency} funded Libyan Rebels with cash and weapons.

The agency recruited over 1,500 men from Mazar-e-Sharif [Afghanistan] for fighting against the Qaddafi forces in Libya. Most of the men have been recruited from Afghanistan. They are Uzbeks, Persians and Hazaras. (Azhar Masood, The Nation, August 2011).

From Washington’s viewpoint, Afghanistan and Pakistan are hubs, politically and geographically - they have been using the hubs for secret intelligence operations; there are several US military bases in these countries.

In Balochistan (Pakistan), British intelligence (Secret Intelligence Service (SIS)/MI6) is blamed for providing support to liberation army. “In June 2006, Pakistan's Senate Committee on Defense questioned British intelligence about their involvement in abetting the insurgency in the province (Balochistan) bordering Iran” (Press Trust of India, August 09, 2006). Same kind of intelligence operations by the West have been carried out in other countries they named, developing world.

From the activities of West, it seems the idea is to politically fracture Pakistan and Iran (through province Sistan-va-Baluchestan) using Baloch nationalism. “Tehran charges that US Special Forces units are using bases in Pakistan for undercover operations inside Iran designed to foment Baluch opposition to the regime of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad” (Selig S Harrison, Pakistan’s Baluch insurgency, October 2006).

In late March [2011], NATO started air strikes - an intervention to aid rebels. To overthrow Qaddafi’s regime, UK and France led the campaign.

Sources in Quetta [Pakistan] said: “Some Uzbeks and Hazaras from Afghanistan were arrested in Balochistan for illegally traveling into Pakistan en route to Libya through Iran. According to Aljazeera most of the men who intruded inside Pakistan from Afghanistan were recruits for Libyan Rebels’ Force. More than 100 illegal immigrants were discovered 20km from the border town of Quetta [Pakistan] last week inside the container, which had been locked from the outside (Azhar Masood, The Nation, August 2011).

In a report the New York Mayor’s TV Channel Bloomberg said, Leaders of the Libyan rebels’ TNC {Transitional National Council} flew to Istanbul [Turkey] seeking legitimacy and money. They will leave with the official recognition of the US and 31 other nations, as for the cash, they will have to wait.

The decision to treat the council as the “legitimate governing authority” in Libya is a key step to freeing up some of the government’s frozen assets for rebels seeking the ouster of Muammar Qaddafi. Still, obstacles such as existing United Nations sanctions won’t disappear overnight (Azhar Masood, The Nation, August 2011).

According to a Treasury official who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, US officials will consult with the TNC and international partners on the most effective and appropriate method of making additional significant financial assistance available.

Western powers are dominant in global financial system and for collective strategic interests - they stimulate political and socio-ethnic conflicts to bring the economy of a country to the ground. An environment is created to portray that for economic stability the country requires assistance from international financial community.

US Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton) said, “We still have to work through various legal issues, but we expect this recognition will allow the TNC to access various forms of funding…”

By the global intervention, (democratic) principles are ruined and institutions destroyed – resulting in weak (autonomous) processes. Hence, country’s development strategy is determined by the bureaucratic global institutions; different regimes make several policies, which are actually based on the framework set by those institutions.

Recognition may lawfully allow nations to buy state-owned oil from the TNC, which controls the oil-rich eastern part of the country. Italy’s Eni SpA and France’s Total SA are the top oil companies operating in Libya, a former Italian colony (Azhar Masood, The Nation, August 2011).

In Muslim countries, West intervene in their state affairs because of their interest in natural resources of the region. By keeping the local government in dark, multinationals conduct operations to grasp potentially valuable areas of a country.

The imposition of their (economic) reforms is interlinked with their covert operations - from organizing military coups to supporting paramilitary armies for civil wars sponsored by US and NATO. Their goal is to create social divisions, weaken the ability to resist the invasion by splitting national structure and initiate civil war. Through war, they manage ownership over the oil and gas resources of the region.

A number of actions by the rebels convinced the US to offer recognition, including a commitment to pursue a reform process, and to seek more inclusive representation of Libyans, politically, geographically and tribally, according to a State Department officially.

Through legal framework they implement the reforms and takes a country to industrial decline; their programs play significant role in creating foundation for puppet leadership and in determining the shape of a society and its class structure.
