I wrote this last July... just thought I'd bump it too the top again seeing what is going on wrt Pakistan:
Pakistan, Afghanistan and Mr. Negroponte
Last year when John Negroponte visited both Afghanistan and Pakistan, my first thought was: Here come the 'death' squads! Expect to see increased violence and roadside bombings, kidnappings and general mayhem! (Afterall that is this gent's forte and history supports this - for both the role he played in Central America and Iraq).
It seems that whenever this POS shows up - civil unrest and 'group' violence escalates - thus resulting in the action which the occupier (the US) had wanted but couldn't quite justify without some kind of 'organised terror group'.
We've seen this all before - it's a wonder that so many don't recognize it for what it is: controlled incitement and invention of an enemy.
Here is a sampling of various articles dealing with Negroponte's visit to both Afghanistan and Pakistan. Make of it what you will - but keep in mind this POS's track record.
And for those here too young to recall, here is a recap of google hits dealing with this 'human's' (and I use that term loosely) history.
Recall, it wasn't long after Negroponte left Pakistan that Bhutto was assassinated. How nice. How coinicidental.. I think not.
