Carnage in Islamabad – Why?

Recently there have been airstrikes indiscriminately in various places in Pakistan. Many lives of innocent people is lost by America’s President Bush’s policy of so-called ‘war on terror’

I copy an article from Information Clearing House, by Stop The War Coalition:

George Bush Desperate for “Trophy Strike”

By StopTheWarCoalition

18/09/08 “StopTheWarCoalition” — – George Bush has signed a secret order allowing US troops to operate in Pakistan, without permission from the Pakistani government or agreement by the United Nations, contravening numerous international laws and conventions. Bush says the recent ground assault by US commandos and the big increase in the number of US missiles fired from unmanned aircraft are directed at al-Qaeda leaders, but the Pakistani government and local observers say that most of the dozens killed in these attacks have been civilians, the majority of them women and children.
The Guardian newspaper suggests a different interpretation for these attacks: “Bush is thought to be in a desperate push for a trophy strike…before he leaves office.” No doubt part of the calculation is the hope that this will boost the electoral chances of John McCain in his campaign to succeed Bush as president.

Since 1945, American has bombed 25 countries round the world, killing many millions of people (some estimates put the figure as high as 20 million). But George Bush has a message for all the families grieving as a result of his contribution to this horrendous scale of mass slaughter. He recently expressed his sorrow, following the US attack in Afghanistan which killed 90 civilians: “I am a partner in your loss and that of the Afghan people.”

And, of course, all those grieving families will be comforted by an earlier Bush pronouncement: “America is a Nation with a mission — and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace — a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.”

Read on, another strategy that is used is by mysteriously getting weak states like Pakistan to play his tune and increase the list of abducting of innocent people. See:

My question is: Is this how Bush is ever going to win his ‘war on terror’ ?

Today is the International Day of Peace! A mockery of this.
