In the months since catastrophe first struck beleaguered Pakistan, one thing has become painfully clear: that the U.S.-led western industrial “democracies” are fully prepared to crassly ignore the desperate pleas of the Pakistani people.
When disaster struck Haiti at the beginning of this year, every country that could afford to generously offered some kind of assistance to the desperately impoverished Caribbean nation.
And in varying degrees and with the notable exception of the United States – the richest country in the world – almost all of these countries have at least partially honoured their lavish commitments.
In the case of the U.S., of course, the generosity that was promised was largely intended to prevent an influx into America of a large number of black, French-speaking refugees. That the United States already owes so much to Haiti is irrelevant.
But months after making its ostentatious promises, Amerikkka has delivered almost nothing.
That 1.3 million people were living in flimsy tents when the heavy rains arrived and that tens of thousands are now threatened by the deadly disease cholera seem to be of little import.
In the case of Pakistan, however, the role played by the U.S. and its so-called “allies” has been much more malicious and malevolent.
It was bad enough that Muslims, Arabs and “Pakis” are the new “Niggers” of the western world, now even more reviled than African-Americans in the dominant Amerikkkan culture.
Afraid to challentheir own econocorporate socioeconomic elite that is bleeding the world dry, ordinary Americans always need a scapegoat.
And what more perfect scapegoat could there be than a dirt-poor collectivity of faraway people whose skin is brown, whose religion is Islam and whose primary language is foreign!
To advance its so-called War On Terror, the NATO “alliance” has tried to depict hard-pressed and ungovernable Pakistan as the world’s key breeder of Islamic “terrorism.”
WRISEUP.COM’s readers, however, should keep in mind that many – if not most – of the “terrorist” plots either carried out or “foiled” in the western world in recent years have been false flag events carried out not by “Arab” or “Muslim” or “Paki” “terrorists” but by the CIA, CSIS, MI5 and other western so-called “intelligence” agencies.
Yet the U.S., even while denying Pakistan the most basic disaster assistance, remains ever ready to provide the country with weapons of war.
The corporate mass media in both the U.S. and Canada have tried to depict the problem as some sort of “compassion fatigue.”
But as evidenced by Haiti, the United States is the least compassionate and least generous industrialized country despite its vast population and extreme relative wealth.
Americans and Canadians should ignore the anti-Pakistan rhetoric and propaganda pumped out by the corporate mass media and the political whores in both the U.S. and Canada.
For while Amerikkka may be loathe to admit it, when a Pakistani bleeds, he or she is every bit as red-blooded as the most jingoistic, steroid-packed, tanned and toned white American “macho man.”
The desperation and the harsh deprivation prevalent in Pakistan are no less tragic and no less deserving of the entire world’s compassion and generosity than any whitebread Amerikkkan disaster would be.
