Blackwater black ops behind Pakistan terror wave?

The Lahore High Court chief justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif served notice on Pakistan‘s Interior Ministry for not replying to a petition demanding full disclose on the activities of Blackwater in the country, and warned that if the interior secretary does not reply by Dec. 14 he could be prosecuted for contempt of court. Sharif also called for a detailed report from the Foreign Ministry on a request to search of the US embassy to recover illegal weapons. Hashim Shaukat Khan, president of Pakistan’s Watan Party, had filed the petition. His attorney, Barrister Zafarullah, said the day Blackwater stepped into Pakistan, terrorism and suicide attacks stepped up. He also alleged that illegal arms are being stored in the US embassy, which were being used for “sabotage acts” in the country. (Pakistan Daily Times, Dec. 5)

At least 40 were killed and scores injured Dec. 4 when a pair of suicide bombers stormed a crowded mosque in Rawalpindi during Friday prayers, joined by assailants who hurled grenades and sprayed gunfire among the worshipers. (WP, Dec. 5) Another three were killed in a blast at a KFC outlet in Peshawar. (BBC News, Dec. 5)

  1. More terror in Pakistan
    Two separate bomb attacks in Pakistan killed more than 40 and left over 100 injured Dec. 7. Ten people died when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a court house in Peshawar and at least 36 were killed in Lahore, when two near-simultaneous blasts ripped through the city’s busy Moon Market, several hours later. More than 400 people have been killed during a string of attacks mounted by Islamist militants in recent weeks. (BBC News, Dec. 7)

  2. Xe Services (aka Blackwater)
    Xe Services (aka Blackwater) is associated with assassinations, kidnapping, prostitution, tax evasion, gun running, weapons stockpiling, recruiting death squad paramilitary personnel from Latin America and defrauding US taxpayers.

    1. Yes, but…
      Are they really behind the suicide bombings? Can you pay someone enough to carry out a suicide bombing? Strikes us as improbable at best.

      1. Recruiting
        In a country like Pakistan, it would not be difficult to find a handful of illiterate individuals, and pose to them as if you were an Islamic movement and required suicide bombers (With ample money promised to their desperate families and misinformation about attaining paradise). All state spy agencies, like the Israeli Mossad (and even Pakistani ISI for that matter) have agents specially trained in local languages and customs, to infiltrate other countries and systems.

        The moon market bombings in Lahore, Pakistan do not have the typical ‘hallmarks’ of Islamist groups i.e. no suicide bomber, the bombs were discovered to have been remotely detonated and especially, no claim of responsibility, something that these groups crave and often brag about to cameras. Ultimately, the blast, which occurred in a market almost totally frequented by women and children, was meant to rally the anti-American public against the Islamist insurgency, which was previously gathering public support.

        Is it working? Well, classically it should….but in this case, it is not. As stated, this one did not have the typical hallmarks of a terror operation and the public rerealized this immediately.

        1. Conspiranoid inconsistency
          So the Moon Market blasts were Blackwater, but the suicide bombings were real Islamists. So in your view, Islamist militancy actually exists and isn’t just a “false flag” phenomenon? Good, slight progress.

          But there seems to be some inconsistency on the motives behind these supposed “false flag” ops. Is it to discredit the Islamists and to “rally the public” against the insurgency? Most conspiranoids seem to think the insurgency doesn’t exist and the end is to just create a pretext for US intervention. (Why the US would want or need to intervene if Pakistan were safely under control is never explained…)

          1. Terror outfits and militant
            Terror outfits and militant groups crave the limelight and always take responsibility for such attacks. Not a single militant group has accepted responsibility and ALL have categorically denied and decried this attack. It has all the hallmarks of a flase flah operation, the idea was to pit public sentiment against Islamic militants.

            Moreover, no suicide bombers were involved, the bombs that went off were planted.

            1. from “blah” to “flah”?
              “flase flah”?

              You still haven’t explained what the motive would be. How is it in US interests to make Pakistan even more ungovernable?

  3. More terror in Pakistan
    An apparent suicide bomber killed at least 10 after driving a car packed with explosives into a mosque during Friday prayers in the town of Taimergara in North West Frontier Province’s Lower Dir district. Lower Dir was one of three districts, along with Swat and Buner, where the Pakistani military carried out an offensive earlier this year to push out pro-Taliban fighters. Since that offensive, and a subsequent operation in South Waziristan, there has been been a surge in attacks on government and civilians targets in Pakistan’s northwest. The mosque hit in the attack was next to a local police headquarters. It’s the second attack in two weeks targeting a mosque used by Pakistan security forces. (AlJazeera, AP, Dec. 18)

  4. More terror in Pakistan
    A suicide attack at the Peshawar Press Club Dec. 22 left three dead: a police guard posted at the club, the club accountant, and a woman traveling in a rickshaw close to the club’s premises. Several others were wounded. Since the blast, many prominent Peshawar residents have visited the damaged Press Club to express solidarity with the targeted journalists. (Daily Times, Dec. 24)
