US and Pak Waging War of Terror Against Iran

If one country wants to recruit another country to wage war of terror against a third country - that country would recruit a country with expertise in sponsoring terrorism for decades. And it helps that terror sponsorer is a neighbour of the third country.

Which country does US recruit to wage war of terror against Iran? Terror expert and easterly neighbour Pakistan, of course.

Despite continued effort by western media bending over backwards to clear Pakistan of terrorism in India and all the hoopla about Dick Cheney's apparent warning to Gen Musharraf about his support to Taliban and doing nothing about al Qaeda, US has recruited Pakistan to wage another war of terror on its western boundary with Iran. And it has been going on for at least two years.

Brian Ross, of ABC News, reports that Dick Cheney was actually conferring with Gen. Musharraf about undermining Iran by supporting Iran's minority, presumably Sunni groups, and encouraging those groups to rebel against majority Shiite Iran. It is entirely possible Saudi Arabia is in on this, despite its recent rhetoric against US about the illegality of Iraq war at the Arab League Summit.

A Pakistani tribal militant group responsible for a series of deadly guerrilla raids inside Iran has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials since 2005, U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News.

The group, called Jundullah, is made up of members of the Baluchi tribe and operates out of the Baluchistan province in Pakistan, just across the border from Iran.

It has taken responsibility for the deaths and kidnappings of more than a dozen Iranian soldiers and officials.

Jundullah has produced its own videos showing Iranian soldiers and border guards it says it has captured and brought back to Pakistan.

The leader, Regi, claims to have personally executed some of the Iranians.

Last month, Iranian state television broadcast what it said were confessions by those responsible for the bus attack.

They reportedly admitted to being members of Jundullah and said they had been trained for the mission at a secret location in Pakistan.

The Iranian TV broadcast is interspersed with the logo of the CIA, which the broadcast blamed for the plot.

A CIA spokesperson said "the account of alleged CIA action is false" and reiterated that the U.S. provides no funding of the Jundullah group.

Pakistani government sources say the secret campaign against Iran by Jundullah was on the agenda when Vice President Dick Cheney met with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in February. [ABC News]


Earlier Gudem posted about the realignment in West Asia along the Sunni and Shia divide in overt, US State Department driven, strategy. Now apparently there is a covert strategy to destabilize Iran's Shiite regime. Pakistan, with it's more than two decades of terror experience in India, is an ideal candid to get the ball rolling for the latest American grand plan.
