Pakistan develops Drone for its War on……Pakistan!
The Pakistani military-political leadership has developed its own missile-firing drone, which is being deployed against its own citizens! This dirty work was originally entrusted to American drones and American drone operators, operating under the guise of the so-called “War on Terror”. But now The Powers That Be have such faith in the Pakistani leadership’s ability to wage war against its own citizens that this task is being entrusted with them. There is even more to the story. A first person shooter released in late 2012 clearly predicted the emergence of lethal Pakistani drones.
The drone is called the Burraq. In Islamic theology, the Burraq is a horse/ride of archangel Gabriel, who delivered revelation from God to the Prophet of Islam. Why is this a contradiction? The Burraq was used to deliver a revelation of peace, not death by laser-guided missiles. Neither did it terrorize the countryside. But this is not the only contradiction. It is apparent that the Burraq will not be used in Afghanistan or countries bordering Pakistan. It’s real target are the staid Pakistani citizens of the North-West Frontier province of Pakistan.
When the partition of British India started unrolling in 1947, the level-headed leader of these people of the North-West Frontier province of Pakistan, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, urged his followers to avoid being party to it. When the majority-Hindu Congress party strangely agreed to partition, he was fairly upset, complaining “you have thrown us to the wolves.” Even after the partition was completed by the Powers That Be, he clung on the hope that his Pashtun province would not be merged with Pakistan. But Jinnah managed to win him over, assuring him that the Pakistani military would never intervene in his province.
But it looks like the “wolves” Ghaffar Khan was referring to are now running loose. Ghaffar Khan feared that his province would ultimately be dominated by Lahore, or by Punjabi Muslims if British India was partitioned.
The Punjabi Muslims of Central Pakistan, like their Sikh-Punjabi and Hindu-Punjabi counterparts, have a sad history of providing armed support and mercenary services to predatory foreign powers. Sikh-Punjabi regiments played a decisive role in rescuing the British Empire in India during the rebellion of 1857. Then there is the case of Sikh/Muslim/Hindu Punjabi soldiers fighting against the Ottoman Turks in World War I. In one shameful instance, Muslim Punjabi soldiers were used by the British to quell dissent when Jerusalem was captured from the Turks (Jerusalem is the third most sacred city of the Islamic religion).
The current war of the Punjab-based military-intelligence complex with the people of the North-West Frontier province began under the pretext of the so-called “War on Terror.” To quote,
The information was compiled by The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which estimates that there have been approximately 399 to 500 strikes to-date. The research group has found that around three thousand individuals have been killed by these drones, many of them innocent civilians. In Pakistan alone, 891 civilians have been killed by U.S. drones since 2004. When a college student recently attempted to write a tweet for every drone strike the US has carried out in the last decade, he gave up after 12 hours of constant tweeting, reaching only the year 2010, when the attacks expanded exponentially.
A visualization reveals that of all the people killed till 2014, less than 20% were alleged militants.
Was Pakistan’s Drone Militarization Predicted in a Popular 2012 American Videogame?
The Powers That Be are keen on perception management. Rather than suddenly roll out changes, they carefully feed the unsuspecting masses bits and pieces of what’s coming. This is done through Western media, movies, and now, video games. This helps preventing shock and rejection towards sudden changes.
In November 2012, a popular American first-person shooter franchise Call of Duty released Black Ops II.
Campaign Mission 5 is called “Fallen Angel” and takes place on May 29th 2025 in Lahore, Pakistan. You play David Mason, operative of JSOC Counter-Terrorist Force. And what exactly does “Fallen Angel” refer to? To quote Wikipedia,
A fallen angel is a wicked or rebellious angel that has been cast out of heaven. The term “fallen angel” does not appear in the Bible, but it is used of angels who sinned (such as those referred to in 2 Peter 2:4, “For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment …”), of angels cast down to the earth in the War in Heaven, of Satan, demons, or of certain Watchers. The term has become popular in fictional literature regarding angels.
So our Burraq is now Satan? The Powers That Be do have a sense of humour. Maybe Malala would have been a better name for the drone.
Well anyway, the walkthrough of Campaign Mission 5 can be viewed online here.
This chapter opens with you in Lahore, fighting a gun battle with Pakistani Intelligence. This is quite odd, because the citizenry of Lahore as well as Pakistani Intelligence are more or less complacent with American involvement in the region. But again, they may have outlived their usefulness by 2025.
