It sends the required signals to the HBC. I don't like HCB.
HBC is more accurate Hillary Ben**D Clinton.
Now I get her trip to Mota Bhai big fat wedding was to tie up these loose ends.
On the question of HCB-- we can call it by whatever name-- but I think it would be reductionist (and a mistake) to attribute any of it to one individual, like Hillary Clinton. She definitely served its agenda but she was only one agent and she is now almost entirely out of the picture.
It is worth doing a trace-back from her to get an idea of what's really behind this. It's not merely "globalization" or "deep state". I believe it is a specific cabal that is administered largely out of Qatar (the holdout in the GCC) and ultimately masterminded from the UK. It operates much more quietly than the other axes trying to dominate West Asia, and in much more subtle ways. Its chosen proxies are the Qutbists (remember the Huma Abedin-Mohammed Morsi connection). It would also very, very much like to bring Pakistan into its fold.
Its facade is the Thani dynasty of Yemen... Clintons were to Thanis what Bushes (and now Trumps) are to the House of Saud.
But the Thanis themselves have neither the clout nor the agency to be the masterminds. Neither do the Clintons.
That, I believe, is Westminister's last hurrah. A thorough analysis of Qatar's investments in London financial markets would give a clearer picture. But there is no doubt that the centrepiece of Qatar's "soft power", Al Jazeera, is a British creation... many board members, operational directors, know-how experts and others who shape its editorial content are former-BBC, former-Guardian etc.
So to sum up, four different factions in West Asia:1) MBS/MBZ (KSA and UAE).
Trump and Israel are solidly with them for now. Increasingly, so is Al-Sisi's regime in Egypt. These are the "glowing orb" guys. Their main objectives are (a) tightly leash Wahhabist threats so that they are useful as tools but never threaten royal-house regimes (b) utterly crush the Muslim Brotherhood/Qutbists who are more politically sophisticated Islamists (c) contain or destroy Iran.2) Iran, Syria, Lebanon (the Shi'as) with Shia-dominated Baghdad government, PMUs, and Hezbollah on their side.
Russia and China have decided to back this horse as USA under Trump decided to back MBS/MBZ.3) The Shadow Quadrant:
The face of which is Qatar, but the background of which is deliberately kept obscure. Clintons were agents of this faction. They prefer soft power (propaganda, colour revolutions etc.) and financial maneuvering to kinetic force (for the time being). Their first overt grab at hard power was trying to install Mohammed Morsi (MB) as Egypt's leader following the "Arab Spring". They were the ones who aggravated the "Arab Spring" in the first place and instigated the Syria war (MBS/MBZ were at first aligned with the "remove Assad" agenda, but now seem to care less about Syria than about Iran directly and Yemen). Being a UK-led grouping they presumably put much more stock in the utility of Pakistan than Factions 1 or 2. They would like to "rehabilitate" Pakistan as a useful tool and supplier of Kinetic power (very much in line with British "Martial Race" theories and their Caroe-vian corollaries).4) Turkey, the "swing state"
... trying to maneuver a pole position for itself by aligning with different factions, but has maintained strategic independence and focuses on its core interests. Of all the 4 factions, Turkey is the most overtly pro-Pakistan (maybe because they want to bring Pakistan into their fold as the core of a new Istanbul-Islamabad axis). But that is a long shot.
Then there are various proxies/pawns: ISIS, Al-Nusra, Kurdish groups, Yemeni/Houthi groups, Horn of Africa groups, etc.
The question for now is will Pakistan be a Player, or will it be a Pawn? It is obviously in India's interest that it be a Pawn
because that way a lot of our work will get done by other greenies.
The Shadow Quadrant is of most concern to India because they are the most interventionist and least obvious in their moves. MBS/MBZ are relatively pro-India for now, and Iran may find itself leaning towards India as Pakistan allows itself to be used against them (and as US withdraws from Afghanistan). But the Shadow Quadrant is implacably anti-India, and has never resigned itself to the idea of Hindu self-determination, opposing Modi bitterly at every corner and from every angle (that's why I think the UK is ultimately the guiding hand behind it). Turkey is ultimately too preoccupied in its own backyard to be of any concern.
