Kiyani's sponsorship of this terrorist act makes eminent sense because the manufactured 'reality' is that "Al Qaeda" is DIFFERENT from "Pakistani Terrorism".
Time for some explanation to more recent entrants here. Only on BRF and a few places like that, is it understood that there is NO SUCH ENTITY AS 'AL QAEDA' - THE TERM IS AN INVENTION OF THE CIA.
It means "Root Directory of Al Computer". See The directory is of the mujaheddin who came to fight the Russians circa 1979, and passed through the ISI safe house around Peshawar b4 heading off into the Khyber Pass. The purpose of the Directory was to have a place to check, when relatives asked later if so-and-so had been seen. If someone went off from here and was not heard from again, it was assumed that the Russians had done another service to humanity.
The terrorism is clearly planned, organized, trained, and operated by the Pakistani establishment. The proper term for the part that ran the "irregulars" was called the Pakistan Army of Islam. As of 1999, the Big Chief of the Pak Army of Islam was General Mohammed Aziz, best buddy of Gen. Musharraf. The conversation published by Indian intelligence as the Kargil war began, was between Aziz in Pakistan and Mush in Beijing, and included the statement from Aziz:
Sir, we have the jehadis by the scruff of the neck. They will do what we tell them to do
This is the point. The "Kashmiri Mujaheddin", the "Taliban", the "Lashkar-e-Toiba", the "Jaish-e-Mohammed", the "Harkat ul Mujaheddin", are all offshoots of the "Pakistan Army of Islam". This is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pakistan Army.
So isn't the Pakistan Army supporting the Global Offensive Against Terrori (GOAT) by fighting the "terrorists" on the the Pakistan-Afghanistan border?
Yeah, to those who smoke the same hashish that the Paki Army exports.
The Pakistan Army's HQ has no compunction whatever in sending poor Pakistani pandus and soldiers and young officers to die fighting the Pakistan Army's other forces - the "Taliban" or vice versa. It's just a mercenary operation, the payment for both sides comes to Pakistan Army HQ.
So what does Kiyani lose by this operation? They will come out bleating:
Bakistan boor country! Victim oph Terrorism! Bliss to provides more baksheesh!
Meanwhile they damage India's business interests heavily, at time when FDI is under extreme stress due to the economic slowdown. Maybe now stupid westerners will say:
What's the difference between Karachi and Mumbai? Security is actually better in Karachi for western interests!
As for the attack on the Jewish family, that is to "prove" to the zero-watt Experts of Dupli City and Foggy Bottom that this is an "Al Qaeda" attack, since the Pakistani Military is all "Secular" - they drink Jack Daniels, after all!
