WASHINGTON: In a book that is likely to be released later this month, its author has startlingly revealed that the Bush Administration has firmed up plans to carry out an invasion of Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province (NWFP), which is seen as the command centre of the al-Qaeda terrorist network.
George Friedman, the founder and chairman of the well regarded news and analysis service, Stratfor, reveals in his book titled “America’s Secret War”, the ongoing, but hidden struggle between the United States and its enemies.
“The United States will threaten Iran with war if it aids the al-Qaeda. The United States will have to invade northwest Pakistan. There are plans for this already. In addition, if Pakistan collapses due to an invasion, the United States and India will have to jointly occupy Pakistan. The end game is Pakistan,” the Daily Times quotes Friedman as saying.
