Further Proof of U.S. Dictate and Domination
September 23, 2006
On September 20, the Associated Press (AP) reported that President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan stated that the U.S. threatened to "bomb his country back to the Stone Age" shortly after the attack on the World Trade center in 2001.
In an interview with CBS-TV's "60 Minutes," Musharraf said the threat was delivered by Richard Armitage, then the deputy secretary of state, to Musharraf's intelligence director. "The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, 'Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,'" he said.
The Pakistan leader added that the message was delivered with demands that he turn over Pakistan's border posts and bases to the U.S. military. Many other demands "were ludicrous," he said, such as a demand that he suppress all public expressions of opposition to the U.S.
