Biden Regime Coup Ousts Pakistan's PM Khan

by Stephen Lendman

By a rigged made-in-the-USA no confidence vote on Saturday, Imran Khan was ousted as Pakistan's Prime Minister.

What happened was all about Khan's refusal to sell his soul and nation to a higher power in Washington.

It was about serving the interests of his country over foreign ones.

It was about refusing to take sides on what's going on in Ukraine.

It was about not bowing and scraping to the self-styled indispensable state (sic).

It was about keeping Pakistan free from vassalage to any foreign power.

A previous day article discussed events leading to Saturday's vote by Pakistan's MPs to replace Khan with a pro-Western puppet.

Ahead of the vote, speaker of Pakistan's lower House National Assembly, Asad Qaiser, resigned, saying:

He "cannot participate in a foreign conspiracy to remove Khan."

Commenting on the Biden regime's coup, Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the following:

"The way the situation has proceeded to develop leaves no doubt that (hegemon USA) decided to punish Imran Khan for disobedience." 

"A group of deputies from (his) party suddenly defected to the opposition and parliament immediately submitted the question of a vote of no-confidence."

During his Feb. 23 and 24 Moscow visit, Biden regime hardliners exerted "rude pressure" on Khan to return home straightaway.

While in Moscow, US assistant secretary of state for south and central Asian affairs, Donald Lu, met with Pakistan's US envoy Asad Majeed.

He "demanded that (Khan's) visit be immediately interrupted, (what Majeed) rejected," Zakharova explained, adding:

Lu later warned Majeed of "consequences" if Khan survived a no-confidence vote.

He slammed Lu for "threatening" him by letter, calling it a "foreign conspiracy" to oust him.

Meeting with Pakistan's top political and military officials, Khan presented evidence of the Biden regime's "conspiracy" to remove him from office.

On national television Friday evening, Khan stressed the following to Pakistanis:

"Your future is at stake." 

"If you do not take a stand to protect the sovereignty of our country, we will continue to remain subservient."

"The nation has to rise together to save Pakistan."

Turning truth on its head last week, Lu said the US "respect(s) and support(s) Pakistan's constitutional process and the rule of law (sic)."

As long US interests are served first and foremost over all others, he left unexplained.

Author, historian, former State Department official-turned sharp critic of Washington's destructive imperial agenda, William Blum, once explained that hegemon USA's policies are much "worse than you imagine," stressing:

"If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy (throughout) the past century, this is what crawls out: invasions, bombings, (subversion), overthrowing governments, suppressing (popular) movements for social change, assassinating political leaders, perverting elections, manipulating labor unions, manufacturing 'news,' death squads, torture, (chemical), biological (and nuclear) warfare, (radiological contamination), drug trafficking, mercenaries," police state repression, and endless wars on humanity.

That's what the scourge of imperialism is all about.

Raped and destroyed nations, millions of corpses, cities turned to smoldering rubble, and replacing one independent government after another with pro-Western puppet rule by brute force or other means explains how the diabolical US drive for hegemony works.

Its rage to control planet earth, its resources and populations risks destruction of its life forms.

Waging war on multiple fronts at home and abroad, humanity may not survive the onslaught.

A Final Comment

Here's how NYT infowar propaganda rubbish explained Khan's ouster by a made-in-the-USA no confidence vote, saying:

Saying opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif most likely will replace Khan, the Times failed to explain that he'll serve as subservient puppet to US interests, notably on all things geopolitical.

Falsely calling Khan "polarizing…over-promising, backing incoherent…contradictory policies, (and) clamp(ing) down on dissent" is typical of how the Times invents reasons to bash foreign leaders — ones unwilling to bow and scrape to hegemon USA.

Saying he's Pakistan's first prime minister "to be removed in a no-confidence vote" failed to explain that it was made-in-the-USA — by Biden regime pressure, bullying threats and bribes.

Note: In response to clear evidence of US dirty hands all over Khan's ouster — a coup by any other name — deputy state department spokeswoman Porter turned reality on its head, falsely saying:

There's "absolutely no truth to" accusations of US responsibility for Saturday's no-confidence vote (sic)."
