Pakistan Courts Must Prosecute American 'Killer' Raymond Davis

 

"Why would a ruling hierarchy so subserviently enslave itself to Uncle Sam, as ours has, to the point that America's lords feel no compunction about making and demanding strict compliance with the wildest requests? Not even the third-rate leadership of a banana republic would so completely and cheaply sell its soul."

Raymond Davis, reportedly a member of the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad or U.S. Consulate in Lahore, is accussed of a double murder. Davis claims it was self-defense.

The story is out on the audacious U.S. bullying, blackmail and behind-the-scenes coercion of the Islamabad hierarchy into letting off American murderer and staffer Raymond Davis, who shot two Pakistani citizens to death in Lahore. America's terse message to the Pakistan establishment is "release him at once or face a chill on all bilateral contacts."

 

[Editor's Note: According to the Christian Science Monitor, The U.S. insists the American, Raymond Davis, enjoys diplomatic immunity and has been wrongfully detained since he allegedly shot two motorcyclists tailing him in Lahore on Jan. 27. The Pakistani press reports that the two men Davis is charged with killing were actually agents of Pakistanís intelligence service, ISI, who were assigned to tail Davis.]

 

Our American lords show no concern that Raymond's case is now in the domain of the courts. They have no patience for due process, which could see the American slayerís release if it's shown that he does indeed enjoy diplomatic immunity. They aren't even troubled in heart or conscience over the sad demise of the widow of one of those Davis killed, who took her life in grief and dejection. Nor do they seem perturbed by the death of another Pakistani citizen under the wheels of a recklessly-driven vehicle, which was part of Davis' American rescue party and was being driven on the wrong side of the road. Diplomatic immunity or not - they just want their murderer back. Thatís that.

 

But isnít this a sorrow of our own making? Why would a ruling hierarchy so subserviently enslave itself to Uncle Sam, as ours has, to the point that America's lords feel no compunction about making and demanding strict compliance with the wildest requests? Not even the third-rate leadership of a banana republic would so completely and cheaply sell its soul as. The embrace of America's lords has proven deadly. Yet our leaders do it again and again to the great disgrace and woe of our people and the colossal cost to our solidarity and cohesion as a nation. Furthermore, this "embrace" has caused incalculable harm to our stateís security and stability.

 

Craving international legitimacy for his illegitimate rule, a desperate General Zia-ul-Haq didnít hesitate for a moment to sell out our unfortunate nation to Uncle Sam, so Washington could settle scores with the Soviet invaders of Afghanistan. This "uncle" avenged the humiliation that the U.S. invaders had suffered at Soviet-backed hands in Vietnam. But without even a word of thanks, it left us the troublesome child of religious stridency, an injurious gun culture, drug trafficking and addiction.

 

The embrace of Pervez Musharraf turned out to be yet more fatal to our nation and state. To perpetuate his illegitimate rule, he sold us out both more cheaply and ignobly. He let Americans make a virtual colony of Pakistan, giving them free reign to ply their devilish trade. They knew of no law in our land, and were a law unto themselves. They were the masters - and the natives their slaves. And while the nation struggled to remove the poisonous harvest of Ziaís embrace, Musharrafís added yet more inflammable fuel to the pile.

 

 

American masters infested our tribal regions and even deeply settled in some places, attracting proxies laden with money, weapons and the equipment of war to challenge the authority of our own state and to the great grief to relations with nearby countries, harboring alien dissidents to create subversion in our neighbors. As if that wasn't enough, our incumbent hierarchs' embrace of this is part of a larger picture, yet more slavish, more demeaning, and more ruinous to our people. ††

Not only has this trashed whatever bit of sovereignty the nation had left after the hugs of Zia and Musharraf, it has left the lives, honor and dignity of our people to the mercies of Uncle Sam's creatures. When from top to bottom, Islamabad leaders, rather than bemoaning the demise of our innocent compatriots in U.S. drone strikes, they fretfully counsel our American lords to end such attacks because they exacerbate anti-American sentiment, what else can one expect?

 

So it is American interests rather than the lives and blood of our own people that are uppermost in the minds of our hierarchs. And while Americans are calculatedly keeping quiet about the killers of the third murder victim in Lahore, who may have been spirited safely back to his homeland, Pakistan leaders are too conveniently and collusively silent, and so are the Lahore fortís keepers. Although curiously enough, the disinterest in the story of these wretched dead by our mediaís ďaceĒ investigative journalists is deafening.

 

Yet our leaders must know - power comes from their own people, not from aliens. Aliens are indeed always the first to jump from a sinking ship. The Tunisian and Egyptian episodes alone should tell them all they need to know. They must rethink their act. Standing by their own people will bring benefits to them. Betraying their people will cost them dearly. In this grisly murder case, they must let the law take its course.
