In an article in the Saudi English daily The Saudi Gazette, Md. Maqdoom Mohiuddin and Khamis Mushayt wrote an op-ed and book review which exposes an alleged U.S. plot to invade Pakistan, and then later possibly Sudan, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Turkey. The following is the article: [1]

" Sir George Friedman, the author of the book ' America's Secret War,' which is going to be released this month, revealed that the Bush administration is set to invade Pakistan and divide it.

"The original plan is to invade Pakistan and occupy the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and Balochistan. It would seek India's help and allow India to annex Punjab, Sindh, and part of Kashmir under Pakistan rule.

"There have been rumors about a possible invasion of Pakistan but this is the first time this strategy of the U.S. is exposed. This is a very dangerous plan which will have unimaginable severe consequences and will put the survival of the world at stake.

"There is no doubt that the U.S. is the biggest enemy of Islam and the Muslims. It utilized Pakistan to bring down the former USSR, helped Pakistan form the Taliban and help the Taliban to come to power in Afghanistan. But when Afghanistan refused to allow passage of an oil pipeline it declared the Taleban as terrorists and, after 9/ll, attacked Afghanistan.

"After the destruction of Afghanistan, it sought the help of Pakistan through intimidation. Now it is not only trying to destabilize Pakistan but is also bent on dividing it. This is the worst example of friendship extended by the U.S., as Secretary of State Collin Powell recently avowed that Pakistan is the U.S. biggest and trusted ally outside NATO.

"The bomb blast in Pakistan and the sectarian fighting between the Sunnis and the Shiites show that the U.S. has started implementing its program.

"The U.S. contends that Osama bin Ladin is hiding somewhere in Pakistan. Ironically, President Pervez Musharaff has also said that Osama might be alive and hiding in the NWFP or on the Pakistan-Afghan border. This will give the U.S. an excuse to attack Pakistan. Right after 1947, the U.S. has been using Pakistan for its mean purposes and Pakistan's military rulers have always served Americaninterests for their survival. On its part, India should not be a part of any such misadventure. Because the U.S. is nobody's friend, India should not become a party to its devilish scheme lest this devil will also devour it one day. It is now time for the three big countries of Asia, China, India, and Pakistan to join hands and fight U.S. misadventure and hegemony.

"The book also reveals that the other possible targets of the U.S. will be Sudan, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Turkey.

"Turkey is a NATO member. It regards itself as a secular country, although it is a 100 percent Muslim nation. It is a friend of Israel and has diplomatic and business relations with it. Turkey should know that the U.S. is totally committed to the Zionist state and is promoting Zionism. It cannot be anybody's friend, especially of the Muslims. Turkey should realize that its survival lies in Islam.

"This book should open the eyes of other Muslim countries which have warm relations with the U.S. Muslim countries are having a difficult time. After the collapse of the USSR, the U.S. is playing its game openly as there is nobody to challenge it anymore.

" President George W. Bush is also the biggest enemy of Islam. After 9/11, he openly advocated a Crusade and everyone in the world knows what a crusade is a war against the Muslims and total annihilation of the Muslims."
