On April 10, Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan was overthrown in yet another CIA coup. The people of Pakistan are rising up in protest.
It took Iran 26 years to reverse the 1953 coup that installed the Shah. God willing, Pakistan will act much faster.
For background on the coup see VT’s piece by Nauman Sadiq “Pakistan’s Pivot to Russia and Ouster of Imran Khan” and Manuel Pérez-Rocha‘s article “Ousted Pakistani Leader Was Challenging Investment Treaties That Give Corporations Excessive Power.”
