Why After Eleven Disastrous Years Are Americans Still in AFGHANISTAN?
The true answer is….. (in contrast to the lies of Clinton, Bush Jr and Obama the war is worth waging)… Vast reserves of minerals, natural gas, opium and CIA-sponsored “terrorism” acts in the strategic geopolitical area bordering China, Russia, Iran, Pakistan and Central Asia. The opium fields alone are worth a revenue stream of over $200M annually to CIA black ops…..we are talking cash, no records, no accountability- just like Viet Nam, Burma…you get the drift.
Let us start with the faked reasons we, Americans were given to sacrifice our innocent men and women…direct from the CIA/Neocon Bush Jr/Cheney/Wolfowitz sponsored 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.
 Afghanistan is ‘defined by our government’ as state sponsor of terrorism, NOT TRUE!!!
 The ELEVEN YEAR WAR IS “RETRIBUTION” for the 9/11 attacks. Not True! 9/11 was created so we could justify a war, old tactic..
 USG/NATO is bringing democracy and freedom to a Muslim, suppressed war-torn society. NOT TRUE!! Afghanistan is richer in minerals/gas than all of Saudi Arabia.
The simple reason we have been in Afghanistan for eleven years and supported a crooked, ex-deli owner Hamid Karzai is because Afghanistan is treasure of minerals, coal, opium, gas, oil and ‘strategic geopolitical points’ from which the CIA and US military can cause unnecessary ‘conflagrations’ around Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran, Central Asia.
Unfortunately our Pentagon had lied once again in 2010—it does have a very bad record of veracity—lying about 9/11, Osama Bin Laden and his “non-existence” and then the make believe Seal Team Six kill and again the lie about Benghazi [JCS US Army General Martin Dempsey- remember his famous benghazi anti muslim video, spontaneous riots and, as always, John Brennen].
Now the Pentagon/CIA/POTUS have in conjunction with the US Geological Survey [USGS] and USAID [a completely worthless organization, usually a very poor cover for the “Quiet American”, a la Graham Greene, ex-MI6, novelist.] committed another misstep in timing and veracity when they announced the following:
"The PREVIOUSLY UNKOWN DEPOSITS—including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like LITHIUM—are so big and include so many minerals that are ESSENTIAL TO MODERN INDUSTRY that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers of the world."
WOW!! So, Adios MF! the reasons about so-called state sponsored terrorism, democracy, transparency, civil society. What unbelievable BULLSHITSKI WE AMERICANS ARE BEING FED EVERY DAY, not only BY POTUS and his CHOIR BOYS, but also our much trusted PENTAGON, LEGISLATURE AND JUDICIAL SYSTEM.
Even I am a little shocked, having been in that particular country for reasons of my own. But I knew something was very wrong when the snake-oil salesman, ex-Ambassador, a CIA asset Zalmay Khalilzad [token muslim amidst the neocons and Bush jr/Cheney/Hadley/Wolfowitz cabal] who had worked for me [or with me?] put the crooked, bipolar mentally-ill, ex –Maryland delicatessen owner, Hamid Karzai, as the so-called President [please read pathetic CIA PUPPET] of the non-existent country called Afghanistan, rife with tribal/ethnic turf battles going on since the time of Alexander the Great.
Then what is the problem here, if the Pentagon told us on June 14, 2010 the truth?
Well, the truth is that many of the us in the National Security area since the 1960s knew what the Soviets knew and pronounced to deaf ears.
The Soviet geologists discovered and built the first gas pipelines in the Afghanistan to supply Uzbekistan. At that time, some fifty years ago, USG and the PENTAGON/CIA/RAND knew that the Soviets were RECEIVING 2.5 BILLION CUBIC METERS [meter is nine feet] ANNUALLY. At the same time, we knew in the USG that the Soviets were importing large deposits of gold, fluorite, barytes and marble onyxes. But equally important we knew then, fifty years ago, that the Soviets were extracting from the extremely, mineral-rich HINDU KUSH MOUNTAINS - the following minerals which are not in any way related to terrorism, al-qaeda, democracy, taliban.
-Pegmatite discovered east of KABUL
-Lithium [remember the Dreamliner Accident?]
-Beryllium, Thorium, tantalum—all used in airlines, electronics and spacecrafts.
Allow me to further enlighten you about the well-known (in certain circles) Soviet research and extraction processes, as well as geological maps and detailed reports of 1400 mineral outcroppings, along with 70 some odd commercial endeavors. So much for recent Pentagon and U.S. Geological reports or findings….we have known about this for half a century or more. There is conflict because the country in question wouldn't "play ball" when Bush jr/Zalmay asked to provide protection to the gas pipeline there….does this sound like a gangsta tactic, it is! Yes, citizens, we have been manipulated again! We thought we went to war for democracy, women's rights etc, Hell No! Just pure simple gangsta greed. This is important turf and USG is not going to give it up! Our military is sent in to protect and secure the valuable natural resources and gas pipelines linking the Caspian Sea to the Arabian Sea. This is why our brave servicemen/women are dying and coming back with PTSD.
There is over $8billion planned/executed for the TAPI - a pipeline. We are talking about 1900 kilometers of pipe which will transport natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan then to India (see link posted previously). This is very important, read about it so you get a clear picture of why we are there in Afghanistan. Are you starting to smell the money, the greed? You know now that the Bushes, Clintons and now Obamas are aware and know exactly why they are sending our men and women into this fake war and why we won't get out! Its about the money, honey! No matter what they say, you now understand the picture.
So what should we do?
What about that crook Hamid Karzai? So far there have been six documented assassination attempts, probably instigated by you know who, please initials only. I posted a link to the details on this as well. But for our dear friend, its only a matter of time- think Noreiga, Sadam, Qadaffi, Assad. No more needs to be said.
What about the rogue CIA?- cut their funds, give them a good haircut! Let's have some balls and really slash their payroll. We need the money for other stuff.
And the greedy politicians that pretend to be so patriotic and humane (nice words) but are lining their own (and their family's) pockets with money looted for them by the mis informed and cowardly military leadership? Knowledge is power! challenge the greedy bastards with the truth….in your own way, everyday.
What about our veterans? Our military service men and women? Stop using them for canon fodder and give them real skills that translate into real career opportunities. The fight is not in Afghanistan, Yemen or all these other places that the USG says we are serving, come on, get real! We need training and jobs at home…..we need our money spent on education, infrastructure, cyber security, technology, immigration reform, space exploration etc. Stop lying, we don't believe it anymore! Enough of the thuggery!
