What is the attraction in Afghanistan
Sometime I think that what is the attraction in Afghanistan? There is no mineral, fertile plain land and attractive traveling area in Afghanistan. So why are they (American and Taliban) fighting for Afghanistan? Why does need it for American and Taliban. Because there is very fertile hill for plough good quality poppy tree for producing heroin and cocaine. It is most expansible product in the world. Which is like the capitalist, more profit will be against little investment. And another thing, the capitalist never like the protester against them so they sell it for taking as a drag those third world countries because they know that the poverty creates the protester. It is historical truth. We can understand about our all Prophet, Spartacus and lastly Lenin. All are protester against the capitalist. So they (the capitalist) want to collapse the young generation of those third world country where is more poverty. They are doing there very easily because they know that the Governments of those third world countries are very corrupted. So the capitalist entice them other side. They invest the finance in the third world country on the name of development work but they know very much that the corrupted Government of the third world will misuse or misappropriate the fund than the development in their country, as a result those countries will be gone towards the poverty day by day and create more inequality class into the people then they (the capitalist) can keep the presser on those countries always and use them as a slave. If it can be possible to make more inequality class into the people in a society then get very cheap labor at there so they (the capitalist)) want to take this chance for using cheap labor and try to realize the ownership on the mineral resources from those countries of the third world because they invest a lot of money on the name of development work and take opportunity to control the market with the name of globalization in the whole world. So then they create a sabotage war (on the issue of ideologically or politically) into those countries of the third world with the name of democracy (this democracy is the falsehood of a liar) for controlling those corrupted Government. They are big and highly businessman than the leader of the world. So they also want to hide their very dexterity politics to make violence in the whole world.
We know that we abolished the slavery system in the world from fifteen hundred years ago, but is it correct? No, we are practicing and continuing this system till now from the back screen. After abolish the slavery we made the theory of feudalism, imperialism, colonialism and latest modification democratization (capitalism). All isms are alive the slavery in the world. All isms ruler have used the poverty as slavery and they have been tyrannizing to the ignorance poor people from a long time and to continue till now.
it is simple, its strategic location. Next to Pakistan and India. next to China, and next to the Middle East, and Iran. It is also the cross route for potential oil.
Which is why historically the west has always tried to control, (Brits) and Russia.
There is no way in the world that china or pakistan are going or even russia are going to let the yanks stay there for long. it is just a grave yard for them.
Pakistan has a very large gas reserves & quite often where there is gas, oil is present as well.
it is the strategic route for the gas/oil from turkmenistan and other ex soviet republics.
the taliban refused to enter into a deal with unocol (usa) for the pipeline because they unocol offered only 15% of the profits. karzai was an executive in unocol.
if they get iran then afghanistan is not as important.
It is simple. Its a circle.
1) Taliban = safe haven for OBL and his crew.
2) Safe haven = place to train, plot & plan
3) Place to train, plot & plan = ability to attack great satan.
4) Ability to attack great satan = great satan will destroy safe haven & stop plotting & planning.
5) Plotting & planning stops = attacks on great satan stops.
6) Locals get sick of great satan = return of Taliban
This is where we are. If the Taliban return then go back to 1 and repeat.
Lots of gas reserves in Afghanistan and a key strategic point in Asia!
Afghanistan itself has some natural gas in the north of the country, near Turkmenistan. But above all it is ultra-strategic: positioned between the Middle East, Central Asia and South Asia, between Turkmenistan and the avid markets of the Indian subcontinent, China and Japan. Afghanistan is at the core of Pipelineistan.
