Real Reason of War in Afghanistan

afghanistan_warWithin Asia, there’s something called the “Golden Crescent”, an area of illicit opium production. Afghanistan’s major export is opium, where i’m sure the CIA would love for it to flourish to further embellish & embrace organized crime. That’s one reason for occupation, but there’s another motive – transit of the black gold from one of the last bastions on the planet with a huge reserve of oil & gas…


The 1,680 kilometres (1,040 mi) pipeline will run from the Dauletabad gas field to Afghanistan. From there TAPI will be constructed alongside the highway running from Herat to Kandahar, and then via Quettaand Multan in Pakistan. The final destination of the pipeline will be the Indian town of Fazilka, near the border between Pakistan and India.

So where’s the oil and gas?

The Caspian Sea and gas fields in Turkmenistan, that’s where. There is now a sense of urgency to extract these reserves as peak oil has now been reached. Experts estimate the Caspian could hold “possible reserves” of up to 233 billion barrels of oil. By comparison, Saudi Arabia has 261 billion barrels of oil and the United States 23 billion!

The TAPI pipeline will go through Afghanistan and the quasi-government ran by karzai (who was apparently an ex-employee of Unocal, the US oil company who were involved with a memorandum of understanding for the pipeline proposed build way back in 1996). Afghanistan will get huge transit fees for this pipeline, hence the blatant corruption that’s going on with Karzai’s ‘smoke ‘n mirrors’ tenancy, as he was bought many moons ago and bent over the proverbial barrel.

Proof that oil is the reason…

Look at the map; notice the deaths of military in and around the proposed pipeline, especially Helmand Province. The TAPI pipeline will begin construction in 2010, hence the urgent surge in troop requirements to secure the route.

It’s also interesting to note, that a brand new highway was constructed between Herat and Kandahar which the Afghans thought served no purpose, but of course it does serve a purpose because the pipeline will run alongside the highway!

So whilst the Taliban occupy the highlands and poppy fields, the military are busy safeguarding the proposed Herat / Kandahar silk route. If more troops are sent in the name of democracy and fighting Taliban resistance, just expect more casualties of war in and around the this key region, thus corroborating the real reason for the war…OIL.
