The Real Reasons for the War in Afghanistan

According to William Engdahl, the US military is in Afghanistan for two reasons.

First to restore and control the world’s largest supply of opium for the world heroin markets, and to use the drugs as a geopolitical weapon against opponents, especially Russia. That control of the Afghan drug market is essential for the liquidity of the bankrupt and corrupt Wall Street financial mafia.

The second reason the US military remains in Afghanistan, long after the world has forgotten even who the mysterious Osama bin Laden and his alleged Al Qaeda terrorist organization is or even if they exist, is as a pretext to build a permanent US military strike force with a series of permanent US airbases across Afghanistan. The aim of those bases is not to eradicate any Al Qaeda cells that may have survived in the caves of Tora Bora, or to eradicate a mythical “Taliban” which at this point according to eyewitness reports is made up overwhelmingly of ordinary Afghanis fighting to rid their land once more of occupier armies.

The aim of the US bases in Afghanistan is to target and be able to strike at the two nations which today represent the only combined threat in the world today to an American global imperium.

According to an official UN report, opium production in Afghanistan has risen dramatically since the downfall of the Taliban in 2001. And more land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than for coca cultivation in Latin America. 93% of the opiates on the world market originate in Afghanistan. This is no accident.

And according to Afghan sources, Hamid Karzai, long in the CIA’s service, is the Opium “Godfather” of Afghanistan today.
