[quote:SE:MV8yMDEyMjEzXzMzODI3NjU3XzU1OTQ1RTAw] Here's what I told a friend [i]before [/i]the Afghanistan War... to summarize... If this war is about oil then you won't see any restart of the now defunct heroin / opium poppie trade in Afghanistan. If it's really about the heroin/opiate trade then we will see a quick restart of the opium poppie crops once the war is underway... Sure enough... where the CIA published in early 2001 that Afghanistan opium poppie crops were almost non-existent in Afghanistan, by 2003 they published that the LARGEST opium poppie crops in years were nearly ready to be harvested in Afghanistan. Remember Dubya's (his daddy also has the nickname "Poppy Bush") public vitriol for the UN around the time of the Afghanistan war?? It was the UN that negotiated with the Taliban the demise of the crops using a medicine and food program. So... as soon as the "allies" had control of the farmlands in Afghanistan the opium poppie crops were quickly replanted. Wars often have SEVERAL reasons behind them and to focus on just a single one is the 'psyop' that hides the truth. [/quote]
Five months before September 11 2001, the US advocated using force against Iraq … to secure control of its oil.
The Afghanistan war was planned before 9/11

According to French intelligence officers, the U.S. wanted to run an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to transport Central Asian oil more easily and cheaply. And so the U.S. told the Taliban shortly before 9/11 that they would either get “a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs”, the former if they greenlighted the pipeline, the second if they didn’t.
Congressman Ed Markey said:
Well, we’re in Libya because of oil.
Senator Graham agreed.
And the U.S. and UK overthrew the democratically-elected leader of Iran because he announced that he would nationalize the oil industry in that country.
It’s a War for GAS
But it’s about gas as much as oil
As key war architect John Bolton said last year:
The critical oil and natural gas producing region that we fought so many wars to try and protect our economy from the adverse impact of losing that supply or having it available only at very high prices.
For example, the pipeline which the U.S. wanted to run through Afghanistan prior to 9/11 was to transport gas as much as oil.
