For those who think our brave military are dying in Afghanistan to protect our lives and freedom from 'terrorists' , think again. The Trans-Afghanistan pipeline has been in development since 1997 by its main investor Unocal. The gas pipeline runs from the Caspian Sea through Turkmenistan forking in Afghanistan with one line going to India and the other going to the Arabian Sea for exportation. In the late 1990's the Taleban were in negotiations with Unocal for the arrangements for the pipeline which eventualy the negotiations failed. Then 9/11 happened which gave the green light to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. One must look at all possible explanations behind 9/11 and this ' trumped up war' on terrorism. One warning was from Aaron Russo , who was friends with Nick Rockefeller who told Aaron about an" event " that was about to happen prior to 9/11. This Trans-Afghanistan pipeline is scheduled to be in operation in 2014. So figure our military will be there and probably past that date. Two videos of intrest. :

We are there for the pipeline, Opium, and Iran.

Afghanistan is the only place to mount an infantry attach against Iran, because the mountains on the Iraq side would be too hard to maneuver and attack.

We can't attack from Kuwait, because they said they will not allow it. If we were to attack from Afghanistan its nothing but desert all the way to Tehran.

That pipeline bull# makes no sense.

What the # are they going to do, once they do build the pipeline?

They would then need permanent security all around the pipeline areas, or the Taliban would just blow it up.

When the murdering,torturing Taleban were the US,s good friends they had a nice little trip over to the states to discuss the pipeline with US oil firms.
Guess which governor of Texas they went to visit in his mansion , all friendly like whist he sweet talked em ?
Clue : He later became prez and got really pissed about Afghanistan reneging on the oil pipeline.
Oh yeah then he invaded their asses.

Even after the Taleban agreed to the US demand to kick all Al-Qaeda out of their country the invasion still went ahead.
Sorry thats assuming anyone believes there is or was such a thing as Al-Qaeda and it wasnt just a CIA database as has now been pretty much confirmed.
