There are many accounts of an unfortunate or deliberate funding of the enemy. At first there was denial, then it was painted as something that could not be helped. Pakistan is funding the taliban with money it recieves from the us.

What is afghanistan about in your opinion? Is it still about the Kaspian oil pipline? The resouces such as Lithium, or is it to have a war going, any war, to profit from it?

Arrogance.

Many empires at the height of their achievements, through arrogance have tried to liberate, invade, occupy... Afghanistan.

That gave Afghanistan a very powerful title: "the graveyard of empires".

Empires always underestimated Afghanistan (arrogance).

It would be about many more things that can be covered in the scope of this thread! It's about removing a terrorist threat mainly! There have been unfortunate actions that have occurred but that will not deter from the good intent! Long live the right & justified coalition!

Are you talking about the terrorist threat of Al-Qaeda, or are you talking about Taliban and other insurgent groups within Afghanistan.

The Afghan war is about a few things.

www.foxnews.com...

One is the gold and other minerals.

Two is the oil, which literally makes thousands of products, used in everyday life.

Three the poppy plants, which makes drugs for Americans and the U.S. corporate military.

Four population control, reduction of Muslim's, by Christians, manipulated by the U.S. corp., controlled by Jewish banking families.

And i believe that is it. Though if there is a Fifth reason, some speculate Iraq and Afghan is where Sumeria was located and believe a "Star Gate" is there as well and is a reason for the occupation.

I think that covers it. The real Terrorists are the CIA and U.S. Corp.

the actions in Afghanistan are all about paybacks to the Mujahedeen who we armed,
paid and trained to kill the Soviets...but who turned on the Americans with the Taliban
and other religio-political positions who wanted self determination and a complete break
from American colonialism.

Iran Contra happened for the need of covert funding for the Afghan fighters,
and the policy makers & hawks in the Pentagon & Think-Tanks said they
will need a spanking for making the western SuperPower look stupid.

I personally think that it is extremely odd, that everyone who fights US is evil.

Also I find it odd, that everyone who US goes to war against is evil.

It is as if US can never be the problem, but only the solution.

The above is my personal opinion.

I keep seeing that video of our troops guarding the poppy fields in my head and it makes me sad.

Poppy/Herion production has increased exponentially since our troops have been there.

Add that to all of the other reasons (none of which includes finding the ALLEGED mastermind of the 9/11 attacks), and it seems obvious to me: America is the proverbial "bad guy".

Our government just flat out does bad, evil stuff.

The Art of War by Sun Tzu .states ...."All war is based on deception"..... "All war is deception"

The purpose of the Afghan war is to deceive the public into believing that "some men in a cave shut down NORAD on 9/11"

And to distract us from the truth. To keep us living in fear.. And to steal money from the Tax payers to fund other covert agendas.

To run military training exercises like learning how to chase the ghosts of an invisible enemy that never even existed across the sand

And to buy more time to plan the next move in their Global chess game. To give us a "boogie man" scapegoat to blame and hate.

To separate, divide and conquer. Have us quarrel amongst ourselves and spin in circles while eating donuts

And to treat us just like the fools and pawns we have always been to them. While getting a test gauge as to how

will we react to their game of Global Monopoly when our noses get rubbed into a pile of horse bulloney
