England created pakistan for a reason. Which was to keep India China and Russia seperated. They had the resources and man power to take on the capatlist western world. I guess Israel was also created for a similar reason. A base from which to control the oil flow? 1947 right after ww2. England had control of palistine then, the Balfour agreement? Which was not really an official document, more of a private letter between allies/friends. Are we forgetting the opium? England was the biggest opium dealer in history, opium wars. Old tim osman aka laden bin of crap was bushs main dealer and in exchange for weapons, bush got opium/heroin. Once old binnie cut bush out of the deal. He was blamed for 911.

I have to agree that TPTB will never leave, and will always maintain a presence of both military, and civilian personnel. And it's not for the reasons you may think, here is why:

U.S. Identifies Vast Mineral Riches in Afghanistan

Massive lithium deposit found in Afghanistan
(As you know, lithium is used in the production of batteries)

Massive Mineral Gold deposits found in Afghanistan

Report: Afghanistan Sitting on Gold Mine -- Literally

It's not just the Gold, either......
A Status Report On Gemstones From Afghanistan

Lastly, this may be a little out there, but we have to look at all possibilities here.

Are the U.S. and Other Governments Guarding a Stargate Near Yemen?

They will never leave.

This is why all "liberational" military operations should go through the UN. It's all fine and dandy to liberate a country from retards like the talibans or Saddam. But that doesn't give carte blanche to violate the sovereignty of that nation after the fact democracy has been established.

Get in, do the job, get out. That's the way it's supposed to work. Anything else is dangerously close to imperialism.
