China's thirst for copper could hold key to Afghanistan's future



JALREZ VALLEY, Afghanistan — In this Taliban stronghold in the mountains south of Kabul, the U.S. Army is providing the security that will enable China to exploit one of the world's largest unexploited deposits of copper, earn tens of billions of dollars and feed its voracious appetite for raw materials.

American troops have become China's strong arm and protection racquet. Notice how China gets ALL the projects, ALL the resources, ALL the jobs, American gets all the dirty work.


Beijing faces enormous challenges in completing the project and gaining access to the estimated 240 million tons of copper ore that are accessible through surface mining. Taliban-led insurgents operate in large parts of Logar and Wardak; the area is sown with mines; and China must complete an ambitious set of infrastructure projects, including Afghanistan's first national railway, as part of the deal.

China's willingness to gamble so much in one of the world's poorest and riskiest nations testifies to its determination to acquire the commodities it needs to maintain its economic growth and social stability.

Are they gambling to create the development or are they gambling at creating and maintaining a monopoly of copper ore ?


In Mt. Toromocho in the Peruvian Andes, for example, the only copper deposit said to be larger than Aynak, China is relocating a town and its inhabitants to get at a mountain of copper ore.

"Why the Chinese? Because they have money, they have lots of money," Ashraf said. "One day, when there is no more copper elsewhere in the world, the Chinese will have copper."

So China will own the two biggest mines in the world of perhaps THE MOST vital future rare metal and we are sending our men and women to DIE to allow this MONOPOLY to move forward, there has got to be a Rothchilds bank involved with the project how can you NOT smell a RAT !


Although China is contributing a much smaller share of the more than $25 billion in international assistance that's been pledged to Afghanistan since 2001 than the U.S. is, the Obama administration isn't complaining. China's investment in Aynak dovetails with the administration's emerging strategy for ending the war in part by delivering on unfulfilled vows to better the lives of the poor Afghans who constitute the vast majority of the Taliban's foot soldiers."

The problem of security, the problem of the Taliban, we cannot solve these problems with the military," Ashraf said.

Site preparation work has begun. But it'll be some years before state-owned China Metallurgical Construction Corp. can begin the projected 15 to 20 years of production at the site 30 miles south of Kabul.

In the good old day these would have been American jobs, an American monopoly, and the natives would have loved us for it because we were decent people and understood to be more generous then all the other options, but today its just Mafioso activity and it gets WORSE !


The site was discovered by an Afghan-Soviet team in 1974. However, in the face of armed resistance during their 1979-89 occupation of Afghanistan, the Soviets were never able to develop the site or harvest the ore.

The main challenge to MCC is the Taliban, who moved into Kabul's southern fringes after China clinched the deal, prompting the January deployment in Logar and Wardak of more than 2,000 troops from the Army's 10th Mountain Division from Fort Drum, N.Y. On Tuesday, a roadside bomb injured three policemen protecting a crew building an access road to Aynak.

So WE created the Taliban to be our THUGS throw out the Soviets, frighten and terrorize the locals until it was brought HOME, and now we are back there helping the Chinese to get the resources the jobs, that way middle Americans don't participate, but the USA military moves in to replace the old thugs with some new thugs and continues to participate which means, SPEND, SPEND, SPEND !


China may hope that the Aynak deal will help it position it to compete for more projects in Afghanistan, where three tectonic plates converge. The region is thought to hold some of the world's last major untapped deposits of iron, copper, gold, uranium, precious gems and other raw materials.

"It's the last frontier," said the second Western official.

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that Afghanistan also has more than 1.5 billion barrels of oil — almost untapped since soldiers of Alexander the Great discovered pools of oil in the north more than 2,000 years ago — and 15 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

If American troops are there you ALWAYS bet there is oil as well.


"When we have a little security here, this will be a paradise to come and mine," he said. "We are near the markets. Those markets are China and India. The transportation is not difficult. The difficulty is that everyone says, 'We must have security and then we will invest.'"

There they go calling it a paradise again, I can see the Chinese and Afghans, with American troops with guns standing over them, boogying to some Eagles music.

They are all in it together, not the workers, the top dogs that is.
US gets the OIL, China gets Copper and ?? lets see who starts getting what else.

If they were not working together, no way US would protect the Chinese, infact I would have expected the US to simply bomb the place up and then go get the copper, they are real good at blowing stuff up I hear.

This is the work of TPTB in action, US has arms and next to unlimited military budget, so use them for military, China has hard working low paid workers, so use them for the work. You know its kinda becoming too obvious these days. It seems as if they don't even care if anyone figures them out.

Moving a village to get at the mineral resources sounds like the movie Avatar. It is time to bring the troops home. Let China cozy up to the Taliban to protect their investment. No need for any more Americans to be killed in the name of corporate greed.

Dude, China is giving you loans, so what did you think? Did you think US would pay it back using American money? No, US is taking loans to kill Afghans, then giving contracts to Chinese companies, just like in Iraq. People forget so fast.

Those loans are needed to keep US dollar up, but US economy is at Mercy of foreign investors, if they sell it off, a quick crash could come, so they are pleasing the Chinese right now, because Saudi Arabia is just a puppet state, they will do anything for US. UK is also kind a what we call a lick "###", so US doesn't need to worry about them either.

If China mixed it up, and changed to gold, away from dollar like other countries were doing, like Libya and Syria, then dollar would have lost its value, US would have to pay loans with weaker currency and investors would demand higher tax rates to give loans for US.

This is what US is trying to avoid, this is the reason behind the unrest in Syria and the war in Libya. People think these are coincidence, something to do with the Arab spring, it is much bigger than that. US economy is dying, China won't allow it either, they hold a lot of depth share.

China has tasted capitalism and it will unleash not the panda, but the ugly head of the dragon.

So, if I understand correctly - the US Army has essentially become a mercenary available for hire?

Exactly, you could probably hire them as personal protection, .... provided you have a couple hundred billion or trillion.
They are essentially "hired" by those at the top to do their bidding, and same for chinese workers. To top it off they use the taxpayers (your) money to hire them.

Seems like the US is doing it in an attempt to "pay off" some of their massive debt to China?

Very interesting information.
A piece of the puzzle.

Does it proove corporations is running the show?
or
U.S is a bully to hire for China or the Queen or Bandar Bush.


Because, when you think about it.
U.S is the most militarized country and the most active in that matter. Always playing the bad guy and getting their hands dirty.
Anyways, i'm pretty much convinced it's the first option but my head is boiling right now, too many scenarios..argh@#%$..

Dude, I could point you to investments advisors proclaim the next BIG investment BOOM, gold mines in China !

I assure you the road to China building its gold reserves into a world class amount is rot with soo many investments ticks from American and worse Rothschild investment bankers that the fortune that will build will lead us to the stars !

I believe that this article is a microcosm of the ENTIRE STORY, the American middle class destroyed by being shut out of the world economy and the HUGE opportunities it holds. When I was at University in the 80s my professors were going oversea to build water projects, these are the Americans who could have participated in opportunities like the one in this article accept the world became too dangerous, the world turned on us because they realized the US Military were the ones stirring the pot of violence.

The Russian debt crisis was probably the turning point to the American middle class being shut out of real wealth opportunities world wide.

So the reason WE OWE ALL THAT MONEY TO CHINA is because our own military set us up in soo many ways its impossible to account for it ALL !

Think if this way ...

After the cataclysm, they believe they WILL survive it very well, our leaders and Chinese leaders will emerge from their caves and crank up all those coal power plants and to HELL with any ecological concerns.

The world will be VERY VERY COLD after the cataclysm, get some tough insulated work boots now while you can, who knows what will be available later.

The corporations, military, press are ALL ONE BIG ORGANIZATION NOW but they won't say that out in the open until after the cataclysm.

China the USA, Britannia, and Rothschild European bankers, will become one BIG communist state that RULES AND ENSLAVES THE REST OF THE WORLD !!!!!!

I don't think they will survive the cataclysm very well though, so their plans for world domination will be put off until around 2060 and I probably won't live to see it.
