We all know by now that historians will look upon the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with a strategic goal in mind.

We all know by now that the Iraq war was motivated by US desire to keep the US dollar the main reserve currency by pressuring OPEC to use the dollar as the standard for oil transactions. Since everyone needs oil, everyone builds up US dollar reserves, which allows US to keep printing money, to finance their outrageous spending budgets. Iraq, with it's 2nd largest proven oil reserves after SA, threatened to dump US Dollars for Euros, which would have seriously undermined US economic dominance in the oil trade.

Why is the Afghanistan war fought?

Geopolitically, it makes sense to establish a permanent strategic military presence in order to ensure US presence in Central Asia.

Why is Central Asia important? Because the Shanghai alliance between Russia-China hindges on influence in the region.

Don't know what the Shanghai alliance is? Google SCO.

My personal thoughts and feelings: The potential Russia-China SCO alliance poses a much bigger threat than Afghanistan training base for "little-bitty-itty" terrorist attacks. US wants to be a major player in Central Asia, and wants a permanent foothold in Asia in general in order to counteract the potential Russia-China influence in Central aSia.

If Iraq/Afghanistan war persist, the US will spend $3 trillion dollars combined for each of the two wars. We must ask ourselves, Is the threat of WMDs and rag-tag-bandits living in caves in Afghanistan, worth $3 trillion dollars (20% of US GDP)?

There has to be a strategic motive involving Geopolitical incentives...

Conclusion: Afghanistan war is anti-China in nature... seeking to contain and stem China's broadening influence with Russia over the plains of Central Asia. See it as a preemptive first move (A queen takes over the pawn in preparation for a checkmate on Russia/China's doorstep)...

Because the US leadership is dumb as $hit. You kick out the Taliban, but you set up a corrupt and impotent pro-US government, only to leave 10 years later, leaving that pathetic government to deal with and eventually be kicked out by the same Taliban you removed 10 years ago.

This is one thing, but another thing is OIL and Heroin production!

Everyone knows that US is the paradise for potheads!

I have to say USA is the most evil country that ever existed - the country itself was made by stealing the Natives' land.

Despite all America claims of being multi-racial, Americans have been kept racially intolerant and prejudiced by the politicians and the media, and the reason for that is to try to keep the country united with a common fear and hate.


Exactly no matter even if you have been citizens here for centuries, they will see u as a stranger.

So all of americans bragging about being multi-racial doesn't mean crap and is just a cover up for their hypocrisy. All the major politicians are a westerner/caucasion, also all the big corporations are also Jew/Caucasion owned as well.
