Afghanistan’s Natural Wealth Evaluated at $1 Trillion / Commodities / Afghanistan

By: Pravda

In Afghanistan, American geologists have discovered deposits of iron, copper, lithium, cobalt, and gold worth $1 trillion. Experts believe that these reserves may not only stop the poverty in one of the poorest countries in the world, but turn Afghanistan in a flourishing country and one of the largest centers of natural resources excavation.

Afghanistan Resources War For Vast Reserves of Minerals and Natural Gas / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 2001 bombing and invasion of Afghanistan has been presented to World public opinion as a "Just War", a war directed against the Taliban and Al Qaeda, a war to eliminate "Islamic terrorism" and instate Western style democracy. The economic dimensions of the "Global War on Terrorism" are rarely mentioned.

Is The War In Afghanistan About Terror, Or Heroin? / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo one knows how much the “War on Terror” cost so far, but if you add up the actual direct expenditure plus the economic damage, plus the cost of all the extra security, it wouldn’t surprise me if it came to more than the credit crunch cost. Of course it didn’t happen all in one go, but I just wonder whether the current malaise in USA might have something to do with that cost.

Afghanistan, World's Longest War Has Only Just Begun / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe higher number of Defense Department contractors, 160,000, added to over 100,000 troops - with the likely prospect of both numbers climbing yet more - will result in over a quarter of a million U.S. personnel serving under the Pentagon and NATO. The latter has 42,000 non-U.S. troops fighting under its command currently and pledges of 8,000 more to date, with thousands in addition to be conscripted after the London conference on Afghanistan next month.

It's too bad Barack Obama didn't consult with Malalai Joya before giving his Nobel acceptance speech on Thursday. The ex-Afghan Parliamentarian could have helped the president to see that the ongoing US occupation is damaging to both American and Afghan interests.

Obama's Afghanistan Plan and the Key Battleground / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. President Barack Obama announced the broad structure of his Afghanistan strategy in a speech at West Point on Tuesday evening. The strategy had three core elements. First, he intends to maintain pressure on al Qaeda on the Afghan-Pakistani border and in other regions of the world. Second, he intends to blunt the Taliban offensive by sending an additional 30,000 American troops to Afghanistan, along with an unspecified number of NATO troops he hopes will join them.

Why Obama’s Troop Surge in Afghanistan? / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday’s announcement that President Obama will send an additional 30,000 soldiers to Afghanistan — while begging his foreign allies to send an extra 10,000 — will have dramatic effects throughout the American and world society. 

The hope that Obama’s election would drastically change U.S. foreign policy has been destroyed.   The effects of his troop surge will change the minds of millions of Americans, who, until this point, were giving Obama the benefit of the doubt.

Deepening Economic Crisis, Financing War at the Expense of Job Creation / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica is in the most severe unemployment crisis since - and perhaps including - the Great Depression.

And yet Obama, like Bush, has done virtually nothing to create more jobs. Instead, they both gave trillions to the biggest banks (who are not loaning it out to the little guy) and for waging wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Lost History Of Helmand Afghanistan / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAdam Curtis writes: When you look at footage of the fighting in Helmand today everyone assumes it is being played out against an ancient background of villages and fields built over the centuries.

This is not true. If you look beyond the soldiers, and into the distance, what you are really seeing are the ruins of one of the biggest technological projects the United States has ever undertaken. Its aim was to use science to try and change the course of history and produce a modern utopia in Afghanistan. The city of Lashkar Gah was built by the Americans as a model planned city, and the hundreds of miles of canals that the Taliban now hide in were constructed by the same company that built the San Francisco Bay Bridge and Cape Canaveral.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most remarkable aspects of the Obama Presidential agenda is how little anyone has questioned in the media or elsewhere why at all the United States Pentagon is committed to a military occupation of Afghanistan. There are two basic reasons, neither one of which can be admitted openly to the public at large.

By: Michael_Gaddy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe can all look back at the wonderful decision that was made to send more troops to Korea.

The Afghan Disaster, More Force, More Money, More Death / Politics / Afghanistan

By: LewRockwell

In the private sector, there is always a test of success. The business must make a profit. It can sustain some losses but the clock is always running on those. At some point, after all cuts have been made and costs are trimmed to a minimum, the business has to close shop. The summer of losses must become the autumn of profits, or else it's all over.

Obghanistan, More for the Meat Grinder / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Ron_Shirtz

Throughout July and August of this year, US forces suffered almost 90 soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Heeding recommendations from military leaders and his advisors, President Obama has approved sending 17,000 troops, which includes a 5,000-member Marine Regimental Combat Team, to support the overextended combat troops in southern Afghanistan. While these numbers may seem impressive, in military terms this is the equivalent of scrounging couch change trying to pay off a balloon mortgage payment.

Britain Losing the Plot in Afghanistan as Losses Mount / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLesley Docksey writes: So far, the cost to the British taxpayer of our current ‘Great Game’ in Afghanistan is £12 billion(1).  If only our eight years there had cost nothing but money.  Leaving aside the horrendous cost to the Afghan people and their land, Britain’s forces have suffered loss, not least, because of the muddle, ignorance and incompetence of those who sent them to war, a loss of face.
