Afghanistan Mineral Deposits Was “Economic Prize” All Along - Brzezinski

Eric Blair

News of the “Stunning discovery” of vast minerals in Afghanistan, first reported by James Risen in Sunday’s New York Times article, U.S. Identifies Vast Riches of Minerals in Afghanistanis rapidly spreading as “good news.”  Well, unfortunately for mainstream media, this is old news and a well-documented motivation for the War in Afghanistan by the global elite.

Risen reports; “The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials," and “The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world, the United States officials believe.”

In fact this stunning new discovery has been the target of American hegemony for well over a decade.  Indeed, it may well be the real reason for the sustained War in Afghanistan as outlined in Zbigniew Brzezinski's 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives.

Zbigniew Brzezinski, a presidential advisor, Trilateral Commission founder, Bilderberger, and Council of Foreign Relations figurehead describes the strategic location of the Eurasian Balkans (of which Afghanistan is the heart of) as follows:

“...the Eurasian Balkans are infinitely more important as a potential economic prize: an enormous concentration of natural gas and oil reserves is located in the region, in addition to important minerals, including gold (page 124),” and "America's global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained...A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world's three most advanced and economically productive regions...most of the world's physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil (page 30-31)." 

The Times article hints at the truth that this discovery was well known prior to the 2001 U.S. invasion, “In 2004, American geologists, sent to Afghanistan as part of a broader reconstruction effort, stumbled across an intriguing series of old charts and data at the library of the Afghan Geological Survey in Kabul that hinted at major mineral deposits in the country. They soon learned that the data had been collected by Soviet mining experts during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s, but cast aside when the Soviets withdrew in 1989.” 

The notion that Soviet-connected Brzezinski and other intelligence agencies did not have access to the data at the Afghan Geological Survey prior to the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan is simply preposterous.  Especially given the fact that since at least 2007 China already has been willing to spend big on a plan for Afghan commerce, spearheaded by their investment in Afghan mineral deposits at the Aynak copper mine in Logar province.  American officials now cite this investment as fear that, “resource-hungry China will try to dominate the development of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, which could upset the United States, given its heavy investment in the region.”  And perhaps this is what it is all about – access.  Isn’t war always about money and resource control?

This concern of China competing for these resources was stated long ago by Brzezinski: “China's growing economic presence in the region and its political stake in the area's independence are also congruent with America's interests (page 148).”

Brzezinski also noted that in order for the U.S. to the “manage” the Eurasia continent sufficiently they must, "prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together (page 40)."   It is nice to know how the elite really feel about the common citizen standing in their way of resource control.

In fact, years before the September 2000 PNAC report calling for a “Pearl Harbor –Type event” to galvanize the American public to invade these strategic geopolitical and resource-rich areas, Brzezinski referenced the very same method here; "The attitude of the American public toward the external projection of American power has been much more ambivalent. The public supported America's engagement in World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (page 24-25).”

Coincidentally, they got their “Pearl Harbor” event on September 11th, 2001 and their subsequent “domination” over the area's vast mineral resources a month later with the invasion of Afghanistan. 

The NYT article is conveniently released when the Obama administration is “hungry for some positive news to come out of Afghanistan.”  The DoD senior executive Pat Lang is quoted "the lives of ordinary Afghans will be profoundly changed perhaps for the better," as if the pirates of American primacy would allow the “vassals and barbarians” to have a fair piece of the booty.

Cool lets all fight and die for the NWO....

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop Afghanistan;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Zbigniew Brzezinski's grand plan for World Government, was the Architect for a NEW Pearl Harbor, to get a WAR in Afghanistan accomplished. He got his wish!

Zbigniew Brzezinski wears his age much better than Kissinger, but he is every bit as maggot-ridden from the tip of his groomed toenails to the top of his coiffed skull.

He has never fought as in put his own body on the line in combat. He describes the concept of war to be "thrilling". He considers the wars he creates, the social destruction and deaths, the genocides and the intrigues, to be nothing more than "a grand chessboard".

He (as has Kissinger have)also been reading bed time stories to Obama for decades now. He has done this for every president since he himself began his political career.

One of my happier moments was when he announced worries about the populace of the world awakening and the dangerous position of the NWO.

I realize now, however, that could have been a well planned disinfo... men like him do not make such mistakes. Nor do they ever ever ever apologize for a single thing.

On a simpler note, I have always known this to be true regarding the jems. I have loved lapis lazuli for decades now and although it comes from a few locales, the very most beautiful come from Afghanistan.

The same holds for all other gems especially the precious stones. There is just that extra colour depth and passion that gives Afghani stones something special.

It is all corporational. If not oils and fuels, it is the gold and flashy beauty. Whatever else involves...NO ONE has ever defeated the Afghani people. Not their core being. And that independence of thought cannot be tolerated. iran. Look what they did there to the Muslim people.

They steal the reserves and smatter family lives, they then bring in the porn and social degradation... the agenda helped by a good genocidal start, leaving so many people helpless and exploitable.

Gosh, I forgot, this was about the Taliban non? Or al Qaeda? Silly me! Of course the imperialist jackal thieves are there to "free" the people and teach them about "freedom".

Oh, and the comment about the sheeple learning to play chess... well said. I just hope our constant barraging finally gets out there, before it is not too late if it is not already.

I do not care for the new Salafi/Wahabbi Afghani Islam, but I do stand for a people to stand up for its survival against enemies such as the USA NATO and Israel cabal. The corruption of the purse has been set loose in Afghanistan.... those Zionists want that wealth.
