NATO prospecting for Afghanistan’s mineral riches
Visiting Washington on 13 May 2010, Afghan President Hamid Karzai alluded to his country’s staggering mineral resources, estimated to be worth between 1 and 3 trillion dollars, which would make Afghanistan one of the richest countries in the world.
For a long time, geologists have been convinced about the existence of Afghanistan’s mineral-rich suboil, exploited in the past for its precious stones. Since the beginning of the Anglo-American invasion, the U.S. Department of the Interior and the British Government have been sending engineers from the U.S. Geological Survey and the British Geological Survey. Current financial estimates are based on their 2007 reports. They certify the existence of gigantic quantities of iron, copper, cobalt, gold, lithium, etc..
It was equally on the basis of these reports that both the Bush Administration, towards the end of its mandate, and the Obama Administration made their decision to escalate the U.S. and NATO military effort in Afghanistan.

Foreign Press Center briefing with Jim Townsend JR., Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for European and NATO Policy
By Riaz Sohail - BBC News, Karachi - 6 October 2010
Nato supply convoys travelling through Pakistan to Afghanistan have regularly come under attack in the past, but following Pakistan's decision to block their route through the Khyber Pass, they now face an even bigger security threat.
Hundreds of tankers and trucks have been left stranded on highways and depots across Pakistan, with little or no security.
Taliban militants have regularly been targeting the convoys, even when they are heavily protected.
But many believe it is not just the militants who pose a security threat to the convoys.
The owners of oil tankers being used to supply fuel to Nato in Afghanistan say some of the attacks on their convoys are suspicious.
They say there is evidence to suggest that bombs have been planted in many of vehicles by the "Nato contractors" - individuals or companies who have been contracted by Nato to supply fuel and goods to forces in Afghanistan.
Here is the fifteenth video of several in a row. Dr. Daniele Ganser is an academic historian from Switzerland who has researched false flag terrorism in Europe. Besides his publicity around the 9/11 truth movement, I think also his historical work about the so-called "secret armies" is extremly interesting.
More videos coming, in unchronological order from now on. Sorry for spelling mistakes.
Here is the sixth video of several in a row. Dr. Daniele Ganser is an academic historian from Switzerland who has researched false flag terrorism in Europe. Besides his publicity around the 9/11 truth movement, I think also his historical work about the so-called "secret armies" is extremly interesting.
In a recent article for Foreign Affairs, the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, Zbigniew Brzezinski calls for NATO to transform itself into a "hub" for a global security "web". This article is an expanded version of a NY Times Op-Ed piece he wrote in August.
Brzezinski advocates the following:
"But to remain relevant, NATO cannot — as some have urged — simply expand itself into a global alliance or transform itself into a global alliance of democracies. A global NATO would dilute the centrality of the U.S.-European connection, and none of the rising powers would be likely to accept membership in a globally expanded NATO. Furthermore, an ideologically defined global alliance of democracies would face serious difficulties in determining whom to exclude and in striking a reasonable balance between its doctrinal and strategic purposes.
Daniele Ganser, scientist at the University of Basel lectures in several issues around 9/11 and is an important and credible voice in spreading the truth, especially about World Trade Center 7. His talks are very well visited and famous.
Now, his latest book NATO's secret armies has been covered in german mass media as a "required reading". This is probably one of the best books about state-sponsored terrorism, even if it touches 9/11 only on the surface. The historical approach with several proven "flase flag" attacks during the cold war give even sceptics a good lecture in thinking about what governments are really capable of. Here is the television excerpt with subtitles:
On 10/3/08, retired Four-Star General Wesley Kanne Clark took part in a discussion about International Justice at the UCLA Law School. Clark, who had been Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) of NATO during Operation Allied Force in the Kosovo War, insisted that international justice is important but in conflict with the long history in the United States of acting as seen fit in the moment.
Can you say O-I-L? : )
How imperial rivalries stoked war in Georgia
Lee Sustar looks at the roots of Russia's war on Georgia.
August 12, 2008 | Issue 678 
ACCORDING to the Western media, the Russian military's bloody invasion of the former Soviet republic of Georgia is all about "Russian imperialism" and the "Cold War" mentality of Vladimir Putin, the Russian president-turned-prime minister and still the country's leading political figure.
Certainly, Russia's aim to dominate Georgia--which fell under Moscow's control in the late 18th century and was formally annexed in 1801--are imperial in nature. But it's revealing that after selling the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq as exercises in "promoting democracy," the corporate media is finally willing to characterize a great power's expansionist military moves as "imperialist."

Iraq war anniversary misses 9/11 focus
It's the fourth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War. It also feels like the anniversary of the end of our national focus on bringing the architect of 9/11 to justice.
Just a quick tour of the numbers, to help us get our bearings.
According to the Pentagon, there are about 27,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan — the highest number since the October 2001 invasion. They are part of a NATO-led force of around 50,000. According to the Department of Defense, there have been 369 American service personnel killed in Afghanistan, as well as 676 who were wounded and unable to return to action.
In Iraq, there are upwards of 142,000 U.S. troops. The Associated Press puts the current number killed at 3,217. Those wounded and unable to go back: 10,685, according to the DOD.
