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 Euraisian 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).”
