The Real Reason Why We Are In Afghanistan
We are in Afghanistan to be militarily close to the Caspian basin to make sure the US gets its share of the oil there. We are not there to save the Afghani people or spread democracy or any other noble cause. Articles like this are really disinformation, since they give seem to give credence to our being there for noble, if misguided reasons. We are there for one primary reason. Oil. Secondarily, war makes some a handsome profit for a small connected few at the expense of the many. The fact that both civilians and our military get killed is not relevant to the decision makers.
