: Unmasking the Hidden Agenda

The Global War on Terror (GWOT),launched in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, has been a protracted and controversial conflict, particularly in Afghanistan. Behind the rhetoric of counterterrorism, a deeper geopolitical game has been unfolding – one driven by the interests of powerful nations, the lure of oil, and the perpetuation of conflict.

This article delves into the underbelly of GWOT, exposing the imperialistic motivations that have fueled the perpetual war in Afghanistan. It uncovers the shifting alliances, the covert operations, and the pursuit of economic and geopolitical dominance that have shaped the conflict's trajectory.

From the Mujahideen to the Taliban: A History of Allied Convenience

During the Soviet-Afghan War (1979-1989),the United States and its allies, including Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, supported the Afghan Mujahideen, a coalition of anti-Soviet rebels. The Mujahideen received vast amounts of weapons, training, and financial aid, fueled in part by the Reagan administration's Cold War agenda.

However, following the Soviet withdrawal, Pakistan and the US, with the complicity of Saudi Arabia, saw a new opportunity in the Taliban, a fundamentalist Islamist group that emerged as a dominant force in Afghanistan. The Taliban's strict interpretation of Sharia law and their willingness to provide a safe haven for Al-Qaeda made them a convenient ally in the post-9/11 era.

Oil Interests: The Unseen Player

Beneath the surface of the GWOT lies a deeper motive: the control of oil resources. Afghanistan, situated at the crossroads of Central and South Asia, is believed to possess vast untapped oil and gas reserves estimated to be worth trillions of dollars.

Western powers, particularly the United States, have long sought access to these resources. The construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline, proposed in the early 2000s, would have provided a direct route for gas to reach international markets. However, the pipeline's development has been hampered by insecurity and political instability in Afghanistan.

Perpetual War: A Sinister Strategy

The perpetual war in Afghanistan has been beneficial to various actors, including the military-industrial complex, private security contractors, and intelligence agencies. The ongoing conflict has fueled a lucrative arms industry, creating a vested interest in the continuation of hostilities.

Moreover, the presence of foreign troops in Afghanistan has provided a pretext for large-scale intelligence operations, including the use of drones and surveillance technologies. The collection of sensitive data and the ability to influence political developments in the region have become strategic assets for imperial powers.

Consequences: A Devastated Nation and Broken People

While imperial powers have pursued their agendas, the people of Afghanistan have borne the brunt of the conflict. Countless lives have been lost, villages destroyed, and the fabric of Afghan society torn apart.

The war has also fueled corruption, instability, and the rise of extremist groups. Afghanistan remains one of the poorest and most dangerous countries in the world, with rampant poverty, illiteracy, and lack of basic infrastructure.

: Unmasking the Imperialist Agenda

The Global War on Terror in Afghanistan has been a complex and insidious conflict, driven by imperialistic ambitions, oil interests, and the perpetuation of perpetual war. The shifting alliances, covert operations, and pursuit of economic and geopolitical dominance have prolonged the suffering of the Afghan people.

To truly understand the Afghanistan war, we must lift the veil of counterterrorism rhetoric and expose the hidden motivations that have fueled this disastrous conflict. It is time to question the narratives of imperial powers, demand accountability, and work towards a just and sustainable future for the people of Afghanistan.
