It's All About Blood Money
Afghanistan War Planned Months Before Suicide Air Attacks Motive is Oil Profits for Multinational War Partners May be tied to OKC blast and Operation Northwoods.
FOLLOW THE MONEY - CIA proprietaries in Oil Industry profit from war
911 - A FAMILY AFFAIR - Two CIA Directors have cozy 'relations' with bin Laden
'Only those powerful men who know the truth will profit, and every American will have paid for it with their souls, some with their blood...'
The BBC and an Indian news agency in seperate stories, one months before and one shortly after the suicide air attack on America, have presented the most horrendous picture to date regarding the true nature of the terror in NYC and elsewhere:
Prior knowledge. Links to these stories are contained herein.
Those backing President Bush's request for a coalition had better make certain they are getting their fair share of the spoils of war, a war arranged months before the suicide air attacks against the US. A pact for war against the Taliban was made between the United States, CIS (Russia), Pakistan, and India to facilitate a Middle-East to S.E. Asia Oil Pipeline, which cannot take place with growing political and religious upheaval in the region at the hands of the Taliban. Iran is thought to be a covert member to the pact. The combat was initially slated for mid October, which would seem to account for warnings that preparing for war will take time.
The problem is that the ONLY logical pipeline route runs for nearly a thousand miles along the Afghanistan border with Iran and Pakistan, (largely so close as to be visible from the border. This route would seem to provide the US with the best incentive to date to cooperate with Iran by, in essence, competing with a proposed Chinese backed oil pipeline project serving the same oil fields in northern Iran and points south, preventing China from obtaining a defacto monopoly holder on oil supplies for SE Asia. The Chinese began negotiating that project in 1997, causing a great deal of consternation for the Clinton administration and major US oil companies who stood to gain little in the project.
However, the Taliban are fomenting both religious and political instability in the region between Iranian and Pakistani Shiites and Taliban Sunni Islamic sects, with notable success. This unrest makes impractical the financial investment and international cooperation required to construct the pipeline.
The solution was apparantly to be death warrants for both the Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, and capitalistic terrorist Osama bin Laden, who had apparantly grown too profitable and too strong for his former CIA masters and American business partners to control. Destruction of the Taliban was imperative, but political needs would not permit a simple solution.
For Pakistan and India, long bitter rivals, to partner would require only sufficient profits to make peace between them more palatable. However, Pakistan required a significant motive beyond profits to risk internal conflict due to its nation's divided religious and political landscape, all intertwined with allegiances to the Taliban. There needed to be an extremely irresistible reason for the nation's leadership to back/support military action against what their own citizens considered a virtual spiritual ally.
In like manner, Iran required an irresistible reason to publicly support with vocal blessings American interests in any such action, and at the same time, needed a way to salve bitter wounds between the two countries which would allow future joint financial ventures.
In similar manner, the United States needed a very powerful and irresistible reason to mobilize America into supporting such a war, a war which would be extremely difficult to prosecute, as the Soviet Union could testify of first hand, having found the Soviet-Afghanistan war to be their "Vietnam."
The logical solution which would indeed provide irresistible reasons for all concerned, would now seem to be the horrific terror campaign against the NYC and Washington DC by former CIA strong man, Osama bin Laden, who perhaps is still on the payroll after all. The question is, if the war was being secretely planned by the administration... a war which could not be sold to Americans without such a catastrophic event... then who really planned the 911 event?
The attack comes in the wake of revelations by author James Bamford in his book Body of Evidence of a secret plan for US military intelligence operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American targets... blow up buildings, shoot down civilian airliners, blow up American war ships, and assassinate American citizens... for political gain. Operation Northwoods was signed off by all five Joint Chiefs of Staff under the Kennedy administration as a way to foment public support for a war against Cuba, who would be blamed for the terrorist acts. Rejected sternly by President Kennedy, which may have contributed to reasons behind his assassination, this Reichtag fire approach to political gain may have been the model for September 11, shifting the blame this time to the Taliban homeland. What would make a more irresistible excuse for war?
In light of these revelations, American media needs to decide if it will continue to ignore truth and the principles of journalism for its preferred role as Fourth Estate PR spokesperson of government. Will they tell America these facts or hide what the rest of the world already knows through news agencies which have no such loyalties?
Will American politicians find themselves being asked by their constituents if they knew in advance of this death pact, and have the blood of innocents on their hands as coconspirators, or will they demand a full accounting of the facts before signing off on the blood lust boiling over as result of this war plot?

The first is a BBC story of a former Pakistani diplomat coming forward to tell of his country's knowledge of the planned war, concerned perhaps that the air attacks were not as advertised:
US 'planned attack on Taleban'
The wider objective was to oust the Taleban
By the BBC's George Arney
A former Pakistani diplomat has told the BBC that the US was planning military action against Osama Bin Laden and the Taleban even before last week's attacks.
Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October.
Mr Naik said US officials told him of the plan at a UN-sponsored international contact group on Afghanistan which took place in Berlin.
Mr Naik told the BBC that at the meeting the US representatives told him that unless Bin Laden was handed over swiftly America would take military action to kill or capture both Bin Laden and the Taleban leader, Mullah Omar.
The wider objective, according to Mr Naik, would be to topple the Taleban regime and install a transitional government of moderate Afghans in its place - possibly under the leadership of the former Afghan King Zahir Shah.
Mr Naik was told that Washington would launch its operation from bases in Tajikistan, where American advisers were already in place.
He was told that Uzbekistan would also participate in the operation and that 17,000 Russian troops were on standby.
Mr Naik was told that if the military action went ahead it would take place before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.
He said that he was in no doubt that after the World Trade Center bombings this pre-existing US plan had been built upon and would be implemented within two or three weeks.
And he said it was doubtful that Washington would drop its plan even if Bin Laden were to be surrendered immediately by the Taleban.
The above article confirms the second, which was written by an Indian news agency months before the attack and is much more detailed.
India in anti-Taliban military plan
India and Iran will "facilitate" the planned US-Russia hostilities against the Taliban.
By Our Correspondent
26 June 2001: India and Iran will "facilitate" US and Russian plans for "limited military action" against the Taliban if the contemplated tough new economic sanctions don't bend Afghanistan's fundamentalist regime.
The Taliban controls 90 per cent of Afghanistan and is advancing northward along the Salang highway and preparing for a rear attack on the opposition Northern Alliance from Tajikistan-Afghanistan border positions.
Indian foreign secretary Chokila Iyer attended a crucial session of the second Indo-Russian joint working group on Afghanistan in Moscow amidst increase of Taliban's military activity near the Tajikistan border. And, Russia's Federal Security Bureau (the former KGB) chief Nicolai Patroshev is visiting Teheran this week in connection with Taliban's military build-up.
Indian officials say that India and Iran will only play the role of "facilitator" while the US and Russia will combat the Taliban from the front with the help of two Central Asian countries, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, to push Taliban lines back to the 1998 position 50 km away from Mazar-e-Sharief city in northern Afghanistan.
Military action will be the last option though it now seems scarcely avoidable with the UN banned from Taliban-controlled areas. The UN which adopted various means in the last four years to resolve the Afghan problem is now being suspected by the Taliban and refused entry into Taliban areas of the war-ravaged nation through a decree issued by Taliban chief Mullah Mohammad Omar last month.
Diplomats say that the anti-Taliban move followed a meeting between US Secretary of State Collin Powel and Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov and later between Powell and Indian foreign minister Jaswant Singh in Washington. Russia, Iran and India have also held a series of discussions and more diplomatic activity is expected.
The Northern Alliance led by ousted Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani and his military commander Ahmed Shah Masood have mustered Western support during a May 2001 visit to Dusseldorf, Germany.
The Taliban is using high-intensity rockets and Soviet-made tanks to attack Northern Alliance fighters in the Hindukush range with alleged Pakistani aid. But Northern Alliance fighters have acquired anti-tank missiles from a third country that was used in the fight near Bagram Air Base in early June. The Taliban lost 20 fighters and fled under intense attack.
Officials say that the Northern Alliance requires a "clean up" operation to reduce Taliban's war-fighting machinery to launch an attack against the Taliban advance to the Tajik-Afghan border. This "clean up" action is being planned by the US and Russia since the Taliban shows no "sign of reconciliation".
Tajikistan and Uzbekistan will lead the ground attack with a strong military back up of the US and Russia. Vital Taliban installations and military assets will be targeted. India and Iran will provide logistic support. Russian President Vladimir Putin has already hinted of military action against the Taliban to CIS nation heads during a meeting in Moscow in early June.
India and Iran have been assisting the Northern Alliance and the Afghan people under their humanitarian programme since Taliban's ouster of the Rabbani government in 1996. The US needs Russian assistance because of Soviet knowledge of the Afghan terrain. The former Soviet Union intervened in Afghanistan in 1979 and withdrew in 1989.
Masood's strategic stronghold of Panjsher valley has been threatened by the advancing Taliban militia for the last three months. The Northern Alliance has stepped up its attack on Taliban troops who have brought the valley within artillery fire range.
Military planners say that if Taliban were not given a blow now it would slowly make inroads into the Panjsher valley. The fall of Panjsher will enable Taliban to control the remaining 10 per cent of Afghanistan in possession of the Northern Alliance.
Russia says it has evidence that the Taliban aims to create "liberated zones" all across Central Asia and Russia and links its Chechnya problem to the rise of Taliban fundamentalism. The US is directly hit by the anti-US thrust of Islamic groups who use Afghanistan as their base for terrorism and is demanding extradition of Osama Bin Laden to face trial in the embassy bombing case.
Such Central Asian countries as Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan are threatened by the Taliban that is aiming to control their vast oil, gas and other resources by bringing Islamic fundamentalists into power. Now all the CIS nations are seeking assistance of Russia's Federal Border Guard Service to overcome the Taliban threat.
General Konstantin Trotsky, director of the border force, said in a newspaper interview, "We are watching the opposition of the Northern Alliance and the Taliban in Afghanistan very closely."
For its part, Shia Iran is reluctant to tolerate a Sunni militia regime on its border that gives Pakistan, a Sunni country and a sponsor of the Taliban, a "strategic sway" on considerable parts of the Iranian border. Iran is also affected by a Taliban-sponsored movement in Ispahan province where Sunnis have a sizable population.
Iran is also worried over the unending war effort of the Taliban to get supremacy in Afghanistan that is harming Iran's economic interests. India, Iran and Russia, for example, are working on a broad plan to supply oil and gas to south Asia and southeast Asian nations through India but instability in Afghanistan is posing a great threat to this effort.
Similarly, India is apprehensive about the increasing infiltration of Afghan-trained foreign mercenaries into Kashmir. Security agencies have reported that as many as 15,000 hardcore militants have received training in such places in Afghanistan as Khost, Jalalabad, Kabul and Kandahar since 1995. There are 55 terrorist training camps located in Afghanistan that are funded and aided by Islamic fundamentalists to carry out attacks against non-Islamic nations.
The UN had sent a 12-member delegation to India in the first week of May to assess the feasibility of tough economic sanctions against Taliban. The same delegation met General Pervez Musharraf to convince him about the importance of Pakistani cooperation. The UN believes that the sanctions can be only as tough as Pakistan desires.
India's official position is for a "peaceful and lasting solution" to the Afghan problem. But it strongly advocates strict economic sanctions against Taliban and is also not averse to a "limited military action" to weaken it.
India plans to raise the Afghanistan issue in the forthcoming G-8 summit in Geneva in mid-July.

'America will undoubtedly have its unstoppable war thanks to the Fourth Estate, but at what price?' asks Mr. Sweeney. 'Only those powerful men who know the truth will profit, and every American will have paid for it with their souls, others with their blood." He adds that "It is extremely ironic that this plan comes so close on the heels of the release of the James Bond film, The World is Not Enough, which parallels many of the key elements of the underlying story."
