Let us remember: America's war crimes against Serbia were committed, last but not least, to secure Kosovo's mineral resources for American interests. "Kosovo posse-sses the Stari [Trg] mining complex. The contents are greater than 30% lead and zinc with total reserves of two million tons. It also contains more than 17 billion tons of coal reserves. The claimed value is said to be $3.5 Trillion dollars. Exports go to a 'New York' firm. It seems logical that the ownership of the complex will be 'negotiable' if 'democracy' should be installed in Kosovo and Serbia. This alone should explain why the government is so interested in Kosovo." (1)
The Afghan soil bears vast coal-, oil-, and gas deposits. Over and above that the land of the Taliban is rich on lapis lazuli precious stones reserves. The American global player UNICOL has invested in a gas- and oil pipeline from Turkmenistan via Pakistan to Afghanistan in order to exploit Afghanistan's mineral reserves. UNICOL's investment represents only the start of a gigantic global deal. The global players believe that their investment could only be sufficiently secured by an American military presence. In order to steal Afghanistan's mineral assets America justifies its military muscle by all means at its disposal.

|US 'planned attack on 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.
Israel's Mossad could be behind the US attacks: Syrian paper
Damascus, Sept 19, 2001
A Syrian government paper on Wednesday cast doubts over the involvement of Osama bin Laden in the September 11 attacks in the United States, saying Israel's secret service Mossad was a more likely culprit.
De Borchgrave: So who did Black Sept. 11?
Gul: Mossad and its accomplices. ...Mossad and its American associates are the obvious culprits. Who benefits from the crime? The attacks against the twin towers started at 8:45 a.m. and four flights are diverted from their assigned air space and no air traffic controller sounds the alarm. And no Air Force jets scramble until 10 a.m. That also smacks of a small scale Air Force rebellion, a coup against the Pentagon perhaps? Radars are jammed, transponders fail. No IFF -- friend or foe identification -- challenge. In Pakistan, if there is no response to IFF, jets are instantly scrambled and the aircraft is shot down with no further questions asked. This was clearly an inside job. Bush was afraid and rushed to the shelter of a nuclear bunker. He clearly feared a nuclear situation. Who could that have been? Will that also be hushed up in the investigation, like the Warren report after the Kennedy assassi-nation?
