The following books written by American authors provide a clue about the real causes for war in Afghanistan after the departure of Soviet troops, that this War was for the interest of US OIL and Gas conglomerates, who had acquired mineral rights in newly liberated Central Asian States but had no way bring out the oil/gas to the sea without a pipeline: .

2002. "Nuclear Cities and a Pipeline War," by Michael Welch, Home Power
Magazine # 87, pages 102-105, Feb/March 2002. [After the demise of Soviet Union, the American Energy conglomerates had their eyes set on the Oil and Gas Resources located in newly liberated Asian Republics in Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. They approached the ruling elite and obtained concessions to get Oil and Gas from those reserves. But there was one other hurdle to bring the liquid gold to the market that it required building a 1000 miles long pipeline passing through Afghanistan and ending up in the Arabian sea through Pakistan, It offered a lucrative market not only abroad but also in Pakistan and India. Thus the next thing to safeguard their investments was to obtain rights for American military bases with the excuse that they will protect these new states from the Russian bear next door. After this they had to deal with the Taliban government in power at that time, to protect the interests of UNOCAL (now a part of BP), interested in the pipeline project. But the smell of money brought another company from Argentina, named Bridas (fourth largest energy group in Latin America) as their competitor, which was going to spoil the British-American game. Both competitors set their offices in Islamabad hoping to win the pipeline contract. They offered better terms to Taliban to sway them away from UNOCAL. Finally on July 17, 2001, a final meeting was held in Berlin between Taliban and Northern Alliance was held but Taliban representative never showed up. The reason for this was a stormy meeting organized by UN Security Council, during which the American representative threatened the Taliban by saying, " Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs." That was it, and the rest is history, and the Taliban representative never showed up after having been intimidated by the American military threat option].

The former Foreign Minister of Pakistan Niaz Naik, who was also present there, recounted that a U.S. official had threatened, "Either you accept our (UNOCAL, now a part of BP vs. Bridas of Argentina) offer of gold (to build the Turkmenstan-Afghanistan-Pakistan Oil/Gas Pipeline), or we bury you under a carpet of bombs." The Taliban representative walked out, and the rest is History. Indeed after September 11, Afghanistan has been carpet bombed.

Promises to Support U.S. Page 255: Mid-September 2001 B): Israel and U.S. Plan to Steal Nuclear Weapons from Pakistan: According toof the New Yorker, October 29, 2001, a few days after 9/11 members of the elite Israeli counter-terrorism unit 'Sayeret Matkal' arrive in the U.S. and begin training with U.S. Special Forces in a Secret Location. The two groups are developing contingency plans to attack Pakistan's military bases and remove its nuclear weapons if the government or the nuclear weapons fall into the wrong hands. Japan Times, November 10, 2001 said, "There may have been threats to enact this plan on September 13, 2001. The newspaper later notes that this "threat to divest Pakistan of its 'crown jewels' was cleverly used by the U.S., first to force Musharraf to support its military campaign in Afghanistan, and then to warn would-be coup-plotters against Musharraf." (It was the beginning of entry of BlackWater in Pakistan). Page 254: On September 13, (after this threat was conveyed to Mush via U.S. Ambassador, Wendy Chamberlain, and putting forth 7 Demands (as mentioned by Mush in his own memoir book "In The Line of Fire," and Mush accepted all 7 demand, including handing over 4 Pakistani Air-bases, without any hesitancy) the airport in Islamabad, is shut down for the day. LA Weekly of Nov. 9, 2001 reported that Israel and India threatened to attack Pakistan and take control of its nuclear weapons if Pakistan did not side with the U.S., and the rest is cunning history.
