Abstract:  Published not long after 9/11 and the illegal U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, this issue takes a radical look at the underlying purpose of this war and the military occupation that followed. To understand the real economic and geopolitical reasons for this war, it is necessary to realise that the vast oil and natural gas reserves of Central Asia, particularly around the Caspian Sea, are highly-coveted by the US and others. Afghanistan is needed as a ruote for a pipeline to get these resources to the Persian Gulf so that they can be shipped to market.
