No, this isn't really sufficient reason for planning such an audacious hoax as 9/11.
So what else is there is Afghanistan apart from the oil?
What about the drugs?
Opium and hashish is basically all they grow in Afghanistan these days. And is it a coincidence that the Taliban banned and began eradicating the opium fields in the months prior to the event of 9/11? Before this action by the Taliban the country was producing 70% of the world's supply of opium. Now the Americans and their allies are in the country this has actually increased to 93%. And is it also a coincidence that the US joined forces with the Northern Alliance who opposed the opium ban and that Osama Bin Laden himself has been identified as a previous drugs trafficker while raising funds for the opposition against Russian occupation?
And what about the myriad of rumours of the involvement of the Mafia in US politics? It all falls rather too neatly in place.
The US has been somewhat lax in its drug eradication policy to date. In 2005 the US committed $780 million towards this end but what is this compared to the $100’s of billions the drugs trade generates in the US alone?
However despite of this commitment by the following year, 2006, opium production had actually increased in Afghanistan by some 59%. Indeed the chief of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime has stated that it would take some 20 years for the Afghan economy to properly adjust itself such that opium production can be completely phased out.
But this is nonsense surely? The US and its allies have gone to war against the same people who successfully eradicated the drug in 2001. The Taliban officially outlawed opium production in 2000 and by 2001 the eradication program had been largely a complete success. Indeed the United Nations Drugs Control Program (UNDCP) noted that in 2001 opium production in Afghanistan was insignificant having previously produced 70% of the world’s supply.
