In the name of Allah Most Merciful Most Gracious

WAR STRATEGY NEEDS TO CHANGE TO NEGOTIATION STRATEGY A SIGNED BILATERAL SECURITY AGREEMENT WILL PROVIDE LEGAL AUTHORITY FOR THE UNITED STATE’S PERMANENT MILITARY BASES IN AFGHANISTAN WHICH WILL BE USED TO SECURE AND ULTIMATELY CONTROL THE VAST UNTAPPED RARE EARTH ELEMENTS (REEs) AND OTHER MINERALS DISCOVERED IN AFGHANISTAN;
THESE REEs AND OTHER MINERALS ARE WORTH TRILLIONS; ALL AFGHANS MUST BENEFIT FROM THIS GOD-GIVEN MINERAL WEALTH AND NOT JUST THE WAR LORDS, CORRUPT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, DRUG TRAFFICKERS AND FOREIGNERS
The past twelve years of war has only caused suffering and blood shed. I think that the signing of a Bilateral Security Agreement by Karzai and the United States will only lead to more blood shed. The Afghan people have suffered enough these past three decades. The American people have suffered enough because of this war.
More war and blood shed are not the solution. At this juncture, I believe the best approach for the United States government to take is to first hold sincere peace negotiations with the Afghan Resistance. I think these negotiations can be successful if there is no interference by the war profiteers and neighboring countries with their own agendas, who want to keep the war going.
Then I believe the Afghan people can reunite and work together with the United States to make Afghanistan a peaceful and stable country where the REEs and other minerals can be developed to benefit all Afghans, the United States and the world. If the U.S. negotiates with Karzai to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement and the majority of Afghans are pushed to the sideline, I fear there will not be security and peace no matter how many permanent military bases remain in Afghanistan. The approach has to change to a peace approach from the present war approach, the please and throw boat loads of money to war lords approach and the sideline the majority of Afghans approach. I believe it simply will not work.
I believe that the U.S. government wants to force Pashtuns, who are the majority and native people of Afghanistan, out of Afghanistan, our homeland. I believe they want to especially remove Pashtuns from areas where the Rare Earth Elements (REEs) and other minerals are located. I believe the majority of the current Afghan government, drug traffickers and other war profiteers are helping and allowing this to happen. Just take a look at what is happening to the Afghan villages and villagers located in these areas especially where the vast deposits of REEs are located in Helmand Province.
Communist China has the other largest deposit of REEs discovered to date. Those vast untapped REEs and other minerals are used for defense systems and technology. They are the most valuable resources in the world. They are worth trillions of dollars. Control of those areas with those REEs are seen by the superpowers as vital. I believe that is one of the main reasons why the United States wants to have its permanent military bases in Afghanistan. By bombing and destroying villages and agriculture, and contaminating the water and soil with uranium from their weapons, they are forcing Pashtun and other Afghans to leave these areas.
I believe they want to contain Pashtun in the tribal areas, which is the same tactic the Israeli government has done to the Palestinians in GAZA and West Bank areas. I believe it is in the best interests of the American and Afghan people if the United States stops its current approach of war against the villagers in these areas , who are fed up with the corrupt Karzai government and sick of the war and occupation by the United Sates. Entering into agreements with the present corrupt government and with war lords, drug traffickers is not the proper way to work out a deal regarding the REEs with the Pashtun villagers, who do not see the Karzai government as legitimate nor respect it. I believe the present approach will only back fire and not be in the long term best interests of Americans and Afghans.
In order to control Afghanistan’s REEs and other minerals, I believe the United States is using weak and greedy puppet Afghans to divide Afghans. This division causes Afghans to not pay attention to what is really happening especially in 2014 and beyond. This division is causing Afghans not to pay attention to their vast untapped mineral wealth, which is and will be exploited. I believe that Afghanistan’s territorial integrity, its vast untapped REEs and other minerals and its native, majority population, the Afghans/Pashtuns, are in jeopardy.
In 2014 and beyond, I believe the new war approach that the United States and NATO will be using, small groups of special operation soldiers and CIA paramilitary troops against Afghans, especially Pashtun villagers, will only cause more blood shed and division and not lead to peace and stability. I think that Afghanistan and the world can only benefit from the vast untapped REEs and mineral wealth, if there is stability and true peace, so that the most efficient extraction and mining methods can be used. Everyone will be able to benefit from this mineral wealth and not just war lords, corrupt officials and foreigners.
I believe a true peace approach and not a war approach needs to be used. I believe to achieve true peace in our homeland Afghans need to wake up and unite and through lawful means take back the control of the Afghan government. I believe Afghans need a government free of systemic corruption and foreign influence. I believe Afghans need to pay attention to the vast untapped REEs and minerals to make sure that the ordinary Afghans benefit from them.
Through peaceful means Afghans need to make their voices heard and not let a few communist war criminals, corrupt government officials like Karzai, drug traffickers and war profiteers speak for the Afghans and control Afghans’ futures and the future of the enormous mineral wealth? I believe the United States government needs to change its approach now and sincerely work with the majority of Afghan people. The game playing needs to stop.
As our group has proposed numerous times to the U.S. Department of State officials, UNAMA and the United Nations members, (see our peace plan), the first step to true peace is for the U.S. government to have sincere peace negotiations with the Afghan resistance. After successful negotiations, which I believe can happen, Afghans can then work together to elect the patriotic, educated and respected Afghans, who are not criminals, drug traffickers, war profiteers and/or traitors.
I believe an election in 2014 will not work because the same war lords, war profiteers and same puppets are running for election. I believe it will be more of the same corrupt government, which benefits only the few Afghan war profiteers, war lords, foreigners and not the super majority of the Afghan people. Many of the same Afghans, who have citizenship with other foreign countries, such as the United States are running again for president. That is not allowed in the United Sates.
There cannot be fair and open elections in a country that does not have true peace and one which has a corrupt government controlling the election process. I believe if the proposed election goes forward, there will unfortunately be a lot of blood shed and chaos, which I hate to see happen.
Again, Afghans especially Pashtuns need to unite and work together to achieve peace through lawful means and to safeguard the extremely valuable REEs, earth materials and other natural resources. We want all Afghans presently and in future generations to benefit from this vast God-given mineral wealth and not just a few puppet Afghans, war lords, drug traffickers, foreigners and war profiteers, who are greedily controlling everything now.
I believe Afghans need to wake up before it is too late and unite to peacefully stop this corruption, bloodshed and genocide, and divide and conquer tactics. Afghans need to peacefully work together now to ensure a government which is best for all Afghans in 2014 and beyond. For the past twelve years, war profiteers, war lords, and corrupt officials have been and still are looking out for themselves. I believe the minority, war profiteers, should not be allowed to sideline the majority, Afghans.
Thank you to all Afghans and others, who are working for true peace and unity.
