Is the Maoist Communist China becoming a partner of U.S. imperialism in Afghanistan?
By Abdul Kadir Mohmand
The puppet Ashrarf Ghani was not elected by the Afghan majority, but “selected” by the U.S. government by Secretary John Kerry. Ghani has no legal authority to execute any bilateral security agreement on behalf of the Afghan people with any country . The majority of the Afghan people do not want any foreign military bases and foreign troops on their soil.
I strongly believe that the United States and China are going to cooperate in Afghanistan to achieve their main goal there of controlling and taking Afghanistan’s natural resources, its vast untapped deposits of Rare Earth Elements (REEs) like lithium, which is worth trillions and vital to technology and defense systems. The United States is indebted to China and needs money to mine and control the Afghan people’s resources. The U.S. is now in a financial mess because of the cost of its long war and occupation of Afghanistan. It needs China’s help. Whereas, the United States already occupies Afghanistan with its U.S. “selected” Afghan puppets governments in place and plans to keep its military bases and troops there and to stop the majority of the Afghan people from resisting foreign occupation and plundering their natural resources
The United States can help China with that aspect. China and NATO will also finance the Afghan military and police and put its military boots on the ground (so-called trainers, advisers, and support staff), to perpetuate foreign occupation. At this time, I believe these two superpowers rather cooperate than go to war over the Afghan people’s natural resources. However, I believe greed will ultimately and sadly lead to war and a downward spiral for these superpowers..
Facts on the ground in Afghanistan in the past 14 years already reveal that superpowers’ main goal. It is not about rebuilding Afghanistan; it is not about helping and educating Afghan women or children; it is not about bringing peace, democracy or stability in Afghanistan; it is not about caring about the lives of the Afghan people. The only Afghan lives the U.S. cares about are the lives of its selected Afghan puppet governments , war profiteers , warlords and communist war criminals, who play the superpowers’ game and sell their namoos (the motherland) and her resources for a dollar.
It is really about Afghanistan’s untapped natural resources especially its REEs. It is about superpowers’ goals and objectives in Afghanistan and protection of their stooges in the Afghan political scene. It is about these superpowers keeping long term military presence. It is about selecting and controlling the Afghan puppet government so that they control and ultimately steal these resources to the detriment of the Afghan majority. It is obvious that any Afghans, who are obstacles to their plan and get in their way, will be labeled “terrorists, extremists or radicals” in the media and eliminated one way or the other.
Other than the United States’ Afghan government puppets, communist war criminals and war profiteers who will financially and politically profit, what will the Afghan majority get from this U.S. and China cooperation? They will get: long term presence of foreign troops and the superpowers’ private mercenaries on Afghan soil; long term environmental contamination and pollution; increased rates of cancer, birth defects and still births owing to the byproducts of mining and war weaponry; more Afghans as political prisoners ; their villages, in the REE rich areas such as Helmand , bombed amd bulldozed; the killing, raping and forced re-locations of Afghan villagers if they resist the foreign occupation and theft of their resources; more suffering and poverty; more ethnic cleansing and genocide; more corrupt puppet governments and illicit drug trafficking; more disgusting and wealthier communist war criminals, drug traffickers and war lords; more sex trafficking and prostitution; more disrespect of the Afghan majority’s culture and religion; more divide and conquer; and more violence and drones .
To make everything look nice, the superpowers talk about peace negotiations with the Afghan resistance. However, if China wants to be involved in true peace negotiations in Afghanistan, then it needs to bring the United States and NATO to the table with the Afghan Freedom Fighters, who represent the Afghan majority. Ashraf Ghani is just a U.S. hand- picked puppet, who is acting like a beggar on his recent trips to Saudi Arabia and Turkey. As the past has shown, I believe that the Afghan Freedom Fighters will not sit at the negotiation table with these Afghan puppets. I think that if true peace is the goal of the superpowers then the superpowers will sit at the peace table with the Afghan Freedom Fighters. I want true peace and unity, but sadly I just see more game playing by the United States and other superpowers.
Ashraf Ghani has no legal authority to represent Afghanistan because he is the “selected” not elected puppet of the Secretary John Kerry. Puppet Ghani went to China and Saudi Arabia trying to sell his motherland “namoos” and begging for money. Ghani and the ethnic minority warlords have no authority to sell the Afghans’ Rare Earth Elements (REEs), the mining rights, to the United States, China, Saudi Arabia , Turkey, India or any other entity. Afghanistan has had a long time friendship with China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and India, but I am afraid that these puppets are going to destroy these relationships because they are being maneuvered by the United States and its goals and interests.
The Ghani government is an Afghan puppet government, which is selected and controlled by the U.S. government. The U.S. needs its Afghan puppets, who are war profiteers, warlords, drug traffickers and communist war criminals to achieve its own goals in Afghanistan, which are:
(1) The main goal to control and have long term direct access over the Afghan people’s vast untapped deposits of Rare Earth Elements (REEs) such as lithium, which are worth trillions and crucial to technology and defense systems; (2) To have nine (9) permanent U.S. military bases in Afghanistan, the Heart of Central Asia, which are located at the United States’ post-Soviet, new outer defense perimeter; and (3) for other geopolitical reasons such as U.S. control of the highly profitable illicit drug trafficking business. There is evidence that it is not about the U.S. government “stopping” the drug trafficking, but just the opposite.
During the past thirteen plus years, it appears that in order to achieve its goals the U.S. government has been trying to eliminate the native population, the Pashtuns, who are fighting for their independence and to keep its resources for their own people. It is obvious that the U.S. government is trying to eliminate the Pashtun tribes, which are the largest native tribes in the world. Anyone, who has knowledge about what is happening on the ground, knows that the Pashtun tribal leaders , Pashtun intellectuals and Afghan religious leaders are being killed and eliminated by the U.S. and its domestic puppets with their weapon of choice being drones. The Pashtun villagers are being raped, killed and forced out of their homes after their villages are bulldozed or bombed, especially in the Helmand region because the Pashtun’s land contains the largest untapped REEs worth trillions. The U.S. and its puppets are destroying their villages, killing those who defend themselves, raping the women and children and forcing them to leave. These tactics sound really familiar to me. Is China going to cooperate and participate in these war crimes because of its thirst for REEs and other resources?
I believe history does repeat itself. This U.S. imperialistic campaign of genocide against the native Pashtun tribes and the theft of the Pashtun’s homeland and REEs is exactly what the United States has done to the Native American tribes in the U.S. in the past centuries. The U.S. tactics of killing the leaders of the Native American tribes, who resisted occupation, is being implemented today in the Pashutn villages. The U.S. tactics of forced re-location , theft of the native tribe’s land, rich in valuable resources, and divide and conquer are being implemented against the native Pashtun tribes, who pose a credible threat to the United States’ supremacy in Afghanistan. Is China going to participate in this imperialistic campaign against the Afghan majority?
It reminds me of the forced relocation of the Cherokee Native American tribe, who resisted the U.S. invader/occupier in the 19th century. In 1824-25, the U.S. killed the Cherokee leaders, seized the valuable Cherokee land, and forced the Cherokees to relocate to undesirable, strange land called the “Indian territory.” This war crime is referred to as the “Trail of Tears”. Does this sound familiar? Now, a few greedy Afghan traitors are signing agreements with the U.S., Pashtun land rich in REEs is being seized with villages destroyed , Pashtun tribal leaders are being killed, and Pashtuns are being forcefully relocated to “tribal” territory.
History has shown that Afghanistan is the grave yard of the superpowers because the Native Afghans, who are the majority, cherish their freedom and never surrender when foreign troops are on their soil. I hate violence and war. I only want true peace in Afghanistan and an end to war, but honestly I do not see that happening as long as the U.S. continues with its present policy of divide and conquer and exclusion of the Afghan majority and especially if China joins with the U.S. to control and steal Afghanistan’s REEs. The United States’ “selected” leader from the outside, Ghani, will not be accepted by the Afghan majority, who will not talk peace with the puppet or his selected cabinet. Unfortunately with the new puppet government of ethnic minorities, war lords, communist war criminals like Rashid Dostum and Hanif Atmar and drug traffickers, it will just be more of the same- corruption, drug trafficking, the stealing of the Afghans REEs, violence and war.
Four decades of suffering is enough for the Afghan people. I hope that the U.S. government changes its policy in Afghanistan. As you know, during the past two centuries, the superpowers, the British, the Soviet Union and now the United States and NATO lost wars in Afghanistan. I hope that China does not meddle in Afghanistan’s internal affairs and does not cause more divisions and sufferings of the Afghan people. I believe partnering with the U.S. to control and basically steal the Afghan majority’s REEs and natural resources is not the right path to take. Greed only leads to suffering and a downward fall. It has toppled all great empires throughout history.

On an UNESCO scholarship, Mr. Mohmand studied at Sofia University, Bulgaria from 1976 until 1978 when his studies were interrupted by the Communist seizure of power in Afghanistan. The new Afghan Communist government ordered the Bulgarian government to return him to Afghanistan because he was anti-communist. Mr. Mohmand requested political asylum. With the help of the United Nations and the U.S. Embassy, he arrived to Italy and then the United States in 1979.
Mr. Mohmand returned to his studies and earned his B.S. in 1983 from Western Michigan University. He found employment in various positions in the engineering business. For many years, he worked for BFI and was country operations manager for BFI Italia. Currently, Mr. Mohmand owns a shopping center and develops commercial properties.
During the 1980s, Mr. Mohmand was the Representative of the Afghan Mujahideen for North America. During the 1980s, Mr. Mohmand returned to Afghanistan to fight as a freedom fighter against the Soviets and Afghan communists. Through an arrangement with Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Mr. Mohmand would bring back wounded Afghan children and Mujahideen for medical treatment at Borgess and recuperation in his home in Kalamazoo. He formed and was president of a nonprofit, Aid for Afghanistan.
In the 1980s, Mr. Mohmand also worked with the Committee for a Free Afghanistan in Washington D.C to bring wounded Afghans to the United States for medical treatment.
For the past four decades Mr. Mohmand has dedicated his life to working to achieve true peace and stability in Afghanistan.
A few years ago, Mr. Mohmand organized educated Afghans intellectuals across the world who drafted a comprehensive plan for peace. Presently, he has united many different Afghan peace organizations under one umbrella. The goal of this network is to unite Afghans to bring true peace in and the independence of Afghanistan. This network wants to be the bridge between the Afghan freedom fighters and the silent Afghan majority, and the Western World in any peace negotiations.
Mr. Mohmand wants true peace and stability in Afghanistan. As a veteran of war, Mr. Mohmand hates war.
