Does anyone else here follow the Pipeline Wars?

Have you ever heard of TAPI, the Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, & India Pipeline? How about the IPI, the Iran, Pakistan, India Pipeline? Growing population and thus energy demands in India and China, and those who want to be the ones who supply it are definitely playing a major role in the mis-adventures in Afghanistan and Iran. Mix a little currency wars in with the energy wars, and you get what we have now...political cover to take out the "evil terrorists" and open markets for US and European corporations and financial institutions.

I'm looking for Condoleeza Rice to make some sort of move in the near future since she used to be a former member of the board of directors for Chevron (a big player in TAPI), and also headed Chevron's committee on public policy until she resigned on January 15, 2001, to become National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush.

I think our troops will remain in Afghanistan as long as necessary to protect "our" interests. I speculate all the activity in Pakistan has something to do with this too.

I started a thread on this topic if anyone wants to continue the discussion.
