18 years after NATO’s invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, the 9/11 and Al Qaeda lies that were used to justify the war have disappeared.

Now the truth about oil and gas, mineral wealth, opium and naked imperial ambition are all that remain.

The decision to wage war on Afghanistan was taken on September 12, 2001 on the grounds that Afghanistan had attacked America on September 11, 2001. It was presented to the public as a war of “self defense”.
