There is no way for the Powerful Oz to “win” this war.

Two empires have gone down before it.

Peshawar, Pakistan - Throughout the ages, this ancient Silk Road town near the border of Afghanistan has been the place where the black market thrives and the military spoils of empires are hawked openly.

Here in the storefronts you can still buy antique field rifles left over from the British presence of the 19th century and find uniforms and revolvers from the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Now the shops in this industrial rim of Peshawar are filling with military equipment and computers looted from the most recent empire to bog down in this hostile and impenetrable terrain: the United States of America.

In the age of computerized high-tech warfare, it is not just American hardware available on the black market.

    "Selig Harrison of the DC-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars recently told a conference in London that the CIA created the Taliban "monster", by spending some $3 billion for the ultra-fundamentalist militia in their 1994-94 drive to power." --Times of India, March 7 2001

    That's basically how the Fed/CIA world order operates in these third-world 'nations'. They install their groomed or selected government or leader(taliban, saddam etc.) through a 'coup' or intrigue, and then declare war on them years later.
