中广网 Beijing June 18 news (reporters Zhen-Xi), according to U.S. media recently reported by Pentagon officials and geologists prospecting team found in Afghanistan a lot of mineral resources, the total value of nearly $ 1 trillion. Riding a tiger face the embarrassment of the war in Afghanistan, the United States at this time that Afghanistan is a super-power resources, the intention? This issue, the reporter interviewed the director of the National Defense University Institute for Strategic Studies Jin Yinan.
A large number of resources to pull the United States published in other countries into the water
Reporters: Opinion polls show that at present, the failure of the war in Afghanistan mood enveloped the American people, have 53% of Americans believe the war in Afghanistan is not worth to continue playing. Face the embarrassment of riding a tiger, the U.S. government at this time that Afghanistan is a super-power resources, what intent?
Jin Yinan: hearing the news, the first kind of the feeling of laughing. Because the entire Central Asian natural gas underground Ye Hao, Ye Hao oil, rich in itself, the whole world know. As for many rare in Afghanistan, which is we all know. Americans in this period published in the underground storage of Afghanistan so many things, even a trillion dollars worth, what does this mean? Kind of obvious to attract everyone to this purpose, investment, development, we all make money – but what kind of Afghanistan is a situation? Is a more troublesome situation than Iraq, is now a NATO extension stretching shrink, hesitating situation.
now according to Obama’s promise of the United States, an attempt in a very short period of time to resolve the Afghan problem, very difficult. President Obama within the timetable to resolve the Afghan problem, it now appears the possibility is very slim.
bait thrown hard to lead the United States taken in other countries
Reporter: Some analysts believe that the U.S. intention to do so is to win the support of allies and neighboring countries, so that his escape. On this point, how do we look?
Jin Yinan: It depends on other countries to join, is not able to get out of the United States to bring a good help. For example, the United States repeatedly asked the Chinese side, the Wakhan corridor of open issues, such as the requirement Korea and Japan do more to put on the battlefields of Afghanistan’s problems.
then the United States is not that the forces now in Afghanistan too thin, and out of a huge economic bait? I think not rule out this possibility, an attraction to foreign companies, another to the ordinary American voters to draw a lot of biscuits, that our U.S. operations in Afghanistan is justified, and Afghanistan have so much wealth, We grasp the wealth of these resources, with the U.S. military was able to put into symmetrical. In such a chaotic Afghanistan is in a turmoil, lack of basic guarantee of social order under the premise, suddenly announced that Afghanistan has a large number of underground wealth, of course, is a decoy, but the bait, I think the bait fish may be very limited, Because we all know that regional instability and risk, may lose everything go – no matter how much it is buried in the ground. And this habit of the United States, if the ground really have so many resources, it should be poured into the first U.S. company, rather than flicker into others, but why not the first company to enter the United States? This point of view, there are a lot of questions. So I think that wealth in this time announced that the time itself is more strange, but give us the questions, much more than answer the question.
U.S. plant in western Afghanistan, a strong system of hard work
Reporter: Since June of this year, the overall deterioration of the security situation in Afghanistan. Taliban comeback, frequent attacks, leading to the NATO international security force in Afghanistan suffered heavy casualties. So, in the United States and its allies continue to send more troops to Afghanistan in the case, the security situation in Afghanistan is still not clear why the improvement?
Jin Yinan: Afghanistan before it was known as the “Empire of the grave” in the U.S. before, was more clearly to bury two empires, one British, in Afghanistan, eat a lot of losses, The second is 1979 to 1988, playing a 10-year Soviet war in Afghanistan. Soviet war in Afghanistan, China power consumption is too large, has become an important reason for the disintegration of the Soviet Union, so Afghanistan has always been known as the “Empire of the grave.” The third American is now riding a tiger, one of the great features is that when you take a foreign system, to impose on Afghanistan, so that when you think your stuff is the most standard, most reasonable, you do not consider the local culture, customs, traditions of these things, then eat a great loss in Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s troubles in the wrong? Is that when a foreign power to enter its home, its resistance is time-consuming, and is amorphous, this to all of the outsiders have brought great trouble, the United States today faces the same problem.
