Afghanistan signs oil contract with Chinese giant
John Chan | 10 January 2012 | WSW


'China’s oil contract with Afghanistan will exacerbate tensions with the US and India.'



'Few may know that China is actually the world's fifth-largest oil producer, at 3.7 million barrels per day (bpd), just below Iran and slightly over Mexico. In 1980, China consumed only 3% of the world's oil. Now it's already around 10% - the world's second-largest consumer, overtaking Japan but still way behind the US at 27%.'

Can you see why they needed 9/11 to get a footprint in the area?

Just a note on how powerful China is.

There are more FEMALE serving soliders in China than the ENTIRE US population.
