Previously known as shanghai 5, SCO is a emerging military block in the global power arena. Uzbekistan was inducted as its sixth member state in 2005, and soon after its induction clear demands were made to the United States to vacate the air bases at k2.
In its manifesto the purpose of its inception is to join forces to eradicate extremism, terrorism and drug trafficking but by its actions over the time this fact has become quiet obvious that it is a military block to counter the NATO and United States covert activities in the central Asia.
Despite of the contrary official and foreign office statements, China and Russia are quiet much concerned over the covert CIA operations undergoing in Afghanistan, and soon after the invasion of Afghanistan by America and NATO forces, this organization has become quiet active.
Chinese and Russians are well aware of the Brzezinski’s theory of global domination (that for global domination one needs to control the Eurasian mass and for that purpose the control of the central Asia is must). America needed a reason after entering the Afghanistan to expand its clutches to its neighboring countries, that reason could have been any thing ranging from political chaos to internal violence on the basis of ethnicity or religion.
The purpose of the SCO was to stop or counter any such efforts to destabilize the region and up till now it has been quiet successful in achieving that. China and Russia are are also quiet active in Afghanistan to neutralize the stabilizing efforts made by America and NATO.
The current prevailing situation in Afghanistan is also the indicator of the success this organization and other anti US and anti NATO agencies are having in the Afghanistan.The most interesting fact is that America applied for the observer status in 2005 and it was denied.
With ever increasing economic base of the economic giant China, the reforms introduced in the Russia and the huge resource base present in the central Asia the future of this organization seems quiet bright.
