Just when I thought we might be getting out of Afghanistan somebody goes and does something like this Vast mineral wealth discovered in Afghanistan. Now with this discovery you think the U.S. is going to leave any time soon? Nope. We'll be there for the long hall yet once more defending corporate America from anyone else from getting their grubby mitts on "our" resources. Just when I thought the U.S. was smart enough to get out of a hell hole that wasn't worth two cents this happens. And you know what will happen next. Karzi will want a good chunk of change from this little gold mine until U.S. corporations get too greedy. He'll throw out the U.S. some time down the road or at least threaten to do so. He'll then be overthrown by rebels within the Afghan military infiltrated by the CIA. And hence a new dictator will be installed.
Mark this as a basic history lesson folks because we've seen this how many times before?
I hear there's large deposits of lithium there. Good. We'll need it for the manic depression.
