$1 trillion of minerals found in Afghanistan

0 Comments | Herald, The; Glasgow (UK), Jun 15, 2010

A team of US geologists and Pentagon officials has discovered vast mineral wealth in Afghanistan, conceivably enough to turn the scarred and impoverished country into one of the world's most lucrative mining centres.

"There is stunning potential here," General David Petraeus, commander of the US Central Command, said in a report published yesterday. "There are a lot of ifs, of course, but I think potentially it is hugely significant."

Americans discovered nearly $1 trillion (pound(s)678bn) in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, including iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals such as lithium - a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries for laptops and cell phones - according to the report.

During a visit last month to Washington, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said his nation's untapped mineral deposits could be even higher - as much as $3tr.

The mineral resources are a massive opportunity, Karzai said at a May 13 event with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton held at the US Institute of Peace.

So far, the biggest mineral deposits found are of iron and copper, but finds include large deposits of niobium, a soft metal used in producing superconducting steel, as well as rare earth elements and large gold deposits in Pashtun areas of southern Afghanistan, the report said.

Ghazni Province, where the lithium deposits are reported to be, is a dangerous area, home to many Taliban.-AP

America is f’ed taking the piss fully

And we are already controlled by the states in this county we are under them

They need to stop gassing about special relationship they tell us what to do and we follow

People need to open their eyes

Look around the uk has been fully colonised by the states

from our tv to our diets and ideology changing now people are dumbing down allot

british troops are under command of Americans in Afghanistan which is turning out to

be some proxy war (which I always belived but now its becoming clearer)

even in Iraq America told the brits where to patrol america is the master of Britain

Only threat to America is Russia, and China

And they have them man fully on the radar

Hence them trying to get missles in Poland about its to get Iran sh*t is there for Russia tbh

Same with north korea crap going on, if a Korean war happens

America will end up having a base in north korea which will be on chinas doorstep

China know this hence them always backing north korea

Usa dominance>>>>

But as we all as history as taught us all great empires fall
