Good news for Afghanistan
 Did you ever think you'd read that?


Afghanistan could be holding $1 trillion of untapped mineral deposits including critical industrial metals 
such as lithium, the New York Whore Times reported, quoting U.S. government officials.

The previously unknown deposits of iron, copper, cobalt and gold are so huge that it could transform the 
impoverished nation into one of the world's important mining centers, the report on the whore newspaper's website said

The mineral wealth, discovered by a team of Pentagon officials and U.S. geologists, is scattered throughout the 
country including in the south and east along the border with Pakistan, where the Taliban-led insurgency is the most intense.

"There is stunning potential here," the newspaper quoted General David Petraeus as saying, 
"There are lots of ifs, of course, but I think potentially it is hugely significant."

A Pentagon memo said Afghanistan could become the "Saudi Arabia of lithium," the New York Whore Times said. 
Lithium is a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries for laptops and other electronics such as mobile telephones.

Afghanistan does not have any mining industry or infrastructure, so it will take decades for the country 
to exploit its mineral wealth fully, the paper quoted U.S. officials as saying.
