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
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
"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.
