I was under the impression that all of the recent wars were after oil. It's brilliant (in a bad way) that we (U.S.) go after the source for all of our batteries. I just counted 7 items in my house that use lithium batteries.
The push for "new" energy from the White House, and the President himself - makes this whole situation transparent.
Am I wrong, or does the forthcoming Chevy Volt have one of the biggest lithium battery packs in a production car in history?

I think your wrong. Afghanistan has an able workforce ready to work and willing to leave the poppy fields. The mining companies would be foolhardy to employ high priced foreign workers when they can pay less than half for Afghan labour.
