Hey everybody, I'm new here.

I was trying to post this on the conspiracy side of the house but dont have enough cred to post on there.

Well, check this out.

United States "Just" discovered that there are precious minerals in Afghanistan. Personally, I think that they have know all along.

here is the link to the story.

Oviously, if anybody here feels that I am wrong. Please just let me know.

There's a discussion already going on this. I think the general consensus is that this is a new report of long-known information. I personally think we're in Afghanistan for 4 reasons - strategic military placement on the eastern flank of Iran, securing the vast poppy fields for distribution throughout Europe and Asia (an industry worth hundreds of billions), stabilizing the region for the Trans-Afghani pipeline, and lastly, to secure these mineral resources. We're so efficient, aren't we!

Anyways here's the current thread.

Its very interesting that it has happened like that but I think its more of a bonus than anything else.

From a Geopolitical US empire strategic perspective, Afghanistan was the perfect fragmented region to invade in order to amass a huge number of operational US soldiers with out any problems in order for an invasion of other Middle East nations.

A trillion USD worth of Minerals is nothing in comparison to the trillions and trillions of Oil in Iraq, Iran etc.. Not to mention the pipelines for supplying.

These minerals surely mean that the US will be repaid with massive interest by the Afghani government for their "restructuring" of the country..

Or else that US companies will take over all the mining operations.. Hence Empire.
