With the press release last week about Afghanistan having massive mineral deposits for TECHNOLOGICAL CRUCIAL applications it makes me wonder if all
the wars and invasions are not so much about oil which is last years resource of choice and on its way out, but rather to do with who controls the
elements used in making electronics, solar panels, batteries, generators, communications equipment, etc.
The rare earth elements, and of course gold silver platinum.
Think about it, though oil is still the main power source right now, we are quickly advancing toward the wide scale use of alternative energies as
technology becomes better.
Now since Afghanistan was found with all these new resources what if neighboring Iran also has significant bounty that tptb where able to discover
using satellites and bouncing of waves to read the responses.
Your guys thoughts?
