In 2010, an internal US Department of Defense memo called Afghanistan “the Saudi Arabia of lithium,” after American geologists discovered the vast extent of the country’s mineral wealth, valued at at least $1 trillion. The silvery metal is essential for electric vehicles and renewable energy batteries.





Global demand for lithium is projected to skyrocket 40-fold above 2020 levels by 2040, according to the International Energy Agency, along with rare earth elements, copper, cobalt, and other minerals in which Afghanistan is naturally rich. These minerals are concentrated in a small number of pockets around the globe, so the clean energy transition has the potential to yield a substantial payday for Afghanistan.


Is this why the USA had to flee Afghanistan so fast?



In the past, Afghan government officials have dangled the prospect of lucrative mining contracts in front of their US counterparts as an enticement to prolong the American military presence in the country. With the Taliban in charge, that option is likely off the table.





Ten years later, thanks to conflict, corruption, and bureaucratic dysfunction, those resources remain almost entirely untapped. And as the US looks to disentangle its clean energy supply chains from China, the world’s top lithium producer, to have Afghanistan’s minerals under Taliban control is a severe blow to American economic interests.

So now the Taleban controls one of the world’s biggest lithium deposits + lots of other rare minerals valued at at least $1 trillion.
With China buddying up with Taleban, they will possible get control over some of the rarest and most importen ressources for a clean future.

This all smells funny to me, and i have a hard time believing that the USA doesnt have a clue about the potential consequences this will have in the future - its like they want China to rule the world!

wth is going on? Can you guys tell me?

Democrats gifts to the Taliban and China, they also left behind billions of dollars in military equipment, for the Taliban terrorist to use at will.

Democrats love terrorist but hate americans.

It seems so, but iam affraid this is a problem that goes deep into both parties. The people of the USA needs to unite against the corruption on both sides. Dont know what can be done though.

Literally because of backroom deals. Beijing Joe and the Dems just got 100x the funding from their handlers in China for this and the Taliban just got a brand new arsenal. Fitting since we haven't directly armed the Taliban since the Russian conflict.

The Democrat leadership with their trillion dollar package lies when they say is going to be to increase competitiveness with China, the truth is that the soo call green initiatives will end up benefiting China financially.

Because they aren't the USA to take. The minerals belong to the Afghani people. How is that not as obvious as the nose on your face?

Have you seen the news lately?? A LOT of the afghanian people doesnt seems to like the Taliban taking over the country.
Are you saying the Taliban will share their riches with the people? We know USA wouldnt, but atleast we could have done things differently so it was American companies drilling those minerals and not the Chinese, which iam sure wont care much about the Afghanian people either.

But you go tell yourself that if you much, that what you did you did for the afghanian people... If it all wasnt so sad, i would have laught at that notion...

Yeah, that is a big question too. We heard that there was 3.5 million items left, including houndreds of armored trucks, just at one base. God knows what else was left behind

Well liberals, including their political leaders, do not value American national security as much as they do clean energy.

Taping those clean energy resources, even at the expense of weakening the US and strengthening China, is what is paramount. Having those resources locked up due to perpetual war doesn't help mother earth at all.

Besides as the world transitions to a one world government where you own nothing and are happy what difference does it make if the US or China control these important clean energy resources.

If your an elite member of American society your still going to be able to buy your tesla even if its China making the battery. Its not as if China is going to cut you off from your next generation smartphones and laptops. Why would the Chinese do that; they like having elite members of American society run the world... don't they?

Because Democrats get paid off with campaign donations to get local, state and federal candidates elected and then in turn pass favorable laws for foreign interests 😃

People have been brainwashed, but they are still your brothers and sisters. Lets put the blame on the politicans where it belongs.

But the world is sure looking more and more crazy, and for them all to be controlled by China or some other sick cult of rich and powerfull men, dont seems so far fetched anymore.

Nope, now belongs to the terrorist group called the Taliban, so they can finance now nuclear weapons to kill any nation that do not align with their twisted and deranged believes. All thanks to china senile biden.

Who does Joe Biden work for? The CCP.
There you go.

Well, there kind of is. It's called treason. The only course of action to stop this madness though is to start avoiding the Justice System and start hanging corrupt politicians. I'm sure word would get around that the people are fed up really quick if that started happening. Until that happens this revolving door will continue to spin and we've seen how helpful our Justice system is when it comes to corrupt politicians. They're obviously immune to the same laws as you and I.

That might be taking it a bit far and is not something i would advice to do. But people do need to get more involved in what is going on and demand that actions are taken against the quilty.
But we need to prove what is going on first, we can prove they lie and are full of crap - so first step would be to STOP voting these a-holes into office again and again.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results"
-Albert Einstein

Stop voting the same two parties into power - have your votes ever changed anything? Dont expect different results next time, that would just be insane!

ETA: They are only Immune, because they ALL are in it together - we need new people and ideas voted into power - someone who is not associated with the 2 ruling parties and somebody who is willing to prosecute the corrupt politicans.
