    Another country that is also very mineral rich is the one at the top of the post 9/11 invasion list – Afghanistan. They’ve been strip mining it ever since.

    Personally though, I believe their top priority was restoring opium production to pre-Taliban levels, as it was down to almost nil under that regime. Afghanistan is once again the # 1 opium producer in the world.

    One can only hope that the war in the Middle East elicits the same results for the U.S. and Israhell that the (so-called) war on drugs has garnered here
