    so it would seem that afghanistan has something in common with bolivia,(other than poverty) copper and lithium.
    i heard about this from a bbc story talking about a nyt report that a u.s. government geologist had said that there might be a trillion dollars worth of each (or was it both?) element/s underground in afghanistan.

    Right. Comes at a good time. Congress is getting impatient about the war. The Pentagon pulls out an old report, updated from old Soviet reports. Ahah, now the US has a good reason to stay in the quagmire.

    Both Bolivia and Afghanistan lack sufficient water and the extraction takes lots of water and also causes pollution.
