On the other hand, Reg, it could increase the violence, corruption, and the commitment of those governments now with troops there to stick it out for decades to come.

Mining in a perpetual war zone, sounds like a bad investment. But Greed knows no boundary, just ask BP......

I don't know why it took the NYTimes this long to figure out the place was rich with minerals. Most of those caves are old mines.

'could'

and that shit is happening anyway... corruption is systematic over that way... atleast they'd have something more substancial to fight over besides religion and goats.

that BP spill is as much to do with US policy to not buy oil from the middle east as it is to do with greed.

so how it will it end years from now:

- coalition forces protecting the foreign owned mining fields?
- trade sanctions on taliban mines?

do you really think the afghan government will own and operate the mines? i didnt think so
