    American geologists have found an estimated $1 trillion worth of ores in Afghanistan, including Gold, silver, copper, lithium, titanium, lead, tin, manganese and vast amounts of rare earths metals like Niobium. Theres at least 1.8 billion tons of iron ore.

    They didnt stumble on this by chance, they used data collected by the Russians in the 1980's.

    So that was the plan all along. Iraq was oil and Afghanistan was rare earths and noble metals.

    All becomes clear. Bet Bush didnt mention the minerals when Blair was licking his boots and grovelling to join in the war.

    There is always an ulterior motive with the septics, as for Blair he should be shot for being a lying, duplicitous,self serving, throwback from Satan.

    Or **** if you prefer.

    Btw we only finished paying back the septics for the lease lend agreement of 1941 in 2006

    Interesting article

    Not to mention the oil in the Falklands. Although I do rather believe that it was more to do with the 'principle' of it for Mrs T

    A trillion dollars? That's not even close to the amount the UK is in debt by. Try a trillion quid.

    A trillion dollars in iron ore is no great prize - it's one of the most abundant materials on earth.

    There's various ores everywhere, but most of it is not concentrated enough to be worth extracting commercially. If it costs 2 trillion dollars to get it out then it's not worth a carrot.
