Afghanistan may be one of the richest countries on earth

"There is stunning potential here," General David Petraeus said.  It seems Afghanistan has nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits, according to a US study.

China and India have bid for contracts to develop Afghan mines, with the Chinese winning a huge copper contract. An iron-ore contract is due to be awarded later this year.

IMO: Let us hope it benefits the Afghans who live there.
