Umm, so it's about resources after all?

Woke up this morning to this story: ["U.S. Identifies Vast Riches of Minerals in Afghanistan"].
So, I guess it wasn't about the pipeline but was about minerals? This reminds me of the story ages ago about miners finding gold or silver deposits in Bosnia. BTW, are we still in Bosnia too?
TIME Magazine has had some pretty good reporting from Afghanistan and the news is pretty bleak. Somehow, I think that trillions in minerals found in the ground is only going to make things worse ...
