Tell Our Government to let the Afghan people control and benefit from it's own resources


The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials.

The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world, the United States officials believe.

These new found resources could greatly benefit the people and youth of Afghanistan.  We ask that our Government allow the Afghan Government and people to control their own resources.  We ask that you do what you said you were there to accomplish which is to destroy Al Qaeda, the taliban, and Terrorism and not to search and benefit from this country's natural resources.


Thank you,
