Vast mineral deposits found in Afghanistan

Nearly $1 trillion in untapped resources could fundamentally alter economy.

This is one of  the headline in MSN today. So, what is going to happen now?  China is also interested and can possible outbid the US.

 The Taliban is fighting to regain control of the country and its new-found wealth.  It’s lot corruption in the country by government officials. Anything can happen at this time.

At the same time, American officials fear resource-hungry China will try to dominate the development of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, which could upset the United States, given its heavy investment in the region. (excerpt from original post)

Well, well the US. might become upset.  About what?  Because they invested some money?  Or maybe,because they can’t stop the war,  or control the Taliban? The US don’t know what to do now? 

The war of waiting has begun.  Is always a motive behind the United States, an agenda.  Lets keep a close watch on how this develops.
