It comes as a surprise to no one (who isn't a head-in-the-sand pwoggie bloggie puddin'-pop) that Afghanistan has untapped mineral deposits such as lithium. But it's the unalloyed, 100% moronic reaction of the pwoggie bloggie elite that boggles the mind. No, really. I am truly boggled:
Now, my only question for Pwogman! and his cloistered little bunch of pampered merit school cronies is - does this look fucking hopeful to you?
(Update: Displaying a breadth and depth of naivete that utterly defies my ability to describe in mere human terms - Pwogman! chides his commenters for daring to be criticize the good intentions of international corporations. No, really. I'm not kidding.)
