Even far-left-leaning CNN understands that the recent diabolical series of events in Afghanistan is really about control of natural resources in the middle eastern region. While a humanitarian tragedy is unfolding before our eyes, Americans are watching both the complete collapse of the US Government and the chaotic panic of people we were told, for 20 years, US Troops were protecting- in a land, we were told we were making better.
“US strategists are alarmed that an estimated $1 trillion in precious metals, including lithium reserves vital for the electric car and rechargeable battery industry, could come under Taliban control,” The Times of India reported on Thursday.
The American people were lied to about what was happening in Afghanistan, and CNN knows it, Democrat Joe Biden knows it and the American people need to understand it.
While people are talking about massive treasure and botty from the area, reports about the treatment of the people are horrific:

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WEALTH-BUILDING?
According to CNN:
The swift fall of Afghanistan to Taliban fighters has triggered a humanitarian crisis, with thousands trying to flee the country. It’s alsobrought renewed focus on Afghanistan’s vast untapped mineral wealth, resources that could transform its economic prospects if ever developed.
Afghanistan is one of the poorest nations in the world. But in 2010, US military officials and geologists revealed that the country, which lies at the crossroads of Central and South Asia, was sitting on mineral deposits worth nearly $1 trillion.
Supplies of minerals such as iron, copper and gold are scattered across provinces. There are also rare earth minerals and, perhaps most importantly, what could be one of the world’s biggest deposits of lithium — an essential but scarce component in rechargeable batteries and other technologies vital to tackling the climate crisis
Who could benefit from those minerals? Enter the Chinese Communist Party.
According to Nigel Farage, there is a reason to be suspicious of the Chinese Communist Party’s involvement with whoever is in charge of Afghanistan now, and it appears that it is the Taliban.
“So The West wants to go green with electric cars. To do that you need lithium for the batteries. Afghanistan has by far the largest lithium deposits in the world and Biden has just handed them over to China,” Farage posted on Twitter recently.

According to the Times of India titled, the Taliban in the area have been well-armed to defend their wealth-building natural resources, no matter what sort of protections Biden pretends to enact:
WASHINGTON: A hostage trade-off situation is developing in Afghanistan between the United States and Taliban amid growing concerns about the medieval mob that has overrun Kabul gaining access to sophisticated American armaments including Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 attack planes.
Thousands of Americans and their Afghan cohorts are stuck outside the Kabul airport perimeter, with Taliban controlling access and letting so few through that US evacuation planes are reporting to be flying out well below capacity. US President Biden, under attack at home for a botched withdrawal, said on Wednesday that the US was committed to evacuating every American out of Afghanistan, even if meant extending the military mission beyond his August 31 deadline for withdrawal.
While the Biden administration earlier this week froze the Afghan government’s reserves held in US bank accounts, alarm is mounting in Washington over the cards Taliban hold: Thousands of US citizens who are stranded beyond the airport perimeter and a trove of US armaments and weapons that has fallen into the lap of the fundamentalists who’ve declared Afghanistan would be run as per Shariah law.
One reporter from Iran, Heshmat Alavi, reported on the US Made weapons being shown off and reminded people who would benefit- Iran and China.
"… the Taliban are believed to control more than 2,000 armored vehicles, including U.S. Humvees, and up to 40 aircraft potentially including UH-60 Black Hawks, scout attack helicopters, and ScanEagle military drones."https://t.co/BclA9ZHPyU

A massive hostage crisis could be developing in Afghanistan. This humanitarian crisis will no doubt affect the entire world.
