Afghanistan does own quite a large amount of mineral wealth but in a country with no infrastructure no one will ever get it out the ground, impossible. Even if mines were opened I'm sure the Taliban will put paid to that.I think there is more to going into Afghanistan than simply for revenge, more to do with economics
Afghanistan doesn't have the same importance to the USA as say a Kuwait. The people of Afghanistan have depended on the UK and USA forces to keep peace for the past 20 years.
There is no solution other than the people of Afghanistan take the fight to them. The Taliban run the export of opimum in Afghanistan, say no more.
This taxi driver from Liverpool ?. He goes out "after" the Taliban took control of the country to save relatives. If that was the case then why did he take his wife and kids with him full well knowing it was such a dangerous place or were they already over there ?.
Again, things like that make no sense non what so ever
