China Eying $3 Trillion In Afghan Rare Earth Minerals

Breitbart

In the course of hectoring the United States for its “bungled and embarrassing withdraw from Afghanistan” on Thursday, China’s state-run Global Times admitted Beijing has a rapacious interest in Afghanistan’s vast rare-earths mineral resources and snarled it was none of America’s business if China makes deals with the Taliban to get what it wants.

The Global Times accused the U.S. of profiteering from Afghanistan for the past twenty years, without offering any theories on where all the plunder might have gone, and claimed America is only worried about China going after those mineral resources because the U.S. is jealous More

According to China Uncensored, the Asian giant has a sad history of developing projects in Afghanistan. There is a copper and an oil project in the war torn nation that haven’t faired well for the Chinese.

  3. China is the market leader in rare earths already. It has a huge percentage of the stuff.

    My guess is China probably wants to keep Afghanistan’s rare earths out of US hands.
