The "Saudi Arabia of Lithium"

The US military is now touting the abundant mineral resources worth up to $1 trillion that have been found beneath Afghanistan's rocky, inhospitable terrain.  These valuable deposits of iron, copper, gold and lithium may help Afghanistan emerge from decades of war, lawlessness and poverty, US officials hope.  On The Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart analyzed this news over a pretty funny 4 minutes.  You can watch it HERE.  ("There's gold under Afghanistan's rough exterior. It's like Afghanistan is a war-torn Susan Boyle.")
