Thought for today. Behold today’s war. Latter day casus belli. War, what is it good for? Absolutely lithium. And what was Afghanistan about? Lithium, Sparky. Lithium. It’s only used to make batteries for everything from mobile phones, computers, to iPads, name it. And guess who wants it? Everyone. Not to mention $1 trillion of mineral wealth has been discovered Afghanistan. And note that lithium, gold, iron and copper are among the many minerals identified. And guess what? A de minimis quantity has been exploited because the country has been mired in conflict for three decades. But don’t be depressed. Be informed.
Pilger’s Law: “If it’s been officially denied, then it’s probably true.”
But fret not. There’s more in our world to absolute marvel at. And give me a minute and I’ll think of something.
