    Que another 30 years of terror threats and at least four more sequels to Bin Laden: exsposed and personal.

    I swear, everytime he releases a new one the plot stays the same...

    so they knew about this before? conspiracy peoples will obviously say yes... but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. makes more sense than saying 'well we were just strolling around in the desert doing some sampling and BLAM! found $1 trillion worth of minerals'

    yeah, according to german media they knew at least since 2004 - but i assume they did before, as the information was gathered by the talbin regime long before the invasion and not by the us.

    Even if they knew about it in '04 it has no relevance to anything dealing with the invasion that happened 3 years previous. They'd better hand over the resources to the Afghan government - make something good come out of that place... Put the potential recruits for the Taliban to work, people seem to be much less willing to fight if they have a stable income.

    Less desperation = fewer zealots trying to kill people.

    What?
