US strikes gold in Afghanistan — literally!

As you might’ve heard, back in June US authorities announced that they had identified vast deposits of precious metals and minerals such as iron, copper, cobalt and gold, worth about a $1 trillion in Afghanistan!

Since this didn’t directly relate to Iran, I covered it in an article on my personal blog at under the same title. However, it hits close to home and should sound familiar. Though there was little mention of it in the media (except the New York Times article that broke the news) the Daily Show and Colbert Report did an awesome job covering it, which I have also included in my article.
