More on Afghan Mineral Wealth

AFP reports that the Taliban have threatened to attack any companies attempting to extract minerals from Afghanistan.  This is wholly unsurprising.  I actually find it a little odd that the Taliban felt the need to state their threat explicitly.  It would seem to me clear—threat or no threat—that any company doing business with the Karzai government would become a target, just as aid organizations have been targeted.
