Afghani oil & gas

This is from a Financial Times article: “Afghanistan’s untapped oil and natural gas reserves may be significantly larger than previously thought, according to the results of a survey by the US Geological Survey (USGS) and the Afghan Ministry of Mining and Industry released in Washington on Tuesday.” The estimated reserves are about 1.5bn barrels of oil and 15.6tr cubic feet of natural gas.

Anyone ready for the conspiracy theory version of the article: “that’s why America is occupying Afghanistan!”
