I'm sure we all remember the Democrats mantra about the "war for oil". They kept saying it even though we get almost no oil from Iraq. But in a wild turn we find out that Afghanistan is full of lithium. And I mean full. Lithium is needed for the batteries of all the electric cars the Democrats want to see on the road. Obama knew about this lithium and other metals that Afghanistan has and we need. The Russians knew about it but at that time lithium wasn't as big of a commodity as it is now in our "green economy". This should make sense to all those left wingers out there that went nuts over the Iraqi oil. It also makes sense that Obama is ramping up the war in Afghanistan. Afghanistan needs us to build the infrastructure so that we can come in and take that new green fuel lithium. I'm sure the left wing that went crazy over Bush's "war for oil" will be out in full force over this new war for green fuel. What am I saying? Those Democratic hypocrites wont do anything about the war for lithium until a Republican or Independent is in charge.
