Mining is one of Afghanistan’s few economic bright spots. Significant deposits of copper, iron, gold, oil and gas, and coal — as well as precious gems such as emeralds and rubies — are largely untapped.

The US is whining it is not getting mining contracts. They are screaming corruption. Source

Personally the US  should clean up the corruption in their own back yards before  accusing others.  The US is a leader of taking bribes especially at election time. Their politicians are bought and sold by big oi, gas, phama and the Israeli lobby groups.  They should take a look in the mirror before accusing others.

Why would the Afghans want to award them contracts considering, they destroyed their country, murdered their citizens,  left a deadly trail of radioactive poison etc etc.

Seems to me the US has corruption mastered.

The US should, Get out of Afghanistan.

Those who sent them there under false pretenses, should be tried for War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity.
