The Associated Press is running with a major story about a Mainland Chinese mining operation in Afghanistan that is about to destroy the archaeological site of an extremely important, 2,600 year Buddhist monastery known as Tepe Kafiriat, at Mes Aynak, 20 miles from Kabul. The monastery is atop a mountain of copper.
Did somebody say Copper Mountain?!?
Daily Mail picks it up, with photographs, but it isn't getting the play it deserves in the United States. This is a significant matter, so maybe we can change that, eh?
