If the expected mineral deposits are successfully extracted, it will be years before any of that comes to pass. Even then, it is reasonable to ask how much of that will make it to common Afghan.

The country is in need of immediate help for development. One interesting idea is provided by Michael Yon. Cow Dung has been successfully used in Nepal to provide clean (really!) and sustainable fuel in places where none was available before. It could be a helpful and near-term way of improving the lives of many Afghans.
