".Mes Aynak has the potential to be the Pompeii of Afghanistan, if properly
preserved. Or, if mining proceeds recklessly, visitors and future
generations of Afghans will instead be confronted with the legacy of poor
planning, mismanagement, and corruption at Mes Aynak - and the only thing
they will be able to view will be a gigantic open pit filled with toxic
sludge. Mes Aynak has the potential to be a win-win situation for all
involved, if the key actors can free themselves from their all-or-nothing
mindset and embark on a frank and intelligent collaboration."
