The Luck of MOMCOM

The Irish have nothing on MOMCOM, in terms of luck.

What a fluke that we invaded Iraq, and then lo and behold it had no WMD but had lots of oil.

We invaded Afghanistan but did not find Terrorist Number One in the caves, but we have now found gold, lithium, and lots of other shiny stuff.

The luck of MOMCOM is phenomenal:
The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials.
(NY Times). I am waiting for them to declare how much latinum there is for the Ferengi before I calculate how long the war will have to be extended.
