History of Wireless Phones in Afghanistan

Thanks to Khalid for sending me this story:

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, American scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion, that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago. Not to be outdone by the Americans, in the weeks that followed, a group of English archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story in the Guardian, UK read: "English archaeologists, finding of 200 year old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the Americans. One week later. A local newspaper in Kabul, Afghanistan reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture behind Darulaman Palace, Mullah Nasruddin, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Nasruddin has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Afghans had already gone wireless”.
Doesn't that Just makes you proud to live and be from Afghanistan!
