    How do you judge your carbon footprint? IF you drive an electric or hybrid, your footprint is higher than the average american...you just don't know it.

    Looks to me like a lawyer that went into the easiest, shortest, and most likely to never see the field for two short years....lol

    Due to the passive solar design of my house, it takes half as much energy to heat and cool as the average house, and

    The Summer I will be also adding 1.5 KW of solar panels to drastically reduce my reliance on grid power.

    Oooooh, he served 2 years and got an ARCOM. I have served nearly 18 and my bronze star trumps his ARCOM.

    Karzai, who described the images as "inhumane and provocative," said "the only way to put an end to such painful experiences" was to end the presence of foreign forces in Afghanistan."
    Thats the thing.....Pull out and see what happens to Karzai's government? I'll give him a year. It's certain that the Taliban will crawl in and take over the instant the US pulls out

    Just who is Karzai bull****ting?....and frankly I (I would also say 99.99% on these boards) don't give a **** who governs A-stan and I don't think anyone on the AQ side does either. Afghanistan is not even a spec on the map of this war. Nobody gives a **** about it but us.

    When did you receive your Juris Doctor and when were you the Director of the CIA????

    That's going to happen whenever we leave.

    My bad, the post you were replying appeared to be asking about military expertise and leading soldiers. Not lawyering and waterboarding terrorists. One would think that the secretary of DEFENSE should have more than two years of military experience.

    Silly me for actually expecting you to address the point being made and not some random thought that popped into your head
