    Who gives a **** what they have on the books right. Lets see what they have in practice once the last soldiers gone. These supporters of ****ed up US foreign policy in the ME are just amazing. Besides, was any of that the reason we even went there? I thought we went to destroy the people responsible for 9/11, they're stronger now too! There has been as much success at our efforts as the USSR had at there's, just like you stated to begin with! Oh, and poppies are at peak production!!

    "The invasion of Afghanistan is certainly a campaign against terrorism," wrote author George Monbiot in the Oct. 22, 2001, piece, "but it may also be a late colonial adventure."

    He wrote that the U.S. oil company Unocal Corp. had been negotiating with the Taliban since 1995 to build "oil and gas pipelines from Turkmenistan, through Afghanistan and into Pakistani ports on the Arabian sea."

    To make things even smoother, the U.S. engineered the rise to power of two former Unocal employees: Hamid Karzai, the new interim president of Afghanistan, and Zalmay Khalizad, the Bush administration's Afghanistan envoy.

    John Pilger in an Oct. 29 commentary in the British-based Mirror wrote, "Bush's concealed agenda is to exploit the oil and gas reserves in the Caspian basin, the greatest source of untapped fossil fuel on earth."

    "Just as the Gulf War in 1991 was about oil, the new conflict in South and Central Asia is no less about access to the region's abundant petroleum resources," writes Ranjit Devraj in the Hong Kong-based Asia Times, a business- oriented publication.
    And the only ones surprised is the pro-war crowd.

    Not according to people who have visited there recently, but I haven't been so all I know is what people have told me.

    Have you been there? What did you see that led you to believe it was so terrible?

    No, Rush is not the only one. There are others. Anyway, didn't he go to Thailand?

    I was thinking more of family oriented tours, like these.

    I don't know anything about Rush. Haven't heard him or of him in years. You'll have to take your obsession elsewhere.

    Or perhaps a holiday in Cambodia.

    Cambodia is close to Vietnam, at least. So is Thailand. Now, as to your assertion that "Vietnam, today, is a pile of ****", are we finished with that, or did you want to elaborate?
