    We should have never touched the place. Since we did, it should be a big oil rig with a US Flag on it. Welcome to USA East.

    When are those people gonna realize that "freedom isn't free"? Sometimes it's not freedom, but that's beside the point. They still need to learn to govern by bumper sticker.

    I have already stated my position on this subject.
    It is time to bring our brave troops home from both of those corrupt countries.

    Oh, what about the trillions of $$$ that Bush invested there. Think some of that might have hurt us financially? Nah.

    But we haven't been attacked again since 9/11. Wasn't that the proof that the wars working when Bush was in office? What changed?

    Great questions and I know just the guy to ask for the answers. His name is Tim Osman. Now only if we could just find him.

    Speaking of attacks, some time back I ran across an Al Jazeera article on Al Qaeda attacks, affiliated Al Qaeda attacks and loosely connected attacks done by other transnational groups and the low level % of success I have to admit I was even surprised at. Out of 59 total events documented over the last 20 years up to 2009', only 14 events were successful meaning 45 events were failure or about 25% success rate. I would have guessed higher if put on the spot.

    From the piece.

    Not sure if you are familar with the Durand Line but as events in Pakistan and the Pashtuns have built, I've read more on what was called Pashtunistan and the after effects of the Durand Line. IMO sure makes for a much more interesting picture over there when you understand that part of the puzzle.
