      that everyone assured us was the real reason for the war.

      Ten years and counting, and not one inch of pipe laid ... and yes, there are routes that don't pass near Taliban territory.

      Such is the burden of being overly cynical.

      •  What pipeline are you talking about? (0+ / 0-)

        That is not what I was referring to. I'm referring to the destruction of the American economy.

        However, I believe I once did say that China was paying for our military/janitorial work in Afghanistan (true) in order to clear the way for oil to enter eastern Cina.

        Mission accomplished. We are hurrying as fast as we can to drag our sorry loser asses out of there.

        China gets approval for Afghanistan oil exploration bid

        China has gained potential access to millions of barrels of oil after it won approval for oil exploration and extraction in Afghanistan.

        The country's cabinet approved a deal to allow China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) to develop oil blocks in the Amu Darya Basin.

        "The Afghan cabinet has ordered mines minister Wahidullah Shahrani to sign an oil exploration contract for Amu Darya with China National Petroleum Corporation," Afghanistan president's office said in a statement.

        As for below, you gotta keep up. Christ, who doesn't know about Libya's oil nationalization threat?

        Start with Wikileaks.

        Then go on to Financial Times.

        Now the independent oil companies have moved into Libya. Happy days are here again!

        Then go to Google News so you can catch up with the events of the past 18 months. Search "Lybia oil nationalize,"

        Then you can converse with an informed person.
