    No, not Afghanistan today; but Russia's war in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989. Remember? We armed the rebels and they drove the Russians out. Then came the al-Qaeda training camps, 9/11, and now we have the Taliban to fight. What will the rebels in Libya produce? It's reported that they have al-Qaeda support now!

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    It depends. Will we spend all that money arming the nation for an insurgency, and then just let them be? Or will we actually take part in helping with nation building to get a stable infrastructure that isn't ran by crazies?

    One led to our present situation. But I'm willing to bet there are more then a few here who'd like to walk that path again.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Rebel Commander in Libya Fought Against U.S. in Afghanistan

    Shortly after unrest broke out in eastern Libya in mid-February, reports emerged that an “Islamic Emirate” had been declared in the eastern Libyan town of Darnah and that, furthermore, the alleged head of that Emirate, Abdul-Hakim al-Hasadi, was a former detainee at the American prison camp in Guantánamo. The reports, which originated from Libyan government sources, were largely ignored or dismissed in the Western media.
