If I recall correctly, we wanted the factions that supported the Taliban involved in building the new government, but none of the other tribes did.

Ummm... I read that too, somewhere, but I'm damned if I can remember exactly where. Was it a Reuters wire service article? I remember at the time the interim administration was being formed I was doing most of my reading at reuters.com, but it may have been somewhere else that carried the story.

In any case, thanks for mentioning it. I had forgotten about that.

Most likely the leaders and high-level advisors of the allied Afghan forces which ousted the Taliban.

You mean the Northern Alliance? Nope, Karzai was an american choice. Pure and simple.

If those Afghanis decided it would be advantageous for them to choose someone they felt would be more acceptable to Americans than another, what's wrong with that?

Oh dear, what twisted logic we weave. Yes, the Afghans decided the Unocal man should be in charge. Coincidence?

America doesn't control the country of Afghanistan or the people of Afghanistan

It's subdued enough to build the pipeline - that's all they care about.

So far, it seems that the only thing that has been acquired is the POSSIBILITY

Trust me, if they didn't know the oil pipeline would be helped by karzai he would still be working for Unocal in America.

Try and distuingish propaganda from reality.

They arn't going to say "We will install an ex-Unocal man in charge to facilitate our oil program" right? They'll say any old bullshit that makes people like them.

Remember that the oil profits will be held in trust for the Iraqi people too  :grin:
