    Rambunctious...one of my late mothers favorite words.

    As in "Kids, stop being so rambunctious"

    30 yrs of war does make a country a living nightmare, doesnt it?

    here is the thing....tribal rule is hard to maintain without a simple choke hold on the people..to maintain order and prevent the Taliban from moving back in...one must maintain that hold....

    and about the poppy production....it has gone up

    sad that the enemies finances are determined by the quality of ied's

    But.... we're 'losing' that war... at least, that's what whiners keep insisting. Gee, color me shocked to find the truth is somewhat different.
