    China had to go to places like Angola, Libya, and Iraq because there is no where else to go anymore.
    Exxons and BPs and Shells of the world has pretty much sucked up anywhere there is easy oil.

    The more civilized days.

    Actually sanctions and bombings are demonstrations of hard power tactics and punishments on states which violated the norms of the international community. (-IR minor)

    yes, if you want to couch it in less troubling terms.

    The legality may be different. But the mechanism is the similiar, i.e. causing pain and suffering on a civilian population (kill people) to affect a political change.

    Terrorism, by definition, describes a mechanism which to affect political change.

    So world's the most powerful millitary force finally "blew the head off " a dying kidney-patient (that was 10 years ago) after what, 10 years and $ 3 trillion bonanza for its defence firms?

    The whole fantacy sounds more realistic than Flying Pigs.

    rofl. Sorry but if they have given me $ 0.001 trillion, I would have handed him over personally ( tell me how you want him, dead? alive? half dead? roasted? baked? ...) for the 1st anniversary gathering of 9/11. Hey, win-win! lol.

    Not a surprising move, though hardly can much out of with just a tail section and small pieces of scrap.
