LOL... okay, challenge that statement.
It's funny how some people will argue for hours about how a radio DJ insulted someoen or how waterboarding is/isn't torture, but will completely refuse to address major things, like the US/Taliban 2001 oil negotiations/threats.
It could be that possibly they are not aware of it. Historically, Americans in general rarely keep up with foreign policy, or even care to know about it. The only time they start looking at the decisions of huge multi-national corps. is when those decisions they make, or the decisions their government makes on behalf of multi-nationals impacts their lives negatively. In this case, their was a rush to action, and a call for bloodlust, and the fighting was going on before the knowledge had a chance to trickle down to Joe lunchbox.
