Yup, seen it. It's pretty good.

Looks like they have re-designed the Frontline webpage a little but since I was last there.

We've been fighting there because we declared war on a brand of fear known as "terror."

and meanwhile the US government has had people there prospecting where all the minerals are as well as trying to set up mining operations. there are a lot of very rare minerals there as well with some of them china being a big source

not like the US fought WW2 to stop the nazis from killing innocent people. wars have always been fought over natural resources. one of the biggest reasons why germany invaded norway was to protect their supply of iron
