    Overkill already has a dancing boy.

    I suggest asking for a plane ticket home, ‘cos once Overkill finds out there’s been no progress, Jeff’s nothing but a cool million dollar bounty to him.

    I flagged them, too, Leon. They will stop when Gocomics figures out how to filter them out & leave us here.

    Coyoty, I had the same thought when I read this strip. Also, the Red Rascal had become nothing but a company mascot.

    This is not our way, what else you got! Get something good Jeff! The Red Rascal will make lemonaide out of lemons! Or at least invent a great story to tell about it.

    Hmm, Afghani customs. When I went to the first Oil War they briefed us on the custom of Arabs (not to be confused with Persians or other major players) that they would be obliged to give a possession to someone if they were complimented on it. (no idea if that extended to wives). Sadly, I was stuck in a tin can in the gulf with no contact with them.

    AH, yes, those Afghani warlords do love the boys…

    Even though our “hero” is not getting immediate results, he is handling himself rather well.

    I wonder… Perhaps he DID learn something from Havoc after all.

    A shrubbery…one that looks nice…and not too expensive.

    Overkill’s professionals are at Karzai’s bro’s airstrip inspecting his finest cash crops to be offloaded at a discreet mesa South of Nogales.

    That Rascal is a hard bargainer. He could probably sell rugs to a Baluchi.

    Portzebie, Afghanis are not Arabs. They are a variety of groups: Pashtuns, Hazaras, and others. But not Arabs.

    When Osama bin Laden and crew were at least relatively openly operating in Afghanistan, locals referred to them collectively as “the Arabs”.

    rmleon, I know that. I was just wondering if some customs cross over to other Islamic regions?

    And one of the hallmarks of the Taliban (which didn’t endear them to the Off-The-Shelf Enterprise folks) was their crackdown on the opium trade.

    They had almost wiped it out by the time BushCheneyCo intervened, and now it’s restored and more.

    So Karzai is in that position of negotiating among the power blocs, as Richard notes. Multi-mucho-bux being floated with very little benefit to the purported goals…
