    The oil companies don't care who controls Afghanistan, just that it is stable.  Currently they're not going to do anything, but if/when it stabilizes, they'll begin the conversation again.  I didn't say I doubt the sincerity of the reasoning behind invading Afghanistan (though a find/capture mission would've been a lot more cost effective for us), or do I think the oil companies interests were served in the invasion.  I do, however find that they're almost certainly interested in stability in the region.

    I'm not sure why you included the last sentence in the excerpted quote.  Why do you find that "silly"?

      I concede the point, and made the mistake of thinking you were arguing for something else.

      I apologize. Thanks for the clarification.
