One thing that tickles me about the Taliban blowing up supply routes in Pakistan is that it will give the U.S. another reason to warm up to Iran. I mean look at the map, there aren't a lot of other options. Look for it.
Iran just launched their first space satellite. Experts fear that this this an overture to a ballistic missile program.
