yea I agree, figs and foreign policy have nothing in common, besides the figs in the Middle East.

Who created the monster? Why did the terrorists attack in the way they did? What were their motives? Their motives were not that they hated our way of life or that they hated our freedoms- they hate our government because of our governments misguided foreign policy of interventionism and policing the world. Would you become a terrorist against China if a Chinese bomb landed on your roof and killed your entire family?

Terrorist organizations have and will always exist- but they carry very little weight in their respective countries until the population has a reason to side with them and follow them. This is called "blowback" and the 9/11 Commission Report mentioned it many times.

Osama bin Laden said several times that he wanted us over there, so that they could pick off thousands more than the thousands killed on 9/11. He and men like him fought a very similar war (that we funded) against the USSR... and they BANKRUPTED them. Are they not doing the same exact thing to us???

If there was a legitimate reason to go to war in Afghanistan, then the US Constitution states the process of going to war- a Declaration of War must be passed in the Congress. The President has NO AUTHORITY to go to war without a declaration.

I believe we had sufficient cause to go after Osama Bin Laden- to go get him, and to come home. We have started a war of nation building in Afghanistan with no stated goals and no end in sight. For the trillions spent, it took a DECADE to capture one man.  A majority of the US population is against this war- it is time to come home! We cannot afford our foreign policy anymore. Imagine what we could do if the trillions spent on war were spent on education? Imagine what we could do if Americans weren't taxed so excessively to pay for this foreign policy? What has this country gained from it?

So, its been 10 years, trillions of dollars spent, thousands of our soldiers dead, tens of thousands of innocent civilians dead... for what? To kill one man that the USA once funded to shoot down USSR helicopters? How many terrorists have been created in the process?

Now that the man is dead, perhaps we can end these unconstitutional wars of aggression.

fantastic.

As of now, I have one really nice brown turkey and a yet untested Celeste, both in ground, about 3' tall... March cannot come soon enough.

So, hopefully within the next couple of weeks I will be purchasing an O'Rourke and a Hollier.. thanks for the help.

I am looking to buy a yellow fig tree.

I have several dark varieties but no green/yellow figs- I am looking at the three most common yellow figs that seem to perfectly fit my 7b climate in the NC Piedmont.

The three varieties are Kadota, Alma, and Excel. In the variety descriptions on the most reputable breeder websites, the details for these three seem to be very similar. Could you guys recommend one above the others? I am looking for which is the sweetest, largest fruit size, flavor, hardiness in zone 7b, etc....

much thanks.

looks like Brown Turkey... I tried a Brown Turkey variety a couple of months ago that sounds like yours- small figs, sweet but not just sweet... almost a tartness edge to it.
