All the pipeline deals fell thru because there is not a stable goverment in afghanistan. I would assume that is why there is still no pipeline going thru that country.Originally posted by: Czar

a minor detail, eh?
Before sept 11, deligates from a few countries, US, UK, France, Germany and I think Russia were holding talks with the Taliban over a pipeline through Afghanistan. At one point the US reprisentative got tired how the Taliban reprisentatives were hard to negotiate with he threatened the use of force.
Maybe it was an idle threat or maybe an actual real threat.
