TOR quite simply does not work in China. I find it hard to understand why so many people here cannot see how easy it is to recognise protocols connected with TOR, VPN, Proxies, etc. and block any user that uses any forbidden protocol. None of these things work, not because they block the hubs or the addresses but because the they block the protocols.

For someone that already has XP, the cost has already been paid and there is no future cost. If you try to force such a user to upgrade they will quite understandably object. Very few people who are being coerced feel a loyalty to the person (or company) that is coercing them and would rather go down the market and get a copy...

The Taliban, the government that we overthrew, still have offices, still exist, are still there to talk to, and will take over again as soon as we leave, and we will leave one day. There is no option. I do not like to get into these discussions because I do not like to defend the Taliban. I oppose all they stand for but we invaded their country and they defended bravely. I hope that I would be as brave if my country was invaded. We then dropped leaflets that said "if you surrender, you will be sent home". And those that were stupid enough to surrender were sent to Guantanamo along with lots of other poor unfortunates who got sold out because the CIA offered bounties to anyone that could inform on a terrorist, so every bent policeman in Yemen and Pakistan etc. gave the name of someone they did not like and received $1000.
