180's

Remember skateboarding? When you were just starting out, the first 'trick' you would learn was a 180? It looks like it's not just Israel pulling 180's in the parking lot.

The U.S. pulls a 180 on troop withdrawl.


The US administration has quietly reversed its goal from whittling down troop numbers in Iraq before the mid-term congressional elections in November.

The U.S. pulls a 180 on closing detention camps in Cuba.

The controversy over the US-run detention centre at Guantanamo Bay is to erupt anew with confirmation by the Pentagon that a new, permanent prison will open in the Cuban enclave in the next few weeks.

Camp 6, a state-of-the-art maximum-security jail built by a Halliburton subsidiary, will be able to hold 200 prisoners.

Thanks for all the hard work Halliburton. Now for your next trick, why don't you try another 180.
