Shirt of Mongolia

I was getting ready to put one of my Christmas gifts (a long sleeve shirt by VanHeusen) into the wash, when I saw the tag.... "Made in Mongolia". Hmmm. Hadn't seen that before. I have seen clothing made in the US, China, Mexico, other various and sundry Asian and Latin American places, even Madagascar. Mongolia? Nope.

Looked at the company website, and sure enough - a "source" dot in Mongolia.

My only experience with Mongolia (besides the shirt, that is) was the team of Mongolian Army soldiers that were at Bagram AF to help the Afghans with demining and training on artillery. I suppose if any country has a long time military tradition, it would be Mongolia, heh heh.

An interesting place, if you care to learn a bit about it, start with this.

I saw Mongolian Soldiers in Kabul...saw some just last week here in Kandahar.
Imagine that....Mongolians in Afghanistan?? What would Ghengis Khan say???

Ghengis would say "Have you built a pyramid out of human skulls in Kabul yet?"

Chinggis Khaan would probably say something like "Yeah, been here before guys" c.f. the Hazara.

As for B.D.'s - this place is the biggest scam around - they set up shop in UB just so they could get some street cred - please don't believe the hype. This is not Mongolian food.
