"Where were the women?" Presumably gestating the sons, but your question made me think, wouldn't Palin think this place was her spiritual home? I can just picture her in her stars and stripes bikini (under a burka, of course) letting rip with a Kalashnikov.

Just followed the link to Gates. Noticed a malapropism or more accurately a Freudian slip - he sez we shouldn't expect to create some central Asian "Vallhalla" over there. he probably meant Shagri La (not just mixing metaphors but srsly scrambling geography as Shangi La is considerably further East). Vallhalla of course being the place in Norse mythology where the souls of dead warriors go. Hey, wait a minute...
