Not quite, It was the taliban that shut down the poppy fields before the war started.
I think it’s Al Qauda your thinking of.

This is a continuation of the Mccain/Graham Neo con ideology of we can be over there for a hundred years.

What is the Objective?



The objective is that the CIA controls the poppy fields and sell the drugs to our children.
Drain the swamp and make America great again.

US deregulates pharmaceutical industry.

US invades country that has cash crop of poppy.

US has opiod abuse epidemic.

Yet to even suggest there's a relationship between any of these three facts is conspiratorial nonsense.




You forgot the part about PRIVATE Jails/Prisons for those who don't die from the harder 'Smack' this after getting cut off from their script. Those who don't die will have their funds eaten up in Court Costs/rehab/Court Costs/rehab again/Court Costs again. It isn't like 'The CrackWar™' where the Urban user/abuser copped a plea because that is what their Public Pretender told them to...

Oh and how about DICK Cheney and all the domestic canteen goods that Haliburton™ is raking in at $2.25/coke™

KNOW THIS: If Your personal retirement fund showed the same growth as the opium production once TheTaliban™ was ousted, You'd be reading this through the umbrella in Your boat drink...

Private Jails/Prisons and more laws- what could go wrong?

And the Trillion+ dollars worth of precious rare minerals and mining rights.

Why do these #hole countries have so much stuff we need?

What have they done with their natural resources for the last 1000 yrs?


Did they even know it?

I doubt they have had many geologist over the last 1000 years but you ask them about the Quran or which goat is the best and they will have the answer on the tip of their tongues.. Also not knowing one rock from another along with no infrastructure for delivery and export, probably has allot to do with it. Now that the Poppy exports seem to be doing quite well in the transportation department, as far as getting stuff out of country, all might solve the extraction problem for the minerals..?

I am not there so totally speculation on my part as all my contacts have retired or are dead...

After 16 years, 2,400 American lives, and $1 trillion spent, the US doesn't even control the streets around the US Embassy in Kabul.

When you are backed into the wall in the capital, I think we can conclude this war is lost. Time to cut our losses and go home.

And the Pakis are gonna have the last laugh! They say that if they could defeat the mighty Soviet Union in Afghanistan and drive them out (Sic), they can do the same to America - defeat the mighty US too with the help of the Taliban.

The bottom line is that the US will never vacate Afghanistan. There's too much at stake here.

The CIA needs the billions of dollars of drug money too to fund most of their black projects including the so called 'color revolutions' (regime changes).

Thousands of acres of Poopy are being protected not by the Taliban but by the CIA.



And I thought the US troops were supposed to destroy these Poppy fields, like setting them on fire etc. But.......



Getting them nicely packed to be shipped back home!!!!
