The first American narcotics experts to go to Afghanistan under Taliban rule have concluded that the movement's ban on opium-poppy cultivation appears to have wiped out the world's largest crop in less than a year, officials said today.
In a dramatic and little-noticed reversal of policy, the Taliban have told farmers in Afghanistan that they are free to start planting poppy seeds again if the Americans decide to launch a military attack.

Good news. US has no business being there and we never should have went. History has shown it is a tough place to try and control and hopefully no else ever goes back. Let the afghan people rule their own roost

Seriously though we should never have been there, I hope you get your boys home soon.
