This week the 64th British soldier to die in Afghanistan, Corporal Mike Gilyeat, was buried. All the right things were said about this brave soldier, just as, on current trends, they will be said about one or more of his colleagues who follow him next week.
...
But the key question is this: what are our servicemen dying for? There are glib answers to that: bringing democracy and development to Afghanistan, supporting the government of President Hamid Karzai in its attempt to establish order in the country, fighting the Taliban and preventing the further spread of radical Islam into Pakistan.
...
Afghanistan was not militarily winnable by the British Empire at the height of its supremacy. It was not winnable by Darius or Alexander, by Shah, Tsar or Great Moghul. It could not be subdued by 240,000 Soviet troops. But what, precisely, are we trying to win?
...
The answer is this. The achievement is the highest harvests of opium the world has ever seen.

Now Afghanistan has the ability to not only harvest record opium amounts but also manufacture heroin. One stop drug shopping courtesy of NATO and liberal border enforcement of neighboring countries. The CIA won't blink, why should they. Afterall their expertise in the global drug trade has now made for higher profit margins and little in terms of crop eradication with their puppet regime running this circus. As per the article the Talibans only good was stomping out the drug trade which now appears to be run with confidence by government officials. No I don't want the Taliban back thats not the point here any sane individual can reason that. It's the innocent soldiers dying all in the name of keeping drugs flowing. The article stated it clearly. If a quarter million Soviet soldiers and numerous other feeble attempts were made to bring Afghanistan out of the dark ages why would this attempt be any different. The troops should be used, amongst other things, to destroy the crops which in turn will impact the enemies finances.

Doctors propose using Afghan opium as NHS pain-killer

"Afghan heroin available on the NHS? It may sound far-fetched but that is what two leading doctors from the British Medical Association have put forward as a way of dealing with a shortage of the drug. Heroin is used by doctors under its medical name diamorphine as a pain-killer for the terminally ill and after serious operations. But there is currently a severe shortage of legal diamorphine in the UK.."


Perhaps the British troop presence in the Afghan poppy-fields has been sponsored by the pharaceutical companies eager to get their hands on opium at rock-bottom prices to sell to the NHS?

Nice find Citizen Smith


The irony here is laughable. Actually using the very same product that they are apparently attempting to eradicate(and doing a lousy job of it to if I might add). I don't think the CIA would take to kindly as to having their "cut" infringed upon, especially if it meant serving a medical purpose. The CIA needs that money to help fund other operations and keep their nefarious activities moving along.


Gary Webb must be rolling in his grave as we speak. (different drug but same purpose I'm sure).
