I thought for sure that there were at least SOME steps occurring to limit this, in as much as heroin is one of the WORST and MOST DANGEROUS illegal drugs in existence, and we have been in Afghanistan now for years.

But apparently, NATO is just now getting around to addressing this problem. What is more, they are going to attack only those drug lords who are "facilitating the insurgency", and leave the friendly drug lords out!

I don't really get this. I can't believe NATO is scared to tackle this problem. (NATO has a lot of guns.) It is something else. The only thing I can think of is that there are a lot of NATO members receiving drug money.

Of course, what is NEVER said in these matters is exactly which Drug lords will be attacked, and which will miraculously continue to produce opium for the rest of the world.

Maybe Heroin was getting too cheap and they need to suck some of the reserve notes out of the black market; or am I being too cynical.
