OK,legalise the drugs, as I said yesterday and a Brit MP said today.
If you legalise drugs, this is what you get -
1. The end of criminals running drug rings.
2. The end of young girls being forced into prostitution.
How great to be rid of that!

The Taliban and Al quaeda equal freedom for whom?
Men. Forget the women under their regime.
If you call a freedom fighter someone who hates women and cuts off their noses, so be it.

But it is the Taliban that grows the drugs today, which finances their war against the CF. This shows us that they set aside their own Islamic law when they need the cash, in effect just another wacky "the ends justifies the means" sect.
Most of Afghanistan's drug production today originates from the Helmand Province, where the Taliban is omni-present and the CF only controls the bases where they are entrenched, If they destroy the drug crops, the farmers will side with the Taliban, and that does not fit with Obama's new 'win the locals over' strategy.
