Maybe it's time the 8 nation alliance comes clean and apologizes formally and publicly to the Chinese people for what we did 110 years ago? I think that would be a honorable thing to do, personally.
Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. Based on UNODC data, there has been more opium poppy cultivation in each of the past four growing seasons (2004–2007) than in any one year during Taliban rule. Also, more land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 92% of the opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan.
The International Narcotics Control Board estimates that 11.5 tons[clarification needed] of oxycodone were manufactured worldwide in 1998, which grew to 75.2 tons in 2007. Of all countries, the United States had the highest total consumption of oxycodone in 2007 (82% of the world total of 51.6 tons). In addition, in 2007 the U.S. had the highest per capita consumption of oxycodone, followed by Canada, Denmark, Australia, and Norway

Wow you remember that? You must be pretty old. it was over a 100 years ago. Oh also your memory is going too. because At the time China was in a civil war. And one of the sides decided to massacre a city. It was called the Raping of Nanking or how ever you spell it. Your entire thread is deceptive and historically inaccurate.

Must be some seriously flawed schools in the Nation. I remember getting taught about the Opium Wars and Boxer Revolution in public high school and onto college. Not sure why this thread gets 47+ flags because people skipped those days in history class.

I'm not sure where you went to school, OP, but when I was a Freshman in High school, we were taught about it. Also, my daughter just finished a lesson on the Boxer revolution. Guess that kind of kills your claims that this isn't being taught in our schools. Also, you call the coalition the NWO. I have to admit, if the NWO has been in existence that long, they are not very efficient and advancement of their agenda is not getting accomplished.
