    Wasn't it nicer when they were just selling Hash? How'z about we encourage that for a while? I'd much rather deal with some hungry Hash heads than some steanch-of-death needle freaks.

    How many times do we have to do this?

    We did the same thing in Central America and now Cocaine is firmly entreanched. So now we do it again in Afghanistan and hope that Heroine doesn't take off? Please.

    Maybe this is the British model (China) all over again... Disrupt the region in such a manner that the folks you don't like get control of the $$ just in time for Opium to be available in large quantities. Then, when the upper class is too far gone to care, you take over for the long haul... :mad:

    Of course it could always be plain old short sighted stupidity.

    Well now honestly, how can you expect us to install a western-style democracy in Iraq without establishing a population of heroin addicts?

    When you establish a population of Warlords controlling the production and trade of the given illicit substance from whom you then choose the biggest badass to be your "elected" Jefe.
