From the WSJ

U.S. to Target Afghan Drug Trade -

" take stronger measures to combat opium production"

Just one more attempt at the same old thing. Unless the world is ready to subsidize the Afghan farmer after destroying his 'cash' crop, this will go nowhere.


  1. Talk about a losing proposition. The "war" on drugs has been an abject failure that has diverted resources to the warehousing of young black males without reducing drug use one iots.

  2. The war on drugs is a crime in itself. Imagine our economy if we could have just a tenth of the money spent on this futile effort over the past 30+ years.
