Afghan Poppy Crop Sets Record, Duh?????
We have this place occupied, and they have a record crop., Now supply 95% of worlds heroin.
Are we helping the farmers, or what???
Something wrong with this picture. !!!!!

Looks like our CIA, is still in the drug business, even after Iran/Contra.

Did you ever get over to heli-torque.com to see heli-ops photos? They are an incredible collection from his tour in Afghanistan.

http://www.helitorque.com/portal/mo...iewtopic&t=1980

I remembered one of his photos:

Looks like a great year for the crops!

In the photos, there is such an incredible dynamic range between poverty and avarice. Either your living in a mud hut or you live on a spread with your own helicopter - there seems to be no in between.

Look at that farmers house. Not bad for a farmer eh? It dosen't look like he pays his help minimun wages.

No wonder they want to come to the US. Some of it looks like West Texas. Warlords own the best places and biggest farms. Everyone else is just peons.Honey, where's the check book, it's Fedex again

Houston Chronicle says the crop is worth 38 billion on the street, do you really think our leaders are going to pass up that check.
Remember, we are nothing but a number anymore, so the consequences of heroin hitting the street, is no biggy. Just creates more funds for the lawyers, cops, judges, and the penitentiarys'
All part of a great plan. No manufacturing base in the US, so sub it with dope. Afterall, its the biggest money maker in the world.
Why else would the crop not have been destroyed. Big Pharma is getting their cut also, got to keep the med industry working. Second biggest money maker in the US.
Next time you get your morphine drip in the hospital, thank Hamid Kharzai, and the CIA.
Shadow government at work.

I agree with the agent orange comment. Rock salt does wonders for vegetation control, too. 38 billion dollars will fund a lot of weapons purchases.

I can't really fathom the crap that goes on with our military and CIA. No wonder that we are becoming the most hated country on the globe. Seems here lately, that if its not rotten, we don't support it. Government talking about not giving em 430 million drug interdiction money, if the don't cut the production, not elimanate, just cut it down some.Honey, where's the check book, it's Fedex again

"Houston Chronicle says the crop is worth 38 billion on the street, do you really think our leaders are going to pass up that check."

Who exactly is getting that check?

"Remember, we are nothing but a number anymore, so the consequences of heroin hitting the street, is no biggy. Just creates more funds for the lawyers, cops, judges, and the penitentiarys'"

Is heroin consumption per capita any different now compared to say 1970?

"All part of a great plan."

Conspiracy time. Where is that plan spelled out? How does it add up, and to what? Is Cheney the head of this by chance?

"No manufacturing base in the US, so sub it with dope. Afterall, its the biggest money maker in the world."

I thought oil was the big moneymaker, no futures market for opium on Wall Street last time I checked. Also, it is clear you don't know the first thing about economics, GDP, growth, unemployment, mean incomes.

"Why else would the crop not have been destroyed. "

Ok, do like Obama says, bomb our friends. And who will feed the afgans when their only cash income is destroyed? Do you think you can destroy this crop successfully? (seriously, just try to answer that)

"Big Pharma is getting their cut also, got to keep the med industry working. Second biggest money maker in the US."

I see, evil corporation Pharma makes all their money on opium derivatives. AND, somewhere they are getting a check, which I am sure is shown on their financial disclosures. You believe that? If you do, you are truly ignorant of the economics of the the pharmaceutical industry.

"Next time you get your morphine drip in the hospital, thank Hamid Kharzai, and the CIA."

I see, CIA priority is opium production. Next time you need a life saving new drug, pass on it and hold to your values.

"Shadow government at work."

Ahh, the shadow government now comes into play. Is it free masons, trilateral commission or skull-n-bones?

Where can I join this force of total authority?

I'd prefer to spray it towards you Jimco, and your moronic attacks on the US.

You don't even know your right from left. You are clearly a special needs individual. I guess if you don't know right from left, you cannot be expected to know right from wrong.

I don't give a rats a$$ about right or left. Right and wrong, is the name of the game. Tell me that we are not condoning the poppy crop, since there production has made record gains in the last 2 years. We occupy the country, and the Taliban is the poppy producers. We could not control it , if we wanted too???
Get a grip man. This is not Alice in Wonderland stuff.

Jimco, you are full of hate and ridiculous spew that no one believes or cares about. Go get a real life and a real perspective on world events and politics (starting with the Afgan poppy issue). Your views are myopic, naive and deluded. The world is more complicated than your simpleton perspective of supposed right and wrong, blaming everything that is wrong on the USA.

Alice in wonderland was an acid trip, and your perspective reflects that culture. Life is not a Dead show and Jerry is definitely dead. Step away from the bong and the keyboard long enough to read up a little more and gain some measure of perspective which might be more intriguing in a conversation. Right now, you are just angry noise. Maybe you like to hear your own echo, but don't kid yourself into believing your opinions make any difference. They don't. Because they are not formulated with any measure of analysis or pertinent fact.

Stet: Why don't you enlighten us with your wisdom of world events. I noticed that you are a responder and not a poster. Been that way since 3 years ago when I first got on RR. You seem to have an opinion of everyone elses posts, but you never add to the conversation, just tear down everything that gets mentioned.
Why don't you get original, and post something that we can consider.
Really funny, how most of my posts go for 20 pages or more, and most of it doesn't come from guys like you; There is some good information being exchanged here, till you attack rats come on.

Do some reading:

I've posted and responded with plenty of analytical insight and am always interested in debate with those who show knowledge at or beyond my own.

You seem to be unable to respond to any of my challenges to your empty theories with substantive analysis or fact. Case in point, poppy profits of pharmaceutical corporations, the ones you call "big Pharma" in your smug and demeaning tone.

Maybe you can read about a real "big Pharma" company here:

http://www.biogenidec.com/

This is a real company, not a fantasy like you cling to to rationalize your hate for American capitalism and innovation, and your resulting failure to succeed and be recognized in our society.

Pardon me for stepping into your "20 pages" of backslapping with others of your caliber to state you are full of yourself and fundamentally uninformed.

Two last thoughts:

"ignorance is bliss"
"the sound and the fury of a babbling idiot, signifying nothing"

Emphasis on fury in your case Jimco. The last word is yours.

Yep Sealer: Have known that for over 3 years. He was the first attack rat that I encountered on RR. You say right, he says left. You say up, he says down. I think he was the author and script writer for "Point-Counter Point.
Just a reactionary type, with a greater than thou , mentality. Go back and check his posts for 3 years, probably nothing more than a glorified Havoc.
Let him rant:He will undo himself.

Yea Stet, only the intelligent and hard working succeed in America. It's not like the son's of the privileged have an upper hand in this wonderland society of ours. In this fair society you will never see a well connected inarticulate moron as President, right. Hey Stet I bet you can't wait to see if your next Hollywood Daddy figure is going to run. I think your going to be disappointed when Freddy goes back to Hollywood.

I think we need to read up on the Libertarian party, huh??? Ron Paul ran under it at one time. I think he might do it again, if the media doesn't give him some air time.
I think he is going to surprise some people this time.

No he wont, he will stir the pot good which cant be bad but thats about it. I actually like a lot of what he says, but there are a few things that he just flat falls off the wagon on.

You might also look at the Constitution party, they get even less press than the Libertarians but might appeal more to some.
