Prior to the war, Afghanistan supplied 6-7% of opium products to the US. Today, over 60% comes from the country.
Suffice to say, Hillary is on Crack!
Cheaper than gas I guess. heh
Without joking we are supporting a drug infested country for what? For our military to die there for nothing.Wrong indeed!
The real joke is that the main-stream media sold the liberal narrative that Bush going into Afghanistan and Iraq was about securing the oil fields. It was never about oil! It was and has always been about controlling the poppy and marijuana fields throughout the entire region.
Think about it, mommy can't have her little yellow helper without opium. Heroin and opiates are cheaper for teenagers to buy on the streets than high quality kind bud. Prescription drugs have overtaken illicit/illegal drugs as the source for addictions. The imports of opium from the middle east have increase by the same amount the imports from Australia have been reduced. And, the Federal government cracked down on marijuana growers in California for growing a hybrid strain of Afghanny Kush.
