    So by going into a Church with the intent to kill as many as possible does not show you that they should be punished to the fullest extent of the law!

        No Larry, Farooq is incorrect. The Taliban stopped the production of Hashish in order to keep their own troops from getting stoned all the time. Opium/Heroin was exported to be consumed by infidels and was not only tolerated but managed as a major source of revenue by both the Taliban & their ISI handlers. Never trust anyone named Farooq.
        Read Ahmed Rashid's new book "Descent into Chaos" to understand the truth of all this insanity.

        Yalobi aka Mohammad A Dar spouts his rubbish here because he is under the misapprehension that people think everything he posts is of interest. he used to post comments in the Dawn newspaper (India) until he got himself blocked.

      Farooq is incorrect.

      The Taliban shut down opium production for only one season. This was to purely drive prices up because they were so low for all the years they were cultivating during the failed regime.

  6. U. No Who

    Bush & GOP put the Drug Traffickers back in business after the Taliban shut them down. The CIA increased their drug market share from 60% of world market to 90%. If Obama shuts them down & shuts BP oil down, the CIA will do to him what they did to Wallace, King, Kennedys & what Neil Bush's friend did to Reagan. I would give up all jobs to see China & the other Communists go down. Obama kissed BP's a_s, just like the rest of them did. The Demoncrat & GOP leaders are traitors. Up with the People and down with the GOP & Demoncrat scu_.

        Sorry Tom,I didn't post the above. The Russians were trying to save a tottering Communist government from falling. The Russians were motivated by their ideology whereas The NATO forces are motivated by their own greed as they're aspiring to exploit Afghan resources!

      If you see how Russia and China is doing business today... The only difference between us and Them is the wages!!! Their way of Business is other wise the same as Ours... Otherwise They would have the American Manufactures there doing Their work for them!!!
