Yet More Of Your Tax Money Thrown At Poppystan

Afghanistan to get millions to reduce poppy cultivation

"The US government has made a commitment to provide financial aid to Afghan provinces that have reduced or eliminated the production of opium. The United States signed a memorandum of understanding on Monday acoording to which it agreed to give $38.7 million to 27 Afghan provinces that eliminated or significantly reduced poppy production in the world's biggest supplier country, AFP reported.
According to the MOU, the money will be handed over to Afghanistan's counter-narcotics ministry, which will disperse the cash to the 27 different provinces to finance development or alternative crops."

Yet more bullshit. The opium crop is worth billions and a few million dollars is a drop in the bucket. It won't stop opium production but it will probably cut it back just enough so that it'll be worth more for the fascists when it's sold.

The Geopolitics behind the phoney US war in Afghanistan

"Behind all the deceptive official debate over how many troops are needed to “win” the war in Afghanistan, whether another 30,000 is sufficient, or whether at least 200000 are needed, the real purpose of US military presence in that pivotal Central Asian country is obscured."
"The US military is in Afghanistan for two reasons. First to restore and control the world’s largest supply of opium for the world heroin markets and to use the drugs as a geopolitical weapon against opponents, especially Russia. That control of the Afghan drug market is essential for the liquidity of the bankrupt and corrupt Wall Street financial mafia."

F. William Engdahl definitely knows his shit when it comes to geo-politics.

The NWO means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but the main thing I take from it is that not only is there "intent of power", but "the power of intent."

Engdahl cuts straight to the chase, like Chris Floyd and Kurt Nimmo, I really appreciate essayists who don't mince words.

Thanks, Irish, the mrs is actually going to cook the traditional meal, been a while.
