POPPY GO THE WEASELS

It warms my heart to think of  the opium producers of Afghanistan free to go on producing a steady 80% of the world’s opium. The countless tribes that carry on the tradition of “might makes right” in their various armed conflicts with other Afghani tribes can carry on their former Pre-Taliban lifestyle of armed conflicts with other Afghani tribes.. We have transformed, through American courage, blood and treasure,  a place where the lone traveler was doomed to the will of the highwaymen who picked them clean and left them for dead in a ditch, into a nation where the lone traveler can look forward to being picked clean by highwaymen and left for dead in a ditch.

I feel they all owe us a debt of gratitude at least, for ridding them of that pesky Taliban crew that was horning in on their  really primo dope slinging corner next to the on-ramp to the 8th century.
