http://www.tni.org/article/learning-lessons-taliban-opium-ban

With such confusion with the division between licit and illicit production of opium and inclusion of the pharmaceutical industry, with their substitutes one must wonder who determines who grows the licit variety.

And why the US encouraged the Taliban to ban their production and paid them $43m for what was said to be aimed at their drought. As if for some an irrigation plan. Afghanistan's only crop and it was banned. Why not rename it licit production?

But Australia is by far the largest licit producer, followed by India, France, Spain, Turkey and Hungary.

So the SB story concerns Turkey and money laundering so we must be looking at illicit opium production.

After the Taliban complied with the ban and took the $43m along comes other folks to hit them with sanctions.

Don't tell us that 9/11 was just a part of another Opium War and was used to kill to birds with one stone. Empire building and to get Afghanistan back into the fold of opium producers.

If so, then in comparison 9/11 was just a battle within a major war and as with most battles each one bares a relatively small part in the whole. Single battles become our forgotten history to that of who was victorious and who was not.

If Afghanistan farmers are now doing what they do best and the status quo has been restored who won the war?

"Don't tell us that 9/11 was just a part of another Opium War and was used to kill to birds with one stone. Empire building and to get Afghanistan back into the fold of opium producers."

As I said before 911 had many angles to it, one of those, additional “benefit” is increased Heroin production by Afghanistan with large portion of export going to Russian Asian Republics and to Russia. Empires have always been dope pushers, not much has changed. Keeps population down and creates additional source of income for connected banks to launder drug money, also builds up an illegal army of murderers who could come handy at the next “People’s Revolution”.

After all, 911 was not a cheap operation(just look at all advertising expenses), they should've thought about where ROI would come from.
