In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

What is Winning in Afghanistan

And corporate suits, in their corporate offices, are controlling the trade around the World!

Opium is winning the Afghan war

October 31, 2010 - THE parliamentary debate on Australia's involvement in Afghanistan has involved little mention of its implications for our other big conflict, the war on drugs. In Afghanistan, the US and its allies are, once again, propping up Third World drug producers for political purposes.

According to the UN World Drug Report 2010, Afghanistan has produced 90 per cent of the world's illicit opium in recent years. A lot of that has come from the province in which Australian troops are stationed.

As for the government we support, the US reporter Gretchen Peters says in her 2009 book Seeds of Terror: "No one has much hope for the corrupt and inept administration of Hamid Karzai. The President of Afghanistan, an ethnic Pashtun, derives much of his political support from the country's Pashtun-dominated south, where he has resisted efforts to curtail poppy cultivation." {read rest}

Add in theater to legitimize the long running so called War on Drugs.......

Afghan president condemns US-Russia drugs operation

30 October 2010 - Afghan President Hamid Karzai reacted with fury Sunday to the first joint US-Russian anti-drugs operation in the war-torn country, saying it happened without permission and violated Afghan sovereignty.

"No organisation or institution has the right to carry out such military operations inside the territory of our country without permission and agreement from the Islamic Government of Afghanistan," a statement from his office said.

"Afghanistan condemns this act by NATO and announces that such unilateral operations are a clear violation of Afghan sovereignty as well as international law, and any repetition will be met by the required reaction from our side."


Russia frequently criticises what it describes as the inadequate anti-drug policies of United States and NATO forces in Afghanistan, which it says lead to an increased flow of drugs into Russia through Central Asia. {read rest}
