Afghanistan opium at record high
27 August 2007 http://tinyurl.com/2qj5yy
The UN says opium production in Afghanistan has soared to record levels, with an increase on last year of more than a third.
The UN Office on Drugs and Crime report says the amount of opium produced there has doubled in the last two years.
It says Helmand province is now the biggest single drug-producing area in the world, surpassing whole countries such as Colombia.
Afghanistan now accounts for more than 93% of the world's opiates.
Despite billions of dollars of aid and tens of thousands of international troops, the report says 193,000 hectares of opium poppies are being grown in Afghanistan.
'Insurgency link'
"The results are very bad, terrifyingly bad, because cultivation has increased by 17% to an historic level," said Antonio Maria Costa, executive director of the Office on Drugs and Crime. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/6965115...

Afghanistan: An Opium Grower's Paradise
Apr 15, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/ch7w236
As Afghanistan becomes more and more unstable, it has once again become a haven for opium poppy growers. Opium, the active ingredient in heroin, is a huge moneymaker, especially in the southern portion of Afghanistan. The reason for this growth in the south is that it no longer has a strong US presence. It is now a Taliban stronghold.
In the past number of years, cultivation has increased from 131,000 hectares in 2011 to 154,000 hectares in 2012. According to a report published by the United Nations, the 2013 figures will be larger than that of 2012.

Afghanistan is the world’s largest producer of opium, the raw ingredient in heroin, and last year provided about 75 per cent of the global crop — a figure that may jump to 90 per cent this year due to increased cultivation.

Mitt Romney was right (on taxes)

Republicans have labored long and hard at re-inventing the wheel.

We had a tax code that was funding our government and giving us solid and sustainable growth for more than six decades since FDR.

Then along comes George W. Bush and his radical conservative brain trust with the bright idea of cutting the governments tax revenues in half, and mostly for the rich.

The economy immediately shot forward in a spasm of investor speculation, followed late in his last term by a calamitous financial crash.

A piece of advice from Republican tax policy experts. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

CBS reporting that explosion at JFK library WAS NOT a bomb.

It appears to have been a coincidental accident and fire that took place at the same time as the bombing.

YOU PEOPLE FAILED YOUR-SELVES!

It is time for each and every individual to make a choice! Should you be able to choose your own destiny?! If you think so then read my proposal for “absolute freedom” and why this should be the foundation for the constitution for the United States of America!

In science all scientific method can conclude ABSOLUTES when the universal constant principle is applied to empirical evidence. The “Law of non-contradiction” is the founding principles when discovering a scientific moral law.

I now present to you the universal constant moral scientific law that equally applies to men and women on planet earth. This law is universal which means all governments of the world should up-hold to ensure all men and women are protected on planet earth. This universal constant moral scientific law is founded in the principles of the law of non-contradiction.

The founding fathers of the United States of America saw and explained this self-evident truth backed with empirical evidence when it comes to creating a law that governed human behavior on a universal level. I now verify the statement with modification.“All men and women are created equal” which originated as “All men are created equal”!

This is a self- evident truth verified with empirical evidence that is not made up by man but discovered by man.

The universal scientific moral law that should govern both man and woman equally by all governments in the world is the innate quality found in the laws of nature called “The ability to choose” without coercive or physical force by no other man, woman or world government.

I hold this scientific moral law to be self-evident (un-deniable) because every man and woman on planet earth is born innately with this natural quality governed by the laws of nature. No civil law should conflict with his natural law that governs all if such a civil law exists it is deemed as corrupted.

Fine, you post about anything you want.

Not much you can do about it.

Right now my husband is home from work and I need a break from the news coverage of the bombing.

Yeah, so? It's the time of changes. We are becoming a third world country. You will still blame the white man for the criminal actions of others. Nothing news. Too bad our commander in chief was not running in the marathon.

P.S. News like this no longer have an effect on me. I have the progressives to thank (not) for that.

Are you going to spam the pages every minute or two giving more breaking news on this tragic event?

He also served in the Vietnam War, as a battalion and brigade advisor with the Vietnamese Marines. He was interviewed by Jeffrey Steinberg on May 6, 2004.

So you're telling me Obama's not only ineffectual at domestic affairs, he's impotent as commander in chief as well. He has the power to win any war, anytime, anywhere, if we lose anything, it's because he chooses to.

How many people have warned you and your friends of this happening Rose?
I think you called them extremist and fear mongers. How much more tragedy is it going to take
before you accept why it is important to adhere to our constitution and laws.
Or do you still need more tragedy to occur before you can get it?

The only country that WON, Big Time, is Iran, because Bush freed the Shites in Iraq who are loyal to Iran.

Naturally you wont hear that truth on corporate mainstream media and corporate rightwing media.
