Opium wars

[ #21918 ]
Dear Log,

«The Afghanistan Opium Survey 2004 found cultivation rose 64 percent over 2003, with 323,701 acres dedicated to the poppies that produce opium. That set a double record, Costa said: ``the highest drug cultivation in the country's history, and the largest in the world.''

[...]Most heroin from Afghanistan ends up on the streets of Europe.»

--"U.N.: Afghanistan Becoming 'Narco-State'"

Massive amounts of drug money pouring from European drug dealers into a war-torn country run by religious loonies, warlords, and the US military? Nothing could possibly go wrong with that situation!
