Evil prevails...
and opium too in Afghanistan
20/09/2007

The relationship between Afghanistan and opium dates back to time immemorial. While terrorism has destroyed the country, it is perhaps drug which will wipe out the nation from the world map. Production of opium is growing frighteningly & even defeat of Taliban has not reduced its production. It has a shocking 193,000 hectares under opium cultivation which produced 8,200 tonnes of opium this year, which is a 34% increase over last year. No other country in the world has ever cultivated on such a deadly scale. Close investigation has indicated that opium production in poverty stricken central & northern region is decreasing while that of in rich southern region has detonated to an unprecedented level. Five provinces from south supply 70% of total opium while Hilmand alone provides 50% of country’s production. It is easier to drop missiles and kill a few perpetrators but more difficult to change a way of life and lure of easy money which is imbibed in a civilisation for centuries. Perhaps NATO and the US are learning it the hard way now.
