What happens after the war ends, the Taliban are defeated? Drugs!
We have been hearing concerns over corruption in Afghanistan and that the new government is to set up a new policing force, like the FBI to fight and contain corruption.
United Nations would be very concerned that after the Taliban have been defeated they would be in fact helping to set up a Democratic Islamic Drug state. It’s very obvious that as soon as the country is handed back to the people of Afghanistan, the drug trade will be very rampant again.
Farmers are still planting poppies and the drug trade continues on a smaller scale even why Afghanistan has been occupied by United Nation forces. Even the new boss’s brother is said to have links into this trade.
By freeing the people from the Taliban’s cruel and crooked influence the UN forces will be part and parcel helping to place a new bunch of crooks in the seat of power. This is a country where the elitist have made their money out of drugs. The elitist are the only well educated citizens that have the educational qualities to run the country at local level and the national seat of power.
Actually the same but a differing problem can be found in Iraq where the elitist lets say have made their money out of more respectable crimes.
Perhaps there is a need to keep a UN force in Afghanistan to police and destroy drug crops? This of course will be a factor coming under scrutiny in Europe as Europe’s streets would be the main market place for drugs from Afghanistan.
Note: When I wrote this early this morning I had not researched about the drugs issues being brought into the public eye concerning troop expansion in Afghanistan. evidently they have.
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Taliban are in much stronger financial shape than al-Qaeda and rely on a wide range of criminal activities to pay for attacks on U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan, a senior Treasury Department official said Monday.
David Cohen, the department's assistant secretary for terrorist financing, said the extremist group extorts money from poppy farmers and heroin traffickers involved in Afghanistan's booming drug trade. The Taliban also demand protection payments from legitimate Afghan businesses, he said during a speech at a conference on money laundering enforcement.
Cohen's assessment came as President Barack Obama and his top advisers discuss whether many more troops may be needed in the 8-year-old Afghanistan conflict. A critical part of the deliberations is whether the fight should be a more narrow one against al-Qaeda or a broader battle against the Taliban-led insurgency.
