Through extortion and taxation, the Taliban are believed to reap as much as $300 million a year from Afghanistan’s opium trade, which now makes up 90 percent of the world’s total. That is enough, the Americans say, to sustain all of the Taliban’s military operations in southern Afghanistan for an entire year. [SOURCE]

    earl, i believe the title says “us soldiers”. but youre right, there is an army soldier in there.

    the war on drugs is funded by corporations that actually make drugs. go figure, the ones we trust to keep us safe are funding a war against the ones that enlighten us, give us pleasure, helps cope with pain brought on by occular infections/disfunctions; working with the government i cant really say too much in favor of this topic, but i can say i dont see any reason why certain drugs are illegal.

    watch penn and tellers show ‘Bullshit’. explains alot.
