"The U.S. military bombed about 300 tons of poppy seeds in a dusty field in southern Afghanistan Tuesday in a dramatic show of force designed to break up the Taliban’s connection to heroin…
The military dropped a series of 1,000-pound bombs from planes on the mounds of poppy seeds and then followed with strikes from helicopters.
Tony Wayne, with the U.S. State Department, said the strikes on poppy seeds, that can be used to make opium and heroin, is part of a strategy shift for the military to stop the Taliban and other insurgents from profiting from drugs." http://www.registan.net/index.php/2009/07/22/what-is-going-on-in-th...What is going on with the poppy fields?
Thanks for letting us know the volume of psychotropic (psychotomimetic) substances traveling down the throats of hapless millions of Americans of all color, race and creed. I am going to research these named substances to get a fair amount of toxicity buried deep in them. No wonder the growing army of recruits into commercialized prisons and a flowing stream of the newly-stoned in Hollywood engaging the lenses of the paparazzi.Oh, say that with all due respect.
