The production of opium, the main ingredient in heroin, has risen sharply and distinctly in Afghanistan ever since the U.S. occupation started in 2001.


Scenes of US soldiers guarding opium (like in the picture above) in the country America has supposedly been fighting the longest war in history ever in even hit the US mainstream media.

Of course, when they did, establishment talking heads like Geraldo tried to spin it by saying the US military was just “tolerating the cultivation” of opium there…

What a damn joke. Is anyone still unclear as to why the US is still in Afghanistan after 15 years? (Well, that, and Pipelineistan.)

Well if you still aren’t 100% sure, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime has released a new report that opium production in the country is up 43% from last year.

In addition, the area used to farm the opium there has increased by 201,000 hectares, or 10%. The UNODC calls it “a worrying reversal in efforts”.

“Reversal”? Yeah right. Unless the real “efforts” are in growing the stuff in the first place.
