Freedom on the march, in the form of marching powder 

Well, it turns out Bush had no plan to win the peace in Afghanistan either—except to turn the country over to narcotics dealing warlords.

More than three years after installing a pro-U.S. government, Afghanistan (news - web sites) has been unable to contain opium poppy production and is on the verge of becoming a narcotics state, a presidential report said Friday.

The report said the area in Afghanistan devoted to poppy cultivation last year set a record of more than 510,000 acres, more than triple the figure for 2003. Opium poppy is the raw material for heroin.

Let's just hope the CIA isn't selling heroin to the troops in Iraq, like they did in VietNam.
