Prohibition et cannabis

Ils ne vous enseignent pas comment penser, ils vous enseignent quoi penser.

On écrivait récemment dans les journaux locaux que la production de cannabis ne s’essoufflait pas. On se félicite d’éradiquer des dizaines de milliers de plants de cannabis qui sont plantés dans les champs d’agriculteurs de la région et de saisir des centaines de kilo de cannabis en vrac, mais il demeure que le constat est décourageant pour eux: « On ne sent pas de baisse de la production sur notre territoire », a déclaré le coordonnateur de la Coalition Stop Cannabis et directeur général de la MRC de Nicolet-Yamaska, Donald Martel. « C’est pourquoi on souhaite mobiliser un maximum de personnes et d’organisations autour de cette problématique ».

L’objectif de la Coalition est de rendre le territoire hostile à la culture du cannabis, nous informe le journal local en question. Selon le directeur de la Coalition, plus les producteurs de cannabis subiront de répression et évolueront dans un milieu hostile à leurs activités, plus ils seront contraints de quitter le territoire. On fait appel à la population et la société en général pour « mettre l’épaule à la roue afin d’obtenir de meilleurs résultats ».

Mais voilà, devant tant d’effort et d’argent déployé sans réussir véritablement à décourager les « mariculteurs », n’y aurait-il pas lieu de questionner ses prémisses et interprétations à propos d’un problème perçu, particulièrement avec l’expérience acquise sur plusieurs décennies allant dans le même sens, démontrant que la guerre à la drogue ne va nulle part? Est-ce que notre expérience avec la prohibition de l’alcool, ayant eu cour aux États-Unis et au Canada il y a moins d’un siècle, fut concluante? Il ne faut pas une longue recherche pour trouver que la réponse est négative et qu’en fait, ce fut une vraie catastrophe. Les gens n’arrêtent pas pour autant de consommer ce qu’ils veulent et vont commencer à faire eux-mêmes leurs produits, ou les acheter d’autres sources, au risque et péril de leur santé et vie. De plus, en rendant une substance illégale, on ne fait que donner davantage de pouvoir et d’argent au crime organisé tout en poussant inévitablement les consommateurs dans leurs bras.

Si les résultats de la guerre contre la drogue sont médiocres, serait-ce parce que quelque part, il y a un problème fondamental avec la perception du dit « problème » et les solutions qui s’y rattachent?

Une guerre à la drogue qui s’apparente à la chasse aux sorcières

Avez-vous déjà remarqué que tout ce à quoi les gouvernements et autorités font la guerre se détériore davantage? Pensez à la guerre contre la pauvreté, la guerre au terrorisme, celle contre la prolifération des armes nucléaires, ou encore la guerre contre le crime organisé. La guerre à la drogue ne diffère en aucun point en ce qui a trait aux résultats: aucune de ces guerres n’a atteint son objectif; bien pire, la situation s’est détériorée chaque fois. Plus on y investit d’argent et qu’on augmente le niveau de répression, plus la situation se dégrade. N’y voyez-vous pas un pattern, une tendance?

War is peace. Ignorance is strength

The Nobel Peace Prize-winner’s latest war is largely secret. On 15 July, Washington finalised a deal with Colombia that gives the US seven giant military bases. “The idea,” reported the Associated Press, “is to make Colombia a regional hub for Pentagon operations... nearly half the continent can be covered by a C-17 [military transport] without refuelling”, which “helps achieve the regional engagement strategy”.

In his latest column for the New Statesman, John Pilger draws on George Orwell's inspiration to describe the Call of Obama: "attractive to liberal sensibilities, if not to the Afghan children he kills".

Barack Obama, winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, is planning another war to add to his impressive record. In
Afghanistan, his agents routinely extinguish wedding parties, farmers and construction workers with weapons such as the innovative Hellfire missile, which sucks the air out of your lungs. According to the UN, 338,000 Afghan infants are dying under the Obama-led alliance, which permits only $29 per head annually to be spent on medical care.


Pfizer to pay $1.3 billion criminal fine for misbranding its drugs

(NaturalNews) In the largest criminal fine ever levied against any drug company in the world, a unit of U.S.-based Pfizer, Inc. was sentenced to pay $1.3 billion in criminal fines and revenue forfeiture. It's all part of a $2.3 billion settlement announced by the Justice Department. The case centers around Pfizer's criminal "off-label marketing" of four drugs, including the painkiller Bextra. After whistleblowers filed lawsuits in three states, the U.S. Justice Department took an interest in the case and prosecuted Pfizer for criminal acts.

In the settlement, Pfizer admitted to a felony crime and agreed to pay $2.3 billion in fines and other fees. The investigation of Pfizer reportedly turned up evidence that Pfizer engaged in kickback payments to doctors for nine
drugs, including Viagra and Lipitor.

Part of the reason the penalty against Pfizer was so large is because the company was considered a "repeat offender" in promoting drugs for unapproved uses (which is a violation of federal law).

« A première vue, le Squalène semble être un bon choix d’adjuvant. Produit naturellement dans le foie, le Squalène est un précurseur pour le cholestérol. De plus, le Squalène peut être acheté en magasins bio sous sa forme la plus connue, « l’huile de foie de requin. » Cependant, le Squalène ingéré a un effet complètement différent sur le corps que le Squalène injecté. Quand les molécules de Squalène entrent dans le corps par une injection, même à des concentrations aussi faibles que 10 à 20 parts par milliard, cela peut conduire à des réponses auto-immunes destructrices, telles que l'arthrite et le lupus auto-immuns.

Plusieurs mécanismes ont été avancés pour expliquer cette réaction. Métaboliquement, le Squalène stimule une réaction immune excessive et non spécifique. Plus de deux douzaines d’articles scientifiques, passés en revue par les paires, dans dix laboratoires différents à travers les États-Unis, l'Europe, l’Asie, et l'Australie ont été publiés, documentant le développement de maladies auto-immunes chez les animaux soumis aux adjuvants basés sur le Squalène. Une proposition convaincante sur le pourquoi de ces réactions inclut le concept « de l'imitation moléculaire » dans laquelle un anticorps est créé contre le Squalène dans le MF59 peut interagir avec le Squalène du corps à la surface des cellules humaines. La destruction du Squalène propre au corps peut mener à des maladies auto-immunes débilitantes et liées au système nerveux central. »

« La cancérogénicité, nous (le Dr. Deborah Novicki de Novartis, une autre entreprise pharmaceutique) n'avons fait aucun essai pour la cancérogénicité de l'adjuvant MF59 ou aucun pour nos vaccins préventifs. Nous ne l'avons pas fait et nous ne prévoyons pas de le faire. »

Cette information a été trouvée dans un workshop du FDA sur les adjuvants et les vaccins préventifs et thérapeutiques à base d’adjuvants. Cette citation se trouve à la page 391.

Nurses got sick from the "swine flu" vaccine in Sweden

Yesterday 30 people had been reporting to the authorities in Sweden that they experienced such severe side effects that they felt the need to contact a hospital. Today the number is 110. The swedish newspaper Expressen is the only one in Sweden reporting on these cases and as usual this is most likely only the tip of a rather large iceberg.

Even so, Annika Linde, director of The Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI) manages to spin this into something positive by stating "The vaccine has more side effects than the normal flu vaccine. It is a sign that proves that it gives an effective protection."


Drugmakers, Doctors Rake in Billions Battling H1N1 Flu
October 14, 2009, ABC News

Americans are still debating whether to roll up their sleeves for a swine flu shot, but companies have already figured it out: vaccines are good for business. Drug companies have sold $1.5 billion worth of swine flu shots, in addition to the $1 billion for seasonal flu they booked earlier this year. These inoculations are part of a much wider and rapidly growing $20 billion global vaccine market. "The vaccine market is booming," says Bruce Carlson, spokesperson at market research firm Kalorama, which publishes an annual survey of the vaccine industry. "It's an enormous growth area for pharmaceuticals at a time when other areas are not doing so well," he says. As always with pandemic flus, taxpayers are footing the $1.5 billion check for the 250 million swine flu vaccines that the government has ordered so far and will be distributing free to doctors, pharmacies and schools. In addition, Congress has set aside more than $10 billion this year to research flu viruses, monitor H1N1's progress and educate the public about prevention. Drugmakers pocket most of the revenues from flu sales. But some say it's not just drugmakers who stand to benefit. Doctors collect copayments for special office visits to inject shots, and there have been assertions that these doctors actually profit handsomely from these vaccinations. Pharmacies also charge co-payments or full price of about $25 to those without insurance.

FDA Chairman Took $5 Million Donation – “No Conflict of Interest”

A medical supply manufacturer, by the name of Charles Gelman, decides out of the goodness of his heart to give $5 million dollars to the research center. His July donation is 50 times the annual budget of the research center. Mind you this is the same manufacturer that is saying that Bisphenol A is safe. Even though scientist who have published their research in the “Journal of the American Medical Association,” report that it is linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.


The Flu Pandemic
November 29, 1992, New York Times

The existence of the influenza vaccine ... may give us a sense of false security when it comes to the possibility of a pandemic outbreak of influenza. In fact, the flu vaccine must be reformulated each year to keep pace with the newest variants of this fast-mutating virus. The recipe for making the flu vaccine is simple. Take the current year's variant of the influenza virus, throw it into a stew with a strain of virus that leads to rapid proliferation. Incorporate the fast-growing strain into its own genes and start replicating it. From there, it's an easy matter to take those plentiful viruses and attenuate them for a flu vaccine. But the scientists who must determine what virus will cause the next year's illness run a high chance of being wrong. Some observers have put the odds of success at no better than 50-50. Even when they are right, the vaccine lasts only as long as that year's strain. Experts thought they saw big-league trouble coming in February 1976, when a few cases of severe swine flu broke out among young military recruits in Fort Dix, N.J. One of them, Pvt. David Lewis, 19, died. Lewis and four others were shown to be infected with the same H1N1 influenza virus as was responsible for the 1918 pandemic. But the swine-flu pandemic never materialized. In retrospect, some critics now say 40 million Americans were vaccinated for nothing. In fact, the only real illness to result from the swine flu adventure was caused by the vaccine: about one thousand people developed Guillain-Barre syndrome, a serious paralytic disease that could be traced directly to an immunological response to the inoculation.

Note: This article also discusses how new, intensified farming techniques for chickens, pigs, and ducks are the prime breeding ground for viruses which spread around the world. A powerful CBS 60 Minutes clip on the 1976 swine flu scare is available here. The intrepid 60 Minutes team shows how greed and blatant corruption led to the death of hundreds and paralysis of thousands as a direct result of the vaccine developed that year, while only one person died from the flu. For lots more, click here.

In late July, the CDC abruptly advised states to stop testing for H1N1 flu, and stopped counting individual cases. The rationale given for the CDC guidance to forego testing and tracking individual cases was: why waste resources testing for H1N1 flu when the government has already confirmed there's an epidemic?

Some public health officials privately disagreed with the decision to stop testing and counting, telling CBS News that continued


Rich NYC Mayor: Drug CEOs Don't Make Much Money
August 28, 2009, ABC News/Associated Press
http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=8382748

Billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg defended multibillion-dollar pharmaceutical companies and their chief executives on Friday, declaring that they "don't make a lot of money" and shouldn't be scapegoats in the health care debate. The mayor — and wealthiest person in New York City with a fortune estimated at $16.5 billion — made the comments on his radio show Friday. "You know, last time I checked, pharmaceutical companies don't make a lot of money, their executives don't make a lot of money," Bloomberg said. Pharmaceutical CEOs are known to make millions, with generous salaries, stock options and other perks. Abbott Laboratories Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Miles White's compensation was $25.3 million in 2008. The North Chicago, Ill.-based company saw profit rising 35 percent to $4.88 billion. Merck & Co.'s chief executive, Richard T. Clark, received a $17.3 million compensation package for 2008. The company's profit more than doubled to $7.8 billion. The mayor ... often battles criticism that he is out of touch with regular people. Earlier this year he declared "we love the rich people" while arguing against raising taxes on the wealthy. It was clear that Bloomberg or one of his aides realized his gaffe while he was still on the air Friday. The mayor, who has sought to cast himself as a financial and business expert, came back from a break and said he had looked up the pay of some pharmaceutical executives. "Some of them are making a decent amount, more than a decent amount of money," he said.


Open Letter To New York State Over Mandatory Vaccination

September 30, 2009, CBS News blog
http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/09/30/taking_liberties/entry5353611.shtml

As a group of healthcare workers, we are being mandated by a new New York state law to receive the seasonal flu vaccine and H1N1 vaccines. If we do not receive these vaccines by November 30th, that inaction is to be considered our resignation. We must sign a consent for the vaccines prior to their administration. The manufacturers have been granted immunity by the government; they cannot be sued for untoward effects. We do not want to receive these vaccines. Our educated studies of risks versus benefits conclude that the risks of the vaccine are greater than the possible benefits. All health care workers with direct patient care are mandated to receive the vaccine, so the coercion is real -- we cannot just go find a job "somewhere else." And the job market of 2009 does not offer opportunity in a different arena where we could still feed our families. We understand the fear that swine flu and influenza has generated. While our sources of information indicate that swine flu is not a pandemic, we know that the slanted research fed by the media offers results intended to frighten the public. We do not have the power to stop the fear that mass hype is able to generate. We hear the hype you are fed. We do not want to bring you harm, but we should not be forced into harm's way ourselves.

Wall Street On Track To Award Record Pay

October 14, 2009, Wall Street Journal
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125547830510183749.html

Major U.S. banks and securities firms are on pace to pay their employees about $140 billion this year -- a record high that shows compensation is rebounding despite regulatory scrutiny of Wall Street's pay culture. [Executives] at 23 top investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers and stock and commodities exchanges can expect to earn even more than they did the peak year of 2007, according to an analysis of securities filings for the first half of 2009 and revenue estimates through year-end by The Wall Street Journal. Total compensation and benefits at the publicly traded firms analyzed by the Journal are on track to increase 20% from last year's $117 billion -- and to top 2007's $130 billion payout. This year, employees at the companies will earn an estimated $143,400 on average, up almost $2,000 from 2007 levels. The growth in compensation reflects Wall Street firms' rapid return to precrisis revenue levels. Even as the economy is sluggish and unemployment approaches 10%, these firms have been boosted by a stronger stock market, thawing credit market, a resurgence in deal making and the continuing effects of various government aid programs. So far, regulators and lawmakers have focused on making sure pay practices discourage excessive risk-taking, leaving to companies the question of how much is too much.

Public must learn to 'tolerate the inequality' of bonuses, says Goldman Sachs vice-chairman

One of the City's leading figures has suggested that inequality created by bankers' huge salaries is a price worth paying for greater prosperity.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Well, they are certainly prosperous (on your tax dollars) but are you prosperous? Or is this just more "wealth is the sign of the elect" self-serving crap!


The Rich Have Stolen The Economy

Bloomberg reports that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s closest aides earned millions of dollars a year working for Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and other Wall Street firms. Bloomberg reports that none of these aides faced Senate confirmation. Yet, they are overseeing the handout of hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer funds to their former employers.

The gifts of billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money provided the banks with an abundance of low cost capital that has boosted the banks’ profits, while the taxpayers who provided the capital are increasingly unemployed and homeless.

JPMorgan Chase announced that it has earned $3.6 billion in the third quarter of this year.

Energy crisis is postponed as new gas rescues the world
October 11, 2009, The Telegraph (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/ambroseevans_pritchard/6299291/Energy-crisis-is-postponed...

Advances in technology for extracting [natural] gas from shale and methane beds have quickened dramatically, altering the global balance of energy faster than almost anybody expected. Tony Hayward, BP's chief executive, said proven natural gas reserves around the world have risen to 1.2 trillion barrels of oil equivalent, enough for 60 years' supply – and rising fast. "There has been a revolution in the gas fields of North America. Reserve estimates are rising sharply as technology unlocks unconventional resources," he said. The breakthrough has been to combine 3-D seismic imaging with new technologies to free "tight gas" by smashing rocks, known as hydro-fracturing or "fracking" in the trade. The US is leading the charge. Texas A&M University said US methods could increase global gas reserves by nine times to 16,000 TCF (trillion cubic feet). Shale gas is undoubtedly messy. Millions of gallons of water mixed with sand, hydrochloric acid and toxic chemicals are blasted at rocks. This is supposed to happen below the water basins but accidents have been common. Pennsylvania's [environmental authorities] have shut down a Cabot Oil & Gas operation after 8,000 gallons of chemicals spilled into a stream. The claims of BP ... are so extraordinary that we may need to rewrite the geo-strategy textbooks for the next half century.

Foreclosures: 'Worst three months of all time'

Despite concerted government-led and lender-supported efforts to prevent foreclosures, the number of filings hit a record high in the third quarter, according to a report issued Thursday.

"They were the worst three months of all time," said Rick Sharga, spokesman for RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed homes.

Iran to drop dollar from forex reserves

The Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (TPOI) announced this week that it plans to exclude the U.S. dollar from Iran’s foreign exchange reserves.

In line with this plan, Iran has informed Japan that it should use the yen instead of dollars to pay for the oil it buys from the Islamic Republic.

Danish Prime Minister Knew WTC Would Collapse

During a recent interview on Danish television, the former Prime Minister of Denmark admitted that he received a message 5 to 10 minutes beforehand telling him that the south tower of the World Trade Center was going to collapse, prompting questions as to why the victims and rescue personnel inside the building didn’t get the same warning.


As unemployment and poverty rise Obama turns to the financial elite for campaign cash

Under conditions of growing unemployment and deepening social misery for working people throughout the US, President Barack Obama flew into New York City Tuesday to raise millions of dollars in campaign donations from America’s financial elite.

He was expected to clear at least $3 million, largely from a Manhattan bash with an entry fee of $30,400 per couple—the maximum contribution allowed by law.

According to the Los Angeles Times, four of the seven co-chairs of the event and about a third of the guests come from the big banks and Wall Street.

2012 Isn't the End of the World, Mayans Insist
October 11, 2009, ABC News/Associated Press
http://abcnews.go.com/International/WireStory?id=8801083

Apolinario Chile Pixtun is tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the Mayan calendar supposedly "running out" on Dec. 21, 2012. After all, it's not the end of the world. Chile Pixtun, a Guatemalan, says the doomsday theories spring from Western, not Mayan ideas. A significant time period for the Mayas does end on the date, and enthusiasts have found a series of astronomical alignments they say coincide in 2012, including one that happens roughly only once every 25,800 years. But most archaeologists, astronomers and Maya say the only thing likely to hit Earth is a meteor shower of New Age philosophy, pop astronomy, Internet doomsday rumors and TV specials. It may sound all too much like other doomsday scenarios of recent decades — the 1987 Harmonic Convergence, the Jupiter Effect or "Planet X." But this one has some grains of archaeological basis. One of them is Monument Six. Found at an obscure ruin in southern Mexico during highway construction in the 1960s, the stone tablet [is] unique in that [it contains] the equivalent of the date 2012. The inscription describes something that is supposed to occur in 2012 involving Bolon Yokte, a mysterious Mayan god associated with both war and creation. However — shades of Indiana Jones — erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible. Archaeologist Guillermo Bernal of Mexico's National Autonomous University ... notes there are other inscriptions at Mayan sites for dates far beyond 2012 — including one that roughly translates into the year 4772.

Note: The highest counter in the Mayan calendar is the alautun, which is an interval of 63 million years. Those who state the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 have not researched the Mayan system carefully. 2012 may be the equivalent of the year 10,000 in the Mayan calendar, which is significant, yet it may end up being but another Y2K.

Florida Candidate For Mayor Wants 1,000-Strong Youth Spy Force

A frontrunner to become Mayor of Orange County Florida proposes to combat crime in the area by creating a 1,000 person strong spy force who would cruise around neighborhoods on bikes reporting suspicious behavior to uniformed supervisors, a creepy program with dark undertones of the Hitler Youth program of 1930’s Nazi Germany.


Government Propaganda To Infest Network TV Shows

An insidious brainwashing program set to be launched next week will “organically” weave the government’s political propaganda into prime time network television shows, with positive talking points about Obama’s environmental, bailout, health care and “servitude” agenda being seamlessly integrated into the content of dramas, reality shows and comedies.


Telephone Company Is Arm of Government, Feds Admit in Spy Suit

U.S. District Court Judge Jeffery White disagreed and ruled on September 24 that the feds had to release the names of the telecom employees that contacted the Justice Department and the White House to lobby for a get-out-of-court-free card.

“Here, the telecommunications companies communicated with the government to ensure that Congress would pass legislation to grant them immunity from legal liability for their participation in the surveillance,” White wrote. “Those documents are not protected from disclosure because the companies communicated with the government agencies “with their own … interests in mind,” rather than the agency’s interests.

Because They Failed to Take Away Our Guns, They're Coming After Our Ammo

It's called the Ammunition Accountability Act (AAA). You've got to love the name. It sounds so noble. But remember the great gun writer, Mel Tappan's, universal rule of law: "The nobler the language, the more nefarious the purpose of any legal instrument."

It's been proposed in 18 states and, with some minor difference among them, here's what it will do once enacted:

* Each box of ammo you buy will have a unique number.
* Each round in the box will have a laser-etched number on the base of the bullet and on the inside of the cartridge case that corresponds to the number on the box.
* Each time you buy ammo you will have to show ID with your name, date of birth, driver's license, etc., to be recorded so the box will be tied to you.

Afghanistan:


'Clear evidence of fraud' found in Afghan election: ECC

AFP - KABUL (AFP) - An Afghan election watchdog ordered ballots from more than 200 polling stations to be invalidated on Monday after an inquiry concluded there had been large-scale fraud in August's presidential poll.


Sacked envoy Peter Galbraith accuses UN of 'cover-up' on Afghan vote fraud

The top American in the UN mission in Afghanistan was fired yesterday after refusing to take part in what he called "a cover-up" of fraud in the Afghan election.

"I think it's astonishing that the United Nations would dismiss an official because he was concerned about fraud in a UN-funded and UN-supported election," Mr Galbraith told The Times yesterday from his farmhouse in Vermont.

Webmaster's Commentary:

What Mr. Galbraith apparently doesn't understand is that the "re-appointment" of Karzai to do the US's and NATO's bidding in Afghanistan couldn't be jeopardized by something so trivial as blatant and massive election fraud.


Mass abstention and vote rigging in Afghanistan election

Yesterday’s presidential election in Afghanistan featured massive abstention and blatant ballot rigging, underscoring the corrupt character of the entire exercise. Conducted under the guns of 100,000 foreign troops, the vote had nothing to do with democracy and was instead designed to provide a veneer of legitimacy for the US-led NATO forces’ increasingly bloody counter-insurgency campaign against those resisting the occupation.


Hamid Karzai teams claims presidential victory

THE head of Afghan President Hamid Karzai's re-election campaign said the incumbent was decisively leading the count and there would be no need for a second-round run-off.


UN chief fires deputy head of Afghan mission

UN chief Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday sacked the deputy UN special envoy to Afghanistan, who has been embroiled in a dispute with his boss over the country's fraud-tainted election.

"The secretary general has decided to recall Mr Peter Galbraith from Afghanistan and to end his appointment as the deputy special representative for UNAMA," a UN statement said.


Dark Omens for the US in Afghanistan

Now officially in its ninth year since the invasion of Afghanistan, the U.S. should have little reason to recount, in Chalmers Johnson’s words, the Sorrows of Empire. By now everyone on the planet knows by heart the tragic tale. The U.S. invaded Afghanistan without a clear understanding of its goals and after eight years remains as torn as ever over defining them. It was hoped that the incoming Obama administration and its new AfPak strategy would finally end the drift toward quagmire, but that hope is fading fast. Last week, AfPak architect Bruce Riedel revealed in the Financial Times that “Pretty much six months has since gone by without a rigorous implementation of what was agreed to and that has only made a bad situation worse.”

Army officers gathered at a convention in Washington this week said senior White House officials should not have rebuked Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, for saying publicly that a scaled-back war effort would not succeed.

Webmaster's Commentary:

McChrystal may well have been pulling a "General Patton" on this, but there is every reason to believe he was simply trying to prove his case publicly for more troops.

Unless the mission is completely redefined there is no path for "victory" here, with the US and NATO military just continuing to do what hasn't worked, with the current troop strength.

But there is a growing anger in the military about how the war in Afghanistan is being conducted, and the hard reality that the Taliban is now resurgent, in spite of the best efforts of US and NATO military. The comparisons to Viet Nam are inescapable, eight years on.

Only if a complete destabilization of Afghanistan, coupled with a massive rise in the drug trade, was precisely what the Pentagon and the White House wanted here, can we say "mission accomplished" in Afghanistan.

The Taliban had all but eradicated the opium growers before the US invasion. So why is cheap Afghani heroin flooding into the United States?
