Desert of Death


Iraqi war reporter extraordinaire Michael Yon has a great article on the opium fields, etc. in Afghanistan "Dasht-e-Margo......Desert of Death". As slways, fantastic stuff, makes you wanting more and more to read. While you're at it, catch his "Gates of Fire" article, at the time this was the most downloaded story on the internet for about a week when wrote this last August. Print 'em and read 'em.

... those lovely opium fields ...
well, i suppose that gives us our purpose in afgahnistan with all of our military might ...
just what would america do with out our opiate based pharm. drugs anyway? shades of vietnam, cambodia and the golden triangle drug war of the 60's and the 70's.
... thank you for sharing that beautiful picture and the links, and your 'conservative' perspective ...
peace & harmony,
