Something you may not know

The whole Taliban insurgency just is not a bunch of Islamic hardliners bent on Sharia law world wide. There is also another group that has a huge stake in an unstable Afghanistan and that is the drug dealers. Afghanistan is the worlds largest supplier of heroin and opium beating out Asia's Golden Triangle are. I was reminded of this today reading the ISAF's website like I do on a daily basis and came across this article. The drug dealers are just as deadly as the regular insurgents and often times they cooperate as the same routes that can take the drugs out of the country are used to bring weapons and fighters in.
