Afghanistan: The Taliban Parasites Fight To The Death

“While most of Afghanistan is at peace, parts of the south and east are suffering from Taliban and drug gang violence. This year, the violence got worse, as NATO troops, using a more powerful intelligence system, went after key drug gang and Taliban targets. The drug gangs were hit hard, as many of their mobile labs, that refine the opium (scrapped from poppy plants) into heroin, were tracked down and destroyed. Often, Taliban bomb making facilities were found in the same locations, and hundreds of tons of bomb making materials have been destroyed. The use of roadside bombs has declined, as has the amount of heroin being smuggled out of the country. Heroin and opium prices are way up, partly because of a plant disease, but largely because the drug production infrastructure has been heavily damaged.”
