Afghan Women Lead Protest against Government Corruption, WarEscalation
My sympathies. But it is the drug money, which comes from developed
economies which funds corruption and terrorism. If recreational drugs
were legal, but regulated like other recreational drugs- alcohol and
tobacco, then- in an open market, the money could be tracked and cut off
from both corruption and terrorists.
The rational thing would be to tax recreational drugs so that the money
could be used by the families of drug users for treatment, education,
and even counseling by family clergy. Course, without all the criminal
drug cases, a lot of lawyers would need to go to work for a living. And
well... we cant have that.
And, since it is their brothers at the bar who run all legislatures,
nothing will be done.
Part of the problem as well, is the Muslim dogma to keep women barefoot
and pregnant. The result is families so large the only way farmers can
earn enuf to feed them is by growing poppies. But you cant send a
Christian army to try to promote birth control.
