Afghanistan, The World's First Official Democratic Narco-State

It seems that Afghanistan has taken advantage of their recently acquired democratic status by resorting to their pre-Taliban cash-cow, heroin production. According to an article from The Scotsman a United Nations report shows that the heroin business in Afghanistan is now at all-time record levels. The report, oddly enough, also points out the fact that only the Taliban had been able to crush the rampant cultivation. So let's see if The Peach gets this right. Those evil followers of Mullah Omar were able to end the heroin business with guys carrying bazookas on mules. Meanwhile, we go in with tanks and Appache helicopters and we're looking at a bumper-crop of opium. Is this how the administration avoids handing out all those pesky little farm subsidies?
