In Colombia I witnessed the terror caused by cartels fighting each other and the government. The once “leftist” subversive groups (FARC and ELN,) took over the distribution of the crops after the cartels were brought down. These guerrillas once used to guard the crops and labs for Escobar and many other mob leaders. Now in control, they’ve brought back a similar war which is still hidden by a lost cause which Chavez refers to as “revolution”. It’s greed and income that keeps these guys in the jungle even after being (and still being) hit hard like last year when some of the commanding leaders were brought down. With the U.S. help and a Colombian government determined to end the guerrilla, some (or most) Colombians could agree that there’s been a periodical great success in achieving this goal. The U.S. has not wasted the financial aid given to Colombia. The news used to report how the guerrillas would kill, kidnap, take over, extort, etc., but now the news frequently report how the winning side is now the government. I think that the U.S. strategy could be applied to Afghanistan since there’s similar situation. However, my only concern is whether the Afghan government, along with the international community, is willing to respond to the problem in the same way Uribe’s government has responded. The problems affecting the U.S. and the afghan people in Afghanistan must be solved with a unitary compromise between both countries, politically and militarily.

With permits issued by the Government to allow the poppy to be grown. With the profits put back into the Afghan Government coffers. The government will issue free seeds to grow hemp and provide environmentally friendly products such as soap, rope, shopping bags, clothes and wholesale hemp for other products. They can sell franchises to market their hemp products to the west and float the company on the stock exchange. That would get non government sponsored poppy production down to a level of around 25% and cannabis to around 50% meaning Afghanistan would only produce 75% of the worlds narcotics. Of course first the Talib has to be put down and the security situation need to improve. Just like Amsterdam there would be a small percentage of cultural cannabis tourism in a greenzone, the narco tourism has been occurring since the 60’s in small numbers. People have to take into account that hashish, cannabis and the opium have been part of Afghan culture for many centuries as such the transformation will take inter-generational change. We will figure something out, without creating factional war between the warlords or weakening that Afghan Governments standing in the community. Daniel and the FARC are still operational and in the safe haven of Venezuela and the violence has spread to Mexico.

I have experienced the drug culture and have known many mexican mafia, bikers, black gangs, and so on… There is no stopping the use of drugs, the only thing that can be done is control drugs in regards to how and when they get used.. I have suggested to my Senator to provide hard drugs like cocaine and heroine and meth free of charge in private prisons or drug prisons… and when the user can go one year without using with it in their face everyday, then they can be trusted in society. The cops would go hog wild arresting hard drug users to get them into the prisons till there is none left to influence new users.. Marijuana needs to be legalized though.. There isn’t even close to enough prison space for all of that, and it is harmless anyways. Just hard drug users… The Government could purchase or contract the drugs from the producers in columbia, afganistan, etc and cut out the criminals from the profits.. eliminating street gangs and drug cartels..

Or maybe i’m just dumb if so then it’s still not working we are locking people up left and right for this drug war people are die left and right in mexico because of this. Now if we just sent in death squads like we use to do in the 70’s we might solve the problem but rule 1# keep it to your selfs don’t let the press know about it.
