Or the new slogan win the mind and hearts of the people there?
Just be brave and fight them, others before you have fought them and did not care about diversios.
If one is worried about the grug trade, just get hold of all the US citizens on drugs and supply them with the mexican and colombian drugs openly or sent all the drug addicts to rehablitation centres in the US. the afghan drug dealers would be soon out of business, and the farmers would restart growing fruit orchards.

Does the taliban brew beer and sell it around the world? They would if you outlawed alcohol again. I would rather see heroin addicts get clean drugs easier than see the taliban gain more financial power.

The war on drugs in America has lasted over 40 years and cost over $1 trillion, and what do we have to show for it? Drugs are still available in every high school in America. Why would the next 40 years be any different?

No interest, barter dividend only.

As long as we don’t recognise the fact that that their are the following ruling forces within and across borders, we will always fall back into the same intellectual trap as above:

1. Elected governments and kingdoms;
2. Banks and Insurers;
3. Financial markets;
4. Traders;
5. Illicit trades’ leaders;
6. Consumers’ supply and demand;
7. The ‘Invisible Hand’.

NATO is being bankrolled, while at the same time, being taken for a huge ride. This is the greatest of all Ponzi schemes. It almost resembles a self-inflicted Fatwa.

It is like this whole “West” thing. There is no more West there is Asia, excl. Russia and the Rest, just as it is with religious groupings.

And they’re right.
