Trojan Horse

Heroin trafficking in Afghanistan and Pakistan is the world's major source of opium and yields about 4 billion dollars annually for the Taliban and Al-Qaida, funding their operational costs. They're not selling all that heroin within their own borders and their cash crop hasn't been a victim of global recession. With our nation's seemingly insatiable desire for illegal substances, it's depressing to know we're helping to fund terrorism. The real war on drugs is more than a marketing slogan and the tide doesn't seem to be turning in our favor.
