I know… I shouldn’t make political statements on a blog like this… but I can’t help it. I hate war. I hate the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Maybe I’m ignorant; its certainly possible, but war is simply a choice between killing a brother in Christ or killing someone who has yet to come to God. Can that ever be a good choice?
But, when war is combined with the insanity that is politics it gets real ugly. The Washington Post had an article on Saturday about the issue of Opium production in Afghanistan. Its not good news. But what I consider the bad news isn’t even mentioned in the article… we could have prevented this problem of opium production. See, other ag goods other than opium can grown in Afghanistan, but the EU and the US wouldn’t open their markets to any potential agriculture goods produced in Afghanistan. Why? Well, that question could be asked again and again… I just don’t know.
