EYE-BALL Opinion on – What are we doing in Afghanistan?
What are we doing in Afghanistan?
15th July 2012.
|Monday night’s ABC ‘4 Corners’ program is about the Afghan opium trade and what drug traffickers are doing in full view of NATO and coalition forces.
That story is re-published below:
There is only one question – what are our armed forced doing in Afghanistan?
In the 10 years Australian troops have been deployed in Afghanistan, 33 soldiers have been killed, and 230 wounded. Afghanistan has been at war and as a major opium source for the world – no military occupation or assist has managed to stop the flow of this trade.
Clear your mind, ask yourself, in 10 years of military aid and assist, the opium trade in Afghanistan – their only export to the rest of the world and source of national income – is still a thriving business.
Which is the bigger story – the parents of children being killed and their children forces into slavery – American, British, and Australian forces protecting Afghan assets that have an end product that exports opium to the rest of the world.
It might not be as simple as that – but you can’t imagine that this has not been talked about at high levels and allowed to continue.
You want a story that compromises Australian troops in Afghanistan – this is it …
