The Situation in Afghanistan is Improving.....

.....well, if you are into skag anyway. The BBC reports:

The UN says opium production in Afghanistan has soared to record levels, with an increase on last year of more than a third.

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime report says the amount of opium produced there has doubled in the last two years.

It says Helmand province is now the biggest single drug-producing area in the world, surpassing whole countries such as Colombia.

Afghanistan now accounts for more than 93% of the world's opiates.

Aaaahhh, don't it make ya proud? I mean, under the Taleban, heroin production had been reduced by 95%. Once again we have turned the country around and it is leading the world. Shame on those who are intent to undermine the new, prosperous Afghanistan. This is a real success story, brought to you by the coalition.
