Opium Wars

But this time, the Brits are agin' it.

Afghanistan is in bad shape and sending a lot of British soldiers in to start a new opium war isn't going to help.

Afghanistan was not a success, we didn't do anything like the whole job, and things have been getting worse since Bush and Cheney distracted the world by waving their weenies at Iraq.

Any stability Afghanistan seemed to possess was, even to my uneducated eyes, illusory. And the country is paying the price for that now, as it slides back into the same condition (only worse, what with us bombing some of the bits that were left intact by previous wars) it was in when we stormed in, flags a'waving.
