Demos Do You Think This Should Be Stopped or Will Obama Say Lets the Black Tar Flow?

Question by Ray: demos do you think this should be stopped or will obama say lets the black tar flow?
MOSCOW — Afghan opium kills more people every year than any other drug on the planet, claiming up to 100,000 lives annually, according to a United Nations report released Wednesday.

Although U.S. officials have pointed to the last two years of lower production in Afghanistan , the country still produces 90 percent of the world’s opium, which the report says now threatens to sow havoc in much of Central Asia .

“The catalog of casualties caused by Afghan narcotics is gruesome,” Antonio Maria Costa , the executive director of the U.N. office on drugs and crime, says in a note in the report’s summary. “We need to go back to the dramatic opium addiction in China a century ago to find comparable statistics.”

In addition to drug-related deaths, Afghan opium and heroin pay for weapons that anti-U.S. insurgents use to kill American troops.
