A bit like when the previous lot said they would have no dialogue with terrorists, whilst passing the hobnobs to Adams, McGuinness and his cronies.pull2eject said:Unfortunately our government couldnt be seen to trade in drugs with "terrorists" as they would like to remain law abiding citizens of course.
To be honest, I think it could very severely weaken the Taliban. No illiegal drugs trade to make a killing on so they can pay the disgruntled framers trying to make a living whilst watching a Ben and Jerry act between a dodgy regime saying one thing to the white man whilst making sure they get their cut when white man's not looking to shot at us.....pull2eject said:Ive always said this, its the closest thing to curing the problem provided the chogis were happy with the price Unfortunately our government couldnt be seen to trade in drugs with "terrorists" as they would like to remain law abiding citizens of course.
Will it make the taliban go away? doubt it, and in less than2 years lads on the ground in helmand could be being administered morphene for severe injuries caused by the very people that sold it at a bargain price to blightey.
Dunno just a viewpoint.
Hemp yes, the poppy no.Plastic Yank said:I assume that since has already been discussed, then you are aware of the poppy being grown in certain areas of the south of england for medical purposes, at the expense of grain crops. Ignoring the farce that is the bio-fuel crop industry, this must be the stupidest use of government funding (yes, grants are available).
surely we can just buy direct!?!?!? but of course that would make us look like we support the drug trade or something stupid like that ....
or even better, a stick talibanocide.msr said:
