Fungus hits Afghan opium poppies

Fungus hits Afghan opium poppies [Oh dear. The CIA must be *devastated.*] 13 May 2010 A serious disease is affecting opium poppies in Afghanistan, Antonio Maria Costa, the head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has said. Mr Costa told the BBC that this year's opium production could be reduced by a quarter, compared with last year. He said the disease - a fungus - is thought to have infected about half of the country's poppy crop. Afghanistan produces 92% of the world's opium. Mr Costa said opium prices had gone up by around 50% in the region. [Oh, OK, lol. Maybe not so much.]

cause i dont get the incongruity

 

was it a yes men thing?

In July 2001, the Taliban had brought the poppy production down to *zero.* And then, Bush invaded... to get the opium and gas pipelines flowing again. --LRP

i am referring to something i saw here within the last 4-6 months about a u.n. report mentioning the successful crop exchange, i tried to look for it, but dont understand your search engine yet :)

 

thanks for responding directly.

 

i avoid news in general, it makes my job tougher, i just read headlines, i scan dredge/huffipo and always turn to you guys for the middle of the road.
