More on Counter-Narcotics in Afghanistan

Global Guerrillas posted an article yesterday, which also concerns American counter-narcotics operations in Afghanistan. Seems many people are using Colombia's recent counter-narcotics efforts as a model for effective counter-narcotic/counter-terror operations.

One of the responses in Global Guerrillas wondered why no one had thought about having NATO simply buy out all of the opium. I merely direct them to David Kilcullen's "Accidental Guerilla".
