I think it's important for everyone to see what bin Laden, the Taliban and 
the Islamic Jihad really are: hypocritical drug pushers!

Under the guise of a "holy war," they're really fighting for control of 
Afghanistan so they can sell more heroin and other drugs. It's a fact that 
every year they grow more and more poppy fields and manufacture more 
illegal drugs. They have some Muslims fooled that it's all about religion. 
It's also a fact, that poppy plants are their only cash crop. They could 
grow wheat, but they make more money pushing heroin.

I think we should "plant" a bomb in every poppy field so there is not even 
one plant left. This way they have no more heroin to sell, and America 
could save millions of tax dollars on the "war on drugs." Also, if you take 
away their heroin trade, Afghanistan might have a chance to rebuild and 
bring true peace and freedom to a country that has never known what it's like.
