The War on Terror Drugs

CBC reports that Canadian soldiers are going to go after drug dealers of Afghanistan opium. (story)

Defence Minister Peter MacKay told CBC News soldiers would indeed target drug traffickers and drug production facilities.

"We're not going specifically to eradicate poppy crops, but we would go after proven drug traffickers with operations linked to the terrorists," he said.

The opium trade is the only thing in Afghanistan thing that can make a regular person any money. From growing it to dealing it. There will always be someone who is willing to risk it for profit. So knocking off a few of these guys is not going to stop the drug trade.
