Afghanistan’s coming winter

From Facebook:
Subroto Roy thinks the run-off election between Mr Karzai and Mr Abdullah, while important for democratic legitimacy, is impractical and should be postponed until the spring, with a “National Unity” caretaker government created instead. In the meanwhile, everyone from Mullah Umar’s Taliban to international military  forces should study the Senlis idea of making the country a major manufacturer of morphine using its poppy. Besides everyone preparing for the harsh Afghan winter… to see there are enough food-stocks for a start.

From Facebook:
Subroto Roy thinks the way to Afghan hearts is through their stomachs — it is imp. there be plentiful wheat during the harsh winter months, that no hint of food-shortages arise, that Kabul’s expats & elite & foreign militaries not distract themselves with wining, dining, frolicking while poor men are gath’ring winter fuel. The winter needs to be comfortable & economic plans to make morphine from poppy studied in all villages.
