We're makin' progress ...

Turning Iraq into Afghanistan, which is also a dismal failure:

The cultivation of opium poppies whose product is turned into heroin is spreading rapidly across Iraq as farmers find they can no longer make a living through growing traditional crops.

Afghan with experience in planting poppies have been helping farmers switch to producing opium in fertile parts of Diyala province, once famous for its oranges and pomegranates, north- east of Baghdad.


Spreadin' our freedom and democracy far and wide, about 3 feet deep.

Great thanks to Maru for the link.
