Ahmad Wali Karzai
was the most powerful man in Southern Afghanistan. His "ruthless control" helped assure his half-brother (President Hamid Karzai) winning two presidential elections.

His ties to the opium trade, private militias and the CIA were well known, though denied. His enemy was the Taliban.

His death makes Kandahar even more dangerous than it already was. Upon hearing of his assassination, a US officail said, "We needed him." Fighting the Taliban just got tougher.

As for Shah Wali Karzai, another brother, named by Hamid to replace Ahmad- He can start digging his own grave.

The Taliban banned opium
after defeating the Soviets in Afghanistan. Its production was nearly stopped. Heroin abuse and related crimes significantly declined in the States.

Then the United States invaded Afghanistan. Bumper crop has followed bumper crop ever since. Heroin abuse and its related crimes [theft of air conditioner units, aluminum, copper, burglary, robbery, auto theft, etc] are epidemic once again. Ninety-three percent of the world supply of opium/heroin now comes from Afghanistan.

Some suggest off-the-books BlackOps and CIA operations are funded from detoured profits. Bankers make huge profits laundering the illicit treasure. The puppet [Karzai] regime is thick in it.

"deals with the devil"..Indeed.

thanks

This poetico offering is a follow-up to "Opera of the Puppets" and "mowing the grass"

The United States militarization of Afghanistan [opium], Iraq [oil], Libya [oil] and Bahrain [oil], has cost the lives of more than 6,500 American service personnel, along with scores of thousands of wounded and several trillion dollars of treasure [forty-one cents of each dollar of which we currently borrow from the Chinese].
