I tried to make a poll with lots of neat options but some cunt made a stupid rule that you have to post a poll within 10 minutes of submitting a thread. So fuck it.

I think his first problem will be shaking off that "nazi" tag that he's got following him around right now.

1.) The Economy

2.) The War in Iraq

3.) Energy-Major issue. Yes, gas prices are low because the economy is bad but how long will they stay low? Plus, we need to find new sources of energy.

4.) Health Care-I doubt that their will be free health care for everyone. Impossible.

5.) Homeland Security-I doubt that their will be another terrorist attack but we will never know. I believe the terrorists will not take Obama and his administration seriously about this war. Will they test them by trying something new?

6.) Education-This is a serious issue. U.S.A. ranks number 29 in science and math. Inner city schools are the worst and they need special attention because the students who attend inner city schools are dropping out at an alarming rate. Something MUST be done about this.

7.) Immigration-This is a serious issue as well that needs to be solved.

I honestly don't have a clue why we are even Afghanistan...only logical conclusion is they are there to control the opium trade, because Osama Bin Laden is either dead already or living it up in Pakistan.

^^^it has to be to control the opium trade, the taliban had pretty much eliminated the opium trade there.
after the us invaded, the amount of opium and heroin flowing out of there skyrocketed.
i saw some troops guarding the opium fields on the military channel looking clueless.

this is from february 2001--

Last year, Afghanistan produced nearly 4,000 tons of opium, about 75 percent of the world's supply, U.N. officials said. Opium -- the milky substance drained from the poppy plant -- is converted into heroin and sold in Europe and North America. The 1999 output was a world record for opium production, the United Nations said -- more than all other countries combined, including the "Golden Triangle," where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet.
Mullah Mohammed Omar, the Taliban's supreme leader, banned poppy growing before the November planting season and augmented it with a religious edict making it contrary to the tenets of Islam.
The Taliban, which has imposed a strict brand of Islam in the 95 percent of Afghanistan it controls, has set fire to heroin laboratories and jailed farmers until they agreed to destroy their poppy crops.
The U.N. surveyors, who completed their search this week, crisscrossed Helmand, Kandahar, Urzgan and Nangarhar provinces and parts of two others -- areas responsible for 86 percent of the opium produced in Afghanistan last year, Frahi said in an interview Wednesday. They covered 80 percent of the land in those provinces that last year had been awash in poppies.
This year they found poppies growing on barely an acre here and there, Frahi said. The rest -- about 175,000 acres -- was clean. "We have to look at the situation with careful optimism," said Sandro Tucci of the U.N. Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention in Vienna, Austria.



this is from last year

Afghanistan's (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/world/countries/afghanistan.html?nav=el) emergence as the world's largest supplier of opium and heroin represents a serious setback to U.S. policy in the region. The opium trade has soared since the U.S.-led 2001 overthrow of the Taliban, which had eradicated almost all of the country's opium poppies. The proceeds from the illicit trade are helping finance a resurgent Taliban that is battling U.S. and allied troops.
The Taliban earned $200 million to $400 million last year through a 10 percent tax on poppy growers and drug traffickers in areas under its control, Antonio Maria Costa, executive director of the U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime, said in an interview. He estimates that Afghan poppy farmers and drug traffickers last year earned about $4 billion, half of the country's national income.


Afghanistan's high-yielding variety of opium poppies has helped double global opium production since 2005. With production far outpacing world demand, U.N. anti-drug officials and government intelligence agencies worry about massive stockpiling of the drug. "There will be two or three thousand tons of extra supply this year," Costa said.



i've said it before and i'll say it again
iraq-afghanistan-iran is tic-tac-toe and pakistan is a bonus
what if bin laden was dead before any of this shit even started and all of his videos are from the 90s---a dead man is a perfect scapegoat

^^^you're right, but that's (opium trade) definitely a part of it...look at the data, it can't be a coincidence that production has increased since the US occupation started unless we're to believe the people planning the war couldn't have foreseen what would happen when the taliban regime was ousted...plus increasing the flow of heroin in the US insures there's more bodies in the prisons.

well, supposedly cia operatives and government officials including joe biden met with bin laden when he was hospitalized before 9/11...maybe they offed him then and had their perfect fall guy.

no different than the flooding of coke into the ghettos in the 80's. The faces and places change but the situation remains the same.
