While some irresponsible idiots, such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, are calling for the U.S. to send troops back to Afghanistan, there are developments underway that are kept out of the western media. What, for example, are the Chinese and Afghanistan’s neighbors saying and doing? China has a vested interest in seeing that Afghanistan does not become a safe haven for terrorists, nor drug traffickers. China’s Foreign Minister reiterated that, while China welcomes the pledges coming from the Taliban interim government, recognition depends on following through with a commitment to tolerance, and combating terrorism and drug trafficking. Did you know that the Taliban had nearly shut down opium production by 2000? Only after the 2001 U.S.-NATO overthrow of the Taliban government did drug production take off again — not surprisingly, especially in the province of the country under British control!
