An ABC report is describing a “new approach” to the poppy production in Afghanistan.
“If WE SECURE them getting a good harvest, now they’re going to get paid for their hard work. Then we can deal with trafficking afterwords” – U.S. Soldier in new ABC report.
Securing a good harvest and making sure these poppy farmers get paid is why troops are in these fields? What exactly is going on there?
