Afghanistan: So, Let them Grow Grapes!

-Posted by D. Worth (US) | for- M. Barbay (France)

The subject of poor farmers starving without poppy production, in lands so fertile and perfect for wine conditions. Why not turn this situation into a positive one?
Billions could go toward a productive farmer's Vineyard...

In Video (below) Sky correspondent, David Bowden, witnesses the destruction of a huge heroin factory in southern Afghanistan; and instead it sounds to me like a soggy, regretful, pity for farmers of whose crop sales continue down the line, as cash funds for terror, addictions, and tens of thousands of yearly deaths!

Again, the sane question becomes:
Why is there not another crop of choice? If indeed these poor farmers will starve in lands so fertile and perfect for wine conditions; why not turn this situation into a positive one?
One that will achieve abundance not reliant upon drugs operations, and opium cultivation... I mean, do it now, before more militants are on the drug payroll...
Perhaps farmers should stop whineing & start whining!
Here's the Video...

The engagement toward a better and more legitimate life, of which Afghan farmers have control... is a Win-Win.
