Afghanistan: This Is Insane, But Normal

This snippet really is a new concept to me! I like it! Does this mean that Bush raised food prices to save Afghanistan? Hmmm...

I can just see the nuts grabbing hold of this! HAHAHA!!

Afghanistan: This Is Insane, But Normal: "The sharp increase in world food prices has hit Afghanistan, with the price of wheat going up 400 percent so far this year. This has hurt the Taliban, because many farmers now find it more profitable (and less of a hassle) to grow wheat instead of poppies (used to create opium and heroin.) This has also led to more raids on food convoys (headed for parts of the country suffering famine)."
