In Flanders fields the poppies blow – John McCrae poem famous

Its interesting to think now that we are in Afghanistan most military deaths are inadvertently caused by poppies.

IED’s and arms are purchased with funds created from the selling of poppy opiate by-products.

If we stopped this drug for arms trade we would limit the danger our troops are exposed to.

Why is this not happening?

I think of what it must be like to fight in a foreign land and all the machinations that creates, all the innocents hurt, traumatic stress there and on return, the costs of it all the money the human hurt.

I hear the moan of bagpipes in the distance its almost 11AM.
