Extensive Heroin Use in US. The Real Afghanistan Surge is in Opium Production

Recently I worked in another Maine city and was astonished at the number of patients I encountered who were using heroin. I had never seen anything like it, during a lifetime practicing medicine. In New Hampshire, it was said, deaths from heroin now exceed deaths from car accidents. Nationwide, CDC noted, “Between 2002 and 2013, the rate of heroin-related overdose deaths nearly quadrupled, and more than 8,200 people died in 2013.” Massachusetts (population under 7 million) had 1,000 deaths related to (all) opioids in 2014, “the highest ever recorded.“

AfPak hat-trick is doable for Obama but unlikely

It makes good copy for the Indian press that the United States National Security Advisor Susan Rice made a rare trip overseas to Pakistan in the weekend with the intent to read the riot act to the country’s army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif regarding the unfinished business of reining in the Haqqani Network.

Falling and Failing in Heroin Country

The news that President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan had to go to Germany in July to have surgery on a twisted ankle was widely reported and it is difficult not to be amused that his trivial injury took place «while attending an event to mark World Olympics Day»...

Afghan War’s new direction after Omar

While he may actually have died two years ago, Mullah Omar did not actually ‘die’ until the news of his death was leaked to the world media.  That the news was deliberately leaked to the media is quite evident from the fact that his death was initially kept secret for more than two full years.

Return to Bush America: Revisiting American War Crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida and brother of George W. Bush, has been referring to his brother’s failed «war against evil doers» in recent comments suggesting that he continues to support the wars of folly and choice waged by the Bush-Cheney administration from 2001 to 2009...

Afghanistan on Brink of New Wave of Escalating Tension

Tajik President Emomalii Rahmon, during his Aug. 2 2015 visit to the town of Khorugh, the capital of the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, claimed that «extremists may try to infiltrate Tajikistan» from neighboring Afghanistan.  Dushanbe is taking steps to strengthen its national borders and to thoroughly train its military units and detachments, given the possible deterioration of the status quo in Afghanistan (IRA), where the confrontation between the Taliban and Kabul is being complicated by activity within the ranks of the Islamic State (IS) armed opposition group...

The Tragedy of Harper’s Canada

The current Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper looks like a tattered and ragged old stuffed animal these days. You know–the ones with one button-eye missing and the other hanging by a single thread. Although he has survived endless scandals and sleazy acts over the past decade, Harper’s musical tune is now screeching and discordant.

Chasing the Islamic State: Is the West set to miss the iceberg?

The rapid advance of the Islamic State of Iraq & Sham (ISIS), which now calls itself the Islamic State, took many across the world by surprise. Since then, there have been territorial gains and losses, leading many commentators to hasty conclusions and ultimately to policy paralysis...

German View on Syria, Merkel as Sphinx

Not too resourceful, she is reluctant to take risks: to put it in one word, US ambassador to Germany called her «Angela Teflon Merkel». This nickname misses the mark, because in reality Angela Merkel is a sphinx. Nobody can hold a candle to her when it comes to talking in riddles. She can say something that sounds mysterious and then you’re free to construe it anyway you like. You can never be sure you got the message right...
