Notes

Abstract: It has become abundantly clear over the past several years that there are numerous impediments to success in the conflict in Afghanistan; the ongoing Taliban insurgency, rampant corruption and extreme poverty in agricultural regions of the nation being the most prescient. However, rather than addressing all these obstacles individually, this proposal will attack them at the root. It will address the common link that seems to fuel each of them and continues to create an environment in which the Taliban can flourish, and in which the Afghan government continues to flounder. The target of this proposal is to substantially decrease the production and smuggling of opium products in Afghanistan.
