#2 No we don't want to poison them. It's not the Iranian people who are our enemy - it is the mad mullahs and their terrorist henchmen.
Besides, drugs are a equal opportunity destroyer - a drug addict hurts not only themselves but everyone around them. I've seen it - it is not pretty.

#3 I meant the Whacko Imams and their sick followers.
Not that Islam is bad, but the KIllem all mentality has to go, they're NOT good neighbors.

#4 most of them are in the 15-64 age radius.
I can verify this.

#6 Any way we can poison them?
It would seem to be a distinct possibility that that is exactly what we are doing. It is suspicious that having conquered that country, and with all of our military might, we have done nothing whatsoever to suppress the poppy crop in Afghanistan. Last I heard Afghanistan was the world's leading producer of opium. Strange how that happened after we invaded.

#7 Coalition troops are not allowed to harm poppies or hash plants. To do so would be inviting punishment on yourself.
Curious policy, no?
My little brother struggled with the concept the entire time he was there.
It was obvious to him that he was not sent there to 'fight a war', just to perform some scripted actions dictated by politicians.

#8 Iran had 488 people executed, 33 percent of which were accused on drug trafficking.
Apparently you don't even have to be convicted in Iran to be executed. It should reduce recividism.
