NATION BUILDING 101

Who says the United States is not nation building. The United Nations says that Afghanistan has undertaken value added services on its greatest export. Apparently the Afghans are now processing 90% of the opium they grow into finished product in country. I bet there was significant foreign direct investment to make this level of industrialization occur. This really is "teaching the Afghans to fish" rather than giving them a fish.

Afghanistan will truly be a nation when it starts assesing a tax on opium production.
