Hearts and minds.

Via To the People
We’ve had discussions here about the various problems and potential solutions in Afghanistan — about how eradication efforts just send the local population into the arms of the Taliban, and how the idea of chemical fumigation is anathema to the local population.
Well, FOX news’ own Colonel David Hunt has another idea:

These fields are miles and miles long and wide. We should bomb them, blow them up, set up an artillery and motor training range and blow the opium off the planet.

Brilliant. That’ll help get them on our side.
And then in the resulting bomb cratered farm lands, the natives will grow flowers to throw at our feet.
