On eradication in Afghanistan:

One question not asked in the NY Times story is how much it matters to the drug problem in the U.S. whether the Afghan government cracks down on poppy-growing or not. […] I can assure you that the answer to that unasked question is: “Damned little.” […]

So, from a U.S. perspective, the optimal amount of poppy eradication in Afghanistan is whatever amount is most likely to lead to good outcomes in Afghanistan.

And I don’t see many scenarios where the U.S. advocating poppy eradication in Afghanistan helps us.
