“The About to Bite Us War”

Michael Yon is sounding the alarm about the war in Afghanistan. The Taliban are coming alive in the countryside, and they are going to have money to burn. Actually they will first convert the money to weapons, and then they will start the burning. Michael writes:

The money from the massive opium harvest in 2006 will buy weapons and influence that will be used against us in the spring of 2007.
Is anyone listening? Actually there are other journalists saying much the same thing. It’s just not at the top of the MSM must play list. Go to Michael’s blog “Hiatus Corpus” for informative and interesting links.

(The title of this blog is borrowed from Michael’s piece.)
