re: US begins bombing Taliban opium plants in Afghanistan - crazy4lsu
The ban did happen, but it was an effort to increase prices to take advantage of the previous big harvests of 1998 and 1999. It was extremely unpopular though, as the farmers had no other readily available cash crop. Much of the opium that is produced in Central Asia is also used in Central Asia....

re: US begins bombing Taliban opium plants in Afghanistan - crazy4lsu
[quote]Funny thing is opium production went down like 90% when the Taliban took power. It immediately spiked after our invasion. [/quote] No it didn't. Mullah Omar had pressure put on him by the UN to ban poppy production, and he acquiesced for a period of time in 2000. I've covered this before...

re: Borussia Dortmund is struggling - crazy4lsu
[quote]Yeah he plays an attacking position.. how about he starts putting the ball in the dam net. Save the dribbling stats [/quote] He's a 19 year old. Save for a handful of players, lots of great players didn't put the final ball together at 19. At this age it is important that he's playing reg...

re: Borussia Dortmund is struggling - crazy4lsu
Very true but I'm pleased about Pulisic's performance. His dribbling ability will hopefully start leading to goals and assists. ...

[quote]You can't say a team is on a downward spiral, watch them have a great season and then say you were right 18 months later after a slow start. It's like me saying West Ham is going to get relegated and then acting like I'm a genius if it happens well after I thought it would happen. [/quote]...

re: Borussia Dortmund is struggling - crazy4lsu
[quote]Stupid for a club like Dortmund to rely of him so heavily.. and they sure are paying for it [/quote] Haha. They have Kagawa, Gotze, Auba, Phillip, Schurrle, and Sahin. They aren't relying on one player. It's a structural issue due to a change in management, not something endemic to Dortm...

re: Borussia Dortmund is struggling - crazy4lsu
I don't know if this thread is supposed to be sarcastic, but Pulisic has played well. He leads the entire Bundesliga in successful dribbles per game (3.5), which is an amazing number in its own right (as it is behind only Messi and Neymar) but it is especially insane for a 19 year old. Outside of Me...

re: NAFTA collapse could push Mexico over the edge - crazy4lsu
[quote]Yep, thats why we need a Mexico that can at least provide jobs to their citizens and a way of supporting their owun people. [/quote] Yeah, suggesting that stabilizing Mexico would be the best way of dealing with immigration doesn't seem to resonate with this board for some reason. ...

re: NAFTA collapse could push Mexico over the edge - crazy4lsu
Three events off the top of my head are the Partition of India in 1947 which was the largest mass movement of people, the Migrant Crisis in 2015, and the expulsion of Ethnic Germans from Eastern Europe, which also was a massive movement of people that might be equal to the Partition. Those are among...

re: NAFTA collapse could push Mexico over the edge - crazy4lsu
The slow movement over time of groups of people is essentially different than the movement of people due to political violence. Mass movements of people are destabilizing events, much more so than consistent immigration of people from one country to the next. I don't think proposing that destabilizi...

[quote]If Mexico does not agree to a deal that is mutually beneficial then we should pull out of NAFTA, build the wall, and if shite gets too real redeploy the National Guard to the border, and let Mexico destroy itself. [/quote] I don't think letting Mexico destroy itself is a good policy, give...

re: NAFTA collapse could push Mexico over the edge - crazy4lsu
Shouldn't the goal be to stabilize a country so that there aren't refugees in the first place? That's compounding and complicating a problem rather than fixing it. This quote is quite revealing. [quote]"For Mexico, NAFTA is a national-security agreement – it is an agreement that anchors an e...
