The Taliban's reverse psychology

I probably should explain the sense in which I meant the preceding entry, because on the surface, it would appear that the Taliban were attacking the "anti-opium" program which Obama supports. Well, the fact is that the reason British agent Obama supports it is that it won't work, partly because of the Taliban-mafia's violence and intimidation. The effect of the Taliban's bombing such a prominent symbol of this program is to give the impression that it is a real threat to opium production, and that it should remain in place. If all the Taliban wanted to do was to intimidate farmers, they could do this in a lower-profile manner without drawing attention. So, they were in effect supporting Obama's program, which won't work, and undermining the realistic approach advocated by LaRouche.
