Afghan opium poppy yield hits all-time high
Farmers grew 209,000 hectares of opium poppy despite US spending $7.6bn on counter-narcotics efforts since 2001

• Afghan opium production explodes despite billions spent - US report

Opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan has hit an all-time high despite years of counter-narcotics efforts that have cost the US $7.6bn (£4.7bn), according to a US government watchdog.

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime reported that Afghan farmers grew an “unprecedented” 209,000 hectares (523,000 acres) of opium poppy in 2013, surpassing the previous high of 193,000 hectares in 2007, said John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction.

“In past years, surges in opium poppy cultivation have been met by a coordinated response from the US government and coalition partners, which has led to a temporary decline in levels of opium production,” Sopko said in a letter to the secretary of state, John Kerry, the defence secretary, Chuck Hagel, and other top US officials.

“The recent record-high level of poppy cultivation calls into question the long-term effectiveness and sustainability of those prior efforts,” he said on Tuesday.

Afghanistan produces more than 80% of the world’s illicit opium, and profits from the illegal trade help fund the Taliban insurgency. US government officials blame poppy production for fuelling corruption and instability, undermining good government and subverting the legal economy.

The US has spent $7.6bn on counter-narcotics efforts in Afghanistan since the start of the 2001 war, it said.

Sopko said the UN drug office estimated the value of poppy cultivation and opium products produced in Afghanistan in 2013 at about $3bn, up on the $2bn estimated in 2012.

“With deteriorating security in many parts of Afghanistan and low levels of eradication of poppy fields, further increases in cultivation are likely in 2014,” Sopko said.

He said affordable deep-well technology brought to Afghanistan over the past decade had enabled Afghans to turn 200,000 hectares of desert in the south-west of the country into arable land, much of it devoted to poppy production.

In a letter responding to the findings, the US embassy in Kabul said the rise in poppy cultivation and decline in eradication efforts by provincial authorities was “disappointing news”. It said American officials were helping Afghans develop the ability to lead and manage a long-term counter-narcotics effort.

The embassy said the fight against poppy cultivation had had an impact on growers, resulting in a change in where the crop is planted.

“Essentially, poppy cultivation has shifted from areas where government presence is broadly supported and security has improved, toward more remote and isolated areas where governance is weak and security is inadequate,” it said.

Michael Lumpkin, the assistant secretary of defence for special
operations and low-intensity conflict, said in a letter in response that the Pentagon had supported counter-narcotics operations by other US government agencies but was not responsible for managing poppy eradication programmes.

“In our opinion, the failure to reduce poppy cultivation and increase eradication is due to the lack of Afghan government support for the effort,” he said.

those people have been doing this for jillions of years..thanx for giving them hi tech access to water...maybe port some of that to cali.

Good afternoon all.

Just found out that the Pico software I bought at huge expense won't run on any of my computers.

Most appropriate that in the background I have Cream's 'world of pain' playing.

Man, do I hate computers.

Iraqi forces clash with ISIS fighters west of Baghdad

BAGHDAD: Iraqi army tanks and armored vehicles Wednesday fought off an advance by ISIS militants on the town of Amiriya Fallujah, west of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, army sources said, part of a multinational effort to check the group's progress.

The sources added that around 400 fighters amassed in the nearby towns of Fallujah and Karma the day before, piling pressure on the capital's western flank.

Government forces fought back ISIS outside Amiriya Fallujah - which faced a siege by the militants for much of this month and is the last government-controlled town before the key provincial city of Fallujah.

Soldiers destroyed five of the fighters' vehicles, a security source said.

There were no immediate reports on the number of casualties from the fighting there, but the militant advance appears to have been halted.

Another battle between the two sides raged in the area around Hit town, also in western Anbar province, but the outcome remained unclear.

Hit is a walled market town located some 130 km west of the Iraqi capital Baghdad seized by ISIS militants at the beginning of October.

Anbar's largest airbase Ain al-Asad, the Haditha Dam - a critical piece of infrastructure - and surrounding towns are encircled by ISIS to the west from the Syrian border and to the east from militant-controlled sections of Ramadi.

The province fell into the militants' hands after years of tension between the Shiite Muslim-led government and the Sunni minority population, which seeks greater autonomy.

Retaking the lost towns and encouraging Anbar's Sunni tribes to take up the fight against ISIS will be vital to reviving the shattered Iraqi state's control over its territory. The tribespeople did not take part in the fighting near Amiriya Fallujah.

The United States and other Western countries have repeatedly bombed the Sunni jihadist group's positions in Iraq - including in the Fallujah area on Wednesday - and Gulf monarchies have also taken part in airstrikes against it in Syria which began last month.

Declaring a caliphate, ISIS took advantage of sectarian warfare and weak state control to grab swathes of Syria and Iraq earlier this year.

ISIS fighters have also laid siege for a month to Kobani, hundreds of kilometers to the northwest on the Turkish-Syrian frontier, and only intense bombardments by U.S.-led coalition warplanes have halted their advance.

Science Daily

Kung fu stegosaur: Lethal fighters when necessary

Date:
October 21, 2014

Source:
Geological Society of America

Stegosaurs might be portrayed as lumbering plant eaters, but they were lethal fighters when necessary, according to paleontologists who have uncovered new evidence of a casualty of stegosaurian combat. The evidence is a fatal stab wound in the pubis bone of a predatory allosaur. The wound -- in the conical shape of a stegosaur tail spike -- would have required great dexterity to inflict and shows clear signs of having cut short the allosaur's life.

"A massive infection ate away a baseball-sized sector of the bone," reports Houston Museum of Natural Science paleontologist Robert Bakker and his colleagues, who present a poster on the discovery on Tuesday at the meeting of the Geological Society of America in Vancouver, B.C. "Probably this infection spread upwards into the soft tissue attached here, the thigh muscles and adjacent intestines and reproductive organs." The lack of any signs of healing strongly suggests the allosaur died from the infection.

Similar wounds are seen in rodeo cowboys or horses when they are gored by longhorns, Bakker said. And since large herbivores -- like longhorn cattle, rhinos and buffalo -- today defend themselves with horns, it's reasonable to assume spiky herbivorous dinos did the same. A big difference is that stegosaurs wielded their weapon on their tails rather than their heads. Skeletal evidence from fossil stegosaurs suggests their tails were more dextrous than most dinosaur tails.

"They have no locking joints, even in the tail," Bakker explained. "Most dinosaur tails get stiffer towards the end." But stegosaurs had massive muscles at the base of the tails, flexibility and fine muscle control all the way to the tail tip. "The joints of a stegosaur tail look like a monkey's tail. They were built for 3-dimensional combat."

In order to deliver the mortal wound to the allosaur, a stegosaur would have had to sweep its tail under the allosaur and twist the tail tip, because normally the spikes point outward and backward. That would have been well within the ability of a stegosaur, Bakker said.

The fighting style and skill of stegosaurs should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the dinosaur battle scene in the 1940 Disney animated film Fantasia, said Bakker. That segment of the movie shows a beefed up allosaur attacking a stegosaur. The stegosaur delivers a number of well aimed tail blows at the predator, but loses the fight. The Fantasia stegosaur tail dexterity appears to be accurate, he said. But he questions the stegosaur's loss in the end. "I think the stegosaur threw the fight," he said. On the other hand, he points out stegosaurs had among the smallest brains for its body size of any large animal, ever.

Gunman sought after soldier shot at war memorial near Canadian Parliament building

Published October 22, 2014

Gunshots rang out at Canada's Parliament building Wednesday, with one soldier guarding the nearby National War Memorial shot and a gunman on the loose just days after a terror attack in Quebec shook the nation, officials said.

Shots were reported inside the building, in Ottawa, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was whisked away to a safe location as Royal Canadian Mounted Police converged on the complex in a hunt for the shooter, who was described as having long, black hair and toting a rifle or shotgun. Bernard Trottier, a Toronto-area MP, tweeted that the gunman inside Centre Block "h

Harper “is safe and has left Parliament Hill,” Jason MacDonald, his director of communications, said via Twitter.

Hey Swamprat,

I'm sending up prayers for those in Ottawa. I really like the Canadians. We have more in my neighborhood sometimes than Americans. They come down to the beach here all the time.
