78. and the opium production is at an all time high in Afghanistan
up 64% since 2003. And the US military has a POLICY not to interfere with the opium because it will leave the growers without a livelihood. But since when did they care about that? Look at Iraq. They don't want to loose their cut.
The overall conceptual idea I'm getting from 9-11 is a switch to a military industrial economy. Marsh even got the defense company along with Kroll.
