156. don't forget the poppies
Afghanistan may not have a lot of oil, but it has most of the world's opium poppies. It's the number one producer, actually.

BFEE, way a long long time ago made lots of money in the opium trade, as did many of the 19th century robber barons. I happen to think that the connection to poppies continue to this day, if only through shell corporations. Or to keep the masses narcotized.

Why do you think Bush the father is called "Poppy," anyway?

(it's a pet theory of mine, but I can supply lots of fuel for the fire if anyone's interested)

Polishing my tinfoil hat gleefully tonight...
