President Bu$h, How's Pakistan/Afghanistan?

The San Francisco Chronicle's Declan Walsh reports in "Pakistani Taliban gaining strength : Strong-arm tactics deal blow to U.S. war on Islamic militancy" on the mess in Pakistan. Afghanistan now produces 90% of the world's opium and their human rights record is still dreadful according to Amnesty International. Peace ... or War!
UPDATE - 4/5/06 - I just found this Christian Parenti piece in The Nation. Long but revealing.
