    Sad isn't it. If we offered them free seed, we should provide it, but I bet there is more to it than that.

    What kind of seed? What crop will grow in the Afghani conditions (little rain, poor soil, wind & cold from high elevations)? What will approximate the cash value of the opium crop? Opium poppies are re-seeding annuals. Harvesting the sap does not interfere with collecting the seed.

    It will be difficult to stop.

    The life of a muslim woman in a muslim country isn't worth much according to several documentaries I have seen recently on public TV.
