survey is better spent. a fifteen per cent increase in production in opium. this year. the new links added the area under cultivation by a narrow for. an extent that there is always tension between the afghan tribal arts and power brokers. not a violent storm goes on a steady level. when you get the actual farming of opium in the production of oak getting it out of the farm gate our problems so i don't want. it's not really a major cause of violence of reach ok but you know you mentioned that fifty per cent increase in the production of opium. i'll leave it to spend billions of dollars on non fighting the same thing in and said this. how is it possible that so many resources have been directed at something and yet we're seeing a rise of it being produced. we're talking about expenditures over ten years in an extremely erratic poker when the special inspector
8:20 pm
general for afghan reconstruction tools the unaffected. video and data indicates is really very very little real impact. but you see over time it's not that these programs have much impact. but for example last year. people in the region and predicted a much higher increase in production lab production what happened was the rains were very good antony said there is the main limitation of opium output in and nothing to do with connor progress. what you get into the local winds push growth of opium power of the north. out of the east where there wasn't much stronger troop presence. and it is so. where you have more of our control. for example last year. you saw areas that had been previously worked for it least according to
8:21 pm
the estimates producing again and as you save more and more troops pull out of afghanistan. and what do they want is a very corrupt police force be the only real barrier. you're on certain to see a lot of those areas which were supposedly giving up truck production. a current production again the remaining erratic programs on a new ten year braddock programs use your words and as an inexpensive program. does that mean i mean should we keep funneling money into something that hasn't really seen results are then to the approach me to change. well it's too late to change it then you are going to have anybody there to make the program work. you do not have a police force which is capable of honestly really affecting the door you're going to be calling the aid workers in a money out of the air. because of a
8:22 pm
former colony. afghan farmers to the ratings which can be extremely ironic. opium is still one of the most attractive crops to virtually any for her. you watch a lot of our road system deteriorate over the last two years ago prince easy to move it's an area where farmers can get entrenched loans which they can. on normal commercial crops. so to be honest the idea that you're going to have on this meaningful eradication. he is simply not going to happen and efforts to find substitute crops and persuade farmers to move in areas like we already had some success in some areas. haven't worked in the longer the main crop producing berries. and since we're going to end the aid workers go. the police advisors largely outward and military advisors largely out of the end of this year. and afghans are going to have
8:23 pm
much less scary. you can pretty well predict what's going to happen to narcotics production. now at a town like as long as there's an incentive to create that crop that there is to keep out any real damage time but i wun ask you. we've seen all the bells and resources directed to stopping this program do you think that the change if it's going to happen in skits and a half to happen when in afghanistan itself. we're going to afghanistan in virtually every political security and economic worse. it is going to push the afghan back toward more appropriate option. as soon as i so forcefully that the end of this year. hmm very interesting what's happening over there and appreciate you stare weighing in on a bet with anthony corrie this man in the r in the paintwork chair in strategy at the center for strategic and international studies belliard as a few days away now from the opening
