It is hard at least for Afghans to place their faith in the honesty of the United States in the fight against terrorism and narcotics. Given the US actions, Afghan people who have been paying an unbearable price for the imposed bloody war for the last decade and a half will not rest assured that the superpower has really come to Afghanistan to fight these two phenomena. If that was the objective, they should have been alleviated; however, the reality is otherwise, and Afghan people witness things have completely reversed in both areas, especially in counter narcotics on which the United States has spent nine billion dollars, but the opium cultivation and production is still on an upward trajectory, with more communities resorting to grow the crop.
