Watching the news about the recent Moscow conference on the AIDS crisis doing its best to reduce the Russian population it would appear that the vast majority of infections are shared needles full of Afghan heroin.

Without going off on to a tangent about whether the Russians are over conservative about not allowing needle exchanges and methadone prescriptions, it does rather bring me to consider that the Russians might be a rather useful ally in putting the Afghan Drug Lords out of business if we made that the focus of the war and not regime change....
