By the Numbers

Harper's Index, via King of Zembla [via Anne Zook], points out a tactical irony:
Total U.S. spending on poppy eradication and other antidrug efforts in Afghanistan last year: $780,000,0000
Amount it would have cost to purchase the country's entire 2004 poppy crop: $600,000,000
Also, they've raised the maximum age for military recruits: I'm eligible again. Yippee?
