Greece – it is where Europe’s civilization and the very idea of democracy began. But today the country is in crisis; a crisis that may well destroy the dream of a unified Europe. A dream born out of the nightmare of World War II, a dream to unite different nations under one currency, has become a tragedy. Ten years after joining the eurozone, the Greek economy has collapsed, living standards have plummeted, hundreds of thousands are out of work and thousands more have left the country to find a new future. Many Greeks blame the European Union, and Germany in particular, for the crisis they are in. Today, almost 70 years after its military defeat in World War II, Germany is the strongest economic power in Europe and its political leadership holds the future of Greece in its hands. Al Jazeera correspondent Barnaby Phillips travels to Greece to discover why these two countries, tied by history and culture, are now locked into a conflict. Why has the European vision, designed to heal the wounds of the past, instead brought them back to the surface? And who is to blame – the Greeks themselves, the EU or the old enemy, Germany?

2008 – Afghan Heroin: The Lost War is a 47-minute documentary by National Geographic about the drug trade in Afghanistan.  Since the start of the War on Terror, heroin production has increased exponentially, with Afghanistan now producing over 90% of the world’s supply.   The production of poppies keeps Afghan farmers in business and provides the Taliban, through control of smuggling operations, the money needed to continue their fight against the Western countries that invaded in 2001 – the very countries that have been ravaged by the effects of a flood of cheap Afghan heroin.

    So let me understand. The Taliban, extreme followers of islamic law, who broke the arms and legs of their own countrymen to stop poppy growing,are now the ones growing it to support their fight against us? Only a ignoramus would believe that the taliban and not the cia etc. are behind the heroin ‘explosion’. Unintended explosion of heroin..ha ha.I have a bridge to sell you.
