ABSTRACT
The article looks at the economic and political problems in Afghanistan, ranging from a booming drug trade to a resurgent Taliban to political corruption. The outlook for solving Afghanistan's drug problem was underscored by two reports tying the country's opium trade to corruption and to the Taliban. In fact, many observers increasingly view Afghanistan as another casualty of the Iraq war. A November 2006 proposal for a Marshall Plan to help Afghanistan get back on its feet underscored the country's plight.
