ABSTRACT
This article discusses the situation existing in the northern provinces of Afghanistan. Prior to the United States invasion, the northern region was growing poppies for the Taliban and, even though they were paid well, the residents of the area were happy to have the U.S. troops free them from the puritanical rule of the fundamentalist group. The residents were promised a greatly improved infrastructure in exchange for not growing poppies. The northern area supported the new government and the ouster of the Taliban, but since none of the promises of improved infrastructure were kept, the area residents have begun to welcome the return of the Taliban.
