Okay

For a multitude of reasons, poppy's from Afghanistan and that area produce the highest concentration of opium of any plants in the world.
It is these opiates which are used to produce morphine, codeine, etc. Hospital analgesics, or very strong painkillers.

There are no drugs out there which have such analgesic potency as those in the opiate family, and that's why we use them, even though they have a high abuse possibility.

It's also used to produce diamorphine, or heroin.
But diamorphine is used in hospitals as well, believe it or not. It's used in very serious cases of acute pain.

So there. If the fields are being guarded by the military, they're at least officially for the production of analgesics to export, since it's one of the major economic incomes for Afghanistan, and losing it would probably seriously damage the country.

The military burns any poppy fields they come across because 1) it's drugs and 2) it's the sole financial resource of the Taliban.
You ignorant **** .
