There is all evidence that in the mountainous areas of Pakistan as well as in the village areas outside of Afghanistan's capitol city, Kabul, that the Taliban is once again gaining strength.

It is also likely that Osama Bin Laden freely operates in this area and that the both the Taliban and the Al Qeada organization finance themself by selling drugs through the organized crime owned nightclubs in Macau, and make arms deals with North Korean generals and international arms dealers here. Even insurgent forces in Iraq freely buy international arms from places such as Italy where new handguns are very common that are produced in Rome's handgun factories.
