Our World in 2010

Closing the door on the past year, I thought I'd share the doom-laden photos of 2010 taken from all over the world.

In this photo taken on Friday, March 19, 2010, a farmer works in a poppy field in Marjah, Afghanistan. When U.S., Afghan and NATO forces stormed Marjah in February, they were instructed to seize large opium stashes but leave farmers' poppy fields alone. Oh really?
