MSNBC / Reuters Peru coca crop going strong: "According to the figures, Peru had 84,016 acres of land devoted to coca crops in 2001, virtually no change on the 84,510 acres recorded for 2000, but nearly half of what it was four years earlier. But one senior U.S. official involved in drug eradication efforts in Peru which involve literally ripping coca plants up by the roots, not aerial spraying said a reduction target of 17,297 acres for this year was feasible." It's incredible how U.S. government spokespersons can come out each year and say practically the same thing for 25 years.
