Afghanistan Heroin

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on June 6, 2011







As three young men learned recently, heroin is a deadly substance. The drug is produced from opium, which is made from the juices of the poppy flower. Most of the world’s poppy is grown in Afghanistan. Since 2001, Operation Enduring Freedom has brought the US Army ( assisted by NATO forces) into battle in Afghanistan. How does military action affect the opium trade?

According to Truthistreason, the result is a profit center for “friends” of the United States. Their story is US & Afghan Forces Are the World’s Largest Drug Cartel. According to Phantom Report, relatives of Afghan President Hamid Karzai are the drug lords running the operation.

Some say the country with the worst heroin problem is Russia. In the story “Russia slams NATO for losing Afghan opium war”, the “Federal Drug Control Services” estimates heroin usage at 711 tons in Europe, 549 tons in Russia, and 212 tons in North America. An estimated 30k Russians die of overdoses every year.

The Russian government is upset with the reaction of the NATO forces to opium production. Supplies for the NATO forces are going into Afghanistan through Russian Airspace, with the consent of the government. Russia would like for the NATO forces to eradicate the poppy production, in a manner similar to the eradication of coca fields in South America.

RT.com has an interview with the “head” of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov .

RT: It is also ironic that when the Taliban controlled Afghanistan, the drug trade, drug trafficking and even poppy cultivation were limited, but when the United States and NATO forces invaded Afghanistan, both production and trafficking skyrocketed. How do you explain this? And how can we even believe NATO when it says it is fighting the drug trade?

VI: You’re right. I had a meeting with my Pakistani colleagues here in Islamabad, and they, too, were amazed at this phenomenon. There is only one way to explain this. When the Taliban sought official recognition for its Kabul regime, they took unprecedented measures to eradicate opium poppy crops. They consistently took serious steps in 1998, 1999 and 2000, when they introduced capital punishment for poppy cultivation. As a result, they succeeded in eradicating drug crops on 90 per cent of Afghanistan’s territory, i.e., in all the provinces they controlled. The only place they couldn’t do it was northern Afghanistan, which was controlled by the so-called Northern Alliance.
But then Operation Enduring Freedom started, and the situation changed drastically. Only a competent government that has the support of the people can really control the country and take serious steps to destroy drug production.

This is no surprise to observers in the USA. For years, the Government has played both ends of the drug game. They maintain a legal prohibition, which keeps prices high, and gives the Government a tool to control the population. On the other hand, the Government *allegedly* is involved in importing and selling drugs. In the eighties, a “terrorist” operation in Central America was *allegedly* financed by by selling cocaine in the USA. ( This was the same operation which saw Israel as the middleman of arms sales to Iran.)

The profits of the drug trade were a powerful incentive to get into, and stay in, Afghanistan. This may be the motivation for allowing the 911 attacks to happen. It might also explain why *former* cocaine user Barack Obama is so eager to see the war in Afghanistan continue.

    WARMONGER BARONS CONTROL THE DRUG PRODUCTION IN AFGHANISTAN

    ” The United States wants to stay in Afghanistan in order to keep its profitable heroin business in the country, a political analyst says.
    “The only reason the United States would stay there frankly is to keep its multi-hundred-billion-dollar heroin business going. The business of Afghanistan has always been heroin. There’s no other reason the US was involved,” senior editor at Veterans Today Gordon Duff told Press TV on Thursday.
    “The people of Afghanistan have made it very clear they don’t want the United States there,” he added………………………………………..
    “When the United States went into Afghanistan in 2001, Afghanistan had ended almost every aspect of narcotics production,” Duff said. “As of last week, Afghanistan was producing 98 percent of the world’s… heroin.”
    The United Nations reported last month that Afghanistan produced record levels of opium in 2013.
    Cultivation of opium poppies, which are processed into heroin, rose 36 percent, amounting to 209,000 hectares.
    Afghanistan remains the world’s largest opium producer – last year accounting for 75 percent of the world’s heroin supply.

    ” Russia will bring its existential fight against the opium war targeting its youth — whose addiction rates have expanded in parallel to the massive increase in opium planting and heroin trafficking during the 13-year NATO presence in Afghanistan — to the UN Security Council, a move supported by China. U.S.-Russia joint collaboration on anti-narcotics is one of the only working- group relationships that has survived the Obama Administration and British geopolitical intrigues. It should be a new addition to the collaborative efforts on Syria and Iran, and, could become a decisive flank against the drug-money-saturated banking system, a favorite theme of Ivanov. It is only our enemies, and the stupidity of Washington’s Beltway idiots, that prevent the U.S. joining this effort. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28902

    ” Costa’s blunt statements come in face of another strategic development which is not headline news yet. Russia, with the backing of China, wants to push a UN Security Council-sanctioned crackdown on narcotrafficking onto the international agenda. The utter failure of NATO to deal with the 40x boom in heroin production in Afghanistan in the midst of its massive military presence there since 2001 and its upcoming withdrawal, has led to a simmering revolt, which is demanding action against the heroin economy. Viktor Ivanov, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Agency, recently announced that Russia was putting this on the agenda of the June 2014 G-8 meeting in Sochi.
    Within the United States, a boom of heroin addiction, including in supposedly-affluent middle class neighborhoods, plus debate on the NATO Afghan debacle, and its heroin boom legacy, has opened the door for increased U.S.-Russian collaboration against the global reach of Afghan-produced heroin. As with Syria and Iran, this U.S.-Russia collaboration must now take on the criminal banking system protecting the accumulated trillions of dollars from decades of narotics trafficking, be it cocaine or heroin.
    Russian financial intelligence expert Konstantin Sorokin emphasized in his Sept. 6 Executive Intelligence Review interview that U.S. Russia collaboration is key to defeating the drug cartels and their bankers, and thus the legalization drive. http://www.larouchepub.com/other/interviews/2013/4035sorokin_v_laundering.htmlhttp://larouchepac.com/node/29007

    WHO HAS CONCRETE INTERESTS IN THE CULTIVATION OF OPIUM POPPIES IN AFGHANISTAN ?

    Prince Charles Inspects His Mother’s Poppy Fields in Helmand
    April 15, 2010 • 9:00AM

    On March 25-26, Prince Charles visited British troops in Afghanistan, becoming the most senior royal to visit British troops there. He received a briefing from Gen. Stanley McChrystal, U.S. commander [editor confused whether it is “British” or “U.S.” commander] of all foreign troops in the country. The Guardian reported that “during a two-day visit amid tight security, he was flown by Chinook helicopter to Lashkar Gar, capital of Helmand province, where he met local leaders, the Governor Gulab Mangal, and British soldiers at a patrol base surrounded by opium poppy and wheat fields (emphasis added).”
    It was not reported where Prince Charles met McChrystal, for example, in a poppy field, a heroin laboratory, or on a carpet, where the Prince was sitting cross-legged socializing with the local governor. Associated Press reported that “the 61-year-old heir to the British throne said troops can keep themselves busy in the field, but for the relatives left behind, it’s ‘ghastly.'” However, the Prince did not identify what the troops were keeping themselves busy with.
    The AP shamelessly, but ironically, reports: “Britain has lost 276 troops since the war began in 2001. British soldiers have mainly been tasked with battling the Taliban in Helmand, the center of Afghanistan’s illegal narcotics trade that has financed the militant group.”
    AP added that “Prince Charles crisscrossed Helmand by helicopter, flying over the canals, poppy fields, and mud compounds that make up much of the district. He met with local leaders in the provincial capital of Lashkar Gah, sitting crossed-legged on a cushion as he talked about the situation in Helmand.”
    It further revealed the setting where the British troops are keeping themselves busy: “At Patrol Base Pimon, nestled among the blooming pink poppy fields of Nad Ali, he met some of the 140 British troops holding the front line and was told by commanding officer Maj. Ian Lindsay-German: ‘It’s a lot more quiet out there now, but it hasn’t been cleared fully’ of insurgents.”
    However, clearing the fields of opium poppy is not on the agenda.
    With this visit, the British are probably making it clear that Helmand might become the capital of what would be left of Afghanistan, when the catastrophic Obama Administration policy comes to a crushing defeat, and Kabul is abandoned to its fate in a sectarian and ethnically divided Afghanistan. Therefore, Helmand Province is of more interest for the British to keep quiet and “economically thriving” with the help of such American dupes as President Obama and General McChrystal. Helmand, whose Governor Mangal is being groomed by the British royals as a great tribal leader (as the British royals are themselves, oligarchical tribe leaders), is being portrayed as the stable and well-governed region of Afghanistan, unlike the “corrupt” President Karzai’s Kabul. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/14178

Despite being groomed for greatness from a young age, as a teenager he skipped university and instead headed for Los Angeles with dreams of being a film producer. In LA he started taking drugs, and ended up on heroin. Meanwhile, he failed to make it into Hollywood’s charmed circle and bombed as a film-maker. ”
