The US authorities probably have so much in warehouses that they couldn't take it all until some more product is moved. The CIA needs to get back to work.

Well at least American authorities are a little more rational when they value it. $181 million @ 1200 pounds turns out to be $33US a gram, still probably a little overpriced for bulk price, considering 1 gram apparently only sells for $80 over there at street level.

If it was in Australia, they'd call it 1.9AU billion dollars worth, or 1.4US billion dollars worth, since a gram sells here for $350AU (or $258US). Those custom Nazis don't mess around downunder, they'll do ya at street level prices every time!



Who the hell would pay $300 a gram? You guys are retarded....Just plan a trip to America, you can usually get hooked up for $40 or so....Or so I hear


Yeah, don't worry mate, I'm planning my trip to the states. Drive down highway 66 in a Mustang and visit Disneyland and all that nonsense.

But anyway... I suppose the result of having the highest minimum wage in the world, is morons paying a fortune in whatever it is there looking for.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.



I don't know, honestly...but i would guess to keep search engines from picking up that as a keyword while crawling.



As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

one day these cartels will have a real submarine that stays below the surface and will run battery power as t get close to the US Shore these semi submersibles have come and gone and they are being caught a Full submarine is what they will do next.
and the coastguard will have to track that. maybe something from ww2 .

Believe it or not, years of the cold war with Russia have left us with all kinds of neat technology to track submarines.

what happens when they figure out how to get to an inland lake using an aquifer and a submarine?

just giving a thought.

and it isn't far fetched.

ask yourself this: why does the navy have a base of operations in the middle of the Nevada desert? Perhaps there are ways to get from the ocean to deep inland lakes.

Or maybe the Navy needs to test equipment in a safe location that doesn't require water...?

Actually there's an extremely deep lake there. That's home to the Naval Undersea Warfare Center. It's where they tested the scale mockups of the Ohio and LA during their development, and where they still test torpedo upgrades and other things.

So they can test things without giving anyone the opportunity to sneak in and get a signature during testing when a prototype isn't as quiet.

U.S. Coast Guard was 200 miles south of Mexico, how's that work exaclty, anybody know?



That is a good question. I been on these drug interventions that go all the way to bottom of South America. These drug boats are actually going across to Africa then on to Europe and I asked them about the legal jurisdiction and it is something hazy in the international seaman's code....

In this case it was a Navy air patrol that detected it and sent the Coast Guard to intercept it. However the Coast Guard does do joint patrols and operate out of ports across Central and South America.
