Fun times!

A powerful amphetamine tablet based on the original synthetic drug known as "fenethylline," Captagon quickly produces a euphoric intensity in users, allowing Syria's fighters to stay up for days, killing with a numb, reckless abandon.

"You can't sleep or even close your eyes, forget about it," said a Lebanese user, one of three who appeared on camera without their names for a BBC Arabic documentary that aired in September. "And whatever you take to stop it, nothing can stop it."

"I felt like I own the world high," another user said. "Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling."

"There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon," a third man added.

Apparently the illicit drug is also contributing to militant's funds. Fantastic.

The side effects sound terrible, brain damage and psychosis.

Not sure if the two are related, but didn't they find used syringes in the hotel room of the Paris attackers?

But..the body is a temple right?

A true Islamic follower would never taint the temple.

What would be the punishment if a follower of Islam was found guilty?

Got to be on something surely to do half the crap these guys do.

Sure, training to kill in a War situation is one thing. Hacking someones head off with a small blade, shooting babies and massacring whole groups of people is another.

I saw this one video of "them" screaming down a highway "somewhere" and just letting rip into passing cars. Once they came into the side streets of a town, they were just shooting random people on the pavements. Having a good laugh about it.

They have to be right off their tits to do stuff like that.

Just terrible.

Not to mention having to deal with a 50 caliber head wound...

But why not some poppy seed heroin to just kill the pain. It's indeginous right? Oh that's right the U.S. Military and intelligence services already monopolized on ME poppy. Sucks to be them.

destined for Saudi fighters

Five Saudis, reportedly including a prince, were detained at Beirut's airport after two tonnes of pills branded as Captagon were found in cases due to be loaded onto a private jet.

It was the largest drug smuggling operation yet uncovered at the airport.

Captagon pills, which typically contain amphetamine and caffeine, are consumed widely in the Middle East.

The drug has helped fuel the conflict in Syria, generating millions of dollars in revenue for producers inside the country as well as being used by combatants to help them keep fighting.

Ahhh yes! I remember that story. It didn't click, but you are spot on!

I remember thinking "oh dear, heads are gonna role" but didn't even link it to IS.

Interesting at the END of the article it takes note it it a big problem in Saudia Arabia, a 7 ton a year problem.

If you listen to Gen. Wesley Clark he says our allies created and funded ISIS. Hmmmm

About two weeks ago some criminal Wahabi, Prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz got caught in possession of about 2 tons of captagon in his private jet in Lebanon.

Interesting as I think we all agree they are profoundly mentally ill.

Doctors report that the drug has dangerous side effects, including psychosis and brain damage, according to the BBC.

Hm. I wonder how long it takes for the hyperactivity and sleeplessness to cause one to have a massive heart attack?

There is this bit about a witness saying that he saw them in the car and "they looked like zombies, as if they were drugged".

Not long. Especially at the levels these asswipes are using it. At best, there will be permanent damage.

The human body can not sustain that for very long.

I used to use legal over the counter stimulants at huge levels when I was younger, and eventually the body says "enough"...and, eventually, your body, mine did anyway, develops resistance to it, and the quantities have to be enormous to have the desired effect.

Now this stuff? It's very powerful obviously, so the effects of long term use are going to be horrific, if they use it in the doses I surmise they will/do. They're young, stupid, invincible...couple that with drugs like this?

Coming down off of it.

It's got to be almost crippling.

So, to identify ISIS murderers, we just have to make everyone wait in long enough lines at the airports.

They'll go spare!
