Colombian authorities say towing drugs in these so-called “narco torpedos” is a new trafficking technique favored by the country's drug cartels.




The drugs are loaded onto a torpedo shaped container, which is then tethered to the hull of a boat using a cable. The vessel sets off with other boats. One boat acts as a decoy to divert authorities attention while other boats, including the one moving contraband, can get away. If the drug carrying boat is intercepted it releases the torpedo. The torpedo then releases a buoy[sp?] which transmits a GPS signal allowing it to be recovered by another vessel.


Americans will have their llello, one way or another. The war on drugs knows no end, unfortunately.

That torpedo could be used from way off shore to send the contents in close to shore where it can be picked up and unloaded. The torpedo can then be relaunched back out to sea twenty miles where it can be recovered.. To think a decoy is needed is not true. Even a small one man sub could be launched to haul it past the coast guard to someone who appears to be fishing way inside where the patrols are. A tiny sub could easily be cloaked from detection..

And it's very profitable for all who are involved.

These stories are to be expected in a war on drugs. As soon as we think we seen one way to smuggle, we learn of another. It's a cat & mouse game of which will never end.

The reason I could care less about these tactics is the fact that it's ignored that our own government allows the free flow of Afghan heroin to hit the streets and people of the U.S.

Stat drivers will indicate that over half of the heroin in the U.S. is sourced from Central & South America. Well let's do the math... Afghanistan produces upwards of 90% of the world's heroin, while the U.S. consumes 60% of the world's heroin. That means its mathematically impossible for Afghan heroin to not end up in the streets/pharmacies of the U.S.

I'd like to see the channels the CIA and government uses to bring the heroin into the U.S. exposed for once... instead of focusing on the black market. Of course we know that there's no checks & balances when our government/military officials travel back and forth between Afghanistan, but it's about time we put a full monitoring system on the travel between the 2 countries.

Columbia, Central America, and South America are just a bunch of juvenile criminals in the grand scheme of things. Their crimes will never achieve the level of deceit brought on by our own government.

Tax dollars handle internal affairs, while Afghan heroin funds military and all black OPS... it's time to # that down Americans and take our streets back!

Doubtful, unless you hide it in a migrating whale. Hey, theres an idea, feed a wale shrimp packed wth heroin balloons and let it migrate north, then kill it and rescue the drugs.

Nah, just bribe a border guard.

They have whale plastic surgery now... where you can pay to have smuggling pockets installed in the whale of your choice. if you opt for the smuggling pocket that's located on the whale's 'blow hole' channel so it can eject incriminating evidence prior to whale capture... well, you're really going to have to come out of pocket for that option. Only the wealthiest of cartels can afford this option...

End the war on drugs.

Legalize or Decriminalize drugs.

We've spent over 1 Trillion dollars fighting a war that cannot be won.

Time to change tactics.

That's sounds like some James Bond stuff there.

If there is a youtube computer animation video of the cartel's whole trick how is it still working? Maybe there is no war on drugs, that is why it is a total failure and the money really goes to black budget space programs.

Then take off and nuke the whales from orbit. Its the only way to be sure.

Paint something like that black, add some silent high-speed engines, and it would be something special forces would use.

I say criminalize the pharmaceutical companies that get people hooked on potent narcotics like Oxycodone, then cut them off, forcing addicts to buy street drugs like Heroin to maintain their habit.

"Doc, I'm depressed ."

"Here, some legal opiates will help."

"Thanks doc..."

As I understand those aren't submersible, just lo profile. If it has engines the heat signature shows up on FLIR on airborne surveillance platforms.

Well apparently the Columbian farmers make llello to pay for their groceries, and then they pay for their groceries with llello, too.

Drug trafficking ahh the beauty of it ... And don't forget to thank them for NASCAR to

U can't declare war on substances. Try it for urself get a big bag of drugs declare war on it shoot it bomb it whatever u want ... notice something oh people still want to use drugs ...

They declared war on us ... just look at the penalties for having said drugs on u back when war was declared... If life in prison is the punishment fcor a single seed ... that can't be for the people

This is still maby the 3rd or 4th most creative attempt the gps is a nice touch tho

The coolest one of heard of was the human powered mini sub
Also acid being transported in supersoakers was a good one

That is interesting so it's that simple if the farmers didn't live in poverty then they wouldn't have to plant cocoa leaves to generate basic income?

Any time you can make millions of dollars getting something from point A to point B there will always be someone to do it. No matter the laws you pass or walls you build. People will always figure out a way.

Just one of the reasons why the drug war is a failure, and always will be.

I believe the accoustic microphone arrays around the USA coastline were picking them up as well, even with electric engines.

Or maaaybe... the war on drugs is really a way to make endless profit from arrests, incarcerations and the drugs themselves. Where would the justice system be without that?

If tons and tons of drugs are being consumed by millions of addicts on a daily bass, then somebody is looking the other way as it enters the country.

Known drug traffickers are released from jail, yet legions of addicts languish in prison for the tiniest amounts of narcotic.

What that tells us about the war on drugs? That its really a war on drug addicts.
