So now we are hearing about U.S. airstrikes on drug labs in Afghanistan.

Apparently 9 have been destroyed so far in recent days.

Has this been going on before?

Or is this a new plan from the new Trump Administration ?

If this is "new", why haven't they been targeting these "Labs" before? Or have they?

US, Afghan Airstrikes Destroy 9 Taliban Drug Labs in Afghanistan


U.S. and Afghan airstrikes have destroyed nine Taliban drug factories and labs, killing 44 suspected traffickers in a border area of southern Helmand province.

The combined offensive is aimed at targeting the revenue streams of terrorists, according to officials.

Regional military corps commander, General Wali Mohammad Ahmadzai, told VOA that bombings of drug-producing centers started late Tuesday and continued into Wednesday morning.

What drugs were they making?wouldn't be meth,..doubt it was heroin...I'd say it was hashish....which ain't really a drug lab is it. That region produces one of the finest grades of hash,and has done for thousands of years. No added chemicals, maybe a bit of sand lol.

Is the CIA going to have a dry spell and not get the deliveries back to the US on time?

You would think that we would have destroyed those labs years ago instead of ignoring their existance. But then there would be no war to fight to make the American people believe we are doing good. Why now though, after ignoring this kind of strategy from the beginning.

They are likely outdated and unused labs, destroyed for media consumption.

Probably. I have questioned things like this for a long time, people are easily fooled to believe these labs are new. They have been there for a long time processing those drugs for sale. Maybe you are right, maybe there is new labs or maybe these were not labs at all they bombed.

We will never know, I guess that's why we are speculating.

Why would you rule that out? Afghanistan was the world's largest opium exporter for decades.

Sad, Trump was in Asia so maybe the drugs will now come from Asia with a high price tag.

Lol, wow 9 taliban drug labs? Total asset value of a few chocolate bars, and rebuilt in the time it would take to eat them too.

Good work white knights!

Always sus about these kids of claims since I watched at doco some years ago in which it was stated that 95-98% of all drugs entering europe come from afghnistan.

90- 95% of drugs entering the US come from 4-5 countires in south America all of which have regimes friendly to the US govt.

Interesting twist to the story. F-22s and B-52s were apparently used in the strikes.

No, they'll just use this as an excuse to raise the price on the 'user end' and just in time for Chris†mas™ time bonuses...

Could We also see new colored hoods for ISIS™ in time for the Spring 18 Collection?
