The US government has been smuggling illicit substances for years now.

In Vietnam it was heroin, in Afghanistan its poppy, in Columbia its coc aine.

The same in every place.

We invade for some bull# reason to cover the tracks of our drug operation.

Every time the CIA and other intelligence agencies get to fund their 'black ops' while the rest of us pay taxes to support the war.

These drug lords are they themselves puppets to organisations like CIA?
Who ultimatetly profits from the drug traficking business?

When Taliban were in power they tried their best to get rid of these poppy fields and drug traficking.Since the US took over, the drug business is booming.

The drug lords are the CIA "masters". At least some of them.

The government profits from drug trafficking. We pay taxes to eradicate coc aine in Columbia, cannabis in California (Texas and other places as well), and poppy in Afghanistan.

However, that money is pocketed and much of the confiscated drugs are sold on the streets.

Pharmaceuticals profit from plants being illegal. Many pills are opiates, (opium based from poppy) the 'caine' medicine have elements of the coca plant in them I believe (not 100% sure on this one, but they're similar anyway), and cannabis is exploited through the marinol pill.

Aside from drug companies, there are many others who profit.

Ask yourself who would benefit from these drugs remaining illegal?

I agree with the opium production in Afghanistan. I've made several posts about the opium trade in the Middle East, but none seemed to pay attention.

Its not that easy to come to terms with the fact that our government lies to us and really doesn't have the best interest of the people at heart.

The truth hurts.

andy,

There has been speculation that the US economy is propped up from our drug sales.

I would not be surprised.

What better way to launder money than to directly inject it into the economy? Untraceable.

Sounds more like the illegal drugs are being recycled in the same system that made it 'illegal'.Not a bad way to get the cash rolling.

No its a great scam.

Here's a few links to get you started. I would suggest doing research on your own to find out the level of complacency by our 'leaders.'

CIA involvement in drug trade - ATS source

"White lies" about the drug war in Columbia

CIA drug trafficking activities



www.fas.org... A Tangled Web: A History of CIA Complicity in Drug International Trafficking

This seems to be a great resource from WW2-1996.

The Contras, Cocaine, and Covert Operations

Bush will not stop Afghan opium trade

Poppies, Pot, Oil, and the CIA

The Assassinated Press

You may also want to check out the Research forum:

CIA front research thread

There's some good resources in that thread as well to let you in on the CIA's dirty little secrets.



This is by no means a definitive list.

Aircraft's Owners in 5.5 Ton Cocaine Bust Include Tom DeLay Appointee

ATS - 5 ton coke bust- planes owners- Tom Delays appointee, and CIA?

CIA Plane crashes with Coke on board

ATS - CIA Torture Jet wrecks with 4 Tons of COCAINE

It is also known that the Taliban outlawed opium before they got taken down out of power.

Since the US has been in Afghanistan the rate of opium has gone up 95% or more.

Its not rocket science to see that the CIA and US government control the drug trade.

The 2 links above.. There are threads about them here on ATS.

I lived in Vietnam a few years ago and the rumour I heard was that the heroin was being shipped back in dead soldiers caskets out of Danang air force base.

The taliban crushed the development of heroin until the U.S led invasion, then all of a sudden production is up 200%. All that evil drug travels throughout the world and destroys peoples brains. You would think an invasion would made it harder to produce it.

The americans could spray them poppy fields. I remember hearing blair saying they were going to stop the poppy fields, but i just laughed at the time. Now we see they have no intention of doing that, and like you said its doubled.

Its amazing this double talk they have.

I just posted loads of links that prove the US is involved in the Mexican drug cartel so yes, them going to other countries and supplying drugs is real. We do it every day. Its just that if the government does it its ok. Where as if us normal folks do it its a crime.

They are spraying some fields..but the Afghan government does NOT want wholesale spraying, because it can not only kill non-narcotic plants, but the effects on the water and people are too bad to handle. They are hand sspraying right now, but that is all show and no go; a photo op only.

The bottom line: The world heroin market has been managed for decades by the intel agencies. It gives them a lot of cash for black ops, and also some other intel they pick up along the way.If the world wanted to rid itself of the poppy plant, it could have done so the same way they got rid of Quaalaudes many years ago: Stop all manufacturing of medicines that contain the main ingredient and carefully watch the precurson chems. But since poppies account for legal products as well, they NEED poppies.

Cocaine is the only Schedule 2 that comes from a plant directly. It is only used now is specific cases of ear, nose and throat surgeons and such for numbing areas. The other ' caine ' lidocaine, etc. are all synthetic substitutes that are almost as effective yet have no ' rush ' effects for the user. Pharmaceutical coc aine is almost unheard of anymore as no hospitals, pharmacies, etc. want to handle and store it and watch it closely while dispensed.

Heroin is the ONLY drug market that never changes, due to the nature of the drug and the population that uses it. It will not come and go like ' fad ' drugs ( crack , ecstasy , etc. ) and is a reliable and constant source of money. They know that there is a stable and older population of junkies that will always depend on a market, and the intel guys will never allow purely criminal cabals to control it: The money is just too big.


Eever notive that the main, high level kingpins are always taken down ( on the rare occasions when they need some publicity ) when they refuse to play the game. If they will not be under the thumb of the truly big shots them off they go to jail. Dennis Hastert, speaker of the house, is a drug gangster and has taken massive cash payoff's- he took Tip O'Neill's place as the bag man for the inside players.

Our leaders are corrupt as hell and we are seeing the America we love go to hell, and fast.

Another thing people should question, is what about islands like ibiza, that are drug ridden. Why do they let those islands exist to do what they do?

Obviuosly for money, but if there really was a war against drugs, ibiza would not be a island of much appeal to party goers would it.

Haha they were doing it like Bad Boys 2 styles were they? Instead of hiding cash in caskets, they were hiding drugs...

Yep, that was the rumour, if true, just shows you, what sort of people run this sort of thing.
