Afghanistan has been the greatest illicit opium producer in the entire world, ahead of Burma (Myanmar) and the "Golden Triangle" since 1992, excluding the year 2001.

Afghanistan is the main producer of opium in the "Golden Crescent". Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. Based on UNODC data, there has been more opium poppy cultivation in each of the past four growing seasons (2004–2007) than in any one year during Taliban rule.

Also, more land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 92% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan. This amounts to an export value of about $4 billion...

While Herat is not the highest-volume area of opium trade, Herat, and the other Iranian border areas of Farah, and Nimroz, have some of the highest prices, presumably due to demand from the Iranian market.

"Opium prices are especially high in Iran, where law enforcement is strict and where a large share of the opiate consumption market is still for opium rather than heroin. Not surprisingly, it appears that very significant profits can be made by crossing the Iranian border or by entering Central Asian countries like Tajikistan."


Afghan Opium - Wiki

That should be enough to get you started on the Afghan/Iran opium connection...


Heroin from Myanmar is mainly trafficked to China and Mexican heroin is mainly trafficked to the United States of America, while Afghan heroin is trafficked to every region of the world, except South and Central America.

Opiates flow from Afghanistan through Pakistan, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Central Asia before moving to the main consumer markets in West and Central Europe, East Europe, and East and South-East Asia.

Opiate users generated an estimated US$68 billion in revenue for traffickers in 2009 – with around US$60 billion from Afghan opiates.

However, if only opiate use is considered (non pharmaceuticals), more than half of the world’s estimated
opiate (heroin and opium) users are in Asia...

In Asia, the vast majority of heroin consumption occurred in China, Pakistan, the Islamic Republic of Iran and India.

Of the total number of global users, the vast majority – accounting for more than 80% of global consumption – was in Asia.

In East and South-East Asia, opiates continue to be used at high rates. In 2009, heroin ranked as the main drug
used in China.

Treatment demand for heroin dependence remains high across East and South-East Asia, ranging from 50% of
all treatment demand in Singapore to around 80% in China and 98% in Viet Nam.

Isn't laughing at something painful a human defense response? Kind of like when you stub a toe and laugh to keep from sobbing?

The largest portion of U.S. debt, 68 cents for every dollar or about $10 trillion, is owned by individual investors, corporations, state and local governments and, yes, even foreign governments such as China that hold Treasury bills, notes and bonds.

Foreign governments hold about 46 percent of all U.S. debt held by the public, more than $4.5 trillion. The largest foreign holder of U.S. debt is China, which owns more about $1.2 trillion in bills, notes and bonds, according to the Treasury.

In total, China owns about 8 percent of publicly held U.S. debt. Of all the holders of U.S. debt China is the third-largest, behind only the Social Security Trust Fund's holdings of nearly $3 trillion and the Federal Reserve's nearly $2 trillion holdings in Treasury investments, purchased as part of its quantitative easing program to boost the economy.

To put China's ownership of U.S. debt in perspective, its holding of $1.2 trillion is even larger than the amount owned by American households. U.S. citizens hold only about $959 billion in U.S. debt, according to the Federal Reserve.


USGOVINFO - Public Debt

China is the third largest holder behind the....

1) SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND ( Government and BANKRUPT)

and the...

2) FEDERAL RESERVE...

Now... excluding the Fed and SS, since we both know you can take those out...

China actually DOES hold a 90% share of all of our debt, considering the rest is spread out over the rest of the planet.

Oh...

And if you read the link, even the government admits...

China owns more US debt than even Americans...

Now... who owns our economy again?
