Ex-ISI Chief talks about Afghanistan (by way of Kenny’s Sideshow) - Before the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, the country produced about 4,500 tons of opium per year. By the end of the Taliban reign in 2001 that number was down to 50 tons. The Taliban had reduced the production of opium by 99% in about 5 years. Last year over 6,000 tons of opium was produced and exported by Afghanistan and the U.S. military is targeting the “insurgent” linked drug lords… not the 98% of them that aren’t “insurgent” linked. In fact, President Hamid Karzai’s brother is one of the biggest drug lords in Afghanistan. There are also credible allegations of U.S. military aircraft being used to transport opium out of the country.
Obama’s “Kill or capture drug lords in Afghanistan” order – I wonder if this order includes President Karzai’s brother? Kind of like that scene in American Gangster when Denzel Washington just walked right up to the rival drug dealer and blew his head off in broad daylight, huh?
(Bit of irony: the story of the film American Gangster is the story of Frank Lucas, a major league drug dealer who rose to power by having a connection send him heroin directly from the source… using military transport planes returning from the Vietnam war. According to the film, the U.S. military had “no idea” that was taking place…. yeah right.)
The Spice must Flow – The demand for cheap heroin is on the rise from the south of China to the border states of Mexico and everywhere in between. In Mexico especially, the “War on Drugs” serves it’s horrible dual purpose; generating massive untraceable wealth (which must be laundered through the banks while THEY take their cut) and the justification for the militaristic crack-down on the civilian population. In 2006, 12,000 Mexican civilians died compared to 72 soldiers in their “War on Drugs”. Most people wouldn’t call that much of a war. Mexicans call it oppression.
Rampant corruption and the pending rigged election in Afghanistan – Occupiers NEVER bring democracy; they install dictators. We should have learned this lesson from the Romans and the British empires before us. There is no question among U.S. intelligence forces and even the White House advisers to the country, that the election about to take place in Afghanistan is a fraud. And yet nothing will be done to change it. In this case, democracy just doesn’t serve our purpose of “keeping the barbarians from coming together“.
Understanding “The Right War” and all it’s Globalist implications – An adviser to President Obama, Zbigniew Brzezinski, once wrote “For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia… Now a non-Eurasian power is preeminent in Eurasia – and America’s global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained.“
