Funny, Isn't It, How Everywhere The US Goes, Drug Smuggling Miraculously Proliferates

"JALALABAD, Afghanistan February 15, 2001
U.N. drug control officers said the Taliban religious militia has nearly wiped out opium production in Afghanistan -- once the world's largest producer -- since banning poppy cultivation last summer.
A 12-member team from the U.N. Drug Control Program spent two weeks searching most of the nation's largest opium-producing areas and found so few poppies that they do not expect any opium to come out of Afghanistan this year

"Opium production in Afghanistan, which provides more than 90 percent of the world's heroin, broke all records in 2006, reaching a historic high despite ongoing U.S.-sponsored eradication efforts, the Bush administration reported yesterday." Afghanistan Opium Crop Sets Record

"The Vesti report said drugs from Afghanistan are flown by US transport aircraft to bases Ganci in Kyrgyzstan and Incirlik in Turkey. Russian journalist Arkadi Dubnov quotes Afghan sources as saying that "85 per cent of all drugs produced in southern and southeastern provinces are shipped abroad by US aviation."

"Presidents Felipe Calderon and George W. Bush are preparing to launched a billion dollar drug interdiction project that the Mexican press has named "Plan Mexico". The controversial plan is being compared to the failed "Plan Columbia" that actually increased the amount of cocaine, heroin and marijuana entering the United States from the nation of Columbia. "Plan Mexico" is being launched shortly after a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) connected jet plane crashed outside Cancun, Mexico with 4 tons of cocaine.

Freedom for the fascists to make fortunes with poison, and to use the phony war on drugs to implement their police state.

Its not so much the fortunes, they have many ways to gain those. But most drugs end up being used by the lower middle and lower economic class and the provide an excellent way to keep them dumbed-down. Fascist states depend upon sophisticated propoganda and properly doled out fear tactics to control the masses and convince them that their lack of freedoms and liberties is justified. By keeping a significant segment of the population both high and poor through drug use, it enhances this strategy. This is especially true among those who, in addition to being economically discriminated against, are racially divided. These groups who have the potential to be highly agitated by their plight, and thus highly aggressive, are perfect candidates for the fascists drug therapy.
