Who really controls the Afghan heroin supply?

Chris Spivey

Following the American governments Islamic extremists attack on their own the American people on September the 11th 2001, the US government had the foresight and telepathy to draw up invasion plans of Afghanistan before the 9/11 atrocities even took place:

Insider accounts published in the British, French, and Indian media have revealed that US officials threatened war against Afghanistan during the summer of 2001. These reports include the prediction, made in July, that “if the military action went ahead, it would take place before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.” The Bush administration began its bombing strikes on the hapless, poverty-stricken country October 7, and ground attacks by US Special Forces began October 19.

It is not an accident that these revelations have appeared overseas, rather than in the US. The ruling classes in these countries have their own economic and political interests to look after, which do not coincide, and in some cases directly clash, with the drive by the American ruling elite to seize control of oil-rich territory in Central Asia.

The American media has conducted a systematic cover-up of the real economic and strategic interests that underlie the war against Afghanistan, in order to sustain the pretence that the war emerged overnight, full-blown, in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11.

Unbelievable as it may seem, the fact that the US government were so on the ball, led to huge numbers of right minded individuals  crackpot conspiracy theorists believing that 9/11 was an inside job.

Thankfully, the average American retard patriot isn’t smart enough to believe such utter nonsense and as such, backed the Monkey inspirational, George W Bush all the way when he sought retribution the following month by invading Afghanistan.

 

Meanwhile, over the sea in London, the psychopath equally savvy British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, having also had prior knowledge of the false flag terrorist atrocity, had agreed to lend a hand in the invasion counter attack on Afghanistan.

As befitting any democracy, and for the sake of transparency the US and UK, governments informed the world’s corporate controlled free press, exactly why the invasion was necessary:

 The Taliban government was overthrown by a US-led international military force after the al-Qaeda sponsored attacks on the United States of September 11 2001 because it refused to stop sheltering al-Qaeda’s leadership. Afghanistan matters to Europeans, both as EU and NATO members, because of its importance in the fight against Islamicist inspired terrorism, as the source of 92 per cent of the world’s heroin and last but not least, as a test for the future of western military intervention, and of NATO itself, in support of vital security objectives. Source

Now, while it goes without saying that any idiot can see that those are all valid reasons, it is the fact that Afghanistan was the “source of 92 per cent of the world’s heroin” that I want to concentrate on in this article.

After all, everyone – except soon to be heroin addicts – knows that Heroin will fuck up your life.

Therefore, invading the world’s biggest supplier of the drug made a lot more sense to me than the other reasons quoted by our respective governments.

Indeed, the warped cunt forward thinking Tony Blair was also in agreement:

In 2001 the then Prime Minister, Tony Blair, cited the production of illegal heroin as one of the reasons for war in Afghanistan, stating that the drugs trade was a part of the Taliban regime that “we should seek to destroy”. SOURCE

It was therefore gratifying back then, to watch the TV news and see video footage of the American and British troops setting about the task of burning down these opium fields of filth once they had sent the Taliban fleeing to the hills.

 

In doing so, not only had our brave boys cut off the Taliban money supply, they were also doing the world a favour… Although I feel sure that the heroin addicts of the world didn’t see it the same way.

The only problem with the above is that it simply isn’t true.

 

You see, in the same way that the lying arsehole Blair used the threat of non-existent WMD to invade Iraq, he also used the Taliban’s income from Heroin as a premise to invade Afghanistan. And, this simply wasn’t the case:

Last autumn, the UN reported that poppy harvests in Afghanistan had increased 18-fold in 2002 after a dramatic drop the year before following a Taliban ban on production.

Farmers had taken advantage of a power vacuum before the collapse of the Taliban in 2001 to plant the crop.

Mr Costa said that this large harvest, combined with the price rises meant that poppy production in Afghanistan may have generated around $1.2bn in 2002 – far more than in previous years. SOURCE

Having said that, it was still important to put an end to the illegal heroin trade.

 

Never the less, destroying these fields left the invading liberating forces a huge problem. Y’see, an awful lot of Afghan people depended on the money generated by the opium crop and without that income, they would surely starve.

After all, it isn’t just the farmers who would suffer by their crops being destroyed since the crop is also turned into heroin in hundreds if not thousands of chemical factories throughout the country.

And don’t forget, there is no nice Mr Duncan Smith over there to take care of them should they become unemployed.

So, when the UK was given the task of encouraging the Afghan poppy growers to start planting legal crops, it rather made me proud to be British.

After all, not only was our government giving these farmers hands on assistance and advice, they were also offering financial incentives in order to make the transition from illegal to legal less fraught.

Course, this policy wouldn’t help those who had previously worked in the heroin manufacturing factories, but at least it was a start.

And then the excuses started:

Jan 2003

The executive director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime says that the price of Afghan opium has recently risen to around $600 per kilogram, making it more difficult to offer attractive incentives for farmers to grow legal crops. Antonio Costa was speaking to the BBC in London, where he is holding talks with the UK Government, which is co-ordinating international efforts to stamp out illicit drugs production in Afghanistan. Source

Course, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that when any commodity gets scarce, the price of that commodity will sky rocket.

Neither does it take a genius to work out that by destroying the Opium fields and growing other produce heroin would become scarce, thus making the incentives to return to poppy cultivation far greater than  the incentives offered for growing legal crops … Hence the UK government appear to have not worked this catch 22 situation out.

Never the less, when the corrupt UK government inevitably went back on its word to financially assist the farmers, you couldn’t blame the poppy growers for reverting back to growing what they know best, could you:

The British government has failed to honor its pledge to compensate Afghani farmers for eradicating poppy crops, causing widespread anger in the volatile south of the country and leading to increased support for Taliban insurgents, a new report by the Senlis Council think tank claims.

“These farmers kept their side of the deal and eradicated their crops, but the British Government did not keep their word,” said Mohammad Gull, a local representative from the Sharwali District in Helmand who was involved in the initial negotiations with the British representatives. “In our culture this is very dishonorable and we are very angry.”

Gull told the Senlis Council he had over 400 checks in his possession which farmers had been unable to cash because of insufficient funds in the account. In total, the farmers allege they are owed $21 million and are planning to sue the British government for the money that was promised them.

The British Ministry of Defense was asked to comment on the Senlis Council’s allegations of broken promises to Afghan farmers but failed to reply. Source

 

However, the fact that the British government didn’t keep their word should come as no surprise. I mean, fuck me, our government doesn’t keep its promises to their own people, let alone other countries.

Still, what is truly puzzling is why the amount of heroin coming out of Afghanistan in 2013 is now at a record high? In fact, it is indeed fair to say that the rise in production of Afghan Heroin has steadily increased every year since 2001.

Course, as always our government had a feeble excuse for their failures, which up until 2005/6 was that the majority of heroin coming out of Afghanistan was being grown in the then as yet un-invaded Helmand Province:

 

The production and trafficking of opium and its derivatives continue to be the major challenge to Afghanistan’s political and economic development as well as a threat to regional stability. In 2005, drug cultivation and exports totalled an estimated US$2,7 billion, 52% of the country’s GDP.  According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s (UNODC) 2006 Annual Opium Survey Afghanistan’s opium harvest this year will reach around 6,100 tons, a record high representing an increase of 59% over the previous year.  Thus, Afghanistan’s 2006 harvest will be 92% of the total world supply.  Around the country, the number of people involved in opium production increased by almost a third in 2006 to 2.9 million, representing 12.6% of the total population.  Only six of the country’s 34 provinces are opium-free.  The latest UNODC figures on Afghan opium production show a clear link between security and opium production.  Most of the production takes place in Helmand, which accounts for 42% of Afghanistan’s opium poppy cultivation and where the security situation is one of the worst in the country.  In contrast, cultivation fell in eight provinces, mainly in the more stable north. Source

Two point Seven Billion Dollars!

That is a lot of money, although I do actually believe that the figure is vastly underestimated.

However, somewhat unsurprisingly, that Helmand Province excuse was eventually shown up for the fraud that it was:

Opium poppy production in the Afghan province of Helmand, where British forces are stationed, has tripled compared to 2006 when the British first went there, a United Nations report says.

The UN said in a report released on Monday that opium production in Helmand is increasing at a record level and “very high” cultivation levels are expected there.

According to the report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), almost half of Afghan opium is produced in Helmand where more than 75,000 hectares of land were given over to poppy cultivation last year that is up from just 25,500 hectares in 2005.  Source

 

 

So imagine how much that 2.7 Billion industry is worth now?

Doesn’t make sense does it?

After all, we know where the fields are. We know how many tons of heroin are being exported and to where. We also know how much money is being made, yet both the UK’s and USA’s pledges to wipe out the poppy fields have not only failed miserably, the heroin trade has in fact expanded and continues to do so.

The majority of Opium production in Helmand, originates from two sources, Nahr-e-Saraj and Nad-e-Ali. Yet both are under British control. So just what the fuck is going on?

Are the military lying to us?

Can they not find these fucking fields, because if they can’t, I’m pretty dam sure that I could find them using Google Earth, let alone the hi-tech spy satellites the military has at its disposal.

The following is from an article published in the Telegraph in 2012 and written by Sean Rayment. However, the article actually makes little sense if you buy into what Rayment, an MSM journalist is saying:

When I was in southern Afghanistan in 2006, rather than destroying the poppy, senior British officers were under strict orders not to take part in any form of eradication despite indisputable evidence that the Taliban were selling drugs to buy weapons. In effect, as many soldiers told me, the British were fighting with one hand tied behind their backs.

During one patrol that I accompanied, an officer openly derided the folly of the British policy. “We are not allowed to destroy this poppy,” he said, his voice trembling with anger. “But the money made from selling the opium will go to the Taliban who will use it to pay people to kill British soldiers. Where’s the sense in that?”

As security in provinces such as Helmand and Kandahar disintegrated, the area dedicated to poppy cultivation started to grow. In the years that followed, over 400 British troops were killed and over 2,000 were injured as the Taliban fought to hold onto their areas of opium production. Yet not a single hectare of opium was destroyed.

When asked why poppy fields aren’t destroyed, given that they represent almost the sole source of the Taliban’s income, most officers simply say: “It isn’t our problem”. Source

 

Now, if you believe that old bollocks, you will believe anything – As most idiots do as it happens.

Never the less, I will recap so as you can see just how improbable, far fetched and about as believable as the tooth fairy, the official version is.

Following September 11th 2001 America & the UK almost immediately invade Afghanistan, supposedly because Osama Bin Laden was hiding out there, as well as to put a stop to the heroin trade which blights so many people’s lives and of which Afghanistan is responsible for 92 % of the world’s supply.

Despite an operation of this size requiring months if not years to plan, President Bush and Prime Minister Blair sort it in a month.

In that first year between 2001-2002 the heroin supply increases 18 fold. The reason for this according to our government is because the Taliban had banned the opium fields before the conflict and as such, the invasion had sparked a free for all amongst poppy farmers.

When the heroin output increased again between 2003 – 2004 – despite widely distributed video footage of our brave troops attacking the poppy fields with flame throwers, as well as the financial incentives offered to the Poppy farmers to grow legal crops – our government blamed the price rise in heroin for the increase in production.

According to the government, the price of heroin had risen dramatically as a direct result of the shortage in heroin – despite an 18 fold increase in supply – brought about by the invasion, leading the poppy farmers to say “stuff your financial incentives that you aren’t paying us in the first place, I’m off to grow some heroin”.

With it so far?

Good, then I shall continue.

When the amount of heroin coming out of Afghanistan increased again the following year, the government told us it was because 42% of heroin came out of the Taliban controlled Helmand Province.

I suppose that would be fair enough if the supply of heroin coming out of Afghanistan as a whole had decreased by 58%. However, the fact that the heroin supply had increased for the 5th year running suggested a flaw in the explanation.

Never the less, by 2006 the USA and UK military had control of Helmand Province which has led to a yearly increase in the amount of heroin production every year right up to present day.

According to our government – and you will fucking love this explanation –  the constant yearly rise in production is because they dare not destroy the poppy fields for fear of upsetting the farmers, whom they had already upset by not honouring their side of the original deal to compensate the farmers and assist them in growing legal crops.

Furthermore, our government were now claiming that the poppy fields – which are under British military control  – were now funding the Taliban to buy weapons although the Taliban had originally banned opium cultivation before the invasion.

And clever people buy that old bollocks hook line and sinker.

Course, even if there was a hint of truth in that official version, you have to ask yourself, since the military knows exactly how many fields there are, where they are, the exact quantity of produce, where the produce is being turned into heroin, where the heroin is being smuggled out of the country and which countries the heroin is being smuggled into: Why the fuck don’t they follow the trail and simply apprehend the heroin at the docks or wherever else it is being delivered to? Job sorted, everyone’s happy.

Doesn’t make sense does it?

There is however an alternative explanation. But then again, you would have to be mad to believe it. This alternative goes like this.

Prior to September 11th 2001 Afghanistan has no Rothschild controlled central bank. Moreover, George W Bush has had his repeated requests to run a major gas/oil pipeline through Afghanistan repeatedly turned down.

And, Just as importantly, Afghanistan is the home of the multi-billion dollar heroin industry.

Therefore, plans for an invasion of Afghanistan were drawn up long before September 11th 2001.

To justify the invasion, the American government arranged for two aeroplanes to be flown into the condemned twin towers of the WTC and  blame this act on a dying CIA asset named Osama Bin Laden.

The Bin Ladens are long time business associates of the corrupt Bush family.

Once Afghanistan is invaded a Rothschild controlled central bank is established. George W Bush gets his pipeline built, and the previously outlawed opium trade is given the green light to resume, with the UK and USA governments now the biggest and most well organised drug dealers in the world.

And if the government get caught smuggling heroin into Britain, they simply blame the soldiers. Source

 

But only a madman would believe that simple explanation, wouldn’t I.

Until the next time.

Much love,

Chris.
