[please pay close attention to 6:16 through to the 7:13 minute marks]

( There might be more to the drug trade then just making money.)

[Sasha Pelikhov says,“My opinion is, that bringing in heroin to Russia is one of the ways of degenerating the nation. The fact that it’s so simple to load the country with heroin indicates to me that there’s some kind of agenda to degenerate the Russian nation by extremist countries and maybe even by Al-Qaeda“.]

what “extremist” country would want to weaken the population of another country? Al-Qaeda? Maybe….Maybe not!

Notice where the opium for the heroin is coming from? Same place it’s coming to America from!
Iran is the only other country, rich with the poppy plant, that isn’t dominated by the UN.
But they are working on it.

NATO Wednesday rejected Russian calls for it to eradicate opium poppy fields in Afghanistan, saying the best way for Moscow to help control the drug would be to give more assistance against the insurgency

[EXCERPT] Russia's anti-drugs czar, Victor Ivanov, met NATO ambassadors in Brussels and proposed that NATO troops be given a U.N. mandate and an obligation to eradicate Afghan opium crops, which were killing 30,000 Russians a year

But NATO spokesman James Appathurai said the drug problem had to be handled carefully to avoid alienating local people. He said the alliance was continuing efforts to target drug lords and drug labs, but added at a news briefing:

"We cannot be in a situation where we remove the only source of income of people who live in the second poorest country in the world without being able to provide them with an alternative."

((((WHAT???? Second poorest country in the world’s only source of income?????????? WHO IS BUYING THE OPIUM??????? Sure not the Afghanistan people…they are POOR…remember???!!!))))

Poppy cultivation: Russia lambastes NATO

Over the past few years Afghan heroin consumption has grown into a major health problem in Russia.

Based on matching data from the UN and the Russia’s federal drug control agency, poppy production has jumped 40 times since the US intervention in Afghanistan, reaching 7 500 tons in 2008.

Repeat: poppy production has jumped 40 times since the US intervention in Afghanistan, reaching 7 500 tons in 2008.

Afghan opium production 'soars'

The World Drug Report says more than 90% of illegal opium, which is used to make heroin, comes from Afghanistan.
It says cultivation of opium poppies increased dramatically in the country, despite the presence of more than 30,000 international troops there.
In the 1980s, Afghanistan produced some 30% of the world's opium, but now that figure has more than tripled, the UN document says.
(this was back in 2007...wow…imagine it now?)

In a Febuary 16, 2001, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette news article:
http://news.google.com/newspapers...
Titled:“Opium Production Virtually Wiped Out”, states that the Taliban was working hard to eradicate the cultivation of opium, and ‘was’ succeeding.

In 2001, it was almost nil…by 2007 it had sky rocketed to twice what it was at the beginning in 1994

I can go on, and on, and on, slapping you with hard cold facts…but what’s the use? But at least you know the truth about “our” drug problem in the USA, as well as Russia‘s drug problem.
