How the CIA Operates the International Drug Trade and keeps Drugs Illegal in US

How the CIA Runs the Global Drug Trade and Manipulates American Drug Laws

What keeps the drug industry going is its huge profit margins. Processed cocaine is available in Colombia for $1500 dollars per kilo and sold on the streets of America for as much as $66,000 a kilo (retail). Heroin costs $2,600/kilo in Pakistan, but can be sold on the streets of America for $130,000/kilo (retail).

Drugs and Guns are the two most profitable industries in the world, so as long as we operate under the same rules of capitalism and materialism like we have been for so many years, nothing can or will ever change the status quo.

If the Illicit Drug Industry is the second largest industry in the world, the Anti-Drug Industry, or DEA, is the next largest. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish where one ends and the other begins.
"In my 30 year history in DEA, the major targets of my investigations almost invariably turned out to be working for the CIA." - Dennis Dayle, Chief of an elite DEA unit in Central America.
The CIA has control of the global drug trade. Just as the British Empire was in part financed by their control of the opium trade through the British East India Company, so too has the CIA been found time after time to be at the heart of the modern international drug trade. From its very inception, the CIA has been embroiled in the murky underworld of drug trafficking.

There are billions of dollars per year to be made in keeping the drug trade going, and it has long been established that Wall Street and the major American banks rely on drug money as a ready source of liquid capital. With those kinds of funds at stake, it is unsurprising to see a media-government-banking nexus develop around the status quo of a never-ending war on drugs – aided, abetted and facilitated by the modern-day British East India Company, the CIA.

The CIA has been involved in drug trafficking long before former President George H.W. Bush served as the CIA Director, but it was while he was in charge that CIA drug trafficking was first exposed and 47 members the Reagan Staff were convicted and imprisoned.

This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett presenting the history, documented facts, and cases on the CIA’s involvement and operations in the underworld of drug trafficking, from the Corsican Mafia in the 1940s through the 1980s Contras to the recent Zambada Niebla Case today.

Now it's not just the United States being bombarded with drugs. Today Russia, the CIS Countries (the Commonwealth of Independent States is a regional organization whose participating countries are former Soviet Republics, formed during the breakup of the Soviet Union) and all of Europe are under covert assault by the CIA, Mossad, and Drugs Inc.

It appears that the cold war has gone into a new and deadly direction. Currently Russia, the CIS countries as well as the rest of Europe are suffering from a new drug epidemic from the vast quantities of cheap, high quality heroin from Afghanistan. Since the US occupation, the Opium production in Afghanistan has increased one hundred thousand fold.

It is well documented that US soldiers and private contractors are both protecting the poppy fields and safeguarding the cultivation. And with the occupation of Afghanistan, the US controls the source of this cheap high quality heroin, managed by the CIA, being is responsible for this plague upon the people of the Eastern Asia and Europe, not to mention the vast quantities of the drug which make it back to the United States.

To see how the CIA organizes the international drug trade, we must only look as far as former CIA officer, John Millis, who served for thirteen years as a case officer supplying covert CIA aid to the heroin-trafficking guerrillas in AfghanistanÑan analogous and contemporary alliance between the CIA and known drug-traffickers (New York Times, 6/6/00). At least one of the airlines involved in the Afghan support operation, Global International Airways, was also named in connection with the Iran-Contra scandal (Los Angeles Times, 2/20/97).

During the same time as the Contras, the CIA was arming and advising heroin-trafficking guerrillas in Afghanistan. Its leader, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, became one of the leading heroin suppliers of the world. During the last few years, the CIA has helped promote the KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army), whose leaders and arms had been financed by Kosovar drug-traffickers. Indeed, the CIA's practice of recruiting drug-financed armies is an on-going, never-ending affair. Using Laotians, whose sole cash crop was opium, the CIA recruited an army numbering in the tens of thousands. 

It is easy to see how these practices by the CIA have greatly contributed to the drug crisis worldwide, including the United States. When the first established contact was made with heroin-trafficking Afghan guerrillas in 1979, no Afghan-Pakistan heroin was known to have ever reached the United States. By 1984, according to the Reagan Administration, 54 percent of the heroin reaching this country came from the Afghan-Pakistan border. Today, it is estimated that well over 90% of the world's heroin comes from Afghanistan!

In a typical year, Afghan farmers sell around 7,000 tons of opium, which converts into around 1,000 tons of heroin. That comes out to roughly $900 million in annual revenues for the farmers, $1.6 billion for the local traffickers within Afghanistan, and another $1.5 billion for those who smuggle heroin out of the country. You do the math.

The CIA is more or less responsible for providing the contacts, protection, transportation and required chemicals to process raw opium into heroin. Without these elements the whole multi-billion dollar operation would not be possible. Again, you do the math.

The United States Department of Agriculture is even providing agricultural advice (at US taxpayer expense), to increase the yield per acre of opium poppies. The USA is sponsoring this chemical attack upon the Russian people and their allies.

Of course, the Afghanistan heroin operation is just one of many CIA dug trafficking fronts. The same thing they are doing there with heroin they are doing in Columbia, Chile and Peru with cocaine and in Mexico, Central and South America with Marijuana (read my article, The Great American Marijuana Conspiracy and/or get The Emperor Wears no Clothes FREE marijuana conspiracy ebook, just for signing up for the FREE Conspiracy Watch Newsletter).  

The proceeds of CIA drug sales now buys elected officials, judges and entire police departments and law enforcement agencies around the globe. The corruption goes from the US and Mexico, to Europe, Eurasia and even Southeast Asia. Wherever people have power, the CIA will buy them and their influence.

The US government has no desire to stop the drug epidemic in America, much less anywhere else, as too many American politicians and businessmen are getting very wealthy from both domestic and international illegal drug problems.

I will be bringing you more on the phony War on Drugs, here on Conspiracy Watch, as I continue to track government conspirators across the globe.

For now, I would appreciate your feedback, as you let Conspiracy Watch readers know how you feel about The War on Drugs and our government official's involvement in keeping millions of people addicted or locked up for their own profit.

China Warns Russia of Coming Armageddon Initiated by the United States and its Allies

WWIII has never been this possible!

For years economists, political analysts and experts have been warning of an approaching Armageddon, however until now these warnings had only been based on predictions. Finally there are supporting documents that expose an actual real-life plot to perpetrate a world war, to bring about a new world order.

According to a document, known as the Federal Security Services (FSB) report, China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) was given the outline of a US plan for global dominance by Bryan Underwood, a former Blackwater mercenary, who was a security guard at a US consulate in China.

The forces of the US and its allies are close to total, all-out war with Russia and China. 

Chinese intelligence sources verified Underwood’s story, saying that over 1,000 top-secret US documents and photographs obtained by them show an American government “under siege” from multiple threats they fear will spread “unprecedented chaos” from which “normal order” will never be able to be reestablished again.

A Chinese Ministry of Defense bulletin to Prime Minister Putin and President Medvedev today states that President Hu Jintao agreed that the only way to stop Western aggression of the United States and its allies is through “direct and immediate military action.” The Chinese military has been placed on the ‘highest alert’ possible, with Hu ordering his Naval Forces to “prepare for warfare, " with Putin going even further when he warned Russia’s top generals to “Prepare for Armageddon.”

Chinese President Hu and Russian Prime Minister Putin  
Hu’s call for war joins Chinese Rear Admiral and prominent military commentator Zhang Zhaozhong who, likewise, warned this past week that “China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a Third World War,” and Russian General Makarov who stated last week, “I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons.”

To fully understand the underlying reasons behind the tensions between East and West, we must first investigate the United States and its Western allies push for Total Global War, which was recently detailed by the top American investigative journalist Greg Hunter, whose in depth report titled “Is the World Spinning Out of Control?” revealed that the entire structure of the Western economic systems is crumbling under the weight of over $100 Trillion in debt no one is able to pay and wherein he warned: “Never in history has the world been this close to total financial chaos and nuclear war at the same time.”

Unfortunately, as massive protests are already spreading around the world due to the Global Economic Meltdown, which have resulted in over 700 arrests Sunday in New York City alone and with more unrest spreading like wildfire across the United States, the elitist's fears appear to be well founded. With this in mind, can you imagine the confusion, disarray, even anarchy that would result if word got out to the public of an eminent total financial collapse and world war?

The US leadership is also exhibiting fears over new reports of the “unprecedented loss” of our Earth’s protective ozone layer over the Arctic, the scope of which has been suppressed by officials and downplayed by mainstream media, which however is expected to cause natural disasters of unprecedented proportions, the very beginning of which we sampled this year already.

As open revolution becomes more likely of a threat to the United States, due in part to the unstoppable “Global Financial Apocalypse” that will wipe out the both the Dollar and the Euro, while at the same time our ecosystems are collapsing, the report details an insidious US government conspiracy to “manage and control” these disasters by “embracing mass genocide” as a means to assure the survival of America's elite.

US plans for world dominance, known as “Project for a New American Century, or PNAC,” date back to the 1990's. Then, in September 2001, former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, one of the think tanks members, warned that if the war fails to significantly alter the worlds geopolitical map, the US will not achieve its aim to become the worlds only dominant superpower.

The West's power elite has been demonstrating aggression since WWII. The rest of the world has been watching the US launch multiple wars in the Middle East and Africa without attributing it to deliberate policy. All over the globe the US flexes its muscles and tries to dictate its will upon sovereign nations. Once loved and respected as the beacon of hope, righteousness and good will, we have become hated all over the world as an arrogant, aggressive, war mongering country! What has happened to the United States of America? Why don't we stay out of every body else's business and worry about our own problems?

In one way or another the US and its NATO alliance is involved in wars or significant conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Uganda, Libya and unofficially, still in Iraq. Other fields of expanded military aggression include Pakistan, Syria and possibly Iran. The US and its allies are currently involved in at least seven wars in the Middle East, and with the possible exception of Iraq, the wars are escalating rather than diminishing.

Its no wonder that both Putin and Hu were “enraged” by the deception of the West in regards to Libya, when given “absolute assurances” by the Obama administration that they weren't planning an invasion, broke its word and did it anyway.

And its not surprising that Russian and China stopped another plan for war this week by vetoing the US-backed plan in the United Nations Security Council to turn Syria into another Libya. The UN envoy of Susan Rice stormed out of the meeting when the US and its allies didn’t get what they wanted.

Fearing Western aggression, Syria's President warned this week that if his nation was attacked by NATO he would fire hundreds of missiles into Israel’s most populated city of Tel Aviv within six hours, which would, of course, bring about a catastrophic nuclear response.

The 4 part plan that is causing Russia and China to prepare for war is as follows:
1. America's intentional destruction of both US and EU economies
2. America's launching of a all-out conventional war by the US and NATO
3. America's release of bio-weapons to kill off billions of people in order to reduce the world's population.
4. America's call for a new world order to prevent the total destruction of our planet.
To show how close this war could be, the FSB in their report states that it will be “much sooner than later,” considering the Americans have already positioned nearly 2,000 of their M1 Abrams main battle tanks in Iraq, 2,000 in Afghanistan, and tens-of-thousands of other armored vehicles between the Middle East and Asia have.

As Obama's influential adviser and Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman stated, “What we need is actually the financial equivalent of war. What actually brought the Great Depression to an end was the enormous public spending program otherwise known as World War II.”

To put things in perspective, World War II and its countless millions of casualties, which was seen by the elite as nothing more than a huge boost to our economy, shows how dangerous these elitists are to our world and the unimaginable lengths they will go to insure their own well-being and survival.

And while you are probably asking yourself why all this is not headline news, it is because of the United States leadership's fear of “unprecedented chaos” that this information has been kept out of the mainstream media. To explain how and why this type of news is silenced, read my article from Wednesday, July 13, 2011, 25 Ways the NWO Suppresses the Truth with Disinformation and Lies.

If you would like to read further into the WWIII scenario, I recommend you read The Next Great Clash, written by Michael Levin and augmented by his personal experience in China, Russia, and the United States, combines years of scholarly research and political analysis along with a riveting and up-to-date history of Chinese-Russian relations. This bold and iconoclastic tour de horizon is a must-read for anyone interested in international affairs of the world's only 3 superpowers.

I will close with the warning, that when the call for a “Full Mobilization” of over 1.5 million American reserve forces will be issued sooner or later. When that day comes, be ready for total war.

Do you believe that the US elite could and/or would initiate a world war in order to establish a new world order? Your opinions and comments are appreciated.

The Next Great Clash
These are uncertain times. The balance of power is continually shifting worldwide. In The Next Great Clash, Michael Levin presents evidence of a global political order on the verge of a historic power shift from West to East. A reemerging China is the only nation with the latent capacity to challenge American hegemony, and Levin demonstrates that such challenges to the status quo usually lead to war. Russia, even in its diminished capacity since the end of the Cold War, has positioned itself as the swing player in a future war between the United States and China.

NOTE: Although I thoroughly researched this article before publishing, with one of the main sources being Dr. Christof Lehmann of NSNBC, one of the other sources could not be verified. However, the strengthening alliance between China and Russia is well documented and causing the US leadership great concern, particularly when observing the massive buildup of the Chinese military in conjunction with the threatening language coming from both of these nations. Therefore, even should the information regarding the Federal Security Services (FSB) report turn out to be exaggerated or even false, I stand behind the overall message of this article.

101 Most Bizarre Suburban Myths in History

Suburban myths are Mistaken Beliefs passed on through the Ages

Suburban myths are common mistaken beliefs that are passed on as "known truths" through the ages, generation to generation, from father to son, mother to daughter and grandparents to grandchildren, even from "experts" to laymen. 

Bellow you will find the 101 craziest, most unbelievable suburban myths that have fooled society through the ages and up to this day. 

Suburban myths are not to be confused with urban legends. You will undoubtedly question some of them, but although I am including source info links to back up the disputed myths as far as they are available, I challenge you to research those listed myths you question to be inaccurate and share your finding with Conspiracy Watch readers in the form of a comment.

So, without further ado, here are the 100 Most Bizarre Suburban Myths in History:

Myth 1. Evolution is just a theory. However, Creationism is just a theory, too. Natural selection does not require that one “get rid of God as the creator of life” any more than heliocentrism requires one to get rid of God as the creator of the heavens.

Myth 2. Darwin's theory of evolution, the theory of natural selection, implies inequality of sexes, races, and nations. If you check out Darwin's book, The Origin of Species (now available as an e-book), one of the most controversial books ever written, you will find that Darwin wrote nothing hinting to support this myth. In The Origin of Species, Darwin explains his theory of evolution, starting a feud between science and the church that still goes on to this day. Darwin's book introduced the theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection.The political and theological implications have been intensely debated to this day. The Origin of Species is one of the most important works of scientific study ever published.

Myth 3. The second law of thermodynamics proves that evolution is wrong.

Myth 4. Creationism implies that evolutionism and the Big Bang theory are false.

Myth 5. Charles Darwin renounced evolution and his theory of natural selection on his deathbed.

Myth 6. Darwin admitted that it was impossible to explain the origin of the eye by natural selection.

Myth 7. The brain is more insightful and productive in the alpha state.

Myth 8. Scientists have proved that the brain is really two brains and each has its own domain: the left hemisphere is the seat of our logical, analytical, scientific self and our right hemisphere is the seat of our intuitive, creative, artistic, emotional self.

Myth 9. Man only uses 10% of his brain. (Women use 25% of their brain [lol, I just made that up])

Myth 10.You can raise your I.Q., SAT score, and dissolve brain tumors by listening to Mozart.

Myth 16. We usually unconsciously repress traumatic experiences.

Myth 17. The near-death experience is typically pleasant and blissful, involving a feeling of moving through a tunnel into a bright light.

Myth 18. An egg will balance on its end. Bad Astronomy: Only on the day of the Vernal (spring) Equinox, can you stand a raw egg on its end. Good astronomy: If you can stand a raw egg on end, it has nothing to do with the Equinox.

Myth 19. The Coriolis force influences which direction water spirals down a drain, and on either side of the equator water going down a drain will rotate differently.

Myth 20. Physicists do not know how it is possible for the common housefly to fly.

Does man have a spirit?

Myth 77. Freud published numerous reports documenting that his patients had been fantasizing sexual abuse.

Myth 78. One in five children is approached by an online sexual predator. (This is a distortion of a survey result that found that 19 percent of young Internet users received an unwanted sexual solicitation in the past year. Only 3% reported being solicited on the Internet and none of these led to an actual assault. Also, Ben Radford noted that in this survey "A 'sexual solicitation' is defined as a 'request to engage in sexual activities or sexual talk or give personal sexual information that was unwanted....'" )
