NATO: Cold War to Needle War

Posted by msrb on February 28, 2010

90% of the world’s heroin originates in Afghanistan

NATO provides heroin production immunity to appease Afghan opium farmers!

Soviet Union has long gone, but NATO,  its old foe, is still here, operating illegally, waging a different war against the Russians:  The Needle War!

While NATO countries stockpiles of nuclear weapons remain almost entirely intact, NATO’s weapon of choice against Russia has now changed from plutonium to heroin.

About five million Russians are drug addicts, at least half of whom are addicted to heroin, according to reports, and nearly all of the drug supply comes from Afghanistan.

And now the head of Russia’s federal drug control agency has accused NATO for allowing the heroin production in Afghanistan to continue unhindered.

Victor Ivanov says heroin kills more than 30,000 people in Russia every year, and nearly all of the deadly drug comes from Afghanistan, BBC reported.

“He blamed the Obama administration for ending a military drive to destroy opium poppy crops in Afghan fields.” The report said.

What is the US excuse for allowing farmers to produce opium, which is readily processed into heroin?

Obama administration says destroying poppy crops was alienating farmers, driving them to support the Taliban.

But wait a moment, which Taliban are these Taliban?

The October 2001 invasion of Afghanistan restored the “Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry (from 6% of world market share in 2001 to currently over 90% according to the UNODC World Drug Report 2007),” says Gideon Polya.

How could this be?

Mr Ivanov says poppy fields guarantee immunity for drug producers.

His statement makes perfect sense because the drug producers  are the only ones who would buy the opium from Afghan farmers. If the heroin producers are driven out of business, the farmers couldn’t sell their opium. If the heroin producers couldn’t sell their deadly product, they wouldn’t be able to buy more opium. And if Obama administration is to be believed, they would turn their support to the Taliban. Heroin production in Afghanistan is therefore effectively protected and guaranteed by NATO.

Russian authorities say as a result of the heroin production immunity in Afghanistan a tsunami of cheap heroin has hit Russia and Central Asia.

Mr Ivanov asserts that the heroin production in Afghanistan has now developed to a “global destabilizing factor,” especially for Russia.

Obama’s Credibility

Posted by terres on November 12, 2008

Obama’s ‘street cred’ is way down in the negative territory, before he even starts the job!

Let’s stop beating about the Bush, AND have him indicted!

Obama’s ‘street cred’ is way down in the negative territory, in spite of being elected as the next US President. Some writers have gone as far as insulting the President-elect by calling him a shabbes goy because of his appointment of Rahm Israel Emanuel and other ‘Likudnik hawks,’ and his pledge of unconditional allegiance to Israel in a speech at the AIPAC conference during his ‘one-horse’ presidential election race.

There’s no easy way to wash off the stigma, if at all. However, the President-elect might find it hard to carry any degree of public trust during his term. And in a fast-changing world there are no guarantees. There’s always the possibility that he may not even finish his presidential term.

Could Obama buy some credibility?

Perhaps. Ironically Barack Obama may be able to earn some credibility by doing nothing! That is by doing nothing to stop the war criminal George Bush, Dick Cheney and the rest of their gang being prosecuted for waging wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq and for committing the crime of genocide and crimes against humanity in the two countries.

And that includes holding back the presidential pardon for those war criminals.

The Obama Test

Here’s a test of Obama presidency, or the “Obama ‘Hope and Change’ Test.”

1. If within the first few months of Mr Obama’s term as President, Bush, Cheney and their gang have been successfully indicted for their war crimes,

AND

2. If by then President Obama does nothing to block the justice, including granting presidential pardons to the said war criminals,

Then, and only then, can citizens be assured that there is still some hope [sic] that the system could undergo a positive change!

Call Bush the ‘sacrificial lamb,’ if you like, but he must not be granted a presidential pardon!
