Lavrov: No force on earth can compete with NATO and US’ drug trafficking business in Afghanistan

“In country after country, from Mexico and Honduras to Panama and Peru, the CIA helped set up or consolidate intelligence agencies that became forces of repression, and whose intelligence connections to other countries greased the way for illicit drug shipments.”

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has done it again. He has recently grabbed the New World Order establishment by the horn and cut them to pieces with a chainsaw when he said that the establishment has done covert and illegal operations in places like Afghanistan. Lavrov did not mince words:

The US operation against the Taliban and al-Qaeda was supported by all countries. It’s another matter that after receiving the international approval, the United States and its NATO allies, which took over in Afghanistan, started acting rather inconsistently, to put it mildly.

“During their operation in Afghanistan, the terrorist threat has not been rooted out, while the drug threat has increased many times over. The drug industry prospered. There is factual evidence that some of the NATO contingents in Afghanistan turned a blind eye to the illegal drug trafficking, even if they were not directly involved in these criminal schemes.

“Afghanistan is a separate case, although the current developments there, which are a result of the NATO operation’s failure, despite the carte blanche the bloc received from the international community, can be considered an unintended cause of managed chaos. In Iraq, Syria and Libya, this chaos was created intentionally.”

Lavrov is right in line with the scholarly world. Peter Dale Scott of the University of California writes:

“In country after country, from Mexico and Honduras to Panama and Peru, the CIA helped set up or consolidate intelligence agencies that became forces of repression, and whose intelligence connections to other countries greased the way for illicit drug shipments.”[1]

Noted historian Alfred W. McCoy of the University of Wisconsin has reported the same thing.[2] McCoy began to work on this issue while he was a Ph.D. candidate in Southeast Asian history at Yale back in 1972. He accused American officials “of condoning and even cooperating with corrupt elements in Southeast Asia’s illegal drug trade out of political and military considerations.” McCoy’s

“major charges was that South Vietnam’s President Nguyễn Văn Thiệu, Vice President Nguyễn Cao Kỳ, and Prime Minister Trần Thiện Khiêm led a narcotics ring with ties to the Corsican mafia, the Trafficante crime family in Florida, and other high level military officials in South Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Those implicated by McCoy included Laotian Generals Ouane Rattikone and Vang Pao and South Vietnamese Generals Đăng Văn Quang and Ngô Dzu.”

McCoy produced enough evidence which indicated that the CIA used “tribal mercenaries” in places like Laos in order to maintain their criminal and drug trafficking business.

In short, Lavrov was essentially deconstructing the CIA when he said that they have been spreading corruption throughout the world for decades. Whenever they take a break from spreading opium, they start perpetuating wars and creating false flags in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now in Syria.

The CIA is certainly not happy about what Lavrov has said. This is one reason why they hate Russia and all that it represents.

    Lavrov, a true diplomat. I wonder what Mullah Omar(RIP) would have said.

    Jonas: juncture after juncture every step doesn’t head to a point of rupture and the World becomes the Jewish object of forfeiture. In due time, soy culture would be replace hemp culture and further on, by poppy culture. The sliding road ending in total gentile mutation into senseless beings and lessening numbers. Unyieldingly denied, but solicitously applied, “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” also includes a generous opiate injection, when gentiles resist or delay the surrendering to planned designs and schedules. What’s disgusting to see is to watch US high ranking officers, for the sake of promotion and sweet retirements, heeding to the whims of Israel at any price, doping the entire World if necessary, multiplying obliteration of entire nations, tearing appart civilians, and leaving own soldiers with limbs, without homes, jobs and full of mental diseases crying on the shoulder of heroin. It seems that West Point, Annapolis or Colorado training builds the strong character that’s needed to blurr the sense of Good and Evil..

    There is one force that can compete with NATO and the US in drug trafficking. It’s Big Pharma with all its lethal painkillers.The US still gets a cut even from them. Drugs and arms either legal or illegal are the lynch pins supporting the global criminals and politicians and their NWO. Take away the drugs and arms and everything comes to a screeching halt.

    As always Jonas is the only journalist who has the guts to tell the truth. May the Good Lord protect him.

    It would be nice if I could watch the video. It seems like it would be very informative. Too bad every time I make a controversial comment on this site, my device starts acting as if it’s having a stroke. It becomes all sluggish and I can’t type a sentence without a problem occurring with the page, and then it has to be reloaded. It’s very annoying when it takes an hour to watch a 20 minute video. Under regular circumstances, I can watch a 6 hour video without any buffering. WTF gives?? This type of $h!t sometimes makes me wish I was a hacker, so I could fight fire with fire, by determining what or who is doing this and then infect them with some serious malware.

      I have noted similar video tendencies, and found that it depends on the browser. So one browser will skip frames, making motion very jerky. For example the lip motion of someone who speaks will look like (be notable as) a series of still images. Then I activate another browser, and the jerkiness is gone. My main browser often refuses to open certain sites, or lets me wait for several minutes. Then I switch to another browser and the http connection is prompt and immediate. I have the impression that the browser I did not upgrade is the best, although I often see messages recommending to upgrade «for security reasons». There are many different browsers available for download out there, and they are not all the same, but differ in their properties.

      The ads on this site are terrible, it is loading so much data you can scroll the pages on this site, to make matters worse when trying to play the videos an Ad videos start playing. I closed my browser and 134 new tracking cookies were loaded. VT please sort this out, its almost not workable

      Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    They are THE international drug lords, selling heroin and crack cocaine to pay for their mercenary terrorist armies who create chaos. Under the guise of fighting terrorists who are actually on their payroll, this orchestrated chaos ends up serving as justification for their (CIA/NATO) massive budgets and the continuing theft of public funds.

    • Amelius  March 27, 2017 at 1:20 pm

      Once again, Russia tells the truth. There is too much information available in the public record to provide an objective argument. Thank you for sharing this, Jonas.

    It is difficult to find polite adjectives to describe the disgusting, criminal, reprehensible, secret CIA . It must be shut down ASAP. Shame on everyone who makes money working there; none of you could possess a conscience; all are criminals and whores too doing anything for the almighty dollar; you are a shameful disgrace to America. How can you sleep at night? How can you live with yourselves? Everything you do is against every principle of our Constitution. Shame on the whores in Congress for failing to shut it down immediately. In my carrier in physics I avoided working to aid any military or weapons field. It can be done.

    Yep. The glory days of NATO’s fire-at-will, enemize-whoever-to-kill are finally over. And thank God for that. Many many have yet to wake up from it.
