Afghan Heroin Production Up 61% in the Past Year Alone (Libertarian News)
Thursday February 16th, 2012
The Daily Mail reports:
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon admitted today heroin production in Afghanistan has risen 61 per cent in the past year despite billions of pounds being spent by Britain and others to crack down on the Taliban. I”m not sure why they are surprised by this. The entire point of invading Afghanistan was to turn the opium production back on because the major international banks require the black market reserve capital from the drug trade to keep their heads above water. In 2001, the Taliban had SUCCESSFULLY SHUT DOWN ALL OPIUM PRODUCTION IN AFGHANISTAN.
