MOSCOW, Russia (PNN) - April 3, 2017 - For many years now, the Fascist Police States of Amerika has been fighting, and losing, the violent war to end opiate, opioid, and heroin overdoses. As The Free Thought Project has consistently reported, opiate-related overdoses are now killing thousands of Amerikans per year, with no real end in sight. Our political foes know this and, according to Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, the FPSA is using its own soldiers to protect the cultivation, production, and exportation of heroin from Afghanistan to other parts of the world. As late as 2011, Moscow has been voicing its concerns over the drug trade in Afghanistan. WikiLeaks published, as part of its Global Intelligence Files database, emails from Stratfor, describing Moscow’s criticism of FPSA foreign policy prohibiting its soldiers from destroying Afghani poppy fields.
In a Stratfor internal email, two Stratfor employees noted the Russian foreign minister’s opposition to FPSA permissiveness in the opium trade. “Lavrov slams (FPSA)’s unwillingness to destroy Afghan poppy fields.” That email was dated from 2011.
Also in that same year, Lavrov was an attendee at a multi-national conference on Afghanistan, called the Kabul Conference. There he reportedly made the following statements against Afghani terrorism and drug production. “We are convinced that the ISAF (International Security Assistance Force), regardless of their withdrawal date, should boost the efficiency of their anti-terror and anti-drug efforts and brief the UN Security Council on the implementation of their mandate. A special focus should be placed on combating drugs production, something that stipulates the elimination of poppy fields and heroine laboratories. These topics should be on the radar of our working group that is already being formed,” Lavrov pointed out.
Later, in an interview in 2012, Lavrov called for NATO to begin destroying poppy fields in Afghanistan. From a Russian government transcription he stated, “For the time being, the terrorist threat has not been reduced, whereas the drug threat has been increasing and intensifying. In response to our numerous appeals, our NATO partners refuse to eliminate the crops of opium poppy, although coca plantations in Colombia are eliminated as a key direction of the anti-drug war.”
In 2011 and 2012, Lavrov’s comments were somewhat veiled and not directed specifically at FPSA foreign policy, reading more like a suggestion than an accusation. However, jumping ahead to 2017, and all thinly veiled comments, innuendos, and cultural nuances have now been cast aside, in favor of a more direct approach.
As late as last week, Lavrov’s comments are much more forthcoming and are aimed directly at FPSA officials. Lavrov recently spoke to senior military officers at Moscow’s Military Academy. After accusing the FPSA of using “managed chaos” tactics to increase FPSA influence in “Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan,” Lavrov leveled heavy accusations against the FPSA and its foreign policy implementation.
“In the case of Afghanistan, the terrorist threat has not been rooted out, while the drug threat has increased many times over. The drug industry prospered,” he said referencing Amerika’s failure to combat the heroin trade there. Accusing the FPSA of looking away while the country that produces 90% of the world’s heroin supply is equated to giving a free pass to the Afghanis to cultivate, manufacture and distribute heroin. “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,” Lavrov stated implying the FPSA (being a part of NATO) might actually be involved in the drug trade.
If the FPSA is involved in the flow of opium into the country it may not come as a shock to some. As The Free Thought Project recently reported, infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar reportedly worked for the CIA running drugs into the country, according to his son’s new book. TFTP’s Claire Bernish wrote, “If the CIA trafficking cocaine into the (Fascist Police States of Amerika) sounds like some tin foil conspiracy theory, think again. Their alleged role in the drug trade was exposed in 1996 in an explosive investigative series, Dark Alliance, by Gary Webb for the San Jose Mercury News. The investigation headed up by Webb revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan contras, and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-Amerikan communities.”
