- November 3rd, 9:41
November 3, 2010 – Khodorkovsky may say what he wants, but many wrote years ago about the real story on for instance Khodorkovsky’s Yukos oil snatch. About the – at that time – president Putin, and how all the Yukos shares also went to the Rothschilds. In short: what “The Big Game” was all about.
In a December 17th, 2004 item I quoted: “Yukos, this $40 billion giant, was bought for about $300 million. Thus looting the entire Russian economy for the benefit of a handful of Israeli citizens living in Russia.”* And Moscow’s airport plus all the Aeroflot air planes where important to the illegal but international weapons and drug transports too. Putin stopped this gang: the profits were now for him, his cronies, and some of it for the Russians.
And you remember what Khodorkovsky did? He and his gang were working for the Rothschilds:
“Arrested oil tycoon passed shares to banker.”
LONDON (Agence France-Presse) – Sunday, November 2, 2003 – Control of Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s shares in the Russian oil giant Yukos have passed to renowned banker Jacob Rothschild, under a deal they concluded prior to Mr. Khodorkovsky’s arrest, the Sunday Times reported.
Voting rights to the shares passed to Mr. Rothschild, 67, under a “previously unknown arrangement” designed to take effect in the event that Mr. Khodorkovsky could no longer “act as a beneficiary” of the shares, it said.
Mr. Khodorkovsky, 40, whom Russian authorities arrested at gunpoint and jailed pending further investigation last week, was said by the Sunday Times to have made the arrangement with Mr. Rothschild when he realized he was facing arrest.
Mr. Rothschild now controls the voting rights on a stake in Yukos worth almost $13.5 billion, the newspaper said in a dispatch from Moscow.” – [end quote]*
Now an arrogant Khodorkovsky implied that all Russians have a stake in his trial, as the Washington Post – like all the other criminal cartel’s war propaganda outlets – writes:
“Jailed oil executive says all of Russia has a stake in latest trial.”
MOSCOW – November 3, 2010 – Freedom was so near for Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the once fabulously wealthy oil executive who was sent off to Siberia five years ago for tax evasion, although his real offense, his supporters say, was politically opposing Vladimir Putin.” – [end quote, rest via the link below the article]*
He was not ‘opposing’ Putin: the russian president and many more wanted Khodorkovsky and his oligarchs to stop the looting. And it still stands what I wrote:
ROTHSCHILD’S BIS, THE CIA, SOROS & THE US DRUGS TRADE
It’s a whole other part of “The Matrix” in which most people live. People in general don’t know – or don’t want to know – that they actually are slaves in a huge global and utterly criminal corporation. Bundled together in multinational ‘departments’ for finances, world trade, drugs, weapons, rendition, and the usual killings of those standing in the way of bigger profits.
For the Zionist bankers – and other humanely and brain dead collaborators – the only thing which counts are power and profit.
All others; like race, religion, the color of one’s skin, politics or whatever, are only distractions. Tools to make people subservient. The goal is clear for those who are above all laws: the world’s hegemony.
The biggest part are the finances, which – as usual through the ages – is fully taken care of by Rothschild’s usury empire. Now concentrated in all so called ‘central banks’ which are on the ‘World Board’ of the advocated One World Bank, the BIS, Rothschild’s ‘Bank for International Settlements’ in Basel, Switzerland. The apex of financial power, as many now start describing it.
Rothschild’s ‘Bank for International Settlements’ is our global ‘Department of Finances,’ and the unbridled monetary monster we’re confronted with. A monster that has ridden us for a very long time, without most of us knowing and understanding it. Apparently this has been going on for ages, and a majority of humanity must be seen as victims of this usury system. – Url.: http://tinyurl.com/36l96z6
Take this example for instance: if one compares the cost on the street of one liter of oil and one kilo of heroine, one understands why, as the writer said; international financiers are under the pretext of ‘bringing democracy’ etc. Making Afghanistan ‘safe’ for the global heroine market, of which the financiers now have around 95% in their dirty paws.*
US MEDIA & THE PERPETUAL FLIP-FLOPPING ON DRUG-RELATED STORIES
Source: Boiling Frog web site – Sunday, 13. December 2009 – When I read Mizgin’s recent great post about Richard Armitage and his involvement in the Golden Triangle, I rolled my eyes. “Some Daily Kos reader out there,” I thought, “is, at this very moment, shouting ‘conspiracy theory’ at their computer.” The “conspiracy theory” accusation comes up any time a journalist or a whistleblower points out that U.S. officials and agencies have been complicit in the global drug trade. In fact, it has been an effective tool to try and silence truth tellers at least since Alfred McCoy was viciously attacked for writing the Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia. Never mind the fact that allegations against the Central Intelligence Agency or the State Department have often been vindicated with the passage of time. It just can’t be true that America would support drug lords, can it?
Unfortunately, the answer to that question is a resounding YES, IT CAN. American agencies, including the C.I.A. and the State Department, have given aid and comfort to international drug lords in the past and apparently continue to do so. Just read what the New York Times reported on October 28th about Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai and a known drug dealer, being on the C.I.A. payroll: The C.I.A.’s practices also suggest that the United States is not doing everything in its power [Emphasis Added] to stamp out the lucrative Afghan drug trade, a major source of revenue for the Taliban.
Gee, do ya think? Any enterprising individual of reasonable intelligence, using a minimum of Google research skills, could have determined that the drug trade out of Afghanistan has skyrocketed since late 2001, shortly after the U.S. removed the Taliban from power and installed Hamid Karzai as its puppet. If the Times had been a little bit bolder, they might have written something like this:
The C.I.A is complicit in the illegal drug trade in Afghanistan, but this should surprise no one, as a peek at the historical record demonstrates drug complicity has become routine. Just look at these facts:
ASIA AND THE DRUG TRADE
1950s, Southeast Asia: The C.I.A. supports the Kuomanting (KMT) drug running in Burma.
1960s-1970s, Vietnam-Laos: Richard Armitage, Ted Shackley and Thomas Clines finance a portion of the Phoenix Program in Vietnam through the Southeast Asian heroin trade.
1980s, Southwest Asia: The C.I.A. supports Afghan rebels, many of whom, along with the Pakistani ISI, are known to be deeply involved in opium and heroin trade.
1980s, Latin America: The U.S. backs Contras, even though cocaine turns out to be a key source of their funding, and Panama dictator Manuel Noriega, also tied to the drug trade. Also in this time period, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Agent Michael Levine claims Attorney General Edwin Meese blew the cover of a DEA team investigating drug corruption at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
1990s, Burma: DEA Agent Richard Horn, whose case was recently settled with the Justice Department, is spied on by the State Department and C.I.A., apparently because Horn was being too aggressive in trying to shut down the opium trade from Burma.
1996-2002: Sibel Edmonds testifies that criminal elements in Turkey tied to the drug trade, with knowledge and acquiescence of the State Department, bring drugs into the U.S. and Europe.
NO STORIES IN THE MEDIA
None of these past Agency misdeeds were mentioned by the Times to give its story context. The reason for these omissions is obvious: the Times or someone in the American government had an axe to grind either with the C.I.A. or the Karzai government itself, and the story was only trotted out because it was convenient for the moment. A few months from now, if some really enterprising journalists accuse the U.S. government of aiding the Afghan opium trade, the major newspapers will likely ignore them, or, worse, accuse them of being conspiracy mongers.
This is exactly how our trusted mainstream press has treated C.I.A. drug stories in the past: When it is convenient to promote one of their pet agendas, the establishment media admit the shocking facts. Then, when it is no longer serving its purposes, the same press turns around and marginalizes anyone repeating the same. Take the example of Oliver North, Gary Webb, and the Washington Post.
According to a 1998 book Whiteout by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair, in order to torpedo Oliver North’s 1994 Virginia Senate candidacy, the Post published a hard-hitting article on October 22, 1994, entitled “North Didn’t Relay Drug Tips”. The gist of the story (written by Lorraine Adams) was that while he was running the illegal Contra War from his post on the National Security Council, North failed to forward to the Drug Enforcement Agency the evidence that several members of the FDN (the main Contra organization) were involved in the cocaine business.
North had claimed to have “turned over to the DEA all evidence of Contra drug running” during his Congressional testimony. The Post found the story useful at the time, given the newspaper’s opposition to North’s candidacy.
However, two years later, when journalist Gary Webb and the San Jose Mercury News tied the Contras to a large crack cocaine ring in Los Angeles, the Post apparently forgot its own reporting, and (along with the New York Times and Los Angeles Times) ripped Webb’s career apart. Cockburn and St. Clair wrote:
Friday, October 4  the Washington Post went to town on Webb and on the Mercury News. The onslaught carried no less than 5,000 words in five articles. The front page featured a lead article by Roberto Suro and Walter Pincus, headlined, “CIA and Crack: Evidence Is Lacking of Contra-Tied Plot.”
The rest is history. Webb was destroyed, which ultimately led to his suicide years later. In the meantime, the U.S. Congress did nothing, which is something it is accustomed to doing in cases involving accusations of Executive Branch malfeasance. Two years after Webb’s Dark Alliance series, the C.I.A. Inspector General actually released a report admitting aspects Contra drug running, but this report was barely covered by the same newspapers that had eviscerated the story in the first place.
The press gets away with their perpetual flip-flopping on drug-related issues for a simple reason: The “C.I.A. drug trade complicity” tale is not the kind of story the average citizen wants to believe. This topic is a taboo because the public has been trained to have a visceral reaction to drugs. Ever since propaganda films like Reefer Madness were released at the beginning of the 20th Century, drug dealers have been made out to be public enemy number one and are hated perhaps even more than terrorists. Recreational drugs are often portrayed as a weapon of mass destruction on America’s youth. It just can’t be possible that our trusted officials — like Orrin Hatch, to cite one example, — would rail against drugs, claiming they endanger our children on the one hand, while moving in Congress to quash any attempt to hold federal agencies accountable for working with the pimps and pushers on the other.
Wake up, America. Our government’s acquiescence in the global drug trade is not just possible; it is an important part of our nation’s post-World War II history. Obama’s surge in Afghanistan is doomed to failure, in part because our intelligence agencies are fostering the same poppy trade that helps finance our enemies, the Taliban. We know it is doomed because all of the other C.I.A. drug operations have ended in similar catastrophes. Of course, the one “success” the U.S. government could point to, if it were willing to admit the facts of its drug alliances, is the defeat of the Soviet Army in Afghanistan. However, given what happened over a decade later on September 11, 2001, that “success” looks like an awful “short-sightedness” and “long-term failure”.
It is sad to think how many of our young men and women are dying, or are permanently scarred, mentally or physically, in the false belief that they are engaged in some higher moral battle to bring democracy and an end to the heroin trade in Afghanistan. Until the public realizes the truth about the dark history of U.S. intelligence agencies and drugs, such illusions about the morality of America’s endless wars will continue.” – [ end article] – Source: Boiling Frog web site – Url.: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2009/12/13/making-afghanistan-safe-for-heroin/
FACTS SUGGEST MOTIVATION FOR 9/11 FAR MORE COMPLICATED THAN ANYONE COULD IMAGINE
The story was written by William Cormier and published on January 28, 2009: “I have not published a lot of information in regard the horrific attacks that occurred on September 11th, 2001. In one of my own articles I opined that 911 appeared to be a robbery – and the “tell” for me wasn’t the collapse of the Twin Towers, but the “free fall” of Building # 7; nothing in evidence or even physics could explain why this building collapsed except a pre-planned demolition, and based on everything I could read, the motivation(s) for the 911 attacks seemed to transcend the many “conspiracy theorists” who believed that it was a “False-Flag Attack” primarily conducted to create a new “Pearl Harbor” and provide the impetus for attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq. Apparently, they only revealed the tip of the iceberg. – Link to full text via Url below.
This report was brought to my attention by a subscriber to OpEd News, who stated that once I began reading the report, I wouldn’t be able to put it down – and the revelations contained therein provide to the public a well-documented theory of “why” 911 happened, and for me, it was a shock to discover just how corrupt our government really is – and it certainly explains why relations with Russia have soured far beyond what most of us are led to believe. This report is extremely hard to copy, although you can download it and then use OCR to copy or print it if you like.

Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001
By E.P. Heidner, 28 June, 2008
On September 11, 2001 the definition of National Security changed for most U.S. citizens. For an entire postwar generation, “National Security” meant protection from nuclear attack. On that day, Americans redefined that threat. On September 11, 2001 three hijacked airliners hit three separate buildings with such precision and skill that many observers believe those flights were controlled by something other than the poorly trained hijackers in the cockpits. – [It was an inside job. – HR]
This report contends that not only were the buildings targets, but that specific offices within each building were the designated targets. These offices unknowingly held information which if exposed, subsequently would expose a national security secret of unimaginable magnitude. Protecting that secret was the motivation for the September l1 attacks. This report is about that national security secret: its origins and impact. The intent of the report is to provide a context for understanding the events of September 11th rather than to define exactly what happened that day.
Initially, it is difficult to see a pattern to the destruction of September l1 other than the total destruction of the World Trade Center, a segment of the Pentagon, four commercial aircraft and the loss of 2,993 lives. However, if the perceived objective of the attack is re-defined from its commonly suggested ‘symbolic’ designation as either ‘a terrorist attack’ or a ‘new Pearl Harbor,’ and one begins by looking at it as purely a crime with specific objectives (as opposed to a political action), there is a compelling logic to the pattern of destruction.
THE 9/11 COVER UP
This article provides research into the early claims by Dick Eastman, Tom Flocco, V.K. Durham and Karl Schwarz that the September l1 attacks were meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th1 After six years of research, this report presents corroborating evidence which supports their claims, and proposes a new rationale for the September 11th attacks. In doing so, many of the anomalies — or inconvenient facts surrounding this event – take on a meaning that is consistent with the claims of Eastman et al. The hypothesis of this report is: the attacks of September l were intended to cover-up the clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September 1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which ‘unknown’ western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with a focus on oil and gas. The attacks of September ll also served to derail multiple Federal investigations away from crimes associated with the 1991 covert operation. In doing so, the attacks were justified under the cardinal rule of intelligence: “protect your resources”2 and consistent with a modus operandi of sacrificing lives for a greater cause.
The case for detailed targeting of the attacks begins with analysis of the attack on the Pentagon. After one concludes that the targeting of the ONI office in the Pentagon was not random — and that information is presented later3 — one then must ask: is it possible that the planes that hit the World Trade Center, and the bombs reported by various witnesses to have been set off inside the buildings 1, 6 and 7 and the basement of the Towers, were deliberately located to support the execution of a crime of mind-boggling proportions? In considering that question, a pattern emerges. For the crimes alleged by Eastman, Flocco, Durham and Schwarz to be successful, the vault in the basement of the World Trade Center, and its contents – less than a billion in gold, but hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities – had to be destroyed.
A critical mass of brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers had to be eliminated to create chaos in the government securities market. A situation needed to be created wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could be electronically “cleared” without anyone asking questions- which happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its “emergency powers.” that very afternoon.4 The ongoing Federal investigations into the crimes funded by those securities needed to be ended or disrupted by destroying evidence in Buildings 6, 7 and 1 . Finally, one has to understand and demonstrate the inconceivable: that $240 billion in covert, and possibly illegal government funding could have been and were created in September of 1991.
Filling in the last piece of the puzzle requires understanding 50 years of history of key financial organizations in the United States, understanding how U.S. Intelligence became a key source of their off-balance sheet accounts, and why this was sanctioned by every President since Truman.6 With that, a pattern of motivation is defined which allows government leaders and intelligence operatives to ‘rationalize’ a decision to cause the death 3,000 citizens.

It has taken me well over a week to digest this report, following-up on the footnotes and substantiation, and after reading the report in its entirety, I believe that this is possibly one of the largest cover-ups in US and/or world history – and it certainly deserves to be widely read and distributed instead of being lost to obscurity. If you truly want to understand the motivation(s) behind the 911 attacks, this is a must read report – and contains information that will shock the conscience of anyone that takes the time to read the entire report. It also tends to substantiate my belief that this financial collapse was planned – and those that were conspirators in this matter should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.” – William Cormier – Author’s Website Url.: http://justanothercoverup.com/

DRUG MONEY SAVED BANKS IN GLOBAL CRISIS, CLAIMS UN ADVISOR
Drugs and crime chief says $352bn in criminal proceeds was effectively laundered by financial institutions
The Observer (UK) Sunday 13 December 2009 – Drugs money worth billions of dollars kept the financial system afloat at the height of the global crisis, the United Nations’ drugs and crime tsar has told the Observer.
Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were “the only liquid investment capital” available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year. He said that a majority of the $352bn (£216bn) of drugs profits was absorbed into the economic system as a result.
This will raise questions about crime’s influence on the economic system at times of crisis. It will also prompt further examination of the banking sector as world leaders, including Barack Obama and Gordon Brown, call for new International Monetary Fund regulations. Speaking from his office in Vienna, Costa said evidence that illegal money was being absorbed into the financial system was first drawn to his attention by intelligence agencies and prosecutors around 18 months ago. “In many instances, the money from drugs was the only liquid investment capital. In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system’s main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor,” he said.
Some of the evidence put before his office indicated that gang money was used to save some banks from collapse when lending seized up, he said. “Inter-bank loans were funded by money that originated from the drugs trade and other illegal activities… There were signs that some banks were rescued that way.” Costa declined to identify countries or banks that may have received any drugs money, saying that would be inappropriate because his office is supposed to address the problem, not apportion blame. But he said the money is now a part of the official system and had been effectively laundered.
“That was the moment [last year] when the system was basically paralysed because of the unwillingness of banks to lend money to one another. The progressive liquidisation to the system and the progressive improvement by some banks of their share values [has meant that] the problem [of illegal money] has become much less serious than it was,” he said.
The IMF estimated that large US and European banks lost more than $1tn on toxic assets and from bad loans from January 2007 to September 2009 and more than 200 mortgage lenders went bankrupt. Many major institutions either failed, were acquired under duress, or were subject to government takeover.
Gangs are now believed to make most of their profits from the drugs trade and are estimated to be worth £352bn, the UN says. They have traditionally kept proceeds in cash or moved it offshore to hide it from the authorities. It is understood that evidence that drug money has flowed into banks came from officials in Britain, Switzerland, Italy and the US.
British bankers would want to see any evidence that Costa has to back his claims. A British Bankers’ Association spokesman said: “We have not been party to any regulatory dialogue that would support a theory of this kind. There was clearly a lack of liquidity in the system and to a large degree this was filled by the intervention of central banks.” – [end story] – Source; The Observer (UK) – Url.: http://www.guardian.co.uk/global/2009/dec/13/drug-money-banks-saved-un-cfief-claims
DRUGS: GEORGE BUSH THE 1st AND GARY WEBB There was a comment concerning Gary Webb by moniker ‘zaknick’: “Voice From the Audience: You talked about George Bush pardoning people. Given George Bush’s history with the CIA, do you know when he first knew about this, and what he knew?
Gary Webb: Well, I didn’t at the time I wrote the book, I do now. The question was, when did George Bush first know about this? The CIA, in its latest report, said that they had prepared a detailed briefing for the vice president — I think it was 1985? — on all these allegations of contra drug trafficking and delivered it to him personally. So, it’s hard for George to say he was out of the loop on this one.
I’ll tell you another thing, one of the most amazing things I found in the National Archives was a report that had been written by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tampa — I believe it was 1987. They had just busted a Colombian drug trafficker named Allen Rudd, and they were using him as a cooperating witness. Rudd agreed to go undercover and set up other drug traffickers, and they were debriefing him.
Now, let me set the stage for you. When you are being debriefed by the federal government for use as an informant, you’re not going to go in there and tell them crazy-sounding stories, because they’re not going to believe you, they’re going to slap you in jail, right? What Rudd told them was, that he was involved in a meeting with Pablo Escobar, who was then the head of the Medellín cartel. They were working out arrangements to set up cocaine shipments into South Florida. He said Escobar started ranting and raving about that damned George Bush, and now he’s got that South Florida Drug Task Force set up which has really been making things difficult, and the man’s a traitor. And he used to deal with us, but now he wants to be president and thinks that he’s double-crossing us. And Rudd said, well, what are you talking about? And Escobar said, we made a deal with that guy, that we were going to ship weapons to the contras, they were in there flying weapons down to Columbia, we were unloading weapons, we were getting them to the contras, and the deal was, we were supposed to get our stuff to the United States without any problems. And that was the deal that we made. And now he double-crossed us.
So the U.S. Attorney heard this, and he wrote this panicky memo to Washington saying, you know, this man has been very reliable so far, everything he’s told us has checked out, and now he’s saying that the Vice President of the United States is involved with drug traffickers. We might want to check this out. And it went all the way up — the funny thing about government documents is, whenever it passes over somebody’s desk, they have to initial it. And this thing was like a ladder, it went all the way up and all the way up, and it got up to the head of the Criminal Division at the Justice Department, and he looked at it and said, looks like a job for Lawrence Walsh! And so he sent it over to Walsh, the Iran-contra prosecutor, and he said, here, you take it, you deal with this. And Walsh’s office — I interviewed Walsh, and he said, we didn’t have the authority to deal with that. We were looking at Ollie North.
So I said, did anybody investigate this? And the answer was, “no.” And that thing sat in the National Archives for ten years, nobody ever looked at it.” – [end quote] – Source: Boiling Frog web site – Url.: http://tinyurl.com/yegk6vq

THE ROBBING OF RUSSIA: YUKOS SHARES, ‘LORD’ JACOB ROTHSCHILD, THE CIA AND SOROS
Quote: “According to a Nov. 3, 2004 Agence France Presse story, Khodorkovsky made a deal with Jacob Rothschild that control of the YUKOS giant would pass to Rothschild in the event of Khodorkovsky’s arrest. However, the Russian government froze all YUKOS assets for the time being. And Putin and his people than started to wrestle also the energy sector out of the robber’s hands.
The Open Russia Foundation, which is supposed to belong to CIA ‘old hand’ and jewish billionaire George Soros – [ http://tinyurl.com/3a5dklt ] – according to Vialls, ”is completely controlled by Rothschild.

THE ‘LOTUS EATER’: THE ADMINISTRATION REPORTEDLY TURNED DOWN THE IDEA
According to high-level intelligence sources, the plan to end opium production inside Afghanistan was nixed by the CIA. The reason given was quite simple. Apparently, there are several large factions inside Afghanistan and Pakistan, friendly to the U.S., that directly depend on funding from opium. These factions threatened to overthrow the Afghan and Pakistani governments if they were not allowed to continue trafficking heroin and opium.
The specter of a nuclear-armed Pakistan being run by radical opium gangs put the Lotus Eater plan on hold. The CIA reportedly noted that if Lotus Eater was released into the poppy fields that several Southeast and Southwest Asian governments would fall. The consequences of a Lotus Eater attack directly effected corrupt elements inside the Russian and Chinese armies as well as the intelligence service inside Pakistan. The disruption of trade could even start a world war in Asia.
It is here that our dark tale ends. The opium and heroin trade continue to flourish. The poppy fields continue to fuel the bank accounts of radical terrorists and addict millions in its wake.
The most powerful nation on earth is a helpless giant, unable to stop the devastating trade even when armed with the ultimate weapon.
WE HAVE BECOME THE LOTUS EATERS

Big Pharma however, this very profitable and huge, criminal pharmaceutical industry for the sick, has the ‘solution’ for what also the United Nations calls a ‘problem’ and which they propagandize now: they’ll buy all the opium in Afghanistan, which has 93% of the world market, and turn it into – according to them – ‘very much needed’ anesthetics…
As I said: Just think: what’s the price of a liter of oil, and what’s the street value of a kilo of heroine?
That’s the idea among the criminals at the top of ‘Big Pharma’ to ‘legalise’ the dope by buying as much as is possible of the harvest from the poppie farmers. The ‘cover up’? The as usual false explanation given is this: “Because there is a global shortage of anesthetics which normally are used for narcosis while enabling major surgical and other operations. We help the poor farmers too by doing so.”
YOU SEE? BIG PHARMA BUYS ALL THE OPIUM C.Q. HEROIN ET VOILÁ: IT CAN BE DISTRIBUTED!
We better remember that all those fakes: the ‘War on Terror’, the ‘War on Drugs’, the ‘War on This or That’: those fake actions are only murder sprees meant to get rid of the competition.
Kill and stop the other drug and warlords who do not belong to – or refuse to comply – with the hegemony of the criminal multinationals global war and drugs cartel. And the only ones who profit are the drug lords…
As said before: it’s a long haul, but we’ll get the war criminals in the end. The court cases because of their war criminality go on: to stop the genocides by the US/UK/Israeli and NATO war machine.
And at the same time stop the CIA and other ‘war lords’ drugs producing and smuggling too.
Murder always is murder.
Whoever does it.
