Taliban Stops CIA Opium Trade in Afghanistan
BBC News (World)@BBCWorld·“Afghanistan will not be a country of cultivation of opium anymore” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid says the country will need “international help” but will see opium production reduced to “zero again” Latest: http://bbc.in/3CULmln
Comment: Evidently Afghanistans are fed up with Bush Crime Family running their opium trade outta their country.
Prior to the American invasion in 2001, opium cultivation and the drug trade in Afghanistan was non-existent. The drug trade only ramped up under the American occupation with the CIA and other corrupt entities connected to it raking in huge profits from the business. Throughout the country, the United States military was guarding poppy crops for drug traffickers.
It was a totally corrupt enterprise. They would selectively destroy the crops of people who were not directly connected to the occupiers so a select few people could profit.
Needless to say, most Americans did not like the fact that the American military was being used to help sell drugs. The Taliban certainly did not approve of this either which is why they are making moves to eliminate it.
Obviously, heroin and drugs are incompatible with Sharia law so it makes sense that this would be one of the first things they would do. It is also one less revenue stream for the CIA which in of itself is a huge positive.
Comment: Sharia law involves stoning people to death and beheadings….not good!
