Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
In the memorable Five Families negotiation scene of The Godfather (1972), Detroit boss Joseph Zaluchi (Louis Guss) makes no secret of his scruples with respect the emerging illegal narcotics racket.
I also don’t believe in drugs. For years I paid my people extra so they wouldn’t do that kind of business. Somebody comes to them and says, “I have powders; if you put up three, four thousand dollar investment – we can make fifty thousand distributing.” So they can’t resist. I want to control it as a business, to keep it respectable. I don’t want it near schools – I don’t want it sold to children! That’s an infamia. In my city, we would keep the traffic in the dark people – the colored. They’re animals anyway, so let them lose their souls.
At one time, heroin addiction was more of a black problem than a white one. Notes The Economist:
The face of heroin use in America has changed utterly. Forty or fifty years ago heroin addicts were overwhelmingly male, disproportionately black, and very young (the average age of first use was 16). Most came from poor inner-city neighbourhoods. These days [. . .] More than half are women, and 90% are white. The drug has crept into the suburbs and the middle classes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cite research showing that, while in 2000 “non-Hispanic black persons aged 45–64 had the highest rate for drug-poisoning deaths involving heroin (2.0 per 100,000)”, by 2013 “non-Hispanic white persons aged 18–44 had the highest rate (7.0 per 100,000).”
The Economist would prefer to credit a glut of cheap Mexican-grown opium with the exclusive responsibility for the spike in American heroin abuse:
The low transport costs faced by Mexican traffickers, who need only drive from Sinaloa to the border, mean that their heroin is far cheaper than the Colombian or Asian sort. A gram of pure heroin in America now costs about $400, less than half the price, in real terms, that it cost in the 1980s. And whereas much of the heroin in the past was of the “black tar” variety, which is usually injected, there is a trend towards brown heroin, which lends itself better to snorting and smoking. That matters to novice heroin users, who may be skittish about needles.
A breakdown of drug use by states, however, shows heroin and opiate use clustered in the Northeast, particularly in Pennsylvania. According to information compiled by Jon Millward (“Busted: Analyzing America’s Most Recent Drug Hauls”), “Pennsylvania [. . .] had the most heroin busts of any state, with 134 of the most recent 1,000, more than California and New York combined, whose populations are 4.5 times larger than Pennsylvania’s. New Jersey ranked second for the most heroin seizures (101) and New York came in third (85) and all three states cluster geographically above Delaware.”
“The tragic overdose death of Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on February 2, [2014, in New York] brought renewed interest to the subject of cheap heroin on America’s streets,” writes American Free Press contributor Victor Thorn.
Across the country, heroin use is on the rise, despite the billions of dollars spent by United States law enforcement fighting it. Recently, southwestern Pennsylvania suffered 22 overdoses in little more than a week’s time from tainted heroin, and dozens of users were hospitalized in Camden, New Jersey due to a highly potent batch that was being sold on the streets of that city.
Another hotbed of heroin and opium use is Vermont. Vice’s Gina Tron, in an investigation of the state’s heroin epidemic, points out that
Vermont is the second whitest state in the US, actually, with 96.7 percent of the population being caucasian. Inevitably, a lot of the dealers who roll in from New York, Philadelphia, and elsewhere are black. Many people we interviewed for this article equated the influx of drugs with black and hispanic people moving into the state [. . .]
Vice also quotes a DEA spokesman who claims that “most of the heroin in the area is from South America and comes to the US through Mexico or Miami.”
Is this information, or any that comes from a “.gov” site, reliable? A 2011 report of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime relates the following:
The long Mexico-United States of America land border appears to be the main entry point. Mexican heroin is smuggled in cars, trucks and buses and may also be hidden on or in the body of the smuggler.
The Canadian heroin market, however, is dominated by Afghan heroin, with only a limited amount of heroin coming from Mexico. Based on previous seizure patterns, it is likely that around 78 per cent of the heroin abused in Canada is Afghan heroin trafficked from India, Pakistan and to a lesser extent from Africa.1
“Although seizures indicate that some Afghan heroin was trafficked into the United States of America,” the report also says, “the level of trafficking for 2009 remains unclear” because “seizure data from the United States of America in 2009 was insufficient to draw any solid conclusions.”2 Are readers to understand that a whopping 78% of Canadian junk originates in Afghanistan, while very little of this finds its way into the United States – even in areas bordering Canada?
The CDC indicates that, “From 2000 through 2013, the age-adjusted rate for drug-poisoning deaths involving heroin nearly quadrupled from 0.7 deaths per 100,000 in 2000 to 2.7 deaths per 100,000 in 2013” and adds that, “Most of the increase occurred after 2010.” This, it may or may not be relevant to note, was the period of Obama’s bloody Afghanistan troop surge.
“In a war full of failures,” writes Spencer Ackerman in The Guardian, “the US counternarcotics mission in Afghanistan stands out: opiate production has climbed steadily over recent years to reach record-high levels last year.
Yet there is a clear winner in the anti-drug effort – not the Afghan people, but the infamous mercenary company formerly known as Blackwater.
Statistics released on Tuesday reveal that the rebranded private security firm, known since 2011 as Academi, reaped over half a billion dollars from the futile Defense Department push to eradicate Afghan narcotics, some 32% of the $1.8bn in contracting money the Pentagon has devoted to the job since 2002.
The company is by far the biggest beneficiary of counternarcotics largesse in Afghanistan.
Is it fair, however, to characterize the U.S. mission in Afghanistan as a failure? To do so assumes that the unending Wars on Drugs and Terror are no more nor less than the world-policing actions for the global good that these operations purport to be. “But what exactly are we still doing in Afghanistan after 13 years and why did we really go there in the first place?” questions Pete Papaherakles in American Free Press.
The stated reason for invading Afghanistan in 2001 was to capture Osama bin Laden, who allegedly led al Qaeda—the terrorist group that supposedly carried out the September 11 attacks—from a cave in Afghanistan.
But after a long, drawn-out war, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Leon Panetta said in June 2010 that there were fewer than 100 members of al Qaeda left in Afghanistan. Then, on May 2, 2011, we were told that SEAL Team Six finally found and killed bin Laden in Pakistan and his body was dumped into the sea a couple of days later. At this point “our” stated mission was over.
Yet three and a half years later, U.S. soldiers are still killing and getting killed in Afghanistan.
When Obama was elected to office in 2008, there were only 34,000 troops in Afghanistan. When “we” supposedly killed bin Laden in 2011, that number had increased to over 100,000. Until a year ago, there were still 68,000 troops there. Why were they still there? After all, it costs U.S. taxpayers $10 billion a month to remain in that mountainous country.
Further muddying the issue is the fact that today there are even more private contractors in Afghanistan than there are soldiers. In 2013, while there were 68,000 American troops stationed there, there were also 108,000 private contractors in the country. That amounts to 1.6 mercenaries for every American soldier.
At this point, it has become pretty clear that September 11 and bin Laden were just the excuse that Washington needed to invade Afghanistan.
War is big business, and the weapons industry, along with the banking industry, has reaped trillions of dollars from Afghanistan. According to Harvard’s prestigious Kennedy School of Government, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will end up costing $6 trillion, or $75,000 for each American household—a huge sum that only serves to enrich bomb-makers and bankers.
Besides the trillions of dollars made by the war and finance industries, a second major reason for attacking Afghanistan was to control the energy resources from the Caspian Sea area and prevent Iran and Russia from building pipelines to Pakistan and India. But that’s not all.
A third motive for the war, which is often overlooked, was to seize control of the highly lucrative opium poppy production in Afghanistan.
Proceeds from illegal drug trafficking have always been a great source for funding illegal black-ops projects by the CIA and other intelligence services. Control of the Golden Triangle’s opium was a major reason behind the Vietnam War. The Iran-Contra scandal was about cocaine, and it is well documented by Gary Webb, Barry Seal and others that the CIA has been the main cocaine trafficker into the United States.
Opium (and its refined products) is a $65 billion-a-year business, and $55 billion of that comes from the smuggling of heroin. Afghanistan alone accounts for 90% of the world’s annual opium production.
While Afghanistan has long been a major producer of opium, the Taliban in 2001 eradicated three-quarters of the world’s crop of opium poppies in one season. In that year, production plummeted from 3,300 metric tons to 200 metric tons.
In 2002, however, the year after the U.S invasion, poppy production shot up to 3,400 tons. By 2007, production had skyrocketed to an all-time high of 7,400 tons. In 2014, annual cultivation reached 225,000 hectares, the highest level in Afghanistan’s history, according to published reports.
As a result, heroin use around the world has also surged. Use of heroin in the U.S. has increased by 80% in recent years.
But the U.S. government still maintains that it is “fighting a war on drugs.”
The elites directing the Afghan-American drug trade are hardly men of the caliber of The Godfather’s Don Zaluchi. It matters not to them if their white constituents’ and partners’ sisters or cousins or nephews get tossed onto the rubbish heap of the War on Terror’s collateral carnage. Given the dismal history of the Central Intelligence Agency, its employment of murderers, drug dealers, and S&M freaks, is there any reason not to support Ron Paul’s assertion that the American people ought to do what they can to “End the CIA”?
Drug experimentation and dependency overtook American culture in a major way as the older, traditional, and spiritual values of the West were in decline and experiencing putrefaction. Considering the void left in European man’s life by the abandonment of established principles, can the fact that some have turned to chemicals as a transcendent escape really shock a gleefully dying society that holds no ideals loftier than self-pity, multicultural sensitivity, sports fandom, big dick braggadocio, greed, and anilingual egalitarianism?
