As more of the blame for the world’s exacerbating opiate overdose crisis is now being rightly put on the pharmaceutical industry, the dark side of this epidemic in the fact that the production of opium containing poppies has exploded since the military occupation of Afghanistan beginning in 2001.
According to Russian diplomat, Sergey Lavrov, there are signs of collusion between NATO and drug producers and traffickers working to flood the world with opium. Remarking on how the mission to rid Afghanistan of terrorists quickly became distorted after the invasion, ultimately creating a never-ending supply of drugs to the West.
During their operation in Afghanistan, the terrorist threat has not been rooted out, while the drug threat has increased many times over. The drug industry prospered. 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. ~Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister
So, what exactly is the evidence? In a 2014 report, the UN notes that poppy production had reached an all-time global high, with shocking increases in heroin users worldwide.
The amount of land used for cultivating opium poppies around the world is at an all-time high, says a UN report. Afghanistan is largely behind the increase, with its crop growing by 36 percent over a year, producing 80 percent of the world’s opium.
A World Drug Report released by the UN’s Vienna-based Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has charted the global use of drugs. Although it says that global drug use is “stable,” it notes that the cultivation of opium has grown drastically. [Source]
As noted by TDC:
When the Untied Nations produces a report that reads like a corporate stock prospectus you know something is fishy. The UN report was very detailed about the number of new addicts, the flow of drugs out of Afghanistan and the final destination. [Source]
Furthermore, as noted by Lavrov, there is a strategy of managed chaos in play at present in the Middle East and northern Africa, disrupting and ruining the lives of millions of people, for the benefit of America and those in positions to temporarily profit from unfettered access to the natural resources of targeted nations.
The concept of managed chaos appeared long ago as a method of strengthening US influence. Its basic premise is that managed chaos projects should be launched away from the United States in regions that are crucial for global economic and financial development. ~Sergey Lavrov
Lavrov’s comments on the opium crisis and managed chaos are included in the following video.

There goes those pesky Russians again. Spitting out more of the truth that the nat’l left wing media here is in full denial about, in the “protecting their buddies at BIG Pharma at all cost and even disregarding the truth to this matter especially” mode. Who would have thought more of truth reigns at RT than any of the nat’l left wing media’s websites? Especially regarding this opioid epidemic and CRISIS that BIG Pharma all by itself has unleashed on this country and the world??? There should be some arrests and resulting prosecution’s over this crime and outrage too as the big time drug criminals all work for BIG Pharma.
This constitutes news? Anyone with functioning brain cells already knows this as it is obvious. We miss you Patrick Tillman…
sdo who are the bad guys – a nation with Christian roots anxious to preserve their culture and sovereignty, or a nation hiujacked by some of the most immoral – even perverted – scoundrels in modern history that have flooded a resistant world with poisoned food, “entertained” the world with intelligence agency Hollywood films (including the ones which laid out the 911 attacks years beforehand), and kills millions in defence of history’s most blasphemously criminal banking system?
This was apparent right after the invasion of Afghanistan when the ban on poppies was reversed to stoke profits for the banks and intelligence agencies as well as the long running global elite penchant for sowing chaos and disempowering their serfs… going as far back as the British Empire shipping opium to China and probably before that.
Nothing new here… it’s more “look here, not there” – you’re supposed to forget the fact that the US Congress is approving the sale of your browsing history. Where’s the outcry?
This is no distraction — the deep state’s covert monopoly on drug distribution is the top censored story of the mainstream media. This is the shadow government’s biggest source of income! Some of the largest banks in the world only exist because they are laundering drug money for the military-intelligence community. If you want to identify all of the corrupt politicians, just check which ones support prohibition!
Thanks, yes, I get where you’re coming from and agree that most people exclusively following the MSM aren’t fully aware of this. For those of us who are awake it’s old news being recycled at a time when activists should be focused on direct attacks on our civil liberties and an aggressive push by TPTB to lock down the internet & immolate the First Amendment. Obama transferred control over the internet to the UN via ICANN and congress passed a bill allowing the sale of our internet browsing histories – only two examples among several alarming moves. This push should have galvanized Americans to protest in the streets and overwhelm congress with fierce opposition, just as the shredding of habeas corpus with the passage of the NDAA should have ignited a firestorm and backlash. Remember how Aaron Swarz mobilized energetic & determined opposition to SOPA?
Regarding the notion the deep state’s biggest source of income comes from laundering drug money, I would say that was largely true up until the Bush Sr. administration. Under the Clinton admin, top bankster henchman Larry Summers spearheaded the effective repeal of the Glass Steagall Act allowing banks to make risky investments and thus the shadowy house-of-cards derivatives market was born making it infinitely easier for the banksters and their minions to create massive slush funds in the billions and likely trillions (Rothschilds). They use shell companies and sophisticated market rigging to effectively “print” and shift around their filthy lucre. It’s infinitely easier now compared to the Iran-Contra era.
P.S. Note the one-sided reporting of Russia calling out the US, while the Russian elites have been doing the same thing, which we were tangentially reminded of with Trump’s pick for Sec of Commerce billionaire Ross Wilbur having been a former vice-chairman of the Bank of Cyprus. In the aftermath of the collapse of that bank it became notorious for its connections to Russian elites and Russian drug money laundering. That’s the real hook here, subtle programming of a sharp contrast of nations that’s not the case – to include false flags! http://reprints.longform.org/putin-conspiracy-banned-story-anderson
A well stated accurate percipience & a bulls-eye / tip of the spear pointing directly at the iniquity where it all went wrong & is continuing to be a grossly perverted path of a willful wanton destruction of all that is common sense sanity (imo)..
Where’s the outcry? Hell, the vast majority of Idiot culture can’t SPELL “outcry” let alone forget the playoffs/Kardashian’s current “stud” long enough to execute same. They don’t even raise a fuss over the NFL’s “tax exempt” status. Sigh – HURRY oblivion!
Yep. Although, it doesn’t seem that long ago Aaron Swartz mobilized a massive backlash against SOPA. ..Yet, not a peep when Obummer transferred the internet to ICANN / UN. Strange. Smart phone hypnosis?
Sigh, and I thought my wife and I would live out our last years in quiet retirement. If it wasn’t for the millions being murdered by the synagogue and their Judas Class across the world, I’d just sit down and weep… I never thought I’d see a culture SO foolish/ warped it would make ignorance/perversion 2 virtues.
Don’t feel too bad, we’ve done our best to wake up our fellow serfs and the NWO system is very unnatural for us and the environment, it might still unravel on them.
…Keep in mind some of our failings are hard wired, e.g. Tulip Mania was circa 1636 and lots of foolishness taking place before that. If humanity understood itself and its enemies better early on, then we wouldn’t be in this crazy predicament. Hang in there, Paschn.
Thanks buddy, same to you.
Just another provocation from Russia. Anyone who is paying attention knows that americans never use, buy, or sell drugs.
It is an absolute spectacle to contrast the clear-sightedness and morality of a nation vilified in every way with it its accuse, led by global drug-trafficking, perverted, warmongering, and (culturally) suicidal maniacs.

Odd. The U.S. creates a reason out of thin air to go into Afghanistan and now big pharma and the corner pusher man (backed by the cartels) has a great number of folks hooked on opium.
‘The Committee of 300’ John D. Coleman, hint; the Royals have owned the drug routes for hundreds of years.
‘Barry and the Boys’ Dennis Hopsicker, hint; U.S. taxpayer guns for drugs flown into Mena, Arkansas during the Bush seniors tenure at the head of the CIA. Poor ol’ Barry…RIP
