1947 to 1951, FRANCE

According to Alfred W. McCoy in The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, CIA arms, money, and disinformation enabled Corsican criminal syndicates in Marseille to wrestle control of labor unions from the Communist Party. The Corsicans gained political influence and control over the docks -- ideal conditions for cementing a long-term partnership with mafia drug distributors, which turned Marseille into the postwar heroin capital of the Western world. Marseille's first heroin laboratones were opened in 1951, only months after the Corsicans took over the waterfront.

 

EARLY 1950s, SOUTHEAST ASIA

The Nationalist Chinese army, organized by the CIA to wage war against Communist China, became the opium barons of The Golden Triangle (parts of Burma, Thailand and Laos), the world's largest source of opium and heroin. Air America, the ClA's principal airline proprietary, flew the drugs all over Southeast Asia. (See Christopher Robbins, Air America, Avon Books, 1985, chapter 9)

 

1950s to early 1970s, INDOCHINA

During U. S. military involvement in Laos and other parts of Indochina, Air America flew opium and heroin throughout the area. Many Gl's in Vietnam became addicts. A laboratory built at CIA headquarters in northern Laos was used to refine heroin. After a decade of American military intervention, Southeast Asia had become the source of 70 percent of the world's illicit opium and the major supplier of raw materials for America's booming heroin market.

 

1973-80, AUSTRALIA

The Nugan Hand Bank of Sydney was a CIA bank in all but name. Among its officers were a network of US generals, admirals and CIA men, including fommer CIA Director William Colby, who was also one of its lawyers. With branches in Saudi Arabia, Europe, Southeast Asia, South America and the U. S., Nugan Hand Bank financed drug trafficking, money laundering and international arms dealings. In 1980, amidst several mysterious deaths, the bank collapsed, $50 million in debt. (See Jonathan Kwitny, The Crimes of Patriots: A True Tale of Dope, Dirty Money and the CIA, W.W. Norton & Co., 1 987.)

 

1970s and 1980s, PANAMA

For more than a decade, Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega was a highly paid CIA asset and collaborator, despite knowledge by U. S. drug authorities as early as 1971 that the general was heavily involved in drug trafficking and money laundering. Noriega facilitated ''guns-for-drugs" flights for the contras, providing protection and pilots, as well as safe havens for drug cartel otficials, and discreet banking facilities. U.S. officials, including then-ClA Director William Webster and several DEA officers, sent Noriega letters of praise for efforts to thwart drug trafficking (albeit only against competitors of his Medellin Cartel patrons). The U. S. government only turned against Noriega, invading Panama in December 1989 and kidnapping the general once they discovered he was providing intelligence and services to the Cubans and Sandinistas. Ironically drug trafficking through Panama increased after the US invasion.

Breaking Bush's Blockade

Source http://openingmind.blogspot.com/...

I am not the only one in America who understands that the real reason why the United States and (counterfeit-) Israel have decided to back Georgia into provoking Russia during the 2008 Olympics is that the devious duo are planning to slide the entire planet into World War III while the major powers are preoccupied with more immediate concerns in Georgia and at the Summer Olympics in Beijing. http://jahtruth.net/britca.htm

I have reprinted below a rather impressive listing of the additional naval assets President Bush just recently ordered to the Persian Gulf. The size of the naval operation that will soon be off the coast of Iran can only lead us to conclude that President Bush and the Israelis are planning either a war or a blockade against Iran or more likely both.

A naval blockade is an act of war under international law. President Bush could order a quarantine of nuclear material as John Fitzgerald Kennedy did during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October of 1962. But a quick look at the maps of Cuba and Iran will tell us that this cannot work. Do they expect to stop all direct flights from Russia to Iran? No American general would be foolish enough to obey an order to shoot down Russian aircraft over Iran.

One suggestion is that America embargo all oil exports from Iran's Kharg Island. Let's think this through for the benefit of our self-appointed leaders in Washington. I have heard that NATO is an acronym for Not Altogether Thought Out. Iran produces more than 4 million barrels of oil a day. If this oil were suddenly taken off the market, oil prices would start climbing again and the dollar would start another decline. In a recent essay I said that I do not expect the complete collapse of the dollar until the Spring of 2009 but an oil embargo could hasten the day the dollar dies.

What would happen if Russia decided to send a Russian tanker accompanied with Russian warships? Would any American admiral order the sinking of Russian nuclear armed guided missile cruisers? What would happen if Russia also sent a squadron of its most advanced jet fighters?

Patriotism - what it is, and what it is NOT.

by Muad´Dib

 

I hope this finds you all well, in good spirit and having a good day.

Today, I have decided to explain to you about patriotism and how it has been hijacked, and its meaning corrupted and changed to suit Satan and his Synagogue and their endless wars that are used for profit and to murder and maim the infants (infantry) of the nation, who are the future of the nation, thereby destroying the nation.

One of their mottos is: permanent commerce through permanent war. So, for them, the endless “War on Terror” is perfect.

The word patriotism comes from the word patri meaning father, paternal.

Patriarch – a man who is head of a family or group – father/Father.

Patrimony – an inheritance from a father – The Covenant.

Patriot – someone who defends his inheritance/patrimony that he got from his father and ancestors.

It has been hijacked and now twisted to mean somebody who proudly defends his or her country, right or wrong, and its (Satanic) way of life (death really).

Patriotism is now defined as: pride in or devotion to the country somebody was born in or is a citizen of.

Can you see how it has been corrupted by Satan and his minions?

A true patriot is someone who fights for Father and The Way of Life/Torah and keeps the First Commandment which is to love, serve and obey only Father, NOT some Satanic evil government and way of death.

Satan has corrupted everything and brainwashed everyone with his dirty water including the meaning of words to further confuse and deceive everyone.

Time to clean house starting with your own and then working outwards to the rest of the world.

LLTF,

How to train death squads and quash revolutions from San Salvador to Iraq

How to covertly train paramilitaries, censor the press, ban unions, employ terrorists, conduct warrantless searches, suspend habeas corpus, conceal breaches of the Geneva Convention and make the population love it

JULIAN ASSANGE (investigative editor)
Monday June 15, 2008

Wikileaks has released a sensitive 219 page US military counterinsurgency manual. The manual, Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces (1994, 2004), may be critically described as "what we learned about running death squads and propping up corrupt government in Latin America and how to apply it to other places". Its contents are both history defining for Latin America and, given the continued role of US Special Forces in the suppression of insurgencies, including in Iraq and Afghanistan, history making.

The leaked manual, which has been verified with military sources, is the official US Special Forces doctrine for Foreign Internal Defense or FID.

FID operations are designed to prop up a "friendly" government facing a popular revolution or guerilla insurgency. FID interventions are often covert or quasi-covert due to the unpopular nature of the governments being supported ("In formulating a realistic policy for the use of advisors, the commander must carefully gauge the psychological climate of the HN [Host Nation] and the United States.")

The manual directly advocates training paramilitaries, pervasive surveillance, censorship, press control and restrictions on labor unions & political parties. It directly advocates warrantless searches, detainment without charge and (under varying circumstances) the suspension of habeas corpus. It directly advocates employing terrorists or prosecuting individuals for terrorism who are not terrorists, running false flag operations and concealing human rights abuses from journalists. And it repeatedly advocates the use of subterfuge and "psychological operations" (propaganda) to make these and other "population & resource control" measures more palatable.

American soldier exposes US policy in Iraq



Alternative link

After 7 months in Iraq, Darrell Anderson, 22, decided that he wasn't to risk going back to Iraq to kill or be killed. He fled to Canada, a deserter. While there, though, he felt he wasn't doing enough to expose and stop the war and returned to U.S. and, possibly, a long prison sentence. Perhaps to undermine the legal case of other deserters in Canada, the U.S. military imprisoned Anderson only a few days, releasing him with a 'less than honorable' discharge. Given Anderson's heroic determination to organize and help GI and other war resisters, the U.S. military may come to believe they've made a mistake.

Checkpoint USA

Checkpoint USA is dedicated to exposing the police state - one checkpoint at a time.

 

This internal suspicionless Homeland Security checkpoint took place on Southern Arizona's SR86 near Mile Post 146 on January 8, 2008.

The location is over 40 miles North of the Southern Border on a highway that never intersects the border...

Overwhelming Evidence Points To Murder Of DC Madam

Evidence is stacking up to suggest that the alleged "suicide" of DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey was in fact a calculated murder, as the manager of Palfrey’s Florida Condo reveals that Palfrey was not suicidal when he spoke to her Monday and told him of her fears about a contract being out on her life.

The new testimony is backed up by at least four other recorded public statements on behalf of Palfrey attesting to the fact that she would never commit suicide and if she was found dead to immediately suspect murder.

Despite these on-the-record statements, the majority of the corporate media has ignored each one and instead given credence to the unverified claim of a professional conspiracy debunker who has been caught fabricating statements in the past.

Published: April 16, 2008 NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Actor Criticizes Broadcast Industry Focus on The Tawdry and Demeaning: Even as he came on stage to give the keynote address at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, it was obvious that Tim Robbins' remarks had caused controversy backstage. The Academy Award-winning actor and critically acclaimed screenwriter, director and producer first indicated to the audience that he would not be giving his speech. Then, floor agents of the NAB organizers ordered journalists' video cameras turned off. An NAB spokesman later said Mr. Robbins contract had a "no filming" clause. Ultimately, Mr. Robbins changed his mind and started talking. Listen to the six best minutes of the speech.
