U.S. to Announce $10 Billion Arms Sale in Middle East
19 April 2013
, by Gopal Ratnam (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-19/u-s-to-announce-10-billion-arms-sale-in-middle-east.html

The Obama administration is to announce a $10 billion arms package to Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates that will be the centerpiece of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s visit the countries next week, according to a U.S. official.

The arms sold to Israel will include an unspecified number of V-22 Osprey tiltrotor transport aircraft, precision strike missiles, air defense radar and KC-35 refueling tankers; the UAE is likely to buy 26 F-16 jet fighters, and the Persian Gulf nation as well as Saudi Arabia will each buy precision missiles, said the official who provided the details on the condition of anonymity ahead of the deal’s announcement.

If the transaction goes through it will be the first foreign sale of the V-22 tiltrotor made by Boeing Co. (BA) and Textron Inc.’s Bell Helicopter unit.

The UAE already ordered 80 F-16s made by Lockheed Martin Corp. in the late 1990s, and Saudi Arabia operates a fleet of Boeing-made F-15 jets.

Details of the make and model of the precision strike missile and air defense radar weren’t immediately available.

The announcement of an arms package to allies in the Middle East comes as Hagel readies his first trip to the region since taking his Cabinet post in February.

The weapons sales will be a centerpiece of the visit, the U.S. official said.

Iran, Syria

At a broader level Hagel’s visit to Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and UAE is likely to be focused on the threats to the region from Iran and Syria, said Aaron David Miller, a Middle East specialist at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.

In Israel, Hagel “has to make clear on the psychological and emotional side that he gets it that they’re in a very dangerous and uncertain neighborhood,” Miller said in a telephone interview before details of the arms sales surfaced.

To that end the announcement of additional arms deal with Israel is likely to be a highlight of Hagel’s meetings with his counterpart Moshe Yaalon, as well as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The deal also underscores President Barack Obama’s comments last month in Israel that the Jewish state must have the capacity to defend itself against potential threats from Iran, which is suspected of developing nuclear weapons, and from Syria, which has chemical weapons.

The Obama administration also has funded Israel’s Iron Dome system, designed to shoot down short-range rockets.

In its 2014 budget request the Pentagon sought $220 million to buy additional batteries of the missile defense system for Israel.

If approved by Congress, that spending will be on top of the $486 million the U.S. has added for the system in recent years.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has been a long-time buyer of U.S. armaments and operates a significant American-made arsenal.

In 2010, in one of the largest arms-sales to date, the U.S. announced a deal with Saudi Arabia valued at $30 billion that included 84 Boeing-made F-15 jets and 72 UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters built by United Technologies Corp.

Last year, the U.S. proposed selling to Saudi Arabia a fleet of 20 C-130J military transport planes, five KC-130J refueling aircraft and related equipment from Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT) valued at about $6.7 billion.

From the opium wars to today's Afghanistan serving as the world's number one heroin hub providing well over 90% of the World's heroin under the boots of tens of thousands of US-led NATO forces.

In the background of this the United Nations has advised that opium cultivation in Afghanistan has increased for the third year in a row.

The report said poppy cultivation was highest in regions where US-led troops had been stationed over the past years, which is mostly in the southern parts.

Last year Afghanistan supplied about 75% of the global supply of heroin, a derivative of opium, which is expected to jump to 90% this year due to the increased cultivation.

Record opium poppy cultivation has 5% of Afghan population using heroin

Record opium poppy cultivation has 5% of Afghan pop. using heroin
12 November 2014
, (RT)
http://rt.com/news/204691-afghanistan-opium-record-un/



The UN says opium poppy growth in Afghanistan will rise to record levels by the end of 2014. A report by the organization says there is a 7% increase in land being cultivated despite the US spending over $7 billion on counter narcotics programs.

The survey was carried out by the Vienna based United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC) and it’s bad news for the new Afghan government.

They are already struggling to deal with a revitalized Taliban insurgency, especially in areas where opium poppy growth is at its highest.

The UNODC’s Jean-Luc Lemahieu admitted that the figures from the report seemed to show that plans to eradicate or reduce opium production had failed.

However, he did have confidence in the new Afghan government, even though the US led coalition has all but pulled out of the country.

Washington has also spent $7.6 billion on counter narcotics programs in the country, since the Taliban’s fall from power in 2001.

"(Changing) the economic incentives away from the illicit economy to the licit economy, now that’s a hell of a task, but that’s exactly what indeed this new government seems to stand for," said Lemahieu, the UNODC director for policy analysis and public affairs said, as reported by Reuters.

The organization stated that poppy cultivation had expanded to 224,000 hectares in 2014, which was an increase of seven percent.

In contrast, a mere 74,000 hectares were being used to grow poppies in 2002, a year after the Taliban regime was ousted from power.

Not surprisingly with the rise in land being used to grow poppies, there has been an increase in opium production, which is used to make heroin.

Around 6,400 tons of opium were produced in 2014, which is an increase of 17 percent from the previous year. However, it failed to reach the all-time record of 7,400 which was produced in 2007.

"In 2014, opium prices decreased in all regions of Afghanistan. One probable reason for the decrease was an increase in supply due to an increase in production," the survey said.

With the price of opium falling, this has led to a surge in the number of drug addicts in Afghanistan, with an estimated 1.5 million drug users out of a country of 30 million people, UN officials have stated, which is 5% of the country’s population.

The report also showed that attempts to eradicate poppy cultivation were failing.

Eradication programs decreased by 63% with only 2,692 hectares being cleared, while rudimentary and labor intensive methods, such as using sticks, blades and hands and uprooting were often used to get rid of the crops.

New Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has been in power for less than two months, however, he does have a comprehensive plan to try and tackle the growing drug problem in the country, according to Lemahieu.

The vast majority (89 percent) of opium cultivation took place in nine provinces in Afghanistan’s Southern and Western regions, which include the country’s most insecure provinces.

The Afghan president has written a book on how to fix failed states and says the need to increase jobs is key.

He believes that cotton could be grown instead of poppies, if the West dropped tariffs, which are imposed on textiles produced in Afghanistan.


And that is a reason for a good celebration ;) The last of the poppies is planted

Afghan Opium Crop Inflames U.S. Tensions With Russia

Afghan Opium Crop Inflames U.S. Tensions With Russia
13 November 2014
, by Jonathan Tirone (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/print/2014-11-14/afghan-opium-crop-inflames-u-s-tensions-with-russia.html

Excerpt:

Another record poppy crop in Afghanistan, already the source of 90 percent of the world’s heroin, may add to tensions with Russia as the U.S. withdraws troops after spending $7.6 billion on a failed attempt to curb narcotics production.

Russia, the biggest market for illicit opiates, is facing a public health crisis and a rise in crime stoked by the flow of Afghan heroin, Yuri Fedotov, executive secretary of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said Nov. 12 at a briefing in Vienna.

The U.S. special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, John Sopko, visited Fedotov this week to give his assessment of the lost drug war.

“This failure in Afghanistan affects what I call the new Cold War with Russia,” said Robert Legvold, who led the effort by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences to reformulate America’s relationship with Russia.

“For Russia this is a very serious issue and the discontent about what is and isn’t being done is long standing.”

As the U.S. grapples with a President Vladimir Putin’s aggression in eastern Europe, government officials and advisers say the failure of the Afghan drugs effort helps explain Russian sensitivities.

While U.S. forces withdraw from a 13-year Afghan war that cost 2,350 American lives, more than 7,000 Russians die annually from heroin overdoses.

Police Growing Poppies

Russians, who already account for about a fifth of the $70 billion global opiate market, are unlikely to see a reduction of supply in the foreseeable future, according to the UN.

Reduced North Atlantic Treaty Organization presence in Afghanistan may encourage more poppy cultivation.

“With their departure, many jobs will be lost, so that could be one incentive to increase cultivation of opium,” Fedotov, a former Russian diplomat said.

Delayed government salaries are already forcing some Afghan police to abandon law enforcement for poppy cultivation, he said.

Afghan land under poppy cultivation hit a record 224,000 hectares (554,000 acres) last year, according to the UN.

Opium production rose about 17 percent to 6,400 tons while the number of fields eradicated by security forces plummeted 63 percent to 2,692 hectares.

Underlining the U.S. counter narcotics failure, opium production rose faster in the areas where the U.S. and U.K. targeted $56 million of aid to help farmers switch from growing poppies to pomegranates than it did in areas that received no money, the UN said.

G-8 Statement

This year’s increase in opium production followed a June 2013 call by the Group of Eight leaders at their summit in Northern Ireland.

Before Russia was kicked out of the group for its Ukraine land grab, it joined in on a communique urging “further measures to reduce” poppy cultivation and “tackle more effectively” the Afghanistan’s drug problem.

Countries shouldn’t expect Afghanistan to kick its habit anytime soon, according to Pakistan’s former central bank governor, Shamshad Akhtar, who now leads a UN office promoting economic development in Asia.

“Afghanistan has a dependence on one product,” Akhtar said in an interview in Vienna, where she was attending a UN meeting convened to help landlocked countries like Afghanistan diversify their economies.

“The switch from one product to multiple products is not an easy one, especially in a situation where you have one very high-return product.”

Strategic Rivalries

The Afghan drug failure is more than a public-health disaster, according to Legvold, who spoke in the middle of a joint seminar he was giving to aspiring American and Russian diplomats about strategic rivalries.

It also fuels the growing distrust between the two powers.

“It has unleashed in Russia the notion that there’s more to this failure than they might have thought,” Legvold said.

“It supports the views expressed by Putin and his circle that U.S. foreign policy has been intentionally destructive.”

With the U.S. cutting the number of troops deployed to Afghanistan by more than half before next year -- to only 9,800 in a country the size of Texas -- Russia may reassert its presence in the region, according to Ross Eventon, an analyst at the Global Drug Policy Observatory based in Swansea, U.K.

“Russia is increasingly picking up on international drug policy,” Eventon said in an interview.

“Their policy in Central Asia is expected to mirror what the U.S. did in Latin America where they built military bases.”

The Drug War Moves East As Cartels’ Influence In Africa Grows

September 5, 2012

In early November 2009, a Boeing 727 crashed on takeoff near the town of Tarkint in northern Mali, or so the initial reports indicated. Closer scrutiny of the crash revealed a web of connections that typify the ever-metastasizing menace of drug trafficking in Africa, both as a destination point and a transit route to Europe and North America.(a)
...

...


Figure 2: World Heroin & Morphine Trafficking, 2006 (reported seizures over 10kg). Image Source: UNODC 2008 (see endnote 1).

...
drug trafficking is emerging as a threat to international security. Drug runners both in Western and Eastern Africa have been linked to terrorist groups operating in the Sahel and in the Horn. Drugs smuggling routes through the Sahara desert are an important revenue source for Islamist groups like Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM)
...
Will Africa Become the Next Central America?  [ seems that it has with all the refugees to Europe!] 

The globalization of terrorism over the last decade has created a situation in which the number one threat to international security is no longer strong, conquering states, but failing ones that provide safe havens for terrorist organizations.
Drug trafficking in Africa reflects the heart of this concern. The illicit trade is both contributing to the deterioration of state institutions – which could result in state collapse – and financing terrorist groups like AQIM and Al-Shabaab. So far the international community has not treated the matter with the urgency it deserves. The consequences of inaction will be dire, as has already been seen in Central America. The region’s misfortune of being an important transit route between South American cocaine production centers and North American consumers has resulted in the highest murder rates in the world, fueled by transnational organized crime and drug trafficking. The statistics are astonishing: Among 20-year old men in some Central American countries, 1 in 50 will be murdered before they are 32.(e) Africa, a region already replete with weak states, might be next if drug trafficking on the continent continues to grow.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Heroin is a real problem in the nearest big city from me
and has been for over a year.  They cited zero (obama)
restricting certain pain pills (opioids) and they've gotten
hard to find and expensive on the streets, so people are
turning to heroin to get loaded, easy to get and cheaper.

All over the t.v. news are crimes associated with heroin
and all I can say is people best lock and load, these heroin
addicts are breaking into homes like never before in that city
to feed their habits. 

Tell tale sign where I used to live, it could be 106 degrees Fahrenheit
and you'd see the junkies in long sleeve winter type shirts to cover
their tracks on their arms.   

The fire dept Captain in this big city also has said calls for people
who've O.D.'d (over dosed) are up 75% in just the last year.   We
also have zero (obama) to thank for this, with him turning his back
on enforcing border laws, the mules have been bringing heroin into
the USA for a good few years now knowing they won't get caught.

(Mule- slang for someone who carries in drugs and other contraband)

And the lame stream t.v. news is trying to make people feel sorry
for these junkies, including parading their small children on camera
crying why "Daddy shouldn't go to jail"  when they get caught over and
over and over for residential burglaries.    Sorry kids, daddy is a junkie
and he'd steal from you if you had items he could hock (sell) for a fix.

Heroin is still an epidemic that they're now trying to
stop talking about it on the news.   It's hitting college
age adults big time right now 2 hours from me at all
the colleges.  Even the jocks on the football team are
dying from heroin over doses.   And...why do they
shoot themselves up in the neck?  They're jabbing
the syringe into their neck veins, the side of the neck, that vein.  Gross!

Fourteen years after decriminalization, Portugal has not been run into the ground by a nation of drug addicts. In fact, by many measures, it’s doing far better than it was before.

The DEA’s Own Website Proves The War On Drugs Is An Epic Failure

No it was a great success because it kept drug prices inflated (which saved the banks) and gave jobs to millions of law enforcement agencies inside and outside the drug trade. Not to mention all the work it gave to the undertakers and prison guards. Papa Bush is awfully proud on you. And remember everybody would be using drugs if it weren’t so expensive.

There is compelling evidence that suggests George G.W. Bush and Bill Clinton were once part of the largest drug smuggling operation in American history.

Darrin McBreen and David Knight talk about the Bush and Clinton Crime Family connections with the CIA, Barry Seal, Oliver North and the Iran Contra Scandal.

September Surprise: EX CIA Operative Outs Bill & Hillary Clinton As Cocaine Traffickers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3-0zVmBL9Y

Sep 23, 2016 The Alex Jones Channel

This is a vintage video interview conducted by Alex Jones in 2000 with ex CIA operative turned author Terry Reed.

Reed discloses that George HW Bush and Bill Clinton were part of a cocaine trafficking network that moved guns for drugs as part of federal operation conducted by Col. Oliver North.

This interview was part of Police 2 The Takeover released in 2000.

It has stood the test of time as we can glimpse into the corrupt souls of the Clintons as Hillary makes a desperate bid to become POTUS in the 2016 election.

Afghanistan: 43% rise in estimated opium harvest

Afghanistan: 43% rise in estimated opium harvest
23 October 2016
, (Al Jazeera)
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/10/afghanistan-43-percent-rise-estimated-opium-harvest-161023074029664.html

Figures from government and UNODC show 10% increase in poppy cultivation and 91% decrease in eradication.

Estimated opium production in Afghanistan has risen by 43% to 4,800 metric tonnes in 2016 compared with 2015 levels, according to the latest  Afghanistan Opium Survey figures released by the Afghan Ministry of Counter Narcotics and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

The survey, released on Sunday, showed that the total area under cultivation in Afghanistan at an estimated 201,000 hectares in 2016, a 10% increase from the 183,000 hectares in 2015.

The report also showed a 91% decrease in eradication this year.

No eradication has taken place in provinces with high levels of opium poppy cultivation due to the extremely poor security situation in those areas, as well as logistical and financial challenges, the report said.

Overall, potential opium production in Afghanistan has increased 43%, with 4,800 tonnes this year compared to 3,300 tonnes in 2015.

Yury Fedotov, UNODC executive director, said in a statement on Sunday that the new report shows a worrying reversal in efforts to combat the persistent problem of illicit drugs and their impact on development, health and security.

Fedotov urged the international community to lend their support to achieving the sustainable development goals in Afghanistan - including vital work on a peaceful and inclusive society, health, poverty, peace, and gender, among many others.

Poppy farmers are often taxed by the Taliban, who use the cash to help fund their fight against government forces.

Afghanistan grows about 80% of the world's opium, which is used to produce highly addictive heroin.

The poppies, which provide huge profits in one of the world's poorest countries, play a large part in the corruption that plagues Afghan life at every level.
