Another Record Breaking Year for Opium Production in U.S. Occupied Afghanistan

WEB Notes: Now let us think about this for a moment. Afghanistan produces the most opium in the entire world despite the United States spending billions of dollars AND being in Afghanistan to fight against it. Now I do not know about you, but I think someone is trying to pull the wool over our eyes…

Do you realize the opium production in Afghanistan is 40 times higher than it was before the US NATO invasion?

It is painfully obvious, they are not fighting against it, but enabling it.

I want you to note the map below of Afghanistan. It is a mountains and arid nation. With US satellites and drones it would be extremely easy to identify where the opium is being grown and to snuff it out. But that is not happening.

Now officially a national federal emergency, the opioid crisis is gutting America. The roots of this complex issue lie in supply, not demand, and while we are beginning to see major pharmaceutical executives being indicted for conspiracy and bribery of doctors, we have a long way to go to turn this thing around.

Pharmaceutical and synthetic opioids are a major part of the catastrophe, but the other side of the supply chain is actual opium, and the world’s biggest opium market just happens to be occupied Afghanistan, the epicenter of the global heroin trade. The United States military has been operating in Afghanistan as part of the war on terror for over 16 years now, and opium production in the war-torn nation continues to increase, year-over-year, coinciding with the rise of the opioid crisis.

2017 looks to be another record year for opium production in Afghanistan. As reported by Business Insider:

“The country has produced the majority of the world’s opium for some time, despite billions of dollars spent by the US to fight it during the 16-year-long war there. Afghan and Western officials now say that rather than getting smuggled out of Afghanistan in the form of opium syrup, at least half of the crop is getting processed domestically, before leaving the country as morphine or heroin.” [Source]

  1. The Taliban actually stopped the opium farming in Afghanistan that was their mistake. Then US troops went in and it started back up again. I have seen pictures of the troops helmet on the back with GOD=gold, oil, drugs should tell us who really is in control.
    We cannot stop the one-world system coming into place, but we can be assured IF we know the correct chronological order of events as written in our Bible.
    Thanks, Brandon
