Roads to Iraq – via uruknet.info Septmber 3, 2006
We read that opium production reached it highest level in Afghanistan this year.
Afghanistan’s opium harvest this year has reached the highest levels ever recorded, showing an increase of almost 50 percent from last year.
Few lies in the article:
the increase in cultivation was significantly fueled by the resurgence of Taliban rebels in the south, the country’s prime opium growing region……in 1999 while the Taliban governed the country. The area cultivated increased by 59 percent, with more than 400,000 acres planted with poppies in 2006 compared with less than 260,000 in 2005……
Opium Harvest at Record Level in Afghanistan
While in 2005, the UN Drug Control and the US State Department said:
the Taliban religious militia has virtually wiped out opium production in Afghanistan - once the world’s largest producer - since banning poppy cultivation in July
Afghanistan Opium Said Wiped Out
Opium in Afghanistan and Pakistan was always used by dark, underground organizations like the CIA and MI6 to fund themselves and their sub-organizations controlled terror networks.
In 1983, the WWF [another shadowy organization: read below] successfully persuaded the Pakistani government to create two national parks directly on the Afghan border in the northern region of Chitral.
The remote region is not particularly reknowned either for its abundance of animal life or the existence of endangered species, and presumably the flow of eco-tourists into the region diminished during the Afghan War.
Chitral was, an area where the US funded the Mujahdeen with opium money. It was also a primary staging area for smuggling arms into Afghanistan.
WWF: The World Wildlife Fund is another elitist racist institution that masquerades as a humanitarian environmentalist organization. It was created by Prince Phillip of England, the husband of the Queen. He is on record as saying that if he is reincarnated he would like to return as a killer virus, to help solve the overpopulation problem.
