I have written extensively here on IST about my dislike for the War on Drugs….that I feel that it is a total waste of energy and cash…..
I read an interesting take on this war has on geopolitics…..it seems far fetched but it is something to consider…..
Peter Dale Scott notes that the connection between the CIA and BCCI enabled drug trafficking as a means of arming the resistance against the Soviet Union.
The illegal drug trade is an essential component of global politics, playing a central role in the proliferation of arms used to destabilize countries and unseat unfavorable regimes in the geopolitical quest to create favorable conditions for oil ventures while bolstering the banking industry.
Peter Dale Scott, a Canadian born scholar, poet and former diplomat, the world’s foremost researcher into the inner workings of government conspiracy (conspiracy meaning organized plans and programs). He has for decades been exposing the shadow elements operating under the cover of government, deep politics and big oil.
I believe that the whole war thing is a total made up story to waste money on non-essential “bad guy”…..legalize and tax….many of the problems would be solved…and yes there may create a few new ones but that is minor compared to the damage this war is doing worldwide.
