Lavrov Calls Out NATO’s Role in Afghan Drug Trafficking

Russia’s Foreign Minister says that NATO tolerates drug trafficking in Afghanistan — which continues to fund extremism in the region

  Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov always finds the most diplomatic ways to point out Washington’s innumerable international crimes. 

During a discussion with Russian military officers last week in Moscow, Lavrov pointed to Afghanistan as an example of Washington’s longstanding policy of “managed chaos” in the Middle East. In the process, he also blew the whistle on NATO’s extremely high tolerance for drug trafficking:

The US operation against the Taliban and al-Qaeda was supported by all countries. It’s another matter that after receiving the international approval, the United States and its NATO allies, which took over in Afghanistan, started acting rather inconsistently, to put it mildly. During their operation in Afghanistan, the terrorist threat has not been rooted out, while the drug threat has increased many times over. The drug industry prospered. There is factual evidence that some of the NATO contingents in Afghanistan turned a blind eye to the illegal drug trafficking, even if they were not directly involved in these criminal schemes. Afghanistan is a separate case, although the current developments there, which are a result of the NATO operation’s failure, despite the carte blanche the bloc received from the international community, can be considered an unintended cause of managed chaos. In Iraq, Syria and Libya, this chaos was created intentionally.

Lavrov is being too gentle. 

As Wired magazine reported back in 2013, current U.S. policy in Afghanistan is to allow poppy fields to grow — and prevent Afghan forces from destroying them. You can’t make this stuff up:

[U.S. soldiers are] not allowed to actually step foot in [the Afghan farmer's] many acres of poppy fields or damage the fields in any way.

They can’t even threaten to destroy the fields or send in Afghan troops to burn, plow under or poison the delicate, pastel-colored flowers.

Watch Lavrov “diplomatically” blow the whistle on this insane racket.

  • NATO NAZI notice the similarity, the T is a Z twisted a bit and the O collapsed is an I. Twisted and collapsed organization allowing drugs to go out to the world for money they benefit from obviously. No NATO does not bring in any industry NATO needs drug money, no investment, just peasants and some water, markup value is 100,000% for the carry away in neat little bundled packages, the nefarious NAZI regime of the EU plots against people everywhere with the NAZI buds in the US, so a bunch of druggies get hig and die, makes billions in property seizures for all law enforcement agencies in the US and the EU, immorality at its very superlative, vicious deranged dogs is what they have become. What no war, start one for money somehow, Go War Got Milk, its a sad spectacle that no politicians have called these thug gangsters on the carpet however; as the old saying goes follow the big money and you will get to the truth, truth is opium is big money simple followup. The gates of hell await those who have trampled humanity for money. Their rule is near the end, the Landlord, his son and army are coming.
