This may be a coincedence but the two areas central in current conflicts are also Drug hot spots. Both Lebanon and Afghanistan are major heroin hubs, Moreover the historic home of the Lebanese drug trade is the Bekaa Valley where Hezbollah is located. The romantic notion of resistance chalked up by dimwits like John Brown is also juxtaposed with narco trafficing mullahs.
I have yet to hear the Duck comment about FARC the Communist Narco terror gang in Columbia. Senator John " Gomer" Kerry was all over the Contra/Drug angle but he was silent about Cuban and Sandanista narco activity. Do not hold your breath for Duncy to own up to the fact that FARC is a drug pushing Communist Gang. In reality the drugs that ruin lives in America are more then likely pushed with the aid of Communist thug protection in Columbia and Peru.
The bottom line is that as long as we have a market somebody will produce it. However the reality of jihadi and Communist involvement in the drug trade is the unspoken reality.
This may be ironic but Israel should have targeted the opium fields in the Bekaa Valley. How the world would react to the napalming of small farms is unknown. There are narco distribution facilities in the Bekaa Valley as well and a well placed bomb
could cost millions. It is doubtful that Nasrallahs narco facilities will be harmed by the Lebanese Army or the useless UN force that has done zero allready.
