Continued NATO Afghanistan Occupation leads to Windfall Profits for Big Pharma Drug Lords--and Record Vancouver Overdoses

Vancouver Downtown East Side is Ground Zero
for Afghanistan NATO Occupation on behalf of
Big Pharma Drug Lords 

US President Donald Trump announced yesterday that the permanent occupation of Afghanistan will continue into infinity.  Four thousand more American (and NATO) soldiers will be sent to guard the poppy crops on behalf of Big Pharma.

You would think Canada's Le Dauphin Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would be able to connect the dots between Canada's participation in the NATO occupation of Afghanistan [predicated on the lies of 9/11] and the "heartbreaking" (according to the Vancouver Mayor) increase in local opioid deaths. But, if the past is prologue...he never will.  Please read the following shocking story about the record-breaking number of drug overdoses in Vancouver so far in 2017 which includes:  The bureaucrats helpless and hopeless wringing of hands and; The "list of remedies"--that carefully sidesteps the obvious remedy...CUT OFF THE SOURCE OF THE DRUGS!!!!!....and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

City of Vancouver’s 2017 drug overdose numbers already surpass 2016 total; estimate 400 deaths by year end

In the wake of three fatal overdose last week, Vancouver has now surpassed the total number of illicit-drug deaths for all of 2016. New statistics show the City has so far recorded 232 suspected overdose deaths for 2017; which is one more than the overall total for 2016. At this rate, the City is anticipating more than 400 deaths by the end of the year. “The rising number of overdose deaths this year is horrendous and absolutely heartbreaking,” Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said in a release. “We will continue to work with the new provincial government and pour City resources into tackling this crisis. We can’t be complacent and let the number of deaths from this public health crisis be the new normal.


The City says first responders are continuing to handle an “extreme volume” of overdose response calls. Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services (VFRS) responded to 102 calls for the week of August 7, a slight decrease from the 114 reported the week prior.
On average, the City’s first responders have received 135 calls a week this year.
The City said it is calling on the federal and provincial governments to make this a top priority. A few of the actions recommended to both levels of government include:
  • creating a national regulatory framework for all illicit substances and exploring decriminalization;
  • expanding addictions treatment including injectable options;
  • increasing the number of overdose prevention sites to all communities in need;
  • providing necessary services in supportive housing for people at risk for overdose;
  • implementing drug checking technology and programs;
  • and amending legislation for MSP to include coverage for evidence based, psycho-social addiction treatments.
Despite a public health emergency and the approval of naloxone kits, the number of illicit drug deaths in B.C. is continuing to rise this year at a rate of almost four each day, according to the latest statistics released by the BC Coroners Service.

Recent numbers show there were 111 suspected drug overdose deaths in June, which is an average of 3.7 per cent each day and a 61 per cent increase from June 2016. This brings the number of deaths to date in B.C. for 2017 to 780 — which is up from the 414 at the same time last year. The stats also show that almost three-quarters of all illicit drug deaths were people between the ages of 30 and 59 years and four out of five who died, were male. These numbers continue to follow a trend seen in a previous report released by the BC Coroners in May that showed there were 488 accidental drug overdose deaths in the province from January through April 2017.

The coroner says fentanyl still remains a major contributor to the high number of deaths.

This year, from January to May, there were 525 (out of 669) cases where fentanyl was found, which translates to 78 per cent of all illicit drug deaths. That number is more than double the number of fentanyl-detected deaths for the same timeframe last year.

Fentanyl overdoses have been steadily increasing in B.C. over the past five years. According to the Provincial Health Organization (PHO), the increase in drug overdose deaths for which fentanyl was present went from five per cent in 2012 to approximately 31 per cent in 2015. The BC Coroners Service continues to stress the importance of harm-reduction measures that need to be taken when using illicit drugs."

Intentional failure? Afghanistan drug production booms under NATO occupation





The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation expressed the opinion that the US anti-drug campaign in Afghanistan, which cost Washington $ 8.5 billion, has failed.

"We regret to state that the situation in Afghanistan in the field of drugs continues to deteriorate. According to expert estimates, in 2017 a sharp increase in drug production is expected. Drug production in Afghanistan has already exceeded last year's figures; about a third of the population is involved in the cultivation of opium poppy" said the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department of Information and Press.

The agency noted that Russian diplomats are at a loss as to why the United States and NATO, who have been present for many years in the region, can not help the government of the country in the fight against drug production.

"John Sopko (Special US Gen. Prospector for the reconstruction of Afghanistan) informed of the $ 8.5 billion spent by Washington on the anti-drug campaign in Afghanistan - which directly points to its failure," concluded the Russian Foreign Ministry."

An obvious conclusion readers of the above can draw is that the US and NATO are not interested in "helping the government of the country in the fight against drug production."  In fact, it is the undeclared mandate of the West to support and build the CIA run Afghanistan drug trade.  Another obvious conclusion is that the West is trying to rid the cities of "undesirables" by killing them off en masse with deadly drugs, while puppet politicians look the other way.  The less obvious conclusion is that the West is being run by diabolical entities who get a kick out of mass murder--and the money they can reap from it.
