Absurdities for the masses.

"creating chaos and instability"

2004 Congressional Research Service report to Congress, "Illicit Drugs and the Terrorist Threat: Causal Links and Implications for Domestic Drug Control Policy"

"The international traffic in illicit drugs contributes to terrorist risk through at least five mechanisms: supplying cash, creating chaos and instability, supporting corruption, providing “cover” and sustaining common infrastructures for illicit activity, and competing for law enforcement and intelligence attention. Of these, cash and chaos are likely to be the two most important."

Conclusion: "American drug policy is not, and should not be, driven entirely, or even primarily, by the need to reduce the contribution of drug abuse to our vulnerability to terrorist action. There are too many other goals to be served by the drug abuse control effort."

Violent crime on our streets, stateless terrorism and increased chaos and instability in the world are acceptable collateral damage of the drug war policy.

Interesting, reminds me of President Reagan and the drug running done by Oliver North in support of the Nicaraguan Contras. The more things change the more they stay the same. I guess the real question is......who do you call a terrorist?

The Terrorists are certainly not the poor put-upon and misunderstood Islamist fascists of the Religion of Peace.

Thank you for your visit and your nice comment; and also for that illuminating snippet from some Gov policy paper. If only everybody in America would be aware of that.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
more drug war violence

more kids addicted to drugs
terrorists need money too

The War-On-Drugs-Without-Powerful-Lobbies is money well spent.


Sorry. Sometimes I get carried away.
