Afghanistan produced record levels of opium in 2013 – despite nearly $7 billion spent by the U.S. to combat the problem, according to a sobering United Nations report out Wednesday.

For the third year in a row, opium cultivation has increased across Afghanistan, reversing earlier gains from a decade-long international and Afghan government effort to combat the drug trade, according to a United Nations report released on Monday.
Which will be the first? Israel?
Surely not! The USA’s foreign policy, its media and its political structures are completely corrupted by, and infected with, Zionism.

As U.S. military wage “deadly” war against the Taliban-Al qaeda regime in Afghanistan, the U.S. Treasury department has stepped up their efforts to disrupt the flow of billions of dollars from the Afghanistan heroin-opium trade that is illegally laundered throughout the country’s financial systems, money that U.S government say helps the Taliban to spread terror throughout the world and undercutting battlefield progress being made by the U.S. and allied forces.
First, this term, “New World Order” was a secret society term, and had been kept very private and very much out of the public eye. The last time a major politician proclaimed this term was when Adolf Hitler was running for office in the late 1920′s and early 1930′s. My research, still in the infant stages in 1991, told me that the occult definition of New World Order is “The Kingdom of the New Age Christ”. Hitler thought he was that Christ, and he and his fellow Satanists at the Thule Society regularly held rituals in which they called forth the Spirit of Antichrist into him.

US Army General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had to flee the country to save his life when Afghan Taliban carried out attack on US’s controlled highly protected Bagram Air Base on August 21, 2012. General Dempsey escaped an attempt on his life but his aircraft which was directly hit got damaged.

The Pakistani Islamic extremist groups have denied any link with the doctor Shakeel Afridi who helped the CIA to track down Osama Bin Laden to Abbottabad and that it ’was sentenced to 33 years in prison.
Sakhr al-Taifi, considered the ’number two’ of al Qaeda in Afghanistan,was killed in a military operation in the eastern province of Kunar. This was announced today in Kabul, the International Security AssistanceForce (ISAF, under NATO command).
“We know that (bin Laden) has over the years tried to acquire weapons of mass destruction, both biological and chemical weapons, ” Cheney told PBS television.
The cases of anthrax in Florida and New York are “suspicious” though there is not enough evidence to link them with bin Laden, he said.

KONY 2012 is a viral sensation that swept the entire world in less than 24 hours. Its main subject is the African rebel leader Joseph Kony, his war crimes and the clearly defined “movement” to stop him. Countless celebrities have endorsed the movement, news sources have reported it and social media is buzzing with it. While the problem of guerrilla warfare and child soldiers has plagued Africa for decades, and severaldocumentaries have already been produced regarding the issue, this particular 29-minute video made managed to obtain mass exposure and support.
KONY 2012 is less of a documentary than it is a highly efficient infomercial that is tailor-made for the Facebook generation, using state-of-the-art marketing techniques to make its point. Young people like “underground movements” and want to feel like they are changing the world. KONY 2012 taps into these needs to bring about something that is not “hip” or “underground” at all: A military operation in Uganda. Not only that, it urges the participants of the movement to order stuff, to wear bracelets that are associated with an online profile and to record their actions in social media. This makes KONY 2012 the first artificially created movement that is fully track-able, monitor-able and quantifiable by those who engendered it. In other words, what appears to be a movement “from the people” is actually a new way for the elite to advance its agenda.
A Propaganda Experiment
The video begins with an interesting statement: “The next 27 minutes are an experiment. But in order for it to work, you have to pay attention”. It is an experiment as it tests a new, groundbreaking way to get an agenda accepted by the Facebook generation. In the past, when the government needed to justify the invasion of a country, the President would sit in front of the camera and tell the public why war should be declared in this area of the world. In the case of KONY, the military agenda is disguised as grassroots activism, where the US army entering Uganda would be perceived as a “victory of the people”, effectively reversing the communications model.
Due to the advent of social media, the above diagram has become a lot less effective to get a message across to the young generation. It is not CNN reports and the President addressing the nation anymore, it is about “liking” Facebook pages and viral YouTube videos. This is where messages now come across. Always studying, analyzing and exploiting the most effective ways to persuade public opinion, KONY 2012 appears to be an attempt to test out the effectiveness of a “viral” propaganda campaign. By creating this “movement” and making young people actually DEMAND the U.S. government intervene in Africa, the masterminds behind this campaign would manage the impossible: Reversing the propaganda model in order to make it emanate from the people. By doing so, the elite’s agenda is not only accepted by the masses, it is perceived as a victory by them.
When the war on Iraq was declared, a great portion of young Americans opposed the war. How is it they are now begging the government to send troops to Africa? A simple video, specifically conceived for the Facebook generation did the trick. As it is the case in most campaigns to justify a war, the first goal was to identify a bad guy.
Identifying the Bad Guy
I have absolutely no intention of defending Joseph Kony or to say “he’s not that bad”. He, along with many other guerrilla factions across Africa, has committed despicable atrocities. However, the problem of child soldiers has existed for decades and there are literally hundreds of Joseph Konys across the African continent. In some cases, some of the armies are actually funded by Western countries. If we would truly go to the root of the issue, we’d discover that Africa has been plagued with the problem of warring factions and rebel guerrillas ever since Western forces “liberated” their colonies and divided the continent of Africa according to Western interests. Indeed, instead of setting the boundaries of each country according to the geographic location of the ethnic groups and tribes that live there, countries were created according to the economic needs of colonizing forces such as Great Britain, France and others. The net result is: A bunch of artificial countries that each contain several tribes, ethnic groups, languages and religions. When one group takes power, the others are repressed, which leads to violence and rebellion. Add to the mix extreme poverty due to resources being siphoned out of Africa by Western countries and you’ve got a breeding ground for merciless warlords. As long as this problem exists, Joseph Konys will continue to emerge in Africa.
But the video mentions none of this. All it says is that arresting Kony would “make the world better”. KONY 2012 is all about identifying a bad guy, “making him famous” and have people demand his death by U.S. forces. Fixing the true cause of problems in the third world has never been on the Agenda. But picking out a “bad guy” to justify military action has always been part of it. If in the case of Saddam Hussein, “facts” (that ultimately proved false) were given to justify the invasion of Iraq. A different technique is being used with Kony, one that originates from advertising.
Any marketing specialist will tell you: “Facts don’t sell, emotions do”. The first part of KONY 2012 solely addresses emotions. It is about making the filmmaker likeable, showing gut-wrenching images of African kids in pain, in misery and in despair. Then, the turning point: Joseph Kony is the cause of all of this. Not centuries of exploitation and devastation by Western forces in Africa that lead to chaos, lawlessness and poverty. No, it’s Kony. That bastard. George Clooney is really mad at him right now. He even tweeted about it.
Defining the Agenda
KONY 2012 is a movement backed by some of the world’s most powerful entities and has precise goals. As the movie’s intro states, it is an experiment. It is an opportunity to create a movement that can be fully trackable, quantifiable and manageable through social media whose culmination is a U.S. military intervention in Uganda. The carrying out of this mission will not only be perceived as a victory, it will restore young people’s faith in democracy. What the members of this movement might not realize is that they are helping the advancement of the elite’s agenda towards a New World Order.
The second part of the movie let’s go of emotions and describes to the viewers what the elite expects from them. U.S. troops are already in Uganda, but, according to the movie, Kony “changed his tactics”… Damnit Kony, you and your sneaky tactics. Apparently, high tech satellites, unmanned drones and all kinds of radars are not enough to catch this guy. Nope, in order to catch him, a complicated plan, involving the purchase of an “Action Kit” and the registering an ID bracelet on a website is required. Makes sense.
Once the bracelet is registered, members can associate it with their Facebook account, which will keep track of all KONY-related actions. The end result is: every single member of KONY 2012 will be known, identified and easily tracked – with constantly updated information. All of this data will of course be collected, scrutinized and stored by those in charge.
Furthermore, members are asked to contribute a “few dollars a month” to TRI, an organization whose ultimate goal is American military intervention in Uganda.
To support the cause and to make it popular, a bunch of elite-sponsored artists and politicians have been enlisted, including Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Oprah, George Clooney, Bono, etc (omg! could be truth!). While some of them might be genuinely concerned about problems in Africa, most of them are pawns of the elite that are used to promote its agenda.
After going past the celebrities and the emotions, the end result of this campaign is simple and steeped in real politik: Since the fall of rival superpower USSR, Western forces have sought to bring down and to control regional powers around the world, mostly in third countries. Uganda is part of that plan. The same way the spectre of Bin Laden was used to invade Afghanistan, Kony is being used to enter Uganda.
KONY 2012 is a cleverly orchestrated campaign specifically aimed at today’s youth, the future citizens of the world. Using state-of-the-art techniques and new technologies, the campaign is a first attempt at “reverse propaganda”, where the agenda APPEARS to emanate from the people. By using emotions, irrational thoughts and superficial explanations, KONY 2012 attempts to trick well-meaning people, who desire to make a positive change in the world, to instead fuel a gigantic war machine that is controlled by the world’s elite.
Is KONY 2012 trying to eradicate child-soldiers or is it attempting to create a new kind of child-soldiers?
By Michael Martinez (CNN) – Eight American soldiers died of overdoses involving heroin, morphine or other opiates during deployments in Afghanistan in 2010 and 2011, according to U.S. Army investigative reports.
The overdoses were revealed in documents detailing how the Army investigated a total of 56 soldiers, including the eight who fell victim to overdoses, on suspicion of possessing, using or distributing heroin and other opiates.
At the same time, heroin use apparently is on the rise in the Army overall, as military statistics show that the number of soldiers testing positive for heroin has grown from 10 instances in fiscal year 2002 to 116 in fiscal year 2010.
Army officials didn’t respond to repeated requests for comment on Saturday. But records from the service’s Criminal Investigation Command, obtained by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, provided glimpses into how soldiers bought drugs from Afghan juveniles, an Afghan interpreter and in one case, an employee of a Defense Department contractor, who was eventually fired.
The drug use is occurring in a country that is estimated to supply more than 90% of the world’s opium, and the Taliban insurgency is believed to be stockpiling the drug to finance their activities, according to a 2009 U.N. study. While the records show some soldiers using heroin, much of the opiate abuse by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan involves prescription drugs such Percocet, the Army documents show.
The symbol that has inspired the name Rothschild or “Red Shield” (Red Shield) is the six-pointed star that appears on the flag of the same state of Israel.
Up to 1760 the Rothschilds were known as “Bauer“, where the banker Mayer Amschel Bauer changed his family name to Rothschild. Many families “Jewish” have changed their names, often to hide the true origins, and between these there are the Rockefellers, once Rockenfelder, and Roosevelt, once Rosenfelt. The Rothschild name is derived from German words meaning “red” (Rot) and “sign” or “emblem” (Shild), and refer to the red symbol over the entrance of their house in Frankfurt. The symbol was a hexagram, also known as the Seal of Solomon or Star of David, and would become the symbol on the flag of the state of Israel, created by the Rothschilds. Until he was adopted by the Rothschilds, this was not considered a symbol jew, and you can find in many other cultures and locations. Among the other various groups and populations was used by Arab Magicians, by druids and satanists. One was found on the floor of an ancient Muslim mosque in 1200 years, near modern Tel Aviv. The “sign” of Rothschild is on the Israeli flag because that is their feudal kingdom. And ‘their creation, and they have controlled since the beginning.
Every war is started by a lie!!
- The story of babies torn from incubators by Iraqi soldiers during the first Gulf War is the latest demonstration of a principle long understood by propagandists, that a lie repeated many times ends up being accepted as truth.
The blurring of boundaries between truth and myth is certainly not started with the Bush administration. The misinformation was part of the war at least since the days of Alexander the Great, who disseminava large shells along the path of his troops in retreat, the enemy into believing that his soldiers were giants.
The trick anecdote about Alexander the Great is usually told the soldiers in the first lesson of training in psychological operations (often called “psyops”).
In 1998 the U.S. Air Force document, titled Information Operations, states that “Information Operations are applied across the range of military operations, from peacekeeping to full conflict … it is important to emphasize that the Information warfare is a formula that is implemented in all Air Force activities, from peace to war in order to enable the effective execution of all tasks … The execution of information operations in the aeronautical, space and cyberspace across all aspects of the conflict “(note the use of” doublespeak “[or" dual language ", in the context of the terms" peace "and" military operations ").
The document contains sections entitled Information Operations "psychological operations", "electronic warfare", "information attack", and "military deception".
In today's world, it declares: "the growing information infrastructure transcends industry, media, military, and governmental and nongovernmental entities involved. And 'characterized by a fusion of military and civilian networks and technologies ... In fact, a newsletter, a press diplomatic or military message ordering the execution of an operation, all depend on [global information infrastructure]. “
In this context, the psyops “are designed to convey selected information and clues to the leaders and foreign audiences, in order to influence their emotions, stimuli, motives, objective and ultimately the behavior,” while “military deception confuses opponents , leading them to act according to the objective of its creators. “
In practice, the document says, quoting the Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu, “all operations of war are based on deception”.
NEW YORK – Smiling, some American soldiers appear beside the mangled bodies of Afghan insurgents, allegedly died while preparing explosive devices: are the pictures that the Los Angeles Times published today (HERE IS THE IMAGE OF THE LOS ANGELES TIMES warning this link contains images terrified that can damage your sensibilities, for how long we allow this slaughter … ENOUGH!) and which in all probability ‘exacerbate further relations between the NATO forces in Afghanistan and the authorities’ Afghan. The newspaper says that despite pressure from the authorities that he had ‘U.S. military has decided to publish two of the 18 pictures of which he’ entered into possession. The most ‘shocking shows two U.S. soldiers near two Afghan police officers who take their feet off the ground for two bare legs amputated and bleeding badly. In the other we see a soldier in the foreground smiling while behind him his companion looks at the corpse of a man who has his eyes wide open. The Los Angeles Times writes that in the other photos you can see two soldiers posing argue that the hand of a corpse with his middle finger raised, and also a band that says ‘Zombie Hunter’ (‘zombie hunters’). The newspaper writes that it is shots of 2010 and had them by the same soldiers who belong 82/ma Airborne Division soldiers portrayed in the photos, which have indicated they would like ‘to draw attention to problems of safety of two bases in Afghanistan. ” Lay with corpses for photographs for other than official purposes is a violation of military procedures,” said an Army spokesman, George Wright. An investigation of the incident and ‘was already’ started, while Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has already ‘expressed” firmly” his sentence.
OBAMA ORDERS INVESTIGATION ON PHOTO U.S. SOLDIERS – President Barack Obama said on the issue of U.S. soldiers posing next to the corpses of insurgents Afghan investigation must be initiated and those responsible must answer for it eventually. This was announced by the White House.
Panetta; EXCUSES FOR PICTURES, CRAZY BEHAVIOUR – The U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta expressed his apologies for the photos depicting U.S. soldiers near bodies of dead Afghans. In Brussels, Panetta denounced the “insane behavior, unacceptable.”
“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
God does not approve of guns or warfare, nor do His true Christian followers. However, it is important to understand another factor in the coming Time of Trouble, namely, the Planned Destruction of the U.S. Military.
The U.S. Military is being destroyed from the inside. The Zionist Jews and their Neo-con agents, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Dov Zakheim and others, working from behind the scenes through the out-in-front puppets of the last administration, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Condoleeza Rice, as well as those of the present administration, puppets President Barack Obama , Secretary of State Hillary Clinton , have a sophisticated plan to destroy our military without a shot – from a gun, that is.
A new recruit to the Armed Forces receives a minimum of 10 vaccines – and these 10 are given 3 times – for a total of 30 vaccines received. And the vaccines often are combined and given in one or 2 shots, meaning a recruit will get between 5 and 10 vaccines in one injection. Medical studies have shown that the more vaccines a person is given in combination, the more dangerous they are to the recipient.
And these are only the ones that the military “admits” they are giving to the new recruits. There are many rumors that new untested vaccines are given to these young men and women, without their knowledge or consent. They are nothing more than involuntary research subjects – otherwise known as “guinea pigs.”
Gulf War Syndrome that has 1) made thousands of military personnel terribly ill, 2) is contagious, having been transferred to the man or woman’s spouse, and 3) has caused horrendous birth defects in their babies, appears to be caused by a combination of experimental vaccines given to the troops, coupled with exposure to depleted uranium.
At the base of the terrible surge, the rising price of opium on the market, which would prompt farmers to expand plantings of 7% in a given anno.Un disturbing, especially considering that Afghanistan, alone, is who produced 90% of all opium in circulation and that last year the tons of “drug Poppy” produced in the country rose to 5,800.
The survey, organized by ‘UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime), said that the cultivation of the poppy crop has reached 131mila hectares in 2011 and that, compared with 14 last year, we are now 17 Afghan provinces concerned by this type of cultivation.
According to the Observatory Afghanistan “Approximately 78% of the crop is concentrated in the southern Afghan provinces, the heart of the rebellion led by the Taliban. Another 17% is produced in the remote and lawless regions to the south-west, under the influence of the revolt and out of the reach of the central government. This – the report highlights – confirms the link between insecurity and poppy cultivation observed since 2007. “
The lack of security in the countryside and the total instability of the country, which for ten years exactly is the theater of war missions totally ineffective is a factor widely exploited by drug traffickers, who are willing to provide protection to growers and funds.
A weighed on the increase of drug crops, also the total lack of government action and agricultural policies designed to convert the type of crops, which lack, however, only increases the already dire social gap within the country.
OK NOW WE SEE WHAT IS GOING ON IN AFGHANISTAN …..
