We all know the US has been involved in military movements all over the world. This is an interesting record about the way heroin production in Afghanistan increased after the US invaded it.

After a few years of occupation from the US, afghanistan now produces 90% of the heroin in the world. That's to show you how the people who run the CIA operate. The CIA is the biggest drug producer in the world.

Funny how the US invaded right after the Taliban banned poppy growing. Definitely not a coincidence

All part of the plan. You need a steady supply of drugs to addict and imprison anyone who might revolt.

And how do we measure how much heroin is produced? I mean, since it's technically illegal and a big secret?

I remember in around 04', them handing out bags of poppies to the farmer's after they had 'conquered' Afghanistan.
