Why Are We Losing The War On Drugs

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

When is society going to sit down and ask why we are losing the war on drugs? Trillions of dollars have been spent on drug abuse prevention, and abuse continues to grow.

Last night I decided to relax after work, so I got on youtube to watch some videos. While browsing through various documentaries I came across a Vice video about Krokodil.

If you do not know what Krokodil is, you better hope this terrible drug stays contained in Russia. Krokodil eats the flesh off its victims; its a combination of over the counter drugs and gasoline.

Why does Russia have a drug problem? Part of it stems back to the Russian-Afghan war of the 1980s. In order to buy weapons, the people of Afghanistan started growing poppy, which is used to make heroin. The heroin was then sold to the Russians.

Its kind of ironic that the Russians helped defeat themselves by buying heroin, and the U.S. is helping fund radical terrorist by buying gasoline from OPEC.

Worried about a war with Iran

Guys and gals, I am worried about the U.S. attacking Iran, and then the crap hitting the fan.

Let me rephrase that, I am worried about how Russia and china will react if Iran is attacked.

* During this article china will not be capitalized. As I have no respect for a communist government that oppresses its people.

Russia nor china want permanent U.S. bases in the middle east. An attack on Iran might be viewed as imperialism on part of the U.S. Meaning, we are encroaching closer and closer to Russia and china.

As Russia and china are backed into a corner, sooner or later something will have to give. If something gives, how well is the U.S. and the general public prepared for an all out war with a major world power?

Are the people ready to be rationed food?
Are the people ready to be rationed fuel?
Are the people ready to have their lives disrupted?
Can the U.S. afford another war?

As nations start to compete for resources, Iran is a gold mine.

Step 1 – demonize Iran so that the U.S. public think they have no other choice then to go to war. Its either go to war, or allow Iran to go nuclear.

Step 2 – invade Iran, enter into another decade long war in the middle east.

With the U.S. pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan, we need a way to replace the military bases we are losing. How are we going to replace those military bases? By invading Iran.
