Obama, Afghanistan, and Heroin?

We can't pin the blame for any one problem on any one President.

When Ronald Reagan was president, I recall him holding crack cocaine rocks and a crack pipe in his hands on national live television. I thought then to myself, "Why isn't this guy (Reagan) being arrested for having illegal narcotics and paraphernalia?" as he didn't have police officers with him supervising his handling "evidence".

At the time Ronald Reagan was playing his acting part looking like he cared about the drug epidemic during the "Pretend War on Drugs" and Nancy Reagan was saying, "Just say no", Ronny, Ollie North, and others were making sure CIA and military transport airplanes were bringing in as much cocaine into the US, as was possible, to fund illegal wars, assassinations, covert operations, illegal domestic and international spying, and for paying out hush money and bribes. There is plenty of information on Iran/Contra.

The war profiteers are still buying exotic vacations houses all over the world paid for with the blood of others.

When the US had "boots on the ground" in Afghanistan, suddenly heroin became cheaper, stronger, and more plentiful in the world. Do the math.

So, If US President Obama wants to concentrate on having military control of Afghanistan, not North Korea or nations without oil, drugs, and natural resources who present real problems to the world, what does that say on what the real agenda is?

To be a lawyer, you have to belong to a secret society even before leaving law school. Favors are owed, connections are made, and the education, unique language of a separate society, and the rules of being toasted if you tell, are planted for life.

I would like to see Obama act as advertised. Only time will tell.
