Trafficking Could Be Funding Military
For many years now the North
Korean military regime has been suspected of illegal drug
trafficking. According to a briefing released by the U.S.
Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, the
North Korean expansion of opium-poppy cultivation reported in
late summer of 1993 was believed to be linked to the
intensified efforts of the late Kim Il-sung and his son,
current North Korean President Kim Chong-il, to acquire hard
currency. The document goes on to say that some reporting has
charged that the establishment of a North Korean
opium-processing plant was intended to produce heroin and
morphine for sale and distribution by North Korean citizens
living abroad, particularly in Japan.
Additionally, the abstract of a
Congressional Research Service Document distributed by the
Penny Hill Press states that at least thirty documented
incidents, many involving arrest or detention of North Korean
diplomats, link North Korea to drug trafficking. The AP also
released a story on former North Korean military herbal
doctor Hur Chang Girl, who stated, "Each province in the
North has its own opium farm and the Workers' Party controls
the growing of opium and its export and uses the revenues as
its operating funds."
The extent of North Korea’s
opium operation hasn’t been fully investigated by the
U.S., at least nothing has been released to the public. The
substantial increase in the use of heroin and other opiate
derivatives over the last decade amounts to big money some
place, and the recent terrorist attacks, military maneuvers
and threats of war could very easily be the result of that
The fact that drug use sponsors
terrorism was unveiled with the Al-Queda links of trafficking
and the subsequently seized assets by the Federal Government.
It should come as no surprise then since the majority of the
hostility and corruption within our own boarders is caused by
drug use or the profits from drug sales. Why would it be
different outside the United States?
There is an obvious pattern here;
drugs are the primary cause of planetary disturbances.
Mind-altering substances, whether legal or illegal, disrupt a
person’s beingness and destroy ethics and morals. If we
can knock out the demand, the supply will be null and void
and our government can focus on actually taking care of the
people that pay for it. There won’t be a threat of war,
health care costs would go down, there wouldn’t be a
shortage of domestic and foreign peace keepers, divorce rate
would drop sharply as well as the unemployment rate, children
would have both parents while growing up and would actually
graduate from high school. This isn’t a dream world or
a utopia, it is simply how the world would easily operate if
the majority of our planetary population would focus efforts
on eradicating substance abuse.
There is at least one
organization dedicated to this task: Narconon Arrowhead.
Narconon Arrowhead is a drug rehabilitation and education
program part of an international network that uses the
workable methodology developed by American author and
humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
