As I said yesterday, intelligence operations are expensive. We already know the cost of wars, but very few understand the incredible costs required to maintain intelligence gathering networks and engage in covert operations.
Furthermore, governments like to keep their hands clean. They want to be able to say that the assassination of such and so was a complete surprise and none of their doing. This is part of why intelligence organizations like to have secret sources of income so that they can operate freely, without having to justify their actions.
Oh, and there’s this very interesting phrase:
Follow the money.
You find some very interesting people, when you do that.

The CIA and Chinese Heroin – Gladio Part 2

Before jumping into what the title talks about, I would like to go off on a tangent.
Just a few hours after posting my first article and video about Gladio, I saw this article about something disturbingly similar. The article is called:
Extortion by Rogue Police Gangs Is Booming in Bolsonaro’s Brazil – Bloomberg
Just as my article and video talked about something created for good that turned completely evil, here is an article about the creation of a security operation, tasked with protecting the population – that turned into a parasite that was killing that population.
Just like Gladio, this security force needed money to fund their operations, so they turned to crime to get that money. Here are four paragraphs that I grabbed from the article:
Militias—bands of rogue and off-duty police and other security officers—started operating in Rio’s impoverished western neighborhoods a few decades ago. Politicians either turned a blind eye or collaborated with the groups, which were ostensibly formed to drive out drug traffickers but mutated into mafia that charge for services such as security, cooking gas, internet access, and cable TV. These gangs are now active across Rio and 14 other cities in the state, affecting the lives of 2 million people, police say.
The militia operates an extensive protection racket, with fees ranging from $5 a month for a small house to $375 for large businesses. Recently it’s expanded into illegally developing land and selling smuggled cigarettes, which offer rich profits and lesser criminal penalties than drugs.
Police say militia members have infiltrated the mayor’s office and the employment agency. Armed, hooded men frequent the jobs center, according to two Itaboraí residents who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals. The militia demands a cut of workers’ salaries for employment, the people said.
“The rise of militias over the oil business is very worrisome,” says Helvio Rebeschini, an executive at Plural, a fuel distribution association. “There are militias operating a growing number of illegal gas stations, and Petrobras has also been a victim of growing oil theft on its oil pipelines.”
Brazil wanted to get rid of the illegal drugs that were flooding the streets of Brazil. The police weren’t big enough or strong enough to solve the problem by themselves. So, they turned to militias. The militias reduced the amount of heroin and cocaine on the streets of Brazil. But, they then became yet another problem that Brazil can’t handle.
Oh, and where did the drugs come from?
The article doesn’t say, but the conclusion of this piece tells you EXACTLY where those drugs come from.
So, let’s get to that Chinese Heroin.
It pains me to say this, but it looks like China deserved to be conquered by Mao Zedong. And, I’m not completely sure that I can blame Chiang Kai-Shek.
Some blame Chiang enthusiastically. Others claim that he was unable to control the warlords that were his generals. And, both sides in the discussion have an axe to grind, so I can’t be completely sure which is true. But, one thing is very, very clear:
Chiang Kai-Shek’s Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) was selling heroin to the US.
The irony is that Chiang Kai-Shek actually made made opioid abuse illegal in China and imposed draconian punishments upon addicts and especially on those selling the drugs. Those laws carried over to Taiwan – where being caught selling heroin was an automatic death sentence, until recently. But someone, somewhere, in the KMT – way back before they were kicked out of China – had a nice deal going with the ‘Green Circles Gang’ who was distributing heroin.
It was sort of like Nixon’s ‘War on Drugs’. On the one hand, you had the DEA putting small time dealers and users into prison, while the CIA was running heroin out of the Golden Triangle in Southeast Asia. And no, I don’t know if Nixon knew about what the CIA was doing.
How Chinese Heroin Started
Well, after the Communists launched their revolution in 1927, the government – led by the KMT and Chiang Kai-Shek – needed money to fight the Communists. And, when you are engaged in a civil war, gathering taxes is difficult. So, they sold opium.
By the way, what’s the difference between a Civil War and a Revolution?
You call it a revolution, when you win.
Anyway, Opium and then Heroin was being used by the KMT to get enough money to beat Mao’s Communists. And, as the KMT kept losing battles, they kept being pushed south. And, even further south.
Eventually, they wound up being split in two. The biggest part of the KMT was in Taiwan. The other… and you can guess where they wound up
…in what would become known as the Golden Triangle.
The KMT Golden Triangle
If you don’t know WHAT the ‘Golden Triangle’ is, it’s the mountainous area along the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Burma (now, Myanmar) associated with the production of heroin. And, it was THAT part of the KMT, under the command of General Li Mi, that created the Golden Triangle after they lost to the communists – by growing opium and converting it into heroin.
Who was shipping out the heroin?
The CIA. They brought weapons and materials in, via C-46 and C-47 transport planes and brought out heroin in their return flights.
Where was that heroin going?
Well let me ask you a different question:
When did America have her ‘heroin epidemics’?
Well, they say that there have been three of them in the latter half of the 20th century, but… actually …the past 70 years has been one long heroin epidemic. And, I think that you can figure out where that heroin was coming from during the early years of this epidemic, and who was bringing it in.
It was Chinese heroin from China that started the epidemic, and it was KMT heroin from the Golden Triangle that kept the epidemic going. And again, CIA airplanes were flying all that heroin into the US, and everywhere else in the world.
Triangulating In On The CIA
Now, this might seem just a little incredible to you, right at this moment. It’s hard to believe that the CIA would do something like this. But, let me offer a fact that will help you verify everything that I’m saying. Remember that the ‘Golden Triangle’ was the number one producer of heroin until… and you’ll probably guess…
…until after the American invasion of Afghanistan.
That’s right. After the American invasion of Afghanistan, the top producer of heroin switched from the ‘Golden Triangle’ to the ‘Golden Crescent’ – i.e., Afghanistan. And, about 90% of all the heroin on the streets of the world, comes from Afghanistan.
How did it get out of Afghanistan?
Well, I could leave it for you to guess, but let me help you think this through. Afghanistan is a land-locked country. So, ships are out. You could drive it out by truck, but there aren’t many roads out of Afghanistan. And, all of them are heavily monitored and controlled.
Then, there’s the venerable donkey. Oh yes, the donkey. Journalists love to weave tales of donkeys laden with barrels of poppy juice, trudging over the tortuous Hindu Kush mountains into Pakistan.
Right. Tens of thousands of tons of poppy juice shipped out by donkey. If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you. Furthermore, we already KNOW how the heroin is getting out of Afghanistan.
Via US cargo planes.
CIA cargo planes.
How ELSE are you going to get two and a half THOUSAND tons of heroin out of Afghanistan?
Remember that it takes many tons of poppy juice to get a ton of heroin.
Again, it’s a land-locked country, and the US controls the air. I think that you can do the math. I already have.
The CIA – The Biggest Drug Lord In The World
The point that you need to get is that the CIA (and the OSS before it) has been distributing heroin throughout the world from China, then the Golden Triangle, and then from Afghanistan, for more than 70 years.
They made trillions of dollars during those seven decades. And, they shipped thousands of tons of heroin around the world, every year, and destroyed the lives of millions upon millions of people and wrecked whole countries.
I’m just sorry that the history of Taiwan is stained by having had a role in this drug trade. The Taiwanese people themselves had no role. They didn’t even want the KMT, when they arrived on this island. And, the current government certainly didn’t have a role in this drug trade.
But, Chiang Kai-Shek?
Either he, or someone under him, definitely had a huge role. And, he didn’t break off ties with General Li in the Golden Triangle, when he should have known what Li was doing. I find it hard to believe that Chiang didn’t know. He was not a stupid man. I just hate the thought that he was a part of this.
Anyway, please understand that there could never have been a ‘heroin epidemic’ without the CIA. They caused this epidemic. They made it as bad as they could possibly make it – to make as much money as they could possibly make. And, they used at least some of that money to fund Gladio.
And, they started with Chinese Heroin.
