Dope. Inc. Britain’s Opium War Against the World

Dope, Inc. Is Back in Print!

Oct. 21, 2010 (EIRNS)—Executive Intelligence Review is pleased to announce that the underground best-seller, Dope, Inc., first published by the LaRouche political movement in 1978, is back in print. The 320 page paperback, subtitled “Britain’s Opium War Against the World,” includes reprints from the 1992 third edition, and indepth studies from Executive Intelligence Review magazine, analyzing the scope and size of the international illegal drug-trafficking empire known as Dope, Inc.

Dope, Inc. was commissioned by Lyndon LaRouche, who laid out a war strategy against these London-based death merchants that would work, a war strategy that got considerable traction in the early 1980s. Appropriately, this new edition begins with LaRouche’s 1985 proposed multinational strategy against the drug-traffic in the Western hemisphere, presented in Mexico city in 1985, but never implemented. It also reviews Dope, Inc.’s expansion, including the drug wars being waged out of Afghanistan, and against Russia and Europe today.

This book represents a crucial weapon against the British Empire today, which uses its dope money to support its bankrupt financial system, and to stupefy and degrade populations worldwide.

This edition, published by Progressive Independent Media, is currently available in limited numbers, so there is no time to waste in buying yours today. The cost is $25 per book, with $4 for shipping and handling. It is available through store.larouchepub.com, and EIR’s national office, at 1-703-297-8434.

Plan Colombia Version 2.0

Wayne MADSEN | 23.06.2018 | WORLD / Americas

The election of Colombian narcotics syndicate- and death squad-linked Ivan Duque as president of Colombia will herald the second run of the Pentagon’s and Central Intelligence Agency’s discredited “Plan Colombia.” Plan Colombia saw the systematic murder of farm workers, labor activists, and indigenous peoples by Colombian right-wing paramilitary units like the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC) and Twelve Apostles, both linked to both former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe and the Medellin drug cartel.

The recent election of Uribe’s apprentice, Duque, threatens to unravel both the peace agreement signed between outgoing President Juan Manuel Santos and the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and current peace negotiations between the government and the leftist National Liberation Army (ELN). Duque defeated former Bogota mayor and leftist M-19 guerrilla leader Gustavo Petro on a platform of reneging on many of the stipulations in the peace accord worked out between outgoing president Juan Manuel Santos and FARC. Duque wants to prosecute FARC members who were amnestied under the peace deal but whom Duque and his paramilitary allies consider to be criminals. Santos received a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in hammering out a peace deal with FARC.

Uribe, who now holds a seat in the Colombian Senate and was term-limited to run again for president, is expected to rule Colombia as a puppet master holding Duque’s strings. Uribe is currently mired in political scandals arising from his use, while president, of illegally wiretapping his opponents and ongoing financial corruption, which is arising from Colombia’s growing coca yield.

Duque developed numerous contacts with right-wing Republican elements while working for the Inter-American Development Bank and attending both Georgetown University and American University in Washington, DC. Duque, who is 41, spent almost as much time living in Washington as he had in Colombia. Duque’s presidential election victory in Colombia involved campaign support provided by Farrow Colombia, a social media manipulation partner of the same company involved in Trump’s surprise election victory, Cambridge Analytica. A good portion of Duque’s support came from Colombia’s growing population of evangelical Christians, who are linked to parent evangelical operations in the United States. Working class traditional Roman Catholics, on the other hand, tended to favor Petro, who garnered 42 percent to Duque’s 54 percent.

Duque plans to re-instate an updated version of “Plan Colombia,” a program that will see an increase in joint operations between U.S. private military contractors and Colombian paramilitary units. The original Plan Colombia saw the U.S. and Colombia spray coca fields belonging to poor Colombian campesinos, while Uribe’s and Duque’s wealthy friends in the drug cartels grew coca and refined it into pure cocaine without interference from Bogota or the Central Intelligence Agency-sponsored private military contractors.

Duque is also a fan of the Italian philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli, writing a book titled, “Machiavelli in Colombia.” Duque’s fascination with Machiavelli is shared by Donald Trump. The two authoritarian leaders will undoubtedly agree to allow Colombia to be used as a base of operations from which to launch operations designed to overthrow the socialist governments of Venezuela and Nicaragua, which will further add to the northward migration of those seeking political asylum in the United States. Duque helped organize the filing of criminal charges against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro at the International Criminal Court in The Hague by 76 Colombian senators and 50 Chilean members of the Chilean Congress. All are affiliated with right-wing political parties.

An affectation for “the end justifies the means” policies championed by Machiavelli is not the only thing that bonds Duque to Trump. Duque’s mentor, Uribe, is a member of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club of billionaires in Palm Beach, Florida. Uribe reportedly joined the club, along with Andres Pastrana, Uribe’s predecessor as president of Colombia, to gain access to Trump on behalf of their own interests, which include narcotics money laundering. Duque’s father, Ivan Duque Escobar, served as the director of the National Registry of Civil Status during the administration of Pastrana. The close links between Conservative Party figures like Uribe, Pastrana, and Duque have turned Colombia into an oligarchy ruled by certain families who profit from the illegal drug trade.

The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) reported that Uribe was linked to narcotics activities in the United States and was close to the Medellin cartel that was once led by the late Pablo Escobar.

The DIA, in a 1991 CONFIDENTIAL NOFORN [Not Releasable to Foreign Nationals] WNINTEL [Warning: Intelligence Source and Methods Revealed] report, wrote: “Alvaro Uribe Velez – a Colombian politician and senator dedicated to collaboration with the Medellin cartel at high government levels. Uribe was linked to a business involved in narcotics activities in the U.S. His father was murdered in Colombia for his connection with the narcotics traffickers. Uribe has worked for the Medellin cartel and is a close personal friend of Pablo Escobar Gaviria. He has participated in Escobar’s political campaign to win the position of assistant parliamentarian to Jorge Ortega. Uribe has been one of the politicians, from the Senate, who has attacked all forms of the extradition treaty.”

The extradition treaty referenced in the report was the one with the U.S. that saw several Colombian narcotics chieftains extradited to stand trial in the United States for drug smuggling.

While he was president of Venezuela, the late Hugo Chavez accused Uribe of acting on behalf of U.S. jingoistic foreign policy in Latin America. Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in 2009, Chavez Uribe a “compulsive liar,” adding that Uribe started an arms race in Latin America by hosting seven U.S. military bases in Colombia and bombing Ecuador a year earlier. As the result of the Colombian attack on Ecuador, Quito expelled the Colombian ambassador and severed diplomatic relations with Uribe’s government, while moving Ecuadorian troops to the Colombian border.

The Colombian attack on Ecuador came as Chavez was trying to negotiate the release of more hostages held by FARC. In response, Chavez closed the Venezuelan embassy in Bogota and expelled the Colombian ambassador in response to Colombia’s violation of Ecuador’s sovereignty.

Under Duque’s Plan Colombia 2.0, renewed military operations against neighboring countries like Venezuela, Panama, and Ecuador can be expected. Renewed Israeli intelligence involvement with Plan Colombia can also be expected.

Under the original Plan Colombia, an Israeli security company linked to the Mossad, Global Comprehensive Security Transformation (Global CST), was involved in “Operation Strategic Leap” surveillance operations conducted by the governments of Uribe and Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli. A booster of Trump’s showcase hotel and condominium tower in Panama City, the Trump Ocean Club, Martinelli is now on trial in Panama for illegal wiretapping and financial corruption after being extradited by the United States.

During “Strategic Leap,” one CST employee, Shai Killman, was caught making copies of classified Colombian Defense Ministry documents and he was deported to Israel. CST employees in Peru were also caught in possession of classified Peruvian counter-insurgency documents.

After the exposure of Israeli chicanery in Colombia, the Colombian government rebranded the operation the “National Consolidation Plan (PNC),” which was free of Israeli involvement. With Duque in power in Bogota, with the extremely pro-Israeli Uribe pulling the puppet strings, Israeli intelligence operations will undoubtedly return to Colombia, with strong support from the Trump administration and its various Israeli agent-of-influence embeds in the White House and Departments of State, Justice, and Defense.

If Any Other Country Was Shooting Civilians Like Israel, The US Would Be Calling For Invasion By Now

idf shooting civilians

The death toll in Gaza increased dramatically on Monday as Israeli Defense Forces opened fire on thousands of Palestinian civilians, killing 41 and injuring at least 1,700, and the United States’ response served as a reminder that if the governments in Iran, Syria, North Korea or Russia had done the same thing, the U.S. would be calling for a full-scale invasion right now.

It is hypocrisy at its finest, especially considering the fact that the U.S. has a history of cheering on and aiding protests against foreign governments. In fact, when the mainstream media began sharing reports of protests in Iran in December 2017, President Trump took to Twitter to cheer on the dissidents.

“The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism,” Trump wrote, claiming that the United States was “watching very closely for human rights violations!

 

Big protests in Iran. The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism. Looks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!

Does that same logic not apply when thousands of Palestinians are standing up for their rights on the Gaza Strip, and the Israeli government is committing human rights violations? Trump’s silence is deafening, and it also serves as a reminder he has fallen into line with the same U.S. foreign policy standards that have been adopted and expressed by his predecessors.

When the U.S. launched its campaign to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, it went beyond just cheering on protesters, and it began launching multi-million-dollar programs to arm and train the protesters, even with the knowledge that many of them were extremists who would go on to strengthen radical groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

The U.S. has also looked the other way in Saudi Arabia where the government is accused of a host human rights violations—including fueling genocide in the poorest country in the Middle East—and it regularly executes civilians who have been accused of protesting, after denying them a fair trial.

The United States only seems to care about oppressive governments who commit human rights violations when those governments are not considered “close allies.” The double-standard is painfully evident in Gaza as the bloodiest day in months comes to a close.

Reports from the Health Ministry in Gaza claimed that several of the 41 Palestinians killed on Monday were teenagers, and as many as 1,700 civilians are now left suffering from injuries after Israeli Defense Forces opened fire on protests near Israel’s border fence.

This comes in addition to the dozens of Palestinians who have been killed and the thousands who have been wounded by Israeli sniper fire in recent weeks. While Israel has falsely claimed that every man or teenage boy who participated in the protests was a “militant” for Hamas, and deserved to die, there was one civilian death that was particularly notable.

Yaser Murtaja, a Palestinian photojournalist, was wearing a jacket that clearly said “PRESS” when he was shot in the chest and killed by an Israeli sniper on Friday. As The Intercept noted,

Either the Israeli sniper could not clearly see who was in the rifle scope—in which case the claim that the use of live fire is precise is shown to be untrue—or the soldier intentionally fired at a journalist, which is a war crime.

While Israel has justified the killings by claiming that their soldiers opened fire because the suspects “attempted to infiltrate” the Israel-Gaza border, a disturbing video was leaked last month that showed multiple Israeli men celebrating after a sniper targeted and shot a non-threatening man who was standing in a field on the other side of their border fence.

A man is seen standing motionless on the other side of the barrier as another man and a small child walk past him. Another man remarked, “I can’t see because of the wire” and then said, “there’s a little boy there,” noting the presence of the child.

The sniper then pulled the trigger and fired one shot, striking the Palestinian man who was standing still and was making no attempt to do anything that could have threatened the soldiers who had been observing him from a distance.

Cheers erupted from the Israelis after the Palestinian man was shot and then collapsed on the ground. The man filming the shooting can be heard saying, “Wow, what a video! Yes! Son of a bitch. What a video, here, run and get him out of there. Of course, I filmed it.”
