EIR Releases New Study on
`Britain's Dope, Inc.:
Marker for Humanity's New Dark Age'
March 2, 2009 (EIRNS)—For the first time in 13 years, Executive Intelligence Review magazine has released a new indepth study of the status of the deadly global enemy of mankind called Dope, Inc., the international drug cartel headquartered in London. EIR's 46-page blockbuster, editted by Ibero-American editor Dennis Small, appears in the February 27th edition of EIR Online.
As Small explains in his introductory survey of the growth over the last decade of the four major narcotic drug groups—opiates, marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamine-type stimulants—which now have a combined street sale value of over $800 billion per year, there are three pressing political reasons for the release of the study at this point.
The first is the fact that the global financial blowout is leading more and more to the expansion of drug money in the system; the second is the accelerated push at present by the drug lobby, headed by Nazi-trained mega-speculator George Soros, for legalization of narcotic drugs; and the third is the accelerating role of the drug trade in brutal narco-terrorism in such arenas as Afghanistan and Mexico—places where only an effective War on Drugs of the mode laid out by Lyndon LaRouche 25 to 30 years ago, can be effective in preventing total devastation.
Conceptually, EIR's approach continues the method outlined in its breakthrough 1978 book, "Dope, Inc.," which elaborated in historical depth, how the British Empire—now transformed into the globalized Anglo-Dutch financial system—imposed the drug trade, from the top down, in the interest of maintaining its political control over the world's population.
The major elements of the EIR package are the following:
- A survey of the major drug groups, featuring graphics showing the cultivation, eradication, and seizures of the major drug groups in various regions around the world.
- Area studies on Afghanistan, Mexico, and Russia.
- A profile of the activities of George Soros's drug legalization activities, both internationally (including in the banking system) and in the United States.
- A short refresher course on the original British Opium Wars.
- Excerpts from a report by the Russian-based Institute for Demography, Migration and Regional Development and the Development Movement, Moscow 2008, which outlines proposals for a new Russian policy for Afghanistan, based on promoting comprehensive economic development which would help that nation abandon the drug trade, and link up with its neighbors in major transport and other projects.
