How is it that...

911? The Bush-Laden regime is walking on hollow gound- Only the false story
about 911 is holding them up! What is there to support the "official report"?
Take the one question quiz.


Here is the question:

Given the unprecidented increases in security implemented since 9/11, why has the
flow of illegal drugs into the US not been stopped or significantly reduced?


Comment:

How much cocaine and heroin has crossed the US border since 9/11? One would think that the
flow of drugs would have been reduced if not practically eliminated. Where are the headlines?

"Increased security from 'War on Terror' drastically reduces illegal drug flow across border"

or

"'War on Terror' bolsters 'War on Drugs'.

In fact, has there been any effect from the so called 'War on Terror' on the inflow of illegal drugs
into the United States? If a drug runner can get through with a kilo of heroin, a terrorist could get through
with a kilo of anthrax, right? This leaves only two logical conclusions:

The 'War on Terror' is a total failure in that it cannot even stop drugs from coming across the border.

or

There is something we do not know about how drugs are being brought into this country.

The same security precautions are used to fight both of the so called wars, and the 'War of Terror' has
caused all of these security areas to be increased to unprecedented levels. Ah but the drugs keep
coming in just as they always have despite the increases in security. What is really going on?

Ask this question to everyone who will listen. Write your Congress person and ask them this question. If you cannot get
a reasonable, logical answer, ask yourself what then are you getting for the billions in tax dollars being
spent to fight these "wars"?

The drug trade was temporarily halted after 9/11 but with the reopening of borders and whatnot things readjusted themselves

Your still right to question though

Drugs are necessary for our economic system 12.Aug.2002 13:10

Without the drug trade our economy would not function. So, our government is not going to completely stop drug traficking.

Sure, there will be scapegoats made, the occasional huge bust on the border, but if you remove the drugs you have a very angry underclass.

It is well documented that the US goverment participates in smuggling.

The drug war is a false war and one that should end. Even major corporate news outlets have begun questioning it.

And I'm sorry, but the war on terror is a bigger joke than the war on drugs. More like "war for oil" or "war for imperialism."

I completely agree - we should all contact our congress people and ask them why our $ are being spent on false wars.

Unfortunately, we do not control our government anymore. They control us.

the border

Temporarily stopped the drug trade!?! Where are all the
$billions going to protect us from so called terrorists?
And they can't even make any progress on the "war on drugs"
NOW!! The war on terror is a disaster for America and the
whole world. Bush needs to be impeached immediately!
