For 20 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the socialist community of states of NATO, led by the U.S., has turned into the most powerful and influential supranational structure of modernity. Today, the organization that accumulates the powerful political, economic, intelligence and military resources to act, as before, in the interests of the financial International, along with the western shadow structures. Only if the Cold War, its acquisitive interests and hegemonic ambitions were balanced by another force, especially by the Warsaw Pact and the combat-ready — Soviet — army, the 90-ies of the last century, the situation changed. Now NATO is without counterweight, ready to crush the national dignity and sovereignty of any country that has fallen into a zone of its interests, razed the historic monuments and blossoming of the city, doomed to misery of hundreds of thousands of people in different parts of the world. NATO today — it's not just a global policeman, but also the most dangerous, sophisticated attacker.
Aggressive and destructive nature of the alliance requires closely monitor all of its initiatives, the more strategic plans. At the last 20-21 May in Chicago next NATO summit discussed the expansion of the zone of influence alliance: European missile defense system, the so-called policy of "open doors" to strengthen the network of partners around the world. The summit was attended, among others, the Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Moldova. Although candidates for membership in the alliance — Georgia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina — this time, NATO did not, the installation on the global expansion of the North Atlantic center of power is not changed. Significantly also an invitation to the NATO summit (first time!) Presidents of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. However, after Russian President Vladimir Putin heads of these four countries have refused to go to Chicago, but was sent in his place of Ministers of Foreign Affairs (1).
Special arrogance on the part of NATO soldiers looked discuss Russian-Georgian relations, or, as is listed in the documents of the summit, "increase Russian military presence on Georgian territory." "Georgian territory" refer to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In turn, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a meeting of foreign ministers of NATO once again repeated the call to abandon the Russian recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia (2).
However, the main subject of discussion was the strategy of NATO action in Afghanistan. This issue was so important that journalists dubbed the Chicago meeting of the "Afghan summit." Why is it so important for the direction of NATO? I dare say that it is not only and not so much in the organization of the withdrawal of the coalition. I am convinced in this event and that can not go unnoticed. In Moscow, the publisher "Kuchkovo field," just a few days before the Chicago summit for the first time in Russian were published two great books — American PD Scott's "Drugs, Oil and War. The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina "and the Swiss D. Ganser," NATO's Secret Armies. "Operation Gladio" and terrorism in Western Europe. " In front of us — well-documented long-term exposure of NATO to create terrorist networks, drug trafficking, arms trafficking.
Let us look at the facts.
So, at the summit in Chicago Alliance decided "not to hurry with the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan." This was on the eve of the summit NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Jesuit stressing that the alliance "will continue to contribute to the security of the Central Asian republic, to prepare the Afghan war" (3). NATO member countries have expressed readiness for 10 years (this is to start with, and we'll see) fund 228000th Afghan army, allocating $ 4.1 billion annually. (!) And more than a third of the funds will come from the U.S. Treasury. Why would such an extravagance?
Particularly odd, if not dissonant, it looks at the background of the decision adopted by the austerity measures and the so-called "Smart defense", in which the now "all NATO peace" have to chip in for the purchase of weapons and more efficient use of military budgets of European NATO member states, to the dismay of Washington who continue to "lose weight" from year to year. " On explicit budgetary imbalances in collective action Rasmussen spoke very diplomatically: "We have agreed to implement the renewed culture of cooperation, in which the country will be able to get it together, they can not afford it alone" (4). However, whatever the streamlined formulation are applied, the essence remains the same: money to meet the growing appetite of the NATO military is not enough, but it turns out, Afghanistan — this is a special case.
Another confirmation of the importance of the Afghan direction for America and its allies are Washington's constant assurances that "the American presence in Afghanistan will continue even after 2014," when it is planned to complete the withdrawal 132000th Military Housing Coalition. It turns out that "the strategic partnership agreement between the U.S. and Afghanistan requires a residual presence of U.S. troops after 2014 as a consultant" (5). What for?
The devil, as always, is in the details. And a couple of details through the work of PD Scott D. Ganser now do not hide. In addition to the geo-strategic and geo-political interests in Afghanistan are intertwined interests are not just economic, but purely criminal, economic, namely, drugs and oil. According to Peter Dale Scott, "the drug mafia has now become an influential factor in determining the course of political processes in all the continents of the Earth. Time after time, the U.S. employ the same scheme on which to wage war in some oil-rich region activated different potential allies, or otherwise related to illicit drug trafficking "(6), which effectively become" narkosoyuznikami "of the U.S..
"Moreover, as being drawn into the conflict Washington is beginning to work not so much" over ", but in the interest of those" narkosoyuznikov ", which was originally supposed to only use".
Similar Afghanistan is a situation in Colombia, where the U.S. is officially at war with the drug mafia. "In reality, there are the biggest drug dealers are exactly the militant groups who are also our partners (amerikanskih. — EP) allies, ie Colombian army. " On top of that, by themselves, these groups of Colombian guerrillas — direct descendants of another "masterpiece" of the CIA: terrorists, fostered by running against the "Left". " That is, in Colombia and Afghanistan, Washington now has to contend with his own brainchild unbelted. There is no doubt that the same scenario will happen in another narco-state, this time the European — in Kosovo.
The situation in Colombia is one repeats the one that exists in Afghanistan — "the country through the territory of which the U.S. energy company UNOCAL back in 1998 intended to reach a new oil and gas pipelines." Here, as in Colombia, in the war against Osama bin Laden and "Al Qaeda" — also drug dealers, former U.S. allies, trained and equipped by the CIA, the Americans took recourse to his other "narkosoyuznikov" — elements of "Northern Alliance." In the pursuit of bin Laden NATO defeated him allied Afghan movement "Taliban" (despite the fact that in 2000 the Taliban have carried out a complete ban on the cultivation of the opium poppy territory under their control), again using the "Northern Alliance" (in whose territory at the same time flourishing opium makovodstvo) (7).
By the way, PD Scott points out that "even if the ban on the cultivation and trafficking of opium poppy in Afghanistan observed, it is safe to assume that the decline in production in Afghanistan would be followed by its growth in neighboring areas, such as in Tajikistan or Kyrgyzstan." Companion "volume growth of drug trafficking would be a destabilization of the political situation in these countries (none of which are already can not boast a particularly stable)" (8).
I note that it was written in 2003. Unfortunately, in the Russian language book Scott — Professor of the University of Berkeley (California), a former Canadian diplomat — was translated only in nine (!) Years. It is regrettable that interested in concealing information exposing it for so long succeeded, but all the same thing in another. Books Scott Ganser not reveal the true face of peace, but narkotvorcheskoy, terrorotvorcheskoy organization called NATO. And the urgency of these books do not lose. Invitation to four presidents of the Central Asian republics to the summit in Chicago fits into the logic of the creation of zones of drug trafficking along or near the energy routes, and to influence by drug traffickers on the political situation in the region. After all, the main drug trafficking routes from Afghanistan pass through Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, and from there — straight in Russia.
Assessing NATO's activities today, it should be remembered that the active use of the technique of "work" with the mafias and the military intelligence services of the USA practiced since the end of World War II. Almost a textbook example of the shadow of U.S. policy establishment, based on the support of the leaders of the mob, the CIA is a collaboration with Vito Genovese — one of the American Mafia dons — for its own purposes in Italy. After "Don Vito" "did the trick", he was in prison for drug trafficking organization, where he died of a heart attack in 1969. Similarly used, then physically eliminated other narkosoyuzniki U.S. and NATO — Osama bin Laden and Ahmed Karzai shaft. There is no doubt that a similar fate awaits the drug dealers like Kosovo Hashim Thaci and Ramush Haradinaj. "Black label" they have already been sent — one report by Dick Marty, to another — repeated call to The Hague.
As for NATO's involvement in terrorist activities in the world today, the organization and 'consulting' terrorist groups, even in this area, the alliance a great experience. First NATO secret armies, intended for terrorist activities, created and operated in Western Europe after the war. Upon accession to NATO, European leaders signed a secret protocols that require their governments to "ensure an inner orientation to the West unit by any means, even if the electorate shows other preferences" (9). This well-kept secret United States since the Second World War, today, thanks to the dedicated efforts of scientists and journalists, known under the code name — "Operation Gladio".
But back to the narkotvorchestvu NATO. "Narcotic" factor in the background of the NATO intervention, as a rule, always complemented by the "oil". Agreement between the United States and Saudi Arabia concluded immediately after the Second World War on the basis of the so-called "Quincy agreement" (10), allowed America to occupy a dominant position in the global system of production and trade of oil. Since the "Truman Doctrine" all American geopolitics was based on the "oil" foundation. "As a result of what was originally conceived as a way to curb ambitions of the Soviet Union, gradually developed into a blatant desire to control the oil resources of the world. In turn, the "pursuit of oil" progressively more distorted the economy of the U.S., bringing the imbalance in economic relations and strengthening the dependence of businesses on orders to ensure the military campaigns in remote parts of the world, which the U.S. does not operate in the state. Afghanistan — just one of the examples. Cases with Asian countries eloquently show how, becoming more militant, America is forced to rely on the more serious the aid of allies who are actively involved in the global drug trade "(11).
The exclusive role of the drug trade in world politics, beginning with the Opium Wars of the nineteenth century., Due to the fact that it allows us to solve several problems at once. Drug traffic allows, first, to destabilize the country and even entire regions — the "Golden Triangle" (Burma, Laos, Thailand), "Golden Crescent" (Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan). Second, to control the political elite of countries included in the drug business. Third, control the population, planting it on the needle. Fourth, to justify its military and political presence in the fight against drug trafficking and terrorism as its consequence. Finally, it is not the last — to make good on this.
The latter is worth a special mention. According to a United Nations report in 2011, "the global market (only! — EP) opiates in 2009 was estimated at $ 68 billion, of which $ 61 billion accounted for heroin. Heroin prices vary considerably. Although Afghanistan prices in 2010 increased the rate of one gram of there for less than four dollars. In Western and Central Europe, consumers are paying 40 to $ 100 per gram in the United States and northern Europe — 170-200 USD per gram, while in Australia the price reaches 230-370 USD. Afghan farmers earned in 2010 about 440 million U.S. dollars, while the greatest profits were organized criminal groups in the major consuming countries "(12). And I'd add — those who organize and "roof" of the entire process. Given the growth of drug production in Afghanistan, which accounted for after the establishment there of the presence of coalition forces accounted for up to 90% of all heroin in the world (by the way, according to the UN, the proceeds from the sale of opium in Afghanistan only in 2011 grew by 133%) (13) , obvious direct link presence in the country of the coalition forces and drug trafficking. So why rush into withdrawal if they control the "gold mine" of the "Golden Crescent"? And is not tuned to control drug trafficking scheme requires American "consultants"? As for the "moral" nuisance — a drug hundreds of people die every year — this is not a NATO people. It's not their burden. As they say, "just business — nothing personal."
Narkotvorcheskaya activities of the U.S. and NATO as a structure controlled by the Americans most directly associated with the expansion of the alliance and the creation of major U.S. bases in the protectorates, created in the path of drugs or in the immediate vicinity of the pipeline. The most glaring example — "subject to surveillance state" of Kosovo. On the one hand, covered by U.S. and NATO Kosovo drug dealers provide trouble-free transportation of drugs from Afghanistan to Europe via the "Balkan route" (14). "Every month through the hands of Albanian drug dealers are from four to six tons of heroin produced from Afghan raw materials, and the revenue from criminal gangs trafficking in deadly potion of two billion dollars. According to the UN, only to Europe, which is one of the main recipients of Afghan opiates is delivered about 150 tons of heroin annually, of which 35-40 tons are for Russia. Albanian mafia controls in the stream 75% of the supply of heroin to Western Europe and about 50% of deliveries in the United States "(15).
On the other hand, Kosovo with its major U.S. military bases — Bondstill and Film City — is in the immediate vicinity of the pipeline routes such as the "South Stream" and "Nabucco". How is this drug state can threaten one another and favor, I think, is obvious.
Unfortunately, the evidence of the involvement of the U.S. and NATO in the drug trade a lot. All those interested in this terrible parapolitikoy as "a special way of conducting political affairs in a roundabout way, through conspiracies and deceit" (16), I urge to read books by Peter D. Scott and Daniele Ganser.
U.S. has never fought a war against drugs, but always fought a war in which the drugs were used by them as a weapon. And while there will be a NATO throughout the world will continue to increase the volume of drug production and drug trafficking. Also in Afghanistan until 2001 — before the arrival of NATO — the industrial production of opiates did not exist. As for the Summit in Chicago, it is clear that in the truest sense of the U.S. and NATO in Afghanistan will not go away. The response to the project of creation of the Eurasian Union elected a policy of further "expansion" of NATO, and therefore, there will be an inevitable increase in drug trafficking and terrorism.

Among the Albanian organized crime groups that control the drug trade, is considered the most powerful drug cartel Albanian heroin — Camille. It is the fifth largest community of its kind in the world and has more than 500 million euros in annual revenue. For the supply of heroin to Europe are responsible for about 30 Albanian drug clans, each controlling "their" area of drug trafficking.
