The Soviet Orchestrated Global Drug Network
Continued from Issue No. 27
Our Lady at Fatima said: "If My requests are not heeded, Russia would spread its errors throughout the world..."
Not only are intellectual errors being spread by Communist Russia but also errors in how to live are being spread too. The result of these errors is drug addiction and death to many North American youths. It is important that we realize the source of these drug errors and the spiritual solution Our Lady told us we must take to stop this drug war.
We continue here the article (that was started in Issue No. 27) which demonstrates that Russia is the source for much of the drug abuse in America.

The Soviets went operational against the United States shortly after the Cuban Revolution. Raoul Castro visited Czechoslovakia in the early fall of 1960 in search of military aid and assistance. The Soviets directed the Czechs to work with the Cubans and pave the way for an eventual Soviet takeover of Cuba.
Cuba and Czechoslovakia signed an agreement whereby the Czechs would help the Cubans obtain military equipment, would train the Cubans in military operations, and would also set up Cuban intelligence and counterintelligence. Roughly 50% of the Czech advisors and intelligence agents that went to Cuba were actually Soviets operating under Czech cover. Within three years all Czechs in key positions would have been replaced by Soviets.
After the first Cubans were trained as intelligence agents, they received their first directions from Moscow: to begin infiltrating the United States and all Latin American countries and to begin the production and distribution of drugs and narcotics into the United States. The Czech advisors helped the Cubans initiate production and also assisted them in setting up transportation routes through Canada and Mexico, where the Czechs had good agent networks, into the United States.
In the winter of 1961 the Czech Defense Council received instructions from the Soviet Defense Council that the Cuban operation was to be expanded. Cuban intelligence was to infiltrate all the Latin American drug production and distribution networks. No sooner was this expansion underway than it was expanded again, this time with the Cubans directed to establish their own drug operations throughout Latin America. The initial targets in this expansion were Mexico, Panama, Colombia, and Argentina. The Czech intelligence services assisted in the Cuban operations and within a year were also directed to establish their own drug operations throughout Latin America. Other satellites that were also active in the expansion operation were Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, and, slightly later, East Germany. The participation of Soviet and Soviet-trained agents throughout Latin America in the expansion of the operation was formally coordinated at the Second Havana Conference in 1962.
As part of the drug operations, the participating intelligence services were directed to collect data on the corruption that accompanies the drug trade for future use by the Soviets in blackmail and agent recruiting. From the Soviet perspective, this data, and its use in a wide variety of intelligence tasks, was every bit as important as the societal consequences of drug usage or the moneys to be made. By the late 1960s, the Soviet-bloc intelligence services had active dossiers on over ten thousand corrupted individuals in positions of power through the Americas.

The drug and narcotics business was formally introduced to the Warsaw Pact strategic leadership at a secret meeting held in Moscow in the early fall of 1962. The meeting was convened to discuss economic problems. Midway through the meeting, Krushchev turned to the drug business. He first praised the Chinese for their imagination and operativeness. Then he emphasized the need for the Soviet-bloc intelligence services to become involved as rapidly as possible.
Krushchev carefully explained how the drug business would cripple the democratic societies while simultaneously generating much needed foreign exchange for intelligence operations. It would undermine the health and morale of the American soldiers and weaken the human factor in the defense situation, he said. Further, it would cripple the educational system. The American schools were high priority targets because this is where the future leaders of the bourgeoisie were to be found. Another high priority target Krushchev identified was the American work ethic, pride and loyalty. Finally, the drugs and narcotics would lead to a decrease in the influence of religions, and, he added, under certain conditions could be used to create chaos.
Following this meeting, the satellite leaders returned home and began to organize the narcotics trafficking. It is important to note that throughout the satellites and the Soviet Union, the drug business was accorded the highest secrecy controls. The documentation was carefully guarded. Most instructions, even those to the heads of agencies involved, were oral. Aside from members of the Soviet-bloc Defense Councils, and the first secretaries in local Communist parties in Latin America, very few people were informed about the operation.
Almost as soon as the satellite operations had begun, Krushchev decided that the implementation was not proceeding fast enough. He even admitted that he was partially to blame in being too cautious. Accordingly, in 1963 he instructed General Major Nikolai Savinkin, the deputy head of the Administrative Organs Department, to visit all the satellite countries and Cuba and prepare a coordinated plan to speed up the narcotics operation. Savinkin's plan was approved by the Soviet Defense Council and instructions were sent to all the satellites and Cuba.
The instructions that followed from the Soviet Defense Council dealt with the banks in different countries to be used to handle the income, the directions for research and development of more effective drugs, actions to accelerate the infiltration of the Latin American drug operations, contacts that would assist in the distribution, organization of transportation and disinformation and propaganda. The latter was of special importance, so much so that a special office was established in the Administrative Organs Department to oversee the activities and provide intelligence information for use by the propagandists. The objective of the propaganda was to place the blame for the narcotics problem in the West on society itself and reveal corruption to discredit agencies and people considered hostile to Soviet policy. Following special instructions received from Brezhnev in 1964, the satellites were to publicize the Chinese narcotics operation to draw attention away from the Soviet activities. One of the more interesting instructions was not to draw attention to the banks and financial institutions. Because of their important role in the money laundering phase of the operation, the Soviets did not want any attention directed their way.
During the Vietnam War, both the Soviets and the Chinese competed in providing a ready supply of drugs and narcotics to U.S. servicemen. The Soviets and Czechs worked with the North Vietnamese to produce narcotics in North Vietnam. The products were shipped through Thailand and via the Viet Cong to the U.S. forces in the south. By 1967, the Soviet intelligence services estimated that the use of drugs against the U.S. soldiers had become even more effective than it had been in the Korean War.
In 1967 the Soviets directed an intensification of the narcotics war — in Cuba and throughout Latin America, in technology theft operations, against a new class the Soviets had just identified, the "technical elite", and against the U.S. and NATO military forces — as Savinkin explained, to corrupt the officers, recruit agents, and impair the functioning of soldiers. In the fall, Moscow again summoned all the satellite intelligence chiefs to a meeting to receive instructions to speed the exploitation of the many opportunities that had become available, especially the growing antagonism of the youth of America.
Over the past fifteen years international narcotics trafficking has multiplied manyfold. It now has solid roots in all Latin American countries. It has corrupted countless Latin American officials, and one must assume many in the United States as well, and has led to the brutal torture and murder of U.S. DEA agents and to the ruthless killing of public officials who have attempted to resist the drug dealers, most notably the 24 justices in Colombia. It has become married to international terrorism, whose links to the Soviet Union the U.S. Government also remains reluctant to confront. And, drug-associated corruption has become one of the principal means of Soviet agent recruitment through blackmail and intimidation. This, on top of the magnitude of the domestic problems, is why fighting the drug business has become so important.
Unfortunately, while government efforts to combat the drug and narcotics problem have steadily increased over the past thirty years, drug trafficking has increased even faster. This is not so surprising when we recognize that the government efforts do not take into account the principal sponsors and organizers of international narcotics trafficking: the Soviet Union and Communist China. How can the United States expect to combat effectively the drug and narcotics problem until we first become willing to acknowledge the major role played by Communist countries, especially the role of the Soviet Union? The answer is, we cannot.
However, it is tragic that recognizing the essence of Soviet strategy does not appear to be in the cards. U.S. policy is governed by political and financial interests that want to see business with the Soviet-bloc nations increased. To manage this expansion of détente, it is important that the Soviets be seen in the best light, and this means not allowing any adverse publicity to see the light of day and avoiding anything that might be considered confrontational or anti-Soviet.
U.S. policy ignores what the Soviets mean by the word "peace" (that is, the state achieved when all democratic societies have been destroyed). Ideology is unimportant to U.S. policy-makers, especially Marxist-Leninist ideology. There is no recognition of Soviet strategy that is designed to bring about our destruction using all possible means and tactics. And above all, the U.S. policy community refuses to recognize the Soviet use of what may be their most powerful weapon in their drive to cripple our society: drugs and narcotics.
America and the Soviet Union are in the era of Détente II. Ronald Reagan calls the Soviets and their leader Gorbachev our "new partner in building a better world". George Shultz and Frank Carlucci are negotiating the disarmament of America even as Ron and Nancy toast vodka under the Soviet flag in Moscow with Mikhail and Raisa. William Verity and top American business leaders seek to increase aid, trade and high technology transfer to the Soviets, far above the fourfold increase which has already occurred during the Reagan era. And the U.S. Congress has just voted overwhelmingly (i.e., 93 to 5) to implement an INF treaty which will disarm Western Europe and set the stage for a collapse of NATO, the neutralization of Western Europe, and perhaps Soviet invasion over the next 3 - 5 years. And while there is great celebration among American leaders, the Soviet orchestrated drug network is pumping billions of dollars of drugs into America to demoralize and alienate our youth, to corrupt our leaders, to undermine our will to resist, and to set America up for the fall.
Meanwhile, as our Congress, our President (Mr. Reagan) and his astrologer wife, and the media are celebrating their INF victory and the new era of peace, accommodation, brotherhood and partnership which has emerged with the Soviets, we are reminded of another great celebration which occurred in a corrupt and decadent era in ancient Babylon (Daniel 5). King Belshazzar was throwing a lavish banquet to celebrate the greatness and invincibility of his kingdom. Suddenly there was a large hand which began to write on the wall: Mene, Tekel, Upsarin. The prophet Daniel was called in to interpret the writing: Mene — God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end; Tekel — You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; Upsarin — your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. Daniel 5:30 records: "That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom."
