War on drugs

 .

Human rights: ‘only for good guys’
.
Help end addiction  war on drugs,  corruption and child abuse   crackdown on illegal drugs . The Philippines’s  President Rodrigo Duterte came to power on his promise to crack down on crime. Shabu is the Philippines slang term for the highly addictive crystal methamphetamine which is the most popular illegal drug in the country. Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte  says try drugs themselves to fully grasp the seriousness of the problem.
.
Duterte’s dirty drug war Philippines Police figures show 7,042 people have been killed during the campaign, 2,250 in anti-drugs operations. teams are coordinated to execute a list of targets: suspected drug users, dealers and criminals. “We are not that bad policemen or bad individuals. We are just a tool, we are just angels that God gave talent to, you know, to get these bad souls back to heaven and cleanse them.” pending cases that identified hardened criminals on drugs and hardened murderers, we are going to have to neutralise them  The team investigates the individuals to determine whether they are involved in drug dealing or other illegal activities, whether they are “God-fearing” or a “parasite”, and then acts accordingly. 
.
The police have been given a licence from the president to crack down on drugs and crime.  Of the 3,600-plus deaths so far, 1,375 have been killed in above-board police operations, while about 2,233 more have been put down to vigilantes  Duterte,  So far he appears to have the public on his side – a July poll by Pulse Asia Research showed his approval rating at 91%. It is not also easy to disregard the success of the anti-illegal drug trade campaign 
.
The   Philippines is showing initial success in eradicating the drug menace and in preventing the Philippines from becoming a Narco-state. President Duterte’s war against illegal drug trade has reduced criminality by 50% nationwide, and with its limited resources the government has placed the drug addicts in rehabilitation centers.
.
Japan PM offers Philippines drug war support  “As the Philippines pursues its campaign to destroy the illegal drug trade apparatus, we welcome the expression of interest of Japan to support measures to address the tremendous social cost of drug addiction,” Duterte has said he will not stop the crackdown until every last drug-related drug criminal is dead.
.
NOW the Philippines’ policy has helped restore law and order to the country; while Canada, the US has been too soft. In the U.S.,  drug users “don’t go to prison,” claiming that by failing to crack down on people with “marijuana cigarettes,” the government has allowed the illegal drug trade to flourish.
 .
Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and drug use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors. Such self-destructive behaviors, in the case of addiction to drugs, also lead to the destruction of the family, which spells danger and doom to any nation – the family being the basic unit of society. Strong, healthy families constitute a solid foundation, like a rock, assuring a nation’s vibrant future.

 And meanwhile  in Canada
.
Booze, drugs and smokes: Canada is 23rd on Global Vice Index
.
Concerns about drugs prompt street security .More enforcement of drug laws.“We need zero tolerance for drug dealers, they are just preying on the most vulnerable of people,” . The police have issued a warning that a tainted batch of heroin or fentanyl may be making its way around the area.   The deaths were linked to fentanyl . Most people who overdose on fentanyl have been taking heroin or other opioids. The drug has also been found linked to cocaine and methamphetamine, but that is less common, he said.  Drug overdose deaths double in 2016 Some British Columbians support the idea to try to stem the growing number of deaths caused by overdoses of fentanyl, which is often mixed into streets drugs such as heroin and cocaine. But others oppose using public funds to buy drugs for those already suffering addictions.
.
Organized crime groups and gangs in Canada are more likely to produce and traffic drugs such as crystal methamphetamine and cocaine than they are cannabis,  organized crime groups were linked to 75 percent of all heroin-trafficking cases, 62 percent of all cocaine-trafficking cases, and 60 percent of all methamphetamine-trafficking cases; they were linked to 39 percent of all cannabis-trafficking cases, and to just 6 percent of all cannabis cultivation cases.  This contradicts common Royal Canadian Mounted Police wisdom and that the researchers’ definition of “organized crime” – three or more people who commit a serious crime to profit – is misleading.
.
There is also a  lot of marijuana around, but estimates of usage are unreliable given the legal environment surrounding marijuana use. The central question in this disturbing situation is what effect will marijuana legalization have on this serious drug problem?
.
Heroin abuse is tightly tied to prescription drug abuse. Almost half of people addicted to heroin are also addicted to painkillers. People are 40 times more likely to be addicted to heroin if they are addicted to prescription painkillers. Abuse of prescription painkillers is incredibly common . While it’s true that heroin abuse has skyrocketed in the last years, prescription drug abuse is more common. The number of overdose deaths from prescription pain medication is larger than those of heroin and cocaine combined.
.
Most addiction programs do not work.
.
Researchers with personal financial ties to pharmaceutical companies tend to publish studies casting those companies’ drugs in a positive light 76 per cent of the studies that cast the drugs in a positive light were led by investigators that had direct financial ties to the companies producing the drugs. By contrast, only 49 per cent of the negative studies had lead investigators with a monetary tie to the drug companies in question.

Canada hastens falsely to World war III

nato

US president Obama visits Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa and the next day Canada announces it  will send troops to NATO .  Canada to send 450 soldiers, up to 6 fighter jets to eastern Europe,  Canada will take command of a 1,000-strong multinational force in Latvia, as the alliance beefs up its presence in the Baltics and Poland to stop Russian Supposed  Aggression.

.
NATO and Russia are on the brink of a new Cold War, Canada is out of the frying pan into the fire. NATO and the U.S. are the enemy and Russia must be ready for attack.
NATO is upset over Russia  annexations of Crimea , a prime Russian Military base, so Vladimir Putin is already being turned into the new Hitler,  as Canada sends scarce troops to Poland and Estonia. This is supposedly in response to a ‘Russian threat’ to these countries for which there is no actual evidence, Russia has denied any such intentions, and instead has accused NATO of instigating the current standoff by expanding into former Soviet territory and trying to undermine its sphere of influence. It has also warned against any military build-up on its borders. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow is willing to co-operate with NATO, even though he said the alliance is treating Russia like an enemy.  There is absolutely nothing to suggest that Russia had ever wanted to expand beyond its national neighborhood and subdue any territory within Western Europe up to the Atlantic Ocean. Problems with Russia only occur when a foreign power encroaches upon its neighboring areas. Interference into Russia’s geopolitical neighborhood was exactly what Western Europe, with the help of the US, has been largely practicing since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
.
Countries today across Eastern Europe are militarizing to defend themselves from Russia.  The increase in defense spending in the Baltics is  linked to the growing confrontation between Russia and the West,  the ‘new Cold War. “They’re not at all capable of doing anything offensive into Russia.” https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2016/11/03/decade-long-false-demonization-of-putin-by-the-us-democratic-political-media-establishment
russia
When NATO soldiers march along the Russian border and NATO jets fly by, it’s not the Russians  who are moving closer to World war III.” The three Baltic states —- Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia — have sizeable Russian populations, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government has responded  to NATO with hardware and a planned buildup of troops.
 .
NATO  has grown  to meet the threat it had itself provoked and  shall once again create a war out of their  own exaggerated fears and by believing their  own propaganda. Russia says any presence of NATO troops close to its borders is a threat to its security and warns it will take measures to respond . NATO expansion has led to Russian rearmament and then nullification of arms; treaties negotiated as the cold war neared its endpoint.  
.

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall!” – the Soviet leader tried to negotiate with the West. And, to his mind, he succeeded: an understanding was reached with Washington that the Russians would allow German reunification on the condition that the NATO alliance would not expand eastward. “That promise was not kept. Instead, the lobbyists, both foreign and domestic, went into overdrive in a campaign to extend NATO to the very gates of Moscow .
.
Russia’s military build-up and increasing Anti-Access/Area Denial capabilities in Kaliningrad and its expanded operations in the Arctic, the Black Sea, the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and in Syria aim to deny United States access to key areas of Eurasia and often pose direct challenges to stated United States interests.” And the main target of these military preparations is Russia. The latest Russian nuclear-powered submarine is so quiet it’s known as the Black Hole, and one of them spent an entire month patrolling the US coasts without the US Navy aware of its presence. These super stealthy subs can strike at US targets without much risk. Russian defense circles are sure of conventional and nuclear superiority on sea and land. And the Pentagon knows it. Russia would reduce NATO forces to smithereens in a matter of hours. And then would come Washington’s stark choice: accept ignominious defeat or escalate to tactical nuclear weapons. The Pentagon knows that Russia has the air and missile defense capabilities to counter anything NATO’s non-stop Russia demonizing is in fact quaint. Think about NATO picking a fight against the constantly evolving, complex Russia-China strategic partnership.

.

 Russian military is a highly potent force. As it has exhibited in power plays in Syria, Crimea and Ukraine, Russia can take on the combined forces of NATO without working up a sweat. Similarly, China and India are capable of defending their respective territories and interests. Both are nuclear armed and have powerful naval fleets that can blast American gunboat diplomacy right out of the water. China is also facing encirclement. Washington is ramping up naval activity in the Pacific and also pouring its forces into Australia – aimed squarely at Beijing. However, Beijing doesn’t face the kind of existential threat as Moscow.

.

NATO itself is  the US and Great Britain.  Basically both US President Dwight Eisenhower and Winston Churchill  were Jews who hated Russia. This  North Atlantic Alliance wants to use the territories of its new members in Eastern Europe as a bridgehead for a massive military deployment against Russia, the analyst continued. Moreover, contrary to its name, NATO is not an alliance of equals, but a subjugation of partner armies by the United States and the United Kingdom. Indeed, all member armies of this supposed “alliance” are under the command of a single US officer who is also commander of American forces in Europe-while the secret service of NATO, the “Gladio”, under the joint authority of Washington and London, ensures that the anti-imperialists never come to power in the other Member States Russia – its military power may be a shadow of the mighty Soviet Union but even the much smaller successor. Europe has missed its chance to revive close and respectful ties with Russia due to its arrogant, provocative bullying advocated by the US.
.

 After liberating Western Europe in 1945, the United Kingdom and the United States decide to recast it, by creating the United States of Europe. American foreign policy does deserve to be challenged and debated vigorously. America is not God.    Wars are the mother and father of atrocities, and one day they will come home to North America , if they  keep launching them against others. Americans are loosing the lead. Their global domination today in fact is melting. America’s elites already have failed  and disappointed the world.  That is, the  goal of the United States , Great Britain  NATO – to pin down, and even to crush Russia, as they do with those smaller countries that try to resist. That’s all: the goal of global West is to stop the independent foreign policy of Russia.  The Western powers have launched provocative military;  “exercises” that cannot be seen by the Russians as anything other than a dress rehearsal for war – and the Kremlin has reacted accordingly.

.
NATO really is not capable to defend itself from a possible Russian attack in Europe, Some  Western officials and military analysts say that warnings of a severe and imminent threat from Russia are overblown and in some cases amount to scaremongering aimed at boosting military budgets.
.
NATO’S  twin-pronged attack – oil price war/raid on the ruble – aimed at destroying the Russian economy and place it into a form of Western natural resource vassalage has already failed.
imrs
.
All NATO applicants must upgrade their military forces in order to meet uniform standards, and this meant a windfall for the military-industrial complex – with Lockheed first in line.  Boeing and others next..
.

“With NATO’s military infrastructure edging ever closer to the Russian border, Moscow has been forced to meet the challenge by demonstrating its own military might. It is Russia’s refusal to roll over which is apparently making the Americans so nervous…””Concern is growing about NATO’s military policy and its unfriendly attitude toward Russia,”

.

NATO intends to prohibit Russia’s and China’s Development    Both Brazil and India are being intensely penetrated by America’s National Security Agency, with Edward Snowden revealing that the Brazilian Prime Minister’s phone conversations were tapped. Such kind of intense cyber snooping is geared towards obtaining economic and political intelligence, which is again just short of direct war.
.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry   lambastes the “demonization” of Russia. The American authorities continue the unacceptable practice of “hunting” for Russians all over the world, ignoring the norms of international laws and twisting other states’ arms,” the ministry said.

 .
The irrelevant NATO, all it can do NOW is cry, cry, cry. because it is failing to be relevant..
