is an indisputable connection between terrorists and illegal
drugs. Police, FBI, and other government officials confirmed
this close connection, but changes in the modern world made
this linkage extra important in the day by day lives of all
American people. Terrorist's organizations and drug distribution
groups are cooperate in a jointly-beneficial relationship
by money, strategy, geopolitics and transportation schemes.
Financial infrastructure of terror networks mainly based on
to drugs sells. More than 42% of the known terrorist's organizations
known by the United States Department of State in October
2001 were also involved in drugs traffic. Drug revenue is
the most important source of income for numerous of the more
dominant international terrorist organizations.
(FARC) Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia obtain over
$300,000,000 from illegal drugs yearly. The (AUC) United Self
Defense Forces of Colombia relies on the illicit drug trade
for main part of its income. Shining Path from Peru is more
reliant on drug money than ever before. Osama Bin Laden and
his Al Qaeda network, used revenues from opium and heroin
to stay in power together with Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan controlled more than 3/4 of the world's opium
trade, and it was income to the Taliban.
has brought the terrible realism of terror into the lives
of all American people. Lots of people are asking, "How
did this happen?" and "What can I do?" The
association between terror and drugs is an important part
of the problem, as is the identification that individual choice
about using drugs has really high and dramatic cost.
