POWs

Just a thought.. IF it’s a ‘War on drugs’.. then are all those who are rounded up & prosecuted (esp. incarcerated) actually ‘Prisoners of WAR ?’

I watched a doco. yesterday, about the ‘black power’ movement in 1967-75 USA. They said that the massive increase in Heroin use amongst ‘negroes’, was as a result of supply by the CIA. They said that it was a way to distract/divert the unemployed youth from becoming involved. They also mentioned that many, saw those that are prosecuted in the Drug War, as ‘POWs’..

btw : In recent times the Drug war in many countries. is becoming increasingly militarized !!
