Cash draws al-Qaeda, commie rebels and African despots into three-way deal
For Asian Correspondent readers who might be unaware, Blair's Law is the ongoing process by which the world's multiple idiocies are becoming one giant, useless force. The classic example had been Leftists who supported 9/11 as a reap what ye sow payback by al-Qaeda. A recent teaming up is a better example still.
It seems that a sort of triangular trade has developed amongst Leftist FARC rebels in South America who export cocaine to Africa's tin pot despots where al-Qaeda takes the cocaine and distributes it via its international network through North Africa into Europe. There are, of course, huge profits to be made, the money financing all sort of nefarious activities, including terrorism.
To facilitate transport of the tons of cocaine required to meet an apparently insatiable demand, a fleet of aircraft, ranging from small corporate style aircraft all the way to Boeing 727s, is at this very moment transporting cocaine, cash and weaponry back and forth between South America and Africa. This massive criminal scheme was first detected in 2008 but was pretty much ignored because the various government agencies didn't realise the scale of the operation.
So here we have communist rebels teaming up with self-interested despots of various stripes with Islamonutters as the bag men. Politics has nothing on cold hard cash when it comes to making strange bedfellows.
