thewest.com.au/news/crime/australias-biggest-drug-bust-over-1-billion-methamphetamine-seized-in-geraldton-ng-b88698342z

A state and Federal police operation in Geraldton has resulted in Australia’s biggest ever methamphetamine bust, with 1.2 tonnes of the drug allegedly seized from a boat moored at the Mid-West city's marina.

The joint operation culminated in a pre-dawn raid on the 16m vessel early yesterday and the arrest of at least six people who have all faced the Geraldton Magistrate’s Court charged with possessing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug.

It is understood the drug haul could have fetched more than $1 billion dollars if it had been allowed to hit Australian streets.

Didn't the Australian Navy arrest 3 boats in the Persian Gulf this week with nearly a billion dollars of hash and coke on it?

The real question, how many shipments don't get intercepted. Only when supply dries up on the street, or prices go up, or down, will they know which way that is trending.

HONG KONG — China has a major meth problem. The drug can be a pick-up, a pastime, or something that builds trust—or addiction. It mostly comes from North Korea and it’s been flooding northeastern provinces for years. Domestic distribution networks then move the drug west and south to reach more users.

I have seen workers abuse it in Chinese electronics factories so they can stay awake when trudging through unending shifts. Camgirls (models who perform or strip online for a fee) and karaoke hostesses smoke it with their clients, who call the practice “ice-skating.” Businessmen who dabble in too many vices share it for a brotherly bond. Chinese celebrities apprehended in drug crackdowns often admit to using meth.

Production of this speed was once organized by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea as a way to keep its foreign currency slush fund afloat. The operation was overseen by Bureau 39 (also called Office 39 and Room 39), a secretive component of the Kim regime that does anything from forging high-quality American currency to running a chain of restaurants. More heinous is the production and sale of narcotics.

Poppy farms existed in North Korea in the 1970s, and the DPRK developed an opiate production program for export. But major floods and agricultural disasters devastated the crops. Switching to something that could be made in a lab quickly and in large quantities provided two benefits: It suited the regime’s need to raise large amounts of foreign currency, and domestic use of meth killed the actual, physical hunger of a starving population.

Aside from narcotics and counterfeit currency, knockoff pharmaceuticals and cigarettes contribute to the illicit income of the DPRK. In all, Bureau 39’s illicit activities might be adding as much as $1 billion to Pyongyang’s coffers every year.

At home, North Koreans might see meth as something of a luxury. During Chuseok, a festival to give thanks for bountiful harvests that doubles in the North as a chance to offer bribes, beef and meth were popular gifts for officials.

The DPRK is hugely reliant on China. The two Peoples’ Republics have messy ties, but it’s one of the few meaningful relationships that the DPRK has. Beijing provides aid to Kim Jong-un, and traders from North Korea cross into China to conduct business. China is the Kim family’s backer on the world stage, propping up the hermit kingdom’s economy despite its belligerence

   They All lack the leadership of the USA, there is only one Donald Trump.

A Man of Substance who has achieved ,    has the family unit to serve as an example of his success.
A Man who has a no nonsense approach to his Countries duties to themselves and Allies.
    The only President in recent times who hasn't chosen the soft option of doing nothing.
      THANK GOD FOR THE YANKS.
