 Taliban To Start Its 'Chemical Jihad': Flood UK With Heroin
Given its long romance with drug abuse, the Taliban has decided to use Britain's Achilles' Heel to its lethal advantage. The zealous outfit's latest plans include waging a "chemical jihad" on Britain. The process would include flooding UK streets with heroin; with hate-filled Muslim gangs acting as key heroin dealers.

Pakistan and Afghanistan based Al-Qaida and Taliban warlords have directed their dealers a task to sell a six billion pounds of heroin to non-Muslims.

The Taliban's two-faced chemical attack is not only aimed at killing many with heroin, but also to collect massive sums to sponsor future terror attacks.

The Daily Star quoted a senior security source, as saying, "the Afghan poppy fields are probably the biggest financial contributor to al-Qaida and the Taliban. The UK's heroin trade is increasing at an alarming rate and most of the cash helps arm terrorists with bombs and guns."

Already, the US has been targeted by the Taliban in a similar evil scheme, which mirrors a terror plot in the new James Bond novel 'Devil May Care'.

Taliban linked drug peddler Haji Baz Mohammed generated 17 billion pounds by pouring heroin into North America between 1990 and 2005.

He told a US court, "Selling heroin was a jihad because they were taking Americans' money and the heroin was killing them".

With a whopping thirty tonnes of heroin smuggled into Britain every year, the UK undoubtedly is the top target of the fanatics.

Heroin is grown in the Afghan badlands and bought for 1,500 pounds per kilo in Pakistan. It's finally sold on Britain's streets between 30 to 50 pounds per gram.

Often, the Asian gangs operating in South London, Luton, Preston, Manchester, Leeds, Oldham, Birmingham and Bradford sell heroin in the backs of cabs or over kebab shop counters.

One such cabdriver revealed a lot about the spreading heroin attack in the UK.

"Poppy fields between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The big bosses have Taliban and al-Qaida connections and we're often told only to deal it to non-Muslims. They call it -chemical jihad and hope to ruin lives while -getting massive payouts at the same time.

The drug gangs have already spread misery in thousands of lives. Greg Yates is one of 280,000 addicts in the UK. Huddled up and shaking on a bridge near Luton rail station, the 42-year-old former mechanic told us his 80 pounds-a-day habit had destroyed his life.

"I can't function without the hits. I've lost my job, my home and my family. Heroin has killed me," he sobbed.
