Keyhan, the mouthpiece newspaper belonging to Fuehrer Mullah Khamnei, in an article entitled "THEY OWE US", written by an unknown individual with the pen name "Nasser Bahrami-Rod" suggested that in order to deflect the high cost of combating drugs in Iran a transit route for the shipment of drugs to Europe and America should be opened up. According to Advaar News, the news source from the office of fostering unity, a part of this note claims: "there is no reason why a large part of the human and financial continued cost of our country could not consistently be spent on a battle whose price is being paid by 'Iran' and whose profits are being gleaned in the western world. If the noncompliance of westerners and the international organizations under their control continues, there are other ways to deal with the situation; for example a corridor can be opened inside the least populated parts of Iran, that can be entirely controlled by of the convoys carrying the drugs, guaranteeing them safe passage and their cargo can then, ultimately go wherever it needs to go.

I have read reports several years ago that this "corridor" is a fact, and the profit is going to some Mullahs and officers in the IRGC. What they are suggestion now, it seems, is to make this an official policy i.e. legalized the drug smuggling operation. Who will take the profit now?

Is this a lead?: All that said, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic regime, Ayatollah Khamnei's estimated 50-year-long Opium addiction has been an open secret in Iran and among Iranians of all socio-political strata.

We'd better help get rid of the regime fast, or the opiated masses will be too many to help do the job.
