Apparently, Zionists corner the market on illegal drugs as well

Apropos to my earlier item on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad saying that Israel has a monopoly on pharmaceuticals, one of his generals is accusing Israel and the US of being behind the world's illegal drug trade as well:

A senior Iranian commander took the US and the Zionist regime of Israel responsible for the spread of drug addiction in the world, stressing that they use drugs as a biological weapon against the freedom-seeking nations.

"The US and the Zionist regime are pioneers of drug distribution in the world and the world arrogant powers use drugs as a biological weapon against the freedom-seeking nations," Commander of Iran's Basij Forces Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Monday.

The arrogant powers want to pocket the money earned through the production and trafficking of the drugs, which is the second profitable source of capital after weapons smuggling, and spread addiction among target populations, he added, reminding that most of the American addicts are from the Blacks.

The drug problem will not be uprooted in the world until arrogant powers are annihilated, the commander underlined.

He described Afghanistan as the main source of drug production in the world, and underlined that NATO forces in Afghanistan are currently in control of 8,000 tons of drugs which they aim to smuggle into other countries to captivate their nations through addiction.
It looks like this guy might have been on something himself when he said this. Must've been good stuff.

(FARS writes the bolded part above as "until the arrogant powers are not annihilated" but that doesn't make sense, so I assumed that the "not" was a mistake. I couldn't find the article on their Arabic,Turkish or Persian sites.)
